Is it too much to ask for a little peace and quiet around here?
I mean, it's cool that my old pal Sasaki showed up out of the blue, but now Mori-san's blackmailing Tachibana, Fujiwara's being a general pain in the butt, and Kuyoh--who's a cat for some reason --is clinging to Kimidori-san. Amid the chaos, the SOS Brigade's final line of defense and the individual most responsible for my own sense of well being, Nagato, is downright...cheerful? More characters, more gags, and more narration from Kyon in this volume!

It's a shock that there's a freshman willing to take on Haruhi's Brigade Entrance Examination!But it's just as much a delight to finally have someone willing to fight against the tyranny of the straight man... Or so one would hope. With Yasumi Watahashi now on the scene, Kyon's straight man game is soaring to new heights, Asahina is going crazy, and Haruhi is acting more like a Brigade Chief than ever before! And what of the feline-ified Kuyoh at Nagato's house--when Kyon faces off with her, what could his fate possibly be!?

Huzzah! There are now ten volumes of Haruhi gags!
Between the SOS Brigade, the Sasaki Brigade, the Nagato household, and the members of the Agency, the tenth volume of the comedic misadventures of Haruhi and friends is more crowded than ever.
