An anonymous Japanese BBS leaker has posted an image of an ad print, revealing the special edition of "Touhou Suzunaan ~ Forbidden Scrollery." Vol. 6, bundled with "an image music CD from ZUN" and a 32-page mini-artbook (same size as the manga). The special edition sells for JPY 1800 (plus tax), and will be released on Dec 10.

The ad claims the pre-order for the special edition ends on Sep 30, but judging from the manga's previous special edition for Vol. 3, this supposedly "limited production" will be available everywhere in Japan upon release anyway.

Both Suzunaan Vol. 5 and this month's Comp Ace magazine have a street date of April 26. As the former has already been shipped to the bookstores, the leaker must have obtained them by working in related businesses.

"Image song", if you are not familiar, is a Japanese transmedia concept for music that conveys the idea of an anime character, etc.; unlike character themes, they are typically not featured in the actual show. So that just means the disc will have new songs written for the manga, same as all previous CDs bundled with Touhou books.

I want to say there's still a chance the normal edition will also contain the CD, and it's only the artbook that's special edition-exclusive, but it's more likely we really need to pay an extra 1000 yen for the CD and an artbook not even big enough for Moe Harukawa's larger artworks. The reign of Kadokawa has begun.

Also from the leaker are some spoilers of Vol. 5's character design drafts:

About "Image song", it's meant to be an approximation of the character, can we make the assumption that it will have vocal lyrics (due to the status of "Image song") or that it will be fully instrumental (as the rest of the Touhou songs)? Disregard that, i didn't read the part of "same as all previous CDs bundled with Touhou books"

It's not a panel from a chapter, it's from the bonus art section at the end of the volume where Harukawa shows off some of the character design sketches she's done (different costumes, expressions, etc). Compare this page from volume 1 or this page from volume 2. Momiji and Hatate are just bonuses on Aya's page, like the three fairies are on Reimu's page or Shinmyoumaru's house is on her page.

The bonuses for volumes 3 and 4 have never been scanned (in English), but Kanako and Suwako also appear on Sanae's art page.

I fucking love that Momizi bonus art because it is drawn in such a way that lends itself to wolf-ears or no-wolf-ears depending on the eye of the beholder, thereby continuing that silly argument. I hope it never ends.

Interestingly, the obi calls it "Theme Song of Touhou Suzunaan".

Luno, organizer of Touhou Nico Dousai also said it doesn't sound like a character theme. The book offers no additional commentary on the CD.

A midi version of what I assume would be Kosuzus theme has been put on Youtube.

Does the CD comes with the typical ZUN's comments for each track? If so, any word about "Bibliophile with a Deciphering Eye" being Kosuzu's Theme or Suzunaan's Theme in general?

It doesn't.
