Well, I really liked the newest volume and will be extremely sad once 10 rolls around. My biggest problem is the weird looking Polibo. Just...why?
And Yamamoto's artwork isn't bad. It is different from Mato's, yes, but it's nothing to piss your pants about the way you always seem to be doing.
"95% of the people who are able to read kana think that this automatically makes them know the entire Japanese language, as opposed to actually knowing little more than a first-year student of the language. If you are one of the 5% of that population who believes that being able to read kana is not impressive at all, copy and paste this into your sig."
Pidgeot just got really mad when I showed him Yamamoto's artwork for the first time, and he knows that volume 10 was when he took over.
And I prefer Mato's art. I did not get angry. Well maybe a little, but not as badly as you seem to remember.
