Various folks are letting us know that the Portuguese re-release of the Dragon Ball manga (in its original tankōbon form) has been canceled by Edições Asa as it approaches Volume 18 (about midway into the Saiyan arc), apparently due to poor sales and fan support.
The manga was originally released in Portugal by Planeta DeAgostini and was a re-translation of the Spanish translation — this new release, originally announced back in October 2010, promised to be of higher quality, albeit (seemingly) mostly re-translated itself from Viz’s English translation.
For those Portuguese fans left out in the cold, if your Spanish is up to snuff, their kanzenban release wrapped up back in 2007 and is pretty cheap these days.
In portugal they talk in portuguese not spanish 😯 🙄
Which is precisely why it says “if your Spanish is up to snuff”. I don’t see the issue.
