Just discovered this series. Not sure how it took me so long.. I've been reading Akumetsu forever.

As a long-time reader of dark psychological seinen (Berserk/Zetman/Vagabond/Until Death Do Us Part/Deadman/Vinland/Akumetsu/World is Mine--to a curiosity extent.. WoM is the most pure twisted nonsense), this series didn't raise an eyebrow out of me too much--but I must say Yugo Yuuki draws some of the most twisted character expressions of any dark seinen I've read. Particularly Haguro's appearances after chapter 46 (through the raws).

I've "read" the raws up to 68 (of what MangaHelpers has).. but I need to find up to chapter 73. >_>

This series is awesome and I hope the translations keep coming.

^That's not true, she doesn't exist only to be a punching bag... she's there for fanservice too
There's some again in chapter 47, I thought it was odd she hadn't gotten naked in over 10 chapters. Other than that not much happened, just the students being assholes, the usual. Though I can understand why they're pissed , especially that blond girl (forgot her name already)...

Itll take time, but she will eventually realize that there are worse things that couldve happened than not being able to walk again, though yea, shes in some shock from it all. It takes awhile to get over that too, as you have to go through all stages of a long term depression, but eh, the manga might speed that up.

Its a large change of character for Inugami, but a welcome one.


On another note, how many people find the teacher kind of annoying? Shes like the character designed to fill a few panels or pages so the author can break own the stories for the more interesting characters.

Also, anyone else like Dragon(and feel like a totally f'ed up person for it)?

I remember some seemingly black ops teams with NVGs back in the Alaska scene. I wonder...

Oh man, I'm late for the party. (I haven't visited this forums in months...)

Anyway, count me in as a fan as well. I've recently caught a glimpse of the raw, and yes, I do relate with the reactions of everybody.

So...

Spoiler for future speculation, you've been warned:

It's pretty weird following both the raws and translated chapters, but I'm pretty glad that it's still being picked up. I thought that this would be one title that would get neglected for the more popular fare.

Wow, I have nothing to say after the latest translated chapter. He's really cracked now. And a bitch dies just like a bitch.

Woah... Hagura has totally lost it indeed. Those facial expressions of his are both scary and hilarious

Well, it's not exactly that surprising that he snaps like that.

Untouchable->Fearful & Powerless.

That's a huge emotion switch right there. I'd say he lacks emotional stability, for all his acting tough.

Ryuko is so sexy even though shes such a slut. I don't like the teacher much and i hope the mangaka brings back Yuki Sugioka and develop their relationship(wishful thinking!).

Yuki was just in a few chapters ago. Poor thing. And poor Ryuko too. Now who's going to finger themselves outside Inugami's door?

Well, Idoubt shes dead unless they show her pincushioned body next chapter, the order of events seemed a bit off, and his crazy self has had other crazy moments where he couldve killed but elected to just really hurt them, so eh.

Itd be something if all of a sudden Inugami appeared in order to protect Ryoko, just to see how shocked everyone would be, and how shed react to it.

But even I know its wishful thinking, so ill just hope she doesnt die.

I'm pretty certain that Dou is shooting at the school and not Ryuko.

I am only on ch68, what far is the raw? And where can i get? I can't even find it on Winny. If somebody can send me i won't mind making a torrent and seeding it and i got a 10mb upload connection too.

Chapter 70-73 Raw

I have my doubts as well. Too obvious. The cliffhanger ending of the chapter is too convenient.

He shoots, and we have to wait for the next the chapter to see what he was exactly shooting at.

Then again, the manga could be playing on our expectations of abrupt cliffhangers, but I doubt that's the case here.
