The side story roots of A was first published July 18, 2008. It gives an insight on Akiyama during his college years. More specifically the introduction of psychology in his life along with the professor Okabe Yukiya. The class he attends is given an assignment to decipher a letter and find out the characteristics of the person who sent the letter. Find out the origin of Akiyama in roots of A, you also get a sneak peak of what Nao looks like in high school. :3
Come here to discuss all the oneshots too.
Three Phase ~The Forbidden Divination~
roots of A #2 is currently in watercrowns possession and hopefully we will see a scan in the future.

Ah I see, thanks for clearing that up! ^^
Another quick question, has "Roots of A" volume 2 been scanlated/translated anywhere? I've only managed to find raws and I was thinking of translating it if no-one's already done it.
No scans of roots of A 2
I saved the raw back when it was on raw paradise, gave it to watercrown but no luck so far. It would be amazing if you translated if for us. It has a ton of text but if you're willing that would be awesome.
That'd be awesome! Please translate it! It'd be the perfect thing to kill time until the manga picks up again.
*facepalm* I appear to have downloaded the wrong raw from #raw-distro. Although it's labeled "v2", I guess that was "version 2" not "volume 2" T___T I ended up translating something that was already translated. I feel like an idiot now haha. Oh wells, I'll go search around for the correct raw and see if I can get anything translated over the weekend... ^^

Drmke, if you want to move our discussion to the roots of A thread, go ahead.
Done ~ Drmke

I thought Watercrown was translating&scanlating RoA2?
I gave them the raw 3 months ago and I haven't seen any updates from them besides 1 comment back on June 5th. I would be just as happy to see a translation, I could always follow the art with the raw. So it up for grabs for anyone to do anything.
Done, finally! here ^^
Sorry I had (and still have [sweat]) a couple of tests this week so I couldn't spend so much time translating... Plus it was wordy @__@
I can't begin to thank you lol.... i had been waiting for quite a while for at least a translation of the whole thing. Was there only that chapter though? I recall the first roots of akiyama thing had 5 chapters along with 2 other stories and whatnot....
roots of A #2 was published in a magazine, monthly young jump. While the roots of A was scaned as an entire volume, there were extra stories and one shots. Of course roots of A #2 could always get released in a tank version with more extras, only time will tell.
