If only I could read Japanese

I just finished watching a Japanese action movie called K-20: The Fiend With Twenty Faces. It was loads of fun and felt like a superhero movie (complete with training scenes and swinging through the air with the sort-of love interest). It was based on a book by Soh Kitamura, so I looked it up on Amazon, hoping it had been translated. What I got was:

 

Transfer Twelve Looks Phantom [Japanese Edition]
