EDIT: Raw's up here: http://mangahelpers.com/downloads/details/64495
I just want to try something out. This is Thai original manga, serialized in C-Kids, which is one of Thai equivalences to WSJ (another one being Boom, but it's published by another publisher. WSJ manga just divide out between those two).
สำหรับสำนักพิมพ์สยามอินเตอร์ ถ้าต้องการให้ผมหยุดทำก็กรุณาบอกผมก่อนด้วยล่ะกันนะครับ เพราะผมตั้งใจว่า ถ้าสำนักพิมพ์บอกให้หยุดก็จะหยุดไปเลยอยู่แล้วอ่ะครับ เพราะรู้ดีว่าผิดลิขสิทธิอย่างจัง ตามที่ผมเขียนไป ผมเพียงแค่คิดว่าการ์ตูนดีๆของไทยเรา น่าจะให้คนต่างชาติได้ร่วมสนุกด้วยเท่านั้น ถ้าทางสำนักพิมพ์มาเห็นและไม่พอใจประการใด กรุณาติดต่อผมบอกให้เลิกได้เลยนะครับ
Please proofread before any use.EXEcutional
Chapter 1 "Light the Universe"
Hurry! Those hellish light bulbs are coming closer and closer, but why should I fear it when I have my powerful bomb that can blast out even...GAAH!! There's a wall in front of me.
Low-k series #1 Bomberman
Here comes the MIDNIGHT COMPANY!!
[I thought they said to make an intro?]
Warning!! Once you open this book, you'll find one silly cartoon which is a complete nonsense.
This story, EXEcutional, is an action comic with the plot set on an online game. Ah!! But don't associate this with the mundane online game-based comic, since we have lots of mysteries waiting up ahead. I have a lot of fun drawing the action scene, so I guarantee the bloody fighting all throughout this comic.
While you're reading this comic, I'm working on around chapter 30 of the original along with thinking up new possibilities to make the story more interesting,
(while my artwork still sucks. Haha. Believe me, even though we give the importance to putting in more entertainment to the story, we're working on improving our artwork as well.)
Other than this, I also have my other work, L->R (Love Rotation), which is serialized in Fusion. The plots of these two are completely different from one another, but please do support that as well.
My collaboration with Mr. Ui or Panuwat Wattananukul comes out to be better than I've expected. This is because he has his work published by another publisher before, named Angel Delivery. That too is liked by comic fans, including myself.
When we first met to talk about our collaboration, the atmosphere wass filled with pleasure and excitement that I'll be able to meet with a new working partner. Another feeling I felt is as if I'll be able to meet with my idol writer. That time, he made me surprised on two things.
After I had inquired him enough, and made sure that I've asked him about the ending of Angel Delivery. (Haha, but though my etiquette, I cannot say it to the public.) he said to me "You know...I want to work on a weekly comic." Such powerful words, for a person like him who is working alone with his assistance still in his monkshood. I let him presents to me the story that he wanted to write. He talked about the action comic, the online fantasy which has an enormous server beyond one can imagine, named "EXEcutinal: The Online Epic over the Universe", which you should know now how unbelievable the world of Neo Universe is. When he showed me the character designs, I was then surprised for the second time. All the characters are innocent-looking boys. The confusion was shown on my face, as if wondering whether he showed me the wrong thing. He then explained to me that his last work was focused on pretty, little girls as characters. This time, he wants to change to more innocent-looking boys...OMG...till today, the innocent-looking boy named Ganda, which has a name of a girl, remains deep in my memory.
This first volume of EXEcutional that you have here is the first step into the world of Neo Universe. More will comes in a short while, we can guarantee...

Announcer - Next up is the current events!!
Science nowadays has rapidly improved!!
Even though we still can't use telepathy or magic like in fiction,
our psychotechnology has been widely developed in these past 10 years.
Right now is a good time
for us to step into the new era.
Today is the day which the game Neo Universe had been released for one full month.
This is the online game which take the player's soul into the world of cyber space,
the only game with such technology.
Though the players might feel unease about this technology at first...
the game still keeps its security at 100% up to now.
Not only that, it makes a great hit into the market,
with soaring number of players.
Ganda - Oww.
-- Ganda. 17 years old. The hero!! --
Whoa!! My-...My TV~!!
Dammit! Don't break down, alright? I am broke right now.
Friend - Is that you, Ganda?
When're you coming into Neo Universe!!?
We're waiting for you.
Ganda - I have no money to buy it. Just wait till next month.
Friend - Your big bros is a GM there, no? Just ask him to give you one...!!
Ganda - Are you nuts?
Postman - Please sign here.
Ganda - Alright, alright.
Friend - With his high position, just a single game for you should be a piece of cake.
Ganda - Piece of cake my ass!!
I can’t just ask for a product on sale...
