Well, Kyon's not perfect. ^^; I figured that he's not that honourable, and yeah, apparently he isn't.

Kyon doesn't just has his eyes on Mikuru only, in the novels, he frequently imagines Haruhi in the various costumes Mikuru wears lol

And Haruhi catches him all the time, like when he was wondering about a 'battle waitress Haruhi' lol.

He's a normal guy. He doesn't actively pursue that kind of stuff, but if it falls in his lap, he doesn't argue with it

I think the reason Kyon doesn't always stop Haruhi is because, whether he knows it or not, he having just as much fun as she is. He always intervenes when Asahina's suffering because too great, though.

Yeah, despite what Kyon always complains about, I think he goes along partly because he really is just as bored as Haruhi.

I know that when I watch the series I always have to remind myself that no matter what Kyon says, it's still Kyon (ie a human being) saying it, and he's very much a human being not being honest with himself/realizing his "true" subconscious feelings. It's an oddly refreshing feeling.

From episode 4:



Someone probably mentioned it before, but I guess the real reason why Haruhi didn't go ahead was because Kyon himself said ponytails turned him on. Dang, I need to rewatch the series to catch all this minor references.

How can you be so sure that he's a normal human being?

The episode where Haruhi orders Kyon to take pictures of Mikuru in that maid outfit would be an excellent example.

"Normal guy" and "normal human being" can, at times, be entirely separate and distinct concepts.

Im just glad they didnt make kyon just like every other spineless shinji clone "nice guy" It was the fact that the main male character wasnt some lame cookie cutter cliche that got me intersted in this series in the first place.

I thought that was the funniest moment of the series. Maybe it hit a little too close to home, doh. Kiss was good; since Haruhi reminds me so much of Shana, I thought that series also should've had a similar moment to close it out. I don't care if it's cliche or not, it works, like a charm.

I thought the Snow White and Sleeping Beauty references were ever so slightly cheesy though. Plus...aren't they two different stories? One has the apple, and one has like a frog I thought? They should've been consistent about it. And I didn't feel like their significance was adequately explained, and instead they were kind of forced. I could infer their significance, but I would've liked it to be at least a little more spelled out. Initially I had no idea how the Snow White premonition would play out. I'm still unclear on it.

Those parts were strong too. Also the drenched changing/drying scene--where's the ecchi? heheh. More romance!

Snow White and Sleeping Beauty are tied together by a single similar ending.

Snow White ate a magical poison apple and 'died', but the magic was broken by a kiss from the Prince.

Sleeping Beauty was stung by a magical poison needle and was 'put to sleep', again this spell can be broken by a Prince.

To break Haruhi's 'spell' and wake her from the dream, 'Prince' Kyon has to kiss her.

Because the kiss is a catalyst of sort to snap Haruhi outta her dream. So... the only thing that can be done its the kiss .

KyoAni took out the explanation, because it just seemed too obvious (apparently not obvious enough ) and likely would ruin the "shock" of the kiss.

Kyon in the novel thought about the two "hints", and claim that by the stage they were running away from the blue giants, he already knows what it meant he has to do. But just like our good old Kyon, he kept complaining about how cliched this is, and that he really doesn't want to "play by the script".

The whole reason why you have two different fairy-tales, is because you are suppose to identify what was in common between these two stories.

(p.s. Frog? What frog? There is no frogs in Sleeping Beauty or Snow White! )

Must've been another story, I think where a princess kisses a frog actually. I never did like how Sleeping Beauty and Snow White were so similar. Snow White was ugly too

Kyon kissing Haruhi--sure it woke her, but why? There has to be some rationale behind it. Otherwise we have a fairy tale on our hands. Which is romantic enough, but not logical! Those giants definitely reminded me of Mononoke.

This is probably as simple as it gets.
