I was finally able to buy the WHOLE new set and I just got it in today~!!! I immediately sat down and read all three of them in succession~! I waited until I actually had the 3rd book to read it, I didn't even read it online~ And I was not at all disappointed~!! But gosh~!! The feels~!! I loved it so much and I'm so glad I persevered to see the conclusion~!
Brilliant series, Ms. Jen~! And I'm excited to read your next projects~!!!
Oh, wow. I remember these two. Bought the original two volumes, back when TokyoPop existed. That was a thing, wasn't it? Artstyle's still good. But why are the paperback copies so expensive now? I remember paying £5.99 per volume. Are these new books in full colour?
I remember way back when, when TokyoPop sent me a calendar and Off*Beat was featured in it and I still have the first two volumes and the silly podcast thing. (The voice of Colin still makes me laugh. >.>) I was such a geek back then that I printed a bunch of your stuff out and made a little collage. xD; Now I bought the set of 3 'cuz the new cover art looks really cool.
I've been more or less inactive on DeviantArt so I had NO IDEA THAT THIS WAS A THING. Omg congratulations, Jen. I'm so happy for you. I'm going to preorder a paperback copy as soon as I get home from work today. ;___; It's still to date one of the only manga I've ever owned, and I still will read through volumes 1 and 2 every couple years and think about you. This is wonderful. You are wonderful. <3 I'm so glad you were finally able to get the third volume published. <3 <3 <3
