I bought all 4 volumes and the translations were spot on. Hell they are almost word for work with the scanlations. Do you even know japanese? As I remember most the swearing was already in english in the japanese versions. Like the scene where revy is at the shooting gallery after she is cheated out of the prize.

I took it for a few years and I thought they did a good job. Thank god they shrink wrapped it so those posers who just read it and never buy can't ruin it with their dirty cheetoe stained fingers.

Plus I have all the chapters to date 71 raw and translated.

But the book is a tiny bit bigger than a normal manga that's why it's 2-3 dollars more. I have a subscription so I pay about 10 bucks or less. They plan to release up to volume 7, and probably to 9 eventually.
