was there a worldwide pandemic when mha rising came out?
>he thinks the whole world revolves around USshiggy diggy
>>221515007> he still thinks we're in a pandemic
>>221514915I dream of a future where Japan bans all media exports to the U.S. and puts clauses in all contracts that explicitly ban dubbing.
>>221515007>PandemicThere was no pandemic. It was all faked.
>>221515095all of the theaters near me are closed and I still have to wear a mask in stores so yes
>>221515160The CDC. They admitted quite a while ago that only about 5% of all reported deaths were legitimate, which brings the total number of deaths far below even 100000 globally.
>>221515168The fact that theaters are closed and the ones that are open take less than half of their capacity means Kimetsu no Yaiba isn't making nearly as mucy as it could.Now go cope elsewhere.
>>221515302how am I coping?
>>221515041OP literally gave it handicap by limiting Kimetsu to US box office alone, worldwide it absolutely wipes the floor with MHA.
>>221515226I mean an actual source. Not you should believe me just because.
>>221515513it wiped the floor with everything
>>221514915Is this the power of making a canon movie between seasons instead of random filler?
>>221514915How will Jeremy cope?
>>221515168government mask mandates do not indicate a pandemicthat means they told you to jump and you jumped
>>221515007MHA's lack of popularity has nothing to do with COVID-19.
>>221516375k, kid, here's that (You) you're desperate for
>>221516375who gives a fuck not anime or manga, are you lost?
>>221516011Probably by making a bunch of bait threads to start the same argument over and over
>>221515007Ah yes, because nothing makes people go to see a film more than a pandemic.
>>221515007I'm pretty sure MHA rising came out when literally every country started lockdowns
>>22151802326 feb 2020, way before covid outbreak in US
>>221516011>Jeremyso you all have your own version of Barry? Interesting
>>221518193Anon was talking about worldwide
>>221515226>They admitted quite a while ago that only about 5% of all reported deaths were legitimateAt least come up with a somewhat believable conspiracy rather than a retarded claim.
>>221517898You can spot a few in the catalog right now.
>>221518193https://www.ajmc.com/view/a-timeline-of-covid19-developments-in-2020>January 21 — CDC Confirms First US Coronavirus Case
>>221514915How's VEG Movie doing in the U.S soil?
>that last part of the movie with the main character yelling and then the sad music slapsI haven't watched the anime and still made me feel
>>221518985And how long after that does the US actually close down the theaters?
>>221519182>And how long after that does the US actually close down the theaters?Pretty much a week after Heroes Rising premiered but it was pulled from theaters before actually completing it's run.
went and seen it last night. it was alright, ending fight scene was fucking kino omg holy fuck. and ending song was pretty sweet too. would give the movie 7/10
>>221517927>Want to go see a movie>There is only this chinese cartoon on teathers beause no one is releasing anything else>Watch this chinese cartoon or don't watch anything.
>>221519484The movie ended its run on march 13.The us closed down the theaters on march 17.Btw DS grossed this in just 10 days
>>221519741Yeah, don't watch anything, not everyone is a braindead zombie who just goes to the theater to watch literally whatever is screening at the moment.
>>221514915stop shilling this
>>221519951>The movie ended its run on march 13.Wrong. It was pulled before completing it's run infact many people reporting showings being closed by then.>>221519951>The us closed down the theaters on march 17.Reports of theaters closing down starting a full ten days before then.You are so desperate it's pathetic
>>221515226The flu is also apparently non existent now too.
>>221520219Incredible what social distancing, sanitizing, washing your hands and wearing a mask can do
>>221520020Tell that to the average person
>>221520167https://www.boxofficemojo.com/release/rl867926529/?ref_=bo_rl_tab#tabsLast day March 13https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impact_of_the_COVID-19_pandemic_on_cinema On March 12, Qatar also closed all cinemas, as did the US on March 17
Either way I don't see this as making $30 million.
>>221520167>>221520497Mhakeks btfoed again
>>221520497>box office mojoRetard>Earliest reports of cinemas closing was March 7th>March 7th
>>221520497Boxoffice mojo doesn't report in every theater dumbass
>>221520917>>221521053At this point it's just pathetic
>>221520296You mean marking down every case of the flu as covid instead, right?
>>221515226Jesus mother of goddamn Christ, pol, you're the infection fighting another infection, both you and SJWs aren't the cure.
>>221521656I don't even browse /pol/ anymore. I just like to shitpost in dumb threads and make trannies mad.
>>221520616If they released the 3rd movie it might beat kny's 2nd weekend
Do people actually give a shit about non canon filler movies?
>Heroes Rising>Opened in 1,275 theaters>Competition was Invisible Man, Sonic The Hedgehog, and Gone With the Wild>All this when people starting to wary about public outings due to Covid and a week's before theaters shut down >Mugen Train>Opened in 2,100 theaters>Only competition was Mortal Kombat>Post Pandemic Hollywood has pulled all their movies from theatrical showings so now they're mainly available via streaming or very limited theatrical runs and people are still not going to the theaters in this current climateSo Mugen Train's haul means jackshit since nobody cares about the box office anymore.
>>221521830It's impossible.First of all, MHA is not popular in Japan.
>>221521830Shut the fuck up you stupid bitch
>>221521589Glad you agree that KnYfujos are pathetic hatefag
I hear there are a lot of BnHA fans out there.Are they all reluctant to pay for it?
>>2215152261. No they didn't 2. The lethality rate isn't a criteria for what constitutes a pandemic
>>221522061>Competition was Invisible Man, Sonic The Hedgehog, and Gone With the Wild>Only competition was Mortal KombatWhy are people not bringing this up? Main reason why anime didn't do well at the boxoffice was due to the competition but now that Hollywood has bailed on the boxoffice and into streaming there's no competition.
>>221522327>but now that Hollywood has bailed on the boxoffice and into streamingI thought it's only HBO and everybody in hollywood hates them for it?
>>221518280>he's never seen Jeremy in actionTrust me, it's a sight to behold.
>>221514915Dragon Ball Super Broly also made more money in the US than MHA did world wide. Conclusion? MHA will never be among big shonen, it's an overhyped middling hit.
>>221522432>HBOWarner and no most studios have opted towards streaming. They only made an exception for Godzilla vs Kong because it was made for the theatrical experience but their entire lineup is going straight to streaming for limited theatrical runs which doesn't help theaters.
>>221522061>Post pandemicWe are still mid pandemic some theaters are still closed and the whole film got leaked by sony and it's already on nyaa.Weebs love piracy so it could be even higher
>>221522327>Why are people not bringing this up?Because it destroys their narrative. If things were back to normal Mugen Train wouldn't even register.
KnY was also popular in Asian countries other than Japan, so this result is understandable.Are there any countries where MHA is popular?
Almost $100M outside Japan
>>221522793I hate DBS, MHA and KnY almost identically, but facts are facts. Unlike MHA, DBS is a billion dollars per year established franchise and the other is a manga sales phenomenon and by the far the biggest new hit shonen or anime of any demographic/genre for that matter in the last decade. MHA has never been close to that.
>>221523035>KnY was also popular in Asian countries other than Japan, so this result is understandable.See>>221522327>>221522061So Mugen Train only did those numbers due to every theater being shut down and Hollywood not caring anymore.
>>221523191MHA is not just a failed work.It's a failure that cost a lot of money in advertising.
Who the fuck you think watch anime movies at cinema outside weebs?Nobody
>>221523191No one cares if you hate popular thing loser
>>221523046It is a pity that this film could not be shown in China.Oh, MHA had the same condition about this, didn't they?
>>221521656Did you know pol was one of the first places online to truly raise a fit about the potential severity of the virus, at a time when everyone thought it would just be some literally nothing china-only flu? But feel free to keep strawmanning
>>221523563DS opened in more theaters across the globe
>>221523046Did it not show in europe outside of spain or something?
>>221522293>2. The lethality rate isn't a criteria for what constitutes a pandemicListen to yourself.
>>221522067Why MHA isn't popular in Japan? Is it because of the latest chapters?
>>221523672Yeah, it will come in all europe around late may
>>221523655Two Heroes opened in more theaters across the globe.This can be found by looking it up.
>>221523875>Two Heroes opened in more theaters across the globeIt didn't
>>221523853Probably due to the pandemic, but I find it funny i could watch it before france and italy.
You're all fucken losers, had to look up what mha abv
Who cares it was leaked and could have made more. No money for you!
