Man, there was a good bit of stuff that I had to correct this chapter. I mean, I get it when it still holds the original meaning, but then there's lines that just change what it's saying entirely. For example, after Jubei gets his license stolen, the old guy says "This time's auction is a special auction for the sake of renewing one's merchant license", but in the CPM version, he says "So you'd be advised to hurry, sir.". I mean, that's just wrong because that line implies that merchants have to regularly prove their worth by constantly bringing back valuable items to sell which helps build the world and stuff. There's also that Kido Kuratchazu (no idea) part they omitted and had it just as "security police" IIRC. However, that's understandable because even I don't know what they mean by that. They also said just "SP" with no given meaning, but it's obviously Security Police, so I added a little * to let readers know.
However, Kido Kuratchazu is their title so it does hold meaning. Also, this license stuff reminds me of HxH. When is Jubei going to appear in HxH as a commeranee hunter or something? I need that reference. Anyhow, they had Afro's name as "Afra" for some reason even though it literally says afro. Get it? Because he has an Afro? At any rate, there is a few other things, but there's no need to list them all. Enjoy the chapter, and I'll see you next time. See ya!
Thus brings us to the end of volume 01 out of 06. Hmm. Well, I hope you enjoyed it. However, I'll be working on more Jubei next and I'll have to make a start on Armitage The Third #2 soon. On that, I've still to watch the compilation movie which has a different dub cast and the sequel movie, too. I'm sure I'll get around to it months from now like always. Anyhow, the volume release will be coming soon, too. Just wanna check over it and see if there's anything that needs fixing. There's the chapter titles for chapter 3 which I accidently left out, and a line or two when they're talking about Rtou in chapter 2. At any rate, do enjoy. Bai bai!
Yup, it's time for more Jubei. And if you're wondering what this volume is about, Jubei returns to the merchant city of the world to auction off an item only to face off against an old adversary. Simple as that, but it looks good. I think. Well, the ending's a bummer, but you'll see eventually. Also, the CPM TL was downright absurd at times with entire lines re-written and translated wrong. An example would be where they had Dejima as being "an island that controls the world's economy" when what it actually said was that it "controlled the world behind the scenes". Both of which are two different things entirely. There was also "very seldom do we seen an s-class item" and Grill calling Jubei a fool at the very end when he said "it's over".
And when Jubei makes his entrance, a man says "Have you heard of his latest adventures?" even though he says "Then, he's selling today's other item?" I mean, that's just embarrassing and it reminded me of that awful DBZ manga TL where Yamcha randomly asks about the Dragon Ball radar or something. Just no. Anyway, my complaints aside, there is a bunch other things I could complain about like various minor things here and there I had to change, but I would go on forever. Last thing, there was a few cameos like Sailor Moon and the Pringles logo among other things this chapter... for some reason. Enjoy the chapter. See ya!
