The Haruhi Suzumiya series of Japanese light novels is written by Nagaru Tanigawa with accompanying illustrations drawn by Noizi Ito. The series centers on the eponymous high school girl Haruhi Suzumiya, her strange antics, and her friends in a club she forms called the SOS Brigade.
Reviewed in the United States on January 11, 2019 I came to the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise through the anime, and picked up the book that started it all on a whim. This book is a delight, a well-paced, witty, charming light novel about a strange girl, her stranger friends, and the one normal person in her life.
Another amazing book in the Haruhi series, it's cap titivating and doesn't let you go. The characterization built around the new additions along with increased dynamics of your favorite characters. I read the second half in one sitting because i just couldn't put the book down!Description Meet Haruhi — a cute, determined girl, starting high school in a city where nothing exciting happens and absolutely no one understands her. Meet Kyon — the sarcastic guy who sits in front of Haruhi in homeroom and the only boy Haruhi has ever opened up to. His fate is now tied to hers.First, a little housekeeping-the eleven Haruhi Suzumiya light novels were written by Nagaru Tanigawa that had English translations available from 2009 through 2013. I have read the entire series in 2014, and own physicals to books 1-8 and digital formats for the final three.
Haruhi is the bossy and beautiful leader of the SOS Brigade, a club comprised of her high school’s most extraordinary (and strangest) students. On a typical day, the SOS Brigade must struggle to keep Haruhi happy and occupied because, unbeknownst to her, Haruhi has the power to destroy the world.Read More
To be honest, I had been pretty disappointed in the haruhi light novels up until now. This latest instalment however, proves to be a brilliant addition to the series. I started watching the haruhi suzumiya anime round about the time it came out. It was new, hilarious and told a great story in it's 14 episode run.Read More

Anyways, the Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya is the latest light novel. The author is on hiatus (last from what I heard), and so we may or may not get another light novel. Either way, the Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya ends off in a satisfactory ending, but not necessarily a complete one.Read More

Tanabata has significance in the Haruhi saga as being the day 3 years prior to entering high school that Haruhi re-created the world and granted life to mysterious life forms -- Aliens, Time-Travelers, ESPers, etc. -- by writing an alien language inscription on a sports field. Kyon was inadvertently a part of this event too. Some might argue that it is the day Haruhi was granted her god powers.Read More
The light novel series The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, featuring a character named Haruhi who is a god unawares and her search for novelty, has a number of anomalies and unclear overarching plot.I argue that these anomalies can be resolved, and greater literary depth achieved, by interpreting the first-person protagonist Kyon as the actual unaware god.Read More

Haruhi was adapted from a series of Light Novels, light novels are really the Japanese equivalent to the medium Feval usually wrote in. As a viewer though I've only watched Haruhi (and watched it Dubbed) while Feval I've mostly only read. Haruhi is often viewed as the trend setter in how Meta Anime has been ever since. However to my observations the followers of Haruhi have all been Meta in.Read More
