Nyo... I forgot about this... TokyoPop finaly released Blame! ENGLISH version!!
http://www.tokyopop.com/dbpage.php?propertycode=BLM&categorycode=BMG

There are only 2 volumes out by now, but better than nothing...
Volume 03 will be out 28. 02. 2006 and Volume 04 by 30. 05. 2006... damn, it takes them 2-3 months to release one vol...

Nyo... this took LONG time... but we can hope more fans will be attracted now when there is english translation on paper... :!:

Oh yeah, there is also SNIKT! translated... i dont get it how come it came now, when it uses Xman - american characters...
Whatever...

Snikt has been out since 2003.

It's really good, I own all 5 books. Don't diss Wolverine, Nihei loves him (as said in one of the issues I believe).

Glad to hear that volume 2 is available now. I'll have to get my hands on it somehow.

The current descriptions for volumes 3 and 4 are a bit worrying, though. It looks like whoever wrote them got the city they've dubbed "Cluster Town" (the Capitol, I'm guessing) mixed up with the Megastructure. Referring to the Megastructure as a town is sort of like calling the sea a really big puddle…

Ouch, I hope they don't ruin it. They should have just hired Omanga.

I have both volumes.

From what I recall, they are very similar. No weird edits either.

I have the first two as well, but there's nothing that they could have really screwed up yet.

We will just have to wait until they release the rest. I can't wait...gosh Tokyopop is taking every three months to release each book. We won't reach the end util 2007. Then we can resume our complaints about translations! 8)

As far as I know BLAME! Vol 3 is gonna be released on Feb 7 2006 not Feb 28.
It could have been pushed back but Feb 7 is the date thats on TokyoPop's site.

I want V.3 pretty bad, I own the japanese, but the translation online is flipped. It will be nice to add to my collection. 8)

I both like and hate the tokyopop translations.

They destroyed one of the best sections of volume 4.
The scene with Cibo and the Controller talking (IN COLOR.. mind you)
has been reduced to black and white which destroys the great presence of it.

Yup', Glenat did the same for the French edition :cry:
AFAIK color pages cost a lot more, well, may too much for 6 of 'em.

And all volumes were MIRORED! :cry:

Awesome Sig and Avatar. I have Blame! Issues 1 to 5 in english. Haven't been to chapters in a while so i wonder if they came out with some more english issues. I read all of the issues in english already, SO I know what happens. Killy really matures later on... If that maks sense.
