I find myself agreeing with those who say that Haruki isn't unique enough if we simply paste Haruhi's original personality onto a male character. That's what made Haruhi such an engaging character originally, to have such an unorthodox personality for a heroine. I'm not saying that abandoning the original character is also good, but I keep feeling like this is becoming just a big pile of moe revolving around Kyonko, and I'm not really sure that I like it.

Don't get me wrong, I fap to love Kyonko and Itsuko, and I think it'd still be interesting if Haruhi, Yuki, and Mikuru were males(well, apply that to ANYONE, really, slut!Taniguchi makes me happy), but when I think of the original, I can't help but think 'how disappointing...this is as far as it can go?'

The way I see it, as it is, it's essentially Ouran with aliens. Obviously, there are major differences in character, but you get what I mean, right?

Well, regardless, I do like the idea, I'm just a little sad that as of now, it's not better than it is.

I'll probably write my own version for kicks, compare it to yours later and see what differences there are.

I've envisioned it as Ouran with aliens from the start, really...

We're not really pasting Haruhi's personality onto Haruki... we're pasting Kamina's personality onto Haruki. (With a side order of Tamaki and a slight sprinking of Kenji Harima.)

True enough, although I can't help but feel they're actually very similar at first glance.

Tell me what you guys think.

Also, RmX, that scene that he's referring to in Vol 2. is the one where Kyon tries to hit Haruhi... somehow we're going to have to change that.

So Im guessing your part of this genderbending project? Oh, and nice prologue, it suits the MoHS version.

Wow, great thread. Somehow genderbending REALLY fits SHnY. In fact, all seems to click into place beautifully when it's bent. I'm going wild imagining it. ^^

As for Asakuro attacking Kyonko...yeah, he's gonna look like such a bastard. But that's fine. For a weapon, definately something bladed. Katana would work, maybe an ornate rapier. Maybe have him accidentally slash away some of Kyonko's clothes to add nosebleeds in the scene that will follow. Other characters needing makeovers...well, most is already processed. I think Shamisen (Sanshin?) will work without a bending. :P

It's getting late. If I go to sleep now I'll be sure to awaken with some kind of insight.

I'm not one for gender bending - but this project looks like a lot of fun :O It' piques my interest...

The project has certainly caught my artistic interest >.>'

With that, it was implied Kyon was going to smack Haruhi one.
The only idea I can come up with is that Kyonko actually goes through with punching/slapping Haruki?

Anybody who posts in this thread is considered a part of the project, whether it be helping to write the story, finding images to boost our creativity, making your own pictures/sketches/vectors, or providing encouragement and support in general.

Hmm. On the topic if more shoujo-esque influences, we could modify the sci-fi elements a bit to make it flow a bit better. The only other thing I have is "sailor girls" should be "magical girls".

Otherwise, we're doing good.

That reminds me of Konata trying to pander to people with "special needs". And Nagato seems to be one of them.

I did the "sailor girls" line on purpose... you can refer to mahou shoujo like that too...

I also simply added some more traditionally feminine things, but due to Kyon-ko being a tsundere, I can imagine her being into "guy stuff" too...

You can change what you want if you see fit, too.

I suppose. But I'll have to take a look sometime later. Continue as you will.

Several people are working on their own novel translations, myself included. Some random Japanese guy is making doujins.

No official website for this yet, though I COULD make one...

Amazing writing Kaisos. I liked Kyon-ko's character, of COURSE she's going to look at heroism from every angle. Girls can do that. Back then, we sure couldn't, cause if it was like 'Save me' from a girl, men would be like 'HELL YEAH!'

A guy says 'save me' and the other guys are like 'Oh go save yourself. Pansy.'

Tsundere says she also wants to be on the saving side, I guess. And media would put ideas of that nature in her head, of course. Stupid Sailor Moon... You've inspired the growing up of ass-kicking women but I still hate you so.

And I still think Ryou uses a knife on Kyon-ko, until Yuuki appears to save the day and make the fangirls scream. And maybe a few bi-curious fanboys.

Perhaps he switches to something a little bigger when he realizes he's in for a fight? And Yuuki takes something to match? Sky's the limit. Ryou could make that ornate rapier, and Yuuki could take a katana. Perhaps Ryou could make a lance instead, and Yuuki a battle-axe?

Wish Yuki did that in the origional series, take an axe. Mmmm... Presea...
