Doesn't have to be equal. :P

Could be a darker or lighter grey.

Also emotional > physical. USUALLY. (unless they're shallow)

I was just saying that when I made the statement that sexuality ISN'T black, white or "grey." The "grey" I was refering to was an equal measure of white and black. My whole point was that there could be different mixture of black and white, just like how people can have sexual preferences that tend to lean one way or the other without being completely "Straight," "Gay," or "Bi."

Most people are shallow, in my experience, even if they say they're not.

Haruhi, however, is not. Even if Kyon is good-looking.

Which he isn't. He's average. Average people aren't attractive.

Kyon only thinks he's average.

Don't forget, this is the guy who has girls falling all over him; the most emotionless character in the series to date told him he had "pretty____eyes".

Yeah, he's pretty good-looking. Not as good-looking as Koizumi, but...

Oh really?

Haruhi: Shares quite a few common interests with him. He vaguely reminds her of the guy she met three/four years ago.
Nagato: Touched by his actions.
Mikuru: While he's pretty bad at it, he does try to stop Haruhi from doing anything particularly bad to her.
His sister: ... I'm not going to get into this one...
Tsuruya: Is there any real proof that she's interested in him?
Asakura: Wanted to kill him, no real romantic aspects.
Kimidori: Nothing.
Mori: Not interested.
Spoiler for future stuff:


Yep... really has girls falling all over him.

Anyway... of the above, only one that has actually displayed interest in him due to his appearance.

Tsuruya flirts with him quite a bit in Volume 7 but he never takes it seriously, and I don't think we're supposed to either.

Good points.

Also, "average looking" is attractive enough for your, well, "average" person. Once there's romantic attraction there, a moderate degree of physical attraction is usually enough to satisfy people. It's also been my experience that most people aren't very picky.


As for Haruhi's sexuality... my own view is that she's straight, but is so obsessed over aliens, espers, and time travelers that she'd literally go lesbian for one or more of the above. I think that her treatment of Mikuru can be summed up over simple expressions of delight that she has such a great moe mascot for her SOS Brigade; kind of like a young kid gushing over his or her new literal toy.

Haruhi really doesn't strike me as the one-night stand sort of person. Her approach to others suggests to me that she's either really into you (to the point she wants you to be part of her regular entourage), or she has no investment/particular interest in you at all (romantic, sexual, or otherwise).

You do have a point. However... at least the girls in the SOS Brigade all have a thing for him, and that's more than enough to say that he has girls falling all over him, though, you're correct, it's not due to attractiveness.

(He is in quite good shape, though. I kind of wonder why he is, given that's he's never shown to be doing any kind of exercise.)

Spoiler for future stuff:


That's about it though.

Simply having to keep up with Haruhi probably helps. Haruhi's typically like a tornado of activity, and when you consider that she is very athletic and doesn't tire easily...

Part of the reason why I'd love to be friends with Haruhi is because it would be good for my diet.

His build is a result of being the SOS Brigade's pack mule.

That and he's proven to be able to dogde things that should kill just about anyone else. Ryoko's blade, fireworks to the face, and Haruhi's ego.

He still needs a bit of work with that last one.
