Moto Hagio Perfect Selection

Moto Hagio Perfect Selection
Moto Hagio Perfect Selection (萩尾望都パーフェクトセレクション) went on sale last month. So far Vol 1 and Vol 2 are available. All color pages are being reproduced in their full glory! It's very interesting that this anthology starts with Tooma no Shinzo. Is that perhaps more popular in Japan than Poe?
