    **General complaint of One Piece being ignored for Naruto and Bleach**

    I don't know, the latest Jump was released and the old thread was all over that before I could get over there...

    I sort of think Viz could yunno start going towards the Funi's path, once again calling Zoro "Zoro" and lay off the pseudo-swearing once in a while. Perhaps up One Piece a chapter once in a while...

    *face-palm* The other thread is no where near full. There's already a set limit of posts for every thread, and until that thread reaches to that point, this shouldn't be in existance.

    the fact that I feel amazed when it comes out 2 months after the last volume and that the next volume doesn't come out until february kind of pisses me off. Seriously, it shouldn't take 4 months to translate a volume.

    I'm sure it only takes them a few weeks to translate an entire volume. It just takes that long to publish all the chapters in the magazine. They probably have all the initial copies of the Graphic Novels ready to ship a month before they're actually released.

    Picked up Volume 19 the other day. I just find it ironic that it comes with a Bleach sticker. I didn't know that that Slam Dunk was selling better than One Piece either.

    Seems like Viz is really eager to get to where Japan is.

    ^probably, it's their cash cow, thanks to CN and viz's good advertisement.

    Even when 4kids had one piece, they didn't advertise when they released crap. So that would probably explain all the poor sales and what not.

    One piece needs advertising, I'm quite sure there are STILL people who don't know funimation dubs one piece now. I'm just saying, a bigger anime fanbase might add to manga sales.

    They do. I actually remember finding volume 15 a month before it was supposed to come out... And that was in an import-store in NORWAY. I still don't understand how they managed to get it so early, considering how they seem to take several months to get just about anything else.

    Well, I picked up volume 19. It seems that they're now using 'crap' as a substitute for 'damn'. Kinda odd. I do like how Viz has started the habit of putting one of (or in this case the only) the volume's colorspreads on the back cover so that we can see them in all their colorful glory.

    They did that in Little Garden too. Sanji said "Welcome to the Resturant le'Crap" or something like that.

    I was actually referring to a line by some random Alabastan during the buring of Nanohana. Out of nowhere came a ''That crap king!''

    gaddamnit - I always forget I don't have my page count on default.

    @ontopic: Man, that line sounds lame - and VIZ has come up with some pretty lame sideline lines.

    I needs to return my Fairy Tail (accidentally bought one I already had) volume for Volume 19. I hate our new Borders though.

    Got the volume myself a few hours after you mentioned that. Yeah, that line did sound kinda lame.

    At the same time, I also picked up D.Gray-man volume 3, and... Damn, Viz's quality control was bad. If I'd gotten a dollar for every time they misspelled someone's name in it, then I would propably be able to afford another book at the same time. Like, do they have some sort of policy saying that "Every character-name must be spelled wrong at least once" or something? (Specifically, they kept switching back and forth between "Lenalee" and "Linali", and they also said "Rabi" in one of the question-corners. It was the first printing, though, so maybe the later ones aren't quite as inconsistent.)

    Their Fullmetal Alchemist drives me up the wall because they can't seem to just stick with a name. For example, they started out using Kimbley, then Kimble, then Kimbly, and now they seemed to have finally settled on FUNImation's Kimblee. They've also changed Ling to Lin, Mei to May, Olivia to Olivier, and Dublith to something like Dabriss. Not to mention starting out with Ishval then changing it to the more common but most likely erronemous Ishbal two volumes later.

    I read on Wikipedia once that Viz was extremely inconsistent with the names in the early volumes of D. Gray-man, but around the middle of the series (so volume 6 or 7, I guess) they settled on names. If you'd gotten a more recent printing, it probably would have been consistent, as you said. And names in D. Gray-man are hard because sometimes Hoshino picks what seem like the stupidest Romanizations possible.

    It's just crowded and awful. It recently moved to the mall, and it used to be in a nice, big, spacious building with two floors. Two steps into the new place, and I sweat from all the stored body heat because it's so congested. I hate it.

    Manga selection is the same so far as I can tell, but that doesn't make up for the horrible new location.
