I know I'm gonna get *whaped* for this one but I hated "Fushugi Yugi" and "X" Both of them had something in common. Going no where really, really fast. Something about Yuu Watase's stuff, I just don't like it. Sorry, Ms. Watase, but I just don't find your comic plots interesting. Your art work is pretty nice, but the plot I can't get into.

I loved Iceblade! ^^;
And X and FY too xD

But then again,i'm one of those people who isn't happy without a little odd symbolism,death and worldly destruction here and there.

I really REALLY *hated* Steam detectives.
Just the artwork makes me twitch,the characters make me spasm in agony. o.o;

I know I'm going to get snapped at for this but... Sailor Moon. I love the Anime and have all the manga's as collectors items, but just the way the story moves is boring in the manga's. It seems every dialouge is a question.. "Bunny?" "Mamo-chan?" "Luna? Luna!!" "The dead moon circus?" Everyone seems so confused, and their is hardly a dialogue over a couple words long.
Wonderful art though. I can never copy Naoko's style. Wonderful artist.

Oh yes, and I own Miracle Girls as well. I feel I wasted my money! It looked cute, but I didn't even finish one book without falling asleep.

i couldnt get more than 20 pages into Real About High School, it confused the hell out of me....i just had to stop reading it and havent picked it up since

Gothic_Lulu
12-27-2002, 09:07 PM
Meh, probably Wish and Steam Detectives.....

I think the plot was weak in Wish and I did not like the artwork in Steam Detectives.....Also I guess the Nadesico manga that is also made by the same person who did Steam Detective (which is wierd because I liked the Anime Nadesico a lot).

videogirlc
12-28-2002, 07:22 AM
I think one of the reasons I couldn't get into the Nadesico manga was becausse of the artwork. It is so different.

Dragon Knights, Real Bout High School, and Miracle Girls are three mangas that I couldn't even get through one chapter of.

There were two manags that used to run in Animerica a while back that I really disliked. One was Area 88 and the other was that "classic" about the train. Galaxy Express 999 I guess. I really didn't like either and I remember being upset about how long they ran for.

I'll probably get screamed at for this, but... I really can't get into GTO, simply because I don't like the artwork. I know I will eventually read some of it because I've only heard good reviews, but it's not high on my list, and I probably won't buy it. It's important for me to like a manga's art (probably the only reason I can read Clover), and what I've seen of GTO just looks ugly.

Miracle Girls definately. It's so bad ><.

12-31-2002, 11:08 PM
Wish!! My gosh! It's so corny... But I have to buy the rest of it because I already got the 1st one...

What's wrong with Real Bout High School? The manga is so much better than the animated series... It starts out kinda slow, but later on it gets really good.. It turns into a guys vs. girls brawl.... Plus, haven't you noticed any coincidences with similarities from Ruruoni Kenshin?? The main character's name is Ryoko Mitsurugi and later on she joins a team called the Shinsengumi or something like that....

Chas
01-01-2003, 02:53 AM
Aww... Wish is like, my favorite manga..

Then again, to each his/her own... because I cannot STAND the Utena manga. @.@

Did you read the original manga, in japanese, or the english version? I know that the company who did SM manga trans. really messed it up. Esp. with the names. Poor poor Usagi-chan. But yea, original isn't that bad 'cept if you don't know japanese well enough to read it then I guess you're stuck looking at the pics or using the english version. Damn japanese translator butcherers!!!

I HATED the artwork of dark angel and silent Mobius.
The women looked like men too me.and not even attractive men e.e;

RoseDuelist

I read the translated version. I don't speak japanese nor do I try. I'm already consumed with becoming fluent in french. If I pick up a third language I'll just get more confused. If I had a one on one teacher I may try, but those classes... yeesh... french is hard enough!! At least they use the same alphabet. I couldn't imagine learning all of that Kanji stuff right now... *sigh*..

Hey, at least I'm not one of those people who mispronounces words. The most I've done ever is look at my friend confused and go "nani?" in the cutest damn voice I could do...

Man.. I ramble a lot..

*ahem* Back on topic, it was the english version. I got them all out of collecting purposes only. I have the Utena manga in Japanese and all I can do is look at the "pwetty pictures".. ^_^

Miracle Girls, DBZ(hated both manga and anime), and GTO.

