what do you think about ONE?
Shitty art, great stories and humor.
I think you should leave.
OPM is probably the funnier of the two, but MOB has a better story and I like the action more for some reason
It's not so much "shitty", as it's "distinctive" and "stylish". They work perfectly with his writing and I wouldn't want it any other way (yes I said it, screw murata).
Hey, he can hold his own with storytelling as well. The extra with license-less rider was one of the better episodes I've seen in anime/manga.
you do realize it's ONE who gave murata the script for every special chapter? Murata is literally "just" the artist.
they are written by ONE too though
i wouldn't say it's not bad, it's certainly bad...in SOME areas, in others he excels other mangaka a lot. A lot of mangaka forgot how to use Ink properly and only do screentone out of laziness, wile ONE is incredible skillful how to use it.
Really? I didn't know that. Well, Murata still has his dedication and art going for him, not to mention if he didn't recognize the genius of ONE, we might not even have heard about him either.
I wish I knew how to search him in the archive to see what people are saying about him. Personally, I'd say he's a good writer, pretty funny and his art grows on you after a while. In fact I can confidently say that I love his artstyle. Is he a newer mangaka?
>Is he a newer mangaka?
Not really, his Onepunchman online comic and Makai no Ossan have cult status in Japan and Mob is quite succesfull as a normal manga too. Only in the west is he "new" and only thanks as the writer for the Manga version of Onepunchman drawn by Murata
It didn't help no one translated OPM before Muratas version.
I love Murata's art though, I think ONE and Murata make for the perfect combination.
Also, how could you say "screw murata" after his gorgeous drawings of the Mosquito lady, Miss Blizzard and Tornado?
One writes a great story and is perfectly capable of great art, he is just a lazy shit. Meanwhile Murata is borderline autist with his art. Perfect combo.
>ONE delivers one chapter of mob psycho every week, that means writing+drawing everything by himself, without a big studio to back him up
Murata's art doesn't really do the whole atmosphere of opm justice. It's nice to look at first, but all of murata's women look the same and it gets repetitive.
honestly, i think Murata would be better off drawing mob psycho, a manga with an actual story than a spoof. His art is simply way too serious to convey the silliness that is OPM.
But it is shitty. It's pretty obvious that he draws lazily and is actually capable of doing lots more. His panel work and pacing are great.
are we talking about opm or mp here? Opm is drawn shittily on purpose.
Well, I say we can all thank Boon for being the first one to discover Murata's OPM and say "I can't believe no one has translated this stuff yet".
Both, pretty much. MOB gets more effort, yes, but if he really tried to improve the art he could get it serialized in a magazine.
I would say that the incredible artwork of everyone and everything that isn't Saitama serves as a contrast for whenever you get QUALITY Saitama.
MOB's art is not that bad, and at least it is in its entirety over the doodle treshold (as opposed to some parts of OPM).
At the end, not everyone can draw greatly. ONE might not be that good a drawer in today's industry standards, but he's aware of it and goes with what he has. I don't see a problem with him.
What I'm saying isn't that ONE is a bad artist. I'm saying he's better than he appears to be. Sure, not Murata tier, but better.
Do we have an official drawing powerlevel tier referebce list, now that I think of it?
Not that I can think of. Generally speaking, /a/ adores Murata, Miura, some love Oda while some hate him, think Oh! Great is good but sucks at stories.
I like the guy from Blade of the Immortal. His characters look Japanese as fuck, but still mangaish.
Concluding that he is "perfectly" capable if we observe all his works is stupid.
>One Punch Man
>Mob Psycho 100
>Makai no Ossan
I don't know ANY of ONEs creations but these three are the ones I know, please point me out towards a source that has great art made by him in which I can draw the conclusion hat he is "perfectly capable" of doing so.
In before that drawing of "god", which was good compared to his other art, but nothing great given how much time he spends on his works usually, and how much time he probably worked on that one.
Panel work and pacing are narrative aspects and have not much to do with the technical aspects of art because the centerpoint of doing panel work is because of the narration and not because it fits within the art. It's not linking within making good artwork.
But I have to say that ONE is great when it comes to that and while he doesn't draw good, it is shown that his works have character and are charming. Sometimes the art is good, or sometimes just not as good as many of his other stuff he pulls out. However, some of his art is just not good.
I'm no shitposter but if people just say that I he is creative and has a good way to work with his ways of narration.
And to the very least his "The Heart" pannels work as they should and not to confuse the readerbase so much they suspect trolling.
