Well I was doutbing to start a serie on this. The one shot was great, and the first chapter was something on that line. I wonder what yoma will come up later on, maybe some good guys and villains?

But first chapter was indeed promising, though I liked the one shot a little more

I havent read the one shot but i do love this series it looks like it could evolve into something big :) but only time will tell i guess >.< lets just hope it gets more then 10 chapters >_>

Maxy Barnard
May 24, 2007, 05:49 AM
essentially put, this is the best opening chapter in WJ in a long long time. gotta love everything about it, whether it's tokio or just how catoblepas looks, to the next best use of the term yoma since claymore. pure brilliance

tsukai and p2 may be great now, but neither opened with such brilliance

and i doubt itll flop at 10 chapters. only M&Y (*sniff*) and jumbor (meh) were that unloved. and hands. but hands was just terrible.

juUnior
May 24, 2007, 01:02 PM
I agree with Indiana_Mcemo, it's really good opening chapter for the story, really good I mean. I really loved acually that first chapter, and hope it will be as good as that in next chapters. Compared to that other new title in Shonen Jump, it's much mich better ;p

Hope to see more from Hitomi no Catoblepas :D

Koen

I'd like to start reading this...but I haven't seem anything that'd make me want to start. Usually a panel showing something striking, or a page perhaps...that's what could possibly get me involved.

Would anyone post a good page from the chapter?

Heh. You know, I'm sure you could have chosen a better page than that.

Personally, I think 36 would have been an awesome choice. But then, anyone who read my translation could tell you that :p

But seriously, just read the chapter. ~_~

Koen
May 26, 2007, 05:43 AM
Well first, I was too lazy to look for a page, and doubles are mostly good ones. And second I think you should give it a try by reading the whole chap

chapter 2: was as expected a bit introducing chap but ended with a new villain

ah okay, my mistake (ToC and weekly scan dump -> the two threads that I always check for the weekly shounen jump series)
[hr]
well, it seems like a new character is introduced, and based on my first impressions: his powers remind of roy mustang (fma) and I doubt of him being bad though I am not sure

Gamabounta
June 07, 2007, 03:58 PM
Well it's crystal clear that he's an ally.

The first chapters are good. I'm not as awesom-ed as reading Bleach #001 or One Piece #001 but I like the background, etc.

Btw, do anyone know where I can find the "pilot chapter" scanlated ? It had been published by WSJ some months ago.

June 07, 2007, 04:25 PM
I uploaded it a while back. Check the RTS thread for the first chapter.

this mangas already beyond awesome. and the first three chapters prove that beyond a doubt. gotta love Tokio's skill with catoblepas, and the ability of his eye

yeah there's really a story, and it's already being outlined now. Often such a things can take long. So there are four families that are all from one famous (damned forgot the term). One is introduced now, and he has a cool youma if you ask me
[hr]
another good thing: the story evolves fast - we already saw a third family member at the end

well fire birds arent exactly a rare occurence, phoenix's anyway?
anyway a bit of a slip in speed this week, with the third being shown at leat 2 chapters too fast for me, but i guess a split into two scenarios could work for timelines sake

People should know by now to go to the RTS section to get the latest chapter.

Maxy Barnard
July 01, 2007, 02:13 PM
yeah. seems HnC will be in RTS till the end. what was the last series to manage that?

anyway, latest chapter.... i wont say spoilers till a few days of it being scanlated, but some great developments, puns, and characters shown. this is indeed one of the best jump series around!

xi0
July 01, 2007, 05:17 PM
Who knows when HnC will end though?

If Blue Dragon is indeed ending, I think it'll be the first series at MH to have an RTS thread for every chapter.

Maxy Barnard
July 02, 2007, 01:16 PM
ah true! i forgot about BDRG. i suppose it deserves a nod for that level of popularity.....

but i see HnC as getting a good ranking........... NEXT WEEK?!
already? wow. or the week after that. either chap 8 or 9 methinks

July 06, 2007, 07:57 AM
Thanks. It looks interesting, hope that it will become a classic like Bleach.

