Like most Manabe’s works, it blends sci-fi with a few fantasy pieces – the swordsmen concept penetrates his numerous mangas. The manga is effortlessly read through containing a lot of comedy and ecchi components. It is really considered one of his most important works – eight volumes.
A very similar story is Caravan Kidd manga (1986) established on an Earth-like planet. Wataru escaped from household for new impressions and met Babo, an immoral businessman and his future companion within their suspicious promotions.

Dragon Princess Karula, of its Olzen dynasty, arrives towards the imperial town of Belgorand for alleged ceasefire but truly to assassinate Emperor Gustav. In her escape Karula loses her dearest.

Sadly, a few of his works like Capricorn (1988), Wild Kingdom (2000), Ginga Sengoku Gunyuuden Rai (Galaxy Warring Condition Chronicles, 2004) weren’t translated into English. Just a Capricorn-based OAV was shot and translated.
Galaxy Warring Point out Chronicles may be the writer’s most significant manga with 27 volumes. The hero, Rai, starts being a galaxy army soldier trying to unite all of the galaxy and takes on a huge spaceship with brave close friends. A 52-piece TV series, Thunder Jet, was shot once the manga and we hope it’ll even be released in English.
