    That's why we stickied this one. It needs more love (aka: translators >.>)

    But yes, a wonderful series. Already started it a while ago and caught up now because it was raised in a few discussions and highly recommended by everyone who has read it. I can only step in line and second all the recommendations.

    but I'm glad you all like the series^^.
    Just to make things clear, I wasn´t complaining or anything...
    I thank you guys very much for all your hard work and effort into scanlating this.
    It´s just, ya know...good and old fan´s anxiety.


    These are faces we will never, ever, forget.
    Thank you for helping us dream and aim even higher, dear Shohoku friends.

    I've just read all the Soccer Mangas I could find that wasn't Shoujo, I did enjoy this and I do want more. But whats up with killing a cool character? Sports Mangas are supposed to be funny not dramatic xD.

    Oh well.

    Re: [FEATURED SERIES] Area no Kishi by Igano Hiroaki & Tsukiyama Kaya

    Hm, I find it refreshing. Most sports manga I've read are comedy, it gets boring after a while >.>

    I remember that the Attak No.1 anime impressed me as child especially because of the drama (torturing training, serious problems, illness, death). That was very unusual for a 'children's cartoon' and in the end what made it outstanding.

    Re: [FEATURED SERIES] Area no Kishi by Igano Hiroaki & Tsukiyama Kaya

    My problem with the dramatic ones are that it's alot easier to predict whats going to happen. But it is kind of refreshing to read something else. Though I do wish the scans would be further in. Fantastica is also kind of cool to read as a soccer manga, Whistle on the other hand reminds too much of Fantastica to be any good. I feel all sports mangas end up with the same thing. But mjeh.

    Does anybody know if Whistle is completed or if the scanlators just decided to drop it?

    Whistle is complete with 24 volumes (or 15 collector's edition volumes) but the scanlation is at volume 19 since July which was the only release in 2008. So, missing 5 volumes to be complete scanlated and seems to be on hold by the groups since end of 2007.

    Uh, people die.
    That´s pretty much it. It´s just the "slice of life" side of the sports genre coming into play.

    If you mean Fantasista, I don´t know what you´re talking about.
    Whistle came out earlier, ya know. Just by a little, but still.

    Also, Shou >>> Teppei as a main character.
    I mean, come on. What´s so fun about a main character that´s a fantastic genius that gets scouted by an european team IN HIS FUCKING FIRTS HIGH SCHOOL MATCH??? That´s just bizarre, man.

    PS: Let alone all the crap people keep saying to him, like "drop your weak team and go to Europe already". (WAY TO ridicularize the other characters of the team, huh? )


    These are faces we will never, ever, forget.

    Fantastica/Fantasista it sounds incredibly stupid either way.

    I could've sworn it was older than Whistle though, but whatever. Fantasista is cooler btw, Teppei > Shou. But thats just my opinion. But mjeh. I might change my mind after reading the last 15 volumes of Whistle! Though.

    Hah, Real is pretty damn good, but it starts off the right way. This one didn't start off with the OMG we're a serious Manga theme :3. But I'm not going to whine just yet, it seems interesting enough. I just want to read lots more of it at a time :3

    Well, none of Adachi´s sports mangas start all serious or shit, but they all have some tragic scenes. It´s just a style of doing things.
    "Life can be unpredictable" and shit, ya know?

    PS: Yep, Real is fucking awesome. LOVE it.
