Well, I read a whole bunch of series... Rather like Majin Tentai Nougami Neuro. That one is a whole lot of fun. Mirai Nikki as well.

Although having said that, my typical favourites are still comedy series. Ai Kora is alright, but it could be a lot better.

Cory, I have the original printing of the 4 volumes of CLAMP and the collector's edition! I love Clover because of its cinematic-like scenes.

Current NEW manga I'm reading are Fushigi Yugi: Genbu Chronicles, Welcome to the NHK, and a few of the Code Geass alternate universes.

Some manga I'm re-reading include now CLOVER, I''s, Full Moon wo Saga*censored*e, and Beck.

Just started reading Tena On S-String. Figured I'd grab it since it just became licensed and will be hard to find online soon.

It's a really cute manga, funny, with a good story and really cute character designs. There will probably be an anime soon.

The story has elements of Rozen Maiden and xxxHolic... a boy can hear people's musical life string... and Tena is a musical life string tuner sent to recapture some bad notes that got loose. I've read through the first 5 chapters today (all that has been translated so far out of 7 volumes) and I really like it a lot. Some good ecchi moments, too.

The main male lead is a lot like Watanuki from xxxHolic... nervous, unsure of himself, with a supernatural gift that he really doesn't want.  And Tena is an almost exact copy of Shinku in Rozen Maiden...rich, bossy princess type... though she's a bit friendlier and sexier than Shinku

since last post I've read 4 volumes of Ojii-chan wa Shounen Tantei, volume 1 of My Lovely Ghost Kana, volume 1 of Otogi no Machi no Rena, first 4 chapters of Shikotama, first 3 volumes of 090 Eko to Issho, first volume of Hanna of the Z... I think that's it, apart from some chapters of stuff as they come out.

i'm reading a new manga series from shoen called "crows" i think its awesome.. what got me into it was the movies that i saw which were the prequels to the manga called "crows zero" and "crows zero 2"

the manga is very different to most manga to an extent... if you are a fan of looking at good artwork this won't be the manga for you.. lol.. its more substance this is shown by the length of each manga.. which is around 50 pages.. lol

oh and for once the characters actually look japanese rather than caucasain.. they have slanty eyes and everything.. lol

I'm reading Spiral- Suiri no Kizuna, as recomended by Litt.
Really good, the man character, Narumi makes me really jealous, he is a prodigy, and since I'm un-talented and medocre at everything, it makes me really jealous of his talents.

No Sumi, you won't be too jealous of him, not for long.

I'm reading One Piece right now, a pretty epic manga which has a different mood to the humor, started reading it about a week ago and I'm on chapter 280 something. And no, I didn't just hear of it, I've always known of it, just started reading recently.

I hoped to read more of it, then BAM, two years since any progress even though it says a volume three is meant to be released...Tokyopop better not be ending this for me.

I think the anime ended off better, with the two movies and all.

To not make this a discussion of CCS, I'm gonna say I found a Shoujo-Ai manga recently about soccer and I am reading it. Much service and I believe Kite will somehow sense this post. Name of the manga is: KETTAMA! - SHUUKYUU RAIOTTO GIRLS.

KETTAMA! - SHUUKYUU RAIOTTO GIRLS :3 Read the first two chapters :/ I think it's a mistake that they in this case introduced everyone in such a short amount of time with that much information too *_* I don't really feel I have any kind of relationship to any of them. I hope we're going to get to know them better

I'm now read a manga that have a good storyboard and illustrations.

1)FAIRY TAIL-erza and gray,very cool character!!
2)GANTZ-don't know why i like this manga,maybe because the weapon design
3)HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD-very2 good thriller manga
4)SOUL EATER-kid is very cool

I agree on the Death the Kid thing. He is quite awesome. I've been going through some style changes, and the nose of my drawings now looks like the Soul Eater ones.

Fairy Tail is also very awesome, but not my favorite. My favorite manga would be FMA, then Death Note.

I got an mangareader app for my iphone. You download chapters and read them.

I'm at chapter 5 of FMA, really neat!
and just finished chapter 0 of Soul Eater, loved the way it's drawn. can't judge the story yet, since I just started it.

I also downloaded some chapters from Fairy tail,Basilisk,Shaman King, Berzerk
(read the first chapter of Berzerk, didn't really like it .... I think a colored version would be better since it's too shaded to my taste)

I've never read any manga where there is no fights or magick-related stuff and I guess it's time to check other stuff. I added Bakuman to the list, sounds really neat (based on what people are saying)

Interesting.

Well i'm reading One Piece and Highschool of The Dead . Not the best combination so i'll just download the HOTD whilst reading One Piece. From what i see though HOTD is okay but i'm not completely amazed by it. The dialogue seemed iffy but otherwise i liked it. One Piece tends to jump back and forth between humor and action so it's also tricky to read. Oh well...

Any how i'm currently catching up on Fairy Tail. Drawings VERY similar to One Piece, it's a great fantasy. The creator really knows how to make diverse characters.

and Blame! Every Sci-fi lover MUST see this. This is true genius. I need to know how to draw and construct stories like him. Best of all: He loves Halo

Dude, don't skip DN. It is the most genius story ever, and the Manga is simply astonishing.

I've got the first few copies of Fairy Tail right here, indeed the art style is very similar to that of One Piece. I like the idea of guilds though. Did you know that he actually first wanted the main character to be a mailman, and not add any magic at all? I wonder if it would have become such a good story then.

Yeah, decided to try it out when it appeared in Bakuman. It's like they've tried to put together cool dark series and then mixed it with.... shounen...

Reading Aphorism though it's not high on my favorite list -_-

I'm currently reading a manga called "Dogs: Bullet and Carnage"  very good manga,  good story, awesome characters,  very well drawn manga
it has to some extent a unqiue plot, set in post-apocalypic world... although at times it doesnt look that way... but thats cos the world they are living in is layered..  so on the top it looks normal..  down below ground is the rubble of the past and where the mutants and bad guys live

this is a manga that tackles the main characters in a unique way...none of them are really friends or have obligations to help one another.. but they all kinda converge (come together) due to their own circumstances

i would definately recommend reading this manga...  it is quite adults though... language, blood, nakedness etc.

the way i got into the manga was i found an OVA...  with is 4 episodes each 15 mins long... going into each characters back story....  if you don't wanna read the manga... i would atleast give the OVA a try

I've seen the DOGS: Bullet and Carnage OVAs. Didn't know there was a manga that went with them. I'll have to check into that sometime.

