So, I´ve been trying to get into Gintama for years and just recently I talked about it with my girlfriend who, yet again, told me that I´m missing out by not reading it, so I read into the newest chapters and they did seem pretty damn neat.

But everytime I start reading from the beginning, I can´t really get into reading further then some chapters because I´m missing the ongoing storyline...

My question being: How long does it take until a on-going story comes up?

Gintama: How long does it take until the manga kicks in with a ongoing, more serious storyline, like I saw in the newest chapter, because I like the newer stuff, but can´t really dig the beginning of the manga, where everything is so joke-y and unrelated.
User avatar #1111629 to #1111626 - yeorgh ONLINE (02/01/2015) [-]
Serious arcs come and go, there's usually 3 or 5 chapters of serious stuff and then joke chapters again, just gotta read everything.
User avatar #1111631 to #1111629 - ljxjlos (02/01/2015) [-]
Ah, okay - damn, I thought the complete serious would take a more serious turn at some point.

Thanks either way.

It's mainly a comedy, even the serious parts have comedy, like the latest chapters where they beat each other up with dialogue boxes.
User avatar #1111637 to #1111635 - ljxjlos (02/01/2015) [-]
Yeah, that´s what I did like, the serious plot, but executed with comedy, I just don´t really like the purely comedic chapters.

Boom. Game time.

Pick any one of them to come into your life and immediatly become your best mate for life, Will be with you for as long as you want. They will form relationships with your friends/family too outside of your control. Who would you pick and why?

Rules:
1. You cannot be in any kind of sexual/romantic relationship. Just best mates.
2. They will share all of your interests. e.g. sports, anime, vidya, home decoration
3. They all still have their good sides and bad e.g. Masato will motivate you to get fit and keep your life together but is incredibly stupid, Kengo will give you pently of personal time but may seem distant and cold etc.

Characters are from Little Busters in case anyone doesn't recognise it

Obviously guy in top right. I like to imagine he's called Andrew, or maybe Kevin. I feel like he would guide me through the rough patches in my life, all the while ensuring my personal style never dropped below exceptional standards. He would be distant at times, but he's an artistic soul, and I would be something of a rock for him, while he would be my flight of fancy. Despite our differences in outward personas we would always find time for each other, often just talking, long into the night. At some point in our relationship, he will make a slightly off colour comment about people of a certain race or creed, and after weeks of soul searching, I will help mend whatever past trauma caused this chip on his shoulder. In the process, we make a new friend of said colour or creed, and though he will never become as close as we are, he will be a valued friend, until some personal tragedy takes him from our lives forever. Though this is traumatic for the both of us, it only cements our bond, and in the grieving process, I come to know his family, and they accept me as one of their own. Just kidding, he looks like some Kenpachi-rama-san level bullshit. Man, I should write some Josei.

Let's get serious /anime/
Anime is seen as entertainment at face value and pretty much that's all it is . But, one idea that has been added over the years is "fan-pandering." It's a typical used method to please fans instead of sticking to story guidelines. Do you guys believe fan-pandering is good or bad? Pls Respond.
User avatar #1111709 to #1111443 - unikornking ONLINE (02/01/2015) [-]
The only "fan-pandering" I genuinely hated were the nudity shots from the Black Lagoon OVA
User avatar #1111695 to #1111443 - bababadsheep (02/01/2015) [-]
Gunbuster isn't Gunbuster without the innovation of tit physics. All that matters is that you have an actual plot and any lewd shots make sense and aren't obviously shoehorned in.
User avatar #1111677 to #1111443 - TheMather ONLINE (02/01/2015) [-]
Depends on the type. Excessive nudity/groping is just plain annoying, as is idol bullshit.
But trope lampshading, genre savvy characters, references to other works, extremely competent main characters and genius bonuses are all also forms of fan-pandering, and can have a huge bonus on how enjoyable a work is.
User avatar #1111678 to #1111677 - qwertyjr (02/01/2015) [-]

Occasionally is fine, sex jokes can be funny. But when its nothing but sex jokes or full of panty shots it starts being lazy and cheap. Why some people praise them so much I dont know. Oh you fapped twice to one of the episodes? Guess what else you can fap to? ~Hentai~.

