The Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya Novel Excerpt Coming 3 Years Late

Posted on: February 24, 2010


"Sorry I'm so late!"

The part of the Internet still devoted to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya exploded today at news from The Sneaker magazine (home of Trinity Blood and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya), which declares that an excerpt of the next Haruhi novel will appear in the April issue of the magazine after a long, long hiatus. The Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya (Suzumiya Haruhi no Kyougaku) was originally scheduled for a June 2007 release, but has become one of the more infamously delayed works in otaku culture.

Since we’re sneaking up on the third anniversary of the delay announcement, a lot of fans have taken a cautious stance. As Moon Phase points out, an excerpt of the final Full Metal Panic! novel was released by Dragon magazine back in its January 2009 issue, and there has been no sign of the book since. The existence of an excerpt doesn’t necessarily mean that the book is done; it just means the excerpt is done.

Maybe I’m just being bitter, though – after all, three years is plenty of time to write one book, right? Right?

Bring on The Suprise!
It has definitely been too long. 3 years since the Dissociation came out in April, and the book will take longer after that to come out.
Especially when number 9 was such a cliffhanger and *spoiler alert for anyone that has only seen the anime* introduced the alternate worlds, but didnt explain them at all.
I wanna see the slider finally revealed, and after waiting so long, it had better be in a spectacular fashion!

I guess I don’t feel as impatient since I only recently discovered the Haruhi phenomenon in the last 3 years. And I finished reading the novels last year. This is definitely a surprise.

3 years? I guess I shouldn’t mention /The Wheel of Time/, then…
