Hello! I am so excited to share this with all of you. There were new editions of the Sugar Sugar Rune manga released this year in Japan. There are eight volumes for the original editions, but with this new one there is a total of four books, each of them containing two volumes worth of the manga.
I have the complete eight original volumes in English, but I could not resist the new editions. The cover illustrations are simply gorgeous. Can you guess my fave? It is the one with Pierre~! *^^*
I am so stoked that they have been releasing new merchandise and content for this series. Over the years, the author, Moyoko Anno, has made new illustrations of the characters and has produced new merchandise, such as a 2020 calendar, newly released bookmarks (I’ve shown them in another post), and now these.
Besides these new manga editions, there also was a different release of a collection book showing more in depth information on the series; more illustrations of characters, rooms, and the world.
I was surprised with the little heart, notebook-looking item attached to the back cover. It turned out to be a mini magical item catalog from the series~! ^^
The new editions are well made, easy to flip through. I opened the first and last book to check the contents, and from what I saw, the content is the same as the original—no new illustrations or plot changes.
The content may be the same, but the cover illustrations themselves make it worth it. Before, there was, like, nothing with Pierre on it. And now there are more items than ever featuring him. So happy~
