    Birdmen By Yellow Tanabe

    Genre: School-life, Sci-fi, Shounen
    Author and Artist:Yellow TANABE
    Serialization: Weekly Shounen Sunday
    Synopsis (from mangaupdates): Eishi Karasuma (15 years) is a loner with a monotone life. His only friend is Mikisada Komoda (14 year). They venture together while skipping course. One day in a parc, they met Tsubame, a very energetic girl and Rei Sagisawa (15 year), a boy that attend the same middle school. On their way back, Eishi and Mikisada take a bus which lose its track and fell from a cliff. Eishi tries to go out when he suddenly spots a young boy with wings...

    First chapter is out at Batoto, you can read it here.

    Wasn't one of those big good first chapters. I mean it wasn't bad (I'm kinda bored of main characters like Eishi) but I'm a fairly big fan of Yellow Tanabe's works so I'll stay hopeful.

    Interesting because nothing much has been told. The first chapter was an introduction of two main characters. Yet, the coloured double page and the mentioning of the birdman (wonder why birdmen - plural form is used) creates a mystery in which the characters will be involved. You can't find this good, neither can you find this bad. It is more or less the question if this prologue is interesting. I say yes!

    Is this a short series or not?
    The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!

    Exactly what I was thinking. Not good enough to say its good but not bad enough to say its bad. Those who read the raws say its pretty slow-paced and nothing good happens till the end of chapter 2 - chapter 3. :/

    I don't think it's a short series, so probably Yellow Tanabe's next big series. I'd much rather have Laughter in the end of the world get its own full length series but I guess that's good on its own. Anyways I'll keep my eye on this series.

    No this time it is a long serie. Also let's not forget that the Sunday issue where it was published had also next chapter in it.
    And I remember people where already saying that Shuumatsu was slow pace :-)
    This is a Sunday title so there is no the same need to rush as for a Jump one and Tanabe knows it and take her time to install the characters.
    I already wonder how the two of them became friends, it's not like they match each others

    Well I wouldn't be too detracted to be fair Tanabe does tend to start of rather slow in the pick up of interest. So I'd hold my thoughts until I see more chapters given the pace of the author with the previous works. Though I admit I too would've preferred Laughter, yet given the series it would have been quite a difficult piece to write in sustained quality looking at the long run.

    Just read this a few hours ago. Then saw the news that it'll actually be on hiatus and will be back on October. Well, at least there's still chapters left to be scanlated.

    I have read up to the third chapter (just scanlated today if I'm not mistaken) and I have to say it's really a shame that we'll have to wait until october for the next chapter. I like the main cast, the pace is slow but it makes room for a good amount of characterization. The contract thing is definitely intriguing, hopefully this series doesn't suffer another hiatus in the future.

    Chapter 3 is out, and things are really picking up I guess. It's getting much more interesting I'll say that.

    There should be 2 more chapters left to scanlate iirc. But yeah it really is a shame.

    Chapter 5 is cool, as finally we have some insights on what Birdmen are capable of. The Black Out thing is creepy, and I suspect Birdmen are destined to fight with those creatures. We need more explanation why Birdmen need learn how to fight ASAP aside from protecting themselves from Black Outs, I think there would be another urgency as well.

    This needs to be animated, every since they awoke and used their wings its been phenomenal. Takamiya is the best and his full body stripping to cool transformation was quite exciting and hype inducing. Cant wait to see what cool things are in store as the creatures from the Blackout become a point of focus

    Damn, latest chapter is great, I really love the scenery at night drawn in that chapter. The art spread is so gorgeous. Story-wise, poor Ei for not making big progress at all

    Kind of wish this series would be more than monthly as some of the plot points, great in concept, are hard to read knowing to wait a month for. Typically I guess I like reading monthlies in volume format since that wont be an issue.

    But the chp 7 flying stuff was hilarious.

    Agree with this, I thought exactly the same when I was reading it.

    The story is good so far but only Karasuma is fleshed out, though his 2 male friends get a little more development thanks to their interactions with him. I wonder if the others will have as much development as him in the future.
