    Woot. I finally get to make one of these again.

    I have absolutely no idea what's going on.

    But at least we see Keldeo and Genesect.

    Fan.

    Ichiban comes out next. (So we should expect pics tomorrow or later today.)

    But the official website said the story which is in between BW and B2W2......

    Exactly what happened after the end of BW? ;071;

    Oh is that Mello designed Shadow Triad again. Man I love them from the games but hate them from the manga. Their design here is just plain!
    It's a very underrated opinion but I hope they will look more like their real design (I don't blame for the author for drawing them dully since nobody couldn't see how they really look like in the prequel game) in the BW2 manga version.
    Judging the scans, there's the Stration trio. But isn't this manga following that popular headcanon? Maybe it's finally revealing they are the same people? Or not?

    Oooh. I wonder if Black and White are going to make any appearance outside of flashbacks. It seems to be only about the Shadow Triad, Musketeers and Genesect. Could they be at the P2 Laboratory? There's lots of water, crazy currents and an island. It sort of looks like Striaton Brothers are fighting Genesect. Please Kusaka, don't crush our dreams! TT_____TT You already did it to Black. It's alright, though... I guess. But I'm still waiting for new information.

    So Ichiban is coming out pretty soon too, huh? Nice!

    Platinum fan. Enlightenment

    Genesect? Well this is a surprise. I would have thought it would be the Pokemon to meet/stop in the possible RS remake arcs like Deoxys and Arceus before it, assuming one is coming. Still I don't mind seeing Genesect here. I still don't care at all about the Striaton Brothers/Shadow Triad theory. Never have but I do like the brothers themselves so seeing them is cool.

    Kimchu Onward!

    Thanks for the scans, Lolipiece!

    Hm, I'm still holding onto the chance that the Striaton Trio are related to the Shadow Triad somehow. (please Kusaka, don't make it a red herring)

    For some reason, brainwashing comes to mind...

    Looks interesting. I'm wondering what else is going in the chapter. Maybe the Sacred Swordsmen decide to help Black out. Probably.

    I want this chapter. Nao.

    I'm wondering if this is looking onto the Muskedeer's past? No idea. Anxious to see if the Stri brothers are the Shadow Triad or not. XD

    I think maybe the Sanyou boys are battling the Shadow Triad. Someone's talking to them that's not the Muskedeers.

    White found Gigi around a year ago.

    This...confirms that she belonged to Cedric? Maybe?

    Black guesses that Zorua messed with the Roller Coaster back at Nimbasa.

    Also, there are 31 people participating in the League.

    That's an odd number, isn't it? Bit of a problem for a tournament.

    HINT. HINT. HIIINT?

    Kimchu Onward!

    Well, looks like BW's ending just took a turn for the interesting. I have absolutely no idea what's happening anymore...

    Although Gigi originally being Cedric's does raise the question why she wasn't with him in the first place. Did she run away from his lab, or....?

    Also, anyone else bothered by Shauntal's collar....thing? Honestly, I thought it was some kind of pillow-scarf, but now it just looks like an upside-down flea collar... Just what kind of fashion is that?

    ...Are you implying that one of the contestants might be a Zorua, lolipiece?

    Kimchu Onward!

    Oh, so it's not ending? ....Huh.

    Well crap, I knew I should have looked into this more before posting in here.

    But what's with the latest chapters showing basically next-to-almost the ending of BW (with N defeating Alder, Black having Reshiram, the Elite Four assembling the gym leaders, etc.)? Also, Kusaka's starting on BW2, correct? I assumed the BW arc was close to finishing because of that...

    Edit- Actually scratch that. Looks like there's still more stuff happening after the Pokemon League. Hm.

    But hey, you're providing these scans and have a clearly better understanding on this, so I'm not gonna argue. (I can't read Japanese anyway, so I couldn't even if I wanted to.) It's probably best that I don't question this until the volumes come out.....or when /a/non finishes translating these (however long that takes).

    Damnit Kusaka. You tricked us!

    But I strangely don't care, because YES STRIATON TRIO! WOO!

    I'm betting the thematic rain motif of when that Tepig ran away and when White found it is indicative of it being the same one - Gigi.

    This is just beginning, a beginning of decisive battle.

    There is still much to need explaining follow-up, like gym leaders VS seven sages, Concordia and Anthea interact with protagonist.

    We have not even see Black wakes Reshiram, and Cheren and Bianca appear again.....etc.

    I think we will have the similar amount of RS and DP in BW. :567:

    Well, technically, Black did awaken Reshiram.....kind of.

    But yes, I agree. I can see this having at least 7 or 8 volumes.

    Comparing this to DP's release...

    ...We're about 6 volumes in.

    So, we got some time before it ends if it's anything like that.

    D : Black says he will go back to Nuvema Town. He tells White about his dream of Thundurus, Landorus and Tornadus.

    Judging from one of the pictures, Caitlin is going to be creepy again. If that's the final page, I guess Karubi is going to post it.

    NOOOOOOOO!!! Kusaka, you... Well, doesn't matter. Herring must be your favorite food anyway.

    I expected to Black react more emotionally after this....however it's still an amazing twist, it's not everyday a main star gets his/her own world crumbled into pieces like this. Makes me intrigued to know how Black will recover from this.
    At least none of his remaining pokemons are planning to betray him as well. Emboar and Gavantula specially, they were crying. Poor things...

    Looks like the author had a good time to troll us regarding the Shadow Triad. Well I can't care less anyway, I hate that Shadow Triad anyway, their design sucks. The author may be excellent to give new and deeper background stories to the game characters but he drools about designing characters which looks were unknown until the sequel. I hope at least in the BW2 version of the manga he changes their looks to the official design now as we know, two years are enough to let the hair grow XD
