Have you ever read a manga or manwha and regretted reading it? Maybe it was so terrible or so fucked up that you had to stop reading it. You've regretted reading it ever since then. List the manga or manwha down and explain why you regret reading it.


Enjoy!!!

I recently read through the Big Order manga after watching the anime, because I was curious how much of the bad was the result of a shoddy adaptation and how much was the source material.

Needless to say it was aaaalll the source material. I went in with absolutely zero expectations, and I still came out feeling like I wasted my attention and time. It's actually EXPANDED on the badness by continuing the story.

-- Sensei no Okiniiri: Rape and NTR and just when you think it's found a happy place, it all happens again.

-- Love Attack. Starts wonderfully. Then it got worse. And worse. And worse. Until eventually I hated the characters that I had started out loving. I regret reading beyond Vol 2.

Sadly i remember the first time i read Dead Tube, which was quite boring and was full of petty gore and a shit tone of unappealing nudity. The plot was nonexistent, it was just about filming fucked up shit that was sometimes humorous in a terrible way. I dropped it shortly after the first few chapters, one of the first "newer horror" mangas i've read and abandoned shortly after picking it up.

Another one that is more Yandere-ish that wasn't very good was Uwakoi, which i don't have much to say about it except that it'll be difficult for most to enjoy the manga without torching the damn thing. Though i'm sure some of these might cater towards someones tastes, in which case, i hope whoever that may be will enjoy it. I never plan on picking those 2 mangas up, and there are more on my list that i can't remember atm.

Fairy Tail. Case & point, I cannot stand the way Mashima writes his story. It was great in the beginning, what w/ the Phantom Lord, Tower of Heaven and Oracion Seis arcs, but ever since then, it's been on a slow decline in quality. It's almost the same crap every time, "I can't let my friends down, gets random friendship power up, I did it!" That's unfortunately almost the same end game for every fight in this manga. So much, that Erza Scarlet's character has been ruined by this Deus Ex Machina. It's how the infamous "Because she's Erza!" meme started. The one shot fights are terribly written as well (anyone remember the God of War and Neinhart events?). The fights overall aren't drawn that well too, and if it isn't a friendship ass pull that wins, it's another BS reason why our heroes win (Sting vs Larcade was utterly disappointing). Compared to other Shonen manga, Fairy Tail lacks hard in the fighting category. Don't even get me started on the fake deaths...Jiminy Christmas. How many times has Mashima written a chapter where a character "supposedly" dies, and then brings him/her back the very next chapter or a few chapters down the line? This has gotten so bad that one of his recent fake deaths went against the rules of his own story! I'll include a spoiler tag in case you're curious to what I'm referring to.



I could go on and on about how much I regret reading this sub par manga, but at the end of the day, the story is I guess engaging enough to keep me reading until the very end. It's definitely not Hunter x Hunter or One Piece level of story telling, but it's something. I'll tell you right now if the story was utter trash, I would have dropped this a long time ago. At the very least, there's a good chance I'll never buy the volumes. I will continue reading chapters here on Crunchyroll until the manga comes to an end and I will never speak of Fairy Tail again. Mashima really needs to hit it home with how he ends it because if he doesn't and it ends up sucking, it won't leave very many people too happy, lol.

The only one have really regretted was Seduction. This really went from sweet moment to wtf in 3 chapters. The ending was so fuck up that it has a season 2. Them Koreans like some fuck up shit.

I really regret Inside Mari. I don't even know why I stuck it out to the end. The drawings were creepy, gross and inconsistent, the main characters ranged from whiny to "doormat" and the supporting cast was just plain awful. The ending is not satisfying at all.

Mahouka. Ugh. Both versions.

Moments where the author outright tells you how awesome someone or something is, instead of building the world in such a way that I would come to that conclusion without being explicitly told, and without being bored. Constant pauses - long pauses - to over-analyze characters or ideas just introduced, once again blatantly spelling it out every single time in excruciating detail instead of letting it come up naturally.

Most of all, it read more like a textbook than literature. I felt like I was reading an illustrated guide on the theoretical principles of an imaginary, fictitious science, that wasn't engaging in the slightest when it was explained. In fact, I never felt there was any conflict at all, just lip service to the idea that it existed (which it really didn't). And if there's no conflict, does it really even qualify as literature?

I'm in good company at least. I've seen more Japanese reviews that shred the series to bits than positive (or even neutral) reviews. Ended up selling those volumes to Book-Off for 20 yen total (not even 20 cents at the time) - that's all they'd take them for and they were like new. I was tempted to keep 'em and throw them away just to take them out of circulation, but whatever. There's the slight chance those manga went to someone who liked it.

Since we're meant to see things through the protagonist's eyes and relate to them more, sometimes I wonder if this sort of stuff classifies as self-centered. I'm sure many of the guys who lost have friends and beliefs too, but it sure didn't pull out for them. I mean, friendship's great and the moral of the story's gotta win in the end, but sometimes I think it gets hammered in a little too bluntly.

GANT:Z, the manga has some cool designs, but the overextended usage of horror and mature elements makes it seem like a manga which was created only to show, sex, bones and organs, blood and fetishes. I dropped it after 323 chapters, and I could read this much, only because some chapters don't contain much dialogues, and some are only battle scenes, with some "heavy breathing" bubbles!