>>221523875>Two Heroes opened in more theaters across the globe.>JapanHeroes Rising - 374 theatersMugen Train - 569 theaters
>>221523780Why do you think it's unpopular to begin with?
>>221524108>across the globe>posts japan
>>221523621And was also one of the first places to complain about doing what doctors do in hospitals when working with contagions, taking safety precautions, and locking down danger zones when the severity of the danger of a pandemic was known.Newsflash retard, /pol/ is just contrarians without substance. The braindead mirror image of the mainstream collective consciousness.
>>221514915Rengocuck died like a bitch
>>221524361>across the globe>USA
>>221515114You have my vote.
>>221523674You're retarded. Lethality rate isn't important. Covid affects the economy much worse than any lockdown if it spreads fully. It doesn't have to kill people, it just has to knock 10% of the workforce out of commission each year for four weeks.Imagine the economic impact of adding a month of sick leave to every worker, but with no benefits.Mongoloid. Why do you think your retard double-digit IQ and high school scholastic failure is entitled to an opinion. Kill yourself.
>>221515041They world does revolve around the US, it's not even a pride thing it's just reality.
>>221521641kek hes got no answer for that. how did covid cases rise but flue cases disappear? its almost as if...
>>221515226I heard from venn shakiro that jumping from the empire state is good for your health. Do it now.
>>221514915NOOODEMON SLAYER IS ONLY POPULAR BECAUSE OF UFOTABLETHE PANDEMIC MADE IT POPULARIT'S MEDIOCRE, EVERYONE IS WRONG, NOT ME
>>221524634It's almost as if you can't even spell correctly but somehow think your retard ass knows anything about interpretation of data.Flu cases and COVID cases are, ceteris paribus, orthogonal. In this case there's inverse correlation because mitigation of COVID also mitigates flu. There is no concomitant increase in flu transmission, so numbers will inevitably be lower than previous years.Your stupid nigger cattle mind can't comprehend correlations other than unity or -1, and that is why you are unfit to breathe. Return the oxygen you have stolen, you fucking inbred brazilian monkey
>>221524136Hell I knowThat's why I'm asking
>>221524405Yeah you're done
>>221524881ur dumb and brainwashed go get ur china flu shot and die we wil be betterr off without u lolololol
I think the western gross of this film is evidence that anime is *officially* mainstream. It’s bizarre seeing how many regular people I know that have watched this movie, people that you wouldn’t expect to be anime fans. Even though it’s not a super long one, Demon Slayer will probably become one of the uber popular shounen in the coming decade and usher in a new age of bland capeshit in quantities never seen before to pander to the new large normalfag western fanbase
>>221514915And I'm still never gonna watch the series.Just like I will never watch Code Geass.
>A Series thats been dominating charts has beaten another animew-woah
>>221524930holy ESLIt's "hell IF I know"
>>221524584Anon you are fucking retarded or a paid shill. It wasn't that dangerous, it wasn't strong enough to impair anyone working 'essential' jobs, and it wasn't spreading nearly as much as you thought it was. Adding a month of sick leave to every worker would hardly impact the economy since the people most at risk of getting sick are working shitty service jobs, you fucking retarded onions chugger.You know what did actual damage to the economy? Saying it was going to be 2 weeks and then extending it to a full year.
Why BNHAfags lie so much?
>>221524584>advocates for shutting down anything that isn't a large corporation for what will soon become literally years because a percentage of people who are of working age get sick>most of which just get a mild cold>calls others retardedThe left will jump on any excuse to corrode economic liberty. You're not the intellectual wing of politics just because you occupy the universities (an argument that collapses in on itself when you consider that leftists claim that the universities have historically served the people that they claim to be anti-intellectual). History has proven time and time again across multiple cultures (China, Russia, Cuba, Zimbabwe, Germany, etc.) and multiple decades that you're malicious, self-absorbed, and don't care about reality.
Wouldn't it be more popular if we did this?
Do people honestly think BNHA is the best shounen?
>>221525495>Taneku takes no bullshit and will kill shiggyI like it
The way people are acting you would think MHA is some god tier series but its literally just a worst part 1 naruto.
>>221515226you could have stopped this
>>221525591Thats already canon Deku
>>221525685Oh he wants to kill shiggy now? I thought he wanted to save the psycho
>>221525495>Breaks Bakugo's arm the moment he tries to be an assI'd watch it.
>>221525759He still wants to save him
>>221525759There's no way this guy will be popular.
I thought you guys hated My Hero?
>>221526067MHA fans just like to come in and shit on Kimetsu threads because it came out later, blew it the fuck out, and then ended. MHA never even had a chance for a runback before Kimetsu cemented itself as one of the best selling anime and manga shonen while also being a cultural phenomenon.
>>221526346Tanjirou just didn't want that guy to go to hell. The same thing happens when Tanjirou gets turned into a demon. Giyuu tries to protect Tanjirou from killing anybody so his soul isn't dammed to hell.
so now that black clover is over all MHA fans are going after KNY? is it like a cult or something?
this shitfling is fun to watch because both series are mediocre and shit
>>221526676How deep in your ass is that fence anon?
>>221526762Almost as far as my cock up ur mom's ass
>>221527136You almost had me, but then I remembered they don't make fences that small.
>>221525961this is a moral dilemma inside his headhe never says to shiggy 'you look you needed saving'he just sees a broken kid inside shiggy and wants to help him and if that means killing him he is getting ready to do that
>>221523780Because up until the War with Shiggy fuck all was happening, it's insane this series is like 300 chapters long and yet feel like nothing has really happened in it
>>221525351I'm not humoring the musings on economics from someone for whom a differential equation is as equally foreign as arithmetic.You probably don't even possess the mental faculties to do calculus and yet you dare have an opinion. You are a dumbfuck nigger, talking of things of which you have no comprehension. You are a whore to rhetoric.>>221525456Show me a single quantitative analysis that can justify anything you've ever claimed in your life. Oh wait, you're borderline illiterate and complain about smart people because you've achieved nothing meritorious in life and so you will complain that anyone with a functioning brain is a leftist boogieman. Oh no, the left! Help me, I dindu nuffin stupid, those people with educations just always be leftistCry more retard. I'm sure your job as a wage cuck justifies your miserable existence just because you couldn't hack it in higher education. But I'm sure getting Bs in high school means you're smart. You don't have to prove it to anyone. Just keep telling yourself you're smart even though you struggle with any subject that isn't hentai esoterica.
>>221519162That outburst was pure cope but it was the based kind of cope.
>>221527944There was some foreshadowing, but nothing really happened.
>>221528067I've learned a foreign language and written programs using nothing but things that I wanted for my own convince as a base for my ideas. I've also read enough writings on Marxism (including the writings of Marx himself) to recognize a Marxist when I see one and know that it's the most insidious ideology that humanity has ever invented.Sorry, but not everyone who opposes you is an anti-intellectual dumbass who's scared of anyone who's passed a math class. The whole lot of you are definitely opposed to rough objective analysis of your own ideas, though.
>>221528067imagine getting this butthurt over a meme virus that doesn't kill people
>>221515226absolutely true and based
>>221528555>I've learned a foreign language>This is considered a mark of intelligenceCase in point of being a retard I guess. I speak five languages fluently btw, not including the programming languages I use for e.g. statistical analysis and general programming, of course. This is, among my peers, completely average.You're a middling fish in a minute pond. Cope.
>>221525961>I don't want to kill the demons
>>221528263>There STILL isn't an answer to who the Traitor is
>>221528930You made the claim that everyone who opposes you is anti-education. That's blatantly untrue. I'm opposed to the corrupting factor of tax dollars in education, which will always bias the educators against economic liberty, and is even more unnecessary in an age where the internet makes educational material easily accessible without ever setting foot on a campus.
>>221526612yeah they are already switching against chainsawman and jjk
>>221527944>220 chapters of nothing happening>In the next 20 chapters Shigaraki goes from hobo to a billionaire with an army of over 100 thousands people and AFO powerYou just know that half of the manga is shit that he makes up along the way
>>221529441I don't care if you're opposed to education, I'm saying you are pathetically uneducated and your opinion has no merit because you don't have half the wit to interpret the data correctly enough to make valid conclusions. The kind of dumbshit that doesn't know offhand the very basics that the rest of us were taught as preteens/pubescents of confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, PDFs and their higher moments, or goodness-of-fit measures (though even a mongoloid like you must know the obvious ones like chi-square and Student t).Your opinion, plainly, doesn't matter, because you will call a fiscal conservative and free market proponent like myself, who prefers his economic systems dynamical but understands game theory enough to want to mitigate a tragedy of the commons, a "Marxist". You're retarded.
