Another break, but there’s a lot to look forward to next month! Hidamari will once again get a cover illustration and color pages and the long-awaited volume 8 will go on sale.

The good news is that despite the lack of chapter, volume 8’s cover was printed in an advertisement within the magazine. Update: Now in full color on Amazon.

On a more amusing note, Houbunsha added an official page and summary for volume 8 to the official website, but there’s an unfortunate typo in it. Matsuri’s name is incorrectly written as 茉莉 when the correct kanji are 茉里 (莉 happens to be the second kanji of Nori’s name). Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal, but because this is the official summary sent out to advertisers, several online retailers including Amazon are also now displaying the erroneous description. Oops! Update: It’s now been corrected in most places, but here’s a screencap of what it looked like.
