Did you even read it?
>>
>>116455131
Well, I implore you to reconsider. First of all, the characters are all exceedingly well written and their interactions are interesting, which is what really sets it apart from shounen, which is only good for action. Secondly, the philosophy contained within the plot is genuinely interesting. Finally, the action sequences are pretty cool, and serve to break up the SOL which dominates the manga.

If you gave up *before* anima appeared, or *before* all the beast knights gather, give it another shot. You won't regret it, I think.
>>116455146
>It's mediocre
What is an opinion? It was required reading in the sense that everybody loved and talked about it, if you didn't know about it or hadn't read it, you were called a pleb and mocked. This may be before your time though.
>>
>>116455151
Having already read it, my biggest criticisms since years ago was how under par the drawings were. I said the same about SnK and people told me it was a style despite the inconsistencies with things like arm length and hand size. Then SnK got popular and suddenly people agreed with me.
>>
>>116455188
Just because a million people are wrong doesn't make it right. Shounen is a demographic.

Berserk and K-on are both seinen. Naruto and Azumango are both shounen.

People will generally jump down your throat for using the wrong term, so just stop using it. Just say it's a "shitty/mediocre/overrated/etc battle manga". Problem solved.

It's fine to have different opinions. I'm not saying Samidare is the greatest manga of all time, obbjectively. It just happens to be my favourite, and if someone gets the wrong idea about it (e.g. generic battle shounen), I feel impelled to convince them to give it a second, fair try. I want to share what I consider to by my favourite anime. If they give it a another fair go and consider it mediocre, that's fine.

It has a clearly defined and distinct art-style, which is a lot more than you get in most series.
Mizukami's strong-point is switching tones when scenes calls for it anyways, not necessarily having every page be highly details.
>>
>>116455530
It just means boy and young adult. I fail to see how it can't apply to anime as well as manga.

>>116455589
I already said there are exceptions, and besides, when one is using it in context to whatever is being discussed, it is going to be compared to the similar manga/anime within the demographic.

Of course nobody is going to compare darker than black to something like keion.

Yes, this. One Punch Man and that arabian carpet manga both have wonderfully detailed art, but that's not the objective standard by which to judge art styles.

No, see you just can't accept that you're a fucking retard and just admit you're wrong. You are very specifically talking about Jump battle manga as if all shounen are completely identical. How many more times do you need to be shown you're wrong before you just accept it?

Because people cannot use it correctly within that context. Whereas with a magazine that is blatantly one or the other, anime does not, especially one that is not an adaptation. All you get are arbitrary designations and arguments over whether or not it is or it isn't.

In context of manga it means the magazine it is serialised in. In context of anime it means fucking nothing because japanese tv does not have such concept, instead they have "timeslots".

>the art was kind of soulless.
Yeah, that's just a shitty empty opinion. Not trying to be rude here, but seriously? Soulless? What do you mean by that? It may be missing something, but soul ain't it. That doesn't even make sense considering how emotive the characters are.

This should be common sense. I'm not talking about Lucky Star, which I acknowledge exists as a shounen.

No mate. One thing is having a style (which I agree, the author does have) but that doesn't make all his drawings exempt from mistakes.

Shit happens, it took a while for his style to come together, just like with most artists.

I explained what I meant immediately after that statement. I could look at a random panel from my top however many manga and immediately be able to tell what it is from the art alone. The art in LBH didn't really feel unique enough for me. The art just felt like generic manga art #803.

I don't know, I don't think Lucifer's art is generic or soulless. I can pick out the mangaka's style vs. other manga, and as some other anons have said he's able to adapt his art to convey emotions that he wants to present at certain panels.
Although I guess "conveying emotions" really depends on the reader. It did it for me.

Above average, overall fun ride but you need to be able to stand samidares personality

Which is advertising the live-action movie.
>>
>>116456719
I want this, but at the same time, I feel it just works best as a manga. It uses the panel transitions really well and there's not that much action to animate.

Zombie Gainax announces that they're doing an adaptation, but they've only got the money for one cour.

What's the best thing they could do?

That explains it. I was wondering why the hell there'd be an anime of this now.

What.
>>
>>116456830
Yes, that's the one. I believe the author also draws sublime female butts.
>>
>>116456873
Different anon, there's nothing wrong with disliking the personalities of characters.
I managed to enjoy the manga without liking the behaviour of the main characters.

If you wouldn't be Samidare's personal knight, you don't know shit about best girls.

I think being able to tolerate the main characters would be a prerequisite for any series really.

Fuck you. Don't tell me that shit. Don't you fucking dare say that shit.

I don't even read it. Duralumin has been translating that shit instead of the greatest fucking arc in Spirit Circle to date. I had to live with seven months of nothing until I finally just said fuck it and got the CR scans.

