I recommend you give it a try. If you like the anime, you will probably like the manga. Roy Benjamin Coert wrote on 2005/01/03: Very true, the manga is great. You can buy them from amazon.co.uk if you're interested. That's where iI bought them. Milo wrote on 2005/01/04: I am indeed interested! Thanks guys.
