Latest Gangan stuff [Jul. 27th, 2006|12:18 am]
Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry


My copy of the latest Gangan arrived some days ago, and I scanned some Arakawa related stuff~

Her message for FMA's 5th Anniversary:

Right after FMA ch61:

Towards the end of the magazine (some new manga for Powered Gangan?):

If someone can/want to clear things up (i.e. what are those or something), it'd be more than welcome :D

Oh I am curious as well thanks for scanning. :D (I especially want to know what Arakawa's message is).

Omg omg, on the second page it's announcing Arakawa's new work: Souten no Koumori. *__* I think you would translate that as "Bat of Blue Sky"? Either way it looks and sounds cool~!

*will come back to look at the rest after dinner*

Apparently! I think it's going to be released with some other new stories by other mangaka? "A spectacle of newly written works by super popular authors!!" *insert several names I don't recognize* "Remake everything!" (I think that's supposed to be a catchphrase) "On release this week!"

...Is there such thing as a magazine called GanGan Custom? Cuz I'm not sure if this is advertising the same thing as the third page, which says there will be an "IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT/PUBLICATION!!!!" in the August edition of GanGan Powered...

I don't know of anything called "Custom"... o__o

I'm thinking of ordering the next Powered if I can though, Amazon.co.jp sells it too.

*FACEPALM* I misread the kanji. It's "this fall."

I did some googling, and this GanGan Custom is apparently a special edition of the GanGan. There will be some kind of announcement made in the August edition of Powered regarding Arakawa's new work, it seems.

Now that you've said that, that does look like a bat on that girl's face in the first ad!

As for Arakawa's message, she lists several dreams she's seen (the wind blowing her drafts into the river; assistants she hasn't hired yet getting in a fight; reaching the deadline but 20 pages are completely blank; not making a deadline and all the other manga authors do horrible things to her, etc.) Then she says that in 5 years, none of those things have actually happened, and she thanks the readers.

Oh! thanks for the scans! (I'm so late to post ^^;)

If amazon.co.jp sell this Gangan Custom, I'll definitely going to buy it, if not, I'll watch the auction on yahoo Japan and catch it later!

A new story by Arakawa, so exiting!

She seems to be more productive since the end of Hagaren's anime, a chapter of Raiden-18 in December, then a drama CD, a chapters of Shanghai Monsters, then this new story ...
