I saw that from the first viewing of the live stream. You'll also notice that she's not there in the SOS-dan reaction shot to the appearance of Priest-zilla. She must've thought "Oh this has bad idea written all over it. How about I go stand way over there and join you once it stops raining pigeon crap?"

You know, this arc has them shooting off [toy] guns in public a lot. Sometimes at innocent bystanders. You'd think they'd get in trouble or something lol

THEY GET AWAY WITH IT BECAUSE HARUHI-SAMA WILLS IT SO!

... Actually it's just because they run away a lot and no one catches 'em.

Hmm...

Sorry to bring up the whole K-On-ification issue again. I'm not that big on visual aspects, as plot and character development are more important to me, but these are my thoughts on the matter:

Mikuru actually looks better with the slight K-On-ification

Nagato isn't really that noticable unless you put them side by side, so I don't think it's much of an issue for her.

Kozumi and Kyon loked terrible when they were K-Onified, but that was only in that one episode of Endless Eight, and they haven't been really modified that much from the original since- which is a good thing I think.

Haruhi is the most noticeable- particularly since there are several scenes that make her look a lot like Yui. Personally I prefer the older version of Haruhi, but watching Sighs I have to say that the K-On-ification can work, if only because the contrast between Haruhi's cute exterior and her jerkish behavior are really played up by the art shift.

So I guess I can get used to it.

What I'm really sad about is Tsuruya. She also seemed slightly K-On-ified in this episode. Especially her face which is more round, and her hair which is less... bishoujo? If that's the right word for it. Maybe it's just because I haven't got used to it yet, but it saddened me because I think Tsuruya's elegant outward appearance combined with Genki Girl personality really was a nice contrast.

Ryoko had a similar contrast going on, I hope she doesn't get K-On-ified too.

Anyway, Tsuruya's appearance was what I think was new this episode in the whole K-On-ification debate.

Not that a small issue like this will turn me away from watching, but maybe Kyo-Ani is losing it's touch. I'd hate for them to become pigeon-holed into one type of animation style.

After watching episode 12... I don't see where Haruhi is K-Onified in this episode. Many of her facial expressions are just about identical to her facial expressions in the classic 2006 style. Also, Haruhi has regained her somewhat unique open smile, which had been Yui-fied for a while.

The only K-On-ifed element that remains is lack of line definition (such as broken closed smiles - i.e. instead of one solid line for the smile, we have a half-smile line and then a little bit more line added in after a break). Other than that (and it's not even constant - frequently, you do have line definition), Haruhi looks to be back on 2006 model to me. Aside from degree of line definition, is there anything about Haruhi's look in this episode that makes you think K-On or Yui?

As for line definition... well, it's such a small part of the artwork, that if everything else is the way I like it, I'll let it slide.

I agree with you here. However, I'm pretty much happy with the art style in this episode.

For the Mikuru Beam scene, Yuki crossed that entire distance in about six steps touching the ground.

Okay, this episode was a LOT better than the last two. I honestly can't think of any problems, other than the fact that Tsuruya looked like a cardboard cutout when Haruhi was yelling on the phone.

I don't know if this was mentioned before, but I was wondering if, in the scene where Haruhi hits Mikuru with the plastic megaphone, whether part of her rant towards Mikuru was a subliminal message to Kyon saying "Hey! I can be as cute as her too if I wanted to!"

A bit off topic, but I was just wondering if there was anyone else that thought so too when they saw this scene.

I liked the fact that it looked like Haruhi was about to whack her in the head, stopped just short and tapped her.

You know, so they keep the requirement of Haruhi hitting her on the head without making her look like a monster.

I also think that the "rerun" get s better and better and I really liked the new Tsuruya-san. Her K-On! touch fits her fine I think. The only thing that bothers me a little bit, is that the characters do not blink as much as in 2006. But this might be just my bad memory .

It wonders me that nobody mentioned here that this episode really has some great John Woo references with the whole white doves -> pigeons thing and her double pistols. So that for the sake of completion I mention it now^^.

Haruhi in the battle waitress outfit? Yes! I find it cute that Haruhi is peeved at Kyon molesting her with his eyes. Now we need some images of Haruhi in that costume.

Tsuruya looks awesome no matter what style she's in! Anyone denying that must suffer the wrath of BaTsuruya!

That visual data would be... intriguing...

It's a really cute shot. Love how Haruhi is crossing her arms over her breasts. I have to admit that I get a chuckle out of the poetic justice of she who constantly plays up Mikuru's sex appeal feeling ogled a bit herself for a change.

Agreed. That's one piece of artwork that I'd really like to see someone attempt!

If it were anyone but Kyon, he'd probably be dead.

Mikuru Beam was just Haruhi giving shit back to Kyon.

I don't think she's actually peeved—it's just putting on an act that she's peeved. Look at Haruhi's reaction in the opening scene of Sighs II, in the train, once she realizes Kyon is staring at her. She wants to be stared at by Kyon.

Her reaction to the matching blue hoodies is also probably related to this, though it's much harder to read. ("Oh, awesome, we look like we match!")

I'm not so sure if the arm-crossing really means that. She also does that gesture before the ogling happens:

Spoiler for Image from Sighs III:


So it could go either way. As I said in another post, Haruhi clearly wants Kyon to stare at her. What lines she might want Kyon not to cross are impossible to tell, given that we just don't know what's going through that head of hers.
