(according to Amazon Japan)

BIGGER VERSION:
Spoiler:
 

And DRAMA CD COVER:
Spoiler:
 

Is this the actual volume 16 cover?(?!?) If so, OMG... No chains? Flower confetti? RAINBOW title?? Such a huge emphasis on how different Leo is from the other characters!

It might just be an early prototype, but it sure looks like the official format.

Wow, was not really expecting a colourful cover for Leo (if it is the official cover for volume 16). I guess it's pretty cute and pretty in a way, but I was hoping for a more "dark" cover for Leo.

I think everybody expected a dark cover for Leo, so I think this opposite cover is great because it's so blatantly ironic. Like an inside joke for those who read the series.

Or maybe it's a play on Leo's borderline insanity and/or how dramatically different his view of the world is. After all, he's a fundamentally kind, gentle person, imo, and that's why all the things wrong with the world weigh down on him so much. So, while he's willing to use violence to accomplish it, he's ultimately an idealist and wants what he thinks will fix what's he thinks is broken with the world. I think the cover gets that across in an odd way.

I giggled when I first saw this. Especially the rainbow glow around 'Pandora Hearts' and the all the flowers. xDDDD It's...too cute... Most of the covers are dark. I wonder if this means anything.

OMG!!!!!!!!!1 qUJQFSBCLKSDAVGC;IAUEGF; I LOVE THIS COVER!!! SO MUCH!!!! ;w; L-leo is so cute....;w; *saves picture!!!* And he has no chains either....Perhaps that also means something in conjunction with the bright and flowery cover^^'' Oh, and plus, i think its gold and bright because Leo can see gold bits flying around^^''' i-its just a guess!

WOW... that is so different from what I expected .. I was hoping it would be Leo, but I guessed that it would be a more..dramatic/dark version. But it is an interesting contrast to the other covers, if this is indeed the actual cover.

Yeah, now that I think about it, it does make sense in a way; with the colourful cover and such.

Oh, as for the drama CD cover I really like it. <3 I'll be looking forward to the side episode of "Unbirthday". :>

Plus he's reading a book there, and to him books are warm fuzzy escapism from the nastiness of the world, so the rainbow flowers could be representing that. Or the flowers could also be representing the golden Abyss lights he sees.

Some more clarification:

Quote :
To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Pandora Hearts, there will be a limited edition each of Vol. 16 (on sale Nov. 26) and Vol. 17 (on sale March 27, 2012).

Vol. 16 will come with a drama CD, with the script written by Mochizuki-sensei. Vol. 17 will come with a Oz-Gil-Alice keitai strap designed by Mochizuki-sensei.

The reservation deadline is Oct. 10 for both volumes.

I love this picture but It's odd that it's colorful and there's no chains, but perharps this is because of the 5th aniversary thing (Has PH been being puplished for that long? that's sapriceing)

Those limited edition volumes sound awesome, I wish I could buy them!

ohmygawsh.
Geeez, I leave some sites behind for a couple weeks and I miss THIS?
I think I might cry, TT_TT

I was kinda shocked [like everyone else] to see this kind of cover for Leo.
I really like it. as RedEyedGhost said... It's kind of ironic, ^^
I'm a big fan of irony. Wink

I was also wondering if she would show him on the cover with or without his glasses.
We get BOTH.
Perfect combination, and presented so nicely too.
Rainbows and flowers. I want to dance! <3

Consider me... surprised :O does anyone know what colour eyes Leo actually has, because here it looks kind of golden but in the artwork for the latest chapter they looked dark blue/purple...

I think they're brown or black, and the golden stuff is the reflection of the Abyss lights he sees.

My jaw dropped at the instant I saw this XD Why so bright and colourful, Leo? I guess it really is ironic. I'm glad to see a pic of him when he was still in Lutwidge Academy (those "good" old times...... GDI ELLIOT WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO??? oni032 oni032 oni032 ") The rainbow font really got me laughing till my stomach hurt. Maybe the Abyss is supposed to be such a colourful and cheerful place. (I'm kinda worried about Leo's sanity though.)

And I think Leo's eyes are black with golden lights floating in them.

KYA!!! Its so pretty!!! I like it!! Considering how the covers are usually really dark and kinda sinister i think this one is a good break from that!
Although in some ways this is scarier lol
I suppose it's like what everyone's already said, it's representing Leo's mind in some way, well, I can't wait to find out if this IS the official one!

I am also buying this!!

Not only is Leo unbelievably HOTTT, but it's such a wonderful complement to the Elliot cover! Elliot also has 6 chains on his, but his chains are binding him, whereas Leo has no chains binding him - he's dominating the chains! <3<3<3

This is a great cover~ Though I wonder what the other one with the rainbow text and such is going to be used for now that there's a new cover?

What color are Leo's eyes? It looks like there gold in the first picture but now there purple in this one.

I think there's a possibility that the rainbow flower one could be the color insert in this volume. Normally people in the color insert have chairs, but Leo is sitting down, so maybe that counts. Or maybe it is the special edition cover after all.

That would be awesome if it was the colour insert. Just imagine having both of those entirely different pictures in one volume...O_O
