    I’m interested to know how they handled the whole thought thing in the translated version. In the Japanese one there are multiple occurrences when Haruhi answers to Kyon’s thoughts without him saying anything aloud, though by the writing it’s also a bit dubious as to whether he really did say something or not.

    I think it was because Tanigawa was originally planning on making Kyon an esper or something?

    Speaking of Haruhi, I wonder when that last volume will come out… It does sound that by the success Yen Press is getting that it will/should continue though – that’s great.

Welcome To Ranobe Cafe!

This marks the english speaking world's first dedicated light novel blog, bringing you news and views from the english perspective on light novels. We are more than just a blog about light novels though, we also stand in awe of the many other literary works crossing over to the West from Japan. So expect to also see articles that dabble from time to time in Cell Phone Novels and Japanese Sci-Fi works, to mention a few.

So come all you light novel enthusiasts! Come one and all! We may be a niche, and may represent one of the smallest markets in these economically troubled times, but we are also one of the most dedicated! So let us come together and support the industry we love and hold so dearly!
