In the 2000s, Haruhi Suzumiya and the whole SOS Brigade took the anime community by storm with their widespread success spanning all over the globe. For fans of the series, Dengeki Online’s announcement, heralding the latest release of Nagaru Tanigawa’s world-renowned masterpiece, is a treat to behold. After roughly nine and a half years, the 12th volume of the Haruhi Suzumiya light novels will be released on the 25th of November.
The Intuition of Haruhi Suzumiya (Suzumiya Haruhi no Chokkan) is hinted to feature the following:
- Random Numbers (Atezuppo Numbers) originally appeared on a 2013 artbook as part of the 10th-anniversary celebration of the light novel series so the SOS brigade kickstarted the New Year by visiting every single shrine in the city. Haruhi, Yuki, and Mikuru are dressed in kimonos prepared by Tsuruya, the honorary member of the SOS Brigade, the previous day. The mystery starts after Koizumi mutters a series of numbers and it is up to the gang to solve the meaning behind those.
- Seven Mysteries Overtime (Nana Fushigi Overtime) was published in 2018. This story revolves around a sudden guest who arrives in the club room early one summer day. The visitor says that Haruhi, who is absent from the room at that time, seems to be interested in the “Seven Mysteries of the School”.
- Tsuruya’s Challenge (Tsuruya-san no Chousen) – This is the newest story in the series. Tsuruya, who is away on a trip, sends an e-mail to the SOS Brigade’s direct address. Her challenge is attached and she invites recipients to take a shot at it.
With 20 million copies of the light novel series sold, several anime, manga, video game, and film adaptations made in respect to it, and best-selling merchandise, the Haruhi Suzumiya series became one of the landmark light novel adaptations of the new millennium. It is also known as one of the most successful series adapted by KyoAni. Some anime, such as Lucky Star and Animegataris, paid homage to the series by having a parody of it included in their respective series.
If you are a 2000s anime fan, you will never forget how the dance craze Hare Hare Yukai stymied bodies into a dancing frenzy. Surprisingly, it is not only otakus who, a decade ago, swayed to the tune of this song, but also inmates!
The aforementioned release date is only for Japan. The release dates for North America and elsewhere overseas are presently unknown. A work page and an official Twitter account have been created for fans to follow the continuation of the renowned series.
I am a casual anime enthusiast, and a contributor on a certain KanColle fan page. Thanks to the aforementioned franchise and a long time of playing the game, I became interested on stuff about WW2 and started watching and reading materials, including anime, related to it. Hence, I am now slowly becoming a gunji otaku. During my free time, sometimes I write short stories but I never managed to finish anyone of them. :V
