Almost missed this piece of news! One Peace books announced earlier this month that they’ll be releasing the comedy manga, Crayon Shin-Chan. CMX originally published the first eleven volumes before the company went kapoot, though the Crayon Shin-Chan manga itself is fifty volumes total.
Amazon.ca has listings for those three volumes which include the covers, page counts and release dates. Interestingly, all three volumes clock in at a hefty 360 pages each, suggesting they’re more than the usual single volume each. All three are scheduled to come out in October 2012.

“Hes rude, hes crude, and adults tremble whenever hes around. His inappropriate comments and obsession with body parts and bodily functions make life stressful for his struggling parents. No one is safe from Shinchans verbal outbursts . . . and now, neither are you!” – Crayon Shin-Chan (Vol. 01) [CMX]
Potty-humour comedy isn’t my thing, so I won’t be giving Crayon Shin-Chan a second go. None the less I know there’s a fanbase out there for it so I’m happy to see those readers given a second chance to enjoy a series otherwise out of print.
