    Belmonde le VisiteuR by Ishioka Shouei



    This is a new series that debuted in WSJ this week, by Ishioka Shomei.
    A story set in France classical era about a young man who is confined in a basement, and his supernatural powers?!


    To find out more, get the chapters from either the Latest R/T/S section or the Old R/T/S Section

    ------------------------------------------------

    Personally, when I just flip through the raws, I was amused by some scenes, but some mentioned that this might be a story of torture. Or could this be another 'solving mystery' type of story?

    Anyway, what do you people think?



    p.s. if possible, try not to ask about scanlation status here. ^^

    It seems creative and original. I think it's got a lot of potential to be a good story. The protagonist has a pretty cool ability, and he's just creepy enough that you get he's creepy, without his making you dislike him.

    Re: Belmonde De Visitor Discussion - New WSJ Series

    i'm not so sure on it yet. it's gone real deep too early, the pacing is a bullet. the story isn't bad, but i can't see how much further it could go without belmonde leaving what is pretty much his prison. And the art style seems to change quite a bit between a 3/4 view and a face on view, at least for that girl.

    but i have some hope for it. not as much as i have for HnC though

    Re: Belmonde De Visitor Discussion - New WSJ Series

    Well I liked the first chapter, and hope this one will continue like it. But I wonder if that guy stays in his room, he's got to get out of it.

    Maybe therefor the name belmonde le visiteur (wordplay: belmonde who visits the world)

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    this manga has some heavy torture scenes in it imho
    well not gory but very psychological

    I wonder how the story will go on.. he can't just stay in there (the side text sas something about him leaving the basement)

    I hope will not become one of this shonen fighting-mangas

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    I don't see this becoming a typical shounen fighting manga heh. I think it's pretty clever for a shounen series, and the story is much more mystery/adventure driven from what I can see. I can honestly say that I enjoyed it more than HnC's first chapter.

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    well i'm gonna take my problem's with the series with a touch of salt........ thats not the right phrase. damn.

    either way, if the name is indeed the right wordplay, and we do see him go into the world..... then it has unlimited potential.

    as long as the art sorts itself out some

    I actually like the art, although having character's heads stick out in front of the bars looks rather silly on some pages.
    And it's a manga with fencing weapons instead of katana, don't see those very much ^^ (Although I'm willing to bet that there will be a katana at one point in time, but meh)

    indeed, and this could be original. Why not having a mistery shounen serie instead of the action ones we always get


    chapter 02, again awesome how he forced someone to get information. This one really has potential...

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    I liked the first chapter of this manga so far. It does not look like that there will be any big fighting scenes but you never know.

    Anyways, I think Belmonde rocks, his powers are extraordinary.
    Spoiler show


    The story is quite amuzing for now but some of the art style could be better I think.

    Re: Belmonde le VisiteuR Discussion - New WSJ Series

    okay, chapter 2 seems to both look better and maintain the plot style, with a nice chunk of neuro-esque darkness to it. it's certainly improving, even if the substance for a large chapter felt all too short
