Trying it. :)

EDIT: Just read the first volume. Cool stuff. Haven't seen too many stories where protagonist is actually a criminal from hell with an "opportunity" to get out, although it looks more like Hell is just using him. Kinda reminds me of Ghost Rider in a way (Marvel character who's pretty much going thru the same thing right now). ;)

Wow, didn't know about this series but looks great. I'll try it for sure.

Thanks for the info!

Edit: Read the 1st volume: I think it's too dark for me, but it's a good manga anyway.

Featured complete... ehm... cancelled/dropped... shounen manga of Decembr :clap

I can't believe this actually got dropped. It's a damn sweet manga. I read it ages ago, but it's still one of the better Shounens I've read.

December 09, 2008, 12:17 PM
Indeed, it's really hard to believe.

I'm also positive that the remaining story (without introducing any new chars and issues) could have been resolved within two more volumes in a satisfying way (maybe even slightly rushed within one). So, it's all the more hard to understand to me why he couldn't finish it in a proper way ._.

This could easily be picked up by the author again and completed :3 I wish he'd do it.

What else has he made?

December 09, 2008, 01:14 PM
Yes, he could pick up anytime again but since the following series was dropped as well, I have not much hope that he'll ever does ._.

What else has he made?

Well, Togari is from 2001, Kurozakuro (http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=1377) from 2004 (also dropped) and recently in early 2008 a Batman mini series for DC Comics.

I would like to say that Natsume decided to create a sequel to Togari.

It is being serialized in Monthly Comic Flapper, for those who wanted to know.

The sequel is to be known as Togari: Shiro.

wow..this is good news. i hope some group picks the sequel, the ending of togari was terrible.

wow..this is good news. i hope some group picks the sequel, the ending of togari was terrible. That was because Shonen Sunday cancelled it. It wasn't Natsume's decision. I would think he'd want to make it a lot better, if he had a choice.
