Hey, all-

First of all, a huge WELCOME BACK!! to luxetumbra! Am so relieved that you're back and all right!

veronicacode got a scoop on Minekura-sensei! If you haven't already, be sure to check it out. (Thanks very much to befanini for the heads-up!)

FWIW, the September issue of Monthly Comic Zero-Sum came out last Saturday. Its "Saiyuki RELOAD"-related fun bits were few and far between, but Sanzo finished 4th in a reader vote to determine what Zero-Sum character "might be an otaku" (he's a mayonnaise otaku, one voter asserted), some special goods will be offered at Ichijinsha's booth at the August 17-19 Comiket, and the issue came with a free Saiyuki RELOAD clear file featuring the front-cover art from the Vol. 7 tankoubon.

Also last Saturday, I lucked into the Studio Backgammon doujinshi "Taiyou No Tou" ("Tower of the Sun"), from February 1994! Minekura-sensei, who was 18 at the time, drew that Gojyo picture above for it. Didn't know this book existed! (Although am pretty sure have seen that Gojyo picture somewhere before...maybe it was one of her old doujinshi pages that got reprinted, about postage stamp-size, in "Saiyuubito"? Mine is packed so can't check...) There are some eye-opening antiquities in "Taiyou No Tou"--about Wild Adapter as well as Saiyuki. Will be glad to share 'em after I move, if this book isn't already out and around.

Will be offline to move starting tomorrow...and there's still a ton of packing to do, yikes...! Dunno yet when I'll be able to get back online, but hope to be back soon.

See you next month!

Thank you for the news! Yes, the image that you posted is also (very very smaller) in Saiyuubito. Thanks for sharing the bigger version!
Have you this doujinshi? WOW! I'd like very much see more! *__________*

Don't stress yourself! We'll miss you but take your time, get cozy, and enjoy your new place! *hugs!!* I'll check my copy of Saiyuubito if I can locate it amongst my own packaging! (I feel your moving woes :P) Congrats on the doujinshi though!

Thank goodness Minekura is doing well! I think everyone's good karma is being sent her way! Now I don't feel bad dividing it and sending you some too :D Have a safe trip, and don't over work yourself!

Forgive me if I'm rambling, you by now know why! 8 more weeks of hell to go!

Even though her old art looks so funny in comparison, I've been dying to see those Backgammon DJs. Wonedering if they're as different as Crocodile Ave.'s HAELP! vs Gravitation. haha.
