I caught this little tid bit at the end and wanted to respond. I'm fairly certain it's pointless..... but whatever. Here it goes.
There are plenty of fights/action/hot chicks in manga/anime. It's fun! Plus, why can't watching fights be fun simply for it's own sake? I see it less like watching porn for plot and more like.... watching MMA with superpowers except plot is the driving force behind the fighting instead of money. It's what I want and what I look for in this type of thing.
Generally speaking..... if I want plot I look at drama, if I want to laugh I look at comedy, if I want to be scared I look at horror etc, etc.
This doesn't mean the plot can't be a nice bonus if it's good. But I see it more as icing on my cake as oppose to the cake itself.
Speaking of confusion...... what I don't understand is why my enjoyment of manga bothers you as much as it does simply because I don't enjoy it the same way you do? This is what we do for entertainment in our free time.
I mean.... I can't speak for SonOf D but..... that's how I feel in a nut shell. You can take it or leave it but I will tell you this..... it's not going to change any time soon. *shrug*
