I've seen /tg/ approved vidya, movies, literature, and music. And these made me curious; what are /tg/'s favored manga/anime?

Pic related, seems like it'd be one.

>> No.21303456

Underwater Ray Romano and Scrapped Princess tend to come up every time in fantasy anime threads
Gundam is fairly popular, and to a somewhat lesser extent all giant robots
Nyaruko had a strong presence on /tg/ while it was airing, much to some people's chagrin
Magical Burst is popular here, so Madoka should by extension be included

almost anything, really, is potential /tg/ material; I'm working (and I use the term working loosely, in that I am not explicitly not working on it) on an [email protected]/AKB0048 themed game, and [email protected] got mentioned occasionally while it was airing a year ago as well, with some people throwing around ideas for an idol-training simulation game that never went anywhere, as far as I know

Did it really? Because the Slayers anime was basically a complete retelling of the writer's D&D campaign.

"Hey! Hey you! The fourteen-year-old nerdy kid who's pissed at the world! Yes. People suck. We hurt each other, whether we mean to or not. That's just the way it goes. Butthat RISK of being hurt, that chance that it could explode in your face, THAT is what makes it worth it. It's what gives meaning to the happiness we make for ourselves, and the love we manage to find, in this shitty dungheap of a world, meaningful and valuable. So stop fucking bitching, get out there, and take some risks! That girl you think doesn't even know you're alive? Maybe she likes you and is just waiting for YOU to make a move. So get off your ass, go out there, and DO IT FAGGOT!"
TTGL on the other hand is just blowing shit up fun, with a bit of "Have some fucking balls and DO IT FAGGOT!"

Actually, a LOT of Gainax shows boil down to "DO IT FAGGOT!" as part of any "meaning" they have if they have one. Maybe because it's what the guys there would say to their younger selves if they had the chance.

Nausicaä has the best and most thought out setting in any manga I have read. I think that most manga suffer from the fact that the writer of the series has rarely designed the setting properly before starting to write the story, and then the fictional world just expands and expands as the story goes. The characters never seem to visit the same places two times and the places feel more like stages or scenes for things to happen rather than actual places in an actual, living world.

But in Nausicaä things seem to work and the world seems very lively. The manga is also about 12452 times better than the movie.

The manga, if you can find it, is well worth checking out. As are the other two life action movies based on the universe, Stay Dog and Red Spectacles.

Yes. The jump was weird, but it manages to keep up an interesting story throughout the series, in my opinion

>> No.21306488

Yeah, it was meant to be sudden so that there would be some mystery in figuring out what happened at the climax. For the most part it only gets better from there on out (even though I don't really like one of the new characters they introduce, but that would be spoilers).

>> No.21306490

I found it incredibly annoying how the writer ends almost every single chapter in a cliffhanger and then moves to another sidestory in the next. It's a good way to increase excitement for a couple of times, but when you see it the hundreth time in a single series it just gets really old.

Continuing on is Nadia The Secret of Blue Water. Loosely based on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and paying homage to other works by Jules Verne it's a new and unusual but still worthwhile take on Verne's character of Captain Nemo. The titular Nadia is Nemo's long lost daughter who chances upon the Nautilus with the help of a French boy genius named Jean. There they join Nemo in his crusade to save the world from the evil Neo Atlantians. It's got a fabulous cast of characters and a wonderfully steam-punky setting. It does suffer from poor quality filler that was outsourced to Korea, so the episodes on the island and the African village get pretty bad. Still it comes back strong with a wonderful conclusion and is still well worth the 63gigs the BD rips take up.

Just be sure to watch the original series first, then End of Evangelion then the Rebuild movies if you want to see the remakes or possibly sequels.

>usable on actual APCs/AFVs
Actually, it doesn't see that use anymore. Anti-materiel rifles are no longer all that effective due to the fact that modern armor is massively better than what was in use when they earned their names. Now if one were to use a SLAP (Saboted Light Armor Penetrator) round you could do it, but the odds of the Lagoon Company, with their constantly strapped for cash status, HAVING a magazine of SLAP rounds on hand is unlikely.

I admit it might seem confusing, because there are like at least two distinct Titan factions and a whole bunch of human ones and new mysteries *are* continually introduced, but old mysteries also *do* get resolved. I think it's a pretty well put together series ("best foreshadowing I have ever seen" is a bit of an exaggeration though).

Thanks for recommending it.
The next series on my to-read list are Biscuit Hammer, 20th Century Boys, and Golden Boy.
I think I could get used to this manga stuff.

I've actually started getting into korean manwha would you like to suggest a few?

>any spoilers yet?
Go watch the Golden Boy OVA's instead. The Golden Boy manga becomes REALLY weird towards the end.

Not the same guy, but I've been reading a manwha called Magican.

There's literally only a handful of good manwha out there, but you should check out Ares for a good read.

Geneshaft: It has flying mechs, planet busting guns, human sacrifice near the end
Silent Mobius: Cyborgs, big guns, magic, daemons, blood pacts, someone who is basically an Arch Tech Magos

What's not to like?

Throwing my vote behind Drifters, Biscuit Hammer, Blame!, Berserk and Black Lagoon as all being incredible.

Battle Angel Alita, Mushishi, Fullmetal Alchemist and Vinland Saga (omake related) are also utterly fantastic.

As for honorable mentions: Hunter X Hunter is an awesome take on a modern-day world where people can reach level 20, and Ubel Blatt is dark fantasy Code Geass with a more coherent & effective story (but still plenty of weird taste, so maybe read yourself before recommending to a friend).
