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.
The Los Angeles store was where I always bought mine from. In fact, the guy that brokered the deal between Kinokuniya and Toyspress for the English version of FSS works at the L.A. store. When I lived in L.A. I would go directly to him to find out when the next batch was coming in.
Shinei!

I dealt with a guy named Akira the whole time and he was really helpful, even called my house just to make sure the total and everything was ok before charging my card. Great service.

Hey y'all,

I was just in Seattle last week and when I visited the Kinokuniya store there I saw that they had about 15-20 issues of the English Translated FSS. Some square bound, some stapled. I didn't note all the issue numbers, but if anyone is searching for these here's the shop info:

525 S Weller St
Seattle, WA 98104
(206) 587-2477

The FSS stuff is not shelved with the manga, but rather with their anime art books (the "oversized" thing I guess).

If you call and ask I'm sure they'd be happy to help you find what you need, and ship them to you.

It's nice to be loved.

I hope the Seattle store can hook you up.

If I didn't already have a hefty FSS collection, I would have wet myself in that store.

As it was I got myself a lovely Eureka Seven model and character design sketch book.

I tried emailing them, and it turns out they don't have the two I'm looking for. I'm gonna email all the others in the US though, 'cause I'm getting pretty desprate. For some reason, #16 and #17 are a complete bitch to find.

Dang.

Sorry to hear that. I hope they'll turn up at one of the other stores.

I feel your pain, 16 is the only one I need to complete my English set, and either it's unavailable everywhere, or people try and charge insane prices.

The bottom of the page has a list of all (I think) the American Kinokuniya stores.
