It seems that the fourth novel with new cover was sold out at some stores (blame the Disappearance movie).

It's rather interesting that only the panorama cover is selling out when the one that isn't part of a set is still available.

I would like to preface my next comment with this statement: THIS IS NOT REAL. IT IS A FAKE! Someone on 2ch made a mock-up of what he/she thought the Surprise cover would look like in the panorama shot.
Spoiler:

I've even used a different host than my normal account to make sure everyone knows that THIS IS A FAKE so that there isn't a rumor going around that the cover's been released when it hasn't.

You can tell that the image wasn't meant to come together since the rails are off slightly by Sasaki and the pole by her is lower than the one by Kyon. Since we've had much discussion over whether the sides were supposed to come together, I thought this would be of interest to everyone.

Sasaki is already on the cover to a previous volume. Surprise should be Kyon and
Spoiler for Volume 9, 10:

You should probably change the filename for the picture to something obviously fake instead of "suprisemockup.jpg", which could be a legitimate (if misspelled) internal filename. Won't stop anyone who is intent on using it for trolling, but it may at least stop a few random Google Image hunters from making a mistaken assumption...

It's no DA or -ch(an), but the Animesuki forums do have a fair image presence on the net.

What a splendid idea! I have changed the link, however I cannot delete the old one since I do not have an account at that site, so hopefully it will be deleted soon due to no use. It would make sense to use that person to connect the panorama together even though Sasaki is on the cover of the normal edition. I haven't been able to see into an inner cover of the first one, so I do not know if Kyon is on that part or not which may solve this whole dilemma.

Maybe because Novel 9 was divided into alternating chapters of the same story in 2 variations. Which would be an indication for different dimensions and with that the possibility of a

Anyone who gets along with Haruhi or stops her from being bored is related to the 3 factions.

I haven't really kept up the series except in bits and pieces, but regarding "Slider-Girl", how aren't we sure she isn't just psychic? It seems really late in the game to introduce a slider even though one's suggested from the start. Haruhi's writer must've been awfully sure of him/herself that the series's popularity (of lack of) would even go 9 or 10 volumes before introducing an ultra-late character. Perhaps, in that case, the author might also be exploiting a built-in "oversight" hole in a "casual" slider mention early the novel/manga, kind of like George Lucas did with Star Wars as Guinness mentioned long ago; Lucas did Star Wars as a one-shot homage to old Flash Gordon serials (the REAL reason for that "Episode IV" rolling teaser) like American Graffiti was for the fifties before Star War's totally off the wall surprise success had Lucas scrambling to do a real set of sequels.

Also, if there's a slider, I wager there's a big outfit or government behind him or her to explain the tech enabling the slider unless we want to dip into magic which is a whole different neighborhood. Maybe they discovered that the infinite dimensions they used to cavort around suddenly aren't infinite anymore (like the 3 year thing). But I'm slowly coming around to the belief that Haruhi's not God, but a recipient of god-like powers since it seems they can be hijacked or circumvented by "underlings". I think a Big Kahuna's amusing him/herself.

IMHO,

What about Sakanaki? Does she count as someone who gets along with Haruhi? I'm trying to figure out what you mean by "gets along with".

"gets along"

- client of Haruhi
- in the SOS Brigade
- gets along with Haruhi (same wavelength) [with the exception of Sakanaka (forgot the name) who's a normal client)
- related to the 3/4 factions.

If so, has Slider-tan shown any indication of warming up to Kyon and Mikuru? That would be a huge hint if that's the case... and messing up Kyon's life even further.

Sakanaka is the girl in Volume 8 with the dog. As a member of Haruhi and Kyon's class, the KyoAni animators have animated her in the background of their class shots from the very first episode. This is what she looks like.

We don't see enough of Slider-tan to get any solid clues.
