Short Summary

For the first 14 years of his life, Yukio Tanaka has been one heck of a boring guy. He has no hobbies, weak taste in music, and only a small vestige of a personality. He yearns for an exciting life, but his shy, and somewhat neurotic personality make him his own worst enemy. Little does he know that his life will be forever changed when he meets Ryusuke Minami, a wild and unpredictable 16-year old fresh from America, who happens to be in a rock-and-roll band named after his Frankenstein-like patched dog--Beck.

well Volume 25 has been released RAW on tokyotosho, so I guess it would be ok to talk about the new volume here, and what's going to happen in the manga...
personally I think the snoop dogg looking character is funny, but we need some translations soon, I believe his name is doggy, or dog...

what about getting links of where to download the volumes before the 25.

Beck in general is a really kickass manga. I love it how the character of Koyuki develops and how the band grow together.
Unfortunately I haven't read volume 25 yet - I'm only till volume 23.

@shoked: You can get the earlier volumes per direct download here (http://www.mangatraders.com/filebrowser/Beck) or with E2DK here (http://members.lycos.co.uk/mrmanga/).

The latest scans are available at www.beckfansite.com...when it goes back up, that is.

The group that's currently scanning it, MCS, does a great job but is a bit slow because they're shorthanded.

shoked
February 26, 2006, 08:38 PM
yeah, i think that i had those releases in my site but just feeling lazy to use ftp... anyway i saw the anime and i was omg i want to see what is going to happen next but as others anime in order to see them further... you need to see the manga. :( and thanks to the people that make mangas... they do it interesting...hehehe

devo
February 26, 2006, 09:02 PM
Haha, yeah, I didn't even realize the manga went beyond the anime until about six months after watching the final episode. When I began reading the newest chapters, I became pretty annoyed that the anime basically summed up an entire volume in a couple of minutes.

Though, the ending with Beck performing at that famous venue in Seattle was pretty cool.

For the people who don't know what this serie is about : it shows a realistic world of music following the life of a teenager, Yukio Tanaka. He's only 14 y.o., and has no real goal in his life. He only likes one thing: Chiemi Kuniyoshi, a pop idol. However, an evening will change his whole life when one of the most beautiful girls in highschool, Izumi, invites him for a bowling game. The fight that happens after the game will make Koyuki (nickname given by Izumi) meet with Ryuusuke, young rebel and fine guitarist. A revelation will come to Koyuki when he listens to a Dybree cd, a rock band.
Koyuki then discovers rock and as a new passion .

This manga is released on the monthly shonen jump , that means 1 chapter per month . Each chapter have from 60 to 64 pages . Each volumen of Beck has 3 chapters .It has been translated on english from the vol.1 to the vol.27 chapter number 80 , and I'm trying to keep this going . So for our translators and scanlators , here we go with the chapter number 81 Raw :

Beck Chapter 81 RAW (RS) (http://rapidshare.com/files/12117776/Beck_v27_c81.rar.html) | (SS) (http://www.sendspace.com/file/vda5sj) | (TU) (http://d.turboupload.com/d/1439585/Beck_v27_c81.rar.html) | (GS) (http://www.gigasize.com/get.php/305794/Beckv27c81.rar) | (MU) (http://www.megaupload.com/es/?d=A9Z0T9TV)

I hope everyone will support this project ^^ . AND ALL THE THANKS TO BECK-MCS (http://www.beck-mcs.org/indexen.php) GROUP ^^ .

just a side note the link is to ch 88 it think not 81. There is a very bad scanlation of ch 80
go here for the chapters and RAWS. they mone scans http://www.beck-mcs.org/index.php?page=scans

Roocketman
January 17, 2007, 11:18 AM
I know the link were wrong , but now it's fixed , and thanks for the advice , but I have already contacted with the admins of beck-mcs to post here the raws, hoping someone will translate chapter 81 to english , or another western-readable languaje xD .

The problem is always translators. Pretty much anyone can typeset, but translators are extremely rare as they are always already loaded with other projects.

not all series based off manga have fillers, especially if the manga is complete.

Anyways, my bro says the ending for the anime is horrible. Also, i remember reading someone's opinion about the series and they honestly werent impressed with the songs. I tend to agree, from what i saw, none of the engrishy singing impressed me (how often can full moon sway impress, especially when there isnt anything special about the song or the singers) but i would think it would be nice to hear a series about music

Roocketman
January 20, 2007, 05:40 AM
This serie it's about rock , if you don't like rock , just read the manga and imagine them singin pop , rap , hip-hop , reggae,salsa or wathever you like . The manga have "that" particularity , the anime use very good songs as : Spice of Life (Typhoon24) , brainstorm (big muff) (from tropical gorilla) , Hit in the USA (beat crusaders) and some other good songs . But you must see beyond the music , the serie tells you about the problems of a youngster and all those things . Obviously , reading more than 1 opinion is advised , just to see it from different points of view . Personally , the anime has no fillers , it's the same as the manga from vol.1 to vol.11 . I advice watching it ,then you sure will want to read the manga.

