The manga centers on the titular Sarara Urushiha, who is a beautiful, popular, smart, athletic girl who constantly receives romantic confessions. As a result, all romance has lost its luster for her. One day, annoyed at the constant attention she gets, she relieves her stress violently in an empty classroom, but her classmate witnesses her outburst.
Puyo worked on both the The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan four-panel gag manga based on Nagaru Tanigawa and Noizi Ito's The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya light novel series, as well as the The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan spinoff manga. The former launched in Monthly Shōnen Ace in July 2007 and ended last December. The latter launched in Young Ace in 2009, and ended in August 2016. Yen Press publishes both manga in English.
Both manga inspired anime adaptations. The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan anime shorts debuted in 2009, while the The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan television anime premiered in 2015.
The 12th and final volume of The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan also shipped on Thursday, and the volume features a short story by Tanigawa, as well as color illustrations by Ito and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya manga artist Gaku Tsugano.
