    Woah! This could possibly be the BEST… NEWS… EVER!!! I’ve been waiting for some Mizuki to be translated for ever. Any news on release dates? I guess, it’ll not be for a while.

    This is great news. Especially his war autobiography which I have wanted to read for ages.

    But I do find it really odd that GeGeGe no Kitaro, his most beloved and important work and in fact the whole reason he’s such a japanese cultural landmark, wasn’t picked up
