Seems cool, even if I didn't understand anything but chaos, fighr and a demon.
Waiting for a translation.
I was working on the original one-shot, holy crap I can't believe this got a series. I'm about half way done the translation and 100% done the editing. The original one shot is called Akuma Bengoshi Kukabara.

It seems a bit more like Let's Bible than Shin Angyo Onshi, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Since the characters from the oneshot and this first chapter are different I'm guessing that the first chapter already finished with this story arc and it's going to move on to him dealing with someone else (and we won't see guy with baseball bat ever again). Wonder what the main story line will deal with instead of just introducing "this week's contract".
it looks like they made Bichura wear pants lol
Bible is a verb?
...That made me think of the bible used as a beyblade.
Oh god. MOST.AWESOME. BLASPHEMY. EVER.
Shin Angyo Onshi is about a guy fighting a demon/demi-god who has various powers that all basically amounts to shaping reality/people's perception of reality. It's one of the best manga/manwha I've read, so I'm expecting good things from this if we get a translator for it and it doesn't get canceled.
Well the art of this one is definitely different to the art they used in shin angyo onshi. It's softer than the heavy one in shin angyo onshi. Okay there'll always be those main consistent elements of art but it's obvious they adapted their art for the magazine and audiance. I can't say anything about the manga itself but since the first chapter is very similar to the one shot, I have to say I'll keep an eye on this one. Let's bible was imo a cooler concept. Shin angyo onshi was awesome
The art in Shin Angyo Onshi itself changed over time. It's especially recognizable in the earlier chapters, in the preview chapter for example, Munsu looked really different from how he did later on, not the character design, just the way the face was drawn. I think the art is very similar to the later volumes, just that it's "softer" in that it's shonen instead of seinin, so we don't get all the giant demonic monstrosities and corpses exploding into fountains of blood and things in that vein.
You can't go wrong with this artist no matter what you like. SAO was top-notch quality (story/art). Hope this one will be as good or at least as fun.
wow, that's so cool. I really liked what they did in the oneshot (there's a scanlation of it at mangafox, but the group doesn't want to come here <.<' - good to read someones working on it! thx!).
this is definitely looking like it could be a solid favourite in sunday, but only time will tell
http://mangahelpers.com/s/gantzteami.../details/20650 there finished it.
I'm thinking about doing this series to the end but i will need a translator to be able to do this. so yeh if anyone is interested do drop me a pm.
Wow, this is the first time I've seen a Korean draw like this.
I never knew Koreans can get serialized.
I'm really interested, are there any more Koreans that got serialized?
Wow, this inspired a Korean teenager to draw more! :3
