If anyone for some reason has some kind of advance review copy of this or some kind of super secret proof of concept version or a copy that was supposed to be destroyed but wasn't, hit me up with whatever price you see fit.

To naprawdę dobra historia (lub historie) z cudownym bohaterem, jakim jest Kino. Historie poruszają, zaskakują. Ciężko przewidzieć, jaki koniec będzie miała historia w danym mieście. Polecam z całego serca!

How the hell is this book not in the English market? Why the hell am I reading volunteered translations? This should be officially translated and sold in bookstores! This stays hidden in Japan while stupid YA crap books get to be on the shelves. Shame.

Reading chapters here and there, and totally out of order. Good practice, and I love the series.

I bought this and volume 1 a long time ago, and only recently got around to reading them. They're good for my comprehension level, though I find that the irony can be a little too overt sometimes.
