Any other /a/nons picking up Franken Fran next week? I haven't read it in a while and it'll be nice to have a physical copy to read. I hope it's not horribly butchered.
You can post more anime girls drinking.
Yeah it's great.
I don't buy a lot of printed stuff but apparently Seven Seas is bringing it over. I don't know their track record, so I'm hoping they do a good job.
From what I've heard, they're in charge of the localization of Monster Musume. And from what I've read of that, they're localization team is strong. So I have high hopes for seven seas.
Oh, good. That makes me optimistic.
I remember Fran was one of the first things that I read after coming to this shit hole, and I never thought it was getting localized. I'm excited.
Fuck yeah! Those Halloween threads were a blast.You're telling me they've come out with new material? Or just a (finally) official localization of the existing stuff?
Anime girls drinking huh.
So, will there be any protests due to pic related?
I already have all volumes in German and Japanese, I thought it was quiet popular in the US? Out of all countries usually Germany is the last one to get a localization, especially for such a rather obscure title.
>Out of all countries usually Germany is the last one to get a localization
While Germany is no France or Italy, it does get some series before they come to the U.S. Classic shoujo like Rose of Versailles and Georgie, for example.

That's actually really cool, might buy my sister some volumes of it.
>I always thought the US got the short end of the stick when it came to Manga releases. I always figured Europe had it better.
France is probably the best selection of localized manga. Germany has the bigger selection in yaoi though for some reason.
Actually, Georgie might've just been scanlated into German first. I thought it was published in Germany because the English scanlation is from German, but the credits page says it's from German scanlations. Sorry, it's been years since I read it.
That said, I heard that German Tokyo Pop did some series that never came to the U.S., though I'm not sure which.
>I already have all volumes in German and Japanese
Is it true the German one is censored heavily?
And sometimes Germany does get obscure titles.
I would never have bet money that SamFlam gets a dub, but it exists.
Seven Seas put out Vampire Bund and the only thing they did was to slap a sticker onto Mina's bare ass on the first edition of volume 3.
Rest assured they won't mess with anything on the inside of Franken Fran.
>no scanlators want to translate Kigitsus other works
Of the volumes that I've bought, they've all had nipples included. I didn't get up to the
itsy-bitsypart, but that's the main complaint I've heard about their release of the series.
The drawings/panels aren't what I'm worried about, it's what the characters said. If you change how someone speaks you can mess up their whole character just with minor changes.
>Helen ESP printed in english never
That's a shame too, since it has a crossover with Frankenfran.
Not from what I can tell in this series, but recently they have used lines and shoehorned in puns to make a joke, while also making the character say something out of line to make you laugh.
Hmm, then again, I feel like if I don't get this now it's going to just shoot u[ in price. I just recently wanted to own all of Mushishi in english, & some of those volumes are around $75 now.
Damn, what do I do...
Yeah dubs are fucking cancer, I wanted to watch umimachi diary in Germany but not a single theater had it without dubs, fucking crazy.
not sure about the censoring though, let me upload some pictures
Seriously though how come you guys still don't have Punpun and it's already 2016?
The untranslated manga is a physical copy tho.
you get to support the mangaka and have your manga with proper translations that fit the character.
You get to have your cake and eat it too.
>there are people who don't like Veronica
What the fuck?
