Oh I am curious as well thanks for scanning. :D (I especially want to know what Arakawa's message is).
Omg omg, on the second page it's announcing Arakawa's new work: Souten no Koumori. *__* I think you would translate that as "Bat of Blue Sky"? Either way it looks and sounds cool~!
*will come back to look at the rest after dinner*
Oh wow does that mean a new short manga story? XD
Apparently! I think it's going to be released with some other new stories by other mangaka? "A spectacle of newly written works by super popular authors!!" *insert several names I don't recognize* "Remake everything!" (I think that's supposed to be a catchphrase) "On release this week!"
...Is there such thing as a magazine called GanGan Custom? Cuz I'm not sure if this is advertising the same thing as the third page, which says there will be an "IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT/PUBLICATION!!!!" in the August edition of GanGan Powered...
I don't know of anything called "Custom"... o__o
I'm thinking of ordering the next Powered if I can though, Amazon.co.jp sells it too.
*FACEPALM* I misread the kanji. It's "this fall."
I did some googling, and this GanGan Custom is apparently a special edition of the GanGan. There will be some kind of announcement made in the August edition of Powered regarding Arakawa's new work, it seems.
This looks so very interesting~
Now that you've said that, that does look like a bat on that girl's face in the first ad!
That looks pretty cool *_*
Thanks a lot for the scans! ^^
As for Arakawa's message, she lists several dreams she's seen (the wind blowing her drafts into the river; assistants she hasn't hired yet getting in a fight; reaching the deadline but 20 pages are completely blank; not making a deadline and all the other manga authors do horrible things to her, etc.) Then she says that in 5 years, none of those things have actually happened, and she thanks the readers.
She's too cute ♥ ♥ Thanks for the translation!
Oh! thanks for the scans! (I'm so late to post ^^;)
If amazon.co.jp sell this Gangan Custom, I'll definitely going to buy it, if not, I'll watch the auction on yahoo Japan and catch it later!
A new story by Arakawa, so exiting!
She seems to be more productive since the end of Hagaren's anime, a chapter of Raiden-18 in December, then a drama CD, a chapters of Shanghai Monsters, then this new story ...
WoW! I can't wait to read her new manga :D This is quite interesting~~~
