It would be funny if Haruhi found out about the alternate brigade by discovering the nature of their being time traveler, alien, and ESPer.

She didn't believe Kyon when he told her about Mikuru, Yuki and Itsuki, so I kinda doubt she'd believe the claims of some strangers about that kind of thing.
If they decided to prove it to her, though, that'd be a whole different bucket of fish.

Well just finished novel 7. Poor Kyon, after a few suggestive lines, doesn't look like he gets to live a normal life even after highschool. Which also means that this series could go through many more books.

Of course, since they have a time traveler they should be able to find out some of what has happened. What would Haruhi think if one of them mentioned that the symbol she drew in middle school ment "I am here, come look for me" in an alien language and then told her that Kyon helped her draw it and then told her that his name was John Smith.

I'd say anyone who travels through time is technically a time traveler...
Spoiler:


Actually this novel should be a cause of celebration for Kyonists. It suggests that while Kyon can exist without the SOS Brigade, it can't exist without him. It also suggests that Suzumiya type "gods" are a dime a dozen (or at least as common in Tanigawa's world as data manipulating aliens, ESPers, and time travellers). While the three other members of the SOS Brigade have different alliances (and are suspicious of the organizations to which the other members belong): both Koizumi and Nagato have pledged loyalty to Kyon, and Mikuru is taking orders from her superiors based on Kyon's recommendations.

It's obvious that Kyon's not a god because he's far more important.

The timeline has been updated to include vol 8 as well as the names of two new characters introduced in vol 7 but only first mentioned in vol 9.

Perhaps Kyon, when he wished that ESPers, Time Travelers, Aliens, and Sliders really existed, actually sent the powers to a number of differen't girls who were capable of using them. But Haruhi was the one who became unstable and started using them. And Kyon is the key. In order for them to fully utilize the powers he has to be around.

And I really like the new aliens hair. I wonder what it would look like in ponytails.

i have a quick question regarding the novels:

i have not started reading them yet, but is the order of the novels (volumes, chapters) in a chronological order, unlike the anime?

The novels technically aren't in chronological order, but they're a lot less confusing than the anime. If you read the novels in the order they were published, they'll make perfect sense. This is probably because unlike the anime, the novels don't interrupt one story arc with another. They merely switch the story arcs around (like, Endless Eight after Disappearance).

Spoiler for Volume 9:
Do remember, she is an Esper just like Itsuki.
And what do we know about Itsuki? A smiling yes-man who goes with the flow and has no opinions of his own, or isn't he?

The Espers are a devious lot who never ever show their true selves. The girl should be no exception.

So who is this mysterious girl?

Spoiler:

From what you've described, my guess is that the mysterious girl is Yoshimura Miyoko.

The big question on my mind is: Is Kyon aware of both storylines?
