It has an animated commercial made by Shonen Sunday, but it's too new to have spawned a TV series.

You can find the animation link here: http://websunday.net/theater/

Honestly, MAR didn't really hold my attention until right about where we've currently released, and then chapter 29 nearly caused me to have a heart attack (a profoundly " " moment), but then it recovered. Now I'm seriously looking forward to each chapter. In fact, it ruined my day finding out that Anzai's taking a break next week... no Alviss for me...

Not currently scanned in. He's pretty much just returned in the current chapters, but he's getting lots of scenes. And he has a new outfit.

Lesse... Toramizu Ginta has dreams about a fairytale land for years, then one day he's given an opportunity to travel to that land later revealed to be named 'Mar-Heaven' (there's these 2 dots over the 'a' in 'Mar'... but I can't seem to get the forum to register them when I type it in... :/). He goes around, finds a mysterious weapon ARM (all weapons are known as 'ARMs', also with the two dots, they're magic... things, lots of different kinds, that do stuff like create fire or summon giant beasts). He finds companions, fights an evil group of warriors calling themselves the 'Chess no Koma', and generally just messes around until volume 4 ^_^U

Um, I recommend that if you try it, you give it 2 volumes before you pass jugdement, 'cause there are some " " moments in the beginning.

i haven't read the manga, but i have watched the anime up to episode 39. There hasn't been any blood spilling scene so far, i wonder if its the same in the manga

Last edited by cheese no koma; 2006-01-09 at 06:38. Reason: just realised that this is manga department and i previously include some stuff from the anime, so just trying to take them out

Personally i like MAR better than Flame Of Recca, the ninja thing just wasn't for me. But then we got the dumb Ginta, who's a total laugh and along with jack who's even a greater laugh than Ginta. Then you got Dorothy, the hot witch. Hahhahha ^_^. Overall it's a great manga and i've lost places to dl the scans so im stuck getting Vizs copy of it.

I somehow found Galian's motivations for joining the Chess rather weak...
Spoiler:
All that foreshadowing with Nanashi seemed to be diminshed because of this, and thus their (destined) battle just becomes another normal tournament match, when it could have been more.

i kinda agree with you there, but i'm still hoping that they would add more reasons to it like maybe galian join the chess to avoid any bloodshed on his comrades at that time when peta asks him coz he's weaker than peta

i like MAR very much...

however, i think it will fail in the US market.

there really isnt this kind of audience for it. it targets the middleschool aged kids, and i dont see them buying much manga at the store.
