That's bulll, we don't even know for certain what year the series takes place in.

Most people theorize it takes place in 2010, but the level of technology used suggests '04-'05 to me.

@Zantetsuken:

1. Do not trust TV tropes; while it is fun and a form of intercrack, it, like the other wiki, can be edited by anyone.

2. There is no set time for anything in the series; there's been speculation of this series occuring in 2001, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2010, but nothing has actually been confirmed yet (I say it takes place in 2009, but I digress).

I'm guessing you read this on the WMG page for this series on TV tropes, on which Speculation Hell breaks loose. Do not take any of these theories as fact, for most of them (the one's that aren't as big as the others especially) are a load of bollocks.

We are given only two clues about the precise year--First is a reference to it being near the beginning of the 21st century (yeah really vague), and second is the fact that Valentine's Day falls on a Monday in "The Intrigues of Haruhi Suzumiya" (the seventh book). Direct references to the year are deliberately left out--such as in Disappearances, where Kyon goes back in time, he only describes the date as "July 7th, three years ago" instead of the actual number of the year whether in the international Gregorian calendar or in the Japanese regnal years in which it is year X of the current emperor's reign.

Nope, I read it on the character sheet page. Anyway how old is he? 16-ish?

I don't think they directly reference his age, but I think he was about 15 in Melancholy.

And ijuinkun: There was one other reference: The day after the Golden Week Holiday was Wednesday (Melancholy)

There's also the less precise "reference" of December 17th through 20th being across four school days.

Also, the next year Valentine's day is on Monday. For this happens, the previous December 17th must be on Friday... Yeah.

It was? Anyway, I was pointing that tha dates contradict thenself, so estimating the year is impossible.

(I also have mistook the dates. The point is stil the same, however)

Maybe Haruhi (or Kyon) is subconciously changing the years?

Or perhaps their calendar works differently than ours. Our calendar is too systematic for Haruhi.

If the two dates had been seperated by Endless Eight we could imagine that the ending year could well be several thousands of years later and thus the day would be shifted...but alas, it isn't. Haruhi just is god, so we have to deal with it....also the books were written in different years to I imagine the author used a different calander each time.

Between this and the Valentine's Day clue, it shouldn't be hard to mathematically determine what year the anime takes place in... or at least round it down to one of two possibilities.

People have done this, and the dates just don't match up with the day after Golden Week being on a Wednesday the previous year.

I think it's pretty clear that the year is being intentionally obscured.

Thanks for the info.

Probably a good idea until the novels are completed, since you'd want the date to make sense given the 'real world' date when the final novel comes out. Personally, I would like to see a concrete date slapped on at that point, though.

Yuki-chan, like Haruhi-chan, it is not cannon. It is just a fun spin-off.

Aw nutz!!! Oh well at least it's within the alternate universe of Huruhi.

Probably for Yuki x Kyon fans. He's also not sarcastic there...hmm...
