What is "Alichino"?

If you know what it is, great. Skim down to the next section. ;-)
 
Still here? Okay. A quick rundown...
 
ALICHINO is the title of a manga (I do sincerely hope you know what manga is) drawn by an individual named (or pen-named) Kouyu Shurei. It runs in the bimonthly phonebook COMIC EYES, published by Home-sha which apparently is a subset (or partner?) of Shueisha. As of February 2000, there are two tankoubon / compilations released; both with transleucent dustjackets showing Shurei-sensei's wonderful color art (if you have seen CLAMP's CLOVER tankoubon, the formatting is very similar). Since there are five to six episodes in each tankubon, and the series is on a bimonthly magazine, don't expect the third volume to be out until at least February of 2001, though.


How do I get "Alichino"?

The best bet is to go to your nearest bookstore that carries Japanese books (even better if they stock lots of manga). The chances are rather slim that you will find it just sitting on the shelf (because EYES is such a "small" publication that not many big-name stores carry EYES tankoubon in bulk) -- but even if you can't find it, you can always order it. (Of course, you might have to wait for another printing if the publisher is out of stock...) Take the following information down, and you should be okay.
