Further Yami no Matsuei vol. 13 info

Although volume 13 was released yesterday (20th July), my copy won’t arrive until Monday 24th (overseas shipping).  However, Hana to Yume’s Twitter linked to an informative synopsis of the book on natalie.mu.

Vol. 13 ncludes the Za Hana to Yume chapters that were published from 2011 to 2015 and also the “Tatsumi’s Day” side story from October 2004.  The site also mentions that the YnM manga (overall, not just vol. 13, lol!) has sold over 4 million copies to date.

I’m guessing from this that there’s little-to-no completely new content, although maybe there’ll be some new author’s notes (I hope!).

What’s been puzzling me for some time now is why these chapters were ever re-written in the first place, as the HtY installments had already reached chapter 75 by 2005, and the more recent installments don’t even reach that point as far as I remember.  Why were volumes 12 and 13 not published back in the early 2000s?  I suspect we’ll never know why, although I am curious.

Fanlore is recruiting gardeners to help us with Fanlore!

Do you like writing about fandom? Gardeners are editors who work on Fanlore and take additional responsibilities regarding the wiki’s maintenance. In addition to adding content themselves, they make sure text isn’t deleted indiscriminately and tidy up after other editors, to help new content better fit the wiki’s guidelines. They can also participate in internal discussions about Fanlore events, policies, and documentation. No technical experience is required—you just need to know and love Fanlore, both as a user and an editor. If that sounds like you, come and join us!
