Why does nobody ever talk about Kinnikuman?
>>
It's fucking gay.
>>
It's mostly not in English?

So is most Shounen

BIG BAD BOYS FROM OUTER SPACE

It makes OPM look like fucking Shakespeare
>>
>>134935254
I love the series, I remember reading it on Toriyama World way back when, but it's stupid as all hell and one of the originators of numerous horrible shonen tropes. I still want another game to come over, though.
>>
Because it's a relic of the past, most /a/nons here can't stand watching ancient anime in 4:3 tat is not something if it's not somethig like Evangelion and are only interested in discussing the current session anime.
>>
>>134935254
Because it's good and ended almost 30 years ago, and the new one isn't translated, what's there to discuss?
>>
because it's the trendsetter in addition to being a shounen on crack

>ten gorillion different tournament arcs
>every enemy becomes ally
>power of friendship x 100
>impossible comebacks
>annoying sidekick
>at some point it's not even about wrestling

>>134935254
>10yo me
>local TV aired Kinnikuman on Saturday evening
>"oh, cartoon!"
>that Chinese guy killed his opponent by making him a literal noodles
>remember about it a few years later
>gave me retrospective trauma
>>
>>134939352
Kinnikuman had some brutal deaths coming out of nowhere.
>>
>>134939408
Even though the me now is able to enjoy graphic violence, I still can't cope with Kinnikuman because of that. It made me think about death for the very first time.

Ironically, I think the censored version just made it worse. Getting ripped in half is awful but getting eaten is even more of an indignity.
>>
>>134939829
It's much less the indignity of being eaten and more the indignity of being rolled up into noodles
>>
>>134935254
because nobody like ultraman
>>
>>134935254
gayer than jojo

>>134937370
ULTIMATE MUSCLE
>>
>>134939260
Just like pro wrestling
>>
>>134939260
>>at some point it's not even about wrestling

In all fairness, the early arcs of Kinnikuman weren't about wrestling either. They were about Kinnikuman being a superhero literally nobody liked.
>>
>>134939646
>>134939685
>Ramen man is retconned into honorable man of justice after this

This manga had worse retcon than anything Marvel or DC could fathom
>>
>>134941498
Losing to Kinnikuman has one hell of a psychological effect that causes everyone to question their life choices up to that point.
>>
>>134941498
Ironically, that evil Ramenman was the one who begged Suguru to give everything he had against Robin, leading to an untrained, shit-skilled Suguru actually matching Robin (for a time).
>>
I enjoyed nisei and some of the later parts of the original. It's too homo to be relevant in modern times. With no waifus there's no reason to follow a series.

Someone please start WW3 already.

The english OP has that corny charm, but the original is simply great.
