Re: City Hunter

There were many edits and changes made to the City Hunter collections released in Japan over the years. I don't even think his "original version" is even in print anymore over there. And like EChavez was saying, he's not sure the edit was made specifically for the U.S. version or not (and frankly, neither am I, I just know it's an edit made at some point). I had heard he'd be making some edits for the U.S. version to clarify things or change some scenes he didn't like, but I don't know if any of those edits really even saw print before Gutsoon/Raijin U.S. went out of the manga business to pursue film.

Well looking at my Gustoon copies, the pasties didn't even make it to the GNs as that scene was not print into GN form.
So I can only take it that they were only in the magazine. I know that was a stink of its own on the Gutsoon forums as no one knew if they would be in the final book or not but they never made it that far.
