Another hint from Jaffar reaction that Sinbad world is not as good as it looks like.

This chapter was literally;

"Wow, you're alive!" - [Insert a character here]
"Yeah, I'm alive" - Alibaba

Repeat twice.

Ja'far's reaction was really ominous, yeah. >.> I hope my cinnamon bun didn't go through too much.

The chapter was priceless tho. Grown up Pipirika was a treat to see. Ja'far's and Sinbad's new clothe designs are simply 10/10. Even tho I wanted Sinbad in a suit.

And, even after 3 busy years, Ja'far and Sinbad are still hilarious as ever. I wonder what happened to Hakuryuu, Morg and Aladdin. And Kougyoku. Especially Kougyoku, lol.

I died when this whole futuristic setting was revealed and I died again when Ja'far appeared in his new outfit


'Cause it's fine as fuck, holy shit

About seeing Sinbad again... well, let's just say I have mixed feelings. He looks good, has a fancy new outfit (slit is until like two centimeters below his crotch but okay no complaints there :'D), and he seems to be doing well, being called the greatest inventor in the universe and all

Yet I wonder if he's the same Sinbad we've grown to love. Ja'far agreed with his policies and was completely faithful to him, but only for 99,5%. There was still a slight uneasiness hiding beneath his loyal demeanor. His past definitely plays a part in that, but I think it also meant he knew what Sinbad was capable of. To me, it's almost like this new Ja'far is a symbol of the old dressed in the new (quite literally), because they have to hide the shreds. If that makes sense

Sinbad really meant well. He really wanted to change the world for the better. But everyone of us agrees you can't do it to that degree in just 3 years. And we saw he wasn't entirely his old self anymore when he was with Arba/Hakuei

I have a feeling Sinbad ripped the world apart and build a freaking shiny mushroom over it, but underneath it the old world is still part alive, just actively getting crushed because SINBAD wants change THIS way

There's even theories speculating he gave up Ja'far to do it, and the Ja'far we see now is a clone

BUT DYING THRICE IS FINE

Whatever happens, I just hope Ja'far makes it out alive at the end ;A;

I find the clone speculation hilarious, lol. I can kinda see where it comes from tho.

The first thing on Sinbad's list is always his friend/the people he care about. They're the main reason why he wants to change the world. If he forsakes Ja'far, his close friend/right hand man, in the process, then there's no point in his ambition. He himself, before the time skip, said that he hasn't lost his will and original goal. That, although he's one with David, he still has a mind of his own.

Ofc, Sinbad's methods are still questionable, so that might be the reason for Ja'far's pause. >.<

I love Ja'far's outfit so much.

"Ja'far you haven't changed" makes me think maybe they found a way to actually prevent the body from aging. I mean with how advanced the world is now its very likely.

Pipirika! Thats one character I do not have to worry about in the SnB manga. Dang she looks really hot now. <3

Here:

It starts with Alibaba talking with some receptionist, who tells him
that the President of the Sindria company, Sinbad, has a busy schedule
and he'll have to wait 8 months for an appointment.

Alibaba says that he already waited 3 years and cannot wait 8 months to meet Sinbad or something like that.

Just as he's talking he notices an Immuchak (he doesn't recognize
Pipirika) and she's the one who recognizes him. She wonders how it's
possible that he's alive, that they were told that he's dead. She's the
one who reminds him that she was one of Jaafar's assistants.She tells
him she's Jaafar's right hand now.

She then calls Jaafar on the shell phone, and they both go to meet him.
Same thing happens, Jaafar is surprised to see that Alibaba is alive.
Long story short he tells him that he can manage to get a meeting with
Sinbad, only for 30 minutes since he's so busy.

After that they head to Sinbad's office. And when Sinbad sees Alibaba
the same thing happens again, he's surprised to see that Alibaba is
alive etc.

And the chapters ends.


*Someone else's summary*

So basically, what I said in my first post.


Also, they praised Sin as 'the world's greatest innovator'. Gotta remember that. :^ )

Which sites have this chapter already uploaded? Could someone tell me, please?

@Abyss333: Please don't double-post. Also, could you cut back on the All-Caps?

I dunno. But mangafox hasn't updated and it's normally the site that uploads new chapters first, if not one of the sites.

However~ The fully translated chapter(bearing in mind that there will be grammar mistakes) here: http://imgur.com/a/AAI44

Credits go to the people that translated.

Wow we get to see Pipirika as a focused on character in the main series? Nice :D

Holy shit Sin and Jaafar are friggin big shots now lol

But ur telling me Sin didn't know about Yunan taking Alibaba's body and his possible revival? I can't believe that just yet. It's Sin! he probably has everything under his keikaku....r-r-right?

If he really didn't know and that wasn't acting then color me surprised.

PS. Hafar and Sin have too much friggin swag right now lol

Lol, I just find it amusing how they react about finding out Alibaba is alive this chapter. Seems like a steady pacing so far. I'm really curious to see what else happened to the other major characters though.

Finally the man of the hour Sinbad, appears!

It's about damn time Pipirika made an appearance in the main story, hopefully we'll see more of her.

I'm really digging Ja'far's new design, it's way better than his old one.

This new arc and setting is incredibly jarring so far.

I can understand why people may think the jump in technological is stupid and don't like the timeskip because of it. I don't hate it but it's pretty jarring :/
