So I never did get to posting a more 'full thoughts' post on this magazine, mostly cuz by the time I got around to it it'd been too long since I read it, and not wanting to look back and forth between my tablet and laptop (it didn't ever seem to want to work on my laptop for some reason), so I thought I'd ask...any further along on the possible print copy being a thing?

I just wrapped up my second reading. This time around I noticed that, in the last article, there's a screencap of the old MFG fansite with a news post I put up on it over ten years ago. Finding a scrap of myself from my young days in the magazine made me chuckle hard. Much love for the great efforts poured into the magazine and everything else, gents.

That is amazing. By the way, do you know where I can read Toriyama's manga, Pola & Roid? :D

Nice work to all involved in this amazing magazine! :clap:

I am curious, do you guys plan on doing something similar for Dragon Ball GT 20th anniversary?

Somehow I seriously doubt it :D

(They haven't even touched the GT review of awesomeness for three years at this point, they clearly aren't GT's biggest fans).

It's not really a question of liking or disliking GT, it's just that this magazine marked the 30th anniversary of DB as a whole. There wasn't a separate magazine to mark the anniversary of the Z anime, and in turn there's not much reason to have a separate magazine for the GT anniversary.

This makes sense to me. I guess they could have covered everything in super detail, but then it would have been too long and cumbersome.

Finding his magazine somehow by accident while browsing internet is what ultimately brought me back to fandom after a veeeery long time.
Only after printing it for myself(at the time I worked at a print shop :P ) I realized there is a whole website and such an amazing dedicated team! It felt like I just discovered a gold mine! and now a year on, after extensive reading and listening on Kanzenshuu I feel I might juuust fit in as a oldschool - newbie :D Great work with the magazine! :clap: :clap: :thumbup:
Hi everyone...new user here :wave: . I'm returning to the fandom after 15 years and couldn't be more happy :D Before I created this account I must have listened to about half of all the amazing Podcasts episodes ( I'm still catching up with them). Finally built up the courage to officially join the forum. :D 初じまして!

Looks awesome! Would it be available for purchase online?
