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.)
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?
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
I laughed for like the last 2 or 3 episodes all the way through, and you should've too.
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.
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.
>"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.
Still better than "Bleach" though.
He followed up with Busou Renkin
And it was shit. Really hard to believe they have the same author.
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!
Yeah, it was.
No, it wasn't.
This fanart is win. Got any more?
Ruruouni Kenshin was serious shounen.
Busou Renkin was crack.
I don't see how you can compare the two.
Not really my problem if you thought it was shit.
IIRC he already started another series called Embalming. It's monthly. Besides, after RK, his only good shit was the wild west series.
The characters were awesome. The plot, and ending wasn't.
Not really my problem if you thought it wasn't shit.
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.
goddamn bravo is manly
If you don't like /a/, why are you here? It's fucking human nature.
FABULOUS >>>>>>>>>>>>>> emo
Out of what? Shounen?
PAPIL ~ LON
moar like FAPulous amirite?
Fuck yes, you are the best mentor character ever.
Ya'll got trolled. Hard.
Trolled? All you did was post the truth. It sucked.
Pappi is my hero!
It's over, dude. We all know how Busou Renkin is the awesomest shounen in the last 5 years.
I doesn't matter what you said or what you meant.
This is now a Tokiko appreciation thread.
Nicely done OP, I offer you promotional image in salute.
OP here. That is not OP. GTFO faggot.
I think there was a Bleach thread in page 5, why don't you try trolling there. We're already done here. Move along.
Please tell me that's on rapidsearch or fakku.
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.
What a sexy look on her face
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.
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.
OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAND
Fuuck rapidshit that doujin!
Anyone have english doujinshi of scar-tan?
Technically, I do, but it's more like there's no dialogue, there's only one spoken word in it. "No Punchline."
So how this and is there translated scans yet?
IMA WA WAKARANAI KOTO BAKARI DAKEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
