Yo asj, you asked a while ago how many episodes Kids on the Slope will have, right? Looks like it'll have 12. Next episode will be the last one.

you should see both plus the anime isnt ranked badly either. its just not as high as the manga....
nicaboy456 Jun 23, 2012 9:36 PM
it'll definitely be worth it and good job with Bokurano. anime or manga?
nicaboy456 Jun 23, 2012 10:46 AM
you're set up to see arguably the best movie in the series now....

It was good. Started a bit slow, those first 4 volumes were really just okay and I didn't feel like it was worth my time to read it, but it picked up when Sakuragi got better and the series was very good by the end. Also had a pretty solid ending which is hard to come by these days.

Any gripes I have would be that I wish the manga had focused more on some of the other characters. It was a little tiring to have almost no one but Sakuragi for the entire 31 volumes and there were some pretty good characters that could have been used more.

Started off on a low 7, but was probably around a 9.2 by the end.I enjoyed it greatly by the ending, but it started slow so I deducted a point for it, also for a few other minor reasons.

I have actually been reading SD, so you know. Just finished the match against Kainan...don't know what I'm feeling towards that ending. I couldn't even facepalm too it.

That's just in case you wanted a link to those ebooks.

I forgot what you went to college for. Was it something to do with computers like me? I vaguely remember that I think. I'm halfway through and have been taking a break for a few semesters. I need to figure out where I want to transfer, and what to change my major to.

Yes actually. By a man named Loomis whom I've read so much about on forums. I got a link to a free download since apparently the copyright is out of date by now.

And I guess I can't say I have much of a plan lol. Basically just draw a lot, sure, but I can't just forget that I want to draw manga. I plan on doing manga studies along with the realistic studies. Loomis said early on in his book that no matter what style you make things, the core elements to a good artwork are anatomy, perspective, and something else lol. I'm sure this will help me since I really like the more realistic looking manga anyway...not the stereotypical big-eyed anime girl stuff.

Do you have any path in mind that you plan on taking?
Grayzeal Oct 24, 2011 10:52 AM
You're right. I've realized this when I was looking at why people look down on the manga style. Just being able to copy someone's style isn't enough, and I definitely wouldn't want that since there are only a small handful I like to begin with. You need to learn realism as well, and study various things in order to develop your own style...then your own manga style.

On the bright side I think I may have developed some type of training regimen for myself.
Grayzeal Oct 2, 2011 7:15 AM
Yea, I know how that feels. I asked a professional artist for a video game how to get better. He told me to draw seems simple enough, but the motivation just isn't there.

I've also been browsing deviantart a bit recently, there are so many styles that have inspired me. I feel like I don't even have a style, and if I do, I don't like it.
