Thoughts on this manga?

Since the Manga and the Anime have diverged so greatly, I though a discussion topic was needed for just the manga. I for one, am getting a bit lost with new ships showing up in almost every chapter. However, the plotlines run deep and I am enjoying the wonderful depth of the story so far. I am interested in hearing other readers thoughts on the story.

I haven't read the series yet either, I like to wait for it to come out in print (which isn't until mid-2014), but it's on my "must read" list, especially after watching the anime, I knew there must have been major differences in the story line.
Edit: I should also add, I also sometimes get a little confused with the mass amount of characters, who's on who's side. I have to keep open the wikia page so I can keep double checking, and I've often had to re-watch episodes. So, you're not alone

They had a promotional setup for Arpeggio at Kinokuniya when I went in there a few weeks ago. I believe it's up to Volume 8 now. IMHO buy the original volumes and read the fan translations. They're current afaik.

The anime does indeed diverge heavily from the manga. Most likely due to the fact planning for the anime started like 2 years ago, they had no idea it would be this popular, and a 1 cour show needs a far more focused plot than the manga offers.

The manga jumps between so many different factions of people at this point, it just wouldn't be feasible for anything less than 2 cours. 4 would be better, even.

I have been reading a lot, up to about 22 I think. I watched the Anime first. so far I wish they followed the manga a bit more truly, but at the same time if they go for a second season and incorporate the stuff they left out, a lot of people will be going "NANI?!"

So far pretty good read really hope they do another season, still unclear with how the anime left off unfortunately.

I must say the Manga is much better then the anime story wise......But I did feel the politics side of it slowed it down to much

So, this is now a Crunchyroll simulpub! It looks like Iona is currently


The chapter also includes a spotlight on one of Iona's sister submarines and another mental model who appears to work for her.

The first three volume are now up on Crunchyroll, wonder when that happened. Reading through it, I see what what people mean when they said the anime was diverging a lot from the manga. I'm also wondering if CR and Seven Seas are working together on this, since Seven Seas is doing a print release later this year. Seems a little redundant to hire someone to translate and edit it twice.
