Series Ending Soon?

Series Ending Soon?

Jun 28

Yes, I am still here! It’s been a while. I hope you’ve all been doing ok.

(Ugh, I couldn’t find a way to make the title less click-baity. Sorry. It’s just that I can’t tell 100% without an official announcement.)

Anyway, Puyo’s (@puyotopia) last Tweet states (thanks to Carol who noticed this):

もうじき長門終わるんで谷川先生からわざわざうち宛にメッセージもらった、ありがたうれしい。

As Nagato will be ending soon, Mr. Tanigawa took the trouble to send me a message. I am both happy and thankful. [Translated]

This probably means that Volume 10 will be the final volume. I guess it was kind of getting obvious though, with some main characters leaving and all. So… I’ll monologue for a bit now. If you don’t want to read it, skip to the last sentence.

First off, this has been a really special experience. Thank you all for reading with me. I enjoyed working on this project, and I really feel blessed that I got to do so. It’s very rare for me to find a series that I’m that interested in. Strangely, never once did it feel like I didn’t want to work on this project or that I got sick of it. To be honest, I don’t know why I got so interested in the first place. Perhaps it was because I wanted a happy ending for Nagato. Perhaps I’m just a nerd who likes Haruhi related stuff too much, and I’m a sucker for intertextuality. But regardless, this has been really fun, and I’ve learned a lot. So once again, thank you so much all for the support. It really helps when people are interested in your work. I don’t want to sound like I’m saying my work is the holy grail or anything, so at the risk of letting it all go to my head, I’ll stop now.

That said, the series isn’t officially over yet. Stay tuned for actual official announcements. And here’s hoping for a satisfying ending. (Not that I expect one, but I really like epilogues, and I really want to see one for this series. Not enough stories do that.) Oh, and, of course, I still plan on translating Volume 10 whenever it actually does come out.

What do you think? I’d like to hear from you.

I noticed we also stopped production on the other project we’re supposed to be in charge of, Haruhi-chan Nano Branch. (Should be on the right side of the main page.) What I want to know is, would people be interested in seeing the rest of the chapters finished? I personally don’t like it that much, but it is very short (10 chapters total). If I get enough people to say they want it, I’ll go ahead with it. Otherwise, I may just forget about it entirely.

Yesterday was certainly a very busy day for Nagato Yuki, as a lot of anime related blogs posted the news about the upcoming anime for The vanishing of Nagato Yuki-chan – I know, I known, the official translation is “disappearance” but the original manga translate it as “vanishing”. In any case, in a tweet posted by @ultimatemegax you can read this:

From the Yen Press site:

Where Haruhi goes, trouble follows!

The two storylines from The Disassociation of Haruhi Suzumiya continue, introducing a new inductee into the S.O.S. brigade who may be more than just the eager freshman she appears to be. As the two realities converge, the SOS Brigade learns that the new member may have the ability to bring the two story “timelines” together… and save the world in the process.

This book was originally published as two separate volumes in Japan, but the U.S. version will feature both volumes for the price of one.
