I guess its also because people accepted the idea of calling time travel "Reincarnation"

I feel like the 2010's haven't been too great in terms of sci fi LN and manga, but i could just be missing out on something.
Does anyone know some sci fi good manga or LN, preferably with a decent amount of chapters, that doesn't involve game systems?

Most sci-fi I have read are kind of shit, there are some good mangas I cant remember. But theres this Narita manga I am now reading
It starts with a fantasy world necromancer getting isekai'ed to a future earth. Technology is more advanced than Durarara, there are a lot of sci-fi elements.
And this Korean novel

I dont think theres anything like Utsuro no hako. "Tsukumodo Antique Shop" and "Gekkou" are good mystery light novels. I think "Sachiiro no One Room" is a good mystery manga. "Though You May Burn to Ash" is mystery+horror+torture, but the author died so the series is cancelled. Theres another one I cant remember.

I really liked Gekkou when i read it, Sachiiro no One Room not so much (a bit too edgy for me).
Its the first i hear of Tsukumodo Antique Shop and it looks incredibly interesting, thank you very much.

Man deca dence is no bueno.

Its time travel to your former self.
Feels more like loading a savestate. 🤷‍♀️ A spider being reborn as a monster in another world feels more like a true reincarnation. Or Jesus, since naturally the passage of time only goes forward. Yes.

I mean everyone has accepted calling it reincarnation any way. I would suggest asking it to r/lightnovels or novelupdates forums. Although what you said can indeed be given some thought.

Oh I know what other people call it but like I said, to me the shoe don't fit. I'm prob wrong and that is ok!

Check out my Top 150 One Piece Characters List that I made a little while ago. Based entirely on my preferences; they’re my favorites

Over 1,000 characters in the manga/anime I think so this is at least the top 10% of them IMO

I’ll put in spoilers, just in case anybody wants to preserve even the names of characters

Lol I know, good catch. Actually, a decent bit more than that. On some spots I included multiple characters that sort of go together. One spot even has a group of four characters. I'm waiting to see what other fans think of the rankings. Shit was tough to decide, even in the top 25, even in the fucking top 10 tbh, the characters are all so dynamic and great. Very inspiring characters and work in One Piece I love it

You said you’ve read JoJo Part 6: Stone Ocean right? Where does it rank in comparison to the others for you? What’s the best aspect of it in your opinion?

I think I might soon start to very slowly chip away at it until the anime is announced (I would guess 2021)

Cutty Flam Cutty Flam Actually I haven't read Stone Ocean yet, only a few chapters including the ending (I spoiled myself, I know). I'm waiting for the anime to discover the whole story. One thing I can say about it is that it'll go to some very unexpected places.

My guess is that the anime announcement might drop at anytime. I'm expecting it to start airing some time during 2021.

Stone Ocean is literally the worst part. From the stands to the story and the characters. After the first part anyway. But tbf Phantom Blood is older than most people here.

Barely 20 seconds into The God of High School 4 and I'm thinking of Cowboy Bebop and Big Shot.

You can hear the stand names loud and clear though.

Phantom Blood is excellent. But the ones that follow are just so phenomenal, there’s no way it can really compete. Jonathan Joestar’s is a saint!!!
His demeanor, in part, was what made Dio so detestable of a villain. Jonathan was some level of passive, and very forgiving. Genuinely felt bad for the guy. Standup guy but Dio fucked up his entire life

Interested to see how Stone Ocean matches up with the rest. I heard some people praise it well, some say it’s pretty good, others said it wasn’t all that great. Curious about Jolyne Kujo

Part 7 and Part 8 I heard are both great. Part 8 seems really confusing

Oregairu S3 ep 4 - Best girl doesn't deserve such pain. This is shit. Reading the lyrics for season 1's ED knowing it's likely from her perspective makes it hurt more. DAMMIT ALL! Hopefully she finds some ultra kind and handsome chad that will give her the happily ever after she deserves.

Deca-Dence ep 4 - So at this point, I'm guessing she's either going to die or get critically injured in the battle and the dude will somehow transform her into a cyborg.
