Suminoe but Sunimoe, but whatever. :P

B Gata's Yamada could probably be included in that interview, too. Or the girls from Seitokai Yakuindomo.

They could, but Fate would still be eliminated. A win would put Fate at 32-0-17 (96 points), while a tie would give Rin and Hitagi one point each, putting them at 97 (32-1-16).

Ok, this is constructive criticism, please don't take this the wrong way. I criticize because I care.

Navy text red outline. Please no, I get that it's kind of supposed to follow Haruhi's uniform color scheme, but it makes it really annoying to read and even look at. It clashes also with the color of the "Saimoe Illustrated" text. The text itself also needs to be worked on. Chasing the Triple Crown: Mio Akiyama chases rarified... what? Typo on the first line (Last year, Aisaka taiga etc etc), you're missing a space. It's also a horrible place to put flavortext.

The design is moderately creative but doesn't really work because the pieces don't come together. Try a more legible font, and I advise against centering the intro to the title when the title itself is read one word at a time downwards. The characters themselves are not sharp enough, pick higher resolution source material or material that looks more "canon". The entire cover looks a little blurry. You also have incomplete arcs in the background and a mistake near the top of the cover (the border on the upper part of "Saimoe".

Biggest fault here is still the choice of colors. Try to work with colors that match well together and use consistent colors in a design. Also, try a non-serifed font for the main title. The rounded rectangle border corners are also a little tacky. Shadow effects and layer effects really do the trick to make designs look more professional like magazine covers. They add a subtle effect and make text seem really legible (instead of having to rely on horrible color selections in font).

That last cover was horrible. I had about 20 minutes to knock it out, cause I had to do wholesome things.

This one is (marginally) better.