Presently, I'm reading Chibi Vampire (aka Karin). This is a series that is more shoujo than shounen, but still packs quite a good amount of fanservice considering. It also makes a very strong link between vampirism and sexuality, so I wouldn't recommend this for young children.

Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Maxite on January 28, 2011, 10:52:10 PM
Chibi Vampire is very sexual. Ren Maaka is the posterboy for "sexual vampirism", seducing his victims and staying with them for days on end. In the anime it even portrays him as arranging dates with several women on the same day. Let's also not forget about Fumio Usui, who has a pheromone problem that results in her getting sexually assaulted at every job she works at. To top it off, there are the frequent breast jokes (frequently between Karin and her grandmother Elda). I won't even get into the truly gritty sexual content that happens much later in the manga, but what happens there is most definitely not intended for young audiences as the themes there are much too mature for them to understand.
The anime is a cute series. The manga starts out cute but turns very dark.

Maxite: Well, it really depends on who you count as young children. Of course, if they don't know anything about sex, then they're not able understand the manga. Though that is more because they don't get the references, and not because it's too mature in 'graphics'.

Just finished reading Psyren and it was great!

I rate it 7/10 but it's the best 7/10 manga there is in that case! Sadly there was a rushed ending and the lack of rating polls and other factors say it wasn't quite popular, but i'll never disrespect it in any way. It's possibly the best ending i've ever seen for a manga and i wish an anime or more was made for it.

Why do all the good manga die so fast?

Anyhow i have nothing to read now...

Quote from: Mangafox description
Most girls are crazy about jewelry, but not Anis Yamamoto. Not since her father gave her a rose choker as a child, claiming it was a protective amulet which would safeguard her from harm; however, if she ever took it off (a feat easier said than done!), she would be afflicted by a “punishment” of some sort. Not like it matters to her though, since the attention it attracts around school from faculty and students alike isn’t something she’s particularly fond of.

But after a certain incident causes the choker to disappear, she realizes that this punishment her father spoke of might have been a bit more than she bargained for!

I can't tell if her fathers an awesome guy... or the opposite:
"Here, my precious daughter, here is an amulet that'll grant you protection. But if you ever dare to take it off, then MWAHAHAHAAHAH.
So I'd rather that you don't.
Btw, you're allergic to nickel lol"

I'm reading Deadman Wonderland. It's an... odd manga... it definately needs you to acquire the taste for it but i'm happy with what i see so far.

I just finished The Drifting Clasroom and i've also read the bleach manga, very interesting if i may say.

I started reading Tegami Bachi but decided to go with the anime.

Started reading Soul Eater but decided the same.

So far i'm swamped with entertainment until college kicks up again, and believe you me i am drowning myself in manga. If any of you people know exceptionally good manga, tlel me now!

Vagabond - Seriously, find the time to read this. Historical manga definately isn't my forte but it's a pretty impressive work the author did. I found myself get absorbed as it went a long.

I have started several mangas recently

Ascension: the story of a teenager fascinated by moutain climbing. I absolutely recommand this manga for its incredible art and scenario.

Letter Bee: Incredible art again. It's fantasy universe is full of poesy. A travel to discover yourself.

Bride Stories: The best manga of 2012 for me. Incredible art. Incredible stories that touch your heart. The volume 3 made me cry!

Blue exorcist: I really like the story of those two brothers!

Heartbroken Chocolatier: chocolate and romance. Who needs more!

And of course Black Butler: I like the new characters (Snake and the other shiniganis)!

Ever since I started college two years ago, I haven't really had much time for manga. But recently, I've been having long term vacations, for various reasons. I've been using those days to get up to date with my favorites. My most favorite being Naruto. And God, Holy Christ of the above, what I've been missing. I don't remember how long it had been since the last time I last read a Naruto chapter. A couple of months, or maybe even last year. I dedicated myself to reading every single chapter up to the last one updated today and may I just say.. *censored* just got seriously real.

I nearly had a heart attack. I wont spoil anything, but to anybody who hasn't read it in a long while, or planning to read it, seriously, go. NOW.

Other than Naruto, I haven't been really interested in anything else. I have a huge read list pilled up, but I can't be bothered to read them. None really beats the amazingess that is Naruto.

Well, there is this one manga called Liar Game. That one was sick, epic.

Finished reading Girl Friends, it's a yuri manga but it wasn't smut, it was actual romance and drama. Had realistic, logical characters that were easy to empathize with and was really well written while having good pacing,  lots and lots of actual substance. Was really blown away.

Also just caught up on the Aku no Hana manga, it's seriously crazy.

That's aside from the normal stuff i've been keeping up with (Naruto, Kimi Ni Todoke, and Watamote).

i always like the classic style of manga back when copic markers and screen tones weren't so elaborate. At the moment i'm reading Ring ni akero. very few chapters uploaded, but its very interesting. i'm enjoying it. the archetypes  and some cliches are there, but it still feels very original despite being over 30 years old.

Aside from the usual suspects...

Shokugeki no Soma - its about cooking and its really entertaining

Noblesse - thought it would be like twilight, pleasantly surprised to find out I was wrong

World Trigger - Simple shounen, fairly fun

Bullet armours - another shounen and pretty cool concept

Rex fabula - fairly new and obscure, interesting concept... but on track to be really really short...


But seriously, Read Katekyo Hitman Reborn! and Shaman King. SO SO GOOD!

Judge (Survival about some guys locked up in a building in which they must choose to kill one of them every 12 hours)
Bleach (Does this really need explaining  :hmm:)
[MANHWA] Breaker New Waves (The sequel to The Breaker THIS IS A MUST READ!)
Ansatsu Kyou*censored*su (Some kind of octopus creature thing is about to destroy the earth in one year and becomes a teacher in an assasination class so that they can stop him)
One Piece (... :dance:)

And the ones i've dropped over the past week:
GantZ (The art style is NOT my cup of tea  :noyoudon't:)
Katekyo Hitman Reborn (I think that's the name, anyway it was good but not worth continuing)
Pandora Hearts (Didn't continue after chapter one, the plot was not that interesting anyway to start off  :glare:)

Katekyo Hitman Reborn (I think that's the name, anyway it was good but not worth continuing)
I may agree with you depending on when you stopped reading. Reborn has an extremely slow start because it was originally a comedy series. It gets much, much better in the introduction to Rokudo Mukuro (around the 8th volume).

