It's like I've just eaten the greatest cake ever made. So now that my tastebuds are fried from all the yumminess, everything tastes blande no matter what it is. After a while, the numbness will go away, I suspect, and we'll be able to enjoy our favorite foods again
But in the meantime, Haruhi has completely spoiled us

I'll just keep storing them for later.
Strangely enough I feel that way too, that feeling is probablt only limited to haruhiists and those who have REALLY enjoyed the show.
I just find that no other characters are able to engage me as much (except for Ginko) as the characters in this show =/ Maybe it's time for an anime break...

You know, I've always been saying that the minds of all Haruhists are united by Haruhi-sama.

Those who are true Haruhists think exactly the same.

Its either in our genes, we are born to become Haruhists or Haruhi-sama selected us like the espers, we suddenly come to realise the same picture.

Hmm...
So where do the Kyonists fit in there?

Hmm, I'm not a Haruhist (Proud Kyonist), but I can't seem to get into any more good anime's (not even Detective Conan is entertaining as much any more *gasp*).

Maybe it's cause I can't find a male lead as cool or witty as Kyon.

Kyonism, Yukism, are branches of Haruhiism and your beliefs do contain traces of Haruhiism.

But Haruhi-sama owns all who worship anything in her universe, you guys are still Haruhiists.

Nah, we all know who's really in charge.

Kyon is the god, Haruhi-sama is just a demi-god.

Actually I think I have to rephrase it this way:

Haruhi-sama owns everything in the SOS-dan, worshipping her members = worshipping her.

Originally Haruhiism wasn't founded to worship Haruhi-sama because she's the one in charge, not because she's god, she's not really a god too. In the show she's not really a god, yes, but we worship her as a god.

You know, I think there is a Monty Python sketch buried in there somewhere...

224 votes and pretty much everyone remains the same. This is by far the most 'static' poll I have ever seen.

I knew Yuki would be number 1, but I kept wishing Haruhi-sama would be instead lol

The poll has some strange results though, Tsuruya is the most obvious one.

Shamisen appeared for less than 3 minutes in episode 1, but has more than combined votes of Taniguchi, Kunikida and Emiri. I thought Emiri would get a little more votes, because she's actually really cute lol. When she comes to my mind, I always remember this line from her as well: "Watash' shinpai...", "I'm worried". She sounded really cute saying that for some reason.

I also expected more votes for Imouto and the ENOZ girls.

Personally, I think the ENOZ girls should get their own series. Maybe a relatively realistic comedy/drama about an all female rock band in Japan. Not an idol series, mind you, but a series about a serious band that doesn't even consider the idol route. Have them graduate and move to Osaka instead of Tokyo. Haruhi could make the occasional guest appearance and insist, despite the fact that she's never around, that she is their manager. (Of course, their real manager resents this.)

I could go on and on.

I had to impose a lot of self-discipline in my votes... ENOZ simply didn't have enough screen time (one ep and one background shot in other ep). Otherwise, I'd just have to vote for all the choices and then write-in a few.

... This idea is made of much awesome. Especially the part in bold.
Too bad it'll never happen

On second viewing, I'd have to hand it to Tanaguchi for the humor he brings to the show by being the idiot. Ah well, too late to put in a vote for him

this poll is kinda unfair cause all the charas are soo lovable
i can vote for them all but i think its best to limit to my top 5...
1)kyon ~ no contest...hes smart, sarcastic and a sexy bastard
2)mikuru ~ i love her to bits...
3)yuki ~ the silent type with all the merits ^^
4)itsuki ~ IMO he wants to be gay with kyon...duno why but i find it funny when hes always told by kyon to get out of his face XD
5)tsuruya ~ she didnt get enough screen time >.< thats why this vote is for her to have her own series

It's gonna be Kyon--the TRUTH--all the way. Without his cynical sarcastic wit, the appreciation of Haruhi herself would have declined. He's the most well-rounded and developed character, which makes sense; the series comes mostly from his perspective. Oh, man, I remember watching episode one without having looked up any info on it. It was really bizarre, but I knew as soon as the narration started it was an amateur movie, and Kyon's narration helped me get through it.

He's brilliant, I tell you. I haven't enjoyed a male lead in anime so much since Jinto from the Seikai series, and that's a tough act to follow.

All the characters in this series are quite likeable, but the magic wouldn't be there if Kyon weren't there every step of the way. He's the Minnesota Miracle Man, you know.
