So awesome how they handled the introductions here adding the years that each manga premiered. Smile

Not really, but I honestly found that comic strip kind of "meh". It got okay in the middle, but really dropped off at the end when it decided to reference JoJo All-Star Battle for no real reason & went with internet meme's like 4Kids' Yu-Gi-Oh! opening or "children's card game". Also, the series shown in that strip were simply the most bitched about ones by international fans, so the strip also kind of came off as a little whiny; poking fun at itself, sure, but still a little whiny. Especially with the rabid hatred that Taro Yamada's inclusion has, which I have always found pretty shallow & unneeded; this comic essentially gave the equivalent of kicking a wounded animal when it's already on the verge of dying... Smooth move, fans.

I understand that people wanted stuff like Black Cat, Death Note, Kinnikuman, Buso Renkin, Yu-Gi-Oh!, & Shaman King, but you don't see me complaining about titles that I would have loved to see in the game (admittedly, some of the stuff I wanted was partially due to historical significance [There's literally only one title from the 70s in the entire game... Seriously?], but still). I think the overall line-up is a great one & people should stop complaining about who didn't get included. After all, there could always be a sequel...
