Viz's new look...

Has anyone else noticed that viz is reprinting some of they're old mangas in a smaller (like tokyopop) size and a cheaper price? I saw the new Inuyasha and Ranma 1/2 new look, and I must it's very nice. Now I don't have to pay like 15 to 20 dollars for viz's stuff now. I can get Ranma for like 10 bucks now! Very nice. ^_^

Ahhh they're sizing them down? Good. It always bothered me to see those huge volumes of Fushigi Yuugi and Ranma. ^_^;; Especially for those prices! I'm too used to the nice little sizes of Japanese manga.

ditto. I wish they'd stuck with the original format for series they were already more than 3 books into or something. I have to rebuy all of Ranma because I can't have my bookshelf looking so off. I like houw the Tokyopop ones look since they typically match each other and that'll be nice for the Vix ones. I just hate that the hundreds of dollars I already spent are basically gone.

Hopefully I can work out a trade at my comic shop, old book for new one. It depends on what the selling price will be for the older volumes. If it's equal or more than the new ones, we can just swap hopefully. That way I'll only be loosing $5 per volume, instead of $15.

I'll be buying the Big O Manga 1st volume when it gets resized. It's a good thing that Viz is doing it now, but it finally showed them that Tokyopop was kicking their ass in the manga side of things.

Oh well. I too am glad they are resizing and enjoy the new covers and all. I went into Waldenbooks on Friday and was so surprised to see two whole bookcases full of just manga. It was so sweet to see.

Does this go for Viz's PULP manga series' too? Because I've been buying Uzimaki (sp?) and I'm almost broke.

I think Pulp is owned by viz.

I don't know if they are resizing all of their manga, just Inuyasha and ranma for now and any new series coming out (like one piece, yu-gi-oh, etc.).
