>world building

I'm not sure this word means what you think it means. Can you describe this world in detail, its various races, factions, ethnicities, religions, cultures, superstitions, geography, fauna, etc? No, you can't. Because ToG is "everyone lives in a giant tower and the whole point is to climb floors and get stronger."

The world is not built upon, at all. We know nothing of the world.

What you MEANT TO SAY (unless you're retarded) is that the character development is top-notch, which I would agree with, though I'd say the progression is slow and there are too many pointless characters.

What do you fags think of the latest chapter?

Hell train arc my top workshop battle for me soon.
>>
>>135073539
It's fucking hype. Anna's doll got absolutely destroyed quicker than I thought. What separates soul shit like Sachi's from regular shinsoo shit? It's like the same thing and Sachi went through hundreds of years for his thorn thing. Anna probably has something in store since there's no way she got this far just like that.

The mention of Vicente's fighting style was interesting too. Defense which means when combined into White, would have the superiority of Hoaqin and Vicente together.

Also, the soul jar can melt stuff but it can't melt the lighthouses. That's was something interesting to note. I was under the assumption that lighthouses used shinsoo to create its shield.

It's a shame that Koon antics are sidelined a bit this arc. We don't know how well Koon would fair against Hoaqin.

Hell Train was my least favorite part so far, but the pacing has picked back up again, and this stuff with White is great.

Though having Yuri on the sidelines is kind of silly, though I understand it from a plot standpoint.

Wish Hwa Ryun did more though, she's always been Best Girl in my book. I hate Emily for making her useless the most, other than being a super convenient tool for the villains to pull shit out of their asses.
>>
I read the korean, so reading just fine. But bro only read eng and dropped it since the drop of qualities between naver line and the company was too much he said. Anyone ?
>>
>>135076893
Hwa Ryun is the super convenient tool for the protagonists too. Lets the author guide the story where he wants it to go.

>Hwa Ryun is the super convenient tool for the protagonists too
True, I just found it odd how she was an extremely crucial part of the previous arcs while being largely in the background, yet is unable to do much now that she is an active member of the party. I understand the plot reasons, just saying the sudden shift was a bit jarring.

>>135077066
>>135077332
The LINE translations have improved with the most recent chapters (I wish they would fix their earlier translations, I can't stand reading them), but they still mess up quite often.

Like that one chapter where they literally removed whole pages so people were confused as hell about the rules for the dollar system in the current game. They put them in later, but they could have at least delayed it, or put up a disclaimer.

No. It's just a WHM ability or else why would it be glowing? SIU tried to make it clear that it was the ability of the WHM.

>>135072788
I don't think ToG has great world building, particularly because, if I remember right, most of the world is unknown/undiscovered and they don't actually bother explaining THAT much. Not bad because it retains a sense of mystery.

But, well, I basically dropped this during that arc where there was a weird kid with hand powers, and metal mask was starting shit, and Baam's thorn or whatever woke up. The pacing was losing me, and there were too many characters I didn't really care for/characters I did care for weren't really focused on. Not sure how I feel about the series, now.
>>
>>135077346
Dungeon Meshi has superb world building, it's wondrously well thought out.
>>
>>135078051
>>135078489
I'm pretty sure one of the siblings is in the sword, and his special ability is possession or something like that. I don't think it is a trait of the actual weapon.

>>135078517
Most of the world building is in supplementary material, this arc is kind of unique since it is actually delving into one of the mysteries brought up in the background information.

We've known about the Slayer White for a long time, but the main story is actually expanding on that story which is kind of neat.
>>
>>135078738
If it's in supplementary material, I don't think you can say it has good world building, but maybe that's just my opinion.

Good world building should be incorporated into the story, or something.

Dunno, I'm actually not one that tends to be concerned with fascinating settings.
>>
>>135078804
World building can go either way, Fallout series is known for an excellent post-apocalyptic world which is portrayed to the player through direct interaction for the most part. You know what is in the world because you heard about it from characters you've talked to, or you experienced it for yourself.

On the other hand you have stuff like Demon Souls or Dark Souls where the world building is found mostly through things like item descriptions, and the like. The actual story doesn't give you much, but with the supplementary material that you search out for yourself, you find that the world is actually really in depth if vague at times.

TOG is kind of the same, but not really. The thing is that a lot of TOG's world related stories took place prior to Baam's story. The thing with Zahard entering the Tower, and eventually becoming the ruler, Urek entering the Tower in search of Phantominium, and all the stuff with FUG are all related to Baam's story but not the focus of it. Hence why TOG is in a bit of a weird position, that said the world is interesting enough for me just from the stuff the main story gives. You don't need all the background info, but it helps give a wider understanding of events.
>>
>>135078738
Possession? That sounds reasonable considering how Anna has powers from sorcery too.
>>
>>135079118
Does Demon Souls or Dark Souls really have a good world within the stories? Like how vague is it?

So /a/ who do you think is the girl with the best compatibility/best suited to hook up with Baam?

Personally I'd say Hwa Ryun, I just think she's supposed to be the opposite of Rachel in the story. Plus SIU has been pushing the "these two trust each other to an absurd degree" thing for a while now.

yes.I actually like the hell train arc a lot so far.

>>135085302

Good enough, I suppose. You should at least give a speed read and skim until you find something interesting.

Still the same formula:
>FUG villain/Rachel in the way so we have conflict
>Beat Villain up, new cast is added to the roster, and the roster is already fuckhuge since SIU won't kill anyone (he did but it was only a supporting character new to the arc)
>Filler episodes in between floors with Team Sweet and Sour/Baam's original team(the one with Anak and Androssi)

>FUG villain/Rachel in the way so we have conflict (supposedly princess arc after hell train)
>Etc, Etc cycle repeats

I might actually do that too, to see if there are any hints or foreshadowing on the story.

But the art is, you know how the early art looks like, it's going to be a bit of a pain,

Seems really similar to most battle manga.

I feel if you can't get characters with unique and interesting abilities, and have them work in a battle, it isn't a good battle manga. JJBA is really good at this since Part 4. Gash Bell and Shaman King as well.
