About the magazine (MSR RAW Thread (http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?p=769451#post769451)):
Kodansha is starting a new shounen magazine, titled Monthly Shounen Rival. The magazine will debut April 4th. According to the editor-in-chief, Masahiro Nouchi, the existence of a "rival" is important to the growth of every boy. The title intend for manga where protagonists challenge their rivals and games. If you ask me, I think we can expect lots of sports manga coming form Kodansha.

<Mel_Luvz_Anime> first line says "near future stacker battle"
<Mel_Luvz_Anime> stacker or sticker, i dont know the story
<Mel_Luvz_Anime> Pasting stickers on the on the body results in the user having various attributes, their abilities are demonstrated by sticking tattoo's on the guys known as "blazer", a fantasy battle unfolds
<Mel_Luvz_Anime> thats what i understood so far, seems strange to me though

A zanbatō user! :wtf

But the summary so far sounds meh to me. Stickertattoos and fantasy battles, hmmm... guess I'm getting to old for that kind of shounen. To bad, Kishi is able to present a nice mature shounen but for some reason he chooses not to do so ;___;

Well, I think hes most likely trying to compete with his brother, who is making a very similar manga. He probably wants to make the next Naruto or Bleach, which are easily accessible teenage shounen titles. I enjoyed 666 Satan, so I will probably read this one too.

March 21, 2008, 07:59 AM
I know, but seeing some happenings in 666 Satan (e.g. when Ruby enters and leaves Jio's soul or when beloved people die) are very touching and mature. Both brothers have a fantastic feeling for those topics, epic and dramatic scenes, but then especially Seishi always turns back to - rough said - kiddie shounen. I really like 666 Satan but I would have loved it forever if he just would have kept up that level of storytelling through the whole story.

I'm afraid with the new story concept he goes even more back to "shounen light", loosing a lot of potential :/

But well, first reading then screaming. I'll give it a try at least :)

March 31, 2008, 05:55 AM
I look forward to this one and it can't be worser than 666satan. Don't misunderstand me, 666satan always gave me mixed feelings: one way I liked it a lot but on another way I disliked it a lot too

The main character is jio-alike but for me it's good to something like that: people who were keen on 666satan will be relied to a character in blazer driver. They'll say: ah, jio was cool, this character will be too

The content is vague and can work out well

Okay. After seeing the chapter, I can't judge. I don't understand RAWs. xD I really want to see what the little elemental chips are all about though. I think it has potential, but Seishi does these damn monthly mangas, which isn't cool. It might be like HxH, it started slow and bad, but then picked up. Lets just wait for a scanlation.

Lemme aske you something:

2. or is this a (stupid) joke and did you read the whole chapter?

in case 1. I can't understand how you got the right to say this is bad since you base your opinion on two pages
in case 2. I can understand that you think this manga is worthless

but please clarify those vague comments because I can't get the strings together ;)

I think it's safe to say he saw the colour pages and the colour pages only and they were enough to put him off... well that's at least what the comment implied to me.


It might be like HxH, it started slow and bad, but then picked up. Lets just wait for a scanlation.You know there was a time when I thought that HxH started of slow, but then that was when I first started to get into manga and Naruto was still at the top of my list. I reread and rewatched it some months after that and I realised that it's starts of wonderfully there is no bad arc (except arguably the latter two). I don't get how I managed to miss that...

anyway back on topic:
I watched into the raw and imo this is like 666satan II and on top of that: some characters look the same. As if seishi transferred his 666satan characters in the post 666satan world. I won't like it, I think since there's a setting (prolly a plot too), characters that's like 666satan and I don't want to read something inspirationless twice

Like mostly everyone of us i'm kinda dissapointed of seishi's new manga and the fact that some characters and weapons are simular to 666 satan ... but i'll wait 3 or 4 chapters till i build my final opinion.

I really love seishi's art and really loved 666 satan (except the end) so i don't give up hope ... it has to be good.. ^^

The character designs and setting (Tokyo in the not-so-distant future) look pretty good, but I'm not sure if I care for the premise. Mystickers... Magical stickers... Anyway, the main character's name is Daichi. He's a Blazer, which is a person who can draw special attributes and abilities out of Mystickers by attaching them to their bodies like tattoos.

It's a fairly simple premise for a series, so I'll just see where it goes.