If you stopped during the action arcs then fair enough
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Lumaria on July 01, 2014, 10:24:47 AM
I also believe Pandora Hearts had a slow start, but at least from chapter 1 you knew that it had a path it was going, which is more than what i can say for Black Butler's first chapter.

Finally got back to Bakuman. I was reading it last year since it was at the library here but I couldn't find volume 5 so I stopped. Now that I found out volumes 6-20 are spread out among all the libraries here so I got back into it. I had to read volume 5 online which I hate. I don't like reading stuff on the computer, my eyes hurt and I start to see lines when I blink if I look too long.

Amazing manga, the best I've read so far. Which says nothing since the only manga series I've read in full so far was Dragon Ball Z but still!

The biggest problem to reading gourmet manga is the fact that you can't and probably will never have that food. Happened with Yakitate Japan, happened with Mister Ajikko, happening with Toriko and now Shougeki no Souma.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: NO1SY on July 29, 2014, 06:51:49 PM
Yes... it is a minor problem... one that I thought I'd have with Bartender also but have resolved myself to owning a minibar in my future house so I can try out all the cocktail recipes in that manga ;)

But with Shokugeki no Soma, I don't seem to mind so much... to me it's like watching Masterchef or Britain's Best Dish,  so I'm plenty used to seeing food I'll never be able to eat. I just love how freakin suave Soma was this chapter though!

I will convert you!!!

It's not really all that much of a wacky story idea though. Think of all of the tons and tons of school-life stories that are successful... now just think that, but cookery school! Add in a shounen feel with cooking competitions/battles and rather than abilities or powers give characters different backgrounds and styles of cooking and BAM you have the general gist of Shokugeki no Soma.

I really like it and hope they release more... they also link a reader website http://www.batoto.net/ which is an alternative to the usual suspects but I also noticed a donate button if people are into that sort of thing???

Ok so I just read to the most recent chapter of "Soul Catchers" and I was absolutely swept away in it's tempo (excuse the pun...)

In essence its a manga about a guy that can envisage people's hearts that ends up using this skill to join his school's orchestra as a conductor (despite having no musical knowledge) with the aim of improving the orchestra's music so that it can connect to the hearts of everyone that listens.

I usually wouldn't go for such an obscure concept to read but I started and I just couldn't stop. I was really surprised when I got the feeling that I was genuinely nervous for the main character because I truly wanted him to succeed. I never expected a manga about an orchestra to evoke such emotions, especially when you can't hear or imagine the pieces of music being played in the story (I would really like to though), so props to the writers for creating such solid characters that just carry the story.

I thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for a refreshing read that is quite different to the norm, no musical knowledge required :)

Did History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi just end??? I am reading this right??? Chapter 584 of unnecessary nipples and random fights and it just ends!? What was that!?

Post by: Pavo on September 13, 2014, 07:05:14 PM
yeah it did end. At the beggining of lat arc i thought it was the last, then as it went towards the end i thought it wasnt over and then bam it over out of nowhere.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: NO1SY on September 13, 2014, 07:12:22 PM
I feel like that end age would have been perfect in another 80 chapters...

I dunno... it felt rushed... but then I was waiting for it to end... so now I feel conflicted... I used to love the series, and then recently the drawing got really crass and revealing and the new releases just seemed to run out of steam.

I guess it's better to not force it to continue any longer... it's been going for 12 years after all!

Good Job Kenichi!

Well I love youkai and don't think that it's not worth reading.
It was so rushed that they put something that should have been done over 30-50 chapters was done in only 2 bigger chapters

Post by: Pavo on September 13, 2014, 08:12:30 PM
I'd recommed to finish cerberus, itgets quite good towards the end although you might want to wait for last 6 chapters to get translated.
As for new ones I'd recommend:
Toriko, manga is very good, anime was horrible.
Assassination classroom,
Arslan senki, from author of FMA
Rave Master, from Mashima in here he actually kills some characters
Vagabond, great samurai manga about Miyamoto Musashi

http://myanimelist.net/mangalist/pavo you can see my reading list here if you want to see more
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: NO1SY on September 13, 2014, 08:19:49 PM
I actually tried a few of these but never really got into them. I'll give a few of them another shot.

I couldn't do Assassination classroom before at all, but I am very interested in Arslan senki and Vagabond as series I haven't considered before though.

Nice list! I actually forgot to mention that there are several mangas that I dropped that I ended up preferring the anime adaptations for... so they don't appear on my list.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Pavo on September 13, 2014, 08:27:13 PM
I like assassination classroom because characters are heavily discriminated against and that really bothered them, but then their teacher makes them overcome it.
I highly recommend Vagabond. I never thought I would enjoy reading 20 chapters about how guy tries to plant rice.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: NO1SY on September 15, 2014, 06:02:58 AM
Just read "The Heroic Legend of Arslan" as you suggested. That is one well written manga. I'd expect no less from the creator of FMA. The art style is identical too but it's nice to see it applied to a different setting. The thing I like most is that it has nothing to do with Japanese culture in the slightest which is ultimately more interesting to me. Very good story, I hope that they are still translating this??
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Pavo on September 15, 2014, 06:09:53 AM
just few days earlier 3 chapters were translated so I would say that it still is being translated
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: NO1SY on September 15, 2014, 07:38:40 AM
WOOO definitely gonna be continuing that.

Currently reading Ares, I'm enjoying it a lot more than the first time I tried. Once I'm done with that I'll read Vagabond.

Any more suggestions? otherwise I'm going back to spamming the random manga button!

I am on a Manga spree!
1) World's strongest disciple
2) Tower of God
3) Tora Kiss (finished, I have to say it was very weird and unsatisfying almost a time waste)
4) Minamoto-kun Monogatari
5) One punch man
6) Gintama (always follow it)
7) The gamer (I highly recommend this one... Liked it quite a bit)

rest are the usual like fairytail, bleach and all
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Pavo on September 17, 2014, 09:18:42 PM
So, have you started reading kenichi when he finished?
As for Gintama, last chapters are awesome. Especially last one with the feels.
Gamer is manhwa right. Can't read those because I'm used to reading that kind of style from right to left and get confused otherwise.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?

