Oh the joys of just-in-time manufacturing. I can just see a Kodansha USA rep. saying ; " You ran out of what? " Embarassed

Lucky! I'm glad that it will (hopefully) be out soon. I was concerned when amazon sent me an email stating that they didn't know when the release date would be. I've had that happen in the past and the books ended up never being published.

It is definitely still coming out! Anime smallmouth Hopefully in the next week or two, but definitely before the end of the month.

Should they be saying it was delayed, when the product has been shipped out already to some customers. Sounds more like they ran out of stock, or only received a partial shipment.

Same here, it was a great read. Wish the second volume was coming faster.

I guess I'm glad it exists at least (AND I have it) and to hear from someone from Kodansha that the rest are coming, rather than them disappearing into the abyss like Volume 2 of 1520.

So no explanation of WHY it was delayed?

They had copies at their booth at NYCC. Though when I was at vertical's booth one of the manga reviewers talking to Ed said that whatever publisher they use has been sending out manga orders late.
