Yeah but theres still chance that he might draw an ending or finishing arc for it some time later since it ended too abruptly and it didnt actually gotten one... he may have burned down but maybe some time later he can light himself up again and reborn like phoenix (or so I hope...) while drawing it

The author say in his webside that he will never write vector ball again

Yeah that was a message that the magazine issued, but they did it on their own.

 

Raiku himself made a blog saying that he is dropping it, he feels burned down and has no idea what to do with it, he is just not feeling it, he says that forcing himself to keep working on it wont help anyone.

Tried looking at latest chap raws. Technically it is "Season 1" that has ended so maybe theres still chance to revive?

Seems like ch 10 is missing.

Personally, while Vector Ball does have its share of flaws, the one thing I won't criticise are the battles.

 

Having followed the raw, without giving away major spoilers, I can say that Kometaki and Vector's 3D printing ability is incredibly versatile and fun. Aside from being a Kiyomaro-esque tactician, they also play the role of alchemist/blacksmith who crafts interesting tools, weapons and armour to make up for a disadvantage in raw firepower.

 

And this especially shines in team battles. Seeing them with a disposal of materials like metal, rubber, wood, plastic, etc. and using them in different and sometimes absurd mixes is neat.

Not to mention, I like that they have a weakness: long processing times, which then requires their teammates to defend them in order to compensate.

 

It's a shame that Raiku got burnt out. I do hope he recovers, and if possible, for Vector's ability to appear again in a future work. It's far too neat to just go to waste.

And nothing of value was lost. I'm glad Raiku was able to realize that this wasn't really going anywhere and pulled out before it took up too much of his time.

Ended. Supposedly Makoto ended manga in the middle of latest arc.

Aww balls, this is interesting unique manga mmm...

Ended. Supposedly Makoto ended manga in the middle of latest arc.

Dammit! you lie! i refuse to believe this.

 

Shit it is true...

 

Anyway, why the jump all the way to chap 16?

Man i fucking love the monster design this series has, another great one by Raiku sensei.

This Author really has this distinct taste of humour... which i found amusing! :D

 

And Oh God, what a cliff hanger!

 

I, on the other hand, find this author's humor is extraordinarily juvenile and quite frequently shit (often literally so).

 

On the other other hand, it seems to work for him. I don't know whether it's a matter of contrasts and juxtapositions, or whether his humor is just so childishly crude that I let my guard down, or whether it's just in spite of all this, but I find what I've read of his series to generally be quite endearing somehow, in a strange and, much as you say, 'distinct' way.

 

...The humour still makes me cringe, though.

Thanks for the translation, I love Raiku's series !

It's so basic but so good at the same time, I like this kind of power.

Hahahaha, of all shounen powers, the one in this fight was particularly amusing. Lovely use of basic mechanics!

Ahahaha, I have no idea what's happening in this manga, but it's delightfully weird. So typical of this author <3...

Raiku series? Instant follow ~

I loved Gash and Doubutsu but this is really lame so far. It's like the editors just got fed up and went "hurry up and make a high school battle manga already!"

Why did I just start reading this now, this is gold mmm...~!

 

Btw is Chimi supposed to be a parody of Chinmi from Tekken Chinmi mmm...~?
Since Chinmi use some kind of Monkey Kung Fu at some point of the story mmm...

This ran in a weekly magazine, it's understandable why it isn't as detailed as Doubutsu no Kuni which was in a monthly magazine.

 

Big thanks for anons who managed to scan, translate, clean, and typeset this volume in 3 days!

Its still running mate
