Dam man, just do one God dam series. He has Dance, Dive, now Sledge Hammer, then part 2. I like the series, but stop going schizophrenic all over the place.

Words can't describe how excited I am for this. DITVB is one of my all-time, be-all end-all favorite manga series, and I'll be sitting on the edge of my seat each day until it comes back!

Wow, the mangaka is brilliant. You get licensing fees for each title. All those 20+ volume manga series? Fools!

Agreed, though Nayu raises a good reason, it sure seems odd to have so much compartmentalization when sticking to the same magazine.

Anybody read through what we already have out so-far to confirm if the page in the back of the Dive books is right, and that part should really be listed as a side-story (betwen chapters 33 & 34 of volume 6) rather than spin-off?

Dive in the Vampire Bund is a side-story that sets in motion several major events that happen in the main Dance in the Vampire Bund series (i.e. the Pied Piper, the lack of vaccine, etc). It also has the chronological first appearances of several characters, including spoiler[Fake Mina].

I came up with the reading order with the help of Adrienne (Bund's translator) and Janet (Bund's rewriter), and we put Dive between those particular chapters due to it being the only place with a gap in the narrative to allow for it... i.e. Hama is no longer a bad guy, but it's before Angie shows up (an event which kickstarts the arcs that runs through the rest of the Part I of Dance).
