Just saw deathnote live action, OMG even though its real old WAS AMAZING

I hope they dont kill of L in the second part, I stopped reading the manga for like 6 months after L died



ALSO who watches One Piece-Im up to like episode 37, still it's only average, not as epic as everyone is saying.

Naruto I think did character development better, and One piece seems to childish.

Then again I cant even read Naruto anymore, I think I just have an emotional connection to it for nostalgia purposes


Does one piece get good or is it only good if you have a nostalgic attachment to it?

One piece doesn't ever get much better.

I'm a big death note fan too. There is a third spin off movie btw with L.

it's stupid. Because they made Luffy and Zoro so powerful in the beginning, every single fight they need to get nerfed in some stupid way.

Zoro is always fighting heavily wounded every time, so after defeating the lead badguys henchmen he always falls asleep. Every fight he's like "damn, im only at 50% of my power because of this wound, I can hardly beat these guys"

Luffy always does something retarded to get himself stuck or kicked a million miles away, then comes at the end and one shots the bad guy.

They need to fix this formula soon.
Wondering why this is the most popular manga ever

Itachi is already one of the strongest, and most hax character in the Naruto universe? Izanami aka the De ja Vu Jutsu is one of the coolest techniques in Manga History.

Let's see if Kabuto escapes from this jutsu.

Someone finally subed the Beserk Movie. Although based on the screenshots I've seen I'm not sure I want to watch it, ton of CG used.

yes it does get a lot more exciting, only people who would say it doesn't are the naruto fanboys. it also gets much more mature and the animation improves quite a bit too. overall great plot with lots of comedy and very few plot holes.

Can someone recommend a good hardboiled/crime/detective manga? My searches on my own have come up empty.

Read around 70 chapters the whole weekend to catch up to One Piece. Didn't really enjoy the Fishman island series. Gets better though when they get above the sea

Uh, that's what most action packed manga have. Just about every character gets stronger as time progresses. If the characters get weaker, I doubt the manga would be as popular, unless the characters find interesting ways to adapt to their misfortunes.

you my friend are wrong, characters increasing in strength does not decide whether a manga is good or bad, things like good plot,interesting fight scenes, no ass-pulls, and lack of plot holes make a manga good and naruto is full of plot holes and a shit ton of asspulls especially with the sharingan b.s.

Yes, in the dramas you often see slam dunk mentioned, or a female character will read it. it's really popular among women of my wife's generation. She personally loves it, we have every volume.
