current mood: curious


Second tweet link contains preliminary cover for the first novel.


Apparently, they're publishing parts of the first vol in Da Vinci mag issues 11 and 12 (Oct and Nov 6th release) as part of a special. Comments on 2ch haven't been very revealing about any diffs between the original and the rewrite from what I saw, but I think most people are really waiting to see how things go from the second vol onwards. I know that's where I really started getting interested in the series. ^^;

Very nice, I like it much better than the pompadours on the old covers.

Do you know if that Twitter is an official feed? Or is it a fan-created feed? (Not that it ultimately makes a difference to me. Being in Japanese, I can't read it regardless if it's official or not. LOL)

Edit: Took a look at the cover pic in the Twitter link. I think the artwork for the cover has been influenced by the anime character designs. Especially in Mai's case.

Looked around and it's as official as it can get. It's the twitter feed for the rewrite's info blog.

The cover illust(s? all?) is by Inada Shiho. Apparently it's an illust that was cut from the original manga and is being used for the rewrite. From 2ch and twitter apparently there was some confusion about whether there would be illustrations in the novel by her, but that's looking like a no. Only cover illustrations.
