I've never understood why Kodansha never went back in the reprintings and fixed the major errors.  My copies of the smaller volumes still have "Spark Ring Pressure" and "Princess Beryl" instead of Queen Beryl.



And then there are just mistakes. My favourite one is from Daiya, where the subber (this is CR) seems to have given up on the line, because the sub says, "what does he say?" What the character actually says is something like, "he held down the inning without conceding a run" or something on those lines, and it's pretty clearly audible even with the background noise. But I feel like that was a note for them to come back to it and they didn't and it accidentally got through.



The first time I watched that episode I thought I missed Eijun's line instead of Kanemaru's because I  was still having trouble distinguishing voices when characters spoke off screen. 

I've lost count how many times the CR subs switch the name order back and forth between Japanese order and Western order even though the characters are always using Japanese order (except the American team but that's a another issue.)

I don't mind if translators use Japanese order or English order for names, just pick one and be consistent with it.

Kodansha never did fix those errors for the regular editions? Oh man, why?? I could understand if they were just tiny typos or nitpicky things, but...

I forgot about "Princess Beryl". Not sure how they managed THAT one, her name is completely in English to begin with...! "Spark Ring" I can see where they got that one from, the problem is that somehow no one caught in the QC stage.. but "Princess Beryl"... How...

edit: ooh, I did just find [this](http://missdream.org/editorials/sailor-moon-kodansha-release-vol-2-errors/), which suggests they were going for something along the lines of "Princess [Serenity], I am Queen Beryl.." etc etc... that'd make sense, but how in the heck did they end up botching it up into "Princess Beryl"? o.O

I can't even remember what the last manga I read was. I think Noragami..?

Although I do occasionally check on "You own my all" Manhua.
Quote
Third Prince Jing Shao was victorious in war and always surrounded by countless beauties. However, he was wrongly framed and lost everything. Yet the only person who followed him was the unfavoured male concubine that he neglected for years…… After his reincarnation, Jing Shao decided to start afresh and chase after his male wife. Although it seems things will not go as planned, chasing a wife is harder than he thought!


It's based off the Chinese BL novel "The wife is First". It's actually a pretty good story but the manhua is  more PG, whereas the novel is less censored.

That's really interesting.  I never thought about Queen Beryl addressing Princess Serenity and it changing somehow to Princess Beryl when it was translated.


I am so far behind on the manga I want to read. :(  I thought I'd be caught up on Takane and Hana by now since the final volume will be released in the US next month. 

Also ran in to a Daiya spoiler

I've been rereading Yona! I rewatched the series and started on the manga again today. I still get so sad reading

On Yona,

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I also found vol 32 although I haven't read it properly yet, just skimmed it, since I'll read it properly in sequence with the others when I get there. There are some interesting things in it. I have many thoughts.

I also realised I had got 35 but not 36 and so I ordered that today along with the missing volume I have for Daiya Act II. 37 comes out around Christmas in Japanese. The English volumes are almost caught up O.O.

You're making me want to reread 1-31. :D I still need to read 32. I keep hoping I'll be able to relax enough to sit down and read the story.

No rush on 32. :D  33 comes out next month in the US and I might wait until I have both of them to catch up.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.


Just for fun I looked up the  English Daiya digital volumes (they're only published that way now and not in actual book form)  and they are at the Seidou vs Oya game.

So I got to rereading vol 29 of Yona, but since vol 29 annoys me a bit for reasons, I ended up skimming through the rest of the chapters I had on hand, with reading bits and pieces along the way. I'm going back to read it properly, but vol 36 came out of quarantine this morning so...

I'm not caught up exactly but I'm semi-caught up. And I'm afraid I still feel like someone needs to give Keishuk a good slap. I felt that right at the start and I still feel it 30+ volumes on.
