Favorite manga saga and arcs
(6 posts, 297 views) Posted: 176d 6h, 16m ago by movingstone in Manga General
What are some of your favorite anime/manga stories (sagas and arcs). By that I meant it should be like the usual storyline and it should have a beginning, middle, and end. And can you give a rate for them.

For example, if you gonna mention the Chunnin Exam (Na ...

haha thanks, actually, I don't want to read slice of life. Not even that "Silver Spoon," though, anime is a different matter. ...

Thank, I got excited because I saw an old series. But the art isn't the same. I recalled an old japanese tough guy high school setting at one point. But that maybe a different series altogether. ...
manga with a bunch of homeless

This comic I read a while back and I'm not sure the country of origin (Japan, China, or Korea).

I am not even sure if it was a fighting comic but the art I believe is not quite modern. I recall in one part there was a confrontation between 2 forces. And one forc ...
slice of life

Slice of life and harem kinda go hand in hand when you think about anime back when I was in middle school. Maybe I got older now that I am sort of bore with the anime that I initially enjoy.

But ya, just the past week I got back to the slice of life genre. The first one wa ...

I look at your reading list and you pretty much didn't read some of the more popular titles that well deserved their popularity. So ya, almost a no brainer recommending these but whatever

One Piece- giants, mermaids, dwarfs, fishmen, dinosaurs, and others

Recommend me an anime series with a cool/interesting setting. Preferably a male protagonist but level header tom boy female protagonist like in Ghost in the Shell is good. Newer series is preferred (2010-) unless something is older than 2010 that is really good ( ...

Quote from exxp
Then Sherlock-Holmes-like characters are what I'm looking for!
Thanks for your reply ^o^


I don't know if Black Jack survive the test of time. But it is one of the older classic manga/anime.

>___< omg, i was watching House, MD. And just look at past review on IGN site. And just came here, what the coincident is someone posted a thread on House. O___O

House is based on Sherlock Holmes especially over his deduction skill. This meant the ...
Badass Old men/geezers

Thank for some of the recommendation. The list is basically limited to what I read/watch.

On Kungfu Panda- The turtle guy has no epic feast that rival anyone on the list in my opinion. Neither was Sifu. I saw a clip the other day on youtube. I laugh out loud when they ...
Historical Awesomeness
(13 posts, 809 views) Posted: 442d 11h, 0m ago by movingstone in I'm Looking For...
Hmm, Rurouni Kenshin also a historical setting. But I begged to differ that it is a historical series like Vagabond and or Vinland Saga (with actual historical people and events). Most of Rurouni Kenshin has no historical worth. There are some real historical people w ...

Ravages of Time is probably the only reinvented historical series I read.

Though, one of the author's philosophy is there isn't really a true history because history (back then) is written by the victors.

Ravages of Time is a story of the popular three king ...
Badass Old men/geezers
(7 posts, 797 views) Posted: 442d 15h, 2m ago by movingstone in Manga General
Well, I think they are quite old. They found the hideout in 1969, which I would place them at least somewhere from 6-10 years old then. The story jump forward to 2014. I meant most of them are at Jiraya's age (50 years old more or less). And Naruto called ...

(7 posts, 797 views) Posted: 443d 2h, 22m ago by movingstone in Manga General
One of my favorite literature troupes had always been the bad ass old guys. The mentor, the wise old sage, and when it down to business, they kick serious asses. I meant people like Gandalf, Albus Dumbledore, and Yoda are legendary as popular icons. They ar ...

Very Happy with this chapter. I was kinda worry with the direction of this arc, but everything seemed to come together very nicely. ...
Anime or manga
(1 posts, 446 views) Posted: 449d 7h, 58m ago by movingstone in Monster
I want to start Monster. Should I read the manga or watch the anime?

For example, I would rather read One Piece manga (bad anime pacing) and watch Hunter x Hunter anime (horrible manga art). ...

Best story arc/saga
(1 posts, 252 views) Posted: 470d 9h, 11m ago by movingstone in Manga General
I am curious to read your top 10 (or less) of what you consider as the best story arcs/saga. List them in order and or give them a grade out of 10. I supposed a story arc can have a higher rate but may not be your favorite depend on taste. I hope this will change ...

Most of this chapter is junk except for the end. For the first time in a long while, Bleach just mindf*** me. About the same level as Aizen turning out to be a bad guy and isn't dead. ...

I'm looking for this really old comic (not sure if it is originate from Japan or China or Korea). It featured the battle between representatives of 12 eastern vs western zodiacs. I read a selective volumes of that like over 10 years ago from an old comic book ...
"Anime/Manga is racist" is a faulty statement

Quote from Damnedman
Did you ignore my point that even by the sociology definition, manga/anime can still be considered racist? I'm not arguing which definition is correct; I'm arguing that even by the sociology definition, depicting minority races in a ...

I guess you just pass every example that does not fit into your argument as terrible.


Hmm, I think maybe you didn't follow the conversation. A lot of people give a lot of great point especially on the black face. That person almost conv ...

Quote from Damnedman
The sociology definition on the other hand is largely ignored, because most people are ignorant of that definition, which is basically racism requires institutional power and privileges not available to the other races.


Then this is rather simple. ...

Seriously, at this point you have no idea wtf you're talking about. You're being defensive for the sake of defensive.
