Well uh, wow.  
So it seems that they haven't stopped at Shakespeare (albeit that appeared to be an icky American manga), and now it is the oldest one in the..er..book?


Presenting MANGA BIBLE.

...

Wow.

I thought I'd seen it all when I saw a manga about wine testing.
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 28th, 2007 12:43 am (UTC)
...really?


...was it 'Bartender'? Because if not, I'm disturbed hat there's more than one on that genrral theme.

Haha, no, 'Drops of God.'

session posted about it the other day. It's absolutely ridiculous.

I should find that funny, but instead I want that manga for sentimental reasons. My dad was a wine conessuir. you see. (Still silly, though.)
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 28th, 2007 01:18 am (UTC)
You never know, it may be really good. ^_^ It's a good a reason as any to read a manga, I'd say.
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 28th, 2007 01:16 am (UTC)
...I think I've heard of that one. XD


Wow, they really are striving for originality now, huh? XD

I find this deeply amusing for reasons I can not fully explain.

LOL, yeah, I don't quite know what to say about it. XD

WOMAN, JUDAS/JESUS IS THE ONLY TRUE OTP!!!!!


My finding this out started with a friend posting about this meta-quote:

http://community.livejournal.com/metaquotes/6272781.html


the world is getting a Manga Bible. Jesus has never looked so bishonen. Sure, that incest rape was actually in the source material, and Leviticus is already as boring and tedious as Dragon Ball Z, but watch out for those tentacles, Judas. They're new. Oof.


Apparently everone see's it all going a bit DBZ. XD

I liked the Shakespeare manga...thought that is probably because I love Shakespeare and generally like anything to do with it (although I refuse to go to shakespeare ballet or all shakespeares made into modern day comedies.)
But a manga bible is just...strange.
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 28th, 2007 12:55 pm (UTC)
I'm sorta...looking forward to how the extremists respond. XD


I like Shakespeare too, but in this case I like it to the point where I don't want to see it butchered. Juliet is a slut in a mini skirt? Yeahokay.

Still, you're the one that's read it, so I'll take into account. =)
jenniekittyjenniekitty on August 28th, 2007 02:36 pm (UTC)
It's so much better than some of the shakespeare stuff thats out there...for a start they use the original language in it oooo unlike all the other shit that makes it all modern or gangster or whats not.
And the art is pretty cool, yeah juliet is in a mini skirt but it's not set in the original context of past verona its (I think) slightly in the future (Hamlet is set like super in the future and space and stuff) but they're still some of the best retelling of Shakespeare I've seen and I'm really picky when it comes to that. :) T'is okay tho. thinking of investing in more.
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 28th, 2007 02:46 pm (UTC)
Huh, wow, didn't expect that. o.o I was expecting it to be v.bad. XD

RE the miniskirt, I don't like the idea of making Juliet a bitchy preppy type in an attempt to make it really 'cool'. The fact that they've kept the language is cool, but the attempt to make it like that kinda pisses me off. ^^;

I'll be sticking to the Romeo x Juliet anime, anyway. =) Even if the plot is veeeery adapted. XD
jenniekittyjenniekitty on August 28th, 2007 02:51 pm (UTC)
She's not actually all preppy or anything. She's just like Juliet but in diff clothes than youd expect. (the character thing at the start says Romeos a rock star which I thiought wha? but when you read it it's not mentioned in it at all! so thats cool) It is super close to the play. If I knew when I'd see you next i'd offer to lend you it.
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 28th, 2007 03:05 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks! ^^ But yeah, I have no idea either. o.o Since I'm not invited to any party's that you also attend anymore. XD;

Oh yeah, I remember the Romeo's a Rock Star bit...hehe, but I guess if It doesn't mention it it doesn't matter so much. o.o
jenniekittyjenniekitty on August 28th, 2007 06:04 pm (UTC)
In all fairness I'm not exactly a party animal and don't go to many :) lol

But if you get the chance I highly reccomend you at least read it :)

Didn't know you liked shakespeare anyways.
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 28th, 2007 06:29 pm (UTC)
Well yeah, me neither. XD But I only really saw you at Nikkis, and yeah. o.o


Righto, I'll look into it. =)


I'm not a huge fan or anything, but I do like his stuff...I've had to study quite a few over the years, and have enjoyed them. =)
jenniekittyjenniekitty on August 28th, 2007 06:34 pm (UTC)
