It seemed they were in the human world, mixed in similar to how Kanokon does it in terms of hiding among the humans. Unsealed she was really brutal even had Vampiric touch which was cool (sucked them dry by touch!)


Actually wrote a fic continuing from the Pilot chapter it is pretty dark.

And indeed RV is still light-hearted. If I must define what light heartedis, they are still making jokes. Note how

Spoiler for Spoiler to current chapters:


Something like that is silly! There are still jokes about and moments. Things indeed got serious, thank you for noting the difference Magin.

Spoiler for Spoiler on current chapter:

Not dark. Hellsing is far more violent and Evangelion is dark. Heck even Trigun had those moments of "this sh-- is f'ked up."

This? This is a proper monster flick. I love every second of it. I like how they are showing the fruits of not only their labors, but the villains as well, they had goals too!

Dark would be the girls dying or being brutally maimed limb missing and left for dead.

That is my opinion which I entitle myself to.

It's only dark if good guys die or have irreparable things done to them. Right now things might seem dire but everyone is going to come out okay and a lot of bad guys are going to be redeemed.

Not even...it takes a whole lot more to shift a manga from shounen battle to dark themed.

Heh, this is the most I've seen you write outside of review replies, Ou-Rex.

Having a good guy die doesn't make something dark - look at Gurren Lagaan. Sure, Simon went into a pit of despair because of it but it only lasted an episode and it was right back. There might be dark chapters or darker stories tied into the main story but having one or two incidents doesn't shift the overall direction. As for Tsukune getting injected, it was treated as a power-up but the power-up came with a warning and there was always the fear that something could go wrong - and then it did.

The entire arc with the Outcast Ayashi was the darkest arc - even compared to this one. For me, it's because it happened while at the school and it was also when Tsukune was in danger of losing more than his life - his very sanity and personality, which the girls adored him for. There was the very real presence of danger in that time, not only to Tsukune, but to the other girls as well because the danger was so close (within the school).

But (thankfully) Ikeda loves comedy so he's kept it from getting too serious by putting some stuff in now and again. I mean, really Ruby...?

So, 15 pages last month, 20 pages this month...

What is this, Sekirei?

Slow plot with small chapter counts... I guess this really will take another 2 years just to finish this arc.

Hate to say it, but I'm at the point of where I'd rather have the series just end than drag on like it has.

give it a rest... long holidays...christmas and now new year... so not much time to work if you have a family on head who wants to visit rest of family...

now as it ended author might have more time to work on it... besides he mostly had to draw so he could put it into a volume.... so next volume could start with 40+ pages one

I think it has more to do with Jump Square though Claymore has also seen a reduction in the number of pages, it is the editors who decide how many pages each title recieves not the mangaka.

I would have to examine the ToC closely to see if it is right though

Not that it matters to me as long as we get something, but it is his job, right? I worked to the bone until the 24th and didn't get to slack off just because it's December. It's not all holiday cheer the entire month so cut KLG some slack...

just remember it is the editors that make the page counts not the mangaka. Also with the next volume comeing out next month it is just as likely he did have other stuff to do, ie work on it.

Even if it's 20 pages thats fine, Ikeda deserves to enjoy his holidays, at least we'll get a small chapter instead of not getting one at all.

Don't post links to the raws, since it's against the forum rules.

As for the chapter itself:

It,s next months. But the magazine comes out during the first week of the month so it would have been out during this week.
