Psychic Power Nanaki (I was able to get vol 1 through the library, but that was all they had)
Shout Out Loud! (again, first three are in my library system, but then they leave off!)
Rhysmyth (which happens to be by an LT author)
and so many others!
What's on your wishlist?
Boys over Flowers
Dragon Ball Z
From Far Away
Too many to name...
I'd like to add to my Tarot Cafe series, xxxHolic, Aqua, and Snow Drop (technically a Manwha I know).
What i'd really like is the continuation of the translated volumes of E'S, Satoru Yuiga. Which stalled at vol.4 i think, because Broccoli Books went under :(
Others i'd like are:
Himitsu~ Top Secret
Tokyo Crazy Paradise
to name but a few.
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle vol. 23
The entire set of B.O.D.Y. (I currently only own volume 2)
Totally Captivated vols 4 through 6 (I think that is all that is out)
Nabari No Ou
Black Knight vol. 4
Silver Diamond volume 4
Innocent Bird vol. 3
I'm planning in advance and hoping to get gift certs for Christmas :-)
TokyoPop seems to be pulling its "we're cancelling this but we don't want to admit it so we'll push the release date back into next year" thing with Silver Diamond, unfortunately. Volume 5 was originally due out this month or next, I believe, and now it has vanished from the TokyoPop site and amazon has it due out next March. Given that volume 4 came out in April 2009, volume 5 coming out in March 2010 is more than a little suspicious.
And given that we're 14 volumes behind Japan already... :/
I hate it when they drop series :(
that not good. I guess I'll have to check the upcoming volumes of the series that I'm following. I hope that there won't be any problems.
There was also the Shojo Beat thing. They stopped publishing the magazine. It's really too bad.
do u guys have any suggestions 4 me
(I assume that you are young enough to be eligible for a library card.)
Most libraries now have a decent collection all-ages manga.
Off course you don't own the manga, but at least you get a chance to read them and show your parents that most manga is quite innocent.
and yes i do have a library card
You don't read ARIA, then? TokyoPop's volume 5 had some really awkward translations. I was really frustrated when I got my volume and left a nice rant in place of a proper review here on LT (especially comparing it to the nice quality of the first three - which, I'm thinking now, they only did in order to get people to buy them again if they already had the ADV versions). They also did a really crap job on translating originally color images to black and white (honestly, a bit of time with the Levels in Photoshop could've fixed it), and they ended up muddy and just not the same quality as the rest of the art (though that's possibly in the original tanks, too - I'm not sure if they kept the color pages from Comic Blade). On the other hand, the ARIA scanlation team came from 4chan and appear to have done a really good job on it, going by what they've done for Amanchu!, so they probably don't count as 'crappy scanlations'.
I'm not saying that scanlations are always better than what the licensers do, but there are plenty of cases where the legal stuff is a pale comparison to the fans'.
(However, I did laugh and laugh at a scanlation the other day, where there was a translator comment along the lines of "I don't know what old women have to do with playing card games, but that's the literal translation..." when the line was translated as "I guess I have the Old Maid's skill!" - for the record, that one isn't licensed in English.)
