Thread: Why didn't Viz release the rest of Magical Pokemon Journey?

  1. #1

    Default Why didn't Viz release the rest of Magical Pokemon Journey?

    Anyone know? I know they and CY stopped it at around the same time, but CY went back to it later on and finished it up. Viz, despite a much larger market that wanted more variety, never did. It seems like such an obvious choice and yet they didn't make it.

    Maybe magical journey had bad sales and Viz Media dropped the translation because of it

    I doubt it would have sold much better in Singapore. Does anyone have the numbers on that?

    Magical Pokemon Journey was my favourite pokemon manga when I was young, but I noticed that the manga didn't seem to sell that well at my local bookstore back when it first came out. So if I had to guess, I'd say that the demand just wasn't there, perhaps due to how the manga was more shoujo oriented than shounen. ^^;

    Well, would anyone know the numbers or how to get them?
