Synopses & Reviews
(Volume 1)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 actually members of secret organizations - both futuristic and alien - keeping watch over Haruhi, as she is the pinnacle of some major calamity on the horizon...
Trapped on the snowy mountain by both a storm and the supernatural forces that have cut off Yuki from the Data Overmind, Kyon is roused from sleep by Asahina slowly unbuttoning her nightshirt as she climbs into his bed! Kyon realizes it cannot possibly be the real Asahina (darn!), and though he doesn't mind the house's tricks (who would?), he and the Brigade have to crack the code and escape fast before Yuki's fever (and Haruhi's restlessness) gets out of control!
