Lovely Strange Dark picked this up, so they’ll release chapters whenever if they’re still working on it.
V.1 – Mushi to Uta (Insects and Songs)
“The Lover of Stars”, a story spelling out the writer’s feelings for the little sister born from his fingers. “The Hinoshita Siblings”, a moving story about the relationship between a highschool baseball player with an injured shoulder and “Hina”, who continues to grow. “Violite”, which describes the meeting of two people involved in a plane accident. Finally, “Insects and Songs”, a shocking work that won the Shikitaishou award. These four stories, painting a picture of a unique setting and the bonds between various lifeforms who live in it, are recorded here. This is the long awaited first volume released by a new author rapidly growing in popularity as each of her sensational stories are published in monthly “Afternoon” magazine!!
V.2 – 25-Ji no Vacances (25-Hour Vacation)
Marine biologist Nishi Otome takes time off and reunites with her brother, Kotaro, for the first time in a while. He sees her at the 25th hour of the night with shellfish taking over her body in “25 Hour Vacation”. The meeting between the delinquent, Nana, and a strange transfer student to “Pandora Women’s College” located on a satellite of Saturn is described in “On Pandora”. In “The Funeral of the Moon”, a genius highschooler begins living with a lone man in the deep snows of the north.
Sixteen years after the laws to ban dirty jokes were enacted, Japan has become a perfectly sound yet boring society.
This is a story of two rebels against the status quo, via obscene acts of terrorism.
Looks like the group that picked this up has stalled, so go offer them help if you want to.
Money is buried in the ground!
Natsunosuke Bonda is a relief pitcher in Tokyo Spiders. In his eighth pro season, he makes 18 million yen at age 26. But he is always troubled by how little he makes, given that he is surrounded by high income earning baseball players.
This is a relief pitcher’s story in Nippon Pro Baseball, his envies, worries, sweat and tears.
When Fujiwara Motomu was first introduced to live rock music, he decided it was amazing and he wanted to be a part of it! He ran into a band member from “Blue Bears” (the band he first saw live) at a convenience store, and begged the band member to let him join. The band member told him that if he could get the top rank at the Japan Academy of Music (J.A.M.), he could join them.
Fujiwara (nicknamed Fuji Cue) immediately started practicing guitar, and somehow managed to pass the entrance exam for the J.A.M.. At the entrance ceremony, he found that he would be paired with another student, and they would be required to give a live performance at the Welcome Convention. His partner, Hoshikawa Uta, is an incredibly talented girl, who suffers from crippling stage fright. Will they make it through their live performance, and will he be able to achieve his dream of getting to the top? [tethysdust]
