My copy is still in Tokyo, Japan so unless no one else gets it first I won't be supplying them, sorry...

If you don't want anyone to see the spoilers, perhaps you could PM them to me? Only if you want, that is.
...and it's here... full sized novel, not light novel so no illustrations except for the dust jacket shown above and it was plastic wrapped and contained two illustrated postcards (1st press bonus?), one the same as the dust jacket, the other by another illustrator but also of Misaki Mei but this time without her eyepatch.

The introduction starts with Misaki Mei asking if she should tell Sakakibara-kun about that summer story he didn't know about... if he wants to ask about it... but I think I'll open a thread in the novel forum for spoilers. There is no home page for the Another Episode S book yet (I requested one) so I can't create a forum for it yet. I will create a forum in the old Another novel for now and will create a new one when the new novel page is created by a mod.

I'll have to keep an eye on this, I watched Another a few weeks ago and I really liked it.

A sequel to Another? Nooo! The anime is really good, but if there's going to be a sequel that means the anime will be too dragged out.
I'm interested in the OVA, though.

The sequel is coming from the original writer though, so it might not be bad. And we might see more of this anime as well!
The sequel will probably be about another Class 3, it makes sense.
yah, sequels dont always have to include the same cast and a continuation of the plot, it could be a prequel about sakakibara's mom's class, which ide be interested in for sure

I think that may depend partially on how well Another sells when Sentai brings it across the pond. There's just no market for it right now. Unfortunately... T_T

I'm talking about it being translated, more specifically. (Or has there been a fan translation of the original novel that I'm unaware of?)
