C.T. Smith is badass. There just isn't enough of him in these books. Need more Smith!

I've been trying to refrain from comparing this to Bleach, but there were many elements in Zombie Powder, Vol. 3 : Pierce Me Standing in the Firegarden that had me constantly thinking of Bleach. I wish I didn't do that, but I just can't help it.

Balmunk reminds me of a cross between Mayuri Kurotsuchi and Szayelaporro Grantz. I don't care much for those characters, so needless to say, I'm not fond

Not that the concept isn't weird enough, a trio of people chasing after the mythical (and dangerous) Rings of the Dead, which when put together make powered life force that can make a person immortal, but in this volume things get really weird as Gamma (S-class criminal and chainsaw sword wielder), Elwood (former thief and knife thrower on a mission to bring his older sister back from the dead) and Smith (mysterious, gun slinging, suit wearing master fighter) face down the weirdest troupe of cir ...more

Tite Kubo, Zombiepowder, vol. 3: Pierce Me Standing in the Firegarden (ViZ, 2000)

I was quite fond of the first two volumes of Tite Kubo's short-lived first manga, Zombiepowder, but the penultimate volume gets kind of derailed. It's still interesting in the sense that in some of the new enemies, you can see ideas that he would end up reviving a few years later in Bleach (specifically, some of the enemies here reminded me of folks who showed up in the soul society), but Kubo already knew, I think,

Este tomo me gusta bastante más porque Eliwood deja de ser un inútil. Típico que tienes el amigo al que siempre tienes que salvar, pero aquí Eliwood se encarga de deshacerse de su propio estigma. El niño pelea y gana, digo, ya era ganancia que supiera arrojar cuchillos, pero que además sea listo el muchacho... Sigue el arco del circo que esta bastante interesante pero muy largo y con muchos personajes que se ven ligeramente geniales pero que solo salen medio segundo porque o mueren o desaparecen ...more

Only 1 more volume to go and then it's over.

Things with Gamma are just getting interesting, with him turning into something in the middle of a fight. Each member of our group has a battle to overcome and we are left with a cliffhanger during Wolfina's fight.

I liked that Elwood showed compassion during his fight and put the fire out before it consumed his enemy. And can I just say, I think that C.T. Smith should have his own series?? He's so badass!

I didn't like this one as much as Volumes 1 and 2. It seems like less happened in this volume. There was a lot more action, which was sometimes kind of hard to understand. C.T. Smith wasn't in it as much either, though Elwood did have a very awesome scene.

Of course, it certainly wasn't -bad-. I still love the series, the art, and the characters. Looking forward to the final installment!

Really enjoying this - especially the little minor character profiles at the end of each chapter, which are cracking me up. One more volume to go. :(

I really enjoyed Bleach, Tite Kubo's other manga, but I wasn't as impressed. However, I do really love the artwork.

In this volume, Tite Kubo's message starts to appear in the same way it does in Bleach. Do you know what it is?
