I am busy as bees and as tired as a panda right now, so I don't feel like writing a long post, but might as well post the illustrations from vol 9 (since the movie poster is up)

Picture courtesy of my horrendous camera skill.

When I created the Yousei Sakusen thread in celebration of Sensei's 50th birthday, I did went through vol 4.
Spoiler for because it is a different novel:
Too bad Nobu went first, but oh well, at least Japanese space pirates are 12 light years away after 50,000 years :P.

In other news, last part of Hoshi no Pilot volume 2 will be on sale March 19. I would recommend to purchase the books that won the Seiun Award even though you could get the first printings on the internet just for the extra explanations and new illustrations

Disable the chroniton filter on the forward navigational deflector, and the time-dilation of plying back and forth at Warp 1 for 50,000 years will ensure he only ages 6 years.

Is that Chiaki in a black dress?

I really wish this one gets a translation or gets more attention. More attention leads to possible translation. Its such a waste to leave it be because the story is interesting and so far has a solid plot and setting for me to like .

Black Beard. Chiaki was angry that her father was late.
...Probably she was also angry because Marika forced her to wear the dress. Of course with some persuasions from the Princess.

Writing this post to notify fans that there will be an event tomorrow.

[NicoNico]
SF大会超体験版@ニコニコ超会議2 April 28th
Time: 1200-1700 pm Japan time

The guests for the first segment, Mouretsu? Miniskirt? Uchuu Kaizoku (1200 - 1300) are
- Sasamoto Yuuichi (SF author MiniPi, ARIEL, HoshiPi etc)
- Satou Tatsuo (director Stellvia, Tobe! Isami, MoPi etc)
MC will be Hikawa Ryuusuke (anime critic and writer).

This will be the first time Sensei and the Director are in the same talk event relating to MiniPi/MoPi. Both of them already met at TOKON10 in 2010.
The following hours will involve other SF authors. Make sure not to miss them all.

Not exactly related, but on the same day tomorrow there will be also a function called NicoNico Super Anime Song Festival [link] and Komatsu Mikako is participating. because I've already double post in the anime thread :P

edit:
And here we go [link]

Some info from the event:
Spoiler for Oi poor Hikawa-san:
- Chibi Maruko? Marika? wwwwwww
- Sensei is pretty good at conducting the lucky draw and as a MC wwww. I want to see him and Mikako-shi in a same event.

Just wondering, what did the business with the framing and the perpetrator turn out to be?

^Watched the movie last Friday (slowpork I know). I really liked the part when Jimbo and Khan went jumping from a moving car, off a bridge and into a shot glass. :P

If my memory serves me right, Marika and Gruelle maneuvered inside the Serenity Generational Space Ship using air guns they obtained inside the ship. I would have preferred if they had animated that instead of the tennis racquets

I don't have internet at my home right now (posting from a cybercafe with the book not in my hand), but here a gist about Chapter 1 vol 9.

Spoiler for Vol 09 Chapter 1: Distress Signal From The DARKNESS :P :

Oh, and Marika started her lines in this book with "Eh?".
...As expected from my Captain.

With that being said, HoshiPi vol 3 New Printing will go on sale in July. RanobeMori indicates that vol 3 (High Frontier) and vol 4 (Blue Planet) of the old printing will be bundled as vol 3.

IIRC, the end of HoshiPi got something to do with sending probe to Tau Ceti to search for habitable planets.
I remember reading someone from 2ch was getting 'tired' of the news of possibility of habitable planets , because it's not like we're going there in our lifetime. ;_;

Thanks for the info.

This should be interesting...

(Regarding Volume 9, was there satisfactory payback in the end?)

Forget Marika. I'm more interested in Jenny and Lynn.

Barubarusa was sank so that she could be returned back to her Captain. No ship should go down without her Captain after all

Spoiler for Vol 09 Chapter 1: Distress Signal From The Darkness:

I am very happy that there are other fans, especially Inept Forum User that updates the MoPi/MiniPi wiki. I wished I could contribute, but time is not on my side. I'm writing a report-like Chapter 1 while waiting for today's Fifa Confederations Cup. So I can't really promise when the next chapter will be posted, or if it is going to be posted at all.

I also really wanted to start the Kaminai LN, because the Captain is singing the ED theme and voicing a princess.

So yeah. Sorry for not contributing properly

edit:
Spoiler for Vol 10 Chapter titles:

That's alright, justpassingby.

I too am happy that there are other fans around, and I'm grateful to be able to communicate with someone who has read the novels and can impart information about them.

Many thanks for the information that you have provided us.

Spoiler for ^:


Regarding the chapter titles of Vol 10. I think the girls of Yacht Club are in for the ride of their lifetime. May be they'll get to see the closing days of the War for Independence.

Crack theory: Odette I was Odette II, and because Captain Suzuka saw Odette I, she took the number II

Indeed - I wonder what caused the time slip (perhaps something to do with that booster they were meant to be investigating?).

Spoiler for ^:


You mentioned before that Jackie is fairly neurotic and paranoid. What are Noel and Muller like?

Got these from 2ch Sasamoto-sensei thread post no. 488:

Spoiler for New characters:

We The Enemy is The Pirate now? Get me a talking cat.

Gah! I hope it won't be long before I could get my hand on the latest print. I just placed an order for the novel and started my subscriptions for Febri (Akiman's illustrations) and Seiyuu Grand Prix (Mikako-shi is getting a monthly section) yesterday, literally.

By gawd, how much story gap between the anime and the novels? I barely understand any of this! @_@

From some of the comments from 2ch regarding Vol 10.
..........Too many spelling errors/lack of proper editing etc. Reminds me of the Female Phoenix and Male Phoenix from the Hakuou.

Too many explanations, (it was the case for the previous 9 volumes). Reading MiniPi does give a different feeling from reading other LNs, although if I remember correctly, Matsumoto Noriyuki (LN artist) did say that it is not a LN, when MiniPi vol 8 was ranked top 10 among LNs from a certain bookshop. Too lazy to search for his tweet.
There are people that were happy with vol 9, as the effects of the anime are felt in Sensei's writing. I'd wager that vol 10 is back to his normal writing, and readers don't like that?

Just started Kami-nai. These are the middle pages of MiniPi Vol 9 and Kami-nai Vol 1 for comparison.

Kami-nai top, MiniPi bottom

Though I don't think you can compare much :P.

I purposely picked the middle of the novel, because Black Baba (Black Old Hag), the Vice Principal of Hakuou Girls Academy is mentioned there. And according to some post from 2ch, Black Baba is probably

Just wondering, does it say where the first bit of that nickname comes from? Also, was it confirmed what exactly caused the time slip?

Indeed, quite a considerable difference between the covers of Volumes 1 and 10.

Edit: One more thing I would like to check - is this story arc a one volume arc?
