Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Manga UK Home Release Thread

Just to confirm: there's no green tint (or any other major issue) in these releases, right?

And by the way, do we still get all of the correct terms we used to have on the subtitles before Steve was forced to use the Funi spellings in the Broly movie (e.g. "Freeza" instead of "Frieza")?

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

I also have zero hope* of them announcing something today. I just saw this fantastic thread on Twitter by Deb Aoki and she just said that, unlike in the past, most modern manga contracts demand that the licensee publish the entire series from beginning to end, no matter how unprofitable it ends up b...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

Still, the guys who did the Viz translation are/were pros, so assuming you know better than those guys is... Well... At the very least, while it's definitely perfectly valid to question the decision, I wouldn't call it bad/wrong without being pretty damn sure . And given translation is what these g...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

Hercule is worth noting as censorship, but Djinn-Boo is a correct localisation of Majin Boo's name. Some people pass around nonsense about Majin meaning "Demon man" and Djinn meaning "Genie" and thus the two are vastly different and Viz were dumb, but in actual fact, the way the terms are used in J...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

The art just looks so good at that size, it's like an art book with a story! Wholeheartedly agree, hence me being so distraught at its premature cancellation. I mean, the Japanese edition is fine and all... but at tankoubon size, it's just not the same. Viz effectively just ruined my standards for ...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

I like the Full Colours so much I'm happy to have them even incomplete, they look THAT good! They're also, as far as I'm aware, the ONLY way to buy the manga in the original Shonen Jump size outside of the Digest Editions, which you'd think would be a bigger deal around here! When I was further bac...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

So it seems like this is effectively cancelled, that's a shame but glad I didn't start buying it. What's the best way to own the manga in English with the least (preferably none at all) censoring and no stupid translations (like 'Hercule') to roll my eyes at? The Full Color Edition would have been ...

Yes, includes Dragon Ball, too.


If I'm not mistaken, the Spanish edition is the same size as the Japanese one, right (i.e. tankoubon-sized)? Only the Viz edition got bumped up to Shonen Jump-size, if I have it right.

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

Haven't read any updates from Viz. Well, if you know Spanish then you can order it from Amazon.es, as they've completed their release, iirc. Either that or wait until 2040 and we might get it all in English. I've had time to learn Japanese, buy the original version and nearly finish reading it in t...

Re: General Website Goofs/Errors

In the main Manga Guide page , it says the Full Color release has 20 volumes. Since the Boyhood and Piccolo Daimao arcs have since been published, however, it should be 32 volumes instead. Also, in the Full Color Comics manga guide page , in the Saiyan arc section, it reads: The first volume contain...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

If they didn't announce it today, then it's pretty much officially dead at this point. They've had more than enough time to deliberate. If they didn't announce it this year, then they're not going to do it. It's not dead yet, I don't think. I think Shueisha are probably just dragging their feet on ...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

The wait is most likely down to Shueisha dragging their feet on the licensing. Viz have to license each arc of Full Colour separately, meaning they almost certainly have to re-negotiate everything each time. I mean... if that's the case, then they could have just licensed more than one at the same ...

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

The reason for those high prices in customs here in Portugal isn't the customs themselves (our IVA only goes up to 23%) but the handling fee by the post offices, who steal 12€ each time they fill a form to release stuff from customs (using the documents WE have to give them, and they are extremely ...

I read Brexit may not happen but I don't know how accurate that is. Oh, it's pretty much going to happen.

I have bought Volumes 4&5 of the Freeza arc from a UK online seller. Gotta enjoy UK's prices before customs start destroying our wallets due to Brexit. I know, right?

Re: Viz's Print Edition of the "Full Colour Comics" Discussion

Personally I don't mind because A) The colouring is amazing, and B) It's the only release I know of of the manga at the original Shonen Jump dimensions. Also, I get why some people are holding off on buying the things until we're sure to get a complete release... but if more people think like that ...

I kinda gave up and started reading the Japanese edition. Even if they do announce more, at the pace they're going, we won't be finished until 2025. Where do you get the Japanese editions? From CD Japan . Seems like there are 5 volumes missing right now, but you can always use proxy shipping, or al...
