Lunar Silver Star Novel now in English! Officially!

Postby TheFallingStar » Tue Nov 30, 2010 8:52 am

I can't believe it when I see this on my twitter

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004E9UC9W/

Bought it for my kindle app immediately.

I just want to share it with everyone. Hopefully we will see Eternal Blue someday too!

I believe you can also read Kindle books on PC/Mac

They provide a PC/Mac application to read books you buy from Kindle store. The application is free.

You just need an amazon account.

I'm curious: who's the translator?

"Ye ar the more unwyse, for the scawberde ys worth ten of the swerde; for whyles ye have the scawberde uppon you, ye shall lose no blood, be ye never so sore wounded. Therefore kepe well the scawberde allweyes with you." --- Le Morte Darthur, Sir Thomas Malory

:shock: :o :) :D :mrgreen:

OMG! This must be what Shigema was talking about yesterday! There is a beautiful Funato wallpaper for it up on the Game Arts site, too. http://www.gamearts.com/products/kindle-lunar.html

The translator is John Sears, who served in the same role for SSH. He who dedicated his work on the game to his son Layke. I hoped it'd be him, cause that's too awesome. :mrgreen:

Funato just put up a post about him on her blog, too. She writes that he works as an English teacher, and he contacted Game Arts after SSH was announced, asking to help with the translation. The producer was impressed by his passion for the series so he got his wish. Funato thinks this is great since she's an ascended fangirl too.

Holy cow! I will have to find a way to read this without acquiring yet another piece of hardware for one purpose.

Neat to hear that it's the same translator, too. I wonder what people who are unfamiliar with the basic storyline of the novels will make of it, though... I remember when Kizyr was first reading it he was, er, taken aback.

I soooooo am buying this first thing tomorrow! And I love that wallpaper/cover! It's my new wallpaper starting now. :mrgreen:

I would buy it this very instant if I had fast internet and could actually download the thing. And hopefully getting the file and viewing won't be too hard since I don't have a Kindle. Plus, I've never bought a digital book before. o_o

Yeah, I'm glad to finally get that particular piece of art. In theory it's on LunarNET already, but for some reason only part of it loads.

WHAT?? I was literally just thinking about how cool this would be the other day! I can't buy it right now, but I will as soon as I can! How long is it?

BTW, what are the major differences? Is it different in a good way, a bad way, or just a different way?

Just thought I'd throw it out there.. Apple has a kindle app for ipod touch/ipad. That way you don't have to buy amazon's horrible piece of hardware. :wink:

Bought it an hour ago. All you have to do (for those of you who don't have Kindles) is download the PC application. Open it, and it'll ask for your amazon email account and password. Then, once your signed in, go to Amazon and purchase the novel. It'll come up with an option to download it to the application you just installed. Go back to the application, and TAH DAH! Lunar goodness is now in your hands! :mrgreen:

I will be reading this in-between classes today. >:3

This is awesome news! I had to log in because it's so awesome! What are the chances of this being released as a physical book? I'm reading it now on my iphone through the kindle app but would love to see a real book. This brings us one step closer to a Lunar movie. :D

There is a summary of the novel on LunarNET if you want to see for yourself. KF

An actual book edition would be nice.
