By dumb luck,on the way home from work
,I managed to find volumes 4 and 26 of the original Japanese Ranma ½
manga at World's Best Comics
.As the shop owner was unaware he had them in stock on the shelf,it turned out to be a steal of a deal at a buck a volume.Anyway,as VIZ
's domestic releases are longer than the original Japanese releases,Japanese volume 4 corresponds to much of the domestic volume 3 while Japanese volume 26 falls anywhere between domestic volumes 20 and 25...
So far,no Tochirou 2 episodes into Space Symphony Maetel
.If he surfaces in any of the next 3 episodes,maybe I'll download the required codec for episodes 6-13...
Happy birthday to
Kazuo Hayashi(who turns 62)and Ikumi Sutou(who turns 22)...
