No you can't now prove me wrong
btw, didn't know you're a Magi fan xD or how come you're wearing that "fascinating" Sinbad set? : )
I didn't know Randi-kun was a fan of me either! Randi-kun know that I like you too buddy!

I was/am. At one point it would've been my fave manga. Those good old days having Naruto/Magi/OP/FT to read.
You did know, stop boasting
Same for me, actually okay scratch FT bc just no. I'm still proud of myself for pushing for the Magi section, I was one of the few who read it before it became popular :^) I'm curious, how do you feel about the last arc?
Your thirst or thirst of your female friends? : )
You probably had a few more than just 4 lol. I used to just keep to shonen weekly, was too busy, and read them all on the Friday. Everything else I'd read on a whim, unlike now where I try to keep up with 10-20. Helps being on a forum in that regard.
Didn't know you pushed Magi. I think I started around 2011-2, that was when I started those battle mangas. Not sure how popular Magi was then.
The last arc was obviously bad. It didn't need to be like that at all, I just couldn't make sense of it. Took me ages to struggle through all the Sinbad stuff
Oh probably a bit of both ; ) but I'll claim it as my own thirst.
lol I think most people start the same way XD Believe it or not, I only followed Naruto in the very beginning (2006 I think?), and then the very mainstream stuff: One Piece and Bleach, and Hunter x Hunter after a while. Not sure when that ended, but I think at least for a year or two I only followed that stuff and was highly looking forward to read it each Friday haha. I'm not even that big on the manga front, currently following 28 at the moment. 9 of those are monthly though, and 9 are irregularly released (stuff like Berserk/Hunter x Hunter), so that's like 10 chaps per week. Most of the other stuff is more or less straight shounen, so I'm far from a manga connoisseur like you
Well I think that was quite a bit before you became active here, but I think 2011 was when I started reading the manga, too. You know, I gave the section a quick look, and this was I think the very first thread I created for the section (before it went live)... reading my first post, it's almost hilarious how I basically predicted the last arc https://mangahelpers.com/forum/threads/sinbad-whats-his-true-goal.78329/
But yes, I had just as much trouble getting through the last arc...
Then if you will allow me this question, am I right in assuming that you appreciate hot guys as well?
Oh, I started with Berserk first. Never even contemplated manga until a friend gave me a few vols to read.. I was never into comics as a kid. I picked up a few more 'adult' manga through the same friend, before trying shoujo and shounen. I was watching Naruto and One Piece on TV, so eventually got into those. I find them easier/exciting to read week to week, even if they're not as 'good'. I'll probably get onto Boku no Hero and Black Clover eventually. Atm I'm trying not to pick up weekly's though.
Lol you were definitely on the right track. Yea I always suspected he'd become an obstacle, because he is a larger than life character who probably would yield to a 'shounen philosophy'. But I didn't think Ohtaka would make it so cringey. I remember battling it in my mind, trying to justify his actions as no different to Solomon, but using him as a yardstick isn't smart either.
Of course I appreciate handsome or hot guys. Obviously nowhere near waifu levels, but enough to have fun and flaunt the 2D male form.
Berserk as your first manga? Now that's something, but I can imagine how that's an interesting and fascinating read as a newcomer Think my first manga actually was a Neon Genesis Evangelion volume from a friend, but I was like 10 back then, still remember that it left a strong impression on me lol. Then Dragon Ball, bc that was huge here in Germany. Neither registered as manga though, I only got into that through Naruto because I watched the anime on TV and then started to watch the rest online bc I was too impatient lol. I think most people actually got into manga through anime, there's just no way anime doesn't capture you as a kid/teen.
Not sure if you can generally say that shounen are less "good" than seinen, the categorization for that is too broad anyway, but I assume you're talking about the standard adventure story here. I think they both have their pros and cons, but I can see where you're coming from.
lol yeah it was just too cringey, sadly. I'm actually one of the people who think Solomon wasn't half-bad as a character, but I can't deny that he has his share of problems as well.
As for the last part, I see you didn't understand that I was asking a somewhat private question, if you catch my drift : ) But I see, I feel the same
Idk man the art is pretty crazy and the whole goth fantasy vibe is pretty appealing to edgy teens lol. But it was solely the recommendation that got me onto it.
I mean the battle one's specifically. It's pretty much a formula to feel hyped over - which equates to more fun than a serious read most of the time for me. Seinen probably handle the stories/characters better from the one's I've seen.
You mean bisexual? No I'm not.
lol yeah I wasn't sarcastic or something like that, I can genuinely see how that would be an interesting experience for a teen and a newcomer to manga
Yes, that I agree on
Yes that's what I was wondering about when I saw your set After such a straight answer I'm not sure what to say besides "I see" lol, but it's good to know that you're pretty open about more juicy question
I always thought they were both the same thing but when you use the term Kawaii it's more sweeter and less hollow when you say it to random ish.
Juicy and cozy questions are among my favourites
That's a fair assessment. Cute, growing up with the word, is reserved for babies, and young furry animals. Kawaii doesn't have those limitations I feel.
And hello as well, Bugzee.

Cute vs. Kawaii, place your bets:
