Yeah, she's a master at getting into dangerous stuff. XD

I just flipped through some random pages in Novel 7 (which is technically novel 9), and there's this REALLY cute part on pg. 108 where Karin has a dream:

"Maaka... here, I want you to have this."

^ In the dream thing, he gives her an engagement ring, which I think is diamond. Karin thinks to herself that she doesn't care what kind of stone it is at all. She would be fine with even plastic because she loves him so much. ^w^

After that, Karin is all like, "Thank you, Usui-kun. You don't know how happy this makes... WHA-- KYAA!"

And in typical clumsy Karin fasion, she falls off her bed, embracing her pillow. :3

What makes this so adorable just has to be the picture on the left side of page!
It has her with the ring on her finger and she just looks so cute!

No, my scanner is dead (it was getting pretty old anyway). ;_;

Well, I'm saving up money to buy a new scanner ASAP so I'll try to get novel 7 (9) and novel 9 (11) scanned as soon as I can.

Translating the novels is a lot harder than the manga, BTW.

Sometimes, I can read through the pages at average speed, but only if I recognize the kanji on the page without having to look it up.

If I don't recognize the kanji, I can sometimes spend 30 minutes trying to identify it by radical or by writing it on IME pad (depends on how complex the character is).

The point is, sometimes translating 1 page can take 30 minutes, so that's why my progress can be very slow.

Oh, yeah, I understand. I can't even imagine how much work that must be....I definitely give credit to you! Kanji seems so hard, because there's so many ways to depict just one symbol, it seems. So that's OK if it's taking some time. Believe me; I can wait!=]

Does anybody else read the Karin novels?

I think they're really fun to read. ^^

Every novel has a mystery plot, so it adds a mystery element to the series that the manga doesn't have.

Umm, only thing about the novels I noticed is that the situations are very serious sometimes.
Like in the first novel, these girls that are jealous of Karin do mean things to her and call her a slut + she almost gets raped in the same volume.

I do find it funny how often Karin gets into these situations though. It's kind of like scooby doo or detective conan, where they always somehow find a mystery or things happen to them all the time. XD

If anybody wants the novels I can send them. I have the first one typed out and the second one is almost finished.

I also have all the pictures from novels 1-8, but I will upload them later.


thats awesome! i always wanted to read them but never got the chance yet.

I've been flipping to random pages trying to find cute stuff, and I found some juicy ones in novel 11! ^^

This is when Kenta is trying to untie Karin (she got taped down with duct tape. Yes, she gets kidnapped. AGAIN. XD)

Kenta and his morals are at it again:

pg.139-140

While untying the duct tape, Kenta mutters something to himself.

"...chance. That could have been a chance..."

"Chance?"

Kenta's shoulder shook in surprise. He didn't expect an answer.

"Y... You heard me?"

When he turned around, his entire face was red.

Apparently, he had voiced the thoughts going through his head unconsciously.

"I-it's not what you think, Maaka! I didn't mean it like... I wasn't thinking about touching you or anything!"

Giving an incoherent excuse, he digs an even deeper grave for himself.
He turns his back to Karin and starts banging his forehead repeatedly against the wall.

"AHHHH! What the hell am I thinking?! We're still high school students! I shouldn't be thinking of perverted things in this situation!"

"U-Usui-kun, you're shouting too loud..."

Not long ago, Karin met Kenta's father, Shuusei. She remembers his father having a similar reaction.

"S-sorry..."

Looking to the side, he covers his face in embarrassment.

(Yeah, that's pretty much the whole page 140 right there)

Oh yeah, and yet ANOTHER bitchy girl falls for Kenta. There's even a pic in the novel with her hugging him and he's got this face like, "I AM NOT AMUSED. " lol!

For the time being, I don't. (because I don't have a scanner yet)

I'm getting lots of money for Xmas to hopefully buy one, though.

But the cover looks like this:

(this is 11)



Here are the other 2 that come after novel 8:

(this is 9)



(this is 10)



I own novel 9 and novel 11, but not 10 (because it's always out of stock...)

Chronologically, this is the 11th novel even though it says "9".
That's because there were 2 specials made in-between novels 6 and 7, but they weren't counted the same way.

BTW, novel 11 takes place in the middle of volume 11 of the manga, novel 9 takes place just after volume 9, and novel 10 takes place after volume 10.

Here's another good one from novel 11... OMG another love speech! (you just gotta love those)

pg.160

Infuriated, Kenta shouts at the top of his lungs.

"Shut the hell up!"

"You don't know anything about Maaka, so don't go saying crap like that!
Maaka... Maaka is... she's always worried about me... even if I cause her pain or say something that hurts her... she forgives me! Maaka has done so much for me!"

*blah blah blah nobody gives a crap about Touko's reaction*

"So what if we're different species! She might be a vampire, clumsy, and not the brightest... but she's also very kind and shy... that's who Maaka is!"

Even though she's not human, I love her!"

Wow !! This is amazing so cute!

I think it's SO ridiculous that the rest of the novels won't be released in America! Looks like I have ALOT of Japanese to learn...

The novels seem like they're getting so amazing

Yeah I think this novel is pretty good too. But I was wondering if zonnikku was going to post links to download the novels here, or if you download them from that link-out at zonnikku's profile?
