Another volume ends!
Hey everybody! hikaslap here.
Just so that no one forgets, TOM ACTUALLY TALKED
LOOK LOOK (cut off part says “Thanks for sticking”)
This is like, historic, guys. I’ve never heard anything non-cryptic come out of his mouth. Maybe he hired a secretary.
(Oh wait, he did! Man, I’d like to talk to her again. She was cute. Oh god, she was cute ughhhhhh i’ve never met somebody as cute and wha, her cosplay was really really good last week whaaaa why did I even bring up the topic, now I’m in tears. I went to an anime convention last weekend, maybe you guys can guess which one it is, but Ameranth was there and oh my GOD we hung OUT and so many people took pictures of her cosplay which was this great Chara from Undertale, and her wavy hair was so pretty and went so well with the flower circlet she had, oh my god the flower circlet waaaah. I think I just have a thing for boyish looking girls, or maybe girlish looking girls who happen to dress boyish. Okay, okay, well, anyway, we’ve heard from our mysterious translator now, I guess. I wonder if TOM will say other things, too. It could be like a scavenger hunt. It could be fun. Find the dragonballs but the dragonballs are the mystic words of TOM. But this is very scary—you can make a plot device out of dragonballs since there are only seven, but mystic words, information, that’s pretty hard. Information is a scary thing. so easily disseminated, and if it causes panic or drives people insane, what are you going to do? Sigh. I miss that cute girl from the convention. I wish i was brave enough to talk to her more. )
On a more serious note, here’s the plan for Volume 4. We’ll open in some four weeks or so—except for a small cliffhanger resolution that we’ll post next week. Only after Volume 4 properly begins will we post color illustrations, etc. During those four weeks time me and Superal, our ebook editor, will work on the pdf and epub (I personally won’t start until after final exams.) As for the afterword and appendix, those are always posted when the new volume begins.
Okay, that’s what to expect. Thanks everybody!
