I read the manga before watching the anime. Tried getting into the new sequel, but without proper translators, its pointless to continue reading. I'm probably going to wait for the another season of the anime, but the anime seem to divert from the manga...

I'll repost this here:

I am also reading the manga side by side. Some of the differences are striking.

In visual design, of course, but I'm used to that. But also in narrative choices. The 5 year old Shogun, for example, the manga makes one mention of his suggestion of merchants holding fist fights to settle disputes to be a child like suggestion, and then goes on to suggest how abandoning all out war in favor of a contained tournament is a better alternative, and something adults set in their ways could never think of.

Meanwhile, the anime calls his suggestion childISH, and stresses several times that it's a ridiculous idea, but that the Shogun has absolute authority.

Maybe they figured a westernized audience wouldn't be able to identify with the reverence Japan has for its history. Or maybe the translators themselves inserted their own biases.

Personally, I prefer the non westernized version.

So do you think the lesson of [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Ohma using technique over borrowed power was somewhat undermined by the fact if he didn't borrow power, he never would have worn down his opponent enough to drop his amp?

The Medicine Man was interesting, wonder why they cut him from the anime?

Hokuto No Gun is doing the sequel, so it should be good.


They're the ones who did Fist of the Blue Sky, and are in the process of retranslating the Otokojuko's.

Lot of characters and details the anime cut out. The beach fan services were actually really good for fleshing out the characters.

Ohma's time in the Tokita zone should at least become an special, it's simply too important to cut completely.

It's hard to see Agito Kanoh having beaten the Kure Clan, what with their super human "removal" abilities. Yeah, Agito tiers up every match, but going by his fight with the "King of Combat" and the fact he said he reached a new level from the fight, that bar was pretty low, compared to how overwhelming Raian seemed.

Man, the Gaolong fight really made Fang look like a monster. All those punches and not even a little fracture. Feeling like he could take Raian now, if they fought.

You've gotta be kidding me. Agito took everything Gaolang threw at him, and finished him off decisively. He in no way looked "frail".

Finished up the series, moving on the Omega. I like the ending, shades of [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Joe Yubikii. He burned out, pure white.

I see 90 chapters are available from Hokuto No Gun, the same group who did Ashura's scans. I assume Omega is still ongoing?

Up to the part before Ryuki faces justice.


Was thinking, Ashura ended up [SPOILER - highlight to read]: swerving expectations by having the bearded god win it all. So wouldn't it he appropriate, not to mention awesome, if last series clown became this series savior? Rhito's learning from the best, he just may become the shadow Shirahama Kenichi.

Annnd, completely caught up with the Hokuto No Gun scans.



I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, I marked out for [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Ohma's return..


On the other, I have to wonder if Yabako Sandrovich is making it up as he goes. Did he always plan this, or is it a result of fan pressures, or work pressures?


He clearly had an overall conspiracy set in place, but I have the feeling he was forced to drop it, and never believed there would be a sequel series. Kengan Ashura seemee like a definitive ending.

And the Omega plot reveal is incredibly convoluted.
