oh BLOODY HELL I didn't even think of that. Yeah, they sure are chinese. I
had to pick my way through the indeces of the books until I saw a line in
fine print that says "chinese translation by"

So, to re-phrase my question, could someone point me to a place that sells
'em in japanese?

(Man, an import store that sells JAPANESE stuff and I have to get chinese
books. GRRR.)
