Well, I might be making it to the S.D. Comicon for one day this year. If its out, it should be there at the Kinokuniya booth. I'll keep an eye open for it (and I'm hoping to get volume 12 there as well)

This guy got his already. In his blog, he mentioned something about Engage SR-4(Last Junchoon). So I was wondering, could there be a drawing of the Last Junchoon in the book?

sorry to disappoint mecha lovers - seems like no new MH art in designs 2.

No new design art for SR4 Final Junchoon too... and seems like there's never gonna be one....


some info about Engage series:

name in KF -> name in Designs 2
SR1 -> SR1
MK2 -> SR2
SR2 Junchoon -> SR3 Junchoon -> rebuilt again to SR4 Final Junchoon
SR3 Sayly -> SR3 replica (Sayly Junchoon or Jade Temple)
Looking for:
- FSS Eng Vol 1(Black cover)

Boo... Yup', afterall there were no new design for FSS Designs 1 neither if I'm not mistaking... (except a few recolor I think)

Anyone knows what will be in this one ?

According to some attempts of translations with babelfish, the siren frame thingy is in the book ?

And some infos about how Nagano draws the manga/artworks ?

(Rubel > You mentioned BK1 in another topic, well it's ok now as HLJ will carry FSSD2, thanks for the suggestion anyway but I always forget to ask, is there an English version of the site ? xD)

There were not any "new" MH's but there were new artwork for the Speed Mirage and one of the cyborg weapons from the alternate universe Lachesis travels to.

Just got my copy yesterday! I just flipped through the pages so far , but man, theres so much to read! I'm really really excited! xD


I also got a copy of "FSS Chronicle 2007". A third of the book is Nagano answering FOQs. It's really awesome!

Falk > nope, no english version, but i thought it is quite straightforward? maybe some online translation might help.


gogolotus > the FAQ sections of Chronicle 2005/2007 are mostly answered by fans themselves (thus not confirmed to be the correct answers). Those are NOT answered by Nagano. Nagano's answers are those that starts with a orange dot (2005) or square bullet (2007) iirc.


actually, i've been wanting to get a collection of ALL cover pages in full size (or somewhere near full size, as long as we can read the tiniest words), i'd definitely buy it! all those cover pages in chronicle are so small =\

can we get a breakdown on whats in the book?

It turns out I'm not going to be attending Comicon this year and with a move coming up, I'm probably not going to have the extra cash to get the book for a month or two.

Sure, I'll talk about what's in it when I get it. My scanner is in a sorry state but I may be able to coax some FSS scans out of it. I ordered an extra copy of the book for... Well, I ordered an extra copy of the book. :twisted:
