    Verdant Lord by Takashige Hiroshi & Soga Atsushi

    Another story by the great Takashige Hiroshi, (who wrote the stories for both Spriggan and Until Death Do Us Part), Verdant Lord is set in the near future where Mother Nature has decided to fight back against all of the human encroachment.

    It has your standard apocalyptic scenario, but we're right in the middle of the apocalypse actually happening, rather than the aftermath. Vines and foliage entangle cities, as large wooden mech-like creatures called Arethusa (named after one of the mythical Greek Hesperides that tended the gardens in a remote corner of the world) rampage through cities.

    Our main character is Souma Shin, a punk kid out of Japan. We start off with him coming to visit his twin (?) brother Ken. All hell breaks loose as Shin finds a group of small kids being used for military purposes, and tries to save them in the confusion created by an Arethusa invading the compound.

    RAWs
    Volumes 1-5

    Scanlations
    None.

    Verdant Lord hasn't been scanlated by anyone yet, and 5 volumes are out. Each volume basically contains one action-packed chapter with plenty of science content. I've heard interest in scanlating this from Strays, (new group that did most of the recent Vagabond releases), but I personally can't translate so it would need another translator. There is no furigana as this is a seinen, and there is science content, so beware if you aren't used to translating that.

    I will be posting links to the other 5 volumes (RAW) as soon as I have them hosted. Enjoy, and if anyone decides to scanlate, please post about it here. It would be a shame for this to go unnoticed by scanlators. It is a great series.

    Re: Verdant Lord

    looks pretty cool. I always like how people who are evil or have something wrong with them mentally put their hands in front of their faces, as if it is supposed to mean something...

    I hope someone does do it though.

    Actually. He has something wrong with the other side of his face that you can't see there. It's not a subconscious covering of his face, it's jut what he doesn't want anyone to see. Check the RAW out, you'll see what happens kind of.

    I'm definitely interested in this. After my exam, I'll try hunting for a translator. Thanks for sharing, zindryr.

    Haha Seidhr. I was going to suggest that we consider this for a Strays project, but it looks like that won't be necessary...

    How much Spriggan is there? I actually wasn't aware there was anymore besides the movie. I enjoyed it and would really wanna read the manga.

    Spriggan Thread: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/index.php?topic=9859.0
    11 volumes total.

    If no one jumps on this by the time I'm caught up with Until Death Do Us Part, I'll consider it, but that's still a long ways away.

    Re: Verdant Lord

    Ohhh, I totally missed this thread

    I'm not that big fan of Spriggan or sci-fic storys, but the cover of "Until Death Do Us Part" attract me to the manga and the story isn't that bad either.
    Now again I stare at this cover and want to try it out. I have to wait till my DSl connection is fixed, but damn - it looks great

    @zindryr ... is Takashige the write and the artist? I know that he worked with a partner on Spriggan, but there aren't any infos for the new ones. I really love the UDDUP art.
    And I'm glad you're pushing Seinen so much forward at MH, thank you

    Re: Verdant Lord

    Nope, Takashige Hiroshi is only the writer. The artists vary. Minagawa Ryouji is the artist for Spriggan. Double-S is the artist for Until Death Do Us Part. And Soga Atsushi is the artist for Verdant Lord.
