I'm not sure I can answer this without insulting someone...

He's mature? He thinks of women as people and he just cannot believe she's treating Mikuru that way and he feels sorry for her? He doesn't think assaulting her is a good idea? He's starting to wonder if Suzumiya needs medication?

Lemme see.... example: I was just out of college, one of my fellow engineers (who also happened to be pretty) had a serious clothing malfunction while we were working on some equipment. Lessee, did I say, "omigod, boobage!!!!" .... no .... I helped her recover - she thanked me - and I did not go blabbing about it. For some strange reason ... she trusted me after that.

My respect for Kyon went up a 1000% in that scene when he extricated Mikuru from Haruhi's clutches and then made sure Mikuru knew she had nothing to fear from him.

Contrary to popular belief, not all guys are retarded or perverted morons.

I, for one, find it refreshing to have a strong, "normal" lead in an anime. Or, at the least, a character that I can relate to immensely.

Which is cool, as there doesn't seem to be too many normal male leads in animations of this nature.

It wasn't added, most likely, because the Anime is trying to stick to the novels more.

It's generally better to follow the source material.

If Kyon was meant to blush, he would have. Kyoto Animation wouldn't miss something like that.

Manga is NOT canon. The novel is.

It's likely out of character for Kyon to blush at this stage, since he is meant to be the the "calm one".

I agree. Some people blush. Kyon isn't one of them.

You know, I've just been thinking all the way back to my high school days (all of 11+ years ago ). Why oh why were my school years not like this? Seriously, my school life would have been so much more fun and enjoyable with a Haruhi-esque person around the place. But alas, 'twas not to be

Oh well

Episode #2 deserves a perfect 10 for the end sequence alone. I love the full dance sequence.

The episode itself was really good too. Very well directed, paced, and well executed production.

As far as endings go, this is my favourite of ANY series I've watched. The music is catchy and fun, the dance sequences are so cute it's unreal (Mikuru's finger waggling is adorable ), it just rocks on every level possible. Normally I'm not a fan of endings, it's always the OP that gets my interest. Not so here though

She is nuts. I thought she was just very weird, but Haruhi is nuts beyond comprehension. I actually feel sorry for Kyon. Not to mention poor Mikuru.

Yeah, she's crazy, but that's a large part of the attraction

Do you guys notice that episode two by a.f.k has high frequency pitch at 15,734 Hz. I haven't compare it to 704x396 [Q-R] RAW version. However the 1280x720 version doesn't have that pitch.

I loved this. I gave it a 10 because I can't give it an 11.

The OP and ED are both great, but actually unlike most people I prefer the OP over the ED.

And the characters...Kyon is an excellent male lead, about time we had another one! He seems to love talking, too. Haruhi is totally nuts, but she's awesome, and quite cute too. And poor Mikuru, I felt sorry for her , it looks like that overbearing Haruhi won't stop taking advantage of her for a long while.

I know it's early to say so but I believe this will be the show of the season for me.

All the discussions of a RAW with higher than 702x396 resolutions has me frantically searching the internet... Those screen caps looked... godly ^_^
