Poor Minami. I guess she's easy to woobie because she'll just stand there and let stuff happen to her without protest.

I was just informed by Barnes&Noble that the shipment of the english version of Lucky*Star manga volume has been delayed to 14June09 (one month delay).

No notice on the official site of any problems (imagine that.... :P). Hopefully, its just a distribution burp from Bandai .... but the Tokyopop disarray has me a bit twitchy.

I was wondering what was up with it. Hopefully they can make that date.

So anyone manage to find a copy today? My online order is still "On order from manufacturer", so I checked out some bookstores. No luck p_q

Was just notified by B&N that my copy of L*S vol 1 (english) has shipped. So I suppose that means we should all start seeing them in a week or less?

Bookstores usually get manga on the shelves about a week after my pre-orders arrive, just fyi.

GAH! So lucky . Did you get a chance to read it yet? I'm really hoping they did a good job with the translation.

Anyway my copy still hasn't shipped But hopefully it will by the end of the week.

On a sidenote, how many light novels are there for Lucky Star? I know about the murder case one, but wiki lists two more. Are they for real and if so why are they so hard to find

I'd say the translation was good... but since I can't read Japanese, anything I say on that subject would be suspect...



It's a good read, anyways!

Got my copy, part way through it. The translation isn't terrible... just kind of odd (I have spotted one or two minor "wtf?" translations but the gist wasn't ruined).

I think the translator was trying to be as transparent as possible so some terms are left in Japanese, the sentence structure is sometimes awkward/formal, etc. There's also a large glossary at the end.

Quality of the print is about as good as it gets in "R1-land".

If you want to know what Lucky*Star is REALLY like, then you should buy the manga --- it is going to surprise the "product placement", "insider reference", "industry gags" fanatics.

Hmmm amazon says the release for volume 3 is in nov, which is pretty fast release since it also says vol 2 is for aug. Im liking it though.

The translation was decent. But they replaced 'sensei' with 'ma'am'. I always got the feel that, even though it was a title for her, sensei was used sort of as a name. So I think Kuroi being called ma'am threw it off.

There are a few little 'off' things, as vexx mentioned. Oh well, english releases are a good sign, hopefully.

Missed this press release: Lucky Star Manga Vol. 1 to Get Second Printing

According to this press release I found on ANN, the first volume is going back for a second printing after only two weeks of release.

Amazing!

See, if I read that, I'd actually be thrown off by the fact that "ma'am" is for people who are presumably married.

eh? There are six volumes of Lucky*Star released so far in Japan.... not sure what you're meaning there. The first volume contains the first 25 "episodes" (as the author calls them) but volume six ends with "episode 184" and then a couple of "specials".

Hard to remember but at the time of airing for Lucky*Star's anime adaptation, it seems like there were 4 volumes released at that point.

Quote:
There are six volumes of Lucky*Star 4-koma manga at present. Also a number of "other artists" short story collections and various doujinshi.
Volume 6: http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%89%E3...1445658&sr=8-7

All L*S products at amazon.co.jp: http://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_ss?...2%BD&x=20&y=20

The volumes were averaging six months between released but volume 6 arrived a year after volume 5.... don't know if we'll see a volume 7 or not but September would be the month to start scanning for it. Of course, one can wait for the english versions which started a few months ago.
