Manga Giveaway: From Eroica with Love Giveaway Winner

And the winner of the From Eroica with Love Giveaway is…Matt! (Matt also recently started a manga blog, Matt Talks About Manga. There’s some great stuff over there, so be sure to check it out!)

As the winner, Matt will be receiving a copy of From Eroica with Love, Volume 1 by Yasuko Aoike. From Eroica with Love is a great series that is unfortunately out of print in English. For this giveaway, I was wondering which out of print manga people would want rescued. I was also curious who else might be a fellow out-of-print manga collector. (See the From Eroica with Love comments for everyone’s complete responses.)

Here’s a few of the out-of-print manga on our wishlists:
2001 Nights by Yukinobu Hoshino
A, A′ by Moto Hagio
Banana Fish by Akimi Yoshida
Basara by Yumi Tamura
By the Sword by Sanami Matoh
Eden: It’s an Endless World! by Hiroki Endo
Emma by Kaoru Mori
Fist of the North Star written by Buronson, illustrated by Tetsuo Hara
Four Shōjo Stories edited by Matt Thorn
From Far Away by Kyoko Hikawa
From Eroica with Love by Yasuko Aoike
Happy Cafe by Kou Matsuzuki
Lone Wolf and Cub written by Kazuo Koike, illustrated by Goseki Kojima
Monster by Naoki Urasawa
Please Save My Earth by Saki Hiwatari

Most of the entrants didn’t consider themselves out-of-print hunters although a few mentioned that they had to resort to it on occasion. Two different people mentioned finding manga available in Japanese instead of tracking down the English equivalent. I really need to work on my Japanese reading comprehension so that I can do this, too. (Plus, that would mean I could read a ton of manga that will probably never be translated!) Still, tracking down out-of-print manga can be fun even if it is frustrating. Personally, I’ll probably be pursuing the hobby for quite some time.
