Here’s a little translation of the Book 4 announcement:

Sakae is appointed to The News due to Shitara’s support. Sakae takes a new step forward, working for the man who is the kindest to him and also the harshest to him

Ichiho-sensei says that it’s a story about the GP (Gleefully loves scraping by Producer) and the CP (Can’t be trusted to eat properly Producer) acting a little immature at work. 😂😂😂

GP = General Producer AKA the showrunner
CP = Chief Producer AKA the adjunct showrunner

I am so excited about the release date announced for the next book of the spinoff! I’m surprised that the book is named Tsunaide instead of Hiraite, which has already been published. I wonder if the over-arching theme is more important in Tsunaide. Some thoughts on the name Tsunaide: it can mean connecting things or people together (physically, emotionally, or sexually) and also connecting footage together for a rough cut in editing.

There are new Yes ka No ka announcements! There will be an official guidebook for Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka that will be released with the anime when it comes out in the winter! It will include information about the anime, an introduction to all the books, character relationship diagrams, glossary of terms, parody manga from guest artists, a new story, and lots of other special extras! I can’t wait for the release! The editors are taking requests and ideas for the guidebook at the hashtag until July 31st. I saw people submit requests for the characters’ Wiki pages! 😘 And a collection of Kei’s recipes, lol.

There will also be a new book of the spinoff! It’s tentatively slated for sale on August 10th! It’s called Tsunaide, and it will have the new story Tsunaide and the previous story Hiraite about Sakae and Shitara. So many happy announcements!! I’ll reveal a bit more after I finish translating Fusaide! There’s just two more chapters to go for the story.
