If the latter, then that's a whole different thing. I could care less about the change itself, I was just curious why the change still isn't corrected. (Which, yes, I know has been answered before I even made the thread. I knew about the translation problems that come with L's and R's, I was wondering why Viz didn't correct it by now.)
Your question was fine. I meant that I also don't think Zoro to Zolo is really that big of a deal. I mean if you say it quick enough it sounds the same.

I explained why it hasn't changed. Because they've already been calling him Zolo and it would confuse the readers. Not only that but they aren't going to reprint the manga just for one letter and also if they just do it
for the new volumes it's going to be inconsistent.

I don't think they changed it back to Zoro yet and the reason why they haven't and probably wont until they rerelease the series in some manner, is consistency. They'd rather be consistently wrong then right only part of the time. May seem silly to us who want it accurate even if it's only part of the time but for people who prefer consistency it makes sense.
