Storytime: Konjiki no Gash!! AKA Zatch Bell: Volume 16

Samuel Lee
Samuel Lee

With the first arc having drawn to a close as of volume 11, the Gash Bell dump continues, finally arriving into an actual plot and where the series truly becomes remarkable.

Gash bell is a Shonen action/comedy series by Makoto Raiku. The basic plot premise is that there are 100 kids from the demon world who come into the normal world to fight until only 1 is left standing, who is crowned king;

I'll be making a thread every day (can't give a specific consistent time of day yet due to IRL bullshit) and will post 1 volume every day until the whole run is posted.

FAQ:

Why should I be interested?
It has really fantastic art, good humor, great tactical fight's with great choreography and is really excellent at utilizing both positive and negative emotions for FEELS; admittedly the series is a little rough untill arc 2 rolls around, after that all the above starts to really shine and continues to get better; the art in particular.

Where are your scans from?
NULL's release. their site is here: n-u-l-l.net/ and they can also be found on bato.to and mangasaurus. EBJ has superior digital volumes for sale on their site, but they are japanese only, I'll be buying and ripping them eventually. There's also some really amazing quality Portuguese scans, but only for like 20 chapters halfway into the series, and, you know, aren't in english.

A-Destiny has really amazingly high res scans in english for the last 3 volumes, but they aren't publically available anywhere right now other then the last 3 volumes as jpgs on otakusmash, and the translation is generally nost as good as NUll's I feel in most cases. They also have 18-30, but thye quality isn't much better then Null's and the translation is still iffy.

Isn't Zatch bell that kiddy pokemon ripoff?
You probably saw the localized anime. The anime is pretty not great due to changes it makes and missing the last arc (nontheless, here's a link to the anime episodes: anime.thehylia.com/downloads/series/konjiki-no-gash-bell-), and the localization is fucking terrible. The manga is way better, but even it admittedly starts out only above average untill it gets into the second arc.

I encourage you to post and respond to stuff as i'm dumping pages. It's far more fun for me while dumping if I see other people reacting to stuff that's happening and there' conversations I can reply to.

HOWEVER, please do not post images till I finish so the image limit isn't hit before then, and use your judgement for how often you post/how long what you are posting is. Don't overdo it.

DON'T POST SPOILERS (IE ANYTHING PAST THE CURRENT DUMPED PAGE OF THE CURRENT VOLUME) OUTSIDE OF SPOILER TAGS

No, no, the chest and mouth are great too but they're still the same. The most interesting part is the partially petrified area. Where can she still feel and where can she not? It's probably some kind of gradient, so what can she feel in those areas, and how do they feel to your fingers, tongue and dick? How does she feel when she gets wet from you licking her partially-petrified cunny?

Was stone golem that OP? Was the stone attack something you couldn't defend against?

Earth would probably be able to win with some help, since his spells cancelled out a Zagerzemu boosted Baou, which is what eventually beats Demolt

Justin Richardson
Justin Richardson

So, OP, you're really planning to scanslate the entire series to make it higher quality and fix mistakes, right?

Do you plan on using the Japanese or the dub names?

Eli Thompson
Eli Thompson

Is rauzaruku the spell that jobs the most?

Noah Young

Oh yeah. You know. With how much of a hard time Earth tends to have in battle and with how easily he had got beaten by Goomu he kinda dropped out of my radar.

Jose Wright

Must we keep spamming this meme every time?
Some spells work some times, other times they are overpowered. The end.

Aiden Thompson
Aiden Thompson

From what Leila's said, Demolt is an idiot and right now a lot of the skill is coming from his book keeper

Maybe his bookkeeper 1000 years ago was just really terrible at what he was doing, maybe he was a coward who saw golem and ran.

Jordan Rodriguez
Jordan Rodriguez

Well, not really "scanning"; i'd be buying the volumes digitally and ripping the pages

Do you plan on using the Japanese or the dub names?

It's something i'm continually going back and forth on. I really think a lot of the dub names for spells is closer to what Raiku intended the spells to sound like, but at the same time, the dub ended early, so not all the spells have dub names, and mixxing and matching presents issue since the names of spells actually mean things, so if there's a spell past where the localization ended, and it has a prefix in it that DOES have a localized form, but other prefixes or suffixes in it that aren't, that would fuck up the pattern

What I think i'll do is for the most part use japanese names, but if the english name works better, i'll include a translators note explaining the pun, maybe?

Mason White
Mason White

Perhaps his partner was an uneducated serf? It was the medieval era, after all.

Jaxson Murphy
Jaxson Murphy

Earth is the actual jobber of the series. Does he ever actually win any battles?

