Marketing. Not insulting America or anything, I just found out that the covers were different, so I made a comparison thingy... Why would this be an insult? Because Americans want some context beyond just "random pretty girl"?

First I got confused because I couldn't understand why the japanese version would write their cover in english, the I realized, I don't know the difference between left and right...

Because the americunts bothered making a decent cover instead of going "moshi mosi, generic cover №28 832 desu". Well, atleast it's a bit less generic.

To be fair the U.S. version could show her charm a little more.    
   
She's not exactly an ugly zombie.   
   
But the U.S. versions definitely look a lot cooler.

i'd rather be mocking the japanese covers because of how simplistic they are. that's all it takes to lure customers to purchase these? just a normal girl? pretty ridiculous

Makes sense. We like to make sure the cover of something matches the material inside...most of the time. Seriously, what the **** was up with GoW3's box art. The right was what we were supposed to get. The left is what we got.

Japanese Version: Placing a joyful tone on a morbid subject. Like Tarantino playing pop songs while a guy's ear gets cut off.

American Version: Yes, this is definitely that zombie manga you were looking for. Also, some of these covers (like #2) will make you really uncomfortable once we start talking about her ****** up relationship with her father.

Both are valid

The last one:
Apparently the US amputate when a simple bandage does it in Japan.

Not really just US cover its the translated English version.

Weirdly enough I only just bought the first book the other day.

I liked America's covers better...

Japan doesn't advertise what is inside a product or series. This is the exact opposite of how America operates: we like to know what to expect from it.
