Mag Updates: Zero-Sum Issue 03/13 & 07-Ghost Kapitel 92


Time for some long overdue mag updates!

Manga Digest returns with snippets from Comic Zero-Sum Mar Issue of 2013 plus teasers from 07-Ghost Kapitel 92.

Most fans of Comic Zero-Sum would have known by now that ‘Karneval’ and ‘Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist’ are being adapted into anime series. Thus it’s not a surprise to see that there are plenty of in-magazine promos for both manga titles.

But the big news in this issue (imo) is the return of Naked Ape’s series ‘SWITCH‘. I wasn’t sure if it was a re-make when there was a blurb about it in the previous Feb issue of Z-Sum but I’m glad to say that it is a new series…well, a continuation of the original with the main characters, Kai and Hal back in action. ‘SWITCH’ was first serialized in Square Enix publication ‘GFantasy’ and it ran from 2002 to 2008. It was one of my favourite shounen manga at the time. Between ‘DOLLS’ and ‘SWITCH’, I prefer the latter. ‘DOLLS’ story was too convoluted and the ending was less than satisfying even though I had expected the main character to die. But anyway, I’m just glad for more Hal and Kai interaction. Will Kai truly recall what happened to him before and does he remember Hal? Can’t wait to find out.

Kyaaa… Hal and Kai are back!

  1. Hello, can I ask it is alright to include your colour spread of Switch: the volume on Dragon Fruit in my scanlation of Chapter 1? It’s monochrome in my volume and your scan is the only coloured scan I can find online.
    I’ll credit you on my credits page in the release, and thanks in advance!

    • @bee: Ur welcome. Happy to share manga news & snippets with the fandom. Switch is just called ‘Switch’. The story continues from where the last tankoubon volume (published under Square Enix) left off. Now, the manga is published by Ichijinsha.

  3. Oh, thank you for the great little snippets! I discovered your blog while desperately hunting the net for any scans of the new Switch chapter, and I have fallen in love with your blog along the way (I may have just read through it rather obsessively)! Would it be too cheeky to ask for maybe a couple more peeks at the Switch chapter? I totally understand if that isn’t feasible ^_^

      • I apologise if you receive this twice – I was sure I replied via my email client, but it doesn’t seem to have gone though. But, eek! If you are able to do that at all, I might just end up fangirling you forever ^_^. Thank you so much.

  4. Thank YOU for the snippets, and i like this chapter. It seems that Frau and Teito met each other when they were littler. And that something happened to Frau causing to be possesed by that scythe, the answer is what?. Anyway, a fair bit of development in the story, so I will wait anxiously for the next one.

    • 🙂 U’re welcome. This chapter has some more flashbacks and Teito seems to have recovered more of his lost memories during the scuffle with Landkarte. I guess because he’s totally pure and when the darkness tried to envelope him, he could see through Landkarte’s broken soul with his light. I reckon at the time of Tiashe’s and Vertrag’s escaped (10 years ago), Frau was only newly inducted as one of the 7-ghosts. As far as I can remember, Frau’s predecessor was still alive. I don’t quite recalled how he died (might have to go several chapters back) and pass the baton to Frau as the new host of Zehel. From the looks of it, Landkarte tried to manipulate Frau by implanting Verloren’s scythe but Zehel kinda prevented Frau’s soul from totally being overcome by darkness. It’s also due to Frau’s will be a whole lot stronger than Landkarte anticipated. So, instead of having Frau do his evil bidding, Frau ended up protecting Teito/Tiashe. Now the tables are turned because both Frau and Teito ended up saving Landkarte from all that wretched sufferings he endured. *Speculation* > I wonder if they save his core, does it mean that there will be a successor for Landkarte? If so, then I reckon the most likely successor would be Hakuren but then it means Hakuren would have to die for that to happen since he is related to the God House of Oak.

      • Landkarte is not from the Oak family(2nd district) he’s from the 3rd district, Lance was an Oak, so Hakuren could become the next Rilect or it could be his cousin, Shuri ( it would do great wonders for his personality) .
