People are free to construct that as they please. Be it fluff or Ouran redux. I am questioning only on the basis of what is the limit of variance to the source.

Edit: That, and please, do not kill the cynicism that runs within the original source...
Hmm, that certainly is true. But say we keep Kyonko's ponytail fetish (which I have nothing against, mind you, I love it) how do we translate this to Haruki's apearance at school next day?

No reason it still couldn't be a ponytail. In the novel Haruhi's hair was too short for a real ponytail so she just did a random little one, Haruki could just pull as much of his hair as was long enough into a ponytail.

@ Panzerfan: completely agreed. As much as Kyon's massive denial/refusal to understand frustrates the hell out of me, it's an important character trait.

His hair certainly isn't long enough to pull of a ponytail that looks anything like one (while he could tie it up a little, it'd probably just end up as a little tassel behind his head)... And I can't really imagine him taking hair-extensions or anything either.

I guess a character with a ponytail fetish can make things a whole lot more difficult

We'd decided earlier that it'd be Kyon who gets the ponytail line at her the next morning, not Haruki, and Kyon angsting about what happened.

Anything else makes Haruki too feminine.

We could always balance it out with more GAR. Though I'm not sure is that's possible :O.

@clockworkangel :
how about the knife that was stricken into keiko's (a suggest name for female keiichi) right shirt pocket?
i dont see much of women's dresses that have a pocket on their right chest..
except that tamaru keiko-san wore a business suit at that time..

I took out the notepad for a main reason. Because in the old story it said that the knife pierced the notebook, so the suspect is male. Since everything has been genderbended. Well the only real suspect would be Mori, which isn't very convincing cause the other brother is away. So if I take away the notepad it means that the brother can still be suspect.

but i think the notebook holds an important point here because it was used in the trick..
or should we get another killing weapon? instead of knife..?

Well the notepad simply just helped confirm the trick. The weapon can be changed; but it would have to be something not out of place. Like a ceremonial katana. I think the fruit knife can still be used. But alternative can be used I guess. I'm on the way to beginning, I'll edit anything when a nice alternative has been found.

A thing we need to consider about using a Katana over a knife, is that Asakura wouldn't be able to conceal it without using his abilities before attacking Kyonko.

We'd have to have Asakura immediately attack Kyonko when she comes in, or have him use Data manipulation to hide the knife. The 1st option causes us to lose characterization, and the 2nd one doesn't properly build up to the unveiling of Asakura's powers.

Really, Asakura isn't the same without a good old combat knife.

What's with the argument over the combat knife and katana? Was it the manliness issue?

Some people saw a doujin artist depict a katana instead, thought it was cool.
