Ah, right, they dropped that one like a nuclear potato after they found out the details of the later volumes as I recall.

Vertical seems to have mostly turned their back on the historical and/or transgressive stuff in the last few years. They still put out some neat stuff, though (BLAME! reissues for example). I'd love to see more Kyoko Okazaki stuff from them.

Default I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF THAT ONE'S A SEVEN SEAS PUBLICATION.

Look all I know is the last time I was in a Barnes and Nobel I went to the mango Section and saw the picture on the spine or something called "vampire Bund" and just said "Nope keep fucking walking".

It might encourage you to know that Zack Davisson, an extremely skilled translator who has previously worked on Shigeru Mizuki's stuff for Drawn and Quarterly, has been tapped to handle the translation here. I have a lot of faith in him to handle this correctly.

I would! Devilman fucking rules and everyone should read it!