Try Itsuwaribito--> http://www.mangahere.co/manga/itsuwaribito_utsuho/

(Although I've discontinued reading due to dislike of some characters, the concept of the story is really good. And honestly, I recommend it if you are ok with *censored*ed-up characters  and some violence.... and if you like reading the backstories of other characters (the author really focuses too much going back and forth in-between other characters that it's just getting a bit tiresome lol  )

Got into reading Nanatsu no Taizai again because of it's newly airing anime and holy heck, these guys are monsters!!! Really good semi-shounen, thoroughly recommend it. I think Lorenx pointed it out originally... good shout!

Nanatsu is awesome, I saw it from the start. The action is just so intense.

Reading Ajin. Really thinking this will get animated soon. Or rather, hoping.

It's about immortals. Sort of reminiscent of Tokyo Ghoul but in a different tangent.

Finished reading attack on titan: no regrets.

Although I'm not much of a Levi fan, this manga was still an enjoyable read. Despite being a prequel, it introduced many new concepts to the setting (apparently if you get eaten by a titan, you can be cut out of it's belly)

So I ask my friend from a scanlation group..so she sent me 1 to 5 chapters..but 4 and 5 are still raw that needs cleaning and everything..they still gaining profit from chapter 3 why release all the chapters right?
 
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Manimal on November 02, 2014, 08:37:32 AM
My thoughts on new manga that I've bought. I'm either reading or read these ones.

No Game No Life - Volume 1
- Classless and tasteless. The brother sister relationship her is down right sickening. It's not sweet like Kodaka and Kobato in Haganai it's just disgusting. The art is great but it's just scummy. I'm all for good fanservice but this is just wrong. The amount of 11 year old panty shots are disgusting and the obscene about of detail in them is wrong. The upclose shot of Stephanie's dripping crotch covered by paper thin panties...just come on. Again there is good manga fan service like High School of the Dead and then there is this. My favorite scene in Date A Live II was the sunscreen bit with the twins and that had more taste then this. The story of No Game No Life is also really boring and lame and the characters are not even remotely likable. I will not be buying volume 2 and watching this anime.

ToraDora - Volume 1
- Better then the anime. The art is fantastic and it's quite funny. The character designs are so much better then the anime that it's unbelievable. I would like to get all volumes of this there is 6 out but I have to get 3-5 online because they are out of print, it's a quality manga.

Kokoro Connect - Volume 1
- Fantastic. The art is the best I've seen in recent times. It looks incredible and the character designs are ungodly cute. The story is good as well. I will certainly be buying all volumes of this.

Accel World - Volume 1
- Just like Kokoro Connect and No Game No Life I haven't seen the anime. It was decent, Kuroyukihime is one of the cutest anime characters of all time. The story wasn't thrilling but the art was nice. I'd like to get more of it.

I hate that this manga is done bi-monthly! I just want to read more in a format that's in my hands!
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: legomaestro on November 02, 2014, 01:58:34 PM
NGNL anime also made me question the bro sis relationship, but otherwise no comment. It's a guilty pleasure anime for me and I'm too baised to even talk about it haha.

Toradora I need to finish. I'm impartial to manga so I may as well read it then.

Kokoro Connect I was interested in the anime. Should check it out.

Accel was a fun watch, but limited in scope of what it covered. Would have loved more episodes.

The SnS art is really good though (Heard the artist used to be a hentai artist or something though... explains a lot really now that I think about it...)

About to start reading Destroy and Revolution and Magi.

Also gonna pick up Mercenary Maruhan and City of Darkness again.

Boku no Hero Academia got some new chapters translated also, It's pretty fun. I think BNHA, World Trigger and Shokugeki should get a lot more of the limelight now that Naruto is out of weekly Jump.

Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: NO1SY on November 16, 2014, 12:09:47 PM
Well I enjoy them all for various reasons.

My hope is that the smaller series will get a boost in viewership, but I don't know if it will work that way...

Logically speaking, many readers were brought to jump by Naruto, and now that it's over a large proportion may well stop reading jump altogether just because the series they bought the magazine for isn't in it anymore.

The other thing is that none of them really fill the shoes of the big action-adventure fantasy epic. Even though World Trigger and Boku no Hero Academia are great shounens so far, and even though I enjoy Shokugeki no Soma more than most mangas at the moment, I don't see them growing to that same level at all.

Anyways City of Darkness is brilliant (and full colour), I thoroughly Recommend it to anyone who can stomach the roughness and the look at the not so honourable side of the country.

That's the way to do it right! I hate reading things online myself, it really hurts my eyes and it isn't a real format. Buying manga gets expensive but nothing beats the collection. Shelves of similar spines lined up with ascending numbers...I love it. Waiting 2 months per volume sucks but it's better to read it that way.

I've read a lot of good stuff at my library also...like every volume of Dragon Ball Z, most of Bakuman...they lack in volume 1s though and are always missing certain ones.

Heh, I'm a pretty lazy/slow reader. The only times I read normally are before bed, at breakfast and on break at work. That's really about it. It took me as longer to read the Dragon Ball Z manga than it did for me to watch the anime.

I bought a manga called Ani-Imo. It's garbage, gutter level trash. I should have looked through it more before I bought it. It's covered with disgusting incest themes. The worst. Incest is never right, never good and never should be. Unless it's the twins from Date A Live. But they are technically one person so it doesn't count...still it's trash and I couldn't finish reading it.

I have recently read Kakegurui (manga about gambling, so what don't they have yet in manga...). I just thought of some stuff...  Snowmobiles, rock climbing, track, skiing, surfing, fishing??? (I don't know if Toriko went into fishing yet...)

I have just finished the Tower of Conviction arc
Although lots of people say it got bad after the eclipse arc I still like it a lot.
Also if you like Berserk you might like Vinland Saga as well.It's a lot less dark than berserk and it doesn't have any fantasy but in my opinion it's an awesome viking story!

Post by: Manimal on February 06, 2015, 04:05:22 PM
My thoughts on some stuff I've got recently.

D - Frag Volume 3 - The manga is not as good as the anime but it's still funny and entertaining. I love all the little jokes and writing. The manga really goes in detail about the hilarious side characters that make the story really funny! The art isn't very good though, the anime didn't look great either however, the art style is kinda ugly but it's funny and enjoyable enough to get by. It's good! Though the release schedule sucks, Seven Seas is so slow to release stuff.

