The NSFW-link ban is because 1) the forum and wiki are almost entirely open to public non-member viewing, and 2) according to some sort of surveys conducted by Eddie and whoever was assisting him, a good portion of our membership falls within the early-to-mid-teens age range.
Really? That young? I was under the impression that the average troper was a lot older.
I think that the main deciding factor for enhanced apparel would be the season, so whatever they pick would likely be summerwear.
Not necessarily. Their outfit could boast of the same "environmental conditioning" upgrade than Kyon's coat. Although, if their design is too warm for summer they could draw people's attention, rendering them too conspicuous to use in mundane situations.
Re: Wham Line
I think it was brought up mentioned a few pages ago. IMO, it doesn't count as a Wham Line
because there was enough Foreshadowing
in the previous chapters. Then again, that could be only me who got that impression. You know, I have this slight
tendency to overthink things
Do you think the Brigade is going to honor one of the noble traditions of the "after-school club"
and engage in an over-the-top game
a la "'life-or-death' squirt-gun battle" during their trip to Hinamizawa?*
Considering the capabilities of the Brigade's members, something like the above could become quite a sight to behold, especially to Kyon's extended family. Mikuru would be in a serious disadvantage as a player, though. Maybe if the play a "Protect the VIP"
scenario with her and someone else (Sasaki?) as the VIPs?
Now I think about it, a more serious form of these games could help Haruhi to become more efficient with the use of the limited version her powers. I mean, even if Haruhi has the benefit of being an Instant Expert
, her combat performance during the Resonance Cascade chapters was poor due to lack of experience and she can't acquire it with the Hyperbolic Time Chamber
because Yuki can't bring her with them to the daily trainings. For example, I'm picturing something like a laser tag mock battle between Haruhi and Kyon with their energy powers/weapons set at the lowest (let's call it "in'tar mode"
in the latter's case)... Maybe I should stop reading Stargate
's wikis for a while.
