      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I must say that I am having a tough time really enjoying it. The art does not speak to me, the story is meh..... Till now I am really not at all interested, and am having a tough time finishing it.
      The characters are just....not fun, not what I am really sitting at the edge of my couch. The story is not the good "confusing". And with this I do not mean, not really confusingbut feels confusing, but it just makes poor use of this confuseness.
      For now, I am bored with it.....

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I read about 6 of the chapters out of the 17 and I was lost the whole time. Seemed like some flash backs happened before I was aware, then it went to its normal story.
      I wasn't a huge fan of the anime because mechs aren't really my thing. Tried to give the manga a go but I'm not really in the mood to finish it. I have no idea what's really gone in the story for a minute.

      I agree that the art style just doesnt resonate with me. I dislike the harsh lines and sharpness.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I have to say I am also getting lost now too, Ive read a few more chapters and sometimes I find Im staring at the same panel for a while as I have no idea what Im looking at.

      How are people getting on in general? has anyone finished, or given up completely?

      I've given up completely, sorry. This just doesn't agree with me.

      How does it compare to the anime? (if you've watched it)

      I have dropped this as far as the book club is concerned. I will someday finish it just to give it the fairest chance possible. This is because of how much I love the anime.


      How does it compare to the anime? (if you've watched it)

      It compares poorly. The story seems to jump around. I often find myself wondering what is going on. But not in the good way the anime did. Two new seasons for the anime are coming out by the way.


      Would you recommend it?

      I would recommend it to fans of the anime but let them know it is not as good.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I'm still reading but I'll probably drop it sometime soon. I didn't really enjoy the Anime, but I did enjoy the manga more. I would still reccommend it to someone, but I'd always include a disclaimer that they might be put off by the art. Although the art is by no means the worst that I've seen.

      So death, the most terrifying of ills, is nothing to us, since so long as we exist, death is not with us; but when death comes, then we do not exist. It does not then concern either the living or the dead, since the former it is not, and the latter are no more.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I have dropped it....generally I want to and five mangas a long time-chance, but this one not. Although the art style is not bad, I just do not find it fitting. I love how the landscapes are drawn, but for a manga, for a story, not to my liking. I just cannot enjoy it for the reading.
      The story, as I mentioned before, is just not interesting. I have set the anime on my to watch-list due to most comments here. So maybe that one will be better. I think I would recommend to friends that might be interested on such types of mangas, but I would definitely tell them my opinion about it.
      I am sure ready to try a new one!

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      As I've said before, I've dropped the manga because I found that while unique and interesting, the art style doesn't appeal to me. I got kind of sick of it and how jumpy the entire manga seemed to be. It gave me a heacache and it was hard to keep track of what was happening and why. Usually I'm able to stick to a manga to give it a fair chance... but this was... too much of headache tbh. I wouldn't recommend it.

      Just can't get into it. I think this is mostly because I saw the anime first.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I read the first part of the manga but didnt read the second but i liked the anime better.

      Faithful to the Anime then! (Or the anime faithful to the manga)