User avatar #1111570 to #1111443 - DmOnZ (01/31/2015) [-]
It's horse shit. Practically every show does it now. You can't get a good fucking series without some bullshit beach episode or some retarded model/photoshoot/fashion show scene. Not only that, but if the series is relatively serious it takes away all build up of atmosphere in exchange for some cheap half chubs and bloody noses.

Now, if they put fan service into an OVA, that's different. But I'm talking about having those episodes/scenes half through a series. And it's gotten worse too. It used to be only one episode a series, now you can get two or three.
User avatar #1111581 to #1111570 - qwertyjr (02/01/2015) [-]

It sounds elitist, but it's gotten to the point that I'll drop a series with serious themes if they put a single fan service episode in. Contrary to popular belief, bending to the whim and will of your fans is not what makes good entertainment media.

Let me be honest here, I like me the odd ecchi anime. Highschool dxd was awesome but that's cause I went into it knowing full well what to expect. Now, whenever I manage to find an anime that DOESN'T actually have fanservice, I consider it such a fucking gem. There's nothing I hate more than having a good serious anime with loads of drama and then out of nowhere comes a beach episode with more boob jiggle than waves.

Ecchi animes can be good for a break between the serious ones, But now that a majority of the anime that comes out is either ecchi or very close to it, it just makes actually finding an anime where animation costs didn't go into fanservice all the harder. Fanservice is quickly becoming a pretty big turn off for most people watching anime and is one of the reasons it's actually embarrassing to discuss anime with people who don't watch a lot of it. Most of the time I can ignore it, But I wouldn't be surprised in a couple years if it gets to the point where no serious/dramatic/action anime come out and it all becomes a big fanservicing, tit-jiggling, panty showing mess
User avatar #1111526 to #1111516 - qwertyjr (01/31/2015) [-]
I don't mind ecchi anime if that's what the anime centers around from the beginning
But when ecchi plots start occurring mid way thru the series, it ruins anime
Also, when anime becomes saturated with one style it becomes bland and less entertaining. The fans should be supporting anime that sticks to it's roots and brings different styles to the industry.
User avatar #1111534 to #1111526 - pirgh (01/31/2015) [-]
I actually appear to be pretty lucky, I can tolerate the fan service showing up mid-series and still enjoy the series quite a bit. For the most part though, it seems a lot of users can't stand it and dubs any anime like that as "shit" Which is fair enough, We all have our pet peeves that ruin an anime. For me it's beta as fuck protagonists. For example, I loved everything about Maria Nikki except Yuuki. I ended up not enjoying any moment of that anime where I had to put up with him and I feel that for most people on the board, any kind of harem/ecchi moments spoil a whole anime for them too.
User avatar #1111537 to #1111534 - qwertyjr (01/31/2015) [-]

I'm just sad that it's become the popular way to make stuff sell. Instead of having good characters, thought provoking plot, and/or nice animation they take it upon themselves to plaster tits and panty shots everywhere indiscriminately because that's what sells nowadays. But cpt makes a real good point whether or not it's trying to be serious while having fan service as well. Don't get me wrong, I love butts more than the next man but too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing.

You say that like any amount of BDs the west buys will have any impact on whatever the japs do.

Fan-pandering ruins anime for the most part
sometimes Fan-pandering is good. Rarely. Like Mabuharo got extra episodes because people wanted the series to go on.
Then again, fan-pandering brings Ecchi shit to good anime plots
User avatar #1111455 to #1111452 - lawuser (01/31/2015) [-]
And what are you doing to support the series that either use the fan-pandering for good or just not at all?
User avatar #1111456 to #1111455 - qwertyjr (01/31/2015) [-]
I have no idea what you are asking
User avatar #1111458 to #1111456 - lawuser (01/31/2015) [-]
In what way are you contributing to the industry so that the series that are void of fan pandering or use it for good will be more commonplace in future seasonal line-ups?
User avatar #1111469 to #1111458 - qwertyjr (01/31/2015) [-]
I'm not contributing at all. But, I still think fan-pandering shouldn't be allowed for the most part. I get that anime creators need to make a profit, but anime creators shouldn't regress to chap jokes and Panty shots (Unless that's what the entire anime is about from the start) to please the fan base. They should stick to their story line and keep true to their visions.

