Change 123

I was looking around and there isn't a thread for this seinen, so I decided to do one!

Well, let's start by saying something about the plot:
Change 123 follows Motoko Gettou, a female martial artist. Orphaned at an early age, she was taken in by the "Three Fathers", a triumvirate of experts in all sorts of fighting skills. As a result of their rigorous training, she developed three distinct personalities, each individually skilled in the combat skills she learned. Now a high school girl, she is trying her best to lead a normal life.

The series is written by Iku Sakaguchi and illustrated by Shiuri Iwasawa, published in Akita Shoten's Champion Red since 2005. And have 10 volumes!

If you wanna read online, look at OneManga page of Change 123! (http://www.onemanga.com/Change_123/)

But for those who want to download the volumes of the series, here's the SnoopyCool page of Change 123 (http://www.snoopycool.com/manga/change123/index.html). Sadly SnoopyCool shutdown their scanlation activities!

Click here if you wanna read the lattest chapters of the series! (http://mangahelpers.com/m/change123/scanlations/)
Thanks to Kajii and shadow-skill for the translations/scanlations of the recent chapters in the name of all Change 123 fans!

But in case that you wanna read a little more about the series, this page you can know something more about it! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Change_123) But be carefull it contain heavy spoilers about the story!


Hope you like it!

Ohh, good anothers fans of the series!
Very nice!

Well, I really like the story and the characters, so I took a pic and use as my avatar and sign! The last one the avatar was Fujiko, and the sign was Hibiki!

With the resizing problem I cut the way I want, after I resize to fit in the forum limits!

The story on this is nice, and I can't wait for the rest of vol 9 to come out. Heard that Mikiri is finally going to get her meeting with Zero. As well as getting to see these 2 new characters.

Kaiser Will
March 01, 2009, 01:11 PM
Yeah, I was trying to imagine what these new character will add to the story!
And Mikiri is really make a contact with Zero? That's something very important!
Maybe something will happen with Kosukegawa again!

Nice avatar and sign!
Specially Fujiko! She is so cute~!

esh
March 02, 2009, 02:42 AM
From what I heard one or both of them use some interesting weapons. Yeah, it's going to be something to see what happens during Mikiri's turn. Since so far Hibiki has had the best looking one.

Thanks. Had to put my favorite Fujiko in there.

Nice to see some kind of explanation on how Motoko has three fathers. Man, the guy who was Motoko's dad must've been really lucky. Seems like all three father really liked or loved Asagi.

Change 123 is a good read. Hopes it climbs higher.

Though lately, I think the integration of Zero has been a rapid succession since the first integration of Fujiko and Zero. I was quite surprised how the next integration with Zero with Mikiri started. Quite unexpected. Now I'm wondering how Hibiki's integration will start? If Zero is crazily strong, I can't even imagine how much stronger Motoko would become when all personalities are recombined into one primary unfragmented mind.

Re-integration of all personalities is going to be an awful period for Motoko. Why is she so mad? There must've been a really horrible experience for Motoko at a very young age. Zero hasn't been able to grow up from that experience so there is something that Zero has been unable to let go. That's what I think. I wonder who Motoko's real father is? That might also be key since the author has unveiled more information about Motoko's mother.

Great book, I could go without all the breasts exposure and such, but aside from that amazing book, thanks to Kaiser Will for having this in his sig ^^

Kaiser Will
March 23, 2009, 08:41 PM
Thanks Katz, I was thinking in a way to divulge the manga through MH, so I have the idea of using my sign to do so! And I'm glad that it work!

March 24, 2009, 12:57 AM
I second what Katz said about your sig Kaiser Will since i think it was thanks to your sig that i decided to read it but before reading it i never would have thought that all 4 of them would in fact be the same person lol i like the story both comedy and dramatic aspects of it especially when Zero was introduced i got hooked that i read the chapters all the way until the current chapter but to my surprise and slight disappointment i found that it is serialized in a monthly magazine lol i like hibiki the best out of all and motoko herself the least which i was surprised to find that she's the one that kouskegawa likes the most >_< oh and i ROFL'd when kouskegawa was bit by that snake and they tried to take out the poison although i do feel bad for the guy since he's now branded for his small package lol although he claims that it was cold.

