On the very first JPG from the left, there are two set of sticker, the one on the left (i.e., the one sitting on top of the other), isn't the color of black?

So why do you say it only c/w Silver and Gold?
If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

Um..... silver stuff looks different, depending on how the light hits it.

It only looks black because part of the sheet is reflecting less light towards the viewer.

Oh...so that's what it is--the camera playing trick on me. Okay.

And now that I take a closer look at the sticker, it seems that the silver and the gold, each one has its own design.

In other words, if you like one of those certain pattern, it only comes in silver, likewise, some of those certain pattern, only comes in gold.

And that's what we grown ups call "marketing".

It's an one man co. who makes those on his own. He doesn't have a marketing dept. :D

But FSS began to be published in English starting in 1999.
How can you say you've been following the manga if you weren't able to read it? ^_^
Because I was getting Newtype and the Japanese version and following along using the old Wax Trax site!!!

I had collected several volumes of FSS before I even found that old site. When I found it I was so happy, and when I could understand what was going on my love for FSS increased one hundred-fold.
Since 1999 Nagano has taken only maybe 3 breaks tops.
You haven't wasted your time enough on this manga yet wahahahaha
True. By the time I got all caught up, it was around 1999 (right before the release of volume 10) so I've only "experienced" the breaks since then....but its still maddening nevertheless.
Shinei!

Hi,

I assume GOTHICMADE is just another artistic experiment for Mamoru Nagano. I applaud him for trying different mediums.
I'm glad to hear it's just an OVA, not a TV series. The sooner it ends, the sooner it will get a North American release
Hopefully, Mr. Nagano will continue the English translations of the Five Star Stories. Maybe, I'm asking for too much...

Am I the only one here that doesn't like the mecha designs?

I'd like to get a better look at them (and know that I'm seeing them all) before I pass judgement.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

I've only seen two full body shots of GTM mechas.
But I hate them.
Ugliness. :|

This is not a MH. It is from Nagano's new animation, mechas in this animation are called GTM, this while silverish (and translucent armor of coz :D ) GTM's name is Kaiserin. It is piloted by the main male character named Torihalon. Power output of Kaiserin is 85 trillion kilowatts which is higher than the average 75 trillion kW GTM.
