There are two new compilations in the Evil Heart (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12502)series of aikido manga by Taketomi Tomo:

The first volume appears to include Ki-hen from the previous series.

Can't wait to read this - thanks for sharing! I just found a link to an English scanslation here: http://www.mangareader.net/512-29887-2/evil-heart/chapter-1.html - yay for fan translators.

Hi Carl,

Hisashiburi desu!
I just got a hold of the new Evil Heart volumes when I was in Japan last time. I am so happy to see that they are continuing. I'm reading them at my usual snail's pace with trusty denchi jisho sama helping me along. I hope they get translated "officially" so that they can reach a broader audience. The story is great, aikido is represented very well in all its physical and spiritual aspects and it touches on very important social issues in Japan as well. And the techniques look good! I hope we get to see each other soon in Iwama. I'm bringing a group of students over to Shibu Dojo in September.
In aiki,
Ethan

Hi Ethan,

I still haven't got around to actually "reading" them yet but I will require similar assistance from Mr Electronic Dictionary. Thanks for your review.

We had a tip off about this. We've been looking forward to it ever since.

See you then

Carl
