Verdant Lord


Alt Names: alt 緑の王alt 緑の王 VERDANT LORDalt 녹색의 왕alt Midori no Oualt Midori no Ou: VERDANT LORD
Author: TAKASHIGE Hiroshi
Artist: SOGA Atsushi
Genres: Adventure AdventureFantasy FantasyMecha MechaMystery MysterySci-fi Sci-fiSeinen Seinen
Type: Manga (Japanese)
Status: Complete
Description: Set in the near future where Mother Nature has decided to fight back against all of the human encroachment.

It has your standard apocalyptic scenario, but we're right in the middle of the apocalypse actually happening, rather than the aftermath. Vines and foliage entangle cities, as large wooden mech-like creatures called Arethusa (named after one of the mythical Greek Hesperides that tended the gardens in a remote corner of the world) rampage through cities.

Our main character is Souma Shin, a punk kid out of Japan. We start off with him coming to visit his twin (?) brother Ken. All hell breaks loose as Shin finds a group of small kids being used for military purposes, and tries to save them in the confusion created by an Arethusa invading the compound.

Although I was tempted to root for the plants . . . 

 

Kind of a lot of development in volume 9. Assume that's from the host magazine going under, as explained in chapter 60.5. Also some scientific loose ends, but what do you expect with a rapid wind-down.

If you look at page 3 of 60.5, then you'll see why the author ended it this way and whether there will be a sequel

That was back in 2009....the likelihood of a squeal at this point is slim....

Hmm, that's a shame. Was hoping for a proper epilogue.

Oh well.

That last "Chapter" was worth it, just for that panel with Dina and "Shin-chan" LOL!

thumbs up for those who use spoiler tags

Well, that was a decent explanation chapter and close out. Shame we couldn't see the full story realized. Thanks for all your hard work, guys, I enjoyed reading this thanks to you.
The moral of the story is that dandelions are the true conquerors of space. Subjugate yourself to them or see your garden slowly be filled with weed.

Coulnd't you put the END tag on the chapter before? I waited all this time for an afterword.

Hmm. My Theory:

They (the army) lied about the position of the bomb...?

Soo.... its over now?

My only reaction after reading the latest chapter was. "WAT!?". Seriously i need to cool down a bit and re-read it again because some things were confusing, or if someone is kind enough to explain.
