  1. Any recommendation on anime where the character is weak but does epic battles and stuff?
  2. Hi everyone! I am actually new to this and tried to introduce myself but I ended up commenting on a post how embarrassing. I hope to make new friends here I really have no one to talk about the anime and mangas I enjoy cause I legit have no friends and no one to talk about anime with. Soooo I am hoping to make friends here and just discuss about new topics , I have not been up to date on anime that are releasing but I do know of the ones that are being postponed due to COVID-19. However, I am a huge bleach fan and I want find anime similar in a way? Thanks!
  3. This is my first post in this forum. I don't know if this will reach many people, but that doesn't matter. I just want my first post to be about my favorite character-Itachi Uchiha from the anime 'Naruto'. Itachi Uchiha- The ninja from Konohagakure who sacrificed all his dreams for the sake of his village. A true dark knight. It all began when he was four years old and was standing in the middle of the aftermath of a Ninja War, where he desperately tried not to cry in front of his father, but couldn't stop the tears from rolling down anyway. Seeing all the dead bodies and the corpses with horrified faces twisted in agony, he decided then and there-He would get rid of war from the world and to achieve that, He'd become the best ninja there was. [mal type=character id=1] [mal type=anime id=1] Then something happened when he was five. An irreplaceable moment, when he held his lovely little brother in his arms. The responsibility he felt towards the little life he now held very dear was unfathomable. Sasuke- the only bundle of joy and hope and light that had kept him going within the darkness throughout his life. Itachi was a pacifist. He questioned 'reality' and 'truth' itself and always tried to see the world without any preconceptions. All he ever wanted was peace and to uphold the peace, he was determined enough to kill his entire family and clan-his own kin-for it. He'd do anything-anything for it, as long as it didn't harm his younger brother. Sasuke was the only one he could never lose in his life, the only one who he wouldn't allow to be sacrificed- his dear brother. The story of Itachi while did start out as a journey to become the greatest ninja and to rid the world of fighting, wasn't about that. In the end, it was all about the love for his younger brother and the bond between them. It was simply the undying love of an elder brother. Itachi Uchiha, the one who protected the peace from within the shadows.
  4. People think shanks is the strongest yonko but they never saw him even fighting. Yes, I'm talking about when people put their yonko power rankings and its something like 1st - shanks, 2nd - kaido .. etc.. Why shanks first when you already know that Kaido is the strongest creature alive and when it's 1v1 u bet on kaido... In my opinion, the list goes like this 1. Kaido. 2. Big Mom. 3. Blackbeard. 4. Shanks. But you can disagree. Big Mom, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated characters in one piece. A lot of people think she is the weakest yonko while we have only seen her get hurt by her own attack ones. She was able to defeat a 300-year-old strongest giant with one hit as a 5-year-old without her fruit and even Pirate King Roger avoided fighting her and stole her poneglyph. She even clashed with Kaido for a time and the fact she has such a strong crew might even make her the strongest if we also are talking about there crew.

  7. So I've been working on a chatbot based off of Nezuko from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. I think she's a fascinating character, and I want to give fans of the anime and manga the chance to talk to her since she doesn't talk too much on her own. Currently, I'm in the training phase so I've been programming her with questions users may or may not ask her. The only problem is I'm only one guy and I'm out of ideas of things to talk to her about, so I'm looking for community input. Keep in mind, she won't just be pre-programmed. She's going to be a mix of programmed responses and machine/deep learning based AI so she will, in essence, have a mind of her own. If you had the opportunity to talk to Nezuko, what would you say to her or ask her? It could be either questions or topics you'd want to discuss with her. Thanks!
