Bungaku Shoujo English Cover Leaked?

April 28, 2010 at 2:08 pm 3 comments

Well, this blog is known for reporting not only the widely known news (or semi-known) but also for exploring news that other’s somehow seem to have missed. This would be one of those times.

Posted on MyAnimeList, a user by the name of “Desolato” posted what he claimed to be the English edition cover for the newly licensed Yen Press light novel “Bungaku Shoujo” due out this July under the English title “Book Girl and The Suicidal Mime”.

Whether the cover is official or not has not been confirmed, and no original source for where the image was found was given.

But if what we see now is in fact the official cover, I give them a huge round of applause. This would indeed be their best attempt at a mainstream English cover yet.

Thoughts? Opinions? Leave them below.

    He probably got it from the Yen Press catalog on Hachette’s site.

    Go to the bottom of the page, and click on July-August catalog for Yen Press.

    ‘She’ indeed got the cover from the online catalogue of Yen Press, so I’m sure this’ll be the official cover. And to be blunt, yes, I quite like it.

    Pretty much already wrote my opinion on it in the forum thread you referred to. This blog was a nice find, by the way.

    ‘Yours’ truly,

    I think this is great:D I haven’t read Bungaku Shoujo yet, but the cover gives the feeling of “a great book”. I hope this doesn’t end up in the manga section. (Altrough I’m not involved in this case)
