  1. And yeah, I've noticed that the most active threads in the Other Manga section are the Dragon Ball Kai and Dragon Ball Super ones. I can get the whole nostalgia thing and loving to watch it like you say, with my brain turned off. But even so, I'd rather leave it in the rose tinted foggy past of my childhood and not accept the new Super stuff as canon. Honestly, I tried to start watching it, but it did not really catch my interest. Even the Majin Boo arc was a bit too much for my taste, especially for how it undid Gohan's development into the new "protag" of the DB world and brought Goku and Vegeta back as the strongest guys (yeah, I know that technically, Gohan was individually superior, but his plot relevance was meh). It was still an incredibly impactful show in portuguese TV and my generation back then. I believe that it was the most watched TV show ever in PT back when it aired, before Big Brother-style shows and telenovelas became the norm lol.
  2. Right, that's the more usual route, I guess. Berserk is probably the top manga on my plan to read list. I've heard a lot of good things about it! Yu Yu Hakusho is that far up in your ranking? Have you read/watched Hunter x Hunter? How do they compare? Zatch Bell I've never heard about, ever. I'll search for it just to see what it is about. There seems to be a lot of good stuff I still do not have on my list! My new lack of social life gives me the required time I needed to read all of the series I had planned for a long damn time.

    I am very much into anime. I got into anime first before manga.

    I haven't watched Code Geass in years so I'm not sure where to place it. One Piece is definitely at the top. My Hero Academia definitely has potential to reach the top as well and is the second most exciting manga series I keep up with weekly.

    I would say it's One Piece, Berserk, Fullmetal Alchemist, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Zatch Bell. The pre-timeskip sections of Naruto and Toriko deserve honorable mentions as well.

    I have no problem trashing Dragon Ball for how badly it aged in private conversations no matter how much nostalgia I have for it lol. I just don't bring that up often in threads since people seem to love it a lot here. The only thing I can say that's really great about it that stands the test of time is the art-style/character designs. I watch Dragon Ball Super, but completely turn my brain off when I watch it since I have nothing better to do.

    That was a spectacular post you made in the Chapter 884 thread. I would give it a thumbs up if this forum had a like system.

    Hello my lusophone friend. I'm here to tell you that our former president Lula just got sentenced to 9 years of prison.
    This is only for one of his crimes, there is at least 4 more, so 20 years is not a farfetch idea.

    Kinda part 3

    As you know, our current president is under investigation for blackmailing, this put him in a bad spot, where he could get impeached any time given.

    Now, if he is indeed impeached, to summarize things, we are going to get new elections (direct or indirect), either way, this gives a opportunity for everyone who is currently under investigation to run for president and if this person wins, he/her gets immunity for any kind of investigation, such as the Lava-Jato.

    People justify (obviously not directly) the shielding of Temer in order to prevent the supposed return of Lula as president

    Part 2

    It truly feels like we are orphans, with no one to actually care for our country.
    Right now, we are stuck with the current president that is also involved with big corruption schemes with Eduardo Cunha, but, if he suffers a impeachment, that would be another president going down just one year after the last one, that would be horrible for the country stability.

    Also, if the current president is impeached, there is going to another election, giving the chance of politicians that are under investigation to be free and run for president. The biggest exemple would be Lula.

    Sorry for the late reply, I am having a hard time to find motivation to post here.

    If you think that's crazy, there are people asking for the return of the military.
    As for what you said, I highly agree with you, but only in a healthy democracy, in Brazil's case, since the end of the military intervention of 64 that we don't have a properly democracy, just two big parties that dispute political offices, there is not even a extreme/moderate alt right party in my country.
    That, plus 10+ years of demagogy and what it looked like a dictatorship disguised as democracy, let's not forget the amount of corruption schemes that put the Brazilians in total disbelief in our country/political scene.

    That is an awesome list. You're quite an experienced anime/manga fan. Fortunately, so am I.

    I have watched/read One Piece, My Hero Academia, Naruto, Dragon Ball, Hunter x Hunter, Yu Yu Hakusho, Zatch Bell, Berserk, Fullmetal Alchemist, Death Note, Code Geass, Samurai Champloo, Assassination Classroom, Toriko, Inu Yashiki, Dr. Stone, Future Diary, and probably other series I can't remember off the top of my head.
