The first volume released in 2009 in a co-publishing agreement between Yen Press and Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

Adaptations of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya include an anime produced by Kyoto Animation and several manga series released by Yen Press, the first of which began publication in 2008. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya has stood out as one of the most iconic properties in the light novel, manga and anime space for more than a decade.
