Awesome, with all the hentai and yaoi we have to work on the Tezuka titles are a nice change of pace that everyone in the office likes. Right now I'm doing some work on Captain Ken and can't wait for it to be complete.

ROBOT was quite a bit before my time at the company but it was pretty much one of the reasons Wani hates us so I hear. Funny enough last week because we a have a number of extra copies of the first volume of ROBOT my boss gave me a copy and turns out it was signed by one of the artists.

>>
>>112878434
I wish there was some kind of kickstarter for reprints/rescues where people could put in orders. Except for books rather than dollars.

The first goal would be getting the thing to print. Stretch goals would reduce the price of everyone's items down towards the marginal cost rather than adding goodies.

And yeah, anyone getting to order any number of copies, being open to both retailers and end customers.
>>
>>112878252
>Captain Ken
Looking forward to that one, it's the first Tezuka I've bought with no prior knowledge of it at all. Still waiting on The Crater from another Kickstarter, hope the biggest issue is just lots of delays.

Haven't bought any of the digital titles or the hentai yet, neither plunge is one I'm quite up to, though I do enjoy many of the series you have available.
There's no chance of Sweet Blue Flowers, Kimagure, or King of Extreme Cooking going physical, is there?

>>
>>112878725
Sounds like an interesting idea, could try and talk with some coworkers about it. Bit ambitious though.

>>112878821
Yeah unfortunately there is no chance of our DMG titles becoming print as quoted from my boss.

But yeah prices are rather steep being a bit of an understatement in my opinion for the digital titles. The hentai we have been coming out with is some nice stuff, lots of cowtits in our catalog but we have started venturing into more unique genres. Some legal choices that have been made I disagree with but upper management makes their own decisions.

>>112878864

>>
>>112879180
>ambitious
Well, yeah. I don't expect it to work without a rich madman at the helm.

There are plenty of details to fill in, but I see it as some manner of web shop where you put objects into your basket/wishlist/whatnot and you get the items when a production run is feasible. Then there's getting the extra customers who only want to jump in when the reprint gets a greenlight, who will reduce the costs for everyone else, I leave that to someone with ideas.

No problem.

>flowers of evil
I'm enjoying that one, only two books in so far. Still not sure why the whole style of the covers changes so abruptly, but I assume there's a storyline reason for something so different. I hope there is at least, I get annoyed when a publisher changes the spine design halfway through by changing imprints - I think they do it on purpose.

>>112879375
Yeah bit unfortunate, I would like to see a lot of these titles in print but contractually we will only have digital rights for them and even then the rights aren't permanent. But it is nice that we are able get these title out at all.

>I like your president.
Yeah is a pretty nice old man who doesn't have much interest in the yaoi or hentai but with the oldies like Tezuka titles.

>>112879379
There quite a lot of pressure from those who want our yaoi reprinted. Every con or event where I am selling I always get the same questions about reprints and stories of how older out of print volumes are going for like $300 a book on ebay.

I do like the idea personally, it would be great as I am sure those that are willing to drop a ton of money on an old book could drop a similar to help a greater number of people get that same volume. An issue I do see is that a lot of manga publishers are contracting/losing money and aiming for newer titles rather than looking at the past and thinking about reprints.

Its been fun /a/nons, got to go to bed for work in the morning. Will check back later.

At least you're getting something.

Here 4koma have never been published, comedy/sol is often ignored because doesn't sell enough while we keep getting dozens of generic battle shounen every month that people buy.

What's the point of having one of the biggest localized manga industry around when the variety is absimal and just keeps churning out more of the same?

It's fault of the shit taste of most of readers for the most part, but damnit publishers never even tried to propose something different.

What is the price range for shipping manga in japanese?
>>
>>112888551
250-300 yen per tank for SAL. A bit less by sea, a bit more by EMS.
>>
>>112888542
English release is omnibus format so it has less volumes but the same content

>>112888551

This seems like the right thread so I need to ask something. I'm too dumb/drunk to make my own thread.

I ordered some things from j-list for the first time and payed for premium shipping. According to the order it should be 5-6 days business. It's been five days business and according to the tracker it hasn't even fucking left Japan.

Is the tracking incorrect or is it really going to take that long? I want my fucking games and manga dammit.
>>
>>112889611
Do you use japan's or your nation's postal service's tracker?

