View Full Version : Naruto Vol1 Pushed Back

That's right folks. Naruto was pushed back to September. But before you get mad, hear why it was done. They pushed it back cause they need more time to fix the horrible first translation that they did when it was published in Shonen Jump. You all know what I'm talking about if you've read the Japanese versions. And if you haven't, believe me, it was very bad.

You can edit posts if you need to add something, Luffy XII. ^^

AHHAHA. That's the best reason EVER to delay English manga! Better translation! I approve. Good move on Viz's part.

That's a good idea

Yeah, like in one part, Naruto says "Kiss my ass!" when he was actually supposed to say "I will surpass everyone before me!" That's how bad it was the first time around. Thank goodness they're fixing it. ^__^

How much of it did they fix? Are the changes noticable?

I've only noticed some small changes.. I have yet to really compare it to the Shonen Jump version.

From a friend, I've heard that they were supposed to introduce everyone when they were in class, and they left Ino out of the introductions too oO'. I could tell something was strange with the first translations, despite the fact I haven't read the manga in Japanese, since I can't read Japanese anyways XD. I'm looking forward to a corrected version though ^^". I'll definitely be buying it.

Yeah, I noticed the fixings. I like the first name of Sasuke's technique better. In shonen jump he says, Breath of the fireball techniqe!!! Now he says, Fire style!!! Fireball technique!!!

Yes, but they didn't change Naruto's move....I don't like Art of the Doppelganger (sp?) that much...>_<. But at least they fixed other stuff. The first time around they didn't translate Naruto's motivation that well. It felt like....something was missing. They sorta fixed it in this time.
