[[folder:Genre Savvy]]

* Speaking of which, how exactly did Haruhi get so GenreSavvy? Her knowledge of tropes would imply that she's been analytically reading novels and watching TV and movies for years, but she seems to spend most of her time trying to find things in fiction in RealLife. Did she just watch them a lot and then get bored with them a little while before we met her? Did she just reads all of this stuff [[HomePage elsewhere]]? (OK that last one is more like WMG/WildMassGuessing)
** Didn't she mention that she was bored, like, in the first episode? Maybe when she said that she was 'bored', she was practically bored of EVERYTHING. Including fiction.

** That's what's so scary about Ryoko - ''she doesn't have anything against Kyon at all''. Heck, she even seems passably fond of him for the most part! If he wasn't Haruhi's "most important person" she'd just be a kind, caring class rep to him even if he was part of the SOS Brigade. While it's unlikely she has true emotions she's basically having a moment like Nagato had in Disappearance, except instead of altering the world to get out of her ungodly boring existence she and the radical faction decided it'd be better to just break and few eggs to make SCIENCE! happen (Kind of like GLaDOS really). As I recall she and Kyon were actually getting along in Disappearance and she only attacked him because he was acting against Nagato to undo her alterations and she seemed programmed to defend alter!Nagato and the revised world. She's a bit weird in Surprise since she outright says that Kyon is "her prey" and that she still thinks it'd be interesting if he died yet she doesn't do anything to hurt him despite the fact that literally no one could have stopped her - she might have some other goal at this point that she needs Kyon for since she tried to get him to let her return from 'Canada'...

** Giant anime eyes are merely a visual effect -- it's not something the characters actually have in the fictional universe. I presume Mikuru "really" has normal-sized human eyes, and so the contact lens is probably depicted close to its "real" size when taken off. It's the same in ''CodeGeass'' -- Lelouch's Geass-blocking contact lens is realistically sized when it's shown off his eye.

** 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.

[[folder:They're all girls]]

* 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.
