That was bonus novel Kimitoasamade 2-B. It’s thanks to all of you that I could do something like this. Thank you very much.

With 2-B, everything is set up for the preparations(?). The bonus novels for the 2nd season will begin on the following morning and have everything moving toward the spring school festival.

As you can see from the events so far, they were already prepared when the main series began, so their position a year before that is quite complex.

In the main series, they are 3rd years, which is something of a completed product, and they were ready to head out into the world with Toori and the others. So what were their relationships and situations like a year beforehand?

Everyone experiences these times of remaking or reorganizing themselves. In modern terms, I suppose it’s like the gap between your 2nd and 3rd year of college. (There’s less of a sense of a “higher level” than there is in high school, so I think that’s how it would seem to Far Eastern residents who would come of age at 15.) That’s when you start thinking about your occupation, romances that might lead to marriage, and your other relationships. But at this point, Toori isn’t the Chancellor or Student Council President and he’s only a mid-level entertainer who gathers the attention of the people around him. Similarly, their usual gathering place isn’t on the bridge. It’s at Suzu’s bathhouse run for students or at somewhere else.

In a way, they aren’t sure if they should let themselves worry about everything or if they can believe in their former dreams. I hope we can see what happens to them next as well as the silly situations that will happen unrelated to that.

And with that, it’s time for the usual chat.

“Did you buy the BD?”

“I did.”

“Thank you very much for your purchase.”

“So this thing’s a Blu-ray? I can’t watch that.”

“With some practice, you can read the disk’s grooves yourself. I think most of the big boobs are on the outer edge. The inside has the flat chests.”

“I doubt it, but can a PSP read it?”

“It physically can’t, so just go buy a PS3 and play some Monster Hunter.”

Now, my background music was the demo version of ZONE//ALONE, the second season’s OP. It doesn’t have the vocals yet, but I think you might be able to listen to the finished product by the time this bonus novel reaches you.

Anyway, the next Kimitoasamade will come with Season 2 Volume 1, so wait a bit. The manuscript is actually already done, so I think it should reach you without delay.

April 2012. A morning without pollen.
