    That's a debatable subject.

    But I get what you're saying.

    Re: The Gag Manga Thread

    Since there is no definition, or difference between, gag and comedy manga, I've always used the two names to differentiate between the 8 or 9 page (gag) and 20 page series (comedy). Something like Jaguar or Mangaka - san to Assistant - san to would fall into the first, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei or St. Young Men in the second. Not that there is a dictionary definition, just a nice little short hand to differentiate between two ways of doing the same thing. Don't forget, 4Koma is just as important a style of gag/comedy.

    With that out of the way, let's make this place a nice little thread to discuss comedy/gag/4Koma manga. Discussion about specific series is fine, discussion about the genre is fine too. No lists. There's already a list thread, lists will be deleted. Any reference to funny moments from series that are obviously not comedies will be deleted.

    Re: The Gag Manga Thread

    Can Gintama be considered gag? I has short stories plus it has almost no plot and is prety fun (the funiest manga of the history of the universe lol :P).

    Re: The Gag Manga Thread

    Gintama certainly is a comedy series, though I'm not sure why comedy has to be defined in the negative (no plot). Gintama has a fairly in depth plot so far as I'm concerned.

    Re: The Gag Manga Thread

    Is it because Gintama have character development, and multiple arc along with episodic one?

    I really love Gintama, to me it is the funniest manga. Another way of saying is the amount of the comedy it has is incredible.

    Is 4koma considered a gag? because i never really like it, the only reason i happen to read maybe because it included on the chapter that i read. And despite how popular Kochikame is, i never really want to read it.

    Is doraemon considered a gag manga?

    I don't really like kochikame but I don't really dislike it for me kochikame is a bit childish. But I've only saw a few anime episodes so I can be wrong.

    Re: The Gag Manga Thread

    4 koma can count as gag, due to the short sharp jokes over and over and so on.

    also kochikame is childish, for it is shonen and aimed at 10-13 year olds. but the animated movie that's got subs floating out there is definitely well suited to all ages.

    Re: The Gag Manga Thread

    As TLer of KochiKame (having just finished vol. 1 last week), I sort of find the series not too bad for a general audience so far. It just is sort of something of a completely different time that you have to get yourself used to in liking...

    One of these days I need to read Kochikame. Anything that's lasted so long deserves to be read.

    Re: The Gag Manga Thread

    by the way, did Kochikame become a permanent member because it was really popular in the beginning, or is there something with the mangaka? (or is it both?)

    i know its pretty good because i've read couple of them, but there should be something more to go on for this long.

    and same question for Jaguar too.

    Re: The Gag Manga Thread

    I think the fact that it has no solid plot counts to that so there's no ending for the series and as long as it is popular it can go on forever.