I've read the manga up to about volume 18 and still going, but since you guys are recommending the anime and saying that it is filler-free, I think I'm gonna try it.

jacoobus
January 23, 2007, 02:46 PM
The anime doesn't have any fillers, but rather it leaves some stuff out. Most of the things left out are relatively small and don't have any real effect on the story. However, it kind of affects the way the story feels if you know what I mean. Some of the dirtier jokes are left out, they don't mention actual pop culture icons as much etc. Overall though I liked the anime, it was the perfect thing to get me reading the manga. Esp that crappy ending I was like no fing way, I'm gonna have to check out the manga.

Roocketman
January 23, 2007, 06:38 PM
It's true that the Anime does not have all the stuff about REAL bands and Icons of the Rock and Pop culture because of the licenses,in the manga they are much more permisives, but the anime is good , you can hear the performance of some very good songs such as spice of life and Brainstorm .

I agree the music in the anime is awesome. I actually watched the anime first before reading the manga. I would say I llike them both equally. In the anime you get the awesome soundtrack while in the manga the story is much more elaborated.

the newest mq/hq is 77 by MCS and the latest LQ is that ch.80 you have with a little espanol mixed in. you can get raws through to 88 tho.

It's better than nothing. The people who worked on that aren't great at Japanese and had to put a lot of time and effort in. It's too bad there isn't someone more proficient but that's how it is.

I'm grateful for that though. Whatever translation I can find. ^_^

I am grateful to! I think we should appreaciate what they are doing. Hey it is not that easy you know.......

I' ve read until chapter 80 and man I was really supprised on how the story has developed. Kouyuki and Maho having problems in their relationship......long distance relationship is reall hard...could this be the end for both of them?

baboysai
January 28, 2007, 08:35 PM
i don't think so... it's still the "suspense" or "thriller" part in the story where the mangaka stretches the point of climax. You know, avalon, and koyuki and maho meeting. However I think it will be almost over, the story. -_- Avalon will be the determining point. If they are successful, then we know the rest of the story so that'll be the end of it. If they're not, they know it's not for them and that will be the end of it still, haha.

Epul
January 28, 2007, 08:51 PM
I don't think it is just about the Avalon. There is still the matter with Leon Sykes(i hope i spelled that right) and Ran. Beck sure has a lo of enemies....

baboysai
January 28, 2007, 09:41 PM
yeah but they'll all be connected with the avalon right? sykes is behind avalon, for example. It's all going to converge in the avalon.

jacoobus
January 29, 2007, 02:17 AM
A whole new list of possible conflicts emerge even after they're succesful with Avalon. If Harold chooses to continue the story then it will continue. There are issues of how the band will deal with wealth and fame. I'm sure they will make new enemies (powergate?victor slater?). There is also still the issue of distance btwn Koyuki and Maho, esp once they start touring again. After Avalon they will likely go on a world tour. That will create plenty of conflict. I wouldn't worry about Avalon being the end of Beck. The story will change afterwards because it goes from being about a struggeling band to a succesful one, but the characters remain and there is still plenty to be told.

Roocketman
January 29, 2007, 06:44 AM
Afaik , Avalon is not the end of beck (some minor translations on the official site and news from Harold) and they still have problems with tons of people , because half world is trying to get Eddie Lee's last song , Devil's Way , and thats incredible . I wont spoiler anything from the raws , but till chapter 88 , its incredibly interesting ^^ .

Yo Aladar I think you should read from the beginning. There is always something in the manga that is not in the anime. :). For one, the name of the songs are different.

baboysai
January 29, 2007, 09:34 PM
yeah that's also an option. Although you might skip a lot because you've seen them in the anime already. But that's alright for me, reading after the anime. I did that with fruits basket, bleach, and naruto. And I'm appreciating them just fine.

yoniekai
January 29, 2007, 09:49 PM
i started with the anime, and it's soundtrack is the best! some of you may not be familiar with indie rock and a little rapcore but the plot is good and the characters are cool

the hell is up with that anime ending btw, spoiled a lot of chapters for me. i should've known...

jacoobus
January 30, 2007, 01:24 AM
I dunno they left so much out at the end that those chapters seemed almost new to me when I first read them. It didn't spoil it for me but I can see why ur upset.

Epul
January 30, 2007, 02:54 AM
Yeah I started with the anime too. But for me, the ending actuall made me read the manga since I want to know exactly what happened to them in USA. so, for me the ending is not a spoiler but I consider it as a teaser so people would go read the manga if they want to know more about BECK!

Roocketman
January 30, 2007, 06:15 AM
I must let you know that it's said that the second part of the anime is going to be released soon . So thats why Harold let the first season end in that way . And I must tell you all that the manga let you know tons of content that the anime misses , but reading from vol 11 it's fine . We are getting more people interested on Beck , bring them'all and we'll maybe get a translator for Beck . See you all ^^

I actually started reading the manga first before getting to watch the anime. Anyway...

