Haruhi manga and light novel coming in English
« on: April 17, 2008, 06:11:35 PM »

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-04-17/little-brown-gets-haruhi-light-novels-in-english

Wahoo! I'm excited. I love the light novels after reading a certain fan group's translations of them and now I'm excited that I'll be able to buy an actual book form of it! I can't wait for Disappearance, it's my favorite out of all the light novels.

Now what am I going to do with my printed copy of the fan group's translation that I printed at Kinkos...

Excellent. I've always found it a lot more satisfying to read things in paper form than on a computer screen, so this is welcome. I hope the localization of light novels becomes a trend, 'cause I really want someone to translate stuff like the Spice & Wolf ones!

I predict that this will somehow make news. Maybe the Mercury will do an article on how "Literacy is up with Manga fans-- or 'Otaku'-- with new 'Light novel' books" or some crap like that.

Still, great to see them coming overseas. Now I'll be able to, um, READ them.

I'll be picking them up as well, since I love to read and it helps pass the time as well. Plus I always wanted to read the source material after watching the anime and i can't wait to read them. That reminds me, i gotta pick up vol.1 of the Strawberry Panic light novels lol

Agreed! I would love to read Spice & Wolf.

... my cultural side cries a bit inside. (both of my parents are from the Philippines, not the area where the prison is but still...) Other than that, they're doing some parts wrong *coughs* but they're pretty in sync for such a huge group.

Loved the anime, and given the fact that mangas are usually better...I'm excited. I'm holding off reading it online until it comes out officially.

IIRC, light novels have been translated in English in the US, before, but they're not nearly as big as Haruhi.

The Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei manga is also being localized. I'm really curious as to how Zetsubou Sensei will turn out. o_0 It is easier to localize manga, rather than anime, though.

Me too!  Del Rey is currently my favorite licenser too, so I'm looking forward to it!  2009 is such a long time from now!  Can't wait!

I saw this and smiled. I can't believe it's actually being translated, so it came as a shock. Time to start saving I guess :D.

It was to be expected, especially how popular the series is and how large of a following it has in the US.

It's a light novel, and all translated light novels are still rare enough (or at least publicized poorly enough) to be surprising.

Untrue. The past couple of years, they've been picking up popular light novels and translating them into English more frequently. Haruhi was bound to happen, as it was popular, not as a series, but as literature as well.
