HOLY SHIT THIS IS THE BEST SHOUNEN EVER
seriously this has gotta rank up there with jojo and bastard!.
NOTHING ranks up with JOJO
Jojo is overrated anyway. Sure its good but still way too much hype
After Kamina died I was pretty sure this was gonna suck ass. The whole beast arc that followed was Fucking awesome. The scanlations for this series are really fucking behind though they're at like vol 7 out of 40
replace the puppets with mecha and you have gurren lagann.
it was pretty good but what was up with the wierd medical condition that they created? Its funny how I can accep giant puppets fighting to the death but I can't accept the idea that the main character chokes unless someone laughs around him
I must now read this.
OHO. 57 translated chapters for my pleasure.
it makes for good comic relief in the start, I thought hilarious, and it makes his whole "proposing" to shirogane in the abyss alot more impacting
It's one of the few shonen that get better with time, it's start to get really epic with the Sahara arc. Honestly I like it more than Jojo, it would be nice if a fast group took it as project since there's 40 volumes.
As the story develops, the disease is revealed to be an integral part of the entire story.
That medical condition will be explained later in the manga, it's an important plot point.
any place to get all the raws?
Is anyone currently releaseing chapters for it?
alittle googleing brought this up
Now all we need is a moonspeaker, and an editor
If you guys keep on going like this, I'm gonna end up giving it a read, and then getting (probably) fucking hooked, and then I'll have to quit my job to follow the scanlations I do on /a/.
This series will never be completely scanlated
Read it, it's awesome.
the big question is it complete or how many chapter are there out now
That's what /a/ said for Vinland Saga and look at where that got me, dammit.
I swear that I saw hentai of the kid and Shirogane.
complete, just not completely translated
doujins or artwork?
how many chapters total?
how many chapters is a volume? its got 43 volumes
It went upto around vol 40 I don't exactly remember.
This thing is VERY LONG and it gets pretty awesome later on. I read all of them already, so let's spoil...
so about 350 chapters good luck
For a shonen, it ranks up there with Jojo in gore, and Berserk in MOTHER FUCKING EPIC, and BAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW in One Piece flashbacks.
Sure, the art is a little sketchy, but it captures the detail great. And this is clearly one shonen which its STORY is very well-thought. Little details that makes you LOL in the beginning, like the ZONAPHA/Masaru's l33tness/etc comes across as important hints.
page excerpt for example
- Narumi is not dead in vol 3 ofcourse, he was rescued by Gii, Shirogane's master.
- Narumi becomes one of Shirogane, ones who fight dolls. Their aim is to illiminate Phongscene (damit don't know how to spell her name): the master doll.
All other Shirogane died in the process but ~vol 19, narumi successfully destroy the doll. However it turns out that the master doll is fake.
Shirogane's real name is Elenol. She has the philosopher stone (or whatever its called) inside her body since birth. Her mother and the real master doll died protecting her.
Elenol is around 90 years old. Shirogane are warior who drank Aquavete, the water which cures all disease, extend your life, and heal the wounds.
Masaru is a cloned of one of the creator. The story began with 2 doll master creators. They are brothers, however they fall in love to the same woman: Phongscene.
I think its something like 9 chapters a volume for this manga so. 9 x 43 = 387 chpaters
I don't have the raws with me atm ( I bought the tankous )
But I recall vol... 10, 16 being some of the greater starters for Karakuri. The first flashback as to how the first Shiroganes were born, Narumi's descent into darkness, and the Sahara Desert arc were fuck win.
I understood maybe 3 of those spoilers, the first one made me smile though, as they're my favorite character so far
Her name is Francine.
You forgot to add.
Masaru becomes GAR.
and now I want to read the rest
Does it have a happy end, a mediorce end, or a nice boat end?
Spoiler on real doll master.
The real master doll, in the flashback turns out to be just a doll who has no understanding of how people live their life, with a distorted view of humans, until she lived among them, to learn how humans... babies have to endure years of growth and hardship to grow up, learning the value of life and in her final moments, she smiled when baby Eleanor smiled to her.
God, I BAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW-ed. ;_;
And it's not even a true good end, as the lives that survived get fucked later as well.
Narumi lost both of his arms and legs, they are later replaced by the dolls of his fallen comrades. It was fucking awesome.
