I know some retailers are into gouging, but c'mon....

btw, are the english manga out of print (again)? seems like no one's got them except for the gougers, and I still need to get #'s 17-27 (or beyond).

Any word on a new print run?

TIA

Mmh yup', I never really understood those prices on amazon marketplace, sometimes you get something really cheap (like an music album for 5$ when it's worth 25 in stores), and sometimes that's the opposite, I've often seen FSS books for 40$, just thought it was an error or something, but in this case, wow !

As for reeditino, mmh don't know, but that's one of the reaosn why I wanted to use the mail formular on edit site.

We have some people here who can be very helpful for tracking down FSS stuff.

I bought the manga in English from:
Kinokuniya
http://bookweb.kinokuniya.co.jp/ohb/sho ... A8&AREA=02

Akadot Retail
http://www.akadotretail.com/shop/shop_s ... ?id=fssset

I buy artbooks and manga from Hobbylink Japan
http://www.hlj.com/

i`ve looked around a bit, and to get a single issue on my doorstep means it`ll cost close to 50 euro. transport costs, tax over that, import cost (33% of value + transport costs), tax over that, more transport costs + tax

im not really prepared to pay that much for a manga i might not even like, since i havent read any of it yet.

I just thought I would let everyone know, kinokuniya still has the following for sale:

Volumes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 24, 25, 26.

Not bad if your just starting out like I am. Also if you do contact them, the Los Angeles store/office was the only one that returned my e-mail. So take that as you will. Later.

That's cool, I wonder if I should order second copies of the first several issues because I actually started buying them before they switched to square bound versions.

When they switched to squarebound did they actually put anything different in those first few issues when they redid them?? Anyone know?
