Oh, I'd also rather buy it in a bookstore. XD I mean I love bookstores. I guess next time I just order it in one of them here. But normally Amazon should be faster, especially when you preorder something like months in advance. X'D

I'm glad I can buy the German version in a bookstore now.

Thank you *hugs you back* (*_*) I also wish you good luck when you have to hunt for jobs. Will you stay in the Netherlands then?

(Ah btw German version... @lawl, I'm sorry, but I couldn't manage to get another NezuShi paper bag. At least not in the train station where I got my bag. I'll try it in the bookstore in the city when I have to go there the next time, but I dunno if they have NezuShi bags there as well...(._.))

That's one thing I'll miss - the bookstores. There's this big one in the city center that has like four floors and a whole section of the most lovely editions of classics, and ahh. (Nezumi would have a field day ;))
But yeah, Amazon should usually be fast with pre-orders, shouldn't it? I hope they'll hurry up!

*hugs back!* Thanks~ yeah, I'm going back to the Netherlands in December and stay there for the foreseeable future. I miss it too much after all.

Ahh, I'm very curious to hear more about the German release once they get further into the series! Keep us up to date?

Luxembourg is soooooo stupid ohmygod. Anyway. I guess they compensate their lack of THINGS with an administrative system which actually WORKS very well.

(I'm so unmotivated this week it's absolutely horrible, I think I'll stay home today again and maybe finally start playing FFX HD. Tomorrow I'll have no 1person-lunch left so I'll be forced to go out lol)

Yay @listenforthelove for going back home! You need it :) I hope you'll find something good over there!

And same, I'll be very interested to learn more about the German translation as it comes out, @lawlya and @Ahiku!

Woah, amazing! *_* But the bookstores here aren't that bad either. The city I live in is a big city, but not that big. A few years ago we had 3 big book stores in the city center (+ several little shops + another few bookshops in the big shopping centers in the new town part and other parts outside of the city. Those in the city center all had 3 floors. Now there's just one of them left. A friend of mine worked in one of them who are closed now, but she already lived somewhere else when they shut it down to open a horribly expensive fashion shop instead.
(She was also funny... worked there and bought mangas in the other, competing book shop. ^^°) But well, it's fine as long as there's at least one of them. We also have a little comic shop. Totally nerdy. XD One time in the past one of my classmates wanted to buy copics there. (I used them a lot in the past and bought them in this shop... my classmate wasn't into manga or anime, she just wanted copics.) Then she told me she couldn't go in there because she was scared and wanted me to escort her, lol XD Because the owner looks like heavy metal...hard rock something... with black clothes, beard, sometimes sunglasses, wrispbands with spikes and so one. ^^° But he's not scary at all, just horrible. One time I went there together with my mom when I was 16-17 or so and bought a boy's love manga. And he was like: "Oh, why do so many girls like you want to read that ass **** stuff?" X'D God thing, my mom didn't hear it. That was horrible. Really... horrible guy!

Ah, I got my copy today. PIN AG managed it to put it in my mail box (and I wasn't able to get it out properly <_<). So this time it worked just well...

Did they at least sent your copies today, lawl and yuneyn? oo° When did you order them? Mabye that's one of the reasons...?

@Yuneyn and @listenforthelove
Yeah, of course we'll do. ^^ It's interesting to compare everything. Ohhh, I'm so curious what they'll do concerning Inukashi's gender. (>,<)

Oh I'm glad you got it this time!!!!

They didn't even send mine, it's scheduled to arrive November 6th... Well last time they changed the date around August 26th so I've still hope. I've ordered it October 7th... don't know why it's so stupid (>_<)
Well for people who'd order now they're out of stock.. but I don't think this should affect the preorders too?

@Ahiku: So, I have looked it up on Amazon and it says the manga is being delivered on Friday - so, tomorrow ^^ Apparently it wasn't send out yet and that's why I didn't receive a mail :)

Yeah, it's great to see No.6 in our bookstores too. I squealed a bit but it was too empty for many people to notice xD
Oh, thank you for asking though OTL It's really mean that we in Berlin don't get those D:

Actually, most Heavy Metal fans are really nice and cool people ^^ At least those I got introduced to xD Though they liked to think that I don't like their music even if I never lost a word about that. Oh, well ...
Okay, how the hell did you get your copy before me? Is everything against me now? (I really hope it's in the mail tomorrow ... Saturday is AniMaCo so I don't have time to read it then >.> Or to cry ... Whatever might happen xD) I ordered the 9th Volume along with the 8th at least - maybe even when I preordered the 7th ...

I'm actually very very anxious over the German translation xD There's so much that could go horribly wrong >.>"



@listenforthelove: Okay, I definitely have to go to Starbucks and look if that Pumpkin Spice Latte is available in Germany too *w* That sounds really delicious <3

... Now I want to live in an English country too - buying No.6 in a bookstore sounds heavenly OTL
That bookstore really sounds amazing! I mean, we have a few like that in Berlin too but ... our bookstores usually don't hold such a big collection of classics ever.

And good luck finding a job :D

@Lawl
Did you get your volume today? o.o

Hehe, yeah, I also wanted to scream, but I did it just internally. Too many people. XD And I bought it in our very small main station book store (It was bigger back then, it even had 2 floors... but now it's really small ^^° Too bad.) But at least they have two bookshelves full of the latest manga volumes.

