    Re: What is TRULY the funniest manga?

    I read Slam Dunk last week and that had me laughing a lot. Beezlebub I thought was going to be real funny but then it turned into a lot of beaten up teenagers.

    Re: What is TRULY the funniest manga?

    I just remembered which was funny to me "GON", the little tyrannosaurus rex. The game that came out for it was pretty hard.
    A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk...I have a workstation.

    The Gag Manga Thread

    Can i start executing people who immediately expect gag manga to be bad? It'd be so much fun!

    Though in all fairness Wajimania has given the genre a bad name at the moment, with it's author titled egotistical blandness

    Another name for gag manga would be comedy manga, the reason they call them gag instead of comedy is probably because the comedy is derived from multiple gags throughout the story telling.

    Noodles, if you love gag manga so much, why don't you scanlate Inumaru Dashi...

    Also gag manga often gets a bad rap because usually the drawing skill isn't good. If it's descent like stuff in Bobobo and Inumaru I don't mind. Even Jaguar.

    Wajimania, not so much.

    nothing against gag mangas!
    i'm not saying it will be bad automatically. its just that gag manga isn't my taste like how i refrain from reading shoujo mangas.
    so i was disappointed because i won't be reading any of the new series.

    hmmm. i categorize gag and comedy as too different things.
    for me, gag mangas are mangas that doesn't have much of an on-going plot and usually have episodic stories that focus only on one or two chapters with little connection to others. (example: kochikame, inumaru dashi, etc)
    comedy mangas are mangas on the other hand that does have on-going plots and development. (example: Beelzebub, Medaka Box, Onidere, etc)
    but i guess its a bit biased.

    I wasn't being too literal, generally speaking gag = comedy

    That's not quite true, though. Gag is a very specific type of comedy, and one that doesn't appeal to everyone (hence why gag manga are sometimes unpopular).

    It's true that gag manga can be described as comedy manga, but it's a more specific type, with less focus on character and centered around cheap gags.

    Yes, that's what I'm saying. I think it'll just be easier for me and everyone else if I reword what I said. Gag = funny.
