You can sell anything for any cost you want to on Ebay. It's not that hard to believe.

Someone bought that at $55, now w/ vol. 4 - 12 is only $37.5. I can't believe this.

Canadian FSS Fan: Since he is shipping via US postal service, see if he is willing to ship to your place if you pay him via paypal. Or else, find a friend w/ a US address, and ship it from there to you. You still save a lot of money.

The last English volume to come out recently was Volume 26, which finished off Japanese book 10.

4Wheel, if you can't read Japanese, why not just buy the CHinese Ver. for a much cheaper price? It's translated in Chinese, but you can't read neither language anyway, so whether Knight Flag is in Japanese or chinese, it doesn't matter to you. Thus, buy the cheaper one.

Go to sharp point punishing at spp.com.tw

Taiwan dollar is so low, if you do the conversion, you are laughing. And their shipping is too cheap to mention.

unfortunately the chinese version have sucky print quality. the earlier HK version did better, but since the HK version has now been transferred fully to Taiwan's Sharp Point, you don't find them anymore. HK version is the same size as the Jap version, whereas TW is the almost the same size as the US releases.

peng soon are u talking about the manga itself or the KF? i get the feeling that happy was talking about KF. Did HK print the CH version of KF? Bootleg huh?

I have both the JP and CH KF, and although the latter is a limited print from Taiwan (claimed limited to 2000 copies worldwide), the quality is far from the JP version.

If u're talking about the HK manga, i have books 1-3 (end of Colus war). They are smaller sized, paper and printing quality are much better than TW version. However, there are no color character introduction pages, and sleeve notes are very limited (iirc, only Power Balance Chart).

oops, yeah, u r rite... i am referring to the Chinese Manga. and no, HK did not print the KF afaik. Kino in KL has several copies of the TW KF, selling for about RM260. i have the Jap KF already, will snag the TW KF when i have extra cash, as i can't read Jap. :)

but there are several prints of the HK manga, as I saw the later print of them have color introduction. i saw them in a comic-rental shop (which i think will be alien concept to most Westerners here :) ). try as i may, i couldn't find them for sale anywhere though.

wow RM260 so expensive?! I remember that i pre-ordered from the TW publisher directly and the total costs including shipping is much lower than that! (iirc much less than SGD100, book itself is only 1500TWD anyway!).

Maybe u can get it cheaper from TW or HK auctions. I see the item from time to time. shipping can be a killer, have to do some calc :?

awww... my HK FSS manga didn't have the color intro! :x they're available in HK auctions - quite cheap. of coz they're used books, cant expect brand new since they're printed in 1990!
