    I support Oh great by buying the Japanese volumes, I still need to pick up vol.15 :O but.. I was thinking of getting the del rey english versions but after I saw that they did to Simca on the cover of Vol.2 I am not so sure I want too anymore. The only benefit I can see of getting them is buying them to lend them to friends so they can get into it.

    Shut the fuck up. I just bought the 3rd volume from Del Ray and I didn't notice any censorship placed in. This volume had the infamous Simca/Ringo bathroom scene, not to mention Ikki's grabbing of Simca's honkers and they retained it completely. Not to mention that the translation is faithful enough to the original, plus they retain the japanese-specific jokes and explain it at the end.

    My only qualm with the Del Ray issues are, at times, the text gets too small to be easily read. Still readable, but you gotta stress a bit to do so.

    Feel free to purchase the Del Ray translations. I don't see anything wrong with them.

    Also: Please stop talking out of your ass, mmkay?

    Actually thats the only censorship to the graphics and it was very minor as far as I'm concerned.

    finally got the 1st and 3rd volumes from Tanoshimi, i think i perfer the fansubs but thats mainly cause i got used to their translations, also i did notice the slight censorship of a few things. but the only thing that really annoyed me was NO colour inserts, what the hell is up with that. i mean why is it that england has to get colourless volumes even though we probably pay more for them. that doesnt seem fair, why the hell do they change things like that? i think i'm gona email and ask

    Don't worry about that. They give you the full cover (just not colored) on the second page. Truthfully I don't know why they had to, but the american company that does the ratings and what needs to be censored saw that it needed to be, oh well. But like someone said before there is practically no censorship done to the actual translation and art.

    But I bought it for the story, not the naked chicks.