>>221528067Most pseud shit I have ever read.
You already know that if they made the war arc into a movie it would sell 100 million in it's first weekend, kekToo bad Bones are too retarded to realize that.
>>221530149Again, you're advocating for shutting down the economy for years in order to deal with a minor illness that, by your own admission, lasts four weeks (for most people of working age, it's just a cough that won't stop them from working). That will literally kill healthy young people if it's allowed to go on for too long, not to mention the older people who are legitimately under threat from covid. You're not in any position to look down on anyone for their analytical skills, and the people who oppose you aren't anti-education across the board. Because you're a dishonest leftist piece of shit, I'll go ahead and remind you that you did indeed act like anyone who opposes you is anti-education.>Oh wait, you're borderline illiterate and complain about smart people because you've achieved nothing meritorious in life and so you will complain that anyone with a functioning brain is a leftist boogieman. Oh no, the left! Help me, I dindu nuffin stupid, those people with educations just always be leftist
>>221530222Probably 'cause you're too illiterate to read anything.
>>221530476Your premises are incorrect. Four weeks is an absolute best case scenario, dipshit. You are arguing from incorrect information. I am not a leftist, and your ad hominem is not only laughably incorrect, it is also purposeless.Everything you're saying is incorrect. I haven't the patience nor crayons to explain to you exactly why, but your inability to reason should give you some humility.I was arguing that you, specifically, are strawmanning anyone who disagrees with you. You, specifically, are worthless. You, specifically, lack a functioning brain. You, specifically, are a waste of space.The idiotic first order logic you attempt to employ is not only invalid, even if your premises were correct (contagion must be restricted such that a positive case cannot be permitted to continue working for reasons that they avoid infecting others, this is an economic fact even with something more harmless like a flu, which you can easily find numerous analyses about if you search Scopus or maybe Google Scholar since your retard ass probably lacks an academic license, check for keywords like 'paid sick leave productivity cost/benefit meta study'), but your premises are wrong to begin with.Nigger.
>>221515745Didn't do much for Made in Abyss, so probably no.
>>221530975I'm gonna seethe so hard now because you remind me that this movie is doing absolutely better than Made in abyss movie.
This movie is boring to begin with, so it can't be a hit like KnY.
>>221528263reminder that just like pic related, the whole traitor plotline was either forgotten or will never amount to anythinghow can anyone still defend this garbage?
>>221525135The success of sailor moon, pokemon, and dragon ball here wasn't enough for anime to be officially mainstream?
>Mugen Train does really well>now eveyone is gonna ride Rengoku's dick even though he shows up for all of one arc and then diesIt's like we all became Tanjiro.
Why does /a/ suddenly hate MHA?
>>221532546>The success of sailor moon, pokemon, and dragon ballAnime has been mainstream in Latin America and Europe since the late 80's but not in burgerland.
>>221532414Iida and AllMight should have been killed.
>>221533072Really? There are anime that have gotten so popular in burgerland they're treated like any other cartoon. They were airing on saturday morning cartoon blocks which were huge in the 80s-90s.
>>221533178Burgers got into Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon more than 10 years later than other American countries.
They ruined Akaza's voice for me Too high pitched...
>>221532134Jesus I almost forgot they pulled this asspull fanfic bullshit. At least it looked cool
I thought MHA was more popular than Demon slayer in America.
>>221532967contrarians looking for something to glom onto, usually popular stuff gets targeted
>>221533072anon I grew up in burgerland in the 90s early 00s on a steady diet of Dragon Ball Z, Tenchi Muyo, Inuyasha, Outlaw Star, Yu Yu Hakusho, BIG O, and Gundam. All that shit was running on Cartoon Network through Toonami. Everyone who grew up during that time knows that shit like the back of their handshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfadJj4d5K4
>>221533481I think it fits, his more somber moments will flow better. That being said I agree that it's the worst casting so far but pretty much everyone has been perfect.
>>221534283>ToonamiYeah, while Anime had a few hours on some cable network in burgerland, it was at prime time on public tv on Latin America. I remember people of all ages gathering at taquerias to watch Dragon Ball Z when the namek saga was first airing.
>>221533481>>221534751I dunno, his screaming was perfecthttps://streamable.com/l7p6mx
>>221534847>I remember people of all ages gathering at taquerias to watch Dragon Ball Z when the namek saga was first airingthat's pretty awesome, I remember everyone freaking out at school during the Frieza fight and Goku going super saiyan
First the manga single handedly outsold the entire US comic industry.Now it's outselling every movie in the US. This is while it's only played in smaller selection of theaters than Mortal Kombat.weebs won.
>>221532967Fans suck balls.
>>221532967Because it is garbage, the first 50 or so chapters were alright, after that it went downhill fast
>>221535323really? Of all the frames of the movie they had to use that one?
>>221535793so classic shounen garbage?
>>221536367classic shounen have the earlier arcs being the weakestmeanwhile MHA started strong (that's why /a/ used to like it) but went to shit because of no stakes and the MC becoming an insufferable mary sue
>>221529781jesus christ MHA fans are horrifying. will it ever end?
>>221537043Yet it's better than KnY and most other running shounen.
>>221514915I don't get the KnY craze, it just doesn't look interesting at all.
>>221537714Pretty animation, unlike most other battle shonen.
>>221525495>headbutts a pro hero in the first day of his internship because the guy is acting like a jackass>calls Stein a coping coward for attacking heroes because of muh ideology>harasses Shoto into visiting Endeavor through sheer force of peer pressure>meets Mirio, does not feel inferior or self-conscious, they become best friendsthis would improve the story a lot.
>>221534751>>221534952The screamsn were good but throughout the manga, especially vs Gayuu and Tang, I expected him to have a deeper voice. It's all ruined for me now.
>>221537188Why would they not post the three best sellers?
>>221526346tangerine:>saves his friend>knocks the guy unconscious>still has the moral fortitude to worry about the fate of the piece of shit who was manipulated by a literal demondeku:>gets bullied into submission>does not react, too afraid>copes by talking shit to kacchan inside his headman, you´re making me like tangerine even more.
I like MHA, but I absolutely hate Bakugo and Dekus relationship
>>221537123what makes it better?
>>221538657just to name a few>real stakes>plot actually goes somewhere>MC isn't a faggotjust as an example, there's a similar traitor plotline in JJK, but not only they find out the traitor was indeed a student, but he pays for this betrayal with his lifemeanwhile in MHA not only the traitor plotline never went anywhere, but you have 40 useless first year students participating in a fucking war and literally nothing happens with any of them
>>221532664>nowthey've always been riding his dick retardhave you forgotten the pre-movie polls?
>By the time people are exposed to the full glory of GODjima the series will be nearly overYet we will have to live through many more years of Rengoku wank
>>221522061wow this was unbearably based and not full of worthless air
>>221539411I disagree with all of these.
>>221530476This Cannot Be Real Real Talk
>>221539411I´m the anon who made the question, but I don´t understand your answer. I thought the conversation was about MHA being better than kimetsu. was JJK even brought up beforehand?I do agree that JJK is better than MHA, although I prefer kimetsu to both (this may change depending on the quality of JJK´s final arc).
>>221539582Himejima will always live in the Hall of Fame as a participant of one of the best shonen fights ever, though. he will be enshrined by dozens of "great anime fights" compilations on youtube.
Stop OP, you are going to drive them into suicideThey are already down to their last card, to push the irrationality that somehow the pandemic benefited Kimetsu and only Kimetsu
I've never read JJK volume 0, how violent is it? I bet they are under massive pressure to make it something that could pass censorship in China, Kimetsu literally left a couple of hundred million dollars on the table having too much violence for Chinese censors.
>>221538657jjk has no plot, it's fights the manga, cool but that's about itkny peaks didn't surpass mha's peak
Just saw the movie. Movie was alright until the end where it got fucking amazing.8/10Still liked episode 19 more though
>>221522061>>Heroes Rising>>Opened in 1,275 theaters>Mugen Train>Opened in 2,100 theatersIt should be noted that the theaters for Kimetsu are operating in 25% capacity
>>221541049>kny peaks didn't surpass mha's peakDelusional
>>221541049>kny peaks didn't surpass mha's peakthat´s kinda impossible since we haven´t even seen mha´s final arc. a shitty end would tank its rereading value for most readers.
And yet Godzilla was better than all 3
>>221535323>First the manga single handedly outsold the entire US comic industry.Meh, easy to do. The US comic industry is in shambles and completely stagnant. They really can't get out of their self imposed status quo based capeshit purgatory.
