You got me, but only because it's merely heavily implied that the girl Kyon took an interest in was the one that "appeared out of nowhere."

I've begun rereading Book 2 and I caught something I thought was odd last time but overlooked: The scene in Chapter 5 after they have the fight and he goes to the clubroom to make up:

Spoiler:

I'm assuming her hair was tied into a ponytail but the reaction seems strange, why would he (The author) throw in a detail like this?

To show us that she wears it in private, but is too embarrassed to show it to Kyon.

Kaisos is absolutely right. As by the end of book 1 we know Haruhi knows that Kyon is ponytail moe. She wears it in private in a way to confirm his affections in a way without actually confirming his affections . Kyon is just sneaking some odd bits of info for us to notice, after all in this series NOTHING is just filler.

I'd have to say that most of Kyon's descriptions of Mikuru have quite a bit of filler to them.

I don't know, alot of times it's just exaggeration, but if you look at it in face value, though Kyon finds Mikuru very attractive, all his praise seems very dare I say, fake. And at that point we wonder what are his true thoughts, does he really like her to such an extreme or does he find that he needs to support her?

and find myself agreeing with this.

I don't remember where but, at one point Kyon had to remind himself that he fancied Mikuru.

I've never got that impression. I think it had more to do with the fight they had over Haruhi abusing Mikuru. It really did upset.

I think it was more idle musing on her part (Would Kyon be more manageable if I wore a ponytail?).

edit FTW

I hope you did a mistake, ( and than you don't speak french). In french mangeable mean eatable. that give your sentence a strange meaning.

... what's so strange about Haruhi wanting to nibble on Kyon?

Embrace the Tosh like you'd embrace your mother . . . unless you're into wincest. The Tosh doesn't do guys*.

* - Am I correct in assuming that you are, in fact, a man? If not, then I apologize. I automatically assume that all members on anime forums are adolescent, sex-starved males . . . since they usually are.

Anyway . . . back to the Haruhi. How the hell did we land so far off tangent?

Talking about Haruhi's specific motivation regarding the pony tail in the 2nd novel.

I thought it was more situational, than something she made a habit of doing.

I have just read " Charmed at first Sight" and it was a very interesting story...well towards the end that it.

Spoiler for ending:


Overall it was a good story, just a bit confusing at the end.

I'm more curious why Haruhi threw the Curry bun away when Kyon enters the room.

She needed both hands to untie the knot holding her ponytail up.
