    Re: [NEW] Arago by Arai Takahiro

    Chapter 1 was pretty good. There is potential. Patchman is a worthwhile villain, assuming he returns. Arago is a solid shonen hero. Definitely more adult than the average weekly shonen series. The art was good, the plot was solid. I will definitely continue reading.

    Re: [NEW] Arago by Arai Takahiro

    Very action packed, fast paced 1st chapter. I would have liked to see more personality from the two brothers. They seem to be the boring type, nothing really special. Patchman on the other hand is a good villain in my eyes. Gives off that creepiness vibe and I want to see how deformed his body is. I would describe Arago between a mix of Chad from Bleach and Natsu from Fairy Tail. I want to know more about him. I enjoyed the ending, I will continue reading in hopes it gets better.

    Re: [NEW] Arago by Arai Takahiro

    Same over here, it's the manga that started pretty good and which asks for more. I, on the contrary, hope that patchman is gone for good. I believe he was that hurdle to set up an adventure for Arago. His hand seems to have an enormous power that can suck up energy or something else (going by the last scene with the flower).

    I am not keen on the art but that happens a lot. I mostly adapt to it and start to appreciate it later on

    I look foward to more

    Re: [NEW] Arago by Arai Takahiro

    The only thing I don't like about the art is how he draws hair. Reminds me to much of Getbackers
    My fear is that if there is no Patchman, no ultimate villain, this could become Conan with magic powers - a never ending loop of episodic, short arc mysteries. An over reaching story - Arago seeking revenge, Patchman seeking a new body - would give the series a nice framework. Not that I am bound to Patchman, just something that keeps this from being a mystery of the week type series. If there is no main villain, One Piece style long arcs would work well too.

    Well overthinking the whole thing, I have to agree with you

    Patchman prolly has his reasons to hunt down arago and some things about him weren't explained. Yeah, you're probably right, maybe he'll show up later on because he has his issues with arago for some reason.

    I hope we'll get some explanation later on about arago's power/arm. I'd like to know more about it.

    Re: [NEW] Arago by Arai Takahiro

    It doesn't have to be Patchman, he's just the most obvious, but anything to give the story more coherence than "policeman with super powers". I happened to have liked the art for Patchman, the main reason I'd like to see him come back. At least for the time being I would not mind if an overarching plot moves to the background so that the focus can be on established Arago's personality and story setting a bit. Considering that Takahiro did not write his first serialization I'm curious how good he is.

    Surely it won't go the way of Conan. Sunday already has one never ending detective manga, they don't need another one

    RAW of chapter 2 is out: Here.
    I await translation. XD
    The break of two weeks there hasn't been, and probably there will not even next week, even though RAW paradise says yes.

    Raws for the big shonen magazines seem to be coming out a week early, but that just means that the week break for us comes next week.

    Great first chapter, I'm liking the whole Super Police VS Urban Legend angle and I really hope that continues.
