Good to see you guys still going strong after all these years

Post by Sheo Darren on Sun 13 May 2012 - 7:14

The prodigal son was driven this way by his personal life's darkness and despair, so he decided to check on you guys briefly.

I'm honestly happy to see you guys are still having fun long after the nonexistent second season of GSG and all that. You guys are terrific.

I don't know if you guys already know about this, but if not- here's a little present from me:

Move aside, Pino, Giuseppe, et al. There's a real Gunslinger Boy now XD

It's based on a manga: http://www.mangahere.com/manga/jormungand/ Think of it as Black Lagoon meets Gunslinger Girl sans cyborgs.

If you haven't heard of it, I hope you like it. If you have seen it, good for you ^^

Ciao for now. Credens Justitiam.

We're not truly having fun, Sheo, as long as you aren't regularly here. Don't be a stranger, man - we're here for you to talk to, be it during good times or bad. Chin up, buddy - everything will turn out all right in the end, I'm sure of it.

Damn, if that song isn't catchy. I'm going to have to delve into this Jormungand stuff; it's about time we got a kickass male protagonist in this estrogen-heavy world.

Hi Sheo, good to see you again.

I've been watching the anime verison of Jormungand, though given how little discussion there's been on it in the Spring 2012 Anime discussion thread I don't think a lot of other people here have. Interestingly enough prior to episode 5 I was of the opinion that the show tended to be better when the amount of shooting the protagonists did was kept to a minimum. Laughing

Also regarding Black Lagoon and Jormungand, I gather they're published in the same magazine. Apparently there's even a little crossover comic which features young Koko conning Revy into buying a bunch of crap. Laughing There are scans of it online although they aren't translated.

I think that's a (somewhat) younger Lehm standing next to young Koko in the second page...

Thanks, Nacht, you're as kind as always. I've been painfully busy nowadays, since my parents got the idea to make me study for a second college degree- while I am already working a rather stressful 7-to-4 job. I simply can't do both of them at the same time. But like you said, I guess I just have to keep my chin up.

Yes, Mami Kawada songs are awesome. And yes, Jormugand is cool. I read the first volume. I'd pay good money to see Jonah fight Pino Very Happy

It's great to see you again, Piero. I hope your RPs and stories are flourishing.

And, yes, I love how the Jormugand characters do not have to shoot their way through every mess Koko gets them into. Especially towards the end of the first volume, where they make a deal with the people surrounding them to let them through- by throwing their rivals to them Very Happy

Oh lol Koko swindled Revi? If that is canonical, I can use that timeline. Sankyuu, Piero! ^^
