Konjiki no Gash!! AKA Zatch Bell: Volume 22

Jaxon Garcia
Jaxon Garcia

Zophis and his army of ancient demons have been quelled, Gash bell moves into it's third arc as of 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.

The captcha is being such a bitch I forgot to do the FAQ

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

Lucas Gray
Lucas Gray

I'm not sure how I feel about won lei's plot line in this arc. It kind of feels like forced drama, and makes it seem like lee yen is never anything more than a damsel in distress, despite supposedly being pretty capable herself
Although it does give won lei something to do besides just be another good guy, I don't think he really developed at all the last arc.

Lucas Edwards

Luis Reyes

He's pretty good at just executing on really generic tropes in general while still having them feel genuiuine

Like, the power of friendship stuff this series has is as corny as you can get on paper, but in pratice it works really well. Last volume there was also the standard "pick between two bad choices, take a third option" tropes, but it was executed in such a way that it felt well done

I love this manga. Still one of my favourites after so many years. Gonna have to read it a 3rd time soon.

Also definitely recommend Doubutsu no Kuni / Animal Land. It's by the same author. It doesn't start off as exciting but it definitely gets there. It also has a bonus Gash Bell epilogue chapter in one of the volumes.

Personally I think this past page was translated really poorly. I don't know what "erase their presence" is supposed to mean and a lot of the wording is just iffy

Are any of the anons who can read moon on that can look at the raw page?

Ryan Jones
Ryan Jones

Erase their presence
Honestly, it sounds like a censored 'kill them'

Carson Roberts
Carson Roberts

That's my best guess as well but the series has never really tried to avoid saying kill or anything before now, and the context of the conversation seems to be trying to stay undetected, so...

Mason Davis
Mason Davis

It's some chinese bullshit that is as popular in manga as Ki. Basically you max your Stealth and walk around as silently as possible. Some versions also include "dropping your bloodlust" since enemies can detect that, supposedly.
Except that, since they're demons and actually have magic that can be detected by others, it's a real thing in this setting.

Owen Gray

Right, but in the contest of the sentances being said that doesn't make that much sense either.

Sauza says "it doesn't seem like the other demons have sensed their presence yet", but that's incorrect, we know zaruchimu has. He then says "Use your skilll to erase their presence".

That would imply Earth has a parituclar skill to mask their powers, but he has no such skill, and in fact, just goes on to raise his own power, causing them to be detected.

Then you have what momon and Leo say.

It seems like they switch from it meaning "to kill" to meaning powerlevels every other sentance.

Josiah Parker
Josiah Parker

Ah, you're right. It actually sounds like a pun. Since it would be bad for Earth & co to be detected, and the Kiyo group is lying there, Earth group will simply """erase their presence""".
But then Momon's dialogue is weird too... Yeah I don't know.

Dominic White
Dominic White

H-HE'S FAST!

Leo Howard
Leo Howard

Likewise i'm 99% sure there's a mistranslation in this past page and in

We already KNOW it can send faudo back to the demon world, that's the whole point. They shouldn't be acting surpised. I think what kiyo should be saying i "send him back to the demon world after the seal is broken"

Cameron Perry
Cameron Perry

They're surprised at his claim that he can do both

Fucking Kiyo

Right, but that's not what he's claiming there, he's only saying he can send it back, not send it back and lift the curse, which is what he should be saying

Levi Brooks

Are those eyes the thing i think it is?

Nathaniel Allen
Nathaniel Allen

Yes, that translation is pretty screwed up.
Basically, Karudio learned how to erase his presence from Earth, and they both used that to go unnoticed. That's why Momon didn't notice them before they got close.
They then stopped hiding their presence in order to fight Gash, which lead to Zaruchimu noticing them in

Samuel Lewis

It is and it isn't. Raiku never made up his mind, I don't think.

In my headcanon Raiku gave Sunbeam and Prof. those eyes and mental abilities to foreshadow answer talker a bit so people wouldn't be so caught off guard by it's reveal.