Read the first chapter just a while ago (now avaible in onemanga). Hmm.. It is hard judge just by this, but this far it is just like a mix of Naruto, 666 Satan and little bit of Air Gear. The plot was very similar to beginning of Naruto (detailed plot synopsis ahead):

The main, Daichi, tries to impress everyone with his battle skillz, especially his older brother. However brother acts all strict and cold, saying that fights Daichi has are no battles; just picking up fights. Teary-eyed Daichi remembers the good days with his formerly kind brother, the time before their parents died. Later Daichi is attacked by a Blazer, as explained earlier in this thread; a person who can control the powers of magical Mysticker stickers. This bad guy says his Company has interest in Daichi, who is a Blazer. Just when Daichi is about to get pierced by arrow shot by the bad guy; brother appears and take the hit in front of him. Truth is that all this time he hasn't been cold on purposed; he protected Daichi from these dudes targetting him. Then he is hit by a arrow that send everyone hitten by it to a different dimension. Before dissappearing they share a soft moment and Daichi is given a powerful electrical Mysticker. Then aniki dissappears and Daichi has his revenge to the bad guy. The enourmous electrict shock wave he uses gets the attetion of brothers friend, who comes to aid ( He is the one with "Buster sword"). In the end they make a deal that he will guide Daichi to new world, world of Blazers.

Pretty much the same thing as with Naruto, Iruka, Mizuki, and the secret that Naruto has Kyuubi inside of him.


Characters are straight from 666 Satan. Well, this didnt pick my interest for now, but few more chapter will tell if this is worth of reading.

anyway damn to much insipiration from his brother Masashi & Naruto

What's the thing with those 3/4 trousers... that is such a turn off.-_- As it was already said, the characterdesign was just copied from 666Satan... second turn off.-_-² Nice thing to take the enviroment in cosideration... but "sticker"? We are no 6 year old anymore... the monthly magazine seems to be for 12+.... third turn off.-_-³.

But it seems quiet funny at some parts... I will stick to it for a while. It wo'nt hurt me to read 40 pages a month. ^^

July 11, 2008, 10:10 PM
i like it and all, but it's really kinda too slow for me, i wish it was a weekly manga. that way things would at least seem like it's moving faster... but it's still only on chapter 4 which'll be out soon. but the plot is still kind of ambiguous, and doesnt really seem to be going much of anywhere... thought we have 2 new characters and another wierd animal thing... i hope it gets better as it goes on...

Crude
July 12, 2008, 05:37 AM
I'm actually not reminded of Jio when seeing Daichi. Anyway, yeah the plot is moving somewhat slowly (why doesn't Seishi do a weekly series?), but I liked the battle on top of the train. I still dislike the concept of stickers though (reminds me of SSB. Brawl which I recently got).

By the way, I think it's cool how much attention the magazine is giving Blazer Driver. Much more attention than 666 Satan ever got...

Most likely it's the other way around. I think Kishi² writes the Manga or part of the plot to the game. We will have to see for which console/handheld it is made for. 50-50 for PSP or PS2?

Did 666 Satan ever got into the weekly/monthly Top10 charts for Manga anytime in it's history?

Neji2112
July 12, 2008, 07:17 PM

it's for the Nintendo DS.
but Kishimoto probably just gave the developers a basic story line and the character sketches, and probably gives them full run of the story that they want to do. probably something that doesn't really have anything to do with the actual story as not to give away any major plot details.
the anime style artwork looks good (hopefully we'll get an anime out of him eventualy)

It's going to be on DS . . . I thought people should already have note that from the latest RAW scans . . . ?? (or did people just wait for the scanlation?? - -")

We got to play as Shiroh and Tamaki though, not Daichi and Misora.

@Judasu: I'm feeling a little bit insulted. It's not of your business if and when somebody else is reading a scan or waits for a scanlation. Good that you added a real info to the otherwise unnecessary first part.

If it is anything like The World Ends With You, I will play it as soon as it comes out.^^

and news has just arrived that another RPG based on the popular Seishi Kishimoto manga Blazer Drive is in the works.
So it's made after Kishis story and not vice cersa.

The last chapter was really cool one ...the stickers looked like some cheap idea at fist but now, after read some chapters, they dont look that bad

ppl try too hard to compare the Kishimoto's brothers art, imho ...and if Blazer Drive is good I really dont care if there is some character that looks like some in 666-satan or whatever ...we could say the same about Kubo Tite's Zombie Powder and Bleach but thats were never a problem

Well I agree with what above is stated. In the beginning I didn't like this much: the mystickers were kinda strange. Reading chapter 4-6 makes me feel better and more positive about this manga. I somehow prefer this one over 666satan but then again the manga is younger and we'll have to see how it evolves.

His character design is really great and I must say he can draw very good. Well I must say It seems I was kinda wrong. The characters are sometimes similar to some 666satan characters but well there's some new inspired characters.

Brid
September 30, 2008, 08:30 PM
Heh. Not too much love for this series so far, but I'm actually sort of enjoying it. I like that it doesn't take itself seriously, which is a nice change of pace. There's waaaay too much save-the-world shonen out there, and while there's an element of that here with the stuff with the brother and all, there's also an S & M addict, a talking porcupine, and a badass character who's afraid of puppies. These are all good things.

