  • I'm sorry, if you were right, I'd agree with you.
  • I am a: Poko Priest
Since @BlazingBarrager is most likely still hunting the Space Duck in his dreams, i started a new topic to keep @Tofu's anime recommendations clean as per his request.

Lately portals like Daum started to add chinese comics (manhua) to their portfolio under the tag of webtoons which was prior korean only. As such i simply categorize both of them as webtoons.

I purposely excluded western comics from the title, because it usually leads to pitchfork fights. While i love to eat popcorn while reading heated conversations between Marvel and DC addicts spiced with the random slaps of which author interprets a hero better, those tend to be rather useless. So please refrain from recommending Superman and the likes because let's face it - @Kiyza knows more about that shit than any of us combined.

While violence is pretty common in a lot of popular 'comics', sexual content and gore are still not for everyone, so label reccomendations like Kenichi (there's an uncensored version) as mature.

After all that text which probably most readers skipped, i'm gonna start with some less known works that i enjoyed and in case if it's ongoing still do.

Spoiler for My recommendations:

Manga

UQ Holder: Pretty much continues where Negima left of and to my pleasant suprise, doesn't focus on the harem genre at all. Unlike Negi the protagonist sucks at magic and there's more distinct diversity among the sidekicks.

Onepunch-Man: Hilarious comedy about an undefeated guy tgat goes bald because he trained too hard. Drags every genre through the mud.

Sinbad No Boku: Sheds some light on Sinbad and his adventures prior to the events of Magi. The pathing is a lot faster and in general i started to like the trading company plot lately more than the BS that goes on in Magi.

Re:Monster (mature): The animation of Sword Art Online led to a re-boom in the dungeon and RPG area and Re: Monster is one of the better mangas in that field. The story follows a former human that become a Goblin after his violent death. By consuming his prey he gains new abilities and evolves in his class system.

Webtoons:

The Gamer: The protagonist becomes a RPG character with daily quests, levels, attributes and so on. Starts pretty generic but get's damn good once he understands his ability better and learns how to utilize it.

Blind Faith Descent (mature): Fantasy manhua about a boy that strives to become a poison type necromancer that wants to bring down the light and revive the god Kronos. Focuses on the Fire Emblem class system and spices it with fanatics and religion.

Aku no Higan: A story about the true value of your life and what you can buy with it. A boy get's almost killed by an Angel or Demon depending on the point of view and becomes his Underling with the goal to gain the same powers that over-earthly entity displays.

Feng Shen Ji:Gods still reign on earth until one king steps up to fight them, After his death his son takes up the task to bring down the gods and grant all races freedom. Start out hella slow but once everyone and their mither got a spotlight, the pathing picks up and the plot gets to the point where you can't wait for the next chapter.

Great! You got this thread going :D. Hope @Luke[Dumke] makes it sticky sometime soon.

I don't really read manga but I'll recommend Bleach because all of my friends say the manga (after the anime) is freaking amazing right now and it's my favorite anime anyway. I might start reading it if I'm not able to resist until it's over.

Edit: It's up to you if you want to count it as a vote or not. I just wanted to participate here since the thread got started because of me :P.

That's pornography.

BUSTED!!

To be honest I don't like manga, I prefer or watch anime or read light novels, mostly because of the details. The only manga I read was Death Note and I liked it, highly recommened.

@ShadowComplex it's lolicon, so i had to due to being NSFW.
@Tofu i naturally count it as a vote, however i disagree about the last arc since it's the worst one imo

Speak of the devil and the devil shall appear!

If I can just point out, it's a rather popular misconception that all western comics are like that -- it's mainly just superheroes and a handful of non-superhero characters that DC owns, like John Constantine. That said, if you need western comic recommendations, I can point you in the right direction, regardless of what you're in the mood for. I don't think a lot of other members read the variety of things I do, so it would be pointless to start a thread. Just shoot me a PM.

Anyway, I do have some recommendations. If you haven't gotten around to reading JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, you've made a terrible mistake and it needs to be corrected. VIZ is actually publishing the kanzenban (deluxe format) releases right now and it's the first time the series has gotten an official translation from the beginning. The rest you'll have to rely on unofficial scanlations for.

While it's not a series, I'd really like to mention the work that Junji Ito does on his horror manga. I'm a sucker for horror comics and this guy delivers big time. Most of his work is one-shot stuff and "short stories" (I'm not sure what you'd call a one chapter manga). His artwork is absolutely jaw-dropping. It's not exactly heavy on gore, but what I've read might be visually disturbing to someone who's never seen Japanese horror.

Gonna also put in a vote for One-Punch Man. It's pretty good stuff.

Okay first off I got that Space Duck like two years ago and had it for dinner. Was pretty good actually.

Secondly, a couple of suggestions I have are...

Dragonball: Yes I said Dragonball, and I also mean DBZ in that regard. One of the main problems with the anime is how much sh*t they get wrong in translation like the infamous "over 9000." The manga however has been much truer to the original, so I recommend reading that.

Elfen Lied (mature audiences only): The anime not only cuts off a little bit into the story, but it was also considered "lighter" as opposed to the manga. If you truly want to know what happens in the story, read the manga.

@Kiyza I considered reading Constantine, but the tv show was so disappointing that i didn't bother with it anymore. One Chapter only Mangas are called One-Shot.

Ugh. Three live-action adaptations of Hellblazer now and we still haven't gotten it right. I'm actually glad that Constantine got canceled. It'll give more room for Benicio del Toro to bring him to live-action properly.

Also, I'm extremely anally pained that my favorite DC character's first and so far only shot at live-action was in the form of a character whose only relation to the original was his name, profession, and religion. I'd rather newbies weren't introduced to Jim Corrigan through that half-hearted mockery.

I have to break the no western comics rule for a second. If you want to read something involving John Constantine, the trade for Books of Magic -- which is something like an in-universe beginner's guide to DC/Vertigo's mystic characters, and thus very useful for the uninitiated -- is only $17 and should be easy to pick up at a Barnes & Noble or similar bookstore.

We can stretch the rule i guess. Like if it's brought up, then discussions can freely evolve as long as there's no pitchforks involved. It's just not gonna be added to a third list unless we got enough people interested.

It's confirmed now? I thought it was still in the loop.

I'll look into it. Thanks.
