What changes have you noticed in manga releases over the last year and a half? Have YOUR manga-buying habits changed?
Well, this is something that Viz has done with the Naruto manga for quite some time now. Kind of irritates me but they've edited alot of the content to make it I guess more "kid friendly" or whatever. Examples are: absolutely no swearing whatsoever, even when it looks like that character wants to so badly (Hidan in volumes 35-37) and taking out cigarettes from the equation and there was this one scene which was like a yaoi/yuri sort of thing I suppose..THAT I can understand being edited sure, but taking out all the "bad language" to make it more appropriate is pointless considering all of the more graphic content was left in. I could be completely off base with my opinion that's fine I'm just telling it how I see it. I still did buy the volumes of Naruto to add to my collection, but what I forementioned above left me a little irritated.
