>Great zombie manga
>Suddenly ayy lmaos
>Suddenly gantz-tier hives and shit
>Suddenly needing to impregnate lolis
What the FUCK did I just read?
The zombie plague was caused by aliens seeking to terraform earth and now all the zombies are becoming giant flesh-hives that are all searching for a specific loli since she's destined to become the queen of the hive.
>Boys on the Run author
>Implying zombiefu won't fuck off to her real boyfriend
>implying "I was just letting myself get dicked by you to survive" won't happen
>implying "and you dick is small too" won't happen
Mate, please. Hiromi's a top girl.
Don't blame Hideo after losing Oda and his waifu.
>Loli is kept uninfected
>Ayyzombies searching for a "Queen Bee" to create hybrids
>Special zombies as caretakers for the loli
The word is envy
This started out as japanese shaun of the dead and it's getting way too fucking intricate. It better be that the alien idea is actually complete bullshit and there's no real reason the hives are forming.
She doesn't even remember her worthless, gunless former boyfriend who she went out with on a whim and nothing more. She was literally dating him just to piss off her friend. Friend's got shotgun buck in her head now, so there's no real point to it.
>trusting boys on the run mangaka to produce vanilla romance
They wouldn't mention her boyfriend at all during the series if it wasn't to set the stage for some Hideo cuckoldry/suffering.
Even a gun can't defend your heart Suzuki-kun
Hitomi has become too central to the plot to become the overbitch. The boyfriend is just a narrative barrier that has been destroyed completely by Hitomi herself. I could maybe see where you are coming from if all of Hitomi's boyfriend confessions were to Hideo, because that has the "I WAS LYING ALL ALONG TO GET YOU TO LIKE ME" angle, but they were all to Oda who she has no reason to put on an act for.
If you don't think I am a hero was the best at handling a zombie epidemic out of all manga and probably one of the best among all media too, you need to have your brain checked.
Agreed on the "where the fuck is this going?" that's lowering the overall quality, even if it's giving us some really cool panels with the hives.
If you didnt realise that the zombie plague was part of something bigger by this scene then you're retarded
I was going to start reading this soon and you literally completely spoiled it for me you fucking faggot
>goes to /a/
>expects nice people
most anime watchers are moe-loving assholes if you haven't noticed.
The way he's speaking about the infection kinda foreshadows it
>is heido still a hero?
>making hiro peddal the bike
>he IS A HERO
as long as heido is still a fucking hero and a half i will keep reading it. the zombies have been weird this whole time anyways
is this also nakata?
all these chinks look the same but i think nakata is in volume 17/18 where tis skull team vs kurusu-takashi
>Great gothic game
>Suddenly ayy lmaos
>Suddenly dream realms and nightmares
>Suddenly needing to impregnate whores
What the FUCK did I just play?
also, as of last chapter
HEIDO GAVE UP HIS SHOTGUN
shotgun for a fucking kayak is a shit trade
>Suddenly needing to impregnate whores
who cares, his permit is not for a .308, his firearms permit is for his shotgun, he will be in a load of shit if someone catches him
also p sure this slag infected herself
>also p sure this slag infected herself
She was infected all along, ever since she got bit, it was just dormant for a while or something.
It's pretty funny how zombie babies basically took away both of Hiro's women (if you can call them that).
>he will be in a load of shit if someone catches him
It's no more illegal than handing out a gun to a person without a permit.
I love how autistic he is about rules, but let's be serious. This is an apocalypse. The law is effectively on stand-by.
im like p suire this is nakata
what does the shit on the left side of the page say?
he is always a little bitch about it. I hope he says something about it.
she fucking bit herself in chpt 228 and then started seeing the fuckign up veins and words
I don't think that's Nakata, I think it's that asshole from the other party.
This whole manga is some sort of long indictment against modern Japanese society. Frustrating but extremely amusing.
So, over/under or side-by-side?
