Manga I’ve Dropped

It seemed many people enjoyed my post on anime I’ve dropped so I decided to make a post on manga I’ve dropped!

1. Dragon Ball

I know that the show was a lot of peoples’ childhoods but I never got into it. The first few chapters of Dragon Ball did not interest me because there was urine, butts – just gross things. I like characters in bishonen style better. That’s just my personal preference.

2. Mikan no Tsuki

The art style is not very good and the story was confusing. Overall, not a good impression.

3. Kirihito Sanka

Ode-to-Kirihito

This manga is by Osamu Tezuka, the godfather of manga. I understand that he is massively influential to anime but I am not his fan. I’ve read a bit of Lost World, Astro Boy, and Ribbon no Kishi. I’ve also watched Metropolis.

I am not his fan because 1) he grossly exaggerated features of POC. For example, I don’t like the way he drew Chinese characters or African characters. It’s stereotypical and racist. Kirihito Sanka (Ode to Kirihito) was done in 1971. While I can see that it was made many, many years ago, I still don’t like it. I know that some American cartoonists did the same thing too and I don’t like that either.

2) There was rape in Kirihito Sanka, more than once. 3) Reading Kirihito Sanka made me groan at so many moments. The characters are ridiculous and I don’t agree with many of their actions.

4. Masamune-kun no Revenge

Masamune kept talking about taking revenge on Aki but he ran so many errands for her, like getting bread for her.

???

Okay… I thought this was about revenge, not about becoming her servant. Masamune needs to grow a backbone and I don’t see anything there is to like about Aki. I don’t care if she’s cute! I don’t like anyone in the series.

5. Chobits

I’m not big on robot manga or anime. Chi is adorable but that’s basically all there is to her. Picking her up from the trash reminds me of picking up a stray cat from the streets. Yet, she is seen as a love interest and it just doesn’t sit well with me.

  1. I’m also not a fan of Osamu Tezuka. I understand and respect his influence, but his stuff is just not for me. I don’t think I’ve read anything on here except for Dragon Ball, which I eventually dropped for the anime.

  2. I dropped Dragon Ball and Chobits as well. Dragon Ball for the reasons you gave, and Chobits for the creepy place Chii’s on switch was… that weirded me out too much.

  3. Can’t disagree with anything you said here! I will say that after 50 chapters or so the potty/pervy humor disappeared from Dragon Ball and the series got a lot more enjoyable.

  4. Oh dear I remember watching a few eps of Masamune kun no Revenge, and I dropped it quite quickly. Just couldn’t get into it because it made no sense to me. I wouldn’t expect too much difference with the manga, I’ll avoid it for the best. Thanks for sharing.
