This makes me very happy! Time to clear up some space on my manga shelves. Between the novels and manga, KH is invading.

I hope that when they release them in English, that they do that whole 3-in-1 deal that had going on before (I know they probably won't though)

Not even probably; they're just not going to do that. Amano currently doesn't have many more chapters done beyond what will be included in this first volume.

Like Sign said, Amano hasn’t finished much else beyond what we are getting in this first volume. He’s currently running through 0.2...slowly...it’s turning out great but it’s very slow moving.

But also, I do have the page count right there in the OP, which is the standard length of a single volume.

You know what would be funny? When Young Xehanort appears before Sora, he doesn't recognize him. In the games Sora does and Young Xehanort was 'honored' that he remembered him. But since they haven't met in the manga it should be the opposite, similar to how they handled Mushu, that would be funny.

Oh my god Amano is about to have a mini and highly comical recap of DDD in this manga, isn't he?

Since we never got a BBS manga I can't WAIT to see Sora's reaction to Ventus and Vanitas..
hahaha although you know what, he will probably be the same as he was in KH3 since he never actually met them physically until that game.

Amano has actually been handling BBS/0.2 content in the manga rather maturely so I wouldn’t be surprised if when all of the Ven/Vanitas stuff starts happening, he’ll treat it more as a serious mystery.

KH3D stuff, though? He’s gonna rip on it so hard because it’s just so ludicrous.

I wonder if they'll skip Pirates? I don't think I've ever seen Amano do any drawings for POTC in any illustration. Which means Luxord might be out a world...again. I also wonder if there is licensing issues with Pirates or they just don't wanna draw it.

Yeah, just like in the games. I think they made them normal-sized when Days came around.

You're sure about this? Look at the size of them! Even Sideshow Bob would be shocked by how big their feet were in the first two games.
