    Oh my god, HELL NO! The essence of the story/plot or whatsoever will vanish.. unless they have good translators..Why not just leave it be?

      That’s why they’re looking for good translators. It’s not like being a professional translater is an easy peasy profession.

      Uhh why not? it’s still is a good thing not to mention it’s way cheaper… now I can start collecting mangas from the very first volume cause it’s really hard getting a complete set…

      If that’s how you think about it, then just don’t read it! Stupid.

    I’ve said this on Deremoe and on Facebook posts on this, but I would have honestly wanted affordable, English-translated volumes to be published and distributed by Philippine publishers like Psicom (which is the closest we can get to bringing Japan goods to PH). But Tagalized manga is fine, too (it’s just that I’m a bit slow when reading/writing Filipino).

    Considering that the original manga itself doesn’t have a formal tone in Japanese, the Tagalog translation would also be colloquial, right? It would be weird to see stiff/deep/formal Filipino in this kind of literature.

  5. This is actually a good idea, I don’t know to some, but hey, it think it will be interesting to read it in Tagalog. (Got to write more on my stand about this on my blog. Hahaha.) I’m now excited to read and write a review on the finish product!
