Kyon is your ordinary high school freshman who has long given up on his childhood dreams of encountering the fantastic and supernatural…or so he thought. From the very first day of school, his classmate–the beautiful but eccentric Haruhi Suzumiya–makes it very clear that her only desire is to meet aliens, time travelers, and psychics! A chance conversation between the two inspires Haruhi to form the SOS Brigade, a school club created for the sole purpose of getting these supernatural beings together. The initial members consist of the mute bookworm Yuki Nagato, the timid but voluptuous Mikuru Asahina, and the polite and ever-smiling Itsuki Koizumi. By the end of this first volume, Kyon quickly finds out that these seemingly “helpless victims” of Haruhi’s are actually members of secret organizations–both futuristic and alien–keeping watch over Haruhi as she is the pinnacle of some major calamity on the horizon…

I have said numerous times that Haruhi is the greatest anime/light novel series ever, so I decided to read the manga. Going in, I expected copious amounts of Adaptation Decay ( and I was most certainly right. However, while most fans find that the re-ordering of events ruins the storyline or makes it impossible to read, that is the precise reason why I decided to read it. And not only that, but the amount of filler. And not just any kind of filler, but well-written, enjoyable filler, not like that Naruto crap that I wish never happened (except for the one with Mizuki, but I read more

It's a hard thing talking about Haruhi Suzumiya since there are just so many versions of it that I could possibly not know which is the more definitive way to go. People will probably yell at me telling me to read the light novels, but unfortunately those are not available for me to read and I have to settle with what I can get my hands on...which is quite clearly the manga. From a clearly deductive standpoint, I've heard people say that the light novels and anime are quite similar. Having watched the anime and read the manga, the events themselves were spot on exact read more

NOTE: I am a huge Haruhi fan,and i read the first novel before reading the first manga. And... MINER SPOILERS AHEAD

Ok.If you looked at my ratings you'd probably think "10,3,10,3,overall...3?? but Haruhi should be rated 10!!! Well i'm reviewing the manga,not the series overall.

I was stoked to buy this after reading the novel,but then was painfully dissapointed.The art is trash compared to Itoh-senseis' art.She should've just done the art for the whole manga.The way the events roll out in the manga is completely different from the manga (for example,mikuru doesn't even appear until asakura dies...WTF) Even the anime didn't screw up when the events appear.I read more

Story about a girl whose imaginativeness reshapes the world around her. 
reportRecommended by Gegenschein
Both feature weird clubs. Also, there are lots of similarities between Kyon from Haruhi and Kodaka from Haganai, as they are both tsukkomi-type characters.

Both Involve a girl that changes their life 
reportRecommended by lilkk4321
Both feature a girl who aspire to go as high as possible, and both are not normal, and have a boy they like by their side.

Haruhi has supernatural powers, and can change the world on her whim.
Medaka changes people with her superhuman abilities.
In short, the 2 of them "can do everything". 
reportRecommended by Dunkjoe
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is a fantastic slice of life anime series just like lucky star. It has some great comedy moments to it, but also a great story line.
reportRecommended by kira_is_justice
They are really similar, as they're both school comedies with a sci-fi twist and almost the same story: a normal guy suddenly meets a weird girl who is a transferred student at his school; he gets involved in paranormal activities; he's forced to join a school club about aliens and other supernatural things.
