we got PiPiPi? never knew that...
but, Electric Tale only went through the Orange Islands, while Special has being going since Red and Green. it's just better known, is the thing. can you serisuoly say you'd want DP Manga over Special?
 
Yeah, PiPiPi was released in English, at least the first seven volumes.

We also got Ginji's Rescue Team. Albiet it was boring as hell, but we got it.

In other news--why hasn't BulbaBot posted this in the News forum yet?

Probably.

The Ono Manga was alot more interesting then Special. And the DP Manga looks better then the DP Special one.
 
Really, I think that people should atleast give this manga a try before complaining about it.
 
The one with Don or whatever is pretty cute, I think.

DP Special is very mundane. It is wrong to hope for its American release based on a positive impression from the previous chapters; the writers have obviously reached the point where their desire to remain "original" collides with the ability to conceive a decently interesting plot.

Yeah, what's up with DP special? It seems just like the anime. Usually Special is really melodramatic and action-packed. DP Special has just been lighthearted goofiness with three fairly boring characters and six rather boring Pokemon. I want to believe they're building up to something, but if they are, it's taking an incredibly long time.

Don or whatever? It's Don-Tachi. D:
 
EVERYONE DIES.

(but luckily Ruby has a fucking Celebi!)

Luckily?

Celebi-ex-machina is what ruined Special's image IMHO.

Don or whatever? It's Don-Tachi. D:

Yeah. But that's still sad that Don-Tachi isn't doing DP anymore. I won't get a chance to get Pokemon DP Manga. Never... That's why I already encourage people to scan that. Even if it's 3 months till release, I already do it!
 
well, think about it. most people read special, considering special is like THE Pokemon manga in japan.

No, most people read Special because Serebii ignorantly keeps calling it "The manga". You know it's true.

then why was it published outside its country? something no other Pokemon manga until now has done?

There have been what, 6 different Pokemon manga series released in Singapore? 7?
And, as mentioned, the US got both Dengeki and Pipipi.
 
Okay, could someone please explain ot me the difference that the publishing house/type of Manga makes please? Im an avid fan of Pokemon, and manga in general, but i havnt collected the manga since i fist became a fan nearly 10 years ago.

Your help is appreciated :)
 
GAH! Holy Crap I can't wait!
finally a new pokemon manga in the states!
Mystrious Dungeon kinda sucked but DP looks friggin sweet!!!
still though............
*Hangs his head in disapointment*
I wish they'd bring Back Pocket Monster Special.................
 
to you

if you are in the states her you go:
Viz = Good Manga, better condnition for longer, Easyer on the eyes, rights to Shonen Jump
TokyoPop = a couple good titles, gets in worse shape real fast, they don't translate every thing (like sound efects)....
so Viz would be the better way to go...

if ur anywhere else I'm sorrry I'm not well knoledged about the UK...
 
Wait, the US finally gets another manga released and all people can say is "too bad, it's not Special"? WHAT?

Jesus, I know, right? Don't get me wrong, I love Special a lot, but... yeah.

This is another shot at Pokemon manga in the US, guys!! And I'm definitely appreciatin' this opportunity.
