Haruhi's New Light Novel to Be Previewed in The Sneaker
posted on by Egan Loo
The April issue of Kadokawa Shoten's The Sneaker magazine is announcing on Friday that the next issue will publish an excerpt of Nagaru Tanigawa and Noizi Ito's Suzumiya Haruhi no Kyōgaku (The Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya) light novel on April 30. When it is published, this 10th Haruhi Suzumiya light novel volume will be the first new one in three years.
The last volume in the series was Suzumiya Haruhi no Bunretsu, which shipped in 2007. The light novels inspired two television anime seasons, a film, two net anime series, and several manga adaptations.
Little, Brown Young Readers is publishing the third Haruhi Suzumiya light novel volume in North America this July. Bandai Entertainment released the initial run of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya anime series in North America, and it posted a video promoting "the second season DVDs" last month. Yen Press is publishing both Gaku Tsugano's main manga adaptation and Puyo's The Melancholy of Suzumiya-Haruhi-Chan (Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yūutsu) "official gag manga." The anime film adaptation of the fourth light novel, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, film opened in Japan just this month. The Day of Sagittarius III game seen in the light novels and anime was actually produced and officially released for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch mobile devices in English.
