I'm kinda sad that we're caught up now.... I'm gonna have to find something else to gross out people inbetween monthly chapters.
I'm sure a lot of translators wouldn't have touched this series while you had the "guts" to do it. Anyway, I'll continue to read any new releases of this series and good luck finding a new series to gross out people with.

I loved chapter 2 . I just started reading the manga today and it's really good. Totally different from Tokyo Akazukin, which i just finished reading, and which was excellent as well.

This is a pretty interesting series. Once i started reading it, i couldn't stop. But i prefer to have more happy ends though. Its not that i mind the gore but sometimes i feel it would be better if ended well. I would rather chapter 2 stop before the eating part for example.

I also think Fran is rather cute if she wasn't also that twisted. Ironically, her sister who is suppose to be a assasin/bodyguard is more humane than she is who is supposed to be a doctor. She seem to be weak against emotions though.

The "dog" seems to be most sane one in the group though. Unfortunately he don't have much say in influencing Fran actions. The mummy girl is also interesting. I never would have thought that her function wil be so... special. I kinda feel bad for the policewoman. She had to deal with so much crap and trauma. She is a recurring side character that i would like to see again.

There are some parts i don't quite get like the actress and the artist chapters. For the artist one, the translator suggest that it is a version of "yuki onna". Does it mean he can really see supernatural stuff with the "super"eyes of his? About the actress, i know what the director did. but why do the rest of the staff got it? Did they all do it? Seems like a lot of people...
Also who killed the birthday girl on the ship? The father? Suicide, how?

The chapter that creeps me out the most is the cockroach one. Just thinking of the cockroach horde is enough to make my hair stand. I like those chapters with happy ends best. But i do know that it is ridiculous to have all of them like that. It is exactly the anticipation of bad ends that made the good ones better i think.

Veronica: "Girl on girl......"
It amuses me that the poor thing just can't wrap her head around that.

His original costume looks similar to some of the Riders. But it was basically a spoof on the entire Japanese super hero genre.

For some reason, I did not really find this chapter that enjoyable.

Niether did i, it was alright but it just didn't have that spunk that all the other chapters had. And also i didn't like the fact that Francesca was missing in this chapter too, i like her more than Fran now she's just so adorable.

Is it francesca? Frans little sister? I dont know i cant seem to remember names from manga. Oh my mistake, i think it was Veronica. I guess i was thinking strike witches.

^ Who's Francesca?

EDIT: Ahh, I see. Glad that's cleared up.


In other news, the volume 3 cover has a really hot pic.

I normally love character's like Fran, which is why I find my growing distaste for her strange. For the most part I find the monsters to be cool and I like the gory conclusions. I also like the manga so I can’t quite put my finger on what the issue is.

It's been two months without any news of a new chapter.

It's usually released monthly.

I know people that would be willing to translate this if the scans were made available (hint Hint HINT!!)

I truly adore Franken Fran and as a casual reader of all things comics I was rudely awoken to the fact that I can still react to "strong graphic content" through chapter 2. Thank heaven for that. It is truly well written while having some minor occasional dips. Nothing mayor though. It's a gem and I must have more...

...and, well, so must all of us I guess but I know precious little of how many episodes there are left (if any).
Anyways... if you cant wait, the author made another series in a slightly similar vein. It's called Helen ESP and you can get it from your regular sources.

Cheers
