Hey people,
Does ne one know from where I can get direct downloads of FLAME OF RECCA Manga ( Not bittorrent or ne other p2p ).

This question has already been answered but I thought we shouldn't limit this thread to this only.
Although knowing where to get a manga is quite useful I think this series has discussion potential, too.
So instead of locking it we should talk about anything interesting about Flame of Recca.
Just go ahead! ;)

Re: FLAME OF RECCA

I'm also starting to read Flame of Recca, thanks to Dragonzair ^^

I'm glad to have an alternative place to download the volumes instead of irc, thanks Miso!

Check this out!!

Flame of Recca is about a high schooler named Recca Hanabishi, who aspires to be a ninja and is obsessed with anything ninja-related. After meeting a girl named Yanagi Sakoshita, whom he acknowledged to be his princess (姫 hime), and a mysterious woman named Kage Hoshi (陽炎Kagerō) a.k.a. (影子), who apparently attacked him for no reason at all, he finds that he not only comes from a long-dead ninja clan of 400-years past, he also can control his personal Flame. Recca and his friends (Domon Ishijima, Fuko Kirisawa, Tokiya Mikagami, Kaoru Koganei) must grow stronger in order to protect Yanagi from being taken by Kurei (紅麗) and his adopted father, the evil Kouran Mori, who wants eternal life, and believes that Yanagi's mysterious healing power is the key to it.

I have not yet read the manga but I have seen the anime which totally great although they blotched it up at the end with a crappy ending. I heard that the manga is better.

Re: FLAME OF RECCA

Didn't know there was a Flame of Recca topic here :P

Well FoR rocks. I decided to start reading it cause I liked MÄR, which is also by Nobuyuki Anzai. The first 4 volumes are pretty average and the artwork isn't very good either, but if you get past that it's all good man. The Urabutou-satsujin arc kicks off and everything shifts into gear. Anzai's art improves immensly, and it is imo just one of the best tournament arcs in a classis shounen ever.
I'd also recommend this to the guys, since there are a lot of cute girls in it (especially my dear Fuuko -> see avatar :D) and the mangaka isn't shy with the fanservice.

So, great action, funny characters, kickass moves, cute girls... Do I need to go on?

Ditto with sagnik. I plan to pick up the manga sometime in the near future but I'll have to look for an alternative place to download.

as you may have guessed from watching all the episodes, the anime is less than half of the full story of FoR. the ending of the anime is VERY different from what happened in the manga at that point, and even before the ending there are many other differences. the bottom line is, if you liked the anime, you'll like the manga even more.

btw all the volumes are on the #lurk irc channel. or you can wait for mangatraders to go back online.

Re: FLAME OF RECCA

i did enjoy the anime, even though i watched it some ago, it was good. and i know the manga will be better, mangas are generally much better. two major examples of this is shaman king and ichigo100%, both great animes but no way near the manga. back FoR, thanx letting me know of lurk, i will give it a go sometime soon i guess, but i still want to buy the mangas also.

did you like the manga HK?

Re: FLAME OF RECCA

I agree the Manga is way better than the anime, the anime changed to much with the flame dragons (don't want to say what as it might spoil). But yeah the Manga kicks ass and everyone should read it.
