This thread is dedicated for the Haruhi manga.
I just bought a copy of the first volume and my expectations were really low as people did say that the anime and the Novel were a lot better compared to it. Well maybe because I was expecting to be disappointed that I didn't. Rather than that I did enjoy reading it. The story moved on a different flow but it was basically still following it.
[SPOILERS]There are some obvious changes made as Kyon left early and he wasn't able to listen to the whole "alien"-story by Yuki and the battle scene between Asakura and Yuki were also different. I prefer the anime, obviously for the sound and movement, but a fresh look can be good.[/SPOILERS]
At the end of the manga. You'll also find the first chapter of the Novel as a promotion for the upcoming english release on 2009. I haven't read up to that part as my bro here started reading it before I could finish it. >_<
All in all. I'm buying volume 2 if it ever comes out here.
you can read it here:
but I do recommend reading it in paper form. I find it more enjoyable to read it in that form.
