  1. No, you didn't understand. It's a 4 pages leaflet given WITH the book. It's just a BONUS. And it's first come first served, so only the first buyers can get them. The price is the same as the normal one, it's just something to make people buy. And of course, they're written by the author.
  2. Well, it exists many stores selling otaku stuff. The store managers asked themselves "how can we make people choose to buy in OUR store?". Answer: having something only possible to have in this store, aka. Store Bonus. So for example, Youkoso will have a different store bonus for MelonBooks, Animate, Toranoana or Gamers. Rarely a LN has 4 store bonuses, most of the time the maximum is 3, and it's amongst these stores. That way, true fans are kinda obligated to buy in all the stores who has a store bonus if they want to have everything, thus each store makes a profit. That's the gist of it.
  3. These are Store Bonuses. In Japan, depending on the store you buy the novel you can get a short 4 pages leaflet with a little short story. In general only popular LNs have them, but recently new promising LNs have them too.
  4. Agree with both of you. Everyone can say what they want about Kasumi's route, but Shirou vs Bey fights are awesome.
  5. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    To be fair didn't talk much with NPCs, but the side quests are OBLIGATORY. I mean, it's the ONLY way to get lots of money. (selling your old gears and weapons doesn't get you much, and you use your sepiths for something else) So doing all the side quests does make the game longer. It's actually the same in Zero right now. Just spent one hour saving and loading to fish the right fish for a quest, and the guide was wrong and fished too much.....
  6. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Finished Trails in the Sky the 3rd, then decided it was finally time to see the result of my (2) years of learning Japanese and started Zero no Kiseki Evolution. TiTS 3rd was really nice, and the rythm is far better than FC and SC as you don't go talking to everyone (there's nobody after all >.>) and there isn't any side quest, just the doors, which are part of the story, so interesting. (ok, a few are boring, but still better than 10~20+ hours walking on the map trying to talk to all NPCs and do the side quests) As for Zero, only midway through chapter 1, and damn, if it wasn't voiced I wouldn't be playing it. Knowing that only the main story is voiced, it's a pain when talking to NPCs and doing side quests. Thankfully I'm using the French guide which summarises the conversations of the "important" NPCs and the side quests, so no problem so far. Can't really say much about the story for the moment. Also, the 3rd spoiled me with Turbo mode, Zero felt sooooo slooooow at first, but got used to it.
  7. Kanojo wa Tenshi de Imouto de

    Considering Satsukoi's ending, I guess I shouldn't read this one...
  8. What are you playing?

    I saw the anime 2 or 3 times before finally playing the VN. Was still totally worth it for all the non adapted scenes, mainly one I REALLY liked. Also, having Okabe's POV, so being in his head and reading his thoughts makes it at least two times better than the anime.
  9. Half of them, other half should arrive tomorrow:
  10. Derg's life in Japan - Cockroach vs Pringles -

    I've been in Japan for a little over a week and I already killed 3 cockroaches... The only thing comforting me (if you can call it that) is that I only had one spider in my room... Japan is such a scary country...
  11. Derg's life in Japan - Culture Shock -

    Arrived to Japan, it's damn hot and humid, it's horrible! My residence isn't that great, but will do. Was lost with all the papers and the fatigue. To bo honest, the next few days are going to be hectic. Also I don't have internet, that when having shared rooms help: roommate has the wifi and share with me. But I don't have a transformer for my laptop and everything, so will have to buy one tomorrow. Anyway, I really hope I'll be able to adapt quickly. Will be horrible for the next few days, but should be better later. Also, nobody speaks neither French (logic) nor English, so we have to speak in Japanese, and it's very difficult to make understand one self. Sorry to post here and all, just wanted to post it as an answer to your post, I guess. And sorry for the mistakes, writing quickly to not use too much of my laptop battery.
  12. Derg's life in Japan - Culture Shock -

    I see, thanks for the answer. Guess I'll take one just to be sure.
  13. Derg's life in Japan - Culture Shock -

    I'm actually going to Japan to study starting from next week for a duration of one year, so it was interesting to read. I don't want to go anymore. T_T Well, more seriously, I hope I'll adapt more easily than you for the food. Waiting for the good stuff now. PS: Dumb question, but did you change your browsing habits or take a VPN? Decided I won't download there to be sure, but I want to at least be able to browse in peace without fear. ^^'
  14. What are you playing?

    Just finished SubaHibi, and, well, I was disappointed. And here I hoped it'd be the masterpiece that so much people praise... Well, still liked it (more like, was kinda meh and just fucked up until the subroute in chapter 4 where I started genuinely liking it)
