Daily dose time, today's is an extra large dose of probably the funniest KKOW arc: Mitsuhashi vs. Imai.
Yeah but the thread died and if I'm gonna do the whole arc I wanna include this.
Probably some jap humor thing.
And that's all for today, thanks for reading.
It's comedy, and it's funny, you get used to how crazy Mitsuhashi is but this explanations put into perspective and reminds you like shit Mitsuhashi really is on another level, I mean who would do that in real life?
Hey I gotta ask in regards to Rokudenashi Blues, for people that have read KKOW, Be-Bop High or Cromartie High? Would you consider Rokudenashi Blues to be up there with those as well? Is it undoubtedly one of the best ones or not as good as the ones mentioned?
I'm sure it'll be done at least within our lifetimes.
Anybody else has read some of those that cares to give some input? Or to put the question in another way for anyone that has read their fair share of delinquent manga.
Which do you OBJECTIVELY (more or less) consider to be the very best, the ones at the top?
Because it's impossible to be completely objective so in reality just about every answer is gonna be an opinion, that's why I said More or Less, but despite that I'm asking people to try and be as objective as they can.
Chartfag is probably the person on here who has read the most delinquent manga which is available in english and he puts KKOW at the top and maybe BBH after it. I can't remember why though, I know he doesn't like over powered MCs who do too many impossible things which is why he doesn't like Maeda Taison in Rokudenashi or Bouya in Crows.
I personally like Rokudenashi Blues the most out of anything I have read delinquent wise. It has the best art of any delinquent manga, and pretty much of most manga in general. I like the humour in it but it's obviously never going to be as good as something which is a dedicated gag manga like KKOW is. I find myself liking the characters and their interactions more in RokuBlues than anything else. At the end of the day, the thing i like the most about delinquent manga is that they are stories about strong friendships, I that is developed very nicely in RokuBlues, moreso than the others.
For what it's worth from an 'objective' viewpoint, I think Rokudenashi Blues is the best selling delinquent manga and it used to be outrageously highly rated in WSJ (shit outranked Dragonball and Saint Seiya at times).
I'm chartfag thought, that's why I'm asking, I figured I was gonna do it sooner or later because I'm not sure if people would agree with my RokuBlues placement, but seems like not many have even read it in the first place. I don't dislike OP MCs thought, I actually really like them. Only think that I really dislike are either moralfag gary stu's and really over the top stuff that takes itself seriously. Maeda and Bouya are pretty cool MCs no doubt.
Like imagine if Mitsuhashi didn't exist and the series was about Itou alone, it would get pretty tiring wouldn't it? But anyways, thanks for the input, I don't know why I was hesitating so much anyways, RokuBlues should be at the top, maybe because it's been a while since I read it.
Also, if ya'll ever wondered how Maeda would loook without his sick pompadour, see pic related.
Relly, only that? That's how little you think of Mitsuhashi? Itou isn't even funny, and if he's its mostly because he's embarrassing and Mitsuhashi laughs at him or something like that. Well I guess Sagawa would become a main part of the cast and Riko wouldn't even be in Itou's school.
I never implied that you said nothing would be lost if Mitsuhashi wasn't around bullying people. But you said the ONLY reason it would get boring is because Itou gets taken advantage of way too easily. Really, that'd be the only reason?
That Volume 18 cover posted yesterday got me really exited to watch the MC grow, can't wait to read this thing.
I feel the same way... On a side note... C11V2 was just uploaded. I forgot to add the cover pages and content page. Thank you to the new editor that showed up. I appreciate it.
Well after 55 chapters I think it's more than safe to take this off the list since it's not that big on the delinquency after the first few chapters, consdering it has 42 voumes and on-going that is. It's still pretty good if anyone likes Slam Dunk you might like this, only shit about it is the below average scans, the improve after some chapters but the cleaning quality is still pretty bad.
But I'm still kinda hesitating because now I wonder if Rookies and Angel Voice are even a delinquent manga, because they have a shitload of chapters, especially Angel Voice.
Always glad to see other delinquent fans around, it's such a great genre of manga.
What's the point of a biker gang? Why can't they just ride normally?
Do they do any profitable illegal things? It seems like they're risking jail time for absolutely nothing.
In a way they do like the idea of being a gang because is a youth's mentality, it makes them cool and tough, gives them a thrill as well but a big part of why they're a gang is due to outside forces. Starting with this >>133839399, the fact alone that they ride motorcycles already makes them illegal due to age so they gotta escape the police, the othe thing is that even if they decide to "not be a gang" and be good kids, there are other gangs out there already and they would let them ride in peace in their streets so there would be altercation want it or not, escalating things, becoming a gang issue want it or not.
Yeah, it's really similar to Hana no Asukagumi! But it's not by the same author so I wonder if it was a common thing for shoujos at the time. The Hot Road art is still better I think.
Yeah characters are hard to tell apart but not because of the art style alone but because they're not introduced very well. Think I only got who the MC was and her name by like chapter 3.
And that's all for today, thanks for reading.
Gonna start reading this, hope it hooks me. The anime wasn't bad but I have memories of it being tedious at times.
>RokuBlues should be at the top
It really does mate. Despite any shortcomings it might have, it really is one of the GOATs of manga, just generally speaking.
Who cares about the episodes, I want the manga! Shit's all translated already. Just needs cleaning and TS, I don't know why they even bother translating SFX, the manga doesn't even have much redrawing.
Someone should make one of these for delinquent manga.
Is this by the old TS or the new one? The speech bubbles seem too full, in some cases its good to reduce the text size by 1 pt. to leave more white space in the speech bubbles, makes it easier on the easy and to read.
I was asking if that page was from the new editor or not, I had no way of knowing because I haven't read it so I don't know how the Typesetting of the old editor even is and "they have a new editor" doesn't answer it.
I wasn't expecting the art to be so good, some faces look fucked up here and there, really weird, but everything else is fantastic.
