Can't remember the name of a series.... [ANSWERED]

Post by DaGrump on Fri Sep 14, 2012 8:55 pm

Read a few chapters while recovering a while back, and can't recall the title.

Story has protagonist who just wants to fight, transfers to a school that has all the fights he wants (or so he thinks). He doesn't know that that he has to swear an oath (allegience -- very specific wording in oath) to a handler. Day one he rescues a "zero rank" handler, ends up as her chevalier(?). I seem to remember he ends up with a balance beam (or other ridiculously long) weapon to fight with, as most other fighters have a power of some sort.

Anyway, ring any bells? Medications have certainly rung mine.......................

No, not Busou Renkin.

read on Batoto or MangaReader while recovering from surgery. May be a series that has not been updated on either site for quite a while? Unfortunately, a lot that I seem to get interested in have that happen...........................

Opening is of guy coming into school, sees girl (zero) about to get hit by guy, steps in and clobbers him. She (the zero) tries to get him to swear this oath at this point, but he refuses.

He witnesses a huge explosion, goes to investigate and finds guy (who can control some sort of flame) and his "queen" (for lack of a better term) who are fairly high ranked, and they've just killed somebody in the explosion (maybe?).

Anyway, he ends up with the rank zero, as her protector (everyone apparently has to be "paired"), and they are forced to square off against explosion guy. He figures out he just needs to be above the flames (hence the balance beam or whatever it is) and ends up clocking the guy with it, breaking arm and ribs, etc.

Because of his nature, now he has two to protect...........................at least until flame guy gets back.

I seem to remember there being elaborate ritual for the oth, winning, surrendering, etc..............................

Remember, I was (and still am) on some heavy-duty painkillers at the time, so the story may be a bit fuzzy..............................

Thanks, been trying, still no luck.

Now that I'm off work again (more back surgery), I will have more time to dig. I may have to go title by title though some the sites (I think I read originally on Mangareader -- sorry)

Yeah, the art was fairly well done. Was similar to, but not a copy of some other popular stuff.


I'm also hoping for updates to Kandachime eventually............................

Still working on it. Started from the beginning of the manga list on Mangareader, problem is, I keep finding stuff to browse.........................

I'm off work until at least March 17th, so slowly but surely I will make it through the lists..........

Now, now..............................................

I just started at the beginning of the list (with the numbers). I'm embarassed to say that I am not yet all the way through "A". (Like I said, I keep getting sidetracked. That and I sleep a lot (a lot!).

I open a bunch of titles at a time in tabs, and cycle through, checking descriptions and artwork as I go.

Unfortunately, neither of those titles was the one. I am up to "I" in my quest, though.



And Kandachime finally got updates!!
