Meh, Raizel was cool but I'm not a big fan. I thought his ignorant side was far more epic than his "boss" side.
You so funny!
tche,how stingy of you
lol uhm I think I'm your fanboy, yeah. Kinda I mean we have the same likes (winter sports season has finally started ) and you're a cool bro
haha that's true, pure Uchiha pride XD not really a fan of overly arrogant villains but he's doing it in such a "cool" badass way, you just have to love him.
ah well, drawings look good but I'm not interested enough to read the same stuff again. Tell me if there's something new/worth reading popping up in the manga.
Oh, it's here: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...=1#post3160889
Yeah, looking forward to it. But I really hope Germany ups their game soon in regards to cross-country skiing. It's been awful for you guys the last years, and we need Germany in the top (because all the large sponsors coming from Germany). You know if there's been any improvements in your camp since last winter?
There's plenty of careless/cool villains, but not in Naruto, and I think the answer lies there. In Naruto we haven't had a villain that just seems to be enjoying himself and throw out witty comments for giggles. We're used to the formula of "I have a tragic past, this is why I turned out this way blablabla". Madara on the other hand, while he had a "tough life", is different. But overall I think more than anything it's obvious that Kishi himself has fun with Madara, and it really shows in the writing and drawing. He makes him make those ridiculous "I'm just sitting around, chillin'" poses and throw out awesome lines all the time. It's clear that he's enjoying finally having a villain he can write about more loosely.
Regarding the cross-country: Hard to tell but we really lack new people. Biathlon is waaaay more popular over here so most athletes go in that direction. We have a few people but not nearly enough when people like Angerer or Teichmann back out. Granted they're past their best time but we still need them. I would guess it's a 50/50 thing, I doubt their will be a new generation of pretty good guys/girls any soon but with some luck we will have at least 1 or 2. Like I said, hard to tell at this point. I would guess things don't look too bright at the moment.
And I agree with the villains, though we had guys like this. Take Deidara (never liked him much though tbh), Hidan or Kisame didn't care much about shit and none of them really had a such a tragic past. Kisame to a certain extent maybe but nothing grave and he never bitched about it. They're an exception though, that's for sure. I have to say that I always preferred classy villains, that's why I liked Kisame more than Hidan or Deidara. Madara is way more classy though XD and like you said after all the bitching and whining (don't make me start about Sasuke) it's definitely something refreshing.
And yeah, you clearly notice when Kishi is having fun with a character and when he doesn't.
