Great manga, poor publication

by -

I really enjoy Whispered Words and would highly recommend it. However, I had not heard of One Peace Books before, and it is apparent that they did not really spend adequate time/resources for this series (all 3 volumes).

I would say the translation is sub-par; it has a few more typos than you would expect from an official release, but not terrible. The worst, though, is by far the lettering. The original Japanese is sometimes left in the speech bubbles, with the translation next to it. This was baffling and distracting. Font sizes often seem a bit off (usually too small), lines are occasionally in the wrong spot/bubble or duplicated, words are sometimes cut off, and a few lines were missing.

Overall it is still very readable but the quality makes it somewhat confusing and distracting. Volume 2 also has an unrelated sidestory and one-shot at the end without any warning or explanation, and seemed oddly tacked-on.
