Previously, Indonesian book publisher Penerbit Haru has hinted the release of the second novel of Honobu Yonezawa’s Classic Literature Club (koten-bu) series Credit Roll of the Fool in Indonesia. On Sunday (15/4), Penerbit Haru’s social media account listed the novel as one of the seven book that will be released by Penerbit Haru in May.
Previously, Penerbit Haru has published the first novel in Koten-bu series, Hyouka, in December 2017. The first novel also gets an Indonesian edition cover designed by Cynthia Yanetha, while Andry Setiawan translates the novel into Indonesian.
Written by Honobu Yonezawa in 2001, Hyouka tells the story of Hōtarō Oreki who was forced to join The Classic Literature Club in his new school by his older sister. There, he met with various persons: Satoshi Fukube, the self proclaimed “database”; Mayaka Ibara, his acquaintance from middle school; and Eru Chitanda, a person full of curiosity. Oreki then got involved in a mystery from 33 years ago: about Chitanda’s Uncle, about what happen at the Kanya Festival at that year, and about the meaning of “Hyouka” itself.
The novel has inspired an anime adaptation in 2012 produced by Kyoto Animation and also a manga adaptation in the same year. The novel had also been adapted as a live action film that debuted in November 2017.
