Just 6 days and 19 hours more to go! I can barely wait now that we're this close to release date

Quoted so the images can be in this page too

Eep~! Nice to see that the final chapter is ALMOST around the corner.

Just managed to pick up the most-recent English-translated hardcover not long ago.

(I've had them in .pdf in English for some time)

I have been saying this for four years, but there's no indication that these are the final books of the series. They'd be marketing them as such if they were.

There is no confirmation that these are the last novels. Likely by the end of the weekend we shall have the first spoilers to enable us to know that these are not the last of the series. Like Kaisos said, it'd be over everywhere if these were the last ones.

Also I'm curious since we're close to the release date and shipments should be going out. Was the book you picked up Disappearance or Rampage as the latter is being shipped to retailers now.

Edit: Not worth a double-post, so here's the official cover for volume 14 of the manga. It'll be released one day after Surprise's LE set (May 26th, 2011):

I regret not pre-ordering Astonishment just for the Rainy Day sidestory, even if I can't read Japanese well yet...
Is it too late?

No, it's still available from Amazon Japan, CD Japan, HMV, bk1, and likely a Kinokuniya if there is one nearby. All of those places will ship internationally from Japan.

Keep in mind though that if you order from AmazonJP to the USA, it will be almost $60 total, the shipping alone is about $39. I don't know how much it costs to other countries though.

Kadokawa is really pushing the marketing on the next novels! First was the trailer through Akiba for 8 days combined with an ad in the Yomuri morning newspaper and an ad at the Akiba Japan Rail station and pamphlets being handed out on 1/29. Next was a CM followed by bookstore ads (even a promotional video). Then advertisements on race cars and news reports of the record-breaking first pressing came out. Now, through this month and the beginning of next month, most (if not all) of the Kadokawa Group Publishing periodicals will have a feature about Haruhi in it. Here's the list:
  1. Newtype June Edition- Haruhi Racing feature
  2. Comptiqs June Edition - Attached Haruhi tumbler inserts (Haruhi/Mikuru/Nagato and one of Volume 11's cover girl) and Nagato pinup drawn by Lucky Star's Kagami Yoshimizu

  4. Shounen Ace July Edition[/i] - Special The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya comics and library alternative cover

  6. KeroKero Ace July Edition- A collaboration feature with Haruhi and Animal's Thicket
  7. Gundum Ace July Edition- Special Haruhi cover
  8. Only Traveler June Edition- Special Haruhi cover and a mini feature
  9. Nyantype July Edition- Special booklet about the whole Haruhi Suzumiya series.
  10. CIEL July Edition- Special Kyon and Koizumi cover with a Haruhi chapstick included
  11. Young Ace July Edition- Special reversible The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya shitajiki

And on the other side of the planet Little, Brown Inc. (via Hachette Book Group) have shipped their copies of The Rampage of Haruhi Suzumiya to retailers and Amazon is sending their copies out now. Keep in contact with your preferred retailer to see when they'll be sending theirs out.

Eh, sorry if this is a stupid question, but I haven't been keeping up with news at all.

Is this a novel version of the Rainy Day episode at the end of the first anime season, or something else entirely?

The short story bundled with the Limited Edition set of The Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya (First) (Latter) (volumes 10 and 11) is entitled Rainy Day and will be released next week.

The episode released in 2006 was entitled Someday in the Rain and was originally an anime-only story before being printed in the August 2006 edition of The Sneaker. It, along with the two Haruhi Theatre Acts have not been compiled into a novel.

Gaku Tsugano is the only mangaka to draw this version of the manga.

Ah, that's news to me. So Someday in the Rain is now officially novel-canon then? (I always believed it was canon, it's just that this is the first time the author put the story to print.)

Added emphasis and brackets to make point clearer.

No, Rainy Day is a new short story. It features Kyon and Volume 11 cover girl.

I know that. I was referring to the detail that Someday in the Rain was published in story form in the Sneaker.

Hmm, that's odd. AFAIK, Someday in the Rain was rather unique in that it had scenes where Kyon wasn't explicitly present, and therefore would've been strange in a first-person perspective story. I figured that was reason enough for it to remain anime-only, but I guess I was wrong.