Unless it's EMS (your parcel's ID starts with EM or somesuch) or other fast service (e,g, DHL), it can take eternities.
>>

I'm impressed with the number of people who have original Japanese language volumes in their collection but how many of you can actually read Japanese? Do you buy them to read? to collect? to support the author/series? Or all three. I have the entire original release of Sailor Moon and Cardcapor Sakura in Japanese but only have them to collect since I can't read them.
>>
As soon as I own my own place and I'm earning a decent amount, I'm going to buy one of those beds with a sliding drawer underneath and store mango in it.
>>
>>112889965

True, and they may take much better care of my order than the thug mail carriers here in the states. I just wish I knew where it was and what's going on. I've sent things internationally but almost never had things sent to me.

Everything usually goes very smoothly when sent to Japan. Not so much in other countries.
>>
>>112889970
I usually buy Japanese manga if it's a series I really like that won't have an english release, if it's really long I opt to buy artbooks for it instead

I don't read moon

I found it even better than the anime in some parts, namely cutting superfluous stuff and exposing better some key points of the plot (like how the fuck Adam appeared on Gendo's hand).
Plot-wise, follows the TV serie up to ep 24, the EoE up to Sea of Life scene, then gose on it's own (not yet completed) ending.
>>

I can't really say "You're missing out", because Italian manga publishing have some big faults, but at least when comes down to sheer amount of volumes/series the only competing market among western countries is France (which is slightly better for /a/ - and my - standards due to which series are published).

Obviously there are ups and downs and you have to be wary of what you're doing, but overall is a quite good.

I used to browse #lurk and all that shit on Rizon ages ago. Makes me feel old remembering it.

I could always use an android app to rip batoto again but then I'd have to xfer to my pc to read it in big portrait screen glory.

Also Batoto doesn't allow upload of most of the lewd stuff so I have to obtain that from scanslator sites and shit.

How very hispanic of you.

Fyi you can lay down the last few on the end or a small series so they act as a stopper to hold the rest of the stack up. For example you could lay the Hidmari's down side ways.

On another note I own an original print copy of the US hidamari vol4 or whichever one it was that cost like $90 for awhile because it was so rare. Too bad they reprinted it, though its good for the bros that missed out on it.

I thought so. It's basically the game but with some other random twists. It introduces a new random villain, but I mainly got it because you get to see Haseo, Endrance and Atoli in their real life/outside game selves. I got mine for $4 each, so it was worth it for me.

As much as knowing they could have saved the franchise with a reprint of some early volume.

I got 1-3 and 5-14 of Ichigo 100% for cheap on a blowout sale. I reckon every additional v4 could have created 5-10 additional sales.

They're comfier to read than computerised displays. I find computers (which e-readers ultimately are) distracting and wish to rid myself of them when I go to sleep.

Then they cater to my stone-age lust for owning real things. I like turning real pages and using real bookmarks and ironing out pages that got fucked up in shipping. They also impress people, whether weeaboos, comics nerds or not, files barely impress anybody.

How's the Higurashi manga compare to the VN and anime.

The Hidamari fanbase has been through most things imaginable. From nosubs to "Sunshine Sketch" to terribad DVDs (even for license DVDs) to gorespam to a core seiyuu catching japanese cold to getting a publisher to reprint a moe 4koma. While in some sort of a slump at the moment, the old fans are pretty hardened and willing to pay up for their wide fix. Younger fans follow their example because of the wish to belong.

Anyhow.

Yotsuba and Hidamari Sketch have english releases.

Nichijou has a partial finnish release.

Yuyushiki is only in japanese.

Hey, it's the artbook CD anon.

A lot of things that won awards sold like shit, sadly. My favourite manga won an award in Japan and then all 20 volumes combined sold under 200 copies or something atrocious in English. Different market, not much you can do about it.
>>
>>112877915
Oh man, DMP you used to be the only faggotry shop in town, after Blu (TP) and co sunk. I tried so hard to support you as best as I could, but you only release utter shit oneshots and have stopped part way through actual series too often. I can't bring myself to buy anything you put out any more.

>>112912810
I'm missing volume six, which last I saw was around $50 used. I can't bring myself to pay that for one book, it's the principle of the thing. I had them all at once point, but used to lend books to people left and right and somehow that one never got back to me.

I really wish there were more fans, and I was tempted to scan it for /a/ but now the company is selling it digitally and I don't want to mess with the sales. Not that anyone would buy it I suppose, there's clearly evidence to support that. The lack of scanlations means no one to talk about it with though.
>>
>>112912317
Its real awesome, we got some pretty good relations with the Japanese publisher so we have quite a number of Tezuka titles in production.

