Seen the majority of it scanned it's nice but it's just the series with more context. It was good, don't get me wrong, worth buying? For me no. I'm just gonna read it then be done with it more likely than anything.

And it's less of a poorfag issue, and more me being a colossal fucking jew.

I get a decent stipend from my university so I can handle it, but I'll probably need to be a little frugal for the next month or so.

man i was prompted by /m/ to start buying these and it did not disappoint. Origin is the definitive version of the oyw for me. the bonus chapters in the last volume were pretty neat especially the one with loli hamon, loli kcyilla and teen girhen, dozle and sasro. show tha the zabis, dikuns and rals were once all on the same side.
the whole experience has left me wanting more books to collect but idk what else is good out there.

Yeah no. They should have done this from the start. I wouldn't even bat an eyelash if they charged for it from the start, and would have gladly supported them that way. I don't need the physical copies clogging up my shelf.

Probably will systematically burn the debinded volumes. Putting them into plastic sleeves and into binders would only take up even more space.
>>
>>13659365

Yeah, kind of like as said in one of the essays, it's pretty cool how Yas depicts an internal fall of the base (due to Sayla's actions), at the same time as the external, with the Federation's desperate MS assault plan. It was made much more intense and 'final' in general with stuff like the Fed brass and world leaders watching the battle from Jaburo, Bright and Gihren's speeches, etc.

Same about Sayla. What ended up happening a A Baoa Qu actually gave her something big to do in the grand finale, and the humanitarian work she does in Artesia 0083 and the semi-continuation of that plotline makes it feel whole.

Don't really care how Japan does it either, it's just pleasing to my eyes to see it right to left.

It's a damn shame that Vertical didn't think far enough ahead to have the binders make up an image which would make the order actually matter.

The again they didn't know how well it would sell at first, iirc the first 2 or 3 volumes had lower print runs so they could test the waters.
