Official Announcement on 10/19:

http://kokoro-connect.com/news/

The live screening event will take place between 11/19~11/25.

Looks like the rest of us will need to wait for the BD/DVD release. Sigh.

The irony though, is that you still gotta pay for those extra episodes (the screening tickets.)

Whatever. I'll busy myself with the novels.

Hoping to finish Michi by Halloween.

So I just finished the anime and now Im once again stuck with a show that is half done and will be finished god knows when, if ever. So anyone kind enough to tell what additional material there is / if it will ever be released in english / if I can read the novel somewhere / etc etc?

Kinda afraid of getting spoilered, thats why Im asking. I know there are 5 more novels out and apparently there are russian italian and spanish translation. So there has to be an english one right? And there is a manga as well? And will there ever be a second season?

Thanks for helping me, Im kinda confused :P

English translation at Baka Tsuki
Volume 4 progress ON THE SITE is at 23% of chapter 7 at the moment.

The remaining parts of chapter 7 as well as chapter 8, 9 and Epilogue will be updated in these two days (I'm almost done with it.)

Woooooooooooooot!! Even though I knew the ending after having browsed through the Chinese version, it was still a good read in English. Thanks for the translation!

Your welcome! I hope my awkward Engrish didn't ruin the reading. I had a bit of trouble translating some parts of chapter 7 (and many others) into natural Englsih due to language differences and my lack of training in English.

Anyway,

For English readers.

Volume 4, Michi Random has been officially completed and translated! Otsukaresama deshita!

Sorry for the awful delay guys!

Hurricane on the East coast last week + Translator's block on ch.7 kinda ruined my progress

Anyway. The next part I'm working on will be Pentagon++, the fourth short story of Volume 5 Clip time, as well as the direct continuation of Michi Random which introduces two new important characters. 128 pages here I come!

Heya.

Pudding said he was going to be busy with school and could only participate on BT as an editor until next May.

About the pdf, I'm afraid I'm not the man for that job. Not to mention I still need to do quite a bit of revising (trust me, my translations are littered with glaring grammatical errors and flow awkwardness ,) so I'll need a bit of time. So if you could bear with my personal OCD for a bit, once it's done, I'll see if I can ask arcxyz to help us out with the pdf.

I'm in the same form (grade) as Pudding, so I know the situation he's in.
The HKDSE is a b****, but it's for university, and we have 3 years of curriculum to study for, so...

I'll try my best. But after (if) I finish translating Kizu Random, I don't think Clip Time (SS1) or the rest have come out in Chinese yet...

Also, checked back to the Yochi Random website, and...

WTF?!

Actually, Clip Time, Nise and the first 5 chapters of Yume have already been translated in Chinese.

Oh, you mean the internet-translated version. I was actually talking about the official release (I like buying the official version of franchises I like), but if those are okay too, then I guess I'll work on those also (after Kizu Random, I mean).

Internet translations are fine. In fact there are parts where they are actually slightly more accurate (I have quite a few complains with the official Michi's translation), while sacrificing some of the flow, which means you do need to do some juggling with words on your own. That being said, having both versions is a plus as you can compare them and adjust accordingly.

The gap between Inaban and Biribiri/Asuna is still pretty huge...

Not huge surprise that she jumped Niku and Kuroneko anyway. Not huge difference between girls after 2nd place anyway (Kamimemo don't have a new volume the whole year = no Alice ). I have to search the exact number again (It's somewhere on the net...the 2ch post doesn't have it yet and I can't see from the scan).

[OT]Kuroyukihime jumps more anyway from 23rd to 4th this year. Shinon from 12th to 7th, Kirino drop a place, Yozora stays at 10th...

On the other hand, Haganai LN drops quite a bit, but then, there's only 1 volume the whole year...[/OT]

lol...

There's no competing with those first two places. Reason why it surprises me is that I didn't expect kokoroco to have enough of a fanbase to even have any characters up there when compared to other ones like Oreimo or Boku wa Tomodachi sukunai (just look at the amount of discussions in different language forums.)

I believe Teh Ping posted those votes/scores in
this thread.

Dereban was 6th place last year before the Anime had aired, so she definitely had a foothold in the top ten already. You might be intersted to know that the Illustrator for Kokoro Connect, Shiromizakana won 4th place this year.

A bit of trivia, it was only this year that I found out that last year's ranking puts Taichi barely on the edge at 30th for Male characters category

btw, if you want to know the full top 60 list, I've posted it here
