    I picked up a book of this during this week while shopping for some manga in a local bookstore. Is this really a manga? I know it's published by Dark Horse Comics, and I wasn't sure if it was an actual manga, or just a manga-lookalike.

    I read it before, it was in a swedish manga magazine, Manga Mania... but then they stopped publishing it because it didn't have any humor...duh. Boti together with GTO was the only good mangas in Manga Mania (the others are Power, Love Hina, Chobits and Puppet Revolution) I hate them for taking Boti from me. Maybe I gonna buy the manga pockets but I don't know...

    you have to

    you have to read the manga!!! I mean, the anime just doesn't proceed into the plot fast enough (e.g. episodes 101, 102).

    they have it on bittorrent. i downloaded it. i'm planning to buy the books on e-bay. pretty good series. it's sad seeing poor manji being hacked into pieces. it's good seeing that he's able to heal himself quickly.

    Definitely my favorite manga. It's very underrated, IMO. My favorite characters are Magatsu, Manji, Anotsu, and Hyakurin.

    I don't think we'll ever see an anime. Samura wants it to look identical to the manga, artwork and all.

    I bought a few RAW mangas from an online bookstore. You're never going to believe who fights who. :eek:

    I only have two volumes, 2 and 12, and I love it very much. The art is so fantastic, and it's nice and violent, but not to the point where it's disgusting or the people are just blurs. The style of drawing is unique, and the mangaka is quite brave for having such a unique style which is a great constrast to the simple shounen drawings of most mangas today.

    I really want to buy more, but it's hard to find and shipping is so expensive... I think Dark Horse does a good job with it though, as compared to some other translated manga *coughs*naruto*coughs*

    BotI is such an awesome series. It has an excellent storyline and the art is to die for. Hiroaki Samura is amazing! I've read a lot of it, but only own the first three volumes. I plan on buying the rest soon.

    1) How many volumes is this going to be? (it is kinda expensive from dark horse)

    2) Can I find scanlations online? (eventhough I will prolly buy the manga anyway)
