    looking at baka, ch57 is the last scanned chapter (came out last July), not sure about your first question. It might be that according to the weird numbering 25b is actually chapter 52? I mean looking at X, 25b and 53 are listed in the same volume.

    I made a thread asking this but perhaps I should've posted the question here so here it is: The colored version of the dragonball and dragonball z manga are out. Current DBZ is only at the Saiyan Arc but DB has the whole series in color. Are there any raw sites or manga sites that will upload them or have so already?

    Breaker: New Waves....I don't care about baldy, moody dude's backstory. He had the gall to say Shi-Woon Yi should just shut up and die because it's *his* fault all this violence is happening? The fuck? No it's because your group is a bunch of douches. What? No, I don't care.

    It's like in Veritas when one of the bad guys tried justifying all the sadistic crap he'd pulled before. "You don't know the pressures we're under! I have a whole family to support and bitch face is using the money to treat her ailing father!" Oh spare me. How many dramatic shots of you smiling in creepy satisfaction after killing/nearly killing someone were there?

    Anyone would know of a manga "suzuka Hachitai 2050"
    the artwork is pretty amazing and feel like reading a racing cyberpunk bike manga.

    It was published in Jump in 1994.
    Does anyone know at least how I could get to find the information myself as such as "you could contact the publishin house which is..."

    ????

    Thanks all;33

    Just that the author of those X is the one that has made Evangelion.
    Are you sure it was actually published?
    Maybe you can retreat to X from the same mangaka :p

    Thanks for the effort buddy.
    This one is a hard one.

    Haven't been able to find more about it. I'm beginning to wonder if it never got a release out of japan. If we think about the year it was published, I fear it was never scanlated from anyone since it was maybe "just a single" short story. Because there is really nothing out there about it. Guess Evangelion was so big it shadowed pretty much every other work from Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. It is also probable that the story sucked bad, and that would be why we haven't got a single way to find it.

    once sure thing, we would get a clear answer if we could ask either jump or Yoshiyuki Sadamoto about it. The answer is there and exists, it's just unreachable somehow.

    Maybe once all the Evangelion movies will be done, he might look at his older projects and... and..... nevermind

    Looking for the name of a webcomic.

    The story starts with a dragon picking his nose and flicking a magical sword into a village. The chief claims whoever pulls the sword is the chosen hero and must defeat the evil dark dragon, and of course he is the one who pulls the sword and is forced to go on a quest. He meets an elf girl along the way, and it turns out he knew her in his youth and it was his lover , but he went with a human girl instead. Over the course of the webcomic he starts aging backwards becoming younger, and growing hair. The holder of the dark sword sends his own assassin to kill the knight, which turns out to be the sister of the elf girl, someone who also loved the man in his youth.

    Its fantasy, but a lot of comedy is thrown in.

    I'm looking for a manga. I've read it before and wanted to read it again but completely forgot its name.


    It's about a guy who's about to start law school or some shit. Then he gets lost on his first day and ends up finding another guy who is also lost and is also going to law school. They hit it off right away.

    When they finally find the school, this limo pulls up and a super hot chick gets out. She has a bouquet of roses and then smacks them both with it. Turns out she is the 2nd guy's fiancee.

    That's how it starts.

    Looking for the name of another title.

    Guy somehow gets killed, but werid scientist in the shape of a really cute girl somehow brings him back to life in a body she made for several million yen. Only difference is that he now has red eyes and lighter hair, and of course super strength speed, and other powers. She wants him to work as her assistant, and they nomrally have to deal with super natural creatures, they have a special name for it in manga. I know in one of the stories there was a tadpole frog monster thing.

    Here's another manga I read, but of which I completely forgot the name.


    It's about these 2 guys that want this girl. So one of them ends up kidnapping her. Then shows the other one. They keep her there for a few days, under the order of someone higher than them.

    Then the one that didn't kidnap her, decides to set her free. And when she gets away she tells him "If you think for even a second, that you saved my life...I will kill you"

    Then she tells him to take responsibility and become her body guard, because apparently the higher up dude, wants her back. So he has to walk her home and keep her company on the phone when she's bored and shit.

    If anyone knows...

    Ok a new one that I completely forgot the name of and most of the details for as well: About an emo kid in school who has some kind of special power to do special things with his dream. Keeps meeting and holding conversations with a man in his dreams who warns him about something dangerous. He has these three black masses swirling around him most of the time, that he names. I read up to the point where he meets a group of performing gypsies. Seems like it was quite music orientated. Had a website made for it too, that I forgot to favourite.

    Could someone post the cronological order of the Mangas(Novels?) for me?

    With links to Kissmanga if possible.

    Where can I find good quality dragon ball post chapter 307?

    For some reason on almost all online manga sites( or atleast the the popular ones), Dragon ball manga's quality takes a nose dive after chapter 307. Bad scans, bad dialogue boxes, untranslated text, random order of manga chapters etc. I am wondering if there is a site where I can find good Dragon ball chapter post chapter 307, which are consistent to the quality of previous manga chapters. Also the whole DMCA notice on google seems to removing some links which might contain good scans.
    Thanks in advance.

    I usually read Mangas on Kissmanga, since they provide the best quality most of the time.

    X

    I don't know whether the quality here is better than where you used to read them, but I can only recommend this site.

    Also because of the chapters being displayed on 1 page.

    It's awesome and much easier to read that way.

    It does not seem to have been translated beyond that yet (except for 65 recently).

    I also recommend you Kissmanga.

    There is a manga i forgot the name.

    Its about a little girl that opens something like a particular detective "agency" and spends the day finding missing things and solving problems. I remember that in the first chapter she is looking for an old lady's cat that went missing. i also remember the story is set in europe. Maybe in the 18th or 19th century, but i'm not sure.

    I'd be happy to rep+ anyone who knows the name X

    ^ This sounds awfully similar to Gosick Red's (the sequel to Gosick) premise, but that doesn't have a manga unfortunately and neither is it published in the first place. :(
    And it certainly doesn't sound like the original Gosick. Or may be I'm remembering it wrong.

    Try this X
    Tried to look for others, but couldn't find.

    Or may be Heaven's Memo Pad, though I'm not sure if it has a manga.

    Good thing you reminded me. Btw, who's that in your set, looks awfully similar to some Alabaster character. Definitely Tezuka either way.
