You see, Kyon created Haruhi to become a way to ventilate his frustration about growing up and becoming more and more disillusioned with the world.

Haruhi is basically Kyon's Inner Child made manifest. The fact that she was incarnated as a girl mearly indicates his driving will to function together with her as well as his developing libido.
>>

The others, Espers, Timetravellers and what have you, are merely byproducts by Haruhi, indirectly created by Kyon, and are all interestingly enough attracted to him; even though they show this in different ways.

Yuki, for example, represents Kyon's sense of helplessness against a world he cannot influence. She is so ridiculously overpowered and in control of anything, she reflects his view on the world and himself as a mere youth.
She manifests her desire for him simply by being the first to open up for him, which can be parallelled with the real world giving him friends and a purpose of existance, and she protects him from getting killed.

Mikuru overly represents Kyon's active libido and also his will to have a partner or similar whom he can protect, in a traditional partiarchic sense a man with his wife being a less powerful and independent individual.

Itsuku is Kyon's very personal Kaworu (NGE) who acts as a sort of naive, forbidden attraction to other men; a phase present even in otherwise heterosexual men. Itsuku also represent Kyon's views on the incomptence of authority, as despite his esper power he's generally perceived as nothing but a slightly more gifted human.

I think Haruhi is amongst the DEEPest and most brilliant anime that's been made in the past decade and if I was willing to write essays about it like the faggots who wrote essays on GL I'd become a tripfag and you'd all hate me to death. However, I suppose we're mutually spared the inconvenience because I've always operated with an "I'm right and you're wrong and I don't have to explain myself" as far as art goes (Haruhi is the only anime I've ever bestowed the term 'art' upon).

Anyways, the point is, I'm a pretentious ponce about Haruhi, but I fully insist "Kyon is actually God" and other similar theories are completely retarded. You're on the right track, but you're off.

>>
>>11288813

There are two possible solutions to how Kyon can come up with all these characters without anyone realizing.

Either

a) Kyon does have a few friends, although Mikuru, Yuki and Itsuku are all either completely imaginary or he just imagines random classmates being them at the time. Haruhi doesn't exist, or she's a girl he sees regularly, but can't sum up the courage to talk to. So he imagines them do all these things.

b) Kyon is comatose/mad. <-Bad Ending.

>>
>>11288709

As an added note on Mikuru, notice that she agrees to EVERYTHING she's made to do, even though she hates doing it.

I think, if anything, this indicate's a distinctive desire by Kyon to have a traditional wife, i.e. someone to boss around.

I can totally picture Kyon sitting by himself in the "club room", reading a book, looking out the window and giving a sigh every now and then.

I think everyone who watches SHnY gets the though in their head that Kyon might be the real god (and Haruhi is her prophet). I know I did. I'm still a believer. I believe in the god Kyon, who, unknowing to himself, is the prime mover; and his avatar, Suzumiya Haruhi, who was revealed to all but herself. I believe in this world, created by John Smith; I believe in Kyonko, the spirit of Kyon, who illuminates us with the reflection of Kyon's light in the night before Season Two.


Side-note, many of the characters in SHnY seem to have a secret from themselves - Haruhi doesn't know she's 'God', Mikuru doesn't know about Legal Mikuru, and Yuki gets into time-travel shenanigans and actually goes through much of the time-line with lost memories or something idummember. And of course Kyon doesn't know he's God.

This analysis leaves out Taniguchi and others who knew Haruhi before Kyon ever met her.

/a/ is tsunderay for haroohee suzumeyah no U2.
>>
>>11289116

Well, it does, that's true. But there's a very easy, if somewhat ghey way to explain them.

Haruhi, having more or less access to Kyon's god-like Powers (as an unknowing proxy, as she's part of Kyon anyway) wormed a trail of memory about herself into them.

Seeing as no one really knows her besides her strange personality and appearance, this isn't entirely impossible since it would require very little memory modifications aside from "She's strange and I only dated her for five minutes."

>>
>>11288728
Of course Kyon is comatose. He is in the same comatose state along with his friends Ash Ketchum, Naruto Uzumaki, and Ichigo Kurosaki.
>>
Okay, so what about the bizzaro god/esper/alien/time traveler set from the most recent novel? It kind of lends itself to the theory that Kyon simply attracts these kinds of things rather than create them. We know he enjoys his life with the SOS-dan, so why introduce conflict?

Wait, so are you saying Kyon is God?

Because there's a hella difference between "just imagining things" and "being God"
>>
>>11289956

There is a lot more evidence to this theory in the novels. At one point Kyon mentions that he would like to be in exciting situations but only as a bystander. Thus he gives Haruhi the power to create fun situations that he can do just that, he doesn't actually create her, just gives her powers.

And it comes to Sakaki, the evidence mounts.
>>
>>11290096
Kyon is hardly a bystander in the situations he creates, though.
>>
>>11290140

He's more like a henchman though, or rather he's the "mascot" of the main character who never really does anything, but points out the flaws in its masters' plans.

Not really, he's the "thinking" man alongside Koizumi in pretty much every situations that Haruhi creates, then Yuki comes and save the day as usual.
Haruhi is the one who basically become a bystander later in the novel.
