Gakuen Alice – [Manga]
I have been searching for manga now and then of Gakuen Alice. I have found this link recommended by OneManga for the anime. They do the scanlations yey~! They translated from the part where the anime ends so I can follow it even though there are some missing links like seeing a penguin [which is Amanatsu in anime]. I also saw some 15 year old drawings and I don’t know if they did really aged in the academy after several years. I found out that they just ate an age-altering candy. By the way, they’ve got the scans at rapidshare so it’s very accesible, it might be slow to download though.
The sad part is that they haven’t finished translating yet and they’ve only got chapters 29 – 46. The manga is supposedly 99 chapters and ongoing according to Wikipedia. It was a very short read I did. I kind of feel discontented with what I read because I stopped right in the middle of something. There were few characters that were introduced and this “Second Alice” of Mikan hasn’t been introduced yet. That is the part I want to read. It was so stubborn of me, I really want to read it and I ended up being spoiled XD.
There is a new villain other than Reo this time so I think it is still worth reading. There were also a lot of character developments for the other class members Iincho, Ruka and Natsume. Iincho had often scenes because something terrible happened to him. It was shown in the manga that Iincho really plays a big part on the class. He is also an important friend for both Mikan and Hotaru[eventhough he is always low in dialogues]. Ruka is very determined to win Mikan’s heart and he does everything to protect her. Meanwhile, Natsume is so concerned with Ruka and Mikan eventhough it means hiding the truth from them.
They’ve also got this character named “ZERO” . I don’t know why anime producers/ mangakas are fond of that name.
