Why bother with him anyway? If anything, he gives me impression as that of autistic child. No matter what kind of argument other people put forth, he just casually deflects them with the most convenient replies as possible (btw, did he even bother elaborating as to why phoenixalia's posts were as simple as comparison as what he consider them to be?). Many people, including kuuderes_shadow has given up on him. Just leave him be. The more you deal with him, the more you'll feel defeated

I wasn't comparing both of those manga, but I was comparing the effect the anime had on them. I wouldn't compare a sports series to a rom com.


So you compared them. What a lame excuse.


...?

I compared the effect their respective anime had on them, not both the series themselves. All I said was Haikyuu! had a better anime effect than Nisekoi since it got more sales. Both of them good great boosts, I just said Haikyuu!'s boost was better. It wasn't whether it was a sports manga or a rom com. It could have been any kind of manga.

Again, I was talking about the effect their respective anime had on their sales, not both the manga themselves.

I fail to understand what was wrong with what I said.


You just did a comparison. How dumb are you? My god.

Comparing the effect =/= comparing the manga.



It is still doing a comparison. Comparing these effects is called a comparison. How did you fail to understand this is beyond me.


I'm seriously doubting your ability to comprehend single things. Yes, congrats, she did a comparison. But she didn't compare the two manga, she compared the affect that their respective anime had on the respective manga. This is NOT the same as comparing the two manga itself. Yes, it is still a comparison. But no, it is not the same thing.

Fine, ok, I don't wish to continue this any further, I won't argue with you since you would rather spew insults rather than try to understand what I said. I did a comparison. There. Happy now?

Really.

If this level (or near) of boost for Haikyuu!! continues throughout it's anime duration it's a shoe in for the top 10 rankings for manga sales. Deserves the boost.

On the LN front a continually strong boost for No Game No Life. Episode 6 will surely give the boost a, well boost. Nice to see SAO, Oregairu and Mahouka still rank. The latters boost dropping off but I expect it to increase when the Nine Schools arc starts. Eromanga-sensei ranking is good, really need to get back to reading it.
