Zophis and his army of ancient demons have been quelled, Gash bell moves into it's third arc as ov volume 18! We are at the point where the series has really hit it's stride!
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.
>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
Already needs a bump
Aww yiiisss best demon chapter
Dude please, that second video is a spoiler
>Search for the Gift!
How does a mangaka draw 100s of pages for a volume? Who comes up with dialogue and everything? Man being an artist for readers must be tedious. Back up work always.
Gash best wingman
>tfw no closet demon to help you help your man
>What's happening to this school?
Vector Ball foreshadowing?
Raiku actually researched places where to keep horses in a city and found nothing.
Never change Raiku
What a depressing end
Gash best wingman
Touyama sucks dick Mon-Mon sensei a shit sensei Someone help me please
- Takamine Kiyomaro
Gash must REALLY want that fish.
This is what being a baka and chasing a fish gets you.
I keep reading all of Suzume's lines in my head with her horrible dub voice. It's killing me.
The anime extended this scene to have a whole sentai/tokustatsu theme song and it's fucking amazing
Suuuuure when a cool robot knows everything about you then they're "smart" and "strong" but when I do it they call me a creepy stalker. #double standards
This fucking guy.
I just noticed how much he reminds me of Grendizer
>Even Kiyomaro sings a little Scenes like this are the reason I watched the anime. Same with him dancing Chi Chi wo Moge in front of Pamoon's tablet
Kiyomaro is such a dumbass.
Hey, look, it's jikerudo
Rashirudo is probably my favorite spell of the series. I love how the wall just burst out of the ground, plus Kiyomaro manages to do a lot of tactical moves with it.
>enemy is a robot >"Get covered in steel!" so you just make him stronger?
user, that is not how it works
>Coral Q is THAT kid
He just wanted the spell to actually be useful for once
h-he's fast etc
>Gotta go faster Gash come on now
Truly Kiyo/Suzy is the best human pairing in this series
this is a bit bullshit, really. If he had gotten better at reading his opponents during the fight against zophis, why is it only kicking in now?
Megumi's wet as fuck
Because Zatch is an idiot who doesn't go full out unless you're a total prick And I think they just pushed that prick-ometer right on up to 11
i figured he used it pretty well against demolt and maybe even pamoon. those were the last two fights he had, right?
It kind of is, but also not. I think the point is that he wasn't really taking the robot seriously, and wasn't really trying. Gash really wants to smash his nuts now that he knows that. See how his face changed to serious when he learns that.
before it was just a contest of spells really, and coral q's were a great counter to gash's. But Gash is the better fighter. I guess.
HERE COMES THE WOMBO COMBO
Maybe because his main strat against Demolt was 'I'm gonna eat shit until I can make this guy eat shit'. Coral Q is clearly weaker, so all he needs to do is tap into whatever mindset he had during Demolt. If he fights on the level of a stronger opponent than the one he's facing then it should work out, barring gimmicks.
YO HO HO
The anime did this scene way better.
This manga is actually great
Anyone else ever play the card game?
DAT AIN'T FALCO

What a great two page.
OH SHIT ITS DAT BOI

BEST ARC INCOMING
He's not a scientist at all. He's just a NERD N E R D E R D
I'm glad raiku decided to not waste much time getting the next arc started. Demon of the week gets kind of boring quickly.
Time for some suzy bullying? Best time of the day.
Now that I think about it How much does Kiyo's mother actually know?
Because she seems pretty chill with her son getting injured, taking long trips and hanging around with attractive older men (Folgore, Sunbeam, Riddles, etc)
Well fuck now I've made Kiyo sound like a male escort.
PREPARED TO BULLY
It's implied she doesn't know but I have no clue how kiyo makes excuses
She's just happy that Kiyo finally is making friends and isn't a NEET fuck-up.
"Mom I'm going out to fight demons 'n shit, I probably won't call, see ya" "Oh that child, just like his father"
>Even Raiku's calling out his own designs
Pretty fucking much >Ma, I'm gonna skip school to go to South America >alright have fun
yes...the bullying pleases me..
Squeeze the breast, boing boing
Do your best Suzy! We're all supporting you!
Pls no bully
Gash was sent there to make sure Kiyomaro makes friends and stops being an edgy teenager. After a while, a lot of people get invited to his house and he takes frequent trips. She probably thinks Gash is really good at his job.
SHILL PLS GO
This is it. This is my absolute favourite arc. Yeah the final arc has arguably better artwork and fights, but man, this fucking arc is excellent.
TED E D
Megumi best bully.
>Won-Lei vs Unko Tintin >Momon vs Rodeaux >Ted vs Cherish and ThatOneDouche yeah, this arc is awesome
Also, still waiting for that user with the artbook to come back
>it's a hundred years too early for you to talk of the wind like me Truly delinquents
Gash is one strange boy.
