    Old manga

    I did not come to the manga scene with said Naruto and Bleach. Hence, it is totally annoying that I forgot a lot of titles that I've read when I was a kid. If anybody read or know of popular comic titles (Chinese, Japanese, etc) from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Since Vietnam was horrid with copy right materials, and I usually read like random 1 or 2 volumes from used bookstore, it is hard to remember them (especially with the different names).

    I meant stuffs like this. Even though, I probably don't like half of these things now. Hopefully I will ran into something I've read as a kid.

    Cyborg 009 (1964)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=26470
    Black Jack (1973)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=6421
    Ore Wa Teppei (1974)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=9536
    Dr. Slump (1980)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=4496
    Kattobi Itto (1986)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=6851
    Saint Seiya (1986)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=3971
    Rakudai Ninja Rantarou (1986)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=268
    Break Shot (1987)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=826
    Yaiba (1988)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=1735
    Dragon Quest - Dai no Daibouken (1989)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=2809
    Captain Kid (1990)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=35818
    Dragon Quest- Emblem of Roto (1991)- http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=242


    And series like Sailor Moon, Doreamon, Dragon Ball, Detective Conan, Jo Jo Bizarre Adventure, Ranma 1/2, and Yugi Oh.


    I will update as I recalled the titles. One series had to do with 12 eastern zodiacs vs 12 western zodiacs. Another one has similar feel to a Bruce Lee film where the protagonist have to defeat opponents of each floor. One series I recall a match between a fighter who fought with two hook swords against a tri nunchuck. Another series had a lot of hobos gathering and surrounded a building.

    *I am in my early 20s, I am not that old. It just Vietnam love reprint series over and over.*

    lol, just realize I read this series when I was really young

    That is the Hattori mask of Friend from 20th century boys if anybody read that series.

    I haven't read it as well.

    Well you mentioned Saint Seiya and Dragon Ball so I was just curious that Hokuto no Ken was not.

    Wow I havent read or heard of many of these series. I think the oldest series on my list that I read was Dragonball and started Saint Seiya but only a few chapters, its just not as good as Saint Seiya Omega.

    Well, I was younger. So my taste was not particular sophisticate. I have read a lot of gag manga too. It kinda fun to connect thing like the Hattori mask with the Friend from 20th Century Boys.

    I think a lot of people may like Captain Kid, groups should pick up on the translation.

    Re: Old manga

    I have a problem with Shotaro Ishinomori mangas. I'm bored almost immediately.
    i'm afraid it will be the same with Tezuka, though I have not read much of him yet to be sure.
    pygmalio was one of my recent best read. Better that plenty of new recent shounens.
    I would also like to give a try to galaxy 999.

    also, i have seen a nice exposition about Garo revue and I think I would like to read some of its emblematic titles.
    Has anyone read Kamui den ?

    I would have liked to, but it is very hard to find in English. It's not available online, licensed editions are long out of print. It is supposedly one of the greatest gekiga ever written.

    If you're looking to read Garo, I'd recommend starting with Tatsumi Yoshihiro. The Push Man and Other Stories are a good place to start. His work are easily found online, at least last time I looked. Tsuge Yoshiharu is often considered the defining gekigaka of Garo's early days. Nejishiki is a good place to start. It should be posted to Mangafox, of all places, under the name Screw-Style. Proceed with caution. Garo, it's successor, AX, and Gekiga in general, do not have much connection to mainstream mangaka. They can be very avant garde, both in art and content. They are not always easy reads. Approach them more like modern art, rather than manga. That sounds horribly pretentious, but it will put you in a better state of mind for appreciating the content.

    Would I have even spoken of Garo if I was only interested in mainstream manga ?

    Kamui den is quite easily found in library in Paris...

    Sometimes these things need saying anyway. A wandering Naruto fan could read this thread, try Nejishiki for the lolz, only for them to end up scared and confused. The gekiga underworld has sights even seinen fans might not be prepared for. Ever read Maruo Suehiro?

    Like I said, it's not readily available in English. I know it only by reputation. If it's available at the library it probably is worth giving it a try. I am very familiar with Garo, Gekiga, and underground manga. Kamui has a very high reputation among that fandom. That's pretty much the best I can do. It is considered emblematic of 1960's Garo, along with the two artists (both contemporaries of Kamui author SHirato Sanpei) I mentioned in my previous post.

    Gekiga sounds scary. Is any of them actually has a good storyline?
