Deathly Hallows goes on sale in Japan

Just a year after Deathly Hallows went on sale in the United States and United Kingdom, the final book in the Potter series went on sale today in Japan.

“I'm so excited I feel like crying. I'm totally enchanted,” said a breathless young Japanese woman who gave her first name as Erina. She said she had waited outside the Tokyo bookstore since Tuesday afternoon.

“I feel sad that this is the end but since I've followed him throughout the years I will be seeing him out, and that comforts me,” she said, wearing a blonde wig as Luna, one of the main characters.
