First season is only 8 episodes and they're already halfway through, so you may as well wait.
Unless you want to interact with the community while its going.
Though right now the community is split between people that are enjoying it and "its biggest fans" who hate it for not being a scene for scene 300 episode 15 year recreation.
Ah, yeah, then I'll definitely wait a few more weeks until the end of the season. That discourse sounds…. fun lol. I'm worried that's what the OP Live action conversation will be like even if the show is good, which Captain M also alluded to earlier in the topic.
--- Update From New Post Merge ---
I feel like this is pure thread derailment at this point, but why not?
Basically, I read the first chapters of both JJK and KnY. You definitely can't judge a shonen manga by its first chapter, but it strikes me as odd how incredibly amateurish KnY's art looks. JJK has its own style and looks crisp and unique (even if not mindblowing), but KnY looks straight up bad. Again, only read the first chapter of each, but the way they are JJK feels like it'll be more rewarding in the long run. Weird choice to make the protagonist kind of an already established badass, since these mangas usually go for the underdog, but interesting none the less.
Now, KnY did go for something a bit different in terms of drama and tragedy, which I guess was its main pull for audiences, but again, it's shocking how bad the art looks.
Just random thoughts that mean nothing since these are just the first chapters. Didn't feel a massive urge to keep on reading any of them, but I might in the future, who knows.
I read all of KnY last year after it ended; I enjoyed it. And that's about it. Not that much stuck with me. It was a very familiar shonen battle structure. Fights are used to propel the story forward. Basically all character and plot development is centered around a string of battles and the final set of battles takes up a much, much larger chunk of the series than I expected.
The anime is extremely high quality which works particularly well for the series because it's so battle driven. I would say KnY's story structure is much more similar to Dragon Ball Z (specifically Z; post-Saiyan arc). There is very little space in the story between battles / fights. I would say by comparison, though there are many battle scenes in One Piece, at its core, One Piece isn't really a battle manga. Oda more heavily builds on adventure and mystery story structure. Evidenced by the amount of time between battles, particularly past the East Blue. By comparison, KnY has a very simple story structure which demands very little of its audience in terms of investing in lore, remembering details from hundreds of chapters earlier, etc.
KnY is very well suited to the fast-paced fluid animation style UFOable uses because so much of the story is compris. Also, it's short and easy for people to buy the entire series. I would say each of its individual strengths were done better by other series. Fullmetal Alchemist was a much richer story about siblings going to the ends of the earth to rescue each other for example. But that doesn't really matter because the story is perfectly enjoyable.
Sales are all about reaching the widest possible audience. I would say KnY is a series that a LOT of people could easily enjoy. It's very easy to get into, has no glaring weaknesses. The plot is simple, particularly compared to One Piece - but even when compared to other WSJ manga like Naruto and Bleach. There is much less lore and worldbuilding. Even My Hero Academia is high-concept by comparison because the nature and distribution of quirks becomes a focal point fairly early and Horikoshi attempted to build a larger cast of characters.
JJK isn't bad; I have read the first 10 chapters and watched the first few episodes of the anime. But it also strikes me as very familiar. It's very much in the same vein as Bleach and YuYu Hakusho before it - and YuYu remains my favorite of the three. Again, I think the anime is what's' primarily responsible for driving sales of the manga. It's no small coincidence they're now animating the Thousand Year Blood War arc in Bleach and potentially reviving the manga based on he one-shot from earlier this year.