>>221537714A well animated anime released at apparently the right time.
the MHA movies suck assbut MHA is a better series.
we beat dragon ball shit too, pokemon soon
>>221541762Godzilla stopped being good since the first movie even it wasnt good
>>221516011isnt Jeremy a faggot who shitpost in the BC threads and praise BnHA?
>>221518351Nobody cares about the world.
>>221542183>b-b-but we beat dragon ball shitKneel.
>>221542183>he thinks you can beat Mewtwo Strikes Backlol
>>221542183>we beat dragon ball shit tooTrying beating something people actually watch.
>>221542183Mewtwo-sama, I kneel...
>>221542183>thinks DREAMon SLACKERS can beat CHADkemonThe absolute state of KnY cucks.
>best character dies early on in the serieswhy does shonen always do this
>>221543463I had that pikachu plush as a kid. Brings back memories... I cut a hole on the bottom where its crotch would be and fucked the shit out of it constantly. Ended up chafing my dick on the cotton fibers, but it was worth it. That whore was asking for it all the time
>>221544366No wonder the Pikachu has dead, soulless eyes.
>>221542183>pyramid of lightMy Dad took me to this
>>221542705Yes. Recently he began falseflaging as a BCfag trying to start a war with JJKfags
>>221546587My mom did. Managed to get both the Pyramid of Light and BESD cards.
>>221542183Pikachu merch alone > One Piece franchise + KnY franchise + Naruto + Dragon Ball etc ...
>>221541297It should also be mentioned that the fact it's a sequel will also filter out the general public.
So did it make enough to pay off Ufotable's tax evasion?
>>221542183>$100 in 2000 is worth $164.90 today
>>221540253Someone already made another bait thread pointing this out. They are so pathetic holy kek.
>>221514915Good. MHA's main feature is improbable jaw-lines.
>>221515041>he thinks the whole world doesn't revolve around the US
>>221542183>>221547588Ran it through an inflation calculator. In today's money, Mewtwo Strikes Back made around $136,325,263. So, proportionally, Demon Slayer is a long way away.
>>221527285Shonentards are retarded niggerfaggot normalfags.
>>221537714Normalfaggots being posers of liking anime. Because is popular in social media.
>>221525961The most popular character in KNY is that guy>>221526386I dunno despite how well KNY is doing. When I look around kids are running around in Deku long sleeves and MHA blu-rays sell out crazy quick here, while rarely anyone wears MNY stuff in public and the demon slayer blu-rays are in full stock.
>>221537714This >>221537852 and >>221550060. Normalfags will hold up anything shonen with even a marginally higher-than-average animation budget up like it's the greatest thing ever made. It was also vaguely popular already, so they latched onto it because it already being popular meant it was low risk for them to fall into line behind. It's like becoming a DBZ fan in the 90s or a Pokemon fan in 1998 or a Yu-Gi-Oh fan in 2002. They do it because it's low risk to their social standing.
>>221520296Incredible that apparently everything is so bad because nobody is doing that.Apparently the flu no longer exists because everyone is doing it.See the the problem?
>>22151491MHA rising? what exactly is it?
>>221533481If you are talking about his nip voice then shit taste. If you are talking about his eng voice then you are 100% right
>>221534847>>221534283>Latin AmericaWasn't it that anime in Latin America was never censored? I remember someone telling me that once. On the other hand I remember the censorship on Sailor Moon for example. The infamous cousin thing
>>221551418Only his screaming part was good in the original
>>221551468>Wasn't it that anime in Latin America was never censored?Yes. Spanish TV would either dub directly over uncut Japanese footage or just add Spanish subs to otherwise raw Japanese broadcast footage.
>>221515041It doesProbably not for much longer but for now it does
Why did Ufotable spread chink virus so the movie would sell?
This lad had enough charm to get even prickly bastards like Sanemi and Obanai to like him. The average normalfag never stood a chance.
>>221522061Kimetsu kiddies irreparably BTFO
>>221514915>A canon movie from a compact and well received series that has ended >A non-canon movie from a series that has gone for hundreds of chapters with no end in sight and people has lost track of who's doing whatThis isn't even a fair comparison. MHA movies should be compared to DBZ movies instead and I don't think they would fare well in that aspect too
>>221532414> never amount to anything I wouldn’t be surprised after nothing happened with Deku’s arms after fighting Shiggy
>>221522061Holy based, kimetsufags BTFO
>>221542183Dragon Ball and KnY fusion can kick Pikachu's ass.Kneel to super Nezuko
>>221522061KnY can't use half a sheet due to CovidHeroes Rising still could use all the sheets
>>221522061This. KnY really is a case of there being absolutely no competition since Hollywood doesn't care anymore, and kids having nothing else to spend their money on. Thus, the stars aligned perfectly for KnY to become the top dog right now.
>>221556040look at those fat tits
>>221522061Wait, Covid was not a big deal in US yet when HR was released.At that time US was still laughing at China and Italy.
>>221522061So this is the latest cope>and people are still not going to the theaters in this current climateAnd yet Kimetsu beat every anime film except pokémon, that really speaks volumes of how popular Kimetsu is.
>KnY 5,000+ rating 99%>MHA 2,500+ rating 98%>DBS 2,500+ rating 92%
>>221522061THEY HATED HIM FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH
>>221557395Cuz it's not truth.Covid was not serious in U.S. Feb-Mar 2020.Everyone thought it's only in Asia and Italy.
>>221557137>>and people are still not going to the theaters in this current climateThey totally are, the fact that the movie is doing so well is proof enough, specially the young audience which is the main demographic
>>221557485Even if the covid didn't matter the main point is the difference in competition
>>221557576I was simply using decucks own logic against him anon. People will obviously want to see the movie since Kimestu is a popular and loved series.
>>221522061You'll only attract seething KnYfags with those words.
Decuck stop replying to yourself
>>221522061>MHA lost to KNY because of Covid>Early 2020 Covid situation affects to box office worse than mid 2021
>>221522061This is why I still come to /a/. There's nothing like watching shonenfags getting utterly blown the fuck out.
>>221557731in 2020 cinemas closed, i don't see how it gets any worse than that.In 2021 people want to go to the cinema more than ever, i think it's fair to say that KNY would do less if covid didn't exist
>>221557485And he forgets KnY can't use 50% of seats for social distancing.
To begin with, neither TwoHeroes nor Heroesrising were very popular when they were released in Japan.Their box office receipts were about the same as GINTAMA.
>>221557822I agree seeing the cope from herotards have never been this good
>>221557614Competition is only really relevant when discussing videogame sales, it's meaningless for films
>>221558066>it's meaningless for filmsNo, it's not.
>>221522061>>Mugen Train>>Opened in 2,100 theaterswhy lie?
>>221514915Kimetsu is R-rated too
>>221558066Most people will go to the cinema once a week, or even once a month, so yeah it matters
>>221552269This pretty much. China got away with screwing over HK and Covid so it's better to bow to the CCP overlords.
btw is the demon slayer movie good?
>>221558581Yeah it's alright, some ugly cg but the ending made up for those parts
>>221558581yes, it also has an absolutely amazing fight scene, it's worth watching just for that
I don't care about popularity.But as a quality, KnY kicks MHA's ass.To be fair, no Jump anime can match Ufo's fantastic anime quality.Animations, visual effects, profuctions, osts, everything was totally different level.
if Zentisu was there,akaza would have died easily.

>>221558773nice bait, got a chuckle out of me
>>221532967A mediocre series that starts shit and keeps on being shit is one thing.MHA started fairly strong and people got their expectations high and many were let down. That is bound to create some resentment towards the franchise. Those who wanted a light hearted school setting got BTFO. Those who wanted the gritty main plot were kept on hold for 2/3 of the run and many left midway. Tragedyfags have nothing to latch on because all the promises of drama were resolved peacefully (Iida, Bakugou's bullying, Deku's arms, Mirio's dequirking). I bet the traitor will be just a nothing burger too.TL;DR MHA made some big promises and failed to deliver.
>>221558581Pretty good yeah
>>221538281MHAtards will never acknowledge this because the fanbase is full of Deku selfinsertera and fujos who love him because he's cute and funny.However in the Kimetsu fandom there are little to no self inserters. I wonder why.

>>221514915And nip bugmen still won't give us international releases for their movies, except this one, but will keep complaining about "muh piracy".When will they understand that we want to watch shit like made in abyss, eva, and the like and WILL pay for it.Shouldn't they want to make tons of money?
