I'm asking you if your saying you didn't read it because you said from what you hear so I was assuming you haven't read any of it.At any rate,If I were you...if you don't read to many mangas because you reading comics or watching anime or whatever the case,I think you should try torrenting the anime.If you really want to get into the manga though it is far more gruesome then the anime...but that is with any manga or anime lol.

very true lol but nothing I can't take

I think I'll just download it or something because my parents would get a little worried if they saw me watching it

I've seen trailers and crap and it looked pretty graphic...but at the same time awesome

what's it about?

Vance, I know you're talking to Resonate here, but I just wanna chip in, that I can rarely get into Mangas. The whole black and white, static image thing. I mean, when I force myself, I have a lot of fun, but I have the same problem with Essential Marvels, and the thing DC has, that is basically Essential Marvel but DC. Besides, is the Anime just universally more tame then the Manga, or are you merely talking about the American version?

If find that the black and white static images give the Mangas more intensity.As far as Manga to anime goes...I find even the Japanese version of most animes aren't as hardcore as Manga.Especially One Piece...geez.

It's about a mercenary named Guts with a ridiculously huge sword you know no human can wield..He was an orphan so he was basically adopted into the mercenary lifestyle and as all Mercs do...he kills mothafukkas.

Doesn't matter at the quality of the comic, it's just the way it's presented to me, I just, like, turn off. That's not the case with other things. I lap up Concrete and other indy black and white comics, and I love any movie that's in black and white. I don't know what it is, man...

Yeah this is a fave of mine for years. I have read the manga and saw the anime some years ago. I am going update this page and add more characters like I have been doing with Gantz. I am big fan of Seinen Manga genres. They are alot more original than some of the US comics I got tired of reading. Its nice to see the hero do unorthodox stuff everyone once and awhile. Guts or rather Gatsu is known for that on alot of occassions. I really like the one time when he sat there and killed 100 men. He killed like fifty after taking an arrow to the left hand. That is when Gatsu became a true BEAST in my eyes.

Awesome one but pretty graphic though, in fact in part 1 Guts is molested when he is still a child
