Have you ever read Berserk? (Read, not watched)

There is also a manga called Vagabond that's ridiculously good but was sadly dropped (eternal hiatus).

Berserk is a medieval fantasy while Vagabond is a fantasy about one of japan most famous samurai ever.

If you want a bit less serious (still serious tho) you can also go for Kingdom, a manga about the unification of China during the warring states era.

You have a very good bunch of mangas to try now, you're welcome.

I'll try beserk. I lost myself while watching Parasyte just before GoT came on and that has probably fucked everything because of the stupid drama..

Doesn't matter, I'll watch beserk. Hopefully. Thanks man. 

Do not watch it, read it.

Or else don't even bother, the anime is pretty bad.

The manga is the pinnacle of manga art.

I very much doubt I'd be able to read it. I mean maybe but I doubt it. I really liked watching parasyte.



 

Wai......Are these clowns the ones doing the new Star Wars? Oh my. Well, at least that's already ruined. Most of their work is already done for them.

This is good news in my opinion.

Not only does mean we'll get the books sooner, it means that the ending is even more likely to be quite different.

Do you imagine the books being like the last few seasons? I certainly don't.

I still like the show. It's just obvious that the story telling has declined in quality while everything else has increased in production quality.



I'm loving the show right now so this doesn't really affect me. Having that said, if true, it seems rather shady.

Good for the fans of the show, bad for the fans of the books I guess.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Yes. Supposedly HBO gave them 10 episodes to finish off the series, they incisted only on 6 so they could get to star wars sooner lol.

Too bad for you then.

Include Claymore and Code Gueass on your list.

Categorically not true, as Martin has said. Neither he nor his publishers around the world would sit on finished books that generate millions of dollars in sales.
