Which is better? Anime, Manga or Light Novel? 

I am back! 

2 months out so I might be a little rusty though let’s see how we go! 
Iv been on a journey with these mediums overs the last 5 years. 

First it was dubbed anime, easy to binge watch and obviously in the native tounge. 

Then when I was out of those subbed Anime. 

Then Manga,  and finally light novels.

So what is a better medium for getting involved. 

Well ofcourse everything is not in all formats so check myanimelist or Wikipedia to see what platforms you have to enjoy things. 

It depends on when you want to get in on your series. 

The general flow is light novel, Manga then anime. 

Some jump around and become manga later like Sword Art Online. 

Imagination is key in both Light Novel and Manga as your only get some stimulation from the frames or manga panels, so you need to fill in the rest. 

Anime depicts the story as per what the director thinks and don’t get me wrong I have never seen a badly directed anime! (I have not seen all anime) 

I prefer Light Novel and Anime as I can imagine the missing parts and gives me a sense of involvement. 

Whats your favourite? 

Currently reading light novel: My Shield Hero

Currently reading Manga: Tokyo Ghoul Re: (again),  plus current serialisation like Fuuka and Btoom. 

See you later!

Too long between posts: Manga Recommendations

こんにちわみなさん!

Hello everyone!

Its been a long time between posts! It’s been about 4 months so sorry for the wait!

Iv been busying planing my wedding and moving into my first home!

So what do i have for you all?

Manga suggestions!

So here are a few who have me waiting month on month for new releases!

Ajin:Demi-Human

Author: Miura Tsuina

The human race is faced with a new fear. Humans that can’t die? Demi Humans or Ajins have recently been discovered and dealt with through out the world’s governments though Japan is going to have a crisis on its hands!

Enthralling and action packed. Art is amazing . The first season is on Netflix and is worth watching though it will force you to the Manga for more!

The Rising Of The Shield Hero

盾の勇者の成り上がり

Author: Aneko Yusagi

After being summoned to a different world 5 player take on the role of hero. Taking on different roles like sword etc one participant doesn’t want to be a part of it and works against the flow. He is not your typical hero though I am drawn to the way he is depicted.

With a random bunch of followers and being eternally hated he goes forth to fulfil his wishes.

Art is great and story is glorious!

Darwin’s Game

ダーウィンズゲーム

Author:FlipFlops

What can I say about this manga?

This needs! I say needs an anime!

This reminds me of Manga like Real Account,  same premises though the way the story is told. A mobile game app gives real power to the player and lets just say they are playing for keeps!

Character development is big without diluting story and art is great!

This will be a hit!

That’s all from me!

Till next time!

See you later!

Anime Thoughts: Noragami

image

Noragami is a supernatural, fantasy manga based on the Japanese gods.

Opening of Season 1 and 2 of the anime have great music to you pumped for the episode as 24 mins is not enough!

Great character development of the mains characters with evolving stories without the feeling of its to much of a filler.

Currently in its second season.

I am about to go through the manga on the commute to and from work on the train.

In closing great watch. Chain watch the first season as it’ll make more sense if you watch the first.

Ps. Il try and post a bit more regularly as I’ve been very slack.  Thank you for all who have been reading the past 2 months!

See you later!

Bakuman is the first Anime I watched religiously in 4 days. There is 3 seasons of 24 episodes so that’s a lot of TV.

This work of art comes from the same people who brought you Death Note….
Yep that’s right Death Note.

Its a great insight into how manga is created and published, as well as a great story which depicts love and comedy.
