    Default Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Adventure volume 6 discussion thread!

    Wow long enough title? Anyway, creepy little Silverish brat! Flint and his honeys! Hareta has the most irresponsible father in the world! More Cynthia! And egg time!


    Also, the series now has a TVTropes page if anyone wants to help fill it out.

    So, what's Hareta's father English name?

    Kaisee? Kaisei? Kaise? Kaiser? Something else?

    Kaisei. Although one time they fouled up and called him Keisei.

    Also Looker is called Hansom. Charon on the other hand is Charon. And Shinsei Team Galactic is Neo Team Galactic...just as Sato predicted. He also predicted some of the chapter titles. I have a feeling someone at Viz may be consulting Bulbapedia.

    Also the art in this volume is AWESOME. I especially like how Ihara drew Earthquake.

    Hansom, eh.

    I'm afraid we'll have more screw-ups like this in PokeSpe 8+.

    In PokeSpe 8, I'm sure we'll meet our new hero Gordo of Wakava Town, who happens to be obsessed with Professor Oak's radio sidekick, DJ Kulumi. >_>

    LOL.

    Unfortunately I don't have this yet because the comic store near my house didn't get it in... booo. Hopefully I'll be able to pick it up downtown tomorrow, though.

    Copy-pasting from a similar thread on SPPf is fun!



    And to avoid this being completely unoriginal:
    I think the "Hansom" bit is baffling, but I hesitate to call that a complete screw-up because that IS a valid romanization of his Japanese name(Hansamu). That's not really an excuse for not calling him Looker(or using the more logical romanization of "Handsome"), but it's still not a gigantic mistake. oh, who am I kidding? That's going to bug me every time I see his name in DPA.

    I also have to agree that this volume had great art, although I think DPA has great art in general.

    Bought the volume today. Read about 2/3 of it so far, I'm really enjoying it so far and I'm pretty impressed with the low rate of errors (nothing big's jumped out at me yet. I haven't reached "Hansom" yet, though). I don't like Koya much so far, even though he reminds me of Paul, who I do like. :P

    On a side note, it bugs me that they keep screwing up the titles of Ihara's other manga! It's Pokemon Emerald Challenge!! Battle Frontier and Dual Jack!!, not Pokemon Emerald Challenge!! and Battle Frontier, Dual Jack!!!! >:[

    Sometimes I want to hurt people.

    Starting to read? Has this person actually read the series? At ALL?

    I'd say no.

    Geez. Simple language doesn't make for an easy reader book. Sure all the words are understood, but no learn-to-read book would have dialogue like this:

    Grunt: We know! But we don't care! ALL that matters is that we carry out Charon's orders!
    As I said, simple language doesn't equal basic readership.

    Found a few grammar errors and Kaisei's mouthful-of-popcorn translation was wrong at one part (faffle=fight?)but other than that it was pretty good.
    Ummm, you read my post. Cookie for you

    ...Ah, I'm so late.

    I agree - best art to date. Name changes are fun - they keep "Charon" true to the English translation (eh, I'm pleased. I've grown fond of it now, a year later...), but now every time I see "Hansom", I think "HANSON"... Inconsistency much? D8

    And Koya... heh, I think he's the manga love-child of Silver and Paul. Trufax. At least I might start liking him and Hareta's spats or shipping them....

    Somehow, I feel disappointed by the Cynthia v. Mitsumi battles... just go all out already, plz. No, I don't ship it...oh wait... YES I DO. And Kaisei... heh, there's something about him that just makes me laugh. At least we now know where Hareta gets his personality from, yes?

    Still, great volume - can't wait to see how Viz handles the rest of the series!
