I decided to give this one a good head start, started reading yeaterday, and at the latest chapter already. Just couldn't wait longer.
It's interesting this far. Bit confusing, mysterious and intriguing. Kinda annoying that I have totally no idea whats actually going on, but on the other hand that keeps me reading on ^^ As always, Urasawa nows what he is doing.
I'm curious to find if there will be an antiproton bomb in Billy Bat.
Urasawa seems to love antiproton bomb; maybe there'll be one in Billy Bat too (maybe on the moon, under the bat symbol discovered in chapter 9 è_é).
Great to see Billy Bat getting scanlated. I love Urasawa's work and this series is no exception judging from what I've read so far. Definitely my favourite mangaka EVER. Still hard to give any in-depth analysis as the story is so young. All I can say is that like every other Urasawa series, this one is also keeping me at the edge of my seat. He's just an amazing storyteller.
And as for chapter 13:
Is he really him?!
When I saw the scan I immediately thought about him, but wasn't sure it was him.
So confusing. Out of nowhere a full chapter about Judas Iskariot. Mysterious, I guess he is going to have lot of signifigance on the plot.
I'm really confused with this past chapter but that's why I'm loving this manga. And what's up with that small kid drawing the bat and having the same name??? Do you think he is an ancestor of Yamagata?
Some things I have noticed but these could be just stupid.
Some of the bats have had 7 spikes on the lower wings but others have had 8 or 9. The one on the moon and the one that tiny Judas drew had 7. The one in the under pass and the old man manaka's signature on the paper and the one on the ground with chalk had 8. The ancient text had 9 and I think Billy Bat has 9 as well.
I think that the black bats are good and white are evil.

I don't think the spikes really matter, just different interpretations and drawing abilities. I think the one on the stone pillar is the white one, and the one in the ancient text is the black one. Kevin saw the white one first, and he seems good. Though that's very interesting like you said, if the white one was actually bad. And maybe Kevin will have to end up being the bad guy, or fight against it somehow.
Might as well talk some spoilers too about 15 and 16.
They are both Judas Iskariot is what I got from it. He was talking to himself as a kid and having flashbacks about his childhood.
