    They don't add chapters from what I know... got any examples? All I've seen is them chopping up certain chapters and moving some pages into other chapters for things to flow better, as well as some minor redrawings.

    But yeah, this is a pretty terrible way to release the series. Presumably Chuang Yi will release the volumes properly, though.
    So.

    Well they do add stuff like giving an ending to the Emerald chapter or changing the ending of the DP chapter greatly

    I feel like Reburst has the best chances of getting picked up next.
    It's so weird that, with all the series out there, we don't get more. DPA was a crapshoot, and I think it paid off. It seems to be more popular outside Japan than in! You'd think Viz would take some lessons from that, at least.

    If anything

    The Hero of Thunder and Fire and ReBURST are the most likely to come out in the US

    Kiwamero is low due to me doubting Viz wants to release a walkthrough series, Pocket Monsters will never come out in the US unless they pull a Adventures (never happening), and Meetings with the Legends is a one shot, so nope

    They do one-shots though. They did Ginji's Rescue Team, and all the movie comics are basically standalones. Surprised they didn't pick up the Satoshi and Hikari comic (I'm unsure of the title), or Golden Boys, or even some of the 4-komas.

    Legendary Encounters is only 33 pages, though. The one-shots Viz has released in the past have all been significantly longer.

    As far as I know Viz is perfectly aware of different versions for magazine and volume releases, I remember hearing that Naruto and Bleach both have the Japanese magazine versions used for the English magazine version, and the Japanese volume version used for the English volume version. Of course they then go and edit the magazine version even more, but eh...

    i always wondered if DPA! and Ginji's Rescue Team were VIZ testing the market for interest in Pokémon manga, potentially leading up to the rerelease of Adventures. not sure how that makes sense, but eh.

    I'm assuming *whispers*y'know...*whispers*.

    Then again, do *whispers*y'know*whispers* groups actually do it as the magazine prints them, or wait for volumes? I dunno, as I'm a good boy.

    Either that, or they mean Adventures as a whole.

    You guys are toeing the line, you know. Besides, there ARE people outside Japan who can read Japanese, and these magazines ARE carried at some stores outside Japan. I'm in Oregon, US, and I can buy them at Kinokuniya. It's entirely possible to read Special and other comics before they get translated without resorting to illegal means.
