Also if ever I wanna see a "LILITH" type of girl in the Adam's(arc and blade) lives.
Yamada-ko chan could fit that role. Nah just kidding

Ruri does show affection and strong loyalty towards Arclight. She even loved Arclight's crazy evil smile and his monster form at the end of vol 8.

Yeah...probably because of that rib tentacle assault he gave her couldn't get enough.

Well for now our main hero is Yamada-ko, wonder if the author intended that from the beginning after revamping Needless. The timeline of Vol.0 needs to be or probably is rectoned by now to fit the current events.

besides from the chapters i posted, theres also 2 more chapters in volume zero 2:

- 『NEEDLESS HorrorHouse』

Took place between chapter 17 and 18. when Eve was captured and Disk had joined the party. The night before Arclight gave his speech. A filler comedy story featuring Disk, Cruz and Gido.



- 『NEEDLESS Goldilocks』

Episode 6's story




Another interesting thing I discovered was that the author planned "Needless 1" and "Needless 2" simultaneously before Needless began serialization. With Needless 1's protagonist as Adam Blade and Needless 2's protagonist as the same Adam girl seen in vol 0. The author said that his early works on Needless were not published in Doujin or any magazine while only his close colleagues and friends get to see them.

Needless 2 story took place after the events of Needless 0. Thus the name "Needless 1.5" was given to the prequel. Thus theres a high chance the author will continue the Needless universe story even after the original manga ends.

The author had also drawn a spin-off story about the boy with "sound" ability in vol 0. The story was 330 pages long and published in a doujin magazine. The doujin title was called [Black Spot].

With this insane amount of extra chapters, Madhouse could use them to cover up the anime episodes to make Simeon arc end on episode 26 while the blu-ray extras would most likely cover vol 9's story.

Not possible. It was published in one of those doujin magazines seen in comiket which means its in limited quantities. Unless some jap helpful soul would generously scan and upload them, I highly doubt it. Im more interested in Needless 2 compared to that spinoff. The author had drawn a prototype story of Needless 1 and 2 with a total combination of 2000 pages! Both which were never officially published and known only to those close to the author.



Interestingly according to the timeline, the "undead" ability guy and china girl stories in vol 0 took place after the main story.

And prototype image of Eve (in the future?)

And which,the story we have now here is just a small adventure in this "blackspot"

Those 3 girls are often the center of attention when it comes to moe factor in Needless. Needless isn't a shonen series in the first place. The author can go "no holds barred" if he wants.

Speaking of H, this is the one image that definitely speaks up for itself.

Spoiler for NSFW, will cause nose bleed:

Use "Edit" feature rather than deleting your own post next time.

And as far as I know, Cruz wasn't in any prototypes. He is unique to the manga story.

Needless 2 will probably feature all new characters, so I rather stick with the current storyline since the characters grew on me. Needless 2 is just something the author can use to further the story if he wants, presuming the war with Arclight is concluded. Or there is a potential timeskip like Gurren Laggan?

Looks like the spin off doujin looks like the Second is the main protagonist.

NEEDLESS HorrorHouse is what Iam waiting for to get scanned.

and yes like pirate king said, the current anime and manga Needless characters grew on me, will just wait what Needless2 is all about.

And a side note prototype Adam Blade looks like.


Probably the author wanted Blade and Seto to be the ones together... =/

I believe this is just another work from the mangaka which had nothing to do with Needless. Though the 2 girls did resemble Mio and Setsuna.


http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=12201

On the correction, the [Black Spot] doujin is 330 pages long while the prototype Needless 1 and 2 are 2000 pages long altogether. A 2000 page book would be super long in length and near impossible to publish.

well according to pirateking Cruz was not in the prototype manga, so maybe he and the others will be in later storylines, unless they go with the sacrifice life to save world approach
