I don't think i'd consider any manga i've read to be a masterpiece

Magi no Okurimono, Yotsuba and Bonnouji are three I can think of with almost no flaws, but thats more because they knew what they wanted to be and achieved it. I love both but they didn't reach overly high, whereas stuff like Palepoli have flaws but challenged the medium in new ways. National Quiz comes to mind as well, since it diverges from the traditional generic cliche's of manga and attempts to reach higher

That being said my favorite is Ares, even though objectively it isn't great since the writing is so weak and simple, character progression tends to be very sudden and often lacks concrete reasoning etc. Still love it regardless. So I guess just read what you enjoy and don't let flaws bother you since I sincerely believe manga is yet to produce a legitimate masterpiece

I can't consider anything that I have read as well a masterpiece, although my reading choices are heavily criticized. For example I really enjoy and love Terra formars and Gantz, there perfect examples of what I want Seinen to be and they show some of the best scenes.

At the moment I am a hero and TF are my clear favorites but for me to call them a masterpiece would be going a little bit to far for me personally. Although most people will hate anything I just said most likely.

I don't understand the hype of Holyland. The author butting in during fights with his commentaries and the last arc with the drug baron made the reading unbearable.

>>133710687
I really loved Gantz too, but boy did it have a rough patch. I remember reading the first 250 chapters in a week, then it took forever to get me to read the last 100. I just remember how the MC's personality shift went from selfish asshole, to a leader trying to save everybody, to "I gots to save my girlfriend :("

I couldn't stand the last personality shift, changed the whole dynamic of the manga.

When did the Punpun hate get so big? Even around New Year's, when it had already gotten really big in casual places, /a/ seemed to be more or less split on it, with some people liking it a lot and some thinking it was mediocre after the beginning. But now it seems like even mentioning it just attracts hate, and the only people who are defending it are obvious newfags and Hox.

>>133710434
Magi no Okurimono pisses me off with the ending. The "she's gone and he found someone else" ending is hard to sell me on, and it only gets harder when it's not supposed to be a fully sad ending, and even more when there's an established heaven and she's still existing in it.

It's cause tumblr grabbed on to it and /a/ didn't want to be associated. I can't even open a Punpun thread anymore, because it is true. Great at the beginning, still pretty great in the middle with sparks of brilliance, but the end, not a lot will even bother defending even if they enjoyed it. I'm just glad Pegasus' storyline got resolved, apart from that, trite ending.

Man I got so hyped when I saw Nishi back, he was such an awesome character and it's a shame what happened to Izumi.

I felt that they created the vampires to just kill Izumi and that's about it.

But Kurono changed during the series of Gantz, originally he looked like he was going to turn into Nishi but he followed Kato footsteps of wanting to save people espically at the beginning of the dinosaurs arc and as well Gantz is one of the very few series in which you can argue that the

Main character dies twice, once with the vampires and once when he gets cloned and fucks with the aliens. That was hilarious that Q&A scene though.

It's the opposite. You have to be very young or very sheltered to consider PunPun good and not edgy. No self-respecting adult would like this garbage.

I don't think any other manga comes close to the level of perfection that is Gon. I think the art is unparalleled compared to everything I have read and seen, I'm not saying there aren't other mangaka with that level of skill, just no other manga has that level of technique, artistry, detail and goddamn passion.

As for the story, many might think stuff like "it's not deep or thought provoking" Might be true but that doesn't make it any less perfect because that's not the type of story it set out to be, it did what it wanted to do and did it perfectly, and with no dialogue at all.

No, you have to be either under 12 or fucking retarded to dismiss everything slightly dramatic or compelling as "edgy" just because you can't understand it
>self-loathing faggot whose problems were entirely in his head
>entirely in his head
>what is depression
Considering the ridiculous amount of REAL edgy try-hards here on /a/ I'll probably be ridiculed for this, but mental conditions are not some emo kids thing, they are a serious problem for those who experience it, like depressed people. Aside from the fact that in Punpun's case his family was torn apart, you can lead on the surface a perfectly normal life but be miserable inside. So yes, (most of) his problems were inside his head, so what?

Oyasumi Punpun had its flaws, granted, but comments like these are the reason why some people see /a/ as a cancerous place

Well, later at least. First few chapters aren't that great, but the story is worth it at that time.

