And technically, our work is not his.

Just thought I'd mention that.

Yeah I know. I still prefer the knife too. But the influence of artistry is not something to be taken lightly.

Can you edit the first post with a poll about the knife then?

And in case we do decide on the sword, what kind of sword IS that? A tanto?

A meme, actually. Not that it matters.

Looks like a tanto with a hilt. You don't see 'em like that a lot.

So how do you think that Kyon-ko would describe it? A shortsword?

Calling it a "hilted tanto" kinda ruins the drama... compare that to "KNIFE!"

poor Kyon. Asakura didn't even give her the time to chuck that legendary chair at mach speed.

Call it what you will I guess. The closest thing is a wakizashi I would think.

And I can't make a poll.

A kodachi is way long sometimes.

Really doesn't fit for Kyon-ko to throw that chair at 'mach speed'. More like scream and wait to be rescued.

(Yes, I know I'm being sexist. I'm also being a realist.)

Mmm, so are we going with the kodachi or the knife? Which is better?

PS The artist just replied me too

Well the sword scenario looks like it gives Ryo the opportunity to give Kyon-chan some choice words before her throat gets slit. Flirting with her before she meets her end. Sounds like something that would happen in shoujo too. The knife doesn't permit this as much.

Please continue your work in that department.

Hmm. Isn't unexpected physical strength a part of moe elements? Who knew that Kyon (original) was able to do that then... I can picture the hilarity when:

It's ironic that I have to 'carry' Haruki. I thought it's the other way around...
"Waita sec! I need to get that Rich n Pulpy drink! Turn left over the next corner, Kyon!"
Grr...
"Now you're showing distinction as a member of the SOS Brigade, Kyon!"
Yea, as a packed mule.

//goes back to think about what to draw next

Mmm, that's true. A lot of the original Haruhi is Kyon's childhood dreams turning into nightmarish equivalents. We can do the same here.

My problem is that "wakazashi" doesn't have an easy English equivalent that I can work with.

Cross that bridge when I come to it then.

So we're going with the wakazashi/kodachi/whatever then?

I guess so.

We've derived this much from the great work of the fanartist. Why stop now?
