Ouran Special Short Story and Commemoration

The Ouran Commemoration in Lala Special issue 12/2010 contains a lot of stuff.  I stuck to the stuff that was most interesting to me and took into consideration what might appear in Volume 18 when it's finally released in English.  Five chapters were selected as key chapters to re-read.  They are chapters 4, 20, 36, 52, and 80.  These key chapters were reprinted and took up the bulk of the commemoration.  Interspersed between the chapter re-prints were interviews and Ouran trivia.  I imagine most of this stuff will appear when Volume 18 is finally released in English from Viz, plus, my interest level is low, so I decided not to translate it.  At the end, a 60-page sequel one-shot was announced.  It will appear in Lala 3, which releases in Japan on January 24th 2011.  We will, of course, translate it and it will be posted on this blog for a month.  Here is the preview:

And now for the short story.  It's only 6-pages, but it's fun! Though, I was hoping for something longer that actually extended the story...

This will be retired at the end of February when we retire the January 2011 one-shot.

Next up is either "Pika Ichi" chapter 4 or the long version of "Furou Kyoudai".
