Interestingly, Hanai does seem to have some GAR traits. (The fact that what he says is the same as what he thinks is just one example.)

Two words: Gurren Lagann.
Two more: Tengen Toppa. XD

But ya...Youko, I presume? (...Note: I just found out that Youko is supposedly around the same age as Simon. Who is fourteen at the beginning of the show. o_O?)

Soul Blazer is another example of an amazing old game. One of the best RPGs ever, in my books.
What's it about? Or at least, what sort of RPG is it? (i.e. fantasy, science fiction, science fantasy, etc.)

I think that's just more his simplemindedness, but...

Not just Yoko... every girl in the show. Even Nia has GAR moments.

I would like to present the TV Tropes - Crowning Moment Of Awesome : Mecha Anime page for people to really see just how much Awesome there is in Gurren Lagann.

Well, he gets to share a name with another guy. Male-kuru has to share a name with the rich, elegant, round-racked, in-game-date-able character of Persona 3.

If you and the rest of the people of this project don't mind my butting in here, male Mikuru's name alluding to a character such as Kirijo-senpai would bring you to think more feminine than masculine, as what the idea seems to be.

Though I suspect those unfamiliar with Japanese naming would think so since Mitsuru seems to be a generic, androgynous name, as many males also have that name, i.e. Mitsuru Adachi or Mitsuru Karahashi.

I'm wondering how you guys would take it if an outsider were to claim 9000th.

On the subject of 'Make Haruki look less like a jerk' - remember after the first patrol, when Kyon originally finds his bicycle has been towed and he has to walk all the way home, perhaps pay a fine? Haruhi was nowhere to be seen.

In our Seitenkan version, we could have Haruki cycle past and find Kyonko fuming about finding the message about her bicycle having been towed away.
Spoiler for Dialogue ideas:

Spoiler for Dialogue ideas:
Haruki doesn't have a bicycle, as far as I know. He takes the train home.

Also, he was in too much of a bad mood when he left, remember? He didn't even show up on Monday.

Lastly, Kyon-chan doesn't have a mother, or she isn't around. Much like how, in the original, Kyon's father is never mentioned.

It's a good idea, but...
