I'LL SHOOT OFF YOUR FACE, STEALER OF CAFFINATED BRAIN JUICE

[gTV] Karasuma Akane • 08/15/06 10:22am

So you shot off your face for nothing?

[gTV] Aya Reiko • 08/15/06 10:22am

This is why I shouldn't do the news in the morning before drinking a cup of Coffee.

><

[gTV] Karasuma Akane • 08/15/06 10:22am

Continuing Furu's train of thought on the Halo story...

First off, you're wrong. They've never advertised it as a manga. It's ALWAYS been advertised as a GRAPHIC NOVEL.

Secondly it IS in color.

To quote one of the original press releases:

"The HGN is a 128 page, FULL COLOR, high quality hardcover GRAPHIC NOVEL, featuring an anthology of original stories, including one big story, and three shorter tales. Side stories, if you will. It should be available in July, 2006."

I ALSO would like to note that this graphic novel has lead to Bungie and Marvel teaming up, once again, to do a monthly Halo series.

Far be it from me to shoot holes in the jokes, but

[07:59] Marvel's Halo only non-manga in Bookscan Top 10 Graphic Novels

Wouldn't this imply that it's NOT a manga? In fact, the graphic novel is a collboration between many artists and writers, only one of them being Japanese (the guy who did Blame!! if I recall).

Also, you can't emulated PSP games because lol UMD

GINGA TV IS THE FOX NEWS OF JAPAN D: FOR SHAME!!
