Bazalta is a combat association, in which the combatants, or Rankers, are ranked according to their strength. The higher rank you get, the more wealth, fame and power you get, and you may even get the ability to change the world. In short, in Bazalta, "strength is everything".
Zig, a young boy from Cantalera, a wandering tribe where fighting and wanting to become stronger is prohibited; after his father fell victim of some monsters, decides to train against the tribe rules, and seeing how despite his training he couldn't save the inhabitants of the tribe from the monsters, he decides to set off on a journey to join Bazalta and make his way to the top.
Alright, Last Ranker is a manga based off a PSP RPG, and by that I don't mean pressure sensitive paint or a rocket propelled grenade, and honestly? Either one of those would have made it better. How? By either painting over the damn thing or just using the rocket propelled grenade to blow it up.
As a side note some of you may be thinking, Pressure Sensitive Paint? There really aren't many things other than psp's which use that acronym, unless you think Pennsylvania state police would've been a better choice?
For the most part this series is good, it progress's a little too fast and the plot is far too predictable, even for someone like me, who really doesn't see things coming. At the same time the story pulls a lot of stuff from nowhere. And when I said a lot, I mean a lot.
The art... Isn't bad. all the characters but the main character look a little generic, but their outfits look kind of nice, I think. I can't really tell if this artwork is good or not. It's a little weird like that.
The characters... are the worst. Kirito from Sword Art Online get's more character development than every single character in this entire manga. I mean it. This is literally... the absolute worst.
As for enjoyment? I WAS enjoying it, all the way up to the end, I relaxed into my cheap office chair, put one leg over the other, cleaned my teeth and casually started reading, it was... alright, certainly not the best I had read, and sure some things were predictable, but, I could look past that! I went downstairs got my first(technically third) coffee of the day, and casually sipped away, my hand setting down every five seconds to reach out, and then, in the middle of my weak two thirds milk one fifth sweetener one fifth coffee mixture, it ended. To be continued! it said on the last few pages, I put down my coffee and googled it.
I asked the Internet quietly, uh hey do you know where I can get the continuation of this manag? It's been dropped, go play the game idiot! But- What you thought that there was more? But- What a noob, it's only 15 in cash on E-bay! You broke!? But- HAHAHAHAHA! Lol. But I don't have a PSP and it's in Japanese... What a ******** he doesn't even know Japanese or want to import something from japan! You're not a true fan anyway, HAHAHAHAH- Oi internet! What!? You suck.
Overall? I'd give it a seven, It was fun. But... That ending... read more
