Mefites have read everything, right? Has anyone here read the light novel sequel to the manga Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō (Yokohama Shopping Log)? It's mentioned on the YKK Wikipedia page
. If you have, could you tell me what happens in it, and if it is illustrated? Spoilers, hopefully, within.

Here's what Wikipedia says about it:
A novel based on Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō called Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō Novel: Seeing, Walking, Being Glad (小説 ヨコハマ買い出し紀行―見て、歩き、よろこぶ者?), written by Akira Katsuki (香月照葉, Katsuki Akira?) and illustrated by Hitoshi Ashinano, was published by Kodansha on 23 October 2008 (ISBN 978-4-06-373326-6). Set long after the conclusion of the manga series, it tells the story of a boy robot named Omega and his search for the legendary Cafe Alpha.
Can you fill in the details for me? I'd like to know how the story continues. I doubt there'll ever be a translation to English. I may want to buy the Japanese version, if it's well illustrated. Thanks!
