The "varient" of 35th looks like the Traditional Chinese version.

If you're talking about the colors, it could come from the printer.

Original Japanese Kodansha 33th volume :

I first thinked the french version was darker but when I saw the Japanese version, it's the same. The picture above is just ligher.

I know the American version have no cover in common with the Japanese version. Our French publisher (Kazé) respect the original cover BUT for the 3rd volume, we got an alternative cover. It's the only one for the moment. I don't know if alternative cover really exist for the Japanese version.
