I think it'll be cases of, at most, a few chapters. The first chapter was very detective-like, so I'm thinking a laid back, fun version of Neuro. I hope this manga doesn't get the need to go all "epic" on us. I've had enough manga like that, and would like to read something more mellowed out once in a while.
Funny first chapter btw, Switch and his net-speak/Jump references.
We'll see how creative the author is, and if he manages to keep churning out enjoyable scenarios.
Yeah I really liked Switch and his Jump references. I haven't see much of that in manga nowadays.
the first chap is quite enjoyable, i wonder if a plot will develop
I'm not sure waht t osay about it. outside of HELLS YEAH! How awesome is this? I see this having lifespan to it if it maintains this level of quality, without a tsukai style cockup of seriousish arcs.
i like the art style. i will check this out and see if the story grabs me or not. it's not my usual kind of series to read though.
This is new territory for me, too... I've never really even read a series like this before, never mind translated one ^^; Probably the closest I've come to anything like this was watching the Suzumiya Haruhi anime... or the school-life sections of things like Code Geass.
For that reason, I'm not entirely sure my translation skills will be up to the job; I'm unsure whether to keep translating this one. However, I certainly enjoyed the first chapter, so I'm hoping to have a good go at it!
And yes, Switch is clearly the ultimate awesome.
oh please keep going cnet128! this series is too good to be untranslated
i like bossun! he's so funny, but somehow warmhearted
yes this serie seems cool cnet. But I can't disagree with cnet that he must like the serie to translate it. I owned a scan group, and to scan you need a translator that's interested in the manga. So let's wait and see what the serie will give, but sket dance got a good start like belmonde le visiteur
well by no means would i suggest ANYONE to translate or even scanlate something they don't like themselves, as that's unwise. but i have a level of faith that sket dance should be able to keep people interested. i hope
I did expect more from this new series, but I have to say it's funny. Atm I prefer reading Sket Dance than Belomde :P
We'll have to give them more time to see how their stories grow.
i really enjoy the comedies from this manga XD
Chapter two was way better than 1. I laughed a lot, the face of monkey when takes that breast. The bunjee jump, the end where the teacher throws as a pussy but the bomb goes off,... everything was so good!!!
lol switch is jokes XD
btw is that pedobear on page 9 from ch3? LOL
I daresay it's Kuma, the character from 2ch that Pedobear was modelled on.
