    Zombie Powder by Kubo Tite

    So I was at the book store the other day and I noticed the book Zombie Powder. Tite Kubo being the other caught my eye, so I decided to read it. Anyone else read this? What are your thoughts or ideas on it?

    Re: Zombie Powder

    pah. it was an editors decision with no further information available, aside from the obvious rumour that tites mental health wasnt good enough to warrant him continuing (as in volume 3s slip suggesting)

    and zombie powder is still one of the best mangas out there, even if the ending is inconclusive and annoying.

    Not really. There wasn't a single thing with those in it. It was a typical Shounen title. And quite good.

    I quite liked it. I wish Kubo had continued, but it was said that not enugh people read it so he got discouraged and stopped during the middle of Volume 4, or something. It was getting interesting as well...

    Actually, I think it'd be just as good as Bleach if he ever continued. You can't really compare a 25 volume manga which is still going strong and continuing, with a cut short Volume 4 manga.

    If you guys have the time to read it, I suggest you do so.

    You'd be surprised and amused to see alot of characters resembling alot of Bleach characters now. And theri personalities even. It's hilarious. XD

    I guess your right about the comparison between a 4 Volume manga and a 25 volume manga. I think Gamma Akutabi is pretty cool too.

    Merry Christmas!

    And yeah, Gamma's cool too. He has bits and pieces of Ichigo in him too. But I like that girl more. But I can't rmember her anme >< The reporter...

    And too bad Kubo stopped there...I wanted to know more about Gamma's back story.

    Re: Zombie Powder

    wolfgangina lola ghetto or something. yeah, im too lazy to grab my viz release.
    and the art to me had a lot more going for it (the clean-ness and crispness particularly), and perhaps if there wasnt the mystery ending, itd still be going strong now. but then thered be no bleach. damn. honestly, itd just be nice if he went back to it with a series of specials or something when hes done with bleach. in 2015. or something

    Re: Zombie Powder

    i never read this series but if it is as good as some of you say, than i might as well try it.

    I_M, your right about one thing, bleach will end a long long time from now but i doubt any mangaka has gone back and "finished" a series that was cancelled.

    I read Zombie powder and it was excellent imo. However, I wouldn't recommend reading it because it gets better and better then it comes to a sudden stop!
