Manga artist / character designer / animator reminisces about how his art style has changed

So looks like the current release is out of print .
Sentai shop currently has it listed as backordered more stock expected 7/26 ,but I’m thinking what ever they get might be it since Rightstuf’s page now list it like this .

They could be planning a steelbook or collectors edition ,but who knows for sure .

The special exhibition for the anniversary is set to be held in Osaka and Tokyo in 2021

I wonder if this will be re-released. The prices on Amazon and eBay are insane.

It’s possible . It probably depends if they still have or see money in relicensing if they don’t still have it . If they can’t for some reason maybe Discotek will and give us the Streamline Pictures dub of the 8 episodes they did as a bonus .
