Abara: Complete Deluxe Edition HC – Tsutomu Nihei

5 out of 5

A gorgeous, well-printed and bound set of Abara and Digimortal from Viz Signature.

As they did with their Blame! re-presentation, Abara is presented over-sized, clean, and supremely well translated.  The binding opens easily, and the book is both weighty but light enough to hold in one hand for reading.  Color pages open each chapter, with fold-outs for the first chapter of Abara and Digimortal, each.  Some translation notes are at the end of Abara’s first chapter.

This is an ideal way to take in this work, not to mention it being the first time – I think – its been available in print in English.