Letter - Ganda,
I've sent you this Neo Universe since I know that you didn't buy it yet. Since I'm a GM, I can buy it for cheap. If you still want to become a GM, then login to the game. I'll be waiting for you.
Ganda - What?
Announcement - I repeat!! If you still don't want to try...or postponing it to some other day, this game, the Neo Universe, is the gigantic online game
which uses the technology you'll never find in any other games. With only the console and the earphone in hand, the player will be taken into the world of virtual RPG.
With all the challenges from our dungeons and monsters as you like,
you can forget about fighting with boring monsters over and over again, because we have more for you!!
Meet with the classical RPG world which you might've already forgotten. You'll feel like you're in the world of imagination which you experienced in the game you played when you're young [if you're already born then.]
Try out this brand new universe like you've never felt before, and you'll know how fun this distorted world is...
Ganda - And at that time,
I, Ganda, a 17 years old boy, has login to the Neo Universe for the first time...I was lucky that my brother sent me this game. Otherwise, I wouldn't stand a chance of playing it this month.
My brother, Vissana, was an administrator of the game with the position of GM, or "Game Master".
GMs are keepers of justice in this game. I too want to become a GM someday.
Since my brother let me register into this game, this is my chance now.
This is so cool...but say, I forgot the map my brother gave me.
Guess I'll ask those people...
Player - [Help me~]
Ganda - Hi there!! What're you two playing?
Player - Help me. He's killing me.
Browser - Huh!
If yer dont wanna die, then fuck off!!
Ganda - What? I was just asking for direction.
Browser - Ya kid!! Yer know who I am?
Ganda - Huh? Nope.
Browser - Idiot!! Cant ya tell? Im a Bully!
Im a Bully who's born to bully!
And now, Im bullyin’ a weaklin’ like dis brat!
So fuck yer ass off before I bully ya!!
Ganda - If you say so, then I can't just stand back then.
Do you know who I am? I'm a candidate for GM!!
You can't bully a weaker person with me around!!
??? - [What?]
A candidate for GM, hm?
Hey, you look pretty strong?
Which job are you anyway?
Ganda - Don't know. I just got into the game.
Browser - Hehe, Im da boss of dis place, ya know!!!
Im Browser, and Im level 9. Who do ya think ya are, to come to challenge me like dis!!?
Ganda - Haha! I'm Ganda. I just enter this game a short while back,
and my level is...
Can you tell me where can I look up my level?
??? - [I really pity this guy.]
Just look in your pocket! There should be an ID card in there...click on the right button.
Ganda - Eh, what?
Oh! Found it!
Card - LEVEL 1
??? - I knew it.
Ganda - I'm Level 1~!
??? - And why the hell are you telling him that you're weak!!?
Browser - Enough of dat! Now die!!
Ganda - Heh!! That kind of thing won't-...
G-...GWAH!! What is- GAAARGH -that number...ARGH
??? - Are you going to cough out blood, vomit or talk? Just choose one!!
That number is the damage point.
You're done for if he gets another hit on you! Take out your weapon!!
!? A treasure box!!
Browser - DIE~!!
??? - He dodged it. The reaction was pretty good.
And he summoned out a treasure box as his weapon? Which job exactly is he?
His carefree yet determined eyes aren't bad as well.
It'd be regretful if I let him die. Plus, I didn't even know yet which job he is.
Browser - Wha...What da!!
What da fuck is dis thing around my legs!?
??? - I'll help him then.
Come on out, "Slime Flower"!!
Browser - AARGH!
Ganda - An-...And what am I supposed to do with just one box?
O-...Open up, dammit.
Th-...The weapon came out of the box!!
Here I go~!!
Browser - What the!! Wait a sec~!!
??? - If you don't want to game-overed, then ask someone to revive you!!
But well, people around here are sick of your face already though, right?
Browser - Nngh!!
Ganda - There! Serve you right!!
Thanks. You really helped a lot!!
??? - I'm the one doing all that.
Ganda - Can you help me with one more thing!!?
??? - What's it?
Ganda - Do you know which way is the GM Headquarter?
??? - I'll lead you the way then!!
Haven't seen someone with potential like you for ages.
Ganda - Wow, I never know that the GM Headquarter is underground like this.
??? - Well, everything has to be as expedient and secure as possible.
This place is perfect for that.
You can call it a secret base, if you want.
Give me the key to the 1st Division room.
Ganda - Yes, this got to be it.
I'm about to become a GM now.
I-...Is this the GM room!!?
??? - Register your name here.
Ganda - I-...It's nothing like what I've imagined!?
??? - That's really rude. Just sign your name already!!
Ganda - No need to be so angry...
??? - You're done now, right?
You can no longer withdraw now...
Welcome to our troop, new member!!
We are the anti-GM 1st Division!!!
[At least there's the word GM in it, but with completely different meaning...]
Thank you for reading...
