welcome to the official discussion thread of the manga GAROUDEN, the non stop martial arts sensation created by Yomemakura Baku and Itagaki keisuke.
feel free to add comments and questions regarding the status of the manga series, this manga has two videogames
-Garouden Breakblow (covering only manga Volumes 1-15)
-GAROUDEN Fist or twist (covering the events of the original novel completely)
A word of caution to our readers, playing through the second game on story mode makes you play automatically with the winner of such fight, spoiling you on who wins said fight, there are 68 main bouts in the whole Garouden world, the manga hasn't even covered half of it.
Need i say more?!
For all those who who have Fist or Twist, I'm curious as to what characters you guys like to play as and why. I mainly use Fujimaki and Nagata, but Tanba is fun too. I also wish I had someone to play this game with, I get bored fighting the computer all the time and my fiance doesn't get how to play at all.
i'm liking this series a lot, can't wait for the Shozan vs Tatsumi fight
but Tanba seems to be absent a lot, isn't he supposed to be the protagonist lol??
well, after he fought on the fighting festival he took a seat on the Shozan
"all arts competition" where is bigger than the tatsumi's fighting festival, in a funny note, this tournament is still not over as we speak, almost 3 years and 8 volulmes later, Tanba is still on his seat enjoying the same tournament, Garouden is expected to be almost 50 to 65 volumes, rumor has that he will finish this series after Baki is over, last volume was 23.
but a lot is happening on the Garouden world.
in the videogame, I believe fist or twist was tweaked so the characters are not that poweful, and took some of the specials out of a few characters, the Ko-ou tiger king special was given to Izumi, tanba, Fujiwara (even though he has never used it on the series yet, since this game didnt cover up further than volume 19) Jyuzo has the offensive version of the Ko-ou and is harder than the defensive version since he has to crouch and jump at the same time.
Jyuzo technique (the Takemiya ryuu) is a mix between Jiu jitsu, Aikido and shotokan karate. I Like the first game much better, but again, the second has all the 68 battles of the novels and on story mode it will spoil you the whole story with fight results and other surprises, so I will have to reccomend avoid the story mode on Fist or twist.
Any garouden news?
Will check this manga out, description seems interesting.
Is it as good as Tenjou Tenge?
news on garouden: Vol 23 is coming out the 27th of november, The shozan tournament has JUST ended...I wont say more than that
grrrr, can't wait for more Garouden >_<
Fist or Twist sounds like the title of a German porno movie. Besides that the Manga kicks ass. After all the creator of Hanma Baki is on board so it has no choice but to whoop butt.
I wonder who is stronger shozan or tatsumi?
i may have missed something but what happened to all the raws that used to be on here for garouden???
