    Default "Pocket Monsters Reburst volume 1" Review Thread

    Well, it's out in Japan. To those who have it, any new info? Any new scenes? Any official romanizations shown? I'd really like to know how to pronounce Miruto's name...

    Ok, the volume goes from chapter one to chapter seven.

    Also, volume 2 is announced to be released in the fall, no release date as of now.

    Also, we get an explanation on why Ryouga gained a new hat after the first one had a hole blown in it.



    Dear god, these two would be perfect for a manzai routine.

    No romanizations, unfortunately.

    There are two extra pages with comics about the author's new cat, though. It's as lame as it seems.

    And all the color pages are greyscaled for this collection, of course.

    Is it any worse than Masashi Kishimoto's essay-length extras about how he keeps on killing his plants by accident?

    I was curious as to how much it would cost to import volume 1, so I looked on Amazon.co.jp, and all the reviews I saw for it have been negative (1 star).

    Also, including shipping and tax, it's way too damn expensive to import xD

    5 bucks says they're just those people comparing it to Digimon Frontier...

    I translated some of them using Google Translator, and they're on the lines of how this isn't a manga to give to children as it's too violent and how the Pokémon don't appear that often. After all, a friend of mine who is in Japan at the moment has said that the older audience is a lot stronger in the west than it is in Japan.

    While it can be violent. It isn't too violent.

    No one bleeds or dies....
