It should be noted that this is the "Princess Comics Deluxe" version.
There is an earlier edition for this series. The ISBN is 978-4592117339, it's Hana to Yume Comics, and was printed in 03/1985.

There is a difference in the content included in the two different editions. The earlier edition includes a bonus comic that is about the author and her family, and a little talk of how she was into spy shows growing up.
The later edition doesn't have that chapter but it does have some full color pages that weren't in the original.

That aside, the stories here are generally darker than "From Eroica With Love". It focuses on some of the difficult missions Z undertakes and his conflicted feeling over deceiving people and then caring about them.

[SPOILERS]
In the first chapter a spy has disappeared and Z is sent to deceive the spy's former girlfriend. He falls in love with her and feels guilty that she's been lied to so much.
In the second chapter they're forced to work with another group of spies, but Z is more trusting and willing to give information to their allies than the Major is and he ends up getting caught.
The last story is less serious and is about Z having a bad day at work where everything seems to go wrong.
(And if you have the earlier edition there's a bonus chapter about the author).

This is a pretty good series. I'm not sure if I'd say it's as good as some of the chapters in "From Eroica With Love", but I think anyone who likes that series would probably enjoy "Z" as well. I liked being able to see the Major and Z interact, and the added tidbits about the Major. It's great when the Major does things like try to show Z how to get to the bathroom and back in a timely manner; but it's also nice to see when the Major takes it easier on him.

All in all, it's a short but good series of side-stories. ( )
