So does this mean that it will only be a one-shot deal and not a new magazine serializing manga? Huhn. I really like the manga magazine concept and wish we had it more in America. Sure, now there's Yen Plus (which is good), but I'd like to see several magazines going. That'd be cool.

Considering Top Shelf lists it as volume one on their website, I am assuming that this is a new anthology. I hope.

My understanding is that more volumes are planned (though I have no idea what the timescale for future releases is) but it will definitely be a book rather than a magazine. It's essentially a "best of AX" kind of a thing.

I wasn't thinking of it as an anthology like Shonen Jump, though, where on-going series are serialized. More like "The Best Of..." like you suggested.

We should hopefully see an annual release for this -- given the current climate, I couldn't expect anything else.
