The images of Boredom and Indignation don't synch perfectly with the others, and Anger's right side is faded unlike the left side of Dissociation. Other than that, it works well.
I still can't figure out why on earth "Fujiwara" is on the cover of Boredom. I mean, that's who it is, right? The other anti-SOS are included, so I figure he would be, too, but why there?

Also, the more I look at the whole image, the more I like that Sasaki and Kyon are going in different directions and are on complete opposite ends. It might mean nothing, but it feels a little bit symbolic to me, and I like it.

He's only there so people can make comparisons between him and Koizumi. Or something.

Besides, Big Mikuru, Kimidori, SCP, and Arakawa are also on covers for books that don't feature them, so why single him out?

Spoiler:

I attempted to match the covers with this preview, but there are some alterations.
The top of the image was cropped off, along with most of Kyon (but I think that he'll be in the inner cover). That pretty much prevented me from matching everything up 1-to-1, so I made the best one I could given the source image.

Oh, and I hereby reject my statement earlier about the SCP and Kimidori in Indignation. Elections may have been held following the festival according to Anger.

Hmm... noting the guard rail/fence, is it a circular poster? Seems both ends would basically line up beside Kyon's hand possibly being partially cut off.

It very well may possibly become that way if a person wanted it to become circular. I chose to use the first light pole as a nice break point and came up with this mockup:

An interesting thought. I'd expand on it and speculate that it isn't complete yet, and was planned with novel 10 in mind. The rest of Kyon's hand could be on it.

10th cover features Kyon's hand and a currently unnamed girl confirmed?

Forgot about her momentarily. I was trying to figure out what could go into the 10th volume to have more characters in the picture. Lol I fail.

Another possibility would be Miyoko.

Is everyone forgetting the slider girl?

Also, Miyoko has never had an illustration, although she appears once in the anime.

Who did you think I meant by "a currently unnamed girl"?

Since the covers presumably don't include Kyon (even though the inner illustration does), Volume 10 could conceivably include Kyon and Slider-tan. By popular theory, that would mean that in the assembled picture, a different version of the same character appears twice twice.

Dang, Kaisos... First you're feeding the "10 and out" trolls and now you're stating unfounded rumor as fact. You feeling well?

Oh come on, it's totally her in Melancholy VI. She's Kyon's Sister's friend, has a ponytail, and is noticeably taller than either the sister or her other friend. That or my memory is failing me.

If KyoAni put Sakanaka into the anime, I'm pretty sure they could put Miyoko in.

And I'm feeding the "Novel 10 in the finale" trolls because given Kadokawa's track record with this series, it's probably going to be.

I am no longer armed with my "quote fu" or else I would find some in-novel way to refute your baseless argument that that slightly taller (or slightly closer) girl in yellow is Miyoko (thank you Hachette). ^_^

As for Sakanaka, she does appear in the novels (in one pic, I believe, but enough to verify the character design), and more importantly she's in Kyon and Haruhi's class. We have just as much of a chance seeing her in classroom background shots as we do Kunikida or Taniguchi, or Ryoko before she "moves to Canada", so if KyoAni didn't put her in there, they'd lose their status as the continuity whores that they are. Actually, I think she gets more background shots than the other three. Seems like every time there's an establishing shot, she worms herself in there somewhere. She's like the Sheila Jackson Lee of Haruhi (local politics joke you're not expected to get).

Now if you get me some proof that Ito approved the character design for that obviously-the-same-age-as-Imouto girl in yellow, I'll allow it.

Eh, I wasn't concerned that the book doesn't feature him so much as that he's on the cover of the third book, when there is no sign of him in the story until the sixth book. Or seventh. I forget which one is which. (It feels a bit like a spoiler, I guess. Or like putting, uhm, Sean Connery on a movie poster for Raiders of the Lost Ark. Or putting Luna Lovegood on a cover illustration for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - both characters exist in-universe when these stories took place, but they don't actually appear for several installments, and people who haven't got to those installments yet will be completely unfamiliar with the characters. I guess it's kind of like false advertising, maybe?)

I know there were rumors going around about the reason for the delay, but I've only heard about them way down the grapevine. One was about how much Tanigawa was getting in royalties, I think? Is there any weight to that one? Because if it is true, and there's a dispute about how much he gets from Kadokawa, I wouldn't be surprised if he ties everything up with #10, even if only out of spite.
