Eeeh?! When has Haruhi ever apologized for anything she's done? What was the author thinking!

If anything, it should be Asahina. Preferably in a bunny outfit... or a Santa outfit... or... or...

Hahaha XDDD I didn't start reading the novels yet, but I think that'd be overdoing it even for the real loyal fans XD

Damn.

Well that's plenty of time nevertheless. I have all the novels but I've only read two of them so far... At least I can take my time.
I only have the first four...so that means I need to get the rest and read them fast.

But you know, when it's all said and done, it makes me wonder. Why would Nagaru Tanigawa, the author, put off his most successful franchise and work on relatively lower grade manga? I mean it makes no sense. Just after the Disappaerance movie was a smash hit and the Blu-rays are selling like hot cakes, now would be the perfect time to release the novel(s). Releasing it 4 months from now is not really a good business decision, in my opinion.

And what's with the two-volume set? Everything sounds a bit... off to me.

If it's postponed again, I swear to god, then imma turn Haruhi on Nagaru :



Pfft...I'm re-reading the first 9 novels to refresh my memory. If you want 'em, check here

i would see it if i were you. it is amazing, definitely worth the watch.

Oh god yes it is amazing.

Also, Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya will be Endless Eight, over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

Allow me to summarize. We are stuck in an infinite time loop. We are stuck in an infinite time loop. We are stuck in an inf—

Wait. They're releasing Surprise in 13 countries, but the US barely has what, four novels out? I realize the world doesn't revolve around us, but man, are the US license holders ever going to get around to translating the rest over here? I'd just import them, but... ugh... so many kanji, even knowing Mandarin, it just makes it harder. >.<

Edit: Yes, this post is whiny. Yes, I know I should be happy anyone is even bothering to release them over here. No, I realize they don't do this for free, nor am I somehow "entitled" to these books. No, I don't feel like being flamed for expressing my thoughts on this matter.

Edit^2: Oh, I forgot to say: I think it's awesome it'll be released translated in 13 other countries! Ah.. I hope the US is one of them, it would mean I could actually be caught up, albeit missing half the story. \o/