Not the same anon, but a manga doesn't have to only be targeted towards adults to be considered a masterpiece. The Catcher in the Rye is a perfect example for this.

But the art in general is way better than the original.

Yes, in the beginning, the art style is a bit bubbly, slice-of-life-y, but whenever shit hits the fan, it becomes more sharp and powerful.
>>
If it weren't for the rushed ending I think more people might agree. Great blend of multiple themes from romance to comedy and more serious issues related to growing up as well. Also great art and great writing. So many of the story arcs and characters motivations just felt so real and things always played out with a nice amount of drama but without going to far and resolving neatly, mostly. And, though I think the ending was stupidly rushed, I felt she managed to resolve a lot of things quite well and give a nice warm feeling that I needed to be satisfied after all the time I spent with the characters and also that maybe it wasn't really her fault.

Personally I find it weaker and weaker as long as time goes: the premise is awesome and the first chapters as well, but once you reread it you start to notice how few the author had planned his shit except for L always changing sweets and always suspecting Light as a culprit from the very start.
Then you reread the second part and it gets atrocious.

Not really, I have seen brutality pretty well executed in both novels and manga. Doesn´t mean they are masterpieces. I don´t dislike Catcher in the Rye, it´s just not on the same emotional level as the same shit but done in manga format. It needs to well executed, a theme that resonate with the reader, and the feeling of it being genuine and heartfelt. Master of prose can make a great prose, but if the theme does not resonate with the reader, is no use. And this was about reading more. Not just reading required basic literature you had to read during English 101.
>>
>>133722727
Second part is actually pretty well thought. It had less retarded plans than part 1 (Light was retarded in the whole part and his master plan relied on a huge plot shield)

>>I don't think he lost the passion
I disagree.
In his old art, although it was less detail oriented and polished, it felt alive and vibrant. Nowadays not so much.
If you look at how the story petered off, you can tell that he stopped caring about it as much as he used to when he was starting out with the story.

Bundle this with all the hiatuses that he's famous for and it's evident that he's lost that spark.
>>
>>133722650
The resolution to it was bit of a letdown
I mean, it was kinda hard to stomach how the MC got scot free after doing such depraved shit (jacking off on your female classmate's belongings is serious shit)
Instead, he just got a little beating andfaced some ostracization from the class.Heck, he didn't even get suspended or expelled
>>
>>133722873
>it felt alive and vibrant. Nowadays not so much.
That's pretty subjective (everything is, but things like this are hard to discuss). And Miura spends a lot more time drawing and improved the quality of his art. Which also explains the hiatuses.
The only reason to think he lost the passion is the story, but it's just as explainable by bad choices and mistakes. But yeah, I'm waiting for it to get good again.
>>
>>133722778
That's because you give my post your personal meaning... the reasons why the second part is horrible are because Light's new antagonists are way less developed, the art drops in quality except towards the very end and because Light's new interactions towards allies/enemies are significantly reduced.
More importantly, in the second part you can easily see that the author is making shit up every week, and it shows. Imo Death Note's decline doesn't start with L's death, but with the introduction of Misa.
>>

Truly a gem. Scan when?

>>133722876
He spent like months/years trying to improve iirc. I don't think it's so far-fetched to think things would settle down after all that time. Even if it was so unrealistic, the idea is still there : move on and open to others instead of locking yourself in your own pre-established thoughts. That's the most important in the resolution.

From howe the story was set up, I find it hard to believe that they're going to die, and even if they do it would probably be near the end of the story.

Gutts has fundamentally changed as well. He just doesn't have that edge anymore. He feels like some kind of father taking care of his children than some wandering rogue warrior on a mission for vengeance.

Not saying he should have been a blood drinking edgecunt for the rest of the series, but this gutts feels completely different from the one i grew attached to early on in the series.

You entirely missed the point of the phrase "emo teen shit". Proust, Joyce, Hemingway, Goethe, Nabokov, Faulkner, Heller, Kawabata, Marquez, and pretty much every other author of essential literature considered to be the most profound and moving depictions of the human experience deal with issues of depression, angst, identity, and self-image. All of the above authors even use adolescent primary characters in one or more of their books, though that wasn't even my point. Hell, Homer did the teen angst thing right off the bat with Achilles, so it seems like "first world problems" are considered a pretty important cornerstone of the human experience in western literature, believe it or not. But I guess you read all the REAL masterpieces why the rest of us are caught up in immature "muh adolescence feelings" drivel, eh? Faggot.

