On a more news-ish note, vol 22 cover’s up:

https://www.amazon.co.jp/銀牙-LAST-WARS-2 ... 453713898X

Not quite as spectacular as I had hoped, personally, but it’s understandable since Yoshi’s been on a bit of a hiatus. Although I have to wonder... is Sirius’s image with his back to the front supposed to be a implication of him still being all like “suck my ass, I was right and y’all knew it” even at/after his death? XD

Honestly? I feel like this cover and volume 20’s cover should be swapped. Save for Orion not having the sickle with him in 20’s cover it does have Monsoon, as well as all the dogs charging towards Monsoon. Imo it feels more like a “final cover” than this one did.

I wasn’t expecting anything grand though tbh, so I’m not disappointed in any way. And I definitely DON’T hate this cover. Some problems with it? Yeah, personally. But it’s not a bad cover, not in my opinion anyway.

I think the colours used for it are very nice. Imo Orion’s orange and the color of the sky work very well together.

I like the cover... but too much butt. If it faded off at the tail it would look nice and not as awkward.
I'm very curious what the final back illustration will be.

I kinda like this cover. And that we're seeing the back of a main character like this, I like that. XD

Now, just waiting for back and spine. Those are the ones I've always look more forward too. XD
Wait for me; Terrex, Baghéera and Nokorde, when its my time I come

My son looks FABULOUS on this cover! XP Seriously though, I really like this volume cover - it's nicely drawn and I love the starry backdrop.

But is anyone else getting tired of seeing Andy on these covers when he doesn't particularly do much in TLW? Same goes with Bon. I feel like it would make more sense to have Jerome, Akakama, Rigel, Akame or even Gennai on a corresponding volume cover. I honestly think that they've contributed more to the story than Andy at this point. Andy's just... there.

Swiggety swooty, Monsoon be coming for that booty XD

Jokes aside though, I actually like the cover. It's like a tradition in ginga for a soon to be dead character to look like that, maybe it's symbolising Sirius going to heaven? Whatever it is, it's cute :3

Sirius is so beautiful!

If Takahashi really is ending the whole Ginga saga with this volume, I would have liked to see something more epic, like the whole bearhound lineage or Ouu veterans. I put my hopes into the spine and backside images! Or even better, I hope that Takahashi continues Ginga saga!

A friend of mine just got volume 21 and it turns out Weed was not an emotionless robot about his son's death after all.

It makes me happy to see that.

I don’t like Sirius but I still would’ve been disappointed if his OWN FATHER didn’t react to his death.

Is this volume 21 or 22? :0 I thought Sirius died at the very end of TLW?

Unless this is after Monsoon just slaps Sirius into the sky and is when he got injured. Sorry if I'm mistaken :surprisegin:

Either way that's sad as heck. It's good to know he at least cares, it adds more to Sirius' death and Weed, who really has seemed like a robot throughout TLW.

This is right after Sirius was injured. He's still alive here, but I guess it was obvious to Weed that Sirius was fatally wounded

Ah alright! I apologize then xD I misinterpreted it a little. Thank you!

Its still terribly sad. This makes me want to see more reactions about it, like Koyuki's reaction. Though we may never get that. :EMPTY:

I find it weird that Weed gets emotional when Sirius gets critically injured, but then looks at the sky when Sirius actually dies. :EMPTY:

Maybe he saw the death coming since Sirius was so weak after being wounded, so the shock of it could had worn off a bit.
And who knows, some of the characters including him could’ve burst into tears just moments after the ending panel. Maybe Yoshi intended to include that but couldn’t due to supposed tendinitis or simply ran out of time.

That's a good point. I get the feeling that maybe Yoshi wanted to add more to it but couldn't for one reason or another. I think it would have been better had he drawn some tears on everyone in the final panel though, but I respect his situation all the same.

I like the cover but I'm so tired of Bon, Yamabiko and Andy being in the background.. It could be Sirius, Orion, Weed and Gin. All generations in one. Maybe Riki, Shiro and Sirius toghether in the sky. It would be so beautiful... ;n;
