    As long as it works, I think it will continue and there is no planning of the end. I don't want to have any high expectation about the outcome of the romance. Generally, Mangaka do not want to conclude this kind of thing.

    I've already translated up to the end of volume 4, and I can translate (if motivated) a full volume in a day.

    But, yeah. The site that had the mangas went down, and I don't know where to get them anymore.

    Saru Lock gets a TV drama and a film. Makes me curious and want to see the result, though Japanese Drama is not my thing. They prefer to show goofy gags to actual character development.

    Re: Saru Lock by Serizawa Naoki

    I was thinking a live action of Saru Lock could be very good.
    I won't re-tell what I said in Spray King's thread, but Saru Lock shows the urbanity very well. We could have a bunch of weirdos, a hypnotic scenery of the lights of a city during the night and a euphoric mood going through the screen with deafening electronic music and decadent images with alcohol, drugs and s~x.

    Action scenes could also be innovative with the created tension when Saru tries to open a door. It would be a different means to create some intensity during these scenes with other things than runs and stunts. And the noise of a key turning in a lock is kinda interesting imo. There is something there to do.

    They could do it similar to how they made the 'hack' scenes in Bloody Monday aka giving some visual goodies by e.g. showing how the inside of the lock opens ^^

    But yes, seems it will be full of gags. Typical dorama

    Noooooooooo!!! What was that? Saru looks more idiotic than in the manga. And what's the hell with this position? I don't remember Saru having any constipation.

    I have not watched it, so I tried youtube. Is the following scene representative of what it is in the series?

    Your remark make me think of this amazing scene in Fight Club that explains how the apartment blows up.

    Nevertheless, if I find the drama on youtube, I will give it a try out of curiosity.

    Looks a little goofy, huh? ._.

    Well, I'd say that's typical for Japanese TV dramas. Let's wait and see how it's overall impression is. The girl who plays Ritsuko also played a supporting role in Bloody Monday and did quite well. If she does the same here, it will fit her.

    I haven't seen Fight Club but yes, like this. And also his trademark, the falcon, flies visually into the places that he hacks. Doors are closing and the falcon has to escape while it blends over with computer terminals and the protagonist's face. Really nice eyecandy:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bo66uJd1q_w

    A main problem (for us Western viewers) is the Japanese acting which is always somehow over the top. While I have my favorite dorama and movies, even there I need to giggle on this typical 'overacting' sometimes. So I don't expect Saru to be any better. I just hope that the goofyness will have it limits when it comes to the 'cool' scenes

    Anyways, I look forward to the first episode. The way they'll do the 'introduction' scene in the beginning will already tell us a lot

    Great manga-laughed my ass off.But its shame that it doesn’t have many scanlations-I mean,out of 21 RAW volumes it has only 29 chapters scanlated!!!So I beg someone to take it and translate it all-its worth it

    You make it sound like scanlating Saru Lock is an easy job.
