12/9/29 Gakken Updates

Surprisingly, Gakken is continuing to add updates to their Facebook page.

First up: A belated announcement of the release of the first issue in the new Science Life series: Evolution of Stars, Galaxies and the Universe. The mook came out on Sept. 18, with a cover price of 2,100 yen ($25 USD), but Gakken didn’t officially announce it on Facebook until the 26th. 144 pages. I’ve seen it at the bookstore in Maruya Gardens, in the science magazines section, and it does look good, with tons of glossy photos and various professors from Tokyo University talking about theory and what’s been measured so far. I’ll buy a copy when the amount of work I have right now tapers off and I can take the time to really savor it.

Second: The last page of the Evolution of Stars mook contains a “Coming Next” ad, (it’s also at the bottom of the vol. 1 Science Life webpage) which indicates that volume 2 will be about the birth of matter and the universe, with a tentative release date in the first part of December. Also 2,100 yen.

Third: Gakken shared a link to the Open Reel Ensemble/Braun Tube Band Facebook page, to state that they are currently on tour in Europe.
