Finally sales data for volume 2.
It sold about 13,078 copies within 3 days in week 1. That's about 1k more than volume 1. I hope the sales are the same or better for week 2. I would be great if the sales increased with each volume, since I don't want it to decline in numbers like Tokiwa did.
Volume 3 will be out November 16, and it's likely going to contain chapters 17-26.

So many translations. I only knew about the Portuguese. Spanish appears to be retranslating from Portuguese and the French group retranslates from English, so they don't count.

Kimi wa 008 chapter 27 contained another riddle that works the same as the one in chapter 22.
- Which animal is hiding in the middle of Australia? (1)
- Which animal becomes light when you turn it around? (5)
- Which animal hides inside the refrigerrator? (1)
- What animal do you get when you add a dot to dai? (3)
- What has 6 faces and 21 eyes? (2)
All answers have to be in English.
Obviously the first four can't be solved when you translate the questions into English. Here's some help with them.
Or you can do it like some guy on twitter did: He didn't even bother with the quiz and just entered a few English 5-letter-words that fit the context of this series. Didn't take him long to get the right url.

It still sold about 30,703 copies according to book-rank net. Let's hope that all future volumes don't drop below 30k.

If someone want to make a wiki. But I'd stay far away from Wikia, now known as FANDOM, for this. They will nuke everything with visible nipples. I tried censoring the title pages for Tokiwa Kitareri, but some were deleted even with censoring. Then they are implemeting some updates and new features that kind of suck while retiring ones that people liked. Also that website has so many ads that you cannot go there without an adblocker.

2018 Christmas card. You can win one of these if you live in Japan and send a postcard to Shogakukan/Shonen Sunday.
There's another one for readers of Shonen Sunday's sister magazine Sunday S, but this one reuses an old illustration.

Maybe one of you guys has got an idea.
I'm looking for a way to archive the 008 bonus art, but I'm not sure what's the best way. You can pick up a printed volume any time, but the color pages, first print bonus art, and the images the author posts on twitter might not be around forever.
I'd like to sort those files into different folders/galleries: Twitter art, quiz bonus, color pages, print bonus. Would be nice if you could add a comment for the source. An option that hised NSFW for those who don't want to see it would be nice, but it's not neccessary.
Files on file hosters life mediafire tend to expire.
Many image hosts (flickr, imgur) won't be okay with the nsfw-ist art in 008
Facebook gets an aneurysm when they see a single nipple and the resize/compress images.
Wikia doesn't resize, but they hate nsfw as well.
G+ is going to be dead soon.
