Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu
Summary and Preview
A series of official 4-koma and comedy shorts by the artist "Puyo", based on The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi.
It might seem impossible to parody the already over-the-top and self-referencing, tongue-in-cheek irony of the world of Suzumiya Haruhi, but that's exactly what this manga series attempts do in the latest installment in the Haruhi canon. Haruhi is as zany as ever, leading her school club, the SOS Brigade, through one hair-brained scheme after another. Contrasting with her is Kyon, a normal-minded, somewhat lazy student who generally resents Haruhi's crazy ideas; Miruku, a docile scaredy-cat who actually is a time-traveler sent back to monitor Haruhi; Yuki, a quiet bookworm who is actually a Data Integration Through Entity investigating a data explosion related to Haruhi; and Istuki, charismatic and agreeable, and actually an Esper also sent to monitor Haruhi. Because while Haruhi may only assume she's the center of the universe, it turns out she unknowingly has the power to change, alter or undo the world with her mood swings, and its up to Kyon to keep her from getting bored of this life.
