  • Who I fangirl over:I can't choose anymore since otome games are getting more popular LOL

Posted 17 June 2007 - 04:09 AM

Several days ago it was announced in certain communities over LJ that the Harukanaru Toki no Naka de manga was going to be liscensed by Viz.
I was estatic that another NeoRomance manga will have an official English translation...
I hope they don't botch it up like they did with Corda. I will never forgive them from switching from last names to first names like it was naturally from the beginning.
But then again whatever happens to it...we'll have to take it with a grain of salt.

What do you think about this news?

I'm selling stuff so if you're interested please take a look!

If you want to find more random blabbings of otome games you can look at my livejournal if you want~
I moved...it's called Peaceful Grace.
I've started a new blog at wordpress it's called Reaching Towards You since my LJ is full of my tweets.
If you want to look at pictures you can look at my tumblr nothing special...

they swicthed first name and last names right from the beginning? o.O

then a lot of the doki doki event in Corda wont work!! Like how Yunoki purposely changes from Hino-san to Hino and then to Kahoko....it always makes me scream!

But if it was Kahoko right from the beginning...seriously, that would wreck Tsukimori's image...==

I think they changed to the first name thing in volume three, in some twisted sense, I find it amusing that Tsukimori and Tsuchiura calls each other by their first names.

I wonder how they'll amend the first name thing though...considering that Hihara calling Hino 'Kaho-chan' for the first time plays a good part in Volume 6...<_<;

I think that luckily, Yunoki still calls Hino 'Miss Hino' though? Even if she now calls him Azuma....*DIES*

..............I don't mind but VIZ drops the honorifics if I remember.
I preffer Del Ray my self but it's hard to find Del Ray manga in the local store. Wait...Manga is very hard to find in my country but the store mostly has viz and tokyopop so it's not that bad I guess. Better then nothing.

I haven't looked into this series all that much, but I probably should... :P But, like some of the other people have mentioned in this topic, I'm hoping that Viz doesn't mess up this series like they did with La Corda.

It was really~ weird when I was watching the anime and reading whatever I could from the RAWs first and then go and read the English ver. that Viz released and seeing how by Volume 3 that everyone was addressing each other by their first names, when it didn't happen in the RAWs or anime until much~ later on and still... even my then, not everyone was referring to each other by their first names.

And that's true as well... some of the things that happened in the original just don't make sense in the English version because everyone is referring to each other by first name. XP

Dialogue/Quote of the Month~ XD:

Sakuma-san: *in a dramatic tone* "In this vast blue sky far over there, aspiring for the shining sun, spread your snowy white, big wings, which have been sheltering the soul of the sublime music in you... it's time to FLY up for your new journey~!!"

Shinichi: *in complete confusion* "Haaa?"

Kawano-san: "'Why don't you study abroad?" That's what he's saying."

No! Give back those official names!
There will not be any sweet moments, if the Corda guys call Hino "Kahoko" at the beginning. They are robbing my joy!

From as far as I remembered, the first volume and the first time Tsukimori Len was mentioned (the intercon thingy where they announced the participates), they said "Ren Tsukimori." o_O;; I thought "wtf?" This really contradicts the notebook incident with the R.T. initials.

But the parts where Kahoko calls Yunoki by his first name "Azuma," oh dear lord....

I think the English Haruka manga is going to run in Viz's Shoujo Beat magazine. I know Corda had its opening chapter in the mag, but after that Corda went straight to the book format. Haruka, I think, is going to stay serialized in the mag for a while. It's replacing Baby and Me, if memory serves...which is sad, since Baby and Me is awesome. ;_; Ah, well, you can't have 'em all.

Sounds OK. Should get into the Haruka series sometime but...VIZ. Why! Why do they not use honorifics? Is it that hard? T___T

If only Toyopop did it or someone better....

anyway. I heard the anime is better then the manga. Is that true?

The Haruka anime stops off, almost open-ended so you decide who's the guy at the end. If you like something like that, then you'll love the anime version.

The manga is still going so you don't really know who'll end up with who, but there are many little scenarios with each of the male characters.

Really now, TokyoPop and Viz are licensing things that aren't even finished in Japan. Good luck telling the English reading population that the artist stopped and won't continue the work for a loong time (ie. HxH)
Quantity over quality is what I've gathered they are going for..so many spelling errors, misplaced speech bubble, and ugly translations from what I seen.

Yeah I was excited to see the manga in Barnes and Nobles. But when I read through it, the name change bothered me ~(-.-~);.
