Re: Why is BAALO Vol. 15 worth over $200?

I dare say Kodansha USA's behavior does not make sense. The series has always sold well, to start with. Actually, this post has been commenting exactly that: Viz would make different printings, once each number would sell along the time, and LO17 did not have printings enough, and then became rarity...

Re: Why is BAALO Vol. 15 worth over $200?

I've just checked that and, yes! The prices are pornographic!
Worst of all is that Kodansha's omnibus editions are not exactly the ones a collector would require.

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 021 (part 1) Is out!

Thanks for the chapter (or the half chapter, whatever!). This is interesting. In Log 19, we see Muster demanding Kagura to transfer her position of lady of those lands, and Kagura is a monster deformed by the tumor mask. Now in log 21 we see Kagura when she was a beautiful woman. Looking at her face...

Re: mars chonicle not to be released in english?

I kept submitting questions to Kodansha USA's Tumblr for most of 2016 in the nicest way possible. Well, they finally replied near the end of the year or so. I find it odd that fans of Vinland Saga would cuss them out and even call them the worst publishers when that manga's publication was falling ...

Re: Full collection of Battle Angel Alita Last Order

There is something wrong. The omnibus is a collection of 12 volumes. I myself bought the digital version. Besides having Gunnm itself from volume 1 to 15, the omnibus also bring several different works by Kishiro. https://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?__mk_ja_JP=%E3%82%AB%E3%82%BF%E3%82%AB%E3%83...

I agree with the first part: it did end in 1995; but I cannot see Last Order as a what if, but as a reinterpretation.

I just wish that everything could move just a bit faster :?

Also, I thought we would have a volume with Yoko-Erica's childhood and then a...

Indeed! It is writen Chicchi in the translation, but the pronunciation would be the same of Cicci in Italian.

Re: Alita Novel

I honestly do not know what is the utility of his page, as he never replies any question. Also, he has not updated the site since Last Order 17, so…

Anyway, Gunnm Novel was never published in English - neither officially nor by fandoms.

Re: Original Series Republished?

The page you gave refers to the digital version only.
That's a pity, as I would like to have the Japanese edition printed, but the original way, as they did digitally.
