Yes, Kyon is awesome, to me, its because the story would never have existed in any way without him. He himself is the many reasons why this story exists.

Kyon is also special because he is more than just a male lead, or a narrator. The story doesn't revolve around him, but written in a perspective, his perspective, which makes the story his.

The main character of the show is Haruhi, but Tanigawa Nagaru used a brilliant 1st person perspective of Kyon to tell her story. This makes the story theirs, a story of two people from one perspective.

The novels/show connects with the readers/audience, because it is shown in this perspective, a single person's perspective. All humans are individuals and we all see the world in our single perspectives. Most other stories are told by 3rd person and we see from multiple perspectives, it doesn't connect with the audience as strongly as a 1st person's perspective.

EDIT: There are also many other reasons why this story wouldn't have existed without Kyon, but they would be heavy spoilers lol

sry if its been said but why is Itsuki Koizumi in italics? i voted for him, i feel like we didn't get to know him enough and i really like his admirable character. actually hes the one who got me intrested in this anime. very good looking characters....
Kyon is a given, yuki grew on me, and mikuru annoys me to no ends.

It's probably because you voted for Itsuki. All of the characters I've voted for turned out in italics too. Nice to see that Itsuki actually got someone into the show, most people want to lynch the guy

My favorite from the start is Nagato Yuki. Learning more about her character in the middle to later episodes only made me enjoy her episode 1 debut that much more ! But of course, just about all the characters in this series won me over, so I couldn't help but vote in a few more favorites.

I voted for Nagato Yuki because I like her mysteriousness...and would love to learn more about her. Koizumi Itsuki because he has the looks . Voted Kyon for being such a dramatic narrator.
...And of course, Haruhi for being so unique.

Of course and now that I read that I'm very depressed about myself

BTW You are not the one who is rooting for Primula in the anime saimoe thread after your harsh criticism about loli character?

You sure are a great example of rightness and coherence...

I was thinking lolicons when I said that, and I think that I was also frustrated about another character losing, especially to an overrated meh character like Kyon's sister. (don't remember who, though)

I like Primula, and this seems to be more of a popularity contest than a moe contest, so I voted for her.

Things Kunikida did that Imouto did not:
1. Was born male.
2. Made Taniguchi look even dumber than he does on his own.
3. Insinuated that Kyon was interested in Haruhi.

Things Imouto did that Kunikida did not:
1. Go on the island trip and then FAIL to figure out that it was all a ploy.
2. FAIL to be Kunikida.
3. FAIL to be Taniguchi's friend.
4. FAIL to cut Kyon out of a conversation with Tsuruya.
5. FAIL to not wear hair ornaments.

As this completely unbiased list of well-weighted, comparable achievements demonstrates, Kunikida is a much more important and successful character than Imouto.

He's right though it's mostly made up of common sense but that post was made buy a yuki and so it's *cough*biased*cough. I'm not sticking up for anyone though I am a asakura-sama fan.

Well, I was trying point out that there were reasons of screentime and SOS-dan event participation for preferring Imouto over Asakura, and to be funny at the same time. Obviously, I FAILED at both, and managed to look like a flame to boot. Sorry about that, chief.

And yeah, I'm biased. I voted for Kyon and Yuki only. So Miss AA+ is not so high on my list
