Hi there! It was out in the official website that there is another 2 more signing events for Satoshi Morie and Mizuho Kusanagi!!

Okay first, Satoshi Morie’s signing event will be held on June 27 and will start at 2pm and ends at 3pm. The event will be held at the Kinokuniya Bookstore in a specially set-up venue located in Shinjuku. The address for the event is Tokyo-to, Shinjuku-ku, Shinjuku 3-17-7. The first 120 participants will be given a special ticket to access the event and to only bring the mangaka’s first volume release of the series, Hakuji to be signed.

Now, Mizuho Kusanagi’s signing is to be held in Kinokuniya Bookstore in the branch located in Fukuoka Prefecture and is on June 28th, a day after Satoshi Morie’s signing event. It will start at 2pm but the site has yet to provide the scheduled time it will end. The exact address where the event will be held is at Fukuoka Prefecture, Fukuoka City, Hakata-ku, Hakata Station, Central Town 2-1, Fukuoka Centre Biru 6F. The mangaka’s NG Life volume 9 is going to be released on June 22nd and the first 150 participants are to be bring that to the event to be signed.

There are a few details I am unable to translate so I’m really sorry for that.

Signing events for HanaYume!!

Hi guys! There will be a signing event for Banri Hidaka-sensei, Julietta Suzuki-sensei and Kaede Kouchi-sensei!

Hidaka-sensei’s signing event will be on May 23 at 2pm. The event is held at Hoshino Bookstore located at Nakamura-ku, Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture. 150 lucky participants are chosen and are only to bring either VBRose’s volume 14 or VBRose Illustration Fanbook,  both to be released on May 19th.

For Suzuki-sensei, her signing event is going to be held on May 24th, a day after Hidaka-sensei’s event. The event is to be held at Animate’s Yokohama branch located at Takashima, Nishi-ku, Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture.

The store is located at Yokohama Plaza Hotel’s 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor. (I think) The event starts at 2pm as well. The same as Hidaka-sensei’s event, 150 chosen participants only and to bring Kami-sama Hajimemashita’s 3rd volume that is going to be released on May 19th.

Finally, here’s Kouchi-sensei’s signing event information! The event is going to be held on May 31st at 2pm at Junkudou Bookstore that is located at Toyoshima-ku, Tokyo. The same as well for all events, 150 chosen participants only. They are to bring Love So Life’s 1st volume that is going to be released on May 19th.

Here are the links to the respective signing events for the mangaka! Each page has beautiful pictures, book covers for upcoming volumes (except for Kouchi-sensei’s)

There is also an anquete out on May 2, if you understand Japanese enough to navigate yourself to through the questions, you can download the wallpapers in which the colour pages are the wallpapers.

 In this round, they asked whether you are watching any drama (Japanese drama, I suppose) in April and has a special wallpaper that features Berry Berry by Banri Hidaka!

From this information, I can sum up that on May 19th, these following books are released:

  • VBRose – volume 14
  • Kami-sama Hajimemashita – volume 3
  • VBRose Illustration Fanbook
  • Love So Life – volume 1

P.S: There is also a Gakuen Alice site in HanaYume. It’s here: http://www.hakusensha.co.jp/alice/


Yuki Kure-sensei’s Signing Event!

There’s a signing event in Bunkyoudo Bookstore in Shibuya, Tokyo on this Saturday (March 14) at 1pm.

The voucher for the signing event was given out randomly (I think) for those who pre-ordered the series’ volume 12 that went on sale on March 5.

The voucher or ticket for the event has been given out and you can only bring volume 12 to be signed by the mangaka. Nothing else can be given to the author to sign as well as no photography equipment allowed.

I’m not really sure about the certain details in the site, I can only say that the info is something like that. By the way, volume 12’s cover features Kaho-chan with Yunoki-senpai.

Oh yeah, this signing event is also on the same day as the Gakuin Sai 2, so people who got the ticket for the event and the festival must be in a dilemma…