I like over/under more.
like everyones name in this manga is hero also
I hope this is what Kenny Hango is like in real life
im 99% sure the "leader" of the kurusus dies somewhere between volume 12 and chaoter 191
also, this is skull mask team not kurusu
this is leader guy in/from chaptyer 12 not kurusu
this zombie from chapter 191/192/193
has the hachet, gasmask, tshirt and pads
so im p sure guy died inbetween vol 12 and vol17
and nakata of skull team killed him
is he really saying EASIER TO PISS?
Still surprising considering they usually do by themselves and fuck up spectacularly.
Part of the italian text is covered by the english translation, but it says: "Well, because .... peeing"
So I suppose yes.
If I could get the raws from somewhere I would be able to fully confirm.
Yes, that's what he says.
Even if it gets "because" wrong. It should be "perchè", but I guess it's a choice since only this characters speaks weirdly while the others speak just fine.
is kenny doing his animating like how they do in gantz/ishayami? with that computer CG bullshit?
because a alot of the new shit looks cardboard as hell
i dont care about the story or if people think its shit, i hate how it looks cardboard now most of all
What the fuck is that.
Jesus fucking christ she better get saved. This is not a good "Lone adventurer" manga. Suzuki needs to man up and carve his waifu from the hive.
He's been drawing that way for a while (using computer models for poses and laying out pages), some people pointed out that he even copy and pasted some characters in a couple chapters.
That is spanish thing talking to spanish kurusu from chapter 217/218
>Suzuki needs to man up and carve his waifu from the hive.
hes got his faggy kayak and hes rowin out to save her, rowin into the city, i hope he gets a little help from his old pal nakata
im like 90% sure its fucking nakata
reused same cells so many fuck has me so pissed off. dont care about aliens, hate this
aliens didnt ruin it shut up fagets
at least its not gay like most of all other zombie manga (is this a zombie, sunday no god, the other shit magic ones)
and 1 more time
Why the fuck do you even fucking care? Is it inducing cancer into your eyes? The man's smart, why would he have to redraw the same shit over and over for something his audience will cast their eyes upon but for a millisecond? Only autists like you bother complaining about this.
yeah im pretty sure. it wasnt always shit like this though
get some better assistants kenny, because everyone, not just autists, can see it looks like a cardboard cutout.
This shit definitely started after volume16
didnt always look like shit though
>Ever trusting the faggot who wrote Boys On The Run.
at least hiedo is still basedheido still
I don't kniw if it's lack of story comprehension or just simply autism, but why are you guys complaining about aliens and all that when it's very clearly foreshadowed? Hell, even just the fact that it's zombies should ring up alien invasion.
Some artists are really good with drawing their manga digitally, like Atsushi Kaneko and Asumiko Nakamura. I honestly thought they did most of their work traditionally until I saw videos of them drawing.
And even though he gets really over the top Sakamoto Shinichi is probably the best one right now.
I remember I wanted to scream at the fucker for suggesting to follow people into a crowded space to escape the zombies.
Every single zombie apocalypse story, and people keep making the same mistakes.
At least Hideo has an excuse, what with his psychological problems.
Of course I would. But that doesn't change the fact that in the safe environment of my room I am capable of more rational thought than stupid zombie apocalypse protagonist in severe distress.
i miss how fucked it used to look when they would see stuffed animals
they even talk about it in the takashi chapters
on 2ch they dont call them zombies on purpose, hence ZQN or zombfag. they avoid using it as a derogatory term
I always thought she was just half-infected, with all the veins and stuff
kurusus dont get all that shit,
and I was thinking in a crazy half naked berserk waifu, cmon.
I heard it was ending soon and I thought about picking it up, but did scanlations die recently? That would suck, I'd hate to be blueballed like that so close to the ending, but I guess some of you anons have been dealing with it far worse.
For anyone wondering, yes, there is still translations, but the volumes come out every 6-9 months or so. One came out only a few months ago, so we gotta wait till the new one shows up.