  8. TL;DR I like Saitama more than Midoriya, and the themes of One Punch Man appeal to me more than My Hero Academia's. Also, hype culture is bad for any media. I will try to make this blog post spoiler-free, so no worries about that. However, I can't guarantee anything I source will be spoiler-free, so discretion is still advised. This blog entry was inspired from @Seshi and me talking on the Introduce Forums, found here. I tried to condense a lot of what I was thinking there, so hopefully it sounds more fluid here. Just to note, I'm going to call One Punch Man "OPM" and My Hero Academia as "BnHA" So, Seshi is not the first person to ask me why I rate BnHA so lowly. I admitted that 3 and 4 might be a little harsh for something that actually feels like it has heart poured into it, (and that I plan to change these ratings when I read/watch more of the show) but I still heavily prefer OPM over it. I find it interesting that these two are lumped together pretty frequently. Other than being action anime about hero organizations and ranks, I don't find them anything alike structurally. At their core, OPM is a meta-comedy with an overpowered main character that doesn't really get any stronger and BnHA is a battle shounen about progressively and constantly getting stronger. Anyways, the question I get a lot is "why did you enjoy OPM, but not BnHA?" Answering this question means explaining why I like anime to begin with. Compared to western shows and movies, (where I find the characters completely disconnected and shallow) I can relate to anime characters in the weirdest ways, and the more I slowly understand about a character, the more I can appreciate who they are. To give an example of this, Koyomi Araragi from the Monogatari series seems like a shallow character at first. However, as the series continues, more of his motivations and ideologies get revealed, which really made me admire his character and thought put into him. As for Deku, I felt like we knew everything about him from the beginning. He's kind of a timid kid who works hard because he wants to be like All Might. For the two seasons I watched, he's kept this same personality throughout both seasons, and it doesn't seem like he's going to change. I don't think this is necessarily bad writing, (many great works have no character development) but because of what I appreciate in anime, I don't like it when characters are shallow and unchanging. Conversely, I love when characters are deep or develop throughout the story, as it's showing that everyone can either change for the better, or is simply misunderstood. To move the topic onto OPM, I actually found Saitama's character to be more than "I'm bald man that kill in one hit". There are actually already videos explaining why Saitama is a representation of a depressed worker that feels nothing due to the harsh nature of the Japanese workplace, but I won't go into that in this blog post. Instead, I'm just going to mention that Saitama has an enthralling relationship with the other heroes, particularly Fubuki, Genos, and King. The dichotomy he plays with these other heroes is something unique and unlike most anime I've seen. The last thing I'd like to talk about here is the themes the two shows portray. From the first two seasons of BnHA, I found the theme to be "we shouldn't be afraid to follow in our predecessor's footsteps", especially in the second season with Todoroki. OPM, on the other hand, has a theme of "you should focus on improving yourself rather than comparing yourself to others", which is made apparent with characters like Genos and Glasses. I can appreciate both of these themes, but OPM's appeals more to me. I hope this a lesson that everybody takes to heart, as many people (including myself) don't feel confident because they're not as good as others' at doing something. I say screw that, be your own person. Are you a better person than you were yesterday? If so, then that's all you need. That's all for this post. Have any thoughts, questions, suggestions on this post or the next? Feel free to let me know, since I love talking and listening to others about anime. Don't be afraid to say something controversial, if it's what you truly believe.
  9. Sup ladies and gents, thought I'd get your opinion on the upcoming anime Sewayaki Kitsune No Senko-San. Originally, I started out reading the manga and I can't help the excitement I'm feeling for this show. I absolutely loved it's manga counterpart and can't wait to see Senko-San and all the other amazing characters come to life in the animation. I'm really hyped for this show and can't wait to see it in the form of an anime~! Anyways, how are you all feeling about it??
