Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Fifth and final Tales of Symphonia manga released. I can't believe the manga's run is finally over!

Tales of Symphonia Volume 5
WARNING: Spoilers ahead

General Information

Symphonia manga scans
I have put up Tales of Symphonia Manga: Volume 4: Scans here. Mizuho has put up scans and a scanlation of the second book. I do not have other scans, nor do I know of any other places you can obtain scans or scanlations, though I would be very grateful if you do know and were willing to share the information.

Use of official manga artwork and scans
Please feel free to use the scans I've put up for icons, image editing and whatever you please. I'm not a stickler for credit, but it would be appreciated.

Acquiring the Symphonia manga
I do not know where you can acquire the Symphonia manga in your area, but I would follow Mizuho's advice (see top of page) with regard to trying Kinokuniya, YesAsia, Amazon.jp, and Akadot, which also sells the Extra Load Symphonia manga.

Now on to the REAL BUSINESS:

Kratos got a lot of love:

Look at the stars, see how they shine for you:

Possibly my favourite colour image in the entire series: Kratos and baby!Lloyd.

I've always been terribly fond of gang!pictures, and this one's no exception.
I wonder where everybody's going!

Opening scene:

Aaaaand Someone's Back!

Mithos isn't too pleased with Zelos's sudden turnaround.
Not that Zelos is bothered, of course:

Colette faints from all the excitement. (J/K)

Colette and Mithos: Separated at birth?

I never realised quite how alike they looked until that panel.

Warning Once Again: Even More Spoilers

Kratos and Lloyd:

This is so Don't walk away!

I don't know about you, but I found this scene really heartrending:

I thought it was so sad for Lloyd to lose his father so soon after finding him. Not that he really lost Kratos in the permanent sense, but still.

And ow the flashbacks of baby!Lloyd running to Kratos. Breaks my heart in the best possible way.

Kratos and Yuan share an awful lot of moments.
I'm not naturally a Kratos/Yuan fan by inclination, but this could really change my mind:

Yuan restoring Kratos with his mana.
I've always had lots of really bad thoughts about that.

I find it so amusing how Yuan's... almost... reassuring Lloyd that Kratos is going to be okay.

And Yuan supporting Kratos! *grin*

Yggdrasil playing Musical Bodies. Or Musical Chairs with the party's bodies.

It may be just me, but it seems as if Mithos has the market cornered on Absolutely Batshit Crazy.

And now we move on to mind games:

You are the Wind Beneath My Wings:

...quite literally, too.

Matel makes an appearance:

When the journey's over:

This page made me really happy:

And so it ends.

I love the panel where Kratos cut off Lloyd's "father" and patted Lloyd on his head XD I love Kratos and Lloyd even more after reading these! Thank you so so much for the scans!!!

I think Zelos died in the official novel?
So Zelos is dead according to the novel, drama CD, and TOA; he lives according to the manga and TOF2 lol

I love how the ending! The whole gang (well, minus two people) is traveling around the world again :D And Zelos lives! WOOT!

XD! I imagine Kratos thinking, "Don't call me father. You make me feel OLD." Well... older than he actually is, which is really saying something. ;)

XDD!! I loved Kratos and Lloyd even more after these, too! ♥ I didn't even think it were possible!

You're most welcome! *beams* I'm so glad you enjoyed the scans! ;)

XDDD I came to Symphonia very very late, so I'm completely unfamiliar with what happens in the novels and drama CDs, etc. But thank you for letting me know!

omg ToA. You mean that random guy who gets knocked out and says, "Ze...los... di...ed..."? XD I ignore him! I put it down to ravings of a scrambled consciousness! XDDD

I love the ending, too! ;) I almost wish Mithos hadn't been batshit crazy and he could've joined them all in the world tour! It might have fixed his batshit craziness! Maybe even given us Lloyd/Genis/Mithos! ;)

YAY for Zelos surviving! ;) It probably made me as happy as the cuteness of baby!Lloyd and Kratos.

"Lloyd, don't call me dad, I am only 4000 years old! I am too young to be a father!" XD Kratos does look young though; in the beginning of the game I thought Kratos would be Lloyd's brother or something.

Which also reminds me, Kratos was telling Lloyd "don't die before me" when he handed Lloyd the locket... the scene is really touching and all, but... isn't it kind of impossible for Lloyd to outlive Kratos? XD I mean, Kratos seems to stuck at 20 something years old (or have a incredibly long life span), and Lloyd seems to age like normal people... lol

Still, it's interesting how we might never have a cannon ending for Zelos.
Sometimes I don't know who I sympathize with more, Asch or Zelos. At least Asch got to take his anger out of his replica, and he died after resolving his conflicts. But Zelos died without any salvation.
... That's why you've got to live Zelos >_> I hate this kind of emo endings!

Mithos is... He's supposed to be a tragic hero, but he's so out of his mind that I never quite understand him.

>> he lives according to the manga and TOF2
This is news that requires I dance a little jig. <3
