    It's a shock that there's a freshman willing to take on Haruhi's Brigade Entrance Examination!

    But it's just as much a delight to finally have someone willing to fight against the tyranny of the straight man... Or so one would hope. With Yasumi Watahashi now on the scene, Kyon's straight man game is soaring to new heights, Asahina is going crazy, and Haruhi is acting more like a Brigade Chief than ever before! And what of the feline-ified Kuyoh at Nagato's house--when Kyon faces off with her, what could his fate possibly be!?
