In commemoration of the long awaited release of the twelfth volume of the light novels written by Nagaru Tanigawa and illustrated by Noizi Ito, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, scheduled for November 25 in Japan, Kadokawa Publishing House has launched the special survey entitled “The General Election of Haruhi Suzumiya ”, an online vote to determine the popularity of the characters in the series.
The voting period is scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m. on November 10 and end at 1:00 p.m. on November 30 of this year (the above according to Japan Standard Time). From a total of 26 characters, fans can vote for one of them once a day (with a reset at 00:00 in Japan), and the ranking will be determined by the points obtained (10 points for each vote). Finally, the results are expected to be published at the end of December 2020, while the survey is available at this link.
Tanigawa and Ito published the light novels through Kadokawa publishing house between 2003 and 2011 with a total of eleven volumes. The play inspired a fourteen episode anime adaptation (28 on broadcast) produced by Kyoto Animation Studios, directed by Tatsuya Ishihara and scripts written by Yasuhiro Takemoto, released in April 2006.
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu Synopsis
Kyon, the typical high school student, has never believed in the supernatural. However, after meeting Haruhi Suzumiya, he quickly realizes that she is quite interested in topics such as aliens, time travelers, and special powers. While Haruhi laments about the lack of interesting things at school, Kyon inspires her to form her own club. This results in the creation of the "SOS Brigade", a club that specializes in the search for the supernatural. Much to his regret, Kyon, along with the bookworm Yuki Nagato, the shy Mikuru Asahina and the smiling Itsuki Koizumi , are recruited as the first members of the club.
