Hi everyone! I’m doing a giveaway on Twitter for both the traditional and simplified versions of 2a1o in celebration of the simplified version being announced! This giveaway ends on September 30th at 12AM EST.
There will be two winners, one for each version! It’s also open internationally, though I can only cover up to $50 USD shipping. If you’d like to enter, go and check out my tweet~ You just need to reply to enter!
The traditional version by Pinsin Studio came out last year and it’s the one I’ve posted pictures of before! There are three volumes in total with cover art by Gearous. There are also two exclusive extras, To My Wen Zhimian and Nesting. It’s available on books.com.tw for international shipping. Here are links for book 1, book 2, and book 3.
The simplified version by Via Lactea is now open for preorders, and it comes with three books, postcards, stickers, a red packet, and a self-criticism (lol) as well as an exclusive extra! Here is the link to the set. Please note that these are preorders! The books are expected to ship in 2022. The English title is But He Became an Omega.
Preorders for the simplified version open on September 4th at 12PM Beijing Time. They will remain open until early November, and return for a normal ordering period after. Also, if you order within the first two hours you’ll get a special signature by the author Li Dong Ren, and if you order within the first 24 hours you’ll get a normal signature! Also, Via Lactea ships from Canada and accepts credit card payments 😀 However, please be aware that if you live outside of Canada shipping can be very expensive! I know that many people ship to a China address (since it’s free shipping) and then use a forwarding service to ship their books to their home for a cheaper price. For the giveaway, I can’t research proxies for you but if you win then I can work something out with you 🙂
Also, with that said, I’ve decided to lock my (future) translations of the extras in the physical copies and only provide the password for those who own the physical copy. However, I’ll send you the password for the translation for extras in both copies even if you’ve only bought one of them. If you’re interested in the exclusive extras but you’re not able to buy the physical editions, check out the giveaway! The 18+ content is technically exclusive, but it’s available online, so I’ll still accept JJWXC receipts for those chapters 🙂 and I’m starting school soon but I promise to have the next chapter up ASAP!
