Hey there. Going to dump the first volume of an episodic, black-humor piece: Franken Fran.
>There is a Gothic-style mansion in a distant, rarely-visited part of Japan. There, the world's greatest surgeon, Naomitsu Madaraki, once lived. But he hasn't come home in ages.
>Instead, the professor's "daughter", Fran Madaraki, lives there with a large amount of her own ghoulish creations and her "younger sister" Veronica. She's a very unusual girl, what with the stitch patterns on her face and the giant bolts on either side of her head. Just as skilled at surgery as her father, and if you're willing to pay her price, she can do everything up to and including raising the dead.
>Fran believes that a life should be saved no matter the cost, and keep that in mind, since the results of her surgeries are rarely (if ever) pretty.
He also has an ongoing work called Meitantei Marnie that needs to be translated. I'll do an Untranslated Story Time for that some time later.
Is there really anyone on /a/ who hasn't read Franken Fran? If there are, best buckle up for one hell of a ride.
It's talked about way way less than when it was being scanlated by Hox.
OP's a gentleman of refined taste
Do you remember the first time you read Fatty x Roadkill?
Ah, good old Franken Fran.
I am sad that it ended, and that it only was released in German and not English.
I will never forgive Franken Fran. Never!
Can someone explain the ending to me?
What do you mean by explain?
I do actually, back when I though all this Japanese stuff was innocent Dragon Ball stuff. Those last few pages blew my mind and made me feel physically ill. Odd to think how my definition of weird and disgusting has changed.
I just wanted to read some adorable love shot
Seriously, what the fuck. I was totally expecting a happy end
The worst part is I can't tell who's yelling what.
But Fran is adorable, and full of love.
I still love how Fran can flip everything on its head in the last page.
Haha, holy shit. 10/10 ending.
She went to have his children too, that's how her new species mates.
She's still dressed and eating his intestines, I don't see how she can be pregnant, to be honest.
>i'm extremely interested in your case
>dat overjoyed smile
I forgot how much I love Fran. I'm sorry Fran.
She's like a Praying Mantis.
Fran used to be so good before it turned into Kamen Rider
Insects don't get pregnant, they lay eggs, as Fran pointed out herself. Unfortunate that they had incompatible reproductive systems. Star-crossed lovers, eh?
So she is a a moe edgy version of Black Jack?
What a flabby vag.
God, I would pay so many megabucks for a hardcover English release of Franken Fran.
please don't post pictures during story time anon
She's not edgy. She just has an extremely... unusual code of right and wrong.
Worst ending ever.
I want fran as my personal doctor
What do the bolts on her head really do, anyway?
enjoy fate worse than death
It's like Sonico's headphones.
Well they're obviously an homage to the Universal Studios version of Frankenstein's Monster, and there they're supposed to be the electrodes which brought him to life.
Of course they might be too big to be that so I'll just say they're cute.
I kind of agree with him, but it gave me some good laughs, so whatever.
There'll be a Kamen rider side story that it became too focused on, spawned several continuation.
Oh man, I completely forgot about that.
But it only ended up being ~5 chapters over the course of the whole story.
>I'm FUCKING INVINCIBLE
I had never realized it.
My sides are now in orbit
Because it ended
I wish Fran would operate on me. ;_;
The thing is the continuations are too direct and pay too much homage to the kamen rider storyline. Part of the Franken Fran fun was seeing returning characters in entirely new and 'clean slate' stories.
This is kind of sweet, in some sense.
Man, I really miss Franken Fran. It's a shame that the last chapter was lackluster.
To be fair, making a conclusion for something as episodic as this isn't easy.
Just a naming error.
Why not just continue for an eternity then?
That reminds me that we never even got to see the good doctor
>They're all adults.
There are some things Fran will never understand.
Oh, my bad. Been awhile since I've read this, I don't remember it page by page.
We did actually, in a chapter about sea monster IIRC
Patchwork girls are best girls.
You know it doesn't count until we see his eyes.
He never showed up in the present story. I was looking forward to a family reunion that never came.
I really like that bottom panel.
Her naivety is one of her cute points.
So Eva was into bestiality I see.
I don't think that's how the scientific method works, Fran
That he is.
She IS science, she can method it however she wants.
I always wondered, what's with Fran's talking boxes? They always jaggy.
I can't believe she left the breasts in the wrong place. How lazy of her.
Maybe she has a gravelly crone voice.
Jesus christ finally a Franken Fran thread.
Franken Fran is my overall favorite manga.
So /a/, would you take Fran to the ball?
Why does she have bubbles over her head all the time?
The tiny bubbles lead to the larger ones anon.
>that puppy in the corner
She had a normal voice in the Drama CD though.
I love how Fran always has the best advice for conventional treatment but nobody ever wants to take it.
People can be so picky about what they eat.
I'd be terrified that she'd misinterpret a and offhand remark and turn me into agonizing living wallpaper or something
But that's half the fun!
More than that, I'd marry her and have her do unspeakable things to me.
She's kinda air headed if that helps.
Oh god this is gross.
Eating people is the worst
Way to ruin the party, Fran
Don't knock it till you try it.
Everyone keeps asking her to, she didn't seem that intent on spoiling the fun for everyone.
