The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan, Vol. 1 Reviews

    The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan is a comic spin-off from the main Haruhi Suzumiya series. It seems to suggest that when, in the fourth volume of that series, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, the alternate timeline was created, that it continue even after the "main" universe was restored.To that end, the main characters are Yuki, Ryoko and Kyon, though really Yuki and Ryoko have the main stage. Oh, Kyon still has a big role as Yuki's potential love interest, but Ryoko, as Yuki's best friend and big sister/mother figure, has a bigger role.It should be noted that, just as when the alternate timeline was first introduced in the fourth Haruhi book, that Yuki and Ryoko are not ordinary human girls. Yuki is shy but not emotionless, and Ryoko has a temper but is sweet and not a psycho. Kyon is not developed much as we don't get much of his perspective, except for one or two spots.As the story progresses, we learn that the Literature Club, which Yuki is the only current member and president of, is about to be disbanded for not meeting the "at least five members" requirement. In her search for new members, Yuki runs into and recruits Kyon, whom she has been crushing on due to a small act of kindness he did for the shy girl. Ryoko keeps trying to push the two of them together, despite how much the unbearably shy girl is irked by it, though Yuki does appreciate the efforts of her friend.Haruhi shows up as well for her usual antics, in a hint of what will be more antics. Here she is different due to the changes that spawned this other timeline.I don't know if the other timeline is official, or if it is just a "what-if" scenario asking what would have happened had Kyon not changed things back to the way they were. I like to think that it really did spawn a separate universe.I really liked Nagato here. I think she's cool anywhere, but to see her mannerisms and interests ramped up to a higher level, combined with her shy demeanor, was sweet. As for Ryoko, I like her, but keep thinking of her evil and psycho main timeline self.Kyon is nice, but hasn't gotten much development. I hope eventually they do something with him. As for Haruhi, well, she is still Haruhi, if a nicer version created by the main Nagato.The art was actually really nice and better than the first few volumes I've read so far of the main timeline Haruhi series. I quite liked it.Really, really fun series and one I highly Recommend.

    While I do like the series as a whole, I hold volume 1 in a special place in my heart.Why, you may ask? Because I remember being excited when I learned of its existence, and quickly tried to find it online to read for free. Also, because the story first takes place in the wintertime -- the good ol' holidays, where you really appreciate the friends and family you love.And, I'll admit, I remember hating Ryoko Asakura at first, with the way she treated Yuki Nagato, like hitting her head to wake her up, and teasing her by playing around with her crush, Kyon. I thought she was being a bad/fake friend to Nagato, but by the end of chapter 2, it was clear to me that she really cared for her. That was a really sweet moment.I also loved Tsuruya & Mikuru Asahina's introductions, along with their gym teacher. It was just the first chapter, and yet, the art already amazed me there!But my most favorite moment is when Nagato decides to go out to buy some bread from the store and (view spoiler)[runs into a mysterious girl she doesn't know, who wants her help in making a big sign on the ground using chalk-- whom Nagato reminisces of at the club's Christmas party. Speaking of the Christmas party, I remember rolling my eyes when Nagato's love confession to Kyon was interrupted by Tsuruya (hide spoiler)].Yuki Nagato is so adorable. I can relate to her, because we're both shy, quiet, awkward, and even wear glasses. I think I might even have a girl-crush on her.Look! I enjoyed the volume so much, I even made some fan art of it! (Be warned, though, it's very old - circa 2011 or 2012 - so that also means it's very crappy!)Since I've mostly been reading it online, though, I've now been wanting to actually buy a copy of my own, since it's now licensed in the U.S. Perhaps when November rolls by, that'd be the right timing for this feel-good, humorous book.And now, to end this review with a more recent drawing of Nagato that clearly looks nothing like the ones above:["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Loved it, much less confusing than the melancholy of Haruchi-chan, can't wait to read more abou Yuki-chan and the literature club.

