Howcome there are different versions of this? I checked out lots of sites and the volumes available in each site are in lots of different versions. For example, I checked volume 3 and 4 in a site and when I finished downloading, I see blue boxes as speech bubbles in the jpg files. I tried vol 1 and there weren't blue boxes and the font was different. I tried another site, downloaded vol 1 and the font was different and the things they say were similar, but not the same from the first site I checked. Can anyone tell me, if they download manga, why this is? Which version is fake, which is real?

Well, my guess is that the downloadable manga is fan-translated, and fan-edited. The real version should be the retail version!

Hi first of all welcome to the site.

Most versions online are scanlated, meaning fan groups provide their own translations of the Japanese version of the manga. So each scanlation group would tranlate the manga their own way. The only "real" version is the official Tokyopop translation which you can find in manga stores. I've also noticed that around the second half, a group scanned the Tokyopop version.

If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Thanks for the welcome, I think GTO is cool and funny too ^^

By the original version, do you mean the original Japanese version?

If you're talking about the manga in japanese then I know where you could get it through direct download, but it's not quite as straight forward as clicking a link. If its not what you're looking for then I can't really be bothered going through it so let us know :)

Sorry I was unclear I meant the original english version of the manga. A lot of the volumes have been edited by the fans.

Although I really advice you to buy the manga, for the best quality and experience, if you really want to download it, it's available here: http://www.boxtorrents.com .

Torrent files are a bit slow for me, but anyway I'm 15 and I don't have cash but when I get older and earn some cash I'll definitely buy it :)

When you get older and earn some cash it'll be out of print. :(
