So with naruto ending and bleach being horrible garbage that only plebs like, Is this the new big four?
Attack on Titan
>In relation to any of those 4
Naruto is actually decent compared to those piece of shit mangas.
I can't argue that, especially with the latest arc. I very much like the characters, the atmosphere, the themes, and the action, though. I can't say the same for Naruto at all.
Naruto ended on a decent note. I felt like the ending actually redeemed a lot of shit.
I'll give you One Piece, it hasn't gone to complete shit yet, but the other three did, and there's no way in hell they will get a good ending like Naruto did. At best they will end like Claymore.
>He thinks One Piece is bad
ok scrub, go watch your daily dose of moe shit!
>Oh no, I'm losing to the big bad mage group we're fighting this time around!
>I'll use "That"
>The power of friendship will save me
>Fanservice for the next half of the chapter
Yeah, it's totally great...
Read it up to the beginning of Skypia. Its generic trash. All it has is Arlong Park, and that was short. At least the utter garbage Naruto has its beginning arc to gloat about. One Piece is just mediocrity.
Why does there need to be a big three?
The big three were called that not because shounen jump gives something special to the top three manga that the fourth doesn't get, but because in terms of popularity three series stood well ahead of any other titles it ran.
That situation no longer seems to apply - Naruto's over, Bleach's readership has plummeted, and there aren't two new titles that slot into their roles, but a bunch of modestly popular ones. So we don't see a new term replace it.
The "big 3" refers to the most popular series in WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP, its not that hard to understand. attack on titan and fairy tail are not from WEEKLY SHOUNEN JUMP so no, you fucking retard.
It's just made in china quality trolling
Why the fuck isn't JoJo uin this list?
No. I already read 20 something volumes of this, that's more than enough for me. Sorry, but I don't care about "when it gets real guud" anymore. I was already tricked with Alaslowsta. Doesn't help that the fight scenes look like a bigger mess than JoJo's, though that's probably just shit scans.
Here's a question for you: are you assuming "Big 3" means "quality"?
SnK is incredibly fucking popular, at the very least. It's a flagship title, which I think is what "Big 3" really means.
No you retard.
Toriko will never be a big hit no matter how much WSJ tries to force it.
And One Piece revenue is nosediving.
Yeah but Naruto had enough characters and plot points to survive the long run, Kishi did a great job.
SnK doesn't have the same luxury. Most characters are either dead or are too bland.
I fought it offenseive as hell they allowed Toriko to hang with Luffy and Goku in combat even if he's already surprised Luffy's power now Toriko is a young series that isn't really popular because buff dudes being manly men isn't something japan is into AND on top of that it's a fucking sausage party. Even dragonball has a few bangable girls in it Toriko doesn't even have one.
It really didn't. It was forced to continue. The entire second half is garbage.
But of course SnK won't run as long as Naruto. That shit had like 70 volumes. Bleach is also around 70. When Dragon Ball ended with 40 despite being forced to continue for two arcs.
SNK characters are geerally more one dimenisional than NNaruto's which is saying something. Eren is angry and wants to kill all the titans but sucks too muh to achieve shit. Mikasa is competent but has a one track that revolves only around eren so far, Levi is competent but doesn't think for himself and so on. Naruto suffers from this as well but having gone on as long as it has the characters have changed since the very first chapter many for the worst but a change none the less.
The biggest issue for SNK is that MC's do jack shit in the grand scheme of things. Think about the last notable thing Eren has done for example... yeah
I think Toei kind of butchered its reputation with the ridiculous censoring and merchandise filler.
It's the usual shonenshit-invented-on-the-go powers.
Some dudes have brute force and can punch so hard, the shockwave kills you. Others have poison, others use electricity, etcetc.
The thing is the power scalling is so ridiculous they jump from being able to break a wall, to being to break a fucking montain in just a single arc.
Now they're punching the entire planet, who is already bigger than ours by quite a lot.
It's the worse manga I've ever read in my entire life to be honest, even Fairy Tail is more entertaining.