>>221560063I would have loved to see MIA but that was only in like the UK for the eu. At least KnY will release in the north.

I'm very concerned about the success of KyY. Where some may see benefit to the manga author and the animation studio, I only see the erosion of Japanese culture and death of what made it good because normalfags are so interested in it now.
Am I pedo for being attracted to nezuko?

>>221523780I hate MHA because Decuck is a fucking bitch. Literally gets bullied but doesn't put the shitter in his place. Names after the insult nickname he was given by bully. Bitch, you have One For All, no, Bakugo isn't amazing compared to that, AT ALL.
>>221561890The fujos are right, the only way it makes sense is if he has a crush on Bakugo.
>>221561941The worst part is how he consider Bacuckgo to be this amazing thing when his quirk is doomed like Endeavor, it's just high tier at best but it really can't touch OfA, AfO, Overhaul, Decay hell, it's not even on the same level as Nine's Quirk. It's just not that impressive compared to the REAL top tier quirks.
>>221561808Jeremy replying to himself is not uncommon anon.
>>221561808>>221562102that's how you cope?
>>221560063>Shouldn't they want to make tons of money?>evaKhara actually loses money from localization/translation (just like any other nip company) apart from the fact that Anno never gave a fuck about the west so gaijin are an after thought for them compared to the local market. If they were able to bring KNY here despite the pandemic it was because of it's insane popularity. For stuff like MiA, etc, think about this as a company, would it REALLY be worth it to go to all the trouble of showing their movies in countries where the most watched anime film is Pókemon? DB? the usual Disney shit?Is it really worth it to do it for a small group of people that may not even like the same genre of anime at all? What most international fans want is the BD anyways (and to rip it not many will actually buy it) and they won't release those sooner because it would hurt the local nip market if they can gain more from the cinemas

>>221522061Do you realize that all those theaters were half or even less of capacity and some were closed? To make you seethe more, kny box office would have been even higher if it met the same conditions.
>>221563204No, Tangerine's peak was growing a tumour and unleashing all his murderous intent towards Muzan.
>>221563821Actually Tanji's peak was inviting Gayuu to a soba eating contest

Wait there are people that think Deku is a pussy?How? Did we watch the same series?
>>221564066No no anon, his peak was telling Hantengu he would chase him to hell if need be.
>>221564165Yeah lmao, did you read it?Nigga would eat "ka-chans" cum for every meal if he could.
>>221563230ah, so you are ESL"you" can refer to more than one people, hope that helps hatefag

>>221564828Why are so many retards like you mindbroken by Deku?
Bitch who has been shitposting for over a year due to his shit series getting it's shit kicked in starts crying as soon as his little self insert is mentioned, fucking pathetic.
>>221522061KEK, this fucking destroyed them, good job dude.
I can't believe this incredibly successful series was created by a woman.
>>221514915I think I figured out why this fairly generic but has cool characters series is so popular.At this point I think people are just buying anything related to it because it’s a cultural phenomenon and those items can be worth a lot in the future.Imagine in 30 years from now you sell merch of Kimetsu from the era of its peak? You’d be very rich imo.
>>221564173No, it was trying to give Genya his tooth back

>>221565864Just like they changed the definition of racism?
>>221559335>made some big promises and failed to deliverAs opposed to JJK and KnY?
>>221565939NTA But yes, compare Dekus arms that will totally, this time for real, 100% not function if he keeps breaking them to let's say Todo from JJK. Once his hand is gone it's gone. Or Uzui from KnY once his arm is gone it's gone. Even Tanjiro who's arm "heals" is just a lump of dead flesh.
>>221566102So Aizawa's leg is gonna regrow? Twice and Midnight are gonna revive?And how is this worse than that time where Inosuke survived being impaled through his chest.
>>221566220>So Aizawa's leg is gonna regrow?God I hope not but knowing Hori him and Bunny might get prosthetics that will make it not matter anyways. But hopefully that won't happen so the stakes actually remain.>Twice and Midnight are gonna revive?Nope, but you can't expect the death of a villain and a coom bait character to really up the ante. That being said I loved how Twice was handled easily the best character in the series, he's better than quite a few characters from JJK and KnY>And how is this worse than that time where Inosuke survived being impaled through his chest.Inosuke was shown to have an extreme contoll over his body, being able to easily dislocate and relocate joints and muscles, we even saw foreshadowing of his heart being in the wrong side. Tho I agree the moment does leave a bad taste, but Bakugo being able to move around just a few days after getting impaled worse than Inosuke leaves a worse taste. At least Inosuke and Tanjiro were out for months.I'm not saying that KnY or JJK are perfect no series is, but they delivered more than MHA and I get sad over that since MHA had a lot of potential.
>>221560063>yeah i use torrenting and streaming sites for free, do you really expect me to purchase every single anime I watch? >wtf? Why are they catering to their paying loyal customers instead of me? you have no one to blame but yourself
>>221566768>but they delivered more than MHAYeah, no.
>>221567030>Yeah, no.Then please enlighten me anon, why is that? You can even use a few other examples if you don't feel comfortable with the points I brought up. It's fine, take your time friend.
MHA was interesting in the first 93 chapters but it never delivered anything. Deku remained a whiny little beta bitch and all of the side characters remained boring and with shitty superpowers. There isn't a single redeeming feature of MHA and it's only survived by riding on the coattails of amerilard shiteaters who love superhero garbage.
>>221566768This kills the herofag
Also, Deku's costume looks stupid.
>>221566768B...but I have stakes for real this time!
>>221566768killing herofags with facts and feelings
>>221514915Holy kek. MHAfags on suicide watch.
>>221557823No they don'tthe vast majority of kny box office is from people who've watched the anime because it's literally s1,5 and not some standalone non canon movieThat's why people actually give a shit and that's why they went to see it, that was your last cope anon
>>221519741Anon, go watch NOBODY. It's pretty comfy.
>>221515041it does though, the us falls and the global economy falls
>>221566768Stop it anon he will kill himself

>>221567747Oh yeah it's an extreme slow burn, that's part of the reason of why I am disappointed but I've invested this much time into it so I might as well finish, + my gf likes it.
>>221567792careful now anon he might start talking shit about how many theaters played it in opening week lmao.
>>221567829>Oh yeah it's an extreme slow burnthis implies it will go all out in stakes.
>>221567932Well we won't know until it's over. MHA is the biggest disappointment I've watched / read in a long time but it still has given me a few moments to genuinely enjoy it brought me and my girl close during quarantine since we read it together.I for some reason can't just give up on it, I still cling to some hope that it will be alright again. But in saying that I don't think it will ever come close to how good KnY is. JJK also remains to be seen since it's not over yet.
>>221524658>DEMON SLAYER IS ONLY POPULAR BECAUSE OF UFOTABLEThat's just a fact. The whole hype around it was because of ep 19 which had the best animation. No one in the west cared about it before the anime (CSM is popular without one) and in Japan it only had the crazy number sales after the anime. Stop rejecting reality.
>>221568222Fuck Mha. It's a show for faggot but the KNY is no different. Fucking kiddie tier ending.
>>221566768>God I hope notSo you agree that MHA has stakes, thanks.> but you can't expect the death of a villainSo you are just gonna ignore that he's one of the most loved characters?>and a coom bait characterTry saying "one of the teachers">Inosuke was shown to have an extreme contoll over his body, being able to easily dislocate and relocate joints and muscles, we even saw foreshadowing of his heart being in the wrong side.Ahh the old cope, "dude he's very agile, so it actually makes sense that he can move his organs"
>>221542705He's also the hatefag in bnha threads
>>221568180>was because of ep 19Not that anon but as you said it, it's ep 19. Would you really watch 18 episodes just to watch ep 19 and see what the hype was about? What if you watch the first eps and don't like the series at all? Would you still keep watching to see what ep 19 was all about?
>>221568180>No one in the west cared about it before the animeI did so you are wrong
>>221522061Damn Anon. Don't own others so hard like this.
>>221561808the problem is theres so many bullshit its unbelievable,fucking retard didn't even bother to check the theater numbers
>>221568180>CSM is popular without oneNever heard of it until shonenshitters kept spamming it on /a/. Looks gay as fuck, just a dude with gardening tool for a head.
>>221568180This. Anyone who says otherwise are delusional. Kimetsu no Yaiba sold as badly as Black Clover did before it got an anime, and episode 19 skyrocketed its popularity in similar vein as Mappa did to Jujutsu Kaisen. Ufotable carried what is really a mediocre series from crashing.
