The Reappearances of Haruhi Suzumiya

The most popular girl in anime is brought to book

The Haruhi Suzumiya boom rolls ever on – always popular among costumers, regularly seen in para-para dancing, one of the biggest anime phenomena of recent years, and, now with an anime movie out on UK DVD, in the form of the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. Meanwhile, author Nagaru Tanigawa has already snagged himself an entry in the new Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, alongside the greats of global SF.

But if you can’t wait to see if there will be another anime film or TV series, the later episodes of Haruhi Suzumiya are already unfolding in book form. The movie released this week as The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya is actually based on the fourth book in the series, and books five and six are already out in English – something to bear in mind for the Christmas stocking of the fan who thinks he or she already has it all.

The Rampage of Haruhi Suzumiya book features prose versions of events that will already be familiar to viewers of season two, most notably the infamous Endless Eight sequence where the SOS Brigade are stuck in a time loop. Other stories in the same volume include “The Day of Sagittarius”, when the computer club challenges Haruhi and friends to a gaming tournament, and “Snowy Mountain Syndrome” when the club members are forced to take refuge on a wintry hillside in a deserted mansion… or is it…? this last and longest of the three stories in the book is a direct sequel to the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, taking place over the New Year’s season as the cast recover from the events covered in the movie.

And just out in English translation is the next book in the series, The Wavering of Haruhi Suzumiya, with a time-warp theme that flings the reader back in time to show new perspectives on previously seen stories. It’s a treasure trove for fans of the books and anime versions, as previous mysteries are answered with a series of odd twists and bonus information.

As to what happens next…you only have half a year to wait until the next book, The Intrigues of Haruhi Suzumiya. And no time like the present to buy the DVD. We’re just saying…
