Gamers alternate cover, Iroha edition. Just the preview image for now and this is presumably the other colored image. All three special bonuses from three stores up.
Special edition cover from Toranoana. Typically based on a color illustration, so there we go. Hachiman sporting that /fa/.
Bigger cover. Also, page counts seem to be jumping up and up: 266 -> 328 -> 344 -> 366? What. Reminder that this ISN’T the last volume.
The new cover…! But who? Just kidding.
Also, it’s been bugging me, but people need to stop spreading misinformation. Volume 10 isn’t the last. They usually announce what the last volume is, so stop it!
Thanks to the anon who extracted the somewhat bigger image. Will keep in mind.
A new year, new relationships, and new feelings.
Winter. The relaxing Eve of New Year and the beginning of the new year. Hachiman makes an unexpected outing to a shrine for the New Year to pray for successful exams and meets, in the city of the New Year, Yukinoshita Haruno, Hayama Hayato, and… They thought they were able to know more about each other from the time they had spent in class, club, and together. But there are much more things about each other that they had yet to know; both this moment and from here on.
With the end of winter break, their time as second years is just about up. A “rumor” of a certain individual runs rampant in the clamorous classes of the new year. Regardless of their wishes, the time that they spend together in the same place continues to diminish, moment by moment. That atmosphere brings a certain request to the Service Club… And that request brings to light another side of them all that they’ve never known about before. The things that you want to do, the things that the other party wishes for, the desire to convey your true feelings, the person that someone knew, or what that person is actually like; it doesn’t have to be any one of these. The more you wish to treasure the present, the more cowardly you become. Just thinking won’t find you an answer nor would running ahead lead you to your goal. For them comes a new season and new relationships.
Possible volume 10 cover? Perhaps.
A few days passed since the Christmas event and Hachiman welcomes the peaceful new year. Komachi’s tests, hatsumode (visit to a shrine on New Year’s), and the new school semester… In the brief seasonal transition, a “certain rumor” that can’t be overlooked spreads in class…?
The volume will be 264 pages as indicated on several websites.
Haha, it’s time!
Watari announced on Twitter that volume 10 will be getting released on November 17 (date subject to change) this year. No cover illustration of volume 10 yet, but I imagine we’ll get it next month.
Luckily, this release date happens to be a week before Thanksgiving. It’s also on Monday so I’ll be able to get the book before the weekend and get started early.
So now that’s been announced, I have exactly two months to get volume 6 and maybe volume 6.5 done by then. Also, I’m hoping I can get volume 7 redone as well so I can make a PDF of it.
Anyway, I’m excited.
