Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu's songs hit Spotify
After a long hiatus in publishing, the light novels written by Nagaru Tanigawa and illustrated by Noizi Ito, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, returned to the world with their twelfth volume published on November 25 in Japan. To celebrate the release, the voice actress who plays Haruhi Suzumiya, Aya Hirano, launched her previous catalog via streaming services around the world and the Tokorozawa Sakura Town, which is managed by Kadokawa Publishing House, was decorated with franchise theme.
Aya Hirano's songs (including the music themes for all Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu's animated projects) are available through Spotify and Apple Music platforms in Japan, and will be released through Amazon Music shortly. However, even though the announcement was specific to Japan, the songs are also available globally. In addition, on December 9, the songs performed by Yuko Goto (who voices Mikuru) will be added, which means 557 songs from the franchise released between the two dates.
Additionally, the reported "activity" that had been revealed through the franchise's official site turned out to be a series of posters, banners, and an art installation at Tokorozawa Sakura Town. The designs recall the story of the “Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody” with the alien language on the ground and the banners that write “I'm here!”. The images of the collaboration were published on the project's own official site.
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. As Haruhi laments about the lack of cool things at school, Kyon inspires her to form hers of hers. 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.
