I watched the movie, it was quite confusing but interesting. I hope a scanlation group will pick the manga, once it starts again.

*I* for one am very excited. I shall away with my money; ready to be thrown at wherever from it rears itself, and whenever when it offers it's sweet nectar to me.

Funny, since I just started reading the manga. Isn't it completed?

I'm glad that the FSS manga will be coming back after all these years, the one thing I want to see happen is...

NINE YEARS!? Wow that's what I call a hiatus and I thought other manga had it bad

I might read this as it sounds somewhat interesting, although that depends if I can find decent scans of the rest of the series.

Holy Shit, I put it on hold after the first few chapter because I was told this would never be finished and had other things to do back then but this changes everything. Glorious news.

Maybe it can get a new anime too if the comeback goes well.

Certainly hope so. The FSS movie was pretty cool.

I have a feeling the HOTD manga is gonna end up like this one did.

Holy shit, never thought Five Star Stories would ever be mentioned again.

I just have a feeling that Nagano Mamoru's vision is too grand for him to handle. The chronology he comes up is really fascinating and even though I could not say I love its very unique character and mecha design, both look really effeminate and baroque, I remember getting so excited to read about the new chapter of the epic tales of the rise and fall of all those heroes with their beloved Fatima's back in the 90s. This manga still holds a place deep among the sci-fi fans in Japan and this is why this news is big there. I am not sure how familiar this legendary manga is to western fans though.

Oh wow, I can't believe it's back. This was like, from way back when I was still watching anime on Thai TV & going through the manga in our local library.
