wow, finally got my Chronicle 2005.
It is quite a thick book, 300+ pages. The cover page folds out and there's a picture of the JC3000s Mirage Knights (same pic as the one in Knight Flags). Then on the first page, I was quite surprised to see an English introduction of FSS! I found out that most of the page titles, character names and some charts are listed in English. But of coz, I must emphasize that most of the text is in Japanese.
The first part "Basic Knowledge of FSS" consists of about 60 pages, mostly taken from Episode Guide, with minor changes. Then there is the explanation of knights (including a chart of genealogy of pure-blood), fatima (incl jp vol11 list in Eng), MH (incl JC3000s MK/3159 invasion list in Eng). The table is similar to the one in Character 6: Twin Tower. I'm not sure if u guys already have these in your Eng ver manga? The power balance chart is here too (is it to be taken seriously?! remember Laki & suezo...)
Second part is the characters (incl MHs) listing, sub-divided into 11 sections with each section corresponding to the JP volumes. Each section begins with a character/MH/Spaceship list (in JP & Eng!
), and then u get pages of pictures.
Third section "NT Serial Title Page Collection". Consists of all FSS title pages since the very first one in 1986. Pictures are too small
Last part is a FAQ (and blunder) section. This takes up 1/3 of the book. All in Jp.
All in all a thick book with no new info, except maybe some little description changes here and there, nothing drastic.
Maybe I'd take some pictures of the book later...
