I've been thinking...what are the chances of an Arakawa side-story compilation? You know, a tankobon with STRAY DOG, all three (four) chapters of Shanghai, Bat in a Blue Sky, etc. Otherwise I doubt we'll see any of them state-side.
Yeah, that will be nice!!! I'll buy it!! biggrin.gif

Not that I know of. I'll use LJ to keep you guys in the link, seeing as they tend to know this stuff even before we do.

I'm not feeling to good on this one. The main character looks too plain, to generic. Looks like the kid from Shanghai grown up.

Second that.

Not only the main character, this series is giving out a feeling of "too standard a shounen" to me that I don't like. But certainly it's way too early to judge happy.gifU I just commented this because this was the reason "souten..." looked better at first to me and why I was a little bit disappointed when I knew it'd be (and most certainly was) only a one-shot.

But, whatever, shall we just apply the ol' wise saying: "wait and see" happy.gif

Well, I waited, and I saw.
A completely standard shounen to me, most certainly. So far, that is. Plain and generic, yes.

Anyway, here's the RAW for Juushin Enbu (Hero Tales):

*Flips through.*

Generic hero, generic unstoppable-god-mode-turn-on, generic mystic sword. Granted, for what it is, it's not bad, per se, but we've seen this so many times, I would have trusted Arakawa to come up with something more original, or at least uniquely stylized. Main character aside, though, character design isn't that standerdized...sort of.

Bat in a Blue sky was so perfect. Should've left that as the series and this as the one shot. Ah, well, best laid plans.

*still downloading*

Note that this series, Hero Tales, is not original by Arakawa Hiromu. It says on the picture that it is originally done by some Chinese guy named 黃金周 (Huang Jin Zhou).

*continues to wait for download to complete*

*reads* Hmm the story itself is rather stereotype, I agree... and since it's not Arakawa's original work, personally I am not expecting too much out of it, but I will still keep on reading happy.gif

I believe that even if Arakawa has some really original idea that she may want to insert into the story... (or even wants to change the ending), she may not be able to... since after all, it's not her own story to begin with... but then of cuz I have no idea~ Who knows~ I have never seen the original story before~ XD;;

As for this story itself, I will have to read more to decide whether or not it's worth buying....

(It seems the girl and the guy are siblings... she called him "Aniki"... and that guy reminds me of Ed, lol.)