Love Lina Omnibus 1 - Got this at a thrift store for 99 cents. I have only read 2 chapters since I am a very slow reader and I don't read very much but it was enjoyable. I generally don't like harems. The characters cannot be taken seriously most of the time and are often bad and the whole guy being a pervert on accident is not very funny most of the time. But this one is okay since it's old. All the cliches it uses hadn't been used to death when it was made. The art is decent. Typical harem situations, nothing special but enjoyable.

Naruto Volume 1 - Have never read or watched Naruto. I got 27 volumes of the manga at the a thrift store for $12. Best manga deal ever, one volume doesn't even cost that much with tax! Volume 1 was decent, I liked it more than I thought I would. Good art. In 100,000 Years I will report back when I finish the other 26 volumes.

Kokoro Connect Volume 2 - I am really liking this story. The art is fantastic, really really fantastic. I like it so much I don't want to watch the anime with inferior character designs (they are really bad in comparison). But SEVEN SEAS WILL TAKE FOREVER TO RELEASE IT ALL!!!!! WHHHHYYYY!!!!

I got Akame Ga Kill 1 but haven't read it yet. Didn't like the anime because of the stupid comedic relief and chibis. As soon as that stuff came in all ability to take it seriously was gone. I got volume 6 of My Little Monster and I haven't even read 2 yet. I got volume 10 of Hagani but I haven't even read 6 yet. One day.

Prison School does have ecchi but it is hilarious... The manga is well written out and makes you want to read every chapter (I hardly had any moments where I wanted to put it down)

I'm not into ecchi (I can tolerate it if it is there but prefer not to have it) but I like the manga.  If you absolutely hate ecchi then don't read it but if you can tolerate it then you should try it (it has some pretty intense scenes so be prepared)

Seven Seas finally finished publishing Kokoro Connect. I guess it's only 5 volumes. I haven't seen the anime but I'm guessing this isn't the complete story. It has a classic "read the source material' ending. It was a good read though. Even if it took a while to get all the volumes. Again, I know I can read them online but I greatly prefer this way. Anyways, it was a decent manga. The art was great, better than the anime for sure! The anime has a  faux K-On style where as the manga does it's own thing. Looks very nice! Not the first time I've read a manga with better art than the anime (ToraDora). Sometimes characters look stiff and awkward, especially when they yell and their mouths open to impossible lengths. Plus classic ridiculously large tears. Story wise it was decent, I felt the last volume was pretty rushed, it sped through big events really fast, but it still worked. Inaba was my favorite for sure but I thought all the characters where alright.

Also read D-Frag volume 6. Finally it's at the point after the anime! Oh it's so funny. This manga is fantastic, it has a lot of great jokes. Kazuma's comebacks, Sean Connery randomly appearing, too much to say. The art is a little iffy and a lot of time it tells instead of showing but the humor more than makes up for that. Seven Seas is 3 volumes behind, and volume 9 is set for July. Looking at their release schedule is very painful.

Seven Seas is starting Golden Time and Akuma no Riddle at the end of the month to. These guys publish a lot of good titles, same with Yen Press. Defiantly getting Akuma no Riddle to see if there is any Haruki Isuke moments...probably not but a man can dream. Golden Time, I'll see how volume 1 is. It was a great anime for story and character development, like really great, but the stupid amnesia stuff brought it down to such a low level. Take out Tada Banri, replace him with another dude who isn't a Shinji, and it's a great college anime!

I got Crunchyroll's manga app for my phone. I just realized their anime service includes manga to.

The app isn't amazing but it's still functional and better than a web browser reader. They don't have many titles up. I was surprised at the lack of popular ones. The biggest titles are Attack On Titan and Fairy Tail. I don't like reading on my phone. The screen is too small and it hurts my eyes. The app has a feature where it zooms in on each panel and shadows out everything else. It's a good feature but it's not always on point.

The manga I've been reading on there has been Takahashi-San Is Listening. It's about an idol who eavesdrops.  I did that in school to, who hasn't, but Takahashi is hardcore. She hides under desks, in bass cases, she goes all the way. She always listens to the same two dudes. Their conversations are amusing. It's a bit formulaic, Takahashi will hide or walk into a conversation with the two guys and listen to them than get inspiration for something later at Idol practice. It's not too repetitive though. It's alright.

Now for physical formats, they released Prison School here. Well 2 volumes so far. Big books that cover two volumes each. The art is really great, very clearly referenced from photographs, it looks fantastic. The story though I don't really like. It's just kinda like "all men are icky perverts!" while not seeing the other side like Shimoneta does. I get why it does this though, it's just that kind of fantasy. It's actually a pretty gripping manga, very tense and suspenseful at times. The guy with the glasses is a riot, best character. Defecating in class, a true hero. The student council president is one of the most beautiful characters I've seen in manga, her design is very realistic. Aside form the story what I've read is enjoyable but it'll take forever before Yen Press catches up. I don't mind. It's weird how I find the story to be bad but I still think it's a pretty gripping manga. Lots of second hand embarrassment for the characters. That's a difficult feeling to get across via art.

As opposed to going to sleep, or anything productive last night, I ended up reading all of the current run of "Golden Kamui." It's a really fun story about a soldier who survived the Russo-Japanese war, and is trying to raise money to take care of the wife and child of one of his comrades who died. He learns a about a stash of gold that was hidden away, with a map being tattooed onto the backs of a group of escaped prisoners. He teams up with a young Ainu girl in order to track down the prisoners, while avoiding a regiment of the army that's also interested in getting the gold for themselves.

It's really good, I promise. You'll learn about Ainu culture, hunting, and all kinds of fun stuff. And a dude gets his face slapped off by a bear. It's great.

I am currently reading several manga series:

Letter Bee: the story ended recently in Japan, the last volumes are published in France this year. I really love the poetry of the drawings and the scenario is very interesting. The characters are all fascinating!

Saint Seya: Last canvas, the lost chronicles. Saint Seiya is a beloved childhood memory but I'm not a fan of the recent series. However, I really liked Last Canvas and even more the lost chronicles. I like the beauty of the drawings and the really interesting scenario. The first volume is fascinating and heartbreaking: it's always with nostalgia and sadness you take a glimpse of characters that died in the main serie. T____T

Kuroko no basket: I started to read the serie during last summer, now I'm hooked!

Silver Spoon: I love that author! The struggles of the students of a agriculture school are very realistic. The author traveled to France to visit and learn how big farms worked to complete her personnal knowledge. This serie is now recommanded by our ministry of agriculture!

I am also ending the reading of Heartbroken Chocolatier. I love the struggles of the characters!