I think it was mentioned in the Beckfansite forums that the first season of the anime was indeed a test (like any other anime I guess). However, they were only planning on making the second season when the first one would actually attract enough viewers, particularly from the US. It's been a year since that rumor, so I don't really know if they'll animate the rest. Like Kare Kano or something.

Well, i did that, but i passed out after volume 4 :D I guess I'm not that type who can read something, that he knows what will happen next..

If this is really true, i will lose my sanity because of happiness! :)

Does BECK not attract enough viewers in Japan? Why do they have to take American viewers into account? Well let us all cross our fingers and hope that there will be a second BECK anime.

I think it wasn't really US in particular, but "western" viewers. Something like that.

Epul

Well I would say that western viewers would really dig this anime. I somehow feel that this anime has more western feel to it than anyother anime that I have watch. Moreover the music is great. I could really see that this anime doing well in the western part of the world especially the US. What do you all think?

Sorry I lol'd... the whole point of this Beck thread is to get the attention of a translator. Though this series is getting worked on and I doubt any translator is willing to steal a project. Last chapter was out at 12/25/06 by Manga One, I assume that they are a HQ group so if you guys volunteer to clean they might be able to release faster.

Manu , noone is stealing a project , I get the raws legally and without stealing anything . Beck-MCS generousily let me get their raws to use them to get as many translators as I can . If you say stealing project ,may I think that eveyone who scanlate Naruto , bleach or OP are stealing the project? Hum... It doesn't matter, we need translators , nothing else . I have 4 cleaners working on all the raws to provide them as HQ as they can . Will you help us gettin a translator if I give you the cleaned raws?

Thanks for the link Epul! Yeah, I liked Beck and once upon a time, I had my mind set on being a musician but my ears just won't let me. So it really is like following your frustrated kid goal.[br]Posted on: February 04, 2007, 11:57:47 PM_________________________________________________Anyway, Yoshito's getting into my nerves. But then I kind of understand on why he wants to show off in front of Maho and is quite desperate on making Koyuki dumb in front of her. I'm right in the middle of when they were about to start to play

in greatful sound. I hope what Yoshito made Koyuki promise between them will be a promis between men. He's quite cunning that's why I don't like him. :angry[br]Posted on: February 05, 2007, 12:47:09 AM_________________________________________________I just read the chapter wherein Yoshito mistranslated Koyuki's song for the Kneecap guys so that when he performed on stage, he'd get the wrong song. Yoshito's a real loser! I really hate those kind of people.

I really like Koyuki. He was developed by the author really good. Though, you can really say that the one thing that attracted me to him was his continuous growth and hidden prodigy for writing music, I really like how he still acts like a kid. :amuse

it is good to hear somebody else like saku. Usually in a band, the drummer get the least attention or populartity despite the drummer being the backbone of the band. I began to like and admire saku when he stood up to the Hyodo gangs just to be friends with kouyuki. It is hard to find friends like that.

bakashijinsan
February 05, 2007, 07:39 AM
yeah! That is true. most of the drummers are not recognized in bands especially those who watch or listens to performances just for the sake that they could listen to it. some people never did imagine what the song would sound like if the drums were not there nor the base.


I really am not into the culture of schooling in Japan. While Saku was really admirable back then, people like that are really common here in our country. I think baboysai can relate to that. Also, it really is my opinion that if I want to be friends with someone, I'd be friends with him. No bully or school delinquent can make me not do it. For us here, bullying like that is for kids ages 4~7. Once kids here get past their being toddlers and move on to their puberty, they don't usually resort to those things anymore. Or maybe it's just me. Bullies here in our country are treated like trash.

Roocketman
February 05, 2007, 09:31 AM
Bakashijinsan , maybe you can help getting a translator for the manga of Beck (still waiting for someone who tells me where to contact them) so we can keep reading this marvelous manga ^^ . Anyway , in japan , bullying it's from 3 to 20 years old . They're kinda stupid or something in that aspect . The universal solution for that problem is : Kick in the .... (everyone knows where) xD .

bakashijinsan
February 05, 2007, 11:28 AM
Roocketman, I wish I knew someone who can. I really do! But as of the moment, I don't know anyone. I'm really sorry. I'd try to roam around large forums and irc's and try to ask them if they would want to translate Beck.
Btw, doesn't MangaScreener translate Beck? I'm still in volume 15 and MScreener is still the distributor.

Anyway , in japan , bullying it's from 3 to 20 years old . They're kinda stupid or something in that aspect . The universal solution for that problem is : Kick in the .... (everyone knows where) xD .


That is quite true, as far as I see it in Japanes movies, mangas and animes. We really are thankful that kids here in our country don't resort to that kind of thing.

Anyway, I'm all the way into the part wherein They're going to produce their own album again after their tour in America. i really felt soooo disheartened for the band when Koyuki's money got stolen and Saku went to the hospital. Really tough times for Beck. But that's what really amazing about them. They are literally rising from ashes to make a name for themselves. not like that half assed Belle Ame band who leeches on strong connections to get popularity.

