The Haruhi novels will not be watered down for American audiences, though the text will be edited for readability (literal translations of the novels can read kind of awkwardly to mainstream audiences).
Cool. The fluidity of the text is what I'm looking most forward to. I'm grateful to Baka-tsuki, but their translations do have those literal translation jolts. Ah, I'm looking forward to the release more than ever... April 2009 is too far away.

Excellent. Now April 09 needs to come faster.

If Japanese wasn't the most insufferable language ever to learn, I would have already have had enough incentive to learn it and then buy the Japanese novels. Unfortunately all I get to do now is pout and cry. Sigh, I hope the anime comes faster than the damn English novel translations. But just to clear up any possible misconceptions, we'll have just the "first" novel translated by April 2009" correct? This is a horribly long time to wait.

Bah, I've been waiting for a year and a half for the second season... this is nothing.

You know, I would buy the novels, but by the time they release the tenth volume in 3-4 years, I probably won't care anymore.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Uhuh, sure, that's why with 3 months of hard study I am speaking very very basic Japanese. lol

Stop pouting, and learn the language. Its not actually that hard after your comfortable with it.

True, that . I have about four months of rather lax study, and I'm understanding drama CDs and trying to translate manga.

All it takes is a decent book or two and the willingness to try.

The three I use (I picked up a new one since last time) are:

1. Super Review Japanese Grammar, William McGovern, from REA;
2. Learning Hiragana and Katakana (workbook), Tetsuo Takaguchi and Kenneth G. Henshall, from Tuttle Language Library;
3. A Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters, Kenneth G. Henshall, from Tuttle Language Library.

For getting into the language, acquiring basic reading skills, and improving reading skills, respectively.

Also good for somebody who doesn't have a teacher is the "Japanese for Busy People" series--I recommend using the Kana version.

So with the news of Haruhi season two being released in the next Newtype magazine, think we'll learn anything about novel 10? And it's not licensed yet so we might be able to have a translation for the time before it does get licensed no?

It is licensed, but not out yet. The first volume should be out in 1 year.

Volumes 1-9 are what's licensed, so volume 10 would be fair game (until it is licensed).

I'd imagine it'll come out around the same time. Didn't they release Volume 8 in the middle of the first season?

Yes, the novels will be licensed. However, they are being licensed by a company that appears to know what they're doing, so...

Spoiler for Vol.9:
