Hmmm. Since it seems the old beck thread was trashed I'll use this.
The main news is that someone at last picked up translating :D
It's chapter 81 out!
Not yet up on stoptazmo, but easy to get from bakaupdates.
I was honestly getting fed up with raws getting released, I lost even the temptation of reading them and spoiling the story ^__^
Any Beck reader out there? This can as well be used for discussions... at least 'till we steal the spot in the main page from some other useless manga *cough*hostclub*cough* ;)
beck is the reason i stated playing guitar (saving for a telecaster at the moment)
I am currently looking to join a team as a editor for beck
I used to read it until the story crapped out.
On a side note, there was a Beck anime marathon on MuchMusic here in Canada this past Saturday. Which reminded me of how crappy the anime was.
yes i think the story has crapped out. The same thing is happenin' over and over. I mean everytime the group is about to release somethin' happens which set them back. I think the mangaka wants to keep Beck an underground rock band forever just so he can keep that underdog against all odds that these mangakas seem to favor.
Mahou and Koyuki's relationship is the same as it was way back in the series: one small kiss on the lip sums it up.
Thats the beauty of the story = )
( i guess is either u like stories like "they live happily ending type" where is straight ahead stories like em.. a sure sure win for the good guy expected ending a story with no twist , with no meaning ah ntg to say then )
and anime beck rocks ( it also shows how hard for someone to succes and even if u you are good u need the chances and also the political power that controls almost everything now in this current world we are living in but there is always a miracle if u try ur best doing to the fullness of ur heart )
yea seal_broken it inspired a lot of ppl i believe
Correction... It was the beauty of the story. I mean Do you know why comets, fallin stars, eclipses, or other things of the same nature are such big events??? because they don't happen everyday, if they did, people wouldn't be causing a fuss over them. That's the same with a great story. When the same thing keeps happenin' over and over again...It becomes downright BORING.

I dunno, I read some of the Beck manga and to be honest, I kinda wished it didn't exist. I mean it's really good and all but it is about music and you can't listen per se to manga.
I still prefer Beck anime over the manga in that retrospect (and the manga's art sometimes scares me...)
I hate the ending for the anime...they must've run out of money and ideas or something
I dunno, I liked Beck when I started reading it, but there's only so much your imagination can do for you. I know Koyuki is supposed to be an amazing singer, but its pretty much the same panel of him singing every single time.
I wish they'd bring that series stateside, I loved the anime. Although there's the whole to dub or not to dub thing (half the series is spoke in English)