>>221568337People got into it after it trended on Twitter after ep 19 and ninja shilled it. Before that it got the treatment of a typical seasonal show.
>ip didn't increasekek
>>221568294>agilenot him but the word you want is closer to "flexible"inosuke's whole "power" is related to his body and in the 5 senses group, he's the sense of "touch" it may feel like a bit too much, but there's at least an expectation that if someone if someone is able to do that it is inosukehad this happened but with zenitsu instead, it wouldn't have been acceptable at all
>>221568521what are the actual numbers then
>>221568600you narrowed it down to one of the 150 people who have already posted continuing a discussion, congrats brainlet
>>221568540Where do expect to hear about it exactly?https://youtu.be/VPB_J6Egi28https://youtu.be/s28Ho7clij0https://youtu.be/cVjSw5pg_UM
>>221568577Again, it's ep 19. Would you just sit through 18 episodes even if you dislike the story? Something has to be interesting for you about the story to keep watching it until you reach that episode. Many people saw ep 19, watched it and didn't like the anime so they didn't watch more than 3 episodes, they just rewatched that scene and moved on
>>221568542>Ufotable carried>Anime is an ad for the manga>As anime airs, manga sales go up>Anime ends, manga sales still go upSo Ufotable did it's job? You know that's the main point of an anime based on something still ongoing right?
>>221568741You say this as if people don't watch things just so they can keep up with what's trendy and part of the cultural conversation without knowing if they really like it.
>>221568668it was at 1600 theaters first weekend,with only one imax slothttps://twitter.com/BORReport/status/1386734478568005633second weekend was at 1905 with more imax slotshttps://twitter.com/BORReport/status/1388871108464545798they simply saw the demand and increased it a few hundred. mortal kombat also increasd from 3071 to 3114 theatersas for MHA i don't give enough of a fuck to backtrack and gather box office from back then
>>221568180Funny part is if KnY was so good, it could have at least improved Weekly Shonen Jump's circulation a tiny bit. Fact is, it really isn't good enough to get people to buy the magazine week in and week out.Jump's weekly circulation was 6.5 million or so when Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk were serialized. THAT many people bought Jump every single week to read Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk. Meanwhile shit like KnY couldn't even give Jump even a minor bump in circulation. In fact, numbers dropped again in 2020 from 1.6 million to 1.5 million.
>>221568294Anon, buddy now you are cherry picking. read my full post. I do think that the last showdown with Shiggy actually introduced some stakes, I never said that MHA never had stakes I said that they failed to deliver many times. Witch I provided examples in the post.I did not ignore anything when it came to Twice? He is my favorite character and a great example of a genuinely good character. But in the grand scope of the series his death would be equivalent to I guess Rui or maybe Enmu, his death motivated Toga who has not gotten a whole lot of character with the exception to her relationship with Twice and crush on Deku, other than that what did his death really bring? It was a satisfying conclusion to his arc and maybe something for Toga to become more than she is currently but nothing has yet happened with that. Also having her fight over a fucking keyring or phonestrap or whatever dumb shit it was really undermined his death.Sorry that I and a lot of others have not formed whatever bond you have with midnight to me just like the bunny she was never much more than a coom bait. But if you did care that much for her then you have the right to feel hurt when she died. I guess I can compare that to Rengoku, I never felt anything for him either. Now a good example of a teacher character dying that would be Nanami from JJK.How is "being very agile" equivalent to being able to dislocated not only joins but muscles? And why do you choose to ignore the foreshadowing of his heart being placed in the right side of his chest?You sound very upset anon, take a breather alright, calm down and take your time with a response.
>>221569072you are not special anon
>>221569148Why would someone waste money to buy the magazine when they could just buy the tanks of the series they actually care about
>>221569148>1.6 million to 1.5 milliondigital sales included?
>>221569148good bait anon
>>221569148Dude no one's buying your circulation argument. It's completely irrelevant when there's the monstrous 80 million copies sold in a single year and the record breaking movie. No reads the main magazine anymore so there is no new series that will ever give it the rise in circulation that Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk did.
>>221569148It did bump it a little, the issue of it's final chapter sold out. Also >Digital era
>>221569148Why are DBspics like this?
>>221568542Nop, kny was starting to sell well when the anime started, kill yourself.
>>221514915I hate MHA more than KnY, but the soulless NPCs losing their minds over this shit movie are pathetic.I haven't even seen the MHA movie, but I'm pretty sure it's the same thematically, just less animated.
>>2215696564.5M sold a month before the anime ^
>>2215696994.5 mil nice fucking numbers
What's your expectations for uzui gaiden?
>>221567030>>221567214Are you ok anon? It's been an hour, don't mean to rush you though. I'm sure you will come with some interesting arguments!
>>221569777Yeah, from 4.5 m to fucking 150 m.
>>221569349>No reads the main magazine anymore so there is no new series that will ever give it the rise in circulation that Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk did.One Piece at least improved Not him, but that's not true. One Piece at least improved the circulation a little bit unlike Demon Slayer back circa 2008 to 2011. This is not the first time, it also did it back in 1998 to 2000, and this was not long after both Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk ended, and Jump's popularity declining as an after-effect. The people who say Ufotable carried Demon Slayer are completely right. Without the anime, Demon Slayer was barely above Black Clover. The success was a fluke.
>>221560739What do you think?
>>221569902>150Anon... wikipedia has not been updated for a few months you need to add another 5 mil.But also if the anime was the reason for the success how come people started buying loads of the manga once the anime ended? I mean of they only liked the anime they would wait for the movie right? It was announced in the last episode of the show so there was no chance people were worried over not getting a continuation.The anime did a great job of advertising the excellent manga! Since people obviously love it for the story.
>>221570052If you really want to use One Piece as a modern example, increasing the circulation by a 100k before going back to decline in a year or two and staying in that decline until present day is absolutely not an improvement. And again, no one reads the magazine anymore so it's irrelevant to even use that as an anti-feat. It's tantamount to saying "well Demon Slayer couldn't bring my dead relatives back!"
>>221569166>Witch I provided examples in the post.The only example you provided is Bakugo which is still resting on an hospital, I don't see how the stakes are much different when the first we saw of Inosuke after the stabbing is pic related, the only difference is the arbitrary time the authors said that they had been resting.>his death would be equivalent to I guess Rui or maybe Enmuah yes, comparing a character we've been following and grown attached for hundred of characters to some one arc villains.>Sorry that I and a lot of others have not formed whatever bond you have with midnight to me just like the bunny she was never much more than a coom bait.It affects the characters on the story to have one of the teachers they loved die, why don't you understand that>How is "being very agile" equivalent to being able to dislocated not only joins but muscles?Is that the equivalent of being able to move your organs around>And why do you choose to ignore the foreshadowing of his heart being placed in the right side of his chest?I don't see why that means he should be able to move his organs.>You sound very upset anon, take a breather alright, calm down and take your time with a response.You sound like a chuuni saying that
>>221570052Oh wise anon, why are they buying so many volumes then? Even after the anime ended? Why not just buy the blueray of the first season and the movie and then wait for the rest?
Memes aside, is it going to pass Mewtwo's box office or flame out beforehand?
>>221570281Wait is it currently 155? I thought the last update was in February. Also, any current series won't do this:https://youtu.be/A1-DVH2PI2s yeah, such a forgettable and bad series.
>>221570455It's likely to become 2nd and stay there.
>>221570100i think all healthy males are pedophiles to some extent.the only reason wanting to fuck teenagers is 'wrong' now is because of feminists and jews.
>>221570458based salaryman reading the ending on the train because he couldn't wait
>>221515226He ment to say only 5% died of solely of covid
>>221570458This is honestly making me seethe. All those people in line for a manga with such ugly ass art. How is Japan not embarrassed as a society?
>>221570793Japan loved OPM and that has shit art, but the west also loves it so I guess both are retarded. And I guess care more about the story than it looking like a masterpiece
>>221570458desu you can't decide what becomes popular, KNY could have had a shitty anime and end it's run as a 10 million seller and noone would be surprised, and who knows how many manga out there have the potential to become a KNY given similar circumstances.
>>221569300The magazine costs ¥250 (~$2) for what, 20 different manga?
