Thanks, Elaedan! ;D I'm glad your book came before your trip (have fun, by the way!)
...We get stickers? Sweet.

So Mepphy's 184 cm without his ahoge? I can't read Japanese but that what it looks like in this
Huh. It says 184 cm without the "horn". Amaimon's says the same thing. I guess their hair counts as their horns showing? I remember Kazue Kato's blog referring to the flames around Rin's forehead as horns once; maybe it's kind of a loose definition, like with their "hearts".

Some quick highlights from those pages:

-Rin likes rock music etc.

-"Samael, King of Time" has been added to Mephisto's list of titles, and his favorite word/saying is "Stop, Time; thou art so beautiful" from Goethe's Faust.

-Amaimon and Behemoth's profiles are amusing and I need to share them:

Amaimon
Sex: Male
Age: I've been using this body for about 1000 years.
Title(s): King of Earth
Date of birth: A long time ago.
Blood type: Red.
Height: 174 cm (168 cm without the "horn")
Weight: 56 kg
Hobbies: Sightseeing, walking around eating stuff, video games
Average time spent sleeping: 2 hr/night
Average time spent taking a bath: 15 min
Favorite word(s): "Dodododo" and "Gogogogo" (manga sound effects used when something menacing happens)
Favorite manga genre: reads them all but doesn't get why people like them
Favorite music genre: listens to them all but doesn't get why people like them
Favorite type of girl: Ones who smell good
Favorite pastime: All-out battles with Behemoth

Behemoth
Sex: Male
Length: 88 cm (with tail)
Weight: 40 kg
Hobbies: digging holes (often steals things from people's dogs)
Favorite food: rotten meat
Favorite word(s): whatever Amaimon says
Favorite type of girl: females who smell good--like a dishrag soaked with old milk
Favorite pastime: hunting for moles out in the country

Demon blood types are colours?

Only 2 hours of sleep per night... well, that explains the bags under his eyes.

thank you for sharing those!! 'blood type: red.' at least he's straight forward haha
and behemoth's interests are pretty funny

i'm glad to see more of goethe's faust being incorporated with mephisto's character (so i guess that line depicted from faust- 'stop time, thou art so beautiful/fair'- from the anime is a bit more relevant now)

i just got the book today and indeed it is pretty great! lots of repeat material but some new stuff too. it looks like there is also a little bit more info on the setting and demons but i haven't read all of it yet. it's a shame that the ranking poster/yukio in snow poster isn't larger and i can't bring myself to cut it out.
it is very thick so it's a bit difficult to bend flat unless you destroy the spine.
and although there are names for a lot of the miscellaneous exorcists the book still doesn't reveal the names of some of the new illuminati (the girl with hair streaks, the twins). i'll try to take some pictures of things that i think are relevant, new or just really interesting later tonight.
or if there is something specific you want to see you can ask.

Anything on the new demons or the setting...anything that hasn't been revealed yet. On your own time, of course...uh, do you have time to translate it?

mmm i remember that there was a bio on yamantaka which i think is new. i don't remember all the demon bios that have been out until now but there was some stuff on the snakes (nagaas and other houjou demons) and those.
there is a short blurb on Lucifer (no spoilers) but there is a lot more info on Izumo's familiars so i'll probably upload those later. i may not translate everything but i'll try to do a rough translation depending on how easy to read it is.
i dunno if any of you want the info on settings or about the exorcist classes or misc stuff. there is also some info about the concepts but it's mostly just words no pics so i'll look at that later and figure out if there is anything of interest there.
but yeah i'll try to do something later tonight because i'm excited.

If it wer up to me, I would like to see everything but since it's your time, share what you judge worth it. Thanks for the effort!

*EDIT*

From Tumblr:

Remember Kazue had told fans in the question corner they could tell who was with who in normal school with the info given by the manga, well, here is to check your guesses:

There is a Salaryman chapter included in the book as well:

Character catch phrases (sort of):

The one sent to Izumo... urgent need to do RinIzu+Kuro.

I'm so torn. I really want to know what it says but I don't want to spoil myself in case it ever gets translated ._.
Thank you all for sharing, though I'll end up reading them anyway

And that Salaryman. I'm starting to like Toudou more than I did before.

I doubt I'll ever recover from that comic. Just saying.

Also all these posts are making me more and more tempted to order it for myself.
I mostly just quietly stalk things. Don't mind me.
