So I was at the book store the other day and I noticed the book Zombie Powder. Tite Kubo being the other caught my eye, so I decided to read it. Anyone else read this? What are your thoughts or ideas on it?

pah. it was an editors decision with no further information available, aside from the obvious rumour that tites mental health wasnt good enough to warrant him continuing (as in volume 3s slip suggesting)

and zombie powder is still one of the best mangas out there, even if the ending is inconclusive and annoying.

Bleach is much much much better in my opinion.

Not really. There wasn't a single thing with those in it. It was a typical Shounen title. And quite good.

I quite liked it. :( I wish Kubo had continued, but it was said that not enugh people read it so he got discouraged and stopped during the middle of Volume 4, or something. It was getting interesting as well...


Bleach is much much much better in my opinion.

Actually, I think it'd be just as good as Bleach if he ever continued. You can't really compare a 25 volume manga which is still going strong and continuing, with a cut short Volume 4 manga. :)

If you guys have the time to read it, I suggest you do so.

You'd be surprised and amused to see alot of characters resembling alot of Bleach characters now. And theri personalities even. :rofl It's hilarious. XD

I guess your right about the comparison between a 4 Volume manga and a 25 volume manga. I think Gamma Akutabi is pretty cool too.

Merry Christmas! :santa

Merry Christmas to you too ^_^

And yeah, Gamma's cool too. He has bits and pieces of Ichigo in him too. But I like that girl more. But I can't rmember her anme >< The reporter...

And too bad Kubo stopped there...I wanted to know more about Gamma's back story.

wolfgangina lola ghetto or something. yeah, im too lazy to grab my viz release.
and the art to me had a lot more going for it (the clean-ness and crispness particularly), and perhaps if there wasnt the mystery ending, itd still be going strong now. but then thered be no bleach. damn. honestly, itd just be nice if he went back to it with a series of specials or something when hes done with bleach. in 2015. or something

i never read this series but if it is as good as some of you say, than i might as well try it.

I_M, your right about one thing, bleach will end a long long time from now but i doubt any mangaka has gone back and "finished" a series that was cancelled.

Maxy Barnard
December 25, 2006, 06:36 PM
yeah, but i enjoy hoping

I read Zombie powder and it was excellent imo. However, I wouldn't recommend reading it because it gets better and better then it comes to a sudden stop!

damn cool, a pity it's unfinished :/

a manga where the hero "is strong and is well aware of that, so kicks ass without mercy" would have been a nice reading :D

B.astard! is somewhat in same style (hero is strong and is aware of it), worth reading too

: D I really wish it would continue.
I was shocked when I realized that that was it.

The girl from Zombie Powder...she looks like the sister of Ichigo's friend (forgot his name).

Actually, I thought that it was one of the best manga's that I've ever read. If it didn't stop so abruptly and so soon, it would have earned a spot in my icon. The plot really caught you and the characters were deep. And what really gets you is the fact that it stopped right when the plot was fully set up and ready to go. If he ever picked up the story again, I'd be the first to continue reading. Sex? None. There wasn't even a nude scene. Violence? It fit into the storyline per-fect-ly.

See, IF it ever continued, it would definately be my favorite manga.

You can find it on Mangatraders (http://www.mangatraders.com/files/manga/zombie_powder), but you'd need to register first.

It is actually one of the few titles that should have continued... My dad even liked it.

I read the first chapters of Zombie Powder and I really hated (and then dropped) it...

You know i hate to see a piece of art like Zombie Powder die out like that, so i hope that one day when i do reach my goal on becoming a fantasy arthur i could ask Tite Kubo to continue, that i can promise cause i hate not hearing a end to a story. (oh and my first book should be made by 2008 august).

that last graphic novel of Zombie had a note on it that said that the author would eventualy continue it again in the future. Although its very unclear. But yeah its a shame it ended so abruptly.

If you go to the first page of the volume 4 theres the note from Kubo on the graphic novel from VIZ.
Kubos note on Page 1.

"This is the fourth volume. I'll have to part with these characters until the next time I continue this story."

how long ago was that, though? hes been at bleach for a while now... even his art style has changed a bit. i'd prefer zombie powder was unfinished and as good as it is than continued with teh art not teh same. pity it was dropped, i dont understand what his editors were thinking...

It was quite interesting. I thought Gamma was a cool character. But the reporter with her tripod stand was kinda lame. I paused midway through the story and decided not to continue it when I realized there was onli 4 volume. I didn't even noe the manga was dropped until I looked here. :amuse
