I just finished reading Snow Moutain Syndrome.

I have a question I don't understand and would like to hear people's opinions.

Meh, my thoughts on it . . . spoilers for volumes 6 and 7!

Spoiler:


So basically, I think it's not that Mikuru's acting stupid, but that Itsuki, Yuki, and Kyon are acting too smart. Itsuki is well-informed by a shadowy organization with contacts and sources everywhere (as revelations show in volumes 7 and 8), and has his own powers to back it up (besides his closed-space powers, I think there's enough evidence to prove he has other psychic abilities related to Haruhi). And Yuki, we all know she's capable of a ton of stuff. Kyon, while lacking abilities, is not without resources, as he can ask either Itsuki or Yuki for explanations as to the situation. Mikuru, on the other hand, is afraid of asking those two, and is unable to get a response from her own superiors.

Besides, if it weren't for Yuki and Itsuki leading him around, Kyon would probably be just as lost as Mikuru...

>シリーズ最新作「涼宮ハルヒの分裂」3月31日発売

( ・ω・ )ホホゥー

Seems like we're finally going to get a new Haruhi novel volume soon. But it seems that the volume title won't be 涼宮ハルヒの奔走, as rumored earlier, but 涼宮ハルヒの分裂 (Suzumiya Haruhi no Bunretsu) (Suzumiya Haruhi's Break Up/Division) instead.

The novel appears to be scheduled for a March 31st release.
*looks at my vol.8 colophon*
(Heisei 18 (2006) May 1st, First print published)
I can't be believe it has almost been a year since the last volume.

Excellent, it's good to finally have that info down. New title sounds dramatic, I hope it doesn't mean that the novels will be wrapping up soon (like, if it was the SOS Brigade that broke up...)--it seemed to me like they're just starting to get interesting with all the development in volume 7, but I retain the fear that Tanigawa could decide not to flesh out every detail of the whole fictional universe of the novels and get tired of writing more Haruhi-related stories... Well, just another month or so until we see how things look as far as that's concerned, then.

Edit: Speculation:

The way I see it, this novel was called both Honsou and Bunretsu, right? So both of those should apply to it, unless they're not as concentric to the plot as they should be (the Melancholy & Disappearance & Intrigues certainly were, IMO). I Google'd Honsou (not the best translator, I admit, especially when it could use different kanji, or what have you ...) and the first result stated, "Honsou” means to run around everywhere or to scramble for, so that things will turn out all right." Perhaps something happens which splits up something, and then it's necessary to run around trying to fix it? The way I read "honsou" as it's described (specifically, the "run around everywhere" part), I'd also be tempted to speculate that multiple, perhaps somewhat isolated occurrences cause that thing to be split up in many different ways. Thus my theory is: different issues involving different SOS brigade members occur around the same time, probably many at once at least in part, and Kyon & Haruhi (unless she's also affected? but usually they would have a plot arc just centered around her, I'd imagine, if they were to have one at all... where by "they" I just mean Tanigawa of course) have to run around and try to resolve the issues (Haruhi not necessarily knowing all of what's going on).

Yay! I wonder if it'll be a new arc... short stories are OK, but I would like to see more plot advancement.

Waiting for the translation will feel like an eternity (winks @ Baka-Tsuki) .

EDIT: I've been thinking, what is the use for the japanese word Bunretsu; physical division? Or maybe the SOS-dan will break up!

Even better; Haruhi becomes two Haruhis! One tsun-tsun and one dere-dere!

There weren't any new Haruhi short-stories being serialized on The Sneaker as of late, and considering the series track record, I'd say chances are good that Bunretsu will be a single long-story volume similar to Inbou (vol.7).

All the suggestion you mentioned have all been suggested by speculating Japanese fans as well. Right now, possible implications of Bunretsu include:
1. SOS-dan splitting
2. Haruhi splitting into two persons (lol)
3. The volume itself splitting into two books (rofl)

I don't know... for a 'split' that I thought of has already happened, and Kyon's still alright, more or less...

"Suzumiya Haruhi's newest issue will consist of two volumes, with volume 9 "Suzumiya Haruhi no Bunretsu" (bunretsu = separation/division) going on sale April 1st, while volume 10 "Suzumiya Haruhi no Kyougaku" (kyougaku = surprise/shock) is also expected to be released immediately after."

Sounds interesting, but why April 1st of all days? ^^;

You know, I've always preferred the way she's drawn in the show... by far.

By the way, notice her hair's a bit longer than normal on this cover?

Maybe Kyon accidentally kissed Tsuruya-san on the forehead? ^_^

Also, MOON PHASE was just updated again with some general spoilers from vol.9 (I didn't want to read it myself, but my eyes just landed on them when the page loaded, damn it). I'll put them here, but don't read unless you don't mind being spoiled.

She cut it back in September. Hair grows quite a bit in six months

If those spoilers end up being true, then... Wow. That answers a big question.

Man, from the titles it seems like the series is reaching a major point which could signify the beginning of the end (probably not the end itself I'd guess, right? last volume being "Surprise/Shock" seems melodramatic). Of course that could be completely incorrect but don't say if it is because I don't want to read that spoiler for volume 9. And on that note:

Guess it's time to stop hanging out on IRC as I don't want to read that spoiler for volume 9.

Anyway, in spite of heightening my fears that Suzumiya Haruhi novels won't be continuing on in completely expected directions for the next three decades with these titles, this announcement just really gave me a jolt of excitement. Hmm, I wonder if season 2 could include these novels? Since the two main arcs besides Melancholy (Disappearance & Intrigues) aren't as Haruhi-centric as these two upcoming ones seem (at first glance)... Nah, probably impossible due to the tight release interval and the background necessary. ...And I probably shouldn't speculate on the anime in the novel thread (why do I find myself speculating on one in the other's thread?).

Season 2 will be based around Volume 4 and Season 3 will be based around Volume 7. I'm calling it now.

No more anime speculation from me in the novel thread. *Zips mouth*
