Hello there, Ebisu Seiji here. Thank you very much for picking up the 8th installment of ‘Ore Ga Suki Nano Wa Imouto Dakedo Imouto Janai’.
This novel is something like the turning point, and the beginning of a change in our protagonist Yuu. Because of the previous incident, he finds himself growing more and more conscious of Suzuka. During this confusion, he then receives a phone call from a certain publisher. At first, he is a bit wary, and as expected, his novel didn’t make it to the end… However, he instead receives an offer where an editor will support him with advice and tips. Naturally, Yuu blindly jumps in on the offer, and goes to work on his new story together with Suzuka. And then, his final answer about what he wants to truly write—That’s the story this time around. How did you enjoy it?
His relationship with Suzuka, and his own dream as well. The situation is undergoing an immense change, but we’re still far from done, so I hope that you’ll continue to look after them. As the author, I felt like this volume as a whole became a turning point, and the future of the story depends on my feelings from here on out.
Now, to change the flow of the conversation a bit. I participated in the 30th year anniversary party for Fantasia Bunko the other day. Naturally, we have a celebration here at Fantasia Bunko every year, but since it’s been thirty years since the founding, it turned into a rather big event. There was a long line of assortments and goods, shows, and I even found a Suzuka cosplayer! I was really moved…
And what was I participating in? Well well well… A signing session. It certainly wasn’t that big of a deal, but I still felt nervous during the whole procedure. Not to mention that this series’ illustrator Gintarou-san was even participating, which left us with no signing papers left. As always, I felt very moved to personally meet all the fans that keep supporting me, and indirectly those siblings as well. I received passionate cheers, and passionate opinions and feelings about the novels, which made me very happy. People who had only bought the first novel, people who had bought all the other volumes, people who had awakened to their love for little sister novels thanks to my series, and even people who came here by reading my previous works. Being able to listen to all their voices really moved me from the bottom of my heart.
For the people who couldn’t participate in the event, but still continue to support the series from a distance, and to every wonderful person who is involved in the distribution of this series, I want to give my thanks as well, although sadly not in person.
Really, thank you very much.
And here’s hoping that I can meet you all again in the future—
The 28th of October 2018, Ebisu Seiji.
