I now work on this manga for Tokyopop, so it’s unethical for me to review it. *cough* But to clarify: ADV first picked up the manga several years ago, published the first two volumes, and then stopped. Tokyopop has since attained the license and is re-releasing the entire series starting from the very beginning. Volumes 1 and 2 (which feature a new translation, adaptation, editors, cover, etc.) are already out, and Volume 3 through whatever (I think it’s 9+ volumes in Japan) will be coming out on a regular basis.
And that top picture isn’t from the manga–it’s from the incredibly dirty doujinshi the two creators of Tactics put out. It makes me laugh/cry.
Educated impression: Ask someone else. (Lianne)
