ITT The greatest manga you have ever read.
anyone else read this?
back when Rumiko knew how to make mangas
>Akira is equally as detailed as Berserk and Blame. Every page had intricate backgrounds and character nuance.
>implying detail and artstyle are the only things that matter in manga
I tend to like fucked up stories, so my best 2 would be
inb4 the obligatory Kurosawa hate post mentioning how overrated the manga is on /a/ because some people can't understand why a bunch of former edgy loner kids have such an easy time relating to a manga about an edgy loner kid
This or Pluto.
There are a lot of other series i loved and think are great manga, but in the end i'm a sucker for sci-fi, and that's quite underrepresented lately.
Even though it's only 10 chapters in, Cupid no Itazura Nijidama is pretty close to this for me. The state of it's translation kills me though, it gets picked up again once every year or two for one chapter and then dropped again. What hurts more is translation stopped at literally the worst point.
Great rec thread,
not that i'm complaing though
I haven't read a lot of manga
It's not sci-fi but ..
Why can't there be a coming of age story where the MC straight up kills himself in the end instead.
Call me edgy if you want but a fair number of people actually do that in real life. It is unrealistic to not have this scenario play out in a manga at least once.
Suicide would have been too good an ending for Punpun. Living is harder than dying, especially if "living" entails putting up with some needy selfish bitch and helping her raise another man's kid.
That's okay, because later you get to segments like the elevator ride and the hollow void that used to be Jupiter and it's a big moment when you realize the scale of time Killy's been at it.
Oh man, I remember downloading manga from MangaReactor using emule when I was in middle school, and I still have it in my old computer.
It's probably the oldest thing in my backlog. Someday, man. Someday...
I love this shit so much, it took the position of favorite manga, unseating berserk.
Duke Hyou was such a beast, he didn't need any fancy titles to kick ass.
Parte 6: Vento Aureo
Definitely my favorite stands in Part 6.
Might not be the but definitely the most intense and enjoyable manga I've ever read.
Shamo was edgy from the moment he bites his rapist's dick off in the 2nd chapter.
Good manga nonetheless
What, shamo has always been edgyness incarnate, that's the main reason you like it
Are you saying is better right now with the waifu and the sister dog and the retarded brother? Because fuck no, i want that shit to end and for my edgy to come back
This. Such a comfy manga.
when I finished it I just sat there for like a half hour not doing anything.
Ironically, it was /a/ who show me this Manga, it's been a while since that.
I actually loved it, the anticlimax made their rivalry so bitter and meaningless. It really fit the depraved existential nature of the book.
Same, I really would love it if someone translated his weirdly homoerotic Journey to the West.
Nice taste amigo, just finished that about a month ago.
Here's one of mine
I wonder what happens if Onizuka meet Kitano, i mean, would Onizuka figure out that he is a very nice person or he will snap out and chase him?
No, but my heart is at peace after reading it, never felt so comfy
The strongest manga of all time
Karakuri Circus. Hands down.
Nothing wrong with that.
KnJ, Berserk and Welcome to the NHK are my top 3.
I still want the anime remade based on the manga and animated by like... Bones or I.G.
Your taste is
Such a great ending too.
it is great, so why are you reading the badly scanned version?
yup. I broke after about four years and went over the raws. It's pretty easy to understand the themes/story the author was going for. Just made me want to see it translated more though.
I'll never understand /a/'s dislike for online readers. The only noticeable difference is the occasional watermark. And they're so small and in the corner that it doesn't really matter.
I read this a while ago but it was
Fuck all this edgemaster bullshit.
This is the greatest manga every made.
I thought this started out great and I enjoyed the romance with the literary girl but then it just kind of fizzled out. I felt that nothing was resolved and the ending was rushed.
Greatest what-the-hell-am-I-reading manga ever. Can't beat old school camp.
Isn't there a random guy standing alongside in the nearby pages?
Aria is indeed fantastic and a damn fine pick.
Still Yotsubato is not only great manga but a cultural icon. it's hard to find a better representative of /a/
great shit, love both densetsu and kyou kara. Never really found another series quite like them, there's just a certain kind of warm, fuzzy charm they have
God I miss that semen demon, so fucking horny through the entire manga.
