    Chapter 5 is out

    http://polychromium.wordpress.com/20...lation-status/

    I've been a little too busy to read Haruhi lately, I'll read it eventually or maybe I should wait and marathon both novels when the translations are done.

    Man the translations can not come out fast enough.

    Please keep the SPOILERS in white text *SPOILERS* LIKE THIS *SPOILERS*

    Hmm 2 Volumes and an extra chapter ^^

    I had to read book 9 again to remember what is what and which Chapters are connected to each other.
    [SPOILERS]I do feel that they could had made it as one Book instead of 2. The whole story took place in just a week (actually make that 2 weeks). Kyon is either procrastinating in one and is bored/confused at the other.

    Though I still enjoyed it. I like the revelations on who Taniguchi was dating last december, The Taxi driver's son and the twist in the end regarding Asahina and Fujiwara. My favorite part would have been the fight between the aliens. >_<

    Anyway Sasaki and Kyon's little talks tend to give me a headache. I was always checking if they had any other hidden messages in their talks but from what I can see. It's nothing more than idle chatter. Maybe I just couldn't see it or maybe I'm just wishing for it. >.>

    But I do hope Sasaki and Kuyou will come back later on in the next volumes. It would be interesting to see what they'd do if they try to join they're "adventures" ^^. I expect Tachibana will be there if Sasaki is there but she'll probably end up like Koizumi to Haruhi.

    Btw Yasumi being Haruhi's "other self" does that mean she's never coming back?
    [/SPOILERS]

    @Knite: SPoiler PIcS!!!!!!! XD
    It's a good thing I've read the novel first before posting here or else I would have seen that!

    I don't know if anyone is following this thread anymore but I'll my thought here anyway.

    I just kept delaying it but I finally finished reading it, I started on it after I got my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone. It makes it eaasier to read while I'm commuting.

    I don't think I need any spoiler tags because the novel and translation has been out for over a year now.

    Although This arc fell well below my expectations, it was still an enjoyable read, I especially like how the author developed some of the characters, especially Sasaki, I just love her conversations with Kyon, I hope to see more of her soon but it seems Sasaki and Kyon have gone their separate ways. Koyou was also very kool being able to close her own against the other aliens but taking order from fujiwara like a doll at the end there seem out of character to me, what kind of deal did those two make? Was there anything Fujiwara could offer Koyou that she couldn't get with all her powers?

    Yasumi was a interesting and enjoyable character, if Haruhi was more like Yasumi instead of her current self, I would like Haruhi a lot more. Tachibana needed a lot more development for me, she just seem a NPC character who just happen to be there, she felt more invisible to me then either Nagato or Koyou.

    I'm even more curious about the future now that we learn that Asahina could possibly have a brother. It makes me consider whether or not Asahina (Big) is Asahina' true future as it could easily go the other way where Fujiwara is her brother.

    Finally we need more tsuruya, she's just a kool character, she needs her own massive arc.

    It looks like the next volume will be a collection of short stories, One being about Tsuruya's Flower viewing party and the mystery gift to Haruhi for the SOS brigade anniversary. If we're lucky a third short story fore shadowing the events of the next arc.

    And now I wonder when the next novel will be released. Hopefully it doesn't take another half a decade to be published and translated.
