    Just announced that the LN is getting a web comic/manga adaption for this coming fall. Will be looking forward to it and will be purchasing the merch in hopes of an anime adaption later down the line.

    More info to come on the series later.

    No, The SoulTaker and Betterman don't share the same universe. Interesting enough the comedy Nurse Witch Komugi is a spin off of The SoulTaker. :laugh

    Yes. Technically there was suppose to have been a continuation done way earlier but support for the series had waned. Wasn't until late 2016 that an LN was green lit and it's first chapters started coming out. The LN is up to 36 chapters with one published volume out. Now the LN is getting a manga adaption which is fine as long as it ends with the series finally getting animated.

    I'll be looking forward to the tech book of this should it come out. An amalgamation of the G STone and Linker Gel has to be explained in some way. :hmm



    Nice to see GaoGaiGo brought to reality.

    Going from the LN:
    Spoiler: Light Novel

    As of current it's only Guy that came back. Rest of the GGG crew are MIA at the moment. From what I recall it was a heartwarming reunion though Guy was surprised on how long he was gone.

    New Chapter released. Some interesting turn of evens that occurred but will wait for the scans to read what is going on. I'm speculation though that an element from the Betterman series is going to be used.:hmm

    Also PV for the manga volume being released later this month.


    Preview of the audio drama coming with the limited edition of the manga.

    Manga or LN?

    The translation is caught up with the manga as only six chapters have been released and the series is on a monthly schedule so next chapter will be later this month. The Light Novel translation is at chapter 34 out of the current 41 right now. The LN is on a monthly release schedule as well with this month being a double release as it missed last month's deadline. Alos to note, the LN is on it's final story arc so expect it's conclusion later on in the year.
