OTWTAS...aka The Look Ahead?

The Look Ahead...okay. How thick is it, do you have a picture of it from the side by chance?

And when are we getting one :(

Given that I already made a front page post about the release of the book in Germany, do you think this worth posting?

Well it's cases of Denzel, Tifa, Barret, Yuffie, Nanaki, Shinra, and Lifestream. And all the newer ones besides Lifestream seemed longer than the originals. But I could be imagining that.

Can you please spot any differences with the translations in this site? Personally, I'd much appreciate it. :) Nothing important if you can't/don't feel like it though.

I'm curious... is this just a German release? Surely it'd be an EU wide release, right?

...Right? :(

Nope, just a German release. Unless publishers in other countries have any interest in releasing this, it'll stay this way I'm afraid...O.o

I know that'll never happen. That's why I'm a sadpanda :sadpanda:

No offense to Germany, but I would have suspected that NA/UK would have gotten it before them. I mean... besides a few differences in spelling, it's the same language. And the UK could cover Australia as well. German is only good in Germany. No I'm not jealous

Totally jealous. But it's awesome that you've got a copy of it. I can't imagine why there wouldn't be an English publication of it sometime soon. Given the content, it should sell really well. Also, I think that if we want to get a few proper pics and do a review, it'd be worth frontpaging. What order do the stories appear in?

There would have to be a publisher for it. I don't think Square-Enix actively seeks publishers to sell their books at all. Unless they are approached by publishers overseas, those books won't be released anywhere else.
Kinda like how the FFXI novels are also only available in Japanese, German and French.

Same as the Japanese edition.
Denzel, Tifa, Barret, Nanaki, Yuffie, Shinra with Lifestream Black and White in-between.

This is sooo retarded. SE love to whore out anything FFVII related they possibly can: soft drinks, perfume, jewellry, personal swabs. Why not release something that people will actually want to buy in English? It defies sense.

So basically, I have to get hold of the head of a publisher here in the UK and threaten him with a breadknife to get them to approach SE? I don't have time for that.

That's just how it works. Square-Enix cannot publish that stuff themselves outside of Japan. Someone has to actually show an interest in getting the rights to publish this. They can't just make overseas publishers to release it either.
