im into older mang....

d-d-d-dumbass 03-29-2007 10:07 AM
and it seems that everyone i speak with has no idea what i am talking about. like Here is Greenwood or Basara, or Wild Act, or From Far Away (which isnt really that old) or the Hino Horror collection.

and its dissapointing, yet relieving at the same time.
does anyone know what im talking about?

Do you mean manga that is chronologically old, like Astro Boy, or was just published in English a long time ago?

My favorite manga EVAR is old in both those respects... Black Jack. It's an old Viz publication, back when the mangas weren't flipped and the books were larger dimensions than they usually are now. But it debuted in Japan in the 1970s. So it's pretty old.

i suppose i mean chronologically old.

Well, in that case, put me down for anything by Tezuka! Pleased

In speaking of old manga, does anyone know anything about the Rose of Versailles manga? I like the anime alright, but I'm wondering if the manga's better...

I read Cyborg 009...

Astro Boy too. I guess Dragonball is old too. Made in the 80s.

My favorite is Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (big shocker, no?). I like Tezuka also.

So is manga the same thing as a comic book?
d-d-d-dumbass 03-30-2007 09:57 AM

I think Manga is the japanse word for "Comic" or somthing like that. Anime is just short for animation, with an "e" at then end. Since it's japanese. Most call it by it's original name then comic book.

Astro Boy, Goldorak, Saint Seiya, Albator (= Captain Haruka), Bioman (not an anime), etc ... were my favorite animes. Pleased

Check out some of Go Nagai's TV series.

Devilman, Mazinger Z, Cutie Honey, and Dororon Enma-kun.

If you like Magical Girls I suggest...

Sally the Witch, Majokko Megu, Cutie Honey, and Tokimeki Tonight.

It is strange, I have never even heard anything about those animes you are talking about ... Confused

You don't live in Europe do you ? We have other animes. Too bad, except dragon Ball, Edgar, Captain Herlock ...
Tickle Tickle 03-31-2007 12:35 PM
Are you talking to me? No, I don't live in Europe. Though most of the series I've lisited were released in European countires... just under different names.

Captain Haruka ...

Urusei f*cking Yatsura, man. XD That's like... my childhood right there. Also, interestingly, it apparently ran on public television in North America for a time in the 90s(? I think). I never saw it there, though.
