I am almost tempted to find some way to get a subscription to Big Comic Original just so I can get it as it comes out. This Keaton fangirl is about to burst from excitement.

That's nice! I love Urasawa, always been interested in Keaton. Hope this doesn't get in the way of Billy Bat though.

I doubt it will. This is FAR from the only time there have been two Urasawa series in production at once, and it sounds like he won't be the only one working on this.

Finally, an excuse to check out Master Keaton. Doubt I can finish it in time, though.

What a coincidence. I'll be finishing the anime tomorrow. It's a real fantastic show. Does the anime cover all of the manga though? If not i'm gonna have to get to reading!

Welp, better get to reading it then, Urasawa's a genius.

uwwwyeah, but i kinda forgot how the original master keaton ends, and it'll be 20 years after the that, so it'll make him around 50 in the sequel.. hmm

I have to read/watch this sometime. It's sounds interesting.

Anything Urasawa-related is pure golden. Brilliant news. It's interesting to see Nagasaki pulling the strings. I can trust he will do a fine job.
