That song is so damn catchy, and it's made even more so by that special ending. Ahhh, this is going to be stuck in my head for weeks to come!

Ooooooooooooww, the parapara ending dance is now finally fully animated.

At least it is the real deal unlike the others including the..

.. sweaty nearly-naked guys
.. Claymation
.. Gundam action figures
.. people wearing Scream masks
.. Spoo

Along with multiple cosplay skits, festivals and classrooms (lets not forget random episodes in the park and even in the streets) all across Japan who are afflicted with Haruism.

Personally, I want to see a full rock-out version of God Knows done right.

Great to finally see the full dance. Not much Kyon and Itsuki though...

What I'm scared about is if they're gonna try and translate it or not. The song (especially the end of the chorus) could be ruined by translating it.

How could translating it ruin it? Do you think Americans can't sing as well as the Japanese or something?

Translating is not equal to dubbing.

If soupcan58 was worried about the singing quality of americans, he/she would've protested against the whole dub in general, not just the translation of the song.

And gawds, what I'd do to see God Knows like that :s

Okay, how would subbing it ruin it? I haven't seen it, so I could be missing something, but I don't get it.

Things as sensitive as poetry always loose something in translation. It's just a matter of *how* much is lost, and if something else is inappropriately added, etc. Personally, I don't think the translation of the song'll be too bad -- the fansubbers were able to pull it off -- but y'know, with the connotations of 'God' in this country, they might twist it around to keep out of lawsuits or something.
