There might be an unfortunate piece of news for the fans of Ousama Ranking. After Wit Studio created one of the best shows of this season so far, the popularity of the Ousama Ranking manga has also skyrocketed. But unfortunately, not much of the source material was translated back then. Adding to this is the fact that the Ranking of Kings manga is not as popular. Thus, there is quite a crunch when it comes to finding the right translation. But now, fans of the text are in greater turmoil than just this. So, what is the case with the discontinuation of the manga? Here is everything you need to know about the matter.
As the demand for Ousama Ranking Season 2 rises, fans are quickly turning to the manga for reference. There are some die-heart fans who cannot wait for a sequel. Thus, they read the manga instead. However, it was revealed this week that the Ousama Ranking Manga’s English Version was getting discontinued. Keep reading further to find out what went wrong.
Ousama Ranking Manga English Version Discontinued
On Thursday, March 31, 2022, E-Book publisher BookLive made an announcement revealing that they are going to discontinue the publishing of the English version of the Ousama Ranking manga. So far, BookLive has released the first seven volumes of the text already. This covered up to the first fifty chapters. But it turned out that the translations which the company had been releasing were not in sync with the gist of the story. In addition, there were other typographical errors in the translations.
After getting as many complaints, the company addressed the matter and decided to take action. The announcement came that all the books would go for a retranslation immediately. So now, none of the translations are either on the web or in the markets.
How Long Will The Break Last?
On this matter, the company reads out a statement. BookLive apologized for “spoiling the image” of the manga. However, the company has not said anything about how long this break will last. It is understandable that the manga will come back once all the 50 chapters get a new translation. Plus, a new team will translate the next chapters in line. This will certainly take two to three months of work.
Ousama Ranking Manga: When Is It Coming Back?
As of the time of writing, there is no update on when the manga is coming back with its English translation. The publisher has only officially said that Ousama Ranking Manga English Version will come back ‘as soon as possible.’ Thus, there is no tentative date on when we can hope to see the manga return. We will be sure to update this section as soon as there is more update on the same. Thus, stay in touch with The Anime Daily to keep updated with it.