I see Beck like how I saw Nana before but Nana is focusing more on the life of the two Nana's whereas Beck focuses entirely on how band life is like in reality. Nana's Blast (Black Stones) got too much lucky if you ask me.

Ignore me if you haven't read nor watched Nana.

jacoobus
February 05, 2007, 04:14 PM
Yeah they have a lot of similar themes but I think they're actually quite different. Nana is basically a Romance Shojou with a music scene setting. Beck is a music based shounen with romance involved. Everyone is always interested in wtf is happening with Koyuki and Maho but the story doesn't revolve around it, it revolves around the band and their progress. Nana is almost entirely focused on the charcter's personal issues.

Epul
February 05, 2007, 09:22 PM
Well another solution is to have more people like chiba in this world. It was really suprised when i read chiba is good in martial arts(couldn't remember which one) and also he is the class representative! who would have thought huh that chiba a class rep! xD

bakashijinsan
February 06, 2007, 12:04 AM
Chiba rocks! I personally like his character also. He's the type who doesn't show off just because he's good in school (being the class rep and got high grades).

I watched the first two episodes of the anime (the other episodes are currently being downloaded via torretn :amuse) and I noticed that the comedic nature of the manga wasn't transferred to the anime. Though, I still find the anime appealing, by adjusting myself to its seriousness.

Yeah. and the only reason why I continued to read Nana was because I was following the growth of Black Stones there. They had it too easy if you ask me. But then, they also came from the floor bfore gaining popularity. But Beck! Whoa!!! It's like they're a lifebouy that's been hed underwater but can't entirely sink because of their innate nature and talent in music. :headbang

well, NANA's story is different we don't have to point that out here do we? I mean, people don't read NANA for Blast's sake, but for the two Nanas' sakes. Heh.

Anyway, yeah, Beck as a band appeals to the type of people who go for the underdog. You know, if you're that kind of person, you can't help but cheer them on coz they get kicked around much, haha.

And about bullying, gawd, Japan has a totally different sense in that. I mean, they don't just bully, they harass and drive a lot of victims to suicide! Creepy, if you ask me.

Afaik from Nana , it's not a very spectacular manga (none the anime) , but it has tons of popullarity , but well , I read the first part and I don't really liked it (I'm not saying that Nana is rubbish , I just don't like it) . But Beck should be translated as Nana (or first than nana) ,because Harold's Sakuichi story it's just incredible , the mothaf**** of yoshito driving to problems koyuki , and Ray and his problems with Leon Sykes , maho <-> koyuki , and then that bastard of Ran causing that much problem to Beck , omg ... thats just the raw material , but when harold got his hand on the drama , just so sublimate , and how he drives the story and do not forget about anyone too much chapters (as happens in almost every manga) . Who cannot enjoy this serie?

MangaScreener has stopped translating. If I'm correct one of the staff from MangaScreener actually works at Tokyopop now (the publisher of the English Beck manga). As for MangaOne, I don't know... they're quite slow though.

As much as I enjoy buying manga, I'm not gonna wait years to finally see a new chapter. I've always wondered why no translating group [i]here has started translating Beck... what's the story on that? There's like 5-10 groups working on Naruto, but 0 on Beck?

EDIT: As for manga vs anime, I absolutely LOVE the anime; they did a great job with voice actors, songs etc etc (very important for a manga based on music, obviously). I don't really like the graphical style of the manga that much... That being said, the anime definitely has its flaws, leaving out a lot of important stuff. But by far the biggest flaw is that they stopped with 26 episodes. I seriously hope someone some day will realise that, hey, "this anime kicks ass!" and they should continue to make it =)

EDIT2: Been reading through the thread a bit... the OST of the anime is actually very very easy to get, and not expensive at all. I have it =) I could show a link to where you can it cheap, but am not sure I'm allowed to.

Hi! your first post in MH is in the Beck thread!! :party

I still haven't watched the anime thoroughly. Torrent is taking a lot of time. But I was really surprised that Koyuki's voice would be like that. It's deeper than your average 14 year old :p I gues I'll be loving the anime too. I can just see it! I can't wait for their performance on Greatful Sound!

Most of the scans hardly need any cleaning, really.

BTW, why is 88 such a small chapter?

yo i've just been to BECK forums- it seems there hasn't been much activity either. The last decent post out of manga translations and scanlations dates back October 2006 or something. There have been recent posts last January about closing the site: beckfansite that is. However they said the forums would stay. It's just that there hasn't been any activity at all.

jacoobus
February 08, 2007, 05:55 PM
There have been a bunch of bots tearing up those forums recently so activity is way down even from what it was before. However there is a group of fans from there who I believe are putting a release together of ch81. They are usuing Chinese raws bec they couldn't find a Japanese translator but it's better than nothing at all. Here's a link to a sample they put out about a week or so ago....

http://rapidshare.com/files/14335727/Beck_81__137_155.rar.html

As far as all the questions about the story and the raws I will explain as much as I can. I don't read Japanese at all but I've looked over the scans many times and alot can be taken from just the pics. No guarantee's but I don't deduce anything without it being relatively obvious.

