WARD finally came out! My prediction was off by a mere two days. Unfortunately, I wasn't that impressed with Weiss Side B this month. The main problem was the fact that almost nothing happened. The issue started about ten minutes before the last issue ended and focused on what KR was up to and why he sent Trabant on ahead with his ring. Trabant, by the way, is actually female. And it's nice to see some more of Side A.

From what KR said in this issue, he really did have a meeting with someone previously and Chloe is actually meant to be approaching the second Chloe. I had assumed that (our) Chloe had arranged for KR to be late and was going to interfere with the mission.

However, the issue ends in exactly the same place as the last issue -- with the reception area exploding around our Chloe, Chloe and Cedric. I'd be happy with an issue like that if it came out every month, but WARD comes out four times a year...!

IF Christine lives (and that's a pretty big assumption in WeissWorld), I doubt Chloe will want to leave her. But I think she would be out of place at the flowershop. Currently, I'm currently wondering if our Chloe will live at all... We haven't had any deaths yet, have we?

Well, if you're interested, a speed translation can be found here. Perhaps not very accurate, but hopefully close enough.

Clamp-Net reports that Fukuyama Jun-san and Sakurai Takahiro-san will be starring in the new Code Geass anime.

I'm looking forward to that anime. Do you know when it'll start?

Unfortunately, I've no idea. Sorry. ^^

Chloe's owl. :)

Nana: The invited guests are mostly key Welsh figures and those connected with Parliament.

Oh Dear. Upcoming guest appearance from Rhodri? Will they decide he's black and gut him?

I saw that line and thought of you immediately, you know. :P

they have named a character "Trabant"? o_o;

oh Weiß, or dear sweet Weiß...
thank you for the summary & links!

I fear something's been lost in translation again. Or I hope it has >_> It hardly lacks precedent *cough*Laguna*cough*

And Weiß is great for this. I was highly amused by the girl called Squint in Gluhen ^^;

ah! Trabant is Chloe's owl! She can speak too...

Thank you for the translation!
Indeed, it's so unfair to keep us waiting: I was expecting Yohji to act up...
Williamgenkischuldich on 20th August 2006 22:15 (UTC)
I wasn't really expecting more from Youji, since I thought of him as a cameo. But I would like to know whether the two Chloes are going to live or die!
菖蒲eye_ame on 21st August 2006 04:32 (UTC)
I don't belierve both of them can die. None of the main characters ever dies in Koyasu's world. But the female Chloe... who knows...
Williamgenkischuldich on 25th August 2006 09:01 (UTC)
Well, there was Manx and Birman and Sena and Kyou, not to mention lots of bad guys. I think 'main characters' outside of the main four are fair game to Koyasu. It wouldn't surprise me if someone was created in Side B to die. :)
菖蒲eye_ame on 25th August 2006 09:11 (UTC)
Yes, Sena and Kyou... I'll miss Chloe!
yoinkmyspleen on 20th August 2006 19:12 (UTC)
Since I'm rather sad that the entirety of that went whooshing over the top of my head, is there any where that the translations of Side B are gathering?
Williamgenkischuldich on 20th August 2006 22:18 (UTC)
Yeah, they can be found here: http://www.kindachi.com/sideb.html although the middle sections are still not typed up properly. ^^

Ah, thanks v'ry much ^__^

No worries!

Ack! *Flails helplessly*

I understand that doing one chapter every four so months is probably less stressful for the mangaka, since they've been through a bit of stress a while back, but still...

It's going to be a while until the next volume comes out. *Sighs*

Thank you for the translations Kat! ^_^

What stress? I rarely keep up with the 'behind the scenes' stuff unless it's mentioned on my flist.
