Reboot One Lachesis is on the desk beside me now. It came in the mail today from Hobby Link Japan. It looks sharp! It is the same height, width and thickness as the original volume one FSS manga. It has the contents of the volume one manga. I haven't checked each page in detail but I've noticed a few things at first glance. There are 3 color page at the start that repeat images we've all seen before. The complete FSS timeline is at the front of the book now. Each chapter has one or two black and white page titled "The Early Design". These special insert pages show rough drafts of characters and machines from FSS as well as finished designs. I haven't noticed any new images but it is nice to see a line art version of the newest Black Knight mortar headd design. The rough draft for the Helmine mortar headd isn't nearly as nice as the finished design but it's fun to see it. My only question is the B Temple design on page 193. Is that from L-Gaim? Or is it a rough draft of the LED Mirage? Any information would be appreciated.
I got an extra copy for scanning but I don't think there are any images in here that would excite you. I'm looking forward to seeing the "extra" pages for future Reboot volumes. I wish you all well in securing your own copies. If there are any questions just let me know.
