    Re: Bastard!! Manga Discussion Thread

    I'm not really a scanlation kind of guy, but I will certainly translate starting from volume 23 if there are even five people who want me to go for it. It's a fun series to read and translate so I'd be happy to do it. Now all we need is five people wanting it...

    Heh, if you translate it, someone will want to scanlate it, I can pretty much guarantee that. You've got VIII here though, so that's one, you just need 4 more to speak up.

    I already have Bastard!! vol 23 in my language and in my bookshelf, but I really would like the translation of vol 24.

    Unconsciousness is my destiny, my joy but also my desperation.

    Re: Bastard!! Manga Discussion Thread

    Wow Luckas04, that's very cool! I might just summarize volume 23 and then go straight to volume 24. We'll see if I can post a translation of the first chapter of volume 24 sometime this week.

    Re: Bastard!! Manga Discussion Thread

    Here's a quick synopsis for those of you wondering what happened in volume 23 (it's pretty long so bear with me):

    Our scene starts with the devil king-level fallen angel Uriel who couldn’t express his regret and penitence to his sister Amrael and Dark Schneider who has unleashed the power of the 7 Judas Pains (*remember Beelzebub still has the last one) and has become all demon-like. Both of their hatreds clashed in a fierce battle and it appeared as though DS had won. However, due to Beelzebub’s release of Uriel’s dark augoeides from Cocytus, the battle took a sudden turn. With Uriel’s dark augoeides’ one blast, DS lost his cursed armor and the power of the 7 Judas Pains. DS, in a now desperate situation, summons and fuses with the human-made, ultimate and final weapon which was designed to fight against heaven and hell, “the Dragon Warrior Lucifer.” With the clash of the two great beasts, the wall of hell is shattered and the battlefield changes to the ground on Earth…?

    **Another note about this volume, Beelzebub planned everything out so that DS would summon and fuse with the Dragon Warrior Lucifer. Per Raphael’s explanation, the dark Adam, DS, cannot be permanently killed by the powers of heaven (it’s sort of like how paper beats rock but rock beats scissors and scissors can only beat paper). The only thing that could possibly destroy DS permanently is the power of a dark augoeides. The only dark augoeides with enough power to take down DS (who has the 7 Judas Pains and Lucifer) would be Beelzebub, Satan or possibly one of the 4 Seraphs if one were to fall to darkness. That is why Beelzebub planned the fall of his former friend Uriel and why he unleashed Uriel’s dark augoeides from Cocytus. All of this was planned as a way to permanently destroy DS.

    **The quote that Raphael says when describing the Dragon Warrior Lucifer is:

    “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and seven horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”

    “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” (New Testament, from the Apocalypse of John)

    **Finally, we see the Messiah at the end of the volume watching the man-made Adam in the sky. He comments about how the dark Adam, DS’s, actions from now on (his fight with Uriel) will determine the future. If DS chooses the path of light then it will represent proof of the long lost "contract" but if he succumbs to hatred and evil then it will mean heading one step closer to the destruction of the universe meaning the Messiah will have no choice but to take him down. The Messiah then gets all stigmata-fied and the volume ends.

    Re: Bastard!! Manga Discussion Thread

    I believe Lucka's volumes are in Italian though I'm not certain of that (judging by Lucka's previous posts though I'd guess Italian).

    We'll see if I can get around to doing chapter 1 of volume 24 sometime soon.

    Yes, my volumes are in italian. In my country Bastard!! is well known among manga readers.

    Re: Bastard!! Manga Discussion Thread

    I'm glad I was finally able to find a thread about Bastard!!, I was always surprised by the fact there was almost no fansites about this manga on the internet, while it's a decent success in Japan (Vol24 was ranked 4th sales wise the month it came out if I remember correctly) and is very popular in France and Italy.

    Anyway Pocketmofo, I'd be extremely interested to read translations from you. Here's another person, only 3 to go.

    Well, I guess I'm just going to have to translate it. I keep saying this, but hopefully I'll get a translation of the first chapter in volume 24 sometime this week.

    Great to see so much interest in Bastard. Thanks Zindryr for starting the thread and uploading the volumes!

    Re: Bastard!! Manga Discussion Thread

    I have a ton of other extra Bastard!! stuff, like a couple of the new Complete extra chapters and stuff, though most of that is just stuff Hagiwara didn't put in back in the days when he was in good old Shounen Jump. He got away with a damn lot of sex and vulgarity in Shounen Jump though, (I've gone back and am reading all 24 volumes in a row again, heh).

    HumanRage, the scans for volume 24 are pretty decent quality, so if you can typeset well then you wouldn't have to worry too much about quality, (aside from the text over artwork parts, which Hagiwara does a ton of, that bastard).

    Re: Bastard!! Manga Discussion Thread

    Yeah, he got a way with a hell of a lot in the later volumes in particular (though I believe they did edit out pretty much every instance of little DS). Some of the scenes are super raunchy though so I'm surprised they didn't give him the boot over to Ultra JUMP much sooner. Not to mention the gore throughout the series...

    I'm sure nobody around here would want to read the Expansion chapers and see Princess Sheila suck poison out of things.
