I hope so too! The drama CD was released last October so that's at least one step closer!!

(For interest, Hiroyuki Yoshin as Bossun, Ryoko Shiraishi as Himeko and most importantly Tomokazu Sugita as Switch! :D)

Wait, so the General Winner is not in MAL database?

Nope. I can't tell you the last time I saw a raw seinen manga in the queue either. Raw additions are rare enough as it is.

Is it going to get added though?

When someone submits it, sure.
