Kyon is your ordinary high school freshman who has long given up on his childhood dreams of encountering the fantastic and supernatural...or so he thought. From the very first day of school, his classmate-the beautiful but eccentric Haruhi Suzumiya-makes it very clear that her only desire is to meet aliens, time travelers, and psychics! A chance conversation between the two inspires Haruhi to form the SOS Brigade, a school club created for the sole purpose of gathering together such supernatural beings. The initial members consist of the mute bookworm Yuki Nagato, the timid but voluptuous Miharu Asahina, and the polite and ever-smiling Itsuki Koizumi. By the end of this first volume, Kyon quickly finds out that these seemingly "helpless victims" of Haruhi's are actually members of secret organizations-both futuristic and alien-with the single aim of keeping watch over Haruhi Suzumiya as she is the pinnacle of some major calamity on the horizon...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Watch the anime, read the book. I love the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise, but I found the manga lacking. It was just a play-by-play version of the book. The art is nice, but I find it hard to adapt to when I'm so used to the anime artwork. Not to say this is a bad manga, I just find they could've done something to improve it, instead of just copying the book. The anime did the same, but it was much more entertaining, and they added scenes from the other novels that haven't been released in english yet. All in all, only buy it if your a hardhore Haruhi Suzumiya fan.
