:X wow, that is very expensive...considering the japanese versions cost less than $7/book. the chinese versions are even cheaper. if ya' can't read them, the pictures still describe the story well.

I have that Singaporean (English) edition of the book.
It costs SG$8.50 here, so you may want to convert it and check whether the price is reasonable.

hey every one,
i checked a currency converter website and found that:
8.50 Singapore Dollar = 2.68692 British Pound

so this guy is charging around 17Singapore Dollars for this comic.

but thats not gonna stop me, i'v been looking for these comics for well over a year (since i finished vol 7) and here in england, a chance like this is VERY rare.

well look no further. after the bid ended today i emailed the guy selling vol 8 to check if he had any others and if he intended to sell them. he confirmed with me that he was gonna sell 2 more but didn't say wen he would put them up.

In Hong Kong I would guess HK$35 dollars. That's how much it was before I left for USA.
