Deluxe Edition Edit

The Deluxe Edition (豪華版), or Refurbished Edition (新装版), was first published in five hardback volumes in 1987. It included coloured pages, but many of the reprints have these in black and white. It was republished in five volumes in 1997, in one omnibus in 2000 and 2008 and in four volumes in 2009. The 2002-2003 five volume English/Japanese bilingual releases are based on this edition.
