Wow.

That's really all I can say. That one preview alone has already exceeded my expectations for this release. The writing style is so easy to get into and the translation—placed against numerous fan-made attempts I've encountered in the past—is simply top-notch.

You've already got my money. For this and the entire series (and oh please, oh please do bring the whole thing over!).

Thank you so much for the praise! Glad you like what you see. That reeeally helps to put our minds at ease. Anime smile

You might've also noticed, but we kept the names of the character's names in Japanese name order. It's something that I've been wanting from manga for a very long time now and am just glad I'm finally in a position where I can make that call. It really does add a whole new level of authenticity.

We'll see what happens once we start seeing the numbers for the books. But trust me, I really want them. So, all you gotta do to show your support for Boogiepop is buy 'em and give us feedback! Anime smile

I second that thanks. I'm a huge fan of the books as well, and man, the later books are so good it hurts. I hope like hell we get to do the whole thing, and Beat's Discipline!
