I really hope that one day we will see Saint Young Men here in the states. I can understand the author's worry but it's a shame that this funny manga won't be seen outside of Japan.

I'm also really digging the trend of making glasses based on various properties! The Persona 4 ones were really really cool!

Actually, I have a French copy of the manga sitting on my coffee table right now. Just an American thing I guess. Sad

Those glasses are sort of cool.

I doubt Jesus would need to wear glasses. I believe he would have corrected any eye abnormality himself. Wink

I've seen frames like these in my local optometrist shops for about the same price.

From what I have gathered the author has asked that it not be published in the US. I didn't see a direct quote or anything so I'll happily stand corrected if I am wrong.

The French get so much more manga than the US does. Very Happy I'm really jealous at the amount of awesome shojo titles that they have. Plus they always have really pretty covers. At least the few that I have seen are really nice.
