    Default Pokemon BW: Good Partners

    So, yeah, there is a new manga running in Shogaku 3 (one of Netkun magazines, not the same one that runs PokeSpe, though).

    It's titled "Pokemon BW: Good Partners" (ポケットモンスターB・W グッドパートナーズ), its script is made by Kyouichi Shichigatsu (七月鏡一) and it's illustrated by Chiyo Kenmotsu (険持ちよ).

    The manga is set in Unova and obviously based on BW (character mention Prof. Juniper) but there is one very interesting thing about it - it has original main characters (a boy named Takuro and the girl - Mashiro). Seems very original to me.

    Here are two pictures from this manga:

    http://twitpic.com/45icvf

    No one even noticed that manga, probably because it got outshaded by Reburst. But, to be honest, it looks better than Reburst to me. I'm definitely more interested in this one.

    So, how do you judge its chances for getting tankobonned? (In the past, when Sho 5 and 6 existed, mangas from Sho3 and lower usually died very early. But it may not be the case anymore).

    Also, more details would be appreciated. We know almost nothing about it.

    After 12 years of being a Pokemon fan, I'm officially quitting the fandom. This is not a rage quit and it has nothing to do with the Pokemon franchise. It's also NOT a sudden decision - I've planned it for months but I decided to stay a true, active Pokemon fan until the very last day. The reason for my leave is the fact that I'm starting my studies at the Uni and I decided that it's a perfect moment to move on with my life. I'll never forget all these awesome years and Pokemon will always be a part of my childhood memories. Goodbye friends! Thank you.

    And if I'm ever back, I'm never back for good.

    It's interesting this manga is like Special in the fact that the writer and the illustrator are different people. But wow, I still can't get over how much this manga looks like a fan dōjinshi. O_O It's really surprising! I think I like this manga though. The art style isn't bad and it sounds interesting so far. I definitely plan to keep tabs on it. :3

    I'm glad the manga is still set in Unova and based on BW. (yay Professor Juniper mention!) As much as I like originality I like at least the settings to be familiar to me. I love that it has original main characters though! I wasn't expecting that but I'm glad it does, and I actually like them (at least look and name-wise) as far as I can tell. I hope their personalities are just as likable.

    It's sad no one has really noticed it, but hopefully this thread will help it to get some more recognition. And I completely and utterly agree with your statement about Reburst. It seems a lot better and more interesting than that manga, at least to me. To be honest I've never been that interested in Reburst to begin with, and that lack of interest grew tenfold as soon as I realized the guy could combine with his Pokemon. -_-'

    I have no idea. I would say based on how a lot of Pokemon mangas end up becoming one-shots/non-tankobonned, or only end up lasting for just a few chapters, that it's unlikely; but like you said maybe it won't be the case for this one. For a while now a lot of Pokemon mangas I've been interested in end up lasting for a few chapters and ending suddenly or just become non-tankobonned one shots, so I'm hoping that won't be the case with this one. *fingers crossed*

    I agree. :3 It looks very cute. ^^

    (I do three. ReBurst is just.... .____.)
    "But sometimes I have to ask myself this question. It's true that to us his imaginings are nothing but the inventions of a busy mind. But to him, there simply is no other reality. Furthermore he is happy there.

    So why, I ask myself, why in the name of healing him must we drag him painfully into the world of our own reality?"

    This still feels very shoujo to me. It seems like the boy is a beginner trainer as he doesn't seem to know much about catching pokemon or traveling. The girl seems a bit more experienced in it, so I'm guessing she'll be the "brains" for the group. Maybe they'll going to Araragi for their first pokemon.

    It is cute, but I think ReBurst is bit more unique in its character designs. I like ReBurst's more since it has the right shounen art style rather than the plain one. It's fun to look at. xD It just sucks that the characters' personalities aren't unique.

    As I said in the other topic, I like this art more than the reburst one. Really nice to find out that it's actually a different manga.

    I really don't have anything against shoujos, and it would be funny to see pokemon through this different point of view. :b

    But it has a fair chance of NOT being overly cutesy like Tsukirino's series so I'm giving it a chance.

    Well, I wasn't thinking cutesy as much as fluffy, but I still see your point. I'm willing to give it a chance, if just to see what's the whole thing is about. If only this magazine wasn't so hard to get to a copy of without a subscription...

    New scan!

    Probably the most accurate portrayment of in-game world EVER.

    This manga needs some more, it has potential to become awesome. I hope that Dogasu puts it up too.

    Don't be so quick. It's just second chapter, or so.

    There have been no news regarding new tankobons for a good while.

    We don't know if this manga will ever get tankobonned at all. Or any other BW manga. We must wait for news, I guess they should come soon (most likely Pocket Monsters BW will get tankobonned first of all BW-based mangas. Then we should expect "Hero of Thunder and Fire" and "BW Good Partners" [and "Master Pokemon BW" if this hasn't died yet]. Also, there's ReBurst on the way and that new Asada series).

    Oh man. I want this to be the new "Diamond Pearl Adventure". Something with different main characters, but the Pokemon setting is still there. And I really like the designs for the boy and girl.

    The only thing about this manga that bugs me is a minor quirk of mine in the artwork. Something about how the artist does eyes feels weird to me for Pokemon, and compared to most of the other mangas I read. I could probably get over it granted I could read full chapters of it, but I dunno, it still slightly bugs me.

    Not big enough to not keep tabs on the manga though; it seems interesting so I'll definitely keep my eye on it as long as it's around and I'm interested.

    Yeah, there is no denying ReBurst's designs are a bit more unique compared to this manga. This manga's artwork is still cute though and not too bad. And that is true about the artwork for ReBurst. xDDD It's just more of what I can tell of the story so far that I'm not big on; I didn't know the characters didn't have unique personalities though. (in ReBurst) I must say I'm not surprised though, it feels very generic to me so far in a lot of aspects.

    I don't either, since I read all different kinds of mangas. :3 I don't care what genre a manga is as long as I like it and enjoy it. And I agree that it would be funny (and interesting) to see Pokemon through a shoujo point of view. We've mainly seen kodomo and shonen viewpoints for it so it'll be interesting to see how a shoujo viewpoint of it will go. :3

    Thanks for sharing! Still looks interesting to me. It's odd that Professor Juniper's hair isn't shaded though. xD I'm used to it being slightly shaded and prefer that.

    I agree that this manga needs some more chapters. I'm very curious to see what direction it'll go in after it finishes setting up some more. And I hope he puts it up too, I'd love to read about what's going on in it so far. =D

    New chapter of Good Partners!

    We see Cress, but the other two appear as well, most likely. Pity that karubiimunomono gave us only one scan, this time.

    I really like this manga, it's so unique.

    I'm also withholding a definite judgement, but I can definitely see potential in this manga. It doesn't rush through the game at the speed of light and has a chance to become a pretty long and "complete" series (as long as it gets tankobonned, of course).

    What is this series even about? This seems like a really enjoyable manga to me, but so little is known about it.
