I would assume it's the first chapter of volume 23. Volume 22 ends with ..
I've put it in spoiler tags ~eni
But wasnt said that 20th CB will end with this last final volume 22? Or am I mistaken o.o ?Originally Posted by Berserk
So you have read v22?Originally Posted by Berserk
I just remember that v21 ended with ...
hm ... well, maybe we just got it wrong and v23 is the final volume (tank release as promised in spring 2007 then?), not v22. But that's not bad at all, since I felt at the end of v21 that there's to much open plot to finish it in just one volume.Originally Posted by des
Lots of misinformed people in this thread...
In midsummer 2006, 20th Century Boys comes to a halt with Chapter 249. 21 volumes are already out, the remaining 13 chapters up through 249 are due to be collected into Volume 22 in October, according to the announcement that came with Chapter 249. Furthermore, the conclusion to the story is announced as coming next year.
October passes, and Volume 22 is rescheduled for December. It comes out, with Chapters 237-249.
A few weeks later, in Big Comic Spirits Issue #4-5, 2007 (this issue) the first chapter of the 20th Century Boys final arc is published (technically, Chapter 250). That's where we are now.
Thank you for the info, kforblack. That clears it up for me.
Well, the creditpage of the last scanlated chapter said that we will take a break of 6 months and get the final volume in 2007. I think that's the info most of us had.Originally Posted by kforblack
So I was surprised about the november release, of course.
I think, yes. And thank you for taking your time to tell us (with a rude undertone, though )Originally Posted by kforblack
thanx, i was like waiting forever for this stuff..... Dun even know if the story gonna end anytime soon or it gonna have another time skip...
Just in case people did not know,
Volume 22(the LAST volume of 20th Century Boys) has been released AND scanlated.
Here's a rapidshare link for the scanlation:- (note, this was not scanlated by Manga-Heaven)
Ok, sorry but i had to take the link down. Translation and RAWs were both used without permission. ~eni
The current chapter, which Des has posted about, is a chapter following volume 22. It is meant to be the beginning of the ending/explanation( man...major Matrix dialogues here xD) of 20th Century Boys and is entitled "21st Century Boys".
(So in short, the correct order to read it is, Volume 21 --> Volume 22 --> new 21st Century Boys chapter)
Thanks a lot sl^sh3r =) that finally clears up everything
I have to admit vol 22 is really strange...hope to get a translation for the newest chapter soon. If anyone finds something please inform us =)
That's what I thought. That's why I asked you which this chapter was, des
Thanks kforblack and sl^sh3r.
I'm going to modify the first post.
This whole mess comes from a credits page in vol 21...where is said that 22 would be the finale. Well mistakes happen. At least its solved now =)Originally Posted by Gold Knight
well technically volume 22 was the last volume because it did "end" the series.
The scanlations in that rapidshare link stole my translations.
I was going to put up a script for the new chapter provided it wasn't used for scanlations, but suddenly I don't feel like doing it anymore...
Uh thats pretty bad. Also the whole scanlation is more stolen than anything else...because they took it from jojohot(they dont want that people use their scans) and your script (as it seems without any permission =( )Originally Posted by kforblack
As a sidenote, you probably gonna translate it as your page stats. Would you give me the permission do use your script when you're done for a scanlation of this chapter? Because I am really interested in scanlating this =). (if not than its fine too )
edit: Okasy question already answered xD
that scanlation of volume 22 was available for months at the Naruto-Fan(oh noes~) 20th Century Boys Pimping Thread.
@kforblack -- PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE post the script for the new chapter.......
Hi, first of all i want to apologize to KFORBLACK because i`m the one who used his scripts to scanlate the volume 22 a few months ago.
I was following the series and i arrived to a point where no more material was released and i ended up stopped at last chapters of volume 21. I was searching a lot around the net and i found his scripts and jojohot raws (as someone else has stated). I wanted so hard to carry on the series so i decided to do the chapters for myself.
The biggest problem comes from the fact that i didn`t saw kforblack`s advisement about not sharing or using that scripts for scanlations, and that`s why i want to apologize to him. I know that now is too late (it`s completely extended around the internet, as i can see) but this is all i can do. I even contacted kforblack a few weeks ago (if you are reading me, perhaps you remember it) asking him if he was gonna translate the new chapter. Really, i never know he did not allow people to use his scripts.
About jojohot... i also didn`t know that they don`t allow people to use they scans, but i think it`s a different case, since all the pages have their logo, so it easy to see that the work is theirs.
If you have to say anything, please just say it. I just wanted to "finish" my favourite series without making anybody angry. Sorry.
P.D.: i`m not part of any scanlation group or anything related to it, just a fan of urasawa.
