A one volume extra containing three stories.

1. The first story is MARS prequel, "Namae no nai uma" (A Horse with No Name) which takes place after Rei and Tatsuya enter High School. Tatsuya, who at the time has a crush on Kira, dislikes Rei and picks fights with him. After the climatic motorcycle chase between Rei and a reckless gang of bikers, Tatsuya and Rei begin a new friendship. Other main characters of MARS like Harumi are also presented.

The other two chapters are earlier works of the author non-pertaining to MARS:

2. "Nemuru Raion" (Sleeping Lion)
Tells of the strange relationship between Isomu, a guy who pretends to not have any fear, and Ayame, a girl with particular behaviours.

3. "1 Karatto no Kajitsu",
Tells of Nina, who has some family problems, and Rui, her classmate who is interested in a close friend of the hers. But what if he's interested in Nina?

This sequel, which is actually a prequel to the classic Shoujo/Josei manga, Mars, is comprised of three stories; the first of which cites a freshman Rei and his subsequent meeting with Kira along with other familiar faces. The following two are short, individual stories which are not connected to the Mars storyline.

Story 1 - The title of Mars Gaiden, Horse With no Name not only comes from an old American song, but is the title of the first story of the book, and the only one that holds a connection with Mars.

Story 2 - My personal favorite, story two was a pleasing, and well written read more
