Don't you sometimes just want to jump back in time? You say, man things were great in the year 2011? I know 9 years ago may be a very specific amount, but what about this lost gem of a manga series from 9 years ago!
While formally attributed to "HIRO" as the artist... boy doesn't that sure look like a series that Hiroyuki Takei would have created? That's because he did! At the time he was still working under Shueisha so he needed to have his own pen name when working under a different publisher. This is the first of 3 chapters for this mini series.
This mini-series also got published digitally in Japan as well! It has all the color pages plus some extras. So even if you aren't a fan of "LBX: Little Battlers eXperience" buy the volume digitally to show your support!
Note: This release was suppose to come out on April Fool's Day. Oops! Bringing back that tradition of weird releases once a year. We didn't quite make it in time, but then again, the first chapter of this series came out 9 years ago... so clearly we are just far behind. Such is life.
