The box set will retail for 54,000 yen (US$495) and includes a 192 page booklet. All the items included in the set are marked with a serial number.


O_O What an expensive book, but I guess this shows just how special it is. I would not be able to pay that much for a book.

Wow, I never knew that Ishinomori created a "shoujo" manga. Too bad no one will ever see this.

Yeah. Especially given the prince point. That is unless someone does buy it but then shares with with the internet, but that is unlikely.

Aw, dangit, only 150 copies?

I guess this ties into that recent Answerman column about these limited edition runs being so small in number. As much as I'm a fan of Shotaro Ishinomori's manga, I don't think I'm going to try my hand at getting one of these, as I don't find it possible to do so. I suppose, in a way, this means I don't want it badly enough, but there aren't really any collectible items I want badly that I would want to fight tooth and nail at launch to get.

(Also, wouldn't his Zelda: A Link to the Past manga be his best-known one in the west?)