  10. This is the second entry in a series on how to make your own web manga. Now that you have a story idea we can start expanding it. For the sake of continuity, let’s say my chosen story idea is: We have an idea. Not a story. In its current form, it’s useless. It doesn’t give us much information. We have to take it from concept to actualization. We can do this by adding structure. Basic Story Structure Every good story has a beginning, middle, and end. Think of your favorite movie, book, or anime. They all have that. It’s what separates a good story from a bad one. Stories that don’t follow this tend to be incomplete and confusing. Beginning Takeji is a nerdy highschool boy. He’s quite tall and gets bullied for it constantly. This makes him want to quit school. Middle One day he meets a transfer student named Hayato who is also tall. Hayato shows him an NBA game. This motivates Takeji to learn the sport of basketball. With Hayato’s help he gets ready to try out for his school’s basketball club. End Takeji makes the cut and is accepted into the club. However, he also realizes how far he is from making it into the NBA. He has a lot to improve on first. This was only the first step of his long journey. Try reading this story again but skip the middle part. Confusing isn’t it? Club? What club? He wants to make it in the NBA? But why? I thought he wanted to quit school? Try reading it without the end part. It feels unfinished right? It makes you want to know what happened next. Was that it? That’s the whole story? Did he make his school’s basketball club? What is the “Beginning” for? This is where you do the introductions. Where does your story take place? Show the time period and setting. Reveal the main character and side characters. Give a taste of what people can expect. What is the “Middle” for? This is where you tell your story. This part will be longer than the beginning and end. The climax (highlight) of the story takes place here. The middle is the part that people find the most exciting. What is the “End” for? This is where you wrap things up. And provide a satisfying ending. You can also setup a sequel here. Like what I did in my example. Your story’s message should have already been delivered at this point. Our story idea has now been transformed into a complete story. Albeit a very short story. Next stop is to flesh it out some more.

  13. Sky Blue is a manga series that I love a lot. It's already been completed but it's not fully scanlated, so I'm currently waiting for every chapter to come out one at a time for me to read in English. I like the story a lot and I think it deserves to be popular. But I think I can safely assume that a lot of you reading this might have just been hearing about this manga for the first time. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of shounen battle with crazy super powers. But it's a bit more than that. It has a little bit of slice of life in the story. The closest manga series I can think of as a good comparison is Bleach. So if you are a big fan of Bleach you might like Sky Blue, or if you're a fan of action shounen manga in general you might really like it. I would really like to have a discussion with other fans on this manga. Like I said earlier I think Sky Blue deserves to be popular and maybe starting a fan community here is the first step.
  14. Does anyone have suggestions for manga and anime that my best friend (Jesse) and I could read/watch and review?

They're amazing!
  15. Hey all, Kuro here and I just finished watching the above mentioned title yesterday and am curious to know what anyone else who watched it thought of it. Right now its a 12-episode season with the 2nd season to air sometime this year (2018). Oni, a buddy of mine and co-worker had watched it and touted to me that it was the best thing ever to hit the market. So sitting down with extremely high expectations I watched it and felt that it was completely oversold. So okay, breaking down the whole I found that the entire 12 episode run had some severe pacing issues. At first it was manic and seemed like someone told the production crew that they only had enough money to make 6-episodes, and they were trying to cut corners by utilizing an information dump on us concerning the MC. Then all of a sudden they got told that it was cool, there was enough money for 12-episodes and they slowed the story progression down to a crawl. I also noticed that the entirety suffered from some form of ADD wherein the focus was constantly lost on the MC and diverted to the new and shiny all the time. Of course as for the MC, plain, dull and lifeless. However, the supporting character that spend the last six episodes with him was awesome. Well developed and tons of growth. Honest...should have made him the MC and left the other one out. Just my feelings. What was done right IMHO was the art and animation. Enjoyed the style with the sharp colors and tight lines. A very nice clean and satisfying experience visually. Outside of that though, everything else was completely unmemorable and I am very upset with Oni at this moment for allowing me to waste my time on this. Well, who am I kidding, I don't feel that anime is a waste of time as long as there was a hint of enjoyment out of it, and this one did provide that with the artwork. Anyway, let me know what you think if you've watched it, if not, take a peep at it and chime in. I'm interested in hearing if everyone see's it the way I did, or if I missed something and they saw a better series than I did. Cheers, -Kuro
  16. Are there any settings/gimmicks battle shounens could use to be original? We already have ninjas (Naruto), pirates (One piece), martial arts (dragon ball and couple others), superheroes (MHA) etc. Heck, we even have at least two wizard ones (FT and Black Clover)! Are there any settings/gimmicks left? Or do new battle shounens have to use something that has already been done? If yes, any ideas how they can make it unique from others?
