I just imported it from amazon, no way I'm gonna hold my breath until my local comic/manga/books import store may get it.
Plus it's cheaper.

I imported it from Amazon. The translation is pretty nice. Yen Press did a wonderful job.

Just ordered volume 1 of Forgery of the Purple Logic from cdjapan. Anyone else got it? Without spoilers, what did they think of it? And is each volume going to be a separate story?

I've only seen the first two chapters... but I couldn't really read them.
So far it doesn't look bad though the art is cute but not as pretty as some manga version or... as scary as in the others manga versions (in Ep 8 during Bern's game culprit Battler is rather scary...).

The idea behind the mystery and the game might be interesting... and there's a rather funny moment... but after only 2 untranslated chapters I'm not sure I can give a correct judgement. Let's say this is only a first glance impression

I think you mean the first 2 volumes, which includes 10 chapters.

Are there two volumes out? There's only one volume available on cdjapan, and it was released on 24th January this year.

Nope I saw only the first 2 chapters printed on the magazines of 'Forgery of purple logic'.
I wasn't even aware 2 volumes of it had been released. I thought it was just 1 as of now...

Pretty sure it's just one, seeing as the first volume was released less than two weeks ago.

Just finished reading volume 2. The adaptation is pretty good, but the translation is simply amazing. I recommend every fan of Umineko to buy it, we gotta support the franchise.

Yup, once again, Yen Press has done an awesome job. And the artist for this chapter (Turn) is awesome. She's perfect for those extreme expression shots.

I hope the side manga also get licensed by Yen Press. They've already done those two side-arcs for Higurashi (Beyond Midnight and Demon Exposing), so I guess the chances are good?

Forgery of Purple Logic looks awesome to me purely because it has Erika on the cover. Very [good]!

Yen Press really is doing a great job with the manga releases. I recommend them highly, and it's really nice to have such conveniently large volumes. Can't wait for ep 3. Ep 2 is nice, but I don't like its artist as much as the first one.

Just reading Episode 3. Pretty good so far. The best part in their translation is the fact that they try to give each character a certain style of speech. In Witch Hunts translation this was mostly absent. But Yen Press try to stay to the original as hard as possible.

Again, I recommend everyone to buy it, it's pretty sweet.

I don't know if a certain style of speech is necessarily closer to the original
Witch Hunt's translation was really close, sometimes probably closer than necessary because they might have feared to miss certain implications or destroy some hints (though I don't know if that was the case of course).

I'd like to read the Yen Press release once and compare, but I really don't have the money to buy Umineko in Japanese and English.

Yeah, Virgilia talks in a much more dignified English than WH's Lia. Jessica acts like a tomboy as narrative describes. Rudolf has a curse word in very good moments and doesn't feel tedious, Natsuhi has a very humble way of talking and Beatrice is also awesome.

I can't explain it with words well. XD

that's a nice touch, but considering the nature of the game, a translation that is the most accurate possible is preferred. i still remember teh whole abortion vs stillborn incident.

Well, by now it is a lot easier to create a proper translation, in case the translator is doing a good job and properly researches the whole series.
The problem is that a series like Umineko demands a lot more than just a good and lively translation, because the series has a lot more meta-context than the usual run-of-the-mill Shonen Jump manga. The best is of course a mixture of both elements, good translation and good contextualization, the question is if the Yen Press translator does that. Can anybody tell me who the translator for Umineko is?

All the Yen Press volumes I have a list a Stephen Paul as the translator. I'm not sure that's very meaningful, though, since only a rare few translators have any sort of reputation.
