Series begins in Weekly Shounen Magazine 2009 #24 (release date 16 may 2009 )
About the series:
"Middle Edo Period -- One country becomes the gathering place of all the sinful martial artists, who believe in nothing other than power, and know of no other way of life other than letting oneself go wild in the battle. That country's name is Unabara, the "Haunt of Demons" . . ."
Washitzu Naosata, the ruler of Unabara, is looking for his successor. He calls upon all his 31 sons, and tells them to search for whoever they believe to be the strongest martial artist of all. Each of their chosen martial artists will then fight against each other until only one is left standing. Whoever is the winner, whoever has the strongest martial artist in nation by his side will become his successor . . .
Out in the midst of the mountain is the dojo of the "Ogame Ryuu" (Giant Tortoise Style). There lives Kurogane Gama, the son of the legendary swordsman, Kurogane Jinsuke, who is believed to be able to kill 1000 martial artists in Unabara. There, one of the son of Washitzu Naosata, Washitzu Naoyoshi, comes in search of the legendary swordsman, only to find that he had gone missing several years ago. After seeing the battle style of Gama, he instead chooses to ask Gama to come with him. Wanting to become stronger, Gama agrees to his offer, and that marks the beginning of Gama's battle to become the strongest of all . . .
About the Author:
Woahhh nice I'll try to read this one..hehe i thought it was gintoki from gintama
If anyone wants a...I'll just call it a preview translation, even though it's the full translation of the first chapter ( ), it's here. The only reason why I call it a preview translation is because it isn't proofreaded yet, so I don't allow it to be used as scanlation. Unless the scanlator wants to proofread it themselves, they'll have to wait till Amit gives me back the proofreaded script and I post it in MH, so...enjoy the preview...>_<"
I've also got the second chapter of Gamaran available here although it also shouldn't be used for scanlation until chapter 1 has been proofread and released. Ju-da-su and I will be sharing translation of this series with one of us doing one chapter and then the other person does the next one.
Chapter 3 translation "preview" is here.
Am still waiting for the proofreader, sorry...>_<"
Thanks to both of you. Wish I had time to scanlate this
i was able to do chapter one ^^ thx alot guys for the trans
n thx to rena-chan ^_^
aneways hope u continue translating i like the series alot
masata ownz !!
Solid series and good enough to be entertaining.
There is a good flow in an unoriginal story (I don't read Baki but it seems to be Baki's plot in the period with samurais) and the art is good though I have seen mangas with more dynamic panels for the fights.
There may be too long explanations of the fight styles during the battles.
I have not found the characters outstanding neither annoying.
So, yeah, it is your typical shounen fighting manga.
