It is 2012.

Why does this sound like "Let's take Kagura-hime and expand upon /if and how she had to get to the moon by herself, how it would happen/!" ...?

Granted I haven't read the book or anything by this British author.

Yeah you're right. I've been waiting for them to get a new contract too. Also, the the first one sounds promising. English stuff are always good.
