Now, although Haruka is arguably what drags most people into watching the show, I find that I like her less and less ever since the Kaoru Arc aired. It showed that in the end, Haruka is just the nympho sex-loving snobbish School Idol that we see over and over again in countless shows. After all, Shizuka Itou, the seiyuu for Haruka, is well-known to have voiced many school idols, amongst which include the likes of Hinagiku from Hayate no Gotoku. Furthermore, she’s a good voice actress, able to voice a huge range of different voices nicely like Lee Lenalee to Carmel Wilhemina, from Hanna-Justina Marseille to Kunogi Himawari.
Well, that doesn’t explain why the show seems to adore Morishima ‘Lovely’ Haruka. Perhaps it’s the audience. Perhaps the audience just loves its fanservice, to the extent that they watch arcs simply because Haruka shows up in them.
In conclusion, I still don’t like Haruka.
