Technically this is the moment where shit got unreal
Highest point in the manga. It was never the same after this.
Not exactly "got real", but I was kinda expecting it would. I was so damn excited for the last arc. However, thought it wasn't bad, it was kinda disappointing. The setup at the beginning was great, but character development forced rationality into the plan and ruined the payoff.
I still wish Deadman Wonderland didn't get the shitty treatment it got with the anime.
Even if it had continued, the best backstory wouldn't have gotten told cause for some reason One Piece can have flaming trannies but a fucking series about blood powers and murder can't.
I was not ready for this
and I'm so glad it was an improvement
Toriko wasn't fenomenal but sure as hell was the best when it came to moments like that.
the arima rematch alone makes it worth it
>That time Kaneki thought he could 1 v 1 Arima and got his ass beat
>Starts freaking out and crying because he thought he was gonna die
>Arima took a liking to him and decided to brainwash him and make him a CCG agent
I just wanted a cute manga about Helck doing cute things.
>latest chapters are some of the best in :re because it's an actual healing with character development instead of a shitty clusterfuck action Ishida seems to enjoy so much in last years
>character says they're going to do something absolutely ridiculous
>think they're actually going to do it
>haha just kidding I was just lonely
Can't we have some characters with fucking resolve for once? It's fiction so if you want to destroy the earth, just fucking do it. The worst that will happen is normalfags give it bad reviews.
>Giant ghost MILF rapes you
>People try to take you away from her
>She goes crazy
>10-12 years later you end up meeting her again.
Got admit it was kind of hot watching a shota get sexually molested by a giant MILF woman, and yes I know I'm a degenerate.
>So this is the power of spiral energy.....not bad
Seriously why do his eyes look like that? Also I couldn't help but feel bad for him.
It wasn't a complaint specifically about the manga anyway, it was about stories in general. Yeah, there was a decent amount of foreshadowing that their determination was wavering, but still. It's more depressing to me to read stories where characters are weak and give up, than to read about the world getting destroyed. If you're going to do something, do it, or don't start at all. If you let every little doubt sway your decisions you'll never get anything done.
>Jobin going even deeper as the chapters go on
>the rabbit hole continues in two days
shit nigga if this ain't his worst kill, jobin is going to suffer hard
It wasn't about her having doubts and wavering on destroying the earth. It was about her getting her wish granted. She only wanted to destroy the world in the first place so she can "have" it before she dies of sickness.
Along the way she met people who became important to her, "granting" her wish to have the earth.
She wasn't weak willed or anything. She would have still destroyed the world if she didn't learn anything, or didn't connect with the rest of the cast.
The most accurately-named manga ever.
Yeah, I know, but much of her reasoning was added late in the story. I understand why she didn't, that's not the issue. I just would have preferred a different ending. And in general too many villains who are on the brink of destroying the world or completing whatever their objective is give up at the eleventh hour. That's not inspiring, it's depressing. Why do they have to suddenly become weak and emotionally vulnerable just for the sake of the plot? It's an instant immersion breaker and it's depressing. Only Lelouch ever succeeded, he's the closest anything has ever come to the worlds opponent winning.
Pour a glass of seasame oil for our fallen desu desu
The realest it ever got in DBZ, when the true greatest threat was realized and Vegeta knew he was fucked.
Part of me wishes that Last Order ended right fucking there.
malevolent reminder that I will never scanlate part one
you can't make me, there's nothing you can do about it
if you want to see it scanlated, harass the absolute fuck out of Illuminati Manga about it; the project formally belongs to them
surprisingly better than most action mangas and with more compelling and believable story than some romance mangas. I'm gonna be heretic and say that Bartender is actually better than Naruto and Yakitake Japan surpasses Bleach by class.
I liked a lot of the shitty tournament arc. The writer mostly used it as a way to do exposition about the setting and make up crazy shit featuring high-end technology, anyway. Vilma's two volumes of backstory were easily classic GUNNM quality.
What I disliked was Alita turning into a bad main character I stopped caring about, that nothing in the universe can stand up to anymore. Building up Toji just to fuck him over with black hole ressurecition bullshit cheat was the cherry on the top.
They offered to scanlate it if they were given a redrawer, publicly; then refused all contact with me when I handed them a redrawer, a translator and a few already-completed redraws. By *my* decree, and by their own initial admission of willingness, the responsibility for the lack of a scanlation belongs to them.
Last time I checked, they're now staying at some college with some people. I remember that it was going up to a point where there's a possibility that they're gonna be attacked by a rival group.
Call Naruto shit all you want but this was a 10/10 moment.
When searching I found the Chaika edit which was great too.
The most shit got real moment in Elfen Lied
A 77 chapter wait fucking paid off in full.
Well it's more of a philosophical take on "shit got real" but I still think it counts.
It's a power granted to those who come back to life called answer talker. It consists in the ability to know any answer when you formulate a cuestion in your brain. Do you understand or you want an example?
Man, the final was so fucked up i wasn't expecting it at all
When the ayy super soldier asked for Kurono and the entire planet was asking itself "ku ro no?" then they start asking for him. That was actually pretty cool and I felt really sorry for Kurono then. Humanity is shit and now he had to protect them
That's cool, but here's is where shit got real real
No he becomes progressively handsomer because the artists improved and also dropped the gag and major comedy aspects of the series, including helcks ridiculous face for an MC.
arba's face 10/10
late to the party I know but feel like I gotta mention what I just read this was amazing I doubted the foreshadowing on fear I thought takezo was gonna win but he got bitched and I realized he was actually afraid of dying
plus baldy's murder face is amazing
Why didn't Arima just betray and pledge for the one eyed king? that would've have been even better. Was he afraid of losing to somebody else eventually which would diminish Kaneki's feat of defeating him?
