It's been suggested by a few of our Japanese speaking forumites that the new manga isn't terribly succesful. Kyon apparently is more of a cheap knock-off character and the manga isn't terribly succesful in replicating the "feel" of the novel. Given the choice between having people working on the novel, or the manga... I'd prefer to see the novel translated. Besides, there's more groups out there on the 'net that translate manga... people who are willing to translate novels are rather few and far between.

Unless of course we have some novel translators who just aren't feeling up to the task of tackling a full novel ^^

It's not that the manga is bad, but the original novel contained detailed literatures and the anime boasts superior art qualities, while the manga, in comparison, doesn't seem to have a lot to offer in return: the story isn't as detailed as the original novel, nor is the visual presentation as polished as the anime. The anime even managed to replicate the novel character designs down to a tee, while the manga took some liberties (especially for Kyon's design).

To put it in simpler words, as a media format used to deliver the story of "Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu", the manga (currently) just doesn't have the same impact value that the novels and anime have.

But, if you're simply interested in reading a manga adaptation/version of Suzumiya Haruhi and nothing else, then for what it's worth, the manga itself is actually very nicely done.

Exactly if you are a true fan of Suzumiya Haruhi, you'll get everything : novel, manga and anime (and live action series that would be just totally weird if they ever do a live action Suzumiya Haruhi )

Official release date of the 8th volume of Suzumiya Haruhi novel is 1/5/2006, but practically it has been already available in 28/4/2006 due to the holiday season in Japan. Of course I got it.

Yeah I know, its not the first time a novel or a manga is available before its officialy released (LOL this sentence didn't make any sense well, you know what I mean >.< )

I can't wait to get my hands on it

The manga wasn't that bad. It is unforturnate that the mangaka cut some major scenes out though (especially at the beginning- how Kyon and Haruhi met). Other than that, the manga is fine on its own.

If you want the novel illustration level of quality in a manga. That is so hard I don't even know if it is possible(especially when you compared the manga to the first few volumes. The illustrator slacked off for the later volumes XD ).

Just read the magazine. No need to wait for the manga .

Hmmm how do you guys handle your novels?

I just bought volume 2 to 7, 1 was out of stock and i have already placed an order. i also pre ordered vol 8.

So i read chapter 1 of vol 2 and I find myself handling really carefully, now im disturbed that the cover is a little warped and some corners dented lol.

I'm thinking of buying another set, which i will not be reading, just for keeping/collection.

I've also ordered the chinese versions 1 - 5, which i won't be treating with extreme care, I'm just going to read them like a normal book.

I usually don't treat books with much care, but its guess my haruhist fanatism.

Does anyone know a good place to buy the novels online? Preferably somewhere that accepts paypal.

I ordered volume one from yesasia but they said they were out of stock and that it didn't look like they were getting any in anytime soon.

I got all mine from amazon.co.jp - though they run higher than necessary on shipping so I try to buy a bunch of books at once when I order from them.

I've given up on yesasia .... out of five orders I've placed with them, they failed to actually have stock on all but one order. Of course, they'd wait for a month before they'd tell me so I'd have lost that time for looking elsewhere.

Places that accept paypal are harder to find.... in fact, looking through my "preferred dealer list" not one does. They all take debit cards or "visabuxx cards" though (even the ones that claim to only take credit cards).

@RiXeD: not yet, but I imagine there will be soon given the popularity of the anime and the novels.

well.. you might have wonderful results ....
All I can say is if they said that.. I might start looking elsewhere and cancel it if you can place an order with someone who has it *on hand* (ship <24hrs).

Brick and mortar stores might have 1 or 2 volumes but getting a set is now difficult.

Don't worry about warped covers and such, my Chinese copy of Volume 5 is already quite well-worn despite the fact that I owned it for less than 2 weeks. It's just how the books are printed. What is important is the content of the novels, IMO.

Speaking of Volume 5,

That should be:
