But even so, Kubo-sensei wrote a volume poem for it!
(thanks Annie for all the pics from the IchiRuki FC at BA)
kondo wa ore no chikara o omae ni wakette yaru
This time, I will give my power to you.

Reverse of the cover:
There is in fact a new six-page interview with Kubo-sensei in this book, but since it wasn't at my bookstore today (;_;), we'll have to wait for scans. Will post those another time when we have the full information from it (but Kubo's a sweetie there too, for the record).
