Same here. They were actually the volumes I was probably looking forward to most, actually. xD;I was so shocked when I read that they aren't releasing 15-29 volumes, I was so looking forward for them D:
Sent an e-mail, asking what was going on, and got back reply, that they've already got lots of letters. So maybe there's hope after all...
Well of course they're more expensive, since they're bigger. But not greatly so, and I see many of them on shelves for a variety of different series. The biggest problem with them is that the bindings tend to break easier simply due to the size.
But they still sell, since they're basically (usually) three volumes for the price of two.
Out of curiosity, how many of them are done by Viz?
So I was just basically asking are they ever gonna release those volumes, like maybe after Platinum, or Black and White -arcs, and they replied me back:
"Right now we still have those but we have gotten a lot of letters!"
I don't want to get my hopes up, but maybe if people keep sending e-mails...
The author said he wanted everyone to read and experience it together!
No, but them saying they plan to "relaunch" the series with DP and that they currently don't have any plans to release RS does.That they're skipping ahead a bit doesn't say anything about releasing volumes in between.
Well, stopping the release of the older volumes after GSC and "restarting" with DP-onward would technically be a relaunch. I agree it's weird, but it doesn't matter that we don't consider it a relaunch because Viz does.And I repeat this question. How can they relaunch the series with the Diamond & Pearl chapter, when they already did that be rereleasing the series in the first place?
Well aren't you just a ray of sunshine.
"Relaunching" is what the ENTIRE SERIES has done. Every volume we've gotten has been because Viz decided to relaunch Special. That they're skipping ahead a bit doesn't say anything about releasing volumes in between.
Basically, we are relaunching with vol. 30: Diamond and Pearl/Platinum.
But Viz is considering their release of DP a relaunch for the series itself -- not just a split-off. And because of that, it does have something to do with releasing/not releasing RSE. It's connected because they are all part of the same series, and their wording does suggest things pertaining to releasing/not releasing the RS/FRLG/E arcs.The "facts" are that they released DP as a split-off. It has nothing to do with releasing RSE or not.
I don't think so. Given Viz's comment about relaunching the series with DP I don't think there is anything wrong in assuming we won't get RS/FRLG/E. It is a likely possibility, after all. At the same time though, I do think people should realize that it's only a possibility and that we should not take it for fact yet. Especially since there is another possibility as well -- Viz's comment about having no current plans to release RS means we still might get it at some point, just later than we originally were.Again, you guys are assuming too much.
It doesn't matter what fanbase it appeals to though. Viz treat their mangas differently based on ratings, not what fanbase they appeal to. But since Viz has released wide-bans before, I do agree that it isn't too much to assume that they might do the same with Adventures. (even if it does have a different rating) Especially since they are making volume 14 bigger (making it almost the size of a wide-ban), suggesting that they don't mind releasing wide-bans under their VizKids label/All Ages rating.Also, Viz has released Ruroni Kenshin and Dragon Ball/DBZ in the wide volumes, and Dragon Ball has a lot of the same fans as Pokemon (sure you can quibble and point out that it has a higher rating, but it only has a higher rating because of restrictions. It still appeals to the same basic fanbase).

You guys realize that a "relaunch" is something very different from what you all seem to think it is. Like the show "relaunches" every time it changes its title, but it's the same show.
