As we know, Saiyuki RELOAD BLAST chapter will not be published in the new ZeroSum
. We have to wait 28th August...
But we can understand also WHY
. Minekura-sensei is busy with the release of Wild Adapter volume 7 and all merchandise, illustrations about it. So we can see the Cards that will be released soon (4 of them are new), a part of the cover, and so on!
Moreover she is working also at the cover of the 4th volume bunko about first Saiyuki series
.She had time also for this drawing for celebrate another work published from Ichijinsha
And obviously for drawing this illustration for Saiyuki Musical Burial CD
and this Ukoku illustration
And this funny genga
Sensei writes also about a new Saiyuki Musical about Saiyuki RELOAD (maybe about Against the Stream arc?)
Surely we miss Saiyuki BLAST chapter. Until now, she published ONLY a chapter this year
and, if the things will not change, she will need 20 years to publish other 8 volumes (because, since she started BLAST, at the end of 2009, in 5 years she published only 2 volumes).
But her assured that, slowly, she will draw new chapters again and that she would like drawing also Ibun and Ants of Heaven soon (...)
I've to confess that I'm shocked about that...she is not able to work even at one series
at the moment...how could her talking about Ibun and Ants of Heaven too?
Yesterday I bought Saiyuki RELOAD BLAST vol.2 in italian language but for vol.3 in Japanese who knows how much have we to wait?
