I read that thread just for the sake of it, but to my surprise people from the industry Vertical Inc actually replied on the thread.
Vertical talked talked about how they seek experience on retouching and text placement and stuff. The first thing that goes to my head “Wow, they sure talk the talk BUT not walk the walk”. I never buy any of their stuff but i was really considering buying their Gundam the Origin before i read this review Utsubora the story of novelist review.
I was seriously thought of bulk buying Gundam the Origin 5 vols at a time (vol.5 was release late last month) to save on the shipping but i really hesitant now. From the Utsubora review not only they release badly typeset manga with wonky test placement (i do personally hate that font anyway) but also bad translation. That pretty much a double whammy.
P/S Vertical said they wont hire and will let go if found people who has history in scanlation because they doubt their ethics. My thought, maybe their quality would be better if they actually hire one but DMG still suck even to other publisher eyes (read the thread). I guess it’s all about quality control and how much love you have on your product.
Conclusion: I should take it easy and buy one vol. at a time (but once i start i shall collect them all, i’m pokemon trainer after all let catch em’all!).
The future of me getting this Origin looks brighter after reading Mobile Suit Gundam Origin review and took sneak peek at the book from various video in youtube (they don’t use that god awful fond). Probably getting it when i collect my order at bookstore (whenever that arrives). Buying it out from shelve is pricey compared to buy in bulk but it a start.
