E-Name: The Wicked Eye Flies to the Full Moon
Got another fun seinen for you guys. It just started up in the Big Comic Spirits magazine this past issue and it looks like it could be really good. It's from Fujita Kazuhiro, the same guy who brought you Ushio to Tora and Karakuri Circus if any of you have heard of those titles.
Sadly, it's untranslated and I don't particularly have the time to translate it, but hopefully it interests some other translator enough to do it. I'll continue to provide RAWs from my site should I run across them.
The mountain gods have sent down a punishment to the people of Japan. An owl by the name of Minerva. All who fall under this owl's gaze die, their eyes spurting out blood. One man stood up to the owl, a famous hunter by the name of Uhei, however just as he was about to loose the finishing bullet, he was interrupted by the American army taking the owl into their care for study.
Thirteen years later, an American warship crashes into a Tokyo harbor, and all the men on board are dead, their eyes bleeding. The owl has been freed, and it now rampages throughout Tokyo, killing at random and in mass amounts. The American government has decided that only Uhei, the man who nearly killed the beast before, can help them. So they send the Delta Force and CIA out to see just how the bird can be brought down...

To perk up your interest even more, this manga features the one and only Mangekyou Sharingan owl. Just so you know.
It's the most random homicidal owl you're ever gonna see.
Yeah, I saw this.
I'd be tempted to do this series if it were monthly. I don't have the time to do another weekly series.
Sorry for the off-topic, but does exist scanlations of Ushio e Tora?
The series isn't even on MangaUpdates, so I'd doubt it. Unless it were licensed of course.
In any case, I hate having to translate something to get attention to it, but if I find some time I'll see about adding this to my 423589234905 other projects.
Zinny, if you manage to find time to do the first chapter at least, you are love!
If anyone is interested #lurk has the first volume of Ushio e Tora.
This does look pretty pimp. Homicidal owls, you can't go wrong with those...
This is a mini-series. AFAIK it will only last for five chapters. The 2nd one just got out.
If it's only a mini-series I may consider it. I've got so much other stuff on my list though. It does look pretty awesome, can't wait to see the whole thing completed.
Come to think of it, it would be kind of bad to drag out a homocidal owl over a long period of time. Only so much can be done with that.[br]Posted on: December 19, 2006, 06:11:17 PM_________________________________________________First post updated with chapters 2 and 3.
Apparently, this series ran for a bit longer than previously announced. Anyway, it ended with chapter 7.
Nice. I may look into translating it later if I find some time. Too many other projects. It would be great if someone would come by and do it for me though, heh.
What the damn. Thank you zindryr for this summary. This really looks interesting (in a weird way).
This looks lovely. The art is great to.
