Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

Great Anax, I have a feeling you might enjoy Basilisk.

Well, here's my chart ( I did all the faces in a rush, but it did the trick in helping me remember who's who =P )

For now I just dropped by to tell you I have a high quality (tested) replica of High Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu's sword, a collector's item with a gold-filled tsuba :D Still, I envy the person who knows how to use the sword even if the don't own one :p
Wow...I envy you a bit. I think those swords are really beautiful, even as decoration. Me and my friends bought a katana as a birthday present for one of my friends once. These things are just gorgeous.
And fighting with these swords is beautiful, too. :tem

@GK: great chart! Very handy and clearly arranged.

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

I also have a katana, but all I ever used it for was decoration ^^

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

@GK --> This chart is great GK, you'd be great at drawing chibi characters because you seem to be able to grasp the key points of each character and overemphasize them, while making such a cute, tiny drawing! That's great!

@Miso --> Well, the word "tested" in the parenthesis actually meant I-'ve-done-the-stupidest-things-that-sword-anything-a-true-samurai-would-never-and-under-no-circuimstances-do-and-after-all-that-the-sword-is-still-alive-and-slicing. More or less.
Apart from that I also "train" in a way every day, making small steps at re-inventing the basics of the basics of the basics without a teacher. =Þ

On Topic: I have an exam to take tomorrow and I'm not going to sleep (woke up at 19:30) so, at some point during the night I'll download the 5 volumes and read them! Then I'll come back here and comment away :D

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

The link doesn't work! I know nothing about (m)IRC!! I want to download the manga (with the help of a friend here) and not just read them (along with a friend). Plz help soon? Pretty please with sugar on top? :D

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

Ugh, I hate it when websites go suddenly down like that.

You can also download them at stoptazmo.com Anax. Actually it's just as well that you do because they have every chapter unlike the links I gave earlier. I'll edit my first post.

Edit: Ah, it was already in the post.

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

Thank goodness this net cafe has two lines (still, at 1Mbps which is the max for a single line in Greece when in France it's like 20 </rant> ) and I downloaded (along with said friend) all the episodes in no time. Still, due to WoW, MH and all the other activities I'm involved in along with friends (hereafter mentioned as "stuff") I didn't have the time and the required eye-stamina.

So, far I've read the first 3 chapters and they look good! :thumbs
My only dissapointment is how EVERYONE looks so twisted, demented, paranoid, schizofrenic and downright EVIL!

My first idea of "Anax the Cat nin" was of a guy with Kakashi colored hair (or even some tones lighter) with 3 black stripes (or many small black spots), though most importantly, Yashamaru length hair, AFTER he cut it... Still, a mix of that length hair with Hatori Hanzo's bangs, or Sasuke's bangs could be good... I just need to OVEREMPHASIZE the cathood of this character...
We'll talk more about "Anax the Cat nin" as opportunities appear :thumbs :D

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

One of the most appealing things about Basilisk to most people is that there is no clear cut good or bad for all these characters - though I must admit the old-looking characters were kind of WAY too evil-looking!

But ah well they don't last long as you know ;)

Yeah, I'll keep your description in mind ;)

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

I actually like how the characters are drawn. Some of them are not pretty but everyone is unique.

Considering the drawing style in general it is not bad in regards of skill IMO. Characters as well as backgrounds look well-composed and detailed to me. Plus Genesis' Edited Mangas are top-notch so you get your fulles of the original artwork.

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

Yes, I'm in awe of how much work it must have taken for both the original artists AND the Manga Editors for this manga! High quality work all in all.

Edited by GK - the page wasn't showing up in the spoiler tags because I think it was too big, so I just removed the img tags.

Good catch caesars_sa - didn't even realize there was a missing page.

I'll ask NJT to translate it.

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

This is not a series which was aimed at a long time I think. The story has got a straight line so it finishes fast in comparison to other popular series which seem to be ongoing as long as they're popular enough.
But that was also something I liked about Basilisk. Somehow it's really simple: a war ongoing between the two ninja clans with a dramatic showdown. Period.
It's nice to read and you don't get bored.

Agreed with Miso, it was fast and furious which I liked.

Re: Basilisk Discussion Thread

just finished the manga- all five volumes. Reading binge- now i see why it is quite similar to the anime- such freaking powers.

Looking at it it looks like iga was the only one that had one member killed by its own tribesman- oboro killing tenzen.


(Spoiler tagged for obvious reasons ;) - GK)
