Deviant-Art tier manga, how did this became so popular?
By having fun comedy with an interesting world and great characters with unique powers.
It also doesn't TRY to be art. Deviant-art tier manga would be people trying their best and it looks like shit, but they still think it's acceptable. It's also cringe worthy as fuck.
This is someone who knows he can't draw, but wants to convey a story to people with a format people can understand. His paneling is actually pretty good and it's enjoyable to read.
The art doesn't try to be something it's not, and neither does this manga.
>deviant art tier
isn't pixvix jap deviant art? and isn't some of the stuff really good like deviant art too?
Everyone knows ONE's style and they love it too. Even Murata uses it with his ultra detailed style sometimes, and the PV of Mob Psycho 100 is almost entirely in that style.
Face it, maybe he's a shit artist, but its delicious shit.
>Not knowing how to draw.
Nigga that guy can draw pretty well, and his paneling is great.
He's just lazy.
His art isn't the greatest but One Punch Man is him being half assed.
He can do a lot if he actually works at it.
It wouldn't be made by a western artist. That's why anime and manga is so great to begin with.
Western comics are so fucking boring. Nevermind that most of them are capeshit, even the other comics are just boring.
There are like 20 series max of western shit I enjoyed.
>tfw Tails Gets Trolled will never have a renowned comic book artist pick it up.
>tfw Tails Gets Trolled will never later be green lit to have a cartoon.
imagine the copyright issues alone
I got into it after some guy did a really good dramatic reading of it on youtube when it was popular on /v/. I didn't expect to enjoy it straight just because it was pure insanity and nostalgia.
>If this was made by a western artist literally nobody would follow it
It's not just because of the art, but because American shit is always preachy with some kind of message attached.
For instance we'd have some sob story about mean evangelicals harassing poor Pri-Pri just because he rapes guys. Also there'd be a very special episode dealing with Aids.
Metal bat would look like eminem and speak in ebonics, and would have to deal with urban "issues", like a friend OD'ing.
Pig God would be a hypocritical redneck southerner who's always proven wrong by Tatsumaki, a smart, sharp-tongued SJW who teaches feminist history.
Blast would be an old, menschish New York jew, who has to deal with anti-semitism even in those he saves.
Fubuki would struggle against institutionalized sexism, and in a very special episode, deal with a sexual harasser.
you look at the shit on cartoon network and tell me thats still true
heck look at the shit on Disney XD and tell me that applies
and don't say 'well it was like that back then' because I sure remember saban making shows out of japanese mecha series like beattleborgs with a haunted house full of stereotypes including a jewnose gay vampire and sharkmen riding skateboards
face it, cartoons are crazy wherever you go, not just nipprawn.
This is Superhero manga for teens, not TV cartoons for little kids. Look at any equivalent shit from Marvel and DC. Even fucking Archie is full of PSA's and gay characters.
A cancer patient with a redditors ethics.
No shit, It got popular in Japan because it plays on tropes done to death in shonen manga and vidya. The premise is literally just one drawn out joke that wouldn't work nearly as well anywhere else.
Oh don't get me wrong, I'd be pretty upset of Japan wasn't a thing.
I like the culture in anime and manga and I like that Japan gives me these things, as well as great porn.
The porn, that's what would really fuck my life up without.
But I don't care about Japan in itself.
>If this was made by a western artist literally nobody would follow it
It's like you haven't even seen the current state of western art.
People might follow it but it wouldn't have the same amount of popularity and probably wouldn't have a tv show. No one in America gives a shit about comics or cartoons compared to Japan.
The exception would be corporate shit like Marvel and DC always being made into blockbuster films.
>It was extremely popular in the Japanese internet before Murata's version.
Not extremely popular at all. I think it had many viewer on the internet compared to other internet manga, but not popular.
It became popular here Japan because we heard French people started to pick up Murata's version manga.
Pretty sure it's popular because it's basically a shonen hero living the life of a hero long after he became the strongest motherfucker ever. Saitama doesn't train anymore, he just punches shit because it inexplicably shows up, but it's boring as fuck. It also addresses the fucked up nature of how someone with a lot of ability doesn't get credit for a bunch of amazing shit they do, and other people sometimes can't even recognize that ability. It explores a lot of relatable themes that don't normally get talked about, and it does it in a fun way.
this is why i only watch eastern animation television/anime now.
Literally EVERYTHING has a fucking agenda behind it so fcking annoying
This is not even joke probably.
I still can't get why are people on /a/ obsessed with races of anime characters. For Japanese people, we naturally ignore which ethnic group or minority group they belong to. Americans are obsessed with "Political Correctness" which is just a bunch of Whites' circlejerk. Their PC culture only makes minority harder to live but at least it makes White people believe they have done something to "weaker" minorities.
I'm really glad I was born and raised in Japan.
>There are like 20 series max of western shit I enjoyed.
To be fair, a lot of the detail in MP100 are from his assistants. Weekly manga are a collaborative effort; although I don't doubt ONE's art is improving, it's hard to point at any one page or panel of MP100 as a definitive example of his work alone.
I actually stopped way back when Great finished for some reason. Wasn't aware it was still (until a month ago) updating.
Thanks. I guess I'll check /co/ archive for more.

I chuckled. What about Sweet Mask? Would there even be a lesbian kouhai like Lily in it?
Why mob gets no love even though its much better than OPM?
It may not have been an extremely well-known manga in general, but it's always been the most popular webmanga. It's just that webmanga weren't that well-known yet, and OPM helped change it a lot.
Speak for yourself. It's great. Can't wait for the anime.
To compare the two, I'd say OPM has been more solid throughout most of its story compared to MP100, which really can't be helped as OPM has had longer "arcs" while MP100 has had to hop through several "short" arcs between its more major ones and people here can't appreciate the more sentimental, thoughtful aspects of the story.
As for characters, we've certainly gotten to know the HA heroes "better" than the auxiliary cast of MP100. No, no, the Body Improvement Club is great. They're all bros. But we didn't get to know them as well as, say, Teruki or Dimple. Or Reigan, who's pretty much the best character. OPM has had a better "spread", but MP100 focuses more on some individuals more than others.
And ignoring all the kids who keep calling ONE the god of writing, he doesn't actually always keep the humor up. Early-Mid MP100 was a lot funnier than current, end-game MP100. I'd say it peaked in terms of humor at the end of the first CLAW arc after everybody was rescued. There have been a few laughs since then, but MP100 started focusing more on its themes of relating with others in society than it did on the comedy. I feel the same way with the last few updates in OPM's webcomic. It got some laughs from me, but not big ones. It'll be Murata's art that will carry these scenes through once he gets to redrawing them.
All in all, if we're already at the end of MP100, I'd say it wasn't a bad run. It certainly didn't turn to shit and I appreciate how it conveyed its messages (as "generic" as they are) through showing the development of Mob and the other major characters of the cast.
>MP100 anime soon
i hope this will make
i've reread the first encounter between Mob and Dimple and goddamn 100% Angry Mob is such an edgy kid
i'm glad he doesnt appear again later in the manga