First of all Leon knew about Devil's Way for two reasons. One is that he had a gut feeling about it. Honestly a musician like Eddie was more than likely to have written a couple songs that he never got to record. Second is that sketchy info he had that a musucian named Willie Renoir knew that Eddie had left behind a song. Basically he just went on his gut feeling and then when he found out about the missing Guitar from Eddie's family he knew generally how to look.

Another thing I though I'd mention is that If you haven't noticed is that Victor Slater was just acting sick and playing Leon for the fool this whole time. His son was also just acting like a weakling. Leon seems to be in a very tough spot right now.

Ran is now totally powerless to stop them. When I say totally I fucking mean he has no say whatsoever. Right now Ray is meeting privately with Victor Slater, who according to Wayne Bridges is basically the most powerful man in the industry. This means he's WAY above Ran and also above his boss that president Kurata sob. It's likely though that Slater has ties to Kurata, which is why Ran says he has connections in America. This means Ray will have to convince Slater that they're a good enough band for him to forgo his dealing with Kurata in order to let them play. And in Slater's view a "good" band is probably one that sells well.

Lastly, about Koyuki and Maho. I don't think anyone has mentioned yet how Maho fucked Norman up. Didn't anyone notice that when Norman went to see Koyuki about Maho and how depressed she was his wrist was bandaged. If you look at ch.87 while they're talking on the train at first it looks like Maho asks Koyuki how he found her, he says something about Norman coming to see him and she acts all surprised. Then she says somehting about while she was in NYC and they show a clip of her busting out that move she did on Wayne bridges, then there is a pic of Norman's wrist all bandaged. lolz.

As far as all the questions about the story and the raws I will explain as much as I can. I don't read Japanese at all but I've looked over the scans many times and alot can be taken from just the pics. No guarantee's but I don't deduce anything without it being relatively obvious.

First of all Leon knew about Devil's Way for two reasons. One is that he had a gut feeling about it. Honestly a musician like Eddie was more than likely to have written a couple songs that he never got to record. Second is that sketchy info he had that a musucian named Willie Renoir knew that Eddie had left behind a song. Basically he just went on his gut feeling and then when he found out about the missing Guitar from Eddie's family he knew generally how to look.

Another thing I though I'd mention is that If you haven't noticed is that Victor Slater was just acting sick and playing Leon for the fool this whole time. His son was also just acting like a weakling. Leon seems to be in a very tough spot right now.

Ran is now totally powerless to stop them. When I say totally I fucking mean he has no say whatsoever. Right now Ray is meeting privately with Victor Slater, who according to Wayne Bridges is basically the most powerful man in the industry. This means he's WAY above Ran and also above his boss that president Kurata sob. It's likely though that Slater has ties to Kurata, which is why Ran says he has connections in America. This means Ray will have to convince Slater that they're a good enough band for him to forgo his dealing with Kurata in order to let them play. And in Slater's view a "good" band is probably one that sells well.

Lastly, about Koyuki and Maho. I don't think anyone has mentioned yet how Maho fucked Norman up. Didn't anyone notice that when Norman went to see Koyuki about Maho and how depressed she was his wrist was bandaged. If you look at ch.87 while they're talking on the train at first it looks like Maho asks Koyuki how he found her, he says something about Norman coming to see him and she acts all surprised. Then she says somehting about while she was in NYC and they show a clip of her busting out that move she did on Wayne bridges, then there is a pic of Norman's wrist all bandaged. lolz.

Thanks for the info jacoobus! I am gonna go check out the link you gave. At last... a translated chapter 81! :)

baboysai
February 08, 2007, 09:07 PM
There have been a bunch of bots tearing up those forums recently so activity is way down even from what it was before. However there is a group of fans from there who I believe are putting a release together of ch81.

http://rapidshare.com/files/14335727/Beck_81__137_155.rar.html


How did you come upon this though? and yeah, i think there are more chinese translators out there. I noticed that a lot of groups use chinese raws.

jacoobus
February 08, 2007, 09:34 PM
It's on the beckfansite forum if you look around. Anyways I believe they're working on the full version but I have no idea as to the progress thus far.

bakashijinsan
February 08, 2007, 10:50 PM
yo i've just been to BECK forums- it seems there hasn't been much activity either. The last decent post out of manga translations and scanlations dates back October 2006 or something. There have been recent posts last January about closing the site: beckfansite that is. However they said the forums would stay. It's just that there hasn't been any activity at all.




WTF! They're closing the site? That would mean a drop on the popularity of the series. We must persevere!



Hehehe sorry! it's just typing error :). what i meant to say is "yo bakashijinsan" sorry if I have offended you...[br]Posted on: February 09, 2007, 08:36:45 AM_________________________________________________Thanks for the info jacoobus!

