Haruhi Now K-ON! Clone Anime

haruhi #20

Observers of Kyoto Animation’s otaku exploitation anime classics Haruhi and K-ON! can’t help but notice that the new Haruhi episodes show character designs which seem to have veered sharply towards those of K-ON!

Some examples of K-ON!-esque scenes from Haruhi (including suspected K-ON! cameos):

haruhi-vs-k-on

haruhi-on

Note the new repertoire of expressions Haruhi has picked up.

Examples of the original designs:

haruhi-s1

Mio’s height matched to that of Haruhi, and then her head matched to Haruhi’s:

mio-vs-haruhi

haruhi-shokku

A natural change in character designs over time is quite normal, but in this case matters seem almost exaggerated…
