Pokemon: Black & White manga
« on: October 02, 2011, 23:55 »
Is the Pokemon: Black and White manga a chapter in Pokemon Special/Adventure or is it its own manga series?

It seems shorter volumes than other, following the games more than previous chapters and there's no mention of Adventures or Special in the title.

However, the main characters are still called Black and White and the drawing style seems the same...

Anyways, what do people think about it?

i should think it's part of Pokemon Adventures; it's just the Black and White chapter.

it's a good read yes :> strong characters and neat plot as expected

Yeah, it's part of Pokémon Adventures (look at the back of the cover, near the top). And it's AWFUL.
I suppose I've only read three volumes of it so far, but still... it's just horrible, and I don't think it can ever be fixed. The art is mostly sub-par (though I suppose that's to be expected from this series), the story - in the places where it differs from the game plot - is weird, the dialogue is depressingly bad, most of the characters are just... annoying... (especially Bianca)

My advice: Stay away. There are much better Pokémon manga series out there.

It doesn't seem to fit the rest of the arcs yet. White could be said to be a female Ruby but the link is weak. As for Black... Yeah I have nothing.

Honestly, after reading it a little closer, I don't find the plot or characters to be particularly different from the other arcs. I don't remember liking either features at the beginning any other time, but they do eventually grow on me.
Is the Pokemon: Black and White manga a chapter in Pokemon Special/Adventure or is it its own manga series?

I think they're published in a pokemon magazine instead of in their own volumes, which is why they might seem a bit smaller

((sorry for the necro I'll go away now))

How far have you got through the series? I'm on volume 2 and haven't been amazed... but have been hoping it picks up as it goes along. Let's not forget that each volume is really short so the story doesn't have as long to grab you per purchase.

Yeah, wth, cant believe that whole ferris wheel thing actually happened. I've only been able to get the manga in patches so I don't really have a cohesive grasp on it yet. One day I might just buy the books :P
