To match up with the new anime, there is also a new release of the manga, a "Perfect" edition of sorts (although it is called the Color edition officially) which preserves the color pages from the manga when it ran in Jump. This new edition features new covers by the original artist (you can really see how his art style has changed over the years). The covers are done so that they create a large connected picture. The volumes are designed to try and keep storyline's together in the same book. They release about 3 per a month. As they are still being released I only am showing the ones I have so far. You can see that due to basing the number of pages on story size the width of the volumes vary. They have also broken the story done into sub arch's which are color coded. The blue first arch is "Disciples of Avan" and the second is "Dragon Knight". Volume 1 has the contents of the original tankoban volume 1 and part of volume 2. It is equivalent to the bunkoban volume 1 as far as the story goes. (It is amazing how the camera showed all the grime on my cover. Went to clean it after taking the picture. Did not look this bad in real life). It is equivalent to the bunkoban volume 1 as far as the story goes. So I will compare it to these editions. The Bunkoban basically is the same as the Tankoban version but without the extra pages etc so I will focus on the comparisons to the Tankoban. The pictures from the covers of the Tankoban are found in volume 5 of the new edition. A side note before we get started, but this title page is likely the inspiration for the first cover in the new edition. Continued...
