I bring you chapter 1 of "Little Boy," a very bad manga that no one should read. Not even a good kind of bad, just crap.

Story: Mamoru Sasaki
Art: Mitsuru Adachi

I like to speculate that this is the manga that made Adachi think "Heck, even I can do better than this!" and begin to write his own stories, with great results.

He didn't write it though. Just did the art for the story. There are about 5 or 6 such series out there where he just did the art.

It was also very early in his career, so he hadn't developed his SAMEFACE yet.

Except the weird 'i' I rather like it. I like to experiment with lots of different fonts, and I have a soft spot for lowercase.

That guy has been up to bat at least twice already, and not only has he managed to not score, he is only now realizing that the pitcher is throwing the same exact fast ball with the same exact timing every throw.

They're both retarded.

It's worse than that, because from >>100911537 we realize that he's been watching him pitch for even longer than that. If you watch a guy pitch that long and can't tell he throws the same fastball every singe time, you deserve to lose.

THE END ... of chapter one, but it only gets dumber from here.

Let's pretend it ended here. And they all lived happily ever after.

I hope you guys will remember this series next time you're tempted to idolize Mitsuru Adachi.

>>100914032
Why criticize the artist for the writer's flaws?
Adachi did well when he wrote and drew his own series.
>>
>>100914152
That's true, I guess. And I guess as a young starving artist, he had to accept whatever work he got to pay the bills. I mean, at least this isn't porn, right?
