To paraphrase Itsuki: "If you aren't careful, you might become your facade." (Said to the school council president, I believe.)

It doesn't matter either way to be honest, barring any doujin work; both Itsuki and Itsuko are supposed to be mysterious, so it's supposed to be hard to figure out if they're serious or not.

(Since someone didn't say this..)
Danchou! What does the scouter say about the postcount?!

I agree there.

Ya know, the novels do hint a lot that Itsuki does have some sort of interest in Haruhi... though they equally hint that he's gay for Kyon.

Itsuki's excuse for acting gay? If he didn't, Haruhi would rewrite him so that he IS gay.

We can use this.

The rules were that Danchou would say "It's OVER 9000!" and the next poster would say "WHAT? 9000?"

But you all ruined it now.

Even though you say that, there seems to be a lack of non-professional interest in Haruki on Itsuko's part, at least in what was written thus far.

And about your thousandth post rule, I apologize, I did not know.

But what were the exact steps to it? I do remember that the 9000'th post was supposed to have something in it, which I assume would have been this:

But I couldn't remember the formalized steps.


Regardless, here is a suggestion: have someone archive all posts after 8999, then do the correct "over 9000" steps, and then repost the archived posts that are not associated with this discussion of the over-9000 thing.

...It's the first novel. There wasn't any there, either.

It only starts showing up in Endless Eight and Volume 4.

So it would be that a more than professional interest grew until then. But I would find it hard to believe that Itsuko would undergo the same for Haruki with the way she's being depicted.

Sure, the flirting is a facade, but the portrayal makes it as though she is genuinely gay for Kyonko.

And you guys are having a dilemma over what it seems like I should not have done, should I just remove it?

*sigh* Now is when I cry about "otaku stench".

Despite the fandom, I don't think we should have Itsuko be gay for Kyon-chan. I don't like it and it creates problems later.

Itsuko has had little in the way of portrayal up until now, really. This is due to the content of the original, in which Itsuki was a character the author thought up at the last minute, in order to fill in the role of esper that was originally meant for Kyon.

One of the major reasons Itsuki gets no character development-- there was no plan for him.

I don't see how you can call her a lesbian when very little of that behavior had been shown.

To be fair, Itsuki's interest in Haruhi came out of left field, too, although that was because of the alternate world in Vol. 4... and he did say how much he admired her a lot.

Don't bother.

Just how important is Itsuki's interest in Haruhi?

Not that important. YET.

I have no idea if the author is going to use that as a major plot point later or not-- this is why I refuse to change too much of the character interaction or plot, for fear of screwing ourselves later.

(This is the same problem the people who made the Harry Potter movies are now having.)

So I think we should keep that in.

Dammit I overslept.

And I don't think that Itsuko should be openly all RAGING LESBIAN in the novel writes, but we can still work with that whole flirtatious facade thing, no?

So... how about she pretending to be? Or at least ambiguously so? Then reinforce the fact it's fake by Kyon's inner monologue? That'd roughly match the canon version.

Hmmm, it took longer than expected...

...But by the God Empress and St. Nagato-chi the Thread is over 9000!? On the very day they are to duel each other in the International SaiMoe League. A sign perhaps?

For me, your reminder was the sign! A sign from Our Great Goddess Nagato reminding me to vote for her!

I love support you, Nagachin!!!!

Random question, guys~

Does anyone have the "Kyonko version" lyrics of Kentai Life Returns or HHY? I want to fandub them. <3

Actually, I'm going to be fandubbing some of the work that's already been animated or doing a radioplay of the novels soon. If anybody's interested in participating, please let me know!
