Without exception, eh?

Shigurui thread! Daily reminder that anime > manga, because it didn't drag on and didn't have the retarded happy end.

To be fair they're both equally as schizo. Not bad as Kurozuka anime in that department mind you, but still all over the place.

only thing I remember from this is the "hold the end of your katana's guard with two finger for that extra range" technique also old crazy fuck spitting everywhere.

>anime better than manga
You're delusional OP
>>
>>138818343

I've only read the manga. How does the ending differ? The ending of the manga isn't exactly happy.
>>
does the auther have trauma about nipples ?
>>
>>138819870
No idea. But the author only knows how to draw one kind of female breasts, even when the woman is anorexic.
>>
>>138819870
Read Kakugo no Susume
>>
>>138819857
The manga ends with one-armed guy winning the fight against blind dude and then being together with the daughter of the demented old man.

The anime ends with the beginning of the fight between one-arm and blindy.
>>
>>138820023
Did we read the same manga?
>>
>>138818343
What happy end? You didn't read the manga, did you?
>>
>>138820203
How did you interpret the ending?
>>
>>138820023
Mei killed herself you retard. And in the novel Fujiki died aswell
>>
>>138819870
He seems to have a fetish for unrealistically muscled guys.
>>
>>138820269
>And in the novel Fujiki died aswell
superior ending!
>>
>>138820023
Oh. That sounds kinda worse. The manga builds up the fight between them to have it end in quickly with a single attack. Except that attack was the finale of their years long rivalry. To them (and the reader), it was an epic clash and was the perfection of both of their techniques. However, to the audience it was literally a one armed guy killing a blind guy, and they aren't impressed at all.

Which was a great ending, since the manga largely criticizes the idealized image of Samurai and the way legends are built up around them. Ending with the start of the fight is pretty much the safest and most cookie cutter way that they could have done it.
>>
>>138820316
i disliked that cuck aswell. Irako was a real g
>>
>>138820263
After all the shit they have been through, and Gennosuke deciding to be his own man and live for Mei he is ordered to desecrate Irako's body and become the retainer of Tadanaga. He could have objected, said something, anything, but instead he just quietly obeys hearing his favorite boner inducing word of samurai. Mei realizes that Gennosuke didn't change, never changed and will forever be a tool without his own mind, just like when he was holding her down to have Irako rape her under Kogan's orders. So she offs herself. The end.
>>
>>138820432
Ergo: "The manga ends with one-armed guy winning the fight against blind dude and then being together with the daughter of the demented old man."

You're reading too much into it faggot.
>>
>>138820645
She was shown dead you blind faggot
>>
>>138820687
The manga literally ends with them walking together.
>>
>>138820783
>>138820687
You are both right, but them walking together was a flashback.

Notice anything strange about this? Hint: try to remember which arm the samurai is missing.
>>
>>138821006
Black borders are typically used for flashbacks but in this case I think it's a vision of them being finally together. You know, in death.
>>
>>138819790
But it was. The manga had all this unresolved filler shit towards the end. And the final fight in the manga was kind of underwhelming.
>>
>>138821068
Great. At the last second the manga suddenly gets subtle.
>>
>>138821204
The final duel did end quite fast compared to previous fights. I think the most interesting aspect of the fight is that Fujiki used a dirty trick. He threw the sword toward his opponent's lover so he could get close enough to win through a contest of strength. As the archetypical honorable samurai it was unbecoming of everything he stood for.
>>
>>138818343
If that was a happy end for you then i don't want to think how a bad one looks like.
>>
Fujiki dies later in the tournament. I always read the last panels as them reuniting in afterlife.
>>
>>138818405
>retarded happy end

We didn't read the same manga, m8. IT was everything but happy
>>
>>138821204
The final fight was completely unpredictible and the fact that everything plays itself in one move was just completely mind blowing. It's so high level it looks retarded
>>
>>138820023
Did you read a different manga?
It ended with one arm guy winning, yes. But his waifu killed herself.
So his victory was empty.
>>
>>138821210
Great, you are retarded.

>>138821913
great argument m8

God you are a fucking idiot.
>>
>>138822735
God you suck at making arguments.
>>
>>138822872
What is the point of arguing with some moron who doesn't understand basic shit like what filler is or isn't. Of course the ending of Shigurui would go over your head, the final fight was the best in the series not in terms of how it was choreographed but because it summarised everything shit about Fedual Japan in the space of a few chapters and tied up every loose end in Shigurui perfectly.
>>
>>138822944
And before that fight there was a lot of filler.

Prove me wrong then.

It is one of my favorite shows of all time. The story and the style the story is presented is just excellent. Too bad they will never make anything like this ever again.

I really want to hear how this even managed to confuse you. Did you think "she slit her throat but the last pages show her alive so I guess she got better, and also Gennosuke grew his arm back"?

Blade of the Immortal and LWC were better samurai manga.

BotI is probably on the same level.

LW&C is the best samurai series ever.

S2 when.
