Haruhi Suzumiya manga by Mizuno Makoto

Mizuno Makoto’s The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya manga was the first manga adaptation of Nagaru Tanigawa’s original light novels. Because Tanigawa had very little input about this manga, the story varies considerably from the Haruhi Suzumiya light novels.  It ran in Shonen Ace from May to December of 2004, and was canceled after just one volume (5 chapters) due to unpopularity with fans. Apparently when Gaku Tsugano’s version of the Haruhi Suzumiya manga was serialized by Shonen Ace in 2005, it was declared “the first manga adaptation”, thus completely ignoring the existence Makoto’s version.

As far as we are aware, the sole volume Mizuno Makoto’s Haruhi manga has never been translated into English or any other non-Japanese language, but we do have the raw version available for download if you’re interested in taking a peek.

    Lol Mikuru’s boobs don’t look like boobs. The new manga is better.

    Thank you for posting this. I was for the longest time highly curious how this version of Haruhi was.

    Ya,it is now in English. I got the first four volumes out of the public library on the fourth. So I can say that it is atleast out in America.

    I actually think the artist did a really good job. I’m definately intrested in the manga itself, especially if it differs from the current manga and light novel, so somebody please translate.

  • MilkyChocoxD said:

    I’m actually interested to and want to read it. Maybe when I learn more Japanese I’ll attempt to translate.

    I think Mizuno Makuto was better at drawing males, because the females look a bit masculine, and Kyon looks good enough to be almost the real Kyon. Mizuno, draw males, not females!

    So, someone snuck up behind her and surprised her with an offering of two neatly paper-wrapped mystery sandwiches?

    Megaupload closed. Can someone reupload this manga?

  • senshikoi said:

    If I’d known this was here, I would have downloaded it ages ago! This is where Mikuru would be a real help :) ! Doesn’t look like the request has been fulfilled a year on, but I’ll try my luck; can anyone upload the raws again? Thanks in advance, if fulfilled.
