    Default Diamond and Pearl Adventure!

    So I finally got my copy, and it's great. I'm not familiar with the Japanese version so I can't comment on any translation hiccups, but everything seems to flow nicely.

    The names are the same--Hareta, Mitsumi, and Jun.

    The art is really good, showing a lot of emotion on even an Onix.

    There's three parts I'm wondering how they got past with an A rating--
    -Hareta hits a guy in the crotch with a pokeball, causing Piplup to materalize between the guy's legs
    -Hareta bites a Galactic goon on the ass. This goon is shown with a swelled ass later on.
    -Piplup repeatedly pecks Gardenia's butt.
    And while it's all hilarious, I can't help but wonder what Viz would have done if it were, say, Toshihiro Ono drawing it.

    Best line in the book--
    "I'm fine with being stupid!"--Hareta

    Can you set it up so someone in the states can buy it for you?

    Also, can you not bring that up in every thread about this release?

    I don't know anyone from states. My only relation to United States is that I speak English.

    It's subliminal advertising!

    Lol, just kidding. I think I'll stop soon. But, I think you know the feeling, when something new and cool is being released and you can't get it. This feeling really sucks.

    I think the thing about it being allowed now is that times have changed. I mean, remember back when all sorts of things were censored in anime/manga back in, let's say, 2000? Nowadays, stuff like 'Naruto' gets away with curses, blood, and dirty jokes on primetime TV.

    I have a question about the manga. I know that Hareta is looking for Dialga
    but does anyone earn badges at gyms? Because I know that the Sinnoh leaders are in it, but I'm not sure what role they play in it.

    It's odd they kept their names. Everyone else in the manga usually get a name change.

    The gym Leaders are treated the same way as the Frontier Brains were in Emerald Challenge.

    A few of them got a dedicated chapter...namely Roark and Gardenia so far...then Wake and Fantina got a few panels showing Hareta with their respective badge.

    At the end of volume 2 and the beginning of volume 3, Hareta is rescued by Byron.

    So in other words Hareta does earn badges.

    ...I forgot about that.

    Yes, he earns badges. And Jun has one badge.

    This manga looks alot more interesting then Special imo.

    Can't wait to pick this up. I'm guessing it might be in the Teen Book section instead of the Manga section, because that's how it was like for the Adventure and Dungeon mangas in my experience.

    OMG. Yumi & Taku (Roxy & Oli)!

    It's cool to see minor game characters in the manga.

    This manga looks WAY more interesting than DP Special. The DP Special is the most boring saga in PokeSpe ever and I sometimes don't quite get what's going on there.

    I'm gonna be nourished soon...

    I love how the sound effect of a PokeBall hitting the camerman's crotch is "pop."
