+Voice Manga Adds... Voice to Manga!

+ posted by njt in Manga News on Jun 17, 2010 12:49

An interesting manga has taken form on the site Flex-comix.jp. Flex Comix presents a new addition to manga called +Voice (read: Plus Voice). Here's what it does: You click on a dialog bubble from their online reader and the character reads out that bubble!

I was a bit skeptical at first, but the voice actresses for their sample manga do a very good job! The plus side to this is, you don't have to listen to the characters you don't want to! Also, for translators that weren't sure *who* was saying what by having the voice added there's no mistaking it! Now if only more manga can have this...

For those who want to experience it, check out Musashi no sen no shimai!(The Sisters of Musashino Line!) [Hey, it's not my translation >.>;]

this is interesting I can understand RAW manga, even if I can't read kanji

This is great though the female voices are the same right? I didn't read it until the end....

But anyway I think it's a great idea, and probably a good lessons for translators or people who want to learn japanese, but I will stick to the regular format

Cheers for the idea though!

Interesting idea for the most part gives the people a option of hearing the voices to a manga. I hope to see more manga take this approach in the future.

It's not meant for me, now I hear voices which doesn't match the voices I thought them to have..

I hate when that happens.

i've thought about this concept after i read Ichigo and thouht it would revolutionize manga. Back then i said to myself that i'll make something like this and call it a Digital Manga. I didn't thought someone will make it a reality sooner than i thought it would be XD SUGOII!!!!

What bothers me of manga it's that i read too fast, or that i sometimes want to hear voices for a change, and with this it keeps me more attracted and also makes me go slower since the voices are doin the reading for me,

Amazing, I WANT MORE
