Close choice between Mikuru and Haruhi for me.
So the question is what do I prefer, "cute" or "crazy"?

Of course its gotta be "crazy",
gogo Haruhi ^^

Gotta love that cat, if only he had more airtime...

Nagato, of course. She's not my favorite character of the series, she's my favorite character of all time. She should be the leader of the poll.

We should just be glad that the Great Goddess Nagato Yuki is above all but the title character and main character. Though it will only take a few more votes to surpass Kyon...

Yuki might was well BE the main character, considering the unfair amount of focus she gets in the later books.

Who was this series about again?

It is about Kyon, he just doesn't know it yet. He's always in focus.

Haruhi is just the center of their collective difficulties.

OH NO YUKI RECREATED THE UNIVERSE

OH NO SOME GUY IS HITTING ON YUKI

OH NO YUKI IS SICK QUICK DO SOMETHING

OH NO YUKI WOULD BE HOT IN A MAID OUTFIT

OH NO YUKI'S CLUB IS GOING TO BE DISBANDED

OH NO YUKI MADE A JOKE HAHA

OH NO YUKI IS SICK AGAIN THAT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYTHING


This is all I really remember of the stories set post-Disappearance, and has contributed to my dislike of the character and my branding of her as a Mary Sue.

Really wish Tanigawa would just have her sacrifice herself epically somehow and focus the story back on Kyon and Haruhi...

With Vols. 7, 8, and 9, it looks like Tanigawa is trying to create clear antagonists who aren't Haruhi... which actually isn't bad at all, since Haruhi is nowhere near as unconsciously malevolent as she used to be, and a story needs conflict to tell itself...

I sort of don't get those reactions to the stories. (still haven't read 8 or 9 enough)

OH NO YUKI RECREATED THE UNIVERSE

Okay major plot point. Kyon's reaction "I want to be with Haruhi('s wackiness)"

OH NO SOME GUY IS HITTING ON YUKI

Reaction "Defend" but Kyon would do the same for Mikuru (and maybe Haruhi).

OH NO YUKI IS SICK QUICK DO SOMETHING

You TVTropes loving-ness would likely point to this as the Worf effect. "Something beat up Yuki...its tough." Que Itsuki to solve riddle?

OH NO YUKI WOULD BE HOT IN A MAID OUTFIT

Where did this come from?

OH NO YUKI'S CLUB IS GOING TO BE DISBANDED

Since the SOS-dan is more or less listed as the Literature Club, that's more Haruhi's problem.

OH NO YUKI MADE A JOKE HAHA

Character Development?

OH NO YUKI IS SICK AGAIN THAT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYTHING

Worf Effect. Cause for Haruhi to do something?

I was using hyperbole in any case. My point is that Yuki simply has an unfair amount of time devoted to her compared to Mikuru (Two stories) or Itsuki (...half a story?)

Even stories not obviously Yuki stories are often tied directly to her in some way (Mysterique Sign, Day of Sagittarius, Endless Eight)... she's Tanigawa's favorite character, but even he said that the plot would quickly get into a rut if he focused too much on her, and guess what he did anyway?

I feel those examples are less of the Worf Effect and more of a somewhat shoddily-done attempt to give Haruhi a Morality Pet... but this ends up making Yuki look more perfect than ever. At least it achieved its intended effect and made Haruhi less of a sociopath...

I have a friend, who's only seen the anime and not read the books, who seems convinced that Haruhi should be put down like some rabid animal, and that Kyon and Yuki should go riding off into the sunset together... and I feel this is the general opinion of many Yuki fanboys, who see her as this flawless porcelain doll, which I also feel the story itself supports entirely too much...

*waits for Yuki fanboys to lynch him*

Finally, I'd love to see someone try to hit on Haruhi and see Kyon's reaction then, but of course we'd have to get new stories before that happens. >_>

If the Haruhi-chan episodes are any indication, you have one episode of the SOS-dan doing activites with Yuki usually contributing something (effective or not). Then you have anyother episode which is based in Yuki's apartment. Though honestly most of these are starting to focus more on Ryoko than Yuki. Yet Yuki is in every episode (with speaking lines) it seems.

It could just be she's the easiest to write for.

Yeah. I wasn't quite happy with the level of attention that seems to get shifted away from Haruhi in the later books. My fear for the new season is that they've already used up most of the Haruhi centric plot lines, so we'll end up having the focus everywhere else.

Haruhi is actually similar to Godzilla.

While Godzilla is his series own main character, there's always a human in each movie that is the main character. Godzilla is both villian and hero of his stories at the same time, Godzilla destroys both cities and monsters. And sometimes Godzilla needs some kind of help or persuasion to defeat the monsters and leave the cities alone.

Replace the above paragraph with Haruhi = Godzilla, Kyon = human, cities = world.

Then there's Mothra, she could be Yuki.

I'm pretty sure they never got Godzilla to not destroy Tokyo by having some guy liplock him.
