What did /a/ think of Air Gear? Specifically the manga
>>
Would've been better if it was just about the sport and they ditched the entire prophecy bullshit.
>>
Oh! Great loses it half way through. Not sure why I'm disappointed considering I knew he'd do it.
>>
I stopped reading when Obama started telling his story while in the body of a girl in virtual reality. It has amazing art and characters though.
>>
>>101335074
To be fair, Sora and the Doctor made that shit up
>>
>>101335185
You missed best girl winning the crow dick
>>
>Specifically the manga
One of my favorite shonen mangas.

One of my favorite OST.

And RINGO!, one of my all times waifus!
>>
>>101335239
I hope that by best girl you mean the one with various hairclips that was a tuner.
>>
Obama and the 99% killed it for me, plus the best girl got screwed over.

I never finished reading it.

Fucking amazing artwork, gorgeous girls, and the first half was a lot of fun.

Nope. But a Kururu would have been fine too
>>
>>101335239
Ringo won, right? I don't remember the ending very clearly.
>>
>>101335319
nope. He means what he means.
>>
While we're on the subject, does anyone else feel that Noragami has had an art that strongly resembles Ogure Ito's? Did he happened to have a part in the process of Noragami's art direction?
>>
>>101335542
Best girl.
>>
>>101335510
Holy shit, now I remember how mad I was when Kururu lost. She is still my waifu
>>
Simca was the best girl until she was raped and got her hair cut.

Anime is laughable because I'm not 14 years old. Haven't read the manga.

>>101334826
Awesome art, shitty story
>>
Ringo and Kururu are both amazing and waifu tier, and anybody who argues is a punk ass nigga

Simca a shit
>>
>>101335784
YES, she is much more better.
>>
>>101335784
Wait she has pink hair? I thought it was blond.

Shit now I don't know who best girl is.
>>
Like everything Oh! Great has done:

Awesome jaw-dropping art. Absolutely terrible story. The first half of Air Gear is probably the best thing he's ever done. Too be it drops the ball so hard once they get into that retarded prophecy shit.
>>
>>101334826
Awesome art, story turns into nonsense, but still has some good scenes. Kazu is best character. All in all, somewhat entertaining, 6.5/10
>>
The good:
- Art
- Art
- Art
- One of rare instances where the childhood friend won

The bad:
- Everything else
>>
>>101336063
I kinda hate the twist that turned the story into absurdness, but Spitfire and Aeon x Sora and Nike was one of the best fights ever made.

... If your suspension of disbelief is high, of course
>>
>>
I could barely understand what the fuck was going on towards the end. So many names and stupid bullshit.
>>
I've only seen the anime. I heard the manga turns into Dragonball Z with roller skates.

Same as Tenjou Tenge. It showed a lot of promise right up to the middle point, where Ito's need to introduce fucking stupid elements to the plot kicked in.

Why are the Kururu fans such assholes when the Ringo fans would have been okay with either one winning?

>best girl got screwed over
We never got to see her date with MC, did we?
>>
>>101337297
I'm only imitating what I see. I'm honestly not that rabid about anything.
That being said, Kururu was best girl, and Ringo was boring. Her tuning thing was shoehorned in and had no purpose since Simca was available and was an expert tuner. There was absolutely no need for Ringo to do anything.

I think that's what annoyed me more than anything.
>>
>>101337363
Nope. I'm angry.
>>
Is anybody reading Biorg Trinity since Ito's doing the art on it?

It looks fantastic.
>>
>>101337591
>It looks fantastic.

Same as Air Gear.

Awesome art.
Great characters.
Shit story that's a complete trainwreck at the end.