Henry Bailey
Henry Bailey

It's totally my headcanon that demolt rampaging about 1000 years ago is what inspired people to depict Satan the way he is now, with bat wings, goat legs, and a horned head

Adrian Howard
Adrian Howard

Didn't he beat Gash in his first appearance?

Lincoln Thomas
Lincoln Thomas

It's totally my headcanon that demolt rampaging about 1000 years ago is what inspired people to depict Satan the way he is now, with bat wings, goat legs, and a horned head
That fits perfectly since the devil was originally just an angel who stopped following gods direct orders and wanted free will. The story just got a bit exaggerated over the years so Demolt surely wouldn't have helped.

Thomas Ramirez
Thomas Ramirez

He nearly beats gash, then Ted comes in and he and gash nearly beat Earth before Earth escapes

Luis Gomez
Luis Gomez

Patty's bookkeeper was my favorite character back when I watched the anime. They're such a mismatched team but it works so well.

Elijah Bennett

Yeah, Earth pretty much had Gash in checkmate before Ted intervened.

What I think i'll do is for the most part use japanese names, but if the english name works better, i'll include a translators note explaining the pun, maybe?
Sounds good to me.

Samuel Moore
Samuel Moore

Makes sense. I don't think Zophise would have wanted a demon around that was too weak

Luke Nguyen
Luke Nguyen

What even is the point of it anyway? What is a non-jobber character, one of those isekai MCs with everything maxed? Someone who wins more than he loses? That just means the plot is convenient for him.

Jonathan Rogers
Jonathan Rogers

Shouldn't Zophise been able to sense the TRAITOR nature in Alvin's heart, though?

Blake Russell
Blake Russell

Alvin knew. He just wasn't going to let him be uncool and serve a fag like Zophies

Isaiah Reyes
Isaiah Reyes

Japanese names, but the way I translate them might not be as strict as this translation

Like, this translation translated Victoreem's partner as Mohican S, and the dub did Mohawk Ace. I'll be doing Mohican Ace. For the core group it'll definetely be Gash, Tio, Umagon, etc. Kanchome will probably be Kanchome because Kyanchome is fucking stupid, but we'll see

Barry will be Bari, most likely. Brago will be Brago, Burago is stupid. Undecided on Zophis vs Zofis vs Zophise, but i'm 99% sure it won't be Zophise

yfw you realize that the first time Kiyomaro accidentally casted zakeru on the first chapter of the manga, he did so because he screamed ふざけるな!(fu'zakeru'na) while reprehending Gash.
Some things really just end up lost in translation.

Not really a way you can translate that. In the dub, Kiyo was trying to remember Zatch's name while reprimanding him.

Aaron Johnson
Aaron Johnson

But this is going to happen every time a big bad villain appears. You can't cycle the main cast for this when they're not equally strong, so obviously the strongest one will try to defeat it first. By default, the strongest will be a "jobber".

Because the whole point of translating it is to change the Japanese words into English words

Gash's peculiar samurai-esque way of speaking is also lost in translation, it's a shame because it really adds to his charm.

If a series runs long enough for that to become a pattern, the "strongest character" ends up with a dire W/L ratio.
See: Worf, Vegeta.

Though Zatch Bell sidesteps this pretty neatly.

Ian Brown
Ian Brown

In that case the character is jobbing. A jobber is a character that always does that, but we're still supposed to see them as strong.
For example, when we see Won Lei getting fucked by Demuto, he is jobbing to show strong Demuto is (note that this is not a bad thing). However, this does not make Won Lei a jobber as this does not happen consistently.

Hey, for anons who watched the whole anime, does anybody know what episode Bari vs Ted is?

It's anime filler, but it's well done enough i'd like to post it when we get to where in the manga it WOULD be if it wasn't filler

Carter Johnson
Carter Johnson

Is that what they did in the dub? Sounds funny but how does that make any sense with everyone else who sees Umagon later and names him in the same way?

Kanchome will probably be Kanchome because Kyanchome is fucking stupid
I kinda agree but it's still the name the author chose. Leave it to the reader to think it's stupid or not. Reminds me of the Hokuto no Ken scan I was reading the other day which had a page with a translator note saying they were not gonna translate an attack name because it sounded stupid, I still wanted to know what the name was anyway.

Which doesn't mean you change character names, or else you end up with the main character Kevin and his school friend Suzy. You know, the kind of shit we make fun of 4kids for doing? Changing spell names like Gravirei instead of Gurabirei or debating if it should be Zaker or Zakeru I'm ok with though.

