I still don't get the Haruhi Clone
Sora has none of the personality traits. She's at most a character with a similar design physically (and not even the same since she's younger).
was a pretty clear Haruhi Clone
what with the attitude, design, and setting (brigade chief).
I'm trying to think of other possible "Haruhi Clones
". Maybe Hitagi from Bakemonogatari
? And that's a huge stretch. I wouldn't call her a Haruhi Clone
, but it's the closest I could think of other than Yuri.
Truthfully Haruhi is a pretty complex character, she's hard to clone. She's got that Manic Pixie Dream Girl
side, and then there's a little bit of Broken Bird
mixed in, plus being a bit of a Jerkass
(she's not really Tsundere
I'm not saying that there won't be clones, considering Haruhi's impact on anime we should expect attempts to clone her... but a clone is more than a similar character design. I mean, Nagi doesn't look that much like Shana, yet we think of Nagi as a Shana Clone
. Yuki isn't really that close to Rei, but we'd include her as a Rei Clone