It sucks when you binge read it, because then you have to wait forever.
all kurusus are half infected or something
he is super cute, but i think she is technically first kurusu because kurusu wasnt introduced at that point yet.
>tfw no manga about russian zombie apocalypse
>literally untouched goldmine
Someday I will make it. Do not steal.
because nothing would be changed
it might even start to look better
I always think that zombie apocalypse is more about where it happening. About setting. US is more annoying than interesting right now. But RU is unreached. People for example don't know so much about russian towns, villages, nature etc.
places like england and japan are interesting because of their serious lack of guns
russia would probably unchanged. everyone probably has a tank anyways. but seriously, because of its lack of population density + the abundance of military surplus seems like it would make for american style one with more people already used to being run by a mob state
so the structure of government would change as much
it would present an interesting idea to deal with russian wild life/ winter (who read national geographic this month with russian winter?)
i think a place like singapore (bestr state in asia), the philippians (islands and lower class of people), somewhere in africa (lower class/education + wild life) would cool as well
austraila would be a good one i think
-a landscape that already wants to kill you more than the zombies
it would be a heavier focus on surviving with zombies than surviving from zombies
id read that
nakata's new skull team slut girl is also a kurusu, but in a different way. it seems like when she got bit, her leg regenerated into this thing
Much better at long range shooting and it has a higher stopping power than the 20 gauge slugs and 12 gauge buckshot hiro was using (How the hell his shotgun can use two different size shells is beyond me)
Ammo types aside, the rifle they got looks like to be bottom fed, meaning it can hold at least more than 2 rounds before reloading, so less fuddling around with ammo when in combat
The only downside its not a dual barrel, but a bold action, meaning he needs to reload its barrel using the bolt every time he needs to fire, while the shotgun could fire one shot after the other in sequence without any other action needed
In general is a much better weapon, the scope can also be handy to check out ahead
This manga is terrible, self-insert mangaka in the walking dead world, with "realist japanese people" are just zombies of ugly faces.
People only care because how the amazing art.
I was here once (Stalin's bunker) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wre_5uE12uQ
Second one in this town already was flooded. Rumors say there is secret tonnel here. I can imagine what will happen around when zombie apocalypse begin. This is the city center
naked emporor is fighting cos highlander
takashi is fighting because kurusu killed his waifu
kurusu is fighting because kurusu a shit
I also think Takashi-kurusu killed Kowashi takeshi on their way to toyko and now as a ZQN he wants to kill kurusu
this is old "leader" of kurusu. he had become a zombie and the zombies rebuilt him after nakata kllled him. so, now i think hes got maddd beef with kurusu because hes point right at him.
no, its because hideo is suppossed to be a hero, but hes not. he hides, he runs, he doesnt shoot, he makes the hiro pedal the bike while he rides on back, and has a published manga called "Uncut Penis"
hideo is a lowlife and its fun to watch him make lowlife decisions
To be fair him riding on the back is legitimate, he's the only one that can aim the gun and you can't exactly steer and line up a shot at the same time. He's definitely become more of a hero as the manga has progressed.
>probably one of the best among all media too
WWZ book is the best, because mankind manage to survive zombie apocalypse and win. Also Japanese hikikomori with katana priceless.
It means shit just got as lot more convoluted for no reason other than for convolution's sake. The entire message so far has been "None of this really matters, there's no meaning to any of this, try and survive" but then you get ALIEN INVASION WITH THEIR OWN MOTIVES and all of this suddenly becomes meaningful.
to be fair, yeah
but even after they fuck and stuff, still wants back even though she cant pedal for shit
Among of all movies and books about zombies, WWZ make believe how strong mankind is and can fight for live and keep sanity faith in the future. And mankind win zombies is rare stories usually zombies prevail.
"We win in the end" Is the standard feel good ending you know. Most disaster media ends like that.
