Fantagraphics is releasing volumes of her Wandering Son manga in North America.

Except they seem to have stopped at volume 8, alas.

Yeah for real, where is the rest? I tweeted them to no avail. Their pace always made me skittish though. Releasing like 2 volumes a year or something.

No. 6 is excellent, but it's also a scifi suspense series. Sports is really not my cup of tea, generally. But it's impressive that the author can write popular fiction in such disparate genres.

Well said. Definitely agree.

I'm a huge fan of No. 6 so I'll be checking this out. Sports series have had an unexpected place in my heart the past few years so fingers crossed for this one!

From what I read, it's about as BL as Ookiku Furikabutte or Kuroko no Basket.
