Their US site still lists it for April:

Actually, Amazon shows it as "in stock", with Amazon.com (complete with company logo) as the seller, the hardcover version, at least (didn't check softcover, because frankly, the cover bites). Just ordered it (was planning on getting it from Amazon anyway), but no way was I springing for the more-than-the-cost-of-the-book 2 day shipping, so I guess we'll find out if they actually had it in stock some time next week. Or earlier if I get an "order shipped" notification...

Will keep you posted.

EDIT: If you're paranoid like me, check the seller before you finalize any orders based on this post. Per the item page, only five remain in stock, and of those, only one is from Amazon, and one other is used (for a higher price, if you can believe that).

Waaaaa?

THAT wasn't in the books.

The Kouyouen uniform is all black... it's intended to look businesslike and professional.

What the hell?

Well, the manga has taken a few liberties... though this really pushes things

Liberties that involved expanding upon the storyline and other elements, which I like...

This is a bit...

Is this the trope you're looking for?

So, is this the second half of Disappearance, or do we still have one more volume?

About the cover: I like it. I'm sure that's probably just one scene or fanservice. I'm positive it'll be the black uniform for the rest of the book. Also, I like how Disappearance-Haruhi is posed like the way she is on the Melancholy light novel cover.

I actually found and did the same thing myself. Supposedly it shipped yesterday. I was cross referencing for almost an hour to make absolutely sure it wasn't the manga with a error cover pic.

Did you do so before or after my post? And did you get the $10.19 Amazon.com stock copy? Reason I ask is that the (presumably) same one copy in Amazon.com's stock that remained after I ordered mine is still in Amazon.com's stock, and is still only one. If you ordered after me, it's safe to assume that Amazon.com has more than one in stock, or has an inventory mapping feature that is either incorrect or poorly updated, or both.

My bookstore for some reason had the paperback edition early and because I can't wait any longer I bought it. It's actually not that bad looking, the red is a nice shade but there is a rather ugly candy coloured opening page with the silhouette of Haruhi. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't constantly poking out.
As for the contents i only got to page 56 and so far Kyon use some interesting words like 'sup, watch'cha, and unfreakingbelievable. Despite that it has been an enjoyable read. As far as i can tell there hasn't been any censorship. All the illustrations are there including the colour pages which are at the back now.

Nope Kyon actually says that when haruhi says there taking over the literary club's room. It's page 33.

Ugh... does he at least sound intelligent and philosophical? Also, how many pages there? And, is there any indication of them doing the next book,The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya?

Thank you very much in advance,

Solachinx

I wish there were translations for the newer Haruhi mangas available.

There are 200 pages that excludes the colour pages, manga preview, and the copy right information at the beginning. Whether Kyon sound philosophical i don't know i have a pretty poor memory when it comes to remembering what each character says. Sorry, maybe someone else could answer that. Though from what i can remember he is snarky. I would love to know if more books are coming as well.

200? That's pretty short compared to the japanese page count. Eh, whatever.

I guess a Sigh release depends on the success of the first one.
