Description: Fourteen-year-old Kouichi Hayase’s life has always been a mediocre one, if not dismal. However, those days of being bullied by classmates and escaping to a fantasy of being a hero are put to an end when a certain “accident” bestows on him a girl and a gigantic humanoid robot called “LINEBARREL”. The extraordinary power that Kouichi obtains puts him and everything around him on a sudden rollercoaster ride of battles, intrigues and friendship! During the course of his adventure, the boy starts to learn what life has to offer; he meets new friends, bids farewell to the old ones, but most of all he now has considerable responsibilities and is forced to confront the world around him.

I really want to get into this, but I can't fucking tell left from right. I mean, it's cool that you want to do giant robot battles, but damn, find a way to make each of them easily identifiable first. A random close up of two armor plates and a flange doesn't help when all the robots look more or less the same.

For some reason, I just read the ending.

 

To be honest, I'm really surprised it actually ended like this.

This was playing in my mind while reading the ending, that brat became a badass after all. :D

I still don't get what's going on in the recent chapters sometimes. All I know is the mechs are cool.

You ever just own a guy using techniques you stole from robot Lincoln?

Damn. I forgot how weird this series can be.

 

Awesome action though.

Darn. That's some Inception stuff going around. Giant preggo bot inside a giant preggo bot. Yuck.

Giant pregnant robot

 

And now giant babies switching sides to the good guys and doing the Gunbuster pose.

At this point I can come out of my hole and admit it - completely messed up in the head and whatever, but Miu was my guilty pleasure.

Also thanks to whoever picked up the series again, I saw the raws some time ago and I'm very interested in what will be said by who in the ending.

Impressed with the more recent developments.

 

I definitely can't say it's good. But as a mecha series, this is really something else.

read this whole thing in 2 days (well whats posted), pleasantly surprised. nice plot twists, battles, things to munch on. I recommend for people who want a good fast read.

I don't remember a single thing.

Gotta sit down and ask myself if I want to embark on this journey (from the very beginning) once again.

lame so childhood freind switch after time skip to his best freind why didnt do it from the start at least we didnt have the drama between the 3 childhood  friends

uwow look robots fighting :0

Whoa, it lives!

Shh! Don't jinx it!

Whoa, it lives!

Seems like they did. Which is silly because there was only like 20 chapters to go for the entire series.

yep they drop it,  because there's no one to work on it. but at least they manage to translate the script. just hoping there would be someone to put the script to the last two volume and release so we know the ending

 

the raw for last 2 volume is available somewhere already

so did the translators for this abandon it? i hope not.

holy fucking shit new chapters

I fucked up on chapter 107 and forgot to put the last page, can you not upload it as I upload the correct file?

Goddamn, Folie a Deux is chapter 108, chapter 107 Supersonic Reminiscence, the second chapter 107 with the title Folie a Deux is the correct chapter 107, sorry for the fuck up

I think this manga is probably good...but sometimes I can't actually tell.

After the time-skip things got even more hard to follow, and the chapter lengths have taken a SERIOUS toll, from the early 40~ish pages to 23-25 each time.

 

However, they've covered topics that I thought would only be left as dropped plot-points - Kujoh's mental instability, the history of the twins and the Decieve, and a lot of other things. Still, overall, the time-skip leaves a lot to be desired narrative-wise, introducing way too many questions and answering none of them, with so many plot points left hanging after soooo many chapters.

For example, stuff like

Spoiler
God this is frustrating. If anyone at all, and I mean anyone, knows an answer to the things I listed as "Plot-holes" then PLEASE, CORRECT ME. Not understanding this stuff is murdering me on the inside.

 

But seriously, I think this manga is at a uniquely ridiculous point where if it ties together all of it's plot threads, it will be fantastic, but if it continues at the current pace it will just be pretty garbage that wasted its potential. I'm hoping for the best.
