The new novel is titled "The Intuition of Haruhi Suzumiya (Suzumiya Haruhi no Chokkan)" consisting of 3 stories which was the very first after 9.5 years since the original series ended.
The full 250-page novel consists of 3 stories: two previously published short stories and one all-new story. The new story is titled "Tsuruya's Challenge (Tsuruya-san no Chōsen)" and the two previously published short stories collects the "Seven Wonders Overtime (Nana Fushigi Overtime)" that debuted in Kadokawa's one-time The Sneaker Legend magazine in 2018, and the "Atezuppo Numbers" (Guesswork Numbers) short story that appeared in Noizi Ito's artbook that Kadokawa published in 2013.
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya TV anime series premiered in 2006 in a non-linear order of 2 seasons, and was rebroadcast in 2009 in a new chronological order with new episodes. Kyoto Animation animated both seasons of the series.
The novels have also inspired a manga, spinoff manga and an anime film "The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya" which opened in Japan last 2010.
