There was a thread earlier where we discussed Tokyopop translations, including Kare Kano. I'll see if I can find it again. Here we go.
Btw, it would seem that the Kare Kano manga is still going on in Japan.

Cool thanks for the replies. Heh yea i did a search but I only read the first post of that "tokyopop" thread so I didn't think i would find anything useful. Thanks for linking me back to it. Yea I think there are more negative responses towards tokyopop so I guess i'll try to get the korean ones.

Volume 17's out in chinese as well..

Leaves you sort of on a cliffhanger...

I wonder how Arima's dad is like? and why did he abandon his family?

can't wait till vol.18.

I'd buy and read it, but I heard Tokyo Pop trashed it. I do not want to buy a copy to see how badly they trashed it however so, *shrugs*

Well, I only skimmed the Tokyopop volume one briefly. I don't remember the exact wording in the original version, so I really have no judgement on the translation. However, it seems that quality control was lax, so you have things like "perfect" split across two lines like:
She was perfec
t!

Also, for one of the volumes, the translator wasn't sent the volume after that, so she (I think it's a she) translated バレー(bare-) as ballet instead of volleyball.

I've read a few books of that series. My friend bought them, so why not? It wasn't the best manga I've ever red, but it wasn't bad.

I've got & read volume 1-8 from Tokyopop now and I can't say I can't find
anything majorly-big-time wrong with it (and since I read the same rumors,
I was trying to nitpick when I read the later volumes).

I only wished Tokypop and other US manga companies used a cheaper price.
Why can manga be 5/6 euro on average in Germany yet $10 in US? Heck, it's
even cheaper in Japan, while things usually are damn expensive there.
But I'm getting off-topic...

I think labor costs and cost of paper/printing have something to do with it.

I read the first chapter and hated it. I just did not like the style at all. I love romance stories and a lot of people like this one so I'm quite disappointed I can't get by the style to read the story. But ugh...reading it was torture.

Hehehe, TronDD, I feel your pain. I don't think I even made it through the first chapter. This was the scanslation back in the day when I'd first gotten into shoujo manga and everyone was like "You've gotta read Kare Kano!" I didn't like the first chapter at all so I just tossed it out, but I've been meaning to go back and give it another try sometime in the future.

later on the art gets a lot better, and i do mean ALOT.
and if u want to know what happens after the anime ends, you should read the manga.
The anime really never shows the REAL yoma ( i hope that's the main male character's name).
If anyone is interested in what happens in the manga, just ask me~
but u have to refresh me with the characters' english names lol

There was a site that compared TP's version to the original Japanese version ages back. But TP told them to take it down. Figures.

Kare Kano #9 (spoilers)

Wow, one of my favorite manga's of all time is now in the 9th volume.

After reading it I came really shocked and surprized. Aya's play that is performed in the majority of the manga is awesome and very well made. Her statements that the characters for the play, mirror that of Yukino, Maho, and Tsubasa is right on the money.

The story itself alse dealt the the relationship between Sakura and Tonami. In the end of the story the author (Masami Tsuda) mentions that number 9 is essentially the end of the "Yukino Arc" and the start of the "Arima Arc". One can easily assume that the focus of the story will shift from yukino to arima. Also we can also guess that the story will start taking a darker turn because Arima is a conflict with himself and Arima's story is a lot darker overall compared to the overly eccentric yukino.

I really had no point to this post except to say that it is another awesome Kare Kano manga.

I have to say that I enjoyed that play a lot and that's why volume nine had turned out to be one of my favorite volumes

No idea, I read the Chinese version >.>
The only thing I really know about the later volumes is the 'ballet/volleyball' mixup, in which the translator assumed it was 'ballet' without checking the following volume.
