He's pretty normal and realistic, unlike the other characters in the show(I'm not saying they're bad or whatever)...
He's also the male lead of the show and the narrator of the story(his narrating is quite interesting)...
There you go...

Just like some others have said he's about as normal and realistic as it gets.
Of course he has his great narration, is pretty intelligent, funny and is pretty much just a normal guy like you and me. He gets frustrated, annoyed, happy and isn't your generic perfect guy. Hell he even tries to hit Haruhi out of anger from her acting like a bitch! He has his flaws and actually looks like a normal male instead of being a pretty boy like in a ton of other high school based animes.

Honestly I love having a Kyon type character in the school animes I've watched more than any other type of character. Sorry if he seems boring to you but I find having a real down to Earth character fantastic. We all have our own tastes though.
Touch me, you filthy casual~

HA! What did you expect? Well, first of all, he's the only normal one in the group. Don't tell me you're like Haruhi and keep on pressing chicks' boobs for the show; the same way you're not like the others. The only one people can relate to is Kyon, therefore. And hey, he is intelligent. He's likable, too. The only part I don't like about him is that he has a liking for Mikuru when he can do the same with Haruhi, who of course is a much better candidate. Mikuru is too stupid to be Kyon's type, therefore Kyon would be better off with Haruhi.


Mikuru is the type of character fine in real life, but you cannot stand when looking at in a show. I personally like Yuki......


People like that aren't fine in real life. I've known a chick like that and the whole shy crap is like pulling teeth.

Because if you looked past everything that's stated, you would realize Kyon is the real god and Haruhi is just a puppet to look like the god of the world, so Kyon won't realize it he's the real one being observed, after all: (light novel spoilers)



actually I have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm half asleep so no one take me seriously xD

In a series full of weird characters and extraordinary things, he stood out the most because he was the normal one. Plus his toughs that we here throughout the show are very funny and even awesome sometimes.

The theory that he is the "god" existed before Sasaki made an appearance but thats a nice way to put it too.
------------------------
Those that watched the anime,even without reading the LN, and still think that he isnt intelligent probably dont know what intelligence is.
Throughout both the anime and LN Kyon describes himself as a normal human and a average student.

Then he became a
and especially in the LN his knowledge is above that of an average student.

And you like the original Yuki,who is not human,not realistic and barely has anything to say,AND WHEN SHE DOES you say you didnt like her?

oh i see, I never really looked around the net that much when I watched Haruhi, though I did hear about some people saying Kyon was the key to locking Haruhi's powers, but never that he was the real god *A*

He's actually fairly intelligent for a normal human.

That and he's a snarky douchebag. Glorious.

His thought process is fairly realistic.


He's a good character

Well key to her powers and god is the same thing if you think about it.
Now we just have to wait and see if he indeed is all that.

yeah you've got a point there ^_^ Novels 10 and 11, I say, were worth the 4 year wait (even though I only got into haruhi a year before they came out, still think they were worth the wait)

hopefully he does something with

Yeah I find him boring as well. I honestly couldn't see what Haruhi saw that made her fall for him, not that I like Haruhi
Maybe cause I can hardly relate to him.

The question you should be asking is why Haruhi is liked by so many people. Seriously Haruhi is just a selfish, arrogant brat that just do what she wants without consenting other's around her. I really dislike her character and without Kyon talking 80% of the time I would have dropped this show already. Without him it will be boring as fuck and be annoyed by Haruhi.

yep, she asked everyone if they were not busy in the movie, instead of ordering them around :3 but it's too bad, i think hers, and everyone elses characters really start changing after the disappearance, too bad anime only viewers can't see that, yet~

Then you're not paying attention. Then again, you don't have to if you don't want to. But the answer to that is there, in the show, if you felt like looking for it a bit.

Thank you. I've noticed that some people don't seem to care much for character growth.

I like Kyon, though he's my second favorite character in the show( my top favourite being Nagato).
I guess part of his charm as a character is that he subverts the 'ordinary' high school student trope with his astuteness and snarkiness, which kinda makes him 'not ordinary'.

I was honestly quite surprised that Kyon's popularity in MAL actually surpassed Nagato's when I checked days ago. I was certain that Nagato was much more popular than Kyon in MAL 1-2 years ago. I'm definitely intrigued by his rise in popularity.

Personally, I find him extremely boring. He does surprisingly little to contribute to the events of the show (besides being the reason the SOS Brigade exists) and I really don't like his personality. I'm also bothered by his lack of intelligence... I just can't relate with him at all. He's my second least favorite character (Mikuru being my least favorite).

So why is Kyon so popular?


He is good and works as the normal guy.

Koizumi's much more annoying. All he says is " can you imagine what would happen if Hardin got upset?". He says that like 5 times every episode.
