I have a few versions of the UMN logo from the textures in XSII:
The U.M.N. logo from Xenosaga, consisting of a simplified depiction of a snake biting its own tail, with the initials U.M.N. and Unus Mundus Network printed below; on a light grey/green background.The same logo on a light blue background.The U.M.N. logo with yellow text and the ouroboros symbol to the right of the text, on a dark blue/violet background.

Here's a transparent version I was using for a different project:
A transparent version of the U.M.N. logo above, with the colored background removed.

There's also a slightly different version that Jessi uploaded from XSIII:
The U.M.N. logo in silver against a background resembling a dark blue screen.

I hope these are the right ones and that you can use them!
Yeah! They're finally here, and yes ODM is a bookmark thing.

I don't know why but it seems that the manga is read from left to right, which seems different from regular books.
postcard book looks great! I didn't expect so many, I thought it was separate from my XGpostcard book, but now it seems that the XS is a separate book
I think the manga is pretty good, I spent an hour flipping through it (actually, I read the electronic version several times XD) Basically, I can think of which frame (in the game CG) when I see that part, at least I can understand it
Well, the drawing is much better than in the animation, it's true!
I'm so happy you're enjoying them! I still need to buy a copy of the ODM and the manga, but the postcard book is gorgeous. I really love the artwork in the manga, too; everyone's faces and body language are so expressive. It's cool to see the story told in a variety of ways, and each medium has its own vision it brings to the setting.

I'm closer to Shion's height, myself!

I'm so glad you were able to get those books! I love the ODM and often use it as a reference. (As for me, I'm about 6 cm taller than MOMO. 😅)
Thank you! Yes, I'm reading the ODM in conjunction with the English translation, and a lot of the manuscript/setting explanations are still very appealing to me!
Your height will make you look lovely :D
Well, I'm close to twice the weight of MOMO (70kg)

Does anyone know where I can buy the XS emission preview? I had seen it on ebay, but when I was ready to buy, there was only E1/2/3 set left. . .

Seems like it's out of stock but some third party/secondhand sellers might have it?

Thanks for sharing this, I see it seems to have 1 more in stock? I'm not very familiar with Japanese, so I'm just guessing. But I can ask my friend in the morning to see if he can buy it for me when I go back to Japan.
Thanks again for sharing this!

You're welcome! Sometimes it seems like there are more listings on the Japanese version of the site compared to the English version. I've noticed most eBay sellers are likely buying from suruga-ya and marking up the price significantly (which makes sense, to cover their labor of ordering it domestically and shipping internationally etc).
I also hope there is, I recently installed an nds emulator on the switch, but I can't understand Japanese, I just want to play XS1&2 more conveniently

That's the dream :( There were several translation efforts over the years but they've all stopped

ETA: there might be a patch that just translates the menus? but it's not something I've used and I don't remember where. If anyone has more info I'm interested too and would be very grateful
