Weekend Hero (Novel series)
« on: November 28, 2012, 04:54:43 PM »
Blue Exorcist has it's own novel series, currently on the first volume, Weekend Hero. it is written by Aya Yajima and illustrated by Katou herself. the book contains various side stories that are not told in the manga or anime.

according to today's update on katou's site, it looks like there will be a second volume of the novel series, titled 'Home Sweet Home', available from the 4th of December. from the illustrations i'm assuming there'll be a story about the twins at elementary school age, one about the very young kyoto trio, and one about Mamushi and Juuzou during their True Cross Academy days.

It worries me that she spends time on things other than the manga, but oh well.

I love the drawings on her site.

Mangahelpers has a thread with translations.
http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php/78269-Weekend-Hero-novel-thread

They're quite fun, though I'm still getting used to the fact that Yukio was acting behind Rin's back all the time even at school (seriously, how could he live like that?).

It worries me that she spends time on things other than the manga, but oh well.
Are there a lot of illustrations in there? Because I don't think a few pics would take that much time...

It's perfectly understandable. A lot of writers focus on completely unrelated projects while in the midst of as series. Probably helps in maintaining sanity and whatnot.

I wonder if we will get a localized release. That would be nice.

That Izumo chapter looks ADORABLE.

I doubt we'd ever get a localized release and honestly I'd rather have the novels than a reboot of the anime first.

But for some reason I guess they assume English fans don't like reading? Literally the only ln I've ever seen translated is that one Death Note one.
I mostly just quietly stalk things. Don't mind me.

Novels take a lot of translating compared to manga. That makes them expensive.

If Viz hasn’t even gotten around to translating the artbooks yet, I doubt we’ll be getting the novels any time soon.

What was translated of the Weekend Hero one seems interesting. I like being able to get inside the characters' heads. And LOL at Yukio being forced to dress up as a super sentai hero.

I also have both novels, but no scanner and not a lot of free time ^_^; I might be able to help out with translating parts of Home Sweet Home if there's not a translation out there already.

This Mephisto one has me laughing pretty loudly.

He has a twitter. He uses emoticons like "~▫•゜•(/Д)•゜•▫ Uwaahahah  (ˊAˋ▫) ,  ☆(*′|`)ノ°*:.。:〝°*ˋ〝(′|`*) And his tweets are littered with them. And his handle is Meffy.

Classic. Mephisto.

So one of the advertisement things that came with the new manga volume mentioned a third novel, tentatively set for March.