Nice debate faggot.
User avatar #1111478 to #1111477 - lawuser (01/31/2015) [-]
Yes.
Well, what I'm trying to get at is that despite saying how bad something is, most people are doing nothing to change it aside from increasing the amount of downloads on certain shows, which also does absolutely nothing.
User avatar #1111487 to #1111478 - qwertyjr (01/31/2015) [-]
well, anime doesn't really see the west as their main target. Most anime are designed and made to sell Japanese people aren't they?
User avatar #1111486 to #1111478 - yibdiy ONLINE (01/31/2015) [-]
So, how are you contributing? Since you are taking some nice high moral grounds here, I assume you do contribute.
User avatar #1111489 to #1111486 - lawuser (01/31/2015) [-]
And here I thought I could dodge the question at hand forever...
User avatar #1111492 to #1111489 - qwertyjr (01/31/2015) [-]
Get Rekt Law
User avatar #1111490 to #1111489 - yibdiy ONLINE (01/31/2015) [-]
That's not an answer
User avatar #1111501 to #1111490 - lawuser (01/31/2015) [-]
Yeah, I know.
The only thing I'm doing is having a Crunchyroll account, which I know some people would say doesn't even contribute at all, so I can't say I'm doing much.
That being said, I didn't answer Qwert's question because I know I can't come up with an answer I'm satisfied with. So let me try, at least with an example.
In an ideal world where everything would be as I commanded it, 3rd GIG would have already been released. I don't live in such world though, and 3rd GIG doesn't exist, but I am fine with that because I know I've done nothing to help the progress along.
In a perfect world there certainly would be less fan pandering, but this isn't a perfect world, and so I'm just forced to deal with the current anime industry, which is fine by me.
I think there is a difference between wanting something specific yet doing nothing to help it, and not wanting something and avoiding it, and I'm sorry if I've come off insulting people doing the latter.
User avatar #1111513 to #1111501 - qwertyjr (01/31/2015) [-]
Good rebuttal actually
Here I was up in arms ready to call you a faggot but that was pretty neat. I thinks us fans should do more to put better anime in the industry but you made good and solid points.

also, isn't good anime a perspective?
#1111447 to #1111443 - cptsweatpants (01/31/2015) [-]
Depends.

If the show is trying to be serious at the same time then it's just ends up being a shit show, it never works.

If the show doesn't take itself seriously or it's only purpose actually is fan service it can be a fun watch. Ex. Women against pants brigade.

Fan-pandering is definitely bad for the most part but in some cases it's needed.

Hey Funnyjunk, you don't know me but I've browsed this site for the last 4-5 years. I've never really asked for anything before from you guys, but i understand the power of the internet and what can happen when people support a cause.

Today I would like to ask that you take the time to look over my friends facebook page. I know you guys can do terrible things, but he's trying to become a writer in the film industry and every like helps.

Please only like if you absolutely enjoyed the video, and please refrain from shit spamming his wall. I trust you guys, and i know you guys support legitimate causes and not cries for thumbs. With your guy's help you could jump start his career.

Thank you FunnyJunk,

depends on which version you watched
there's two 30 minute OVAs, both telling the same story and are basically identical
but the newer one isn't as straight forward with the ending
User avatar #1112141 to #1112139 - tonkkax (02/02/2015) [-]
I watched the 30 minute version.

It's kind of hard to develop any feelings towards a character especially if you've only known them for like 30 minutes. Sure, she's a cute little child and the overall theme of the film is grim mixed with childish innocence, which in mathematically equates to sad and depressing.

The reason why i found SAO sad is because I got attached to the characters. You could argue that they really don't have much going for in terms of personalities, but i still somehow managed to find them interesting and relatable.

If you just take it out of context by calling it "super aids" you're only ruining the scene for yourself. Imagine that it's braincancer or whatever you'd prefer. The whole point was that the girl has been sick for the entirety of her life and was "born just to die young and unaccomplished". Asuna helps her realize her dreams of going to school and visiting her home after which she just dies. The way how the whole "sleeping knights guild" appears literally out of nowhere is retarded, but it's still sad.

I'm guessing the problem that everyone has with the show is the poor delivery, but you can get over that. After all, it comes from Japan which has a vastly different culture in comparison to the west, so you can't really put too much blame on them for not hitting all the bells right.
User avatar #1111349 to #1111340 - playercz ONLINE (01/31/2015) [-]
It's from Japan, all the other anime is from Japan, meaning, if it's shit it's just shit, you can't blame it on cultural diversity, otherwise, no other anime could be called enjoyable by 80% of the people who actually do like anime.

