Simoun Manga - Downloads and Discussion

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Tue Aug 10, 2010 9:32 pm

Much like the doujin thread, this thread is going to be for me to share the book form links of all the known Simoun manga that I have. I'm only missing one manga, and if anyone has the copy of it, I'd love to have it. I've never seen an English version for it, but I do know there's a Japanese copy on the 'net. I used to have it and I have no idea what happened to it. Details below.

Book form downloads:

Book of Helical Motors - Released as one of the bonus manga with the limited edition set of the PS2 game, it places the girls in a sort of private school and focuses on Neviril's concerns for her future.

Magical Biyuden - Released by Megami, it is a parody of Simoun using battle sticks and strange adaptations of some anime scenes. It's really far out there, and mainly focuses on Aaeru and her appearance at the academy. Also, she doesn't take kindly to girls kissing. You'll see. Not for those who have a hard time with parodies that really poke fun.

Official Manga - Released originally as three separate chapters in yuri-hime magazine, it's now been compiled into one volume. It tells a slightly different story than the anime, giving us a glimpse at another story that focuses on Aaeru trying to get Neviril to be her pair and fly again. Beautifully drawn, but personally those Sibylla dresses that we see are terrible compared to the ones in the anime.

Note: This book form uses the ending for chapter 1 and the beginning for chapter 2 that was published in the compilation, rather than the original ones that are available when you download the file from lililicious. I have, however, included sections after the intermission that label these as the original because I felt they needed to be included.

??? Manga - This is the one I am missing. It's the second book that was released with the limited edition of the PS2 game. It focuses on mostly Paraietta and Kaimu discussing something, and its cover has Aaeru and Neviril floating in water. If anyone has this, please send me a copy of it. I would love to have this last piece in digital form.

Note: All book forms are created using MSWord 2003 and should work in any form of Office. If not, let me know and I'll see what I can do to help you out.

I'd also like to use this thread for discussion of any of the manga listed above. If you've got something to say, discuss, or comment, post a reply. I'm sure there are plenty of us who would like to talk about it with you. Just make sure we know which manga you are referring to!

Would that be the official Yuri-hime manga, or the parody Megumi manga?

The parody Megumi manga. Judging from it's description, I'm in for a real treat. Very Happy

Oh, it's good for a laugh. Now if it were used as is, but given a serious twist, I think it'd be pretty good.

lol Well, I'm gonna read it before my slumber. I'll give my thoughts on it next time I'm online. Simoun is pretty serious, so it'll be refreshing to experience some humor in this. Thank you again!

Just some fanservice for the readers. <3

Lesbians? That's gross!

Wow.

I have to admit, this was a most entertaining read. First off, the art is extremely beautiful. Second, I'm used to the more confident Aaeru than a very arrogant one. lol This incarnation of Aaeru did make me laugh on several occasions despite her pushiness so all is forgiven. In the early going, nothing was more satisfying than seeing Aaeru and Paraietta have their cat-fights. Rimone also impressed me with her new found assertiveness. I showed this to a couple of friends who didn't give Simoun a proper chance and surprisingly they understand Simoun a little more. I'm not going to complain about how short this book was like my best friend did. Parodies are normally short one-shots (better off in some cases), I'm just glad they took the time to make a Simoun spoof with funny outfits and extended exaggerations of their canon personalities.

Thank you for sharing, Sibylla Aaeru. Very Happy

XD Yes, the parody is quite a trip. I enjoyed the premise and setting behind it though and it could make for an interesting alternate version of Simoun. Regardless of Aaeru's arrogance, I still really liked her, and Neviril amused me too

It's been awhile since I've updated this. Good news though! It seems that Magical Biyuden was completed last fall, and chapters 4 and 5 are now available. Unfortunately, I have not put them into book format just yet so I can't give that link. A quick search on the 'net will help you find it though if you're super curious.
