Opinions are totally divided for that manga (even between supposed Asano Inio fans). You can't call something overrated when there's a lot of people who call it shit even if it's for retarded reasons.
>>
>>120472690
Most people that call it shit are just contrarians and try to troll.
The few readers who actually have a bad impression about the manga are far outweighted by the rabid fans who call it literally the best manga to ever exist.

Your trips and my opinion agree with you. There's people who can only see the "edgy" aspects of Punpun but lack the sensitivity to appreciate it (only talking about the narrative, plot and character development, if you can't appreciate the visual part then you're clearly retarded). And I'm not even calling their taste shitit for their lack of sensitivity, btw.

It's just another technique. It looks like shit if you don't know how to use it. Still doesn't make his drawing style, character design and panel composition any less than good. He's top level and you know it, even if you don't like using shooped photos for the backgrounds.

The only reason you people like punpun is because main character is a bird. Replace with an actual human and you lose all charm and end up with a manga that goes dark for the sake of it.

It's a classic and definitely have some great ideas/parts, but it's plenty of stupid shit too.
And i mean that leaving alone the whole deal with the ending being rushed as fuck, then LO and now the newest serie (which i don't think anybody gives a shit about, i saw a thread only for the first chapter and then never again).

Most of my picks have already been mentioned, so I'm going to mention the best manga I've read in 2014. I just love it, from the art to the characters and the story.

Isn't Seki the kid who almost killed someone for a bit of money? Shit's edgy.
The uncle, or Punpun's friend are more human characters than the rest of the cast.

>>120473963

Picked it up thinking it was going to be young boys living on a desolated Earth, under ruins and all.
But fuck me if i wasn't surprised after it turned into druglords, rape, cyborgs, boipussy rape, despair in every chapter and quantum physics.
Had a great pace, though. Not the best thing around but a very enjoyable read.

Not really. Obviously the premise is similar to Eva's, but it deals with the characters in totally different ways - Eva's about the characters' depression and needs, and Bokurano's about the characters confronting death and moral responsibility.

>>120473487
Yes, Spirit Circle is great. Definitely my favorite from Mizukami. The arcs have had ridiculously touching endings up until now.

I'd like to submit Planetes as well. Apparently, some anons watched it together because moot said he liked the anime, but the manga is definitely worth reading as well. While I felt the story kind of peaked after volume 3, with Hachimaki speaking to the cat in space, the volume 4 chapters were nice. This one, in particular, was crushing.

He never drops the front and he almost does it. He stopped because of a completely random thing, meaning that he could've done it without much difficulty. I'm sorry, but the combination is just too big. "i don't give a fuck" look + kid + being an inch away to murder someone for just a bit of money. At least if he didn't approach the guy at all, it would've been believeable.
We're talking about a manga where the MC asks his love interest to gouge his eye with a fork and yells at her for not doing it thoroughly. How is it not edgy?

1. just because he acts like he doesn't give a fuck about anything doesn't mean he doesn't actually give a fuck about anything. see shimuzu (that's that one kid's name right? i don't remember haven't read it in a while)
2. yeah I dunno dude is losing his fucking mind, the whole thing is about how mentally unstable he is, I don't think that's necessarily edgy. It handles the themes that it introduces pretty well very consistently. It definitely isn't not grimdark or whatever, but that doesn't make it poorly written or executed.

The author could've shown him acting more human. I don't care when you're not supposed to empathize with the character but it's the case in Punpun.

Losing his mind or not, first it's a really stupid choice for both Aiko and him (for obvious reasons), and he shouldnt have been able to talk after getting his eye stabbed by a fork.

of course it was a stupid thing to do, he coerced her to do it and he's mentally unstable. Also it's fiction, and at its roots it is totally absurd.

Pegasus wasn't a psychopath. He was an actual hero.

My point is that this scene was unecessary. I loved the uncle scenes, I loved Punpun's development at some point and the side characters were great but it was too edgy for me sometimes, especially near the end.

20th CB is my favourite Urasawa because it feels the least like an aping of Tezuka and yet still a very personal story from him but it does get too convoluted to be a masterpiece. And yeah the ending is shit.

Shit ending. I can't abide for a sport series that end with the protagonist getting fucked up, also the lack of depth on the sport and low number of matches hardly make it the cut as a good sport series.

To put it simple, he is after humans with special genes that grant access to what would be our "internet". In doing so, they have a way to completely wipe the main antagonists of the manga, the silicon life forms (once humans).

Homunculus was good but I wouldn't say it was a masterpiece.

please, it went to shit when they introduced vampires out of nowhere before abandoning that plot out of nowhere

I agree completely. Fair to say that Nihei's work consistently comes pretty close, imo.

I could make a joke about how new you are but I felt the same frustration when I first came to /a/.

Just lurk more, you're gonna get there eventually. I'll give you a little hint - those tiny arrowy things behind the postnumber are there for a reason, so I advise you to check' em

Kingdom is shounen in everything but name, with just perhaps more death.

I like Lone Wolf but sometimes it did get really predictable, especially early on. Sometimes Itto goes around like Kenshiro with almost no challenge and no doubt what the outcome will be. Also the artist is really good at drawing different looking men but almost every woman looks the same.

Thats what seinen is..

Also on the shounen masterpieces line. I'd say soul eater manga is as close to that as any other.

>the mangaka went overboard with the CGI in the last arc.

idk, I really liked the last arc and the cg made it kind of a cinematic reading experience which was really fitting.
you should check out one of his early works though, it looks like a total joke because the cg is so crappy. he's come a long way

actual character development now.

that kind of irritated me. to be honest the manga lost me a bit during the little girl exorcism arch, felt a bit too gloomy imo. but I guess it's a good thing one doesn't stick to formula and tries new things once in a while.

His new manga's digital effects are pretty good, hopefully he gets time to make a decent gantz epilogue in the next year or so.

Its better if you read it all at once, it got a bit dull waiting for the basically monthly releases of it.

I wish there were decent scans for this. past chapter 10 or so it goes to duwang levels of shit.

does it get better again or do you have some secret sauce?

That looks a lot better than the stuff in Gantz. Judging from some of his older stuff it seems like he's always been interested in CG.
>>
>>120484074
The thing is on Batoto the duel page scans are pretty good quality while the single page scans look like shit.

Can't really say on the translations, just glad that some spanishbro translates both languages

You sure you read the fucking manga man? That's exactly what is shown to happen to Sakuragi all the way to the end, his character growth as he very quickly comes to realize that he really fucking loves basketball and its not about the girl, idk what that fuck you're on srsly, its always about the games, just because the girl is there doesn't make it about her.

It was okay, decent characters but terrible development. Very good but far from a masterpiece. The ending is also kinda meh.

Can't think of a single flaw to this manga, the only manga I'd truly consider a masterpiece.
>>
>>120484362
Yeah I know he changes, like I said I just wish it happened earlier or didn't happen at all. The manga was great, but I didn't really enjoy the beginning. It's actually one of my favorite manga, but having such an unenjoyable part of the manga for me makes it not a masterpiece.

If it pulls off a good ending I could easily see it being close to perfect. Fantastic art, premise, story, characters, shit's all good. Slightly confusing but its a mystery so its understandable.

My amigo, One Outs is underrated as shit, under Liar Game's shadow just because people are afraid of trying sports manga.
