Is it colored? I heard the Manga was one of the few rare times Manga was in color

Is it censored or not tho? That's the real question.

The censorship is specifically Shirow's doing, so definitely


GodlikeCat

I highly doubt it comes uncensored, sadly

So the one page scene thats censored in all the manga isn't in this edition either? Is there a reason why shirow made the decision to censor? I didnt know it was his doing.

> They were forced to either censor some of the more adult themes or face losing a huge youth audience with a mature rating. Shirow himself opted to rework some pages leading to a sex scene so that the story would continue to flow without the censored parts

I see. A shame though. I've read the original and my library has an uncensored copy. Its a shame we won't get an uncensored version. I might just have to settle with this edition then.

Thanks so much for posting. Fortunes of being a patient buyer.

That's some cool cover art. I'd like that separately. Is this bigger or smaller than the oversized hardcovers we already have?

I honestly have no idea, I don’t know if I can find the measurements anywhere…
