    this series is really great
    reminds me of early yu-gi-oh with destiny duels and punishments (the only part I liked about this series at all) ^^

    I wonder if the torture will get even more cruel, that first chapter really shocked me and thi 2nd made it even worse.

    I think this series is quiet good! The torture method he use is both funny and cruel..
    ~Both Modo~chan & Moko~chan is so cute!~

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    it's a strange juxtaposition the mangaka forces on us.

    he makes torture entertaining. but i'm ambivalent about it (in the truest sense of the word). at the same time, i smile and i cringe. i feel like it's so clever, inventive and hilarious, yet at the same time it's so cruel, twisted and lacking in a 'proper' moral/ethical mode of thought.

    it's odd, but because of all the asides and thought bubbles, i feel that it will be better when it becomes an anime. it's kind of like hayate no goku. very funny as a manga, but the jokes work much better when they're said out loud.

    It seems interesting, it has the potential to become a huge series. But I hope that this boring torture arc ends soon, when he gets out of his world I can see this becoming a story with great plot and fight scenes as well! If this arc goes on much longer though, I'll lose my interest in this series...

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    I am curious as to how he will react when he finally get out of that basement, since he said what he said in chapter 2. from the notes by the mangaka, he will get out, that is the plotline, he will get out of the basement and wreck havoc? or helping the cardinal?

    I, for one, hope that Belmonde never leaves the dungeon and this doesn't turn into generic fighting shounen 23452. I've actually been enjoying this so far. It's a good leap from the standard shounen series plot, not to mention I like seeing what new things Belmonde can manage to do with his sword.

    If this does turn into a generic fighting shounen I'll probably stop reading it.

    I don't think that it'll become a generic figthing shounen. But leaving him in a dungeon will be as bad for it's poularity as being a generic fighting shounen.

    I somehow hope and have regards for it becoming a mistery shounen. Maybe with unsolved cases and misteries making belmonde coming out of his dungeons

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    It seems like I don't have to worry about Chinese RAWs now, thanks to shrimpy XD.

    I find Belmonde quite flashy and entertaining, I'm not sickened by the torture, really, since Belmonde's goal isn't really sadistic, he's after the moment of "ouvrir" when the prisoner becomes willing to confess. I think even if he leaves the dungeon, the story will begin and end in his little 6m x 6m x 6m torture chamber, but this time he may be the one sitting in the chair getting broken down. XD;;; role-reversal.

    Actually, I'm kinda reminded of Akagi, with everything happening around the little mahjong table, Belmonde is just as crazy as Akagi tho they both look calm on the surface.
    I think we can also be prepared to be entertained by some esoteric witchcraft/neil gaiman stuff. I seem to remember some wierd historian/narrator guy at the start huh...

    And yeah, the Roland - Belmonde gags are just too funny. ^^

    Yes only d.gray-man is absent. So I don't see any reasons for belmonde not being in this issue. A delay (like sket dance) is highly possible

    Yes, same as what koenosaki says, Belmonde will be a bit late, so just hang around ^^

    I like all the first 3 chapters so far. Like silver_sea, the torture part don't really get to me, i am more humoured than anything else. And I actually look forward to see a longer chapter each time to see more 'torture'

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    well, I would say the same as Nami and Silver_Sea...but I'm waiting for seeing the reason Belmonde will go out of his world cuz what happen after that will decide the way(and duration) of this series

    So Belmonde certainly likes to draw naked ladies, doesn't he?

    Anyways this week's chapter was pretty good, I'm kinda freaked out by the coming rat torture on the sliced up guy... I mean that's just freaky.
