No, Thank You!!! Bonus Short Story

We managed to fit the four short stories from the original Japanese release of No, Thank You!!! into our hardcopy’s mini-artbook. While we didn’t have space for it in the hardcopy, parade was kind enough to give us a fifth one (previously only published in the game magazine Cool-B), so we thought we’d share it you all today.

This particular short story was originally published in Cool-B Vol. 54, March 2014 Edition (Released February 4th, 2014) as a belated birthday celebration for Kouichi. If you enjoy this one, there are four more in our Limited Edition Hardcopy of the game! If you happen to be going to Anime Expo, you’ll be able to snag a copy a little early, and pick up some other merchandise while you’re at it too.

Happy Birthday 1/16

“Hiroshi.”
“Hm?”
It was 5 p.m., an hour before sótano opens. Hiroshi gave a crystal-clear, half-hearted answer as he made ice balls at the counter. He didn’t seem like he was in the mood to talk at all. How dare you…
I’m just going to have to play a prank on you now! But if his hand slips while he’s holding that ice pick and someone gets hurt, that could be a problem, so I’ll wait for a break during work and… wait, he’s not even reacting to my silence.
I’ll get you for this, Hiroshi! This is what you get for ignoring me!
“Finishing move! Booty grab!”

Hardcopy Fulfillment Improvements

Nene2

Thanks to your support we’ve been able to provide more and more hardcopies of games––and wow have you been ordering a ton of eroge! But as a result, recently our needs have outgrown our current fulfillment system for physical orders.

We’d like to let everyone know that we’re currently in the process of upgrading our physical-copy order fulfillment system. This new fulfillment system should provide a better experience for everyone involved.

We won’t be able to ship out hardcopy orders for the next week or two while we’re implementing the new system. You can still place orders for hardcopies as you usually would, just be aware that even current, otherwise in-stock titles will not be shipping immediately. We will notify everyone once shipping has resumed.

We appreciate your patience. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at support@mangagamer.com if you have any questions or concerns about current orders.
