    Anyone living in Tokyo?

    I just moved here a couple of weeks ago, will be living here for at least the next 3 years due to work.

    Anyone on MH actually live in Tokyo? I don't know anyone so I would love to hang out w/ fellow manga lovers.

    BTW, what's the deal with Weekly Jump raws?!!! It doesn't come out until Monday here in Japan, but raws are usually already out on Thursday/Friday??!!! Scary!!!!

    You misunderstood him. If I get it right, he said that the RAWs are out (on the WWW) on Thurs/Friday but it is the Thurs/Friday before the Monday when they're in stores in Japan. As in, it's released later in Japan than it is on the WWW.

    Yes, tho it seems very weird. But it's often on the net before it hits the stores.

    Re: Anyone living in Tokyo?

    Yeah man! I'm not 100% sure yet, but I'll check the local stores tomorrow and on Monday... I'm pretty sure the One Piece 555 and Naruto 461 will be in that "future" issue!!

    This is kinda sad... I was looking forward to subscribing to Weekly Jump so I can read sooner than everyone and support the artists at the same time! orz

    Yes, it's official! Weekly Jump just came out today in Japan, One Piece 555 and Naruto 461 in this issue! You guys have already read it since last Friday!!

    How in the hell do these people get their hands on the raws so quick?!

    I guess that either it's a leak. Or they are just later in the stores and maybe it's released at the same day in NA.

    Re: Anyone living in Tokyo?

    I heard that some people manage to get it from bookstores outside of Japan and it's earlier than in Japan itself...I mean, I went to check with my local bookstore (in Thailand) and WSJ comes out on Friday or Saturday... .__."

    But again, I heard that some of the fastest raw providers actually got their raw in Japan itself (like Heiji-sama), so...I bet there got to be some kind of leak somewhere in the country as well for sure. Not sure where is it though... .__."