I love Non Non Biyori. This isn't as funny as Seven Sea's translation but that one isn't online.
(http://www.mangafreak.eu/scans/i1/img/non-non-biyori/18/non-non-biyori-4798475.jpg)

A great show and a great manga to. Great vibe and the backgrounds are fantastic. It's drawn really nicely. Thematically it's remotely equivalent to the greatest comic in history The Peanuts in the sense that's it's about a bunch a' kids living there child lives. But Non Non Biyori has "adults" if you can even call Kazu that. It's just a nice country side tale of youth, childlike discovery, and goofiness.

Also got the first 2 volumes of Evergreen, another story from the woman behind Toradora and Golden Time. Unlike the other two Evergreen is manga original rather than light novel. It's alright, you got the main characters with dark pasts, the main guy who's best friend is a girl which causes confusion for our heroine, the cool guy in the school that every girl loves but he's all troubled inside...what I don't like about the manga is that it's one of those stories where the whole school revolves around the main characters. So everyone is like "oh my God, it's Awaya Niki, holy crap have you heard this rumour". Quite unrealistic to think all the background characters care so little about their own lives that they soley focus on what others are doing.

But that aside the story itself is so so, I like that the main guy got the balls to befriend the girl he likes right away and I like his dynamic with On-chan. The art is decent although sometimes inconsistent, sometimes Niki has a paper thin waist and her top will randomly change sizes. But I think the style is fine, it works and the background are nicely filled in. It's not a bad manga I do want to get the other volumes.

Seven Seas publishes the best stuff. They have so many titles I like and am interested in. They have so much stuff coming up soon but I still gotta wait a month for D-Frag. It's worth waiting instead of reading online though, I don't like doing that it's not the same.

I've heard of that brand before but still haven't bought enough manga to know which publishing company does the best thing.

Huh, never noticed that bit about the world revolving around the main characters in the story. Gotta watch out for that.

I just read Cursor, which is a different take on the Death Note sort of thing. It shows someone who isn't a genius at all spiralling into madness and being surprisingly succesful at it. It's not a happy story (= I love it. ). I keep on having a sneaking suspicion it was cancelled with how it has ended, but I applaud the quick no nonsense pace and how much it made me feel in such a short time. Webtoons can really achieve great things in a short amount of pages.

Otherwise still reading the usual shounen manga. FT isn't annoying me, but I don't feel much for it. I'm hoping for a great Bleach chapter, and OP has actually been over the top for the last few weeks. Good stuff.

Looking forward of course to HxH!

Seven Seas stuff is easy to spot because there books are smaller than normal. It's all on your tastes, Seven Seas happens to appeal to mine greatly by publishing more school, comedy, slice of life, and romance title. My shelve is mostly Seven Seas and Yen Press.

Ya that's something that's always annoyed me with some shows. You'll have like a character walking down the hall and everyone will be like "oh my God it's fricking Barry Goldman, did he hear that he dated 50 girls in a week and can play Tornado Of Souls with one finger?". It's a detail that's put in I guess to make the characters seem important but it makes the background environment flat and boring. Background characters should be in their own worlds and have their own stories I think, it makes a story more detailed and interesting. It's especially a bother in Evergreen because Niki can't do anything without having a group of people comment on it. As if she is the only person that matters in the whole school. Like she enters a classroom and it's like "oh my God why is she in this class that isn't hers, this is so weird". In reality if someone did that no one would care.

This makes sense though as it leads to conflict later, and the main guy to question "does she really like me or is she after my friend?". The fricking dude is such a loser and you like hate him only to realize you would question the same stupid things if some hot girl started being nice to you.

I finished Evergreen, it's only 4 volumes! Unexpected. As far as the story goes it's...alright but by the end it becomes rushed. This thing is dripping with teenage angst and drama, I would say it's melodramatic but it's teens after all so I can buy it. A lot of the drama comes from miscommunication, so you will go A WHOLE VOLUME here one character doesn't want to talk to the other for some reason and it gets solved by the end. Then in the last volume it gets crazy.

Spoiler
So the main guy Hotaka and the main girl Niki go out and kiss by volume 4, quick I like it. After they kiss Niki puts the pieces together and discovers Hotaka is her brother...her Dad was like in-between families, then left Niki for Hotaka and later died. So Hotaka and Niki are blood relatives. Thank God there is no incest though, and by the end the two are on good terms but hide their secret from everyone, claiming to have just broken up normally. Kinda messed but it didn't go down the incest route so it's alright.

You could see this twist coming from far away though, I don't think it was subtle enough, there where many hints. It was a little surprising that Niki was straight up a blood relative though.

This thing ended so quickly, it was THING THING THING THING END. Nothing was really resolved but I guess all turned out okay? It feels like the editor was all like "YOU GOT 1 CHAPTER LEFT!" and she was like 'well sh!t". The art was decent though, expressions where on point and the flow was great even though there was a lot of wasted space at times. It was overall a nice looking manga. It was not a bad read, it gets dramatic and there is a whole "WHY WAS I BORN!" chapter but I don't regret it. The ending was way fast though.

I don't think this will ever be made into an anime, but if it does J.C. Staff would more then likely do it because Yuyuko Takemiya. The story would fit nicely in 1 cour....maybe. 2 cours if they want to expand a bit which could work.

Finished up on Arakawa under the bridge, was extremely shocked to see how they actually ended it. It was fine, for their style and things but, a little boy inside me was screaming for more :(. I wanted more Nino and Rec action of them going outside, and what happens after, etc. That last page though.

DBZ is a myth! A whole universe created with talent!

For now I'm reading the last chapters of Letter Bee. I'm waiting with impatience for the last volume to be published in my country.
I love everything in the serie: it has a complex and carefully build universe, the scenario is a delicate mix of action, poetry, emotions and adventure. Each character is unique and has a fascinating background.
The drawings are always excellent and show the author's unique style.
A must have!

This is funny, I just got the first volume of Masamune-kun's Revenge and now it's been announced they'll be an anime for it.

The manga blows by the way. It's incredibly lame. I hate to say generic as I like so many shows in the school setting but it's just light novel trash by the numbers. One of those stories where THE WHOLE THING centers around the main characters, so all the side characters are just cardboard cutouts to serve the plot. Unrealistic and just dumb. The idea is okay, a fat kid gets buff and tries to make this mean girl fall in love with him to crush her, but the execution is so boring. The guy catches the girl eating a lot of food in secret because...it's so embarrassing for a high school girl to eat a ton of food for lunch? Just a lot of silliness. Of course it's getting an adaptation...watch it for the legs and...that's about it.

