5 Centimetres Per Second Novel English Translation Completed

Finally got round to picking up the half done translation. Pretty hard to believe it's been two years since then. Time flies, eh? If I wasn't a software developer myself it would have been quite tricky translating all the parts about programming. Other than the finished translation, you'll also find I've added Shinkai's Twitter feed...


Official Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero Novel Gets Drama CD

Can't get enough of the FFXIII story? Well, "Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero - Promise", a set of novellas that take place before the events of the main game, has been freely available for reading online for some time now. Only chapter one of the story "Encounter" came on a bonus drama CD with the 5 disc, First Press Limited Edition of the...


Two New Beast Player Erin Novels Published

I bought the original two volumes of the Beast Player Erin novels thinking that was it finished but, looks like the author released another two just last month to round off the story - The Quest Arc and The Final Arc. This suggests we could see a season two of the show since the current 50 episode series is only looking to encompass the first...


Erin The Beast Player, Novel and Anime Comparison Vol. 1

I've been reading through the first Kemono no Souja, Erin novel now that the show is pass the half way mark and I thought I would run a comparison between the Anime and the book itself.

A Peek Inside the FFVII On the Way to a Smile and Beast Player Erin Novels

Looks like I didn't have to wait long for my novels after all... Look what the postman dropped off this morning. EMS is expensive but you have to admit it really is quick - Quicker than air mail. Dispatched from HMV Japan and arrives in the UK the next day. I knew FFVII On the Way to a Smile is in hardback but, I didn't know the Beast Player Erin...


FFVII On the Way to a Smile Novel Out of Stock

Decided to put in an order for the Beast Player Erin and FFVII On the Way to a Smile novels since I couldn't get them while I was in HK but, it looks like I'm going to have to wait a while because Square-Enix is currently out of print so I will probably get a second batch copy like I did with Makoto Shinkai's 5cm novel. Oh well, at least HMV Japan...


FFVII On the Way to a Smile, Now in Hardback with New Stories

Never knew they released this on the same day as the Blu-ray release of FFVII Advent Children Complete until Amazon JP's automated service recommended it to me today... They just had to do it after I bought all the other books that contained the stories separately. They really know how to squeeze money out of their fans. Anyway, this 263...