nonetheless this series is awesome and has great potential which should definitely get exposed more on this site so thanks for those who advertise it on their sigs since there are people who are always looking for a new series to read and seeing it on sigs and avatars is a good way to get them to try it since i speak as one myself who has picked up series in this way like this series aswell has Mx0 when it was being serialized

btw i would love to see zero fight tatsuya, that would be one hell of a fight

March 24, 2009, 12:44 PM
me too, i didn't nothing about the manga nor heard of it, but yesterday i found myself clicking the link under your sig and by the end of the night i had read all the chapters and become a fan...

like everyone else, i'd like to see this manga get more exposure

Kaiser Will
March 24, 2009, 01:16 PM
goldb, as you say I like that to happen too, therefore I'm using my sign and going around in the foruns through MH to divulge the manga for more peoples and the feedback is very good! But I wish I can make more!

goldb
March 24, 2009, 01:29 PM
i'll help you. i'll change my sig and avatar as soon as i can make a more interesting one, hopefully before the end of the week

Kaiser Will

Nice! Thanks goldb! If you need help I have all the color pages of the 9 volumes stored in my computer, so you just have to ask!

Katz
March 24, 2009, 06:54 PM
What's the release of chapters on this particular series? Onemanga has its status as "ongoing - irregular", just curious...and If someone can find me a good sig of Chapter 123, I'll sport it too ^^

Kaiser Will
March 24, 2009, 07:54 PM
Katz, Snoopy Cool makes a release of Change 123 in two weeks! The early one was in March 10 so this week probably will have a released!

About the sign you can google the image and I resize for you!

Katz
March 25, 2009, 06:19 PM
Well Thanks to Will, I'm sporting a new sig, now just gotta find a avatar a like and I'm golden

Edit: Will could you possibly resize this http://www.onemanga.com/Change_123/7/01/ so its just Mikiri and fit able into my avatar box without looking bad

And once again thanks to Will, I'm sporting the very sexy Mikiri avatar

March 27, 2009, 05:54 AM
Alright guys, I guess you've seen that I've changed my avatar and sig to promote Change123! hope u like it:P I think i might change the avatar later, don't really like it much. I linked my sig to onemanga so whoever clicks can read the manga, do u think i should change it to something like wikipedia where they can get a general idea about the manga first or leave it?

March 27, 2009, 07:47 AM
Hmm, well, you can't go wrong with more Fujiko.

Host Samurai
March 27, 2009, 09:05 AM
Damn it! How come that I didn't know that we had a change123 thread in MH...

I've read all the chapters until now and I admit that this manga needs to be promoted on this forum. This manga is so underrated, it doesn't deserve it.

Now back on topic my favourite personality of Motoko is Fujiko. She is the calmest and dominant one, of all the other personalities but i like the other one's too.

Katz
March 27, 2009, 02:54 PM
Is it bad that I'm turned on by Esh's sig....But yes I agree with host Samurai, this manga does need to be prompted more, is it possible to get the admins to prompt manga on the frontpage

Kaiser Will
March 27, 2009, 04:56 PM
goldb your sign is awesome, I think is pretty good!
And you can link to this thread, have all the links that you mencioned, wikipedia, onemanga and snoopycool!
I think that esh is right, you can't go wrong with Fujiko!

Well Katz I don't know if they have a featured series in the front page, but we can try, maybe if all of us send a PM to one of the admins, they can make it!

The chaper 42 of Change 123 was released in Snoopy Cool! Check it out!

Indeed, quite an interesting new development.

That new girl is interesting. She might be from the same clan as Motoko's grandmother. Also, that new nurse is also interesting. Thought she resembled Motoko.

Love how Hino landed her kick on that new girl's face. Absolutely wonderful. Anyway, it seems that the new girl is very strong herself. Hino's counter maneuvers are exceptional as usual. I wonder if that new girl will be able to find a way to break through Hino's defense?

Loved how Guardian-san is astonished beyond words. Wonder if Zero will be revealed next chapter in a fight with the new girl.

this chapter was so freakin awesome, hino is so HOT i just love her. The girl with the keys was most likely sent by motoko's granny and LOL @ the club trying to make a sequel to the movie and motoko sighing from relief that the school banned the outfit she wore from the first one lol

segua
March 31, 2009, 11:21 PM
It was a great chapter. I do find it plausible that Motoko might be the host personality. Right now, I'm wondering how big the true Motoko's breast will be when all personalities combine?

Now serious, Motoko might actually be the key to recombining all personalities. She seems to be the neutral personality that has the best chance of mediating with Zero and the rest of the personalities if things get dangerous on the inside.

