I think I first heard of this series when I was browsing through a manga scan sight. Reading the synopsis it seem like the kind of story I would like as it explores the reality of what girls who enter adolescence go through (that and it look cute), but the people who were translating it abandon it a long time ago with only a very few chapters (I think two chapters) to show. I decided to not read it and instead wait until I learn Japanese so I can buy the manga somewhere and read it.

Now hearing that this story has an anime adaptation once again makes me want to give this series a try, but it seems like it won't be possible for me. I can't find the books no matter where I search online, and what makes this even worse is that this series is so obscure outside of Japan that not even ANN has any information about it in their encyclopedia (even the author/comic artist that made this book isn't in the encyclopedia) . I wonder if I could just ask any online store that sells products from Japan if they can order those books. I think I heard it's possible.

Well anyway it's good for for the mangaka that her story is getting adapted into an animated series. I'm sure she is happy for it.

@Aquasakura

At least cdjapan lists volumes 1-3, just search '12 Sai' on their site.

Finding this particular issue of magazine was a bit harder. Then I noticed it was spelled as Chao on cdjapan...

Oh thank you for actually taking the time to find this. Very Happy I look and I saw all the products you mention (and they are very cheap too). I should have thought of looking through cdjapn. I guess for me it's because it's been a while since I browse through sites that sale products from Japan (I only look through a wesbite store called yesasia).

I deeply appreciated it. ^ ^

P.S I would imagine you must had a hard time finding the magazine considering the site spelled the name differential. I wonder if this is misspelling or maybe that's what the magazine is also spelled as.