Gii died later on, he is somewhat a father figure to Elenol. The one Gii called 'Mother' is actually Elenol's mother.
Masaru gets really cool later on. Fighting against the true master mind and such. Masaru will learn to use 3 weapons: the puppet doll (just like Elenol's), A katana (an ancient sword style), and the dissemble (ability to take anything apart in a split second.)
There will be a lot girls later on. They are all either falling for Masaru.
yes, forgot to mentioned. After vol 3 Narumi lost his memory of the time when he was in Japan. He can't remember Elenol or Masaru. His new aim is actually to kill Elenol around vol 30.
The fight gets really huge later on. The final fight ends up Masaru fighting with his 'original' self on a space station.
So fucking confused right now, How about instead of spoiling it you translate some scripts so we nonmoonspeakers can come to grasp the situation
There were sacrifices, many deaths along the way, but in the end...
They were smiling. ;_;
Yes, MAJOR characters actually die.
These plot points spread across 40 volumes, piece by piece, slowly unraveling a huge puzzle of a story.
Just translating a few scripts here and there won't help. Flashback arcs, which are pivotal to the story here are long.
I meant translate the damn manga instead of spoiling it
I don't know about the other anon, but I read chinese for my Karakuri dose.
And I can't translate with my physical copies back home, even if I'm not busy as hell with my life right now.
woohoo 40+ post and not a single image DEEP CONVERSATION ID DEEP
Sadly we'd never see an anime for this, probably. Animating it would be fuck hard, with all the strings, puppet, character movement, not to mention the length, gore, nudity, etc.
Fujita is known to be like Araki in wanting to retain the 'feeling' of the manga. They won't allow an animation if it's not up to the manga's portrayal.
Here's the doujin.
Now I can fap before I go to work.
bump for translation
Awesome thread is awesome.
Thanks for the megaupload too.
Why is this all the way back on like page 4.
Needs more love for Karakuri Circus.
Oh god this will take forever to dl from megaupload but worth it.
I just found out there's a Guidebook for this, and I'm going to order it. I hope it's worth it.
Since we found the raws on megaupload, I had an idea--does anyone want to start at like, 43, while others start at 1, and download them all while putting them on sendspace? It'd take like 43 different people (or just a few over a few hours/proxies/premiums) but then we'd probably get it to each other faster.
Anyone dling? I'm up to vol. 4 so far.
Same. We must have started at the same time, I just finished volume 3.
Also, this is shit is gay.
NEEDS MORE TRANSLATIONS AND LESS SPOILERS
gay as in Hard Gay or gay as in sucks like a vacuum cleaner?
the second one, talking about that specific event
Keep reading, you're in for a surprise.
Not really worth it. I bought it earlier, its a huge recap of the whole story. The guide book is released just before the final show down in the story.
come on someone has to be fucking translating this its awesome why the fuck are there millions translating crap like bleach and noone cares about this geeks fucking suck
Reading this now because of this thread.
Really? Does it have character bios and such? I always love guidebooks that have big sections on characters, abilities, etc. etc.
every girl is gay for shirogane
The joker you saw between the arc acting as a Narator is actually not a random charecter for joke. He called himself Foo, he is also known as Tomus Edison, Istine etc. all the important invetor in history.
This story do have crazy plot.
yeah, it does have bios of pretty much all the chars
OP here: Wow I make one of these threads every week, this is the first time its actually caught on with you fags. There may be hope for you people yet
You're probably just getting the older /a/ crowd, because most other /a/ fags are in school right now.
Well, ordered it anyway. I can't really afford to buy the whole manga now, but at least this way I bought something for the series that I'm downloading.
>everyone is gay for shirogane, shota for masaru and gar for Narumi
Whenever I thought of this manga, I would always wonder why there were no threads on /a/ about it... for some reason the idea just seemed right. Well now I know, now there are threads.
are there moar chaps then the ones on lurk?
there's a megaupload of all the raw volumes here
thanks :( but I dont speak moonspeak
Just scan through it and all. You don't need to know moonspeak to get the basic gist. Not that I'm gonna read the RAWs or anything though.
Just gotta wait.
maybe your right but i just dont like missing the story :p
