My Opinions

I got a hard time thinking of what Haruki looks like.
I'll definitely see what Yuuki gonna be
No problems with Kyonko and Itsuki
Mikuru trap character? Works fine
It really bothers me a lot about the Comp. club members...
Hmm Taniguchi would be like Mayumi Thyme-like character
I dunno the rest....

I must have missed it due to all the colored Kyonko around it. Yeah. Definitely that. And Itsuki-chan's raging lesbianism. Yeah...

Moving on...

Hmm...

I don't think we really need to change the situations. A giant butterfly doesn't strike me as menacing as a huge cricket.

I think what we're going after is the changed reactions of everyone to the same situations. Although we'll have to change some of the character situations to fit the gender swaps. Like with male Suzumiya trying to impart manliness to shota Asahina. Stuff like that.

Laziness is not good for you. I have experienced that firsthand many, many times. Please continue your fine work.

How does the post of vector artist sound to you?

You mean something like this?

Spoiler for Asahina Mitsuru joins the SOS Brigade:


Names are easily changeable with a search-and-replace. I just hammered this out on a whim, because Inspiration Cannot Wait.

EDIT: Changed an two inappropriate "her" to "him". This is a lot harder than I thought.

EDIT: Changed "Minoru" to "Mitsuru" based on popular vote.

We're well on our way if we can keep coming up with stuff like this. I think you should start collaborating with Kaisos on the writing.

Especially seeing as how Inspiration Cannot Wait. That is something I can understand very well.

I'm a little shocked. The genderswitching... in a few areas, it actually seems to make the anime work BETTER. And I have yet to see any real snags anybody's hitting.

Do you think we might catch the attention of somebody important? Aparently there's a fandom in Korea... This is getting pretty big.

There's us, the Koreans, the Chinese, and of course the original Japanese Haruhiists working on this. And there may be more coming. Between all the groups working on these genderbending projects, someone's bound to notice eventually.

Well... there are some scenes that might seem a little too overboard due to the gender-swap, like Haruhi dragging Kyon by the collar through a hallway, or Yuki round-kneeing Kyon inside Asakura's world.

And then there is the issue of the bunny-suits... keep them (for maximum mind-breaking hilarity), or find a masculine equivalent?

Neo-Haruhi: "I'm secure enough in my masculinity to wear these bunny-suits!"
Neo-Kyon: *clawing eyes out*

Also... there is one scene in Vol.02 that will lose a lot of its impact due to the gender switch, as the idea of a girl psychically hitting a boy is not as dramatic as a boy beating on a girl.

Cheers.

Suzumiya could literally pick up Kyonko and carry her off. And something tells me the Asakura world segment will be a little tricky. We already had a bit of a discussion on whether the weapon should still be a knife.

Kaisos recommended Speedos as a replacement for bunny suits. I still have no comment there.

And which scene in volume 2 are you talking about?

Kanpai.

A strip on that concert was funny. Haruki wore the bunny suit for the concert instead of speedo.
(since I cannot reconcile Haruki nor Asakura in my mind, I refuse to mentally think of the two normally.)

Oh god. Thinking of all the affected scenes makes my head spin. But it'll still be fun to figure out.

Possibly they'll dress up as the Playgirl equivalent of the Playboy Bunny. That, or they'll just go around with the Exposed Pecs thing.

Anyway, currently I'm actually kind of stuck on a certain scene. Or, to be more precise, a certain scene which the anime completely skipped over, since it didn't matter that much.

It's the one where Kyon meets Yuki at the park, Yuki takes them to her apartment, gives Kyon the infodump, and the Kyon goes home. Simple, right?

Except that if you do the genderswap, Kyonko meets Yuuki at the park, Yuuki takes her to his apartment (the comedy of which was already featured in an earlier 4-koma), Yuuki infodumps, and now Kyonko has to go home alone in the late night darkness.

While the actual danger in reality may or may not be exaggerated, this is sometimes crudely known as "asking for it".

I'm not sure if Yuuki will be versed enough in gentlemanly behaviour to escort Kyonko home (to the astonishment of Kyonko no Otouto, perhaps). Another option would be for Koizumi to mysteriously arrive to pick her up, which would require a bit of shuffling around of events.

EDIT TO ADD:

I'm imagining that Asakura would have no weapon at all.

Compare nightmare-inducement: Ryou Asakura advancing on Kyonko with a dagger, or Ryou Asakura advancing on Kyonko with nothing but his bare hands, ready to strangle her... or worse.

Well, as far as weapon changes... I don't see any reason to switch from a knife. Granted, bare hands ARE sonething to be scared of, especially when he's already proven that not only can he seal off the room, but Kyon-ko suddenly can't move at all.

On the other hand... At that state of vunerability, if the bastard's holding a knife, you know what's going to happen. You're getting shanked. Bare hands though, makes it a question of how exactly he's going to do it.

But then, knives are efficiant (My spelling sucks people, if that's wrong), and that's why I think either gender of Ryou would stick with it. Slit her throat, and leave. No questions asked, and plenty of time to get away before they are.

Also, no matter what happens, Yuuki has to have a badass level equivilant to Sephiroth's when he comes in to the rescue. Killing Kyon-ko is sin, pure and simple.

...It doesn't help matters that I was still a Yuki fanboy before this happened, I guess...

That will never change.

I finished my first draft of the prologue, but I think I made Kyon-ko a bit too feminine with all the shojou references...

Tell me what you guys think.


Spoiler:


Also, RmX, that scene that he's referring to in Vol 2. is the one where Kyon tries to hit Haruhi... somehow we're going to have to change that.
