I haven't read tower of god in a minute. I got to like where there was some team fighting thing going on, and the op chick was watching them fight, and there I think was something about a train that took them there? it's been a while lolAnyone else in here read Tower of God?
I've been following this manwha for a solid 2 years now. I don't really watch anime anymore and the only thing I read is One Piece (or at least I'm trying to, I'm at Fishman Island arc right now but its slow af so school and Criminal Minds has taken up a majority of my time), but I still make sure to read the Tower of God releases. It releases every Sunday / Monday at midnight EST, and is quite a ride. It can be a little confusing I guess, as since its a manwha it doesn't really follow much conventionally and some of the jokes and stuff go over the head of a normal reader. It's premise is that in some universe, there is a tower. This tower has 130+ floors to it, where people can climb to achieve their wildest dreams. As a result it attracts a ton of competition of people looking to climb to the top and become a "Ranker" (person who completed the tower). The catch is, only those born in the tower, called "Regulars," can climb it. The main character, Twenty-fifth Baam, is what is referred to as an "Irregular," that is someone who comes from outside the tower. He basically forced his way into the tower, a feat almost unheard of and to the residents of the tower speaks of ill omens, as every other Irregular that has climbed the tower has been immensely powerful and changed the tower in dangerous and intriguing ways. The worldbuilding that the author has is INCREDIBLE. I think maybe only like HxH or One Piece have built up a world as fantastic as this one, as I'm about 400 chapters in and still there are tons of proposed questions that need answered. The fighting system can be a little complicated but its just like manipulating chakra, or haki, or whatever, sometimes swordplay and sometimes a more magic based system.
Anyone else read this and want to discuss it at all?
Also I was wondering if someone could point me to when One Piece gets good again? the war arc was inSANE and i loved it but after the timeskip it REALLY slowed down. Does it get much better and if so what arcs are on par with that form of buildup?
I googled stuff and apparently I was like at part 2 of the dallar show, so that's like...120-130 chapters behind? That's a lot less than I thought.I STRONGLY recommend you guys pick it back up. if you were invested into it back when the art style and plot direction has amped up tenfold. There are some slow arcs, the Hell Train arc (which I think is what you are referencing, with the big enemy of that time being a Slayer candidate called White) is a slow one. Theyve technically been on the hell train for a solid 150+ chapters now I believe but man has it been a ride. I won’t give spoilers as to whats happening but I’ll say that Jahad’s face has finally been shown as well as his uhh capabilities. Again I STRONGLY recommend people pick it back up. This is one story that I hope the author finishes, his health has been failing it seems and he has had to take more and more breaks. In fact I sense a hiatus coming up soon which gives anyone the time to catch up to the 400+ chapters.
To newer users dont be put off by the crude art in the beginning. it gets wayyyyy better
hoooooly shit it is so worth it to catch up. the buildup of the last 3 chapters is crazy hype. I’ve never been this gripped for next week’s chapter.I googled stuff and apparently I was like at part 2 of the dallar show, so that's like...120-130 chapters behind? That's a lot less than I thought.
Not sure who told you season 2 is way better. It might be better. I dunno. It tells different stories. I for one was sad about a story arc from the first season that didn't appear in the second one. Basically what I'm saying is there's no reason to up your expectations, it's about the same level of quality, which is to say very high.3-Gatsu no Lion is the first "top" MAL show to validate the list. It is really very excellent. And usually in trying to watch stuff, starting at the beginning, I'm not even watching the "good" season. But this time, not even watching the good season takes a whole new meaning. I'm excited to watch season 2 if it's really so much better.
Mushishi is a treasure.Next month:
MAL (and probably similar sites) have a bias towards later season of things, since people who didn't like the first season will usually not continue on to the second season and so on. Pretty much everyone I've talked to likes the second season of Code Geass less than the first but it's rated higher there. On the other hand, Nisemonogatari is iirc actually rated significantly lower than Bakemonogatari, which really says something about it even if Kaiki is one of the best characters in anything ever. Second Season (by which I mean the season labelled second season, not the actual second season) is where the series really hits its stride and becomes something special, it does a very good job at building on characters and plots it's already established and creating stories that are outwardly very fantastical but always rooted in realistic issues.3-Gatsu no Lion is the first "top" MAL show to validate the list.

I wasn't impressed at first as the show switched between brooding scenes and spastic comedy scenes, but around episodes 5-10 it really picked its game up. I can safely say that it's a rare anime that gives me the things I enjoy from reading classic lit, but unlike LotGH, it's also very well animated. I'm not immediately impressed by the painterly backgrounds, but whenever there is exposition or dialogue, something creative is always happening on screen. A show about a child genius becoming a shogi professional in high school should not be real at all, let alone this real. It's an excellent discussion about how some people get consumed by the things they have expertise in. The only downside is that it doesn't really climax, probably as a result of adapting a long manga into a multi-cour format. Extremely high recommendation.
Bakemonogatari is a golden turd. It's very watchable and everything about it is very well done. The animation is top-notch. The soundtrack is fire. The dialogue is well written and very clever. Too clever, too often. The script is too busy Whedoning that no character actually has any personality. It likes to tell us every episode that one character is Tsundere, which would be a poor replacement for character development even if it was true (it's not). And because the first 15 episodes are all about "establishing characters", it feels like 15 fairly pointless episodes. Still, I'm curious where it will go once there's actually a plot. Also, I was really hoping the show would cross the line from perversion into eroticism, but instead what I got was jokes about sexually assaulting elementary schoolers.