Heck, there might even be the real Motoko locked somewhere away.

Hino is always hot.

neovenom
April 01, 2009, 12:41 AM
the thing that i don't like about the whole recombining all the personalities is that won't Hibiki, Fujiko and mikiri cease to exist if it happens? or do you think that it's going to be 1 entity with all personalities as one having all memories that each personality had when they were seperate? i'm with kousukegawa on that they should remain as they are and would find my self sad if they do in fact disappear but i wouldn't mind it if its the former and the product would be 1 entity with all personalities as one. btw i find it doubtful that motoko is just another personality since shouldn't she be the original because wasn't HI FU MI created through the training that she went through with all 3 dads and later zero emerged? so wasn't she motoko before she even met the 3 "dads" and before the traumatic event that happened with her mother that led to her death? what's your opinion on this matter


Hino is always hot.

Well, imo motoko could be the host, cause she could have been "created" right after her mother died, to supress that memory.... therefore the creation of motoko had nothing to do with the HI FU MI... even if she never met her "dads" she would have 2 personalities

Its possible, but i dont like that theory... i would prefer if she was the original and something else was responsable for the creation of Zero

segua
April 01, 2009, 12:05 PM
HiFuMi risk being erased but there should be traits of them left over. I mean, if Motoko successfully recombine, all the girls should become just one girl. They are one in the same. It's just that it seems like each one represent a certain emotion in my opinion. When Motoko is riled up, she might behave more like Hibiki, when she is playful, she might be like Mikiri, and when she is calm, she'll be like Fujiko and etc I think. I'm sure we'll still she traits of HiFuMi after the recombination. I suppose, when Motoko is pissed, she'll be like Zero.

Thing is, the real personality could be locked away deep inside and had never come out. The split might have originally been Motoko and Zero. Zero might have created another Motoko and spawned HiFuMi. So in this case, it could be Motoko Prime (locked herself away and has never shown herself), Zero (there but comes out when HiFuMi is angry or out cold), HiFuMi and Motoko Host. So there could possibly be up to six different personalities.

But as of now, there are Zero, HiFuMi and Motoko.

Kaiser Will
April 01, 2009, 04:57 PM
Ohh new fans of the series, be welcome here!

Anyway, about the Motoko being the host, even if it's a possibility, this should be taken under consideration, because we don't know what Motoko Mom have passed before she dies, so the theory of segua, about another "Motoko" locked down within her soul might be a reality.
If we think about it, she witnessed her mother murderer and therefore got so chocked that her angry turned out to be Zero, and the real her split another personality to take her life normally, we can assume that real Motoko is in a coma, trying to "heal" her mind from that shock when she was a little girl!

First time arround here. Hullo to all.

The little I now about DID comes from a magazine article about the story of Robert Oxnam and his autobiography, "a fractured mind". Never read the book btw (shame on me), but at that time, about 3-4 years ago, I did some research by myself about DID and find out that:

1 - Without correct therapy the number of personalities only grow with the passing years and its comon to have more than 10 (!), those being triggered after other kind of dire situations, not necessarily traumas or abuses, occurs;
2 - Specialists agree that DID is caused by abuse at an early age and often only one of the personalities (usualy the youngest one, called "core") knows about the abuse;
3 - With correct therapy the number of personalities decrease but rarely to the point of extinguishing all of them;
4 - The so called "host" is considered the person "self", the "real" one;
5 - The host doesn't know when other personalities take over and keep no memories of those events;
6 - After the "host" interacts withe the "core" he begins to witness when the other personalities take over, interacts with them and retain all memories.

As you can see, the author did a pretty good job on research and treat Motoko's DID with some clinical background so we can asume he might use some of the information above on the manga. Heck, I might even have made some spoilers. :D

segua
April 04, 2009, 02:38 AM
The author did a good job imo. From reading some of the author's notes in the beginning, he really educated himself more about DID. I'm sure that in these next coming chapters, we'll find out more and more about the incident.

From what you're saying, it seems that HiFuMi might just stick around then.Talk about having four girls or five to yourself!

