As happy as I am to see it on a digital platform my heart sank when I saw it was the awful Tokyopop translation. Really hope they can address this because I don't see myself buying it in this state, and if they're translating the remaining 10 volumes they'll likely use the correct names and create inconsistency...unless they think people want "Tak" and "Iggy" again.

The fact that they seem to have retranslated Beck but not this is disappointing.

EDIT: Volumes 34-38 do have the proper names. That's really inconsistent.

Yeah, the burning question was if they re-translated all of the TP volumes, and it seems its not the case at the moment. >.>

"Yo! Tak!" Man, I'm sure glad they didn't use Japanese names. Otherwise I'd be offended.

Nah, for real though. A re-translation would have been much appreciated but something tells me Comixology probably didn't even know about the unfortunate history this series has had to endure in North America. But I'm glad it's available for Unlimited.

I'd probably have bought the original manga if its translation wasn't so butchered.

I still would, with a proper translation and physical copies.

So essentially, I doubt I'll ever be buying it.
