Crazy Mion is crazy.
It gets crazier when you find out the truth behind that arc... and my god, that arc has the best first and last episodes of the entirety of Higurashi.

I find the aftermath rather funny, because, in Higurashi, "transferring out" is used as a creepy euphemism for "dying horribly and mysteriously".

Fits well, don't it?
Woot i enjoyed this chapter alot. Btw what's with the SQL?

I'm in despair! Those who miss the point of Suzumiya Haruhi no Seitenkan have left me in despair!

Seriously though, it's an honor to be hated by that rabid pack of douchefuckers, apparently. It means we're well known.

GOD I HATE 4CHAN.

(Disclaimer: Anything I say when I'm this tired should not be taken seriously.)

It's in the original. It's how Nagato originally did data manipulation, before it was retconned into her speaking really quickly.

In the anime, if you slow down what she's saying and play it backwards, it's just SQL statements.

I did find it odd that the little clip at the beginning of the arc (with Rika stabbing herself in the head...repeatedly...) wasn't in the arc itself; does that have something to do with it?

...Anyway, no more off-topicness from me tonight, for 'tis bedtime!


EDIT: Wait...just thought of something. Is it true that Asakura's sped-up talking isn't actually a set of SQL statements? I had heard/read something to that effect.....

Nice job! ^^ And I, too, love Higurashi no naku koro ni (kai). You could make the suggestion even stronger by having Kyonko say:

Mmm, small problem with that. The Japanese terms, for those unfamiliar with Higurashi, will be bewildering and obtuse. Rather, go with "...being spirited away. No, being demoned away. Are you happy now?" That way, those unfamiliar with the source material still gets a chuckle, and us Higurashi fans get to nod sagely, recognizing the origin. >_>

Supposedly, she's asking Nagato if she loves Kyon. However, I can't really say for certain what's being said there, so I'm going mainly by hearsay.


As for the little debate I was involved in, obviously it had no effect whatsoever on anything of discernible value, so I see no reason to continue. Besides, I'm not really in the proper mindset to keep myself under control at the moment, so it wouldn't do much good if I tried to continue, anyway.

*e*
Actually, forget it. I'm going to speak my mind right now, otherwise this will end up getting even farther out of hand by the time I can collect myself.

The very fact that so much setup has to be added into the story for a change that isn't even needed should be more than enough proof that this is a horrible idea.
Taniguchi(m) freaked out and ran away before Kyon could explain things. Taniguchi(f) has not only taken several pictures, but also calmly walks out while teasing Kyonko. Not to mention the fact that this turns her from being a friend to being an outright {female dog}.

Like I had mentioned before, the ACTUAL reason for Haruhi feeling betrayed was the fact that she walked in on Mikuru being on top of Kyon. As far as anyone knows, the only place she's even aware Kyon actually kept the Mikuru pictures is within the anime's storyline. In addition, having Haruki move clear across the clubroom to see what Kyonko's doing should give Kyonko a lot more time to get out of the folder than what Kyon had with Mikuru standing right next to him.

Even if we're going to have Kyonko's reaction speed be a lot slower than Kyon's, the Yuuki pictures pretty much have to be in the same exact folder as the Mitsuru ones. If we're really going to have Haruki see one of those pictures, the odds that he won't end up seeing everything else in it are lower than lightning striking in the same place twice. This turns what was basically a misunderstanding into Haruki actually finding out that Kyonko "betrayed" him.

This also leads to another problem. If Kyonko doesn't find Mitsuru to be at least somewhat attractive, why would she even bother to keep the pictures of him in a maid outfit in the first place? We can't get rid of them, as they're used as the proof she needs that Mitsuru really is from the future.


That being said, I'm done arguing this point for now. If I'm the only one giving reasons why this is a bad idea, then maybe I'm wrong and just being ridiculously stubborn. As it stands, there's no real reason for me to continue bringing up the point, as it's only dragging the thread(and as a result, the project itself) down.

I still don't find Haruki's jealousy of Kyonko's motherly/sisterly relationship with Mitsuru as...strong? compelling? (can't find the right word)...as the more romantic canon relationship between Kyon & Mikuru (even if it's kind of superficial, it seems clear to me that Kyon and Mikuru are both interested in the other). But I have to admit he could still be upset that this relationship is stronger than his own relationship with Kyonko.

There's no hard feelings I hope; I'm not going to apologize for being passionate about this and neither should you (it's the fuel that keeps this project going), but I hope I haven't been riling you up too much .

/edit/ Ack, then you edited your post, and now I want to poke at it some more...I ought to resist but I can't

I wish you would've put that up about three minutes sooner

Another thing, it feels really odd to be referred to as "Kogetsu Shirogane," so feel free to drop one of the names.

Well, if there aren't any you haven't seen in this or the image thread, I wouldn't know about any more comics.

Have we any god-damn consensus about the whole Asakura rape thing?

Personally I think it's out of character for Asakura and too damn traumatizing to Kyonko.

I'm going to freaking finish this editjob, even if it kills me.

Chapter Five, Part Four, GIIIIGAAAA EDDDITJOB BREEAAAAKKKEEERRRR!!!!!!

Spoiler for tl;dr:


tl;dr, I changed the bit where Asakura chops off Kyonko's hairband to imply less 'rape' but leave the 'hit on' joke intact. Because I reckon it's funnier and less traumatic that way.

Having someone toy with you like that is still traumatic... which still allows me to use Aebliss's (?) ideas for later. (I think it was Aebliss...)

*sigh* Also, you got rid of my references to the prologue... How she starts praying for sudden supernatural powers... and then, when that doesn't work, she prays for a saviour, and then BAM, Nagato bursts in.

I thought that was well done...

Taniguchi(m) isn't that nice to Kyon either. Genderbending it, Taniguchi has been made into The Libby, and, as such, that is exactly the sort of thing she'd do.

Because the maid outfit CONSUMES ALL. And because he looks like an adorable little girl in it.


I like the Yuuki idea. Mitsuuru isn't enough of a threat, because Haruki KNOWS that Kyon-chan doesn't think of him like that, although he does know that Mitsuuru has feelings for Kyon-chan. He can't blame Kyon-chan for anything involving Mitsuuru.

With Yuuki, however, it's much easier.

I have NO idea...

I do know what I'm going to do with Adult Mitsuuru, though...

I'd actually like some consensus on the whole Yuuki thing before I begin. I want to do it, but if everyone is opposed to it I'll somehow figure out a legitimate way for Haruki to want to end the world. After all, Mitsuuru isn't enough of a threat or a reason.
