I'm excited! I was wanting this from GenCon but glad I held off on trying to import this.

Hey thats cool, hopefully the rules are cleaned up a little bit. Looks like they may be keeping the art? I would love that instead of their usual fantasy art.

I hope they do keep the existing art. That is a huge sell for me. I haven't looked at AEG's other games in their "Big in Japan" line.

Our only planned changes are to text (language) and some rules/card effect updates from BakaFire since his first printing.

We're also looking at making the boards/tokens a little larger.

So we are getting the second edition(第二幕) of the game? That's awesome.

If its not to late is it possible to get a different title style? The current version on your wesbite feels very counter to the nature of the game and very disruptive to the overall art flow.

Glad to see the translation is ready to be played, i have been waiting over a year to have others to play with!

Looked at the rulebook and this strikes me as a typo:

Each Megami has 7 Normal Cards Each.

Shouldn't one "each" suffice? Same for special cards.

The site now says October 2017 at the bottom, and pre-order Jan 18. I'm still hopeful for an Essen release, but not thinking likely.
