Spine on the Faux Leather Editions

    Hi, y'all. I just got the first collector's edition of Full Metal Panic and it's pretty awesome except for just one thing. Right on the spine under the silver lettered title is a matching "collector's edition" label. I can't be the only one that think this looks a little cheap. The faux leather already differentiates this edition and this text just stands out as unnecessary and garish. I really hope J-Novel Club will consider skipping this text on future releases.

    So your complaint is that it says "collector's edition" on the spine? I don't see the problem with that...
    Also if they don't do that on future FMP hardbacks, then volume 1 will stand out as inconsistent.

    It also says Collector's Edition on the cover.

    @teleute I personally like it :)

    While I agree that "Collector's edition" being printed everywhere is kinda stupid, especially with there being no regular edition easily avaliable (if we count TokyoPop releases as that), it's no big deal, imo. It could've been much worse, like some ad "sticker" or a few reviewer's quotes printed into it.
