Stage Nana - New content?
 
Hope you've all been well. I stumbled upon the Stage Nana website today:

http://stage-nana.sakura.ne.jp/

I noticed there's a new artwork of Setsumi-sensei. Also, the Narcissu font has changed a bit. Thirdly, it says something about a "7/25" release? I won't lie, I haven't been on the site in months. Anyway, could someone explain what's going on? Is there some sort of new release :)?

They appear to have published a new product:

I believe it's a novel? Has anyone bought this? If so, is it good :D? Will there be a visual novel released?

That is all. Thanks heaps.

Yes, Water Marginal is Stage Nana's C74 release. I know nothing about it, but I'm sure it's decent. Might as well check it out if you're interested.

Mizu no Marginal is a novel thingie stage nana put out for C74. It's about 140 pages and written in a light novel style. I haven't finished reading it yet, but it's a bit whimsical and has a generally lighthearted tone. The story isn't finished yet, so there'll be a sequel of some sort to continue it. Rumor has it that someone wants to turn Marginal into a manga already, so you might see it at some point... maybe in one of Kadokawa's lineup?

Marginal was available from Messesanoh's doujin shop last I had saw 2 weeks ago. The visual Fan Book was also there, though I'm not sure of the stock now.

The thing released on 7/25 was a the Narcissu light novel published by Media Factory. ~260pages. It's an adaptation of the first game, with added material (what appears to be a few scenes and even an occasional other character. Yuka from Narci2 appears in one of the pictures in the front).

Running joke about that light novel is that for some reason it calls Kataoka a "Charismatic Creator"... not only on the web introduction on the book on MF's site, but also on the little advertising sleeve thing that comes wrapped around it.

For anyone who wants a copy, there's plenty on amazon.co.jp and bk1. While trawling through Akiba last month I saw it once in a while hiding, but it's not easily found in stores any more over there.

The phrase "water marginal" apparently has been Mr kataoka's favourite quote for years, for reasons unknown. Hence it's reasonable to suspect he wrote that into the novel.

Well, I think I will get it sooner or later anyway. Probably later :p

Mm, in the Afterward, he writes that the title 水のマージナル comes from the name of a PSY-S that he loves.

Whatever that means! \o/
