i'm not sure if B.O.D.Y is being licensed...because if it was Dragonvoice wouldn't be scanlating =) i guess you just have to wait for it to be licensed by a company before you can purchase B.O.D.Y in english =)

uhm... chapter five can be accessed on the BODY project page on the DV website... but maybe you were talking about volume five? DV hasn't released chapters from that volume yet, so please wait for them. :]

as far as i know, BODY hasn't been licensed by english companies yet (or else DV would probably not be scanlating it). so the answer to your question is yes, the books are only available in japanese, and possibly chinese/korean...

First of all, please read the FAQ here http://dragonvoice.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=306 before you ask those types of questions. Smile

Okay, even if volume 5 came out in 2005, it's not likely that DV as a scanlation group can keep up with the manga's releases in japan... Scanlation is time-consuming work that makes it very difficult for scanlators to release translated and edited chapters as soon as they come out in japan; only with some extremely popular manga like naruto does this happen, thanks to extremely dedicated scanlation teams. It really shouldn't come as a surprise at all that DV is still working on volume 5 even though the manga has 9 volumes out in Japan; we have other things to do than to scanlate manga 24/7. Volume 5 and on will come out when DV is able to release them.
Among fans who don't read japanese/korean/japanese, it's common courtesy to wait patiently while scanlation groups work on chapters of manga/manhwa. Scanlators are all volunteers who do all this hard work for free and have school and/or jobs in addition to all the other things in their lives. If you really "can't wait" then go learn japanese and buy B.O.D.Y at http://www.nippon-export.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=24_33_825_2173. If you're unable to spend your own money to do that, then perhaps you could learn to edit and join DV; then you could help DV to release B.O.D.Y. as fast as you would like.

I apologize for sounding so bitchy and ornery. I just wanted to make it clear that scanlators are not required to release chapters super-quickly. Please be patient. Thanks! :]

@moofii: Thanx for clarifying that for the ignorant ones...

Chapter 1 of volume 5 was partially translated before the translator quit, but was kind enough to hand it she had done. I'm trying to get the rest translated, which will hopefully be soon, but yeah if you want faster releases please help out with translating it from japanese. Otherwise I hope you'll be patient and we'll release BODY as soon as we have the chapters ready.
