object fetishism consumer product comparison report:

i think viz have done a pleasing commendable job of reproducing the hardcover japanese edition complete with slipcover and red edged pages - the paper quality however is inferior - the japanese edition width = 4.6cm, english edition = 3.9cm - and no bookmark ribbon, which is good actually (bookmarks are annoying! - as anyone owning my limited edition “rubber doll” book will testify!) - anyway, been looking forward to this all year - i doubt any problem with content, story and art are a given? - this is someone who can make an engaging thousand page manga about ping pong! (k “read it” in approximately 15 minutes flat!) - wonder if viz will now resume publishing, the admittedly experimental and awkward, “no.5″ they so rudely ditched (tho still proudly boast they’re the publishers of)…?
