Glad to see they aren't just pushing naruto as hard anymore, hell they are only like 50~ chapters behind which is pretty fast but they are lacking in other animes

Wow. That's around $300 worth.

I like the idea of catching up to the Japanese release, but I don't really care for One Piece.

This is awesome news, now they are are treating One Piece like they treat Naruto in terms of realese. This is definitely great news for all.

This is how it should be done. Finally. Hmm...I might just start buying the volumes at the start of the Shabondy arc. And then slowly work my way back. Hmm....

I believe they still do. At least, when I looked at volume 20 randomly in a bookstore, that's how it was.

I wish they'd do this with 20th Century Boys and Pluto. At the rate it's going now, Viz will publish the last volume of 20th Century Boys in three and a half years time. The series is over, why do we have to wait? Release em all! And dammit, people have already mentioned this. :P Well - I'm with you! I wish they'd publish Bleach faster as well. They've done this with Naruto and One Piece now, why not Bleach?

They should do that for Hayate the Combat Butler as well.. I'm still waiting for Vol.12 to come out here in North America and they're already on Vol.19 in Japan, if I'm not mistaken.

I've been waiting for this moment. YES YES YES YES YES! Bout time. UGGGH!!!!! WEWT!!!

An yea, wtf aren't they doing this for 20th Century and Pluto! Eh. As for Bleach I wouldn't be in such a rush to collect the tankoban during Hueco Mundo. They kinda run around in a circle for 100+ chapters.

Although I find it complete bullshit since Zoro sounds goods enough for me as Zoro in english, but Zolo would be the correct translation, so yeah...

man well i would be pumped about this IF i cared about one piece. at lest viz is releasing vagabond pretty fast. that's the only manga they have that i care about. viz seems to be finally getting off it's ass and is publishing something OTHER then naruto to bad all the manga they're pushing sucks. i would be happy if they were like dark horse and pushed there good manga like vagabond, Strawberry 100% and Adolf.
to little to late.

While I think this is great, I'm really behind on collecting the manga...and if this is going to be like the current rate of Naruto releases then I'm going to be even more behind D:

About time they paid attention to something else and not just the abomination Naruto has become.

Bleach is garbage and is inferior to One Piece and Naruto. No surprise it comes after the other two.

Hopefully this works out well and leads to doing the same with other titles.

I probably need to catch up on One Piece also eventually.

With how it's going to go with One Piece, I'm betting the other manga will be hold off for awhile. They'll get to 20th Century Boys.

The same would go for other names in other manga that should properly translated in a way that sounds good. Meh, I don't care. As long as One Piece comes out frequently, that's all it matters to me

Great news even though I have not interest in buying One Piece.
I'm pretty sure Viz still uses Zolo, Navy, and probably all the other 4Kids name changes. I can understand them keeping Zolo, but having a character say "The Navy is here" when it clearly says 'Marines' on their hat and jacket is retarded >_>

Well, hopefully they bring out the big collected volumes in the collectors art boxes like they did for the first 21 volumes of Bleach, 27 volumes of Naruto, all of Death Note, etc.

I'll buy them when they bring that out, get it in one hit and have some cool collector's art on my shelf instead of just the spines of the volumes.

That's just an anime. It's the proper translation in English. There's no reference of an "r" sound in the Japanese language. You just want it to be zoro and be happy with it.

And yet Oda draws Zoro's wanted poster with r's. His name is a direct reference to Zorro, so it is actually supposed to be an r.

The reason it was changed to Zolo in the English version (if I recall correctly) was that Disney would sue (or some dumb shit like that).

In any case, as long as it's still ZOLO BERRIES, I'm not paying.

I might buy the series now. Now that I know I'm not stuck on the poor Alabasta arc. I really hated that arc. It didn't have that One Piece spirit!

"l" doesnt exist in japanese, so its technically the wrong translation. and, like slaughterchichi said, its romanized as "zoro" in all the official artwork, just like luffy is "luffy" (even though i guess technically it would be "ruffy")

I hope they do something similar with Bleach. I've just caught up with the manga (volume 27) and it turns out that only up to the point where I dropped the manga a year (or years?) ago has been released in English. There are 39 volumes out in Japan.

If the current pacing remains, it'll take forever to catch-up by buying the manga. Not good.

Then why criticize a series that is more socially acceptable?

Just when I started collecting too. I was really excited until I started reading this thread and realized they make horrible translations. I always thought the first couple of chapters of One Piece was unbearable because of the horrible translations and now I come to find out they're still going to be doing in in the later chapters? uggg

Don't recommend me something that is still publishing, unless its close to being finished. Don't recommend me anything that isn't licensed.
