Maybe just looking at minor details too much.. but alot doesn't make sense -yet-.. at least to me ; ; But why would you refuse to be social with "normal" humans then go out and advertise a club you are running is looking for members.
Just to add on some of my thoughts.
Maybe Haruhi has an interest in Kyon cos he was the one that inspired her to start the SOS Dan. Maybe in her view that elevated him to an "above normal" status. Or maybe she's just this really self-centered (crazy?) girl who is just using all the SOS members to further her own goals. Perhaps to her the ends justify the means, even if it entails advertising for the SOS in bunny suits. lol

9 out of 10 for me.... mostly because the animation seemed a bit off in some parts.
(though the Haruhi kick is pretty amazing animation if you look at it frame by frame)

I'm beginning to see what Mikuru is about and how important her role is ... and why she's willing to take such maligning AND how Kyon provides her some anchorage... her conversation with Kyon has a tragically heroic twist to it in ep3.
This looks like its turning into some nicely interlocking relationship stuff.

I think she acknowledges that Kyon has a higher-than-average consciousness of reality, partly agreeing with her that typical humans are boring, yet refuted her that not all humans are (ep 2).

As for Mikuru, she sees in him a caring and worried individual that is helping her out. I wonder how popular she is in the school in general. She looks to be a reclusive person.

Concerning Haruhi's treatment of Mikuru, I have the guilty pleasure of appreciating it, and Kyon too on a certain level.

Kyon, whose name no one care to recall, follows none other than the spectre of Don Quixote as Sancho Panza did. (I like the sound of that)

A successful Don Quixote, oxymoron at that... maybe, that's Haruhi?

Mikuru is pretty popular among the guys in school.

She has to be, for the reasons Haruhi already spelled out in the 2nd episode.

Spoiler for I guess you probably noticed it... but I'll say it anyway:


Concerning Kyon

I think Kyon is suppose to represent the general public (your average viewer) like Watson in Sherlock Holmes... basically even if things go totally weird or eccentric... if Kyon keeps it real, and acts realistically then the public will buy it... or at least give it some credibility...

Anyway to put it simply Kyon is there to eliminate the cheese factor

Watching through the episode again, I do believe that the BGM did influence me greatly on why I felt so uncomfortable with Mikuru's crises. It's hard to take a bullying scene seriously when the music is going "oom-PAH oom-PAH", but when it's serious, sad violins, and Mikuru sadly asking Kyon if he'll help her if her life is ruined because of this, humour begins to feel inappropriate.

Yeah, the Ska piece during the blackmail scene was great.

:O I've actually read the first Hyperion book...was going to a place with rather limited internet for three weeks, figured I'd need something to read and just randomly bought it. And it's the only real scifi novel I've read, ever.

Anyways, this episode was awesome because of the ruthless mikuru exploitation and the revelation in the end. Up to this point I thought this series is just fooling around in high school without any big twist. =P

talking about detail. for some really strange reason. in the last scene of of kyon and yuki. I keep noticing when you looked out from yuki's patio window you can see the red light falshing on the buildings and in one instants a plane was flying across the screen with kyon in it but you could only see the navigation lights, when the scen cut to yuki you 'll see the plane continue flashing across.

talk about detail!

Sorry, I guess I mistakenly answered from info not yet mentioned in the anime

And from what has been spoiled elsewhere by the novel readers, and from what you quoted...

//EDIT: Since you weren't very precise in your earlier post... I wasn't sure if you meant who the alien was, or the person ^^;;
//EDIT2: After reading AvatarST's follow up post... I originally saw the Bolded section... but wasn't sure if that was your doing, or the original poster... so I didn't think twice about it ^^;; Behold the power of quoting ^^
