    Default BLUE DRAGON: Ral Grado.


    Title: Blue Dragon - RalΩGrado (ブルードラゴン ラルΩグラド)
    Authored by Tsuneo Takano (story), Takeshi Obata (art)
    Serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump (since Dec 2006)
    Genre: Shōnen, Adventure, Ecchi, Drama, Fantasy, Comedy
    Japanese Release: 8 chapters (weekly ongoing)
    Scanlation: ongoing
    Age Ranking: Teenagers

    Summary (taken from wikipedia):
    In a world where demonic creatures named shadows enter our realm through their very namesakes, little is safe. However, when a young boy by the name of Ral becomes friends with the shadow inside him, he may be the last hope in saving the world. Ral lives on the island of Sphaein, in the kingdom of Sphaelite. There he has been enlisted to protect the kingdom from evil shadows that wish to destroy it. With the aid of his shadow, a large blue dragon named Grado, and his teacher, Mio, Ral can take on any challenger.

    drawn by artist takeshi obata, artist of deathnote and hikaru no, this manga is a medieval bowl of kickass. and yes, it IT related to the upcoming game on X-box 360......but very loosely.

    anyone read it yet? do you think stoptazmo will add it? what do you think of it?

    It seemed pretty interesting to me - I only read a little, and the kid's constant obsession with breasts is a little annoying... perhaps I'll read more when it's out. I found it a bit hard to understand, actually. Still, Obata's art is wonderful as always, so...

    If you found it annoying, the whole reason for Ral wanting to save people is so that the chicks he saves can give him their breasts. I enjoy it, it's quite interesting, good action, kinda unique, ecchi's always nice.

    its actually not too bad, i guess if the did take out the ecchi stuff then it would make the story a little better. plus i think the art is pretty good, and the story is finally starting to get interesting.

    I liked the bit I sampled, but I'm waiting to see more of the story before deciding whether to continue.

    I'm actually kinda concerned about the setting -- one of Obata's strengths is how, in contemporary settings, he grounds his art in the cultural details of our world. In a fantasy world, he doesn't have a ready-made garden bed and to use that way, as it were.

    i predict blue dragon will have a bad end, since the artist coincidentally works on great series with bad ends =\
