Can't believe how underrated this series is, Probably my 2nd fav behind Gantz, Gotta love the awesome writing and Jiro's unique art style.

I gave this one a shot a few days ago and it is actually good whoever the madness of the main male kind ruins it for me he is way too fucked up in the head, it does look like he start to get his stuff together later on the series, i do belive most woman wont enjoin this much since there is way too much violence/rape against woman on it.The action is very well done and the male lead has incredible skills if continues on becoming more of a normal guy this could turn to be one of the best mangas i have read.

He tries to gain his sanity as the series goes on, but you can be the judge on that and I do know some women who love this series because of Higuchi (main character's boss)

Jiro is my hero. I love all his works, this is no exception.

Kano's insanity is one of my favourite points to this manga, I enjoy watching him struggle within his own mind while still managing to keep it together well enough to do his job fantastically. The plot setup is great, and every enforcement is interesting. There are some unresolved questions that I'm itching to know the answers to, and it's hard to tell where the story will go.

So all in all, it's great.

whatever happened to his imaginary friends? my theory on them was that they represented his guilt, if this is true than does that mean he feels no guilt for his kills anymore?

This is the best series out right now, next to Gantz and Shigurui. You have excellent taste fellow.

There were a bunch of hipsters bragging about how cool they are for picking Freesia up. Hadn't heard from them after one release.

are you talking about Triumvirate? they released three chapters before they disappeared into obscurity.

Yes, them. They had a pretentious kind of page to go with the releases. It's ironic.

lol. It's too bad cause they were doing a great job with the series and I don't think anyone else is gonna continue it.

If we are lucky someone will recognize greatness. For now however groups will attend to insipid shonen and shoujo releases.

The translation for all of volume 9 is available: http://www.zzled.net/manga/manga.php?id=4 and the raw for volume 9 is floating around somewhere, I would continue it except I hate scanlating my favorite series cause when I do everytime I see I'll be looking for flaws I did and it'll ruin the manga for me, that's why I usually scanlate things I don't really care about.

That is a bizarre reason. I would have to be you to understand.

Thanks for the link. I'll use it as a last resort if nobody picks the series up,

I your desperate for the raw you can go to Jcafe24.com and beg for someone to reupload it, just make sure when you register to upload an avatar before doing anything then introduce yourself in the noob section by just starting a thread here: http://www.jcafe24.com/index.php?board=2.0

I don't think I'll be sinking to that level this week. But you never know what the future holds.

We (triumvirate) are waiting for tank scans before continuing Freesia.

that's good to know but why are you waiting for tank scans? don't you guys have all of volume 9?

the quality of the public raws kinda sucks..pages are about 1055px height. I think Freesia deserves some better quality

okay cool, do you guys have wendy?

all the volume raws are out except for vol 10 and 11 and ch 70-75 of the magazine scans are out too. yeah! and GWR might be continuing volume 9!!! YEAH!!!

The volume raws are crappy and no fun to work with. If 'GWR' want to continue they should contact me and maybe we can find a way to work together. I'm sure they'd prefer better RAWs as well... well I guess I can write them a PM.

rest of v09 was released, thanks for talking to me GWR-tards :)
I hope they will also do v10+, cus I certainly won't even if we have the RAWs and all the translations. Good luck.

well I hope you guys still continue with a HQ vol9 Freesia and the more groups working on Freesia the better.

Looks like Freesia only has about a volume or two left, seems like Tanaka is the main antagonist and judging from chapter 77 it looks like his days are numbered.

i joined this site ten seconds after reading this. as a girl, i'd have to say that i love this. i find the art, plotline, and character developpment spectacular. although i should admit that the constant sex scenes in the first few chapters got on my nerves. when a scene like that is meaningless to the story, it shouldn't be in that much detail...

by the way, if anyone's still looking, i found chap 56:

So, any chance someone translating last two chapters of Freesia? ;]

Or can anyone at least spoil what happened in the end?

Thx.

Meriken is still MIA, I guess due to IRL stuff ;-;

It's kind of hard to spoil cause the last couple of pages is just dialogue so unless you know japanese you won't know what's really happening.

I've been reading this one really slow and I'm still only at chapter 66, but Freesia is so absolutely impressive to me. So cruel, dark, deep and realistic...

I love that arc about the politician I'm currently reading (just like I liked every arc). Shows a lot of the sad truths about politicians and stars these days, even though it appears so overdone and drastic. And this great burst of emotions of Tanaka at this point:
http://img2.bleachexile.com/manga/freesia/065/A%20161.jpg

It's so perverse to see these journalists and their incredible behaviour. It's certainly overdone for the individual case. No journalist would just jell into a person's face "We don't give a damn about what you have to tell, just tell us about Tanaka!", but in principle it's so very true about the relation of persons and press...

I also liked that short takedown on popstars :amuse "I'm gonna be a real singer, not a popstar." (...) "They made you into a popstar because you don't really know how to sing..."

Kano is such an interesting character:
http://img2.bleachexile.com/manga/freesia/068/A%20049.jpg
"a shallow, worthless job" - interesting statement!
And that incident a few pages later...
"Care to buy a flower? For your mother? A gift for your loved one?"
"Flower? What's a flower? And what's a gift?"

Of course it's sad that it's just finished, but it was a conclusive and finished story after all.
That really has advantages. I mean Freesia had a really high level storytelling, that's simply impossible for a manga which continues for a much longer time.
