Here we are again. I hope all of you enjoyed volume thirteen of In Another World With My Smartphone.
There was a lot of stuff going on in this volume, so we only included one interlude right at the very start.
In the webnovel, Aer doesn’t fully settle into Brunhild until a bit later, but the circumstances seemed fair enough to mix up the plot structure here. I didn’t change much of the main story, but I added a small part with Sue toward the end and a few tweaks here and there.
Actually, while I was working on the manuscript for this volume, I worked myself to physical exhaustion and ended up hospitalized. I need to take better care of my health. Everyone, please don’t forget to take it a little easier in the harsh summer months. I’ve been discharged from the hospital now, but I don’t want to go back in there any time soon.
The Brunhild Festival was the main attraction of this volume, so I hope you all had a good time there. Have you ever been to a festival before?
In Sendai, there are a lot of festivals. There’s Tanabata, the Jozenji Street Jazz Festival, the Michinoku YOSAKOI Festival, and a lot of others like that.
I’ve lived in Sendai for a long time now, but I haven’t actually gone to any of hem...
Because I live nearby, I always tell myself that I can go any time I want...
But I guess I just never did. Then again, the combination of the summer heat and the busy crowds often makes me feel ill. I get a bit light-headed in busy places.
Little town festivals or smaller events are nice, though. I’ll often drop in for a candy apple or a crêpe.
I was thinking about going this year, but... the hospitalization kind of messed that up, so it would probably be best if I skipped on it again.
My health really wanes in summer... That’s actually why my pen name, Patora Fuyuhara, has the ‘冬’ (Fuyu) part in it because I have more of an affinity for winter.
Anyway, let me get to my special thanks.
To my illustrator, Eiji Usatsuka, I love the cover illustration for this volume. You really brought it to life. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
Tomofumi Ogasawara, thanks for handling the mecha designs as usual. I love how you made the purple crown look. I’m looking forward to seeing how your interpretations of the other crowns come out later on.
As always, K... I’m sorry for causing you any inconveniences, but I’m really happy to work with you. I look forward to hearing from you next.
And, once again, to everyone at Hobby Japan editorial department involved with this book’s publication, you have my deepest thanks.
But I can’t forget to thank you, dear reader, and everyone who first stumbled upon my story while browsing Shousetsuka ni Narou.
