So! DPA4 and Adventure 1 came out last week in the US and Canada (and Australia maybe?)! Did everyone who could rush out and get them?
It was funny. I went in the day they came out and headed straight back to the kids manga section, only to find a floor clerk looking for DPA4. It wasn't there even though the computer said it was in the store. So together we scoped out general manga and teen manga before she went back to the kid who was looking for it and asked him if he wanted a rain check. I kept looking, and noticed a cart in the comic book section (which includes manga and, for some reason, game guides both video and tabletop RPG).
And the entire bottom row of the cart was DPA4 and Adventure 1. It kicked ass. So I called back to the kid that I'd found them, and then everyone was happy and it was awesome.
Anyway, wanted to share those notes with you. Post is mostly for thoughts on the volumes.
We knew already how Adventure 1 would go because hey, it's a reprint. I noticed some things though:
-They kept the Mickey Mouse reference that I thought for sure would go.
-Surge isn't identified as a Rocket just yet.
-They changed the font on the pokedex
And then there's DPA4...hahahaha oh man Cyrus how did you manage to break time in half without the Red Chain?( If anybody is going to break continuity, it's going to be him, right?Collapse )
But holy crap, yo, that battle was freaking awesome. And it's, of course, not over yet!
I have to admit that I was worried that they may stop with volume 5 (mostly due to thematic elements in 6), but it says "to be continued in volume 5", so that implies continuation *after* 5. Yaaaaay!