>He might be as strong as Vulcan
Fucking love all of the covers in this and how they show us the introductions of demon to master. >Jeed found this little runt in an alleyway all dirty and shit >Fucking brawled with him for who knows why
>he might be as strong as Vulcan Vulcan confirmed for being as strong as a demon
Don't act like you're not loving every second of this, Kiyomaro-kun.
suzy suffering is truly best time of the day. Megumi best partner girl.
>this competition "my master can beat your master" when
These fucking faces, I'm dying over here
>Ted's waifu is actually the literary girl
>Hidenori became a delinquent demon child that punches like a truck What a world
Can we just talk about how this fucking manga handles it's harem?
Both Kiyo and Gash are swimming in puss. Kiyo >Best Girl Suzume, completely loyal, tries her hardest, cute >Megumi the fucking pop idol, totally wants to protect Kiyo's smile, actually competent in a few instances
>Gash >Koruru >Tio >Patty >Zeon's boipussy
And yet none of them ever really seem to give a fuck and the women all seem overall chill. I wish we had more interactions between them. And worst of all they don't make any signs of a decision in the end. Gash just has all his pussy surrounding him, and Kiyo just fucking keeps living on, with Megumi basically being alone, overworked, and depressed
How often is Gash on a table chair? I've never noticed he has a booster before now.
>Oh no a Kekaku
>That Gash spoiler Oh fuck, you nearly killed me. HA
Goddamnit, Kiyomaro's mother really need to stop accepting all the weird shit going on in her house.
One chapter slice of life break Another chapter with a new encouter, leading into the very next arc THINGS MOVE FAST MORE PLOT INCOMING
Is that some kind of tsundere delinquent move?
He even has a fang in a few panels. If I were a faggot, I'd be all over Ted's boipussy.
but we saw you talk to kid and riddle last volume ted.
>Shel- >ther >Shelther Shelter?
Comeon, Kiyomom, why are you shipping with Suzume when you could ship your son with an idol?
added to the list
It's the Suzume gets wrecked over and over chapter.
I don't even think she knows megumi exists. was his mom there when they were researching the millennium demons at kiyomaru's house?
He looks way too tiny here.
>the bloodlust I sent your way
But he's actually a nice guy. How does that work?
Megumi shifting into maximum overbully.
Even Tio can see the bullying.
>Humph, is there anything else!!? >forgetting about Baou Kurou Disugurugu
Which spell was that, and who used it?
Of course. She, of all people, should know bullying when she sees it.
Fuck yeah ted
Gash, it's the one where he summons one of baou's claws and attacks with it
It's manga only, as it shows up after the anime divereged, so that may be why you've never heard of it
I wish gash learned more dragon-like spells
IT'S ABOUT TO GET LIT
Considering Baou evolves and gets bigger and changes form; in a way, he sorta does.
Is it one of the spells he used in the clear note fight, or does he get it during is his battle with zeon? I'll admit that as soon as kiyo and gash start busting out more spells i loose track of what he can do. Besides, that's still taking the same baou, and gash's father might not have had it.
>Ted hanging with the main party
LLLLLLLLLLLLLETS GET RRRRREADY TO RRRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMBLE!
>Gash's clothes and shoes are no longer greenish tint and now blue like the anime Nice. That always bothered me since I wasn't quite sure what was canon.
It's first used when he and kiyo are mopping up Roudex and Jedun right before engaging Zeon, and then he uses it again against clear
Green is still the canon manga color I think, it's just drawn blue there for some reason
>Ted tried to punch out what he thought was a normal kid
Now that's rude.
what's with that shitty hair?
>Ted's pompadour >Shitty Nigga I will cut you.
Shes so happy. It's adorable.
I honestly thought i was alone in thinking that.
P U S S Y S L A Y E R
H-He's fast! It never lasts
I really love how the motorcycle riding delinquents get a series of spells that are easily associated and described by changing gears on a motorbike.
What I forgot what an asshole Earth was in his first appearance
If it wasn't for earths' loli partner, he'd never be redeemed in my eyes.
Man, bare fisted combat makes me rock hard
So why didn't the three Zaguruzemu spells on the last big Millenium Demon work like this? Yeah they exploded but they didn't resonate with each other to get this big an effect, and they were all on the guy's body.
because it was all charged on a single object so the effects couldn't be seen.
This was a chain reaction with the Zaguruzemu spread out to see a noticeable difference as Boau crawled along. The previous was just a big nuke hit at once. Plus Demolt was just really fucking powerful.
Demolt is probably so big that all the spots Zagerzemu hit were too far away from each other to resonate. Like, Demolt's shoulder is probably a full 30-50 feet away from his knee
Or raiku just hadn't thought of it yet
Probably because they were all too close to each other for any significant amplification to be noticed.
