the translation for Kare Kano no longer sucks ass
a lot of tokyopop's more recent works are starting to not suck ass (still not as good as Del Rey or ADV however)

keep in mind i said their translations don't suck that means some of them aren't particularly good either (the infamous ghetto speak in GetBackers...it's already started to wane by vol. 2...when i'm right i'm right ^_^)

Now now, it's not the translations that suck. It's the localization. The translators simply provide a literal text translation to the localization department, who then proceeds to shove their collective heads up their asses and fart out what you see on the printed page.

one of the volumes seriously borked up and had them starting school in the fall, i believe (japanese schools start in spring)
plus other things like changing name spellings (changing "Shouko" to "Shoko"...but that instance is nit picking...most english speakers would pronounce "o" and "ou" sounds in japanese exactly the same way no mater how you spelled it...)

i did not read the thread because i have not read the manga yet.

I got a question. I really liked the anime (except the end) and i would like to know if this manga was licensed in France (in french).

I really enjoyed Volume 9, although I also enjoyed the previous volumes as well. I am looking forward to the "Arima Arc" I allow myself to get too involved in their lives. Currently I am worried that dark Arima is going to take over and things between him and Yukino are going to get bad. I don't want to know what happens, the suspense is what makes the story so good.

As for the play, it was great! I didn't expect it to take up nearly an entire volume, but it worked so well. And it must have been fun for Masami Tsuda to write a slightly different story with different characters and be able to incorporate it into Kare Kano. Much better IMO than taking up 40 or so pages to showcase a completely different story (as was done at the end of volume 8) Nothing worse for me that to think I have another chapter to go and find it is a completely different series.

Since I didn't get into this series until well after it was licensed, I think the first 5 volumes were already released, I can't attest to the translations. I will say that the manga is much better than the anime. Again, just my opinion.

Agreed, I was surprized that the story took a huge chunk of the manga. It was very good and I loved every minute of it. Like a good stage play it has some humor, great characters, and of course great drama. I would have loved to see how it would have been animated.

Do you know if we can find this in Quebec? there, we only have what the French make. and i think it takes sometimes before we get what is already published in France.

Kare kano

Just recently saw the anime, (my friend had the dvds and never told me, damn him for making me wait to see this).. well I now want to read the manga but heard the tokyopop edition was something to skip or something. So does anyone can tell me if there is a french edition, and who publish it as well as what is the french name given to the serie if it's not Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou???

That's all, I guess. I have read the last volume raw but I still had to consult Wikipedia to see what it was all about.

Nice summary renegade.

And yea its a really wonderful series...The "arima" arc wasnt exactly to my liking since it kindof excluded all of their friends and didnt really give yukino much to do especially towards its conclusion.

With that said it did have a very satisfying and nicely poetic ending.

Thumbs up

After watching the anime recently and being totally disappointed with the ending, I jumped on the manga and ended up racing my way though all 21 volumes in about a week.

This is probably the longest manga I have read so far, and I had to say I really enjoyed every bit of it. The characters were just so wonderful and... alive that I wanted to know more and more about them. I even enjoyed the melodrama of the "Arima Arc" (and I'm normally not that big on melodrama). I especially liked the last volume, too.
Spoiler for Last Volume:

Well worth reading.

I got the first 19 volumes as they were being released (by TokyoPop) but I must say that I didn't enjoy the Arima Arc at all, I can't say there was anything wrong with it but I just personlly didn't like the melodrama Or perhaps the lack of comedy was related to my lack of interest in the later volumes.

I didn't actually realise that the series finished with Vol 21 Since I think I will also enjoy the final volume (thanks for the quick synopses) I'll have to buy that as well. Hmmm, can I hold out in not buying Vol 20.

Well, I would have to say I liked the more light-hearted and funny stuff from the earlier volumes, too. By the point I got to the "Arima Arc" though, I was so "in-to" the characters that I still enjoyed reading about them, even though like I said I'm generally not a big fan of melodrama.

After the rather "heavier" subject matter of the story arc that proceeded it, the more happy and up-beat tone of the last two volumes was a nice choice by the author and a great way to wrap up the series.

Ah this is good to hear. So it sounds like I might enjoy Vol 20 as well, guess I need to order that with Vol 21 as well then.
