YESSSSSS

I love Litchi Hikari Club to PIECES and I am so excited about the chance of more stuff related to it. Prequel manga? Yes please! (I wonder if, supposing it's a webcomic, scanlations would be quite as evil as normal... i mean if it's ALREADY free for anybody to read....)

Anyway, this is nothing but good. I've been hoping Furuya's manga would make it to the English-language market legitimately for quite some time.

This is great! I really hope someone records the new version of the play, since most of the Japanese Grand Guignol theatrical performances (including the original LHC) were only around in the eighties.

It's nice that the prequel will also include more information about the characters themselves, since the manga didn't go too far into them aside the protagonist. I remember that was the main negative comment I had about the series in a review I wrote for it on MAL, since they all seemed so interesting but there wasn't anything about them!

I just picked up Usamaru Furuya's Genkaku Picasso having loved his crazy Short Cuts. This manga is coming out in the US in April and I've had it on my radar.

Huh. And only now I notice he did Tokyo Magnitude 8 which never saw the light of day in English since CMX shut down before they published it. Damn. I didn't even notice his name on that one and it was one of the few CMX titles to catch my eye in some time.
