Nah, you're just observant (at least about the second part). But I'm curious about what you meant with Mikuru. What do you see right about this picture (where papers are covering pretty much all of her chest) that was done wrong in other pictures?

You see, in the novels Mikuru is described as having large breasts. In the cover for volume two, you can see it perfectly. However, when you look at the later illustrations as Itou's art style evolves, you start to notice a change in the whole art. In one of the illustrations, the breasts are kind of sagging to the sides and significantly smaller.

Really, the only reason is probably because of the change in art style, or should i say evolution of Itou's art style. However, I am a very picky person when it comes to details, and this change just didn't sit well with me. When I compare the image version from volume 9 to this new one, even though her breasts are covered, I can kind of get an idea of what it looks like without the papers in front of her.

I know I said I'm just a pervert, but really it was just that I am a person who likes it when anatomy stays consistent in illustrations, unless the art was horrible. Which wasn't a all btw, I am just picky

And no I didn't dislike ti because I prefer large breasts, those aren't my preference anyways

Well Mikuru's large breasts are very much part of her otaku dream girl come alive (and exaggerated) persona, so some analysis is understandable and nessasary.

Well, unfortunately it's not a new image it was a color illustration from volume 9 released back in 2007. I'm not sure any of the illustrations in these new volumes play up Mikuru Oppai.

Spoiler for From last year:


Definitely not as much as Haruhi made it up to be...but honestly? She's still cute as a button, and I consider this one of the best depictions Noizi has done of Mikuru. But on the times where Itou has given Mikuru a bit more...ooomph? I'm not sure I liked it 100%.

Spoiler for Noizi Mikuru oppai:


It just feels there's a LITTLE bit to much considering how big Mikuru's body is here...Big is nice, but at a certain point it starts to get unmanageable. Perhaps she could transfer a bit back to Tsuruya (though strangely, I'm finding myself being influenced by not requiring massive oppai to find Tsuruya AMAZINGLY attractive here! Though it might be just because she's in a bikini. God, why doesn't Tsuruya get more fanservicey illustrations?)


As far as Mikuru being well endowed is concerned, I generally have liked the anime illustrations better at this portrayal.

Spoiler for Mikuru CD cover:


Yes. Mikuru here is VERY nice.

I admit I prefer depictions where Mikuru isn't "fall on your face from the top-heaviness" massive:

Spoiler for images:

But that wouldn't be CANON, would it now? =P

If I had to choose from the "accurate" depictions, I'd go with Mikuru in the waitress outfit (anime style, not novel style). The forced contrast from her corset thingy just makes it work.

I agree. Mikuru should be "enough bigger than Haruhi to be noticeable" but not "OMG huge".

It would be weird if in Mikuru's time the majority of desirable women were flat chested, and thus Mikuru(BIG) is considered unattractive due to her large breasts. Especially weird if Haruhi is responcible for style and tastes in the future (unless the tastes of the future are in place to counter the fetishes of the god empress Haruhi.)

I'll admit. I HAVE become fond of the anime depiction of Mikuru in the waitress corset. Though as you said. Some of her less...top heavy portrayals do have merit.

Wow, Itsuki's smile looks as fake as a six-pound note here. It's kind of chilling, really.

The shadows over his eyes kind of add to it.

I always had that disturbed feeling with Itsuki's constant smiling. But adding that shadow over his eyes just makes the sinister feeling even more chilling... He would make a perfect candidate for an antagonist with just that face expression alone.