>>112912760
It's understandable anon, publishing oneshots is a very safe thing for small publishers as the yaoi oneshots was our primary source of income for a while. Publishing series are quite a bigger hassle as they come with their own issues. We personally don't print all too many of our books in comparison to bigger manga publishers so stock usually lasts a few months. When I've sold at cons if I didn't have a volume 1 I could be sure the other volumes would sell like shit.

We have started publishing hentai under our project-h imprint. A lot of hentai series that I have hoped we would publish have been shot down as they were a series. In recent memory we had a chance to grab Aki Sora but it wasn't going to happen for a few reasons, being a series was one of them.

My biggest problem with DMP/June is what they license is just, well, it's shit. I also have the first couple volumes of a lot of things they just stopped publishing with only a volume or two to go, or they waited years between book releases and as a result the volumes are two completely different sizes because they switched over to smaller volumes. The proofreading on the LNs, especially the early ones was non-existent. I even have a couple titles where none of the pages are in order.

I bought, and kept track of titles, from DMP for a long time. I want to say since 2003 or 2004. I kept buying understanding they were a smaller company that doesn't have the resources to do a lot, with the hope they would grow and improve. They just kept getting worse though, and I started to feel guilty supporting them. I wanted to love DMP, I did. I still have over 600 volumes of their manga but it just wasn't worth it. I hope they are a better company to work for than they are to be a customer for.

Yeah a lot of the old issues were before my time. From what I gather with a lot of the inconsistencies were because of changes in where the books were printed. I also do have a sort of idea where a lot of these issues came from. A lot of staff have started as unpaid interns that may have gotten paid after a period of time then hired but a lot of interns do leave after certain period of time and employee turnover is rather high. I personally started out as an unpaid intern for a little while.

I do believe more recent titles qc has improved minus the DMG stuff which is outsourced to freelance individuals and their work is so-so at times and incorrect at other times.

Vertical has another licensing survey? I don't even know what series they've done recently.

Beginner collector here.

Sadly, I have a very small collection and I don't really know what to get a lot of the times when I go to barnes and nobles.
I recently found out that Otoyomegatari had an english release I plan on picking that up some time.

Also, is it possible to get any of the individual volumes for Azumanga? I'm not really fond of the big omnibus.
>>
>>112922395
We all started with a small collection at some point. I remember buying my first 3 volumes of 20th Century Boys a little over a year ago. I actually want to pick up Monster Musume, but I have other things I want to get more as of now.

Sadly, a lot of the manga I want don't have english releases. I'd totally buy all the prison school volumes or Dumpire and friends.

Also, to the people that own it, how is Seven Deadly Sins? Found out it was by the guy who did Kongou banchou and I enjoyed that a lot.
>>
>>112922557
Some of the manga I really want is out of print, Planetes and Mushishi being some examples. However there's so much I want localized that I know never will so I understand your pain.

>Planetes
Have you checked Amazon?
They seem to have it.

Get Berserk if you spot volume 1, and maybe up to 5-10ish. They'll be hard to find for a while.

I've been actively looking for them at Barnes and Nobles.
Sadly no luck. I did find Gantz though, may have to buy it some time.

>>112894524

Just sorted this shit out. As I feared I need another shelf. No space for the Black Lagoons, or a bunch of S's and T's, plus I have another stack of stuff that isn't sorted into it which will require shifting stuff.

Should try taking a picture but its 4am, lighting will be shit.

>>112898887
I'm confused. Why the price difference?
>>
>>112925232
Regional sites sometimes.
>>
>>112925273
But shouldn't the price be the same for all the volumes?
As far as I understand it, they throw the shipping in the price you'd pay, so why is one volume half the price of the other?
>>
>>112925308
They just don't keep them in sync I guess. The .uk and the .com sites gave me different prices before. Sometimes they have sales on which apply to to only one of them.
>>
>>112925369
*Sometimes they have sales which apply to only one of them.
>>
>>112925369
Do you know, by any chance, if using a proxy would lower the price? I'd guess so, considering they show you the full price before introducing your address.
Because that should be stupidly easy to exploit if it's like that.

Tfw you started your collection as a total pleb and now you're not proud of it at all.

I'm also missing Fairy Tail Vol.1, the first two volumes of Death Note and the BB LN, because a friend borrowed them.

They aren't cheap so are they worth picking up?

>>112929296
These are books in a box. It's the Kodansha boxed book line, called "kodansha box", so yeah. slightly better paper, a box to keep the book in, bit more expensive. That's about it.

Looks great, though. Nice bookshelf design.
