Ahhah, I thought the name was supposed to be feminized, but I wasn't sure. It wasn't in the Japanese, so I wrote it as it was written in katakana. As I recall, Gatoh messed up with Irina as well, by just writing Kalinin instead of... Kalinina? I'm sorry, my Russian knowledge is extremely limited ^^;
That's right, Irina Kalinina.
Some last names, like mine, are not feminized at all, but most of Slavic Russian names are.
I actually like how the names of Russian characters in FMP are not too stereotypical and, if only for such minor details as feminization requiring detailed knowledge of the language, correct. Like Stepan Ilyich Mikhailov - amazingly right name. It's tough, old-school and suits the character. Adelina's name is also really good but a bit cheesy, like Russian names in "From Russia With Love".

That would be amazing!!! <3 We have very few of the side stories translated in English. Maybe about 7 or so? Miiratori no Drunker is really hilarious, too, from what little I did stumble through. What's not to love about a drunk Kaname stealing Sousuke's weapons and grenades? XD
I am now reading it.
"That strange but sweet feeling at the tip of his nose"... - when she actually kissed him on the nose! That is priceless!

As far as I know, u will not find any other character from original FMP. But hey, it's just the beginning of the series, we still have a chance of seeing Sousuke, Kaname and their kid!

[and only the dead stand along the road with scythes... in silence (с)]
So, volume 8 of Another will be out on August, 20.
http://www.kadokawa.co.jp/lnovel/bk_...d=321405000008
Can anyone translate the text in the announcement? Googletranslate gives me some crazy interpretations.

If I'm reading it right...
"In support of Geotron's treachery, the Republic of Galnstan (Garunasutan) revolts against Russia. Caught up in the whirlpool of conspiracy, Tatsuya and the others of the reborn DOMS throw themselves into it. The end of war is complicated, will the boys see a catastrophe they couldn't have imagined?"

Waitaminute... "-stan" is a Central Asian affix. It's Kazakhstan! They are making a story about a corporate-sponsored coup in Kazakhstan. Awesome.
But... Really? REALLY???
What the hell is with all the Russia in my FMP? I'm flattered, but seriously... are we supposed to be the good guys here? Lina, Mikhailov, secondary characters with Russian names - is this Gatoh and Ooguro's idea of an exotic nationality? XD Or is it just the hottest country in the news right now?

Well the Cold War lasted longer in their world, so naturally there will be something between the western based powers and the eastern based powers still.

The girl in the Jindai uniform with the pigtails is Tatsuya's sister Yukari. I'm guessing Tatsuya missed graduation, from the looks of the picture, so I think about 8 or 9 months has passed since the series began.

I'm not sure who that is with Clara... it looks like Tatsuya to me, but I dunno why his hair wouldn't be inked when Clara's is, so maybe it is Ronny... I don't think I've seen any pics of him in Another yet, so I wouldn't recognize him all grown up. Gah. I've gotta wait a month before I can order it so I can get the FMP! tabletop book at the same time, I won't be able to poke through the book to find answers for nearly 2 months, with how long it'll take to arrive after the order Q_Q

Ahh, sorry, Esg! If you look back in this thread you'll find summaries up to volume... 4? by HunterSeeker. I don't remember how many he posted summaries of... Other than that, I'm pretty lost, since I haven't really tried sitting down and reading it myself...

I'll have better luck with the manga, at least it has furigana so I don't have to look up every other kanji x_x I wanna say the manga is now up to volume 5 of the novels...? Based on the serialization I get out of ComicWalker anyways, if I've guess right... (and one day I might actually read it instead of just talking about maybe reading it...)

Damn. I completely forgot about her. And I liked her in the first books from spoilers and pictures.

Well he sure grew up nice!

Hng, oh man, seriously... So sad that translation doesn't seem to have happened... I know a lot of things come up, and interest plays a big part in it, but it's been, what, 2 or 3 years now since it was said they'd translate it, after it won that poll? Q___Q

Yeah, Russian translation from Japanese seems to have been postponed as well.
It's painful how the novels are the perfect thing to be translated and actually won a popularity contest, but hasn't been translated anyway.
Just who do I have to appease, bribe or seduce to get it done? (-_-)

Don't think that would work. I'd recommend blackmailing, kidnapping or life-threatening instead ... you know... Sousuke style.

Yep, little rony is now a junior team leader in the navy seals, his team personally saved tatsuya and kikuno from an exploding factory and some centuria unmanned AS that they were battling in the Carpathian mountains near Romania in vol 6. Rony apparently still lives with Tessa who should be 28 years old at least by now.

The current reborn DOMS team set up is Tatsuya in assault raven 1, blue colored and Jack of all stat with some melee specialization. Blaze raven
Adelina in assault raven 2, red and firepower focused. Blast raven
Yosuf after losing his Wolf in Romania is now in assault raven 3, black and melee electronic warfare ninja. Phantom raven
Kikuno after losing her m9, basically defected to DOMS because she is semi_gauron crazy about tatsuya, plus her old bosses betrayed her and In directly caused her brother's death. Female not! Gauron is in assault raven 4,purple, heavily armoured and slow but is deadly in medium to close range combat. Aegis raven.

Then of course there is still Samira in her Zy-99M shadow. The ever loyal bodyguard/maid to prince Yusuf.

All assault ravens are equipped with a very very very shitty and simple TAROs drive which is the Japanese 's poor man's attempt at recreating the "mystery" device found in the unknown white AS that crashed in Tokyo 10 years ago. None of the assault raven pilots are aware that such things like the lambda driver exists.
Unfortunately only Chinese translation are up to speed at volume 7, with official translation currently at vol5.
