Either the japanese anime or the manga. This is the one manga that defeated me. I, who laugh, at normal manga lengths. I, who conquer long runners like Hajime no Ippo in weeks. This was simply too long and storied. And it's not that the premise didn't sell me, as my constant urge to stay up until 4 am, which ironically is in 10 mins now, will attest. Has anyone ever gone through all of the media for this show? Maybe one day I'll go back to it, but as of now, it's just too much.
