    Where can I find the original novel's to purchase / download?

    Post  *711 on Mon Jun 22, 2009 2:29 am

    Hi there.

    Just finished watching the anime (that had some flaws but overwall its pretty damm epic) and after that "please insert continuation here ________" ending I felt compeled to know what the heck happens after that thing.

    As I usually do when this happens I went to find out the manga only to discover that its based on a book. No harm there since I like them just as much but finding the thing is beeing a bitch. The two first ones are translated already and all but I want / need the rest! So here comes my question, where can I find them???

    Downloading would be a big plus since I am on my last year before graduation and I am flat broke but anything would help. The first two volumes in english are already giving me enough trouble finding let alone the other eight Sad

    At any rate, thanks for the attention and the forum itself, the subject that derived it's creation surely deserves our recognition.

    Hi 711, welcome.

    As you seem to already know, only the first two of the ten books have been translated. There's no news of the third being translated that I have heard yet. I also haven't heard of any scans that can be downloaded in any language. I haven't seen any store that keeps them in stock but any bookstore can order them for you.

    I know that isn't what you want to hear, especially since the second book isn't available in paperback. I suggest that you get a wealthy friend geeked about the show and get him to buy the books. Then you can borrow them. =0D

    Depending on where you are, you might find them locally. The Kinokuniya chain carries them, but AFAIK they're only in SF, LA and NY. Otherwise, paperback of the first and hardback of the second would be available through Amazon or any online retailer. And we can hope that Levine publishes the rest in English - I've exchanged a few emails with the editor and I know they want to, but it all depends on sales.

    711,

    Yes, we are all hoping that the rest of 'em get translated, as Eno has said we've gotten a few emails, and they want to do it, but keep spreading the word to do it. Since rest of 'em depend on the success of the sales of this one, so, yes.

    Also, depending on where you live, the hard backs are really, really cheap mind you. I got 'em for under 15 if memory serves me correct, and I know ANYONE can afford that if you really wanna work for it (Like I have), so yeah. The manga as Grin said is more rare than I would imagine, if not anything at all.

    Anyways, I suggest you read 'em they are bit different than the series by far, but the anime flows better, but the series does get a lot better in the 2nd book, bar none. Well, here is the links for your info, and I say get 'em for they are really cheap for hardcovers, IMO
