New Haruhi Suzumiya Novel On The Way!

Yup, you’ve heard me right. No, you’re not going blind. It’s coming. It’s OFFICIAL.

*pauses while readers begin to celebrate and scream in excitement*

Ok, so, now you want the proof and the specifics. Right?

Well, in the latest issue of “The Sneaker” (a Japanese Light Novel Magazine that Publishes Short Stories From Haruhi), author Nagaru Tanigawa has  been “described as being in the process of readying the novel.”

So wait, what does that mean? “Readying the novel”? Well, it could mean several things I guess.

A. He’s just started to write it.

B. He’s now editing it and getting it ready to be published.

As you might have known, rumors of a release for this 10th novel in the Haruhi Suzumiya series have been circulating since 2007. Many rumors surround why Tanigawa has taken such a long delay to get this newest novel out. What makes it worse, is that the previous 9th volume in the series was left on a “to be continued” ending.

But now, now we have OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION that the 10th book is indeed on the way. Now I guess we just have to wait.

Will this new novel end the series? Will it continue it? Can it live up to the expectations that have been placed on it?

Only time will tell.

    Cant wait for the second Volume to come out in America. I really loved the first novel. Somehow… it was much better than the anime.

    Its just a bit sad that it only comes out every half year, it seems..

    Good to hear. Also, just randomly found this site, and I’m impressed. Having only read light novels through Baka-Tsuki’s translations before Haruhi came out here, I never knew there were so many other light novels out in the US. Any recommendations?

    Never trust Sankaku.

    This is probably a more trustworthy article, since it was from a magazine and not just pulled out of someone’s ass, but still…

    Sankaku Complex is a horrible source. It’s like Wikipedia, but with more tits.
