Cover img is out on Amazon for the latest HakuYou novel. ...Uh oh......? It doesn't look like one, but I'm wondering if the story went the way all the predictions have been going...? Argh! My book coupon's stuck on my old HD! >.<;; A quick check on 2ch tells me that at least one person has received their copy, so hopefully spoilers will start coming out in the next day or two. (Will keep an eye on the spoiler thread since spoilers won't be allowed in the HakuYou thread until after the 31st.

Can't wait to find out where the story goes. ^o^

[ETA comment on 2ch: 'If you were surprised by the cover, you'll be floored by the illustrations.']

[ETA2: Migawari Hakushaku Manga Vol 2 is set to be released Dec. 26th ISBN: 978-4-04-854410-8-C0979 ]

What's so worrisome about the cover? It looks fine to me.

Depends on what exactly that bird is supposed to be and its related symbolism. It doesn't look right to be a stork (not to mention, the SS with the stork spirit had the wing colour right). As for the comment on 2ch, I suspect the issue there is because of how the charas look. Lydia looks more like she did back on v2's cover (I though the last cover was more striking on the younger look than this one), and the changing drawing style is supposedly starting to affect Edgar in the illustrations as well.

That's supposed to be a stork? *looks again* Ummmm. Yeah. Right.

I'm not familiar enough with the artwork to be able to tell if Lydia looks younger or not.

...How does 'it doesn't look like a stork' equal 'it's supposed to be a stork'?? From the cover illust, I don't know what it's supposed to be. It could be a goose for all I know. The three birds it most resembles in my mind that are relatively white are the goose, stork, and swan. Each has different symbolism.

I think it looks more like a goose than anything else. Not that there's anything wrong with a goose except for the fact that it's not a stork if that's what the bird is supposed to be.

What's the symbolism associated with a goose? I can't think of any off the top of my head.

me too. I find it okay. Though Edgar looked feminine on the illustration.

It doesn't look quite right to be a stork and the wing colour would be wrong, but... it's hard to say what the bird is supposed to be for sure. (I'm not sure if it's supposed to be swans, geese, or storks. ^^; )