>>221569148This. Jump was a phenomenon during the first half of the nineties. They had Dragon Ball, Slam Dunk, Yu Yu Hakusho, City Hunter and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (Part 3, 4 and 5) among a lot of other amazing stuff that made sales absolutely insane. After those titles ended, it was all downhill from there. Kubo once said in an interview with Horikoshi that his generation worried they couldn't live up to the Golden Age they grew up reading, and you can see. Just compare Jump's sales now compared to back then, they're laughable:>Jump suffered a half million drop to 1996 after Dragon Ball ended in 1995 and when Slam Dunk ended in 1996, there's a two million drop to 1997, the year One Piece started and sales kept dropping to the point where Weekly Shonen Magazine, their main rival, overtook them in sales in the wake of Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk's absence. This is called the "Dark Age" of Jump by the Japanese>2002 was the first time Jump outsold Magazine, often attributed to One Piece's Skypiea Arc>Jump and Magazine struggled for supremacy for the next 3 years, but since 2005, Jump pretty much always outsold Magazine.
>>221570336>Bakugo which is still resting on an hospitalIf he stays there for as long as Inosuke then yeah it will have had repercussions. The time is not arbitrary since currently in MHA and there are people that will lose their lives and people that Bakugo could have saved. It's the same with Inosuke, when he is out of commission there are people who could have been saved by him from the demons.>ah yes, comparing a character we've been following and grown attached for hundred of characters to some one arc villains.Anon you are speed reading again, I did not compare them in that way emotionally of course Twice should leave more of an impact compared to Rui and Enmu. But in the fight of Heroes and Villains him dying is the same for AFO as Rui dying was for Muzan, not a whole lot.>It affects the characters on the story to have one of the teachers they loved die, why don't you understand thatSince these characters have despite being a part of the story for almost 300 chapters left an inpact. Most of class one could be removed and the story would not change. This is the problem with character bloat. But to your credit they might do something. But again that has yet to actually happen.>Is that the equivalent of being able to move your organs aroundAgain he can dislocate not only his joins BUT HIS MUSCLES, that means that he could strain and relax muscles to such efficiency that shifting the position of an organ would not be outside the real of possibility. Also again him having his heart in the right side of his chest was also foreshadowed.I don't care if I sound like a "chuuni" you sounded close to a panic attack take care of yourself anon Deku would be sad if you had a breakdown.
>>221570336Wait, there are people who actually gave a shit about Midnight as a character?
>>221570989The starts aligned for Gotouge. I'm not a big fan of kny but when I was thinking about the movie the other day, I realized how well this short arc translated into a movie despite not being made with the thought of it becoming a movie in mind. I talking about the structure of the story and sequence of events, not about if it's effective or not.Thematically, all Ufotable had to do to make this story it's own experience was add little scene (that I believe happens sometime later in the manga) about the leader of the Pillars, talking about how they never give up until the end, to then end with the death of someone who didn't give up until the end and the leader talking about that.
>>221571515No, that was in the same chapter as his death
>>221515041For now it does, but once China wipes out India, it's game over.If pajeets weren't so fucking retarded, and actually utilized their retarded 2 billion population, maybe they could have been able to compete.
>>221571676What was it?
>>221571683Its about the long game retard. China is a paper tiger with a demographic and resource crisis.Once the majority of chinks become too old to work and hundreds of millions are displaced from lack of water and housing, India will swoop in and replace them as the regional hegemon.
>>221559460weebs look at deku and think "wow, literally me, I was bullied too".weebs look at tengerine and think "man, I hope I could be like that, I will try to be a better person today".
>>221568180seethe and cope
>>221532414That scene is so overly dramatic it makes my mom's soap operas look like SoL anime.>"I'll regret that day that will never really stand out compared to literally every other day in my life"Deku's such a drama queen.
>>221559780I love that the powerlevels in kny are so straightforward and brutality-related."see, at this point in the story character A could not decapitate character B yet".
>>221571676Btw if this is about Kagaya, I meant that part where he visits the graves of the dead demon slayers, wasn't that mentioned later in the manga?
>>221561365>some webms from Saber Alter vs Rider that looked way better.Get that Michael Bay shit out of here.HF had the worst Fate fights. Lancer vs Saber in Fate/Zero shits all over those explosion-fests.
>>221572056For the humans, but in the case of the demons powerlevels are fucked because they almost never use everything they have. Koku would have beaten the lineup against him without issue if he wasn't holding onto his pride and went full porcupine sword cannon
The first volume after the anime was 17 and it sold 750k first month.
>>221568180Good animation alone does not cause an explosion of popularity to the level KnY reached, look at Mob, OPM and probably some sports anime with good animation that haven't reached half of Kimetsu's popularity.MHA itself had good animated episodes.
>>221572148ufo really didn't do Fate justice.
>>221572208>if he wasn't holding onto his prideYou'll see, if the demons didn't have any personality and were just monsters then they would be very veeeeeeeery retarded. At least this way I can say Koku didn't go all out because of his pride, which is connected to his character.
>>221563204>hantengu fight>peak tangerinebruh, for our boy, this was a normal tuesday night.
>>221522061>mha was against some weird ass new version of IM, a mascot on life support only legit autist and furried care about and gone with the wind?>still makes very little moneyi dont get it
>>221571896demographic and resource crisis?>literally has a slave labor force>colonizing Africa and draining its resources>citizens going to other countries and slowly taking up industries from tech, to medicine, to businesses every generation>creeping into US media and pushing for more "muh asian representation" which mostly consists of chinese or part chinese actors winning awardsSorry pajeet, but India can't compete at all. All those who leave that shithole, never want to return to it or see it improve. India would rather sell it's land and it's people to foreigners. including China.
>>221561365same man i have no idea how people like this show that much. the first 6 ep are absolute dog shit desu. Some of the animation in the show is absolute trash and the story is average at best.>Saber Alter vs Rider that looked way betterMan just look at the KYK movies they are almost 2 decades old they still look awesome.
>>221525961I hate Deku so much that it's unreal
>>221572753>muh slave labor force>muh africaEnjoy your collapse by 2040, Chang
>>221565205>fullmetal>kimetsuwomen literally write good shonen because when their editors suggest they create new enemies for a new arc, they scoff at them with a puzzled look "uh, where were these new enemies hiding before, behind a tree or something?"
>>221567030>>221567214Anon you've been gone for two hours now I'll take that as you realizing were I was coming from and reevaluating the "stakes" of MHA.
>>221565939>kimetsu>not delivering on its promisesit´s the shonen with the most payoffs and high stakes since Stone Ocean ended in 2003.
>>221572056>I love that the powerlevels in kny are so straightforward and brutality-related.The lack of soul...........
>>221565205?? The author is clearly male.
>>221572753>but India can't compete at allthis is so true man Asian countries have the cultural background to be able to make the sacrifices needed for them to succeed or recover from major conflicts. India on the other hand has none of it there whole mentality is very different form the chinese koreans or japanese. Hell even best korea has better chances for out preforming the indians economically given the chance
>>221573200The butterfly girls' arcs make me think it's a woman because a man wouldn't be able to give female characters normal motivations for their actions
>>221565205Its not, a woman couldn't write male characters like Akaza.
>>221557163B-but /a/ told me everyone hated KnY!
>>221558581Yeah can’t complain
Am I the only one who wishes he could get himself to like Kimetsu no Yaiba? All my real life friends who like anime think it's the best anime ever made (or at least one of them) and are losing their minds over it and over the movie. I tried many times to like it, and it sounds good based on what I read on the wiki about the manga, but everything the anime showed so far is just so..... bland....... and boring.......... as fuck.It's like Domino's pizza. I keep ordering it once every month or two, because it looks so good on the pictures, it sounds so good when I read the description, it smells so good when I open it, but when I start eating it, I get disappointed, and when I finish it I feel sick in the stomach and tell myself I'm never gonna order Domino's pizza again.
>>221568180>person hears about episode 19 in social media>watches every single episode of the anime>likes it>buys every single volume of the manga>recommends it to their friends>they do the samebased kimetsu. its content was good enough to make great use of an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.what an interesting way for a franchise to reach mass popularity, it really adds to the legend. just like tangerine´s life changed forever in a single day when his family was attacked my muzan, the author´s life was changed forever in a single day when episode 19 aired.very beautiful, gonna tell my kids about this.thanks, anon.
>>221573346Hori would make Kanao fight Nakime since she stole Tanjiros yukata.
>>221558581It's as good as most movies based on an anime series.
>>221573530If you don't like it anon then you don't like it. Your friends obviously have a different taste than you, you don't have to feel bad over being in a small minority. Just watch some other anime with your anime watching friends. What are some shows you like, I could give you a few recs based on your taste.
>>221514915puzzle and dragons bros...
>>221570100look at her go!