I dunno, multiple simultaneous infections for no reason like in I Am A Hero would wreak a lot of havok. There was no patient zero, shit just sort of happened.
its actually fairly common back in the day in America. Its a cheap effective hunting weapon
Its also popular in Russia because you need to own a shotgun before you can own a rifle
oh my god that page looks fucking brutal
Infection through bites is easily containable by any 3rd world nation.
>I dunno, multiple simultaneous infections for no reason like in I Am A Hero would wreak a lot of havok. There was no patient zero, shit just sort of happened.
Of course aliums infecting multiple cities at once with zombies that infect you with even their blood is going to cause a lot of shit. But most zombie apocalypse settings start out with a patient zero slow zombie which bites 10000+ people a day just isn't believeable.
The movie was pretty bad.
>"We win in the end"
It is about 2 billion zombies in deep ocean left. It was a devastating war some countries even manage to extinct. Only USA, Russia and South Africa survive and some countries.
>yfw american army didn't bring enough ammo bcoz muh shock and awe
The American army would probably win against the zombies as long as they had resources left. The problem in TWD was that after a few weeks of looting, a billion fucking people didn't have any meds left and simply turned into zombies.
probably wouldn't look so bad and obvious if it didn't look it looks so detached from the background. Pasting his shit carelessly (not just the bike) is making his lines really inconsistent.
Just rob the vending machine, such a fucking pussy
Ebola would like a word with you.
in wwz it was fucking pathetic how bad max brooks wrote the army. No arty, no real air support, tanks shooting ap instead of canister, not bringing boatloads of ammo, no lavs, no b52s holy fuck.
exactly. it never used to be this sloppy. it was pretty seemless until chapter 190. someone is not doing the brightness levels properly so they standout like a sore fucking thumb. but in those recent ones they also look grainy and not scaled properly either
fucking kenny, get a new assistant
a mans honor
I read every volume released shortly after the most recent one was out (june or july I think)
pretty disappointing how long translations take. I mean I'm learning moon, but I'm nowhere near this level.
you guys like hives right?
you dont need to into moon, or even chinese
just look at them a lot, figure out the context, and it all makes sense.
just when ever a japan bro is in a thread, ask a question
uhhh maybe i dont know i dont even anything but english, but its like 90% pictures anyways
I just dont know 100% if its nakata in chapter 191
ok a few things im unclear about but a lot (like HxH fucking) are pretty....black and white....
The difference is, Gantz was a mess of "lol random" whereas HERO built up everything without getting side-tracked with random shit, so the plot progress is entirely coherent.
The underlying plot may be similar, but this is a FAR better work.
makin little girls do the killing
Hideo, Volume 16
Still a hero
all the alien shit is still only speculation
no one has said for sure aliens, and we have never even seen an alien yet
everything thus far has been human mutations
and aliens doesnt explain some of the shit like the naked empor saving hideo while kurusu was trying to kill him,
or why kurusu's are even a thing
also, a lot of the shit in chapter 217-218 that i just posted are from his perspective, so hes seeing fucked up stuffed animal type shit.
In chapters 200ish getyting bit repairs this girls leg and shes not showing kurusu type crazy
but these (pic) are rebuilding a warrior using only his head
all speculation about aliens nothing confirmed yet
We actually saw a chapter form a ZQN perspective, where a man with only a head and legs is walking through observing the now ZQN-only city.
He did not have memories, but he still had human mind, and confirmed the existence of the unified intelligent entity. He then meets a Kurusu-like ZQN and have a conversation about the "aliens".
Because his sensibility is still that of a human, he referred to their actions as "invasion".
But the Kurusu ZQN replied it only seems like an invasion because you're still stuck with the concept of life and death. When you realize the meaningless of such distinction, you'd realize this is not an invasion.
So it's not just us readers speculating, dude.
