And here we have the end of Tetsuya volume 1. It's good. The last two chapters really made this manga worth it, even if the first couple were a tad questionable.
Ultimately, this chapters forms a clear cut ending of the arc with no real cliff hangers. Tetsuya and Kondou part ways, and the gambling parlor is closed, What next, you ask? Spoilers: nothing you haven't already seen in the anime. Hate to disappoint, but from Volume 2 onward, the manga seems to follow the anime very closely, at least for a few volumes.
Speaking of the next few volumes, if I keep going at this current pace it will take me 20 years to complete the entire manga. So I better hurry up. For all we know, apocalypse happens in December of 2012 and then we'll never get to read the whole thing!
As always, Crump and Kazu have done wonderfully, even with their busy schedules. Kazu in particular does like a million other series at the same time and often does hundreds of pages per day. Now that's dedication.