It has TONs of fanservice, but it's to be expected from seinen with schoolgirls. Aside from that the manga has a pretty deep clinical aproach on dissociative identity disorder - DID/ aka multiple personalities.

chapters out, freaking awesome. I knew when we were introduced to sumire that she was gonna be badass, she got the jugs on her lol seems in this manga the bigger the jugs the more badass they are^_^ but thats a crazy fighting style she has on her, only makes sense since she's the school nurse so she must have some clinical knowledge of the human body so she takes advantage of it. Hino + Motoko = hotness.
LMAO @ Aizawa for wanting to become hino's disciple
kouskegawa's wanting to get laid before motoko becomes just zero and forgets him had me ROFLng on the floor lol

Kaiser Will
April 22, 2009, 09:27 AM
Indeed, the chapter 43 is really awesome.
Sumire, the nurse woman, is really hot, OMG, her breasts looked a lot bigger when she attacked Sora. And she know a lot of stuffs about the human body, she is not an ordinary character, and problably have an incridible fight skills.

BTW, Fujiko obersavation is always good, and Kosukegawa no comments about his day dream.

Maledicente
April 22, 2009, 03:42 PM
you gotta love those 36 pages chapters...

I think Kosukegawa have his priorities allright but I don't think Motoko is going to fade. I guess all there's going to happen is every other ego merging with zero. I don't know you but I would never give away a 4 for 1 offer.

segua
April 22, 2009, 11:33 PM
I suppose that there is a Change 123 rule that correlates breast with kick ass abilities.

Man, we've been waiting long. It's nice to see that Gettou's family has sent out someone like Sumire to verifies Gettou's "blackness." Shoot, and here I thought that Hibiki was going to merge with Zero and go after Sora after her keys must've hit Kosukegawa.

Yes, Hino X Motoko = awesome buttery hotness.

When Sumire attacked Sora, that was all Sumire fan-service. The angle of the breasts and the shot of the panties, pure Sumire fan-service.

April 24, 2009, 03:50 PM
hey first of all I would like to thank kaiser will for introducing me to this awsome manga, but I hate that you have to wait so long between chapters... Anyway, if HiFuMi murges with motoko, wouldn t that go against the manga itself? I mean the name of the manga IS change 123, and its about a girl living with multiple personalities. If you murge them together it couldn't be called change 123 anymore. murging would mean that they would be killing three person. Its like killing all of the power rangers and have a single new guy whear rainbow coloured armour. if they murge it wont last or it would be the end of the manga. anyway, HiFuMi and Hino are hot, but I dont really like Motoko or the tall girl. anybody else?

Kaiser Will
April 24, 2009, 05:04 PM
Thank you for supporting the series, new fans are always welcome here.

After the chapter 42 and the last one, I started to think that when HiFuMi merged and became one person, I really considering the possibility that Hibiki will be the dominat one, if that's possible, the facts that I have is this (http://www.onemanga.com/Change_123/15/38/), here you can look that the appearance of the merged HiFuMi looks really like Hibiki, and that (http://www.onemanga.com/Change_123/41/08/), and if you look at Motoko mom she looks exactly like Hibiki. A daughter have the tendency to appear like her mom.

Well I have others things that the real Motoko can be Hibiki but that is for later.
So what you guys think.

Qc_stryder
April 24, 2009, 05:30 PM
gotta say you got apoint, hibiki does look like her mom, and in the three shee does seem to be the dominant one. are u suggesting that hibiki is the real motoko? I dont think so. but I guess you are right, she could be the dominant one, but like I said, they probably wont murge until the end of the manga, and if its not the end, it wont last.

I think Hibiki will be the dominate one in the bedroom *cough* *cough.* I got to say that she is sure horny. Kosukegawa should watch himself. Hibiki might bust one of his nuts.

Good find. I totally forgot about that scene. They do say mother like daughter or vice-versa.

Kaiser Will
April 28, 2009, 04:53 PM
Me too Hibiki must be a awesome between four walls. And Kosukegawa sure got to watch himself, that girl is wild.

Chapter 44 is out, and I gotta say is huge, you will know what I mean. I was reading and out from nowhere two giant mountains came out in front of my eyes. I got shocked in the same second, the biggest in the manga so far, and that's for sure.

BTW, Sora is a psycho, she really like to make a ruckus.

Kaiser Will
April 30, 2009, 09:31 AM
I agree with you segua. And that Hibiki merged with Zero will not be easy to control like Fujiko that control Zero herself nor Mikiri that with a little help of Kosukegawa control Zero, I think Hibiki will make a big destruction when she merged with Zero.

segua
April 30, 2009, 12:15 PM
Yea, Hibiki is a hot head and she will probably be a danger to everyone around her. Blind rage was we call it. I think that's when Sora will understand that Motoko shouldn't be provoked unless she wants to die. I'm sure Sumeri will greatly reprimand Sora's foolishness.

ok so what will happen one hibiki murges with zoro? (we all know its gonna happen, we just dont know the consequences) will it be motoko's turn?

