    I own Uzumaki and I have to say the art is incredible, but the story isn't scary at all. It's just weird.

    I would love to know what other oversized collections are out there.


    I am also currently reading Mushishi, one of my favorites, but I only have it digital. I recently sold my physical volumes when I found out that volumes 6-8 are basically un-findable for less than 80 bucks each.
    Don't if this qualifies as oversized, but the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure hardcovers VIZ has been putting out are really well built and well designed.

    Just got the new Planetes omnibus vol 1.

    The binding isn't that bad for a 500+ manga, but I feel that the slightest tug could wreck it.

    I'm enjoying the idea of space garabage collectors. I was expecting a manga that just delved into what it was like to be garabage collector in space--and it does to an extent--but it sidetracks that and delves into the personal lives of the garabage astronauts, the world around the and the people they interact with.

    Prison School is probably in my top 3 Comedy series. I really love it and I was so glad Yen Press did larger 2-in-1s for it.

    Are you only interested in oversized collections that are also hardcovers? The OHCs I'd recommend that I own are Vinland Saga (https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=1568) and A Bride's Story (https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=37308).

    If it's just oversized Ubel Blatt (https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=2291) is one I enjoy.

    PictureBox used too to.

    I highly recommend the ten cents/alt mangas that PictureBox published.

    ALSO ALSO ALSO!!!!

    I am a Hero, Goodnight Punpun, A Girl on the Shore, & Otherworld Barbara are going to published in English.

    I almost mentioned PictureBox but that's dead now (coincidentally ordered Yokoyama's Garden a while ago).

    I think there might be a chance of Fantagraphics re-printing their stuff or at least some of PB's catalog since they're going to publish C.F.'s Powr Mastrs and Nadel's working at The Journal.

    I didn't know that.

    I think it would be wonderful if Fanta re-printed some of Powr Mastr; they're great comics that shouldn't be OOP

    Book 4 and the reprint of book 1 are scheduled for March/April.

    Getting a bit off-topic here.

    Can you tell if any of the manga they have published is missing from this list?(https://www.mangaupdates.com/publishers.html?id=388).

    I guess I add a section with the smaller publishers. I just wasn't sure if using space in the main post for ones that don't publish a decent number of titles made sense. Some like One Peace books and Udon only have 2 or 3 books at the moment (That I'm aware of).

    I've been interested in this, would you be able to snap a few photos of this and post them?

    Great recommendations, I think I will definitely check out Vinland Saga.

    I just am looking for sort of collections, oversized or not, hardcover or not. I prefer not to buy individual books if possible, also SUPER long running series I would prefer digitally I guess, I don't really have room for 30+ volumes of Berserk or anything.

    Similarly how I collect comics in OHC/Omni/Absolute etc I would like Manga that falls into the same kind of category/presentation.

    Not read much manga, the first few issues if Battle Royal and the odd book here and there, would be interested in some recommendations.

    It seems Lone Wolf And Cub omnibus volume 3 has gone from amazon, speedyhen, wordery etc. Have I missed out just as I've started to get in to it or will it be replenished?

    The first two have been equalled all my favourite books in story and art so far.
