There are two types of characters that are parallel of each other. First, you have the main character that seems to be taking a lot of screen time. However, they can sometimes be extremely annoying, and you wish that you can really dismember every single part of their body (or maybe just the head). The second type is the side members, the anime characters that no one remembers after a season of new anime about harems, mecha and queer bacteria floating around.
However, the character that I am going to introduce is one that bores the legacy. She breaks the monotony of stereotypes in the fickle world of anime where we worship a character for a swift moment before they disappear into the world of emptiness. She is a side character that hardly appears for more than 5% of the show, but has brought about a huge fanbase with the two special phrases she used in the anime series. She is the queen of lol, Tsuruya-sama.
If you are worried about fanboy behavior, please take a step back, eat a hamster chef and then relax.
A minor character from the wildly popular “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya“, Tsuruya’s given name is unknown. She is clearly distinct with her long green hair flowing down her shoulders, an extended left canine that gave her the affectionate nickname of Fang-tan and her rather megas-strange speaking behavior.
Tsuruya is a very energetic and happy schoolgirl who is generous and kind. In the novel, she is known to be in a very wealthy family, but she can take things too far when surrounding issues made her carried away. Her ability to do huge bursts of laughter when there is something even slightly amusing makes her the most LOL-tan ever in the history of anime. She is a close friend of Mikuru, even though Tsuruya’s pranks know no bounds. That said, her laughter knows no bounds as well.
Her distinct accent
A very important component of Tsuruya’s character is the one single time period where she exhibits in one of the most fashionable meido uniforms. The whole image of the beautiful goddess going Mega-good and nyoro while speaking in that rapid-fire machine gun moonspeak is perhaps one of the highlights of the show, and the reason why T.H.A.T Anime Blog is created. Do look at the youtube video to know why that accent is so fascinating.
It is perhaps a queer thing to most people reading this. How can a character that is merely talking fast be so attractive? It is perhaps the whole package of her dynamic behavior when speaking, enthusiasm at anything to poke fun at people, her beautiful flowing hair while she speaks and the very fact that nyoro and megas (both attractive words) are used while all that is happening at the same time.
The Churuya comics
Anyone that has some knowledge of anime should really come into contact with the famous doujins of Churuya. The comic series make a joke out of “megas” and “nyoro~n”. It’s just a testament of how great Tsuruya has been in order to spawn off such a random series of 4komas that is pretty much known by most who read anime blogs for the past year.
Everyone knows laughter is infectious and it does not get any better with the power of our Tsuruya laughing every single time when Mikuru is in a somewhat awkward position. I remember that her ability to laugh randomly when Mikuru is saying some stupid verse created by Haruhi in the film makes me laugh so hard, I nearly fell off my chair. Her charming left canine that appears predominately when she starts laughing is particularly moe~, and this is the reason why that image of her has not escaped my mind after Haruhi Suzumiya ended for so long.
Tsuruya, with her energetic beauty exhibited in all of her glory is one of the side characters that cannot be easily forgotten in what was a hit in 2006. With the anticipation rising among Kyoto animation fans for the 2nd season of Haruhi Suzumiya, it’s time to wait for the goddess of nyoro and embrace her next coming!