>Named Earth >Head is shaped like a star
Cause she knows what the real best ship is
>Implying the Earth isn't the brightest star in the sombrero galaxy
I just realized...I want Kiyo's coat.
You can do it suzy!
I ship Suzy with that short UFO nut
Wait. So is he actually closer to suzy then? Also the faces this chapter are top notch
there's another snakelike one he uses when he and brago 2v1 clear
The anime explained it. He was physically standing closer to Suzume at the time the question was asked. Kiyomaro took the question literally, like the oblivious Japanese MC he is.
>Dissing the Do
Man what's with our shit taste.
I love when enemy book keepers are legitimately saddened or disappointed by their partner leaving.
the legendary super ted?
God dammit HIRO
ah yea, time for best boy who's looking for best girl
wait...she can't mean they have to use..."that"!
>accidentally clicking on /toy/
ALL ACCORDING TO KEIKAKU
>Telling your melee to mid-ranged partner to move away from the long-ranged lightning user
Shit move Elly.
Just throw away the fucking sword.
I remember the loli partner's seiyu screaming every spell so damn loud in the anime.
This shit is so cool that it's getting reused in Boku no Hero Academia Not calling that one a ripoff, of course, it's just a great idea
>Demon based heavily on Japanese samurai >Just throw away the fucking sword >Throw away his soul
He only talked to Riddle, I suppose
She's too overjoyed that Kiyomaro isn't alone anymore
All I have to say is your taste is awful but you are entitled to your choice.
>Faudo name drop
>Calling someone else's taste awful >While supporting kiyoXsuzy. Nah
At least it wasn't OP. And secondly, Hiro sold Cred Forums to LowTax
Ted is too good.
>Hiro sold Cred Forums to LowTax Sauce.
I like how Raiku used modified proto-Gash and proto-Kiyo(Kiyo-loli now?) for this characters
>And secondly, Hiro sold Cred Forums to LowTax Wait so this wasn't just some fakeout?
So uh. What the hell happened to my pic?
>Those Top 2 Pretty good, Especially love the Style on the Top Right one. Reminds me of PSG a little
You posted less than one millisecond away from someone else's post.
That's a cute little bee butt.
Fucking launched him
Bottom-right is cute. CUTE
In the event that whatever the drama going on with the site ends up making me unable to continue to dump (i'm seeing some rumors that Cred Forums may shut down), i'm also concurrently dumping on 2x4chan's Cred Forums board, so either check in there or you can just finish reading the series yourself on bato.to or mangasaurus
>Top-left >Naomi's cameo appearance in the eventual sequel. Nightmare fuel.
Liking Middle Left and Bottom Right. Odd thing to say but Bottom Middle looks like it would make a great Spectrobe design
Earth resembles Solgaleo from Pokemon SM
>i'm seeing some rumors that Cred Forums may shut down This is the second time I've seen this now. What the fuck is going on? Is it something to do with those 'make up rules for Cred Forums' threads I've been seeing recently? Fuck, I don't want to emigrate to another chan.
End of volume 18
Damn son. No mercy.
>i've had teachers like this
Hiro just couldn't handle it anymore
>forgetting Barry's fight Best part in the manga for me. Best demon.
This is kinda hypocritical considering he was just threatening Ted's partner.
kek, nice one Gash.
It has something to do with Hiro apparently giving up on Cred Forums and Selling it or handing it over to a Mod.
The best part is how content he looks eating that potato
>Burned potatoes with BURNed Suzu Pottery
Okay this is the first time I'm seeing this, so bare with me. I don't think this is him selling the site so much as just handing control over to a mod who can both understand our language and bullshit better; while he still owns the site. I think this is a false alarm. I hope.
>Not supporting Kiyo/Suzy If you don't see why it's great then I can't help you
Is there even a /j/ ?
Kiyo/Suzy would be just fine, but unfortunately for Suzy, Kiyo has a much better option
Super secret janitors/mods/admin only board.
No. Said this apparently,
But suzy is best girl.
That's where you're wrong, user. Devotion alone does not a best girl make
I'm waiting for "Live strong."
wasn't this the last episode of the english dub?
But adorable airheaded klutz that represents a return to normalcy and a peaceful life does
This user speaks the truth.
IIRC Yes. I found it understandable since a character who caused Panty shots IIRC was introduced later on, while the anime was being advertised towards kids a little. Though I sort of wish they had stopped around Ted.
Time for Based Mick Jagger
I guess they just didn't want to dub Coral Q's song.