Actually, i dont think hibiki will murge with zero... as you said, everybody is expecting that! Its too predictable!
The mangaka has got to have some surprises in store, dont you think?!

guess you have a point. but if she doesnt murge, well, how can the story go forward? 2/4 already murged so we know its possible. she could just try again, and if she doesnt all of the efforts will be for nothing. so how about this: we know for shure zoro will come out when kosekagawa is threatend as hibiki is the one who cares the most for him... or maybe not. the story isnt that inpredictactable tho. I mean its an awsome story but its not oda.

Man, it has been awhile since a release.

From what Sora was saying and also that nurse lady, for a person to become black, it takes a lot of skills and even a way to do it. That begs the question, was Motoko's training deliberate or accidental? Was it Motoko's mother's family to sent the fathers in to train Motoko, or was it by Motoko's mother's dying wish that these men came to "protect" or "raise" Motoko, or accidental?

Thing is, I'm interested to see who Motoko's real father is? I don't know whether or not it has been stated if one of Motoko's three dads is her real father? For all we know, Motoko's mother could've had a fling with any one of them.

Katz
June 04, 2009, 10:04 PM
Or all three of them...and since she's gone now, that can't go on maury and do a "who's the father test", so they all raised her

Teeba
June 05, 2009, 01:46 PM
I always thought that Motoko's father was someone completely different, and that the three fathers were indebted to her mother in some way or the other?

I didn't even think one of them could be her real father. o_O

Kaiser Will
June 05, 2009, 07:55 PM
I think it's Tatsuya, thought it doesn't have a connection, although Hibiki was the first one to be created and him is her(s) legal tutor. But anyway I don't believe that neither, that nome of them is her real father, to the story be more interesting someone else will came, and I think that her grandmother is the mother of her father.

And problably her father is dead, maybe, who knows.
So, since her mother died and Motoko mom's was very personal to her 3 fathers, she make a last wish for them to raise her.

But the point is how Motoko mom died, because in one of her memories looks like that she was attacked or something violent therefore with this Zero was created.
Just speculation.

The point is SC buy the magazine where Change is release every month, so it take a while, because it come from Japan, so if they don't have the Champion Red no Change for us.

Those 2 are viable options, but I would like to see whoever it is that scans the Champion Red raws for other series would do Change 123 as well.

thanks Qc

June 27, 2009, 08:20 PM
I dont really know how it works, but if volume 10 isnt out yet, couldn't they just scan change from the magazine in witch its released every month? and dont tell me the magazine hasnt released a new episode in a few months! chapter 45 should be out by now, heck so should 47!

esh
June 27, 2009, 09:34 PM
Chapters are still coming out in the magazine, Change 123 has even been on the cover 2 times this year. It's just that for some reason the people who scan the raws from Champion Red do not scan the raws for Change 123.

If you guys want to know where I take the pic, it's from the chapter 01, look here to see. (http://www.onemanga.com/Change_123/1/00/)
I made some adaptations and put Sekirei too, and is very good BTW.

Nonetheless of course that an anime would be awesome, but I think since it's a monthly series, it's best if the manga end up first.

And my avatar is Rayne from the game series BloodRayne.

When I read this manga for the first time, it reminded me kinda like a manga of Ken Akamutsu (the one who made Love Hina and Mahou! sensei Negima)....

but the masterpiece here is by far much more interessting and more thought over than any of Akamutsus mangas.....

By the way, I can'T remember any other manga with a compairable art...

great manga.... I really appreciate Katz for having it in his sig. ... otherwise I think I would have never read it ;)

Yes, completely


How long is the delay of this manga?!
There are 5 chapters per volume. The last one came out in January, and the next one comes out Friday. Assuming the volumes come out a couple chapters behind the magazine release, they would be somewhere between 7-11 chapters behind the magazine this month.

Actually... I think I might be able to get my hands on volume 10 of Change 123 from this lovely importing Asian manga store in my local area for less or about $10... But I'm not sure if I should seeing how I don't really know how long it'd be to ship, and if it is FOR SURE that a fast scanlator would pick it up. To be honest, I'm kinda conflicted whether I should get it or not, seeing how I usually have this great disdain for ecchi... -_-;;

EDIT.