Ringo=Kururu>Akito>>>>>>random prostitute>Simca>shit>Hako
>>
>>101337678
Ito isn't doing the story. Also, his works always at least start off making sense. Maybe this author is a reverse Oh great and starts off incomprehensible and makes incredible sense later.
>>
>>101337797
I bet he high fives the writer when he finishes the story.
>>
>>101334826
I seriously wanted Kururu to win but I didn't mind Ringo winning which surprised me a lot.
>>
I have no idea what it is so I probably need to
UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND
UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND
before I give my opinion.
>>
>>101337783
>Hako
Who?
She barely has any relevance.
Only 3 girls are RIngo (won), Kururu (gave up), Simca (never had a chance). Akito/Agito never had any romantic feelings for Ikki.
>>
>>101338012
that's why she was less than shit
>>
Simca was best girl while Kururu would have been fine too since she's high up there as well.
Ringo a shit.
>>
Air gear still has probably one of the best OP's
>>
>>101338397
ON TOP TO BREAK TO CHAIN, NO PAIN
>>
>>101338397
>>101339558
Back on. The same guys did the OP for Gundam Build Fighters
>>
It's shit, just like everything else Oh Great has made
>>
>>101335510
>>101335299
Wait, Ringo won?
Picked the fuck back up.
>>
>>101334826
eh, I liked it. Had really nice art, and for the most part interesting/likeable characters. It was painfully obvious at a certain point that oh great was bored as fuck and stopped caring about the plot. Introducing obama as a relevant character in a girl's body, the fucking chapter-long metaphors, and my favorite one was when he introduced a rich exotic loli and her decapitated in the same chapter. But hey, I can't blame him.

All in all, every main character had their time to shine in the end and the best-friend character got the best girl, which is much more than I could've expected from most shounen.
>>
>>101340230
The loli lives and starts dating Onigiri
>>
>>101340264
>onigiri in that pimped-out limo

oh yea, that shit was great. That's what I liked about Air gear, oh great never completely discarded the main cast like most shounen shit.
>>
I never saw a thread for this while browsing /a/.
Now that I finally pick it up from my backlog, threads appear.
What the fuck, /a/?
>>
>>101341609
It's because /a/ is fake and it's all in your mind.

fanservice/10

I really liked the anime.

It's a shame they didn't continue that. Cause unlike something like Beyblades or any "sports" manga based on a gimmick like toys or something stupid, Air Gear knew what sort of story it wanted to be and played into it perfectly.
>>
It's very hard to read due to insane clutter on every page, and bad layout.
Art is nice.
Story makes zero sense.
Anime OST is GOD TIER.

I like Air Gear because it feels very modern.
I don't know how to explain it properly, it's almost as if it was written/drawn by a teenager, or something of the sort.
Does anyone know of any other manga with this feel?
>>
Man, the MC's friend who later became the King of the Flame Road or whatever was fucking bro-tier. Was he called Kasu or something like that?

I liked how he got relevant in the end and won his waifu.
>>
>>101345185
I liked how even if they weren't the MC most of the secondary characters got a good conclusion.
>>
>>101345277
Except Aeon Clock.
Why could he never earn Iki's love?

All I remember is ending up completely confused about the end of it.
God tier art though
>>
I need to read the manga.

I enjoyed the anime, but thought the ending of it was pretty lame, it left me with that "Is that is?" feeling. Watched it a second time in English and it has a godtier dub.
>>
Wow, this takes me back. Started reading well over 10 years ago and dropped out when it turned into a giant mess plot-wise. Awesome art though.

So did second best girl Ringo win? Please someone tell me Kururu and Simca got rekt
>>
>>101345277
It's hilarious because we never fucking get Ikki's story.
>>
>>101350619
You should finish it. Although it gets weird, the end is oddly satisfying.
>>
>>101354139
all I can remember of the ending was some of the girls turned into strippers or something like that. Also singing.
>>
>>101354289
That's roughly accurate. But Ikki blows up a tower before that and Simca was recording the epilogue because muh journalism.
>>
Agito is best girl, Emily and Kuurusu a great too.

Gazelle a goddess.
>>
It got really messed up. I think I dropped it when they started fighting on blimps or planes. I skipped all the way to final battle and felt like I didn't miss anything important.
>>
>>101356411
You missed Ikki being smart.
>>
Yayoi best girl
