>>11692551>Here's newsflash for you and the likes of you, pal:
That was a decent reply post, shame you had to start it with this, may want to count to 10 next time. It's not exactly an eye opener that books or shows that are easy to get into and with a high Fuck Yeah quotient are quick to gain popularity. Some of those totally awesome manga that you refer to would be harder to 'sell' here because I imagine you'd have to invest considerable time to appreciate their quality that may not be immediately visible on the surface.
Now one can rage about the injustice of it all, but it's just the way the world works, whether it's manga, music, games, whatever. Maybe Vinland wouldn't have gotten as much attention with the more over-the-top moments like 'Horse Punch', I'm not denying that. Neither am I denying that it has it's flaws, such as a rather generic 'You killed my father, prepare to die' main character.
Way I see it, those that were unimpressed can either continue to sage these threads if they appear once a week if it makes them feel better, or they can start any new threads about those superior manga with the message: "now THIS is a book everyone should be reading, and here's why". Some titles need some push and some will get the attention fine on their own.
