That's because Viz is trying to release the novel issue with the corresponding manga issue number, and that will cause a hindrance to the US market in general because the manga hasn't gotten that far yet.

Seriously, who cares about the manga?

Last time I checked it was nothing but anime on paper.

Now I will write awfully long post. Don't know if I should spoil some of things I write. But if any ones find something that he believe should be hidden from normal people, please tell me by sending a PM or just reply.

Mod Edit: Moved to the novel thread.

Spoiler for Anime/novel comparison:

Any way, now I am quite so sick of writing, so I stop here. If any one is interested I can continue some other day.

I apologies for my poor English, if you don't like it, don't read it. I am trying my best, using both iespell check and other dictionary's.

Oh? When was it you last checked, then, if you ever did?

I have three volumes of the manga here with me, and the events are actually linked more closely to the novel material than anime. Go check again, friend.

Agreed. Wilhelmina and Margery Daw did not even appear in the manga. It's somewhat of an adaptation of the movie.

I must say, it would be really disappointing if Viz drops the novel. I really don't want Shana to suffer the same fate as Kino no Tabi. It would be just unreasonable. The good thing is that we don't know if Viz is dropping it or not. We'll just wait till June.

Wrong. The manga is still continuing, and it has just reached Margery's appearance.

Can't remember the chapter number (don't have access to my home computer at the moment), but Margery just appeared at the very end of it.

Perhaps same could be said of all manga. But enough talk, have at you!

the manga is currently at chapter 30. Is right after the Shana and Magrey's first meeting. And generally when any light novel gets adapted to an manga and/or anime form It flows out like this in my opinion. Novel>manga>anime.
Anime adaption is generally plagued with either dives in animation quality or fillers. Novel and mangas have the benefits of being able to convey the story and plot better than an anime(however the cost of this is of course time, manga and novels are far too slow) and both excels at showing the readers the character's inner thoughts when compared to its respective anime form. However like all things in this world there are exceptions to this , because i have seen several manga adaptions fall short of their anime counterpart. although i still have not found an anime adaption of a light novel that has outdone the novel or whatever its based from.

And damn, i really can't wait for vol17 to arrive. I finally managed to finish all the shana novels so i m all giddy about it right now. I WANT more damn it!!!!!
ok ok gotta stop the rant............orz

As for vol16 one of my favorite part was when yuji came back to the city and as he strolled through the city he came across all the landmark and locations that are important to him and how he speak so nostalgically of them. The new Yuji talk and act just like the old yuji. except now there is an distinct air of confidence and power surrounding him. Yuji now is truly a man with a goal and the power to achieve it. And as for the whole confession thing yuji was a bit rough on the sides but it was the most logical thing for him to do in his situation. For all her willpower, shana sure as hell was falling for yuji's words during those moments. I suppose Shana should just give up trying to talk Yuji out of the "dark side"or even killing him because at the current rate it seems to me that yuji would have a higher chance of convincing Shana to his side. thus Yuji would Kill two birds with one stone; having his love interest plus Keeping and essentially controlling one of the few beings that are a threat to him is a brilliant and devious move(using Shana's love for him to make sure Alastor is of no threat to his plans) befitting of the new dark Yuji. And at the end of this you can't but feel sorry for Yoshida as she seriously got the end of the stick in this one(although that chinese flame-Haze during the earlier part of Vol 16 got "the end of the stick" quite literally XD), the word despair sums up Yoshida really well, almost made me cry("almost" because i was so giddy fantasizing what the new and improved Yuji is gonna do to Shana. lol must not think dirty thoughts........)

I say blame Noizi Ito!!
The longest gap between releases of novels for both Haruhi and SnS must be caused by something

I've never read any of the novels, but that's pretty much the same for me.

manga > movie >>> season two >>>>>>>>>>>>> season one

You know, I wish I could tell you, since I did buy the book, but I'm one of those noobs who don't know Japanese. Haha, kind of makes you wonder why I bought the book in the first place (motivation to study Japanese?)...

The last portion of the novel is called "Zoetrope", with Chapter 4 of it being a manga chapter illustrated by 笹倉綾人 (who did the Shana manga series). Chapter 2 of it seems to be a 4-koma.

That's about all I can say, and I can't even guarantee that it's right... I'm pretty useless... ><

Here's a couple of random images. Sorry about the quality. My camera is so old... it doesn't function well under low lighting.
