\/\/007!!! Let us know when it gets in.

BTW, while you wait, want some links to some blogs talking about it?
 
#3
I still wanna know if they had to pay royalties to The Who for that title, lol. Maybe they only would if they released it in the West, which they probably won't.
 
#6
I was thinking there will probably be several new characters in leather with lots of zippers and belts. Then I realized that Nomura isn't involved.

From what I've gleaned, it's AC-DC era, but has flashbacks as well. Reno recounts at least one.

But that's second hand from blogs that appeared to a bit stream of consciousness.

And which mentioned 'Aerith, Tifa, and Cloud's three daughters'

So yeah.

I see.

So Cloud finally married Priscilla, eh?

Uh

Am I the only one who common sense shifted to the possibility, or rather, probability, that it's referring to adopted daughters, especially since we already know Cloud takes care of orphans, and especially since we're dealing with the nuances of translated effort of something that has yet to even be released.

This is always the worst time for anything originating in Japan/non-English countries, because this is when you get a lot of random crap and misinformation from people using Babelfish and Google Translate on blog posts :monster:

When I get the book (currently getting ready to ship) I'll read through it once first and give a summary before starting.

5. Irina's Irritation

I'm going to go out on a limb (and be completely right) and say this should be Elena, whose name sounds like Irina in Japanese.

See me, feel me

2. This Is How The Case Began (事件はこうして始まった)
3. A Case Arrives (事件がやってきた)

5. Elena's Frustration (イリーナの苛立ち)

7. Fabio Defeated In The End (結局やられたファビオ)
8. Out of Control Night (暴走した夜)

10. Unbreakable Bonds (絶てない縁)
11. Flunking (落第)

13. Annette Townshend (アネット・タウンゼント)
14. My World Is Changing Again (おれの世界はまた姿を変える)

19. Outcast (仲間はずれ)

27. Starting the Project (プロジェクト始動)

29. Reno and Rude, In A Rush (レノとルード、焦る)

Who are you?
31. A Peaceful Trip, and Reminiscence (平穏な旅、そして回想)

33. Rude Targeted (ルード、狙われる)

36. The Turks Were Scary After All (タークスはやはり怖かった)
37. Beloved Shinra (愛される神羅)

47. A Few Epilogues (幾つかの後日談)


Tentative because it'll be easier to pick a good chapter title once I actually know what the chapters are about.

Given the book's title and the heading for the two sections (and Townshend), are any of the other titles references to The Who?

Also, actual answer I forgot re: links to blogs about it = for me, no thanks, since I'm already getting the book and would rather read the whole thing properly than just bits and pieces people have put online :monster:

And which mentioned 'Aerith, Tifa, and Cloud's three daughters'.
Well... seeing as how this is AC/DC I doubt this very much. I mean we would have heard about these three daughters by now either in DoC or certainly CoD... not that it's not adorable to think about though :monster:

29. Reno & Rude, Burning
OH hell yeah, canon yaoi :awesome:

So yeah.
I broke my own rules and looked at what the hell this was all about.

It's about motherfucking Corneo. He's back.

It's not 'three daughters', but the 'three girls' he met: Aerith, Tifa, and 'Miss Cloud'. He's got secretly taken photos of them and other girls he had brought to him decorating his room.

The timing of the novel: The story is Evan's recollections of events, goes from Meteor to just before AC (
Kadaj appears in it as well
), while the epilogues are post-AC.

YES YES YES YES YESSSSSSSSSS

That got me very excited, and yes, you're right, that name translation has been mentioned officially I think :)

Edit: That post was just babble. Sorry, I freaked out a bit there about the news that there's a whole chapter with that persons name in it. And the stuff about the translation, I mean it's not even a 'translation' - the 'proper' Englified version of that name is
Irina
. I mean it's not even a question, right? But I was just referring to the fact that that they decided to
go ahead and use a very Englified version
has been mentioned officially somewhere.

(Do I really need spoiler tags for all that?)

So Cloud IS gong to be emo.. or you know sad and such... fucking a... :(


EDIT

Hey does this novel have pictures?
I doubt it but I'd love to see the image of Cloud, Tifa and Aerith at Corneo's :monster:
