Miyuki gave me the impression of being a workaholic. I'm guessing she is the kind of person who simply can't completely disconnect herself from work. Furthermore, she is in charge of an ongoing investigation. New and sudden developments are the par of the course in police work, which make me think Miyuki is perhaps keeping her phone close by in case she has to run back to Nishinomiya.
About kbdh!Rika, I think she never told anyone involved about the "Groundhog Day" Loop
. We know for a fact that the Higurashi cast don't know about Hanyuu or, at most, remember her as a Rika's relative who came to Hinamizawa in 1983. Similarly, Akasaka Mamoru most likely retained her martial knowledge via Ripple Proof Memory
but that's pretty much it. I wonder if he still keeps himself in shape in his fifties. A sparring match between him and Kyon would be quite a sight to behold, don't you think?
I see here a possible way for Ryouko needing to get her human-size form.
Kuyou would be either worse than Yuki or an victim of psychological abuse with heavy mental scars ans apparently dependency to Kyon (if Miyuki can see her). And if we add a possible Lady Killer
reputation of Kyon's... oops?
I'm not sure if I'm reading this right, but are you saying that Miyuki could arrive to the conclusion that Kyon is collecting Broken Birds
to do his bidding by the means of becoming
their Living Emotional Crutch
? O_O *
OK, that's one
way to deconstruct
the Harem Genre
. *shakes head*
BTW, I think Kuyou is keeping her "occlusion field"
deactivated for the duration of the visit to Hinamizawa. For example at the end of Re-2, Yuki requested sharing a room with her in Mion's presence, implying that the latter can see Kuyou.
I have to severely doubt that Miyuki would see anything that would constitute Kyon as a Lady Killer
Don't forget that noticing things like that is part of Miyuki's job. Also, it has been noted in-story that Mikuru and Kanae's feelings for Kyon are pretty easy to read (if your nickname is not Kyon
). Even Haruhi and Sasaki are pretty obvious about it in their own way.
IINM, the whole set of events in Re-2 happened on "Fri Jun 17". I personally never noticed a date change and Kyon mentioned that they technically only travelled through space. Another hint of this are Mion's words to Sasaki about missing classes on Saturday.
P.P.S. BTW, some time ago I created two easy-to-remember URL for the timeline: tiny.cc/kbdh-timeline
Re. The Dreaded
I'm not sure if Kyon qualifies as a Terror Hero
because he doesn't seem to intentionally resort
to scare tactics as a general approach to deal with his enemies. IOW, it's not his intention to be feared by the Sumiyoshi-rengo, just the result. Then again, as Mad Kitsu pointed out, Kyon can be pretty damn scary when provoked enough. /hesitant
Hi there! IINM, it's the first time I see you here.
What unintended cover? The SOS-dan has seen Miyuki before, and suspects that she's involved in the investigation. Though I suppose they don't know how interested she is in the SOS-dan in particular.
Miyuki has no reason to think that someone linked to the Kowa-Keigo knows about her, so she is likely to seize the opportunity and play the role of a family friend to get some firsthand information. In fact, even Kyon, the only one who has met her in person during his solo mission in CBS-1, probably won't remember her (after all, a LOT of things have happened since May 26th). Perhaps the picture of Miyuki that Kyon took at the time will prove to be relevant
Now that I think about it, I wonder if Miyuki and Kyon knows each other in their Back Story
. IINM, Miyuki is sixteen years older than Kyon. Who knows, maybe she had to babysit him at some point or something
. Alternatively, maybe Miyuki and Akane knows each other. If My Calculations Are Correct
, they have more or less the same age.
Say, how common is the use of "slider" to denote people who travel from/between alternate universes? I know it originates from a show named Sliders, but as far as I can tell nobody outside the Haruhi Suzumiya fandom uses it.
In fact, the correct term (as used by the novels) is "異世界人" (isekaijin, lit. parallel world's person). I suppose the first person who translated the novels used the word "slider" (probably from the series of the same name
) and the term simply caught on.
Do you think Skynet
would get a good phone reception in Hinamizawa?
For some reason, I got the impression that it could have an amazing coverage if Achakura is capable to optimize the connection with public networks (or simply by breaking into the JSAT network or something like that).
I wonder if Achakura could become the best Playful Hacker
/Voice with an Internet Connection
to the limitations imposed on her. I mean, without access to data manipulation
Achakura can't do much more than administrate Kyon's tools, but when said equipment includes a terminal with some undefined connection to Internet, some interesting possibilities arise. I'm guessing that her nature as a data entity could make many computational problems a non-issue to her (like the ones typically associated to cryptanalysis), or at least it would grant her with non-obvious means to approach them.
