I most likely just didn't know enough Japanese to actually translate the names and so on. I did have a translation (apparently, as I found a translated version of the original one together with those two images), but I guess I was just plain lazy.

Also, I noticed that I've just copied the "ki" in Kyon and replaced the "hi" in Haruhi with it. Apparently, making it Haruki instead of Haruhiko was the easy way out as well. Didn't need to make the "ko" from scratch... Which honestly probably wouldn't have taken me any longer than what I actually did, but oh well.

Is it just me, or does Kyonko just seem like Haruhi without the genki and god factors?

She even looks a bit like Haruhi too...
It's more like they based her off of Haruhi than Kyon (not attitude-wise, obviously.)

The first time I saw Haruki and Kyonko, I thought "Haruhi and Kyon just basically swapped bodies". I suspect this was done intentionally to make photoshopping easier (i.e. a Haruhi/Kyon scene becomes a Haruki/Kyonko scene, simply by making the guy in the Kyon position Haruki instead and making the girl in Haruhi's position Kyonko instead).

As time goes on, I can notice little nuances where Haruki looks different from Kyon, and Haruhi looks different from Kyonko, but in the beginning... yeah, I felt the way that you did.

I don't quite get the whole concept of genderbending, but It's fun to look at pictures and stuff.

I know that. I even posted in the General Characters thread.Still, is a funny coincidence.

Well, Kyon at the end of the Endless Eight is similar to Haruki. Also, all the four have the same interests(aline and stuff), even if two of then have already gived up.

I also think their physical similaritys was on purpose.

If you want Fan Fics, look here(most are actualy rewrites, but there is fanfics too). For general information, there is a FAQ.

Really? That's odd, since the majority of people who first see Kyonko see Yuki. Especially considering the fact that she is also based off of Yuki for the most part.

Kyonko's body is a rip-of from Yuki's. But her hair and face is more similar to Haruhi. It might be related to many of the orignal images being screenshots of Haruhi photoshoped.

Poot Kyonko. Kaisos really is a bastard to her huh?

I am sure that if you point that errosr Kaisos will 'gladfully' fix then.

Just to make sure, did you read the Final version? The one with each chapter having only 2 parts and no edits. Or the old version? Most divideding the chapters in 4 or 5 parts and with 2 or 3 edits?

errr, can't remember, my memory is overloaded after reading so many different things with little sleep, probably the old version, so ignore that last comment, and thanks for pointing that out, that makes it less to read

It's a longer version of Yuki's, but brown and in a ponytail. Her face is pretty much the only part not derived from Yuki.

It can even be argued that this is taken from Yuki, only replace "Kaisos" with "Tanigawa." I mean, damn. Is there any story focusing on the poor girl that doesn't have a somewhat depressing tone to the ending?

There are two genderbender-scenes i must see:
1. Haruki stripping
2. female Taniguchi walking in on Yuuki and Kyon-ko (i for-for-forgot my bag...AUGH!)

... Isn't the second scene essentially Kyonko trying desperately to not be crushed by Yuuki? It's been a while since I've read it.

Disagree. Her hair is, apropriately enough, a longer version of Kyon's, with a ponytail. And this ponytail is very similar to Haruhi's one (in Disappearance).

Spoiler for Long Haired Ponytail Haruhi:

Disagree again. Yuki don't sufer a fraction of what Kaisos make Kyonko suffer.

Go to the fanfics archive post and look in the right chapter.

The second scene has, at last, 2 versions.

He's pretty much admitted that fact several times over the course of the thread. I believe it's usually something along the lines of "Kyonko is made to suffer."

Actually, that's what I want to move on to next if Jintor and Kaisos don't mind.

On that note, do you two and Dancho want me to just keep going with the Day 4 edits until I'm caught up to Kaisos, with Jintor reviewing my edits?
