Thread: Greg: Teacher of SUPER " OP " course !

    Canadian dollar prices are about 1.25 higher than US ones in general (it fluctuates depending on the day.) So a 25$ item going up to about 31 or 32$ is within the exchange rate.

    Add in international taxes or bank fees....

    I know my american bank charges me about a dollar every time I pay for 12$ canadian netflix so it coming out to about 35$ Canadian sounds about right.

    How much do you guys pay for volumes? They used to say for about 7-8 usd here over a decade ago, but most places had ”get 4 for the price of 3”. Had they still been around the price may have been higher as that’s how inflation goes.

    Anyone remember what you also paid back then for a volume, in addition to the price today?

    An average manga volume in Portugal should cost around 9 to 10 euros. Bear in mind that the minimum wage here is less than 600 €/month and housing prices have risen through the roof in the last few years since the crisis ended. And that electricity and gas prices are the absolute 3rd highest in the entire EU. Living costs here are ridiculous.

    Do they sell English translated volume or French one?
    If the bulk of the sales are French translated volumes, then they may think it futile to promote digital WSJ.
    But that being said, i don't understand what's stopping them to make the digital copies accessible worldwide. Even if only a handful of people from a country subscribe it, they still make the business.
    The volumes are translated in French.

    If they promoted WSJ and eventually translated it in French (it certainly wouldn't be hard finding competent and passionate translators) I'm sure it would be a blast. France is the second biggest consumer of manga in the world (behind Japan obviously).
    As you said, I can't think of any outcome where they don't make profit.

    I'm surprised it's that expensive! In France the price of an average volume (say OP or MHA) is 6,9€
    While the minimum wage is almost double

    It depends on the manga. A Naruto or One Piece '3-in-1' (three volumes sandwiched in one book) goes about $12 in Amazon India. That's roughly $ 4 per volume. Sometimes it can be even cheaper if a seller is giving rebate. It can even go down further by 10%-15% when a bank is giving special cash back for purchasing through it's credit/debit card on Amazon. A single volume goes about $ 5- $ 8 depending on older or newer.
    I bought box-set of "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" in $50 couple of years ago. The same box-set is now on sale for $40.
    On the other hand a single Kindachi volume goes about $100+ .

    P.S: All values are in estimated conversion from Indian Rupees to US Dollar.

    the problem in France is that all jumps titles are owned by different editors. I suppose that's why we are not allowed to access English viz jump because that is illegal wrt editors which have bought the rights.
    So far only a few titles have a translation immediately but it's 1€ per chapter which is to expensive.

    otherwise i rather agree with access timeco analysis. Not everyone is as much dedicated into a serie as Greg or Redon. Sure we like one piece and we enjoy discussing it here but without the scanlation we wouldn't be here. So yes now the legal offers are better than before and that is for the best, for us and for the authors

    I actually haven't thought about checking Amazon in modern times. Though, since I don't have it in my country I will always have to pay some or shipping. But would feel weird to have all the books in my native language and then all in English; the collection would not be aesthetically pleasing :(

    I could probably get behind an anual or monthly fee for manga, as long as it isn't pricey and then not feel any shame about pirating old chapters (if they weren't included in the subscription).

    Same in Dubai, 6.91 Euro for raw volumes and 10.73 Euro for VIZ English translated volumes.

    subscribing to shonen jump doesnt give you access to a backlog of issues, so if you wanted to catch up on something you'd have to read scans.

    It is around 2.38 Euro more expensive than the U.S. price(comparing the same bookstore, Kinokuniya) which is like 3 euros more than the amazon price

    Greg do you think there will ever be a will of D power up? Or is that just bad writing?

    like the super Saiyan transformation of the One Piece world?

    Hey Greg, have you noticed if the jump to Wano after Reverie was as iffy with Japanese fans as it seems to be with Western fans? Have you gotten any impressions about the Wano chapters at all so far?