Koen
July 06, 2007, 02:13 PM
Well was I happy to be able to read HnC in budapest in an internet cafe (damned qwertz - hungarian board - /me used too azerty). New main villains (sheadows mainly) introduced, more background about tokio his brother,... This manga has potential

Maxy Barnard
July 07, 2007, 03:27 PM
I really think that we're gonna have a sotr of 'muhyo style' villain thing going on in the way of tokio's brother. presuming he reappears.

Koen
July 08, 2007, 04:47 AM
I really think that we're gonna have a sotr of 'muhyo style' villain thing going on in the way of tokio's brother. presuming he reappears.

Well the new villain has strange eyes for sure. That old hag getting behind the back of our three members without them noticing it is an element that there will be stronger opponents and maybe faster than tokio but we'll see that

but tokio his borther is indeed an element for later on

Maxy Barnard
July 09, 2007, 01:15 PM
I think it's safe to assume that we're approaching the main storyline now, with all the elements converging to form sides. and with one more person to be introduced later to the good guys, we have a lot to look forward to. although the latest chapter had a bum panel on one page (all heaeds looked weird. look for it :D)

ryusuke_
July 09, 2007, 02:04 PM
I think that 4th guardian will become evil...

Maxy Barnard
July 09, 2007, 02:16 PM
that seems too predictable. besides, if anyones the 'loose cannon' type, it the firebird man

Koen
July 09, 2007, 02:43 PM
I don't think that the 4th head will be an evil guy. He'll be a good guy, but I wouldn't be suprised if he's talentous or maybe an oldie (in contrast to our other three). What's possible is the fact that there will be family members having an allience with youma (eg tokio his brother)

BTW that evil guy has the same eyes (star) of tokio's brother, or is he the brother?

Maxy Barnard
July 09, 2007, 06:31 PM
his face looks like tokio's, so its a safe assumption
different name denies that though

cnet128
July 10, 2007, 08:46 AM
I'd say it's pretty damn safe to say that Tenma Hajun and Tokihito are the same person. The eyes are the same, the face evokes Tokio's as well as what little we've seen of Tokihito via flashback, and the hype-text at the end of the chapter practically states it outright. "Tenma Hajun" is a demon from Buddhist mythology, so presumably Tokihito has just taken that name for some reason (he's pretentious? he's fulfilling a prophecy? he's possessed? etc.)

July 10, 2007, 09:25 PM
I am guessing the Genbu family head must be an old foggy. Although I can imagine her as a brash older sister type character just like Midori in Mai Hime. ^^

Going through the list so far I can see

1) Suzaku temple with a Fire Demon (I am sure it has other abilities as well maybe speed and flight <--- wait was flight already seen?)

2) Seiryuu temple with a Water Dragon Demon whom controls water and heals

3) Byakko temple with a Time Manipulating and Poisonous Demon

4) Genbu temple a Barrier protection type? LOL i know simple idea really. Not really being imaginative at the moment (never am actually)

Since the Genbu head is away I'm sort of guessing he/she must be older and more reliable or not cause I think among them the story needs a fun loving character whom controls a demon and will get along well with the Pervert girl ^^

Maxy Barnard
July 11, 2007, 03:57 AM
im pretty sure something resembling flight was seen.

well either way, thanks cnet for explaining the possibility ofthe name being changed to fir the whole demon thing.

which..........yeah, makes it pretty definite. if a bit too early for my liking....

Just a couple notes: Tokio's family's temple is the Genbu temple, not the Byakko temple. And Tokio's family is the only one running a temple - we have the Genbu Temple, but the Suzaku Hermitage and the Seiryuu Corporation. So presumably the Hon'ami family's "Byakko" residence will be something different again.

Either way, it's pretty much a cert at this point that the Hon'ami family Yoma is going to take the form of a tiger, after the mythological Byakko. There's a lot of potential there, but as for its abilities, I have no clue.

