why is the one punch man manga the slowest, most self-indulgent fucking thing ever

I mean, there's existing source material that is far beyond it. Like, the way the original webcomic is paced and written was actually quite rough and it could stand to be smoothed over with some extra material, but adding this tournament arc that has been going on for a full year and has zero relevance to the events that are about to happen and a grand total of no characters who will probably ever appear again after it's over isn't the way to do that. I literally put the manga down shortly after catching up with it back when the anime was still airing and it has gone nowhere. Honestly, it's amazing how hard this thing is dropping the ball.

anyway watched up to episode 3 on all the stuff I'm watching for anime club. also now watching tanya the evil on my own. kiznaiver is kind of a cute show so far but from everything I've ever heard of it, it's gonna start getting messy soon. regardless, it's probably the most interesting of those five anime club shows thus far, the rest of which are varying degrees of competent and okay-ish.

basically the tournament is filler for the anime that sets up for some stuff the new version is also throwing in (like the big monster cell monster king dude)

but mostly Murata's schedule and chapter lengths are just all over the **** place

like, that's why I didn't really slag on the monster association attack -- for as boring as it is, it at least establishes a better justification for the protracted attack on their base (as opposed to the webcomic basically just going "solid snake! monsters live in Z-Town! go investigate!") and the new characters and details they're adding to the Monster Association (all of which is a bad idea, by the way -- anything that distracts the narrative from Garou is weakening the story, simple as that). But like, the tournament isn't really a vector for any of that, it's not actually progressing anything. I think the only payout from all this is testing the monster cells in this latest chapter, which they probably could have done without 6 chapters of tedious build-up.

Like, I agree, but we both have realized that half of everything Murata does at this point is a vehicle for his crazy-ass character designs.

i know way too many people in real life who are disproportionately down on yuri on ice for being a megapopular yaoi series far more popular than their favorite yuri anime and it bothers the living hell out of me



i mean, can you guess the only show that is about two men in love with each other in this list? i think yuri on ice might actually be the first anime of its kind that doesn't suck or pull back at the last minute and say "no, all the guys are actually straight, they're just bros." the alternative is one of either (or some combination thereof) an adaptation of some sickfuck Nitro+ rape fantasy BL game like Togainu no Chi or some really milquetoast, extremely low quality budget tv show that's mostly just fetishizing it. i'm not even enjoying the show all that much, but I wish these guys would friggin' cool it, considering that I have to remind one guy about all this like, every week or so.

I don't know what my starter anime would be, but it wasn't Death Note. Didn't watch that until I was like a sophomore in college, I think. Maybe a freshman.

i have no idea what mine was. i think i actually credit video games for getting me into weeb stuff, specifically the PS2 generation of jrpgs that fully converged with what was becoming the "modern anime" in terms of influences and characteristics. i think the .hack// games of all things drove me to integrate myself into the larger anime fandom more than actual anime did.

whatever the closest thing to my "starter anime" is, it sure as hell isn't death note lol. haven't seen a single episode of that to date.

I'm actually fairly sure I got started with tapes of Tenchi Muyo and Rurouni Kenshin.

And of course whatever was showing on Toonami and Adult Swim that I managed to catch glimpses of.

.hack was my jam, though.

yeah, I mean Gundam Wing would have been the first anime to really hook me, but I don't know what actually got me thinking about anime as anime

Was Bebop for me but well after it aired in the US, I didn't start watching any anime until freshman year of college mostly because I didn't need to hide if I was watching anime from my friends since I didn't know anyone in college.