The art in the manga is nice though, it's pretty well detailed and kept looking good panel for panel.

Berserk is one of those i've thought of reading for years, but never got started. My "must-read" list just keeps getting longer and longer every year.

Reading Oyasumi Punpun. 76 chapters read, took me probably half a year. I have a bad habit of binge-reading like crazy and then not reading at all for couple of months. I ended dropping some manga because of this; i couldn't remember enough to keep reading forward and didn't feel like reading it all over from ch.1.

Got volumes 1-4 of the juicy yuri manga Citrus.

So far it's pretty good, I burnt through it like nothing. It took 1 album per volume. It has excellent flow and composition. As for the story...well I must admit to my double standard. I don't like incest themes. But this story is about two girls who recently become step sisters...like Drake & Josh...expect not. That didn't bother me and only made the story more interesting actually. This thing is super angsty but has enough of a light tone to not be overly melodramatic. It's kind of a complex relationship dynamic with a lot of other characters thrown in to make things even more complicated. Some of the dynamics where actually quite interesting, how certain characters could mess everything up, or change things. 

I think the characters are fairly decent, Haru is a legend. She's like the Mako type character, the wacky best friend. I liked her a lot. Yuzu and Mei are fine as well, Yuzu is drawn just like Lucy. Some of the other characters where intentionally unlikable at first but after getting to understand their prospective it became alright. As for spices levels I thought it was well balanced, and in fact the stretches between the spicy scenes where fine because the cast is strong enough to carry the story. It's not just like you wait for those moments, because the rest of the content is good as well. The art is nice to.

I liked this manga and would like to read more. I just wish I didn't have to do it online but we do what we must. There are only about 8 more chapters out anyway.

Got the fifth volume of above mentioned juicy yuri manga Citrus.

In volume 5 tensions rise when Harumin's sister comes in and makes Yuzu run for student council president against Mei. How dramatic? Well it was an alright conflict, and Haru's character got to develop more beyond being the best friend type. But the whole idea of her big sister coming in and messing things up is pretty weak considering she doesn't have any power. Unless I missed something, which I might of, Haru's big sister USED to be the president...but she's graduated so...how can she dictate anything? There is also a new student who is incredibly meta, and proclaims herself a fan of Yuzu plus a Haru/Yuzu shipper. Alright...

For yuri content this volume was really light. There where only a few very short scenes here. I do like the characters though, and even though some elements of the story feel off, the cast is atleast well done enough to read on without wanting to flip to the next spicy bit. It's a very quick read, not a lot of text, big pictures and a good spacious lay out. Citrus is a well made manga but this 5th volume is for sure the weakest, and the new characters are quite unnatural. Not quite as good as I hoped but not bad either.

There are only 2 other chapters out, so the translation is pretty up to date, given the manga's release schedule. I'd like to read a ton more of this one, and an anime version would be awesome.

I'm currently reading a lot of different manga, but Ive really been focusing on Monster Musume, Dr Hitomi's Infirmary, 12 Beast, The Asterisk War & Is This A Zombie? There are other new ones of course. I like High School Of The Dead too. My problem is I find new series, or old ones I haven't read before and go nuts. I also reread series a lot.

I started Nana to Kaoru again recently, got about 50 chapters into it, almost to where I got last time I tried reading it. It's a great manga that conveys it's themes in a mature and well written manner. The characters are great and we really get into their head space. They have shocking depth, it's not just some fluff. Nana to Kaoru is a rather fantastic manga. It's focused on such a complex subject and tackles it remarkably well. Not for everyone of course, but there is more to it then it seems. The set-up is sloppy, but when it gets going, man it gets going. Sucks that I have to read it online, but I'll do what I must to read the best manga has to offer.

Read K-On! High School. The last piece in the K-On! story follows Azusa in her third year as she tries to carry on the music club's tradition. Although it's a 4-koma the story was told fairly well, we didn't get to know the new characters all that much, but for being done in such a limiting format I think it was the best it could be. The one girl being the Kotobuki's maid was silly, I didn't like that aspect. But I did like the arc Azusa had to follow to step up as a leader. It was a good read but it would be much better in animation.

Finished D-Frag volume 8 recently. I like this manga a lot, it's wordy but quite funny everytime. The story just gets sillier everytime. The art is not great but the translation is done very well. Still wishing I had more of Citrus to read, that is a great series.

I'd like to read more manga, I gotta look for some more good stuff.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: ThatGuy80 on November 05, 2016, 02:24:47 PM
BobbyJoeX: It might be, but there was a promo in Monster Musume with Dr. Hitomi and one of the girls from Monster Musume. I assumed it was. Even if it isn't, it's along the lines of something Okayado would do. I'll have to look it up.

Manimal: I haven't read D-Drag, but the other two are pretty good. Nana to Kaoru was pretty interesting, but it moved ridiculously slow for me. I thought it was an unusual concept, being about S&M, but it was painfully slow a lot. K-On! is just great. All three stories are fun to read. If you haven't read it yet, K-On! College is cool too.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Manimal on November 05, 2016, 02:40:35 PM
I think Nana to Kaoru has the right pacing. We take a lot of time to get to know the characters so the spicy antics have more meaning. Some of the school chapters drag but I think everything pays off, however I am not really far enough in it to completely judge. So we'll see how it goes, for now I think it's excellent.

I'd like to read K-On! College to, so I can really get the complete story. I think it works as a manga, especially being a 4-koma, but it's the anime which really makes it great. Kyoto Ani did such a stellar job, I'd bet no other studio could've handled it so well.

I recommend D-Frag, it's a good comedy. As I said the art isn't great and there are a LOT of words, but it's quite a funny one. The anime is just as good but I'd recommend the manga since I doubt we'll get a second season. 
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: ThatGuy80 on November 05, 2016, 03:43:25 PM
I did like Nana to Kaoru, but I just found it slow. I think you'll like it. The characters were good and the story was interesting, but maybe it was me. I kept thinking certain things would happen and it would be a while before they did.

I've been reading K-On! College online, so I've been waiting for someone to upload the rest of the story. I hope it happens soon. I haven't seen the anime of it though. I didn't know there was one. I've seen the original series and the movie and I loved those.