Luke Ramirez

Oh yeah him too. Even tho he didn't have the eyes he also was an example of heighten senses.

Justin Price

It's my personal theory that they all have aspects of Answer talker which is why their eyes will look like that but they haven't unlocked the full power of the ability, which is why they only sometimes have the power.

Jackson Bennett

Because it refering to power levels doesn't make sense the other times it's said?

Jacob Ramirez
Jacob Ramirez

It's not just powerlevels. Like I said before, in jap folklore normal humans also "erase their presence", meaning that they walk stealthily, breathe quietly, etc.

Cooper Ramirez
Cooper Ramirez

So am I supposed to believe that Keith, the giant lizard mecha, Edge and cyborg, Edward scissor hands, eyeball ninja and edge-hair are all helping to revive Faudo without curses?
Or can I just not see the curses on their partners?

Cooper Young
Cooper Young

Not sure if spoiler since it was mentioned a bit earlier but anyway
They have the same intention to use Faudo for their own means.

John Russell
John Russell

Well, since every cursed person gets their fancy reveal panel, I'd assume they're not cursed.

Camden Diaz
Camden Diaz

Right, that's what I mean.

What I was saying about killing though is on this page , Riou clearly says "if gashes' sdemon power is erased or not" in the context of him surviving, along with some other times

Jacob King

That's just a word, not the expression. Clearly Leo is probably fancy language.
If the opposite happens...

I know, it's just there was such a focus on Dioga this arc that I would have expected a few more that actually used the word. Though I know that the true Baou is certainly above some Shin spells, but actually gets a Shin version of itself.

Henry Wright

Probably weren't close enough for Leo to find them. And as if Brago would lose to any of his henchmen. And as if Sherry would give a shit about being cursed and do what Leo says. And as if Brago would let her.

GEOGRAPHY SAVES THE DAY

But its perfectly okay to just jump between dimensions? Nah range shouldn't be an issue in teleportation. Enough energy to jump 5kms or to the sun, what difference should that make.

We have to save every single person
But, its okay to let the initial destruction of demon civilians happen just because the adult demons "might" be able to stop Faudo, eventually
Faudo was originally sealed away because those demons were scared shitless of him.

If I say it's an issue then it is. It doesn't matter if it makes sense
Fuck you, send him to the sun.

Leo's actually a kind hearted guy who wants to be a kind king
Even as a dictator, he'll still keep everyone alive and happy, he wont make sacrifices or deal with those he sees as unworthy
The guys an asshole, you're delusional if you think he wont throw a tantrum if teleported back or if you think he wont just try to usurp the current king with force. It'll be chaos .

Matthew Ross

Oh shit it's gonna happen

Leo Stewart

You don't need to be a kind king to see how stupid it is to just destroy the place you're supposed to be king of.
If you kill everyone, there's no one to rule.

Luis Stewart

It hasn't stopped those in power IRL from making that mistake countless times in history. What makes you think an asshole with magical god powers wont do the same.

Oliver Jackson
Oliver Jackson

I'm on my phone someone spoil it for him and tell him why sending them back to the demon world right now isn't an issue.

Alexander King

They don't know that though.

Justin Morales

Fine.
Everyone becomes a spirit when they're sent to the demon world until the king is decided
You asked for it.

I love Kiyomaro as a protagonist so much.

John Jackson

So fucking what. He just waits until the kings chosen then goes for the crown himself. It doesn't change anything except time. Faudo is still just sitting there, waiting.

Jaxon Jackson

When the King is decided, they literally have life and death privileges over every spirit in the demon world.

Jonathan Wood

Leo is such a scum, I really hate this kind of characters.

Oh look, it's Vanilla Ice.

