Haruhi Suzumiya Model School Warns Against Trespassers

Light novel author's alma mater also filmed for music video by voice actress

Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: Hyōgo Kenritsu Nishinomiya Kita High School, the alma mater of the Haruhi Suzumiya light novels' author Nagaru Tanigawa and the real-life inspiration for the backgrounds in the anime adaptation, has posted a notice against trespassing on its website.

The notice warns people that trespassing onto school property is a crime. The school specifically acknowledges that taking photographs from outside the school is acceptable, but notes that there are people taking photographs inside the school grounds. From now on, the school will respond more severely to such incidents, including reporting to the police.

Directly below the trespassing warning is another notice about the music video that Minori Chihara, voice actress of the Haruhi Suzumiya character Nagato, filmed at the school itself. The school links directly to the "Yasashii Bōkyaku" music video that Bandai Visual's Lantis label began streaming in January:

The Kanai Sōja@rNote blog posted a photographic comparison between the high school and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya anime's backgrounds in 2006 (before the trespassing notice was posted).
