But according to Katou, Kei's better than Gokuu AND Kenshirou.
When you're doing 1 v 1 comparisons (e.g. in sports), transitivity is not guaranteed to hold at all.
I just finished the seventh volume, and I guess that's it. The ending was a bit abrupt, but it wasn't bad.
Assuming the translation is accurate, the nerd in me wants to explain it as follows:
Anything in R^2 (ie. the xy-coordinate system) can be expressed in R^3 (xyz-coordinate system) but not vice...
Reminds me of (WARNING: Berserk spoiler ahead)
How Griffith is the white, holy hawk and Guts is the black, barbaric swordsman, yet Griffith is a reincarnated godhand who is pure evil whereas...
Looking back, in my opinion, Shamo should've ended with Volume 16.
That is, the end of the China / Liu arc. The Liu arc was the last really focused arc. Besides, the way the artist drew Ryo...
This chapter kicked ass. I can't wait for the translation.
In a Shakespearean tragedy, the titular character (protagonist) usually dies along with just about everybody else, including the antagonist.
Examples as follows:
In Hamlet, Hamlet (protagonist)...
My favorite is actually a series of three chapters: 165-167.
I just love how Izumi effortlessly dispatches all the vampire peons before choking a bit against Saitou. But as soon as he sees...
I proofed njt's chapter without knowing what the final page was. Like many others here, my jaw hit the floor in amazement.
What sucks is that these next three weeks coincide with grad school...
I also thought the chapter was better than the spoilers made it out to be. I agree with Rotten The Wizard that damn, Aizen is even stronger than we thought he was.
It wasn't just from punching the alien though, it was from doing so after it had been severely damaged from the alien's sound waves. Most likely throwing that punch while the suit was nearing it's...
Watchmen followed the comic fairly closely, but they modified the way Veidt achieved his "world piece." I guess in comparison to the other films you mentioned, this is a minor detail.
When I first started reading the manga, I noticed how that the chapters "read very quickly." So, for some time, I've felt that a live-action Gantz is doable.
My vision for a complete adaptation...
Thanks a lot, jdw!
In this fanart, Gaara is drawn with a gakuran uniform.
Is there a name for the wrapping that covers his stomach? That is, is it an actual style of dress, or was it just down for "artistic" effect?
Ah, that sucks.
I want to see how well Inoue fares against "The Fourth"!
Since January 25, 2008, the last three volumes of Shamo have been scanlated.
The last volume (25) to date was released in late 2006. The series has been on hiatus, but on the final page of the...
Thanks to beowulf for translating the problem area!

There was a ~6 month break between Chapter 301 and Chapter 302. If you check the archives, you'll find a plethora of "Miura will die before Berserk is finished" posts.
Basically, there's no fixed...
I believe at the beginning of the Arrancar Arc, Ishida Ryuuken said, "High speed regeneration is useless. Just kill it before it regenerates."
I couldn't agree more.
Even though 'epic' has become overused and has lost its meaning, it is truly one of the few words that can appropriately describe Berserk. We're talking about a comic that...
Right now, I really want to see Ichigo fire a cero. When he was fighting himself, his "hollowized" body was capable of firing a fingertip cero so powerful that in order to respond, Love...
IIRC, No. 9's tattoo was on the bone structure. To be fair, he didn't have any flesh, but still.
I think the Kei that is revived is the Kei that double teamed the Oni Boss. He's the most recent copy of pre-freedom Kei.
Tae is alive. IIRC, Reika resurrected Tae, Suzuki got Katou back, and Kaze got Nishi back.
I'd like to bump this thread. Souten Scans, of which I am not a member, has scanlated FotBS from Volume 1 Chapter 7 to Volume 4 Chapter 40.
I started reading Gantz in Summer 2007, so I read all the way up to 255 before starting the bi-weekly grind.
Is this arc officially the longest arc of Gantz thus far?
I agree. You can actually tell how Inoue's style changes as you read the 31 volumes of Slam Dunk. He goes from IMO a generic "Fist of the North Star" style to his distinct one.
I think this is the true reason. :)
Wow, Phase II was first hinted at way back in Chapter 108. I did not know that, thanks njt!
Not only is the image of Kurono from Chapter 210, but the numbers in the circles of the spoiler pic seem "fake."
Thanks for the reply, and here you go.
Had I not thought that the last page of SAO was a double-spread of…
Munsu looking at Aji Tae’s corpse
…, I too would feel that the ending was not good. I should have emphasized that my...
Isn't Anzu one of the few Osakan members who is not named after a comedian?
I thought we found that characters that are named after real people or are parodies of other characters have low...
I like voice humor, so I'm a big fan of hbi2k's spoofs.
Thank you so much Nami! No wonder I was confused that Classic 21 Pt. 9 is, in fact, the last chapter of SAO. The scanlation that I read when I made that post was missing about 20 pages!
Weren't these the translations The Hawks did? Flawed as they may be, I'm still thankful that The Hawks actually scanlated 30 volumes of one series.
I second Blade of the Immotal and Bastard!!
Omanga and the Hawks scanlated 10 volumes of Leviathan, but it seems that the last two volumes of the series are still MIA.
Yeah, as I recall it, Joutarou never really reunites with Musashi as a student. Instead, he becomes part of a gang of thieves. It was gradually revealed that the person initially in charge of...
Makes sense to me. I certainly don't see the Vaizards siding with Aizen, as some have speculated.
Is Classic 21 Part 9 the last chapter of Shin Angyo Onshi?
I like this explanation. It hadn't occurred to me when I first read that chapter, but it makes sense.
In the most recent chapter, Urahara is shown wearing his clogs.
Definitely. I never liked that theory to begin with. Prior to this arc, we knew that Zaraki and Kurotsuchi had not been captains for much longer than 110 years. Yet, the former had no sleeves while...
Is the Kurando that talks to Musashi a ghost?
Maybe Kenpachi learned how to hide his reiatsu. According to Kurosaki Isshin, controlling one's reiatsu is a fundamental technique that all captain-class shinigami possess.
According to Wikipedia, Raijin published volumes one through four. An Amazon search for "Fist of the Blue Sky" comes up with four volumes, as well.
Can you please give...
Thank you very much!
