He's relatively taller than Haruhi, which is emphasised a lot in camera shots and whatnot; and Haruhi is the kind of person who seems taller than she really is. So i tend to get the impression that Kyon is a GIANT!

Actually Itsuki is 5'10. And he's considered somwhat tall. Kyon's at 5'7.

Japanese people are short.

Well Haruhi is a standard sized Japanese teenage girl. She's only half a head shorter than him. The biggest thing that makes her seem shorter than him, is the fact that most anime girls are depicted as far more petite than the guys are. Kyon's chest/shoulders are about 65-68% broader than Haruhi's.



It also helps that the 2 girls who Haruhi tends to interact with physically the most, are both shorter than average.

Just write Kaisos ver 2, Jintor Edit 2, Discreet Edit 2.

And I have some free time, I'll be editing now.

^ How about interpreting that as Volume 1 Chapter 2.1 Ver-K2J2D2?

Yep. If it weren't for her enormous breasteses, she'd be the perfect little loli character. (and Haruhi probably would've abducted her because of that)

There's only a 2cm difference, so it's not that noticeable.

You know, I keep picturing an older Kyon's siter to look like Kyonko with a side ponytail. . . and a hell of a lot more cheerful.

What is scary is that Yuki and Mikuru are shorter than Ayu from Kanon. Mikuru by over an inch (3cm actually).

Ayu only seems short because Yuuichi is HUGE.

I recall it went, from tallest to shortest, Haruki, Yuuki, Mikuuru , Itsuki, and Kyonko.

Forgot the exact measurements but does that really matter all that much now?

Department Of Redundancy Department: We figured it out around here.



Also, I know it's late in the game, but can we do the cat bit like Red Dwarf did it?

Err... wait... hmm... in the genderswapped universe in Red Dwarf, The Cat was replaced with The Dog... so... you want Shamisen to be a dog?

But... then Shamisen's name wouldn't make sense. Does anybody know of an instrument made from dog?

THAT is the fly in the ointment... nice thought experiment though.

After googling it, it turns out that actually, both cat and dog skins were used to make shamisens. But still, a dog familliar on the shoulder of an evil alien magician is just weird. Besides, it means that Rossieu would have to be a cat.
