yeah i read the first volume, it got licensed by ADV, but they never got past the first volumes, mad if they didn't wanna complete it then why did they license it, i hate them cry now every group that scanlated it probably got a warning to cease and not continue, which leaves us leechers hopeless, since we can't read jap and thy won't bring it english....

ADV Manga really sucks ass mad I don't get what's wrong with them no

Yeah, you can scroll down here and it explains what happened to the series a little bit. Hopefully it'll be released under the Japanese name.
"Your and My Secret;" talk about horrible English laugh although I don't know if it being licensed by Tokyopop is a good thing >.>...

I guess ADV isn't too doing too well in the manga department. Maybe they are better off in the anime area.

I don't know Japanese, but I can make out a few Chinese characters out of the origiinal name (Okay, maybe my education level is at that level of a kindergarden as I have forgotten most them... ^^;) and the new name translated by Tokyopop is nowhere near the original name. I guess the new name is okay given what the manga is about.

I'm not sure either, but could you give an example as to why you say so?

Yeah, it took ADV like 3 years or something to get the second volume of Maburaho out! And there is only 2 volumes! They are much better off in the anime area eyes Their dubs aren't half bad.

So what is the new title that Tokyopop gave it? confused I don't really trust Tokyopop cuz of how badly they translated Gravitation. My poor baby! They butchered it! cry And then they're super cheap on the color posters that many of the manga they've translated came with. Half include them, the other half doesn't sad The inconsistency gets annoying.

I meant to say "area" instead of "arena", but you what I mean.

Now that you had mentioned it, the scanlation group, Manga-Sketchbook, reported that for the manga series, Threads of Time, TokyoPop had done a bad job editing the manga. According to them, every 4 or 5 pages or so, the pages were tilted, some have missing dialogue letters, etc.

Now I'm afraid of what they are going to do with this manga. ~_~

Neat. I hope they start at volume 2. Re-releasing volume 1 would just be lame since you can get it on amazon.com and such.

np, I pulled the info off of ANN since I noticed that the picture here was the same as one that had a different name on the list, since I don't read the aforementioned manga, so I put two and two together and decided to post since someone asked.

I haven't read the manga so I can't compare it, but there is a rather amusing little dorama for this series
Spoiler (highlight to view)
which you can find at www.d-addicts.com.


It's only 7 episodes with about 15 minutes of story per episode, so a nice quick watch for something fun & fluffy. I'll be seeding the files for another day or so before I delete them. eyes
