I remember reading somewhere that the manga was actually getting a serial run in a monthly manga magazine over sea. And most of the time with manga once they get so many chapters they release a graphic novel of them. Does anyone know if Hasbro has any plans to having this translated and publish here in the states by IDW? Since IDW had the Beast War's first book re-printed in manga size I'm sure they would stay in with IDW instead of outsourcing it to like say Tokyopop or Viz. I know I can get scanalated pic online but I like to have actual books in hand when reading. I would like to have a chance to read it even thou It may or may not be bombarded with clique and typical manga style gags and jokes. Not that I have a problem with manga but I burned myself out with reading nothing but manga for the last ten years of my life. And I have slowly but surely stopped reading them so frequently. Because when you have Transformers as a hobby you can't afford another one.
