Sabu and Ichi chapter 83 (END)
Well...the day has come at last. Sabu and Ichi's adventures come to their end. Or at least Shotaro stops writing about them.
I encourage you all to read Chaos's final thoughts on the series. When I suggested it to him so long ago now, I never thought we'd become so attached to it as we have now. Sabu and Ichi takes a lot of cues from Japanese detective fiction, but Ishinomori uses them to explore social commentary and show how even two men on the lowest rung of the social ladder can do good in the world. That's really what the whole series is about: doing the best with what you have,
So, let's hear it for Chaos, for his masterful translation, Angel of Chaotix for his attention to every script, and my man Kazuhiko for everything he did in the editing.
See you around, Sabu and Ichi. It's been a blast.
