Just finished reading the last volume of Yowamushi Pedal and SHAMO.

I was pretty hyped for some more fighting manga, so I read the first volume of Holyland......meh, I hope it gets better.

You should watch the liveaction while you're at it. It's pretty damn good. It's missing some of the better scenes, like the twins role is way cut down, but they also change a few things in ways that I'd say is better. Basically, watch it if you want more, but different.

I guess. It's really whether you like Miike's style or not. He can really jump from serious to fucking nuts within a second. The ending I thought was actually a touch better, and some of the gruesome scenes were way nastier, but then some of it was way more "wacky".

But I thought the original was already kind of like that, just less extreme both ways.
>>
I just finished Battle Royale.

Why do people say The Hunger Games is a Battle Royale rip-off? Totally different concepts of the game and less in-depth characterization
>>
>>100505445
No. That's not true at all. You're like Hollywood who just shoehorns romance into everything.
It's retarded, and you're retarded.
>>
>>100505674
Because those two are literally the only movies they know about that deal with those themes.
>>
>>100505718
NO U

I didn't say it has to be explicit romance, it just needs to be sexual tension. Like the MC is in a corridor with a woman to his right side, and he glances at her and she's looking right back at him. Maybe she's stroking a gun in her hand while she's doing so, maybe she's liking it, maybe the gun is a penis.

My point is sexual tension tickles an itch for the viewers, that being said it can be overdone, hamfisted romance is infuriating for me.
>>
>>100505638
I dislike Miike's style. I'm not sure what the appeal is. I'm not a film buff though, so maybe it goes over my head.
I don't think that anything was really nasty in the film. It all looked like B movie effects, probably because it was.
I never really thought of the manga as wacky, definitely outlandish, but never even as close to how the film was.
>>
>>100505865
Shoehorning sexual tension is just as bad. There is nothing that will make a manga better 100 percent of the time.

Shoehorned sexual tension is bad, admittedly, subtle sexual tension though is good.

>>100505674
If you genuinely can't see why people say The Hunger Games is a battle royale rip-off then something is wrong with you.

Totally different concepts of the game? Yes, some concepts and aspects of the two games in their respective universe are totally different, but the core concepts of the books are pretty much the same. Students, young people, in a deadly arena type game killing each other with various provided weapons.

less in-depth characterization, different variations of the game, off course it's not going to be EXACTLY the fucking same. It doesn't mean it's not a rip off because you just change a few things about it.

Hunger games is way too shit to even be compared to battle royale in my opinion though.
>>
I'm reading Hokuto no Ken right now. The scans are awful which is kind of sad, but I like it so far.
It's full of manly tears moments, though a lot of them have been really predictable.

No, in Battle Royale they were students and in Hunger Games they were kids from 12 to 18, that could also offer themselves as "sacrifices", who were trained in one-on-one combat and given sponsors based on charisma while on Battle Royale they were randomly kidnapped and given fire weapons and needed to stay on the move all the time or else their heads might blow up.

The pressure and atmosphere was tons different. And survival isn't a topic that wasn't touch yet, the only thing that changes is both added the whole TV show thing.
>>

Battle Royale AND Hunger Games rip off The Long Walk and The Running Man.

>>100505985
Minor nitpick with Mori Kouji (Holyland mangaka). Does he allways butt in in the middle of the narration and talks to the reader? Because it kind of ruins the mood a bit.
>>100506033
Haven´t finished reading it, but as far as I know he does manipulate and uses Ichi for his own profit. Take that as you wish.

I would like to see more Yamamoto adaptations. A Homunculus Live-Action series could be pretty good.

That sacrifice thing is a pretty massive plothole, because they clearly state she's the first to have even tried. The whole time up till then it was just totally random as well.

For me, the ripping off becomes clear when you look at how political they both are. They both have youths fighting to the death in arena's, and both use it as a launching point for some commentary on politics. The mechanics of the fight are different, but there's a lot of simmilarities in themes and what they're trying to attack.

The problem is, Hunger games came much later, and it's extremely fucking stupid. There's been other, similar things before, but very few of them handle it as similarly as those two works do.

great read, good stuff right there. Dreamt for months about how my former class was forced to go through same shit, it was some good stuff.
Would be cool if they made another one. But in this one, the remaning survivors had to go to a "2nd round" where they fought other survivors from other classes, and this happened all around the world so in the end, people who survived beating not only the kids in their class, school, district, city, nation etc, but they then had to fight people from other nations who had gone through the same thing, and in the end a final round with kids who had survive and beaten everyone in their nations. Then it could be like in Vagabond(you get to follow pretty much a whole life story from multiple characters) where you get to follow every single kid who shows up in the final round (nation vs nation vs nation....etc). And the beginning of the series could have something like kingdom, first chapter is the start of the final round, close ups on all the kids who survived every single round in their nation. And then you first get to follow then japanese, then some other nation etc (life story that is). They could milk out about 5k chapters on this series and make shit ton of cash, since the concept is selling really well.

