Manga / Anime Discussion


Recommended Posts

@H0ney, I love Masumi and Maya’s romance too. It really is the best I have read including Mr. Purple Rose persona. :heart2beat: It was the only manga that made me want to learn Japanese. I bought books to self study and then crashed and burned at Kanji and their many readings. :lol: The hiragana and katakana were easy peasy. In any case, at least a wonderful Italian fan created a website with volume summaries as a resource for English readers because the manga is officially published in Italy.

@Sleepy Owl, I watch Fire Force and actually enjoyed it after a second attempt. I also watched Dr. Stone which was quite interesting especially the science part. 
 

@mirmz, I hear you. ^_^ I find the statistics on Myanimelist interesting with the rank of favorite characters among members there:

 

1. Lelouch  (Code Geass) - 128.5k

2. L Lawlett (Death Note) - 107.0k
3. Luffy (One Piece) - 95.0k

4. Levi (Attack on Titans) - 94.0k

5. Light (Death Note) - 81.7k

 

@Sleepy Owl, Edward Elric is #6 with 77.4k fans. 

 

My friend told me that Dr. Stone's manga is still ongoing and a lot more is left in the story. So it will be one of those really long anime, and with the second season still on hold, I think I will not try it for now. Although I watched some clips and they were quite good and the whole idea of anime is interesting. I might give its manga a try though.

 

Among the most favorite ones, I think Lelouch does deserve it. I liked this dude, he was a calculating character, was mostly 2-3 steps ahead of everyone, and I believe they finally gave a really good closure to his character with the latest Code Geass movie. I know it remained a mystery for many years whether he was alive or not after the end of anime, and finally after so many years it was answered. 

 

I am with "L" too. I don't know whether you know it or not, but this guy was supposed to finally catch Light in the end of Death Note, but the writers thought it would be too predictable, so they killed him, and well I know many who dropped the anime because of it. I also found the initial few episodes after his death quite boring, since the transition had to happen and the new characters had to be introduced. 

 

About Levi too, he has got a very solid fan base in Attack On Titan fans. I know they are one of the biggest reasons that the author didn't really kill him till now, even after a very big deadly blow, where many were left wondering whether he was dead or not, he turned out to be alive. In the list above, he is the only one who is not really the ML of the anime. He is a side character, and is more famous than the main trio of the anime itself. 

 

Edward Elric is good and likeable character too, but I won't be complaining him not being in the top 5. Would replace him with Light, but I know we've got a lot of people who loved "Kira". I am sure there must have been two groups divided when the anime was airing or the manga coming. One who be supporting him and the others against him, just like the same in anime. But Edward Elric was extremely good guy here. For me he could be among the top 5 adorable characters here.

@Sleepy Owl, I hate Light Yagami. I hate him a lot. He’s one of my most hated anime characters. I forced myself to finish the Death Note anime but I will never watch it again. Lots of people like L because he was eccentric and well, interesting. I didn’t know he wasn’t supposed to die but it effectively turned me off the story and it’s pretty forgettable to me now especially since I watched it a long time ago. 
 

I recently fell for the anime “That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime”. I put off watching this anime for months because I found a slime unappealing as a main character. However, I watched the anime recently and I went straight to the manga afterwards. I like the world building and the main character is the type of personality I enjoy. I find absolutely nothing annoying about him. Maybe because he retained his maturity from his previous life where he was a 37 year old Japanese team leader before he was stabbed to death.

 

I didn’t know there was a Code Geass movie. Actually I watched that anime a long time ago so I can’t remember the story much. Heh. Maybe I’ll rewatch it since it’s on one of my streaming channels.

 

@mirmz, hmmm, it depends on what you like though. Those characters in Say I Love You were a bit too much for me. :sweatingbullets: When I was in high school we didn’t act like they did. Anyway, one that @pompyavi didn’t mention is Blue Spring Ride. There’s also:


Wolf Girl and Black Prince

Blue Spring Ride (added it here too)

My Love Story

Tonikawa

Golden Time (didn’t watch the whole thing)


Our Love Has Always Been 10 centimeters apart (Series)

The Moment You Fall In Love (Movie for a couple in the above series)

I’ve Always Liked You (Movie for another couple in the above series)

 

Kaguya-sama love is war

The World is Still Beautiful

Glass Mask

Hanasakeru Seishounen

You mean Ao Haru Ride, they didn't adapt the full manga, so was dissatisfied 

True but that’s always the case with anime that serves as an advertisement for the manga/novel except for the major anime shows like Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, etc.. Kimi Ni Todoke two seasons were not the full manga. However, I see your point about Ao Haru Ride because unlike Kimi Ni Todoke, the couple didn’t get a firm resolution in the anime. I guess that couldn’t be helped because they only got together at the end of the manga anyway. :(

True, I was not happy how they ended the anime. Naruto is the only anime I watched which is more than 26 episodes. Recently, I watched Your Lie in April, it was very deep but as you previously said instead of having the characters at 14, they could have made that at 17 or 18. But nevertheless that was a very good anime. I also watched Kono Oto Tomare, even in that one the protagonists did not end up together but it was finished at a good point and the manga is still ongoing.

I mainly enjoyed Kono Oto Tomare for the music competition. I really enjoy their win in the season season. Their piece was beautiful.

Hey there Chingu, sorry I totally missed out on the comments of this thread. 

 

Light Yagami was not really a likeable character for me too. I had to force myself to finish the anime too, and so was the case with many friends of mine too. We all struggled from the point when they killed L. The story itself went off-track for some episodes after it. The only reason they decided to kill L was because it would be too predictable if L would catch Light Yagami. 

 

I will add "That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime" to my watchlist. The plot seems interesting. 

 

As for Code Geass, the ML was shown to be killed in the end of the anime, but then they showed his companion CC talking to someone on being carried on a cart while handling the horses. They didn't show it was, but let to speculations that the ML could have faked his death there. For years, I think more than 10 years there was no answer, the showrunners had refused to answer it or had confirmed his death. Plus this is not based on Manga as far as I know, so viewers were left with theories to make and believe. 

 

Years later they decided to make sequel of it, where they continued the story and concluded it properly. I would suggest you to go for it. If you don't want to watch anime, there are movies where they compressed the anime into 2-3 movies I guess.

I liked Kunta Man when I was a kid. The cartoonist clearly had fun while making this anime (and seems to have not thought hard about it). Kunta Man is a robot who can fly, but not higher than 30 cm. This robot is very flawed.

I just watched "The Promised Neverland" live action movie. Season 2 of the anime is coming soon. :D

Interesting. I didn’t think the story would continue in the anime. I didn’t finish season 1 yet but I did see the ending episode.
