 Following an announcement from the Kadokawa Shoten’s Sneaker Bunko Twitter account of The Intuition of Haruhi Suzumiya, the next installment of the classic light novel series The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Yen Press, LLC announced a digital release of the highly anticipated volume scheduled for November 25, 2020, simultaneous with the Japanese release. Yen Press will release a print edition of The Intuition of Haruhi Suzumiya at a later date.

The Intuition of Haruhi Suzumiya is written by Nagaru Tanigawa, illustrated by Noizi Ito and will be translated by Andrew Cunningham.

Yen Press also announced today that previous volumes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya light novels will receive new printings, rebranding the series under their Yen On light novel imprint. Further details, including the format and release dates of the new printings, will be forthcoming.

With the first volume released in 2009 in a co-publishing agreement between Yen Press and Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya light novel franchise was a precursor to the expansive selection of light novels available in the English language market today, helping to pave the way for that explosive growth.

Adaptations of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya include an anime that was initially released by Bandai Entertainment in 2007 and several manga series released by Yen Press, the first of which began publication in 2008. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya has stood out as one of the most iconic properties in the light novel, manga and anime space for more than a decade.

  1. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was the anime series that got me into anime and then later into light novels. Especially reading the light novels was a “religious experience” for me and I’ve been patiently waiting for more volumes for years, when I read this news I seriously thought it was either a joke or I fell asleep and this is all just a dream. Yen On re-releases is something I’ve been asking Yen Press for a while, I already have the Little, Brown Books for Young Readers paperbacks and hardcovers and eBooks too but I’ll be definitely buying the Yen On versions too next year, really hoping they’ll do a box set.
