The End

May 11, 2010 at 08:35 (Uncategorized)

The end of Alchemist has arrived – June issue of Shounen Gangan, next month’s issue.  I’ve been reading Alchemist since 2004 – six years of highly detailed art, smoothly flowing action panels, clever dialogue, concise yet full plot, excellent characterisation and a epic blend of action, humour, philosophy, fantastic abilities and a touch of romance.

I am going to miss my monthly dose of great manga but I would rather it ended than dragged out or additional chapters added.  End it and it will be good always.  A fair number of television series should follow that line.  This is probably the last time I’m going to say this – I can’t wait for the next chapter!  I had an idea of how I thought it might end but that idea has been crushed – now I just don’t know.
