One thing I have always, always loved is that the English translation of TWGOK used “Neener neener” of all things as a translation in one of the chapters. I hadn’t heard the phrase in YEARS so I sat there the first time I read it like

“wh       what???? does that MEAN??????”

this is another one of those “mostly for fun” strips :x

Final thoughts on Gangsta and Studio Manglobe:

Despite starting off very promising, Gangsta’s finale has rung throughout the anime community as the final death knell of Studio Manglobe. As the series progressed, it became apparent Manglobe was unable to continue producing the high-octane action the first four episodes gave us. The animation quality continued to dip and the story became more erratic before inconclusively signing off in the middle of an arc. At the time of this posting, Manglobe employees have stated that the studio has gone bankrupt and are now seeking work.

Over the course of 11 years, Manglobe mantra has always been about experimentation and western appeal. Their first and most popular work among western audiences, Samurai Champloo, personifies this quality best. Other shows like Ergo Proxy and Michiko to Hatchin continued this trend over the years despite financial failure after failure. Out of 16 series, only one broke 4,000 units sold. Many of these shows remain as some of my most memorable anime experiences. And I hope that they will be remembered long after Manglobe closes its doors.

Compiling the girls again in one pic!

I’m officially over drawing the TWGOK girls. I know there are still some girls left, but uhhh…I thought I have to move on to newer pieces of drawings because my art blog is like filled with these girls(I’m so sorry ;_;), maybe I’ll draw them in the future. Nevertheless, I have fun drawing all of them and I learned some few things.

Someday, I’m going to draw them better than this!

They went to the gym after this

…But no seriously, I was just WAITING for a joke somewhere where Keima didn’t have as much trouble with a physical thing as usual (like laps in gym or something) and he + everyone are amazed.

Simply amazing manga that never got an anime adaption. Or, amazing manga that got crappy adaptions.

07 Ghost

Pandora Hearts

XXXHolic

Tsubasa Resovoir Chronicle (the OVAs are the only redeemable part of the anime honestly)

DNAngel (though at least the anime has an ending)

Tokyo Ghoul (root A in particular)

Gakuen Alice

Yureka (aka Id_Entity)

Witch Hunter

Seiyuu-Ka!

The World God Only Knows 

D. Gray-man

Feel free to add more! Just make sure as you add the manga that it’s among your favorites, 10/10 for plot and everything else, no adaption in the works. 

And by crappy anime adaptions I mean like the difference between the two series is major and/or the anime never even got to the best part. Also make sure you don’t put one down that has an ongoing anime or has an anime in the works. A second season in the works is kinda iffy…just use the best judgement I guess. For example, D. Gray-man is kinda iffy. It had a LOT of filler but otherwise was adapted pretty well. But almost half the series was filler so…
