Not just any anime character, but Haruhi Suzumiya, the reality warping, god-like ultra-director, supersleuth, Admiral, and leader of the SOS Brigade!

Haven't you seen The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya?

I keep seeing you reference it. Like, all the time. What in the hell is it?

An anime, I'm guessing?

Yes, an anime series.

Basic plot is a regular guy named Kyon meets a strange girl named Haruhi Suzumiya. Haruhi is 'not interested in ordinary humans' and wants to do extraordinary things like you see on TV shows. Especially the crazy anime series that have magical girls, giants robots, strange mysteries, and all that.

In talking with Haruhi, Kyon accidentally gives Haruhi the idea to start a club dedicated to making strange things occur and then investigating them. Haruhi proceeds to form a club called the SOS Brigade and forces Kyon, the quiet and unemotional Yuki Nagato, the well endowed and helplessly cute Mikuru Asahina, and the mysterious transfer student Itsuki Koizumi to join upon pain of death. The club has been meticulously built to attract strangeness because everyone knows to attract strange things you need an intrepid leader, a seemingly normal guy to do all the grunt work, an unemotional girl, a cute girl, and a mysterious transfer student.

Then the strange stuff starts happening. To Kyon. First the three other club members reveal themselves to be an alien, a time traveler, and a psychic who represent organizations that are monitoring Haruhi because they have reason to believe that she is able to subconsciously warp reality to suit her needs. Then his classmates attack Kyon with knives. Then Haruhi gets bored. When Haruhi gets bored, strange things start happening to the world to entertain her. If she gets bored/upset enough, she may even destroy the world and rebuild it in a more interesting form. All the while, Haruhi doesn't notice all the strange stuff going on or writes it off as 'normal'.

Meanwhile, Kyon just wants to get with cute redhead time traveler. And survive.

The series is largely a humor series that will parody anything and everything, especially other anime series. But it also has some cute romantic and social subplots going on.

So, what political interpretation would you think the writer of this series is trying to make? You know that in America we need to politicize everything.

Haruhi herself is like one big 'Just be Yourself' after school special that has taken copious amounts of caffeine and forces other people to bend to her will...

So...Libertarian?

And rock shows, bunny girls with AK-47s, epic space battles, giant monsters, computer viruses that kidnap people, knife wielding schoolgirls, murder mysteries, baseball games for the fate of the universe, and an entire episode dedicated to space heaters.

That actually genuinely sounds like a story I'd be interested in.

I may look that one up.

I think I need your help identifying not-incredibly-stupid anime to watch in my spare time, I feel like I'm missing out what with all the references you drop in our conversations.

Does Raven have an Anime dedicated thread? I'd be up for discussing some anime around here. I'm pretty picky when it comes to the series I have watched and liked though. I'm a very dedicated CLAMP fanboi just for starters. CardCaptor Sakura, Tsubasa Chronicle, Chobits, etc. Trigun was a non-CLAMP series I liked quite and there are a few more.
