Sun-Ken Rock level 105 to 115 quick reviews on Batoto
Since 10 or so chapters in Sun-Ken Rock, wherever I go I see people complaining about the “slow-paced storyline” or “lack of content”. I didn’t think much of it till now except maybe for some punctual attempt to right some too obvious lack of perceptions.
But I finally went through with it and went ahead to write a big wall of text containing short summaries/reviews of the important points that a reader in haste could have missed.
They are for level 105 to 115 and their sole aim is to help people have a better understanding of this awesome and gorgeous manga that is Sun-Ken Rock. Here, the art dimension is purposely put aside as to help you focus on the story itself. I know that Boichi’s stunning art can be too much for some and simply shut down any kind of understanding.
Anyways, enough rambling. If you are interested, just go to this discussion thread on Batoto’s related Sun-Ken Rock forum.

Back in the game!
So yeah, some of you might have seen but sunkenrock.com has been running a bit slow on news and release lately. This is due to the fact that I’ve been busy out of my mind and with the finals added to it scanlation simply didn’t have a place anymore in my daily schedule.
But worry not! If all goes well, this week should bring you 2 chapters of Sun Ken Rock (level 114 and 115), chapter of Momo no Musume and the third hunt of H.E.
Hope this will be enough to make myself forgiven. Stay tuned.
So it’s already been over a year since I switched to SKR.com’s V2 by bringing the site over to wordpress.com. It was like a revolution for me after working with the dying combo MobileMe/iWeb. This V3 is the occasion for you to shape SKR.com to your wish but we’ll talk about it at the end of this post.
As some of you might know, I’ve been really busy lately, one of the reason was that I had 27 hours of WordPress class last week. That’s why I’m taking the opportunity of my newfound knowledge to bring SKR.com from wordpress.COM to wordpress.ORG. If you don’t know what’s the difference, please refer to this article.
So here’s the deal: I’ve started setting SKR.com’s V3 on a self-hosted wordpress.org. It’ll be sharing Japanzai’s server so performance will be at the top. The site itself is mainly functional, all the content is there. However, I need to readjust, update the articles/pages and add the necessaries plug-ins. This will take some time so the final transition will be either on christmas or new year.
I’m also taking this occasion to ask your opinion on what you’d like to see on this V3. Just post it in this post’s comments, not on the V3. I’ll update the following list with those I find interesting and cross it once implemented.
– Go to SKR.com’s V3 –
- “like this”
I’m taking the chance of the recent surge in visits brought by the release of Sun-Ken Rock level 106 to run a little survey for SunKenRock.com.
So give a piece of your mind!
What would you like to see on SKR.com? Something is missing? A page needs updating? Some grammatical error? Or even if you just like the site and want to say it, voice your opinion! I’ll do my best to shape these feedback into something that everybody can enjoy.
I introduce you a new page: Did you notice?
Boichi often add cameo and crossover in his manga, I’ll list on that page all those I can find. I already added a few I remembered from the top of my head but if you know some that I missed, feel free to say it in the comment.
If you are Italian or can read italian, you might be interested to know that J-Pop (Sun Ken Rock’s Italian Editor) offers the first volume of Trigun if you buy Sun Ken Rock volume 12.

Just so you know, Sun Ken Rock volume 12 is published with Trigun – The Lost Plant as a bonus story at the end of the volume