I'm an italian who took spanish in high school
1st page 2nd panel: This is ehxausting
2nd page 1st panel: The city is in an impeccable state of cleanness
2nd page 2nd panel: It's as if it's calmly waiting for its next lords
3rd page 1st panel: ZQN, it's either the zombies or us, right?
thats chapter 217-218
so anyone who speaks spanish can translate it for us non spanish speakers that would be great,,,,
The next few pages he observes how the entire purpose of these newly crafted ZQNs that does not resemble humanoid seems to be to clean and maintain the city.
The human infection was to rid of humans from the city, and now the hive is pumping out ZQN modeled after inanimate objects of the city to clean up the mess and make everything clean again. "Liveable" again.
Right to left
1st panel: Did they make me put down roots here at random? Let me feed me from the soil while I think in peace?
3rd panel: Well, it's not bad. While I'm enjoying this nice view...
4th panel: I'll reflect on where does the humanity of this world stop
It was him realizing his legs were growing leaves, and about to root into the ground, and that he was probably created by the Hive to find a place for observation and turn into a tree to watch over the town.
1st two panels: This is a senseless question. Since we found each other, let's make use of it.
3rd panel: Then I'll change the question. Do you think this can be considered an extraterrestrial invasion of Earth?
4th panel: Oh, you really think this is an invasion?
5th panel: Yes I do, I think a new species is trying to eliminate humanity.
6th panel: Now, having seen this I don't understand it clearly, it alternates life and death inside it, without an apparent exit.
7th panel: Which direction does life go?
also links to raw, i dont have any raws past chapter 215 (volume18)
man you nigger speaking japanese, thats cheating.
can you answer a few questions for me /us? in reguards to plot?
There are more conversation before, and following it.
(from the previous page)
Head-log ZQN: Are you... human?
Kurusu ZQN: That's a pointless question. Let's make a better use of our encounter here.
HL: Well then, let me change my question. To put it bluntly... can we consider this an extra-terrestrial invasion?
Kurusu: Ohohohoho. It's completely nonsense to distinguish between terrestrial and extra-terrestrial. You think this is an invasion?
HL: Yes, that's how I see it. To exterminate humanity and bring prosperity to a new species.
But seeing what I see here, I'm not so sure of their motives now. This ZQN (a ZQN sitting in front of them that resembles a human hymen) seems to be repeating birth and death all within itself, with no exit.
Kurusu: Where does life head to? To find a way out of cycle of life and death.
HL: Do you mean immortality?
Kurusu: No. I suppose you would have a difficulty time understanding it as long as you live within the cycle of life.
ZQN... to be Zombie or not to be.
This is the entirety of the conversation between two.
Japanon, my main question is
IS THIS NAKATA-SAN?
thank you anons
Yes, it is. And he's just as awesome as a survivalist as he was a mangaka.
Dude is one of the coolest character in the manga, and a very good leadership. I hope he doesn't bite it.
also, Is this ZQN
is he the old "leader" of kuki-shogunate?
not a kurusu/takashi
it said his name was "takeshi"
is that who this is?
yesssss! nakata is gonna finger hiromi on a motorcycle!
did he trade his shotgun for a kayak in chapter 230?
and is takashi talking to hiro via KURUSU POWERS?!?
in chapter 227
also did hiro infect herself in chapter 228-230?
No, just a battle-type ZQN.
There are ZQNs who seems to be enhanced for battle.
The Hive produces many different ZQNs to fit different purpose.
Kurusu do not seem to be part of that, having their own hive-connections and retain consciousness. They're pretty much faction of their own it seems.
Pretty big spoiler here,
Hiromi hinted in one of the latest chapters that Hideo may be one of her kind, as in half-infected as well. Not from them having sex, but from the bite he got from his ex-girlfriend. She asks him if he's seen dreams that connects to other people, which he certainly has.
He gave the Slug to the ferry-man for carrying him all the way to Tokyo. He can't carry two rifles anyways.
He's going to head to the Hive to save Hiromi.
Hiromi realized Oda died because of her. The baby that bit her synchronized to her wishing death of Oda in a burst of emotion.
