i hope i could find this one in my kinokuya .... i really2 want to get yamamoto's book !!!
From the ad in WJ #44.
Preview of the cover:
And, the posters and bookmark:
The bookmarks show the front (Leon, X symbol) and back (Reborn, Tsuna). The posters are definitely a bonus with the character book, but the bookmarks come only with the first printing.
Sometime this week, when I go pick up my magazines, I'll update with the rest of the guardians' translations. XD But, just to summarise what the rest of the ads tell you about the character book...
- A short story written by the Reborn novelist. From the excerpt, the story will be about Fuuta immediately after the Kokuyou arc, where his ranking abilities were damaged by Mukuro.
- All kinds of trivia will be revealed. Like, who sent Gola Mosca to the Varia? How many cups of coffee does Reborn drink in one day? What was Yamamoto's secret training in preparation for the autumn tournament? Who is Longchamp's new girlfriend!?
- New data will be added for all the character profiles.
On sale in Japan this Thursday!!
Wow that looks awesome. The cover of the jump looks really cool.
I too was condering what happened to Fuuta's ranking ability. Mukuro said he "lost" them I was worried, looks like they were only damaged.
Haaa ! I want to read those boook !
I hope we can get online translations of this, like we did with the One Piece and Naruto databooks.
I'm excited about the release of this.
People seem terribly concerned about the ages of the characters so... a whole bunch of character profiles were posted on 2ch.
I've extracted all the ages here.
The cover of the book is also officially released! Check it out on the first post of this thread.

Bianchi is 17?
I thought she'd be waaay older
Yeah but it's the japanese style to forget a few year because "younger is better, and after 20 year you are already old".
If I had to give an age for shonen character (in Reborn for example too) it would be most of the time 16/17 (16 for Tsuna and his classmates, for me bianchi would 20 year old at least).
At 14 you are a way too young to look like they are in manga at 14 .
But ho well it's a manga .

Haha you should see their heights O.O They're all so tallllll for 14 year olds. Not to mention 14 year old Japanese (no offense meant) -_-"""""
over 20 is old already? I'm feeling quiet young.
in my stories the main character is at least in his last high-school years ^^ I simply can't remember how it was to be a middle schooler XD I seem to have erased that time in my memory
but I guess it's because most people in japan reading manga are about 14-16
But the girls are too good developed (I think you know what I mean ^^) for 14
Shoichi is 14? strange I thought he's an elementary student ^^ he looks so young and geeky

P.S.: I was looking some photos from my last day in middle school, and yes, the girls were already more developed than we were. ><
I thought Bianchi would be waaaay older too. But, the most shocking to me is Belphegor. He's 16 now, so that means 8 years ago, during the Cradle affair, he was only 8. O_O
Does this look like an 8-year-old?
Whoa, its hard to judge his age because his eyes are covered by his hair. But yea 8 years old!?
And...he was a Varia at that age? lololol. I see, that's why they call him a genious.
And lol, the Kokuyou gang is pretty fucked up imo. Lol, Ken and Chikusa don't look like 14, they look a lot older than Tsuna and Co. And Chrome being 13? Plus, I thought Mukuro had Bianchi's age, lol.
