    I had trouble finding it in stores, but I ended up just ordering it off of Amazon.com. Sooooo if any of you are having trouble finding it, it'll cost like $4 extra for shipping, but it isn't too bad, plus mine came two days later (no they're not paying me to say this either).

    I finally got it at a comic store on Universal citywalk.

    Overall, I'm not completely impressed. They changed the onion aliens catchphrase and they mistranslated the "another part of my body gave an enthusiastic thumbs up" which was one of the best lines. Plus they mispelled Katou. And they had one page which didn't actually fit on the whole page and that pissed me off as well. But besides that, the translation was very good for any manga and everything else was flawless.

    ^ So, aside from the flawed parts, it was flawless (=

    Personally, I'll be buying to help Oku. And well, even if the translation sucks, If you have bought the book, then you can "legally" keep a good scanlation around

    I will grant you the 'Kato' misspelling. Acceptable spellings would be 'Katou' or 'Katō' and they used neither of these. However, for general translation you couldn't expect it to be the same as what you've read unless it was translated by the same person. You might never have thought that line was so great if you had read a different scanlation. They typically have to make a decision between either more literal accuracy or what sounds cooler and funnier.

    And they had one page which didn't actually fit on the whole page and that pissed me off as well.
    Which page was this...?

    I finally got mine today at my local books-a-million. I called around noon when I woke up and they couldn't find it, so I went there, hoping that the lady just hadn't looked hard enough, and couldn't find it, so I asked at the front and to my surprise, the woman I asked (Who turned out to be quite cute ) was the same one I talked to earlier. So, she went and looked again and after waiting a few minutes, she came back and she was holding that holy, holy book in her hands. I must have thanked her ten times before I walked out the door.

    I found an error (Or at least an americanization) When Kishimoto asks for Katou and Kuruono's names, Katou says "Kato. Masaru." nothin' wrong there, right? Correct Japanese naming order last name, first name. But then Kurono says "Kei Kurono."
    FUCK! I was hopin' maybe they just screwed up, but nope, Kishimoto then starts called Katou, "Kato" as if that's his first name! NoooooO!!!!! Why have you forsaken me Dark Horse!? I'm guessin' they're trying to translate with the English anime as a guide. God...dammit...

    EDIT: Also, in the beginning, when Kurono introduces himself to the reader, he says his name is Kurono Kei, but introduces himself to Kishimoto as Kei Kurono. What up with that?
