    Rookies is the shit. Much love to the Legendary 5th Rookies Group for pumping out chapters like gangbusters!

    I just wish someone would pick up Rokudenashi Blues, by Masanori Morita.
    It's long, but it's hot.

    Seems like Deadbet are back to it, I'm glad it's grabbing people's attention again; Rookies is awesome


    P.S: I didn't like Rokudenashi Blues as much as Rookies. Apart from the story-telling, the artwork has really improved from R. Blues to Rookies.

    The later volumes of RokuBlues are flippin' awesome, though. It just takes 10-20 volumes to get to the really good art.

    I follow L5RG's releases, myself. They're usually ahead, and I like their typesetting/translation much better. (not that this is a contest, jus' sayin')

    I admit I read whichever is out before...

    About Rokudenashi, I've only read a few early volumes, guess I'll keep reading if any group retakes the project.

    Re: Rookies by Morita Masanori

    In the J-drama Shinjo is a dick and Hiratsuka is a retard in the truest spasticated sense...

    Apart from that it's pretty good I think it works better as a drama then it would as an anime and I say that as a strong hater of J-drama's. Download link for the eps in English here.
    Rookies is a funny series in as much as it doesn't translate as good into English, although it's mostly just the colloquialisms and jokes that don't translate so well. The story/characters are still just as good but all the English translations have a very White american dude slang feel to them which doesn't do it for me or match up well with the characters I always hear the voices sounding like the "american" voice actors used in the Sam cham baseball ep.

    Re: Rookies by Morita Masanori

    Well well well! Let's bring this thread alive to get attention:

    For those who're interested to read Rookies:-
    + Find the scanlations of volume 1-13 @The Legendary Fifth Rookies Group's (L5RG) blogspot, located here.
    + Or @Deadbeat-Scans for volume 6 (from chapter 55 onwards) - volume 10. Their website is currently re-made and had me all WOAH -- right here.
    + Or if you're more comfortable with IRC (they offer torrents at L5RG), go to lurk as usual.

    barbapapa has also kept the updates of L5RG to MH - latest post was here.

    Hope to see a lot of people read this awesome manga.

    Re: Rookies by Morita Masanori

    I really like this manga but is it possible to find chapters above 175? I looked a lot but can't find even 176 . This manga is great but still didn't watch the drama :/ need to find a good source to download it.

    Re: Rookies by Morita Masanori

    I've been checking MangaUpdates and L5RG's blog for the past months and no new chapters have appeared. The raws are easy accessible, so I guess we should just wait for them to release new material...


    Sorry for the double-post; but... Deadbet Scans & Illuminati seem to pick up Rookies again. Although the chapter they released was already available online, I hope they keep releasing new chapters.

    http://deadbeat-scans.com/rookies-comeback/
    http://illuminati-manga.com/

    In Illuminati's words, they're planning to release a chapter / week. So yeah, great news!
