My copy arrived in the mail today! This is my first print title from SuBLime. This is also the first official MK English translation since the release of the Overload (Rules) doujinshi back in December of 2010.
Although it goes without saying, I’m going to say it anyway: the color page is very much appreciated. However, I don’t particularly care for the generic look of the title/author info on the cover.
I get that it lends a sense of consistency to the the look of the SuBLime library, but still. The transparent band is fine, but the choice of typeface and the white stroke make me cringe every time I see it. Despite my disapproval, I’ll stare at it habitually since I’ve finally got it in my rotten hands.
I’m excited to read it again. The second and final volume is due in September.
I say “final,” but the dashing Eitaro-san is out there somewhere and that’s more than enough reason for MK to set pen to paper. Let’s hope.
