So the parody manga "That time I got Reincarnated as Yamcha" got an official translation that I picked up on the Kindle store. I read the first chapter when it was first fan translated and it was actually pretty good. Though sadly it doesn't maintain that.

It definitely keeps up being good for a while, but towards the end it sadly just completely wastes its own premise. It skips the Frieza saga completely, then barely touches upon the Cell saga, by which point the premise has been abandoned anyway since events are going exactly the same as in the original manga. The ending was pretty disappointing too, finding out that the whole thing was just a game between Beerus and Champa. It almost seems like it might be setting itself up for some kind of potential sequel, which could well have redeemed the disappointing ending and given an opening for a "Dragonball in the real modern world" spin off, but immediately abandons that for an unfunny punchline.

It's a shame to see the premise wasted like that after such a good start. I know it was just a quick parody spin off, but it almost reached towards being something more than that.

I'm sure this has been mentioned in here before.



I need this in my life. (The thread has translated examples of why.) Ideally in the way of a anime, officially translated manga or Yakuza reboot.

I love the Yakuza house husband, although it does annoy me that he wears flip flops even when doing sports. You'll break your ankle like that!

Also...

That logo looks somewhat like the Schutzstaffel.

Yes... Or so I've been told, I've never actually been there.

As long as you don't watch the nasty/underage gooseberry fool then I don't see why watching hentai is considered worse than regular porn - some might even argue that since its drawn it is far less harmful to people as there's no real people involved in the sexual acts being depicted.

I'm not advocating hentai btw, I just don't see why people consider it so much more 'obscene' than other forms of legal pornography.

I meant the general consensus on it.

I'll just shut up now.

The only downside of hentai is the budget and animation is always so bad.

OPM is superb, watched it without knowing anything about it and enjoyed every minute of it, hopefully it won't be too long before S2 appears on Netflix.