Lost Children Guts is the best Guts. He does the "revenge vs protect the things you still have" theme a lot better than Final Fantasy Guts.

trying to remember the name of this one manga I thought was really good at the time. Was about a giant elementary school being transported to a weird desert dimension and they would get killed off all over the place by this giant crab centipede thing. And they would be fighting that and each other for food and stuff. Its probably not a masterpiece if I reread it now but it was still pretty fun to read

Its called an character arc,things like traveling with someone make you more civilized, there was a whole period of time about how heavy his burden was with Casca alone in tow. Deep down he's the same, the armor is eating his body away slowly and the fox will probably appear soon,there's lots of foreshadowing about something bad that's going to happen to the company or Guts. I feel like they'll arrive on the island only to see it under siege from the apostles

Seems you have missed the point of coming-of-age stories. You relate, you confirm the feelings you had, the regrets you need to move on from and a good dose of nostalgia. After that you move on to other works. Punpun´s take on it is wallowing in self pity for the entire story and even in the end, he is still a self-hating dickhead when you finish the story. You need to grow out of your emo state, and read more.

Who ever said PunPun was a coming of age story? How many of the "great" works of the western canon do I have to name off where the main character, regardless of age, DOESN'T "just grow up" and overcome their own internal turmoil for you to see how vapid your criticism is in a broader context? PunPun actually doesn't wallow in self-pity and hatred for the majority of the book. On the contrary, we see how he reaches that state, which only really happens as we reach the climax. And as we're shown his story of spiralling depression and self-loathing, we see many other stories of people who dealt with their own demons in utterly different ways, so your argument is pretty fucking hollow, mate.

>You need to grow out of your emo state, and read more.
I don't think you're in a place to be offering anyone advice based on their taste in art.

What is great is subjective, but if you consider protagonist that doesn´t mature to be a great thing, you have no respect from me regarding your past and future opinions.
Even reading it, the emo warning clocks is ringing loud and clear. You need to grow out of that self loath you think is so cool.

Fooly Cooly or Wandering Son are coming of age stories. They focus on a single character as they learn to manage and accept their own need to fit into broader society with their own unique, exposed identity. OPP doesn't fit this mold, and PunPun is just one of a diverse cast of characters with different issues going in different directions. I have nothing against a good coming of age story, but OPP isn't one. A CoAS can take place over a few moments, or it can follow a character over years of development, but the latter happening doesn't automatically make something a CoAS. If you took PunPun out entirely but still told the stories of his uncle, mother, and the other adult characters, it would still be compelling. I think you're latching onto that inappropriate label just to save face and argue something beyond your inability to respond to anything else I said.

>but if you consider protagonist that doesn´t mature to be a great thing, you have no respect from me regarding your past and future opinions.
No, I don't actually need a protagonist to mature in order to consider something a great work of art. Which one of us is fixated on coming of age again?

>You need to grow out of that self loath you think is so cool.
You don't seem to have the faintest clue as to what kind of story I or other people who like it consider OPP to be. Maybe I should use shorter, simpler sentences if this conversation continues.

PunPun can't figure out if he deserves to be loved. Jerking off doesn't exactly solve that problem of his. It is staggering how you can comprehend so little of what you read. Legitimately impressive in a way. It might also be a waste of energy to tell you this, but you don't actually have to identify with a character to get something from a story, so you might mull over whether OPP is REALLY "made for people with no self-respect". I can't find the exact quote, but Nabokov said that identifying with the protagonist is the lowest manner of appreciating literature. Food for thought, dumdum.

Just great mate. One can see where this is going now that you are being so passive aggressive. Last reply from me now.

Get your term correct before you write mate:

Punpun is a Coming of age story, albeit a horrendous one.
Change of POV doesn´t mean Punpun is not the MC anymore.
And you proved my point. You at the age where you admire the state of being in constant misery. Is not something admirable. I hope you don´t go around with a black coat and a hidden blade in the future, and just simply grow out of this phase. *Tip fedora.
