Well there are still a few characters missing. Arakawa for instance. I recall that in the Haruhi-chan version VN Yuki makes there is an incident of Arakawa hitting or nearly hitting the main character with his car. Perhaps this is something like that...though I've seen the "thinking about a long eventful future with someone scene that ends in tragic death" before....this doesn't seem like the series for that sort of thing. That and this would be about the right spot for the start of a new Volume, being right after their big hot springs trip that took several chapters.

There's an article in a Japanese magazine being published this week called Haruki and Haruhi. (The name and full details can be translated another time) In it, the authors went to the Dream Cafe that served as the model for the coffee lounge seen in the anime. In that shop, they have a message book for fans to write in. The authors found this message:

Yes, it's that person mentioned in the afterword of Disappearance. I thought it was a nice detail and wanted to pass it on to international fans.

So they (or at least, this magazine) have acknowledged that Haruki is a better name than Haruhiko, or is there some other meaning of Haruki that I'm not seeing in my dictionary?

Also, that's a pretty touching detail. Also nice that they actually read the notes.

Hey! Who wants release dates for Yen Press's Haruhi novels?!

The Intrigues Of Haruhi Suzumiya: Coming June 2012
The Indignation Of Haruhi Suzumiya: Coming September 2012
The Disassociation Of Haruhi Suzumiya: Coming April 2013
The Astonishment Of Haruhi Suzumiya: Coming September 2013

It looks like Astonishment will only be Part 1 as they list it as only having 240 pages (but that is likely to change in two years). At least we have confirmation that they are sticking with the franchise until then.

Thanks so much for this great news~ If nothing else, I'll at least have these to look forward to over the next two years =D

The last four books all list them as 240 pages, so I'm assuming it's just a placeholder amount. I'm thinking that since they don't list Astonishment as two parts they'll have both in one book.

Glad to see they're consistent. :-P (Extrapolation for the win!)

If they're all listed as 240, that speaks to a placeholder... especially considering the longest page-count of any released novel in English is in fact 240... but if Astonishment is coming in Sept 2013, is that really enough time to get both parts translated?

I wish it so, certainly.

Considering Intrigues is going to be the longest (assuming Astonishment is split into two volumes like everywhere else), it's certainly a placeholder. I believe these will change throughout the next two years as Yen will have more details when the works become finished. I'm just glad to see them licensed and have some kind of a concrete release date.

Can Astonishment be translated in full by September 2013? Yes, it's certainly possible and I wouldn't be surprised if Yen decides to do that. The problem will be the placement of the color pages and additional cover for the second book if a second book is not used. Maybe I'm too partial to the original release, but thus far it's been released as two books in every country thus far. Maybe Yen could cut us a break and release them together for once?

Edit since I don't see the need to double-post for this: Yen removed the listing for Astonishment around noon EST today. No reason is given. I'm curious as I sent an inquiry about some details regarding licenses/Astonishment's release details/etc this morning before the removal.

Yen Press has said before the ~6 month gaps are intentional to maximize sales and because they are being published as light novels.

I've gotten permission to post this here.

The Observation of Haruhi Suzumiya (the fanbook for the novels) has been fully translated into English. After battles with formatting, images, file sizes, and that damn timeline, I can now say it's finished. There are spoilers for the latest two novels, but it does not go past chapter 8 of Astonishment.

PDF/DOCX/EPUB

According to Hatchette Book Group's website, Intrigues has a final date of June 19, 2012. Look for more details to come forth in the Hardcover and Paperback pages when they are finalized.

The Back cover text has been released for The Intrigues of Haruhi Suzumiya:
Quote:
After closing a time loop fiasco in The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (Vol. 5), our protagonist Kyon is ready to start a new year with a blank slate--no time travel, no apocalyptic worries, and maybe some actual peace and quiet with the SOS Brigade, a club comprised of his high school's most extraordinary students. Their leader is Haruhi, a bold, brash girl who doesn't realize that she's actually a powerful goddess whose moods can easily change the balance of the universe.

Just as Kyon starts to get comfortable, he gets a visit from his friend Mikuru. Except this isn't his Mikuru; it's a Mikuru from eight days in the future! Time traveling shenanigans start all over again as Kyon, guided by the future Mikuru, attempts to stop a terrible future from becoming a reality.
(Yes, I kept the volume error. Sadly, that just makes it more evident it's from Hachette/Yen/Little, Brown.)

Also this volume will have a Kindle version!

So, I was looking in a light novel bookshop the other day and I saw a version of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya printed under 'Kadokawa Wing Books' of Kadokawa Taiwan. Is there any difference? Just thought I'd mention this because it was also mentioned in the Observation of Haruhi Suzumiya.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found the answer. For anyone who's interested, it's a series started in both Kadokawa Shoten and Kadokawa Taiwan aiming to provide light novels and stuff to younger readers. (i.e. ones that are suitable for them) The Kadokawa Shoten versions have extra hiragana next to the kanji (based on what I read in observation), and I have yet to find out what's different in the Chinese version.

Corrupting 'em early, I see...

The Kadokawa Tsubasa (角川つばさ文庫) label is a re-printing of popular novels or original novels designed to be read by elementary/middle school children. These books have a bigger font as well as furigana beside any kanji. It's the exact same text, but with these guides to help children read it.
