The amount of people that have Horo in their Avatar and Sig right now is truly something to behold. I don't think even at the peak of her popularity that Haruhi even had this much of a pull. Of the major members it seems like more have a Horo image somewhere in their profile then don't.

I'd have probably swapped to a Horo avatar... but I took so much flak the last time I veered away from sweet gothy Tomoko I decided to just go with a .sig this time.

I wonder how many episodes we'll be getting to see new aspects of Horo's personality -- so far its 3 for 3.

I'm sure she'll reveal more and more as she gets closer to Lawrence

Personally I want to see her tease Lawrence more

For those wondering about the spelling of Horo's name in English the last issue of Newtype USA had a translated version of this pic:



and the spelling they used was "Horo."

and they called the show "The Wolf and The Spice."

You can probably attribute that to lack of other shows that are both really good and make for great avatar material. Spring 2006 was a great season for anime.

Then again, I'm kind of surprised at the lack of Bamboo Blade avatars... Kirino's expressions are great, and Sayako, Tamaki, Miya Miya, Reimi, and Ando have expressions and gestures that would make for good avatars too. (Horo, Kirino, and Sayako are competing for my favorite character out of the shows that I'm currently following)

I wonder if Horo could become the prototype of a new type of female characters which are free and absolutely even to their male counterparts without being perfect or unreal (set aside the fact that she is a god, because she behaves very humanly). This is something anime is normally missing, still recently I have seen a tendency towards such characters. However Horo is the first real culmination of those character traits I have seen so far.

I think its still an anomaly ... as long as many anime are drawn from average ero-games or average manga, its still going to be hit or miss. The recent move towards drawing material from light novels (which by the nature of the medium tend to have more complex character development and design) is a very good move though. As the anime target audience ages.... unless they're completely dysfunctional, they'll want more complex character drama as they age.

Horo was really cute and moe, she is so many personality and sometime very naughty.

She is the charm of every man I guess.
She is dominating and yet, obedient.
She is wise and yet naive.
Playful and yet cunning.
She is bravado but not shy in showing her tears.
And most of all I guess most of you will not understand but the usage of Oiran kotoba gives her the ultimate feminine touch.

I have a feeling that we'll be seeing some Horo + Firefox images. I hope that feeling comes true, if it hasn't already. I want a wallpaper of that.

There's already quite a few of those in the images threads.

I think it's her atypical personnality. Recently we've seen a few girls that are unlike the typical anime girls. Rather than being the classic shy, hesitant and too nice girls, Horo is daring, cunning and teasing. Haruhi also had a similar charm.

And I will agree it's very odd how quickly Horo became so popular.

Yeah, but Haruhi has a sadistic tendency I can not stand.
I think Horo is better balanced with showing both her strong and her weak side.

Haruhi is so misunderstood.

Horo is, on other hand, a flirt, albeit a very classy flirt. Many guys like that. Hence her popularity.

I'd dispute that Horo is a simple tsundere. That ignores too many other of her personality attributes. I can call my wife tsundere ... but its really a terribly oversimplifying description.
