Welcome to the Blue Dragon - RalΩGrado Discussion Thread!

We closed the Blue Dragon subforum because the Manga was finished and the discussions weren't that much active. All threads were merged into this one, no posts were deleted. I let it stay as a sticky for a while, no nobody needs to search the old forum ^_^

Looks like this is going to be Obata's new Jump manga. The pages are interesting, to say the least.

Some pages:



zindryr's Translation:

I numbered the pages in the actual order. The pages in the first post aren't ordered correctly. 1 2 3 5 6 4 7 8

Page 01

Boobies.

Page 02
*grope*

Wha-... what!?

Wa-wait. He doesn't know any better, he doesn't mean any harm.

Leave this to me.

What's this?

*grope*

Br-... breasts.

I never did get a chance to teach you about this...

*grope*

Page 03
Mio, you feel so soft and nice.

You smell nice, too.

What's down here?

St-... stop, you fool!

Is this not allowed? It feels really good though.

Ral, you aren't wrong. Boys like girls, you're right there.

That's right, you've never been held by your mother or touched another human. So if you don't mind doing so to me...

But you shouldn't do this in front of other people.

Why?

Page 04
Because being naked and embracing one another in front of people is embarrassing.

I've been naked this whole time, should I be embarrassed?

Hehe! Ye-yes, well, if you defeat the Shadow, then we will have some excellent clothes made for you.

Look, everyone else is wearing clothes.

So, you're enduring embarrassment just for me, Mio?

Yes, but it is my fault for never teaching you about girls.

Grudo, can I take care of the Shadow outside later?

Indeed, so long as you don't die then I don't care about the Shadow outside or any of these people here.

No, if I don't take care of the Shadow outside right away, I'll never be a big shot.

Is that right? Well, leave it to me.

Well then, Mio.

Page 05
I should say, Mistress Mio, teach me all about girls.

I, I can't do that here.

Then where?

Er... like, on a bed...

Uh...

Oh! That's where humans sleep! Ok, let's go there.

Wa-... wait a second, Ral.

If you go out and protect us from the oncoming Shadow...

But I want to learn about girls from you Mio.

Then how about this?

Page 06
If I can destroy the shadow, then you'll teach me all about girls.

Alright.

If you do that then I'll teach you. It's a deal.

Whatever a deal is. Anyway, promise.

Sure. I promise, Ral.

Alright, Mistress Mio.

Page 07
Ral! That was awesome!

Alright, you promised, teach me everything about girls.

Oh.

Fine. Follow me, Ral.

Yes, Mistress Mio!

Mio's sacrificing herself for all of us.

I'm not so sure.

I kind of envy her.

Me too.

So a savior is born...

Page 08
Hurry, hurry!

Wait just a moment.

I'll be right there.

I think it's great that I got out of the depths of that prison alive.

Mistress Mio, it's...

It's really beautiful out here.

Re: Blue Dragon Previews

Haaaaaa! The pages are out of order... Sex on the first chapter?! WTF?!?! "So, as you promised, teach me about women", "Okay, if I promised, I will", and that picture to the right... Oo (Not to talk about the one on the left)

Oops, it's in order, only the part where he beats the shadow was taken out Oo and in the last page (the one to the left) she is after (probably) "teaching" him about women, she said you can "teach" about women in "beds" and so, in pages before that...

That's kinda... Kinky, isn't it? Even Hentaish for SJ, where do you see people having sex in SJ? Huh? Oo

Well, maybe it's not sex, as Ral doesn't know a thing, as Mio-sensei said, they need him to take on the shadows, so she buys him with this thing, touching her naked, anyways... Oo Not sure what really happened because the pages are not here Oo L was less clueless than Ral.

Re: Blue Dragon Previews

Ugh, it's apparently Grudo, even though the Japanese is Gurado. Updated it in my translation.

Re: Blue Dragon Previews

zindryr doing jump manga other than Bastard? (although bastards run in jump ended ages ago...i think) GASP. Lol, in seriousness, there is nothing special about this preview so i await the full chapter before i am impressed. (I was never into fanservice, if i wanted something like that, i would watch porn)

Re: Blue Dragon Previews

This reminded me of Bastard from the few preview pictures. Hence instant attention grabbed. I'm hoping the full first chapter will be awesome.

Re: Blue Dragon Previews

I dont know. I mean manga based off of games tend to suck, alot. I will wait until at least a few volumes are out before making any opinion one way or the other on this series.
