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…

The Haruhi Susumiya series has been a big name in the anime community since the anime premiered way back in 2006. It managed to find a large audience and influence otaku culture in a massive way, and the impact it left is still highly noticeable.

I personally find the manga above the anime, but beneath the original light novels, and let me explain why.

Firstly, unlike the anime, we didn't have to wait 3 years just to get 8 episodes of the same exact gimmick. Fans of the series know exactly what I'm talking about, and I won't say any more for the sake of spoilers. read more

“The Melancholy of Suzumiya ” is a series well known in the community, once a flagship series, due to it’s crazy plot and characters. As far as the manga goes, it fell short of expectations. Before anyone gets upset by this (as I’m sure some will), It is easy to appreciate the wacky themes of Suzumiya and the challenging concepts that are played around with. I really do think the idea is good but the task too big for the author. “The Melancholy of Suzumiya ” is littered with random events and occurrences with a handful of useful arcs within. This manga simply has read more

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 digress). 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
