Yurihi: “I’m Not Interested in Any Ordinary Anime”


Angel Beats heroine Yurihi‘s overwhelming similarity to a certain monomaniac schoolgirl now extends past simple character design and into some truly unfortunate “coincidence” courtesy of Newtype:


The text above “Newtype” reads “I’m not interested in any ordinary anime,” a clear reference to Haruhi’s catchphrase. Supposedly the text is there by coincidence rather than design.

Whatever the actual depth of similarity, the fact that nobody can shut up about it is probably a reasonable indication that Yurihi’s design should never have been accepted.
