There are plenty of well-written tragedies out there because a tragedy needs to be written well in order to be effective. But how about well-written comedy (in its traditional definition)?
Happy isn't a comedy. I assume you knew there was a manga called "Happy!". : )
I've read comedy manga's but I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for... It's not slapstick comedy though, right?
Allow me to clarify.
The traditional definition of tragedy was a story in which the hero made the wrong choice, i.e. Romeo and Juliet. A comedy was one in which the hero made the right choice. So when I say I'm looking for a traditional comedy, I'm looking for a happy manga: the opposite of a tragedy. I should have said that to begin with.
So I'm looking for a happy-ending manga with deep characters and a good story. Preferably light in tone, too.
fairy tail is pretty light.
My Story Thread
If you took the time to read this, you can just call me Al, or Stan.
So when you say comedy, you don't mean a funny thing?
Goddammit he means like The Divine Comedy.
Just something happy and/or hopeful. Come on, I just read Wolfsmund. Excellent writing (probably the best I've seen in manga), but the most depressing thing I've ever read. Is it too much to ask for excellent writing and a hopeful story?
I'll start reading Fairy Tail. Is it well-written or standard shonen-action fare (or well-written shonen-action fare)?
I'd go into detail about why I'm looking for a happy story, but I have a feeling I always overexplain stuff on this forum.
free collar kingdom is pretty happy. its drama/comedy but not very ...deep