Ah, I don't know heavy metal people, but I'm normally not prejudiced like that girl who was afraif of going in there because he looked a little bit dangerous. X'D

@Ahiku: Yeah, I actually got it and read it and let's see how well I'm going to sleep tonight xD I tend to be overwhelmed by my feelings when I'm about to fall asleep ^^". But Amazon still didn't send me an email that it was send or anything. It's really odd but what do I care? It was in the mail so I'm happy :)

I bought it before an exam ... It was around 8:30 or something so there really weren't many people. The bookstore just opened too.

Yeah, they look really intimidating. I can totally feel with that friend of yours xD But as I said: Most of them seem to be really nice ^^ Softies.

You guys are so lucky that the German translation a) exists and b) the names aren't messed up. Every time I look at the English manga and see "Rat" I just cry a little inside. Doesn't stop me from wanting the entire manga anyway ;A;
Maybe I'll buy the French novels... (In which Shion is referred to as "Aster" *gag*)

Oh goodness, every time I think about all the No. 6 merch I could have but don't, I just....
All I have is an 8.5 x 11 poster which I printed off on my family's colour printer and put on my bookshelf... at least it's official art... coloured by a fan... I'm cry.

Actually, does official No. 6 merch even exist? The only stuff I've heard about are various (often incomplete) translations of things and the No. 6 guides in Japanese. When I was at Otakon I saw some posters, though.

What is this talk of No. 6 bags? Are they, like, giving them out or something? What now? The fact that they exist just isn't even fair xD

Also why are we talking about heavy metal because I have some on my Nezushi playlist bye I mean what

@Lawlya: Good you have it now. :3 Oh...and your book stores open up early. The main station book store opens up at 6 am or so, but the big one in the city center not until 9.30am. It really sucks when you're so early in the city (e.g. because of an appointment).

@Vox: Ah, yeah, Yuneyn said that Shion is called Aster in the French novel translation. Just... why. ^^° Shion is a **** personal name, just leave it be. And Nezumi, too.
Ah, she also told me she found nearly no merch in Tokyo. Not even there. Nothing but a cute little keychain.

The bag looked like that:


Sorry, it's pretty ugly... XD I don't have a camera (ok I have one but it's broken...), so I can't take a photo. The real paper bag one looks way better. But it's just like that. I got it when I bought the first volume, but Lawl didn't and she's living in a way bigger city than me and didn't get one. I don't really get it. ^^° They promoted it a little bit, too. There was a little flag, saying it's a new series... which was strange, because they don't normally do this.

@Ahiku
Interesting. I smell a market.
Elanra said that the number of fans is increasing, not decreasing, and given that a new translation just came out, I'm inclined to believe that's true. What I'm wondering is, will there eventually be any merch? I'm just curious to see how this fandom is going to evolve!
Saying it's a new series is a lie, haha. New to Germany is more like it!

What's up with that empty bubble thing over the text on the picture? (Also, thanks for showing me! :)

Yeah, I think so, too. I don't think Germany is the only country where they'll start to publish the manga. A lot of people will read the manga first. That's a good thing. :3 I hope that we'll be able to find a lot of nice fanarts on Animexx (it's a German, pretty big anime and manga website). I've already checked the No. 6 fanart section. It's pretty small, mostly Lancha's art. And most of it is from the time the anime aired. But maybe we'll find some nice new fanart there, soon.

Haha, yes, more new to Germany. Uhhhm, that white bubble is a hole where you can grab the bag to carry it, something like a handle. I'll take a photo as soon as I've a new camera. (But that might take a while...)

I don't think they'll start to produce merchandise now... at least not in Japan. ^^°

OMG how are there so many new posts everywhere when I just woke up!! (I'll answer later today because I have to leave soon - weekends are not the best time for me somehow... less free time)

About the merch, yeah, there was barely anything in Tokyo. Seeing how they do things there though, I guess there might have been some around the time the anime came out. But usually they tend to sell whatever's new and popular at the moment , or things that are really classic, such as One Piece. I found a keychain in a doujin store, but that was only one time and not official merch. The only official thing I got was I guess the postcard that came with the Volume 9 manga/drama CD then.

And yes, Shion as 'Aster' *punches a wall* I will forever be boycotting such translation. Not that I would have any inclination to read it in French though, it's kind of like how I can't read fanfiction in French... I don't know, it just makes me fee extremely awkward.

Anyway... I'll go... try not to die at the gym... Talk to you later :-)

Oh oh-- oh! Oh!
OH.
Oh hi.

I see the forum's back, oh this is exciting!

Sorry about my inactivity, I'm in several shows now and my life consists of rehearsals and sometimes food-- sometimes. Ahiku mentioned the forum might be active and I was like oh really but I didn't check but then I saw that post and well now here I am.
(How 'bout that run-on sentence? Truly magnificent.)

BUT YES. I am totally around, lurking in the shadows watching everyone with all this pent up affection in my heart even though I don't really talk to you guys that often

Yes.
...Yes.
...Hi.

How 'bout that parasite city?
