Looks like it’s time for Ten Gai and the executioner to face off in this chapter of Thunderbolt Fantasy. It’s good to see them strut their stuff and battle it out in manga form. I strongly prefer this version over the puppet one as it’s shorter and adds a little more character to Ten Gai as they switched a little scene around. In the puppet version they had Kicho catch the executioner as he fell but in the manga version it’s Ten Gai who catches him and says all of Kicho’s dialog. I guess they did this to make him seem a little more sympathetic.
Now I know it’s been over 4 weeks since the last chapter and you guys are probably eager for more. But there’s one thing that you’ve got to understand, I’ve a full time job and now courses to do outside of working on manga which honestly does hold back back from cracking on and getting this stuff done. To make matters even more dire I’ve night shifts to deal with also which just mess everything up. Anyway thanks for being patient, in the meantime the chapter.
I’m actually quite liking the manga adaption of Gasaraki, it’s much easy to understand and consume since there’s no technobabble or mumbo jumbo dialog. An enjoyable chapter indeed but the only thing lacking is the battle between the Coalition forces and the fakes which was awesome in the anime. It’s not even in the manga, what gives?
I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, ever since I saw the show in fact over a year ago. Anyway since there were no scans online I ordered the manga from Japan, got a whole bunch of it months back. I only got around to working on it now though thankfully I did.
Three months later I finally did another chapter, oh well. I did kinda forgot about this seeing as it wasn’t really on my mind. Not that anyone is actually waiting on this, at least not that I know of seeing as Gasaraki fans have went the way of the dodo. Not that there was many to begin with. I like that this is actually a little different from the anime version, cutting through most of the stupidly mysterious dialog and getting to the point. I like it.
Looks like Tan Hi is in for a world of hurt at the Seven Sins Tower. From physical to mental torture by the hands of Cho Mei, it looks like it proved too much for our little lady. So you’ll see a dream sequence followed by the harsh reality. Grisly stuff.
I really couldn’t help myself with that last page. Anyhow this chapter picks up right after the last one with the gang moving towards the Seven Sins Tower. Except Tan Hi has been captured and brought into the dungeon from Silence of the lambs. I don’t think it’ll go well for her. Not that Sho has it any better since he’s got Betsu Ten Gai to deal with.
