Nice to meet you everyone, I’m the author SUNSUNSUN. Thank you very much for purchasing this work. If you didn’t buy it and borrowed it from a friend, please buy a copy for yourself. If you’re standing there reading in a bookstore, take it to the cashier.
Yes, you there, who thought ‘You’ve written quite an aggressive afterword for your debut novel’. Unfortunately, this is how SUNSUNSUN operates normally. I just happen to have decent cover sleeves. In fact, I’m still saving my speed within the legal limit for the editor. I’ll tell you what it’s usually like.
(I’m sorry, but I’m having a hard time keeping up. I’m sorry, but please be patient)
And well, that’s how it usually is. Huh? You haven’t written a page yet? I should’ve written 2000 characters easily but…. Well, I guess I don’t have a choice. Now that I’ve had my fun, I’m going to get a little more serious.
As I introduced myself in the comments on the cover sleeve, I’m an author from “Shosetsuka ni Narou”. However, not a “People who seriously aim for serialization” (serious type), rather a generally accepted “people who enjoy writing novels” (enjoy spirit). I rarely wrote proper serials, and only wrote short stories as I came up with them.
This work is the result of a short story that I submitted to “Shosetsuka ni Narou”, “The Neighboring Alya-san who is sometimes sweet in Russian”, which caught the attention of the editor and was written as a completely new work with the same concept. It’s like a promotion from a read-through to a serial, which is common in manga magazines. This was an unexpected event for me, the author.
As this is a completely new writing, the protagonist and the heroine are completely new and completely different, but what do you think? Even if just a little, I hope you found the heroine to be cute and the protagonist to be cool. Yuki? Of course she’s cute so I’m not particularly worried (Hey).
Finally, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the editor, Miyagawa Natsuki-sama, for the great help in writing this book. The illustrator, momoko-sensei, who drew a superbly beautiful illustration for this amateur author’s work. Tapioca-sensei for finishing the perfect short manga. Uesaka Sumire-sama, who voiced the heroine Alya. And Amasaki Kouhei-sama, who voiced Masachika.
Shimesaba-sensei and Kamishiro Kyousuke-sensei for their recommendation comments. And to all the readers who have picked up this work, I send you the greatest thanks of the century. Thank you very much! I hope to see you again in Volume 2. See you soon.
