Yeah,I went to the book store Books A Million inSevierville,TN on the day these was to be out dec.4th! But, the store didn't have them on the shelves. So, I couldn't get volume 17 of Bakuman or volume 2 of YGO Zekal. Sigh how desapointing this is when Ur books are to come out and the stores don't put them out on Ur said dates.
