Y'know, I'm really torn on whether I should open it or leave it wrapped. The collector in me is telling me to keep it sealed while the critic urges me to read it. I'll probably come to a decision by the end of the week. (that's a long time, I know)

The fan in you should be telling you to buy another copy.

I wish I could, but at almost $16 a book buying another copy is just not a rational decision for me to make at this point. Maybe when I have a reasonably more stable source of income.

Ugh, do forgive the double post.

Well, I've opened the book and flipped through it. As far as I can tell, the art is completely intact. I did a direct, albeit quick, comparison to the Japanese volume and didn't find any edits. The language turned out to be more foul than I had expected. F-bombs are abundant. For once, the explicit content warning is put to appropriate use.

Priced at almost $16, it's more expensive than the average manga volume in North America, but I'd say it's worth the money at this point.

Well, I'm sold. I like to help out the publishers whenever I can, but I just can't justify paying money for butchered material.

:< Only seem up to 56, but wonder if the anime will produce a good fight on the Chang/Balalaika fight? Seemed to be the most epic of all fights so far.

Well here goes. Anyone know if Rei Hiroe did an anniversary edition for Sunday GX's 7th? I saw it on yahoo japan, here are some pics and was wondering if this is legit. It's a rough sketchbook.

I think it would end the day Rock will shoot someone.
After that , nothing would be the same.

Yo, guys, do you know where I can get Black Lagoon translated chapters from 65-70? Do you know where I can find it? Or maybe some of you may have them. If that so, please for your answer here or on priv. It's been long time since chapter 64 was translated and I know that in Japan there is chpater 70 and I still didn't find 65-70 chapters in english. What a shame.......so I beg for your help! :]
