I just finished watching this. Generic shonen is fucking GENERIC. Also, lol willpower and protecting everything.
>>
Did you enjoy it though?

(Kidding, I found it a bit too hard to continue past ep 4.)
>>
Horrible manga/anime
>>
Bleach rip-off.
>>
You watched the whole series despite knowing how shitty it is?
>>
>Did you enjoy it though?
eh...I watched for scar-tan mostly.
>>
wut? /a/ loevs busou renkin
>>
I watched it, then I deleted it. And nothing of value was lost.
>>
What the fuck were you expecting? Honestly?

It's entertaining.
>>
What you should have done was read it, while listening to OP theme.
>>
It's awesome BECAUSE it was generic.

Also, it ended.
>>
>What the fuck were you expecting? Honestly?
An ending less retarded than "lets send all the homuncli on to the mother fucking moon."
Jesus. If it at least didn't end like that it wouldn't have been completely retarded.
>>
read a book
>>
>>10175066
I laughed for like the last 2 or 3 episodes all the way through, and you should've too.
>>
>>10174963

Yeah, that was kinda the point of the show.

It's basically Watsuki saying, if you're gonna do shounen do it right.

When I read shounen I expect three things;

1) Mindless Action
2) Hot girls
3) Quirky villains

Busou Renkin wins because it gave me all three things and as a bonus it kept the story short.
>>
>>10175101
No, he already did shounen right, it's called Rurouni Kenshin.
>>
It took everything in a generic shounen and added everything it was LACKING.

Namely: CLOSURE and SERIOUS ROMANCE


The misconception here is that GENERIC SHOUNEN isn't shit, it's just incomplete.
>>
>>10175066

>"lets send all the homuncli on to the mother fucking moon."

That actually sounds fucking awesome.
>>
This is a very good generic shounen.

That pretty much explains its overall mediocre-ness.

I thought the whole "I won't pick one or the other, but both" was good for a shounen, but that idea was lost later.
It also didn't turn into a power-level-fest.
It also ended.

The best generic shounen ever.
Plus, scar-tan was awesome.
>>
>>10174963
>>10174985

Still better than "Bleach" though.
>>
>>10175117
He followed up with Busou Renkin
>>
>>10175132
And it was shit. Really hard to believe they have the same author.
>>
>>10175117

It disappoints me even more when hearing this fact.

Busou Renkin? I liked it better when it was called The Law of Ueki.
>>
Hey, at least he actually gets the girl.

and get this; it ended in 26 EPISODES. No drawn-out bullshit. Thank God.

Also, MAKKA NA CHIKAIIIIIIIIIIII

I enjoyed the show. It was worth my time.

Actually, I think Kobu was a fan of Busou Renkin himself.
Sadly these negative reviews probably crushed the last of Watsuki's self-esteem and has since blocked him from making another full length series.
Fuck, Bravo was awesome, Papillon was awesome, Tokiko was awesome, hell, even Kazuki was awesome!
>>
>>10175173
Yeah, it was.
>>
>>10175157
No, it wasn't.
>>
>>10175186
This fanart is win. Got any more?
>>
>>10175157

Ruruouni Kenshin was serious shounen.

Busou Renkin was crack.

I don't see how you can compare the two.
>>
>>10175189
Not really my problem if you thought it was shit.
>>
>>10175186
IIRC he already started another series called Embalming. It's monthly. Besides, after RK, his only good shit was the wild west series.
>>
>>10175186
The characters were awesome. The plot, and ending wasn't.
>>
>>10175212

Kazuki was the best male lead to come out in a long time. Papillion was the best villain to come out in a long time. The best thing about these two was the fact that they didn't spend a good portion of the series being emo.
>>
People take themselves too seriously. If you already don't like shounen, why the fuck are you watching a shounen series and then complaining about how shounen it is? The mind reels.

Shounen Jump action shounen? Probably.
Just plain shounen? Not quite?

I still really like Busou Renkin, though. It doesn't excel in the originality department, but everything everyone above me has mentioned is what makes it so much more entertaining than its fellow Jump counterparts.

Unfortunately I don't know, I saw this pic posted here a few days ago.

OP here. I just realized I posted the wrong pic in the first post. What I meant to post was this. Sorry for the confusion. I'm not very good a trolling.
>>
>>10175458

Busou Renkin doujins are some of the few doujins I can't fap to. Mostly because Tokiko reminds me of my aunt and fapping to her makes me uncomfortable.

Fuuck rapidshit that doujin!

Anyone have english doujinshi of scar-tan?
>>
>>10175727
Technically, I do, but it's more like there's no dialogue, there's only one spoken word in it. "No Punchline."
>>
>>10175368
So how this and is there translated scans yet?
