Legend of Chun Hyang

(1/5) > >>

Chara:


So I bought this bunkobon. The Legend of Chun Hyang is one of the only CLAMP titles I haven't read, but when I got home and searched it up I realized it was licensed by TOKYOPOP. I don't think I've ever seen it on shelves, but it was licensed in 2004 and is still in print.

I don't want any more licensed projects but at the same time, it being done by TOKYOPOP is the #1 reason why I wouldn't buy and read Chun Hyang in English.

Is there any interest in scanlating it?

Waterlily:
It's been fully scanlated by CLAMP no Lumiere, I don't know if they're still distributing it but check mangatraders or some other site. You might find it under the name Shin Shunkaden, too.

Chara:
Has it really all been done by CLAMP no Lumiere? From what I know, all they did is the drama CD insert manga, and I was always confused about why they were listed as having done the whole manga for it.

Waterlily:
The full length of Tokyopop's English edition is 232 pages, 3 chapters, and the scanlations cover the same (3 chapters, or more like 2 chapters and 1 mini-chapter). I guess that means there's nothing more to scanlate, if CLAMP have really dropped it (wouldn't mind the odd Chun-Hyang vignette now and then, though).

dragonspirit:
Clamp no Lumiere scanlated only Shin Shunkaden - A Lunchtime Story and that project really is completed, but they've never done the whole thing.

The only thing I've seen around was scanlation made out of English translation of Polish translation, made of Tokyo Pop translation, and poor quality Chinese raws.
I've read both Polish and English edition, and I must admit that the second one was just too literal. Not to mention that someone just put it together with scans, not editing it.

I really would like to see Chung Hyang in proper quality, because the manga is definitely worth it.
