Jog looks at the upcoming offerings from Fanfare/Ponent Mon and wonders if the publisher is really going to release seven volumes of The Times of Botchan during the remainder of 2007, as could be construed from this piece at Anime News Network.
I checked in with Fanfare’s Stephen Robson, who said that volumes four through ten are in the making but not on the 2007 calendar:
“I expect to get two more volumes out this year to bring us to the half way point then let’s see what pans out next year. But I do expect a quicker pace (but not too quick).”
Even without the five additional Botchans, 2007 does seem to promise a comparatively heavy line-up for Fanfare. That’s a good thing, obviously.
