First half of chapter 3 is up. And, roughly 16,500 words, 84 pages and a third of the book down the line, this seems like a good time for our first rundown.
You know, reading through this, what really strikes me is precisely how much they seem to have changed for the movie (in fact Aya and Michi's roles alone have changed entirely). Normally you'd think the source material would be the most fanservice-y (in terms of references to the games, not the girls kissing girls constantly), when it actually seems to be that the novel has nothing to do with the games and the film has gone back and put all of that stuff in. Sounds like Mari Asato and co have been doing a fantastic job with it. More excited to see it than ever.
