That headline may sound a little bit odd, but while there are plenty of Haruhi-related books out there, including at least one artbook for the anime series, illustrator/character designer Noizi Ito himself hasn't released a The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya artbook. Until now!

The book is titled Haruhi Shugi – Ito Noizi Artbook - (“Haruhi Shugi” would be the Japanese equivalent of Haruhi-ism), and features new illustrations as well as previously-published ones from the Sneaker and the light novels themselves. It's over 100 pages, too, which is a pretty big art book...

AkibaBlog has a half-dozen photos of inside pages, which I've included a few of here. But I'm willing to bet that we'll be seeing plenty of imported copies of these at conventions and various online stores, so be sure to buy a copy if you love Ito's artwork as much as I do!

I totally would buy this if I wasn't have money problems hopefully I can find a copy of it in the summer online. I love Ito's art.

Ehhh, Ito's good, but a bit too moe for my tastes, so I probably won't pick it up. I want another Ray Omishi artbook-- yum, Sorcerer Hunters. He IS working on a new manga called U~min, but even it looks moe...sigh...I don't hate moe in and of itself, but I hate that EVERYTHING is moe these days...

A bit late considering how far down the road the Haruhi craze is, don't you think? Cool I guess...

Oh snaps. I just have to import this or go to Kinokuniya. <3
Now I'm totally psyched. I've always loved the art in the light novels.

Heero: Considering how desperate people are for any kind of NEW Haruhi content, I dunno.

Don't worry7 soon we will have season 2, I mean why else would it be 2 cours and and be posted on youtube.

edit: I looked and confirmed um Noizi Ito is female so why are you calling her a he?
