Now and Then, Here and There
It’s another Emanon-rific Sunday here at Kotonoha as we are releasing all 8 chapters of Wandering Emanon, thus bringing this project to a close. While these all-color chapters are certainly very nice to look at, I personally consider them more an extended bonus than something relevant to the main story. Chronologically they are set after Wandering Emanon ’67 and you will find the events of ’67 referenced here. This is the main reason why we decided to scanlate them in the order we did. Both parts are included in the volume batch on the project page. This is currently all there is of Wandering Emanon. The second volume won’t be out for at least another 1-2 years. It’ll be interesting to see if Tsuruta decides to continue the story of Emanon’s brother or if he goes back and adapts another short story of the second novel. Either option would be great.
Just a little side note, in case you are wondering about the character Hikari. She is a time traveler. She first appears in the short story “Ashibiki Daydream” contained in Omoide Emanon (the first novel). She and Emanon first met 1.2 billion years ago. Ever since they have been trying to reconnect with each other on many occasions.
What? There are other releases? Why, yes! We also have new chapters of Raqiya, Ran to Haiiro no Sekai, and Wolfsmund. I’d like to thank our old friend zindryr for stepping in and translating Wolfsmund for us. Maybe now we can finally catch up with the Japanese release.
