It's seriously high time for some female characters that don't turn into sex toys the second one of the traitorous heroes waggles an evil eyebrow at them. I'm really hoping there are some among the lances with some self esteem.

Its been a while since this place got a bump but current chapter of Ubel Blatt scans are upto 114.
This has been a really nasty and weird arc so far.
Glenn rises from the dead as Griffith 2.0(presumably res'd by the sheer accumulation of vanerial diseases in his system), exploitation sex every 15 seconds, supporting cast MIA, and a plot that just kinda jumps around. I'm a huge Ubel Blatt fan but I'd like to see this straightened out before too long.
And it's seriously, SERIOUSLY, time to stop doing the harem of sex slaves thing. It's gross, it's pointless, it's annoying, and it needs to stop. More stabbing with swords and less with....other things.

xD - I thought that I must have skipped or forgotten some chapters when Glenn resurfaced again.
Sure - more stabbings and plot advancement would be nice.
This forum seems kind of dead . Any how I came across this series because of mangastream.com Is this worth a read, why isn't any one disscussing anything ?
As for why the activity fell off. I can only answer for myself but there was a long haitus and after it came back a little rougher around the edges. For a while though it was focusing away from the protagonist, spread the various characters all over the place, and shifting focus so often that I couldn't really get into any of the stories they chapters were trying to tell. It's like the author was rushing the story along instead of telling it.
It seems like it's getting back on track now. It's still not quite where it was creatively before the hiatus but it's getting there.
I wonder if the latest chapters flow better if you read them consecutively instead of reading... one... at... a... time... Usually it works better that way, but I find I am lost reading the last few chapters. I think i'll batch read them some day, just to get back into it. It used to be really good.
The problem is that a lot of things are going on in a lot of places and instead of focusing on one of them the author has been doing a little of each. As a result each little story arc reads about the same way a book with pages missing does. Whether you read the chapters one at a time or all at once, those parts of the story just aren't there. It's like he tried to do the game of thrones epic fantasy thing but just can't put out the volume of pages he needs to pull it off.
Getting all the characters in one place is a good start toward returning to a story that's focused on a single place in the Ubel Blatt world, which is what the story was for the first 100ish chapters, and I think that really is what this series needs to return to being.
