    Description (baka updates) : The story is set in the distant future. The land is ruined, and humanity establishes the mobile fort city Plantation. Pilots produced inside Plantation live in Mistilteinn, also know as the "birdcage." Children live there knowing nothing of the outside world or the freedom of the sky. Their lives consist of battling to carry out missions. Their enemies are mysterious giant lifeforms known as Kyōryū, and the children pilot robots called Franxx to face off against them. For the children, riding the Franxx proves their existence.

    A boy named Hiro is called Code:016, and he was once known as a prodigy. However, he has fallen behind, and his existence seems unnecessary. Not piloting a Franxx is the same as ceasing to exist. One day, a mysterious girl known as "Zero Two" appears before him. Two horns grow out of her head.

    Why I would like it to be translated: It is my favourite anime but I didn't like the ending so if the manga were officially translated I would be able to expirience the manga's ending without having to use illegal sites. Plus after hearing that the manga ending is more open ended and leaves room for a sequel (unlikely) whereas the possibility of a season 2 is highly unlikely but I know that the manga will be able to (hopefully) end the sad state I am in from watching the anime.

    Please tell me if the cover of the first volume is showing.

  • @Terrence I can't seem to get it to work. Oh well.

    Here's the cover. As much as I want this manga in English, I don't see J-Novel Club getting a Jump series or anything from Shueisha any time soon.
