Pokemon Special scheduling

I'm currently putting together the schedule for August and September. I have more than 40 chapter to do in those two months, which isn't that big of a deal. However, the problem is that it's divided among nine series (eight out of the nine that I'm doing right now plus Mudazumo 2). To reduce my headache and evenly distribute release time, I'll put Pokemon Special vol 39 and the overdue BW chapters in the same slot.

However, I want to ask where you guys want me to put the BW chapters: in front of vol 39, in the middle, or after? If it's after, then it will get delayed into mid-September.

  1. Personally, I'm eagerly awaiting vol 39, so perhaps a few BW chapters can wait a while? I think a lot of readers would prefer this, but I can't talk for everyone. Good work you're doing either way, /a/non!!

  4. Vol. 39 first please!

    It's the series that Satoshi Tajiri said was "the comic that most resembles the world I was trying to convey."

  5. BW after Vol 39. I want to see the current arc end first. If only the manga could overtake the game production...

  6. Vol 39 please, as BW game popularity really push both Platinum and HGSS Chapter off to the edge. This is last thing we need to do to honor both chapter.

  7. Please, Platinum arc first. We've been waiting for this volume since Feburary...

    I'm pretty bothered at how BW arc pushed Platinum and HGSS off to the edge :/

  10. Volume 39 > BW, please, :D

  11. Eh, I already got the BW volumes that Viz released which has chapters you never scanlated, so I'm pretty much tided over on that.

    Volume 39 please.

    @Donk
    Please don't use that quote. It only applies to volume 1 and things have changed since then.

  12. Not that I hate BW, but it is really a bother when they make a Chapter ends prematurely(HGSS). Let's end platinum first and go next to HGSS!

    Although that he says that only for volume 1, I believe his statement about that isn't change for the past volume unless he said something. But yes, try not to use that because there is some people that have problem with that quote.

  13. First volume 39 (yay!!!) and then BW (if the chapter is already tranlated by VIZ, maybe there's no need to scanlate it, unless it gets censored or something). I'm so excited!

    @Donk
    Both the Platinum arc and BW chapters are Pokémon Special/Adventures, so this statement is not a point for either. But keep using it in other cases, so that people will get to know how this story and art overcomes the anime's.

  14. Viz has only translated up until /a/non's chapter 3 (which is their chapter 7). At this point, it'll take several more books before they're caught up...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Volume 39 please! Coronis's summaries and the netkun site can curb my appetite for BW.

    ReplyDelete
  16. it would be good if volume 39 could come first ^.^ thanks for the hardwork !~~

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't really need to say since there is already a VAST majority, but volume 39 first. I can wait on BW until it's over, since we'll have summaries and teaser pics to tie us over 'til you release it. :3

    ReplyDelete
  18. Does 39 wrap up the Platinum arc? That was fast, although my vote is actually to stick BW in the middle. XD

    ReplyDelete
  19. Volume 39 is confirmed to go up till where the Platinum chapter ended in the magazines (It ended on a cliffhanger). Most likely there will be new stuff added in here too, but if not, then volume 40 will have it.

  20. Michaelf1993, you have the Viz volume, right? Could you tell me how the chapter numbers correspond between the chapters that I've released and the Viz release? I realize that the Viz chapter numbers are probably wrong as well, but I'm curious.

    ReplyDelete
  21. No, they seem to be in perfect order actually.

    Your chapters 1-3 are Viz's 5-7.

    The second volume ends at Black vs N part 1, so your chapter 4 would be chapter 8.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh /a/non, there's no chance that Pokémon Special will ever come to my country. I've searched the web for VIZ's BW scans but didn't find a thing. If you know a link for them, please post it here. Thank you for it all.

    @Michaelf1993
    Good to know, now things make sense, hehe.

  23. BW39. I wanna see the full Platinum Arc, no one else has scans of it anywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  24. .....whoops. I mean Vol. 39. Sorry about that! brain broke.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Volume 39 1st, please ^^ (almost everyone ask for it XD) and I don't mind waiting a bit for BW afterall even the order is confusing @.@

    Is@

    ReplyDelete
  26. 39 First please.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I do believe the majority has spoken. Volume 39 is winning by a landslide.

    ReplyDelete
  28. But August and September chapters of BW will be made sometime in September, amirite?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Platinum Arc first, please.

    ReplyDelete
  30. @Anonymous: That's because we don't have the full Platinum arc yet. We got a bit of it via magazines, but it ended before it got too far and no one scanned the magazines. So we have to wait for the volumes, and this volume will get to where the magazines left off, from which point everything will be new and volume-only, and only coming out for the first time.

  31. @Anonymous
    Which Anonymous do you mean?

    And volume 39 first please!

  32. @Anonymous The one who said: Anonymous said "BW39. I wanna see the full Platinum Arc, no one else has scans of it anywhere." and ".....whoops. I mean Vol. 39. Sorry about that! brain broke."

    Was just trying to explain why there weren't scans anywhere for it yet. :D

    And haha, all us anons talking to each other is funny xD

  33. As much as I can't wait to see the most awesome Pokemon games ever adapted to the most awesome Pokemon manga ever (BW that is), I'd also like to read Platinum and HGSS before going too deep into the BW arc.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Vol. 39 please~ I want that arc to be over and done with sooner than later. BW can wait.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just so you know, this volume will not finish the Platinum chapter, so wanting it to be over quicker won't matter.

    ReplyDelete
  36. And we had our hopes up :(

    ReplyDelete
  37. Why would people get their hopes up like that? Volume 38 only had a small few beginning chapters of Platinum, so there is no way the ENTIRE ARC would be over by the end of this volume. Especially considering that every arc is at least 3 volumes long...

    ReplyDelete
  38. ^ Not to mention ever since Satoshi Yamamoto became the artist every arc has been 4 volumes long at the very least.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Please Platinum arc first!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Vol. 39 BW Chapters are scrambled and aren't in order so what would be the point. Even though I love the BW Arc. GIVE ME MA MANGA RAAAAWR
