According to Ogiwara-sensei’s August 18 blog post, she has been asked to write a collection of short stories branching off of the Magatama trilogy (Dragon Sword and Wind Child, Mirror Sword and Shadow Prince, Usubeni Tennyo). From what she describes, these short stories will be about things that don’t come up in the original novels but are related to the events that happen. So perhaps we can expect to see more of Chihaya, Saya, and the gang? :]
This prospective anthology will either be serialized in magazines or published in a single volume; it hasn’t been made clear yet. Japanese fans are excited and supportive, so maybe we fans overseas will be able to see these stories one day in English along with the rest of the trilogy.
Thanks to Cathy and Reina Hirano for translating the news! ♥
