Guy getting that close to Godzilla's mouth = guy being eaten by Godzilla.

She does get Wandering Shadow though, and the ending of Intrigues is all hers. Vol. 10 will probably have a lot of focus on her too... if it ever comes out.

It's not as bad as I make it out to be. We won't be getting much Haruhi-centric stuff in S2 though.

Thank you for that.

The analogy would work better with Gamera than Godzilla (friend of children and all that).

And while the plotlines seem to focus away from Haruhi, all actions/resolutions seems to be based on her for one reason or another. Each one reenforces Haruhi with Kyon in some way or another even if Yuki or Mikuru have the majority of the attention in the story.

Won't stop me from liking Yuki more than Haruhi, but I don't see any real shipper cases being realistic aside from Haruhi and Kyon unless there is a massive shift in the little details in future novels.

Well given the fact that the main story of "S2" is The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, I'd say that's rather fitting

Voted for Haruhi, Kyon and Tsuruya.

Haruhi: Conniving, vindictive, impulsive, egocentric and ultra-moody. Haruhi is both the protagonist and anti-hero all in one.

Kyon: Love the snark, the rapid-fire internal commentary and his interactions with Haruhi.

Tsuruya: Bubbly, eccentric with a speech impediment. Fav for being so vary different from the rest of the cast.

I don't know why people still think this.

Everything important happens to Kyon, not her. She's just a catalyst and a foil to Kyon.

Because she's the title character and present for most of the stories people who haven't read the novels are familiar with. You have to remember that not everyone has actually went out of their way to do that

I know, but, not even that.

Kyon is the focal character for the entire story, is the male lead, and is honestly more plot important than Haruhi is. You can tell this just from watching the series, particularly the central Melancholy arc.

If we're going to be picky then switch protagonist to deuteragonist.

I actually had to look that up.

Why not just "major character"?

Because you were objecting to the literary term. I was trying to simplify things. Technically Haruhi could also be called the antagonist, too.

To an extent, yeah, but she's not actively malicious (other than her molestation of Mikuru, which is supposed to be funny, a fact that many people seem to miss) or acting against Kyon's interests.

I'd prefer to call her a catalyst.

The real antagonists start to show up in the later books. I'd suggest you read them, as they are awesome.

Yea Haruhi is both the protagonist and antagonist as I mentioned earlier and is why I related her to Godzilla.

I don't see her as Gamera though, she doesn't make friends with people, not to say children.

The SOS-dan are her friends, but she calls them subordinates and were all abducted by her lol

@Kaisos who ninja'd me:

That is when Haruhi transfer to protagonist and its like Godzilla vs Space Godzilla.

Never said she was malicious, just that she is technically the antagonist in the anime series that we've seen thus far.

Haruhi is always acting against Kyon's interests in the anime series. That's what the first season is all about. Just because she doesn't fill the traditional role of antagonist = villain, doesn't make her any less of an antagonist.

I've been restraining myself from reading the novels because I don't want the anime to have less impact. Once the series is complete, I will go back and read them with pleasure. For the meantime, I will remain spoiler free.

This depends on what you interpret Kyon's interests as. I'd say that he's gotten what he's always really wanted, just that he doesn't see it, not yet.

quigonkenny had a great post about that in the second season thread, but I'm too lazy to go find it so I'll just restate what he said here.

Trust me, reading the novels beforehand will not lessen the impact of the anime any. The anime is basically the exact same as the novels, and what it changes it usually improves.

It's not that kind of adaptation, simply put.

It's only nine votes, and Kyon's the freaking main character. Besides, I consider the Great Goddess being the highest ranking non-central, non-title character a huge achievement.
