I paid 11665 Yen at Amazon.co.jp which includes shipping. Which is like $110USD for 13 volumes. It works out to like $8.5 per volume. Not too bad, considering the CMX version is like selling for over 9 bucks at Amazon.com. I asked for cheap shipping and they actually shipped it express to me. So I g...

Yes! Finally got my TT

All 13 volumes arrived today. Man, they're beautiful. Love the sexy matte paper dust jacket and the glossy pin ups. Even if CMX uncensors TT in the future I think I'll stick with the import.

You know what? (&#! writing letters of complaint/suggestions or what not. Those jabronies are not worth my time nor yours. They damn well know what should've been done in the first place. I'm ordering all the originals from Amazon.co.jp once the new Metal Gear art book comes out and I'll email them ...

I was going to import before I found out about DC's plan. No sense in importing now that I know an English version is coming...well, unless they butcher it. I just can't afford to get two sets. And I don't want to ruin the experience by reading scans....damn this is going to be a long wait.

Any news from DC?

Doesn't seem they've mentioned anything since they announced that it was licsensed. There's a total of 8 titles mentioned but non of them are TT...I have a feeling we'll be long done with the anime series before we see vol 1. :(

If people are concerned about DC's ability to keep the manga's content intact, be proactive and write to them NOW. Wait and see is not a good idea. I sure as hell don't want to see a butchered version come Christmas.

Fugu-sama, when you remove the downloads, please don't take the script down. Some people, might not want to wait that long for DC's release and import the books.

Hm, is that with a credit card ? And when I click 'display in english' it just stays in Japanese :? Yeah, you need a credit card for Amazon. And when you click it, only parts of it turn into English , like the payment side etc. It's basically laid out indentically to amazon.com, so keep a window of...

Yeah, too bad I missed the pre-order at HLJ for the Aya figure. I went to bed at 5:30 am, and they still weren't accepting orders. Then 7 hours later when I woke up, they had stopped accepting while I was slumbering :( They are taking preorders at amazon.co.jp. No need to stay up and wait. I'm thin...

:shock: Oh dear god. I sure hope you have your Aya figure reserved so you don't have to do this again 6 months down the road. That's an obscene amount of money to spend on a figure that doesn't even have articulation.

Maya's figure O_o

No, not her body, but the statue of her that came with issue 9. I see it being auctioned for 19000 Yen. That's like 171 USD! Sometimes even more. What does it do? Is it suppose to come to life in the middle of the night, cook for you, fix your chi imbalance, and then make sweet sweet love to you? Th...

From the picture, that looks like the ComicsWorld Hong Kong edition, which has pretty good printing quality and decent paper. They're licensed copies, so they're legit. Doesn't really sound cheap, considering that it may be 2nd hand. Not too expensive, either, but you might want more proof of authe...

thats actually quite expensive. I had ordered all 28 volumes of Kenshin from overseas, and that only cost me 68 dollars US including shipping. Its sad... and I even consider that quite expensive. Back in the day, all I had to do is head to my local bookstand and buy manga for 2 bucks a piece... *Sa...

http://tinyurl.com/2ntgd Is this legit? This is dirt cheap; the price actually includes shipping! Is the quality of the paper or printing really subpar? Anyone out there have the Chinese version? I figure since I don't know enough Japanese to read it might as well just buy the cheapest version. What...
