Does anyone read the English novel, Darren Shan? Any big fans out there? Vampires? Spiders?

Well, if you love Darren Shan and manga, this is for you. Even if you never heard of Darren Shan before, it is still for you! Aku-Tenshi has released the very first chapter of Darren Shan, which is being serialized in Shounen Sunday! This manga is based off of an English novel series known as "The Saga of Darren Shan" by, yours truely, Darren Shan! So if you haven't read the novels yet, go read them now!

This novel has been translated into Japanese, and then made into a Japanese manga. Now we're translating it back into English, so there will be some translation lost in between, but Tsubasa (Aku-Tenshi leader) is trying her best to to keep this as true to the original English novel as possible. The manga doesn't follow the novel exactly, so please excuse us if there are variations and mistakes. We're just petty fan trying to share this with fellow vampire lovers. Hope you'll enjoy this ^^b

Please come to #aku-tenshi @ irc.irchighway.net to grab this 72 pages (!!!) of breath-taking chapter! or http://www.bellerosecon.com/imagegallery/main.php?g2_itemId=19

Re: Darren Shan, Anyone?

well, I saw it, and I think its a sorry excuse to get more money, the frist 4 books (maybe 7) were good, but then it got really random with stuff just thrown in, I barely read it for enjoyment after a while, so sure, read it if you want...

Re: Darren Shan, Anyone?

I've read the first seven books in the series (I started reading them a lot because my English II teacher had them). I'm reading the manga right now and so far it's following it (although it was one of the little people who gave out the flyer, no Mr. Tall).

Re: Darren Shan, Anyone?

I read the first chapter a while ago... It seemed pretty interesting. I haven't read the books, and don't really plan to, but this seems like a pretty interesting manga. I'd like to see where this goes... Though I did a bit of research on the series on Wiki (the home of spoilers) and thought it sounded okay... Though I thought Darren was gonna channel Spiderman or something the first time I read it...

the book series wasnt random, everything was planned out beforehand, especially the ending. i cant wait to see how the manga goes out, i hope it becomes popular (more Manga Editors Editing it =D), and i hope they dont change it too much!

as you can tell, im a total cirque du freak freak:p


jw, where can we get the raws and translations?

Re: Darren Shan, Anyone?

Good first chapter :) i didn't read the books so i will have to check those out sometime soon maybe...

I hope not >_> i mean popularity is one thing but how about insted of 50 groups doing a manga they help out A-T >_> *sorry i'll leave that alone >_>*

jw, where can we get the raws and translations?
A-T buys the books and Scans them and then they translate them :) hope that helps >_>

Keep up the good work and can't wait until C2 :)

Re: Darren Shan, Anyone?

Does anyone have any raws for this? I heard they were on conan-magic, but either I can't find them, or they were taken down. Anyone know where to get them or willing to scan them? I'm becoming obsessed. :D

DS has been licensed by YenPress,

And the raws are still at MBG's site (Conan-magic) they were just moved to the live journal because of leechers.

It's a shame, everyone wanting the raws but no scans have surfaced.

Re: Darren Shan, Anyone?

Are you a member of the LJ community? if so you should see them. Ask MBG in the Cbox over at her site (conan-magic.com)

Wow, I've been looking for scans of these. I've read all the books and was thrilled to find that there was a manga, but sad there were no scans. Looking forward to more.

i loved the entire cirque du freak series!!!i read all 12 books within a couple of months and i thought it was amazing!only thing is i wished there was a better ending to the series and maybe the series went on a little bit longer. the series was supposed to be 18 books but the author felt the story was going in the wrong direction so changed it up a bit. oh well still a great series and im glad there's a manga to go along with it.
