WELL! I was not expecting this low of a score, but oh well.

I don't really get the draw of making tournament comics anyway. It's very difficult to make a decent straight fight scene in a sprite comic, which seems like it'd be too large of a hurdle.

Also oh hey it's a Touhou comic next. I'm sure that'll be super fun for someone like Ulti who has next-to-no context about the series.

Am I the only one who's noticed that Ulti Reviews just hit it's 100th page? (Well not all of them are reviews but still)

Well actually... tournament styled comics aren't bad, just overused.

Hearing the same music over and over again is the same as seeing the same style over and over again. We get sick of it. But someone who hasn't may show interest and could be a "real" fan instead of being someone who hits the favorite button willy nilly. But most of your other points did make your rating fair.

But you know, it's your own opinion and I respect it.

Bwhahahahaha! That's only if people don't try.

@Josephk: That really can just depend on how you view tournament comics. Because I'm going to agree with Ulti on this one, tournament comics generally aren't very good. That is to say, lacking in a lot of things a good comic should have since the format sort of limits the ability to utilize said things.

I wouldn't exactly call this an instance of desensitization, mind you. Your argument here seems to be that the same thing repeating over and over again wears away at one's interest after so long. However, from what I can see, his argument is the very qualities of the formula so commonly used in these comics makes it bad. It's not repetition that's the issue here, it's the actual qualities of a tournament comic in the first place. The things that make something a tournament comic.

It'd be a different story if he had said somewhere, say, "I'm sick of tournament comics" or something like that. "I've seen so many of these it's driving me up the wall." But he simply said that he hates them, and he described the very qualities of the typical example of a tournament comic that he hates. Tell me these aren't very common issues in so many comics. Because they are.

tl;dr He's saying he doesn't enjoy tournament comics isn't a matter of him seeing so many he gets sick of them, he's saying the very factors that make something a tournament comic make it a bad experience to read in the first place.

@Alienoid: Hmph... well then, I stand corrected.
