Cool, kind, laid back and very supportive friend and mentor(just like Itsuki introduced Kyon to Haruhi case Viktor though Yuri about confidence)of main protagonist(with homosexual undertones).

I suppose it's time to crown the victor - and I'll have to capitalize on that wordplay by giving the point to Kocurek's suggestion.

Don't think I didn't notice you changing your candidate, Destroyer :P. And it's a shame, too - I was going to give this round to Tomoya's dad simply because his outward demeanor and appearance are such a great fit for Koizumi. Seta just doesn't quite pull if off for me (although I haven't seen either series you guys drew your choices from, so I might not have the most accurate impression).

Please lead us on, Kocurek. I'm still hoping that we'll find someone else to join us and round out the playerbase one of these days...

My choice is Hajime Ichinose from Gatchaman Crowds and Gatchaman Crowds Insight.
Image
In dictionary photo of Hajime is right next to the word eccentric.She is an unusual high school student with peculiar manner of speaking and passion for scissors.Ichinose has her own way of living and fixing problems(sometimes at her own expense)prioritizing making world a better place.

Elpeo Ple from ZZ Gundam

A young Newtype, who is quite a bit eccentric, always wanting to be with a certain character and playing with him, although she could be serious if the situation calls for it. She gets extremely jealous of other girls around him. She has a very eccentric habit of repeating her name, while running around, as well!

As soon as I read "eccentric" and "passion for scissors," I knew there could only be one suitable option for me to decide on:

Image
Mikoto Urabe from Mysterious Girlfriend X

Mikoto has some very odd ways of thinking about things and defies social conventions when it comes to her behavior - so much so that it's a nigh-impossible task for her boyfriend to figure her out. She's dead set on finding her own way of experiencing the world (and love/sexuality in particular) without being shackled to other people's standards.

Also, she permanently carries around a pair of scissors tucked into her panties. And she's not afraid to use them, either.

Win goes to Puru!
While scissors were compelling argument I just can't ignore eccentric girl with peculiar manner of speaking being part of secret initiative meant for combat.

All right, then.

I'm quite a bit of a Legend of the Galactic Heroes fan, so here's Yang Wenli.

Image

A genius tactician who never wanted to be in the army, he wanted to be a historian. But due to unfortunate circumstances, including having little money, he was forced to enroll in military school to study history. More unfortunate circumstances made him stay in the army. He has no ambitions, only wanting to retire with a pension and a fervent supporter of democracy.

OK, let's try one from an anime I watched a long time ago:

Image
Akito Tenkawa from Martian Successor Nadesico

Akito also had an unfortunate change in his career plans due to... circumstances. What he wants to become is a chef, and in a sense, he gets to do so on the spaceship Nadesico. However, he also becomes tangled up in an interstellar conflict and subsequently has to engage in mecha battles (which he does not enjoy).

You watched Nadesico?This is actually a suprise.

I'm going to be the odd one out and propose someone from newer show.
Youji Itami from Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
Image
Maybe not a tactical genius but definitely man that know his way around a gun with a knack for diplomatically fixing issues.Itami was also resistant towards idea of joining an army sice he's a man of no ambition that uses his job as means to support his hobby.Unfortunately for him circumstances forced him to join the ranks.

Both choices are so good, it was very hard for me to decide. But the slight edge goes to Akito, since he found someone to be with for the rest of his life, whereas Itami found someone, but not really loving that person, although still caring for her. So win goes to Bluespark. Very excellent choices, indeed.
