Description: Every 30 years, a new princess is chosen from the Hime family to serve the Hayagami. The time has come again, but over these past years, records state not a single female has been born, save for one, the 15 year old Arata. The only problem is, Arata is actually a male! Forced to disguise himself and take the place of the princess candidate until a formal one can be found, he attends the festival only to witness the current princess, Kokuri-hime, murdered, and his own life is forfeit as well, by the hands of the princess' personal guard, the 12 Shinshou. As he runs for his life, Kannagi of the 12 convinces everyone that Arata is the one who has murdered the princess instead, and now everyone in the Imperial Court is after his head! Now, another Arata from our world has crossed over in Arata's place! How did this happen, and how will these two survive?

Honestly, I'm not even sure what's going on with Arata Kangatari as a series. Judging from the lack of new Chinese scans (been at 240 for some time now), I'm assuming it's on hiatus as far as new material goes. I know that there are remastered editions of the earlier volumes that have been coming out with new scenes and such, but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it (though I wouldn't be surprised if they did, considering the publicly reported problems with her earlier editors). And if they do, I have to wonder when she'll get back around to the ongoing story.

I don't even remember the chapter or the then current plot I was reading.

So it's still alive huh.

 

Yes, Dr. Frankenstein, it is alive.

So it's still alive huh.

Kodowaki is such a punkass that the best way with coping with his dbag snowflake elitism is to go through a couple chapters of Akumetsu, then return to this series. Thats how frustrating this guy is.

its BACK!

 

It's been around since last month; it's just that no one (or at least, no one that has the initiative to upload) bothered to check the scanlation team's site until I did so a couple of days ago. Apparently not since March, even, since 214 was released at the tail-end of that month. =P 

its BACK!

I've stopped at roughly 30 chapters after the ending of the anime plotwise, is it still interesting enough to keep on reading or should I just wait till it's finished and reread it?

 

Honestly, I have no idea how long it will be before we ever reach an ending, but I will say that the story is rather enjoyable.

I finally catch up with the latest chapter and I just love how this manga twists and turn.

There's no Shounen Ai here... But I must admit the relationships between some of the male characters pisses me off. And what happened on latest chapter made me pull this manga of my follow list for the time being.

It was good manga, but I think I really should wait some chapters, maybe after 10 or 20 Kadowaki is finally gone for good(Wishful thinking)...

That would be nice, but sadly he's Arata's Sasuke.

Kanate's recent choices have led me to question whether or not he's actually just an idiot. I just don't even...

It's been a while since I have read this and I can't remember anything about Shounen Ai. Can someone explain where it is?

Its published in Shogakukan (Shounen Sunday). It's a Shounen.

 

its because its action base on male protagonist and woman surround him, adventure to other world like other shounen manga i guess

 

except, less boobs, or rito magnificent "accidents" cliche 

Well I pretty much just binged this and read up to what is released on here even though there is a big plot hole that is bothering me and am wondering if I missed something. 

 

If Himeou can tell what all the hayagami are doing like the incident on muroya where a zokushou turned to a demon, why can't she tell when Harunawa kills all of the himezoku maidens which is why Arata got in this whole mess? and why can't she tell that the six shou are all demons?

I started reading this 2 days ago and could not stop, so now I read it all. I really enjoy this manga: for one, the arcs are not too long, so the story advances at a pleasant pace. As some questions become answered, new aspects adding depth to the story turn up, makes you feel like the story is well thought-through.The characters are varied, and develop well and I feel sympathy for almost all of them. And I really like Watase's style, the costumes, the fantasy world...

 

I have trouble understanding why some people think this is a shoujo. Just what part of this manga doesn't make it a shounen? The fact that the women don't have ginormous breasts and show their panties every minute for once (although the author does make time for that, too)? I actually appreciate that, and the author did, in my opinion, make a very smooth change to the shounen genre.

 

I can't wait for the coming chapters :). Thank you for scanlating this awesome project!

 

That might be because the author is better known for shoujo for example Fushigi Yuugi. An both are very similar works. The main reason that really makes it shounen is that it is released in a shounen magazine.

I'd say an 8.5

I've seen gayer stuff (Free! would be a good example)

Free! ain't even that gay, dude

in a scale of 1 to 10 how gay is this?

Dat moe megane.

Good god, Kotoha is till being a bitch. She should have lost her right to act jealous after she dropped the bomb she did on Arata... I hope she drops this act soon.

Finally, an update! Thanks for the upload!
Did the scanlators drop this? I haven't seen a new chapter in months...
