Itazura na Kiss not actually canceled. Limited availability, though.

If you want vol. 11, it's now available through Akadot retail. And I just threw out my effing books, because I'd given up on ever finishing it, too. Mad Still, who knows if and when they'll ever get to volume 12?

Ok. As I noted in a different thread, I talked to DMP, and they have confirmed that volume 12 is still happening.

I'm glad you made this thread (even though I didn't see it until a few weeks ago). I'm not thrilled with DMP these days and I had a really frustrating experience ordering from Akadot a couple years ago that set me against the site, but since that appears to be the only way to get the end of this series...

Anyway, I ordered (and received) volume 11, so I can confirm that it does indeed exist in this world! Hurrah!

I hate Akadot with a passion mostly because their international shipping charges are absolutely extortionate.

st_owly: Yeah, I've tried to ask Right Stuf if they can carry the new volumes, but no dice so far.

For now, if any of you foreigners want Itakiss 11 and 12, pm me. When 12 is available, I'll order multiple copies of 11 and 12 as needed (it will help me get to free shipping). So long as you'll pay for the books and the shipping (which is still international, but will likely be far more affordable than akadot's shipping), I'm game.

I'm just curious though, how bad are their international rates?

I've not looked in a while but last time I checked it was several times the cost of a single volume to ship 1 book over here. They posted something on FB about their new rates and I think it's still a minimum shipping charge of $20 for an international order.

Well, I just PM'ed 'em with a request to make the last two books available on Right Stuf. And they said they'd let their distribution team know.

I'll be doing this in retail, so that people who miss this thread will notice, but it looks like volume 12 [i.e. the 'last one'] is finally in stock. But it's still an Akadot exclusive, so you gotta pay $60 to get free shipping. Mad

I'm waiting for them to get in Kimagure Orange Road so I can get a bit of that towards free shipping before I just order Itazura 12. When I ordered 11, they were having a sale that was free shipping at $30 but now that it's back up to $60 and I own all the Tezuka, I'm just going "ugh...."
