Some Mangas...Should Just Get Translated...Others...
« on: October 10, 2005, 09:18:46 AM »

Hello again fellow otakus! Or if you are too sensitive about being called an otaku...uh...Well, sucks for you! Anyway, has there ever been a manga you just absolutely wanted translated into English (or for any other language I guess...). For me, that would be Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei!
 Since I spend plenty of time at Borders, I can always read up on newly released mangas, however, there are just some that I rather keep on a distant country, far, far away. No, not Japan... But! Then there are those that I wish were a little closer to a book store near you! ...Please! If you share the same feelings, post! Post the manga you want to be translated into English!

 And to end this post with a sorta inside joke.

Most of Iisaka Yukako's works. Especially her early anthrologies... I own one but its too much of a pain to translate it myself... >.> Plus I suspect its tied to other related volumes in some way... (separate anthrologies...not series...)

I know there are some that I think are a waste of money to import but I can't remember titles at this moment... >.>

Inside joke? O.o? Why? I think I'll rebel.... XD

I'd like to see more manga translated into german....for no reason except that it would be entertaining. You know, I found a german manga-type book at a used book store. It was awesome! I should of bought it.

I'd sure like to see Lum *re-translated* with the Japanese cultural references. Or the return of Rumiko Theatre. IMO, Rumiko Takahashi's drama is *extremely* good, but she essentially has to compete against herself. At least Mermaid's Saga (?) is available. HIGHLY recommended, if you like drama and horror. (Besides, it's only four volumes and is a short series, iirc.)

I'd like to see Akemi's Prince Charming & Breakfast Club series translated... but they've already gone and made my entire freaking year by putting out (err, well, it'll be out super soon, anyways, I think...) Earthian.

Yes.  Oh lord yes.  Earthian in English, with all of that lovely Yun Kouga gorgeousness that is so much prettier than what you get in the anime.

Mmmm.

SO.  MUCH.  LOVE.

X3

I'd also like to see more Higuri You!  Yeah!!!  Gorgeous Carat and Seimaden are being released, but man... I really want to see the one she did with Sakura Kai, uhh... Tenshi no Bara, I believe it's called, translated.  Ludwig and Lost Angel would be nice, too.  >.>

I want Kurosagi Delivery Service of Corpse and Shigeshoushi translated so I have SOMEONE to rant about it with. (Thankfully project Omanga people translated MPD Psycho so I had people to rant with..but I do with they had it at borders or something so that there would be more people who know of it)

 I happen to be a big fan of the writer Ootsuki Eishi and that's the main reason why I want KDSoC and MPD P. translated into books >_< He's a good writer...but the main problem being they're rather bloody and you probably won't be able to read em at the store or something >_<

The Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu manga should be licensed already, dammit.

Oh, and Kanon and AIR, too. Moreso AIR, because it has quite the following; I'd suspect even moreso than Kanon.</dork>
