Crystal Hunters: natural Japanese version and more!

There were a lot of really enthusiastic people commenting that they wanted our manga to have more natural Japanese in it. Well, ask and ye shall receive! Here is the natural version of our manga!
Natural Japanese Version

Since it’s in natural Japanese, it doesn’t really fit into a JLPT category, but it’s roughly N4-N3 with a few words you’ll need a dictionary for. It’s a nice intermediate step in between the beginner stuff and regular manga.

Ah yeah. That one comes across a whole lot better.

I think this could have passed as the original rendition. Much better and more realistic to how Japanese manga text looks. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a manga for absolute beginners, like what the speech in the original CH was trying to do. I admire how your team took criticism well. Wishing you good luck with this project.


Thanks! We’ll try to keep the quality high!
