    Re: Geniuses in the Mangaverse

    There are quite a few geniuses in manga, but I can't remember that many just now, so instead I'll just mention ones I do know, but which you didn't mention:

    - Nara Shikamaru (Naruto)
    - Yokoya Norihiko (Liar Game)
    - Nizuma Eiji (Bakuman)

    Re: Geniuses in the Mangaverse

    Geniuses, just like me, good idea for a thread.

    Falcon from Bloody Monday - He can hack into any computer and system, not even the pentagon stands a chance.
    Hikaru from Hikaru no Go - Young boy learns how to play Go and we see him become even better than his teacher.
    Urahara Kisuke from Bleach - Creator of various tools, and founder of the Research Bureau thing.
    Medaka from Medaka Box - She packs a brain above those over-seized boobs.

    I'll post if I can think of anyone else.



    @Shaheer's post below mine, you already said Akiyama, of course he's a genius.

    Re: Geniuses in the Mangaverse

    I think he was just mentioning characters that you didn't . Oh and after reading aki's post, I've remembered some more:

    - Orihara Maya (buxom babe from Bloody Monday, who although slutty, is a very dangerous intelectual)
    - Edogawa Conan (don't really read Detective Conan, but you gotta hand it to the kid even if he is a crime magnet)
    - Arsène Lupin III (Lupin III)

    Re: Geniuses in the Mangaverse

    @Shaheer - CrudeCross is correct, you already mentioned my favorite genius.

    Toua Tokuchi from One Outs - imagine if Akiyama were a pitcher in major league baseball, likes the get in people's psyche.
    Tom Shirasagi from Gamble Fish - a gambler who goes around school earning money by using strategy and educated gambling.
    Bak Madarame from Usogui - Another gamber manga, it's darker, more blood and thrilling arcs with a mastermind.
    Manabizaki Kyou from SWOT - He fights with a freaking book, always thinks about calculations to inflict damage.

    Re: Geniuses in the Mangaverse

    Ummm, I think both Kissu and Beet from Beet the vandal buster can be consider a genius. It’s quite depend, do you mean genius as in ‘genius’ general and only the smarty brain? That’ll shorten or broaden the list quite a fair bit.

    I’m pretty sure Aizen, Gin, and Hitsugaya can be consider a genius either way, of course, they’re all from Bleach.

    Well, the rest really depend on the ‘genius’ definition. I’ll wait until I post more.
    Most of the thing I post is probably assumption if it's not a fact that I support using some evidence from the manga.

    If you knows you're on my ignore list and you quote my post, there's high chance I would ignore you. Or answer you and not look at your response.

    Re: Geniuses in the Mangaverse

    I think genius in this case would mean intelligent. All the examples we've seen so far are intelligent characters. I did think about including Hyuuga Neji and Uchiha Sasuke, but then I realized they really aren't geniuses despite what the manga tells us. They're still pretty smart though, and can be considered "geniuses" when it comes to fighting.

    Re: Geniuses in the Mangaverse

    In tha case, umm…

    Yoshitune from Air Gear (He’s smart, and have the guts to back it up.)

    Sanzenin Nagi from Hayate no Gotoku (She skip the grade, even through he play all those game. My hat’s off to her.)

    Agata Kojiro from Sket Dan (IG 160, can read and manipulate people quite well. He solved the question without hearing it, that’s pure genius)

    Kanzaki Urumi from GTO (IQ 200, enough to burst your school without your teacher being able to do anything. Oh, and she also correct her teacher.)

    Kotomi from Clannad (Not too sure if I can include her, but Clannad is a light novel both made into manga and anime, so I’ll just include her. She’s top of her class and calculate how to hit a baseball’s ball at the right angle. That’s smart, although her body’s not good enough to keep up with it.)

    And from here on there’ll be some spoiler. Don’t read them if you don’t want to be spoil.

    Spoiler show


    That’s it for now. I’ll include more later.
    Most of the thing I post is probably assumption if it's not a fact that I support using some evidence from the manga.

    If you knows you're on my ignore list and you quote my post, there's high chance I would ignore you. Or answer you and not look at your response.

    I guess Ed and Alphonse from FMA can be called geniuses too. They are pretty young and such great alchemists. Their heads are full of knowledge that is not normsl for their ages.

    I choose Bossun from SKET DANCE. Sometimes he acts stupid but when he uses his special ability of concentration (XD), it's pretty cool. He thinks like a detective without actually being one.

    He's more people smart than he appears. His personality attracts people, helps them find their place in the world. Genius isn't just about book learning, I think.
