... I'd say "Easy darkfic; just remove Haruhi," but... yeah, that just ends up having Kyon verbally attack "random" female students.

And that is why Vol. 4 is amazing.

Why do we need a darker and edgier Haruhi anyway?

We don't, really. It's just for fun.

Remember...Trope subversion is also a Haruhi way. Make you think they'll follow a trope and then use a different one instead...or invent one...just because...she can.

BTW, what are we supposed to make of the fact that (according to Baka-Tsuki) Vol. 10 has an ISBN number? Does that mean that the work is actually written/finished, and the publication delay is really just that? Is the work being rewritten, or was it never finished to begin with? Is there a god? Oh wait...

One theory is that she's an alternate version of Kyon's sister... something like that.

In any case, a hell of a lot worse things are happening in Beta. Yuki especially seems doomed.

You don't do an alternate universe story like this unless you're going to epically destroy one universe.

I mean, it could be an alternate dataspace, but Yuki would most definitely notice.

Unless it's Kyon and only Kyon trapped in that dataspace. Which would be gloriously mindfuck.

But then again... it's "alpha". That alone implies that it comes first.
Well, it wouldn't be the first time, in a way. The alternate reality versions of Haruhi, Koizumi, and Mikuru were "wiped out" after Yuki from a few weeks later undid her previous incarnation's re-write.

In the Alpha verse, I think everyone but Yuki might just be a copy---like Koizumi suggested they might all be in Snow Mountain Syndrome, copies of the original data like a game save. The Yuki the Alpha-thread might be an exception, and Kuyoh had to trap her data in the space instead of making a copy. What's left of Yuki in the real world is suffering from her fever because a part of her has been sealed off.

Once assigned, an ISBN can never be reused. An ISBN is printed on the lower portion of the back cover of a book above the bar code and on the copyright page.
Basically? It means nothing.

The 9th volume of the manga and the 3rd volume (normal edition) of the Haruhi-chan manga were also released on the same day.

So, judging by the cover art of the ninth volume, it's that last bit of Disappearance (around the end of chapter 4 to the epilogue?). I like that picture of Asakura; nice change from the 3 female leads. After this, they should do Charmed At First Sight LOVER, right?

Also, what's Festival supposed to be? A collection of the manga?

Festival would be a collection of Doujin mangas.

Mmmm. Delicious Asakura.

Volume 9 of the manga covers the remainder of Disappearance, the epilouge, and ends with a "parallel world" story.

And yes, the next volume preview is for Charmed at First Sight LOVER.

On a slightly un-related note, there is a new Haruhi spin-off manga: Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu or The Vanishing of Nagato Yuki-chan. It seems to be following what would have happened if Kyon's memory had also been erased during the events of Disappearance

Link to raw because I have no image uploading account. My appologies if this is against the rules. I will remove it if it is.

-Link Removed- Sorry about that. I should probably go read the rules better.

I'm not entirely sure on the rules when it comes to raw manga... but I think it's okay as long as it's unlicensed. Or maybe that's just fan translations...

That is what I thought while reading it. Just like they did in Snow Mountain Syndrome, but there isn't enough info yet to do anything except guess.

If you mean used it as a threat then okay, yeah he has sort of used it.

If you mean to convince Haruhi, I don't think he has.
He has, just not the normal Haruhi. Remember how alt-Haruhi wasn't being very friendly until he used the code to introduce himself? She was hanging off his every word afterwords.

I was just thinking along the lines of the "darker and edgier" thing---but in the novels, Kyon seems to be a bit less of a cynic than he appears in the anime. Or maybe it's more that he becomes so as the story progresses.
