Where to buy Guyver Books master thread

Recommended Posts

Can someone help me please. I bought volume 30 and 31 last year from this forum. I paid for them and they were sent to me by email in English. now want the latest volume in English but, the forum has changed a little since last year so, I really don't know how or who to contact for the purchase in English. I don't want the physical book, just photos like reading online.

It had all changed since last year. Jess, who used to run the advocacy gave it up after the threat of legal action and the new administration team run things a little different. There's no way around buying a book.

If you want access to all current scans as they are translated( which will become book 33) and all previous translations as they are added to the vault, you need to purchase a good chunk of the annuals with promise to complete the collection, if not, buy all of them and post a picture of them with your name in this thread:

If you just want the scans yearly, as the monthly scans are grouped together and archived, you can purchase the most recent annual and post a picture with your name on here: http://www.japan-legend.com/forum/index.php?/forum/130-access-request-area/

This option is available for books 30, 31 and 32.

So, if you want just book 32, you will have to buy it and have your photo with your name by it (examples in the second link) to receive access to the scans.

It is a pain, but the team are only covering their backs so no legal issues can come the translation work they do. If you own the book and have a translated copy, no one can argue.

Thank you for your help. I am planing to get all books soon. I will post a photo with my name. One more question please, is there a difference between the normal volumes and the viz graphic novel? thanks again really appreciate it

I found a collection for sale on amazon.co.jp for a reasonable price, that's how I got mine, £58 or $75ish.

I'm not sure on the viz graphic novels, I've never purchased one to look at what it is inside. You could post in the guyver section of the forum for more information, one of the guys will know.

Whether they count as one of the books in place of the the Japanese ones, you could send Sully a message. He runs things now. He's a busy guy I believe, so he replys when he can.

Will HLJ stock Volume 32? Does anyone know? It looks like people have started getting their hands on the volume, but HLJ doesn't even list 32 on their website as far as I can tell. Anyone know what's going on or does HLJ usually just take a bit to get their hands on it?

I would suspect that if they were going to stock it, it would already be on the website. It has been out for a good few months since it was released after all. Perhaps use another website:)

Anybody get books from Buyee in Japan.  I see lots of complete or partial sets for $20- $60 US.   Beats the $150+ I see on ebay.  Anyone have an idea on shipping charges though since it would be bulky and heavy?  The ebay sellers are charging around $100- $150 for shipping making a complete set through them about $300.
