could someone recommend me some manga that is emotionally relate-able. I'm not talking shoujo shit like fruits basket but darker more realistic dramas like punpun, boys on the run, solanin, or even something more broad like 21st century boys. It's pretty open ended in terms of genre, but I just need something that can get me thinking.
The manga is VERY different to the anime.
It's much darker, and the story is longer. Misaki waifufags hate it though, because the anime actually ruined her character, and the manga portrayed it exactly how the author wanted... which again, is much darker than the anime.
Though I'd recommend reading the novel too. It's great, but far from as good as the manga.
I like River's Edge. It's short and has weird scribbly art but I like it.
More like 180.
One day he's... you know, like that, and the next... well, you know what happens.
That ain't character development. That's character stripping.
Also, more importantly, I liked him a lot at the beginning, and hated him at the end. Kinda like with 8man, though 8man's gradual personality change (notice the "gradual"? That's what makes it character development) is tame as shit compared to Kurosawa's.
