The Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (Saekano: Raising a Boring Girlfriend) main series has ended for quite a while now, but that hasn’t stopped Fujimi Fantasia Bunko for churning out more Saekano content. Saekano Memorial 2, a fanbook which serves as supplementary material for the recently released movie Saekano Fine will be released on November 20, 2019.
This fanbook will include 100 pages of not only include short stories that haven’t been previously published in the novel, but also newly written ones. It will also feature interviews with the Saekano Fine film cast members as well as Fumiaki Maruto and Kurehito Misaki regarding secret details of the movie’s production.
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (Saekano: Raising a Boring Girlfriend) Fine is an anime film which concludes the story from the previously adapted two anime seasons of Saekano light novel series. This movie brings closure to the story by providing an adaptation of the later volumes of the novels, mainly volume 11-13, while also presenting an original epilogue of sorts. The following is a translated summary of the movie, with spoilers. If you have read the original light novel series until the end, feel free to skip to the epilogue. Completed summaries of each plot point in this movie can be experienced from the light novels; you can find the other summaries here or buy the light novel yourself.
Following the thirteenth volume of its main story, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend) light novel series is finally getting a new volume titled Saekano FD2 (Fan Disc 2). Just like the previous Saekano FD, this novel will cover side stories of the characters we have all known and love, while also giving as a look at a new character… One you’d probably never expect to appear. The book is slated for release on November 20, 2018.
Sorry if this isn’t an update on Saekano FD2 or any good news in particular as you would expect. It took me a while to be able to write this, partly because I’ve been busy with my ER night shifts and personal responsibilities, but also because I needed some time to be emotionally calm enough to be able to talk about this.
As some of you may have known, my personal Facebook account has been disabled without any warning from Facebook on November 5, 2018 (which coincidentally is my birthday, weirdly enough). I have tried sending an appeal multiple times, but I only received template responses without any proper follow-ups. I tried coming up with possible reasons of the completely unwarranted block and keep sending more additional information in each appeal, but to no avail. I’ve talked about the details in the Discord server and despite the help, it doesn’t seem to be making things better for recovering the account. I think it’s safe to say that the chance of me getting the account back is very slim.
Personally, losing the page is one thing, but what strikes me as completely disheartening is the fact that I’ve lost my personal account. Facebook isn’t an ideal platform and I do have various qualms about it, but it is the place I’ve frequented for almost ten years. There are a lot of connections, bonds, and things I’ve personally built with time in it that I don’t think will ever be replaceable by any amount of money. It really saddens me that I have to bid farewell to everything I have written and shared, along with the friends I’ve been keeping in contact up until now.
If you have enjoyed anything I’ve shared up until now—translations, news, game playthroughs, guides, music covers, charts, analyses, short stories, whatever it is—I really appreciate it. I sincerely want to keep connecting with you, and I don’t want to stop writing just because of this accident. I’m aware that I had been a lot more active on Facebook in terms of posting contents like up-to-date news, translations, or insightful readings than my other platform. I’ll see if I can get more stuffs up on this site instead, though I’m still not used to it and still recovering from the shock.
I want to thank my friends around me and all over the world who have tried to help me solve this problem and getting me back on Facebook. I personally don’t know how things will turn out for now, with even the last alternative being pretty grim on the outlook due to Facebook’s extremely dumb algorithms. At the moment, I really want to focus on handling my real life responsibilities while tackling this problem slowly. I don’t think I have much room to breath since I still have to prioritize work and managing events in real life.
It will be a great help if you can share this post to let more people know about the situation, since I don’t want to make people confused because of the page’s disappearance. Also, if you have any advice on platforms that I could rely on to expand my contents safely, feel free to ring me up. As of now, you can still keep on following me on Twitter (@MagnAvaloN) or by joining my Discord server (https://discord.gg/FZYTtNX).
