SUPER GLAD to see this getting a re-release- I bought the digital version from Amazon and thought the quality was shit, and then I saw that the physical book has been out of print for close to a decade now and is going to run you like $30 if you want it.
Yeah just do all of those. Definitely do Nausicaä, Lone Wolf, and Blade. GitS is probably the shortest. The Alita manga starts to get pretty shounen though in the 2nd series — Last Order.So I've never read manga before and have the Berserk Deluxe Vol. 1 arriving whenever Amazon ships the pre-order as my very first taste.
But I have also had a few sets on my wishlist for awhile now and am sort of ready to pull the trigger on at least one.
Any recommendations on which is best to dive in first for a newcomer? I am familiar with the anime and popularity for all three(90's stuff and I really loved GitS: SAC), but curious as to thoughts on the manga side for each.
(Not super interested in Shounen stuff personally. But should also mention that Nausicaa, Lone Wolf + Cub, and Blade of the Immortal are also in consideration as I do research on beloved recommendations and see those pop-up often.) Thanks for any insight.
If there is a God, Jump will can it. I cannot believe something so vile's still running.
Damn, what did it do?
It is and he recently reached that goal only to realize touching boobs without the context of a relationship isn't really as exciting as he would have thought
That, and his manipulative superior playing into his desires for the organization's gains.
I reviewed the first volume and "How cute..." was largely retained aside from some variances. Did they drop that, or is there something else you're referring to?
Well reading the most recently released volume:
The target demography of Shonen Jump and their weekly rivals like magazine, sunday and champion is between 11-16 but the majority of the readers of shonen jump for quite some time are in that order:last saiyuki
this... actually looks kinda promising?
artstyle seems super 90s though, and the main characters are in grade school? aren't jump's main readers like middle school?
guessing the protagonist and his dad are descendants of sun wu kong (the dad even used the staff) and koharu is a descendant of tang san zang
Nice to see another person enjoying WNL <3The Last Saiyuki seems pretty promising. I hope they don't just forget that the dad is a pretty terrible dad, though. I feel like that's something that would happen.
I've only started reading ACT-AGE since a bit before Jump became free, so I'm not super familiar with the characters. That said, this new Friendship is Magic "make some friends!" arc seems pretty fun.
Neolation is eh. But from the sound of things, I'm glad I dropped Chainsawman instead of this.
So I see I started Kimetsu no Yaiba right in the middle of its final arc. It's a shame, it's been pretty cool from what I read, but also, it's neat that they're sticking to making these guys the final bosses.
Jujutsu Kaisen has been pretty cool (also started recently). I love when villains have nature powers.
Higuma has been alright, but I think it has a lot of potential.
We Never Learn has been fun (also started recently). I guess I just didn't realize I wanted this kind of series.
I don't see how it's vile? What is it doing that it's so bad? Even the silly premise of the boobs still requires consent of the woman involved and the gore, well, that's not different than other manga out there.If there is a God, Jump will can it. I cannot believe something so vile's still running.
Thankfully, it's ranking at the bottom with its fellow debuts (neolation and Higuma), so hopefully it'll be out soon. Regardless, I'm surprised nothing was booted following the two new series.
Ehhh, I know it's a exaggeration and all but it was just 2 pages, then one page without nothing and then one more page and it ended there.
I feel like the general implication is that she's in her early twenties. She's not older than twenty-five as if memory serves isn't her name a christmas cake pun or something
