Although very little is revealed about Haruhi’s childhood, she mentioned a revelatory incident when she attended a baseball game with her family. While she regarded her life as special as a child, the sheer number of people in the stadium brings her to the realization that they fit into the normal, everyday occurrences and habits of Japanese citizens and humans in general. Haruhi believes that at least one person in the world would have a truly unique and interesting life, and she searched for the extraordinary in order to become that person.
Stunning cosplay by Mizuno Shiro! I really like this outfit for Haruhi, although I have no idea whether this actually appeared in the series or not. I know there’s a figure though… Thanks again to Yuna for sending this!
