Ready for Nisio's return in jump square? scanlation is out!
First Obata/Ohba, Now this. I'm pleased, always thought they're more suited to monthly series.
>This guy's a piece of shit!
Always gets me
>MC is literally just Kumagawa
dropped harder than burning coal.
Medaka Box is my favorite mnga, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out
And she's extremely cute, I see no downsides.
Holy shit Nisio already went all out
I couldn't find any other word, it's not interesting because I wouldn't want to look more into it and it's not weird because it isn't hard to believe. In the end I just put funny.
How would it even be possible? So far we only see things from the characters' points of view and they see all names, faces, and proper nouns as black scribbles or patchwork scraps of fabric, respectively. I suppose maybe they could learn each others' names eventually.
Godfuckingdammit Nisio, stop writing retarded nonsense and pretending it makes sense and then making me enjoy it.
well the series is just called shonen shoujo so I see it very possible that they literally never receive names (unless they have some sort of emotional bonding scene were he goes I CAN FINALLY REMEMBER SOMEONE'S NAME AND IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL and all that crap, calling it, it will happen)
Thought it was a one shot considering the limited potential of the story. Guess it'll have to supernatural to keep going for more than 2-3 chapters? We already got a hint with the "???" guy.
It's fucking nisio this will be 50 trillion volumes of SOL and nothing happening.
What's nonsense about this?
This is his most straightforward work yet.
Just a boy who has a disease and wants to be a popular main character? Did you not understand it or something? It's pretty basic humor, just re-read it again.
>This is actually hood
You what my nigga?
Katanagatari was like that
Medaka box was like that
Monogatari was like that
Zaregoto was like that
He always does the same fucking shit for way too long with literaly nothingness, get told bro
>the guy with the Hawaiian punch in one hand and another under his arm
>the guy with the red sweater over his shoulder looking like he's trying to solve the Theory of Everything
>(unless they have some sort of emotional bonding scene were he goes I CAN FINALLY REMEMBER SOMEONE'S NAME AND IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL and all that crap, calling it, it will happen)
Nigga this Nisio Isin, if that happens it's going to be satrical as fuck.
That didn't stop it from being really fuckin' good
Well he obviously didn't.
Fucking Zaregoto though, I need more character like MC.
>Kumagawa is the perfect example of everything wrong
Yeah, he get that a lot.
>An entire manga with not-Kumagawa as the protagonist
Let's hope he stays that way.
>implying this manga won't be about 2 dying children trying to kill each other with the entirety of japan in the way
>implying it won't have fantastical superpowers and bullshit all the way through
this is gonna be a fun series to follow i think.
>Medaka Box is shallow as fuck compared to his other works.
Probably because Nisio wasn't trying to be particularly "deep" with it and was instead just having fun. Manga in general seems to be something Nisio uses just to fuck around with random ideas.
Fuck NisiO or Akira thought ahead this time. NisiO already burned through at least 120+ character designs in Medaka Box.
By scribbling everyone out, Akira doesn't have to come up with unique designs.
I'm relating to this manga far more than I should
Nisio is taking the piss out of individualism here, sasuga Nisio
I know I should've been feeling like
>What a shitty kid, he just want to be a special snowflake
But for some reason and I don't even know why the only thing I can think is
>No, seriously, why this kid can't be a special snowflake?
I don't know how minds work /a/, but is this kid that wrong about wanting to be special at least once?
take every expectation the reader has, lead them right up to it, then flip the chessboard over at the last second and somehow make it seem like nothing strange happened
Platinum End is edgy because it takes the edge 100% seriously. This series seems like it wants to take a piss on the edginess by having the MC be a huge edgefag because of his own perceived lack of identity and general inadequacy, not because the edge is meant to be taken seriously.
Just because the art style is dark doesn't mean that the meta jokes and puns and to be taken seriously.
>MC is happy cause he became a tragic protagonist
>wants to be the only special snowflake in the world, is happy he got a disease nobody has
>then a girl shows up with the same disease
>no longer special snowflake
This is like a /r9k/er getting mad at another /r9k/er for doing a shootout first before him.
Based Nisio fuckery I can't grow tired of
And Akira bringing the art that matches Nisio's style of these stories to the T.
I can relate tho
If you're not a hedonist then a legacy is the only thing you can really accomplish in life
But most people die having lived shitty lives and accomplished nothing
So who will be the next FRESH character /a/?
Will this bitch meta ninja her way in?
It looks interesting even if I can't see how it could develop and how they will introduce supernatural powers and shit (if they do).
anyone saying that this is edgy is totally full retarded. It's literally a parody of an edgy kid trying everything to be special, even if that means being hated, ill, curel ecc.
This makes no sense, if people had already died from the disease, MC is fucked and wouldn't be special. What's he's mindset on this? Is he just dumb because he's a little kid?
>Is he just dumb because he's a little kid?
You must either be blind or retarded to not notice that. It's a kid so obsessed with being special and different that he would be happy to die of an unknown illness, when the doctor said he would die at the age of 12 everyone thought he would be shocked but he was happy. It's totally a parody, Nisio took a concept and exaggerated it.
Are you stupid? The kid even thought about it. >>135716633
There is no reason to believe he could leave hisname. Plus, the symptoms are different for the girl than they are for him.
There are two possibilities here. Either the illness causes him to get all kind of fucked up. Or, he has always been that way and the illness is his ticket for adventures.
Man, I don't really care about Nisio all that much, but Akatsuki's artstyle is really nice.
Kumagawa isn't an edgy brat.
if you read zaregoto, you know his problem is actually against people more talented than he is and generally how people can grow bitter at those who are special-er than others, that was the entire point of that book 4 scientist's beef against kunagisa, he's an incredible genius to some but this little brat made him feel like an idiot. Just like in real life he's probably insanely frustrated that his works are just teenbait crap with harems and shit and not whatever actual good writting he likes to read.
Basically, Nisio's always been a jealous cunt and he takes it out on his writting.
>Basically, Nisio's always been a jealous cunt and he takes it out on his writting.
I've always read it as him having a massive boner for "special" people and the reactions they draw from people. I mean, his Aikawa Jun template is pretty much his fap material, right?
I'm having a hard time coming across the rest of gakkyu hotei.
Where can I get it? I remember there was a kind anon who made a weekly thread of this and other series from viz uploading them to mega.
The doctor's insistence that he's going to die before 12, when it's a very rare and unstudied disease, was fucking weird.
But MC clearly just decided for himself that he needs to die first to get it named after himself. The brat does have actual, clinical brain problems, so his interpretations of things aren't necessarily going to reflect reality.
>never reveal names during the story
>they both died, but we're not told when
>narration mentions the name of the disease
>it's a completely gender-neutral name
