      Synopsis

      "Let's track down aliens, time travelers, and psychics and hang out with them!" Haruhi Suzumiya established the SOS Brigade for that sole purpose. But why's she been acting so strange of late? So...melancholy? Unable to locate any supernatural beings (even though they're right there in the club room the whole time), Haruhi's frustrations turn violent. What's Kyon gotten himself mixed up in this time?! Enjoy volume 2 of this somewhat abnormal high school story!

      • Kyon, Haruhi and Her Ponytail: Slight Improvement, Still Average
        From Amazon

        This is a review of Volume 2 of COMIC version of "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" illustrated by Gaku Tsugano. Don't confuse this with Nagaru Tanigawa's original novel of the same title. (Though credited, Tanigawa only provided the story for this comic book.) The second volume shows more of the characters' personal feelings and special abilities, plus "Closed Spaces" and "celestial." Here an ordinary high school boy Kyon is to know some of the secrets of cute Mukuru Asahina(s) and her star-shaped mole, and the ever-smiling enigmatic "esper" Itsuki Koizumi and his superpowers. There is an episode about Haruhi's ponytail and a cameo of Tsuruya-san (I suppose). Those who have seen the Kyoto Animation's acclaimed animated version remember these episodes, though the manga version is slightly different in some of the details. The problem of this manga version is its rushed pace and illustration. The early part of the second volume goes too fast, leaving not much room for the characters to develop. Gaku Tsugano's illustration has become slightly better than in the previous volume, but some part still need improvement, especially the designs of a "celestial" which, frankly, looks amateurish. The faces of Haruhi, Mikuru and Nagato are good; Koizumi's facial expressions should be much richer, and as to Kyon ... well, not bad in the ponytail episodes. The original Japanese comic was published in June, 2006. Yen Press's English edition has faithfully reproduced the original's artworks including the opening color pages. Translation is fine, and Yen Press didn't forget to provide translation of the FX and signs. The publisher even changed the font in some places, as in Japanese counterpart. However, some words look out of place, Kyon's expletive in p.142, for instance. I am a fan of the series (and energetic Tsuruya-san), but I have to say the comic is slightly disappointing, after looking at Noizi Ito's superior original character designs. The comic is strictly for the fans of the Haruhi series.

      • Great Manga
        From Amazon

        This manga is very well written and very well drawn. A must buy for any Haruhi fan!

      • Great Addition to the Haruhi Suzumiya Series
        From Amazon

        If you have already watched the anime and still need your fix of haruhiism, check out this book. it is the manga version of the series and still contains the comedy and drama the anime does. there are a few scenes that change on the manga but it still keeps the same storyline the anime series has. It's a must buy for any Haruhi fan.

      • melancholy of Haruhi Suzamia vol.2
        From Amazon

        I personally really liked this manga. It gives you a different spin on the story then the anime, as it gives you more details. If you have seen the anime and loved it as I did, I would argue that you should get the manga because you dont get everything in the anime. You can also get the fealing that your getting into the writers head a little when you see how its different from the anime and how things where changed. Also, If you havent seen the anime I would also say that there are things in the anime that are not in the manga. So even though there similer, one vershion does not truly replace the other. If you do choose to read the manga first I recomend starting from vol.1 as this is technically a review for vol.2 so im going to place a link to vol.1 here. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Vol. 1 (v. 1) Also, Im placing a link here for anyone interested in the anime. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya: Complete Collection