No problem there. I knew it was a mistake and I wanted to make a joke out of it but didn't come out just as fine as it was in my head.

hey jacoobus, thanks for the update so far. At least they seem to have the upperhand now. :amuse

We don't really know what the situation for Avalon will be for sure until we know what Ryusuke and Victor Slater have been talking about for the last few chapters. Slater will probably make things difficult somehow, otherwise there wouldnt be enough conflict.

Epul
February 11, 2007, 07:32 PM

baboysai
February 11, 2007, 09:12 PM
yeah I mean, I'm saying that
Avalon will be the climax, where all unresolved issues will be brought up, and all hell will break loose. But they're gonna make it, and that'll be the end of the manga-
that's my prediction.

bakashijinsan
February 12, 2007, 01:25 AM

That's good! Maybe I should start reading the raws and get some context clues out of the pictures.

I believe this would be the proper ending for this series. Like how superheroes are beaten up first then retaliates with full force!

jacoobus
February 12, 2007, 01:42 AM
I disagree with Avalon being the end of the manga. A manga about a Rock band should include the period of time during which they're succesful. None of you seem to acknowledge that success itself can be a problem and can bring lots of conflict, making for a good story. Beck will have a whole new list of issues once they have fame and money. Harold is already preparing us for this by building up a rivalry with Powergate. I don't see Beck ending anytime soon. If it ends at Avalon it would feel like a cop-out to me. I want to know the whole story.

Epul
February 12, 2007, 01:43 AM
I would also like to make a prediction,Kouyuki will be a rock superstar one day. Remember one of BECK manager who recently had a baby?( can't seem to remember the manager's name though ><) wanted to name his baby with a rockstar name? he named the baby kouyuki! I see it as a hint by the mangaka that kouyuki and BECK will be famous one day, maybe even more famous than eddie lee and Dying Breed!

jacoobus
February 12, 2007, 01:46 AM
Exactly my point. The manga won't end until Beck has joined the company of the rock stars in the dream. Avalon won't get them there but it's the first really big step.

Epul
February 12, 2007, 02:00 AM
Well, all these means only one thing, we have more BECK to look forward to in the future! Now if only we can get our hands on a translated BECk manga......(on my knees and praying to god)

Well, it's just coz I think Harold has already shown enough "ups" for the band. That's just what I think. over and out.

bakashijinsan
February 12, 2007, 11:19 PM
You all got a point there, not ending Beck in Avalon. But I would have to diasagree with going on further to the story where Beck would be famous and all. beck has been going on too long and I believe Harold has been infusing into us the theme "stand-up-and-be-known-throughout-the-world-even-though-bitches-and-asses-are-there-to-stop-you"

If at any rate, the band will be know worldwide, I think it'd be just an epilogue chapter, where maybe Baby Koyuki (the baby named after Yuki) would be all grown up and be proud that his name was taken from a very famous rock musician.

I'm actually seeing the story building up for the "climax" (which is Beck getting their "break") and then the denoument follows then the conclusion.

jacoobus
February 13, 2007, 12:46 AM
Koyuki told the lead singer of Powergate straight to his face that no one would be talking about Powegate in 1 year's time. Then the guy goes crazy and tries to deck Koyuki. You think Harold would create a scenario like that if he wasn't going to show us how this takes place over the next year? It was obvious he's creating new antagonists because Ran is about to get his ass handed to him. The same is likely true of Victor Slater (new antagonist) although I can't know for sure because all that text is in Japanese.

Epul
February 13, 2007, 01:37 AM
Yo bakashijinsan and jacoobus. I think you both have a point there. I agree with bakashijinsan about the fact that BECk have been going on for too long and I personally feel it will be nice to end BECk after the avalon festival. But there is still too many unsolved issues e.g:leon sykes, Ran, Powergate, Eddie Lee's last song, koyuki and maho relationship just too name a few(I believe there is still many more like the rivalry between Eiji and Ryusuke that seem to have been casted aside by Harold). So, there might still be more to BECK after avalon or Harold could just ignore all this issues and end BECK after avalon and do an epilogue chapter as the ending like bakashijinsan have mentioned. So Harold Sukoshi, the ball is in your court....

jacoobus
February 13, 2007, 02:34 AM
I think all the Japanese antagonists will be dealt with during Avalong, including Ryusuke vs Eiji. Don't forget that Belle Ame is also playing Avalon. When they flop and Beck becomes huge it will pretty much settle the score. Either way I see this as a big turning point for the manga rather than an ultimate climax. Once they become famous for Devil's Way they are on a world scale, they leave their enemies in the Japanese music industry behind for bigger fish. They will be a success for sure, but probelms don't stop once you're succesful. Maintaining success can be much more difficult than gaining it.

baboysai
February 13, 2007, 07:24 AM
They will be a success for sure, but probelms don't stop once you're succesful. Maintaining success can be much more difficult than gaining it.

