wow, first post! :D i think.... :blink

This manga looks cool, and the story is good but the art work bugs me a little... not sure why though.

Its like theres too much detail in the artwork :P Sometimes its actually difficult to see what the drawing is :s

anyways, i give it 7,9/10

The summary sounds interesting, but looks like it's gonna be sad..one of those good classy tragics. I would read it. ^_^b

This manga is great! The art style is a little different than i'm used to but the story is good and it's presented in a hilarious way. I also like the way the main character resembles Vash from "Trigun" more than a little. As for his demon queen companion, i can't think of a character quite like her, but she is as entertaining as they come.

What is going on with Superior? I really enjoyed the first three chapters out but have not seen anything in a few months.

Thought I'd post this here in the event that someone didn't see the Baka-Updates thing.:)

Some fans of the series have decided to pick up the scanlation of the series where JanimeS left off(volume 8). You can find there site and releases *here* (http://superiorscans.blogspot.com/).:D

Also I suppose it's a little late to mention this but.....this forum thread seems to be in the wrong section. Superior is shounen not shoujo.:p

edit: All fixed now. Thanks.:D

Wow, quite a dead thread.:p

Anyway if anybody is still watching this thread. Superior is over and fully scanlated but fans worry not the series continues under the new name "Superior Cross (http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=42270)".

The first volume of which has been scanlated by ENXAME. So, in all, the story now has 10 scanlated volumes so far.:clap2

I've just found out some in Superior wiki. The vol 1 Superior Cross was released on 26/9/2009.Based on the process I guess that it usually takes 1 year for 2-3 vols.
Is there anyone know how and when the next chapters will appear? (chapter by chpater, monthly or sth likes that...)
I love this manga so much!
Rarely a female character I love that much! Sheila is so cute, yuusha is also cool >"<
P/S: Sr for my bad English >"<

Superior is now a completed series, quite a sweet ending too!

I was expecting something a little more tragic but I'm not going to complain.
