I still miss this one, despite it often being stupid and contrived.

 

But it's not the only one. Looking at my follows list, I think I just have some sort of fatal attraction to abandon-bait.

 

Couldn't have been more suspect if he had a giant sign on his back reading "I'm a sexual predator if you see this immediately report me."

And in other news, Roy Moore is still running for Senate.

Hey, the man in charge of this project. Currently, all my typesetters have disappeared on me and I've been too busy with work and personal stuff to search for new members. Right now its on Indefinite hiatus.

 

I never understood why typesetters disappear. It's easy, man. If you still need that help, then I could always help out.

I'm guessing this one got dropped again?

Possibly. I certainly haven't heard anything to suggest otherwise in a while...

At any rate, my translations are published publicly over at Mangahelpers; if anyone would like to finish the series off--and I would like to see it finished off--give me a buzz.

Voices, to me, are a religion; and his is the shit?

It's getting a bit weird when the guitarist left the band mmm...

I didn't even remember he's a boy at first, holy shit.

Nobody reported an explosion because "they thought someone else would report it?"  What kind of neighborhood do you live in where everybody is that dumb?

Lots of things in a city can cause sudden loud noises.  Most of them don't mean anything serious has happened, and most of the time if they mean something serious did happen, there would be witnesses who would know more than just "I heard a noise".  It's perfectly reasonable to leave any action to people who actually were there and saw whatever, rather than calling 911 every time you hear backfire or some weird construction thing or whatever.

Nobody reported an explosion because "they thought someone else would report it?"  What kind of neighborhood do you live in where everybody is that dumb?

1 - I doubt a power converter short-circuiting would create your "typical Michael Bay" explosion. It was more likely a loud noise, and if you were looking at the place when it happened, maybe a few sparks flew.

2 - In most countries, filing a report that has the police, firefighters and/or ambulance come to the place without the need of their services draws a hefty fine with it.

3 - That's not dumb, but apathetic.

 

Also, some people could have thought that it was "just some kids playing with petards".

Additionally, if every potential crime was reported, as it seems to happen in your mind, both the police would be overburdened AND you would barely have any crime. But guess what? Crime is an everyday thing. Everywhere.

It does, and so far the story elements it's led to haven't been worth it. But imo, for the manga as a whole, the mangaka is still somewhat ahead in the "The story was worth the contrived circumstances needed to tell it" versus "Oh, come on!" race.

Went to reread some of the chapters and came across this page.

I wonder what's going on...??

That's what I'm wondering.  The fuck was that in Chapter 19.  Some guy in a disguise asks what age you are while dressed as a girl and you don't find that suspicious at all?  And am I to suspect nobody saw that dude and thought he was suspicious?  At least tell Pochi to be careful and not go anywhere alone.  Everyone is acting really fucking stupid.  That or everybody at that gathering went blind for about 5 minutes while that dude walked in.  Couldn't have been more suspect if he had a giant sign on his back reading "I'm a sexual predator if you see this immediately report me."

 

Ageha gets chased down the street by a generic "bad dude" and happens to enter the exact building she was supposed to go to while lost?  That's awfully convenient.  And did she really have to go to America alone to get this kind of experience?  Am I to believe there are no similar places where you can find this kind of inspiration?  At least fucking go with her or send her with a supervisor.  The fuck.

 

Ya, I was like "The Fuck" and afterwords Pochy and the other two are just fine!? It be one thing if the sexual assult didn't happen, and Pochy was just concerned about the weird guy. People can be weird, and creepy, but until they actually do something, we don't do anything more then get on with our lives. The sexual assault feels forced, and how they just brushed it off makes it feel even more forced. The most I could say, is that the writer is trying to force the readers to feel sympathy for the guitar girl through pochy.

 

As for the guitar girl, were the fuck is her parents, how did she get the money, and why is she by herself. the hole New York thing just reeks of bad writing, so much bad writing.

Random bit of Trivia:

Did you know? When there's something suspicious, people tend to ignore it, because "someone else is going to report that anyway".

A couple of months ago, there was an explosion in my neighborhood and nobody thought about doing anything, not even call the police. It could've been a terrorist's bomb, but nobody did a thing. Hours later, there was a power outage and finally the firefighters and the police were called. It turned out the explosion came from some power converter that short-circuited. The damage eventually spread until it took the whole network down.

Nobody lifted a finger until it got inconvenient. I was out that day and only noticed the power outage later, but to be honest, I would've acted like everybody else: Like it's none of my business until it is.

You were saying everyone was acting stupid? That's because they are. And it's true in real life too: Everyone is stupid. Did I just burst your bubble? Sorry about that.

Congratulations, you live with a bunch of morons. Don't try to lump the rest of the world with them.

If theres anything I've learned from Batoto; its that the answer is always shut up and enjoy it or leave.

...Why is she just obeying whatever some random asshole off the street says? She might be good at guitar, but she was pretty clear about not giving a shit and wanting to get rid of her. Her only advice has been the ridiculously contradictory "Don't play guitar anymore! Get better at it, first! Without playing! I'm not telling you how! Just do it!" So why is she going to America alone, telling nobody where she is, speaking no english, with no contacts and nowhere to stay, completely assuming that she isn't being tricked into an underground slavery ring, or that rando music lady isn't just messing with her and wrote down a fake address? Why any of this? What is even happening in this story anymore?

There's such a thing as degree, old bean.

Plus, it's always a lot easier to accept an unusual setup than to accept random new stuff added in later.  And there's a difference between unusual things about the world, whether setup or added later, and characters doing things that make no psychological sense.  That's the stuff that breaks a story.

Look at "Spirited Away":  Bizarre setting, new bizarre elements added all the way through, plot sort of drifts, from some perspectives none of it makes much sense, but somehow what the characters do always seems to work in their own terms, so it's OK (well plus it's so gorgeous and mythic it could get away with almost anything, but never mind).

Because reasons. manga. (^_~)

 

Most manga have elements that are contrived in some fashion or another, from "an average teenage boy suddenly acquires a superpowers and a harem of beautiful women who all want to have sex with him but he's unwilling" to "a 16-year-old boy who has an amazingly beautiful voice (and face) of a girl suddenly gets discovered by an androphobic girl who wants him to hide his gender and repeatedly lands in situations where he sees her naked". The question is whether the mangaka can tell a story that's interesting enough to make the unbelievable plot elements worthwhile. At least for me, it's been close to the line a couple of times but it's progressing farther into "worthwhile" territory.

So basically this is the story of transvestite Michael Jackson's rise to fame. It is heavily reminiscent of Nodame, which is good. I loved that manga. Also, just one question.

Spoiler

 

Please make it clear that this really is a spoiler in the form of "When does [Future Event] happen?". Yes, technically that's a question - but saying it's a question gives the incorrect impression that it's not a spoiler.

 

(It's reasonable to think that "People should know it's a spoiler anyway, because it's a spoiler tag." But unfortunately, there's a rule that you have to use spoiler tags for anything lengthy - so the lines get blurred.)

 

what a lesbo

 

Even if you're mocking people who would be dumb enough to say this unironically, it's not especially funny.
