I actually kind of like the idea of him being all alone in a Tokyo overrun by nature. Except he's fucking around, yelling at Tobidashi boy, and this is all in the penultimate chapter, so I mean, lmao. I'm prepared for a nothing finale.

It's kind of pulpy, but not as trashy as that kind of sci-fi. I particularly like the art at times, it kind of reminds me of Yoji Shinkawa.

More people reading (and liking) Wombs brings a tear to my eye.

This being the penultimate chapter makes me believe nothing will get explained in the last one.

Which makes all the set up about aliens to be quite frustrating, don't do set ups that you aren't going to pay off, you're better off leaving everything an unexplained mystery.

Well I might be jumping the gun though, hopefully I am.

After the last arc I'm glad this is ending though, I get the clear feeling that the author lost track of where to go with the story around the time Oda.

Sure, I know that there are various ways to get both popular or cancelled as a manga.

But poor characters, boring world and a lack of originality is definitely one to get cancelled fast.

It's not like every other jump manga to make it big did so only by being original. But I think all of them at least had some unique aspects to set it apart.
One Piece is the one about pirates, Naruto has the whole Ninja society/world thing, Soma is about cooking, death note had the book that lets you kill and an anti-hero, Jojo has its bizzare style, characters and powers.


Demons plan was just...There. It had the basics elements of a generic Shonen (teens getting powers, rival friends, "the will to protect", etc) but had nothing else going for it. Neither the world, not the characters, nor the powers, not the art was unique in any way.

I still find it weird that it got picked up in the first place. It was really bland from the start. Generic setting, boring main character, boring and unoriginal world/setting. Couldn't have been more generic if they tried

The first three chapters were pretty bad. It's weird when they greenlight something like that has initial structural problems.

In hindsight, Red Sprite really suffered I think from blowing its load in the first chapter (a lot of us worried about this at the time, but it really became clear after it failed to catch on).

Red Sprite's problem was that it was WAY too fast paced. Like to the point where it could be misconstrued as shallow even if there was more to it. It's like if in the first One Piece chapter they revealed DFs, the secret behind them, as well as the Warlords. And the gimmick was just too...narrow. Everyone was going to have electricity/magnetism based powers? That also weakened its potential.

But actually, it's funny, when you look at Demon's Plan and compare what it'd be like in the hands of a much better writer. Take the character introduced in Chapter 4 who could store weapons inside him. Then compare him to Bege Capone in One Piece, and look at how 2 similar powers play out drastically differently based on the vast differences in writing ability

I think there's only one person in the anime thread who didn't go ahead and spoil themselves on Fuuka's Chapter 37 but I'm still laughing at their assumptions about what this "twist" is. Although the anime seems to be veering off into Gecko Ending mode so who knows if they'll even bother with any of the stuff beyond it, although I'm guessing they're just stalling so that Episode 11 or 12 is Truck-Kun and the entirety of reforming the band gets compressed into the final episode.

we convinced a bunch of people to watch Fuuka in the Toonami thread, and nobody knows what the twist is yet, or that there even is a twist

Scumbag Loser Omnibus


Well, now I, too, own an unconventional weapon thanks to Yen Press.
I'd say I found the whole thing to be disappointing compared to how it started out, as it felt more gross than creepy. Title was pretty apt though, given the main character is such a damn scumbag loser even at the end of the story he manages to close it in a lame way.

+: I finally got to finish reading this story.
-: I had to, once again, put up with Yen Press awful way to handle onomatopoeia.

Happiness ch. 25

I somehow missed this chapter getting translated and, Jesus Christ, this better not be getting canned. An out of nowhere timeskip has me pretty worried. Thinking about it, the school setting was donezo, there really wasn't any going back to that. So hopefully this is all part of the plan. I've honestly been enjoying this more than anything else Oshimi's done thus far.

Yeah, Happiness has been running on all cylinders the past couple chapters. From the fascinating and disturbing artwork of Makoto getting caught and tortured, to Gosho getting her fucking carotid artery cut and not only surviving but escaping a burning house with that shit by jumping out the window, to a fucking 10 YEAR timeskip where it follows Gosho in her new life where she obviously hasn't forgotten about Makoto (as well as leaving Yuki's fate up in the air, if I recall) and the realization of the reader that if Makoto is like Nora than he still looks like a kid and Gosho is all grown up and he might have been tortured for 10 fucking years!

The manga is easily my favorite work from Shuzo Oshimi. Aku no Hana was alright but stumbled a lot.

Kuutei Dragons 4

Giraud's very subtle disdain for his dad in explaining how he got good at navigating was an interesting look into his character. Further explored by a story he was fascinated at as a kid but embarrassed about later, contrasted with Mika's single-minded immaturity (that of course is seen as a good thing). These first couple chapters have been good in establishing a single character in the crew while having Mika bounce off of them by their side to guide/catch sight of their aspects. This all of course leads up to Mika and Giraud seeing the Shining Dragon Giraud's dad was talking about and Giradu breaking into a wide smile that we've never seen before.

Would be kinda fucked up to let it take them through the storms and in thanks they fucking kill it and eat it lol

It's hard to keep up with it cause I think it had a sequel manga that was just...the manga more, and it's chapter numbering is like 8.1C and shit. Takes effort to follow it.

That being said, I might need to write more on this one, Daidai wa, Hantoumei ni Nidone Suru because it's so fucking weird. Each chapter is a barely connected story just because it's set in the same town, but it's just about all these weird happenings and whatnot.

Might be more effective to just post contextless images from it though, because they really are so weird.
