HaruKyon

(no subject)

December 22 is looking to be a great day. Why? Well, besides new Juushin Enbu, it looks like we'll find out who has licensed The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya for the US! I have to say, FINALLY. Now I have another series I want to collect on DVD! ^^ If only we can get word on whether Mushishi is licensed...

LOL, AnimeOnDVD is in the spirit of Haruhiism too. All the o's and s's are in red.

To celebrate, I shall be pimping the novels! You can find them translated here (some are still in progress). For the past few months I've been constantly checking for updates, and here is a list of my favorite non-animated stories. Seriously, there's more than enough material for a second season.

What you'll find in these stories: A LOT of time traveling. A lot of focus on Yuki. A lot of character development, especially for Kyon and Yuki. And I swear that Kyon and Haruhi are nearly flirting at one point in Volume 4. XD What's also interesting is that you can spot a couple of scenes from Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody and Snow Mountain Syndrome in the anime's ending animation. Now I REALLY want there to be a second season~
