    I've had no luck so far. I think the Chaser issue is cheaper than before, at ¥3600 or about $32. But that doesn't count shipping and I'm still willing to wait a little. Today I installed the Yahoo Japan app on my iPhone, so it will alert me of any new Outlaw Star and Ultra Jump 1998/1999 listings directly as a phone notification. The whole process of getting items from Yahoo Japan is pretty cumbersome, so I might start selling some of my items on the same section 3D prints are currently at for a much cheaper price than the eBay auctions. Anyway, I'll keep you posted on any Ultra Jump issues I find. I'm in no rush since I have a lot to translate before I get there.

    My heart practically skipped a beat when I saw this auction: http://page10.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/j...ion/m195588844

    After doing my homework though, it seems none of the issues are the ones I want. I might bid anyway, just in case. (I'm getting pretty desperate.)

    I got in touch with a company that specialises in "item hunting" of sorts, or also an online order service. I was mostly asking about the Ultra Jump magazines. Here's the reply I received:

    In general we can't accept searches for items offline as it can be very time consuming to find items in physical locations (if we know an item is in stock somewhere, like it is limited to a specific store, then we can assist).

    Usually online prices are pretty indicative in Japan of the value. If the magazines are priced highly online they are probably sort after and will be expensive no matter where they are found. I'd recommend this site for the best deals though: http://www.suruga-ya.jp/search?categ...%E3%83%97+1999

    If you wait long enough you may be able to get a good deal at Yahoo Auctions but it could take months or years for one of the volumes to show up on there for a good price.
    She makes a good point. I should really be taking any chance I get. Even though I've seen it before (linked in a previous post), the URL she sent shows the issue that's supposed to have the final "Chaser" chapter inside. There are two problems. First of all, I'm not absolutely certain it does. I'd say it's a 95% chance. Every sign suggests it is, but I don't perfectly know how the issue format of Ultra Jump works. Secondly the reason I didn't jump at this opportunity in the first place is that it's not cheap. Ignoring the hundreds (maybe over a thousand) extra yen for postage, packaging, proxy commission and extra international shipping it's still $37 for a single magazine. I must confess that I already ordered a few Outlaw Star things a couple of weeks ago. If I ordered this magazine within the next week I'll probably be able to get it inside the same shipping package which is best cost-wise.

    So, I'm having a problem with affordability now. I guess maybe I dug my own grave by giving into the temptation of other Outlaw Star items. Regardless, since we're all in this together and the manga is something we all want, I want to ask for your assistance in getting these magazines. If a few of you chip in $5-10 for each one it should help me out a lot with the final value. Should you go ahead with this, while I would feel a bit guilty about being the one who receives the magazine, remember that I'll be performing manga surgery on it, so after I debind and scan the chapters the magazines will be effectively useless to most people. Let me know what you think.

    Another sighting: http://search.rakuten.co.jp/search/m...E3%83%97+1999/

    It's interesting how it's always the "Chaser" issue I see. To be fair it's a pretty good one to find since it contains (hopefully) the final chapter of Outlaw Star. I just wish the other ones would pop up somewhere. I found this the other day: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/r145076951
    It's extremely frustrating, because it's one issue before the Chaser chapter, and one issue after the penultimate (Sacred Ground) chapter. In other words there was a two-month separation and this is smack-bang in the middle. Still, if I'm able to afford the Chaser issue, at least it's halfway towards extra chapter completion.

    Well it was the reason why I joined the forums originally when it was OS UK. I'll pitch in $5 via PayPal for the chance to get those chapters. If anybody else is down to help out I say let's do it and see what we get. If it does have it, awesome. If it doesn't, we can at least rule that issue out then indefinitely.

    I sent a message to Faeye on the Comic Vine website who has made many contributions to the Ultra Jump section, and I'm really glad I did! It turns out the one we thought had the Chaser chapter in it in fact does not, and she's provided a very good explanation as to why that's the case. The great news is that the one I linked to in my last post (thinking it was very nearly what we want) is actually the issue with Chaser! Even better, it's currently only ¥1000, which is at least ¥3000 less than what I was planning to order. I can afford this. Anyway, here's Faeye's response:

    I will do some edits to try and figure some stuff out there, I've had trouble tracking down all those early issues myself for quite a while but the chapter you are looking for is almost certainly in No. 28, not No. 29 (I'm in the same place as you where I've had to put money down on back issues to confirm these things).

    I believe they mean May 20, 1999 as the release date, not the cover date and Ultra Jump always releases itself a month before the cover date (in modern days it's almost always on the 19th but a holiday could push it to the 18th or 20th).


    If you check the index of the 28th issue here, you'll see Outlaw Star is listed in the contents. Meanwhile, if you check 29 here, there is no Outlaw Star. Hope that helps, this is exactly one of the reason I do this work. I'm sure you know already but jauce should allow you to buy that 28th issue and have it shipped to you. That's how I've had to do it at least.


    I will upload a few more issues if I can based off the frustrating retail covers but if you do manage to get better covers of any of them, please feel free to upload them here!
    I did not expect that! Japan sure has a frustrating way of handling their cover dates. This means that this issue could be the one with the first Intermission part: http://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/d...19150&ref=list
    But fortunately I don't need to take that risk as I already got that in a doujinshi. Still, this could change everything so I'm going through all the listings again to find any dated one month before the release. At any rate, I should be able to afford the issue on Yahoo, but any future contributions will help since I'll almost no doubt run into more expensive magazines.

    Jauce looks interesting, but since I currently have an order waiting with Japamart I'll place a snipe bid on issue #28.

    Update: Headshots! I won the auctions, two magazines for ¥1000 each. (Well, there will be some extra costs on top of that.) I have no idea what's in the second magazine, but since there is an Outlaw Star chapter I figured I'd just go ahead and buy it. But at least we're nearly certain I'll have the final chapter (Chaser) soon.
