Well, eventually after a while I made up my mind and registered to the forum.
What I seek is some insight or some help now and then to improve my skill. (And to show off sometimes)
Interests: Obviously manga, I have a passion for metal...and that's pretty much it for the relevant part.
Disclaimer: No, Riot does not come from "Riot Games", I've been making use of the nick for some time now, before LoL got so popular.
Hi please don't start a riot thanks
@Sylux: Why wouldn't I, that's just part of the fun, in a totally respectuful...and not so destructive (just a bit) manner
I noticed that it takes a reasonable amount of time to get marked as positive by the mods (not like I'd blame them) so I figured I might post on some on my own manga/anime preferences, with some explanation as to why I like those above others and just for the giggles a FAQ after that, so sit back, relax and enjoy the vage and not so professional commentary.
Top 10 on anime/manga and why:
NUMBER 10: HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD
NUMBER 9: NEON GENESIS EVANGELION
NUMBER 8: SWORD ART ONLINE
NUMBER 7: FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: BROTHERHOOD
NUMBER 6: SOUL EATER
NUMBER 5: UMINEKO NO NAKU KORO NI
NUMBER 4: STEINS;GATE
NUMBER 3: SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN
NUMBER 2: FAIRY TAIL
NUMBER 1: MIRAI NIKKI
So there you have it, now for some FAQ:
Q: Dude, have you ever heard about Dragon Ball Z? Like THE BEST THING TO EVAR HAPPEN?!
A: Why yes, I have, I have seen it as a child, as a teenager and as a young adult, and the more I see it, the more flaws I find in the plot. I won't say it's bad, if it were it wouldn't had drawn so much attention, right? But the only thing it has now to me is the nostalgia factor, and I wouldn't put it in a Top whatsoever.
Q: Duh, What about Naruto and Bleach? HUH?
A: I won't even start with Naruto, I mean...fillers! Oh God! And why do ninjas turn into super sayia...enough...
Bleach had one of the best starts ever, the idea of shinigamis was not that overly exploited as it would be now and it had much to offer, what happened was that this one guy, Ichigo, would soon become so ridiculously overpowered that basically he had to be stripped of ALL of his powers...now, ok, that might be reasonable...to end a story, a bit sad, but ok, the fact is it dosn't end there, and perpetuates into this "fullbringer" thing, I really stoped reading the manga at that point.
Q: What is it that you most hate in an anime?
A: To keep it short, I can't stand when they rush the adaptation of a manga to an anime. What happens is that the anime quickly reaches the manga, and then there's only 3 ways to go:
- The right way: Pause the anime, slap a "to be continued" over it, wait for the manga to get some distance, make season 2 (what I think they want to do with Fairy Tail).
- The wrong way: Make countless fillers to keep the people entertained so it dosn't drop in popularity, but what usually happens is that the fillers are so bad it DROPS the popularity down.
- The WTF way: Stray away from the original source or end prematurely, many animes suffer from this, they don't want to wreck it with fillers, so they make a storyline completely different from what the original thing was, most of the times, they do ir wrong (Claymore, Gantz, Fullmetal Alchemist, Soul Eater etc.).
Q: Any other titles you would like to mention anyway even if not on the top 10?
A: Well, I already have mentioned a lot of stuff, but just to make it official: Gantz, Tenjou Tenge, Death Note (although it's massively overrated, it's ok, at least until it gets to Near and Mello), Angel Beats, Another, Claymore, Chaos;head, Elfen Lied, Seikon no Qwaser, School Days, Slayers (with all the Next, Try and so on), Saber Marionette J (and J to X), Sailor Moon (and all the nonsense that came after: R, S, Super S), Shinsekai Yori (Warning: Yaoi/Yuri happens), Lucky Star, Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, One Piece...am I missing anything? I hope not...
Q: Everybody thinks they're a critic nowadays!
A: DOUBLE RAINBOW ACROSS THE SKY!
Don't take me in too seriously, at the end of the day, my humor could infuriate certain people, no harm intended.

Hey Riot, welcome to Manga Tutorials! Yeah... it can take awhile to get approved sometimes. Too many spam bots to go through through usually. FYI - if you comment one more time and it's approved, you should be able to comment anywhere in the forum. :>
Hahah! You're all good to go. ; )
