A Brief Observation of Asahina Mikuru

May 27, 2006

A thought has been swimming round my head for a while now. Warning, though there are spoilers for anyone who hasn't watched past episode 5 of Haruhi Suzumiya no Yuuutsu.

Mikuru-chan is a mystery to me.

I assume all I'm going to say will be dealt with in later episodes, but if it isn't, I'll be slightly disappointed.

1. If Mikuru-chan is supposed to be a time traveller sent back in time to observe Haruhi, then obviously she would have to fit the part (i.e. Well endowed loli), but why is she such a coward?

Surely if you needed to send someone back from the future to fix the past, you'd send someone you could rely on? Not someone who faints whenever they see a dead body O_o…Or is it all an act? Is Mikuru chan really a brave fearless time-traveller who just happens to be amazing at acting like a spineless moemoe bishoujo? I for one, seriously doubt it.

2. I'm sure someone's already commented on this, but isn't this adult Mikuru? (from the OP)

This also puzzled me when Kyon asked for Mikuru's real age in episode 5. Why would going back in time change someone's age? Obviously the picture in the OP suggests that in her time she is probably about 25-30 (lipstick = adult – obviously high school girls don't wear lipstick :/). Unless, she is from a time when you can alter your genetic code to pose as any age you want, so that she would be sempai to Haruhi and be in a position to observe her – Also unlikely.

So there you go. Mikuru is an enigma. How does she keep her youthful charms so…well, youthful? Is she really that spineless?

    Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
