But the raws would add so much suspense that it'd be WAY too nerve racking.. I mean, I can tell a little from the kanji with my Chinese dictionary right next to me, but we could end up thinking entirely the wrong thing.. unsure.gif

One of you'd people must do the honor of translating for us, if that happens. laugh.gif

The real thing can be gotten through Amazon.co.jp, or global.yesasia.com, or any of your specialist manga import store... so what's the problem?

Or knows Japanese tongue.gif
Argh... I hope I'll be able to get scanlations from somewhere...
urm but anyway... it seems quite sure now that FMA is going to be published by Viz... I don't know if it's that bad. I have read Viz manga and the only thing that really bugged me was how they "flipped" it, but now they don't do that anymore(I think tongue.gif ) Oh and they don't translate possible name suffixes tongue.gif I don't like that either.
It's coming out in June? Noooooo! I have to wait so long!
That's the most annoying thing tongue.gif .

Screw it, I'm just downloading all the scanlates I can get my grubby hands on, before Viz tells these guys to take them down. That should last me for a while.

Broadband connection + computer with way too much free space on its hands = hoarding just because I can.

could scans of the originals still be posted, in that case? at least for those of us who can speak japanese, can't we at least be humored with the real thing if a translation can no longer be provided?

mean?

Do you guys want the translated version or don't you?
- If yes, then buy it when it starts coming out in June.

You want the 'real thing' or don't you?
- If yes, then buy it via online or local manga stores.

You guys here sure sound very contradictory to what you want...

Or is the true answer...

this sucks. america sucks. mad.gif


i agree with tokage, could the raws still be posted? with enough time and my dictionary i can figure out at least the gist of the dialogue. usually i can find scanned raws and summerwolf's translations on the lj fma community, but it'd be nice to have the raws on the site too smile.gif

"Screw Arakawa and Square Enix, we want them slaving away, drawing comics for us for free!!! ph34r.gif

if local manga stores actually sold the manga for the price that is listed on the back of the manga (i.e. 390 in most cases, which is equivalent to approximately $4.00 US currency), then i *would* buy from them... but they scalp the hell out of them. $5 i could live with, but a lot of these local specialty stores charge $8-$10 for a $4 manga, and that's just lousy on so many levels. as for buying online...uhm, have you checked out shipping charges from japan lately?? it costs more to ship the damn things than the books cost themselves!

i don't live in japan, but i can speak/read japanese, so if someone can provide a scan of the manga that i WOULD buy if it didn't cost three times as much to own if you happen to live in america, i will be satisfied. as for viz and their translations, they can suck my nose, because if they do to hagaren what they have done to naruto and inuyasha, there is no hope, all is lost, and it is best to repent now...

and i resent that 'true answer' you suggested. i have a lot of respect for manga artists, i know what a difficult and time-consuming art it is, i've done several of my own, TYVM... if i lived in japan or visited more often, i would be more than happy to support arakawa-sensei and square enix, but since i don't and can;t afford to, i'm not going to pay double or triple to get something sent to me when i can get a perfectly good electronic version for free. ;p

Jeez guest, I don't think I sounded contradictory. I wrote that the most annoying thing is to wait until June. I guess that shows that I'm buying the manga? tongue.gif
And about buying online. Not everyone can do it. And then the shipping costs.. which were already mentioned.
And also, I appreciate the work of the manga artists too. It's true that I like to read what I can without spending a lot of my money, but if I can't afford it, I can't. Then I can't read it. Some manga I just love so I don't mind spending money on them. Some I love so much that I don't mind spending money on them even if I can read it free (like getting it from the library or from a friend) Now that's a lot wink.gif.

Since there has been so much Viz bashing as of late, I decided to go to the local Barnes and Noble and see for myself what was up with their translations.

[blue enters manga section, picks up Naruto vol. 1
...blue skims until she comes across..
1.Random ref. to American Culture...
Blue then continues skimming,slightly peeved, until she comes across Naruto's first Kage Bunshin no Jutsu but instead sees...

2."The Art of the Doppelganger"

Nani??blink.gif blink.gif blink.gif dry.gif dry.gif mad.gif mad.gif
[blue promptly exits store, swearing never to touch Viz again...]

Proceeds to kinokuniya to load up on FMAvolumes, and buys a HUGE Japanese Kanji dictionary.

They buthered Naruto that's for sure. Why can't they just leave it as it is?

because they're meddling, money-grubbing bastards who figure if they dumb it down enough to sell the series to 10-year-olds who can whine and cry and throw temper tantrums in the bookstore until mummy and daddy buy it for them to shut them up...then why not destroy a beautiful artform that isn't intended for america's spoiled, monetarily overindulged, poor little selfish latchkey rich kids? dry.gif
