** Even worse than the word esper is the use of the word Slider which is never given a meaning in the novels, and not even used in the anime (that I remember) all of the [=WMGs=] relating to it suggest its supposed to be a dimensional traveller but the only other place I have heard it being used like that is in ''{{Sliders}}'' I wouldn't think bad North American Sci-Fi and Japanese LightNovels have that cultural overlap.

** Anyone a fan of the Terminator series, especially TheSarahConnorChronicles? Why don't people notice the obvious flaws in behavior? Because no one believes in killer robots from the future! You're just not likely to think of that. No matter how weird Nagato and her "relatives" act, unless they do something obviously superhuman, they'll be seen as nothing more than possibly deranged people. (There are weird enough people in real life, what's a few more?) Although I have to wonder, assuming Nagato gets to last many more years, once she graduates from high school, how does she get a job with her crippling lack of social skills? And one wonders, what happens if Japanese Intelligence or some other organization finds a reason to investigate them? (Given their reality altering powers, though, I suspect such an investigation simply wouldn't last long.)

** That would explain why she expects the brigade-members to behave like [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina 2.0]] when dealing with something. What do you mean you're exhausted?

\n** We've only seen three of its interfaces. If their genders were chosen completely at random, there's a 12.5% chance they'd all be girls. Statistically, that's not particularly improbable. As for age, they were given the ages best suited for their roles. Asakura and Yuki are the same age as Haruhi because they need to observe and interact with her on a regular basis, while Kimadori is a year older so that she's still within the range of allowing her to reasonably interact with/observe Haruhi, but also giving her a bit of extra authority in case she needs to explain why Yuki or Asakura are following her orders as overseer.

* Why did the Data Overmind make all the humanoid interfaces we see girls? Perhaps there are some in the form of boys, or grown men or women? Why don't we seem to see them? (Leaving open the possibility that we have seen them, but we haven't learned that.)

** Also, Kyon actually enjoys the craziness life with Haruhi inflicts on him, so ultimately, he chose the dangerous fantastic realm over the safe normalcy of the AU... huh, puting it that way almost makes the choice seem OutOfCharacter doesn't it?
** In addition, if you ask me, it's something of an UnfortunateImplication that normal life isn't worth persuing.

** How does Mikuru survive the time changes she randomly imposes on the past by say breathing? (See Film/TheButterflyEffect.) The only (non MST3K song) explanation that makes sense to me is that she's a descendant of Haruhi and so under the protection of Haruhi's powers. (Wouldn't it be fun if Mikuru's true present age was like negative one or two years? "Daddy, mommy, don't fight!")

to:

** The interfaces are sort of hybrids between the Overmind and humans. It lacks the ability to communicate directly, but it can understand language and most other things humans do--the problem is that it's too far beyond us, not the other way around. Some random guy with the power to see data is severely affected just by seeing Yuki communicating with it, and she says prolonged exposure would have killed him (just exposure to the ''communication''; seeing the Overmind itself would have killed him instantly). So basically the Overmind copied some human archetypes--the quiet bookworm, the outgoing class president--and gave them enough expanded understanding to be able to communicate with it, thus acting as a bridge. The condos are likewise easy: They bought them, using cash, which they probably created out of thin air.
