  1. Also, the synopsis is outdated, here is the final synopsis of volume 1.
    “Shintaro Kisaragi is about to have a terrible day.

  2. The first volume (hadn’t checked the others) is not available on amazon, neither Kindle, nor paperback version. Is there a PDF version of it somewhere? I have the others, but not this one :(

    • Clicking the above links, I still see the first volume on Amazon is available (both the print and Kindle versions). I’m not sure what could be the issue, other than maybe your region doesn’t have them? I don’t know where you’re at.
