In the third novel “The Boredom of Suzumiya Haruhi”, Haruhi told everyone during the SOS Brigade's standard after-school meeting to write down wishes for the Tanabata festival. After the meeting was over, Mikuru took Kyon back in time, to the Tanabata festival three years ago, where he met Haruhi in seventh grade. He was then coerced into helping her, much like she does in present time. When she asked him his name, Kyon simply replied, “John Smith”.
Cute cosplay from Tanzoir of Deviant Art! I love her expression on this photo! It looks like she’s either plotting something, or seeing through a lie. Thanks again for letting me post this!
