Hello to all.

I wanted to inform you that last month, Watase-sensei released during the Comiket a draft book named Yuu Watase 25th to celebrate her 25th anniversary carrier.

You can see the cover below :

As you can see, Watase-sensei draw her last famous titles including Sakura Gari. ^^ Souma is featuring the back cover and I can tell you : Watase did her best with this cover *___*
Except for a few color illustrations, the book only contains drafts and has around 120 pages. Half of the book is dedicated to Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden, then Arata Kangatari also has a big part. Sakura Gari only has 4 pages of drafts but I am not surprised since Watase-sensei had already released booklets containing Sakura Gari drafts. Then the book finishes with her other previous works.
In my opinion, as a Watase fan, this is quite a nice addition to your collection but as a Sakura Gari fan, well, you might be pretty disappointed.

Hello to all.

After being constantly delayed, Sakura Gari Tsubomi was finally released last month! The book is released with a Sakura Gari postcard and book covers from Arata Kangatari and Fushigi Yugi Genbu Kaiden.
My first comment:
The cover is just gorgeous!! and I count two new color illustrations! (three if we count the postcard!) The book includes hundreds of pages including sketches and comments from the manga. It also includes the extra story released last year along with another new one of 7 pages.

I made a few photos, you can look at them if you want, but I totally recommend to buy it and wait until you got it to discover the new illustrations =3

Hi guys -

I have an extra issue of Rinka Flowers that has to go. This was the first issue running Sakura Gari and it's still shrink wrapped (I think it was published in July 2007). I would also considering trading it for vol #4. Asking $4 plus shipping worldwide.

If someone wants my other Rinka Flowers (1,2,3,5) I would considering selling them as a set. I also have Genbu Kaiden and Ceres stuff that needs rehoming.

As many of you may know by now, Viz has it's own BL imprint now. Since it's start, I as well as others have requested Sakura Gari from them as a possible license. It seemed Viz would be the only one able to do so since they have all of Yuu Watase's works released here in the US.

Well today I got this response on Twitter:

Re: Sakuragari, that's not one we can risk publishing. Sorry! :-(

So I guess Sakura Gari's chances of ever coming over have dropped significantly.
Time to finally import  >.<

edit: reason for risk was mentioned
Content is a legal issue though

But no worries fellow SG fans! you can check out the images below, and not have to deal with the frustration that comes with searching backlogs of blog's:

does anyone here know the specific name of the type of uniform Souma is wearing in this picture?

it's the uniform that boys wore during the Taisho era, but...I don't know what it's called, and since I don't know what it's called I can't google it....

anyone have any idea? "taisho era boys uniform" gets a LOT of hits.
