    Are you guys as pumped as I am for Vegeta's new God of Destruction form? Glad to see him finally going his own way vs being a step behind Goku, glad he didn't get UI

    I feel Billy Bat wore out its welcome. I never finished it. After
    they killed the main character and shifted to this other kid
    I just couldn't care anymore. I thought we were finally headed to a conclusion at that point, but nope, it kept on meandering. By that point all the mystery was gone and I didn't care how it ended. Cared so little I never even looked up the ending after it was finished.

    I'm probably the odd man out here, but I don't think I'd actively recommend a single one of Urasawa's works, and I've tried most of them. Great artist, very expressive and unique style, but the storytelling always ends up falling flat for me. Pluto is the only one of his series I've managed to read the whole way through and it's ending was so unsatisfying I don't even remember it.

    I believe that was done to keep in line with the conspiracy spanning all known history. It can't just all of a sudden stop, it has to go on with another, just as it did in the beginning chapters. 20th Century Boys was his other conspiracy manga, I enjoyed that as well. I did enjoy Pluto, it reminded be of Asimov's Robot novels.

    Monster was another great detective manga by Urasawa, surprised you didn't find that enjoyable JB.

    WTF don't spoil it! Damn it they just need to restart the anime series again. Shouldn't they have enough content by now? I don't mind some canon filler mixed in it too.

    I, in general, do not care for the suspense/mystery/crime/whodunit genre, regardless of medium. I have a limited amount of fucks to give, and simply cannot maintain interest in a mystery that's drawn out for 50+ chapters with little to no reveals or explanation along the way. After a while it becomes obvious the payoff cannot possibly live up to the time it takes to get there.

    Shaman King in the top 5? That's got to be a nostalgia vote, right? Like, it was one of the first series you read and holds a special place in your heart?

    I'm excited to see where they go with it, but I don't get why he had to lose his eyebrows? There are Gods of Destruction with eyebrows.

    i'm actually reading domestic girlfriend under a theory that it might be the most misunderstood manga/anime of our era.

    Just read it on my Break, another good Chapter. Mu- Wons supporting cast is formidable and is going to make him chasing his Goals Interesting.

    I have to wonder what the end game will be for Goku and Vegeta. They're already on track to be equal (if not already) stronger than the weakest GoDs. Will they eventually reach the levels of the Angel's? Possibly even Zenos guards or his prime Angel buddy?

    Just speculation on my part but if Goku and Vegeta fused now the resulting Vegeto/Gogeta form would have both the Angelic UI from Goku and the Ultimate Hakai GoD attacks from Vegeta, that possible could rival weaker Angels