Ryan Price

John Mitchell
John Mitchell

I understand, but this is a joke name based on a pun Kiyo made on the fly. It's different to, let's say, the meaning of "Parco Folgore", which never comes into play so the kids don't need it translated. That's why I'd give this one a free pass.
No reason to change Suzume either, for that matter.

Joshua Morales
Joshua Morales

I kinda agree but it's still the name the author chose

Is it? If it is, then i'll keep it that way, but I was under the impression the Y was just how people choose to translate how it is in japanese, and either or is accurate

I figured that was also true of Bari vs Barry and all the ways Zophis can be translated. If one of them is actually clearly closer to what the intent was and you can explain how, i'll make a note to myself to use that particular translation

I was under the impression the Y was just how people choose to translate how it is in japanese, and either or is accurate

I figured that was also true of Bari vs Barry and all the ways Zophis can be translated. If one of them is actually clearly closer to what the intent was and you can explain how, i'll make a note to myself to use that particular translation

I didn't know that either, that changes things a little. I don't know enough Japanese to answer that.

What are you talking about user? Sunbeam talked to him and Umagon clearly said it was his actual name.

Wyatt Moore

In jap, some syllables are missing (like Ti: Ta Shi Tsu Te To) but Ka is not one of them. Using Kya over Ka is the writer's intent.

Yeah nah, fuck you. They're arguably the most annoying characters in the entire series.

Austin Allen

Well, once he tried spelling something like Sunai... something, but I'm sure he was just confused. Everyone knows his name is Umagon.

Cameron Hernandez

It's not worth copying the foreign author's spelling if it makes the name awkward for the reader. It gives you shit like Gokuu and Kuririn.

Jacob Watson

Bari
ヴィンセント・バリー
If it was just Bari I don't see why the "ri" would be long. It's kidna dumb for a demon to have a human name but we have Ted, so it's consistent. (Also, the wikia lists him as Vincent Bari, where the hell do they mention Vincent?)
Zofis
I got nothing. I guess it does look a bit more consistent with the western names but there's nothing that points to either form.

Alright, noted that down too

others are:

graveidon vs gravidon vs grabeidon; by extension, Gurabirei vs Gurabeirei vs Gravirei vs Graveirei
dufor vs dufort vs dofoux or however it's spelled
Won Rei vs Won Lei
Li Yen vs Lee Yen
Bento boxed lunch vs Bentou boxed lunch
Seushiru vs Seishiru
Boren vs Bauren for won lei
Belegim EO vs Belugim EO
Leila vs layla vs reira
Demort vs Demolt vs Demolto vs Demorto vs Demoruto
Gorgogeo vs Gorgogio vs Gorugojio

I know R's and L's are basically interchangable, so for Won Rei vs Won Lei it could probably be either, but for his and for Li/Lee yens, whatever is close to how it'd be in chinese would be best, I imagine

For Demolt/etc I wonder if "demort" is supposed to be a pun, with "mort" as in death. The anime also clearly adds a "o" sound after the T, like Demorto/Demolto or Demoruto/Demoluto

Robert Hall
Robert Hall

I had forgotten they changed it to Krillin in the American dub and kinda missed your point, sorry. Still, "Gokuu vs Goku vs Gokou" and "Barry vs Bari" is just arguing romanization, you certainly should choose the romanization that sounds better. Changing the whole name like Krillin, Suzy or Ponygon though should be avoided, specially when those are just completely arbitrary names made by some American executive.

DO NOT sexualize the Gash!

Don't forget the Rocketeer gear too.

I wonder if Zophise is a pushover compared to this guy.
I don't think I should need to spoiler this since it's just my educated speculation after reading ahead, but:

Even after you read it's hard to compare, because Zophise is fighting Brago and Demolt is fighting the main gang. Would Brago have an easier time against Demolt? Would the main gang have an easier time against Zophise? Hard to know.

Check the kana forms (I think it's all in the wiki).
Gravi
It would be silly not to follow the gravity model imo
Dufo
lel no idea, Dufort and Dufoux are real names, choose whatever
Won Lei
Considering the chinese pronounce the r kinda like in English, it's probably Lei
Li Yen
Wikipedia says only uppity fags like Hong Kong use Lee
Bento-Bentou
Old debate, no idea.
Seushiru
That's the kana form
Bauren
Kana form (of course, it's pronounced Bowren, so using Boren is silly)
EO
No idea. Belugim kinda works because it reminds you of Belgium but that doesn't matter
Leila
Layla works due to pronunciation, but Leila looks cute... A pro would use Layla I guess
Demolt
Demort looks like a french word using "death" but given the kana, it's unlikely (it would be Demouto in that case), Demolt is fine. As for the O, japs mostly reduce final U so it's meaningless.
Gorgogio
Gorgogeo is misleading due to the geo- prefix, so -gio is fine

Christopher Sanchez
Christopher Sanchez

Would the main gang have an easier time against Zophise?
I honestly think the main gang would have a harder time against Zophise. His battle is out in the open and he can fly, so he'd be much harder to hit. So Umagon, spell enhanced Gash and WonRei wouldn't be nearly as useful.
Plus Zophise isn't toying with them and wouldn't hesitate to just instantly burn books when he gets the chance.