I'm also kind of wondering how long they're going to wait before showing us this fourth Head. They've introduced the first three in very quick succession, but I'm getting the feeling from the latest chapter that they're done with introductions for the time being, that they've established a group, and are going to work with what they've got - probably a good idea for the moment, since with three House Heads, Miiko and numerous supporting characters from each House on the side of good, and the four Shikyou, Kaimei and Hajun/Tokihito on the enemies' side, they've got plenty of characters to be going on with. Fleshing them out, giving them all a chance to shine, and perhaps develop some interesting character interplay should work well for now. Since they've established the fourth House Head as out of the picture for the moment, I think they'll be saving him/her as something special to introduce later on in the storyline. Hope it's worth the wait.

Of course, I could be completely wrong and the Hon'ami Head could be introduced next chapter. But hey, that's just how these things go :p

July 12, 2007, 08:53 PM
I guess those 4 yomas will attack and then the 4th will show up to help the others 3 head's

I've been reading this series and I'm really liking it. I think HnC has alot of potential. I also heard that the mangaka of HnC was a former assisant of Hirohiko Araki seeing that there is some similarities to JoJo's Bizzare Adventure.

Maxy Barnard
August 06, 2007, 02:05 PM
i saw the jojo similarites in the bullet dudes fight against the chick, but its too different for me to agree tahts a possibility......

ginrai
August 07, 2007, 11:36 AM
personally i find that the serie is getting annoying imo becuase of the similarities between jojo (enemy youkai going JBA1&2 on the heroes using youkai as stands in similiar ways) and this since it's really kiddy imo an really lack orginality

Stone
August 07, 2007, 01:47 PM
Serie is ok, with options of becomming really good.
Most interesting part in it imo is how there "summons" can change depending on there mood or personallity. If they use that more in the future like upgrading Catoblepas or showing devolved versions of him and other summons like with the dragon... THis serie will be cool imo.

Atm the serie is keeping my interest. But I hope a complex plot will begin to start or I somehow fear that it won't interest the japanese and me thus being dropped (not because of me of course)

am i the only one who can look at it and see (aside from things that are evident in any summon based series) not that many similarities with Jojo?

either way it's crashing a fair bit, which is a shame, as it's far better than at least.......... i dunno, two to three other series in jump?

damn, its such a good setup in jump right now that it's hard to know what will survive

Damn... I really liked Catoblepas. There are worse series to cancel before HnC...

I would just wait, because it's based on assumption. Last time the real ToCs came like 2 days before the raws (friday) came out. And now suddenly in the two week gaps a "real" ToC comes out in a week; maybe a week and half before the raws.

+ volley was dropped one week, one issue later as predicted. So What do I think? Yes HnC has a chance being dropped (because it lacks interest), BUT I think that saying it being dropped next issue is pure assumption. So let's wait

Maxy Barnard
August 13, 2007, 05:09 AM
well we're mainly working off of the usually reliable TOCs from the weekly jump LJ
but let's hope eh. cause as much as i want different series to appear, I loved HnC.

It is this year's Zan!

I wouldn't sell it that short. :s

Maxy Barnard
August 17, 2007, 03:47 PM
well technically its shorter in length, but i'm talking in the sense of a good series with potential being cut short due to lack of interest.

Koen
August 18, 2007, 05:33 AM
Damn... I really liked Catoblepas. There are worse series to cancel before HnC...

I Don't exactly how the voting is, but I think the clients/readers of the magazine can fill in a paper where they give the name of the serie that was the best in their opinion. They can also add some comments about a one shot

I don't know if it is also like that, but shouldn't they ask about the worst serie. Suppose no one thinks catoblepas being the best, but no one thinks of being it the worst. you see what I wanna say: if you ask something for good, you should ask something for bad - and indeed I think that there are worser serie that don't interest people

xi0
August 18, 2007, 09:52 PM
well technically its shorter in length, but i'm talking in the sense of a good series with potential being cut short due to lack of interest.

