Now that Eat-Man has finally been completely scanlated, any thoughts on the series as a whole, or how it has ended? I must admit, the ending was kind of surprising, and yet, very fitting at the same time. Couldn't figure out who the girl was that accompanied Bolt at the end, though. Does anyone know? Is it Stella?
For those who've never heard of it, Eat-Man is a 19-volume science-fiction slice-of-life epic, detailing the adventures of Bolt Crank, the World's Greatest Adventurer. Bolt Crank has the unique ability of being able to eat anything and then regenerate it from any part of his body - like eating the parts for a machine gun and then projecting it fully-assembled from his hand, etc. Set on a distant futuristic planet, each chapter is a different story about Bolt or one of his fellow adventurers. There was a long story arc once, in which Bolt faced his strongest nemesis, but other than that most chapters are standalone adventures, with some characters recurring in later chapters.
It's one of my favourite science fiction mangas. Anyone else read it?
