I read Air Gear a long time ago, back when SC was scanlating it--like vol. 1 or 2. I'm curious, is it worth reading / buying? I saw that vol. 1-7 is out and also that up to vol. 18 is scanned.
tl;dr, is Air Gear any good? I remember it being decent for like two volumes back in the day.
Shitty story, hot girls, decent amount of fanservice/cocktease - save yourself the trouble and invest in real hentai manga/anime.
Just look at the pretty pictures and pay no attention to the story. You'll enjoy it a lot more.
Only worth it for the girls.
Air Gear's story was good enough for me. I have low expectations when it comes to OH!Great's stuff, so I enjoy it while you all whine about it. :D
Ouch. Guess I was remembering it a little more fondly than I thought.
See I used to follow Tenjou Tenge and then Air Gear showed up. I liked TJTG, but the story just became incomprehensible after a while.
Is Air Gear more organized?
lol no. The story really fell apart for me these past few volumes.
Artwork is really great. Story was mediocre and though it has been getting even worse I'll read it for the art anyway.
As of now, I'm so confused. What happened to Akito/Agito at the latest chapter and who's this new guy fighting Orca?
Goddammit. The art tends to be pretty good, but I was afraid AG would do the same thing as TJTG...
Well, maybe I'll just download it again, save my money for now.
Air Gear's art is win, the story is like LOL WUT.
Agito got owned, 3rd personality(lol) emerged to save the day.
new personality etc
I sort of figured. I remembered the earlier stuff being more coherent.
Oh!great really needs to hire a fucking writer.
Best scene ever
I always lol.
Ok, I lol'd.
I guess I'll keep reading. But is it a waste of money to get them in hard format? (granted, I collect any series I like remotely, so I may get it anyway).
lol, i dunno
Great Oh! is one of the best manga artists out there, and his seinen is healthy fap material as opposed to the loli/moefactory shit that typically characterizes seinen. However, he's kind of weak in the story-telling department; you want to keep reading TT but it fucking goes into this magic time trip Namek adventure and when it finally comes back starts getting fucked up in a bad way -- you just lose interest in that shit.
AG was mediocre shit right from the start. He tries to go for a shounen angle, but man he sucks at it. Worst male lead since ever.
Parts like this is why air gear rox
I still can't get over it. How does Ogure Ito (or Ito Ogure) turn into "Great Oh!"? Is this some kind of misguided attempt to look cool by switching the two words around like a normal Japanese->English name conversion? Or is this some kind of epic in-joke and I'm missing out on it?
..The fat guy rides on his head?
Obviously I need to keep reading now.
Yes, also during one of the "battles" he convinces his female opponent to strip naked.
After reading a bit of Tenjo Tenge, I can safely say that no ammount of booby fanservice will lead me to pay any more attention to Oh Great.
Which is not Great Oh!
I know what Oh! Great is. Not Great Oh! which I can't even end with a goddamn period because it has an exclamation point.
Can't he just draw hentai instead?
Or draw a manga written by Fukumoto or something?
That was a glorious moment for mankind.
Oh! Great -> O-Gu-re-i-to
>>10001433 Great Oh!
I lol'd hard 7/10
He did, but this stuff is more profitable.
it should be pretty obvious that that's where his roots lie, idiot
She had a nice ass.
It's a trap!
ringo's ass is addictive. I'm suffering from withdrawal symptoms ;_;
a hako is fapworthy too
true, it literally is a trap lol
Honestly, the last few months of air gear scanlations has me absolutely lost storywise. I have no fucking idea whats going on anymore.
From around the time those kids with the Nia eyes made their debut, I lost grips with wtf was happening. Gonna have to go back and reread it, definitely not a good mango to read week to week or longer.
God damn, Mimasaka had a nice body.
