Looks like fate has finally brought us to the end of the first volume of Gasaraki. In this chapter Yushiro finally gets to meet Symbol’s invitator, but Symbol is aware of this and seeks to capture him alive for their own needs.
With the hostile TA’s bearing down up on Yushiro and the others, it’s up to Yushiro to save day once again. Also this version is significantly streamlined from the anime version, there’s an entire episode which didn’t really matter in the grand scale of things just not in the manga version. The same goes for alot of the behind the scenes stuff in the anime, though it is meant to be a companion piece to the anime.
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.
