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.

I couldn't get into this. Everything always ended horribly.

HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE

Someone is trying to bring over Franken fran?
>>
>>137409262
That was the point, it's a black comedy.
>>
>>137409262
Yeah it's great.

>>137409424
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.
>>
>>137409482
Yeah fuck that.
>>
>>137409682
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.

This gave me a false hope of an adaption.

It's getting localized.

Anon you just made my fucking weekend with this news. Holy shit.

I would have preferred individual volumes instead of the omnibuses but either way I'm extremely excited to pick it up next week.

Can you post more Franken Fran pics?

So, will there be any protests due to pic related?
>>
>>137422438
I doubt it. It looks like most people didn't even know it was being released.
>>
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.
>>
>>137422512
>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.
>>
>>137422512
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.
>>
>>137420998
Fran is more important thank whiskey anon.

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.
>>
>>137411677
Holy kek

>>137423208
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.
>>
>>137422512
>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.
>>
>>137408980
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.

They fucked up Monster Musume.
I hope you're speaking of just that one series.

Strike Witches had all its nipples intact.
>>
>>137424009
I'm not talking about the actual panels/drawings themselves just the translations and what the characters say.
>>
>>137423940
Of the volumes that I've bought, they've all had nipples included. I didn't get up to the itsy-bitsy part, but that's the main complaint I've heard about their release of the series.
>>
>>137424085
See >>137424085
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.

That's a shame too, since it has a crossover with Frankenfran.
>>
>>137423940

How exactly? They gave her an accent that doesn't match her original dialogue?
>>
>>137408980
Frankenstein was the name of the scientist, not the monster.
>>
>>137424877
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...
>>
>>137425087
Buy the untranslated manga and read the scanalations?
That's what I plan on doing.
>>
>>137425252

I would rather have a physical copy though. Maybe I should just wait for someone to compare the fan translations to the retail release before I make up my mind.
>>
>>137423799
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

>>137423674
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.
