Our eighth book will be the English version (or its Japanese original!) of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, a light novel by Nagaru Tanigawa.
Meet Haruhi – a cute, determined girl, starting high school in a city where nothing exciting happens and absolutely no one understands her.
Meet Kyon - the sarcastic guy who sits behind Haruhi in homeroom and the only boy Haruhi has ever opened up to. His fate is now tied to hers.
Meet the S.O.S. Brigade – an after-school club organized by Haruhi with a mission to seek out the extraordinary. Oh, and their second mission? Keeping Haruhi happy . . . because even though she doesn’t know it, Haruhi has the power to destroy the universe. Seriously.
The phenomenon that took Japan by storm – with more than 4.5 million copies sold – is now available in the first-ever English edition.