David Diaz

Okay
Wait until the end of the arc and you'll understand why Faudo would be a non-issue
That's as far as i'm saying

Bentley Taylor

That other user forgot to mention that the King can choose who gets to change back and who are essentially dead. And that's for the entire demon world and all it's inhabitants not just those that participated.

Ryder Morris

Gabriel Campbell

Wow, I can't wait for Kiyomaro's death next volume.

Thomas Allen

Okay that's just stupid. What if a total edgelord won and chose to revive fucking nobody. That's a hell of a gamble to put on the future of the entire demon "species".

Cooper Barnes

That's why the tournament is so important. Last arc!

Camden Carter
Camden Carter

It's almost like you read it, that's a good description of the final boss clear. Also the guy setting this up is a god that's motivation seems to be that he likes to fuck with the demon world.

Cameron Murphy
Cameron Murphy

the battle is called the trial of god and noone in the demon world knows who's actually in charge of doing it

Dylan Jackson
Dylan Jackson

That's why Gash is fighting to become a kind king, user.
Still, as long as endgame Gash, Brago and Kyanchome exist, Faudo wouldn't be able to do jack shit.

Hunter Morgan

Congrats on figuring out the final boss of the story

Wyatt Jackson
Wyatt Jackson

that's what happens with the final boss of the last arc, it's an edgy little shit that literally has no personality other than "erase everything" and of course that's a big problem

Because he wanted to follow it to make sure it worked, but didn't want to get teleported underwater.

End of volume 22

From here on out the Manga and Anime are radically different. Even people who have already seen the anime should be surprised.

On that note, are there even anime animeonlys still around? in the first 2-3 threads most people had seen the anime but never the manga but I haven't seen or heard much of that since then

Lincoln Hernandez
Lincoln Hernandez

i dunno if i should find this incredibly endearing or absolutely sad...

Levi Hill

Well they did pledge allegiance to a kaiju about to destroy the world. A little interdimensional trips isn't the worse punishment, though I suppose the humans would be a little confused about their new life in the demon world.

Nicholas Barnes

Ah. Ah. Next volume's gonna be full of tearjerkers.

i for one wonder
how is it gonna be with a certain demon on faudo's side whose name starts with a C, and that other demon whose name starts with a T who has been looking for her

Dylan Flores

No, I think it means that Earth and co were able to hide their presence from other demons, which explains why zaruchimu is surprised to sense 2 demons near the device. Momon is commenting on how that explains why he couldn't feel them until they reached the door. At least if the anime subs are anything to go by.

Andrew Butler

Something about calling Gash a midget when everyone in the contest is a kid tickles me

Ryder Turner
Ryder Turner

I can't tell if 100 demons is a feasible number in this whole series. They're all fighting each other, many make reference to having dealt with certain types before, the 40 demons of the past fucked over a good number of them, a small number of them make up the main gang at over the course of the series, the endgame giganiggers have to be fucking up people left and right rather than sitting on their asses and gash alone has sent back over double digits at this point.

Jason Reed
Jason Reed

There's something like 20 or so demons unaccounted for by the end, but you're right in that the cast deals with most of them, so the rest of the characters had to have been sitting on their asses most of the time for it to make sense

Jose Price

You're missing the unknown number of fights that did not result in a book being burnt.

According to this (this literally spoils the entire series so don't look if you haven't finished)

There's about 44 guys unaccounted for, and most of them were knocked out during the 100 -> 40 period

John Johnson

I know its super late but I think I figured it out, in this page there should be a mention of a timer/remote function specifically, not just a sending back function. This is because Kiyo brings up how empty Faudo is, meaning anyone inside it other than the organ demons had to leave and remotely activate it, which is the answer they need for sending it back after breaking the seal and this fact is what they later work off of

Lucas Bennett
Lucas Bennett

I never entered in on of these threads and I really don't care about the story in this one either but I'm here to say good job. It takes time and a lot of patience to dump a complete series like this and a one with over 20+ volumes at that. So thanks for your time

If you haven't then you should it's a great series.
