Wow! I bet nobody expected this to be licensed at all! I'm kinda sad there won't be any printed editions, but hey, digital is better than nothing!

Wasn't Nakamura worried about people finding this offensive and therefore reluctant to let other countries license it? Well, then again, Spain licensed it (I collected volumes 1-4)

This is unexpected for sure! I wonder if there's any chance of it getting a physical release later? I'll be buying in hopes of that.

She was afraid violent religious nuts with guns in the U.S. would shoot someone over it.

I am so pleased to be able to finally get this.I have a flier detailing the locations in their neighborhood that I picked up at a tourism office in Tokyo many years ago.

I suppose I'm odd in having a preference for digital manga. I suppose it comes from years of collecting physical copies and the conviction that I'm only going to read 95% of it once anyway.

I'm glad to be able to read this series, finally. I wasn't interested enough in it to import it from Japan and struggle through the kanji.

Oooh! I hope this does well enough that a print release follows Very Happy

Wow, I never thought we'd see this over here! Digital is starting to grow on me so I'll be getting these at some point.

Kudos to Kodansha for taking a risk! The risk of which is religious nutcases drawing attention to the work which then only fuels more interest and drives more sales. At least that’s what my Magic 8-Ball says. Lol

I'm a fan of Arakawa and I've always been interested in this, and I'd pick it up immediately if it were physical.

I'm not a digital buyer, however, so sucks for me, but good for those into it.
