I have to say...

  • This is definitely the cutest graphic novel so far. :) (Admin 03:56, 16 October 2007 (EDT))
    • I'd definately agree with you there. We have a pokemon Hiro! LOL.--MiamiVolts (talk) 04:00, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Chuffa chuffa! I loved Kensei's o_o; face when he sees the bear. This is bringing my full-on weeaboo persona out. XD --AvadaNella 08:42, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
        • Excuse my teenage lingo, but this graphic novel was completely retarded. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 19:27, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
          • I've kind of got to agree. While it certainly is cute and fun and different, I can't help feeling like we got cheated out of the real story. It also doesn't help that I really intensely dislike 90% of all anime and anime-like stuff.--Hardvice (talk) 19:52, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
            • I thought it was cute. I wouldn't want them to do that kind of thing a lot, but one time out of about 50 wasn't bad for me. :) (Admin 20:00, 16 October 2007 (EDT))
              • I'm not a fan of anime, but I really enjoyed this GN. It was cute and light, and moreover, it was a really unique and inventive way of portraying another one of the trials. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:28, 16 October 2007 (EDT)
                • I have got to say, in true nerd fanboy style... "Worst. Graphic Novel. Ever." Having said that, it as pretty cute, and it's Heroes, I automatically love it. --Conspiracy Unit 06:11, 18 October 2007 (EDT)


How can you get rid of the 250px caption?

  • That template just takes the filename (i.e. File name.jpg) instead of the wiki syntax for specifying an image. On another note the main image for the graphic novel should be captured from the graphic novel itself, so the image you added there will end up being changed anyway. (Admin 04:18, 16 October 2007 (EDT))

Black Bear

"Sakashita" is spelled wrong. They spelled it with two ks. We should probably have a redirect. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 05:54, 16 October 2007 (EDT)


No word about how Hiro looks like?? Isn't it a bit strange and worth noting?

  • Yeah, I think the fact that Kensei's panda/thing companion was named Hiro is worth a mention. --Piemanmoo 04:56, 18 October 2007 (EDT)
    • The first line of the summary reads "Takezo Kensei and his small panda-like companion, Hiro,"--Hardvice (talk) 05:05, 18 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Actually, I'd say Hiro looks very similar to a Tanuki[1]. -- Paronine 15:58, 29 October 2007 (EDT)
        • I don't know quite what he is, but a Panda is not the first animal I would compare him to, since he has a long tail and cat-like ears. I'd go with cat-like. Any objections?--E rowe 11:56, 7 November 2007 (EST)

So no one else caught the purpose of this GN?

Remember how Hiro was added to Charlie's photo? I'm pretty sure this is the same effect, but in Takezo Kensei legend form. Legends get twisted and turned as we've seen, so Hiro is a little bear who shouts "I DID IT!" =P--Riddler 06:32, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Still, it is the worst one yet. I was hoping that we would get one that explained how Syler went from the cabin to roadkill.--ASEO 17:14, 18 October 2007 (EDT)
  • It's possible to "get it" and still not like it.--Hardvice (talk) 17:29, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

What is Chuffa chuffa?

What does this mean? Does anyone actually say this? Is this a sound? Twinotter 19:49, 21 October 2007 (EDT)
