Bow Wow! -Two Dog Night- Color Pages+Prologue

(Download the updated version in PDF/epub format here.)

Here is the first update for the Etsusa Bridge series, which is the second work by Ryohgo Narita of Baccano!, Durarara!!, and Vamp! fame. The series is comprised of four main books and a collection of short stories. Currently, a second short story collection is supposedly in the works. (Fans have been waiting since 2008. Thanks a lot, Durarara)

This series takes place in Japan's near-future, in the same 'verse as the rest of Narita's light novel series(minus Hariyama-san). There is almost no overlap between Etsusa Bridge and the other novels, but fellow slaves of the Naritaverse keen-eyed readers might notice a few references here and there--especially in later volumes.

As with my other series, I'm taking a localization-style approach to this translation. No honorifics, names in Western order, and as few translation notes as possible(see how miserably I fail at the last one).

Gakuen Kino 5 - Prologue

This novel is, as usual, a work of fiction.

It has absolutely nothing to do with real events, truths, Kino’s Journey ~the Beautiful World~, or a certain high school baseball club. Really.
