COME THE FUCK ON. Why does Raiku keep killing off the best characters right when they come back? First Won Lei, then Ted and now Bari. WHAT THE FUCK. They come back for a couple chapters, kick some ass, then get their books burned right after.
I honestly thought Won Lei was gonna be one of the last demons in the fight, but they fucking killed him off to Unko tintin. It's like Raiku killed them off just so Gash wouldn't have to face them.
Every demon has to die by the end of this, there can be only one winner.
Gotta kill a few of the good ones each arc, and a few of the bad ones. Killing a few good ones each arc raises the stakes, since you don't know who might die here.
Previous arc is was Kid, Leila, Patty, and a few others.
Unko Tintin was pretty tough, Won Lei surpassed what was possibly against him for a brief moment, and had a good scene by the end.
Barry was one of the best as well, even until the end of the story he's probably one of the strongest, but his character arc was sort of wrapped up when he got over his arrogance and pride and perfected his personality. He got his final battle against his rival and had a somewhat good showing there, but obviously Gash needs to be the one to fight the next guy from a personal angle. After all you've probably noticed that Zeon looks just like Gash, and there's probably a reason for that.
They gotta start eliminating everyone at a faster rate with this arc, and the next one. Since this is the final hundred chapters or so.
I liked how Bari grew as a character, but after finding out he defeated one of the prodigy dragons seeing him go back to the demon world the way he did seems like a waste.
I liked how Won Lei went out too, protecting what was most important to him. But I thought he was gonna be one of the last remaining, so I was disappointed to see him gone so early.
Am I really gonna have to keep reading under the assumption Tio, Umagon and fucking Kyanchome will be in the final 10?
She had nothing regarding battle sense, she was just a normal kid in the end. Momon was actually pretty proactive about shit, but just in a backwards way.
Though in the end, who knows. She was more a demonstration of how the system could be fucked up at times.
Tio, Umagon, and Kanchome are final five or so; but shit is going to get painful in the final arc, where they're pushed to their limits.
Of course Tio, Umagon, Kanchome, and Gash have pretty good odds of surviving since they've basically formed a team here. If anyone tries to attack one of them, the others are there to bail their ass out.
Although I will say that Gash does end up fighting one of the good demons before the end, in an all out battle. Rather than it just being him vs evil guys the entire time.
>Although I will say that Gash does end up fighting one of the good demons before the end, in an all out battle. Rather than it just being him vs evil guys the entire time.
Actually, twice come to think of it, but Gash loses one of those.
Its not really a fight to the death at least. Though he does use Baou.
Well, I don't wanna be spoiled, I was just wondering if they were the final five.
I'm guessing it's not Zeon, since I feel like he's gonna get defeated before the frado arc ends.
Tell me /a/, why is Gash Bell so good?
I find hard to believe that there so few mangas that can be both light-hearted and good at the same time.
The only other series that I can come out that could compare, without being necessarily better, is Medaka Box.
Why Victoream appears as one of Gash's friends during the final chapters? I don't even remember he doing any melon reference in the manga before that point, did that happened in some kind of extra chapter?
Also that first ice child.
Of course he's the mentor in the final arc, since every time you beat a bad guy he's converted to the good side basically.
He unlocks the heroes potential, so that they have a chance against the final boss.
The scene where the nun is crying about how proud she was of Momon, how he never had to hurt a single person was so touching
>Kid "becoming like the Doctor"
>Byonko having the fastest and most awesome redemption moment in the whole manga, Patty not falling behind
>what you said about Momon
>Riya, Cardio, Ted, Wonrei and Barry (even Zaruchim and Rodeaux) go out fighting, protecting someone and/or showing their growth
>Earth of all people scared shitless of death and Elly comforting him
>all that shit about hippos and Folgore, Purio being a replacement for Luppa's son and fucking Gorm missing Kanchome
So much character development in these moments. This manga made me cry so fucking much as a teen.
What were you expecting? It's just a corny action shonen. I think it's a corny shonen done very, very right. My favorite "mon" series for sure.
And you sure lasted a long ass time reading it if you didn't even liked it. How much was that in volumes, more than 30? Sounds like torture to me.
Well, it's not the best thing ever but I still think it has fairly strong characters (if corny/trite) who learn, change and grow, and pretty good action, definitely above average; and from the very beginning. Some fights are just awesome. Baransha's and the team fight against Demolt for instance are beautiful in my opinion.
Plus Raiku is very good at doing insane random shit and it's very amusing. His cartoony reaction shots are 10/10.
>Zeon doesn't dodge his attack to show respect for him later
This guy indeed.
Raiku sure loves hippos.
Awesome fights full of tactics; with power progression, energy pools and attack calling that fucking make sense, all of this established and consistent in quality from the beginning. Characters that, while not too deep or even original, have actual development. Mons have personalities and often, a great relationship with their human, seeing them go can be really sad, this manga is very good at this. Also Raiku's sense of humour mixed in. That's good too.
Just an overall good shonen for its intended purpose; being
Because it's a shounen where the power of friendship is an actual attribute that boosts your powers. Someone giving you a helping hand will physically give you a power boost, and Gash is the friendliest motherfucker on the planet.
Raiku is also fantastic at writing quick characters and doing gags, and he managed to pace Gash in a very very good way until the last bit. He also pulled off all of those cliche yet badass moments that shounens usually have in ways that didn't ruin the character.
ENGLISH RELEASE PAST THE FAUDO ARC NEVER!
Nah, the bonus chapters show that Gash really is running shit, somewhat, even though Earth is the one pushing Gash the entire way and getting him to do work.
Earth is Gash's vice president who you could say is actually running shit a bit in the background.
Although Zeon probably helps a lot.
Zeon loves his big brother very much.
Also to the anon asking about chapters, they're all on Batoto.
Anime and manga are entirely different
Especially in the portrayal of Zeon, and that arc in general.
Zeon had reasons for his shit, even if he realized his reasons weren't really right in the end. His reasons gave him some credence however, compared to the anime where he was just an edgelord or something.
I still don't get why Zeon's father gave him such a meaningless harsh life if he knew that Zeon inherited his malice and was already likely to revolt.
It's not like he was training Zeon to be the king. I don't understand his motives.
>tfw there will never be a sequel series that details Gash's demon school adventures in parallel with Kiyomaro's high school life and internal moral struggle over the use of Answer Talker
I wouldn't want that anyway. If he still has a series in him I'd love to read something new.
The animal thing was great for something with such a stupid premise. But the damn stupidity of the story hindered my enjoyment.
Like why couldn't the fish talk? What's this racist bullshit?
See we got a fish fucker in this thread, apparently.
But really, the real tragedy of that series was that it got so heavy that he changed the genre halfway through from seinen to shounen. And unlike gash, he didn't have time to develop ANYBODY new because of a timeskip so we'd get: Tough animal appears --> Gets a sobstory --> Dies nobly. Final fight was fantastic though, since it wasn't completely focused on the shit villian, original gangster, triple G.
He got it back, which was an entire point in the final arc.
Dufaux trained him how to use it again
He lost Answer Talker before the final arc, and then gained it back, when Dufaux taught him that he just wasn't using it right yet.
Which is disproved in that image
He couldn't use it normally at first, since he could only use it in dire situations.
However he trained to be able to use it normally after that.
That extra chapter in Animal Land makes me not want it to happen.
>No one talks to Gash because he's the King
>No one hangs out with Gash because of King duties
Being the King is suffering