Don't tell me that whatever he's working on is shit. I would feel so spit on right now. why.
>>
>>116457251
A) grow up
B) he stopped on spirit circle because he's scared of CR, like all scanlators seem to be

>>116457069
Starring the wacky adventure of Aloha Owl and his troubles dealing with university life and his cute turtle-waifu.

Don't say you wouldn't watch it /a/.

Focuses on the friendship and romance between mantis and mouse.
Bookended by "I love you" and "I know"
>>
>>116456827
Yeah I suspect an animu adaptation of Spirit Circle would reach the current chapter in about seven or eight episodes.

They always ruin the pacing.
>>
>>116457597
I haven't seen any of this. Turns out it was from chapter 64.5, not available on Batoto.

I just went to Batoto to pull those pages anon.

Is this the Seven Seas marketing thread?
>>
>>116457853
Go away /v/.
>>
>>116457853
Not that I have any intention of buying any, but this thread has actually made me aware that Seven Seas has licenced a whole lot of stuff I didn't expect. Even that horse pussy centaur manga.

/v/ has nothing to do with this, shill.

It's not about how long it is, it's about how thick it is and how heavy it must be. It's the size of a god damn textbook.
>>
>>116458167
Not great. Honestly I'd rather reread it on my tablet. I'm a bit worried about bend the spine too.
>>
the paperback will get ruined by reading something of that size
>>
>>116458167
The same way you read any normal book that size?
>>
>>116454798
Gotta help those brick and mortar stores.
>>
>>116458516
It's just the size of two regular volumes stuck together?

Manga is pretty small, you know.
>>
>>116453347
Thanks for reminding me OP. Just went ahead and bought it.
>>
>>116456845
From vol 1 until the first ever assembly of the surviving knights. That, I think, was an awesome moment. Of course, it'll cover the Dog Knight arc
>>
Dunno, series didn't really do much for me. Greatly enjoyed the first half and than just lost interest with the whole "okay we killed that one now it's going up a number and changing and we have to figure out how to kill the new one" stuff.

Not a bad series, just lost interest for me.
>>
>>116456003
>Just this one. MRSP is $18.99 a pop, but amazon has it for about $15.
Jesus Christ, what the fuck. That's what translated manga goes for nowadays? You can get raws for 300-400 yen brand new, and even 50-100 yen if you go the used route (Extremely good condition, too)

This is about as good as we could hope for. Even back in the day, SJ volumes went for around 8 bucks.

Nice stuff like vertical releases cost $12.95 a volume right now.

Still pissed that it doesn't use Biscuit Hammer for the OP.

Amazon is a shit company for their business practices that mercilessly bullies authors and smaller publishers.
And I say this about to start work there for a couple months or so.
>>
>>116454849
Fuck that ending. 12 eyes was a shit. Princess should have had to deal with the fact she was dying and would be left behind like every other fucker ever.
>>
>>116460282
Fuck, that's adorable. More?
>>
>>116458167
Motherfucker you don't even know huge. OP's book is average for a 2 volume manga.
And these don't compare to the old compendium of 20th century news I have laying around.
That book is a legitimate weapon by itself.

Lucifer is a person stupid not an object

>>116453347
Why is this so revered?
Is it very famous and supposedly very good?

I am out of the loop.
>>
>>116455266
That's a very shounen-like ending
>>
>>116461252
I read the first few pages of the first book a while back. Given the size of those books is the series a good read?
>>
>>116455608
>It has a clearly defined and distinct art-style, which is a lot more than you get in most series.
That's a fancy way of saying it looks like shit. You're worse than the Bleachfags who claim Kubo's laziness is called minimalism

It is absolutely the second best space opera series I've read (behind Dune) but it is a bit slow getting started. Maybe 225-300 pages before the action really gets going.
When you get to the first satanic rape scene and the portal to the Beyond is opened shit really starts to go down.
This really doesn't do it justice but:
>magical space zombies
>space Al Capone
>loli sex... IN SPACE
Really all I can complain about is the slow beginning (which you'll see is actually a good thing here), kinda crappy ending, and perhaps TOO much sex, especially in 0G. My boners were distracting at times.
>>
>>116461563
Here's the main shit:
>accessible plot
>had reliable scanlation groups (this is the most important shit)
>fun to follow on /a/
>fun characters

From that it snowballed into some popularity like OMK. That doesn't say anything about how "good" the manga is; Popularity never does.

>>116461701
>MUH REALISM
Don't you have some brown and grey games to go play, loser?

Imagine if you mixed FLCL with Saint Seiya
>>
>>116461563
Imagine a Seinen Slice-of-life manga crossed with a Shonen Battle manga. The result is a very well-told coming of age story.

I'm betting on an anime adaptation sometime between the next two seasons and the next two years.
