A quick question, but how far off is the current manga from reaching the last two part novel of the series?

In Japanese? It's 3 chapters in (manga chapters, that is, not that it's done with 3 chapters of the novel). In English? 20 chapters to go.

I'd appreciate if you could work on what's left of it, assuming the books mention the dates, that is.

Doing the estimates in my head, because they get a little less specific later on in the series. And I haven't read them in something like 2 or 3 years, so... I'm a tad fuzzy.

Also, the series started in 1998, not 1997. (The Whispereds were born 1981, they turn 17 the same year the series started out in. Understandable mistake though, since they don't have their bday until the very end of the year, so you really want to count them as being 16 that year ^^)

1999
June/July - Tsudou Make My Day

October - Semaru Nick of Time

2000
January~March - Zutto Stand By Me

The only thing I'm pretty sure on is that it ended in March, since that's usually when graduation is, if memory serves me. The rest are estimates, but I can say they're close enough guesses to fly, just might be off a month or so on any of 'em.

1991
Kidnapping of Leonard Testarossa.


I always thought it happened in early 1993, as Mardukas found out about the death of Carl Testarossa and his wife and the disappearance of their kids in early 1993.

And there's also dates like:


1983 - the news of "Alaskian wonder-child" and first AS development projects.

1985 - Soviet submarine K-244 and Kalinin as part of the crew find Sosuke (about 4 years old) in a crashed plane in the middle of the ocean

1989 - Kalinin finds out that Sosuke is being trained as part of the "Knife" special unit for child soldiers.

1991 - nuclear conflict in the Middle East and the prevention of the fall of the USSR. Soviet Army returns to Afghanistan.

1992 - Kalinin meets Sosuke and betrays USSR by joining the rebels.

1993 - Mardukas is nearly discharged from the Royal Navy and finds out about the death of his friend Carl Testarossa. Later he is offered to join Mithril.

1996 - Sosuke is a mercenary in Birma.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

If I remember correctly for 1991 it's because the nuclear bomb used during the Gulf War was protected by ECS given to Amalgam by Leonard after he has been kidnapped.

I have done this time-line some times ago (probably late 2007 or early 2008), when some of the info (like : Birth of the TDD) weren't translated so it's possible that some mistake are present.

I'll release the new spoilers for FMP:A and Tessa's short story after I finish my bath. Just came back from a whole-day trip from protest to beach play......

Bah, I'd even checked to make sure it'd work before posting and it seemed fine right off. Fixed, at any rate.

Sounds good, HunterSeeker! ^^ Looking forward to it~

At first that would work because your browser will take the image in your cache instead of trying to retrieve from the host so it's always better to use an image host

Some early new stuff for FMP:A and Tessa-only's short. Note that FMP:A's names are now official if they didn't appear before.

Spoiler for FMP:A primary spoilers:


Spoiler for the short:

Picture later if someone doesn't get them first.

I thought I said before that the short will not feature them at all yes?
Still not sure about Another, but unlikely.

I am disappointed that Kurtz isn't with Mao. But the million dollar question is...

Where is our hero and heroine?! are they together still?! Where is Sousuke and Chidori?!?!?!( ;Д`)

Ono-D is
Spoiler:


So far no mention of Sousuke or Kaname that I can see. This is from reading the Japanese wiki on Another. ...Hopefully we'll at least HEAR about them Q_Q If nothing else..... Must know....

Thanks for the info, HunterSeeker! ^^

I'm looking forward to reading the new short story novel. It'll have that 300 Bonta-Kun story, but it also has a couple other stories that were run in the magazine but never in a novel. Can't wait to read them~~ One of them involves an Airsoft club at Jindai, that Sousuke apparently has some ridiculous joining requirements XDDD I can't wait to read that one, bwahahahah.