-Sharp (knives) will ALWAYS beat blunt (baton, fist)

It's really more that knives in media are always seen as this easily avoided miniscule advantage that never hurts anyone, and any basic kung fu-er can just flail-slap it away from them. When instead, they're extremely serious, massive killers and there's very few techniques that work at all, let alone are reliable. Swapping knife hands can take an untrained thug a second, and even grabbing the hand wont stop them from cutting the wrist up.

And a single mistake can cause some nasty damage, much more permanent than just fists. It's just not a situation anyone should ever want to be in.

MW was weird. I feel like it had the makings of a great manga, but failed to deliver. And just like with Ode to Kirihito, I feel like certain parts of the manga were very forced or destroyed my suspension of disbelief (the girl who was raped falling madly in love with Michio for example).

>I'm not a fan of gekiga manga having so much beastiality in them though

I wouldn't call it a trademark of gekiga. Frankly Tezuka's attempts at gekiga are really just that. For me they're too tryhard and he seemed really torn on making these kinds of series. On the one hand, he probably didn't want to be resigned to children's things, but on the other, I don't think he liked having all this violence. It's not to say that his works aren't influenced by gekiga, but if you want actual gekiga, you need the guys who were actually underground.

Gekiryuuchi. It was axed too soon and the secondary characters are retarded, but putting that aside it's fairly entertaining. Gives a Holyland vibe with MC being a bullied kid before learning to fight.

I'm reading old long running classics. Right now Yu Yu Hakusho, but I cannot find scans of the official English release of volumes 17-19. If somebody knows please tell me. Otherwise I will switch to a French translation since scanlations are fucking awful for this series.

or busy as fuck, I do it as a reward at the end of the week but sometimes I can't help it and I end up reading two chapters so on average its about 5 chapters a month.

Guy who finished the latest of Shamo and just started Holyland here.

From what I can judge now, Shamo´s character exposition is way better than Holyland´s. Some chapters may be considered blatant filler, but it really helps to see behind Ryo´s thousand layers instead of just "oh he is an asshole and fights dirty, look at him and shiver"

Holyland´s only flaws imo by now (4th volume) ist the allready mentioned author ramblings in >>100506369
>>100507667 and if you´re picky the art style. But I kind of feel fond for the friendship trio that just got introduced (MC Yuu, Shin and that karate guy).

tldr. Check Shamo, you won´t regret it ( and endure the monkey kung fu arc, trust me).

I love shamo, and i remember starting hollyland and going quite far. Like further than 5 volumes in, passed the first few arcs and something made me quit. I think I felt like the story and character was going nowhere, didn't really enjoy the artstyle either.
I don't even like fighting/martial art mango that much, was reading Shamo more for the Ryo's story which I found was interesting.

Are you saying that the Hunger Games has less characterization, or that Battle Royale does?
If you mean Battle Royale, just think of how many characters are in it. The story follows many characters, showing the deaths of about 40 (I believe, it's been a long time) different people. Whereas the Hunger Games is from one perspective with at max 5 characters with 'in-depth' development. Obviously those 5 characters are going to be more fleshed out, even if Catniss is a mary sue.

You are a fucking pleb to begin with. It doesn't matter what you do with your pleb series.

>>100529191
Anime is fine and has a good soundtrack, but does change things up a bit.
Some scenes are condensed, similar scenes merged and the pacing can be a bit annoying at times, though not nearly as bad as when it was airing.
It does have filler, but official, author written filler that he wanted to include in the manga but didn't have time to.
Biggest change are the last two episodes. It's not a break off from the manga, but it switches things around and adds some stuff on top of it. Bad stuff, but you probably won't notice it until you read the manga.

Read Black Museum Springald yesterday, a manga Hox scanlated by Fujita, the author of Ushio to Tora and Karakuri Circus. It was pretty entertaining with some stylish art. The short sequel oneshot was also extremely cute.

I've also been continuing the never ending task of catching up on Ippo. I'm around volume 38, during the Hammer Nao fight. I've watched the anime up to where it currently is and have found the manga a lot better than the specials, second season, and third season. I'm looking forward to the Hawk and Sawamura fights in the manga.
