Oh man KH2 vol. 3 was definitely wonderful to read. ;~; Shiro Amano adds so much life to everything

Highlights for me included his handling of Maleficent and Pete's relationship, all of the FF characters (particularly petty Squall - and YRP), and Gooby's "death"). The man is full of wit, and I appreciate the life he especially breathes into KHII.

D'oh, I missed!

I seem to have forgotten...again...

xD I don't blame you. It's been forever since it was revealed

Poor Squall...so petty and everybody knew it haha. I loved all of the Tron parts where he'd show emotion after looking super cool. Best part was when Tron started blushing after he screamed out he had all of his functions back. Sobbing and Kairi escaping just to go back to her cell because Demyx was too precious

Being in the UK, KH doesn't seem that big over here. Thankfully there is a shop over here that sells the KH Manga and I bought all of the Manga today. Do we know anything about when KH2 Volume 4 Omnibus will be released? I assume after they've finished Days and KH2 they will move onto Birth By Sleep, then ReCoded and then Dream Drop Distance?

I am intrigued by the novel too so it would be good to get my hands on it if I can! Are the novels written for children or teenagers? Just curious as to what level of reading they will put them at...

If Shiro Amano decides to moves on to BBS rofl.

It's a light novel series, which in the west can be compared to young adult books. So, yeah...teenagers. Official rating on the book says "Ages 8-18"

Yeah, I hope they give us some good information on the 3rd this year. We probably won't get the game until sometime next year though I think.
What I would love to see soon, is a picture of the characters and their new clothes! I'm sure they're planning on spoiling that much. They always do!
I was so excited the first time I saw Sora and Riku's new clothes from 3D. I can't imagine what KHIII will be like!

I'll be counting the days for the novel!

Omnibus 3 covered the japanese volumes 6 & 7 and the latest in Japan is vol 8. They'll need to wait for atleast vol 9 to come out, which I'd expect around spring/summer, and then at a later point put them together as Omnibus 4 in English. Basically, don't expect Omni 4 before the end of this year.

As for what comes after KH2, if it happens, I'd bet on either BBS or DDD since they're more relevant (and interesting). Probably leaning more towards DDD. Unless KH3 comes out before Amano even finishes his current work/prepares for the next, that is.

Pretty certain Yen Press doesn't publish in Europe so it is entirely on whatever publisher is there. If you are cool with reading it in English (I know some people prefer it in other languages sometimes), you can import a copy via Book Depository.

As a new member of the "Kingdom Hearts" family this makes me very happy indeed and I also think the cover art looks gorgeous.:smile:

The extra character and background exposition is what I'm looking forward to the most, especially because it's considered third tier canon and not just alternative timeline fan faction.

Yeah, the only way for people in Europe to get the novels or even manga of the KH series is via a specialist shop in London or any of the online retailers like AmazonUK where I got some of my manga and where I've pre-ordered the novel from.

The novels have definitely a higher stance in the series canon than the manga does (which has its own continuity), mainly because Nomura does have some input on the novels in the form of providing the authoress Tomoco Kanemaki with some background information.

I've already pre-ordered both the KH 1 and CoM novel for import at my usual trusted publisher where I get most of my english books from.

The manga is a different issue though as at least here in Germany you can regularily buy it in german language in any shop that sells mangas.
But this might also have to do with that the german version never changed the publisher at all and continued to publish it even when they stopped doing it in the US.

So, I got my copy a day early and it is pretty good. Very easy read, and I learned about a new kind of tree.

Also Novel!Kairi = Manga!Kairi >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Game!Kairi

And now I've finished. ;~;

Very fantastic translations by Yen Press! Thankfully I'm light on my load of coursework so I have time to review it.

It fits perfectly next to my Spice & Wolf novel collection~
