Guys I would like to hear your thoughts on American / western comic cultivation vs Japanese Manga development
For the most part it seems like the comic industry is ruled by the two powerhouse companies DC & Marvel and as such have a core focus of very well known and familiar characters which have been written and re-written over decades in many variations
Manga titles on the other hand seem to be of a more singular fashion with franchises going through fewer hands and less incarnations, leading to a more linear overall story structure.
Personally I do not prefer one type over the other and enjoy the creative differences in both, question is how do you guys feel about it….do you think maybe western comics are a little bit over-focused on the BIG TWO lol opposed to manga which “seem” to be more varied
And just for fun as it is sorta related GOKU VS SUPERMAN – who wins and why (just for fun) – check out the upcoming DEATHBATTLE for that VS matchup btw
Sometimes people complain about some anime series because a lot of characters look almost the same or because of the lack of creative character designs, however some anime series have a huge variety of characters that involve: different body proportions, different races/species, different costumes, different themes, etc.
So, here is my question, which anime series do you think have the most interesting/creative character designs?
Topic: Anime Censorship vs. Availability
Clarification: Being able to see some Anime requires censored edits of scenes or images when provided by certain media services. Would you prefer the censored Anime because of its availability, or wait until an original unedited version becomes available, which in some countries could be next to never?
Seeing how Anime Vice has a rather expansive wiki database. is there any page on the site that you've particularly enjoyed or thought helpful? Also, is there any page of the site that you wish had more work done to it?
With you enjoying ONE PIECE recently, have you thought about checking out the manga and seeing how that is paced in comparison to the anime? The series in the US is about a year behind where it in in Japan. Where Tom jumped on with the more recent episodes of the anime is Volume 65.
Have you watched any anime that takes its cues from literature? Which ones worked/didn't work for you? I don't mean a basic 1:1 adaptation of a book, but I'm talking about anime that reference literature and make a few allusions to it. Here are some I know of:
Puella Magi Madoka Magika (Faust)
Neon Genesis Evangelion (The Bible)
Romeo X Juliet (Romeo and Juliet)
Blast of Tempest (Hamlet, and other Shakespeare works)
Flowers of Evil (Baudelaire's Flowers of Evil)