Christian Cook
Christian Cook

Gorgogeo is misleading due to the geo- prefix, so -gio is fine

Not sure what you are trying to say here. You saying that It's not actually geo, but since it's a stone spell, geo seems misleading relevant?

Considering that so many other spells are engrish (Gura/Gravi, Kurei/Clay, Guran/Ground, etc), I can't imagine that it WASN'T intended to sound like "gorgon" and "geo"

Jordan Foster

The anime went to the end of the Faudo arc but a lot of that arc got it's events changed

Like what you posted never happens in the anime. Zeon never gets redeemed, Won rei loses to Roudex, not Unko tin tin, Earth gets his book burnt, etc

Anime really isn't worth watching, even outside of those changes it doesn't match the art quality of the manga and it doesn't match the tone quite right either, outside of a few scenes which i've linked to when I get to those parts of the manga (the end of the Kolulu fight, the Belegium EO fight/kid's book being burnt, Brago using baberuga gravidon for the first time, all instances of songs (Chichi oppai, very melon, Pattie's song she hums, etc).

You should really go at least watch the anime versions of the songs on youtube or something, those are great. The OST in general is really fucking stellar:

Connor Russell
Connor Russell

I disagree.

The only reason Zofis took as much effort to take out as it did for Sherry and Brago is due to him using Koko against sherry. Gash's team doesn't care much about Koko

Also, Zofis wouldn't be able to tank nearly as many hits as Demolt did.

As far as Sherry and Brago vs Demolt and Robet, I think in isolation Brago would have a good challenge in demolt, but coordinating with sherry, brago and her coluld easily overwhelm robert and get demolt's book. If demolt got into his beserk mode and swallowed robert right away, I think the fight would probably be dead even

In what way?

Aiden Richardson

Come to think of it, it's great that Sherry and Brago actually scared Zophise into undoing Koko's mindfucking instead of magically befriending and forgiving. This kind of action that prioritizes character over general tone doesn't happen often in shounen manga.
We didn't get to see many of her spells, and her ultimate is pretty hack too

Ethan White
Ethan White

Her spells forced her into a super violent battle form against her will when her true spells are about maintaining and protecting life function. Compared to the other characters with support movesets not counting Shin Poruku who didn't suffer from the same thing

Isaiah Bell
Isaiah Bell

But that's because Kolulu didn't want to fight at all. Tio and Kanchome still wanted to be king.

If Kolulu did want to fight, she'd just get a support set, probably.

Nah, I see Sunbeam's thing as just a strong sense of perception. He just saw through Pamoon's attacks by reading his eyes rather than actually foreseeing anything.

Riddles on the other hand I'm sure has it. There's literally no other explanation for how he found Sunbeam in the first place.

Camden Wright

Luis Scott
Luis Scott

Well, also meant translating what the SFX /mean/

Like, the phonetics is one thing, but having dumped the first 13 volumes that had the SFX noted, a lot of the SFX aren't really obvious to what they mean.

Just from picking the patterns up, I know that the "shiiiiii-n" SFX is silence and "gata-gata-gata" is teeth chattering or fear; and I know from jojo that go-go-go is ominiousness, but if I didn't know any better i'd be like "what the fuck does a shiiiiiiiiiiiin sound mean?" So like, in that case, I want the SFX note to not read "shiiiiiiiin", but read "silence".

Or is the meaning of what the SFX are something I could more or less google?

Also, I realize this is speculatory, but do you think the Emeru\Emuru\Erumu in some fire spells is intended to sound like the english word "ember" or sound like "mera", since I know "mera-mera" is flames flickering?

thanks

Christian Hill

ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE

Gabriel Price
Gabriel Price

We'd have to see the original japanese, but when it comes to pronunciation its always very clear cut, it only gets confusing when its trying to imitate a foreign word so the call is hard to make with spells, are they words, resembling words or just the literal sounds they make? and even then you gotta chose how to romanize it, L or R, B or V, etc

That said I can't really see ember being said any of these ways, you'd definitely have a B sound in there, maybe even a silent R like the brits do it
