It probably means that they haven't set up an online store yet. 'tis all. You'll just have to wait, or order something from Singapore.

I've been considering buying FMP: Sigma from one of these guys...though I really don't like the idea of paying that much.

I think Chuang Yi is mainly a wholesaler which is why they don't have an online store. Last time I talked to them, they said their releases are available in Singapore and Australia. Try checking Madman.

I've alway had the impression that their books were of crappy quality.

I remember a flattened piece of coal-like material falling out of a "Slamdunk" I got from 'em. Also, in the very same copy, two of the pages weren't separated correctly so they were joined together at the top.

The worst was comparing their copy of "DNA²" with one from a Taiwanese publisher. There were one or two missing pages from the end of a chapter. Perfectly innocent scenes too with no nudity, no sex, and no violence; in short, nothing to warrant removing them.

Now, bear in mind that it's been a while since all that happened (since, obviously, I stopped purchasing their books). It's been about... 10 years or so, and the ones I bought weren't in English.

But a friend of mine reports censorship in his copy of "F. COMPO" (also not in English, but nevertheless, still from Chuang Yi) where they had drawn over a nude body. He can't recall exactly when, but this happened within the past 2-3 years.
