"Growing older is pretty rough and Kenji is finding out just how hard it can be as life starts wearing down on him. On top of trying to make ends meet running a convenience store, he has to care for the niece that his missing sister left in his care. Memories of youth make it easier, until those memories come back to haunt you.
Kenji and his old friends are slowly being drawn into a mysterious conspiracy that could threaten the world. Who is the mysterious "friend", and how does he tie into Kenji's youth? Why are there disappearances and deaths tied into Ochanomizu University? The friend's memories hold the keys to the puzzle, but years between cloud the clues.
The strange occurances and the reach of the "friend" conspiracy grow by the day. It will all culminate on New Year's Eve 2000. Will Kenji and the rest of the group be able to put together the puzzle and save the world? "
Does anyone know where I would be able to download scanlations of volume 18 onwards, as I cant seem to find any on Direct Download...and I suck at irc.

Here you have a very nice web for downloading manga
Ah cool link but the speed is pretty slow for me =/ and the really heavy advertisement is annoying but at least getting the last vols that are missing for me
Yes, it's slow for me too.
A chapter download lasts the time i read a whole chapter so i can go reading and downloading without stopping
And... the fu****g ad is very annoying, I agree
*hijacks thread* ~eni
20th Century Boys ended at Volume 22, which is nearly finished scanlated by Manga-Heaven. You can download their release at #lurk, Evil Empire, Stoptazmo and Mangaheaven. Their latest release is chapter 3 (239) out of the last 13 (249) chapters.
Attention: There's another Volume 22 available which has the label of Jojohot on each page. This release was made based on a chinese Scanlation and a translation, both not allowed to use for scanlation. Please don't distribute this scan, go for Mangaheavens work instead.
21th Century Boys is a Sequel to 20th CB which is supposed to answer the open questions. There are no scanlations yet, but you can find the current RAW and translation in this thread. Much thanks to all who help finding the RAW and to kforblack for translating them.
Please respect that kforblack's translations are not allowed to use for scanlations!

That looks to be a later chapter in volume 22 *feels like he was just spoiled xD* because it seems like the "finale" or something. Thanks for finding it though Hopefully we'll get the entire volume 22 soon.
I really dont know...I mean I only can guess everything from the numbers written here and there. But there is a big 1! on the second page along with a Naoki is back line which indicates that this is the first chapter of volume 22 and we set off with volume 21 a long time ago. This chapter almost fits to the end of vol 21 I just dont remember sado t o be there *needs to read again*
I just wonder...if vol 22 is already release with all the chapters and answers ;__; why are there publications of the chapters one month later o.O?
It seems that there will be more movies, since the site where I found the info said something about "part 1".
And it just makes sence with such a comprehensive storyline.
Yep I read that too somewhere on Mangaheaven. But to be true the storyline is too complexe to fit into a movie (trilogy?). A anime version would be much better...Originally Posted by White Rabbit
I have no idea xD ... Manga Heaven will probably release it in one package, so a whole volume needs some time, I guess.Originally Posted by des
And for the raw, cant dl it atm. Could you upload the first 3 pages or so?
As for the movies ... well, it's a very complex plot, so one movie alone won't be enough to show the whole story. I could imagine that the first one will contain the story (in a nutshell) till the milleniums fight or maybe not even that far.
I made them really small because you're using a modem...Originally Posted by eni

I looked a bit closer on it...
1 Page: We see the usual logo 20th CB
2 Page: There is this return message and again the 20th CB logo, BUT this time with a big one over the 0 from the title (thought that just meant chapter 1)
3/4 Page: We see 21 CB as logo (also with a little arrow+text to the 1) and 1 as chapter number.
So now I am really wondering...I dont expect to see a spin off or whatever but renaming the series with the last volume?
I am lost on that... xD
Thank you so much, des.
Looks really nice. I have to re-read the last chapters of v21, since I don't remember what happenend in the end anymore.
Kenji colorpage *eyesparkles* ... really cool
eh, des ... have you noticed that it's called 21th CB not 20th CB on page 2 and 3?
Don't modify while I'm typing
Hahahahaa...so you noticed that too. In the first moment I was like "wasnt it called 20th? 21th seems more logical at the moment, but wait...§N§G§&" I dont know" xD so yeah but I am still confused :SOriginally Posted by eni
What me even more confuses:Originally Posted by des
This is the chapter that was released in Big Comic Spirits two days ago. But v22 (which we expected to be published in spring '07 but was released in nov '06) is already out. So this is a) the first chp of v23 OR the first chapter of 21th CB - which is what? A Spin Off? Special chap? Second Stage?
I feel so lost atm
