    I'm not really worried that they'll destroy it. I'm hoping Tokyopop gets it right. If it becomes more popular due to it's release in the U.S., then maybe it'll inspire Katsu Aki to do more for the fans of the series. Perhaps another anime.

    Flipping through it at Wondercon, the only problem I saw was the lame title and ad for condoms at the end. I couldn't get any word on if it was multiple volumes, though I'm guessing it was. The size was nice, about the same as old US manga.

    This theming concept bugs me if true. It looked in the right order. The 5 omnibuses sounds way too short for the, what, 24 japanese volumes.

    For those of you complaining about the price, then you don't remember when manga first came to America, do ya?

    Anyway, Amazon has them for $14 so it is just as expensive as most Dark Horse manga. You can also find them cheaper, about $11. It really counts where you shop from, normally I find myself going to Amazon for my comics since Borders/Barnes&Noble have ridiculous tax problems, $4 tax for a $12 comic, f'in shenanigans.

    The Americanized volume follows the same as the Japanese kind. Though, I am guessing that the later volumes will be thicker. All in all, not bad, wouldn't mind reading the later chapters, but I guess I am just going to have to play the waiting game.

    The reason for 5 omnibuses (2 vols. per omnibus) is because tokyopop currently owns the license for the first 10 volumes of FE. So if it sells then we can be sure that more volumes will be released.

    They will release it in themes. Wow! Are they making an educational manga in the US? Hahahaha! Its so funny. So what happens to the story and humor of it all. They are just gonna ruin the it. Educational? Just to market it in the US thats the approach they would take. Plus they are going to censor it. Lame...

    I also hate the fact that they decided to change the name to Mangasutra.

    Since most ignorant Americans will think manga = comic and comic = for kids, they'll definitely get in trouble if they don't censor it.

    Look at how much shit GTA got into and it wasn't even that graphic.
