You make it sound like such a wholesome series.
>>
>>162104566
for easy comparison from the last thread
>>
>>162104566
It is, actually. The lewdness seems logical (in universe), funny and serves to push the story forward.
>>
I'm guessing it's been done for licensing reasons or something, but I can't hope but wonder if they couldn't come up with something better, like something that'd get across the point of the series more
>>
Would've "Grand Blue Diving" been better?
>>
What does licensed digitally mean ?
>>
>>162105208
Licensed for digital release. You'll be able to buy it.
>>
>>162105025
What does Grand Blue have to do with diving?

>The sound effects are replaced in the scanlations, but not in the official version.

>>162105208
scanlations will be dead
>>
>>162105833
Not this time, Helvetica confirmed that they are not gonna stop translating Grand Blue
>>
>>162104566
And nothing of value was lost
>>
>>162105855
Thank god.
>>
>>162105208
It means it will be DMCA'd on sites like Batoto
>>
>>162105833
Oh, fuck off, everytime something is licensed you cry that it's over, that the translations will die, and everytime the translations continue.
>>
>>162105525
Well, it is the name of the shop. I guess the shop name was going for something similar to "the Great Blue Sea"
>>
>>162105927
eh, diddly shit.Helvetica scans has a perfectly good reader, so I'm fine with that.

I honestly don't get some people's fixation/always sticking to batoto
>>
>>162105855
based Helvetica

will official translators ever stop being btfo?
>>
>>162106261
Yeah, my internet is nowhere near slow, and I can keep up at onlines games just fine, but everytime I got to batoto the page takes 10 seconds to load.
>>
>>162106261
It's a pain in the ass checking scanlation's sites, it's easier having all of them in one.
>>
>>162106261
mangatraders died again so its one of the only decent reader sites now. unfortunately its still run by fujoshits that like to remove things that are serialized or have funny memes in the credits page
>>
Am I the only one who still uses goddess?
>>
Great news. You can buy it on 12th Sep.
>>
>>162106640
Of course not.
>>
>>162106564
>mangatraders died again so its one of the only decent reader sites now.
isn't it one of the crappier reader sites though? Someone just said it's handy for keeping up with updates, but what else does it actually have going for it?
>>
>>162106873

>>162107245
mangatraders wasn't that good of a reader site but they had everything other sites didn't because of the serialization jew

its one of the only sites that didn't remove things for retarded reasons too (like poor rapemanscans)

>buying a shitty english translated version and giving money to the weajews from companies like VIZ instead of importing a copy from japan.

>>162106261
I use kissmanga, mainly because a lot of batoto's shit has been DMCA'd. But every reader has its share of problems.

people like you make me sick
>>
>Basic spelling mistake in the first chapter of the official release
Not looking good.
>>
>>162107824
Nigga are you legitimately this dumb? Viz is owned wholly by Shueisha.
>>
>>162107617
>Not supporting the author

How much did they pay you to shill here?

>>

>he thinks licenses support the author
don't they?
>>
>>162109326
It takes many years to read JP fluently though, and many people actually study with comparing raws with scanlations.
>>
>>162106036
>you cry
Im not crying and its the first time i said this.
>>
>>162104246
Why would they add dreaming?
What was wrong with Grand Blue?
Do americans do things like that often?
>>
>>162112707
They do that so your first google result is the licensed release, and not the scans.
>>
>>162107617
>not buying japanese version to really support the author
Why would you don't play the author the full price and pay shitty translators instead when there are free translation available?
>>
>>162107858
How does mangapark ticke your fancy? I find it quite easy to use for series not on batoto.
>>
>>162109533
Licenses support the publisher, unless the series is a one-piece level of big hit no one care about the author.
>>
It's the sequel
>>
>>162107617
Just buy the original volumes, print the helvetica version and cut and paste the speech bubbles into the tanks.
>>
>>162108040
>consuming media in a language you can't understand without subtitles or third party translations

I really hope you don't do this
>>
>>162114937
Mangapark happens to have watermarks all over the place, so I prefer Kiss that are relatively clean (save for series that only Mangastream is translating)
>>
>>162114937
>>162115338
Mangapark are basically another one of NOEZ's reskins of Mangafox/mangahere
>>
>>162115338
>watermarks all over the place
You mean the ones from other sites? Most of the popular series have like 3 versions and I assure you that at least one of them doesn't have watermarks.
>>
>>162106873
I will only buy it if it gets physical version
>>
>digital
into the trash. physical or bust
>>
>>162107824
VIZ is a subsidiary of Shueisha. If you wanna complain about shitty middlemen, complain about Yen Press or something.
>>
Why can't all western publishers be like Vertical?
>>
>>162118420
you mean shit?
>>
>>162118420
so I read that Vertical have the licence for Watashi no Shounen
Vertical are owned by Kodansha, the magazine it runs in is owned by Futabasha which I thought were connected to Shueisha somehow?
>>
>>162118420
why can't all western publishers just die?
>>
>>162118670
Futabasha isn't part of Hitotsubashi Group and isn't related to Shueisha. Vertical is only partially owned by Kodansha and acts more or less independently
>>
>>162119197
Thank you, I must have misread something somewhere.
>>
>>162104246
Why?
>>
>>162121055
Kodansha US has been shitting out a lot of manga in a digital format lately
>>
>>162104246
okay
