    Believe it or not, I actually didn't like the manga when I first started it. It seemed random, strange, and ridiculous.

    It wasn't until a scene in the second volume that I actually said "This ain't so bad...".

    You all know what I'm talking about, when Sheen was sent to kill DS, she decides to do it the sneaky "imma seduce joo" style. DS fucks her, she kills an illusion without realizing it, then he fucks her again when she was too shocked to react properly... and we come to find out that he ended up deflowering a virgin.

    I thought to myself, "That shit just doesn't happen in... any series..."

    Pfff... I honestly don't remember exactly, since I've been reading Bastard!! for more than 10 years now.

    I think more than a scene it's the stupid little comments by Hagi in the margins that got me hooked. Stuff like "he's as good as dead" when Kevy Dabu runs his mouth about how great he is, I thought it was hilarious.

    Then there's the DS/Gara fight, Gara telling DS he deflowered Yoko with all the censorship while they both lost an arm, the fortress collapsing on them not stopping their casual chat etc.

    That's what I liked about Bastard!!, how it didn't take itself seriously at all, and that's still the thing I like the most about the manga today.

    I don't remember either. It's been eight years now since I started.

    But it's probably the same stuff Aldric mentioned since volume 3 was my first one.

    Bastard!! is actually the reason that got me started reading other manga as well. Dark Schneider was just so awesome.

    Previously, I only read Dragonball.:hehee

    Then I went on and got three other people in real life hooked to Bastard!!.:LOS

    i think i got hooked during the "intermission" chapter, when the epic level went up a thousand or so notches with the background to anthrax's creation, and dragon knight battle

    DS and Uriel in their Augoedes. I was like: "holy fucking shit, I MUST read this manga!"

    The art was just so beautiful, and then when I started reading it, the story was just as excellent as well and so I got hooked. Bastard!! became my all time favourite manga.

    I used to have the bad habit of starting manga in the middle somewhere and then purchasing the volumes before and after that point, this was the same with DBZ and with Bastard!! too.

    It was the entire fight between DS, MacPain and Ba Sori that hooked me up for good. There was this raging, naked lunatic wizard who cursed in the most ridiculous fashion all the time and pwned monsters left and right, I had never seen something this barbaric, cruel and graphic. Not even the later stuff in DBZ could compare to it and I immediatelly was shocked and attracted at the same time.

    When Garp burst through that wall in the chapter where he meets Luffy at W7 and says "it's far cooler to makes your entrance that way" I immediately thought of Gara in his fight with DS :rotfl

    In the beginning I really enjoyed Hagi's random comments. Like when DS got clothes out of nowhere: "where did he get those from?", "<- he got clothes again" or something like these.:lmao Also the general atmosphere, the constant breaking the 4th wall jokes and DS being...well just DS.


    Also Gara appearing and the DS vs Gara fight.
