Not only that, why do they all have brown hair? And why does Eito look remarkably like the mc from his prized disciple's webmanga?

Ha, you are right. I totally forgot about Ayato. Maybe they traded designs: Matsuda got to borrow Aria's design for Princess Iriyaa and Matsuena copy&pasted Ayato for Eito. If you add the main characters from Matsuena's Gaiden stories you have enough people for a copy of Osomatsu-san, the name fits as well.

I went to yahoo auctions to look at the price. 890 yen for something that cost them only a postcard and a stamp.Still better than the Kenichi bonus illustrations that are listed for thousands of yen.

This time there are 6(!) different store bonus illustrations: animate, gamers, toranoana, melonbooks, comic zin, and bunkyodo. I wonder if there will be a madman who'll get all six.

The obi/spince card of volume 4 says that over 220.000 copies of Kimi wa 008 have been printed to far.

(I made a mistake when I made a similar post about volume 3 when I thought the 170k were copies sold, but it's copies printed).


Volume 1 hat 80k-90k copies, that leaves about 43k-46k copies each for the first print of volumes 2-4. The print run went down quite a bit, didn't it? But it's now closer to the amount they actually sell. On the positive side there should still be first print editions of volume 1 left for quite a while. Toranoana even has store bonus prints left over.

Someone actually did it. Twitter user AyRWhpKHfipti36 got all 6 store bonus illustrations.

I wonder what they are going to do with 6 volumes. 1 for reading, 1 backup, 1 backup for the backup, 1 backup for the backup for...? Funny thought, but they are most likely going to sell them to one of Japan's many used book stores.

Edit: I read the tweet again. They write that they've got all bonus illustrations from volumes 1-3 as well. I'm envious.

Matsuea is already working on illustrations for volume 5. which is sheduled for May 17.

I think this one might be the cover illustration. That or the b/w illustration at the beginning of each volume. What was that one called again?


Volume 4 was ranked #36 (week 1). No exact numbers or rakings for week 2 so far.
