Does she get more dere-dere in the novels?
No. Not really.
There's maybe one epic dere dere scene, but then she's like "I WOULD OF DONE IT FOR EVERYONE ELSE, IT WAS MY RESPONSBILITY AS SOS BRIGADE LEADER I HATE YOU"
find out yourself:
What the fuck does that mean?
Also, I forgot this scene.
Read them anyways. If the anime doesn't go on long enough, it'll never get to the good part.
The Barrel Roll of Haruhi Suzumiya?
I heard Disappearance is the best Volume...truth?
Fuck it's the one error that haunts me forever. HURRRRRRRR
From my tastes, I recall 4, 7 and 8 being awesome. Four being disappearance (I believe).
If anything she's more tsun in the novels.
Im currently reading through the novels. I can say that i HOPE some of it gets into the anime, and im only on volume2, chapter 2.