They have a thing called gourmet cells who give different powers, like Paramecia fruits in One Piece, and when they eat food of great quality,they gourmets cells get stronger.
At present they're trying to push past Goku kind of. It takes over the top well... over the top, no apologies, you either love it or hate it I suppose.
And sometimes its not so much fighting as just being absolutely ridiculous.
>SNK characters are geerally more one dimenisional than NNaruto's
They really, seriously aren't. If you want to trivialize them entirely into two things each you can, but very few of the characters are legitimately that simple.
Boku no Hero Academia
shokugeki no motherfucking soma
SNK or Tokyo ghoul
>not reading bleach for the fashion
i dont know why /a/ mostly hate one piece ,as a shonen manga its pretty good,the world developpement is superb i love the humor and the whole adventure.
I'm telling you, from an expanded universe point of view? Toriyama did absolutely jack shit with the DB universe. Kubo, Oda and Kishimoto are much better at expanding their universes, hence why their mangas lasted for much longer.
Can't fit, it's seinen.
I mean if it actually magically got as popular as the most popular of shounen manga then sure I'd mention it, but otherwise it's just a really popular seinen manga.
Yes they are in fact it's a very common complaint people have. Try to explain to me what Eren's role is, what Mikasa's role is and what levi's role is etc in several paragraphs without simply recanting events.
It's pretty hard isn't it?
Out of WSJ series, right now Hero Academia is probably the most likely one in the future - it's actually great and selling like hotcakes atm, we'll see if can keep up with it.
NnT would've already taken a spot too, save for not being in WSJ line-up.
i read fairy tail sometimes.....its dbz-tier shit and the power ups doesnt even make sense. can't mashima just sit down for one week and think about his sins?i've read rave
the anime is one piece-tier dont watch thatand it was okay/good i know he have the potential but want to much of that money
i guess when god murata is done with redrawing OP-man he'll save the day with a great writer
>even Fairy Tail is more entertaining.
It is until Natsu or Erza fight in an arc. All of their battles come to hitting the enemy harder while shouting friendship speeches. Erza's gimmick is armor change yet she always goes into big fights and ends them in her non armored flame pants. Mashima's a hack when writing those two and a hack at making any villain a decent threat to Fairy Tail because they always win the same way with the same speech. Nobody would tolorate this manga if it wasn't for how ridiculously hot the girls and guys are. I miss Ultear and her backside.
Why do they need to be described as roles? Furthermore, why do I have to write you an essay?
Eren is wrathful because he desires freedom above all else. He has a strong liking for his friends like any shonen protagonist, and struggles when dealing with any betrayals from them because he likes them THAT MUCH. He also as an inferiority complex which stops him hard from improvement or success 7/10 times.
Mikasa is obsessed with Eren because he is literally the last family she ever had. She has a harsh kill or be killed attitude with the world because of what her biological father told her before he was killed. She's clearly a traumatized individual, as her older self acts far differently from the innocent child she used to be. She also struggles with weakness, particularly since she really SHOULD be better. This has helped her be able to transition from killing titans to being willing to kill humans with ease.
Levi is a very clearly broken and tired man. His affection for his subordinates and comrades is obvious despite how annoyed he always seems. You get the impression that he has been through a lot, and the few times his past has been let on this much is clear. He has no reservations whatsoever turning from titan killing to human killing because he fully understands that it's necessary. While a leader himself, he much prefers to be led because he understands he's best utilized as a weapon. Also, seeing people die while under his command wounds him deep even to this day.
> tfw Fairy Tail hasn't been good ever since the Wendy vs Ezel battle.
>Boku no Hero Academia
sold out in japan
>Boku no Hero Academia
I made a graph based on the reader poll ranking of both BnHA and One Piece. The lower the value, the higher the ranking. I will continue to do so in the following weeks. But there is already a trend emerging...
damn i feel bad for Oda why is he taking some many break?
