Manga should switch from a weekly/monthly type of thing to just releasing the tankobons exclusively.
It'd discourage filler, dragging out the story etc. and mean we'd never be left in the lurch or waiting a year for the next chapter again.
>or waiting a year for the next chapter again.
How long do you think it would take them to make the tankobon?
>How long do you think it would take them to make the tankobon?
About the same time as writing a book, so anywhere between 1 year to 3 years for let's say, a 10 volume series. They'd be forced to cut out all the fluff this way, so a manga like Bleach, wouldn't be as long as it is.
Mangas "like Bleach" wouldn't exist without the current format. Basically you don't understand how the manga industry works and need to go educate yourself before posting threads like this. Which is definitely going to happen.
I think it would be better for some anime say an example being the Fate Stay Night remake each episode being 40-45 minutes like how a typical American and HBO runs for. Cute girls doing cute things anime can just stay the usual 20 minutes it is since it doesn't need to go further than that.
Manga is low-brow entertainment that relies on drawing the reader in with "I wonder what's going to happen next". If you released a common series all at once the audience would judge it on its actual merits as opposed to a biased view warped by years of a sense of knowing these characters. Why do you think obsessive attachment to particular characters is almost exclusively limited to episodic works? The way you follow a long-running series strongly resembles the way you meet and get to know people in real life. It's a flawless illusion that allows even mediocre or bad writing to affect you emotionally, whereas a good 90 minutes movie needs to put huge effort into making you care about what's happening before it's over.
>Mangas "like Bleach" wouldn't exist without the current format.
You say that like it would be a bad thing anon.
That's what marvel and DC did
it was the beginning of the end for them
That would be a horrible idea. It'd basically destroy the industry and stifle creativity.
Since riskier manga can just be produced alongside more popular manga. If the industry does your idea the latter would be the only manga being made.
No. This is how /co/ fell.
>series for children going away is a good thing
People don't start watching TV with The Wire or reading with War & Peace.
It is. I enjoy reading Bleach. No one who doesn't enjoy it needs to read it. If you get angry about the fact that things you don't like continue to exist, I don't think silly mango is the place to start. That just reveals your small-mindedness. I'm long past the age where I felt the need to validate my own intelligence by only associating with things I perceived as intelligent, but most people eventually get there.
Stop reading shitty shounen action manga then.
That's just stupid
Because manga series are published in magazines with more popular works the mangaka can experiment all they want to and the publishers can easily fall back on their popular series if the manga doesn't get money. Your "90 movies" are the main reason why Hollywood is so bloated and stagnant. They can ONLY really green-light movies they believe would be good at the box-office.
>How to destroy manga: the thread
Where did you copy and paste this from? Or did you waste your time actually coming up with all that bullshit? Either way, 5/10, I read it, and was slightly upset, but I will forget about this post after I am done responding - not very effective or memorable bait, I have to say. Oh well, at least you tried. Though maybe you could post something that isn't fabricated entirely out of your or somebody else's ass next time.
Instead manga "like Naruto" would be the only ones being made.
But hey at least it won't have filler.
>The way you follow a long-running series strongly resembles the way you meet and get to know people in real life.
Because as everyone knows, human interaction is a bad thing.
I guess it's slightly amusing to see you react so defensively when what I said wasn't even meant in a negative way. I'm just marvelling at the entertainment machine Japan built and the steady stream of enjoyment it brings to me, but it says a lot about your insecure mentality that you perceive low-brow entertainment as inherently bad. And who said anything about Hollywood? Haha.
What are you even trying to say? It just means it's effective because it mimics something we enjoy instinctively.
Truth, how many series start off so good and then run longer than they should, inevitably turning shitty. I agree that we wouldn't have to deal with that if they released them all at once.
Hollywood is one of the examples of OP's suggested system failing miserably that exclusively applies to movies.
Though it will probably end up like cape comics though.
If you had called anime "low brow entertainment" I would have agreed with you, because legitimately good anime are far and in between, though I enjoy it all the same. Calling manga, a much larger, more diverse, less restricted medium all low brow entertainment is complete bullshit. Battle shounen are not representative of manga as a whole. There are quite a large amount of manga that are legitimately great by any standards - to generalize manga like you did only makes you seem uneducated and obnoxious.
Are you talking about manga or western tv? Since that description applies more to the latter.
I was talking about manga but it also applies to western tv as well.
entertainment can be legitimately great and low-brow at the same time.
But manga isn't low-brow though.
Not him but most of it is. Any series with fanservice is pretty much inherently low brow.
In both cases some endings may be problematic but compared to all the good works being made it more than makes up for it. Are you willing to stamp down creativity just so you can have a happy ending in a few of your series?
OP's complaints about filler kinda only applies to battle shounen and of them it really only applies to Jump battle shounen, so it's basically less than 1% of the manga being made.
by your definition all mediums (film, books, music, games, comics, etc.) are low-brow since they have works with fanservice in it.
Just because anime is mostly fanservice doesn't mean manga is.
The mediums you listed, none have nearly as common fan service as manga does. Though I'd argue comics and games are low brow as well because of how derivative the stories they tell tend to be.
Most fanservice in manga are usually exclusive to shounen manga which again is not even most of the medium. Shoujo also has fanservice but as much as any female-targeted romance novel.
So yeah all mediums do have as much fanservice as manga (music genres like Heavy Metal, Rock, and Hip Hop are almost nothing but). Or are you implying that Japan is the only country that makes works with fanservice in it?
Yes, there are non-trivial manga, like every other medium. Doesn't mean there's a need to pretend that the overwhelming majority is low-brow trite, guys. It's okay. Embrace your shit taste and live a happy life. Love and peace.
I get the feeling that OP only reads Jump battle shounen.
I mean his only example is Bleach of fuck sakes.
