Ad Astra per Aspera [Manga]

Who's started reading Hata-sensei's (creator of the Hayate the Combat Butler manga) new manga, Ad Astra per Aspera?

The first half of chapter one is rather interesting, poking fun at the manga industry and taking cues from various sources. I wonder if Hata-sensei will plod this manga's plot along as he has with Hayate the Combat Butler.

I like what I see so far. It classic Hata-Sensei all right. Comedy with a nice undercurrent of potential tragedy.

When I read "Ad Astra", I thought it would be the historical manga about Scipio and Hannibal for a moment

Seems it isn't though.

I will say that this first half of chapter one has a definite plot in it. I think back to Hayate the Combat Butler, and I didn't realize there was a real plot until the Athena flashback story. I'm guessing that when we see the 2nd half of this chapter, that plot stuff will continue. I'm hoping that Ad Astra per Aspera then continues to move plot and not get bogged down just trying to do gag comedy.

I read it. It was a struggle. I wanted to quit after the first 20 pages, blah blah woe is me I'm always being bullied look at my cool friend blah. And of course Shinobu is not going to be executed. He's going to get out of this scrape somehow and be on the run from the empire and fall in with the girl on the cover and this manga is going to run for another 500 chapters with no resolution in sight.

Thanks but no thanks, Hata. Get back to finishing Hayate first.

I liked this first half chapter. The bullying theme seems to be a little more popular in manga today. I didn't get that they felt angst over it, more that these are a couple of weak guys.

As long as this manga doesn't interfere with Hayate the Combat Butler, I'm OK with it.

that was a really good chapter.

Despite what others are saying, the bullying part came off pretty smoothly tho a little awkward. The part with the glasses kid helping the MC out had a nice feel to it and was well done. The setting is really interesting and did a good job to make wonder how the story will go.

Isn't it supposed to be Chapter 1b? Anyway... So betrayed by his friend on the second segment of the first chapter... In that sense Hata Kenjiro reminded me of his other manga Hayate no Gotoku. Seems like innocent or simply unfortunate characters being toyed by other people are a recurrent topic...

I get a War on Geminar feeling with these mecha for some reason. Versailles comes off like an emperor or shogun, which is what I'm betting the miko is (or at least, the daughter of the emperor). I'm not sure if I've seen a magical mecha before, but it looks pretty cool.

Yep. This was all to be chapter one. Now that Hata-sensei has put Hayate on the shelf for three weeks, I guess we'll see some more chapters coming out in succession.

I was surprised by the betrayal. After rereading the entire chapter (A and B), I get the feeling that Shatou saw Shinobu as upstaging him by taking the mecha and making it go. As such, Shatou saw his last chance at glory die, thus he told his friend to die.

I guess the miko's name is Patty, based on this part of the first chapter?

Still, taking the both parts of the first chapter, there's a clear plot here for a series that will seemingly be more about plot and less about, "Oh, I need to stop everything for several weeks to do nothing but gag chapters that avoid the plot." Other than the premise to get Hayate to become Nagi's butler, I didn't think there was a real plot in HnG until the Athena flashback arc. So I'm hoping AAPA will continue what the first chapter has done -- plot with gags as part of the plot, when acceptable.

That nice Mecha, didn't expect the part with his friend betraying him, also the creepy bunny turning into a cute girl.

I kinda thought the bunny would be the girl, since the girl was featured so prominently in the promo artwork. There was always a chance though that

With the chapter 3, we likely had the begin of harem with Patty and Satella who seems to be an interesting character with a good story behind her.

I don't believe the manga will follow the same pace than Hayate the Combat Butler.
They are both in the same magazine, it would not make much sense to write a Hayate 2 and it is a monthly manga, the pace is too slow to allow many chapters unrelated to the main story, it would take too long.
