    Default Do you suppose Viz will release, or rerelease, other manga?

    They rereleased Special, and have released the Mystery Dungeon manga along with movie manga.

    They have released "old" manga, as seen with The Legend Of Zelda series.

    Special is the most popular of the manga, and has a large fanbase, so it makes sense they'd translate it. But what about other manga? They translated other Pokemon manga, so it isn't a matter of popularity.

    Though with the other manga, I suppose you could say they released them because they were close to the games release timings. It would be no use releasing, say, Golden Boys after HGSS came out.

    Then again, look at the Zelda manga. OOT came out over ten years ago yet they released it.

    I'd say it's more possible they'd release new manga and rerelease out of print manga, rather then license and release older manga.

    They probably wouldn't release it knowing that Golden Boys never finished (such a shame)

    But I'd like it if they release Pokemon 7 and Pocket Monsters

    GB did finish, did it not? It had an ending. A mediocre one, but an ending.

    I thought Pocket Monsters was the most popular manga? Well, in Japan, anyway.

    Not at all. Pokespe is. You rarely hear of PM really.

    It's supposed to have a pretty devoted Japanese following, though.

    I'd like to see Pokémon 7 for sure, and a rerelease of Magical Pokémon Journey would be fun, though I'm not certain how likely any rereleases are. Yes, they released Adventures and Zelda, but Adventures is insanely popular and Zelda fans have been lusting after the mangas for years. :P

    At any rate, I keep spamming their surveys with requests for more Pokémon manga. I still swear up and down that the rereleases of Adventures were helped because me and my bf filled in a million surveys asking for it. :B

    I guess that's less surprising than it ought to be. PokeSpe is cool, but I do hope they release more series here in the states. I'd like a re-release of the Electric Tales of Pikachu, personally, since I don't have a copy of that and I don't feel like hunting it down.

    It's awfully hard to find considering how popular it seemed to be back in the day. I did find the first volume at a comic shop in my city fairly recently, but that was like a once in a lifetime thing XD

    I hope they re-release Electric Tale. Although it would probably be even MORE censored.

    That'd be great, but who really knows what they will or won't release? :0

    Back when the second printing of Adventures was starting out, I was somewhat hopeful for a similar treatment for Electric Tale and MPJ, considering those three series were the "Big Three" back during Viz's first stab at releasing Pokémon manga and so already have translations available. Of course, yeah, considering the removal of Green's Poké Boobs, if that did happen, I don't think Electric Tale wouldn't be faced with the possibility of heavy censorship again. (Really could never seem them bringing over Misty's Gym Leader outfit and Jessie's... rockets.) Also curious at to how they wouuld handle subjects in MPJ like public drunkenness (of Pokémon, no less) and homosexuality.

    But yeeeeeah the forseeable forecast is nothing but Adventures. Which is much better than nothing, at least, so we can be thankful for that.

    I personally don't think they will, but... did they handle Golden Boys? If so, I'd certainly like to have it back, so I could actually, you know, read it *has never*

    Amazon and eBay are your friends.

    They never released GB. GB was only released in Japan and Singapore.

    They already took care of those in the first translation.
