When's it coming out?
If it's really 100 extra pages of new stuff, I'll def order it.
I really really hope it's not one of those "missing from the tankoubons" or "sleeve notes collection" crap, because I have most of those things anyways.

It's not going to be a limited edition release or anything.
I'm going to wait a bit more... :)
Thanks for the news!

The addition of 80 pages to the sleeve notes???

Thats a lot. Its only going to be fatima info? Detailed breakdowns on all the fatima in the tale is great, but I'd also like to see detailed info on all the MH's as well.

Hmm..perhaps thats coming in the next update...

The new edition of vol 2 reveals some new information and characters. These are the new info I gathered from some JP websites (my vol 2 is 'shipping', i hope...)

*** Spoilers ***



Sad to say, very high chance that Nu Soard is dead, his fatima has now acknowledged her new master named Burner Daud (sp?), unknown number Mirage Knight, close assistant of Sarion (possibly a leftie?).

The fatima who appeared in the Calendar 2005 is indeed Spaluta, her previous master is the late MK#15 Corlala. New master is the weird looking guy who appeared at the fake Kaien scene. His name is Baizbiz, which is somewhat similar to Vinz Vinz Leftie #12?

NT 2003-08 - The real identity of "Atlas", as reported by Ms AKD to have just started to wake up, is in fact SSL.

checking to see if there're more...

I read that the latest NT issue (Apr 2005) has a 4 page FSS special. includes desciption of 6 characters (in English?!!) -

Amaterasu

ヴィッタシャッセ Vitterschasse - Ballanche fatima #13, one of Amat's fatimas for MH development

シシステルケスレム Sisisrelchesrem (sp?) - one of Amat's fatimas for MH development

ベルベット Velvet Weissmel - Decor's son (LMAO poor Decors :roll:)

バイズビズ Weiswis (sp? weird spelling...) - Mirage Left Wing #12, master of Spaluta, "drives & controls Type G". :shock: Type G should be Terror Mirage?

Eldei 20(Zwanzig) - unknown...

old pic of the 3 MH development fatimas:

Hmmm, I dunno if they realise the mistake for the JP Vol 2 (2005 Ed).

The character introduction pages show Colus19 and SR-3 pics, but descriptions are for Colus23 and Junchoon Early Type. :?


duh... wats going on? Nagano too busy with other works? he was well-known for picking on details... unless this time its approved by the man himself... :|

I've heard about that as well from people who bought the 2005 edition.
Would that be like what happened with Lie Ex, Panar Ex, and Arart Ex?
All three had the exact same character pics.
Just because they are supposed to look the same, Nagano didn't bother drawing new ones.
Laziness supreme.

Or it could be just a big mistake.
Maybe they'll release the "2005 edition 2nd revision" or something.
And to make us spend more money...with 5 more pages of 'brand new' material! bleh

You're rite about the 3 EX using the same pic. Although i dont really feel too happy about that, but it is indeed true that all three look alike.

All Colus should look alike too, but their clothes design are very different. For Colus 19, its even more obvious, because u can see the roman numerals for 19 (ok the actual pic we can only see XVII.. coz of the angle, the last 2 strokes are hidden), so there is no way that number can be mistaken for 23.

As for SR3, there are alot of differences from Junchoon Early Type. Nagano never did draw any colored pics for the Early Type anyway.

short-changed? :?

Picked it up today during lunch hour (Ar! US$19). Have not have a chance to go through yet. After reading this post, I'll probably check it out even more carefully.
The extra pages were character illustrations when I toke a quick peek.
