Here you go. #53 (And I included chapters #54 and #55, 'cause I thought you could use them, too.)
And I'm sorry, that I did not get in touch with you and Kenji, for such a long time, since the 20th-21st time-line thingie.
Some things happened over the last, past months, so I didn't had really the motivation and time for such an extensive piece of work.
I will send an PN to both of you, or will write an explaining message in the 21st-thread, the next coming days. I'm sorry, it took me so long.
For now, have fun with Pluto. The masterpiece is coming to it's end. Seems like #56 will be the last chapter, if I'm not mistaken.
thanks man for posting.
Now we have to wait for a translation.
But wow, Pluto ending in a few chapters ??
I didn't expect this, I thought urasawa would expand the plot of destroying the robots and would create a length like Monster.
Already done?? I thought he liked to create super long series!
I guess his partner his tired.
So, no news yet, if next one will be the last chapter. I thought, the comment on the last page said #56 will be the last one, but I was mistaken. It only says "What will happen next?!"-something like that, and that #56 will feature colour-pages and will be released on 19th of July.
@ dabura & TheGenius:
PLUTO was laid-out, at first, as a 6-volumes-miniseries. Well, now we are at the end of Volume 7, already (if 6 and 7 feature 8-chapters alike, how the previous ones had), so eitherway, next chapter will be the last chapter or the one before the last (which means vol. 7 will be an extended tank with 9 or 10 chapters)
OR, #56 will be the start of volume 8.
Which speaks for the latter, is that every Pluto Volume startet off with a colour-pages chapter, so, there's still a chance, we get a Volume 8.
The reason, I think 7 will be the last one is:
As said before: the manga was laid-out as a 6-Volume-manga, which means, we are already way over it. And well, the manga seemed to me, like it's nearing its end, already from #43 on.
So, what's still, to happen in Volume 8? Is there enough story left, to fill up an extra volume? Or will we get just an extended volume 7?
As much as I LOVE this frickin' series, I would be happier, if it comes to an end, soon. This would mean, we had to wait again, for at least 8 months, to POSSIBLY, let it come to an end.
So, now, you know, what I know.
Have fun, speculating.
Ganner_Rhysode,Thank you for sharing.
While I love Monster and 20th, I read a bit of Pluto and didn't really like it much but didn't hate it.. I'm considering reading a bit more into it to see if I'll start liking it though.
so anyone have any updates as far as pluto is concerned? is it at its end? ive read up to chap 54 and it does seem to be ending but yea, any news?
Has chapter 56 come out, as promised in chapter 55? If so I'd like to read it, heheh. It does look like it will end soon, but I don't think it can happen in just one chapter, so I'd say another volume...
Is Pluto licensed at the States? Because in Spain it really was...
I am working on translating 56-60 right now, so hopefully someone will scanlate them.
Ch. 56 scan just got released. It's great to be able to keep reading this good story.
By the way, am I the only one surprised to see AGAIN all this stuff about an anti-proton bomb destroying the Earth? First in Century Boys, now in Pluto...
I want to ask - do we know who was that guy jumping from skyskaper to skyskaper in end of chapter 2? They said it is human but even now I really don't know his identity... (and almost all bad guys are robots

thanks to all who are doing this series i just love it , and now is starting billy bat deadbeat scans has released 2 chapters =)
this is a great manga and could easily top 20th century and monster
My only problem is 20th century had friend and monster had johan, this one has an assortment of villains almost and the main character went off and died so i'm getting confused because i dont know how well this series can go with just atom
Anybody going to see astro boy when it comes out i know i am
Hi, I love this manga and I think Naoki Urasawa is THE number one thriller author, I haven't read 20th century boys yet but Monster was awesome. I don't know if it's his signature or what but all the characters have the same nose ! That's my only complaint unless it's his sig
