This collection does not have any deviations yet!


Welcome to the group! We're a fan club dedicated to Yuu Watase's shounen manga, Arata Kangatari!

Please feel free to join and submit any Arata related artwork!



Hey everyone! PKR, the group that scanlates Arata Kangatari, needs your help! Their group head and main translator kojika's subscription to Shounen Sunday is about to run out. It costs $150 to renew for 6 months and so the group needs some donations to help cover the cost of renewing the subscription so they can keep bringing you the scanlations. Please consider donating even just a few dollars to help keep them going!

You can donate by visiting their website and clicking the orange "Paypal Donate" button.

Thank you!

What is Arata Kangatari?

Arata Kangatari is Yuu Watase's current shounen manga, running weekly in Shōnen Sunday.

Hinohara Arata is starting fresh at a new school - away from his past bullies and humiliation. But when he arrives and finds his old nemesis, things seem to go back to the way they were. After a seeming betrayal from his new friend, Arata wishes he could disappear - and finds himself in a completely different world, having switched places with another "Arata". Now in this new world he faces both new and old rivals...

Currently this manga is being scanlated by PROJECT Kurai Ryu.

Did anyone esle want to flip a table at what they did to the anime? ._.
Ranefea Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013   General Artist
YES! *kojika and I watched it together every Tuesday and it pretty much became a rant fest. They completely cut out Nagu, the pacing was bad, they merged and cut important events and jumped ahead in so much, none of the emotional events had any impact, most of the characters weren't quite yeah. XD

I know right I'm glad someone agrees
Also if they cut out nagu, I have no idea how they are going to defeat the kisune shou because they defeat him using nagu
Ranefea Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013   General Artist
Exactly!! If they continue on they HAVE to add that in. They CAN'T Do Kikutsune without it! But another big part of the problem with them cutting the story arc in the first place is that is the first arc that takes place after Kannagi joins the group and is when he starts actually bonding with them. Argh!

Ok, so don't feel like the group was ignoring you...other than not being on dA much personally I totally didn't see your comment!

But yeah, that chapter was so good!

Hi there ^^

I just have a really stupid question >////<
Im searching for colored original Arata Kangatari Artworks as references for fanarts but I cant find what Im searching for with google, on Yuu Watases homepage or elsewhere ;__; Does anyone know, where I could find colored original Artworks of Ohika and Fuyou and Seo?
Ranefea Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2011   General Artist
Unfortunately, there isn't THAT much coloured artwork for AraKan. Most of the coloured works are on the covers (which the colors can't fully be trusted anyway because they are more stylized) and there aren't any in the Japanese volumes 1-12 (I checked all the artwork on the inside flaps of the dust jackets). It's possible there are some from Shounen Sunday covers or color inserts, but I can't recall any off hand and covers tend to feature the main characters, anyway. You're probably going to just have to wing it based on the colors we have seen for the others.
