^There's a grapevine that Sensei wants to start a new series. Take this with the amount of salt you find in a McD french fries.

And vol 12 is delayed. Damn it! I was really looking forward to my Eid entertainment

Also, the Barbarusa's crews are making their appearances in the movie. [akiman's sketch]. ......The hell Nora?

ps: This thread is going nowhere. Perhaps we should really consider starting a translation project?

Just to be certain which label belongs to whom, is the bald one Nora's anime design?

Understood.

Hmm, if I recall correctly it was being considered at BT, though I don't think it got anywhere in the end.

Judging from the information you know of, what sort of temporal circumstances do you reckon are being dealt with here (e.g. a predestination loop or fixing divergence)?

An article regarding MiniPi going for a break. [animeanime]

Some tweets from Matsumoto, the LN artist, also confirming MiniPi is taking a breather.
Sasamoto-sensei would like the fans to treat the first dozen of the books as the first season.

Well, I suppose that puts part of that earlier grapevine to rest...

Edit: Had a look at Amazon and 2ch to see what little information I could extract (not certain how accurate it is):

Spoiler for V12 Information (Validity uncertain):

Damn it. My local Kino wrongly wrote the ISDN No for my order of MiniPi vol 12 and ARIEL Reprint vol 08 (9784022760135 and 9784022738523, where the '2's before the '7's were written as '7's). The remaning of ARIEL will sky in first, it seems.

I could only laughed with the person who wrote the order >.>.
It's probably going to be another 2 weeks before the books arrive, which makes it a month of wait. Damn it!!!

That aside, when I was watching the Marvel movie, the first thing that came to mind when I saw Knowhere was the Skull Star.

Here hoping for a new season of MoPi, because Mikako-shi can't land a lead heroine role in LN adaptations. <.<

Welp. Had the book arrived earlier, I may be able to read and write something, but since I'm in a middle of the next phase of my life, I have to sort my priorities.

The least I can is that I don't like how the illustrations of the characters have regressed (IMO) during the 6 years. I would have also preferred if there were more illustrations on the mechanics. (I really want to see the book scanner at the start of vol 10 )

At least I can get my hands on Sensei's past work: Komusume Over Drive

If the story isn't really going anywhere, he might as well.

I wonder though, is that really the case?

What do you reckon, justpassingby? What signs can you see?

I don't know. Sensei's new work: ARIEL SS Galaxy Arc
is slated for November release under Asaha Aero Bunko (new label?). [ranobe mori] [tsutaya]

Looking back at ARIEL's past releases record, I'd say he has been working for this new book for quite some time while doing MiniPi

Hmm...

Just wondering, what loose ends would you say still need tying up?

Also, what was the reason why that document in Volume 8 was still valid?

Rejoice! MiniPi is stratified as first in popularity ranking for Light Novels 2014 for Male over 60 years old. [booklive] ₍ (ง ˙ω˙)ว ⁾⁾.

Huh? How do they even calculate the numbers? I guess the joke in 2ch saying that xx% of people buying the MoPi BD were fans of Yousei Sakusen, HoshiPi, ARIEL were true.
It reminds me of Natsucon last year where I could swear people attending the talk have grey hair .

I guess it's not too late to adapt other books from Sensei, considering the Japanese people do live long, and also prosper I hope.
