So they are adapting 0.2 in the middle of KH3's storyline? Interesting. The art looks gorgeous

When I saw the June 11th date I nearly jumped out of my seat. But then I saw it was for the Japan release. For some reason I thought this was already released in Japan. Probably because of all the manga Aqua stuff floating through the net. With that said the cover looks good. Like all KH manga titles I shall get it.

Yeah, 0.2 is included in the KH3 manga. It's pretty awesome. So happy to have more manga of TAV for once. I was devastated when it was announced there wouldn't be a BbS manga so this kinda makes up for it.

Not really even the middle. This is right after Olympus, so it is done as a natural transition to Riku and Mickey visiting RoD for Aqua as a look back at how things led to Aqua being there.

Really liking the way this is going as it gives us actual content of what Riku and Mickey were doing instead of random cutscenes, and more Aqua will always be good. BBS being chosen as the one game to not get a manga adaptation and thus depriving me of Terra getting an actual personality will always upset me, so more of the trio throughout KH3 is good.

Hopefully when they reach the point of the story where they address the BBS characters and their hearts in more detail we can get some BBS flashbacks to go with it.

Yeah, for once I’m actually happy they are doing this in individual volumes instead of bundles like the earlier ones (minus Days).

I like how Shiro Amano always draws Mickey as looking aggressive lol.

Particularly dreamy cover. I like that we got the random behind-the-scenes sketch. Honestly, I feel like I've been waiting for this volume for forever just to scratch the itch of Shiro finally drawing TAV/BBS material, however via 0.2 it may be.
