    Re: [FEATURED SERIES] Cross Game By Mitsuru Adachi

    I love this manga. I got into it a little while back, and while I'm not completely up to date on it yet, it's definitely taken a special place in my heart. The characters are all really intriguing and I find the writing to be very good. Adachi is quite talented at mixing up the melodramatic moments and the comedic moments well, without either one dominating the series too much.

    I recently got into this series and i instantly fell in love, the characters are heartfelt and its an amazing story from the get go. It is one of the few manga series I look forward to reading week after week.

    With that said i didn't really enjoy the ending of the first volume when

    But as things moved on everything sortof made sense, i still could have lived without that plot twist, but thats okay.

    You know what's worse? This hiatus of Adachi's couldn't have come at worse time. He wouldn't dare would he? No there's no possible way he would, is there? I mean he would totally be a heartless bastard if he were to:

    I love how well the characters are fleshed out... It's a perfect balance between shounen sport and slice of life

    Speaking of the hiatus, when is he scheduled back? I read the Hiatus was only until July, so he should be back soon right?

    Re: [FEATURED SERIES] Cross Game By Mitsuru Adachi

    The manga restarted in the Shounen Sunday that was released this week (Issue #35, released Wed, July 29). Does anyone know if the new chapter will be scanned and uploaded sometime soon? I'm dying to read it!!! >_<

    言っているそばから・・・

    Thank you, Hadora!!

    The new chapter is fantastic!!! I can't believe Aoba actually asked Kou that question!! I just wish we knew what the answer was! Even, or maybe especially, if it was a lie.

    Aghh, damn you Adachi. I wait so long, and now I have to wait another week at least to figure out if Akane's going to be okay. Anyways, it's good to have Cross Game back, and the chapter was good. Next week, I hope we get the surgery results and the start of the game.

    Well, Aoba certainly surprised me asking Koh that question out of the blue. I wonder what it was he said after asking if he could lie...

    With the surgery and the game starting, things are going to be really intense from here on forward.

    Phew, Surgery Success! Anyways, I guess the game starts next week. Can't really wait for it to start. It seems like it's been a long time since we've had an actual game. It'll be interesting to see how the best team is able to start off the game.

    Re: [FEATURED SERIES] Cross Game By Mitsuru Adachi

    It's a shame a good series like this doesn't get the recognition other shounen do, oh well. It took me a damn long time to post in this forum, so I'm part of the problem right (c;

    Anyway, a part of me wants Akane's surgery to fail, and a part of me doesn't. That part that wants to see it fail is the little devil in me that likes when characters in a shounen series die. The part of me that doesn't, is well... the normal part I guess.


    Although if she were to die, the only person's play it would effect would probably be Akaishi, the catcher. But I seriously doubt that'll happen.

    On the baseball side of things, the pitcher this time around isn't only a fastball pitcher, he has control over 5 pitches. I haven't read too many other Adachi series, but in H2 the main character really only used 2 pitches, fastball and change up. Yes, I know guys like Johann Santana are making millions with just those 2 pitches, but it makes for better baseball when there's something different than just a change in speeds coming at you.

    Anyway, that's pretty long, so I'll stop now.

    Re: [FEATURED SERIES] Cross Game By Mitsuru Adachi

    I had to laugh at the end of the chapter.

    I'm glad that we're about to see the game. It seems like things have been building up to this for quite some time, and I'll be looking forward to how it turns out. The tension is definitely going to be at the maximum level.

    I enjoyed seeing all the various characters in the stands this chapter. It was a small thing, but it was nice to see.
