Book Description

1 Dec 2011 Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (Book 6)

Readers take a step into a time warp in five short stories. Head back to events from the previous books and previously unseen scenes and perspectives to uncover mysteries that had been left unanswered.

* Live Alive - Kyon peruses the stalls at the cultural festival and visits Mikuru's noodle stall. Everything seems normal for once, until a surprise band shows up to perform. * The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina: Episode 00 - The movie that the SOS Brigade created in The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya is shown and the Brigade gets to see it in its final form. * Love at First Sight - Kyon meets with an old friend, who describes seeing a girl he's fallen in love with-and it turns out to be Yuki! Will this mere human have a chance with the world's most stoic robot? * Where Did the Cat Go? - This story takes readers back to Book 3 (The Rampage of Haruhi Suzumiya) in which the SOS Brigade finally begins the main event for the Snow Mountain retreat murder mystery. *The Melancholy of Mikuru Asahina - Mikuru asks Kyon to accompany her to buy tea leaves, but a secret motive may be involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Haruhi Short Stories 8 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The sixth book in the `Haruhi Suzumiya' series of light novels contains a further five short stories of the adventures of the SOS Brigade.

`Live Alive': The first story in the book is about the first day of the North High School Festival and sees Kyon get a surprise when he goes to see a concert being put on by the pop music club. This is an entertaining, if short, story that has some nice character development for Haruhi and is worth a good four stars.

`The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00': This story is the film that the SOS Brigade made and it is a brilliantly funny story. As with the anime adaptation, it is Kyon's narration of events that makes it so good and this is probably one of my favourite of the `Haruhi Suzumiya' short stories. This story is well worth a full five stars on its own and is probably my favourite one in this book.

`Love at First Sight': This is quite a nice story that focuses on Nagato. The story sees one of Kyon's friends from Junior High call him saying that he is in love with Nagato. As she is one of my favourite characters, I will always like any story that focuses on Yuki and this one is no exception. The story has some quite sweet moments as well as some humorous ones and it is worth a full five stars.

`Where Did the Cat Go': An okay story that details Koizumi's murder mystery game that takes place after the story `Snowy Mountain Syndrome'. The story is quite interesting and although the beginning is rather slow with a lot of scene setting but once that is done it does become quite interesting, although I did guess the identity of the murderer quite easily. Overall an interesting story that is worth four stars on its own.

Though Tanigawa's later novels are mainly in short story format, each story is linked to the main plot from his earlier books. They tend to fill in the blanks, elaborating incidents that happen in tandem with previous experiences suffered by the intrepid members of the SOS Brigade under their incorrigible leader, Haruhi Suzumia. Like Kyon, the reader can't quite understand how Tanigawa's heroin has worked her spell once again into forcing you to share in his suffering ...perhaps it lies in Kyon's own irresistible recounting of each adventure! (Do read other reviews that describe the plot of each story in greater detail.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun to read for any Haruhi fan 15 Nov 2011
By ssjmick - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This being sixth entry in the light novel series, in chapter one, the day of the cultural festival has arrived, and Kyon visits the day's events. These include a fried noodle stall run by Mikuru and a live performance by a surprising band. The movie created in The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya is shown for the first time in chapter two. An old friend of Kyon's calls in chapter three to ask him about a girl he saw Kyon walking with months before. He is actually referring to Yuki, and tries to pursue her. In chapter four, the SOS Brigade finally begins the main event for the Snow Mountain retreat, a murder mystery. In chapter five, Mikuru asks Kyon to accompany her to buy tea leaves, but a secret motive may be involved. (Wiki reference)

The first 2 chapters are covered in the anime but still fun to read. The other 3 chapters are also fun to read, chapter 4 "Where did the Cat Go?" is a great chapter that will keep you thinking. This is a great book and for any fan of the series this book would make a excellent addition to their collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Read with a Proper Translation 30 Jun 2012
By Sammy Swartz - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As noted by author Nagaru Tanigawa himself, the Haruhi Suzumiya series is comprised, somewhat erratically, of both long-form and short-form works; some volumes contain one complete, dedicated story, while other volumes are short story collections about various events only tenuously related to each other. The long-form tales are generally the better of these two structures, of course, as they center on plot points more central to the overall narrative. Conversely, the shorter stories are often less essential to the general storyline, opting instead to focus on the more incidental events in the characters' lives.

This sixth book in the ever expanding series utilizes the short-story template, telling five very different, character-driven episodes. The first tale delves into Haruhi's character, adding a rarely seen dimension to her persona. Nagato is the main draw of the third story, in which she continues to manifest, albeit very slowly, a more human-centric disposition. The final story examines the enigmatic relationship between Kyon and Mikuru and their potentially forbidden feelings for each other, and makes for a nice conclusion to the compilation. The second and fourth stories, unfortunately, are not as interesting, although readers might still be able to discern a few worthwhile details about certain characters and events nonetheless.

Perhaps most surprising, however, is the noticeable improvement in the translation work compared to some previous volumes--the occasional awkward sentence aside, the text reads naturally, with Tanigawa's excellent characterizations and use of metaphor converted artfully into English. Even Kyon's extended monologues, which sometimes can be hard to follow, seem to flow more seamlessly this time around.

How should a volume with three good and two mediocre stories be graded? That's a tough call, but I'll err on the side of generosity this time and grant it that fourth star.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally get to see the movie... 7 Oct 2013
By jacobtlong - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While the short story format is not my preferred format when it comes to the tales of Haruhi, I have to say that on the whole I did like this collection more than I thought I would.

My favorite stories in this collection were probably Love at First Sight and The Melancholy of Mikuru Asahina. The former features Nagato as the main character and I just think that there is so much more potential for her as a character that any little tidbit that can help shed some light on her is a good thing. In this one, Nagato does some heartbreaking. In the latter, we more or less see Mikuru and Kyon go out together alone... Not on a date, though. Not time travel, either.

The first two stories are probably the weakest of the bunch, but they are fun to see if you have seen the anime. The second story The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00 was made into the first episode of the anime series. So you finally get to see how the movie was originally written. Or seen, if you can picture it in your head much as I did. Live Alive is about Haruhi playing with the band.

The fourth story is a mystery so I won't say anything about it.
