Oh, so they were opened by shop staff and posted? I was just worried that Amazon was getting sloppy. No point in preordering them if they are going to be late! Also, I didn't see the thread for the toys, so I'll get back on topic for the comic for this thread.

Were they serving Japanese style "chaohan" (fried rice) in the comic? I just cooked myself some frozen Japanese chaohan from 7-11 and was eating it as I looked at this article.

The combined form of Overlord Giga abd Overlord Mega is named "Overlord Tera".

I would imagine that this form is possible to achieve with two Overlords as a way to put Overlord on the same size level as God Ginrai, since whenever Sakamoto does some new mode thing like this it tends to be something that one can finagle out of the toys themselves.

It can't be done with Black Shadow, but after trying, i see how it works. While the nose section of OLa's jet mode clips to OLa's chest, the nose section of OLb pegs upside down into OLa's... well, butt. Then the rest of the jet clips to the nose like normal, and the legs clip to the jet, with the turret halves deployed.

Edit: also, you would have to swing OLa's back pack onto his shoulders to support OLb's legs.

So basically this comic is an advertisement to sell all those Hasbrolords nobody bought. I remember they were selling them $30 free shipping and I still passed.

On topic: That double Overlord combo looks hella rad. I mean I have no interest in either version of HasTak Overlord, but still. Awesome. A bit of a shame about the lack of lewd shenanigans if only because the reaction from Allspark and the other dens of oversensitive keyboard warriors is always hilarious, but hey, this is fun.

Why would you write this? I'm not a fan of these comics, but as sick as they may be, its also obvious that there are other things that can be appreciated in them. It's obvious that this comic shows what can be done to homage the original Japanese source material WITHOUT being offensive, and I would like to encourage MORE of that. If you could read Japanese, perhaps the plot might add more depth to your engagement with the manga?

And please all you non-Japanese news guys stop calling it a "manga" youre not from Japan, just call it a comic and stop trying to sound all worldly sophisticated...lol


Who the HECK do you think you are? Do you KNOW where all of the posters, mods and admins are from? Do you know that people in other countries are allowed to engage with and discuss Japan, even if they aren't from there? Some of the posters here actually live in Japan. Do you know that "manga" is a loan word in English? Regardless, if you want the site to make changes, how about PMing the staff, or engaging with them in less caustic manner?

Egads, you've made ME sound like Burn when he responds to ME...

Actually, when I teach my Japanese kids to talk about Japanese food, there are times when the loan word or another term are at odds or provide a difficult choice as to what to use. For example, I elicit "Japanese curry" instead of "curry rice" due to the loan word being incorrect ("curry WITH rice"), not necessarily accurate (it might have bread or noodles with it) and outside Japan, or within the context of different world curries (i.e., international conversation).

That and I'm a curry snob and believe that no matter how good it is (and there is an amazing place near my flat in Japan that does the BEST Chicken Katsu Curry with a MASSIVE glass of beer, if anyone wants to come and join me for it in Japan, PM me), it will ALWAYS be beneath Indian/British Indian curry...

Oh, bugger, I'm off topic again. Hang on, no I'm not, it's just a segway to the ideas of Japanese food, as shown in the latest Overlord comic!

Yatta!

*Eyebrow twitches*

Technically, Sushi isn't always raw fish (that's Sashimi). I think it CAN be done with raw fish, but it's not a necessity.

And yes, PrimalXConvoy, katsu curry is delicious. At least, the ones I've tried are, I'm sure if I went to Japan and had a proper one it'd knock the ones I've had into a cocked hat.

Well this thread took an odd turn didn't it? It pleases me to see that glorious fan mode (wait...is it still a fan mode if it appears in official fiction but isn't listed in instructions?)

@Rated I don't know why but I get the feeling you only brought up that comment about "manga" just to see what reaction you get. Also, if you think these are only good if they are ecchi then again, I think you're fishing ;-)

@PrimalXConvoy if I ever got to visit Japan I would take you up on that offer but sadly that's one thing that won't come to pass :-P (cost and partner who is scared of flying)

So if I understand this correctly, Overlord has a new power: creating a copy of both the Megajet and Gigatank for Mega to use (TakaraTomy version, mind you, the Hasbro one is nowhere in sight). Fair enough, and both can combine...

This sounds more and more like a Super Robot anime or Mecha Tokusatsu. If anything, the "shoes" remind me of Chou Chou ToQ-Daioh from Ressha Sentai ToQger, made from the same type of part (the "pants") :lol:

Meanwhile, everyone ignore Cab in page 2, bottom right panel...

I dont hate fun. We just dont agree on whats "fun". I liked the last comic which was a little more seductive. That was fun.

Did I spell "Hentei" wrong? Maybe because Im not Japanese. So im not going to start calling comics "mangas" either. Ill stick to my native language, thank you. Using foreign words to replace perfectly good English words doesnt make me any more or less of a fan. Its kind of silly.

Firstly, I've added a punctuation mark to "your own language", for clarity. Secondly, "manga" IS an English word, as it's in the English dictionary:

- https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/manga

This type of word is known as a "loan word":

- https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/loanword

In Japan, they also use such words, which is why they have "intaneto" ("internet"), etc.

However, if you wish to only use "your own language", does that mean you are going to cease using ALL loan words from now on, such as "cafe" (French), "et cetera" (Latin), "trans" (Greek) and "form" (derived from Latin)? If not, what historical or cultural period will you draw the line at for your lexical cull?

I must warn you, though, that institutions bigger than yourself have tried to stave off lexical evolution, and failed:

- http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne ... glish.html

- http://pinyin.info/news/2005/ban-loan-w ... rth-korea/

- https://japantoday.com/category/feature ... ns-malaise

- http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=5336

Personally, if you REALLY want to start talking about linguistic purity, then as a British EFL teacher, I'd be more than happy to teach you to speak BRITISH English, so that you cease using "incorrect", "foreign" non-British English.

No? Didn't think so.

Dude, English (especially American English) is a melting pot of so many words that originated from a ton of other languages.

In America, the word "manga" refers to only one certain kind of comics, as not all comics are manga in America. Every Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, and other major bookstore chain in America uses the word "Manga" as an official category to refer to that specific kind of comics, just as they use the category "Graphic Novel" to refer to the kind of comics that are sold bound in think volume collections rather than single issues. Even public libraries use "Manga" for their Manga sections.

It's no different than how the word "Sedan" is used to refer to a specific type of car as not all cars are Sedans (and it's not a brand name either, so you can't use that excuse to argue its being different from "Manga" also not being a brand name). The word "Sedan", like the word "Manga", is non-English in origin, being an Italian-derived word. English absorbed "Sedan" from the Italian language into its vocabulary just like it did for the word "Manga" from the Japanese language.

Why is one foreign language word acceptable to you but not another? By your logic, if every English word borrowed from another language ought to be removed from the English language, then the English language as we know it would be pretty bare-boned (or not even exist at all) since the very language itself is rooted entirely in foreign languages: Latin, French, Germanic, Greek, and more.
