This is torture! Wrrryyyyy?!  
Why is Viz Media making us wait 3 months between each U.S. release of the manga? That is evil.

I got all excited last night and have been excited up until about 5 minutes ago... I went to Viz' site for the new releases and THOUGHT I was reading that vol. 8 comes out on Jun 18. It actually comes out Jul 18th but me and my sleep deprived eyes thought we saw Jun.

But why so long between each release?

They started releasing those in books in 2001 or 2002. America started releasing the English version in May 2005.

If anything, we're going far too fast. :B

And the French are going warp speed too. I think the French version of the manga debuted Sept 2005 and they'll be releasing Vol 8 in Sept 2006 and Vol 9 in November. I think Detective Conan, French publisher KANA releases 2 volumes per 3-4 months. (The two volumes are relased the same month, same day)

I think it's better if the translating companies are about 3-5 volumes behind the original releases. Unless the series is done then that's different.


(Val!)

Eep! What is with these speedy publications? o.O
But hey, means more money to waste my money on when I go to France to study. XD

I personally think that's also for the best to keep that small between the two in case things happen in Japan. As for finished series...I'll have to agree with it somewhat since there's Ranma 1/2 which Viz has been doing for 13 years and are finally going to finish probably this year. XD

(Yeah? :D)
