I'm never sure to what extent you're all interested in Death Note related work, but I'll dutifully report upon new releases until someone tells me to stop.
Back in May, we heard how the English language version of All You Need is Kill - artwork by Takeshi Obata providing the relevance - was out in digital format.
Viz Media have now released a print edition for those of us who like to hold, sniff, display and gather dust on our graphic novel collections.
But only in the USA and Japan.
Hiroshi Sakurazaka's cult sci-fi novel follows the fortunes of Keiji Kiriya, who is trapped in the Groundhog Day from Hell.
Forced out onto a battlefield to fight the invading Mimics, Kiriya is just one more face amongst the general cannon fodder. Nor does he make it very far. He's soon killed and his body is piled up with all of the rest.
Then he wakes up. It's the morning of the battle once again and Kiriya has another chance to survive the carnage of the day. While all common sense says to flee, he's not given the option. One day, another death. Then he wakes up, and so on. Only each iteration allows him to add a little more to his observations, amassing a sum of knowledge in the angles fought and lost, which might eventually see him safely out the other side.
But what would actually happen if he did survive? And is this even the same world from which he first marched off to war?
Enjoy your pretty omnibus 2 in 1 hard copy edition of All You Need is Kill, America and Japan.
