Remember that problem with Haruhi where many fans get hung up in her being a Jerkass
, avoiding her character development.
This is Meet The Suzumiyas, but worse.
Haruhi is... terrible. She is selfish, violent, inconsiderate, selfish, rude, selfish and plain abusive. It's worse that the first chapters in the anime. Sure, she had her moments
, few and far between, when she is "cute" and "nice", but its like having your spouse beat the living crap out of you everyday and bougth you flowers at the end of the week as an apology.
And Ouki, his father is ten times worse. He beat the living crap out of Kyon
, not once but twice (if we don't count the rest of the Training sessions) for incredible petty reason. Mainly because Haruhi lied to him about SOS Brigade was about. Let's recapitulate, a thirty, highly trained adult brutally beated, kicked, punched to the point of leaving his eye bleeding, pulverizing his face and nearly breaking his bones a 17 year old untrained Kid. Before that he tortured, and I mean
tortured with deadlocks and pressure points especifically done to casue massive pain for over and hour because Haruhi, once again didn't tell him about Kyon moving (which was Haruhi idea) and wanted to get revenge on kyon... because he is a guy. And after this, he put to work kyon like an slave, screaming at him and sneering at his pains and bruises.
The guy is a psycho with severe anger problems that should be in jail.
Oh but he is a good father, a flawed human and everything is in good fun between real men
Worse of all, is that many fans said the characterization of Kyon was totally canon. No it wasn't
. While he was unmotivated and patient, here he is such a Extreme Doormat
that is sickening. In canon he had his limits. Here he is always believing all its his fault, having to constantly apologize to this, this BRUTES and their never ending sadistic games.
Good god, Kyon is the textbook example of a beated wife. I could'nt finish the Fic because it sicked me that this was going to a romantic ending. Seriously, this is just a plain disturbing, pseudo parody of a Romantic Comedy.
Its just plain Horrible work of Romance Fic and put simple, a terrible Fic for all its great work and effort it was put.
