Magic Kaito - Volume 5 (officially?) ANNOUNCED?!?!

Post by akai-kun »

So, I haven't found something in here which kind of worries me a little bit but since this is not just some thing you say out of the blue (at least, if your name isn't Gosho by any chance), in Germany, EMA (which publishes Conan and Magic Kaito) last year decided to reprint our versions of the 'Magic Kaito' manga (called 'Treasured Editions') and now they have finished with no.4 but at the end they presented us German readers with a little treat, a look into the future and amidst all of that, there was this to be found:

Since this was way too big, just open the spoiler tag, thx.

Since this is clearly bad English, it has to be from the Japanese people as this is not something unfamiliar to them. And boy, what a news that is, VOLUME 5 is coming! Can you believe it? Hope you heard more than me and what do you think of that? Unexpected news, indeed, but very good ones! :)

Especially interesting here is, it is official and not just Gosho's "joke" back in time where he announced vol.5 to be released in this century and it kind of points your thoughts to a nearby release, don't you think?


Volume 5!!!!  8-)  - #HYPE!?

I hate to rain on the parade, but there's already a Volume 5, or at least 2 chapters of it.  This is the chapter that the spoiler pic is from: http://www.dctp.ws/MKaito/V5-2/A1.html

On the bright side, both chapters are already scanned by DCTP, so if you haven't read them yet, now you can! :D

Note the "!?" though. This message appears in the Japanese version of the Treasured Edition as well. *holds it up*

In other words this will still take years before anything actually comes of it. We've only had one story not published in a volume yet ("Phantom Lady"). Gosho's got a lot of writing and drawing to do to make more Magic Kaito chapters before those can ever be collected into a Volume 5.

All I'm saying is don't hold your breath in anticipation. :/

Yes, true but the thing is as two chapters don't form a complete volume (at least not fur publishing) and it was now printed by a publisher, it kind of implies that there may be something new coming up for Kaito. As to how possible that is, I can't tell because it has been ages since the last volume and so far we only got treated to one new story (the one you linked to and DCTP released a while ago). But I'm wondering why would a publisher print this advert if there weren't anything in the talks for the near future because the thing with EMA is, it doesn't really advertises anything unless they want to go through with it. (Remember, no one would publish a volume for two chapters, well at least not in Germany.)

So, I'm left wondering, what if(!) Gosho did indeed draw/write some more chapters but did in secret and they have yet to be published, even in Japan? For what it's worth, at least some #hype has been put into my and (I guess) many more brains, that's good enough for now. :)

Ah, i see what you're saying. Not sure how they handle releases in Germany, have those individual chapters been released yet? It could be hinting at that.  Although I believe I read somewhere that Gosho said he'd like to do 1 MK volume a year, so a full volume 5 isn't too unlikely.

In Germany, only volumes are published, we don't ever get single files, sadly enough, except for some unofficial fan scanlations, similiar to those done by DCTP. And that will most likely not change anytime. So, that's why this advert came kind of as a surprise because why print such if you only got two files and you only publish full volumes? And here goes my hope. ;)

I really do hope he starts working on the MK series again. Its so much fun reading the manga over and over again, but to have more releases to continue the story would be a lot more fun!
