Seikon no Quasar

I'm going to tuck my observations and running commentary on this into spoilers... Just for the sake of not hacking people off... I don't speak Japanese, though, so my own mileage is a bit limited.

If you want it.. eh.. look for Seikon no Keisa. I'm not telling you where.

Champion RED is a monthly publication. It came out some time in the middle of last month, so it's maybe a week or two (two at the absolute most) before chapter 2 comes out.

One nice thing about it being monthly, each installment is larger than an average chapter. The debut chapter was over 50 pages long.

Are you sure that is the correct spelling to use, Gearhead? "Seikon no Keisa" nets a whopping ten results on Google and zero on TorrentDB, IsoHunt or MiniNova.

*Pokes Google irately* Only the second chapter can be found...

Because, Ichi, the main character, Sasha, is a dead ringer for our mysterious male lead of the Otome comic who has HiME-like powers. Male Mashiro was never actually NAMED in the comic, the one place where he says his name is a silent panel.

The main enemies bear a striking resemblance to Schwartz.

And Sasha DEFINITELY has some form of matter manipulation power.. though his domain seems to be Metal instead of solidifying light. There are odd secondary effects, though, where crystals tend to form from the air when he really starts rolling... Especially when he conjures up his explosive scythe.

Ritual Scan Forge has been putting up raws. I'll see about feeding them out into the wild at some point in the very near future so folks don't have to be really on the ball, or literate in French, to find them.

Anyone please could cast away my doubts.

Does Seikon no Quasar holds any relation to My-HiME or My-Otome at all?

The jury is still out, only two chapters have been released so far (it's serialized monthly as opposed to weekly). There are quite a few Otome-original characters, however, who appear as members of Sasha's class. The main villain of this initial arc also uses some early form of a REM as a weapon.

Sasha's power, though, doesn't initially seem to be derived from the solidification of light the way a HiME's is, though. His primary means of manipulation is controlling the shape of metal. By touching a metal object he can, with effort, change its form (he's fond of scythes, I think). By dragging his fingers through it, he can cut it like it was cut with a molecular edge.

He does, however, wear something that may be related to a GEM or REM in his ear that behaves VERY oddly depending on how angry he is. Likewise, he has a vicious scar that is completely invisble until he starts using his powers, then appears.. and then begins to bleed profusely.. as his power consumption rises.

Going theory is that the world that Seikon no Quasar is set in is probably the world that Sergei August called the ShadowHiME from, and Sasha is the past incarnation of the male Mashiro in the Otome comic.

Is there any sources for raw 1 of Seikon? Still haven't been able to find it and the comic's been sold out already...

On another note, doesn't anyone that the new character (Teresa) resemble Alyssa?

I'll see what I can do about putting the raws up on at least Rapidshare once I have a moment to think. I've been working on a paper for one of my midterms that's been consuming most of my active thoughts.

Some observations on Chapter 3 while I'm at it...
