I started working in the scanlation world almost 2 years ago with a precise aim: Bring all of Boichi to the world! Quite the grand scheme, isn’t it? After first starting with Sun Ken Rock I was able to gather strength in my quest, mainly thanks to XscansX with would later become the Japanzai that we all know.
Works were completed (Hotel, Lovers in Winter, Space Chef Caisar, etc…) some were created (Feed Yumin, H.E, etc…) but there was only one that I was never able to find and only knew the existence through a blog going by the name of MANga of Taste were it was titled as “Brutality” but is in fact “Toutetsu“. It was only published once in 2007, 5 years ago! This oneshot is 48 pages long and has 2 color pages. We are now in the last sprint to have all of Boichi’s work available in english! Kampai!!
Here’s a synopsis taken from MANga of Taste:
Brutality is actually written by Takeda Yuusuke 竹田雄介, Boichi only did the artwork. Set in a fantasy world based on ancient China, the story is about Fuuren, an armless Defender. Defenders are people who will complete their mission or assignments no matter what. If they accept them, that is. Fuuren has been called to a small town that is about to be taken over by the Ka empire, and they wish to hire him to help their armies defend their little town. However there is a little bit of intrigue within the town itself, and Fuuren accepts a different task altogether…
Toutetsu (饕餮) is a shapeshifting Youma. Thought to be the strongest of all Youma, it can change its shape to what ever it desires.
