That's really exciting, Fake has always been one of my favorite series and well deserves any attention it receives. ^_^ I miss it terribly.

01-25-2003, 08:21 PM
...that's great, but I don't think I'll buy ANOTHER set of Fake manga just so I can actually understand what's happening XD I'll just hang in with my Japanese classes until I can understand everything ^_~

01-25-2003, 08:45 PM
*does victory dance* Yeah for FAKE!!! :D

01-26-2003, 01:23 PM
I understand, Ali. I'm excited about the manga series getting picked up over here, but I've never bought a single one... I don't need nor really want the translations (and certainly won't pay for another copy of a book I've already got) but awesome that it's coming out!

01-26-2003, 01:28 PM
Yeah its all good XD Its great to see so many shoujo manga being translated, and now BL manga too? Yay~

I already got all of FAKE in Japanese, but I'll buy up the Gravitations I don't have already XD

But I wonder how fans of the Gravitation anime will like the manga, its soo much different..!! I didn't like the first couple volumes of it, but then I bought some of the later ones and they were funny, and the art had gotten a whole lot better..!! (Moral: keep reading Gravitation even if you don't like it much from the start ^_^)

u.u; not excited.

01-26-2003, 04:40 PM
0.0 why not?

01-26-2003, 05:01 PM
Maybe because she's already seen it? ^^ I've seen Gravitation 93489348 times (lol, yes that's a hyperbole) so I don't really care if it comes out here because it's not really a favorite series of mine anymore.

01-26-2003, 07:06 PM
Wow, poor you...anything gets horrid if you get it shoved in your face too much...

(maybe I won't get mobbed at Ushicon for being Yet Another Shuuichi because I'll have an artbook costume, so they won't recognize me! *hides behind a potted plant*)

I want to get Gravitation even though I don't like the art style in the first part of the series...but I agree, it gets a LOT nicer!
I just don't have money yet ^^ Maybe if I see it at a bookstore and it looks like a nice translation, I'll get it...especially if I'm at the bookstore spending a gift card, so I don't have to be spending my money ^_~

01-26-2003, 07:08 PM
mirage of blaze (another yaoi show) should be out here soon too. bout time we got some decent yaoi in the states ><;; also i've been waiting to buy liscensed gravitation.... so hard to fight the urge to buy bootleg ;o;

01-26-2003, 07:22 PM
i want to see mirage of blaze too.. i've been so interested in it but i can't get any info on it anywhere >.<

Oh and yay for Gravitation and FAKE manga! I was just about to give in and buy japanese Gravitation and spend the rest of my life translating it... but this opens up some space to have a life =D whee!

01-26-2003, 08:22 PM
Mirage of Blaze is yaoi??? Man I never even knew, lol ^_^ I just thought "Oh, that looks cool, I wanna see it~" lol XD I just don't know if I'll have the money.. T_T

01-26-2003, 08:25 PM

here's a link w/ more info about the show.

01-26-2003, 09:25 PM
Heeeeeeee! Exciting! I've never heard of that, but it totally sounds interesting! I'll have to see If I can find a fansub somwhere <very poor at the moment> Another one that just came out is Yami no Matsuei (descendent of Darkness) Sugoi! That one is also amazing! Thanks again for the heads up on Mirage of Blaze ^_^

01-26-2003, 09:56 PM
heh np, i think anime works has it @_@;; i'm not very current on releases but i'm pretty sure i've seen ads for it in the american newtype and animerica.

01-27-2003, 07:57 AM
I loved the gravitation manga right from the start!
I actually was a stubborn G-Manga reader and refused to watch the series at first because I thought they would slaughter the whole premise x.x;

01-27-2003, 12:35 PM
I LOVE Gravitation! I'm surprised it's being picked up by an American company.. however.. I'm not too big a fan of Tokyo Pop.. :< Guess I'll have to buy it now. T___T

01-27-2003, 12:50 PM
let's all take bets on how much gets cut out in the last volume of FAKE. ^_____^;;;;

01-28-2003, 08:49 PM
Heh XD

Well, my anime store sells much worse (yaoi, not het/yuri!) stuff than FAKE, but I don't know about how well that would go over with bookstores...they probably just wouldn't carry it or something o_O I've never noticed a "porn comics" section in a bookstore like Borders, maybe I just never looked! Who knows *G*

I hearts Fake. Now maybe people will stop complaining about the short anime and realize you were supposed to read the manga first. u.u;

Fake > Gravitation.

If they are even daring enough to print the last one. I'm worried that they will drop it half way through printing it. -.-' I hate it when they do that.

I love Gravitation even though the anime doesn't do the manga justice. *sigh* I just finished collecting the manga so I probably won't be buying the 'graphic novels' due to lack of funds ^^;

I hope people buy it even though, in my opinion, the art style/character design isn't to my liking the first few volumes. It definately improves as the issues progress ^^

As for Fake, I haven't heard too much about it but I'm interested of course ^^

GRAVI!! *dances wildly* YES!!

02-06-2003, 10:21 PM
I really hope that they keep FAKE to the end. It's such a good story.

As for Gravi, I'm addicted. I saw the series and I had to see the manga. I have a few untranslated GN's, and I can't wait to see what is going on. it so spastic and beautiful like that.

02-07-2003, 01:48 PM
Eeh! I wanna read them! I never saw the shows, but I want to ;.;..

02-08-2003, 12:35 AM