Never mind, just brought it on an impulse now anyway, chose regular shipping of 4-6 weeks for $13 (but the alternative choice was air mail for 3-4 weeks for about $18) *chest clenches in pain from strict Asian frugality upbringing*. It will be in Japanese.
God, I just HOPE there will be FAST scanlators willing to pick up this project by then. :s

I've read about 5 or 6 volumes of this... and from what I can see it's composed mostly of tits, martial arts, and a complete faggot of a main character.

I'm not a scanner by any stretch of the imagination, but I can say as a translator that if the pictures are visible and the words are clear, most translators wont care about anything else. If you're planning on having someone else use your scan to fully scanslate it, then I guess that might be a problem. But for a translator, the words simply need to be visible.

August 09, 2009, 06:45 PM
Gomenasai is right. And to tell you the truth, I really don't care who I get it from. Just like the leechers dont' really care who scans the manga they read so long as they get to read it. That's part of the reason bad scans were so prevelant for a while.

I'm NOT encouraging bad quick scans, but I'm really anxious to get my hands on vol.10more to read than to translate. But don't worry, I wont leave you guys hanging, I'll translate it. (c;

ah but it is special order so change123 tanko is cost like 10usd and issue should be around 5 dollar usd..plus shipping 5usd..so it total 20 dollars.

yes u right they do sell old manga and also which is selling popular series only..but they will always special order for u(depend on the store)..also u have pay the shipping

Gomenasai

Oh, I know what you're talking about! That's what I love best about that store! If you don't find something there, you can place an order, and they'll get it for you! You have to pay a little extra, but that's to be expected since they're basically doing a special order for you.

Hello, I'm new here and whatnot (actually found this site by the same link Kaiji provided...who'da thunk it?)

May I just say that reading this series is the best whim I've had in a long time. Seriously. I could begin to ramble on about how great this series is, and by the end of it, I'll realized that I'm going to be late for work the next day!

But anyways, this is by far the best manga series I've read, so I just thought I'd say.


BTW thanks for the raws, guys.

Even though I can't read a single word in the RAW, just looking at the drawing and of course an appearance by "you know who"....Don't wanna spoil it for others >>

Now we just have to wait a little more for a scanlation.

But the way I'm seeing to someone do the English version,
I think that will be faster learn Japanese and Translate :p

I think the only part that really needs a translation is that flashback ; it seems to explain where Zero comes from, but I can't be sure by just reading the raw of course :(

Gomenasai
August 29, 2009, 10:37 AM
This is getting annoying. I, like other translators, put this series off because of the news that snoopy was coming back... but where r they? When my patience runs out (it'll b soon) I'm going to start translating from where they left off.

i will consider work on change123 when im done with my projects so i will give a try ask snoopy forum and see what up.. yes i am be little impatient >_<

@Gomenasai would u consider help me to translation those when im deicde to work on change 123

Gomenasai
September 04, 2009, 11:04 PM
Sure I'll do it. But my time to translate has gotten shorter with school starting up again. But since I like this series, I'll get it done.

thanks for the chapter! its been so long since the last chapter that I forgot most of the character's names (well, all but hifumi's). I hope you guys will keep translating chapters! it was a good chapter. and kasekagewa (however its spelled) shure is lucky! well, exept for the part where he fell asleep...

If Snoopy was working on this it would have been released awhile back....we've been scrambling around here to find a translator, the raw has been sitting around collecting dust until Kaji did something

blai
September 17, 2009, 07:52 AM
Oh, this is going to be interesting. I wonder how she reacts when she understands that he really didn't do anything special to Motoko and that she fainted from a kiss T__T... I bet she'll take Kosuke as a hostage to draw out hifumi/zero...

I really feel sorry for Kosuke too. What a time to fall asleep... And the letters didn't make it better for him either lol

preludium
September 17, 2009, 09:17 AM
Lol, impatient fanboys again...

I'll rather wait for the SnoopyCool scanlation, thanks...

Snoopy just say one thing at the forum and everybody said that he was back.

If you look at his site he had any update.
If you want to wait him I respect your opinion. But Believing that something will be out, is just a waste of time, the manga has alredy come out 1 month or more ago, at this time, Even I working and studying , would do at least one manga.

Snoopy have his own reasons, and everyone need to respect. But the truth is, if one day A scanlator of Naruto stops, will have another, and is the same for all those good mangas.

