Soujirou Izumi

Birthday: August 21 Blood type: O Sjir Izumi is Konata Izumi039s father an author who works at home. He always wears loose traditional Japanese clothing as his work clothes. He loves watching anime and playing video games which influenced his daughter039s interests. Sjir is quotalso a loliconquot. This appreciation for neoteny may be one factor that caused him to fall in love with Kanata whom he eventually married. He describes that he likes girls as men normally do but that he also appreciates younger ones. This means that this attraction is equal or possibly secondary meaning he does not have a preference for them so despite being a 039lolicon039 person with a lolita complex he would not be a pedophile. Throughout the show news reports and conversations indicate that young girls in the area are being approached by a strange man and a running joke in the show involves hints that Sjir is in fact the one doing it. The best example of this is the opening part of which involves Sjir spying on two schoolgirls from behind a lamppost. Sjir is very thin and has unshaven facial hair he has a mole under his left eye which his daughter inherited and has thick eyebrows. Additionally he is allergic to pollen and when he decided to wear goggles and masks as protection from it Konata sighed that quotNow you look weirder as wellquot. She also frequently reminds him quotPlease don039t do anything as to be taken away by the copsquot. Also he often forgets to lock the door when he is using the toilet which has left Yutaka with a tremendous shock. Sjir holds a deep love for his wife Kanata Izumi who passed away many years before. When Konata asks why Kanata chose to be with Sjir largely as a joke at his erotic personality039s expense Sjir points out that he and his wife simply looked past outwards appearances: Kanata loved Sjir despite his otaku tendencies and Sjir obviously did not mind that Kanata had an unusual physique and did not share his hobbies.
