A new compilation series is being released by G Comics, a similar format to the other GDW specials. This time it focuses on the Monkey arc onwards.

They describe a sweepstakes similar to the ones available in the previous issues on the back. Interesting to see plushies there again! Perhaps they are producing more due to popular demand? Also there are Tosho/Quo cards (can't tell which) available too.
Edit:
[ PRIZE ] An application ticket is necessary. Excuse me, Ask the publishing company about the details.

[ PRIZE ] The deadline is until June 10, 2013 of the Japan time.

I'm guessing the book has an application ticket, and you simply send in for a prize by the June 10th. So a sweepstakes/lottery where winners are picked at random.


Available from convenience stores in Japan, so keep an eye out on ebay!
Online links (unavailable to purchase though):
First Book
Second Book

Omg, this looks great! I'd really like to get these as Yukimura is one of my fav characters and the last few arcs in GDW I liked best in general. I really need to look out for it because I guess they are cheapest when they are still being released. Haha.
Thanks for this great news, Arano!

I'm itching to get my hands on it too - I've only collected the previous GDW specials because I don't have the room to collect all 60 GDW books, so this is great news for me X'D

Yes from the twitter description it is of the story arc with Yukimura in it ^^
It's already for sale in stores in Japan - where is the April 30th date from?
Gingastar
I'm very very interested to know why there are plushies on there....I hope they start producing them again! Though if they did I doubt it would stop people from selling them for astronomical prices....

Thank you for informing us, Arano!
Arano
Just updated it a little - I found that the second book is listed, though hasn't been published for stores yet
銀牙伝説ウィードベストセレクション 下
下 = last volume in, in this case, a 2 volume set.

I noticed this too. Pity doesn't say a specific date :I
@weedpedia is pretty awesome at posting about new books, so I shall be keeping a beady eye on their twitter for any follow-up. I think the only other thing they said was that they weren't sure if international fans could send for one of the gift/sweepstake things, which of course we all know we can't X'D
Azura
I'm personally more interested in the plushies than the books, but this is still nice to see.
GDWeed68
Know they are coming out with new stuff. Does that mean GDWO Animated series will becoming out soon?

I'm with Gingastar- I'm interested in the idea of plushies being mentioned in this...perhaps they will be making a comback, that'd be nice (Especially if this causes prices to drop).

I need to get these books- gonna be contacting my pals in Japan now.
Tora
Would love to get my paws on this (and every other Special books)!! Hope ut will appear on CDJapan!! ^^

I rather doubt that. The other special edition weren't listed there either. It would make everything a lot easier, though! xD

Oh, my mistake then, sorry. I only remember not finding the other newest Ginga books beside Orion on CDJapan when I searched for them. (Like the Gaiden remix or Byakuren no Fang rerelease.)

Good point there. Maybe it takes looooong before they come to CDJapan? Exept Orion that is.
Arano
I hope that it will eventually be on amazon, as the rest of the G Comics GDW's are available on there (used sellers though). But like the newest SJ remix of GNG, we didn't really have to wait that long for it to become more widely available, so I'm sure we'll see it pop up online in the next month or so!

This new edition is more like Gajō no Kettō Hen I think as it's a specific arc, as it's similarly labeled as a "first" and "last" book set. The special books were strange, not labeled as ordered volumes and ended at a really random point in the story.

This is a good sign though, if they're encompassing purely the Monkey arc. Paves the way for an eventual compilation book of the Russian army arc in the future... now that would be awesome.

