So it looks like Ariga's manga is getting remastered in comic-ish form. Instead of like 200-something page manga, it'll be 80 page installments released quarterly, and in color! From the looks of it, they'll be starting with Megamix volume 1 and working their way up. Mastermix volume 1 is scheduled to hit comic shops on January 24, and will have variant covers.

I'll probably end up getting this just for the fact that it's in color. The sample pages shown look pretty good, and I guess $8-$9 per book isn't too bad for 80 full-color pages.

Pardon me if everyone already knows about this. Udon posted about it back in early November, but I'm just now hearing about it.

Oh wow, this actually looks really nice. Definitely picking up a copy for myself.

I'm also going to pick this up.

Although an all-new comic would make me more excited. Or translations of material I haven't read yet.

Is it a safe bet that this remaster will only apply to Megamix and Gigamix? The remaster doesn't look like it's going to involve any new translations, and as far as I know, Megamix and Gigamix were the only Mega Man manga by Ariga to get an English translation.

I'd love to be pleasantly surprised, though.

I think so, yes. Which is too bad since I kinda want them to do his Maniax stuff.
