About Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Manga Volume 1

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya volume 1 features story by Nagaru Tanigawa and art by Gaku Tsugano.

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 getting these supernatural beings together. The initial members consist of the mute bookworm Yuki Nagato, the timid but voluptuous Mikuru Asahina, and the polite and ever-smiling Itsuki Koizumi. But it isn't long before Kyon realizes that Haruhi's "helpless victims" are hiding some secrets...

This may be the worst manga I have ever owned. We all know the Haruhi series is legendary, but this manga is not a worthy adaptation. The art is lack luster and generic, often sloppy/simple, the panels are not captivating, and some of the characters look like bad fanart. All in all, just very disappointing and doesn't hold a candle to the quality of the TV series. I'm not usually one to post scathing reviews, nor do I want discourage anyone from checking this out if they're curious, but in my experience, it's just awful. The cover art is nice, that's about the only positive. Maybe the quality of the manga improves in later volumes, I don't know, but this first was just depressing.