Yeah but it would be too much of a drag reading about them when they're like that already. Like reading about Angelina Jolie, who definitely is successful, even with scandals and stuff. So? She's got it anyway.
Anyhoo that was just an analogy. Knowing that they're there and raking the money, what's left to think about? That's why I really have a strong gut feeling that after Avalon, as bakashijinsan said, denoument will follow.

And if my gut feeling turns out wrong, I can accept it. Provided that Harold will handle it well.

Exactly what I'm trying to point out here. It maybe just me (or with bbsai) but reading about the future ongoing success story of Beck would pretty much kill the story itself.

Sorry, jacoobus, I haven't touched the raw or anything that's why I really cannot relate to anything after chapter 80. I wanted to get the story's full impact with my common sense shut down for the moment so that I can enojoy all the emotions that the author wants me (us) to feel. Maybe after i've read it, i might change my opinion about it.

As what baboysai said




And if my gut feeling turns out wrong, I can accept it. Provided that Harold will handle it well.

I'm not flaming any one just to be clear. We're all Beck fans here and we should unite! Translate Beck please! :wtf

this is most likely what I had in mind except the continuation part. We know that it is hard to maintain your level of success, but in my own biased opinion, it would sway Beck from how I loved it.

I just started reading the manga yesterday after watching the anime (I started at vol 12 where the anime left off) and I've just finished volume 21.

And I gotta say, this is one of, if not the best manga I've ever read. It's so different from the usual "I've got special powers and I'm going to use them to fight evil" type story that I'm so used to. This manga is so much closer to reality than any other I've read. I can relate to the characters so much. This manga was probably the first I've read to actually make me feel sad. I can also relate to this manga on the music theme. I, too, am a musician.

I just love this manga to death and I hope it never ends.

If I've got this right, the scanlations have stopped at chapter 80, right? I just wonder why? Maybe I'm just stupid, since I'm new here. I don't know how all this translation/scanlation-things work.
If someone would just show me how to clean the raws and what thing's I need to do, I would gladly help. If someone would write down the translation in english that is!

So, am I just being stupid or might I actually be able to help?

There's tons of editors that want to do Beck. The problem is getting the translation.

I might be able to get a translator for the series, and my group(Phase3) can start scanlating it. I'm currently talking to a translator to see if he's up for the project or not.

regarding the scanlations, yeah, it stopped on chapter 80. so we are actively requesting on MH for translators to translate them since there are many people who can edit the raws. So let's all shout out!

Seriously? That's fantastic! Big thanks, I'll do anything to support the project =)

I might even be able to typeset if this doesn't work out, btw, I've done a little project before one time.

Heh. Just started typesetting. NJT is revising the script as we speak, and will be done soon. NJT is making the translation even better than before, so it's worth the wait!

So keep your fingers crossed and pray we finish tonight.

The site is fine. It is on Firefox, anyways.

THANKS Emery! Thanks to Phase 3!

EDIT: OMG! This chapter is amazing!

Devil's way is almost complete, Ryuuske's asking Koyuki to do the lyrics, Sykes comes for the guitar and Devil's way and Koyuki uses it to buy Beck's way to Avalon! Totally worth the wait!

Thanks Phase3, had been waiting for this for ages. Very best they say in their page the next one is coming out even this weekend!

Beck community should erect a statue of Phase3 folks, you rock!

March 18, 2007, 12:52 PM
hey cyro11 welcome to MH! :party

We really have to thank Phase 3 for picking up this project. And of course thanks to all the people who previously scanlated all the Beck goodness that we got.

Damn domo arigato Mr.Phase 3!! :=) i think i even dream i posted before here O.o (well yeah don't ask xD) <3 BECK <3

PS.it was my dreamin' or i saw/read something about 82 out soon? =3U

Cyro11
March 19, 2007, 01:35 PM
Thanks bakashijinsan, I've being around the site for quite a lot of time, probably since it started. Normally I don't post much. But, you know, beck's the real deal, so I felt forced to post my thanks to Phase3, they're turning our dreams true!!

I'll try to show more around here, have to keep the spirtis high.

bakashijinsan
March 19, 2007, 04:30 PM
yeah you do that cyro11! Join the discussions. And that's really cool that Beck was the manga that made you post your first post. :thumbs

and you're not dreaming OrangeV. Chapter 82 will be out, I believe sometime next week, according to Phase 3.

baboysai
March 20, 2007, 06:57 AM
yeah hello cyro! beck compelled you to post huh? hehe.

Cyro11
March 20, 2007, 09:18 AM
yeah, no doubt about it. Beck's the greatest series i've ever read. Plot got you hooked on it and the "bizarre" drawing style really makes it worth stopping to appreciate every detail. I'm a bit fed up of perfect occidental-like faces. Sakuishi's style really rocks! Not to mention the impression you hear the music even while reading.

When the continuation of the anime????

baboysai
March 20, 2007, 11:56 AM
When the continuation of the anime????
oh, about that. I heard from a little forum waaaay back when the anime was still at its prime that the animators were actually waiting if it would click overseas before making more eps. But that was just hearsay.

