Well, if the Battle Waitress costume fit her properly and wasn't a size or two smaller...

Haruhi and her 'old man' instincts...

Well, they do say different strokes for different folks. I just think the bunny outfit works better for someone more...alluring, rather than just cute. I said the maid costume suits her because of her sweet and caring personality.

Oh, and I agree that the cultural festival outfit looked great on Mikuru, too. Someone pointed that out earlier.

The main reason why I find Mikuru the least attractive alluded me for a while. I knew it wasn't because of her personality. I loved Shinobu from Love Hina, and her personality was very similar. After some thought, I finally figured out why I don't like her that much.

Three reasons. Her voice is too high pitched, her boobs are too big, and her hairs is too long or not long enough. I know it makes me a shallow bas%$#@, but it's the truth.

Her voice was already discussed, so I'll talk about the boobs. Strangely, I'm one of those people who doesn't like big boobs. I don't think big boobs go well with her personality, either. I'd hate to think that Haruhi's judgement was off when she picked Mikuru as her mascot, but I never thought she was anything special, and her boobs look weird on her small frame.

As for her hair, I just thinks it's boring. I've already mentioned that I love shoulder length hair (Like Haruhi's *drool*) and Tsuruya's hair is so long it adds to her personality. I even like Yuki's hair more than Mikuru's as it's so short it adds personality.

Anyway, I was curious as to why other might love her or not like her all that much. Do any of you guys agree with me?
Blasphemy! Though anime breasts, like everything in else in anime, tend to defy physics and tend towards being too big (or not at all). Which can be annoying.

Mikuru's probably my least favorite character just because I'm not really into moe characters. I prefer the cooler and calm characters (male and female) but that's just because excessive whining just grates on me.

Big Mikuru is another story...

...I have no problem with it being a few sizes to small.

I just don't really fancy the design.

I think the bunny suit works good for both. Of course I do have a preference for those kinds of outfits.

I guess the whole "Meido serving you" aspect just doesn't appeal to me.

Can we talk about episode 14? that was some major stuff going on there that should really make us question Mikuru's motivations. Koizumi says mikuru is flirting with kyon so kyon will do what her organisation desires.

and of course theirs Mikuru's not so private chat with kyon which suggests she less fond of Koizumi than she lets on.

The thing is, Koizumi admitted he was just making that up. While his explanation would make sense, I'm pretty sure there's significant evidence, even within the material presented in the anime, that proves she's exactly how she seems.

Whilst I'm not sure thats exactly the truth (I dont think Mikuru is that good of an actress) I think other people are using her in a way to create that situtation.

Koizumi only ever calls his statments a joke when he realises that he's pushed Kyon to his limit, its his way of calming kyon down even if he has said what he was thinking.

The same thing happened in endless 8, he was considering dating haruhi as an option and was testing the water, if Kyon reacted badly (which he did) then dating Haruhi wouldnt work it would cause more damage than good because of the way Kyon would react.

Koizumi either thinks what he described is happening, he knows Mikuru isnt the one in charge or he wants Kyon to think it.

The truth is Kyon cant trust any of the people he's surrounded by completely because their all hiding things, Mikuru isnt just a moe character there is more to her.

So you're saying he also believes the "clowns at the edge of an abyss" thing from Melancholy? He did the same thing there, you know.

What Koizumi saysmake sense, actually. Even if Mikuru is not acting, is possible that her bosses have choice her to taht purpose. Taht would explain why someone so unskiled is doing in a important mission the past.

Just two things here.

In terms of Koizumi testing Kyon, I think it's pretty obvious that some of the things he says as a "Joke" are really what he thinks or believes. It adds greatly to his character because you can never tell if he is being serious or not.

And on to point two.

I think by now Koizumi knows him and Haruhi will never happen as long as Kyon is around which i think is a BAD thing.

I actually kind of relate to Koizumi here. If I want to say something controversial, but that I feel is important, to somebody, I'll sometimes say it in a half-way joking tone. This enables me an out of "Well... I was only joking", in case the controversial statement that I make offends the person.

So, I actually tip my hat to suave Itsuki here; well played, sir!


As for your spoileriffic speculations... they could be right.

Yea it's sort of a "Incase of looking like an idiot or freak press now" button :P. I can relate to that myself.

Why are we talking about shipping pairs that aren't even related to Mikuru?

Don't worry. I really can't see it ending that way. Of all the possible pairings, that one has the least amount of canon content to back it up. Even Nagato/Mikuru has Nagato's obvious delight in biting at her neck, he he!

Edit: There you go, Kogetsu. Now here's a Mikuru pairing we can talk about if you like... Ha ha!

Because Mikuru was designed to be delicious.

It is unclear however if she was sent back to appeal to Kyon, or to appeal to Haruhi...since it was Haruhi who kidnapped Mikuru to start the chain of events, and it is Haruhi who seems to be having the most fun playing with Mikuru's body.

I really really really hope so.

I wouldn't mind anything but that pairing. Hell

Neither Nagato nor Mikuru can help the fact that the latter is tragically delicious.

I guarantee that Kyon would be right there with Haruhi if he thought he could get away with it.

It could be,

I doubt they would send someone THAT perfect (In Kyon's mind) back just by chance.

I think Haruhi likes playing with Mikuru to sabotage her image in front of Kyon and get attention. Not because she actually sexually likes it.

... This argument kinda fails due to the fact that the worst instance of it happens before Haruhi realizes Kyon was focusing his attention on Mikuru.