IF it stays on the irreverent side like this, I could see myself enjoying the series quite a bit. Certainly moreso than mangas that take an entire volume to complete a battle. However, if it decides to stop trying to be entertaining and go the typical non-stop action route, then I'm afraid that from what we've seen, there's not enough depth to the characters and plot to make it worth continuing to read. (Battle stickers really are kinda WTF.) But what its got so far works well for an action-comedy though.

I dunno, but I think this is a "second look" series, meaning people who didn't like it at first might want to come back and read a few more chapters and see what they think? I didn't like it much in the beginning either and was going to drop it, but then Daichi started taking the Myspace photos of himself after a battle, so I thought for that joke alone Kishimoto deserved to have me stick around for a few more chapters, and now I'm glad I did.

eni
September 30, 2008, 08:49 PM
I thought for that joke alone Kishimoto deserved to have me stick around for a few more chapters, and now I'm glad I did.
Kishi is very talented but he disappointed me too much during 666 Satan.

The overall theme wasn't that original but he managed to pull out an unique story. I love his character design and his way of pacing through the story like a roller coaster unlike his brother who's rather slow (which is not bad, just different) in storytelling.

But 666 Satan suffered from having a very impressive high points still falling into average shounen cliche back all the time. It jumped frequently from mature, deep moments back to... kiddie stuff. Also the ending was rather unsatisfying.

Therefor, I'll give Blazer Drive another chance in the future but not now. Kishi needs to earn my trust back which he sadly lost a little with the handling of 666 Satan's end.

Actually . . . if you are asking about the seiyuus in Blazer Drive games, you can look at the scan from the RAW and we already got 11 people confirmed . . . at least from those scans. >.>"

1. Daichi - KENN
2. Misora - Inoue Marina
3. Kuroki - Miki Shinichirou
4. Shiroh - Nakamura Yuuichi
5. Pettan (Tamaki's pet) - Mochidzuki Hisayo
6. Tamaki - Saitou Chiwa
7. Jonathan (The Section XII Division head) - Konishi Katsuyuki
8. Yaiba (Not in manga yet) - Hoshi Souichirou
9. Karen (Not in manga yet) - Nabatame Hitomi
10. Tsurugi (Not in manga yet) - Itou Kentarou
11. Apple (Not in manga yet) - Shimuzu Ai

I'm crazy about seiyuus sometimes . . . so I usually take note of it ever since when I saw the pages in Rival . . . >_<"

Brid
October 26, 2008, 05:08 PM
Huh. Among the list of seiyuus is 4 characters not in the manga yet. Makes me wonder if those were characters just added for the sake of the game, or if the mangaka has this massive plan for where the series is headed. I totally agree with eni that 666 Satan suffered from highs and lows, so I'd like to think that this work is more thought out than that one was, that the mangaka is learning from past mistakes like the Fairy Tail mangaka did?

At any rate, interesting past chapter. I thought it was cool how there were two storylines playing out at once: the funnier one with Daichi and Misora and the serious one with Kuroki. It kep things interesting that way and it was nice to see Kuroki really in action. I keep thinking that since he's strong, and older than the main characters, that he'd disappear from the series so that Daichi and Shiroh, etc. could get all the spotlight, sorta like how Kakashi disappears from the manga for long stretches in Naruto, but so far that hasn't happened, which I like. (I really wasn't feeling Shiroh and Tamaki that much when they were introduced. Though Shiroh and Daichi arguing about how tacky their [virtually identical] outfits are was LOL.)

At any rate, so far it looks to me as if the bad guys are after Daichi so that they can get him to use their lightning beast sticker?

Let's hope that this series turns out to be better than "666 Satan". He shouldn't rush, he should take time to evolve his story and make Characters development. I'm sure he's learned from his mistakes ( 666 Satan bleh, XP )

Anybody check out the extra that was just scanlated?

The series sure would've been different with Kuroki as its lead. It always surprised me that Kuroki stuck around as a permanent major character since the older, cool types usually disappear in shonen fighting series (Ginga), or play a background role and never fight (Dino & Binachi in Hitman Reborn!) But now we know it's because Kuroki was meant to be the series lead!

It makes you wonder where Daichi came from. Was it Kishimoto's decision to make a new lead, or did his editors demand he create a more stereotypical shonen protagonist?

i dont mean to sound rude but wouldnt you be able to do it like you have in the past?

Ju-da-su
July 11, 2009, 09:30 PM
Meh, I won't do it again. :p

After all, I already stated that I drop the series ever since chapter 14 for English translation. I did ch.15 translation just because naruto+4s also said he dropped, but I also clearly stated in that translation that if another conflict happens again, I'm dropping it once and for all, and will not do anything for the English manga community again involving that manga (translation and raw alike. After all, if Heiji stop scanning or skip some chapters or whatever, I can just scan the raw exclusively for the Thai community and keep the updating on that side going)...and well, since it did happen (see ch.15's translation), I kept my word and switch the job over (to Thai).

