Fridge Brilliance

  • When Kyon, Mikuru, and Koizumi went to a café after saving Nagato, Mikuru seemed rather distracted and then suggested going to a different café than normal in case Haruhi wanted to contact them, as it would be better if they were closer. Kyon and Adult!Mikuru were going to the normal café at that point, which is why the order was sent.
  • Why Yuki would only acknowledge Kyon's decision of save her life while she thanked him when he lowered her data manipulation load? Because by that time Yuki didn't give any value to her own life.
  • In "Open Battle Arc IV", Nonoko, who was down with fever several minutes ago, fights Slider Invaders like nothing. Why? Altair and Vega run on user's body heat, taking away her fever!

Fridge Horror

  • One of Yuki and Haruhi's theories on Kanae's sliding is that she overwrites that reality's Kanae's mind.
    • What makes it even worse is that comments in later chapters indicate the theory is true.
    • Confirmed by our new (presumably) enemy slider.
  • In Fanservice Chapter 2, Yuki admits to herself that merely being bored for almost 600 years isn't as bad as watching your loved ones die horribly over and over again.
  • In Higurashi, every new arc takes place in a new alternate reality; in most of those worlds, the protagonists were unable to stop the Great Hinamizawa Disaster that wiped out the village, including Kyon's mother [1], meaning Kyon was never born. In those worlds, Haruhi probably either unhappily accepted reality and lost her powers, never had them in the first place, or wiped out the world in angry boredom. And, in the Straightforward Exposition Arc Chapter 3, Kanae mentioned briefly that the worst worlds she'd been to were the ones where Kyon "wasn't anywhere in the world she could find."
    • It took this troper reading that twice to get the full force of it. In almost all of the "worst world" universes, Kyon's mother died. In almost all of the universes still around, Kyon is alive.
      • Not necessarily. First, the "worst worlds" might just be from her perspective. If he's the one thing that stays the same most of the time, not having him around will be disconcerting. Second, just because she can't find him doesn't mean he's not there; he could just be somewhere she doesn't know to look. Remember, this was before she learned to teleport to a specific person within the same world, so just not living in Nishinomiya might be enough. Still not an unlikely interpretation though.
  • Kyon's aunt Rena reacts to the news of Kyon being engaged to Tsuruya by the will of his mother by reflexively closing her right hand. She has to conscously restrain herself with her other hand.

Fridge Logic

  • The cover-up of the All Part of the Show bit was entirely unnecessary. The yakuza? Even Evil Has Standards. The Bavarian Fire Drill? Bystanders would get in the way, so quick thinking to disperse them. The telekinesis, tactical armor, and misc. inexplicables? "I'm as clueless as you are." The motive for the hit? Kyon's Big Damn Hero work a few chapters ago, which was public knowledge. Remember, kids: the best lie looks like the truth.


  1. for the maths to have checked out, she would have had to be alive at that point - and since Higurashi never really shows characters if they're not plot relevant...
