I have the Japanese volume 1 of naruto manga and I have the American translation. The american translation is thicker(I suppose from thicker paper) but the weird thing is the pages are about 15 percent larger its like they decided to blow the images up 15% for america... Does anyone know why they make the images larger when they port it over to america?
