Oh yeah, I did finally get around to finishing 20th Century Boys (and 21st).

I watched the second live-action adaptation for 20th Century Boys; it starts from teenage Kanna's story and goes through to the start of 3 FE. They got a lot of the character looks and scenes spot on, especially with the lead girls Kanna and Kyoko and their expressions. Slight tweaks in the storyline (Kanna and Kyoko go to Friend Land together, and a tweaking of fate of Yamane and Friend).

Viz plans to release the Master Keaton manga under the Viz Signature label this december.

Interesting. I wonder if they'll put out Master Keaton Remaster when they are done? Though, I wonder why Billy Bat hasn't been licensed already? They must be waiting for it to end first.

I know someone who's in Japan now and found the complete Monster manga in a set, translated to English, for dirt cheap.

Sadly I couldn't convince her to pick up a copy for me, since I don't know her in person and she has so much stuff she's taking home with her, but damn.

Sir, do you have any Warrants?
I got their first CD, but you can't have it, motherfucker!

Are you sure it was official? I wouldn't be surprised if it was, but even so I wouldn't expect it to be "dirt cheap." Cool if it's the real deal though.

I'm satisfied we're getting omnibus re-releases anyway. They'll be affordable enough, especially over the two or so years it'll take all of 'em to get out. I hope Viz'll do the same with 20th Century Boys sometime as well.

I dunno.

When do the omnibuses come out, anyway?

The first volume of Master Keaton is now available to pre-order on Rightstuf.

Judging from the page count, it seems like they'll be combining two volumes into one a la what Kodansha is doing with Vinland Saga, which works for me just fine since the release of the series will be completed faster.

As part of their weekly Manga Mondays, today you can pre-order the first Monster omnibus from Barnes and Noble for only $9.99. This is $5 cheaper than Rightstuf's price, so if you're planning on buying the Monster omnibi, it'd be good to hit up this offer before the end of the day.

I actually just used that!

I was going to buy it at my local B&N anyway, so why not take up the chance to get it half-priced?

I was going to use it, but for some reason I can't complete the order and no reason is given.

Oh well, typical.

Okay, amazon.ca has all three first volumes for preorder. I'll go for them and get free shipping.
