12 years and it's only act 1 that's ending? How long does he intend it to go?

It's been running since Oct. '02 and only has just over 200 chapters by now. I don't think it's been running in every Young Jump issue since it's debut because if it was, I think t would be on 500-something range by now.

Oh wow, just 'Act 1' huh? This is already his longest series, outrunning I"s and Video Girl Ai/Len both, so I wonder just how much longer it'll go on. A small part of me wishes it would end-end though, so he could maybe do another romantic-comedy series...but I dunno if he could do one the way he wants nowadays.

Really, REALLY wish the manga would come out over here already too.

Technically, it has been via scanlations.

!!!!

The closest, I think, we've been to this is Viz acknowledging the manga series exists via that old Katsura interview with them some time back + the anime. Sad

Yea, this is one title that we're missing out on over here without an official NA release. It would be great to have this released in english as I enjoyed the TV series and have read a few volumes via scans and would love to see this get a print release. Maybe one day.

Seconding the whole "Zetman does not run in every Young Jump" comment. I guess Katsura just puts a chapter out whenever he wants.

Beautiful series, nonetheless.
