Ok, so recently Viz released Shana manga and novel, but my question is: which is which? (ie. cover)

I wanted to order Shana Novel trough one of the polish stores (which offers manga/novels in english/german) but know I don't konw what to order and it doesn't help that they didn't show the covers

Anyone can help?

(for interested: those are the products pages, unfortunatly in Polish, but I can translate some details - if that could help

Check the ISBNs on the Polish site against the ones listed for the novel and manga at the Viz website:
http://www.viz.com/products/products...roduct_id=6531 - novel, ISBN 1-4215-1193-2

http://www.viz.com/products/products...roduct_id=6535 - manga, ISBN 1-4215-1195-9

...
The cover is the same image of the original Japanese cover. I do believe ViZ will keep the original Japanese covers for the NA releases, unless....


Well, I finally got the novel (ViZ) with the manga in the mail today. I've yet to read them though, due to schoolwork. >_>;

However, I flipped through the novel and was somewhat amused that ViZ cut off part of the color image with Yuji waking up to find Shana sleeping in the bed. XD [EDIT: Yeah, the B&W image of her changing got cut out as well.] (Guess they decided that it was a bad idea to show readers Shana in her underwear. Pity for the fans that liked the fanservice? Haha.... >_>")

When I can, I'll scan some sample pages to show you guys (just how well did ViZ translate this? ;o). I also read from somewhere (Was it this thread? Too lazy go back to check.) that there was a typo in the translation by ViZ so I intend to read it through to see if it's true. D:

They cut out some illustrations from the novel? Noooo~ D:
Half the fun in the novel, IMO, is the great artwork by Noizi Ito (Noiji? I always forget). And of course, censorship is bad. But it's not new to Viz.

I still need to order both the manga and novels, but the bookstores around here don't have them. Oddly enough, both have manga sections but most of the light novels published by Tokyopop and Viz are nowhere to be seen, go figure.

i bought the Shana manga today and yet to read it. However i have a question.

I want to know which one is better, the manga or the novel? I know the difference. Novel is less pictures with more words while manga is the opposite. But ..does the novel go longer than the manga in 1 volume?

I dont know if i made the right choice or not in buying the manga version >.> I'm not that experience in it.

I asked the store owner and the expression he gives me is *blank* -___-.

Well, one volume of novel should go further into the story than one volume of manga... I don't wanna take responsible if it doesn't so don't count me on it though. I have bought the book and have yet to read it.

@piku: I don't see the illustration of shana in underwear either (damn ;_; ) ... As for Shana sleeps in Yuji's bed one, I see the color'd illustration from one of the first few pages

I would say the novel, because the it's the source of everything else, both the mangá and the anime are based off the novel.

It's like a movie that is based off a book. The movie may be great but, IMO, nothing would surpass the book.

But that is just what I think.

Where do you people buy the book?

Did you guys order it online or find it at a book store?

I was planning on getting this a while back but most stores around me didn't have it in stock. I really don't want to order it online unless I have to >.>

It depends where you live. I can tell you the name of the stores in my area only if you live on my side of the world . It will be meaningless if i tell you and you happen to live elsewhere.

Where to get the manga and/or novel? I got mine (both) straight from Amazon... I was pretty sure the bookstores near me like Barnes&Noble and Borders wouldn't have it the first day out [Apr. 17] (I'm impatient. XD). Kinokuniya might've worked too.... But then again, I didn't check. I live in NYC, by the way. So I don't know if these stores would be near where you live.

I live in Toronto.

There's not many book stores near my area but are there any particular stores that i should check?

I know for a fact no Chapters nor Indigos would have it in stock.

I am not too familiar with smaller book stores so I really don't know where to check and I am way too lazy to just drive around the city looking for one >.>

I live in Virginia and the major stores still don't have any copies of the novel (which I really don't care about now since it's confirmed to be edited...).

ahh Toronto. I suggest you might want to check downtown for the anime shops on the Spadina-Dundas intersection. In North-East of it, theres an animeshop called Anime Xtreme that sells anime stuff.

In South-West of the intersection, theres a chinese mall there, NOT AT the intersection but the mall down south abit. Its on the second floor. The name of it is called Kikiwai.

For Kikiwai, heres their site, you can call them for the location and what kinds of stuff they have currently: http://www.kikiwai.com/

For Anime Xtreme, heres their site as well, the site is closed when theres a mini-map where you can actually see where its located in the area: http://store.animextreme.ca/

I hope it helps