Update! Release date is April 24th for online sales.
Kuroi
I contacted a seller on ebay from whom I bought a lot of my Yamato mangas and he answered he will very likely get them sometime in the near future! smile.gif
(I just hope I'll be quick enough to buy them...! xD)

Just copy pasting from my phone for now, but weedpedia has posted a picture of the books on a store shelf - they're quite thick!
Kuroi
Seems to be the same size as the Byakuren no Fang re-release which was also published as "ue" and "shita" (two volumes). I like that size smile.gif
Uru
Is there any news about this? Is it avaible to order anywhere?
Arano
No news as of yet, I Google it every day (x
This is supposedly the ISBN number: 9784537160017

Am keeping an eye out for it, but I'm confident that it'll turn up on ebay eventually if its not available to order online directly (:

Thanks to my contact in Japan- I managed to get the whole set (2 books)-
Can't wait to get them OMG-

-Photos below in newest post-

Will upload my own photos of them once I get them less someone else aquires them first and does so- WOOP.
Tora
Amazing Snugglebottom!! ^^
Arano
Ah sweet! Who is the seller? Don't suppose it's teyandeh? I get a lot of stuff from them but have never thought to actually ask them for these X'D

I send them a message on ebay and asked for it but they only answered they would add them to their ebay shop at some point in time... |D
Capt. Snugglebottom
Arano- yup that's who it was- he's good about getting new stuff and posting it- just keep a lookout for them.
They were sorta pricey though but I was okay with that- I'm assuming they are bigger books? I'm not exactly sure but I do know they are both 544 pages each.
And that's fine with me- ^^
Capt. Snugglebottom
SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST BUT- I got these today-
VIDEO:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bErfGY2AjM...eature=youtu.be
My picture quality isn't too good today considering its very dark and rainy but...

Here's the books next to the "Shin Gaiden Remix" book that came out last year:



They are sadly the same size as the regular mangas, only twice as thick- They are both 544 pages long so they are pretty thick. But otherwise the same :/ I was hoping they'd be bigger but oh well.
Regardless they are still nice-

And it looks as though we may be seeing some Orion Merch coming out soon-


So yeah that's them- they are great to have for sure- Nothing fancy inside- sadly no colour pages or anything- but I definitely do suggest you guys nab the set when you can, they are very nice regardless!

And sorry if the photos look massive- I am in the process of uploading a video of these to show more in-depth detail on them. I'll post that when its done uploading.
Arano
Awesome! Looks like they've brought out an Orion QUO card, that's about it XD haha. Thanks for posting the pictures! Can you make them smaller or link to them instead (in both your posts)? So they're not stretching the board ^u^
Tora
Wow! Thanks for posting pics. ^^

It's a competition/raffle like the original release, and the application to win one closes on the 10th June.
RiKy
Hey, is it right, to in Japan, who bought the newest G comic Weed manga (and she/he was lucky) got an GDW plush o.O
Not sure, but from this auction I think....
http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e140653979
Arano
Excellent find!

From the description this person is selling the Akame plush prize they won from the prize draw in the new G Comics GDW compilation edition. They also say that there were only 35 winners of the prize draw.

You can see they took a picture of the note inside the plush bag that explains it is an exclusive G Comics prize.

(Just going to add the images in here so we don't lose em when the auction ends X3)





RiKy
Oh my.... It's incredible biggrin.gif
Then I translate it well x)
Good for him/her ^^
GinTheshootingstar
looks awesome biggrin.gif
Tora
Amazing! Really nice find! ^^
RiKy
Hmmm, may I think, the plush was the B prize, it got 35 people, and the C is the phonecard, the C prize which get (or got, I'm not sure to will get or already got these) 50 people.
Good for they x)
Capt. Snugglebottom
That's a really nice find- though sorta stinks that its only 35 total plushies given away as prizes. LOL ah well XD
RiKy
But on the other cover give as prize others.
A and C same, but the B not plush x)
GinTheshootingstar
weird enough xD
RiKy
Hmm...It's a price too biggrin.gif
Good for him/her to get it biggrin.gif

GinTheshootingstar
lucky person xD
Blue
Ooh that's great! I've ways wanted a GDW/GNG plush. I think you can only get them in Japan though. Plus, they're pretty rare ;(
Arano
Have merged with the G comic topic to keep everyone in one place ^^

The plushies appear to be the "Drawn Scars/Markings" variety from the looks of it- The Jerome looks like mine- which is the one I have.

And I really would love to have that Orion Card!
