on it also. Haruhi is adorable not to mention Tamaki
is hilarious. Then there is the loli boy XD
stereotypes are fun.
Also has anyone heard of Crimson Hero? it follows a
rather boyish girl who is trying to restart the girls
volleyball team at her school.

though I must say its not flat out but the Haruhi does
comment "I guess Im sorta bent that way" and other
such yuri-suggestive comments. Also an all female
school thats out to get Haruhi to join their host
