I'm particularly excited about the anime because the DVD releases corrected many of the "still frame" replacements for sequences that missed deadlines or were poor quality.
First pass check of volume 1 (tokyopop english) vs volume 1 (japanese release) ... I haven't noticed much to really whine about so far but I'm only a few pages into it.
Most of the differences so far are in just keeping the spirit of the dialog rather than a more literal translation.

Ureshii! Shiawase!!

The past weekend at my local Anime Con I purchased the first two volumes of the Tsukuyomi manga, licensed by TokyoPoP.

In waiting for volume three due out by June.

Another remarkable difference about Hazuki in the manga, that she also employs much her magic uninhibited not just only on the jagan and her cute charms but also to erect giant barriers and to dispel powerful spells.

I've got the first one online from tokyopop directly but I imagine bn.com and amazon.com will carry them. yeah, I've not seen them in any bookstore yet (and my local Barnes & Noble even has a special Tokyopop stand in the manga section).

Just finished acquiring and browsing volume 2 .... hmmmm, this reads a bit differently than what I thought was going on in the JP version... time to pull out the dictionary.

Other than that, I thought the story read reasonably well, though you can tell where the translator had some difficulty deciding how to convey the dialog.

I guess whats fascinating is that Tokyopop rates this series as 13+ .... knowing what lurks ahead I'm kind of bemused.... especially since Del Rey rated Negi at 16+ and thats just young teens prancing around, unlike TMP with near-loli, loli-thoughts, and some pretty serious loli-seduction down the road.

(I don't know if I've ever seen any established ages for the characters.... I always just figured Hazuki for a mature if petite 14 and the two fiancee mikos for 12-ish.)

The ratings might be volume by volume.

That group stopped, because it is their policy to stop scanlation distribution once a manga gets licensed.

Tsukuyomi manga became licensed last year, that's why they stopped.

Any mention of fansubs and manga scanlation groups over a licensed title will result in deletion of the post.

Oh wow, I didn't realize that this thread was 2 yrs old so I assumed after that first post that it wasn't licensed.

i seen it in the stores now and i looked through it a bit. i have to say, the manga loses ALOT of that special dark gothic feeling you get in the first episode of the video. i ll definately pick it up in a few months, but there are a few other things i want to get first.

The manga also doesn't really have that goofy, absurd element that the anime has. It *does* get pretty damned dark in later volumes though ... much darker than the anime. Its interesting to read but I kind of have to say I enjoyed the anime more.

Volume 11 of Tsukuyomi ~Moon Phase~ will be released next month (April 2006)

And Yay I got the first two volumes about a week ago

To celebrate this occasion I'll post the covers of the manga, including the cover of volume 11:



Serialized in: Comic Gum

Genre: Seinen, Fantasy, Romance

Volume 6 is the best 13+ huh

Nope, vol. 9 cover . Thank you for the covers! So pretty~

I bought first volume while ago, and for volume two, I'm waiting until I have large order. I usually order many volumes (mainly anime but manga also) at the same time.

Hmm... I didn't even realize volume 2 was out. Book stores here don't always get in titles that are not Negima, FMA, Naruto, or Fruits Basket and when they do, it's usually a few weeks after the release. If it doesn't turn up by next week, it looks like I'll have to order it online.

As for the 13+ rating, it is strange, and inconsistant with their other title's ratings. Perhaps it was based on only the first volume?

Actually artbooks are usually chopped up and included as extras with American DVDs.

Yay! that would be great if its included as an extra

But it costs 1050 yen (how much is that in dollars? about 10$ maybe)

Can something that costs about 10$ be included as an extra
