Do you all know where I can download the original scanlations of Ken Ishikawa's Seiten Taisen Flieder Bug? I don't mean shitty compressed reader sites, but the original uncompressed releases from Happy Scans?I finished reading the Getter Robo Arc manga and I am hungry for more.
>>19906652>Happy ScansIt's gone forever.
I got them off Mangadex with Tachiyomi, they seem to be original quality with the non-color pages in Gray8 instead of BGR24
Does this title have anything to do with the Qítiān Dàshèng (齊天大聖, Pinyin: Qítiān Dàshèng , Japanese: Seiten Taisei ; lit. meaning "Great Sage Equalling the Heavens" that appears in the Journey to the West?
>>19913581Yeah, that's a monkey man behind her. It's all China themed IIRC
>>19911110Thanks breh, I found the still working happyscans mega and mediafire directories from archive.org, but your link has way more stuff.What happened ot Happy Scans btw? And to Dynamic Pro Scanlations?
>>19910207What happened to them?
>>19913581I loved this manga. It's like a yakuza story with popular/fantasy theme that ends in somethhing like Journey to the west, where Sanzo is now a girl.
>>19913581The big guy is literally Sun WukongHe also used the girl as a revolver
>>19915289His hand is too big, so he has to use her as a gun
>>19915321>>19915323>>19915324lmao brilliantIt's a shame so relatively few Ishikawa stuff got translated
>>19915360Ishikawa is fucking awesome in graphical narrative and in action and movement representation. Also he is unique on ambientation.
>>19922401I'd like him to have multiple forms like the Getter, and for this to be Bug-3 while Bug-1 is the main one from the Flieder Bug manga.
>>19913608IIRC one of the great buddhist flagships from kyomu senki is called Maka as a nod to this manga.
>>19922943I hate how Getter sidelines other forms so Getter 1s can hog the limelight.
>>19922943Not everything made by Ishikawa has to have Getter influence
>>19922943What kind of deviantart faggotery is this?
Bug, But Seikun.
What are the scratchy lines on ishikawa faces supposed to be
Bug is her name.The Mechas name is Seikun.
>>19937570>what the future alien gave him was actually a blueprint to vast grow an autist psychic waifu>the mech was entirely Dino Empire's creation to utilize her powerWould be a fun little twist
>>19938054Not enough time for that, but it would be cool if they sneak in a line about how the technology for Bug came from the Bug Clan.
>>19952227That's one retarded looking navy
>>19914997They gave up
>>19953315Why? Who's gonna finish Kyomu Senki now?
>>19940561DAMN YOU BUG CLAN!
>>19940561>Bug ClanBug-Tang Clan
The editor-in-chief of Super Robot Magazine, where the Getter Robo Arc was serialized, is Kazuki Nakajima.After the series of Getter Robo Arc ended, the magazine was closed due to lack of sales, and three years later, Ken Ishikawa passed away.It is said that Gurren Lagann of "Gurren Lagann" is the robot that was given the power of spiral force instead of the Getter Line, based on the concept of "Getter Robo Saga" that Kazuki Nakajima was told about in a meeting with Ken Ishikawa.
>>19970343>After the series of Getter Robo Arc ended, the magazine was closed due to lack of salesOther way around. Arc ended prematurely because Super Robo magazine was cancelled.
>>19913581Does Ishikawa like ancient chinese classics is why he uses them a lot?
Still don't see how this is an indication on direction of Arc could have ended.
>>19953014It's for launching the mech from the mouth.
>>19991838by the way, Seiten Taisei(斉天大聖) is Sun Wukong's title as "Great Sage Heaven's Equal"
>>19964522I forgot Bug showed up in Hien, did the pilot's identity ever get revealed before it finished/went on hiatus?
>>20022265Why is encounter a Jap such a big deal to the guy?
>>20012038Nah, I think it's implied that it is Kamui but never confirmed
>>19918737Which manga is monkey man from? Are the rest of the gods from New Getter also there?
