Haruhi manga licensed in Singapore by ChuangYi comics

11 12 2007

This is freaking awesome.

It might not be the original light novels, but Chuangyi is still the first company to have licensed the Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu manga version, announced on the Chuangyi forums here(you need membership to view).

It’s going to be out early 2008, under the English translated title ‘The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya’.

Excuse me while I fangirl more over Chuangyi’s EPIC WIN-ness.

In your face, tokyopop/VIZ/DHM/Del Rey!

And on an entirely unrelated note : The article in Straits Times on Gail Simone had an error. The Birds of Prey tv series came out before Gail helmed the comics.  😀