>watching one piece
ill stick to the manga
>attack on titan
ill give you that i just cant read the manga
reading or watching pretty much the same thing
Fairy Tail is my weekly fap material, but other than that it's predicatble as fuck.
>Their editors must force him to take break.
oh thats one,damn okay well i like one piece so i can wait until
dragon quest take over
after part 6 its seinen so araki can work on his art and on his plot
There is no Big 3.
Anime isn't popular in the US like it was when One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach were younger. Even if Fairy Tail, Toriko, and Attack on Titan are more popular than Naruto and Bleach currently, that popularity is nothing compared to Naruto and Bleach in the Big 3 days.
you know, you can shit all you want on dragonball after the end of the frieza saga. but up until then it was actually good.
it was the android, cell, buu saga shit that was fucking horrible.
its clear toriyama wanted to stop after the namek trip but higher ups convinced him that androids of all things was suppose to be stronger then a space warlord.
oh and everyone that liked GT needs to be put in a mass grave and shot
He actually wanted to end it after gohan turned super sayain 2 and beat cell. Kind of the reason that all throughout the series and up until that point they were talking about Gohan's latent power.
Then timeskip and he goes to school and shit, he's a shit.
There is no big 3 or big 4 or whatever. It's just One Piece and then everything else. And don't even compare Toriko to it. Toriko is so garbage and it's selling terribly despite the fact that Jump is trying so hard to shove it down people's throats. Probably because people realized the author is just jerking it to power level crap.
Are you trying to make out One Piece is on another level on it's own?
If Togashi doesn't take advantage of this to make HxH bigger (or more recognized for it's popularity I should say, since it's already big and has very high sales), I'll be pissed. But it won't happen because he's lazy as fuck and doesn't care about the fans.
Aw fuck, Kishimoto just had to fuck with Anko-sensei.
Nah, needs to be another bunch of hot shot Young Turks.
The fuck is that?
>Attack on Titan
Hot stuff, but not a weekly shounen so it's out.
Well it certainly is shit like Bleach, so that might fit, but it's also not fun like Bleach.
Hunter x Hunter could easily make it to the top. Just fucking make Togashi work.
DESTROY DRAGON QUEST.
Hunter X Hunter
It's practically only One Piece now
Hopefully Kubo continues Zombie Powder again and maybe we can have Bleach beta
I have no idea how or why Toriko is still going but then Hitman Reborn is a thing too
I look forward to new series trying to fit the vacuum
>yfw he finish dark continent but then :
is it me or murata art look like an actually upgrated version of toriyama?
>Well it certainly is shit like Bleach, so that might fit, but it's also not fun like Bleach.
It's basically One Piece but with the same Rave Master art and humor, so chances of it living with a Western audience are plausibly but very unlikely.
>And One Piece revenue is nosediving.
No it isn't. Thanks to Oda's illness and surgery One Piece only released one volume in that period, while each of the other top six in that period released two volumes.
If you look at the sales per volume One Piece is doing as well as ever, and is still at the top.
That said, SnK is doing incredibly well.
>huge SnK fan
>keep it to myself
>get shat on by a for liking it all the
>Erza's gimmick is armor change yet she always goes into big fights and ends them in her non armored flame pants
Yeah that shit is horrible. It was okay the first time but then it just became shit after he overused it.
Just five series listed that haven't gotten TV adaptions yet. What are chances of them getting anime?
Shokugeki no Soma. Anime announced a week ago, comes out next year.
HiatusXHiatus will never be top anything. Popularity is one thing, but the breaks kill it.
Naruto started a year after it and just finished with nearly double the chapters
Why hasn't Golgo 13 been considered part of the big 3 again? It's been running since 1968 with 174 volumes to its name and it's the third best selling manga of all time after One Piece and Dragonball Z.
Naruto shouldn't even be considered part of the big 3.
Because it's not shounen
And 'the big three' just refers to the big three manga that saved shounen jump after dragonball ended. It isn't some annual position that gets replaced.
