    Cool Bench

    Even though this is another manga, im posting it because it's done by Kishi and it's only a One Shot.

    Bench!

    Not too bad but I'm not the sports manga type. Typically shonen of course, but in a good way I think. I was just starting to question the guy's Astro Boy hair when they explained it. Cute fella's not a bad protagonist, sorta comes off to me like Kishi gave Chouji his one spin-off series.

    Getting glasses to increase batting ability is perhaps the most realistic power-up I've ever seen though.

    Story's kinda cute and the artwork is so Kishi, but it reeks the same of Naruto's "hardwork vs genius" theme

    You mean Like most shonen lol.

    What made it good was the fact that both Atom and King were already badasses it's just one had a fu#ked up arm and the other shit eyesite, but King was already working on his left hand and Atom only need glasses.

    I actually want another chapter lol, if Kishi ends up doing this after Naruto I could see myself getting into it.

    it was interesting, but the way the noses were drawn kinda made things weird for me. if that was cleaned up, kishi might have actually have a fallback manga to work on when naruto ends.

    When I saw the noses a couple weeks back they looked a little weird but when reading the chapter I didn't notice at all.

    Thanks BF. You're the man.

    After reading this, I have to say that I want to strangle Kishimoto tho'. Overall, it is a cute one-shot, rather enjoyable but because I read Naruto, it pisses me off.

    1. It turned out way too similar to Naruto. ~ Seriously. It's way too similar to it. Maybe it's just me, but the characters, the plot...Almost everything bears a striking resemblance to Naruto. It's just about baseball, king of sports, instead of being a ninja. <_>

    2. The ending. ~ If this is a foreshadowing what's gonna happen to Naruto overall...I'll choke a working gal.

    3. Females. ~ Why the flying eff does he put a Sakura rip-off in his manga? Whyyy? Is there anyone who actually likes her character? Being obsessive and shallow is not cool, man, nor is normal for a girl. On the positive sidenote, the Konan look-a-like is a perfect example how to make a non-annoying, almost useful female.

    I think I'm done right now...

    Not only am I not interested in sports manga/anime I sure as hell don't care much for baseball. Initial D was the only sports manga I gave a chance, but other than that the closest other thing to sports manga I read religiously is HSDK. Martial Arts all the way.

    You should give this a try Kwasi. The only "sports' type manga I was interested was Hajime no Ippo. This is a good manga only because of it's length.
