|Gantz ended...your thoughts
(34 posts, 6853 views) Posted: 641d 19h, 3m ago by Zoro in Gantz
Ah, well. At least there was an ending.
13 years, 37 volumes, 383 chapters. What an accomplishment for such an author. I really wish he expanded on all of these "points" and didn't implement the "end of the world" portion. But there w ...
|What Are Are The 3 Oldest Songs That You Would Consider To Be One Of Your Favorite?

Already mentioned but:
"Jimi Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower."
Even Bob Dylan complimented Hendrix for his cover on that song.
Anyways, lots of mention on Nancy Sinatra. I'll include:
"Nancy Sinatra - You Only Live Twice"

What we have to assume is that Vice-Admiral Maynard was taken by surprise to Bartolomeo's ability. I'm sure he doesn't reveal his ability too often, so when Maynard thought he could easily take down a Rookie with a mere 150mil bounty, Mayn ...

There it is folks. The Bari Bari no Mi. Something we predicted.
Ricky went down kinda easily, I thought he had some bigger role to play. Perhaps later...
Didn't think Blue Gilly was siding with the king at first, but anyways, they all couldn't take his destructive p ...

Wow, can't believe I didn't think of that.
It actually makes sense. He provokes people to get them to attack him, and the attack is instantly countered/reflected. It's so simple, and it's right up Oda's ally. Why else would he drop his gua ...

Anyone else really wanna find out what's up with Bartolomeo?
At first glance, I could speculate about his Devil Fruit to be a Zoan. Also, the whole thing about his name being "The Cannibal". But now... when Hack tried to catch him off guard. I don' ...

Let's see if I can summarize the B-Block.
Abdullah (Criminal) + Jeet (Criminal)
Bartolomeo (Pirate, $150,000,000)
Bellamy (Pirate, $195,000,000)
Blue Gilly (Martial Artist)

|Zetman is "only halfway finished"
(10 posts, 5900 views) Posted: 696d 4h, 59m ago by Zoro in Zetman
Oh definitely, TMS has some irreplaceable gems. Zetman just needs a more loyal adaptation that isn't afraid to go all the way. I look at all the love Shingeki no Kyojin is getting (which it deserves), and I wonder if Zet can eventually reach that status. ...
|Zetman is "only halfway finished"
(10 posts, 5900 views) Posted: 696d 18h, 47m ago by Zoro in Zetman
Not to bring back old memories, but this was quoted 3 years ago correct? Three volumes of the series have since been published, and it continues in Young Jump, so if the math works out the way I think it does, at this rate Zetman still has another 10 years and will t ...

Indeed, Law must've discovered Caeser's plan about the poison gas.
More importantly, Caeser can use his power like Darth Vader. O_O The whole choking thing at least...

2 weeks! aaah...
I know!! lol.
I'm sure it was the poison that kicked in.
But damn, Law's part has gotten so interesting. I have four guesses as to who it is:
Bepo (for the comedy of it)
[New DF User]
As for why he's hu ...

He's kinda overpowered in my opinion. I think Oda just wanted to see what would happen if he switched their hearts around, but otherwise Law got a super power boost to his ego.
I'm kinda more interested in the two guys he's reporting to, weir ...

Just pointing out the obvious here. Law's devil fruit is kinda cheap, but it's probably the reason for the centaurs and why the samurai's body is broken up all over the island.
Also, I want to point out, if it hasn't been mentioned before. Does it ...
|Hunter x Hunter Gets 1st Anime Film
(4 posts, 1891 views) Posted: 1105d 2h, 34m ago by Zoro in Hunter x Hunter
Completely Original story. Sounds nice. I wonder which time frame they'll choose to set it in. After Hunter Exam would be a good start. If not than maybe a prequel? That'd be a nice turn. ...

I wanna thank Togashi for stepping it up again with this chapter. I was so afraid that he was losing his touch with limited plot devices lately, I still have the feeling that he sort of rushed through the ending of that last arc, and with this chapter. But it makes no difference ...
|Mangastream to STOP Scanlating Shounen Jump Series
(60 posts, 11624 views) Posted: 1141d 2h, 28m ago by Zoro in Chatter Box
Umm, the biggest issue is that no one will react positively to a known group, like MangaStream, losing priority distribution on popular shonen manga. I don't see how this will help a supporter of the series make the transition from scans to legally distributed cop ...

Wait a minute.... what the hell is wrong with this chapter?
Does it seem like Togashi is taking the easy way out for every question we want answered? If I wasn't so hooked with HxH I probably wouldn't have even read this chapter. I may be over-elabora ...
|Shingeki no Kyojin film leaked
(6 posts, 4321 views) Posted: 1145d 13h, 57m ago by Zoro in Shingeki no Kyojin
This series will be a much larger hit as a feature film than anything else.
Although, the small stuff in the manga happen to be a favourite technique used by the author, like all the anxiety and the incredibly realistic fear brought onto each character, if paced correctly ...

Best I've read is probably Alan Moore's Watchmen. An obvious one.
I haven't read all the Batman comics I've got saved yet, but Year One was indeed a great start. The Killing Joke might be Joker's best appearance, but I haven' ...

Reading the latest chapter, I'm going to have to agree with the next hiatus being the end of Hunter x Hunter.
Honestly though, I don't know what happened. Either I'm being too ignorant in finding anything in the new chapters worth reading, or Tog ...

Saw Hugo last week. Saw Adventures of Tintin yesterday. Both were astounding thanks to Scorsese's famous tracking shots and film editing, and Tintin was non-stop action, a true gem in Spielberg's list of works (reminded me somewhat of Indiana Jo ...

Hope it's all right to revive this thread.
These have probably been said already:
1. Naoki Urasawa - There's no question.
2. Eiichiro Oda - One Piece
3. Yoshihiro Togashi - Hunter x Hunter
4. Kentaro Miura - Berserk
5. Tsugumi Ohba - I prefer the Death Not ...

(26 posts, 2157 views) Posted: 1236d 8h, 39m ago by Zoro in Manga General
I resorted to the quality of the manga, because if you look at some of the best manga series out there, they're already complete. So, I don't really jump into a series until it has at least a few chapters going.
I do know what you mean though. I'm w ...
