AkibaBlog's English may not always be good, but this is an interesting article anyway: they report that the gag manga Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu volume 2 was expected to outsell the manga adaptation (Tsuganogaku version, the one Yen Press has licensed) of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya volume 7.


Apparently Puyo's SD gag manga, which is being developed into a series of web shorts (along with the gag manga Nyoro~n Tsuruya-san), was given a significantly larger display than the main manga, and also had many more stacks of books-- in other words, the stores expect it to be a lot more popular than the manga.


Why do you think it is? My instinct is to suspect that it's because the manga, while good, is still a retread of the material from the novels, whereas Haruhi-chan is new content. (Not to mention the second volume apparently contains an eroge-loving Yuki. Why hasn't anyone licensed this manga here yet, again?)

I agree. I'd rather buy the original novels and then read all new material than a port to manga.

Also, the manga isn't even that great an adaption. It's the anime that provides something new on top of the novels.

I like the manga adaption but I really want this gag manga now released. *hopes it will get licensed somehow so he can see erogre loving Yuki*
