I found this neat fanfic of Cyrus raising Mitsumi called Beautiful Light. Be careful since there are a lot squeamish parts where Mitsumi is put through so much pain it isn't even funny. But if you're interested anyways, check it out.

I only just stumbled across this manga series; I have very little access to manga other than the internet, living in the butt-end of nowhere as I do. I found it... different. It was certainly different how Hareta "caught" Regigigas, earning its respect rather than wearing it down and throwing pokeballs at it.

Though I did half expect Hareta to make a nest or something in the moss growing on its shoulder, considering how much time he spent up there.

I really enjoy DPA! because Hareta is such a sweet heart.
While he does catch some Pokemon through battling, when he confronts Legendary pokemon, he would rather befriend them than catch them, which I think is the reason for why Regigigas warmed up to him. Hareta is not afraid to battling WITH his pokemon, to the point where he can take quite a beating from a Pokemon and still somehow pull punches at them. He's a fighter.

Also, about that nest thing, it wouldn't surprise me if he did do that at some point. That would be adorable.

I just wish I'd been able to finish the series. I ran into it on the online manga site Mangafox, but they only have up to volume 6 posted, so there's nothing past when Hareta's father shows up and gives him the egg. It was more than a little frustrating. I live waaaaay out in the "sticks", so I have very, very few options when it comes to manga. Most of the stuff I like is unavailable here and can't be ordered >.<

And now I have a mental image of Regigigas sitting with its back against a tree and a snoring Hareta curled up in its shoulder moss ^^

Wow, I am only on book 2 of this series, but it is AWESOME so far! I love all of the characters, but Hareta is definitely my favorite! He is just so darn FUNNY! XD I would love to be able to know him in real life, haha! XD

EDIT: Wow, it has been a while... but seriously, no one likes this series anymore? It is still as epic as ever... D:

So I assume by this point you've finished reading it, yes?

Also, a reminder that November is the second annual Diamond and Pearl Adventure! month!

I still wish this series expanded on certain points rather than skip a lot like with the Gym Leaders. They could've fleshed out the characters much more.

I've just started on this series but what is the point with these random manzais?

Aside from that fact that I asked that question myself... wrong series. Very much so.

I think that's because the focus isn't on the badge quest but on the Galactic plot. We don't even see a full Cynthia battle.

Why not both? It'd make for good battles and good stories.

Because the focus is on the Galactic plot. Nothing wrong with that. Hareta even starts out not intending to get badges but to find Dialga.

Good god, the lack of respect and attention this series gets is abominable. I proposed a group readthrough and it got no attention.

Come on people, get with the program! I know it's an older series by this point but even when it was still being released it was ignored, and that's completely unfair.

Look, some people, like me, just don't have the manga easily accessible. Just because we don't have the means to participate in a group readthrough doesn't mean that we (or at least I) mean disrespect for the series.

Believe me, nothing would thrill me more than to be able to take part in a group project such as that, but I just don't have the manga and therefore cannot participate. No disrespect intended.

Honestly, I would have loved to see the idea take off to a point that we could do group readthroughs of other Pokemon manga in the future. PokeSpe is overshadowing some great stuff out there. =\

Well, it's just frustrating to see so little love for it. Every active thread right now is about Special, and this is shunted to a single thread.

Guess who's back
I have the whole series and been wanting an excuse to read it again as I haven't done so in a while so I'll happily partake in a group read through if it's still on the cards!