>>221573389>Akaza>Kinda gay for Rengoku as a demon>Backstory is a "what if" version of Rengoku's core motivation>Respects women>Look at all these cool martial arts teachings and shit>Hakuji was a good boy doing the best he could with what he had>Only cares about his waifu aka the yumes self insertIt's a woman
>>221573530>Am I the only one who wishes he could get himself to like Kimetsu no Yaibasame here man >are losing their minds over it and over the movieits prob cos they haven't seen a lot of anime >but everything the anime showed so far is just so..... bland....... and boring.......... as fuck.i forced my self to watch the show cos of all the hype it was painful to go true it all
>>221573248It's literally because its people refuse to evolve and adapt. Everything is predetermined based on your caste, skin color, and what district you were born in. They missed out on properly industrializing, or rather they just decided to skip the whole process and double down on their retarded cultural identity once the Brits decided they were tired of the street shitters. That screenshot of the chang talking about Africans not learning shit from their colonizers apply to India.
>>221560739No you are doing what most /a/nons do and misinterpret your innate male little sister/daughter love instincts as sexual or pedophilic. Do I want to hug nezuko ? Yes. Do you literally want to violate her then well okay then you are a pedo
>>221571974at the time it was written, it was meant to be suspenseful and foreshadow a tragic event.then nothing happened.
>>221573972I want to fuck Nezuko but I'm also a normal heterosexual male.
>>221573530>I tried many times to like it>>221573913>i forced my self to watch the show cos of all the hype it was painful to go true it allYou are both retarded. If you don't like something you just don't like it. I think people like you two that force themselves to have a bad time are pathetic. Go get some personality
>>221574010Pedophilia, also spelled paedophilia, also called pedophilic disorder or pedophilia disorder, in conventional usage, a psychosexual disorder, generally affecting adults, characterized by sexual interest in prepubescent children or attempts to engage in sexual acts with prepubescent children.If you fit into this then yes, but anon she is a cartoon.
>>221574135Imagine the things you could do with smol Nezuko.
>>221572208>and went full porcupine sword cannonwe have no evidence that his later form was not him merely evolving during the fight, since Akaza and Douma did not show similar transformations. Koku´s biggest mistake was understimating Mui and Genya.
>>221572208anon, the demons are the easiest to rank, they´re all stronger than the humans and are ranked with numbers in their eyes.....
>>221573543>>221573346There's a thing I love about Kanao's arc. It's that when she's talking about how she improved emotionally, she says "my friends" and Tanjiro, despite being a big part of the reason she starts to change, doesn't get a special mention or a special drawing pointing out to that scene with him and the coin. Her arc is about her sisters and friendships, not just the MC
>>221573155>he doesn´t like early Jojo were every arc was "if tne enemy gets a good hit in, the hero is dead"shitty taste
>>221572208Except Akaza who may have overcome Douma at the end the demons are clearly ranked.
>>221573919>It's literally because its people refuse to evolve and adaptyeah thats true > Everything is predetermined based on your caste, skin color, and what district you were born incorruption is there main problem and leaching form there own parents for to long whit out any goal to create any thing by them self's. No one wants to deal whit indian companies do to them having a high likely hood of scamming you or trying to fuck you over at high level. China does this to patients and trade mark level but they do it in a smart way so it makes it more acceptable to some large companies.basicly no manufacturing industry no growth the us and the eu will face the same issue in the future.
>>221573530if you don´t like it, you don´t like it.that´s okay, it happens.props to you for making an honest attempt at understanding the hype instead of shitposting about it.
>>221574455Sometimes I really wish Kimetsu was longer, I just wish we could have seen more of characters like her and Obanai. But few shows manage to have such satisfying conclusions to character arcs.
>>221573697Well, when it comes to non-shonen, there's lots and lots of anime I still have on my to watch list.But when it comes to shonen only, I get the feeling that I've basically seen everything good already.>10/10Hunter x Hunter (manga, the anime doesn't deserve the same rating, but I'd give it at least a 9 anyway)Diamond is Unbreakable (+manga)>9/10FMA:B (+manga)>8/10YYH (anime only)Golden Wind (anime, manga is a 7 tops)>7/10Stardust Crusaders/2nd season (manga is a 6/10)Mob Psycho 100Dororo>6/10JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (anime, manga - Phantom Blood is a 3/10, Battle Tendency is a 9/10)Mob Psycho 100 IIBlood Blockade Battlefront & BeyondFullmetal Alchemist (2003 anime)>5/10Stardust Crusaders/1st seasonNGE (for reference, basically a shonen if it was based on a manga)>4/10Naruto (anime only, but specifically the version that had all the filler cut out)Naruto: Shippuden (same as above)SnK 1st season (manga overall is a 1/10)MHA 1st season (manga overall is a 2/10)KnY 1st seasonVinland Saga 1st season (manga overall is a 2/10)>3/10KnY: Mugen TrainBlood Blockade BattlefrontSnK 2nd seasonMHA 2nd seasonBlack CloverDr. Stone 1st season>2/10One PieceMHA (manga)DBZYugioh DMSnK 3rd seasonMHA 3rd season>1/10all Evangelion rebuild movies, for referenceShield HeroTPNSnK (manga)MHA 4th season>0/10Jujutsu Kaisen 1st season (soulless)Don't think I forgot anything important.
>>221574479>>he doesn´t like early Jojo were every arc was "if tne enemy gets a good hit in, the hero is dead">things that never happenedThe only character who died after one hit abruptly was Will Zeppeli, even Ceasar lasted longer
>>221574727it´s the eternal dilenma. this was such a great ride that did not overstay its welcome.extra arcs could have diluted its overall quality.but I also would have liked for it to have, say, 250 chapters instead of 205.
>>221574819Ceasar was a dead man the moment darude sandstorm connected.
>>221574923He still got an entire episode for his fight instead of dying like a bitch like his grandpa
>kimetsu threads reaching bump limit every single day>even bait threads turn into behemoths with plenty of comfy discussionthis is really /ourtime/, kimetsumoms.
>>221574727>>221574849I hope Ufo adds some stuff, it doesn't even have to be original they can base it on the info we had from the databooks and the extras on the manga. At least I hope it moves stuff around a bit, like make some scenes with Shinobu and Inosuke interacting more
>>221574984that´s the point, nobody likes edgy "the heroes drop like flies" bullshit for shock value, Ceasar fought bravely before going down.even Will had an heroic sacrifice, he wasn´t eaten by a titan just to show titans are scary like SnK would have done.
>>221574739For Shonen maybe a few sports manga since that seems to be the biggest sub genre you've not interacted with a lot. And for that I'd recommend Slam dunk, and maybe Blue lock. Blue lock is not deep at all when it comes to characters but it's stupid fun.Overall I'll recommend REAL (pic related) a story about a few individuals coming to terms with injuries and trauma in their lives and their connection to the sport they love.
>>221575037as long as the croc is okay with it.>make some scenes with Shinobu and Inosuke interacting moreI want this very much.
>>221575007It's not just moms kimetsu friend we have global coverage and reach every demographic in both genders we are the kimetsupeople.
>>221574739where the fuck are Slam Dunk, Haikyuu, Assassination Classroom and Rurouni Kenshin?
>>221534094>asspull fanfic bullshit.tahts what most anime movies are desu. Idk if you have seen one piece stampede but its literally a kindergartener jamming all their favorite one piece action figures together, regardless of plot
>>221575214>we are the kimetsupeople.beautiful.
>>221575343I miss movies/ovas like Saint Seiya, some of the stories were better than canon arc just for the premises alone.
>>221575439Some of the dbz ones were really fun too. Them basically remaking broly and fusion reborn shows just how great some of those concepts were
>>221575133>>221575313Not really big on sports shonen. I only watched Captain Tsubasa as a kid. I find it hard to empathize/care about sports shonen about a sport I don't like (which is almost all of them).>Assassination ClassroomDon't have high expectation from this one, heard it compared to HeroAca.>Rurouni KenshinDidn't know that was a shonen, had it in the back of my mind for years, guess I'll check it.
>>221575612>heard it compared to HeroAca.I found it more satisfying than HeroAca, which I dropped after Stain.
>>221574216"Evolving" would be the word to use for his head regen scorpion form. Him sticking swords out of his body is the simplest use of his blood tech there is
>>221575612That why I recommended REAL over stuff like Slam dunk and Blue lock it focuses a lot more on character journeys rather than the game itself. I based it mostly on your list since it seems you like character focused stories. And REAL is not a shounen.
