I do hope when they return to the present the story switches to Shiner and what his life's like before getting recruited. When Amamiya said Shiner wasn't a warrior and the fact that his ability is teleport made me think he was coward in the past and might have been bullied.
Since Mithra's plans will be revealed soon if not this week, which is the last important mystery, I hope the story transitions into a character-driven battle manga.

ａｎｏｔｈｅｒ ｃａｌｌ２ 未来は君の手の中に
Hmm, the odd thing is that the page has already been deleted from Amazon It was there previously and you can still see it in Google's cache. So, Amazon probably messed up and either there is no such thing (someone did it as a prank maybe) or they put it up too early (there could be an announcement in the next issue of Jump, or something).
If it's true it'll likely be announced along with the date for the next volume. How many volumes are left, two or three?

volume 15 should be out february fourth according to amazon japan. alltogether I think it will be packed into 16 volumes
Volumes 15 and 16 are coming out in February and March respectively, this was announced with the final chapter iirc
Each volume normally has 8 chapters but I think they'll need to put 9 in some volumes to fit 145 chapters into 16 volumes...
2nd Light Novel Confirmed. from 2ch:
Best I can make of it:
"2nd Light Novel to be released March 4th!!"
"PSYREN another call 2 Your Future is in Your Hands"
"Combine the covers of Volume 16 and Light Novel!!"
"After a decade, the adventures of Ageha Yoshina continue!
The mystery of how "Mithra" was born will be revealed!
Ageha and Amamiya go on another date! With the return of Abyss!?"
There will be more illustrations and pin-up spread in this one as well. Can't make out the last line, but I think it says "To be continued in Psyren".
If by "last line" you mean the "もちろんーーー", then it says "Of course, Iwashiro-sensei will be...." My brain fails me at 2am, and I can't think of what kanji that blur is (the second is 影?), but I'm pretty sure this is saying that Iwashiro-sensei is backing the novel/approving the stories (sort of like how Oda-sensei wrote the story for One Piece's Strong World movie).
Oh and the title is "PSYREN another call 2: The future is in your hands"
Sweet!! I really hope that Viz will release the novels over here along with the manga volumes. Speaking of which, I wonder what's going on with that?
They currently don't have a release date listed for Volume 1 on their site, and since it's running in the magazine there shouldn't be any issues in terms of a release. Maybe their delaying it to promote the volume releases being uncut or something? I've noticed some the dialog seems a bit toned down from what I read in the fan translations(noticeably the "virgin" joke in chapter 1 was absent). Then again fan translations aren't always that accurate so I can't say for sure...
will this mean anything in terms of a new psyren manga? There are some lose ends still
Psyren wasn't exactly unpopular, it just wasn't as popular as other series featured in Jump. Its a real shame though. Psyren was doing pretty well before the story moved into the 5th round. The rankings were better when the plot was being developed, they got worse due to all the fighting (which is weird considering how cool the fights were). At least the series ended better than I had expected.
