Blade of the Immortal, chapter 198/211

It's time to begin this. The first chapter of BOTI volume 30...the finale is coming soon, people.

Here, it's come down to Giichi vs. Makie. Makie looks like she's swaying on her feet after such a difficult battle and Giichi's hunter blood is roused again. Makie has always been someone consumed by guilt at her own talent, seeking to flee from it- or to die. Now, she's facing an enemy who might be able to bring her down when she's far from her best...

Let's get this going. Thanks to Other Side of Sky for the amazing work he does, Blade of the Immortal volume 30 ahoy, cleaned by yours truly and Crazy Ankan, typeset by Wright and checked by Kazuhiko...enjoy the count down to the finale.

And this is dedicated to manga pioneering translator, Toren Smith. Wouldn't even know of this manga if not for you, sir. Ever read the English translated versions of Ghost in the Shell, Nausicaa: Valley of the Wind, Appleseed, Lone Wolf and Cub? You have him to thank. Mr. Smith translated BOTI for US audiences and ssadly passed away not long ago. Honor him by buying his work and the BOTI volumes as they come out.

I'll write more on BOTI and what it means to me soon. For now, enjoy chapter 198/211 (depending on if you use American or Japanese numbering, it's 198 in Japanese)

Here we GO

  2. Thanks guys, much appreciated. I have a question though; in your last release (vol26) the index page states that volume ends on chapter 210 "Dance of a Hundred Views Part 2" however the last chapter in that volume is 209 "Dance of a Hundred Views Part 1" where Maki kills Doma and the spearman, ending with Giichi walking up benind her. So if this is 211 then where's 210?

  5. Hello, friends. Do you suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Mungen No Juunin Disorder? Do you check mangahelpers five times a day for raws? Does no one scanlate your favorite manga despite the backlog of raws? Do you check mangaupdates six times a day? Is no one still scanlating your manga? Then try...HAPPY SCANS!
