Well more like volume 11 will be the end because at the end of volume 10 it states that it is the conclusion. The fight is just one section of the manga. And actually the very end starts a situation with Chris.


And the English release does not give a date past 10 because they don't list past what is known to be released. Particularly because it was over half a year between volumes 9 and 10, who knows when the 11th volume will actually be released in Japan. Then add in the time and effort to translate and reprint the book and it is very uncertain when a new volume will be released.

Hello everybody.

While visiting the TokyoPop site a while ago, I found a thread on the Suikoden novels, where the TP novels editor says that a translation of the novels MAY be considered but they think that there is not enough people that would buy them to make it worth the costs.

I left a little message there. What about visiting, and saying how happy we would all be if the novels were to be translated and published in English?

(Hope I´m not doing anything illegal by putting this link here.)

Please excuse any English mistakes.

Added on editing:

The editor only took a few minutes to reply to my message, and she sounded so nice! :D

Hope there's hope, guys.

Heh, heh, heh... yes, I sort of guessed someone from Suikosource must have created the topic... and your avatar is really nice! :wink:

Anyway, thank you for creating that thread in TokyoPop... I wanted to do that a couple of months ago or so, when the TP forums were first opened, but to be honest I didn't know where to start or what to say...

Great idea! :D

Thanks, and I did it because I was wondering if they would, since they are publishing novels now and they did do the Suikoden III manga.

Hey just a check-up, the latest Suikoden III manga ends at Vol. 9 correct? And also thanks to Ashton_Anchors for his efforts on bringing presuading T-P to bring over the rest of the Suikoden Manga.

Looks like volume 11 and final is just out in Japan right now. I must say that I really do like the Leknaat art on the cover of this one.

great, now I have something else I need to hunt down and order.

It's a Comic Anthology? Sounds like it may be more similar to Alliance, Brunch and Caravelle of old; instead of a proper manga adaptation.

First of all :

Hugo comes face to face with Luke at last!


...

Is this based on the Game?
Hugo is torn by a sacred relic slowly devouring his soul--he is snatched away by the Harmonian


I've never seen this... unless they mean the True Rune Crystal that Luc uses.

The manga has a slightly altered plot.

That 'sacred relic' is the True Fire Rune.

Nice, no details on the product (Americans are spoiled this way and have no idea how lucky they are) but yep it seems like it is a comic anthology. Not sure what to make on it. I typically wait until some of the sites that actually specialize on import books get such things to reduce the price.
