>>
>>121076357
nice dude
>>
>>121076357
Please, tell me why I shouldn't buy localized manga? I agree with you on anime, since the releases are purposely made worse to curb reverse importation.
>>
Azumanga omnibus
Yotsuba
>>
>>121077209
It's a waste of money, and it supports middlemen. You don't need to buy manga to read the content, so you're buying it for collection purposes anyway. Why wouldn't you want the original version if you're buying it to collect? You also support the artist and save money. Berserk is $550 to buy all 38 volumes from Amazon.com, it's roughly $200 with shipping from Amazon.jp.
>>
>>121077538
Localized manga has better paper, in some cases, and you support a middleman when you buy it from japan too and localized manga has value as a collectible too
>>
>>121076154
First time i see someone that owns bobobobo
>>
So far all I have is Yotsubato 1-12, Tetsuwan Atom 1, Doraemon 1, Dragon Ball 1, Chi's Sweet Home 1 and all of Shirokuma Café. I thought Atom had furi but it doesn't. I need to finish Le Comte de Monte-Cristo and catch up on some ongoing manga before I get through them.

At least I didn't waste (too much of) my money on localized garbage.
>>
>>121077752
>better paper
That's the only thing you're right about. The other two are completely false.
>>
>>121077538
But what if I prefer to reading on paper in most situations? And again, in many cases, the quality of localized manga is comparable to the original. Hell, Vertical's release of Gundam the origin is pretty much the exact same as the Japanese Aizōban release.

>>121078032
Learn to read, I said you don't need to. You're going out of your way to waste money.
>>121078033
You're claiming that buying from a Japanese retailer is the same as buying through a Western one, because "they're both middlemen". That's a retarded fucking argument. As for the second point, you think that localized manga has "value" as a collectible. First off, it's not about the value, it's about having the original product, and supporting the creator. Localized manga has no value, because it's overpriced shit for teenagers to buy at a bookstore. Buying localized shit is a waste of money, and you look like a retard starting a "manga collection" thread with a shelf full of /co/ garbage and localized shit.

I kinda wanna support the localization of Light Novels in the US, so I recently bought the first 3 Spice & Wolf books, the first Index book, and the first DanMachi book from Yen Press.

I don't want to have actual manga or anime in the house, since it's not something I want to waste my money on and throw on my shelves. I did pick up the first volume of Bunny Drop though on a whim one day, probably won't buy more though.

I've only got Vol 1 of watamote to honor it being released. Slowly buying Yotsuba and I bought the Azumanga bible and I've also got Solanin. Going to buy Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency when it comes out. I wish onepunch man would be printed in English, it's available on kindles but they're not printing it which sucks. You guys have any manga you'd buy if it was localized?

I didn't even know they made those. I'm not particularly fond of buying ongoing series either, but the artwork in that series would make me reconsider it.

The big ones are omnibus 3-in-1 collections of the original series.
The smaller ones are NEW Lone Wolf and Cub, the sequel series which Dark Horse is currently releasing.

Yeah, buyfag threads are basically just figure threads. Their logic is like:

luckily for me my dad has been collecting vinyl for the past 25 years and when he croaks I get all of it

He has some in the hundreds-thousands price range too. Is it bad that I would probably just sell it all when he dies? I don't really give a shit about vinyl

So, /a/, do you prefer the standard size/format of Jap tanks or the format that English publishers give their releases which vary a lot?
Like, I see lots of omnibus releases and larger/hardcover editions in English than compared to Jap editions. Or would you rather them all be uniform and standard?

I think GoGo Monster had a print too, I definetlly wanna pick up Blue Spring and Tekkonkinkreet. I'm really hoping Ping Pong gets translated now that the anime has been out. Viz seems to be the only ones printing Matsumoto, I hope they won't let me down.

France doesn't have to deal with copyright issues of American bands. I wonder how Viz will get around that with their editions.

I became interested in that recently. I love the art and its abstraction of dance. Too bad it's out of print. some of those volumes are super expensive.

Those Thermae Romae English editions are fucking beautiful. I love what they did with them. I've never seen a manga designed like that before.

Nice collection overall.

They've only licensed Part 1-3, so I wouldn't get my hopes up. Unless there's something I'm not aware of.

How many people here own japanese volumes due to lack of localization?
>>
>>121081230
Abebooks and Ebay. Personally I was able to find a lot of OOP stuff at a local comic shop but that was a few years ago.

