Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Bride's Story: Vol 1 (Hardcover)
I was very pleasantly surprised by this Deluxe Edition! I was expecting a lot less I confess, but was blown away when I got the actual thing in my hands!
It got a dark brown hard cover, covered with a perfectly well printed colorful dust cover.
The dimensions are bigger than your usual manga: 21*15cm
There are no color pages inside, but that is because the mangaka herself didn't provide any colored pics (beside the book's covers) in the original books/chapters in japanese.
Inside, the printing is very well done and the wonderful artwork is really given justice to, it's a shame they didn't use a whiter paper and also the blacks could have been deeper, but that is really me looking closely at it.
I appreciate the fact they left the original sfx in jap and simply added up the eng text close to it, instead of replacing them.
I won't enter in commenting the actual story, it's simply amazing and very unique, the details Kaoru Mori put in each page is breathtaking, you can really feel a whole world being brought to life under her penmanship and crafting.
I highly recommend!
And damn, now I wish there could be a deluxe edition of Emma too! ;__;
