    I didn't catch it the first time but the cola is most likely from Diane and her husband's cola company. I forgot the name of the company and his name, haha. I love to see everything intertwine and come together like this.

    Re: Billy Bat by Urasawa Naoki

    Before i read Billy Bat i don't even know that the WTC architect is a Japanese-American! I am pretty impressed with the way Urasawa-sensei mix pop culture and historical elements in Billy Bat. I could have made a book only from listing all of the references x__X

    I also don't realize Jackie's father is the cab driver that drive Diane. Thanks for mentioning it.

    Re: Billy Bat by Urasawa Naoki

    I just want to pop in and let you all know that there's another soul out there
    admiring this piece of work!

    I start picking this up around ch.47 or so, it's the chapter that's showing Kevin's
    assistance leaving him to join up with 'Disney,' so it's a betrayal right there.

    This manga is so good to read, the timelines going differently and jointing at
    unexpected spots are sooo interesting lol.
    Really thx for mangastream and their works, along with the Astroboy Pluto from
    the author's last work. Back when Pluto was being released I was really upset that
    I didn't read carefully on the originaly astroboy when I could have gotten the chance.
    I just don't know how the original Pluto arc played out and how different it is from the
    new one.

    As for this chapter, the last page, which is usually the twist that Billybat offers on every
    single chapter, you see Jackie is standing on a bat shadow.
    That, I know, happened before as well on Kevin, it's after ch.20 or so, when he was
    running across a street. I pointed this out because this 'glimpse' of a shadow can
    be used to explain the 'marking' that of which can be used to cast on to the moon
    surface. (it's like, that's not necessary a marking of a bat, but a mere shadow).

    I wish there's a compilation of all the historical figures that appeared in this manga.
    ^ ^

    The wikipedia for Billy Bat is sort of doing that by linking the names of historical figures to their actual articles, but it could use some work!

    Re: Billy Bat by Urasawa Naoki

    Billy Bat is an overall amazing manga!

    The plot is great - like somebody mentioned before: The mix between pop culture and historical elements is epic.
    The art is also great. Often very detailed and realistic. It's perfect for this kind of story.
    Characters are also good. The way they're introduced are always well done, and their development is also good.

    I really look forward to getting an ending to this manga. Bet it will be epic, with a lots of plot twists and "WOW"-moments.

    Re: Billy Bat by Urasawa Naoki

    Recent chapters have been the long awaited development, not sure if this is the final development in the story though, Naoki may take this to 9/11 as well, he foreshadowed it as well. I kind of get the feeling Billy and Kevin are one and the same, it may all be in his head, or a few people are having the same dream. :P

    Next chapter is killer, literally, though Naoki may take us back to prehistoric times as a twist.

    Re: Billy Bat by Urasawa Naoki

    I really hope he'll take it to 9/11 as well. Could be awesome.

    I also get the feeling that Billy and Kevin are one and the same. Chapter 58 strenghtened this belief a lot, when the manga switched between Billy and Kevin doing the exact same thing.

    And 2012, Billy said something about it when he appeared to Kevin once. But the Kennedy assassination is key, if that happens things will continue to happen as written in history, if not things will change. Possibly leading to the 3rd world war that was also mentioned. If Kennedy remains alive which will not be historically accurate with real life history the war will happen. I believe, something that might have happened during the cold war.

    Billy said to the Japanese American girl, I forgot her name that something has to happen in order for events to go the way they are. If it does not happen it will be bad, and the war will break out. And Kevin is probably the "good" Billy as opposed to the other which may be Oswald.

    Well that only leaves us questioning on what happened to Oswald in the building, it is obvious to say the guy with the hat and glasses shot JFK, but what can you do, Oswald must be pretty quick to hide the gun from the time the girl went from the window to him.

    Chapter 60 out! Interesting and good indeed. The art of Urasawa knock me down every time a new chapter's published. It's so beautiful and realistic.

    For a second there I though that Oswald was admitting to the assassination of Kennedy, though it was for that other guy, really nice connection in the story, now the only role left unknown is the Japanese girl, what does she have to do with it?

    Jackie is another "chosen" person. She and Kevin need to go to Japan to find Kanbe's scroll where it's buried now. Then something else happens I guess.