I'm not at all taking the fact that you liked it from you, I don't care to be honest, but don't defend it if you don't have quite the "experience" in other works.

User avatar #1111874 to #1111349 - tonkkax (02/01/2015) [-]
Well on the topic of cultural diversity, I think in the episode where Asuna takes Yuuki to her school through the portable camera thing had a moment where you would be completely lost if you had no clue about Japanese culture just saying the words "japanese culture" makes me feel like a disgusting weeaboo. This is only based on a piece of trivia I've heard..
To be specific, the part where she is asked to read a page from a book. She's 15 years old, she should be able to read a page even if she hasn't been at school since fourth grade, right? Well no, there are so many symbols in japanese writing that you have to be on a college graduate level to be able to read a newspaper in Japan. That's why they freak out when she is asked to read the page in the first place.

In retrospect, i realized that "cried" is a bit too big of a word to describe my reaction to the season 2 ending, "shedding a single tear" would be more appropriate.
User avatar #1112024 to #1111874 - playercz ONLINE (02/02/2015) [-]
nah, I'm not totally learning japanese so I have no idea how their language works
you dont have to be at graduate level because newspapers use only hiragana, kana and BASIC Kanji, that you learn in elementary school, it would be fucking retarded if kids couldn't read news, where did you even get this info?
I don't know what portable camera you're talking about, but if I it's for absent students this shit is all over america
It's really fucking funny, because you watch 2 animes and then go on anime board telling people how things in japan work

Well I've only seen like 2 anime series' in total.

I actually started audibly laughing when the doctor said that Yuuki has aids (It's 2025, how the fuck hasn't aids been cured yet?)

I feel like Sword Art Online is a mess of bad dialog and writing, yet it still has a premise that interests me and said premise is explored just enough to make it interesting to watch through.

part of the blame would probably go to this board for calling the series so shit that i lowered my standards to the level that it actually felt interesting.   
   
I held AOT  Eren turning into a Titan was pretty rad, Armin's character development arc was really good  and cowboy bebop It was really good, but i didn't bother watching the movie so the ending might have been a miss because of that. to a very high standard due to their fandoms and they both just didn't impress me that well. It could be that I've just forgotten how much i liked them, but i am by no means saying that SAO is better than either of them.

fake subs by the way. He does talk about otaku but not anime otaku.. it's at 1:08:31 in the documentary.

"maybe I'm eccentric. Not a typical plane fanatic. I don't like Zero (a plane) fanatics. They're otakus, it's a fetish. They just obsessed over it. Otakus don't ever learn anything." "so you're not an otaku?" "No, I'm not."

Also, could I use this moment to ask you about Index/Railgun and why do you like it? If I'm not mistaken you rated it 10/10 on your list, so I want to ask what makes it that good. I personally watched the first 2 episodes and had to stop at ep 3, because it seemed meh. I'm talking about Index here.
User avatar #1111428 to #1111416 - TheMather ONLINE (01/31/2015) [-]
Sure. There's several factors in play:
First off I really like some of the characters: Touma's the guy I wish every MC would act like. Misaka's such a perfect heroine with her tomboyishness and though she dislikes some things about Touma, she accepts him for who he is and will wholeheartedly support him. And the Sisters are just adorable with their stoicism and shenanigans.
I also like how the author has obviously done his research, even those tiny things like the physical phenomena behind a railgun and the price of a winter jacket in Denmark, he doesn't just make stuff up as he goes, he actually makes things immersive.
J.C.Staff's adaption: They chose the perfect voice actors for each role, you can really feel how the voices emphasize the characters, and as I switched from anime to light novel, that feeling was only strengthened. The artstyle is also perfect for the story and the character designs are quite a step up from the artwork in the light novels.
User avatar #1111701 to #1111428 - playercz ONLINE (02/01/2015) [-]

Five episodes behind Parasyte or Garo? If you're talking about Parasyte then I have no idea because I'm in the same boat. As for Garo, the past two episodes have been kind of filler with Alfonso, but I'm still enjoying it. The other three episodes pretty much wrapped the first half of the first season and it was kickass so you should get on it whenever you can.
