One of my friends got the first issue in the mail (a bunch of us subscribed at AXNY). She says it's great, plus it came with a great Yu-gi-oh card (alternate art Blue Eyes White Dragon). I'm anxiously awaiting it to work it's way through the campus mail system! Also, unlike the dub, they kept all of the YGO character names, yea! I hate when dubs / manga translations change names.

When I went to Suncoast awhile back I got a free preview magazine of Shonen Jump, and exept for Yu Yu Hakusho, it didn't really interest me.

I love it so far myself! Really cool that the YGO manga is a bit more violent then the show, the YYH manga rocked as well as DBZ and Sandland was pretty cool too!

I've loved the One Piece anime for awhile so I was so happy to read the manga ^_^ It's very cool.

I picked up a sample issue from the Metreon Festival of Anime and it looks promising - my brother loved it! Maybe I'll get him a subscription for Christmas =D

=D funny thing is...the US Shounen Jump was on Today's morning news here in Tokyo. the funniest thing they said afterwards:

"wow, it's there...you think it'll be popular there as it is here? Dunno, can't tell from those Americans"

Rinkun - lol XD

And yeah, I *think* I saw it at Suncoast. If so, it was the preview issue. The preview issue annoyed me, I know I shouldn't be surprised but I was bugged that they were focusing on the action, just putting in random scenes that they thought would sell the series to little boys. That would NOT have been the scene from Shaman King I'd have picked to encourage people to read it . . .

I keep thinking, I really ought to get a subscription, but I keep forgetting! It's going to take them so long before they catch up with where I was in Shaman King . . . (like, chapter 60.)

Kirby - You can change it if you want, lol. Oh yeah and remind me to ask you if you can make me a gif. Oh wait, I'm asking you now, aren't I? >_<

X3 they did an "indepth report" last night. i recorded it. if i know how to get video from VCR onto comp, i'll do it, but this is what they said

"In America, people read from left to right, whereas in Japan, we read right to left, however in Shounen Jump USA, they read right to left like us"

::interview random American business guy::

"Americans will find it weird to read it that way"

::interview retail guy::

"Dragonball Z and Yu-Gi-Oh! is the most popular series here in america for young people. as soon as they ask for the cards, we show them the Shounen Jump."

::interview business guy::

"Because some titles we have are popular, we add in new ones to make them known for America as well"

::back to Japanese people::

"unlike Japan's Shounen Jump, American Shounen Jump has 75% less pages then the Phone book size of Japanese. plus it's really expensive. whereas Japan's Shounen Jump is only 200 Yen ($1.50), American shounen Jump is $4.50 (500 Yen)"

::enter other Japanese newscaster::

"wow, it's that expensive?"

"yea, those Americans love to spend their money"

"but so do we"

"ok, onto other news, Enix buys Squaresoft"

X3