Anyway, it's been a long time since the first season... I doubt if they pick it up again. :crying

Emery
March 20, 2007, 01:17 PM
The Japanese site actually says that the first 26 episodes were the "old story" and there's apparently a "new story"? I clicked on it and it was all in Japanese, so I couldn't read it. :P

bakashijinsan
March 20, 2007, 07:00 PM
Well, that's good news!

I mean, they all made it like Beck had a good ending there but for us readers of manga, we know what's going to happen.

I think the animators were playing it safe there. Just in case.


And I would have to agree with cyro11 on the feeling-the-music-without-hearing-it thing. I'm totally woooed by Koyuki when he sang in Greatful sound.

baboysai
March 20, 2007, 09:18 PM
Well if they ever plan to animate the rest of the manga I think they're probably waiting for the ending, since it's almost over. I think 2-3 more volumes does the job.

BlaZeR
March 20, 2007, 09:43 PM
Ah :( I hate when mangas finish.

bakashijinsan
March 20, 2007, 09:47 PM
yeah but you'd also hate it when it continues on and on. So a good ending would certainly close the manga with a satisfied smile from the faces of the fans

Epul
March 20, 2007, 10:10 PM
Yep and the manga BECK has been going on for quite a long time now.

Emery
March 21, 2007, 12:30 AM
Well, none of us know for sure when BECK will end. I don't want it to be anytime soon, so don't jynx it :P

bakashijinsan
March 21, 2007, 04:45 AM
Nobody's jinxing it. :amuse

I mean, for me it just feels quite right for it to end in a few more volumes. But of course, we really never know what's inside harold's mind.

Cyro11
March 21, 2007, 08:09 AM
I also think a good end in time is quite the big deal. What's the point in extending a series when it's getting redundant? This is one of the things I love about Manga. Authors "dare" to finish their jobs, not like american comics, x-men or spiderman will run forever making you lose interest on the plot cause it's always the same.

Still, I think Beck's got a lot to say yet. I don't think it's going to go so smoothly as it might seem from chapter 81. I really hope it gets twisted, unfortunately I don't know japanese so I don't really know what's going on. And I don't want to!! Not untill it's scanlated...

bakashijinsan
March 21, 2007, 07:24 PM
Not a lover of spoiler are we cyro? We share the same sentiments.

and I have to strongly agree with you on the american comics thing. Look at xmen. It has been going on for, what? more than 40 years?
Stories need to have and ending. and a proper one at that.

It may sound like I want V=Beck to end but I don't. Not until it's appropriate.

Cyro11
March 23, 2007, 05:12 AM
Definitely not. For me the thiller of not knowing what's coming next it's the very best in life. So it applies of course to beck too!

I remember some arguments with people for putting spoilers without marking them as spoilers. I guess in a way that's what makes me not a forum guy. I don't wanna people spoiling my favourite series.

Long life to Beck! It's not appropiate yet!!

Phase3 are gods! I'm usually a lurker around here... but I have to say. Phase3 are the best thing that's happened to manga in a long time. BECK HAS RETURNED!

Hello lurker DudeusMaximus :) good thing you decided to post, like cyro here. ^_^ Couldn't resist thanking phase3, i guess.

March 27, 2007, 06:11 PM
Yoshitsune has been sick, so much so that he was in the hospital for a few days. He got back online 3 days ago, and told me he was almost done with the translation for 82, but now he dissapeared again. I don't know why, exactly. But I'm thinking he went back to the hospital.

bakashijinsan
March 27, 2007, 11:21 PM
Hope Yoshitsune gets better soon. And going back to the Hospital twice in less than a week? :blink Must be a serious one.

Hey Edgar welcome to MH! :party :turtle

Yo emery, send our best regards to him when he comes back.

baboysai
March 28, 2007, 08:54 AM
Hope he does... 0.0 Going to the hospital is really stressful even when you're not sick. So sick people going to the hospital really worsens it.

Yep, emery, send our get-well soon greetings.

Edgar
March 28, 2007, 07:41 PM
I really do hope there isn't anything seriously wrong with Yoshitsune :( Hope to hear him being 100% healthy again soon.

honestly, beck is one of those few animes/mangas that is better in a form with sound and movement that you can see. For only one reason though. You can actually hear how great the music sounds. :)

I trully understand what you mean. However I have to disagree. I think what makes this manga really interesting and powerful is the fact that we are the ones that have to imagine the music and the movement. The plot of course is great, but leaving up to the readers' imagination the music it's the greatest that Harold's done, at least for me.

Who hasn't found themselves trying to sing devil's way???

Epul
April 02, 2007, 03:00 AM
Good point there cyro. Eventhough i've watched the anime and listened to the Beck soundtrack, whenever i read the manga, i will always be imagining some tunes in my head and imagining how the sound in the manga would sound like in real life.

Emery
April 02, 2007, 10:10 AM
A little update: We decided that if Yoshitsune isn't back by Friday, we're going to have Shinshi-dono translate the chapter. Bare in mind, he is less experienced than Yoshitsune and will take longer to translate.
