Haruhi and her rather egoistic and her cruel personality have resonated through out the first episode of Sighs to the recently aired episode when Kyon finally flips out at Haruhi. The problem is that lead up with some people ending up hating Haruhi since she have become a complete b**ch. This was also the case with the light novel which actually showed more of her being a complete b**ch. If Haruhi acted like that in real life, most people would just ignore her as a complete ***hole.
The Sighs of Suzumiya Haruhi finally shows Haruhi’s true colors that she has no morals nor values her friendship. Maybe because she is a goddess, but in real life, if you were to act like a complete jerk to your friends most of the time, you would probably lose most of your friends. The reason Haruhi is not my favorite character although she is funny sometimes is that she always take advantage of her friends (especially Mikuru the most, although sometimes funny) and also doing despicable acts that in real life would have big moral issues (like throwing a person into a pond, forcing someone to change into a different clothing against his/her desire, spiking Mikuru’s drink with tequila and also Haruhi smacking Mikuru which is a big no-no because “contact lens is supposed to fly out when your head gets smacked which is stupid… If this was real life and Haruhi indeed did this, there would have been moral consequences that would involve with it (such as assault, slipping alcohol in someone’s drink, potential loss of friendship, injury, etc.). Although Haruhi thinks that Mikuru is a toy, there are also moral issues by using a human being as a toy because seriously, humans aren’t meant to be used as a toy you can fool around with since they have feelings, which apparently, Haruhi completely disregards which makes Kyon angry. Haruhi have no right to treat Mikuru as a toy and smack her around as much she wants because you know, hitting a innocent girl is a wrong thing to do.
Should Haruhi deserved to be punched for being an immoral, cruel ***hole by Kyon, even if hitting girls is wrong? I believe so because even if it causes dire consequences such as the world ending, it would have teach her a important lesson, threat others as you would threat you and also stop acting like a complete jerk and respect her friends. If Kyon just let Haruhi continuing being a jerk, she would eventually stay a complete ***hole as Kyon says it and eventually everyone would ultimately avoid her. Too bad Itsuki stopped him before Kyon was able to punch Haruhi in the face.
After watching the forth episode of Sighs, it made me appreciate Kyon and the other members of the SOS Brigade. Believe me, it took a lot of courage for Kyon to ultimately flip out since he knew the consequences of the world ending if he successfully hits Haruhi in the face. The Sighs arc, despite Haruhi having a energetic, non-***hole side of her personality made me hate her as a character completely because she have a lot of flaws of being a immoral, cruel, cold ***hole as presented in the actions she did in the forth episode of Sighs. While some people may disagree with me, Haruhi is a flawed character, although she is a unique one because of her mostly dominant cruel side of her that turns me off completely… Despite that, she is a enjoyable character when she is not acting as a complete ***hole that everyone wants to avoid and hate as demonstrated in Sighs of Suzumiya Haruhi, but I still have stronger preferences for other characters though.
Hopefully, Haruhi finally gets out of being a complete jerk when she finally recorded the whole movie… or maybe not… ¶
