It has shock value done right, unlike Akame ga Kill or SnK and that art is fucking perfect
>>
>>117715204
I didn't know about it either. It does look pretty good though.
>>
>>117715204
Not /a/ related unless you mean School Rumble.

Your fault for not watching a movie, and manga is not popular enougth in the west for anyone to care.

It's not particularity good

Botched Tokyopop translation, unlikeable characters and half of them look like they're over the age of 30 even though they're supposed to be 14-16 years old

There are better gore/horror series

Of course I've heard about it, I already watched the movie and knew that there's a manga but I never thought it was this good because the movie is fucking butchered, bad directed and has an horrible acting
>>
>>117715204
>Google Batte Royale

Dafuq?

The book came out in 1999, or is this a new meme?

Honest response: You should probably leave.

Are you kidding?

The Tokyopop version is a rewrite by an American comic author. It's still good though, all things considered.

The movie was overrated.

The novel was published in English and then published again relatively recently with a new translation.

The sequel stuff is blah.
Angels' Border is ok, I guess.

Actually, they are middle school students in the Japanese system.

>>117715204
It's one of my favorites, it's a shame /a/ hates it.
>>
>>117715204
Everyone knows the movie but the manga's much better.dont know about the novel though.
>>
>>117717659

Said novel is said source material for both film and manga....


sooooo yeah
>>
>>117717702
the author said the manga is the definitive version because it adds more backstories
>>
A few things:
The manga's translation was butchered badly. It is way edgier than the original work was and added stupid shit that didn't even exist in the original script.
Tokyopop hired a comic book writer to "adapt" what was basically word-for-word from the original book, which you can of course buy in unbutchered English book form. That is why Koushin Takami gets writer credit for the manga.

The only reason I buyfagged this series was because there were no scans and I wanted to see Sugimura fight Kiriyama. I was always butthurt movie-Sugimura went down like a bitch.
BR book >> BR1 movie > BR1 manga in moon >>>>>> BR2 movie > butchered BR1 manga > BR2 manga
>>
>>117717821
>Sugimura and even fucking Kotohiki throwing psiballs
No, fuck it. The manga is garbage.
The only thing interesting about it is Kiriyama's jacket.
>>
>>117715204
Significatively better than SnK.
AgK still better though.
>>
>>117715204
/a/ is stupid OP. The manga for this is amazing. It's the first manga I ever read that made me feel emotional and sad. Granted I discovered it in 10th grade, but still. Even with english script criticisms, that art is god tier enough to make up for it.

Unless anyone could recommend better gore art with a better story.

What is Gantz?

At least till katastrophe start, then all went to shit.

It was shit.

How come you never told me about THIS, /a/?

I don't understand fucking anything about Mahjong but goddamnit he's just so likable
>>
>>117715547
Not sure if you're baiting or if you're just too young to know that Battle Royale came way earlier than Hunger Games, but fuck you, it's the other way round

Hunger Games is a cheap rip-off of Battle Royale. Do your research brah.

Anon, come on.

>>
>>117715204
His aim is awful, who is he shooting?
>>
>>117715204
I would have liked this much more if:
1- everyone didn't have silly faces. I still don't get how the artist can be so good at everything but faces.
2- Kiriyama was nerfed to have less ammo and didn't have that horrible "oh god I got shot in the brain better do ridiculous poses while I have a flashback" in the end
3- the manga translation wasn't completely butchered
4- it wasn't so edgy

Imported this shit from Spain back in the day. What was so bad about the English translation exactly?
Any examples?
