    I know I said I was gonna finish up 2010, but after doing a bunch of translations for Chris McFeely so he could write Solon's article at the TF Wiki, I got real interested in this volume of manga. Unlike all the other volumes before it, Victory has an actual unique, continuing plot, character developement and doesn't require you to watch the TV series to fill in gaps. It's actually rather...entertaining.

    Sadly, it takes a few issues to really warm up. Still not much going on, but Solon and Jean's rivalry will gain some steam in #3.

    As for "Jean" over "Jan", we had a discussion about romanizing his name over at the TF Wiki and came to an agreement that "Jean" is a better translation, so I decided to switch over to that one.

    Totally unlike the TV series, huh?

    I look forward to seeing the rest of the story.
