Yeah, the OP/ED was much enjoyable. Fits the story theme beautifully. Have you got a storyboard for them yet?

Also, why don't someone rewrite the drama CDs? It would be much easier to produce.

Mitsuuru: Do really have to dance!?

Haruki: That's right. You'll be wearing a tube sock, Red Hot Chilli Peppers style! Make sure you do some pelvic thrusts!

Mitsuuru: NNOOOO!

o.o ... Um. A lot of good work has been done, here. The voice actor for Mitsuruu might make him a little less feeble. And the blackmail scene was just frightening! ^^;

There's another 'con in my area in May, so I might try it there if you guys don't find an animator or dedicated artist before then. Whoever tries to get someone online for this, I would recommend taking the very cream of fandom crop to show to them. Artists who show their work often already have their own agenda.

I think I will try my hand at writing one in a couple of weeks. After I'm through these two weeks of hell (Two tests this week. An essay and two assignments for the next.). Any suggestions on what I could do?

I feel like editing everything all over again now that I hear those episodes.

But hot DAMN, that's AMAZING.

EDIT:

Holy Shit, Taniguchi is GREAT.

EDITEDIT:

Although I am beginning to dislike Haruki's voice...

And damnit... he sounds like too much of an asshole.

EDITEDITEDIT:

God damnit, this is what I get for not editing those first chapters.

And I really don't think the VA for Asakura is appropriate.

COMPLAIN COMPLAIN COMPLAIN, it's all I know how to do.

He IS an asshole, though.

And damn, I should get around to reediting those first chapters for consistency...

Persona 3 is just so addicting, though...

Taniguchi's voice reminds me so much of Lucy van Pelt strangely.

EDIT: And also Ino from Naruto.

Nitpick: Kyonko's VA is inconsistent with rolling her 'r's.
Nitpick: Haruki sounds perfect and somewhat off at the same time.
Nitpick: Taniguchi sounds great.
Nitpick: Same notes on Haruki on Kunikida.

More nitpicks-that-might-not-actually-be-nitpicks later.

In my opinion, Haruki sounds a bit off. He sounds like one of those cliche heroes you see in shounen anime. The voice just kind of...irks me.
Ryou sounds a bit off, too. I don't know what exactly it is, but it doesn't really sound right...

Kyonko sounds good. I like her voice. :]
Yuuki sounds good, also.

Taniguchi is perfect. Exactly how I pictured her to sound. No questions asked.

Kunikida...I kind of pictured her voice to be higher, since she's a loli. It's kind of weird to me.

He's not quite that bad, but that's one of the character types I wanted him to embody, along with Idiot Hero...

I'd agree with you that Haruki is becoming a Jerkass, but I think you might've misread the Jerkass trope...

Quote:
A character who is so offensively obnoxious that it is unbelievable anyone would willingly interact with him. Usually, the Rule Of Funny enables the people around the person to be able to live under the same roof as them without, y'know, blowing their brains out. Oftentimes, the Jerkass is the Plucky Comic Relief who's stepped off the beam and become irritating rather than funny, in which case the Rule of Funny fades away; they may be okay in the other characters' eyes, but the audience would still love to see them die with sharp objects in their head.
Jerkass is a MISTAKE made by the creators.

And NO, there really isn't a single "heart of gold" moment for Haruki.

I mean I know, Haruhi was also a Jerkass, but I still think it was considerably less so than our current Haruki. I mean at this point, reading through the entire thing from the beginning, I don't see how people could even stand reading about Jerkass Haruki. Just skip to all the parts with Kyonko/Itsuko/Yuuki/Mitsuuru.

No, read the trope again. What you're referring to is Jerkass Stu.

(Hilariously, reading through that, that's exactly how Haruki views himself. All the better.)

The Jerkass trope gives Tomo Takino as an example, and Azuma clearly intended her to be one.

There's this big war on the Haruhi Just Bugs Me page whether or not Haruhi is an evil sociopath or a Jerkass that undergoes character development.