So, don't expect me to do it ever again...I might do it only as temporary project for English again in the future depending on who'll be the translator who pick it up after me, but don't expect me to do a regular one...Well, the conflict convinced me that some of you guys are sick to hell about having me on the job for this series anyway, so I gave those guys what they want by dropping it.

So that's why I say that the question I want to ask more would be "when will the translation come out?" I'm dying to see who will pick it up...if anyone.

July 22, 2009, 11:13 AM
*sigh*

Guess I really am soft when it comes down to this...-_-"

Well...as the thing said, I want some opinions from you. It's already almost a month, and looks like...still no translator...which tbh, I feel bad about this... .___."

Anyway, so I'm asking you guys whether you want me to put BD on temporary for now or not. One bigger problem than me feeling bad is probably because the raw might actually end up dying soon as well, if there's still no translation and scanlation out for chapter 16. Unless you didn't notice, Heiji had stopped scanning the raw, due to that he's returning to France and will no longer have an easy access to Japanese magazine, at least from what I've heard. Rena said she'll scan BD in his place, but the problem is...you all better know by now that her schedule is tight. She has lots of things to do herself. As far as I know, she will choose the manga to be prioritize based mainly on which manga she really likes and the status of the translations and scanlations of that series (whether or not it got translated and scanlated constantly and have regular translators or scanlators working on it). I'm telling you, cut out the part about her liking BD. She actually isn't that interested in the series itself to start with, iirc. Problem then will be, unless BD gets regular translators or scanlators up on the job, I feared that the raw will die out along with it.

Tbh, it might sound egoistic, but I don't like the thought of me promoting the manga up to this point just to let it die out in the end. Yep, it's alright for you guys to think that I'm asking this just to please myself or whatever, but I want to know if any of you guys want me to do temporary translations for this until some regular translators pop up or not. The translations will be out around 1 month after the raw of that chapter is released, just to prevent myself from losing any motivation for the series. For the manga like BD, I'm sure that some translators will come sooner or later anyway, especially when my translation is that late. Feel free to tell me to buzz off and stop butting into this manga if you're unpleased of this idea or already got another translator on the job, since I'm fine either way and this is just me and my crazy thought after all. I just want to see what you guys think.

Rena Chan
July 23, 2009, 12:17 AM
I already told you the raw won't die. I'll just be adjusting what to scan first and what to scan later depending on popularity of the series, what I read, whether it gets translated and scanlated regularly or not. I might have quite a lot of stuff to do, but all it takes is some clever time management here to get stuff done.

And just as one word of update...I was 95% for A MONTH...on the translation that is. I won't promise the day I'll finish the translation, since I've been really unmotivated recently...plus, chance would be that I jump to other Rival series instead of just getting this done, and will probably unprioritize BD behind the other two Rival series I'm doing...though that was actually what I meant to be doing long ago (since what translator will come if my translation is faster...though I'm feeling a bit uneased now, since t/l is one month late and still no one...-_-")

I'm still (and probably always) subscribed to the magazine itself, so if you want a pre-raw t/l to read instead first, I wouldn't mind doing that for you...so I can get 20 out to keep up with the raw as well...-_-"

She told me that it's a lot harder to recatchup with the weeklies than the monthies, so she prioritize all the weeklies. Also, she's working towards the Christmas and New Year release for her own scanlation group as well, so she's kind of busy with stuffs. If you actually look at it carefully, some of the other monthy mangas she does are actually more behind than BD as well, but she doesn't drop anything though...:p

I could...if I'm not 3 months behind with my Akatsuki RAW (not to mention Spray King...but since there's no translator currently on it... ._.")+volume 1 of EXE and there's no raw out there at all, including those temporary raw over at RP. I don't want to waste my time doing something that other people already did, especially when my translation list is pretty much full. Plus, I think even if I'm going to scan, my raw won't be of that good quality, since I'm not totally that good with scanning. .-.

If you're asking for the scanlation, then ask the scanlator. I already put up the translation for chapter 21. As for translation, chapter 22 should be done by next week, since I'm going to send it to the proofreader today. If you're asking for the raw, usually, the magazine comes on in 4th of every month. RP usually has it out about 5 days before the release date, so it should be out sometimes within next week or next next week.

I personally won't drop it though, unless some other translator kicks in (though it'll be hard now. Not impossible though, since RP had chapter 25 before they shut down...and as I said in my translation, I probably won't be getting to it anytime soon. *shrug*)

Just for fun though, as of chapter 28(?), we got to see mainly the past of Kaine and Daichi...but as far as the latest chapter go, we got one big "WOW!! WTF!!?? O_O" twist at the end of the chapter. :p
