ok anyone that agrees has to write a letter VIZ thats the people we need to bring pokemon adventures here. So in the letter u need to say like a lot of people will buy the books if they r here and u reall need to the tell them that we are not talking about the one chapter book im talking about The Real Deal the one Singapore are translating. And yes you need to tell them that singapore is translating them so they no where to get them. Now we need a lot of people to do this so they get the point across cause the more people ask the more they see that we want it here. now once you finish ur letter got to the VIZ website and go to contact us page they have the mailing address to them and thats where u need to send it.


SO WHO IS WITH ME???????

You think we didn't try this before?

It doesn't work!

It didn't work, and won't work now!

You also made TWO threads about the same thing. Both deserve closure. It's useless.

maxim, go to dreamland and never dream.

This is a good idea, but ViZ didnt work, We all tried before you joined, it failed, unless we can email chuang yi to ship books to bookstores ex: ViZ(wont happen.),Borders,MangaRus(lol).Barnes and Nobles.

I hate to side with Maxim here, but yes, online petition-like stuff never works. Viz listens to dollars, not letters, and unless you can get at least 10,000 letters with a couple $20 bills attached or something, I highly doubt it will work. Your perpecptions on how the industry is a little simple.

you should sell a bookstore, :D. or go to a bookstore owner and tell them to sell it :).


Though I got to agree even though i'm 12, ViZ will never take it back, all they care is about money.

im not talking about an online petition im talking about everyone that agrees to type up a letter and tell VIZ how people want pokemon adventures in US and when ur done print it and go to VIZ.com and get the mailing address and send ur letter to them. it cant hurt to try even if we fail we still know that we tried and you never no it might work so stop being stubborn and take 15 min out of ur time to write a letter and send it to VIZ and you have to make it convincing. OK

When someone said that it's been done before, they're really serious. I've been here long enough to see 4-5 petitions come and go.

Viz isn't going to waste time reviving an old manga that's two generations behind and behind the profit margin. You do have to realize why a lot of things get discontinued; it's because they don't get enough profit. As of now, Pokemon Special is at a sort of a status where there are a decent amount of readers but not quite enough to actually rake in the money for the company.

Sorry for being the devil's advocate but I'm helping you save some time and energy here. You're better off getting them from Chuang Yi in Singapore or maybe doing a little browsing through the threads in this forum.

oni your only stating the truth. thus we have scans to provide us with the ability to read a great manga otherwise unavailible unless your lucky to have the money to spend 20-30 to import a single volume.

ill give you a prime example that letters dont work and that is Mother3

CALM DOWN!!!! Were all equal fans of the same thing here okay? Don't mean to hurt you're guy's feelings but just calm down... Why won't we just use our energies for more productive things such as actual discussion of the manga. I mean if the anime could have a ton of discussion threads that are always active why not here.

NayrExoto brought up an interesting point.

Do you know the Mother series? It's called Earthbound here. There's a huge fansite for it called Starmen. You know what they tried to do to get Mother 3 here in the US? Everything. Letters, petitions, personally asking the President of Nintendo of America if they even have plans to translate Mother 3, even if it were a DS port (as this was possible with Phoenix Wright ports). Heck, they even did this well made scrap book full of fanmade stuff just to show how dedicated they are. What does Nintendo do? Just ignored them.

So, what do you suppose was the best thing that the fans did in order to get the game? They patched the ROM for the game. Basically, made a fan translation for it. Well, they're still in the process of doing it, but hey, it's a fan and team effort.

Now, as for Pokemon Special, the best thing to do is save your energy and at least contribute fan-translation effort and be patient. You know, if you ask certain people here, they can gladly give you links to scans or something.

Oh and before you start accusing people that they don't read your posts, try to read their posts, too.

Hey hey don't forget that fan-scanlations are for free! But massive publication could as I have said earlier change peoples stereotype that Pokemon is 4kids (pun!)

ok... let's not fight. I have a idea. It is simple, but a long process. We can convince our friends to read more pokespe, and the more readers we have nationwide/worldwide, maybe we don't need to write letters, because if we convince more readers to read this manga, maybe the word will get around to VIZ, and they'll have no choice to publish it because of such a huge fanbase.... mind u it has to be a really big fanbase though, I'm like talking about the size of the 90's pokemon craze.

Simply, just go to Nintendo's English next Expo in somewhere.

Ask them a question about it, and say over 1,000,000 people like it.

lol, why would it be illegal?
i dont know why this site banned the scans, but what about mangafox.com?
an official site with tons of manga!
if it was illegal, the site would have been already screwed up and deleted o.O

Honestly speaking, I don't want them either. And no, I will not write a letter, because:

a.) What's the point, I don't even live in the US... .___.;;

b.) Pokemon Manga in here at this point of time, is like easily available for anyone to buy (or closet read on the bookstore rather). In fact, I wonder why when there's so many stocks of Pokemon Manga, people don't buy them anymore. Lmao, must be because of the circulation of the scans...? XD

c.) Viz only wants money and I THINK it's Chuang-Yi that you should be emailing in order to get Pokemon Manga imported in the US. =P

In simple terms, Email Chuang-Yi, not Viz, at least, you guys might get a chance of importation. ;x

EDIT: Lololol, if you're going to start shouting at me for not reading your posts or whatever, then I'll prove you wrong. I think it's you who should be reading other people's post. ;)

I do sell the Pokemon adventures manga direct from Singapore to you. I've been doing this for 4 years now and have posted books all across the world from Sweden to Mexico.

You can order any amount of books to start but it's highly recommended you order books in large amounts to save on postage.

Each book is about US$9.50 and postage depends on where you are located in the world.

So drop me a PM if you're interested or E-mail me at the address below.

Cheers,

i don't live in the US either, but i came for 2 reasons:

1. i was interested
2. i could see that this is a thread to give you guys manga books so i thought that i maybe could help.

AVe if u dont live in the us y would u come to a thread that said bring pokemon adventures to the US

Grim that what im going to have to do if this doesnt work but im going to be buying from singapore ebay

a.) One, because, I want you to realize the reality of the world, especially how Viz is profit oriented, and if this is such the case, they won't go back to something they never gained profits from in the first place. I'm talking about Pokemon Adventures.

b.) Your only other option is Chuang-Yi, because they're the ones who's currently translating the manga. It's them or nothing, my dear. =P

c.) Their website is this: http://www.chuangyi.com.sg/

d.) Because I was also interested and I want US people to get the real thing... at a more reasonable price... without Ebay or something. D:

what if you send a letter to VIZ, and you get no replie and no books...
then you stay active on the community, and then some new guy makes a thread just like this, what would you do?
join him and try it again? or not join and tell him what we told you?

nayr its a typo and hoenn yes i would try it again and i wouldnt put people down like u guys r and so what is they dont do nothing the first time u send them something u can always try again and if i didnt feel like doing it again i wouldnt tell the person not to do i would say "i tried it but it didnt work hopefully u have some luck with it" not tell them o its not going to work does waste ur time

This doesn't have much potential at all, I'm sorry to say. I wholeheartedly agree with you in the fact that the manga should be shipped to the U.S., but it'll never happen. I myself am sick of paying $20 for one book, but Viz will most likely just ignore the letters and such. They tried it once in the U.S., it failed, burned a hole in their pockets, and then the manga became exclusive to Singapore. That's it. There are about a few hundred more readers now than there were then, but I'm sure they wouldn't want to waste more money for such a risk, no? That's all. Try if you want, but you ain't getting much success.
