A French translation of the Black & White chapter has been produced separately in France by publisher Kurokawa. Unlike the VIZ Media versions, which are slimmer than a typical volume and only contain three or four rounds, the French versions are a more typical volume size and contain about eight rounds each.

The first of these volumes was published in September 2011 with subsequent releases until the release of Volume 9 on October 9, 2014.
