Thank you for posting these translations. I love this series. I can not understand why it is not in comercial distribution in America.

I can hardly wait for the next installment.

Hi! Also adding my thanks and just didn't want to start a new topic to do it.

I managed to find and purchase all 10 volumes at a Manga stall at Tech Mart here in Seoul, S. Korea. I was so excited - until I got home and opened the first one . . . To my shock and horror I realized the rumors were true . . .

These are ALL written in Japanese! Every last word of them! AND there must have been some kind of problem at the printer's because they're all put together backwards! Sheesh. I resealed the pristine copy of the book and went back to my PC to read the scanslations. They now sit proudly on my bookcase and I never let anyone touch them.

Anyway, just wanted to say thank you again and to let you know that I'd never in a million seconds have purchased the actual books if you hadn't had the translations already done. Okay, maybe if I'd learned Japanes I would've, but I may not have discovered them if you hadn't translated them first. Domo arrigato day cozy mustache.

I want to say thanks as well!

I also have the 10 volumes sitting on my bookshelf. And any of you out there who doesn't have the artbook, buy it! It's all pictures anyway, and it's great. I'm really tempted to buy another one so I can cut it up and scan it for my desktop :)

Amazon Japan has it (you might have to cut and paste the whole url):


You can also get it from Acclimate Solutions:


I'm sure there are other vendors if you search.

This series was brought to the attention of manga readers in the US back in 1995 or so by the defunct webzine EX.org < http://www.ex.org/2.4/27-yokohama.html >.
I guess that the interest back then was not sufficient to persuade Western distributors to puck it up. Unfortunately.

Allright. I have to thank translators too. It doesn't help for paying server bills, but it proves that your effort to traslate this manga havent gone for vain. Because I'm selfish, I'm happy that this manga haven't been licensed in the USA. Otherwise I couldn't read it here in Finland.