And although I don't HATE the Kodomo No Omocha manga, I still think the anime is way more funnier than the manga...granted I'm still thankful for the manga cuz of the anime. ^_^

I actually got quite bored of Sailor Moon after awhile. It seemed like all that was happening was the scouts getting bigger crystals to fight with, discovering of new freaky mother/daughter relationships and introduction of more sailor scouts. A little too redundant to keep me buying.

>>I HATED the artwork of dark angel and silent Mobius. <<

I luv Kia Asamiya so...um I really disagree with this..but it is my own feelings, after meeting him and all...

I hate...HATE...planet ladder, it is soooo boring I couldn't get past the first few pages. Sailor Moon gets boring after the first two books....esspecially when you know the TV series. The Inu Yasha manga also gets boring at times when you've seen the TV series...alot of them do. I don't like the english version of DBZ, they tried by adding in like Japanese names, but I don't like it at all, the Japanese version is so much better.

Magic Knight Rayearth, sorry peeps. It seems way too childish for me, and the shape of the eyes upset me, they looked like razor blades. The only good part was the plot twist, something I think CLAMP has a set formula with. I think I just didnt like MKR cause I was a lil late at reading and/or seeing it, way to kiddie. Can anyone specifically say what is good or bad about Clover cause i was thinking of trying it.

Setsuna22
01-21-2003, 06:09 PM
Clover is, in my opinion, very good, but very different! The story really ends by the second book, and the third and fourth book just explain things that didn't really seem to make sense in the first two books, and go into better character develpoment! If you like CLAMP, you'll definitely love it! I liked it a lot, and the artwork is beautiful! However, this is only my opinion! You might wanna see what some other people have to say! ^^

I feel the same way Katchoo. I have like 2 volumes of Clover and the story line just doesn't catch me. Though I have to say the pictures are beautiful!

Hmm.. let's see. Oh! Most definately "Clover" Totally hated it.

What was the plot?
No idea.
What was with that white background?
No idea.
What was the point?
No idea.

CLAMP can be forgiven though. They've done so many good ones.

gotta love them supernatural powers ^^;; it's not so bad if you concentrate on the artwork ><;; and ignore the white space. make up ur own story if you feel the urge and yeah i agree clamp's other stuff definatley makes up for it.

Clover is pretty, but I just don't get what makes it so great (at least in my sister's eyes) nothing other than pretty pictures stand out for me. Wish, I dislike greatly. again, my sister thinks it's the greatest thing ever so go figure.

Peach Girl and Mars felt way too much like high school, so it's amazing I finished the first volume of either one. it's like, if I wanted to see that much drama, I'll just go to school. no need to be exposed to it in my free time. or maybe I'm just not the target audience for overly dramatic and/or angsty teen romances. meh.

I actually liked the Dragon Ball (insert Z here) very much.

But yes....Clover did offend my eyes for the most part. The art was relatively terrible and I never really warmed up to the plot. Ah well.

02-04-2003, 08:32 PM
Am I the only one that liked Clover??? ;_; I thought it was really good.....

Luckily, I haven't read any mangas that really "bored" me. The only one I didn't like that much was Peach Girl, but it wasn't really boring. It just didn't interest me.

Planet Ladder. It was interesting in the beginning, but afterwards it just grew to "I'm getting tired of reading this". :\

Clover owns. It wasn't cyberpunk, but close to. It had an abrupt, not-very-nice ending. -_-; But, I liked it overall. *bangs everyone who didn't like over the head* XP

Kataiya
03-07-2003, 07:06 PM
I think Leiji' style is very well executed animated, like in Queen Esmeraldas, Harlock etc, most notably the Daft Punk videos, but I don't think it stands well as still animation, or manga :o

Kia Asamiya's style bugs me however, the big noses and narrow eyes really make the characters look unattractive. It wasnt that bad in Silent Mobius tho.

Hmm...anyways, for manga that bore me. I would say Rumiko Takahashi is good for 2-3 novels, but it gets repetitive after a while, especially Ranma 1/2 ::dodges chair:: I usually get into CLAMP stuff, I even got into Angelic Layer despite the squigglies, but I couldnt seem to get into Wish either. Very pretty pictures tho