Feeling guilty of what she did, and realizing she can control the ZQNs, she controlled the hive to pick her up off the boat and bid Hideo farewell.
But Hideo decided this is the time to stop running away and become a true hero, and goes after the hive to get her back.
And no, his infection likely happened at the start of the manga, not recently.
Wait don't tell me Takeshi-Kurusu is really linked with the two failures he killed. I know the original Kurusu was having fucking mind-chats with the unacknowledged emperor but Takeshi fucked those two jokers so hard they turned into a mutant. He shouldn't have to deal with edgy child and notice me man.
is the zombie in these pages the same guy as the pic im posting now?
they are wearing like almost the same thing, and that zombie has a serious hard on for Takashi-kurusu
He was an ugly mangaka just like Hideo, but unlike him he was successful and eccentric, and also former boyfriend of the girl Hideo is dating.
Despite this, Nakata was totally cool with Hideo, and one of the very few people who thought he had a real talent in him.
Nakata is basically Eiji from Bakuman. Loveable goof but a true genius and likes the protagonist.
Hideos gf from chapter 1, her ex BF who is a successful mangaka
>Behaving like this
The only thing implied was that something was going on with the zombies that made them gather and that some of the crazy stuff they said may have had more to it.
Aliens was out of nowhere.
I honestly don't remember who that is, and the ZQN was actually going after Nakata's group if I remember correctly. On the highway.
As for the gear, it's standard gear for the survivors of Tokyo.
also, last question japanbro
does his shirt say something funny?
the guy whos pic, he was the one leading kurusu group. he found takashi.
this zombie gets rebuilt
and has a clear hard on to want to kill takashi-kurusu
hes pointing at takashi-kurusu in the window i think
he was the moderate leader guy who is now missing from the group as of the newest chapters
introduced same time as kurusu like volume 8 or something
A fairly large community of survivors are holed up in tall building in Tokyo.
The leader is a handsome young man who bangs the chicks and converts people to religiously follow him like a cult leader. He boasts being able to pilot a helicopter that's parked at the top of the building.
The able-bodied scavengers of this community of survivors wear the gear you see, and in particular Nakata and his group wears the skull masks. In fact, others in his group are urging Nakata to take up arms and overthrow the prettyboy, but he's unwilling to take the risk and start a fight among surviving humans.
Do you fuckers even read what they write? Obviously not.
>I Am A Hero: We have v17 scanned and I have v18 at home, but our translator hasn’t answered the emails I sent for the last month or so. I sent another one tonight, but if I don’t hear back, I’m unfortunately going to have to find someone else.
The uterus is in front of the Doorway to the Nativity.
>Not liking Takashi
Fuck off. Takashi is one of us. We should all automatically like him because he's one of the few NEET representatives we have in fiction that aren't made out to be like complete dorks.
holy shit i thought that was part of the hive/ZQN vision
takashi is one of us
Here's the interior
Why wouldn't you want the alien thing to be real? It's a fantastic reason to explain the zombies and how they behave, it's been well developed and hinted, on top of being more original than some whatever virus.
There was also that panel where some anon on 2chan posed as an alien said that they were pretty much behind the zombie apocalypse.
Many people seem to complain about the "aliens" thing being an asspull, but truthfully, it seems like this was planned out a while ago. But I guess LOLALIENS were so batshit insane that most people literally didn't even think about it until it happened.
saying its aliens is like saying its gods or something, it kinda gives it an unbalanced feeling, instead of being a more manmade/ natural occurring level playing field .
i dont hate the aliens angle though, it could be worse, it could be
wait is the leader the guy in that slick coat?
Are magazine fed semi auto shotguns legal in Japan?
I didn't read any restrictions about it, and I saw a blog about some American guy living in Japan going bird hunting with a Browning Auto 5.
could have a magazine plug to limit it
thats what they do in America. There's a wood dowel in the mag tube to limit mag size to 3 for hunting I think. You can take it out after hunting
