This series is incredible. Thank you for picking it up.
Is anyone else (other than Kakashi Guy) going to scanlate this? I want at least a MQ release (I consider that release LQ) That...ugh...didn't even put the double pages together =T
Cause the series looks interesting...
Need MQ scanlation! D<

hmmm, this manga is definitely interesting ^_^
I liked the first chapter but I do not know if this will remain my cup of tea. Strangely but I have never been into tournament manga. I do like fighting manga but I do hope this will be more an adventure to the big tournament. If it'll go that way then I'll see myself enjoying and reading this
Are there already people working on an english translation/ scanlation of chapter 2/3 ?
Translation of chapter 2 is done for quite a while now though. Translation of chapter 3 will come once I can clear my schedule, and probably after someone scanlate the second chapter.
As for scanlation status, maybe ask those who did the first chapter? They should be able to at least give a lot better answer than I can regarding that.
Caught up with latest chapters. I like this. There's not much in-depth but the story itself is really interesting. I like these fights and I definitely look forward to what this manga will bring to us in the near future. I'd like to see how the boss will react to their first loss. Anyway, don't trust these maffia
Does anyone know what the licensing issues are with this manga at the moment? Hopefully nothing that will affect it for too long!
how come this doesn't come out on raw-paradise
So, Flags is stopped still?
I almos cry, is a good manga , or was...
It's not allow on MH because it's published by Kodansha.
The scans are still coming out, just go to Ala Atra Scans.
