In this fourth volume, the first with all new material for me, Nagaru Tanigawa sets up an It's a Wonderful Life scenario where Kyon wakes up in a world (not quite) without Haruhi Suzumiya and he's the only one who remembers how things should be.

Filled with Kyon's typical sardonic self-narrative that he occasionally speaks out loud, yet somehow this story really finds a heart as he learns who is behind the change, just how much he misses the world from which he came, and, ultimately, that he has the power to decide how the world will be, including understanding what consequences that will bring.

Despite its typical Japanese young adult fare, Nagaru Tanigawa cleverly slips nice subtle moments throughout. A great volume in a very good series.
