Lunar New Year Snippets from Zero-Sum Issue 03/11


Snips, Snips and More Snips from Zero-Sum March Edition!!!

March Cover Spotlight Goes To “Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist
Photobucket

What’s in store, what’s in store?! Tons of snips. I got a little carried away during a recent short break and tried to squeeze in a snip of nearly every manga title…nearly but not all, mostly those that gotten hold of my short attention span as I quickly ran the mag thru the scanner. I also just realized I’d forgotten to make a customary ‘Lunar New Year’ post. It isn’t too late to pop a little greeting in here as the lunar festival will not end until Feb-17th which will be the 15th day of the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

So, I would like to take this opportunity to wish every one who drops by tBPII a “Happy Lunar New Year of the Rabbit“. Xin Nian Kuai Le. 新年快乐! 幸せな正月! 행복 음력 설날!

Enjoy this humongous picspam!

I love this cover. Been a while since we see Teito with the Ghosts.

I really like how Fia Kreuz stay true to protecting the last heir of Raggs, keeping his promise to Tiashe’s father.  The bittersweet interactions between Fia and Tiashe are so sad. The appearance of the other 7-Ghosts later in this chapter is what I’ve been wanting to see for a long time. It means that the Ghosts knew about Tiashe from the very beginning. I’m actually interested in knowing why Vertrag hasn’t yet reincarnated. Is it because Fia Kreuz is the last from the House of Raggs and there isn’t anyone else from the house except for Teito who is Raggs royalty. I reckon the line died when Fia was murdered.

This last panel pretty much tells you what Amatsuki has been building up to from the very first chapter.

::Karneval::
Chapter 41 – Not a lot going on in this chapter. It’s mostly on Gareki discovering how useless he really is when facing danger. The chapter cover is nice though. Karoku and Yogi look like long lost bros.

  1. You might be thinking Chronos Deep has suddenly turn ‘Junjou Romantica’ but fret not, it hasn’t. <- Nice! *thumbs up*😀
    Such a pity that some of these series haven't been scanlated yet. T^T They look really good and I'd love to read them. Guess I have to wait a bit longer or improve my Japanese.🙂
    Thank you for the snippets!

  2. Hello Ayu! Thanks for the preview! So Nanao got into trouble again? I’m really curious about his back stories, especially the relationship with his teacher and his guardian.

    Thanks a bunch!🙂

  4. Thank you so much, Ayu! And thank you for Asuka and GFantasy Petit too! Yakumo looks yummy on that cover :3

    And yay for new Zero Sum issue! I’ve always liked Fea Kreuz. More like… not “liked”, but… respected him? Was amazed by him? He’s done A LOT for Teito to survive. He’s a truly kind person. I’ve always thought before it was a pity they didn’t show many flashbacks with him, but now I’m satisfied. I love it how 07-Ghost is filled with so many outstanding characters, some of them are just genuinely kind, something you don’t come across much even in anime/manga, I think.

    About, Amatsuki. I’ve seen the previous two chapters only in Chinese (and have skipped around 5-7 chapters). Would you mind telling in a coupel of sentences what exactly is going on there? Has Kon regained his memory? And if I got it right, that’s a machine in that picture playing the song “Tooryanse”? Could you please give a SUPER brief summary of what’s going on? I’m just very very very curious this time.
    And that cover with Bonten looks really nice.

    Dolls, I love it how they’re still telling that story, but honestly I wish they’d show the present Shouta! X3 But Dolls has always been intriguing, so I don’t complain.

    And btw, I’ve FINALLY decided to subscribe! Only for 6 months, because I have no idea where I’ll in 6 months’ time, so I mgiht renew my subsciption later. I’ve chosen Zero Sum, Zero Sum Ward, and… and… man, I don’t know what other mag to choose! I’m still debating between Avarus, Lala (only for Natsume Yuujinchou furoku really… not much interested in other series it offers), Craft, Feel Young (the last two aren’t offered for sub at CdJapan :S).

    Which one would you choose? I’m gonna sub to mags during this weekend after I get my salary, so I can’t wait! The only drawback is that I’ve chosen SAL shipping, so it might take a while to arrive… but still, I’ll get it, so I’m super happy about it xD

      • @leeNoriega,
        Wow long post is long xD
        Glad you enjoy the picspam.
        About Amatsuki, Kon hasn’t yet remembered everything but he seems to recalling bits and pieces like when they are trapped in that watery youkai world which they were in for the last two chapters. Now, they’re about to have a brush with the truth of the world they are actually in…no ancient Edo for sure. Someone in the real world will wake up for the net nightmare their brains are trapped in.
        On Dolls, I think that Shouta’s history with Saku is important because it will determine his fate at present. At least that’s what Naked Ape is trying to tell us readers. They’ve been hints that Shouta will be facing something ominous soon that will test him mentally.
        About the mags, happy to know that you’re finally getting your subs. Since I didn’t sub to ZS Ward, I’m glad you did. I’ve only ever bought the most recent Ward #19, having never bought it before even though I do read the manga titles that it publishes. I don’t sub to LaLa but I do buy random issues that interested me. I love the Furoku the mag gave away and I do miss Natsume. I usually wait for the tank volumes to catch up with Natsume. So if you do decide on getting LaLa, I definitely want to see you post teasers of Natsume.

        Oh, good stuff are worth waiting for. That’s what I always tell myself. In the end, the mags will get to you. So it’s all fine.

        Will drop you an email a little later.

        Cheers, Ayu.

    OMG the Mikhael color page of 07-GHOST is gorgeous!! one of the best I’ve ever seen from the mangaka! :Q_____ The other one with Ouka and him was used for the limited edition of volume 11 for Animate… that’s a pity. >_>

    Little Lio and Mao are so cute! ♥ The special chapter looks so sweet~

    I’m curious to know what’s happening in Tenkyuugi… Abito looks like a stalker!😄 I’m happy that finally the chapter has a cover! -stelle

    I’m happy that Atsuki and Io got the color page of Chronos Deep, they’re so rare! ♥

    Dantalion is so fashioon in his cover, he reminds me of Gareki and his clothes!😄 (I agree, the cover with Yogi and Karoku looks like the one of a couple of twins LOL)

    Hector LOL!! XDDD I read in the blog of the author that there was an error in this issue and that this chapter was ready, so it will be included in the next one!O_o
