Problem with Gintama is.... when translated to English, the comedy doesnt work that well anymore :x
+ its licensed...
well ocean, zan that's what you think of it. Everybody their taste.
What? Gintama's licensed? Man, they're licensing everything now, huh? I bet it won't do much good... As for those Japanese cultural references, I only read up to v2, but it's bypass-able... I mean, Yakitate had so many cultural references, too.
and yoropiko told me that translating gintama is really difficult. the jokes seems so japanese-traditional -> making it difficult for translating gintama
but guys this is a zan discussion. tell me what you like and dislike about it... just like a keep it about fairy tail in your discussion
Yeah let's keep it on-topic. Sorry about that.
I for one am not fond of Zan.
But either way, with new series that dont appeal to me right away.. I prefer to just not read them til there's a good amount available. Or til it's licensed/gets an anime.
i know its off-topic but since u guys where talking about me, this is why i do Zan by myself:
i started doing zan as a one man project(i even posted it here that i was doing it), then somebody from Koenosakis group contacted me and said that he wanted to help me do it since nobody in their group had as much interest in doing it, so me and his group member started doing it and then he and his team jumped in the bandwagon. so its not that i dont wanna do Zan with a group, its that its my goal to do it in my group. besides koenosaki didnt trust me in the beginning even though his cleaner thats helping me out did, so i would say its also a trust issue.
so Zan is a goal that was set by me, and i am trying to do my best to complete that, my team will keep doing Zan until it ends, and i dotn think it will end soon.
I will temporarily lock this to prevent further flaming and whatnot. Will reopen this lateron.
Reopened, now keep it civil and on-topic or I will permanently close it.
Hmmmm.... zan is n°7 now in ToC, it is just near the popular manga like naruto, bleach,... And D. Gray-man has risen up a lot too. But what To Love-ru. Man I do not get anything of that ToC? For some manga they always stay on their place. But muhyo and to love-ru who were at the top are now below...Originally Posted by NeoShweaty
Hurray for zan, for getting in the top
The things in the middle always fluctuate. A series has to be mssively popular or really bad to stay in one place. (also, i said that like two days ago so things changed)
well I am sure zan will gain more popularity, it may seem difficult to base that only on five chaps but somehow I get the feeling this is a manga that weekly shounen jump needed compared to similar shounen like bleach-mieru hito/ murasame-kun-katekyo hitman reborn...
Don't say they are the same but somehow a lot of shounen are similar. While zan for me is kinda different by its art and story
Well, I hope zan will become popular, but somehow I don't hope it too -> if zan gains popularity like others: more groups doing it
The latest chapter confirmed that zan is still good but I do not hope that things will get dragged like this continuosly...
Zan is pretty good so far, but then its only 5 chapters, so long as it dosent keep on at this pace then it should prove to be pretty good
updated: we have released zan c006 -> discuss it here
well, the story is certainly interesting. New character and great story, with a good ending. Though I hope that there will come longer arcs but then again which shounen don't start with short arcs...
getting into a long arc in the start is suicidle for every manga, the first couple of chaps are like... Get to know everything you need to know, and then let's go into the arcs.
now that zan has tsuranuki as his first friend, there is a long way to go before the gang of zan will be complete, first tsukishima needs to get into the fun too, or something like that.
She was missing for 3 chaps, it felt kinda lonely with only... 3 characters (if you count the girl) for 3 chaps...
It should get better now ^^"
