Annie has some yummy gleanings for you this morning from 2ch and sketchbaka did the translations.
From the IR FC at BA and Annie:
Some of you already know about Bleach Novel: Letter from the Other Side is releasing a new edition. A quick info for those who didn't know what it is, it's the first Bleach novel that came out before Honey Dish. It based on the first 14 (or 10?) chapters of Bleach manga and yes, it's Kubo approved but he didn't write it. This new edition has extra chapter or something.