No you misunderstood. I meant that you're selling HnC short by saying it's this year's Zan. i'm of the opinion that Zan was pretty bad. Just my opinion though. The art was sort of unique, but ultimately bad, and there was pretty much no story/plot to speak of. It could just be that there wasn't a chance to develop one, but still, it had nothing going for it.

If the series is really ending like the rumors say, I would say that HnC had much more potential and was cut short.

The thing that hurt the series the most was the cliche Brother vs. Brother development. It may have been able to shell out some originality, but if it's canceled we won't ever really know will we?

I say the best new series running right now is Belmonde. I will be upset if that gets cancelled for lack of popularity. I don't want it to turn into another Mieru Hito, which is the only recent jump series that I truly regret being canceled.

Maxy Barnard

ah, i forgot the camp was divided on the zan front ^_^;

anyway, my personal beloved new series is sket dance right now, but i get how it wouldnt be as impacting as a story strong series like belmonde failing.

and judging by the latest raw, ot end in the next chapter would be ridiculous

yoniekai
August 19, 2007, 07:39 AM
the best new series is BWYG!! i saw on ritual that it's still ongoing despite the halted transes. personally genres like HnC take a while to develop a good plot, since it pretty much relies on the stereotypical shonen-hero flow. most likely the editors need something new, like belmonde and sket and yusha etc

seleniel
August 19, 2007, 09:51 AM
Vu que D.Gray-man sera absent du Jump #40 au #44, il semblerait que Hitomi aura une petite rallonge, et donc la série devrait prendre fin vers le Jump 44 ou 45.

No D-Gray from Jump 40 to Jump 44, so HnC got a respite until Jump 44 otr 45...

Koen

For me it's better to be absent for a while: after tiky's rebirth I was a bit annoyed

Back on topic: what do you guys think of that new villain? Is it a real form of the previous one?

Ah, well, I suppose it's a good thing in the long run...

GGpX
September 02, 2007, 01:10 AM
Probably because it isn't all that interesting.

To me, the the manga looks lazily done. A lot of the pages have mediocre effort put into them. The details could be a lot better, but they're unfortunately not.

Actually, I think SJ isn't going to start anything for a couple of weeks. They have ClayMOAR ES 03 this week, Rosio the Vampire (Or whatever the name is) the week after. After that, though, I don't know.

The manga had an interesting base concept, but it ended up looking very sloppy art-wise and the plot was full of cliche already. It was doomed from the whole Brother thing.

I really hope people are gonna start to learn not to "jump" on a series until it's proven that it can last.

What's wrong about liking it in the beginning? Though I agree. I expected more of this. The one shot was so great but it really dissapointed me, and indeed people should learn to wait instead of saying after one chapter: "wooww, this is so great. Awesome. This will be a real hit" (-> I think everybody makes that mistake).

But I quietly hope a shounen of the mieru hito mangaka -> damned his art was so great

I still say this series had a ton of potential and it was a crime to cut it so short T_T

Even though it had borrowed some elements, it still had potential. I think it was too early to judge the series. Oh well.

worst final chapter ever. a simple fact for you. it needed another 3 chapters for a decent ending.

although apparently the second volume will have 42 extra pages or somethign according to the scanlation

Well...since really the last newer series to have anything scanned tank-wise was P2! (Only one volume at that). I'd doubt that we'd ever see it.

You could tell it wasnt drawn / wrote as a finale but as a normal chapter ;-/ i am glad there is a few extra chapters or w/e coming in the volume i just hope someone will scan it but who knows ;-/

It really bugs the crap out of me that no one scanlated the 45 page conclusion to Hitomi no Catoblepas.

Is anyone gonna pick up the conclusion?


Merged here.

Do you have the raw for it?? If you do, make a thread in the 'Translation Request' Forum, requesting for someone to translate it, and then make a thread in the 'Scanlation Request' Forum requesting for someone to scanlate it for you. Hope that helps!