No like for real. It disturbes me greatly
I want to hold hands with Fran.
That just means you're sane.
>connecting nerves with chopsticks
Oh Fran. Your highly implausible feats of medicine never cease to amuse me.
I didn't think there was anyone in this world with more depraved sensibilities than Fran herself, but you've proved me wrong.
All of them. She could give me extra arms and hands to hold all of them at once, or I could take turns holding each set for like five minutes at a time. Whatever fits more conveniently into her schedule.
Jesus christ anon. This is a blue board.
>I haven't adjusted your muscle control yet
Goddamn it Fran, if you could just stop stuffing your face for five minutes
her voice is supposed to sound slightly electrified
Am I missing something?
How did she kill herself?
She's wind up making you a girlfriend that's just a massive spindle of curvy arms and possessed of nothing but the desire to hold your everything in her many delicate by iron-strong grips forever.
Her father killed her, Fran was talking about the father's social suicide via dead daughter
She would maximize the holding ratio by giving your body much more surface area for your qtgf to hold.
That's not very nice.
This chapter is one of my favorites.
>walk into a murder
> 'Eh, whatever sorry for interrupting'
Why is Fran such olev?
She tends to assume the best of people.
>you will never have a blowjob machine
>Miss Thing T. Thing, at your service!
So much One Page Thread material, so little time.
An attitude like that could get you int rouble.
With that much space, you'd only be able to get about half in safely without it being fatal.
Fran sure is a fatty
A perfect miniature moeblob
This kid's got issues.
>spilling fran's tea
I FORGOT HOW MAD THIS KID MADE ME.
Literally. There doesn't look like there's any room for bones.
The moral of the story is you shouldn't murder people.
Reminder that this is getting an anime this summer for those that missed the announcement
Where does she get the parts for that beauty?
That's the right sound to make, all right.
From the looks of it I'd have to say the chick with the Stem Cell disorder.
I hope there are a lot of original stories instead of just straight adaptations.
What kind of self-respectingmad doctor doesn't keep a meat locker full of assorted human and nonhuman body parts fully stocked at all times?
No, those come up later iirc. Was that just the female officer or was it the parts, too?
It isn't nice to lie.
She usually says that she's running low on parts.
Screw you, I just looked it up only to be heavily disappointed.
Would download and masturbate too every week and show on Wednesday movie night.
Remember this movie.
I want to be a surgeon now.
I don't remember this...
Pierce was pretty funny to watch.
Oh god, how terrifying would that be?
Getting your dick cut off is one thing, but watching it happen? That's just adding salt on the wound
Kill la Kill?
I just want to hug her.
its like that christmas story with the couple selling their stuff to get the other a gift wich ended being useless because of the things they sold
Franken Fran was so good, do you think if we all bought the manga like we did Watamote that it could of still been published for a bit longer? Or was that not the issue, I forget.
I sold my house to buy you a mustache comb! But I sold my mustache to buy you a vacuum!
I want to cum inside Fran.
i undesrtand most of the aestetic and physical transformation, but what in the love of god is that thing for
She wanted to be Danny Devito.
In a land of bizarro fucks it gets increasingly harder to stand out from one another. Dude sure caught your attention though, didn't he? That's why he's smiling.
Guillotine Gorilla near the top edge.
That's a female uniform.
wah wah wah
The point remains it caught your attention, which was the whole idea behind such a transformation.
Hey is that an "anime" girl monstrosity I see there
Why is Okita such a QT
He and Fran should just fug already
Human body or spiny cat dick?
It's been so long since I read this, was it explained how he got like that in the first place because I seriously don't remember
Most things were never explained
I love Fran
We all do.
I do. I knew body horror was the order of the day, but I wasn't expecting it to get so dark.
She does her best, even if her best isn't exactly what she intends.
Goodnight, thanks for the dump. Maybe I'll reread this soon for Fran's sake.
Was pretty chpper actually if i remember right. Maybe it represents how excited/happy she is about everything? Like not a single line she ever says is anything less than full of happiness?
As if any other girl could compare to the FFrankenbooty.
Wah! What are we going to do on the operating table Fran?
Keep those kinds of lewd thoughts to yourself, this is a blue board.
I'd also snuggle her and stroke her hair.
You're just asking for a ban.
But so would I.
Who is the best character and why is it Gavrill?
i cant pick one
That is the most fucked up family ever
i wonder what frans eggs taste like
I don't really understand what happened.
>Reporter goes into the house of the producers of the porn
>Find gross ass shit
>Now she has a tape where I think Fran sent her goons to maul him (maybe turned one of the victims into a monster?)
>Fran bein' moe
I remember there's a drama CD of Fran with Chihara Minori as Veronica
I wonder if there's translation
Technically speaking Veronica is the most perfect creation isn't she? She can take care of herself but unlike Gavrill, could did it with clinically accurate cuts so she might be able to take Fran's role if she knew what she's doing.
i want to smell fran
You just saw the only time Fran got mad at a person or did something with malice.
She went to another person on one of the videos and offered a free operation. Fran did nothing but what the girl asked and a bloodbath later commenced when she got to the video makers.
Well of course, it's over and everyone's read it.
Is she that naive? So cute [heart]
