Sayonara Piano Sonata: Encore Pieces

Author: 杉井 光 (Sugii Hikaru) 
Illustrator: 植田 亮 (Ueda Ryo)












Since then, time has moved forward.
All of us have matured a little.
But despite the fact that we are all flying in different directions in order to fully stretch our wings,
we are still soaring beneath the same sky.
That is easily understood after carefully listening to each of our singing voices.






















Chapters
Chapter: "sonate pour deux"
Chapter: If There's No Name on the Wing
Chapter: Stereophonic Love
Chapter: The Final Interview
Chapter: Nobody Sleeps Tonight



********************
"sonate pour deux" and Nobody Sleeps Tonight gives closure to the entire SPS series. The middle three chapters are side-stories.

"sonate pour deux" — narrated by Naomi
If There's No Name on the Wing — third person narrative on a guest performer for feketerigó
Stereophonic Love — third person narrative on Yuri
The Final Interview — narrated by Naomi / Kyouko
Nobody Sleeps Tonight — narrated by Tetsurou

Tetsurou gets no illustration, despite being the narrator. Kind of sucks.

  1. Thanks for posting. Wow, glad you're doing this. Yeah, Tetsurou gets no love from anyone. Oh well. At least he gets his time in the spotlight. Can't wait to read them.

    1. "Enjoy. I'll probably start working on Shinonome soon. Will probably revisit the other 3 chapters as a change of pace from Shinonome whenever I feel like it." - zgmfx09a, foreword on Piano Encore, Nobody Sleeps Tonight chapter

    Oh man, the author throw some tie in to SPS in his latest work.
    The protag's mom is probably Chiaki.

    Nice this feel like sort of spinoff for SPS.

    1. Your Profile Picture... That's Touma Kazusa right? Ahh! I can't wait for the Latter half of the VN to be translated! This series serves enough as a distraction though (great one at that)

  16. Tetsurou as an aged L huh? I'd surprisingly a suitable Analogy! Quite a fresh change of pace... Hope to see how their pre wedding days goes though... Hope they'll be another spin-off for that (cuz that'll be chaotic!)

    1. I think the translation is stopped, no?
      And also the vol 4 is completed, but the translator don't put in the afterwords which is maybe what the translator refer to 19th chapter and they never put afterwords in the end of every volume like how peoples on Baka-Tsuki do.
      I hope they will continue the translation though...

  19. I wish the encore would be fully translated one day...

  20. Are you going to finish the last volume? I would like to read it until the end and I think it is a shame to leave it unfinished since it's a beatiful story
