    Re: Best plot-twist

    I'll give my opinion on each choice:

    One piece:
    As already discussed during the first round, the selected "One piece" event doesn't deserve to be among the 5 finalists. I can't vote for the one piece event when it's not even the biggest shock we had in the manga. Imo, There are at least 2-3 events bigger than that in one piece:
    Spoiler show


    Naruto :
    A good plot-twist ... but a little too big for me to swallow
    Spoiler show


    Berserk :
    Spoiler show


    Bleach :
    Spoiler show


    I unfortunately don't know Vinland Saga enough.

    Re: Best plot-twist

    Koen gave me this link:
    http://www.mangafox.com/manga/vinland_saga/v07/c051/

    I read that chapter & the next one ... I'm pretty sure that if I knew vinland saga better, I would have given my vote to Vinland Saga.

    The way it's happening is just awesome. The best thing about this plot twist is that the character Askeladd probably took the right decision. I stopped reading vinland saga mainly because I don't like this kind of graphics but now I'm sure I missed something.

    Re: Best plot-twist

    berserk's plot was so twisted that it broke off : ) obviously #1

    other than that , bleach is better than OP and naruto imo . what i call a good twist is considerable change of events , preferably unpredictable and unexpected

    I liked the plot twists in Fullmetal Alchemist more than all of those.

    But I'll have to give it to One Piece. I'm sorry Vinland Saga, but I haven't read enough of you!

    That plot twist of Berserk is awesome indeed, but that one of Vinland saga is at least on par with it imo!

    That of Bleach... ok, it's interesting, but actually that plot twist marks the moment when Bleach became totally uninteresting to me. It was too twisted so to say

    About that one of Naruto
    Spoiler show


    A vote almost isn't enough for me for this awesome category, I'ld rather have to make it a ranking
    Vinland Saga >/= Berserk > Naruto > Bleach > OP

    Re: Best plot-twist

    OP certainly has many greater twists than that one.

    Naruto one...Felt bit forced, and way too many people was this coming, for it to really surprise. Not than surprise is everything in a plot twist, in that case Bleach would win with that one. Also, Naruto one didn't impact the overall plot that much, only our view on a certain character, and how an other acts. The latter however doesn't feel too natural. This is what I dislike in Naruto, the displaying of rival and heros stories isn't in balance.

    Bleach one was a shock, but nothing more.

    Now, I really need to catch up with Berserk.

    Vinland saga's is the best. It was shocking, surprising, well executed and really had a great impact on the story and the characters. It's really in it's own league.

    Re: Best plot-twist

    Berserk yet again would take the cake IMO, my mind was blown so hard that I put the manga on-hold because of the shock. So traumatic

    Naruto's plot-twist was also pretty good, it wasn't delivered so well yet it still was a large shock and made plenty of sense. Not to mention it completely changed the view some of us had of ninja villages, politics and countries within the manga. Brilliant in that regard

    Vinland Saga & OP also have some nice ones. Bleach's is epic for sure and widely recognized by everyone but I'd say it was more of a wtflol moment than actually shocking

    Re: Best plot-twist

    Finding out whose Ace's father was was a great plot-twist! Not only did we find out Ace's true heritage, but it set in motion for what's happening now. I doubt Ace would have been executed had his heritage not been what it is.

    M3J >> I'm sorry but that's just blind fanboyism. Among the 5 choices, it's the weakest by far.

    At least it's a better choice than revelation of Duvall's identity. <_<

    While it may be blind fanboyism, I've only read OP and Naruto, and the nominated plot-twist was already hinted at when he met with Naruto.

    Call it fanboyism, but I'm merely picking the better choice out of the two that I do know.


    If anyone saw that, sorry for the spoiler tag fail.

    Re: Best plot-twist

    Haven't read Vinland Saga....

    of the rest 4 i feel fairly justified in my choice of Naruto.


    How the berserk's event of choice could even be considered a plot twist is beyond me.

    i always thought plot twist are mostly equivalent of a magician's trick. there should be distraction and misleading from the actual event. and inside them there should be the things that ppl will overlook because of the mislead. and when finally the twist is revealed,ppl should be able to go back and feel like "why the hell i missed that?"

    of course the effect of the said event would have to have a great impact on the plot...changing its flow.

    naruto does well on both accounts.

    Quoting from Wikipedia:
    Quote Quote:
    A plot twist is a change in the expected direction or outcome of the plot (...).It is a common practice in narration used to keep the interest of an audience, usually surprising them with a revelation. Some "twists" are foreshadowed and can thus be predicted by many viewers/readers, whereas others are a complete shock.
    Yes, it was "foreshadowed", or even more due to the introduction of volumes 1&2. But it turned everything upside down in a single event, it definitly deserves to be called a plot twist.

    Now Bleach's plot twist is something special, after all it seems not even the author knew it would happen
