If you use that logic it would be offensive for any villain to be human at all, since people could relate to them. I hate that word. Offensive.
What happens if you say something and someone gets...
I want Hiramaru to punch Nakai in the face. So much. But aside from that, his return was expected.
He was decent, just not extraordinary. He was just a quiet, above average person. He wasn't admired though. That's the thing. Before the massacre he was just an average guy who tried hard, after that...
"Does it portray women in a way where they are shown to be inferior, or judged more harshly than men?"
And the answer to that in Bakuman would be "yes" citing the fact that "there are dreams that...
The difference being that their desires were their flaws. They were pretty decent otherwise.
If we take away the "revenge" aspect, there is nothing left for Sasuke. He doesn't show a personality...
Motivation matters a lot in literature. The term tragic hero is a literary term, if we want to apply a literary term to him, we have to look at the literary definition of it or else not apply it at...
Uh no. Not one character wanted to be like him. They respected him, but no one wanted to be like him. There is a difference. Moreover, the audience didn't want to be like him(I hope) which is a...
Bakuman is terribly sexist. Azuki has no depth other than loving the main character.
Yes she wants to be a voice actress.
Miyoshi loves Takagi.
Iwase is a bitch....
Hibari is broken because he managed to cure himself from being poisoned out of sheer badassery. There wasn't even a reason other than "HE DOESN'T LOSE EVEN TO POISON." Which is awesome.
That doesn't make him a tragic hero at all. It makes him a human being.
Not being a jackass does not make you into a tragic hero. A tragic hero is someone who is a perfect character, someone you...
Hamlet he ain't. The problem is that a tragic hero must be established as a good character before turning bad.
Hamlet is a tragic hero because we see just how awesome and valiant he is before he...
That's...Really not how literature works. There doesn't need to be a supreme antagonist or anything like that. There are stories with no antagonists whatsoever.
Here, Kabuto and Tobi are both...
Perfect chapter. And...An anime? Already? It's either going to have lots of filler or it's going to end prematurely.
They don't need a doctor. They need a miracle man.
I'm hoping for a princess bride moment with Luffy's 'death.'
This world where we are reading Bakuman is just another manga in another higher world. We are all parts of a manga.
As for the drawing quality, you know, it would be interesting if Ohba was the one drawing while his partner was trying to get serialized with another manga. Or something similar. You know, it would...
The ending was awful because THAT.IS.NOT.HOW.HYPNOTISM.WORKS. and it broke all suspension of disbelief I had.
It was quite nice up to that point though.
Tezuka will create life on a far away planet during 7 matches.
Generally, the South American leagues only go as far as "get popular enough to be picked up by a better paid European team" so the elitist attitude in the manga is justified.
Sure South American...
Kabuto could have used the old ninja art of bluffing when talking about his resistance to torture and tricks.
Also, it's very easy to trust someone when you don't interact with them to know if they deserve your trust or not.
Saiko and Azuki don't understand each other, they believe in each other. Which is why I think their "love" is bullshit. The moment you believe in someone is the moment you give up understanding them....
Also, I'm calling it:
Beel's brother who likes video games is going to making a contract with Furuichi. Why?
Because he is Beel'z brother.
Furuichi and Oga are BROS.
AND THEY BOTH LIKE VIDEO...
What are you even talking about?
Not entirely true. There are manga artists who turn the blind eye to them because they know that certain scanlations can help an obscure series to gain enough popularity to be brought over.
Well, if the people involved with the manga want scanlations to stop, then it can't be helped. I'll stop reading it since it would be disrespectful to do otherwise.
To summarize this chapter:
Lady Gaga: BLAH BLAH BLAH
Gokudera: Is that all?
[Explosion, puts on sunglasses.]
Seriously though I loved this chapter, it gave...
Hmm I'm not sure about the world building part. I think it was definitely built and we could see it, we just couldn't understand it since it wasn't explained enough. Like you said, if it got...
I don't get what was so ''confusing'' about Moon Walker either. The pacing felt more American to me though.
I mean, American comics usually feature jump cuts and have a similar pacing to Moon...
Who needs God when you've got Akisame?
...Holy shit so it was a manga of pure manliness being drawn out of pure manliness.
As for the one shots, I liked Moon Walker the best. It had a good story, characters and setting. As for the...
It could end as Gokudera convincing her that friends are important and then losing.
But man Gokudera needs a win. Has he ever won a major battle?
Frankly I would rather the match went like...
Did Gaara just channel Rocky and managed to somehow end a cold war with a speech?
And did Asuma just channel Obi Wan?
Did everything just turn into Blackest Night?
I loved this chapter.
Thanks for the spoiler?
So just to recap the results up until now,
Fight 1: Rocky Balboa vs Apollo Creed=Tie
Fight 2: Dan the man vs E.Honda=Dan The Man
Fight 3: Mythbusters vs Lady Gaga=???
I like where this arc is...
Aww yeah Kuroko. Man I wish it was still getting scanlated, it is the best sport series since ES21.
Yeah, but Edo Tensei was imperfect and had just kinda been forgotten for a while. Then all of a sudden Kabuto went "RESSURRECTION HUZZAH" and everything.
Black Lantern Asuma and others will be fun...
Serious thread here. Does anyone think Kishi read Blackest Night and went "holy shit I gotta do that" for the current arc?
I don't mean that as an insult, and I loved Blackest Night. It's just...
I used to hate Medaka, but after those chapters where ZENKICHI WAS THE MAN I think I'm starting to like it a lot.
...Did you just call painting shitty? Really? And you think making paintings isn't hard? Really?
...Are you seriously implying that painting is easy? And that all paintings are so expensive that...
God I hope not. I hate Nakai.
Yeah, because a story about a boy and his dog can never be considered literature.
WAIT A SECOND
Shujin is a man among men.
This was amazing. I hope it keeps getting translated, as it easily became one of my favorite series out of nowhere.
I love how...uncliched the series is.
Still don't think he can handle it. Like I said, coming up with ideas is one thing. But working with them is another.
"I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among the virtues. To the logician all things should be seen exactly as they are, and to underestimate one's self is as much a departure from truth as to...
I gotta say, it's one of the most original series in jump. I love it.
...but I have a terrible feeling that it might get canceled really really soon.
That's certainly not why I assumed you drew webcomics. It was because you mentioned your drawings were not so good, which generally is not a trait a professional has, and because generally no one...