Kajii & Team, made a great work, I wish that the next one come as soon as possible.

:D

Key girl is totally gonna use Kosuke to draw Zero out when Hibiki is on line.

Imo Key girl is too weak to draw Zero. Maxumim what can be expected is that she will acknowledge "black".

blai
September 18, 2009, 12:50 PM
True. She seem'd so surprised after hifumi found out she was gonna "attack" that she won't stand a chance against the hifumi combination.

Qc_stryder
September 18, 2009, 02:31 PM
she may not be a match for HiFuMi, but dont forget, she cant attack her directly anyway. but she could still draw out zero easily with kosekagewa. thats why she is getting close to him. my guess is thats when hibiki will merge with zero.

Katz
September 24, 2009, 11:06 PM
Damn this thread gets quiet often, too bad this isn't more of a more structured released manga it'd could be a front pager if it wasn't for all the boob exposure and sexual references

esh
September 25, 2009, 12:21 AM
It should be a front pager regardless, but that's just my opinion. As for this thread, it can't be helped since nothing really comes out for it for long stretches of time. =/

blai
September 25, 2009, 05:16 AM
If it'd be a weekly released there'd deffo be more talk but now it's 35-37pages and released irregular. That could be why the thread dies so often.

Katz
September 25, 2009, 05:20 AM
Your a admin figure Blai, what's the steps to getting a manga shout out on the front page or wherever, it be kinda nice to get more people reading this and possibly maybe even get their hands on chapters in a decent time frame (kinda off topic but given the current slowness of the board, figured I just ask it right out)

blai
October 01, 2009, 06:05 AM
Uh, the best thing would be if it would've been more known MH, and it isn't. It's only the big mangas which has a big fanbase / request ratio that gets to the shoutbox. The reason the fanbase is so low for C123 is because of the irregular releases, I think. I can try and throw it to the "shoutbox" whenever the next raw/scan is out... Or I'll force someone else to do it.

Problem is, if they'd place C123 in the shoutbox, why not place all the other mangas there.. ;/

also - I'm raw-hunting... without luck ;/

Actually, chapter 46 was released on MF yesterday but taken down again because of a stolen translation.

I heard snoopy will be back on early oct. So hopefully we'll have a vol. to read ;)

Katz

Qc_stryder
October 11, 2009, 12:16 PM
so I was wondering, once hibiki murges with zero, will it be motoko's turn? or will she automaticly murge when hibiki does?

blai
October 11, 2009, 02:17 PM
I don't think that she'll automatically merge, since she's one of the personalities, just like Hi, fu or Mi. And I don't think that Hifumi will merge with Zero, I think that first Hi merges, then Fu, etc. or the other way around ofc >.>

Qc_stryder
October 11, 2009, 02:37 PM
but she is the last one left (exept for motoko). and right now I dont see how motoko can murge since she doesnt have the fealing of anger. maybe it will unlock once hibiki murges. I dont know. o and what is hi-bi-ki? do you mean hi-fu-mi?

blai
October 11, 2009, 03:00 PM
That's what I wrote. I totally wrote Hifumi and not Hibiki. :ninja It's not like I forget names in this manga or anything :sweat

Qc_stryder
October 11, 2009, 05:03 PM
yeah, shure...:oh but some names are hard to remember, like kosekagewa or however it is spelled

blai
October 11, 2009, 05:12 PM
Isn't it Kosukegawa? Or u might be right >.>

But I still believe that her personalities will merge with Zero one by one. ;/

Qc_stryder
October 11, 2009, 05:39 PM
poteto-potato, whatever it is. the point is,the names are hard to remember. anyway, yes they probobly will all murge one by one. the question is, how will it happen with motoko? she needs anger to murge with zero, wich she doesnt have. when will she get it? how will she get it? what will she become with her new personality? what will push her over the edge to murge without calling out hifumi? will she gain control of her personalities? thats what im wondering:s:o

Wow, that´s amazing. It will be soooo cool if Change 123 gets an anime. And the voices are so nice. It´s even hard to believe that one person makes the voices of four differents characters so well and makes a perfect combination. Looking foward to see the anime soon!

and I might be late but OM only has up to chap 49, is there another place where their up to date, or are we still twidling our thumbs waiting for an issue?

Just looked through 57 (don't know a lick of Japanese) even if I did its' such a disconnection from whats going on right from where we are on english releases, it makes entirely no sense...damn I want some releases
