Finished reading vol. 6... I don't even know the words to describe this feeling. Cried twice, but before that I felt awe and the joy of life all over again.>>2571381
To be honest I felt the same way at first, but then I was reminded that this series is really too good to be consigned to the mists of memory. I don't know when, but I think the earlier chapters will definitely be worth experiencing again.
A few things came to mind as I came to the end of the volume:>>2563912
1. This was the first afterword pic which featured Chito and Yuuri instead of Gon (tkmiz's dog) and tkmiz's avatar. The pic is definitely appropriate, but it makes me wonder in the end how much impact Gon's disappearance really had on the story. (As mentioned in previous threads, he disappeared the month before the Kettenkrad story).
2. There were a couple of sidestories which were never scanlated nor collected into tankoubon (and even appear to have been unlinked from the main SSR manga page, so it seems like they might disappear any second).http://www.kurage-bunch.com/manga/shojoshumatsu/other_01/http://www.kurage-bunch.com/manga/shojoshumatsu/other_02/
The first contains a bit of lore about robot hieroglyphs which seems like it could have minor importance to the story; while the second contains some cute yuri-ish (?) mother-father roleplay. It'd be a bit concerning if these were lost.
