Just got book 27 and finished it (even tho I only understand minimal Japanese). Yeah first of all Abayama is pretty damned badass, secondly, yeah Isaku needs to come back to take out that big guy, but I doubt the likeliness. Ittoryu is in some deep shit now.
well ittoryu is end to fall isn't it? maki is definitely gonna die fighting IMO because dying from sickness in bed is not the way to go for a warrior. Only person i see coming out of this alive is probably Magatsu because he is out of the danger zone for now...
Magatsu, Anotsu, Rin & Manji will be alive at the end.
And I got even the feeling that Manji will get killed by Anotsu..
or something like that.. at least that Manji get killed
O_O actually I really hope that Magatsu, Anotsu and Rin will be living together!!
Somehow I think, that Rin will forgive Anotsu at the end.
The latest Afternoon cover April 2011 issue, thought I'd share it...
*_* how beautiful
anyway does someone know if our hero Samura Hiroaki is okay?
makie too hot to die by disease but then do we want to see her get cut up to pieces?
Hey guys, just got the latest Afternoon May 2011 Issue, featuring Blade of the Immortal Chapter 200, below contains spoiler from 199 and then (poor quality) images from 200:
ok so basically makie went to get the bad guys then decided to lay down to be executed? I am not really sure who the person in the background is! I guess the "best guyess" is Anotsu BUT the weapon that person is holding is not really anotsu weapon no? Also if it is really anotsu why the secrecy?
i saw the new takubon and noticed a female character at the last page - do you know who she is or if she's from new manga?

Fast question, I did watch the anime which in my point of view so boring but the manga looks more entertaining so from where do I start 2 read where the anime stop and the manga continue?
@ shouryuujo: the weapon the guy is holding should be enough hint to who it is; Makie has tuberculosis and managed to kill all of the government officers who tried to subdue her, when she finally got in front of Habaki she collapsed.
That girl from the end of tankabon 27 is just an extra illustration I think, has nothing to do with the story or future projects, as far as I'm concerned.
@killer7: I started reading this manga like 10-12 years ago, I suggest you begin from book one of the manga to really get the feel and style of this manga, I was excited when they made the anime but after watching a few episodes, the anime really cannot do the manga justice.
iamjacky - who is that guy??? its not manji is it? he doesnt have that kinda of weapon does he? ok so makie killed a bunch of grunts... i was hoping she take out couple of elite guards though...
Anyway did you bought that magazine online?
@ shouryuujo: the only person who holds that weapon at the end can only be Manji!
@ Nagashiwa: yeah I bought the newest afternoon online; sometimes through Kinokuniya.
Can anyone please translate vol.26 into English? I have been able to find scans in English all the way up to vol.25, but nothing after that.
Vol.25 is available in Japanese here: http://pic3.sfacg.com/AllComic/171/026j/?p=1
I see that http://anotsuu.livejournal.com/ is doing some translating, but they are doing stuff that has already been translated.