If you really want something you can save tags on Ebay too, so say if you're looking for something by Jiro Taniguchi you can have it e-mail you whenever an auction comes up with his name. There are also a lot of "manga lot" auctions where people will sell a couple manga and you pick which ones you want from their collection. It's mostly junk but I've found a couple rare ones that way too.

>>121081414
I was able to find it at a comic shop, they must have had it sitting there for a really long time because when I bought it they didn't have it in their computer system.

>>121081229

I've bought some volumes of Cyber Blue and Captain Harlock from a kinokuniya store. I doubt we'll see localizations of those any time soon and they're good manga for just enjoying the art.

Starting from third or fourth volume translation was given to absolutely different people. Most notable example I remember is that Ebisu speak normally during the time she had half-dead brain.

For only a handful of pages? I think you're overreacting a bit there.

I actually reread the first 9 volumes two days ago, and honestly I couldn't tell any difference.

I just did some 2-minute research and found the VizBIG editions to be superior. Larger, more color pages, better paper. They're slightly cheaper than the VizBIGs but they don't seem to be worth it. Read the reviews on amazon.

How would you rate the English manga publishing companies?

I think mine would be:

Yen Press > Vertical > Viz > Seven Seas > Kodansha

I want to put Seven Seas higher but I don't know. They has some great titles like Monster Musume and Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer but like 90% of their series just don't interest me. The work they've done on the books I have from them are good though.
>>
>>121083732

I have it because in 2015 due to the miracle of global capitalism I can drive 5 miles to Kinokuniya USA and buy original tanks for $8. p.s. donating to scanlators is a total scam

Also grinding kanji flashcards will eventually kill your soul if you don't find some other ways to change up looking at moonrunes. Why not manga?

>>121083754

Yeah, I stopped at 10 because of that, it seemed kind of pointless to catch up to 14.
>>
>>121083929
Hmm, I'm not very familiar with Seven Seas. I remember they released Blood Alone, that's all I know about them. I'd say:

Vertical > Viz > Dark Horse > Fantagraphics > Drawn & Quarterly > Kodansha > Yen

Nothing against Yen, I just don't care for much of what they put out. I am excited for Prison School from them in July, though.

Hiroaki Samura has actually lauded the English edition of Blade of the Immortal as an "exquisite handling of the series."

Many localized editions have better paper, are larger, hardcovers, omnibus, etc. It's not inherently an inferior product just because it's not in Japanese.

Because I can't read nip and not every thing I want to read have scans available online, or if they do they're often inferior in both translation and quality.

>>121083929
I like the smaller alternative companies like Drawn & Quarterly more since my taste skews more towards what they release. Their production values seem to fall in two extremes, though (ex: Last Gasp's Panorama Island release is excellent, while their Barefoot Gen release is literally in comic sans). A lot of the series that alternative publishers release aren't previously scanlated as well, which is a plus.
Other than Viz and sometimes Vertical I'm not a big fan of the other more mainstream companies. Kodansha is hyperconservative, which is a little disappointing given all the Titanbux they probably have, and Seven Seas and Yen Press have made some pretty suspect licensing choices. I wouldn't be surprised if those two publishers caused another market crash in the distant future.
Dark Horse and Digital Manga are literal cancer, which is too bad because I like a fair amount of what they publish.

They still drop series/put them through literally years of delays, which is frustrating. I'm mostly just mad that they keep falling behind on Kurosagi. Also they still do this shit with the spines from time to time, which drives me nuts.
And if I recall correctly their translation for the Oreimo manga was extremely localized.

Tax money soon. That means shelf cash, and "completing Lupin" cash. Got JoJo preordered and might try out Master Keaton and other random things.

I would become Viz staffers' fucktoy and blowjob machine for free if they would release new versions (preferably omnibus because that's the fastest way) of Keroro / Sgt. Frog that go past volume 21 instead of "digital only, nothing new lol".

>>121083466
I would say "none" because censorship. The 3-in-1s supposedly have a second printing without the censors now? But I wouldn't know where on the internet where to get exactly those printings.

I'm a huge fan of it. I love ghost stories and myths and this one's a cute, funny primer into Japanese Monsters.

It's a bit unusual as it's not manga with panels and you read it from left to right. There are no speech bubbles either.

It's consistently printed in light brown, reddish colours giving it an "antique" look. Also means the tanks are a bit more expensive and higher quality.

tldr; became one of my top favourites.
