NaBloPoMo Day 7: A Manga You Disliked Enough to Stop Reading

It’s NaBloPoMo Day 7 guys!! So after yesterday I started thinking about the answer for today’s question because I knew it would also require a lot of thinking. I really did not think that originally this would cause me to think so much. I mean I knew I would have to think a little but I think I have just read so much manga in my life that it is hard to pick just one. Yeah….that is why….moving on.

So after really thinking through some manga that I originally disliked enough to stop reading I am going to really go out on a limb here. Mostly because I tend to not remember the ones that I stopped reading. Hahaha. But there is one that I stopped reading just because I got tired of how long the story dragged on.

Here is my answer for NaBloPoMo Day 7!! The Manga that I Disliked Enough to Stop Reading is…..

The Bride of the Water God

First I am just going to be honest and tell you that I did technically cheat for today’s answer. “The Bride of the Water God” is not technically a manga, it is actually a manhwa. However, this is the only story that I could think of that applied to answer today’s question. So this is the answer that I am going with. It still kind of applies, right? Oh well too late now. Moving on!

Now originally I was a really big fan of “Bride of the Water God”. I thought the plot of a girl being used as a sacrifice and then ending up in the land of the gods was really neat. I enjoyed seeing all of the gods and how they interacted with one another. There were also points in the story when it would get dark and dramatic, which I really enjoyed. The reason that I stopped reading it though was that I always felt out of the loop. The characters always seemed to be one step ahead and never fully explained why they did what they did. I was constantly confused and wanting to be filled in more on what was going on. Another thing that I did not like was that there were way too many minor story arcs going on at one time. Just as I would start to understand the main story line they would introduce a minor story line, and then another. Before you knew it four or five story lines had gone on and the major plot still had not been solved. They story just felt to dragged out and I just began to lose interest. It did not necessarily dislike it, but I just lost interest. That was all. 

So that is all that I have for today!! What do you all think? Was there a manga that you disliked enough to stop reading? Which one was it? Let me know down in the comments below!!

See you tomorrow!!

    2. LDK I used to obsess on this, but there were so many forced dramas that were unnecessary and don’t help in the development of the story. When they finally got together and officially became a couple , ( after so many annoying , implausible dramas ) the author should have ended it already, or maybe fast-forwarded it to see their babies, etc. LOL But I’ll read the ending.

    3. Skip Beat …. this is the most strange to me, because my signature is ren xkyoko, the two main protagonists….. but I’ve been reading this since 1997, and I feel this story will also be read by my grandchildren at the rate this is going.

    In all honesty for this one, of course I had to look at my response for this day, but I changed the initial question. Personally it is a little weird at times for how I handle it. But anyway, I would have to go with Nisekoi. I got through 100 chapters, but although all harem series are similar in a sense, this one had so many things, losing the locket on a number of occasions and so many more problems too. It is frustrating. I enjoyed it for a time, but after awhile it got annoying. Well, at least it did not fall into the category of forgetting to read it or not feel like reading it for stop reading it.

      Exactly! There was a point when I just got really frustrated with how the story was going no where. It just became hard to read a story that was hardly progressing.

        I mean all harems have plot progression, this one just did not want it by any means.
