Just finished reading this. What did /a/ think of it?
I liked it, shortcomings aside. I'm glad the author was aware his main character was unlikeable and didn't try to paint him as the hero.
I nearly killed myself because I related to the MC too much.
I'm sorry to hear that.
Dieting is super fucking easy. Hygiene should come naturally after you start, you won't be able to live without a shower every day. Just take steps to fix things.
What did you think of the end?
It had to end though because he went on to create better works.
I think the penis virtualizer is expensive.
I kind of liked it. It was rushed but felt appropriate.
What other works did he do?
Most notable one is I am a Hero. Also did Boys on the Run.
I am a hero is very good though.
I thought it was shit. He'sbasically back to where he started, lonely and in a job with no real prospect. Didn't even get hooked up with that chick and her cyber baby.
Oh I've read the first bit of both of those.
I couldn't stand the main character of I am a Hero, I'm pretty early though, chapter 32. It wasn't appealing to me too much, does it get better?
Don't make me read Boys on the Run, please, I couldn't handle it.
Exactly. He refused to diet or bathe or do anything to better himself. He deserved it. He was a horrible human being and treated everyone, not just the programs, like toys.
Seriously, the series feels so meaningless.
At least it wasn't a generic ending.
I am kind of pissed that he just ended up back to being a loser and she lost her memory of him, if i remember the ending correctly.
I really enjoyed it honestly
the ending made me think about some stuff
sometimes settling for an unstable bitch would be better than someone who you are entirely happy with, especially if the unstable bitch likes you for who you are, and not who you pretend to be
Its a goldmine of facial expressions. Picked up.
I think it was meant to be meaningless. He was a pathetic useless loser who refused to amount to anything. What did you want to happen? He ends up with the beautiful co-worker? He somehow goes back to normal with Moon? He starts fucking the now real Moon straight out of the womb?
He was a piece of shit and deserved what he got. Hell, he got a store for free and a means to support himself. Frankly he lucked out.
I don't know about that, anon. Though a relationship can't always be happy. Just as long as you trust the other person and things are stable.
not to mention its pretty spot on for its references
>He ends up with the beautiful co-worker?
Yes jackass, everything in the entire manga led up to him being able to be with that co-worker, a real girl, and the ending destroyed that. That's how the ending should have been.
I'm still trying to figure out the title, like, why did he name it that
>What did you want to happen?
I didn't expect a happy ending but at least that he learn something, he don't learn shit, making the whole thing pointless.
And she kind of looks like Mugi. Hnnnngg
Or at the very least get into a steady relationship where they raise their daughter together and he at the very least lose weight or something
The message I got from this manga was "Life sucks, don't even bother".
he lost his job at the factory and -had- to take over the lunchbox stand after his father passed away
hes clearly just scraping by, hes even missing one of his front teeth during the scene
honestly I was expecting them to start raising moon together, but I'm at the same time really glad that didnt happen, makes the whole thing so much more realistic to show how pointless life is when you fuck it up that badly
No, the entire manga led up to him being a miserable fat piece of shit, because that's what he was. He refused to fix anything in his life even when solutions were handed to him on a silver platter.
In fact I would say what you're thinking of was actually build up toward him losing the one real girl that actually gave him a shot.
I expected him to kill himself. Not even during the thing with Moon and the furher, after that. I expected to see his feet dangling on panel.
But the point was that he didn't even bother. He never tried and just complained all day. The message is "If you don't fix shit it won't go away"
>But the point was that he didn't even bother. He never tried and just complained all day. The message is "If you don't fix shit it won't go away"
In that case I hate the ending because he never grew and the manga ended so that he never gets the chance to. I hated the ending all the same.
That's completely fair. I just don't understand why people would want that disgusting selfish piece of garbage to have a happy ending without growing up.
Let's use Gantz as an example. All the flaws and complaints about it aside, the main character's development was actually pretty good. He was an awful piece of shit but actually learned things and took steps to fix himself and his situation. This lardo just complained about it and told himself he was worthless. He deserved what he got.
the character did grow, just he didn't change much at the end, he ended up reverting.
he didn't really like how the hot co-worker was so hot headed talking to moon. I dont know if you've ever had women fight over you before, but typically the one which seems more like a psycho during it tends to be less attractive of an option.
Moon did care for him, but then Moon tricked him, his co-worker genuinely cared for him as well and although she was a bit brash and rude, never did anything to hurt him overly, past when she was hungover and hurt his feelings.
I dunno man, I think the entire thing could have worked out between the three of them if it wasn't for 'murica getting involved.
COD KIDDIES RUINED EVERYTHING AGAIN
I DONT THINK HE EVER RETURNED THE SEX SUIT
MONKEY HITLER IS BEST PLOT TWIST
Moon and him could have been happy. I don't want to call him a cheating fuck because he did see an option with a real girl, so it was a bit more complex of an issue, but they could have been happy if he didn't cheat like that.
I don't think the co-worker could have worked out. She was just very lonely and in a terrible state of mind. I've been there and so have you. She would have realized how shit he was in a week or two.
I liked monkey hitler a lot. I think the author intended there to be more build up, but it was pretty neat. You see the midget in his suit when he's fighting the demon thing.
I love the banter between monkey hitler and the doctor, its so great how hes just sitting around cockily talking about being 6 years old and living in a cage, not having parents, since you already know most of his troops are shitposting kiddies, and how he plans on just killing literally everything he can, since he knows hes going to die soon anyways
its just such a strange and satisfying turn of events
Ya, I liked it a lot. It made his motivations actually make a lot of sense. Usually "destroy the world" sounds fucking retarded.
If you look, his expressions while spying on the fat ass are even chimp-like. It might just be the artists style, considering the other reactions in the manga, but I like to think it was him being subtle. I also really adored that he modeled his avatar after his caretaker, and they even misdirect you by showing you the caretaker in the real world
But where did a monkey learn to speak english, get a computer, and identify poison by taste?
the computer, and teaching it english made sense, but the knowing its poisoned right away threw me off a bit, but knowing the effects of poison could be enough to identify it after already eating it depending on what it was, feeling your heart slowing down and what not
then again they probably overheard that conversation about putting down animals after they started eating it
Eh whatever, I can suspend my disbelief. I liked the twist a lot and thought it was pretty clever. Again, I did think the author intended to give more build up though. I enjoyed the read quite a bit, in whatever way you can enjoy a story like this.
Good night /a/. Maybe I'll read some more I am a Hero tomorrow, oh or maybe some Punpun, I like Punpun
night bro, sweet dreams and dont pee in the lake
And you shouldn't let your friends borrow yours
to be fair, he only let him borrow the suit, he bought his own dick cup with the money he borrowed from the office hotty
He was not unlikeable.
>"my vagina stinks"
>a shower every day
>killing your skin
it hasn't fallen off yet
>not acknowledging that fatty stank way worse than her vagina
Just finished it as well. Terribly depressing ending.
The ending sucked.
His other works are better.
Anybody else want to seriously fuck Nagao? Goddam what a hot slut.
