I don't see how that's possible when we could actually see Amagumo.
If we find another translator (and I seriously doubt we will) you can contact him and make the suggestion. Now this ship has sailed and it would be foolish to change the name every chapter.


Thanks for the new chapter Goral! Don't be so pessimistic about finding a translator, there's always maniacs like us out there with strange hobbies, they might just take a while to show up.

Btw, sorry again for this chapters bad cleaning as well, I did this in a very short time and bla bla blah ;) the reason I kept the gray in one of the pages was that the raw was hopelessly bled through, so in order to save the art I had to sacrifice something... I should have taken a bit more care though.

It's probably what I was asking about before. Desert punk and rain spider are pretty ok names plus they're simple english words which make them easier to remember. This might be a more faithful translation but i'm pretty sure no one was complaining about the english names before.

She's talking about Amagumo obviously and I'm baffled that you don't even know his name. He's one of the most discernable characters in DP (he's even on one of the covers). I recommend you read the chapter again.

Kosuna is indeed badass now, but who is she talking about capturing there? I assume the guy with the lethal weapon under his coat?

Thanks for the update, this has become my favorite manga at the moment :X

Such an ugly MC, inside and outside.But it's a good read because of that. Kosuna seems to have taken over the MC flag though.

Didn't like how he used that shotgun to bash helmets more than actually pulling the trigger, despite his evil attitude. Now it's gone and forgotten, RIP father's shotgun....

I'll never understand people who look at art when choosing manga while ignoring the plot and characters. Kaiji is one of the best manga there are and art is irrelevant. Detective Conan is one of the best shounen manga (and THE best detective manga) and art is irrelevant. Dorohedoro has very unique art (sometimes it's hard to tell what's in a frame) but it has great plot and characters.

As for Desert Punk, it has the best facial expressions out of all manga I know (since they are real expressions) and the art is great overall. There are no big eyed chicks here though if that's what you mean by good art.

Angel Densetsu, just saying.

The war really changed things. Originally, Kanta only took Kosuna under his wing cuz he believed she'd grow up to look like Junko ;)

 

...and she wound up looking like Kanta :P

awww, kosuna, my sweet child, went and grew up... she's so badass now...

We knew from the start that she was bluffing and the picture she showed to Kanta wasn't her mother's. Still, at page 22 she doesn't look that flat, Kanta wouldn't hesitate to do her.

don't be bitter just because more people would rather read a series you don't like than read something you're scanlating. maybe for a seinen manga about guns and lawlessness, arms peddler is mild, and almost shounen in its plot direction. but maybe some people like that, and you just can't find it in yourself to look outside of your own ass.

Says Arms Peddler scanlator, lol.

 

I'm not saying that DP is great because I'm scanlating it. I'm saying it's great because it's a fact. My opinion about DP is one of the first here (I'm the 5th person to write about it here) and it was at least one and a half year before I even started working on this series.

Arms Peddler is just stupid and it's a waste of time. Graphics alone won't change it (not to mention that art isn't that great either, especially for a seinen).

 

Also, it's Desert Punk corner so it's a given there will be DP fans here and Desert Punk praising. It's actually amusing that you've come here only to cry about it :D. It only shows that you're not DP target audience. If you want me to discuss Arms Peddler with you I can but let's not do it here. I could make a very long list of reasons why the author of AP treats his readers like idiots (or you could read my posts on Animesuki) just not here.

So now she grew up and took on a different name for herself. No big tities though. Can't help but think that with her being the main character the manga will end with the death of sunabozu, with a feel similar to the end of death note.

I'm glad I've rushed with typesetting DP chapters because as it turns out I have even less free time than anticipated. I'll finish volume 13 obviously but it might take a while. Unfortunately we don't have a translator and it looks like we won't have one. So spread the word, recommend this manga and maybe some other group will take over now that this manga has gained so many followers. When I've started working on this series (2 years ago, volumes 6+ are my work when it comes to typesetting/cleaning) it was a fraction of that and it's the only thing (short of paying a translator) that can get us further translation.

Well, Arms Peddler is a watered down Berserk (and Berserk is nothing more than a shadow of what it was before Miura grew senile) Art alone is the only good thing it has, but its pretty good art mind you.

 

There are many mangakas with good drawing skills but only a few (that I know of) who can also write a decent plot. Desert Punk has the whole package.

Arms Peddler has maybe better art overall (not IMO though) but there the plot and characters are retarded and it shouldn't be released in seinen magazine. You can find my opinion about it on Animesuki (the discussion is long though). Out of curiosity I've checked more recent chapter and it's even more stupid than it was. Complete waste of time and I congratulate everyone who wastes time on that.

If I had to be honest its probably the art, I almost dropped it at first because of it. Particularly in the beginning its not all that great in certain places, which can be a barrier to people continuing.     Would be my guess, since the story is pretty fun.

You kidding me? The art in this is great. The costumes, guns and fight scenes are all top class, as well as the character designs and expressiveness. It's on a whole other level when compared to the bland, trite moeshit so prevalent in the medium nowadays.

Thanks for the chapters. It's amazing how interesting this manga is. Why aren't there over 9000 followers?

The amount did rise up though - after I've started releasing chapters agai (so about 2 weeks ago) it went up from 1397 to 1496 so there is progress (there was 1407 for a while, I wonder why someone unfollowed it).

Oh man I've made some silly cleaning mistakes in these chapters, sorry about that! (also, the quality was really shitty, but hey, it's my job as a cleaner to resolve that without making silly mistakes.

No one noticed and it's still much better than if I was doing all the cleaning :). But if you want you can touch up some of the pages, I'll update this chapter then (but probably once whole volume is ready).

Looks like Kosuna grew up to become pretty awesome.

 

She now has the same look in her eye that Kanta has.
