I still need to get Negima 31, but I am disappointed in Kodansha USA suddenly deciding to nix the rough cover sketches.

Vol 27 of The Wallflower is that high up? I don't recall any of the previous volumes on this list before. Very odd...

The page with some commentary by Akamatsu beside sketches?

Yeah. The translators had worked on it, and I have no idea why they weren't included.

Looks like Kodansha won this round.

Aw :/

I wonder if they'd respond if fans e-mailed them. Their website has an e-mail address, but it looks like they use subject filters.

It reminds me of Sailor Moon Volume 2 with the side-comics that the creator had worked on for the Japanese re-release (that the English version is based on) being omitted. There are two blank pages where they would've been, but some error left them blank! Confused I wonder if they'll be back for a reprint, which is why I'm holding out on the second volume. I don't know what's going on with Kodansha.

Kodansha can be a bit iffy sometimes, it would seem. I have volume 2 of "I Am Here" and there's a horrendous typo near the end. One of the characters says "Your moving too quickly." I've been seriously tempted to get a pen and correct it myself. I'm fairly sure I've noticed some typos in volumes of Arisa as well. I told them about it on their Facebook page but, surprise surprise, no one responded.
