They arrived! They arrived! They arrived!
Sakura Hiden: Thoughts of Love, Riding Upon a Spring Breeze (サクラ秘伝 思恋、春風にのせて)
Shikamaru Hiden: A Cloud Drifting in Silent Darkness (シカマル秘伝 闇の黙に浮ぶ雲)
I had such a long day today so I was really excited to get a text message from my husband telling me I had a package. As soon as I got home and saw the Amazon.jp box (odd packaging for books) I knew exactly what they were. It always amazes me how fast I receive items from Amazon Japan. In this case I ordered them on the 25th of April which was a Saturday!
I just excitedly took these photos in poor lighting on my phone therefore I will take better quality photos later on. The artwork inside each novel is lovely! It is definitely an upgrade to Kakashi Hiden as I can’t even remember that being in colour? The pastel colours are lovely in Sakura’s artwork. I intend to read Shikamaru Hiden first as I believe they go in order and then follow on with Sakura Hiden. Though Sakura Hiden actually interests me a lot more. I wonder if it explains why Sasuke is away from the village in Naruto Gaiden? It could also shed some light on Sarada. Ahhh! Shikamaru you better be interesting too.
For now they sit next to my bedside table as I haven’t lost enough interest to move them to the book shelf just yet!