TFW: stops at Chapter 10 out of 50 chapters
I like plenty of manga quite a lot, but a lot of them have some glaring flaw that keeps me from naming it my favorite. I think dorohedoro's crime of being just too broad in scope is the lesser of the evils, so there you have it.
That doesn't happen though. He becomes an astronaut.
Palepoli is great. Give Obrigado a read if you haven't. Not 4koma but they both have a similar absurd comedy vibe.
I read Fourteen earlier last year. It was by far the most bizarre thing I've ever read. Makes Ito and Kago look like mainstream stuff.
I still can't tell if it was supposed to be a comedy or a horror manga, though.
This is my favorite manga, easily. And this was my favorite chapter, which was not in the anime.
I loved Aria so much. I also loved other similar series such as YKK, Yotsuba, My Girl, SoreMachi.
I think YKK's ending was great.
It's really depressing because everything feels dead, a lot of time has passed and I was a bit mad to see Alpha staying in her cafe all alone. But then, nope, she's still enjoying new experiences and at the last page it's
fucking Kokone welcomehoming her. They're living together and it made my heart melt.
I loved YKK. The scene where Alpha--I think it was Alpha--gets hugged and was clutching a pistol ready to kill said A LOT about the world that was otherwise left unsaid. It just seemed like an extremely dark tone in an otherwise light hearted manga.
Also, for content. The World is Mine. It's such a difficult thing to read, but so worth it.
>My favorite manga
>Reads it on mangafox
Maybe he was just googling a quick image to post for it?
Didn't expect to like every single character in this manga, but I did.
Everything has already been posted, so here's a surprisingly good sports manga.
Isn't the point of Planetes in both the anime and manga that there are people who do not change? They are challenged in their beliefs, but hold to them for better or worse?
Tanabe in the Anime kind of exemplifies that, where as Hachi in the manga does.
To me, YKK had a lot of mysterious, depressing undertones. Alpha and her pals were like the last rays of light before the sun finally set on humanity.
It makes me feel comfy, but also a bit lonely.
YKK is really the perfect balance between happiness and depression. I think it demonstrate how one can find beauty in everything, even in a slowly dying world. Alpha is so human it hurts me.
I'll calling pasta rice is my favorite sports manga. The first couple volumes have a shit translation, though, so consider watching like half of the anime or something.
I really liked The Lucifer and Biscuit hammer ... it was really sappy in the end, but I like sappy.
It was at the forefront of the deluge of "I want to destroy the world" mangas, which on average I hate ... but I didn't mind it here.
YKK was comfy as fuck, but reading it made me unreasonably angry
>going quietly into that good night: the Manga
Full fucking retard. If it didn't make me mad, it'd have made me depressed. I prefer my mad, thankyouverymuch.
I hate how Viz released it left-to-right
To be slightly fair, it was done years ago. And Tezuka reads alright right to left or left to right generally. Other manga, not so much. Blame is especially jarring and BotI as well. You can feel it slanted the other way.
Literally the greatest manga ever.
I believe the TV show arc was the anime original ending. They were filming some shitty sentai movie.
In the manga I remember Tamaki and her team got rekt in the first round by the best kendoka in the country so she sat the fuck down and watched the best girls fight in the final.
Let's be honest here, this much like OPT are rec threads, and everyone who says, "But I can troll in OPT threads by posting good pages from bad series" is just horribly deluding themselves into thinking their actions change anything, or that there won't be some people who actually enjoy the things they think the are "trolling" with
They weren't always around, and people really didn't post sauce. On the other hand, people have been casually talking about manga for ages. It's more like an excuse so that the anime population doesn't give a shit because of the false dichotomy. On the other hand OPT threads are mostly just shit anyways.
>A lot of people like it, therefore it's shit
Nice opinion. Monster is still a masterpiece.
I don't think the author has put a new chapter in the last 5 years, since she got sick.
She put like two chapters of some other manga, and that's about all she's done in 5 fucking years. Got to feel for her, she must have been really fucking sick.
Humanity dying is sad, but everything must come to an end someday. I find it beautiful that even in that particularily harsh setting, people can find beauty, in the very simple things of life. I wish I could be more like that too.
I don't know if I would call either of those the best I've ever read, but I certainly don't think worse of you for picking them.