>adorable Debatable. Kiyo certainly doesn't seem to get that impression
>airheaded klutz Not really best girl traits. More troublesome than endearing
>represents a return to normalcy and a peaceful life Kiyo is and always was meant for greater things, demon king fight or no. He doesn't need a completely unremarkable girl weighing him down
don't worry suzumefags, you'll get a hope spot a bit later
Man, out of the whole mamodo power lottery, Ted got by far the most satisfying power. The power to punch niggas in the face real hard.
You're just bullying yourself at this point, Suzy.
AFTERIMAGES WITH MASS?
This makes me want to boot up the fighting game again. I didn't even know until recently that Rauzaruku was in it as an unlisted move.
Does anybody know what episode the barry vs ted filler was?
What are the characteristics of Musical Keys?
wiki says 123
>people still think Kiyomaro, the ultimate Chad, would go for an /r9k/ beta Pretty Princess Wojak
Living in a fantasy world is not healthy.
>this entire post You're on the wrong board.
No I say I'm on the right board.
Kiyomaro is literally the perfect male. Suzume is at best a beta and at worse a girl who would fit in /r9k/ after losing Kiyomaro forever. Stop deluding yourself from the truth, you actually seem more like some /r9k/fag than someone from Cred Forums because of this.
Gash is only 6, so it's understandable for him to not be interested in romance. Kiyomaro is just dense though.
Are you forgetting that she has a kiyo sense that she can tell when Kiyo is in danger or when he's nearby. That is some next level best girl powers there.
Kiyomaro is also only 14, spent most of his life as a social outcast, and is probably very distracted by a life-threatening battle royale.
post a single panel that shows kiyomaro being a chad
Earth knowing that Gash had Baou is complete bullshit. There is absolutely no reason for him to assume that anybody other than Zeon had it.
Unless he was also watching them during the millenium demon arc or even before that, which is never implied.
Couldn't the king just have told earth's family since it'd be in their purview to know?
Megumi and Tio are pretty competent overall, they just got shafted in the power lottery by only getting support spells. Tio really needs a body enhancer to operate alone.
He could've, but why would he? He specifically sent Gash away to hide the fact from absolutely everybody possible that he had Baou.
There was no reason to tell lawmakers. In fact, the one guard they sent to go pay the woman Gash lived with probably didn't even know why exactly Gash was out there.
Forgot he had this spell. Why doesn't he ever use it
Except that Gash had been using the fuck out of the spell, he could have found out about Gash having the spell due to his use during the previous arc, and then figured things the rest of the details out.
Because it's really situational, without a lot of metal around it's useless.
actually yeah how the fuck did Earth know that Gash has Baou?
The only thing I can think of is just word of mouth: several demons hears of the fearsome power of baou and tells other demons
there's some demons with the capability of tracking other demons, it would be no surpise if someone picked up on Baou's power.
It's wise to tell at least SOMEBODY else since it's still a potential thread. What if the king died without telling anybody?
They get better. MUCH BETTER.
In the video games Tio has an upgraded version of her offensive spell, Saisu. It's not much but I'm glad it's there.
Love how it changes. Pretty great to make Baou more interesting
Just noticed these threads a few days ago, good stuff OP. I'm still mad Viz never finished their English release of the manga.
Anyone that's been reading totally blind thanks to these threads? Rarely see Gash Bell threads on Cred Forums, all the reactions to big moments have been great.
Can't wait to see Zeon finally get some real exposure this arc.
This series really makes my day brighter, thanks OP for diligently posting every day!
At first I thought it was cheating that Earth had a magic sword that absorbs strength but then I remembered that Gash also has a magic item and has been wearing it all along, he's just too dumb to realize it.
Yeah, but who automatically assumes that their dress is a magical item?
>this cover Harem manga confirmed.
>those demons who just kidnapped their partners Oh Raiku
It's got nothing on Leo and the two items he brought, a staff that can curse people to death if they don't do something he commands them to, and mother fucking Faudo.
HOW DID THAT HAPPEN
I think of it as that they just detonated all at once since he hit them all with Baou so they didn't get a chance to amplify
>it's zagurzem chain time
>Madman Mode Initiated
ITS HIP TO
Thanks for the dump >09/21/16(Thu)
>i'm also concurrently dumping on 2x4chan's Cred Forums board OP for once I thought you weren't a faggot but now I clearly see you are indeed a faggot.
OP here, just so everybody is aware, tommorw's dump will start early, probably sometime between 9-11 am EST
If i'm going to spend 5 hours of my time every day dumping, I might as well dump it to other places at the same time to maximize the amount of people who will get to read it, no?
Cool OP, Gash Bell is awesome.
>random hip japanese person likes Zatch Bell absolutely based
But Gash Bell anime was garbage.
I wouldn't say it's garbage but it's certainly not nearly as good as the manga
anyways, maybe he didn't litterally mean the anime, but just meant the series in general
