That's why we stickied this one. It needs more love (aka: translators >.>)
But yes, a wonderful series. Already started it a while ago and caught up now because it was raised in a few discussions and highly recommended by everyone who has read it. I can only step in line and second all the recommendations.
the drawing style's great. Love it.
Chapter 16's nearly done btw.
Hello thar. :P
And a boost in the proofing and quality checking would be cool.
Ooooo! featured! That makes me so excited!
Yeah, we need good proofreaders... I think we need PRs more than TLers >.>
It makes me so happy that AnK is getting recognition <3 tis awesome. we've got a loooong way to go though.
I've just read all the Soccer Mangas I could find that wasn't Shoujo, I did enjoy this and I do want more. But whats up with killing a cool character? Sports Mangas are supposed to be funny not dramatic xD.
Hm, I find it refreshing. Most sports manga I've read are comedy, it gets boring after a while >.>
I remember that the Attak No.1 anime impressed me as child especially because of the drama (torturing training, serious problems, illness, death). That was very unusual for a 'children's cartoon' and in the end what made it outstanding.
My problem with the dramatic ones are that it's alot easier to predict whats going to happen. But it is kind of refreshing to read something else. Though I do wish the scans would be further in. Fantastica is also kind of cool to read as a soccer manga, Whistle on the other hand reminds too much of Fantastica to be any good. I feel all sports mangas end up with the same thing. But mjeh.
Does anybody know if Whistle is completed or if the scanlators just decided to drop it?
That´s pretty much it. It´s just the "slice of life" side of the sports genre coming into play.
Whistle came out earlier, ya know. Just by a little, but still.
Also, Shou >>> Teppei as a main character.
I mean, come on. What´s so fun about a main character that´s a fantastic genius that gets scouted by an european team IN HIS FUCKING FIRTS HIGH SCHOOL MATCH??? That´s just bizarre, man.
PS: Let alone all the crap people keep saying to him, like "drop your weak team and go to Europe already". (WAY TO ridicularize the other characters of the team, huh? )
I could've sworn it was older than Whistle though, but whatever. Fantasista is cooler btw, Teppei > Shou. But thats just my opinion. But mjeh. I might change my mind after reading the last 15 volumes of Whistle! Though.
