So I was walking through the children's area in Barnes and Noble and something caught my eye. Lo and behold, I was happy to discover that Viz(kids) has finally put Pokemon Special Volume 1 into print, with Volume 2 coming in August.

The volumes are normal manga-sized volumes, and can probably be found in the children's comics section if you can't find it in the manga section.

Yep! I was at Borders and picked up a copy of Volume One. I was so happy

They also included the extras and reverted back to traditional Japanese format.

Seeing as manga has pretty much been abolished from where I live, I was going to get my mom to order it from Books-A-Million(she is the one with the credit card, so I'm sort of powerless when it comes to ordering stuff off the internet without one), with the guarantee that I would pay her bak...then the evil called shipping charge showed its ugly head...I wasn't about to pay $12 for it so I'll have to hope I get lucky and find it somewhere >>

I have been waiting for this reprint with anticipation.. And while the style is back to the traditional Japanese format, the chapter names and the character names are still different from the original... (No "VS ____" and Green/Blue are backwards still...)

So it seems like they just took the translation from several years ago and reprinted it..

By the time they get to the Ruby/Sapphire saga though, they will have to come up with all new translations, so hopefully it wont be as cheesy as the ones that came out like, 10 years ago..

I didnt purchase the book, but I looked through it at borders.. Debating on whether or not its worth buying them when i have almost the full Japanese library already.. lol. =3

I consider Blue(rival)/Green(female) to be the right way around for localisation. Why? They correspond with their game counterparts.

I know there are lots of avid Pokéspe fans here, so do any owners of the manga notice any censorship? The first thing I noticed about the cover was "Vizkids". Thankfully the Zelda manga seems to be unharmed but I'd like to know if anything's happened to Pokéspe.
