    Re: WHAT HAS VIZ DONE!?!?!

    Earlier in this thread someone mentioned that Viz altered Neji's sign to an x.. Did they really? I remember reading it in a bookstore, and it had the original art (but there was a caption under the picture that said something like 'the sign on his forehead is a buddhist symbol').. D:

    Anyway, I do agree that Viz is pretty weird with the censorship - I saw the Greed cross thing, too. Just like '666 Satan' is 'O-Parts Hunter'.

    More errors I noticed in the Viz version:
    -Ling's name is spelled 'Lin'. But Arakawa spells it 'Ling Yao' on his prisoner tag..

    -In vol. 9, when Al barges into the hotel room with the newspaper: Edward says "Ed, you scared me". o_O This one pissed me off the most. It's so careless.

    -King Bladley's name is 'Bradley'. In ch. 75, Arakawa spells it 'Bladley' - though I heard some translators complain that the second person Lieutenant Hawkeye mentioned in her story was Rebecca, so is that a mistake on Arakawa's part? D:

    -I think Salim's name is 'Salem'. Again, in ch. 75, Arakawa reveals the actual spelling.

    About Neji's symbol.. Also in the anime they made it into an "X".. thats because, although its a buddahistic symbol, it was also the symbol of the German "Natiosocialists" aka Nazis. So in order not to offend any World War II victims and rise an uproar, they just altered it.

    Actually, it's not the Nazi symbol. It's similar, but it's not it.

    If you look at them both carefully, you'll see that the Nazi sign is actually a mirrored version of the Manji.. (is that what it's called?)

    well, that's what i learned in history, at least xD

    I don't remember exactly, but I think it's around 10 dollars.

    As far as I know, the cross thing is the -only- thing they've changed, so it doesn't really matter to me.

    As for Neji, it's a cross in both versions of the Anime. It's the manji in both versions of the manga. Viz changed it to a cross in Shonen Jump, but left it alone in the GN.

    The crucifixion thing is apparently covered, but I will say as an artist, that pisses me right the f*ck off. I'd never stand for that bs in a million years. I can understand the Barry the Chopper thing in the last volume, but... Arakawa could've always just put in a footnote how she messed up here. I remember other mangaka doing stuff like that (YuyuHakusho and Kenshin come to mind), addressing the reader with little notes. Editing out a couple pages of a volume that has four chapters of a manga kind of blows.

    Translation-wise, I cannot stand the translation of "Gate" to "Portal". Gate is such a cooler and more fitting word for what is most obviously a gigantic GATE.

    Kimbly was fine as the Crimson Alchemist. Red Lotus sounds inaccurate, cheesy, and has one more syllable- something i don't enjoy when reading are cumbersome, extra syllables.

    I don't like "Portal" either. It just feels wierd.
