So, another anon finished dumping the whole original series of Saint Seiya (>>146768376) in a series of threads over the past month. Inspired by that, I'm going to dump all of Gash Bell, AKA Zatch bell, since it's a criminally underrated series.
I'll be making a thread roughly around 5pm EST every day (Starting early todayf), and will post 1 volume every day until the whole run is posted..
Please refrain from making lengthy posts till I finish the volume in each thread (short replies to pages are fine), and don't post images at all till then, so the image limit isn't hit till i'm done.
>What is Gash Bell, and why should I care>?
Gash bell is a Shonen action/comedy series by Makoto Raiku. The basic plot premise is that there are 100 kids from the demon world who come into the normal world to fight until only 1 is left standing, who is crowned king.
You should give a shit about it because it has fantastic art, great humor, really good fights with great choreography that are won by tactics and planning, (for the most part), and has a lot of legitimately emotional scenes which help make the what would otherwise be generic power of friendship stuff seem genuine, since it brings characters out of legitimately depressing and sad circumstances.
>Where did you get the scans from?
The scans are from Null's release of the series, which can be found on Mangasaurus, Bato,to. Their site is: http://www.n-u-l-l.net/
As far as I know, these are the best quality scans of the manga in English. I know there's a few chapters of the Faudo arc done by a Portuguese group that have even better quality/higher resolution, but that's in Portuguese and not even the whole arc is at that quality level.
Ebookjapan has the whole series purchasable digitally in japanese at a superior resolution and quality then the scans i'm using, but nobody has ripped them yet (I plan to eventually once I can afford to).
>Hey, wait, you said Zatch bell? So this is that shitty pokemon rip off, right?
Gash bell got localized as Zatch Bell in north america around a decade ago, primarily with the anime being the big draw. The thing is, the anime is shit, even the original japanese one. It's santized compared to the manga (especially the localized version), and it outright cuts out the entire last arc. I assure you the manga is way, way better.
But admittedly, it starts out pretty rough, and most of what I said before about the reasons why it's good won't really be true untill a pretty good ways in, especially the art.

You are mother fucker?
What would have been different in your opinion? It would change a lot the dynamic of the characters.
>no Megumin Monday thread
What's wrong with you faggots?
Has anime really been getting worse over the past few years?
What was his fucking problem?
He tried to do the right thing but got himself a little turned around somewhere. V.V. and Lelouch both twisted him around their little fingers at certain points. He shouldn't have resisted the revolution.
How can fansubbing be brought back to life?
How much value do you put into visual direction?
PV is looking pretty top notch considering most of SHAFT is working on Kizu or Sangatsu. I kinda wish they held off on Zaregoto til they had less stuff going on but beggars can't be choosers.
What are some early signs that a show will be a masterpiece?
When the first episode isn't some mysterious bullshit that expects you to glean all the characters, relationships, setting and plot passively without any explanation. I understand the standard pilot format is generic and boring, but it's a hell of a lot better than shit like Tokyo ESP, where the first episode is literally in between ep. 11 and 12.
