Monthly Dragon Age - June (5/9/2013)


No word in this issue about the status of Highschool of the Dead. It's as if last month was just some collective dream, teasing us all with a taste before slinking slyly back to the abyss of speculative hype. As of now, it there does not seem to be any plan to release Act.31 next month. That could change between now and then, but don't hold out too much hope.

In any case, it seems like Yen Press has officially announced they are locked in to simultaneous releases for all new HOTD chapters. The way they handled Act.30 left a lot of room for improvement, which is something I'm confident they will do as they get more settled into what I'm choosing to call "official scanlation."

Two new series premiered in this issue. One is a shounen trope-heavy, high school romance moe-fest featuring rabbit girls aptly titled "Inaba Rabbits." Nothing special there. The other is one I may be a little excited about. It's called "Necro Chronicle," and it's another post-apocalyptic zombie series (could it be the replacement for HOTD?). After glancing through it, it appears to use the zombie apocalypse to guide the plot rather than put focus on a societal and infrastructural collapse like HOTD. The characters are younger and it obviously integrates more supernatural elements. Of course the most glaring difference from HOTD is that it seems to be more classically shounen, whereas HOTD isn't limited by the conventions of the genre. Anyway, this looks like it has a good deal of intrigue and readability for a magazine like Dragon Age, and I would like to pick it up see it get picked up by some other group.

I honestly wasn't expecting to get this issue until Monday. As such I need to get some other things done (including a bit of a surprise for you Maken-Ki! fans) before I can get Triage X and Maken-Ki! raws scanned and posted. It could be two or three days. Stay close.


This month, Matome x Saito continues to deliver the deepest camel toes this side of the Sahara.
The story's heroine is seen here sporting the too-cute Shimapan Frontthong from the new CervixHugger line:

    1. Your best bet is to ask Japanzai or Village Idiot to pick it up as they both do a lot of Dragon Age series.

    1. I wouldn't get too excited. I've been waiting a long time for many series to get picked up, but they never have.

      Does the Date A Live anime have any yuri? The Date A Strike spinoff of the main light novel series is one of the rare true yuri series in the realm of shounen. I feel like they would tone it way down in a mainstream anime.

    2. So far it doesn't there hasn't been any Yuri. There may be some in the future, since I haven't read the light novels yet I can't say for certain.

    3. I'm not sure if the novels (which the anime is solely based on I think) had it as a major theme. In the spinoff series, however, it is extremely prevalent. I don't think there are any male characters--at least not when romance/ecchi is concerned.

    4. So far from what I've seen it's pretty much the main guy getting forced by his sister to stop the "Spirits" by starting a harem (Which is quite humorous in how they approach this subject). Which is what it's listed as. But that's all I'm going to say on that topic due to spoilers.

    1. I'm not going to make the raws public. I can't add another series at this time. Anyway, I may have found another group to work with on it already.
