  1. Hi O6asan,

    Bye bye

    1. Hi gkatar,

      Yes, it’s a great news. Unfortunately, the name of them I’ve not had any information about, yet.

    >Unfortunately, the name of them I’ve not had any information about, yet.
    Oh, I was hoping to know more about them, because I read on the page that Fuyumi Ono was writing a book named “残穢” that google translated to “Residual impurity ” and I wasn’t sure if this book was part of the Twelve kingdoms series.

    Bye bye

    1. Hi gkatar,

      No, “残穢” is not a part of Twelve kingdoms series. It’s a horror novel. Ono sensei is also famous as a horror novelist. Her horror novels I read before were scary. So I don’t read recent her horror novels. (-_-;)

      When she released “残穢” as her new book after an interval of 9 years, I expected a story of Twelve kingdoms though. I deeply hope the announce of the new stories really does come true.

  3. Thanks for the info :) I have had that question on my head for months.

    >Her horror novels I read before were scary. So I don’t read recent her horror novels. (-_-;)
    Haha I bet she is realy good.

    Bye :)

    1. Hi Tracy1Laiyen, LTNS!

      No, they said nothing about it. I think they’ll say if the publication time of the book approaches, in June or so.

      > i’ll know enough japanese and have enough guts to read her other works…

      Keep up your work, and you can do it!!
