English translationsEdit

Crystal Jewels MiniZ has been licensed for English translation by three different companies: Manga Media, located in the United States, Ching Yi, located in Singapore, and BangBang Power Asia, also located in Singapore.


Beginning in June 2000, MangaMedia supports Ching Yi to translate Kurisutarujueru ChibiZ to Crystal Jewels MiniZ in English. In October 2000, the magazines were released: the first 10 chapters monthly/$2 and then currently monthly/$2.50. The original translation were released in left-to-right format like the graphic novel, and so does the hardcover. In March 2005, the manga begans to release in right-to-left format.

In May 2006, MangaMedia starts publishing Crystal Jewels MiniZ in English and on stores. There are several scenes that have been edites, like in Volume 1 Chapter 12, which Daigo yells out a curse word and changes it to "jerk!"; and which in Volume 12, Kaigona wore a black shirt and black pants, and her chest were bigger, which was edited to her white shirt and decreases her chest size. In Volume 19, Emma punches Lucas,but edited to Emma shoves Lucas.

June 2009, MangaMedia began re-releasing the series beginning from Volume 1. Rather than just reissue the previous translations, Manga Media opted for a "second edition" - these volumes feature a new translation, with the right-to-left artwork and all of the content omitted from the previous translation restored. However, the new translation still follows closely to the original translation, containing some of the same dialogue and all the same titles for the rounds, as well as a lack of names of characters. In addition, these second editions contain edits not found in the first edition