    Takes the characters from Suzumiya Haruhi casting Nagato Yuki as a shy bookworm with a crush on Kyon. The universe also seems to suffer from the male version of the Smurfette syndrome (or onegina?) with Mikuru also being pushed towards Kyon. Ryuoko Asakura acts as Nagato's spokesman while Tsuruya is Mikuru's. Nagato is the one who helps Haruhi with her endeavours in this one.... It just doesn't feel that interesting. It reads like a typical comedy romance, with nothing that interesting about it. Maybe it'll get better later on? Not sure if I'll read a second volume.

    Review by A.J.: "It was weird."

    This Series is rated Older Teen for Language and possibly sexual situations (at one point Yuki is partially exposed because her friend wants to clean her shirt due to a stain and they both forgot there was a guy in the room. Seriously though after going through the first book this series is mild compared to some of th fan service in manga. I can imagine at some point there might be some kind of groping or another so if that bothers you don't read this series.Picking up in a an alternate universe where Yuki is a normal girl and Haruhi Suzumiya is not an all powerful person who accidentally affects the world around her without knowing. Yuki is a cute character compared to the emotionless android girl/alien in the original series, I had no problem reading this book and being reintroduced to all the old characters as if they were simply a slice of life even though they have already experienced many things in their adventures in the original series.My favorite part of the book is how the artist has the various characters show their expressions leaving nothing to chance when figuring out what is on their minds. This is especially rue considering Yuki is much more emotional then her original. :)

    I'll probably continue to read the series, because Yuki is my favorite character in the Haruhi universe. That said, I wasn't too fond of the manga style, which differs a bit much from the anime stylings/original manga in my eyes (it's a little more chibi, and not necessarily in a good way?). Also, Yuki is a little TOO human perhaps? In the main series, I was anxious for her to show a human side, and gleeful when "emotions" began showing through. Obviously, if this side story takes place during the Disappearance arc, she would be fully human, but I don't know....I think I just was overloaded by the range of emotions she suddenly showed. For example, in the anime film "Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya" Yuki becomes human but the changes in her character are far more subtle and I liked them better that way. Also, Kyon's personality in this is weird. I miss the snarky attitude!

    The spin-off, I think is what they called this, with the same characters from Haruhi Suzumiya but with a different plot. Romantic comedy with the stress on the romance, which made it quite disappointing. The other spin-off, Haruhi-chan was more fun and the explanation was of course the lack of Haruhi Suzumiya in this spin-off. I don't care about shy quiet girl even if she is cute, because Yuki-chan's cuteness apparently does not work on me. Which is why despite my disappointment I probably am going to read the next installment because Haruhi is finally making her appearance.Weirdly enough, I am not a fan of Haruhi Suzumiya the anime. I guess I am in the mood for manga and this happened to be conveniently lying around in the library.

    I am so sad to have not liked this book. I don't particularly like either of the characters in this story, even though I think I should have. Also, the way the pictures are in this story, it is very difficult to identify which character is which, especially when there are sound effects blocking their faces. This book should have been a cute read but I just could not like any of the characters enough to develop an attachment to the story. I think if I were younger I would have enjoyed this much more. I recommend to teens, but maybe not young adults unless you still love mangas.

    It has been quite a while since I read these, and reading them after just recently finishing the original manga was a good choice. The character designs are out of this world, and probably my favourite of any manga, and the art style is phenomenal. The story leaves behind mystery and paranormal for a more slice of life/romance focus, which is really nice.

    I would recommend this book to my class mates if they are interested in a more of a shy romantic type of story, the characters are designed beautifully, personalities are great just all around a really good book.

    The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzuyima is a poignant sci-fi coming-of-age epic that explores the anthropic principle and defamiliarizes the fragility of friendship.The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan is about a shy girl who learns not to be so shy.

    I love this alternate version of Nagato. She is so cute.

    Well this is a spin off and it's just about romance and school life, it does not have any paranormal things. But well lets see how the next volumen is.

    I had trouble believing this was the first volume - I guess I should read The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya.

    Ehhh.... This is something I would have enjoyed as a teen, but I just can't relate to it anymore.