Haruhi is forgivable because of her tits. That's the only reason.

She's a horrible, horrible, horrible, horrible bitch to everyone and everything throughout the entire story up until (chronologically) Live Alive.

I haven't gotten to that part yet.

And no, I'm not changing his behaviour at all. If he is more intolerable because he's male, THAT'S A GOOD THING. That's the point.

By your logic, since they do the same things, we all should hate Haruhi too.

That's pretty much what I do. There's a reason I've been considering making a "Haruki Dies" series of 4koma.

You know what you guys need? You guys need me.

And you'll get me. In a month.

And to add my two cents, Haruhi/ki is a Jerkass who evolves into a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

It's fine.

Haruki is supposed to be like this.

And he will get better, just like Haruhi did.

After all, Double Standard, right?

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD SUCH WOULD BE...

Oh, and for novel readers, I found this interesting theory about Vol. 10 on TV Tropes:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Some crazy on TvTropes
The Alpha/Beta parts of Volume 9 are the result of Kuyou Save Scumming.

The key bits of evidence that supports this theory both come from Snow Mountain Syndrome. First, Kuyou (and/or the Sky Canopy Domain), as it has been revealed, is responsible for the whole shabang. Second, in both situations, Nagato becomes weakened and Kyon considers momentarily to use his trump card should it come down to it.

That said, recall, if you will, Koizumi's hypothesis in Snow Mountain Syndrome that the SOS Brigade members in the mansion are duplicates of the real SOS Brigade, akin to a save file on a game, and that the perpetrator of the scenario was likely to have been intending to provoke Haruhi. Therefore, Kukyou and/or the Canopy Domain (hitherto only referred as "Kuyou" alone) is attempting this tactic again, this time in the real world so the SOS Brigade would be convinced that this "save" is the reality, as opposed to the "Controllable Helplessness" of the mansion, dismissing the possiblity of "escape". The "save point" is right when Kyon picks up the phone (since that's where the split occurs). The α save is the default reality, while the save is the alternate created by Kuyou, and it's no holds barred: disabling Nagato, the Anti-SOS meeting Kyon, etc. When Kuyou grabbed Kimidori's arm, she was disconnecting Kimidori from the Data Integrated Thought Entity and weakening her like she did with Nagato (it would be counterintuitive to have an active IDTE Interface in the save). Additionally, girl that catches Kyon's interest in the α save is the Slider, in the dimensional and spatial sense; in other words, not only can she slide between dimensions, but she can slide through space (hence how she entered the Clubroom; she's the mysterious twelfth first-year); she'll join as the Sixth Ranger.

What'll happen in the tenth novel with this in mind is still up in the air, but odds are that the Slider will use her powers to connect a link between the α and β saves to stop Kuyou, though from what the Slider tells Kyon on the phone, she is a duplicate created by the IDTE (or perhaps herself) that was sent back in time after the fact, because otherwise she'd end up dead in creating the α/β link.
Also, this.

I didn't really pay that much attention to (or edited) the beginning chapters when Haruki is completely unapproachable.

And I should've been more specific. I've already tried so far to keep his gigantic assholeness in check in my edits, but what I'm referring to at the moment is when Kyonko first meets Haruki. In that entire portion of the story, he is an incredible prick beyond all measures.

But I agree that we should make Haruki a Jerkass (for lack of a better term) TO A POINT.

And... the Jerkass Stu would only apply if you are purposely making him to be a Jerkass so that you can derive some pleasure from insulting characters in-universe. And I already consider Haruhi and Haruki as Mary Sue/Gary Stu, so that's covered.

A Jerkass character is NOT meant to be hated, but accepted as another part of the cast, albeit a particularly negative/unpleasant one, it's just that creator's miscalculate their unpleasantness and the audience starts hating their guts.

EDIT:

I love reading Haruhi theories cause they just get so damn crazy.
