So, Psyren will have a novel. Wonder which part will get novelized. Maybe when Matsuri still a drifter? Or Asuka's past? Or Grigori children story? Amamiya when Ageha still not a drifter? Elmore children?
Will it considered canon or only if/alternative story?

(I rushed here on first sight of Konetta san but (of course) someone already come first.... ^_^) Yay!
I wonder which part will get novelized - but on second thought, unlike other Staples (non-bighits) like Sket Dance and Muhyo, or even big names like reborn -
Psyren is one single big story, very heavy on details (like a time-travelling Supernatural Suspense should) and thus very suitable to get Serialized novel.
If that happens we may get more details on items like telephone card, nuance of each Psi or what Drifters really experiences/feel at the moment of time Drift etc. Plus a complete WORLD VIEW.
I hope it's a Novel series (the first volume can deal with Manga vol 1-3), but I'll of course very welcome any special non-Manga arcs like 1) Elmore children (backstory) or (2) Surprise attacks from WISE underlings in 2008 and thus one complete suspense battle
Details have to wait though XD
I too hope the novel will help it to have an anime. Because with anime, it will help Psyren breath longer.
I also hope the author chosen for writing the novel will able to truthfully draw Psyren in the novel and not writing things that contradict with the manga.
Serialized novel is good, but I think it will be good only if Iwashiro himself write it or he deeply involved in the making. If not, well...
Found this in 2ch :
Author for the novel is SOW (author of Shiritsu El Nino Gakuen series)
Compiled of a lot of secret episodes of popular character that can only be read in the novel.
Candidate for the story ?
1. The story of the Brain Beast until they came to Amakusa
2. Frederica and Marie first sneaking mission, the birth of Sexy Rose
3. Abyss and Ageha 1-day date
4. Fubuki usual day
Planned on sale early September. And Iwashiro and SOW will meet and talk about the novel from the plot.
Nice to know that Iwashiro will deeply involved in the making. And Abyss and Ageha date!?

Otsuuuu! The original Japanese.
914 ：名無しさんの次レスにご期待下さい：2010/06/16(水) 20:02:44 ID:zSsIi7zC0
So it looks like it'll be early Sep.
And Iwashiro will be meeting up wit hSOW to discuss right from the bones, starting from plot.
And my feeling....
I immsensely welcome the birth story of Fu-chan and Marie's first mission XD
Brain beast..... most people are saying "who wants that anyway" but I think it's Iwashiro sensei who wants that in, that he is one serious (bent?) on making a post-Armageddon story and he wants all readers to get a full view. (All other episodes are "cute" episodes, some fanservice types, that publisher want to sell novel with.)
Ageha and Abyss......^_^; em. It looks just like a hyper version of normal date with Amamiya? Amamiya randomly handcuffs guys and asks for troublesome favours anyway ^_^; I remember in Akamaru Jump special she managed to be 4 hours late for a date she set with Ageha.
The date that time is also with Hiryuu though. I don't know about the brain beast one. But I really want to read no 2 and 3. For Fubuki, a present one and future one will have different type of reader. I'm not interested with someone's wife so present Fubuki will be better.
So the novel will have Abyss date, Kagetora first meeting with Matsuri, Fu-chan found her old house at Kobe and fought Tavoos and her coronation as Flame Queen, ? chapter (looks like Miroku to me...) and omake about a diary that describe everyone daily life.
Looks interesting, wonder if the other story candidates will make it to novelization. Maybe they will if the novel sell well.
The website says that the light novel is called "another call1". Does that mean there's going to be future novels? I sure hope so !
Is that a cover for Vol. 13 or for the Graphic novel?
Novel, at the top corner you can see another call 1. Plus you guys have been using the convo thread as novel info, so I just posted it here.
It comes out on Sept. 3rd, the same day volume 13.

We'll use this as the Psyren Novel thread. Moving pertinent postings here.
To be honest I'm not all that impressed by the novel's cover. Sure, maybe it's because we don't have an HQ image of it yet, but it just seems badly structured. For a better novel cover, and one that uses the same comic format, check out Reborn!'s novels. I also don't like where the logo and author's name are at.
Oh well... here's hoping novel number 2 has a better cover.
Main cast :
Their untold stories will unfold in this Novel.
Just slightly, we will tell here what is to come!
File 1 : Amamiya Sakurako ~ Don't you want a kiss?
Ageha went shopping with Amamiya..... who couldn't even look into his eyes out of shame.
Her other personality, "Abyss", has shouted out loud what she wouldn't whisper....
"I love you! I love you! Of all the living things on this world I love you the most!"
Thinking of that, she falls into the loop of self-despising thoughts again.
"Someone... someone get me out of this situation..."
And the one that materialized into front of Ageha was...?
File 2 : Hyoudou Kagetora ~ The Battling Chivalry
Back in an alley, Kagetora collapsed.
.....It was a shockingly strong opponent. The steel-like body of his was riddles with bullets.
His thoughts was on someone he should protect - someone that has been taken away by his enemey.
"I've got to save him..." was all his mind has, but his is conciousness was fading as fast as blood was draining away from his body. "...I've to die here?"
"Oiiieeee" comes a woman puking at the alley.
The Episode of Matsuri and Kagetora's encounter.
File 3 : Frederica ~ Birth of the Flames
Since the "date of Rebirth", the Elmore Wood children has delved deep into the "Root".
In order to built their powers to defeat the WISE, they have been hiding out of sight from the ground.
During a route survillance, Frederica approached Kato City (Note, probably misspel, will correct later....)
There stood the ruins of the half-burnt house what she used to call home but destroyed herself.
Revived was her childhood memories, and abandonment by her parents...
Then, a crowd of Tavoos closed in to attack her...
The story of Pyro Queen, and day before she was crowned.
File 4 : Miroku ~ The Endless Poem
"He"..... heard a "Song".
That was no song normal humans hears out of their ears, but a special song audible only to abnormal people like him.
The "Song" invited him.
So he approached the place the "Song" directed him to.
The way he was shown, was the shocking was that lowly humans will end...
"His" story, before he set his stage.
The unknown dairy of someone, detailing what she(he?) saw of everyone's daily lives!
I believe this has more information on the light novel (second part) crossposted.
