The following are known bootleg items. There are also quite a few bootleg mangas in Korea and Thailand, so please reference our list for items in those languages that are official, along with our buyer beware list. Please don't support the companies who make bootlegs and buy an official or fan-made item instead!
There are no official English or Thai subtitles! Any Ginga DVD that claims to have these subtitles is a bootleg, and often have terrible subs. You can view the official non-Japanese releases here.
The only official Thai manga is Byakuren no Fang, everything else is bootleg. Korea also has a lot of bootleg mangas, however there are official publications. Be sure to pay attention to minor differences in covers, and of the publishing company. You can view the official non-Japanese / non-Nordic releases here.
