Emeraldas Volume 4 and Robot Keiji 19
The end, and the return. In the final volume of Queen Emeraldus, we are treated to a rather...melancholy story. Far from focusing on action and drama, we truly get inside Emeraldus's head in her solitary journey as she remembers the ones she loves and the ones she's lost.
Leiji Matsumoto often works in these themes: the endless search through the stars, those who follow their ideals to their end, the loss of youth, and it's very apparent here. Emeraldus is inscrutable as ever and strong while simultaneously vulnerable and with a great sadness to her that nobody can truly pierce. But life, as it always must, goes on. And so must the voyages of Emeraldus.
We hope you've enjoyed reading! Enjoy this final volume
And now...Krazy has finally managed a comeback for one chapter of Robot K, and I dearly hope more are coming, too! Believe me, guys, I want it as much as you do! We're glad we can bring it back. K is searching for the meaning of his existence and comes to a conclusion at last, evoking the humanism Ishinomori is so known for.
Here's chapter 19