One thing I didn't understand about Teresa's death in Claymore is that she was so ridiculously strong that she should have been able to beat Priscilla to death with her arm stubs.
I knew Kurono was going to fight the alien with his plot armor on so there was no possible outcome where he loses, he didn't even get badly hurt, the alien just kicked him once and Kurono killed him with his bullet attack.
She was caught off-guard and she had actually gotten complacent, especially during her time with Claire, so she didn't just go for the kill like she normally would have.
At the end, she just shits on Priscilla when she finally got her shit together.
I read Pluto an don't remember anything like this.
It is indeed pretty edgy but I'm really liking it.
It may have been a bad manga, but this moment was perfect. Created a nice shit-show on 4chan as well
This would have been even more amazing had they not just undid it all at the end of the arc.
Nah nobody would get to really appreciate Houshin Engi like that. It requires a small build up and powering through the first few chapters to really see its goodness.
The story is about growing up. Wanting to destroy the earth for childish reasons is something the main character matures out of, and the final arc is about imparting that maturity onto Sami.
Because as long as Arima lives, he remains the unreachable symbol of ghoul oppression, that's why he was the One Eyed King after beating Eto. OEK is just a title given to who the world sees as being the strongest above all else.
Arima had to die so that the hopes of ghouls could actually pass over to Kaneki. If the CCG's White Reaper suddenly switched over to Kaneki's side, people would think that all kinds of fuckery is going on, doubt would seed itself in the masses, etc. If Kaneki kills Arima in a 1v1, everyone will acknowledge him as the strongest and a messiah-like figure for the ghouls to rally under.
this was the only awesome part after that
Towards the end, it's just edge. Lot's of people die for the sole sake of building pointless drama.
Although, I'm a sucker for mushy stuff so I read a lot of Romances. The confession and kiss scene on ch 66 was so God damn great. and made suffering through the ending that much more worth it.
The biggest problem I had with it was something consistent. The MC was introduced as an amazing swordsman, then never fucking touches a sword again once he gets Incursio.
>that entire fucking thread of "what the fuck did I just watch, I only came here for the lesbians"
I watched SamFlam before this happened and decided to just work on my backlog since no shows were good enough to hold my interest that season.
I then came back to /a/ and it turned out to be the wild ride of the century.
J U S T
It hurt seeing him like this. It was easily the most heart breaking moment in the manga.
Fucking muria. I knew griffith was fucked coming into that but it was just so much worse. The entire story just come crumbling down along with everyone hopes and dreams.
Truly griffith did nothing wrong
If you didn't get into Naruto as one of your first gateway anime, there is no reason to get into it. Unless maybe if you're obsessed with online anime discussion and really want to interact with the Naruto crowd for some reason.
>he was supposed to get a genuine, non-joke power-up by contracting with multiple demons at once
>the Jump axe falls
>powerup totally skipped, occurs off-screen and loses off-screen
>every cool character off-screened by last boss
I'm curious. I watched some of the anime as a teen. Somehow I had some taste then and dropped it after the 50th believe it. But the world interested me, even browsing the wiki was more interesting than the anime
What happens to the Band of Hawk was sad, but because this was what had happened to Griffith, I couldn't blame him. He had to endure this for a year. The one and only thing he cared about, other than Guts, was now out of his reach. He was driven into a corner. He had no choice but to do what he did.
I'm not going to say he did nothing wrong, but that anyone would do the same in his situation.
It's definitely best to wiki-surf if you're interested in Naruto. Believe me, in some ways the wiki explores the world better than the series proper ever does. Which is a shame because the setting could have actually been interesting, but I guess that applies to everything in the series; "this could have been interesting". Kishimoto a hack.
Well the setting is genuinely fantastic but it means nothing because of the implementation. I can see why judging by wiki entries it looks cooler than it really is.
Another thread falls to rubberry memes.
The games did a good job convincing me to try it. The characters, especially when they were young, had fun designs and powers. It looked fun. It wasn't, when I did get around reading it.
A race called Eldians basically has titan blood in their veins, every character in the walled nation is an Eldian (except the asians), so yeah in a way everybody is titans. The picture is from a flashback, and showing us which background characters became which titans in the early parts of the manga, after the mainland empire injected them with the serum and left them on the island the series is mainly set on.
The rest of the world is embroiled in fighting ww1 but the empire that left them there is losing and they want the power the wall people have to awaken the colossals that sleep inside the walls.
We just had a 4 year time skip, all the titans on the island are dead and it seems like we're gearing up to invade the mainland, as the empire is subjugating the Eldians on the mainland and is the reason the rest were exiled onto the island. Last few chapters have just been showing us the empire's war with the eastern nations, and how technology is starting to match the military power of weaponized Titans.
So yeah, it looks like we'll be seeing a lot of the mainland and the factions on it.
When a shitty comedy manga became a halfway decent shounen manga before it imploded unceremoniously.
Way too many people watched this without having seen the original Underwater Ray Romano.
malnutrition, severe muscle atrophy, ripped out tongue, possibly flayed face, possibly one eye ripped out as well, partially flayed body, partially cut off muscles.
the torturer made a truly good job if Griffith survived all this shit
I will never forget
