Unfortunately at the moment, the only US releases for the Jinki manga is Jinki: Extend volumes 1-3. The US release of JInki: Extend has apparently been temporarily halted, probably due to the fact that manga volume 8 was only released last month, and it only takes a mere 2 months at most to translate a manga volume and put it on the uS market, so I think they're probably just waiting for the Japanese manga to get some headway before resuming it. However, they apparently had problems with the licensing of the first Jinki manga, and that is currently unavailable in the states. I don't know of any scanlators doing this series.

I say whip out your kanji dictionary (although you won't need that if you can read hiragana and katana, since the kanji in the manga has furigana for the kanji).

How did Shizuka become insane and eventually chose to support Kokushou?
(in the manga)

Spoiler:


How come Kokushou has never physically aged in both manga and anime?

Although it hasn't been specifically explained yet, Kokusho used limited brainwashing to make Kousei fight Aoba in Jinki volume 4, so I'm sure he brainwashed Shizuka in the manga, too. It wouldn't have been hard, since all he would have had to do was use the feelings of love she already had for him back before everything went to hell in the volume 7 flashback.

Don't know about this one yet. They'll probably explain it at some point.

I thought there would be "more" to this OVA than what was presented. I haven't seen the original J:E series in quite some time but I remember thinking there were some serious issues that needed to be addressed in the, at that point in time, upcoming OVA but from what I've seen nothing interesting happened. I don't even remember most of issues but glancing at this thread help recall a few and even those didn't really get solved/addressed.

I forgot most of the girls' backstories besides Aoba, Rui, and that other girl blonde (now brown?) girl Aoba fought in the end of the original series but it didn't seem to matter as the OVA was basically "the girls find their path and move on, The End. Oh yeah, Ryouhei is still alive...doing stuff" type deal.

Pretty pointless OVA even though the

Well, the OVA does have a point. It's just supposed to conclude the TV series, since they didn't have enough time for an actual conclusion in the TV series. And concludes it quite well, except for the lack of conclusion for Ryohei, and the complete absence of Kokusho and Kousei.

The one, single problem with the TV series, was that it was way too short. All of the problems of the TV series are a result of that one problem. Rushing the story after episode 5, Kokusho's total nerfed-ness, Genta's lame and very shallow death, etc. All because they didn't make the series long enough to do the story and plot right like the manga does.

I guess my hunch was right after all. ADV got the license to one of last 2005 anime titles pending for distribution rights in USA.

Does that mean they'll start doing the Manga again or what. I hate it when companies do this, somebody could be scanlating it right now if they'd just come out and admit they've dropped it.

Unfortunately, I haven't heard a peep about ADV's releasing for the Jinki: Extend manga in quite a while. Hopefully they'll pick it back up eventually though.

And so I was surfing the net for Jinki: Extend stuff because I was bored, when I happened across two very rare images at IGN under their "Hottest Babes" theme. Rare, as in "I have no idea where the **** they found them" rare. And they're not fanart, they're official art. I've got the one Jinki: Extend art book there is, and these images aren't in there.

Spoiler tag for major ecchi-ness. (oooohhh, if only they zoomed in a bit on Rui in that second pic.... )

The seinen manga Jinki will be continuing in the seinen moe~ manga magazine Dengeki Moeoh

There's a nice illustration here too (NSFW)
http://www.mediaworks.co.jp/special/moeoh/index_d.php

The Jinki manga was dropped from Comic Blade after a disagreement between the author and the magazine's author.

There's still no official announcement when the manga will start in Dengeki Moeoh, but for the latest issue of Dengeki Moeoh and the next two issues there will be JINKI illustrations included

I think this show deserves a season 2.

I think this show deserves a total remake with a longer episode count to erase the rushed-ness of the second half of the first series. >.> I honestly don't think a second season could do anything, as the existing series makes it quite hard for there to be a second season. Hopefully, the restarting of the J:E manga will rev the fanship back up to make more anime possible.

- Yes and no. NSFW for some parts, definitely. It's not flat-out Yuri like Kannaduki No Miko, but there are moments. And some of the villain characters' motiviations are weird (Read: Psychotic. Kokusho being the main one).

It's very chopped up compared to the manga IMHO. The Venezuela bits are done okay, but I'm not happy with the modern-day Tokyo arc of the series where the characters are...different (Akao in the manga is a lovable ditz, while in the anime she's basically Shinji Ikari with Breasts.)

Sucks I can't get the volumes in English especially since ADV manga went defunct. Would be nice if there was a license rescue starting from the original Jinki manga. I noticed ADV started with Extend, so hopefully legal problems won't get in the way if there actually does come a license rescue, but I'm not sure if that'll happen unless this gets an anime remake(and God knows when that'll happen...) I'll just be content with the anime when I get my hands on it anyway in the meantime. Thanks!

Only Vol 1-3 were translated into English, and that's for Jinki Extend (the Tokyo arc). They didn't do a good job with translating, either, because the conversations are awkward. I had to get myself the Japanese editions and try to piece together the remainder of the story from online and what little Japanese I can understand.

...don't ask me to summarize. Jinki's been stopped and restarted so many times (with a timeskip/jumpback in each one) that it's almost nuts. Even the current Jinki series is on hiatus at the moment (AGAIN DAMMIT)
