Can someone explain the 'Disappearance of Haruhi' for me?
I know I should really go to the movie forum for this but for some reason that msg board has not been visited since September so I thought I'd try my chances here. There's only one thread on that msg board but its basically the same question and reading the answers on the thread only succeed in confusing me even more:P
Alright, I've watched the movie a good four times now, both in jap and english and I still find myself confused at exactly the same spot. For me, the plot and its inner workings on alt dimensions and time travel are all good with me right up until Kyon wakes up in the hospital completely okay, no stab wound, and is then told he ends up there b/c he fell (pushed) down the stairs.
HUH?! When, where, how, why? First, the guy was stabbed pretty good, where did his stab wound go? Second, whats up with him being pushed down the stairs? Why is that necessary?! For me, that incident is totally unnecessary and the most confusing.
From my standpoint, if Future Kyon shoots Yuki with the restablizier gun or whatever after Protagonist Kyon was stabbed that should've reset everything. Kyon should've just woken up in his bed on Dec 18 with no stabwound, but at the very least still keep his memories of the whole experience. I know his kept memories are another loophole but whatever I'm willing to let that one slide for plot convenience if someone can just explain the other stuff for me ;_;. Pretty please.
