Thanksgiving Coming A Day Early This Year

In one of the bigger out-of-nowhere announcements I've heard in the anime/manga world, Kadokawa and Nagaru Tanigawa released a statement revealing that Light Novel #12, The Intuition of Haruhi Suzumiya, is being released on November 25.  Note that this will be #11 in the States, as the last two Japanese novels were combined into one here.  In Japan, it's been nine years since the last release.

Providing us with more evidence that Yen Press loves us and wishes us to be happy, they put out a tweet stating that they'll be releasing the digital version in English simultaneously.  And, because that simply wasn't enough good news they're intending to reprint all of the light novels in physical form as well.  Which is great, because old copies are selling online for stupidly high prices.  It's not unusual to see the full US sets of 10 books selling for over $500.

Which is, of course, patently absurd.  

I am greatly amused by the timing of the announcement here in the States... August 31st is, after all, the last day of the Endless Eight time loops.

2 Huh. I have the first few of the LNs on the shelf, and had generally assumed that the Haruhi thing had run its course. Good on them!

Also, Mauser, that is DELIGHTFUL.
