Arcs in G:TLW?

Post by Tora »

Would you say there are Arcs in G:TLW like in GNG and GDW? If so, what woudl they be called?

Here I would say there's been one Arc, where Monsoon attacked Ôu till all of the bears but him where killed by humans. And on a second Arc where Sirius follow Monsson and try to reasona nd talk with him. But what to name them?

I personally always differentiated the arcs in GNG and GDW by the enemy they were fighting. So in GDW, Hougen's time as their main enemy would be one arc and the the next would be Shougun and so on. Here, because Monsoon has been their opponent all along, I would go with the whole thing so far being one single arc ("The Monsoon Arc").

That's just me though. I can also see the argument for splitting it into multiple arcs.

Like within the Akakabuto Arc, there's 3 sub Arcs (Indroduction/human, Journey and the Great Battle). So more wonder if this Monsoon Arc would have those kind of sub Arcs as well mostly actually

Like GDWO, I think GTLW might have mini-arcs within the big main arc; the entire Sirius "befriending" Monsoon could almost be considered a mini-arc, I think (though, maybe that's more of a sub-plot?). But there is definitely one big defined arc on-going right now with Ohu & Friends vs. Big Bad Monsoon.

That's what I was thinking. The first Arc was when Monsoon took over the Paradise. Then this second one after all Monsoon's Kin got killed and Sirius trying to befriend him. Though, what would they be called even?

Oh, you're thinking sub-arcs? Then yeah, there's probably a few. As for what to call them...*scratches chin*. All I can think of is names that sound more like chapter titles, like "Monsoon Attacks", "Sirius's Plan" and "Orion's Training". Things like that.

Hmm... Fallen Paradise Arc for the first one? I only have up to vol 4 to check really (I'm behind with collecting lol). What to call Sirius's tries to befriend Monsoon?

Fallen Paradise sounds like a great title for the first arc. Sirius befriending the bears could be simply Friendship arc. To me it feels more like filler, it took so long to go anywhere. Perhaps it's different now but until we get updated only time will tell

Fallen Paradise is a great name for the first arc! It sets everything up. As for Sirius' attempt to befriend Monsoon, I think it could be called "Sirius' Betrayal" because that's almost what it seems like to everyone else in Ohu, but not quite... maybe there's a better word for it? As for Orion's mini-arc, maybe it could be Orion's Training like Eclipse-Wolven mentioned, or maybe something like Orion's Preparation?? I don't know, haha. Previous Ginga series had defined arcs (GDW for example: Kaibutsu arc, Hougen arc, Monkey arc, Russian arc, Bear arc). GDWO and GTLW are much harder.

"Sirius's Betrayal" sound good. Me and Blivery also talked about "Sirius Problem", "Sirius Difference" as the 2nd arc.

I was thinking there could be an arc about the sickle since the dogs seem to hyper fixate on that dumb item for a while. Could be something called ''Sickle Arc''. I'd say it start around Chapter 48, which is when Akame first grabbed the sickle.
