I also read Strania on the front cover!
(But since katakana is about all I can read this book will be mostly useless to me :cry: ... except for the pretty pictures! :lol: )

I was a wee bit underwhelmed by the 1st Shooting Gameside, gotta be honest.

What was disappointing about it? Aaaaanyway, this issue's going to have Crimzon Clover, so it has to be an improvement over the first anyways.

Well, for a guy who can't read Japanese, I was looking forward to the visual presentation. :)

Tbh though, the Japanese readers did note (on Cave-stg iirc) that there was very little new or exciting material in there - just lots of regurgitated stuff.

As a casual observer it just seems a little dull.

They arrived this afternoon! I'll start shipping tomorrow morning! Here are some pics:

A very impressive Gradius feature that runs for 26 pages starts with this:

Beautiful coverage of Trouble Witches!

Akai Katana coverage continues:

The back cover looks great as well!

An excellent addition to the series! Heres to many more in the future! 8)

I had the last one special ordered at Kinokuniya bookstore in San Jose and they brought it in for $22. I'll be heading there tomorrow with the ISBN for this volume to try it again.
