    Re: Billy Bat by Urasawa Naoki

    Interesting points there R4n.

    I'm sure Urasawa is definitely playing with those parallels you mentioned, especially with the Oswald the rabbit bit. I honestly didn't even know there was a character until I read the chapters and did a little research. That's where I learned about Ub Iwerks, as I didn't even know about him before. Looking at that wikipedia photo is kinda creepy when you think of the manga...but I think that's exactly what Urasawa is after.

    I'm not sure if Urasawa "hates" Disney though. But who knows, this story still feels like it's just begun...

    Finished an entire years worth of BB in a few days and it was great. I couldn't help but think that Diane is pregnant with Barack Obama. I know it doesn't even make sense with the roles of black and white being reversed. He was born in Hawaii and I doubt that's where they are going. Urasawa is focusing on Kenned right now so I thought of different presidents he might introduce. It's on extremely long stretch that's not going to happen but I await what Urasawa plans to do.

    I wonder if the cab driver that picked up Diane will appear sooner or later since he was talking to the Billy Bat accessory hanging from the rear-view mirror.

    So what is the release date for chapter 50? Now that we are caught up we will have it the same week as it comes out in Japan with a few days after the actual release right?

    Re: Billy Bat by Urasawa Naoki

    (new Billy Bat fan over here) I think there is an incredible mind-screw going on with the series. You have a Walt Disney parallel, Oswald being both Disney's first creation AND the name of Kennedy's assassin, and it's so refreshing that modern history can be retold as being part of this mega conspiracy. xD

    Spoiler show


    What I'm most curious about is how literal we are supposed to believe the bat has been around for. If he's been around since the time of Jesus, then....could he be older? (if taken at face value).

    What I find really cool is how the series first started off taking place in Japan, but there really isn't a fixed setting for it. It jumps all over the place, and it makes everyone much more interesting than a lot of other manga which tends to be Japan-centric.

    I don't know what to say most of the time. I sit back and enjoy the ride because I don't know what Urasawa will do next. The last page on chapter 50 made me laugh. It is a serious moment but I couldn't help myself because Yamagata's face does a 360 in a split second.

    I agree with you there, it is very hard to comment on some of Urasawa's works except for how great they are. But I felt like the series did not get enough attention because I know his previous works have many fans.

    Also about your idea in a previous post, I would put it in a spoiler I guess, for those who have not caught up.

    So:

    I agree with Akiyama. I prefer to enjoy the ride, though sometimes i wish this thread has more activity. It is the only BB thread i read

    For the sake of saying something, i want to point out that there is a Nostradamus reference in chapter 50. I love how Urasawa-sensei put historical and pop culture references into his works and mix it together. It is interesting.

    Well having an active thread indicates to me that there are people who read good seinen manga out there, and that Billy Bat overall has support. It is interest that will allow it to be scanned, and plus we get it weekly now, it is regular releases from now on.

    I just want to see the seinen section active is all. Like I have said in the MH seinen hangout thread.
