That should be re-written as:

− Some designs look a bit goofy, title character never appears, long-ass wait between volumes.

Eh, I'm thankful I'm getting this manga in the first place. Didn't he almost die when he rushed the conclusion of Gunnm several years ago?

I collect the original manga as well and volume 10 got released this July - one whole year after the last - so I don't think he's planning to speed up the process anytime soon. I think they're worth the wait though. Right now it's my favorite series.

It's not a matter of him working faster. It's just the way Ultra Jump works, which is unfortunate, since the slow pace seems to be part of the reason so few are licensed (Please, someone bring us Kokouku no Shugosha[which just ended I believe] or Cloth Road or Dogs!!). The chapters are shorter than usual monthly manga, which means the tankobons usually hold more chapter than the average monthly manga...which means, since it's monthly, it takes a bit longer for those tanokbons to come out. It's a shame really. Ultra Jump has some great looking series.
