Back onto the knife argument, I'm now casting my vote to leave the weapon as is, after looking back on the discussion that occurred earlier in the day.

And no matter how one tries to accomplish it, attempting to kill Kyon-ko IS a sin, as Raijinken so aptly stated yesterday.

I've decided to call girly Kyon "Kyon-chan."

The more I say chan, the more I like it.

i find it doesnt make too much difference if its a knife or sword. both are scary as hell to go up against. the point is still the same: stick the pointy end into the opponent while avoid getting stuck with the opponent's blade. lol sorry for the pun

Kyon... now that you mention it, I'd wanna see a contrast crossover of Kyon and Kyou suddenly.

And yes, I am in opinion of leaving Asakura and knife as-is. I find the setting of Kyon being actually stronger than anyone had anticipated by 'her' hard swings with either a bat or a chair to be rather fun as things to keep consistent with the original settings.

knife? doesn't really matter what he's holding long as he is trying to kill Kyonko.
You can either be creative and get a another weapon (I recommend lightsaber, but this is just me)
Or just stick with knife.

Recent trends in anime seem to have the katana as more feminine, especially when you factor in the offical art for Daibanchou, which has the main heroines using the hero's katana. They are not cutting people with it. They are wearing it.

And again, remember, Asakura isn't going to be concerned on issues such as manliness, he's going to go for an efficient and effective weapon in a crowded classroom. Hence K-BAR or combat knife.

Besides, while the knife has shorter range, it allows Asakura to get up close and personal with Kyon-chan.

Yeah. Your's was the most compelling argument. Especially in considering what the humanoid interfaces represent. Yuki already has implied that vocal speech is some kind of inefficient mode of communication. So in Asakura's case, I'm sure the use of a knife was seen as the most effective means of removing the Kyon variable from the Suzumiya Haruhi equation.

I agree. Let Asakura use the knife. Would like to see how he thinks of Kyon-chan when he gets up and close with her (much to Haruki's dismay). Besides, Asakura isn't Asakura without T3H KNIFE.

On the other hand...

Kyon-chan? *tries to think Haruki calling Kyon-chan, and Kyon-chan snaps at the embarrassingly cute suffix*



*brain explodes*

Seriously, that mental image makes Kyon-chan more attractive than any pic.

"Dear Diary,

Today at school, Haruki was really mean! He kept pulling me everywhere, and I don't like how he kept on fondling my breasts!

Minoru, however, looked at me! That boy is just too cute! I really like him, Diary, and you're the only one who understands!

-Kyon-ko"

Being female automatically makes her a bit more feminine, ya know. I plan to have her mention that she's mostly grown out of those fantasies, though.


As for the whole Shana-ish thing, I meant physically.
Reading the original novel, actually no since I can only read English but I have read a translated version. Unfortunately, I saw the anime first then read the novel later so that could be coloring my perceptions but which girl in her right mind wants to get kidnapped even in a fantasy?

Let's wait for our image hunter to deliver on that one then.

For some reason, I feel that in development of Kyon-chan, the character shouldn't really change the traits such as being responsible, have some computing skills (but that hidden folder of Mikuru* would be a laugh riot), being well versed and having an unusual understanding of humanities, history and literature.


..."This is just awesome! I'm in awe of myself. I got sharp eyes for fashion! You in that Yukata could make 100% of all men drop dead."

Thought Haruki said that 5% of men are immune to women since they're gay.

"That's because we here have a shota! The rule of five in a hundred being gay works flawlessly, and don't you forget about that!"

I don't see a point in remembering this.

Asahina-sempai for some reason doesn't seem to deny his... 'cuteness' as he gives himself a dressing down in front of the mirror over the dressing room.

"So this is the traditional clothings of this country! Although it's a bit tight around the waist, it actually looks pretty nice..."

This would be the most 'dignifying' of all the drag getup that Haruki has forced onto Asahina-sempai. Not nearly as 'provocative' as the leotard/bunny suit nor as bizarre as the butler/maid uniform. Rather, here be something that's more 'befitting' for this time of the year, being synonymous for summer and all. For all intents and purposes, this getup actually suits him well, and nobody would be the wiser typically. It's just that... o well, so long as he does look 'cute' in the garment. I can't help but feel sorry for Asahina-sempai. I think I wouldn't mind covering for him given how innocent he appears... almost with a mystical divine aura of buddha actually, and of course I wouldn't ever do anything close to covering for Haruki if things ever head south for him.

Well, Haruhi pulls Kyon by the tie, so pulling by the bow would be the same, AKA, fondling the breasts.

Woah woah woah. To avoid such things we had Haruki just pick Kyon-chan up and carry her off to the clubroom.

Aw...

Thinking of it, I wonder how far Haruki would go, knowing full well that Kyon-ko is female... And would she sexually abuse Minoru to the same extent? Hm...

Haruki is Kamina hot blood at his core, with a few parts suave prince a la Ouran's Tamaki, with a dash of Harima Kenji/Sagara Sousuke's clueless tendencies.

Oh yeah and I think the consensus is that Asahina's given name is now Mitsuru, as Shinn87 wrote on his initial blog post.
