Did someone order more Ishikawa? A demon beast invasion mayhap? Well, with our good mates at Dynamic Pro we bring to you the first of Ishikawa's early work, Majuu Senses, the Demon Beast Invasion, with a HUGE thanks to Takeru Kiyori for taking some time on this while he also works on Kyomu Senki! As we await more of that and Shin Mazinger Zero, enjoy this one...about scientists, ancient beasys and people controlling beasts as a crisis begins on earth. One can definitely recognize some of Nagai's signature style here, which is no surprise given the influence he was on Ishikawa himself.
I must also add that we could use some help, especially for cleaning, translating and for Clockers!
Well, here's Chapter 1

It's volume 4 of Shutendoji at last. Jiro learns where the battle lies and assembles his own team to take on Kitani and his forces...and the battle shall begin.
With Hokuto no Gun, we proudly present volume 4 of Shutendoji with great thanks to A1oner, Katatonia and Chaos!
And we are now looking for translators and editors! Please consider lending a hand!
Well, what a ride this was, and it's a story that holds a special place in my heart, ever since I saw the movie on it many years ago. It's a great supernatural Sci Fi epic and it's a damn shame so little of Yamada's novels have been translated into English. The only one I'm aware is the Koga Ninja Scrolls, or Basilisk as it's also known.
Yamada never did adapt the first of Yamada's Jubei Yagyu Trilogy (perhaps because it's way more grounded in reality). This, however, one can read all on their own. Jubei is portrayed as a mischievous, if righteous and driven. The villains are a combination of monstrous, challenging and sympathetic in equal measure. There's history, action, fantasy and horror and great art as only Ishikawa can deliver.
Let's enjoy the end, guys...and now we really need help with editing. Cat's Eye and Clockers especially with Net absent. We could use the help with translating, too.
Well, all that said...enjoy the end of our epic
And the whole volume in one
EDIT: updated with new link!
