I was reading through my little cousins copy of Nick Magazine and... Pokemon Special is in there! :D
When I saw it, I just thought: MUST SCAN!
I'll make him vote for Pokespe. I even bubbled it in for the little brat. xD
Heres the page.
BTW: They forgot a dot for Calvin and Hobbes. D8

so if according to that scan how would we get a 25 book collection if chosen. last time i check it wasn't sold in the states(obviousely my choice is pokemon special.)?

They do sell Pokespecial in USA, but only like first few volumes. They stopped because sales weren't so good.

Anyway, I hope Pokespecial sales will go up, and maybe, maybe, they'll start trying to translate again. Maybe test the waters with the Yellow series again and then try Volume 8?

I hate that it seems people love Naruto so much. It's one of those deflated things that aren't so great yet still has a huge fandom. I read Naruto, but its not OMG THE BEST MANGAIN TEH WORLD!!!111ONE. You get sick of it after awhile.
I so hope Pokemon Special will win. If it does, maybe I can buy the manga at a regular bookstore!
Who knows?
Off-topic: Another example is Twilight. I read Twilight, its just another book to me. But everybody is venerating it to make it seem like the best book ever. -.- And everyone loves Edward, but IMO, Jaspers better. xD

Oh great goodness, this is our chance, people! If PokeSpecial can get enough exposure in Nick magazine..... If we play our cards right.... POKESPECIAL CAN TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!! Now, all we have to do is hack into Nick magazine's database, and kidnap all of it's subcribers, and force them to vote for PokeSpecial.... and that's just Step One.

Jasper doesn't get any attention whatsoever, which kinda bugs me. I really started to like him after he went berserk after seeing Bella bleed. :)
I love Jacob! But, I thought, at first, that Bella seemed a bit cougarish when flirting w/ him in Twilight.

Aw, it's okay.

You would only get up to volume 7, but I would totally do it. Chances are pretty slim, though...(sorry, I get negative. I'm half pessimist) Anyway, I hope that we can vote online. If everybody votes, then maybe Pokespecial will stand a small chance against that stupid Naruto....(no offense to Naruto fans)

Anyway, I think that PokeSpecial deserves some recognition around the world. It's a decent comic that you could take sometime to read. Of course, it might not get as much votes as Naruto because the comic is good as well and it's more well known now.

Hey, there's a lot of Pokecommunityans (my own word. xD) that like Pokespecial, maybe we can all form and crush those little kids who only like Naruto and think they're anime fans and they only watch one dubbed anime. -.-'

You know, I bet there are people out there who think that the Pokespecial is the same thing as the pokemon anime, which it's COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

I know what you mean, if only the anime counterpart would be like pokespecial. As far as i know is pokemon the only anime that doesnt go the plotline like the manga, thats so disapointing...

I do. I joined there before I joined here, in October 2006. I joined here in January 2007. But I haven't been on there in forever.....

BTW, the Pokemon anime BARELY has a plot. What is a pokemon master, anyway?

@Mitja K; Sorry, even if I don't like Naruto AT ALL, I shouldn't bash it. I LOVE Inuyasha, which brings me to part of why I don't go on serebii forums anymore. I was on an Inuyasha thread, and some RUDE people bashed the living daylights out of me.

Pokemon Special deserves to be recognized. I like these manga and could not stop reading it. Thoses other mangas are well known by because they have anime version of them. Most people do not even read manga, but rather watch only the anime that is based off of them. Hardly anyone knows about the Pokemon Special because their is no anime version of it and they sell the manga in very few countries in the world. If they sell it in more countries then it might be more noteable by people who read manga. Also I hate when people say that Pokemon is just for children, which is said by Pokemon Haters. I mean depending on what type of Pokemon canon you referring to the age group can vary.

I agree with you 10000000%. Pokespecial totally deserves to be recognized. Naruto's okay, but it just gets way to much attention for its own good. Pokespecials good too, even better (IMO) and nobody knows about it. -.-' We have a perfectly good chance to sortof "advertise" Pokespecial for free, and we can do it by, oh, I don't know...

I don't hate everyone on SerebiiForums, I have my awesome friend Tricia there, but people are generally MUCH nicer here on PC.

They sound cooler only because you don't understand it. There are bad voices in the Raws of some shows. Spike from Cowboy Bebop comes to mind; the dub beat this just for that reason.


This only proves we need to go back to Pocket Monsters' Rika-sung traditionally guitar-based themes (OK! comes to mind). None of these instruments and KIDS SCREAMING (which I actually loathed about Advance Battle's themes).
Of course (http://www.serebiiforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=15) they are (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=190161). Note there are two seperate links.

Anyway, I don't see why it winning a Nick award is anything special. It doesn't really get anything other than an award that means nothing really.

2. What people are trying to say is that Pokespecial is recognized, sales will go up, thus improving the situation.
3. I personally think that the early chibi style is cute, but I like the later styles even better.

I know what you meant. But it gets tiring that people refer to PokéSpecial as the manga.
2. What people are trying to say is that Pokespecial is recognized, sales will go up, thus improving the situation.
I'm sorry but I don't think that copies from the late-90s and early-2000s will automatically start selling again if it wins this contest. I also doubt that parents will import these comics for their children to inevitably mess up and leave it everywhere.
3. I personally think that the early chibi style is cute, but I like the later styles even better.
The early style made everything look distorted IMO. But I do enjoy the later style much more.

I know I seem pessimistic. But that's how I see it[#2].

Yay, I voted. I don't know how it'll make a difference, but at least I did something for this great manga. :P
Though I voted randomly for the other categories, lol. I have no idea at all about western comics, really.

As for your thread in SPPf, I think the mod just had no idea about what s/he did. All the posts looks fine for me, actually.
SPPf isn't such a bad place. It's just bigger than PC. Bigger community = More jerks.

Seeing that there isn't a the pokémon manga. Yes, I do. What other reason would I post in this part of the forum. All I'm saying is that the award is just from Nick Magazine.

Even though I would like better drawings. :P

Well yeah it is Nick Magazine...But some type of recognition would be nice....Because the sad thing is...every time I go to PC and somebody sees me, It's always with the mocking of the 1st Anime Season and "You wanna be a PM Master?" @_@ But it's still surprising everytime I find out that the Game is still played a lot in HS.

Anyways the PokeSpe manga needs more advertising and linking to Mangafox XD since the kiddie anime stereotype is stuck with the Pokemon Franchise...

The art is fine for me though...I actually like it =P But it's your taste though. ^__^

Exactly. Ash Ketchup makes the whole Pokemon franchise seem kiddie and stupid. I love the Pokespecial art, the chibi one was cute, but I really like the later styles. I can't choose.
I'm on Serebii too. I go on PC more, after that though.


Off-topic...@ Mileyangel, I know how you feel. But, I have pale skin and brown hair, so people think I'm "emo". I hate it. Especially when I wear black. I look like such an outcast with my hyper, bright colour wearing friends. xD
