The hi-res version isn't HD (it if was, the file size would've been ridiculous). I heard Chiba TV is offering HD contents for their programs, but I don't think that applies to this either.

The important thing is that the hi-res versions do look far better than the regular 704x396 versions, that's all that matters to me.
File size of rips have nothing to do with whether it was originally broadcast in HD or not. Obviously it's compressed by the guys who release these rips. H.264 and Divx 5 can easily compress 25 minutes of 720p video to 400 or even 300 megs. It's not a pristine master quality result, but it does the job. Being in 1280x720 resolution makes a video file high definition, period. The question is whether this is merely created through software scaling by the guys who rip the episodes and put out the torrents(call it cheating if you will), or if it is broadcast natively in HD in Japan.

The fact that there is noticable increase in detail(not just sharpness) in the HD releases leads me to believe that this show was produced and broadcast in HD. If it is just upsampling, kudos to the guys who do it, because it's some of the best results I've seen in upscaled series.

From what I can tell visually so to speak, all the 1280x720 versions of the Haruhi episodes look like they were simply upscaled, and don't really show any more detail than what's shown in the initial 704x396 versions. .hack//Roots and Ergo Proxy are good examples of the HD resolution actually being taken advantage of.

I also couldn't really see any extra details from the 1280x720 versions apart from the increased sharpness. They sure do look good though.

If there's upscaling involved, I guess the question is where that process took place. If it's done by either Kyoto Animation or by the TV channel, at the source, so to speak, then it's understandable that the quality is this high. If it's really done by the guys who ripped the episode, then kudos to them indeed. I wasn't able to get near their level of quality through some uprezzing effort of my own, but of course this is probably also because I'm dealing with compressed files.

The second volume of the manga will be out soon (26/6/2006).

I added its cover to the post with all the light novel and manga covers, which is on the first page of this thread.

Quick question that i don't know how to search for because i am either lazy or stupid. Enlighten me -- is the story, as far the the novels go, completed? Or are they still releasing novels, thus no definite end to the series yet?

Currently volume 8 was just release, and from people who have read it, it's not the last one either.

Yikes! That'll translate to a lot of episodes, and considering how crazy good the animation for this show is, i doubt they'll make a lot of seaons of this stuff, right? ohh man, from what i've seen i really like the show but... oh well! Thanks, GTO.

The official site is here:

http://www.haruhi.tv/

Kyoto Animation's site is here:

http://www.kyotoanimation.co.jp/haruhi/

Both of those are Japanese.

I'm pretty sure we have a handful of femme regular posters but I can't list them off the top of my head. Meh.... just carry on about Kyon and Itsuki. They are a rare breed in anime: guys that real girls might be attracted to.

how many novels are released?

how many novels are there planned in total?

does the series only span the first novel?

for those that have read the novels or at least some of them, do kyon and suzumiya develop a relationship farther down the road?

There are 8 novels released.

I don't think there is a set number of novels planned yet.

The series kind of goes all over the place, but it's mainly concentrated in the first novel (Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu), where 6 episodes are made from it. Other episodes are sort of randomly taken from other novels.

And for your last question, do you mean a romantic relationship?