I'll have to check out D-Frag. It sounds good. I like strange comedies. Another one I'm reading right now is It's Not My Fault That I'm Not Popular. It's pretty funny and the main character is sad and admirable from how hard she tries and the situations are bizarre. It's a neat series so far though. Still ongoing too.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Manimal on November 05, 2016, 04:24:51 PM
Ya, everyone has different preferences for pacing. I like slow builds for character driven stories. Sometimes I have patience, but not all the time.

I didn't mean an anime of K-On! College! Just the main one. I'd love there to be more believe me, but the movie ended the animation fine. Such a great film. Ah, Watamote is a good show. I'm sure the manga is nearly as good, but I think the anime got everything perfect. Tomoko was quite the character.

Also I say this everytime but, D-Frag has Sean Connery. Just saying. The best bizzaro comedy for a school setting has outta be Cromartie High School, again I don't know how the manga is but the show is a unique experience.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: ThatGuy80 on November 05, 2016, 06:22:41 PM
True, I'm more into fast paced comedies. It's okay when it's slow when the series is drama heavy. It varies story to story.

Oh, okay. I was kind of hoping there was an anime of it, but I agree. The anime and the movie were awesome. I liked how they ended it too. I don't know Watamote though. I'll have to look that one up too.

If Sean Connery is in D-Frag, it just moved up on my list. Cromartie High School is one I've heard about, but never gotten around to. I like bizarre stories. If you haven't heard of it, you might like Is This A Zombie? It's in romaji on most sites (Kore was Zombie desu ka?), but they've released it in English volumes too. Strange and fun to read.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Manimal on November 05, 2016, 06:37:01 PM
I like fast comedies to, Trigger style shows, that stuffs gold! Ya K-On is one of my top 5, I've watched it twice so far, I'm do so down to do it again. Slice of life and comedy are my favorites.

Cromartie has Freddie Mercury. Just saying. Ya I liked Is This A Zombie, I watched the first season and most of the second. It was a fun show, one of the better harems for sure. The male lead was also good. I got one volume of the manga, I don't really find it worthwhile to read some show I've already seen though.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: ThatGuy80 on November 05, 2016, 07:50:30 PM
Slice of life comedies are great.  ;D Have you read or watched Genshiken? I liked both anime series, but I was said because the series ended for the second time.

I haven't actually watched the anime yet. I'm really far behind on anime. I have manga apps on my devices, so I cycle through them fairly quickly. Then I go back and reread a lot of them
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Manimal on November 05, 2016, 08:47:48 PM
I have not, that's the college club one eh? Might be fun to watch now. Oh ya, I'm really far behind on manga! Again I'd like to read more but I take forever sometimes. Unless it's something really good. I was reading Today's Yuiko-san for a while. A high school romantic comedy where the couple actually begins in a relationship and deals with the awkwardness of it. Interesting one. 
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: ThatGuy80 on November 06, 2016, 12:38:37 PM
Yeah, from the series you were talking about, I think you might like Genshiken. The manga goes farther than the series do, but I liked both.

That is interesting. Usually you have to wait for couples to get together. I'll have to look that one up as well. There's not many manga or anime series I can think of where that happens.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Manimal on November 06, 2016, 12:49:12 PM
I'll look into it. I know that series has a lot of neat points like the show in a show (I think it's that one).

Right? Yuiko-san is cool for that reason. It seems like a basic idea, a high school couple's story, but it's so rare in anime that it's almost an original concept! There are shows that get a couple together quick like Golden Time, but it doesn't often as often as it should. I like how the shows are the journey to a confession or kiss (which seems to be rare these days), but there is more to explore then that! I wish there was more like Yuiko-san. I like romance series, but too often it's the same song and dance. The idea of a couple coming together is nice and has been done great in series like Clannad and Kimi ni Todoke, but harem stuff or comedies with multiple options, that stuff drives me crazy. I don't like that unless it's part of the drama. But more often then not it's just a self insert male lead so the viewer can choose which girl they like best.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: ThatGuy80 on November 06, 2016, 03:27:04 PM
I know what you mean. It is nice to see couples get together, but you would figure more might start off as couples in series. The harem genre is okay. I like a lot of harem series, but it annoys me when it ends and there is no clearly defined winner. It bugs me. Kind of like "How did it come to this?" I figured after the MC got to know the other girls, he could at least make up his mind, but not usually. I always think that the creators don't want to annoy the readers, because their favorite wasn't picked.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Manimal on November 06, 2016, 03:43:10 PM
Ya I dislike it when creators cater their story for what the readers want. Screw 'em, it's their story let them do what they want. Akira Toriyama was pressured to always make Goku defeat the bad guys and to strength out Dragon Ball Z. It would've been so much better if Goku stayed dead and the ending was Gohan defeating Cell, without his dad's help. The Buu saga was good but completely unnecessary. If anything Gohan should've defeat Buu after his big power-up. I like Dragon Ball Z but the story is beyond awful.

But ya I can do harems, there have been a few that I like. I don't mind fanservice either, as long as the show warrants it. But the indecisiveness and wimpy male leads bother me. Mainly because I know I'd be just as wimpy, so it's like you hate seeing yourself in others or something. But I like it best when it's a clear path. Even Netoge from this Spring did the whole guy surrounded by girls in a club, but it was about the main two coming together. So that was a nice surprise.
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: ThatGuy80 on November 06, 2016, 05:24:44 PM
I know what you mean. Thinking of fans isn't so bad, but catering to them can lead to a weaker story. Dragonball... xD All of the series were really fun to watch, but completely ridiculous. Which is probably why it's considered the greatest battle manga. The story may not make a lot of sense, but it's fun to watch. It was harder to read though. I couldn't even finish the manga. It's fun, but I have to agree the story isn't that good.

Yeah, harmed are alright. I actually read a lot of them. The stories themselves don't usually bother me, as much as the indecisive endings. It looks like Monster Musume may head the same way. When I thought an end was in sight, it kept going. A lot of fun to read though. I haven't actually finished Netoge yet. I've been reading it online and I haven't seen the end yet. Even then, I never questioned who was going to end up together. It's really fun. I like how all of the characters are a little crazy. Except the female lead, who is really nuts. xD
Title: Re: what manga are u reading now?
Post by: Manimal on November 06, 2016, 08:26:50 PM
Dragon Ball is so much fun, I do like it a lot and I honestly think it's the best of it's kind, but when you get to it, the story is kind of bad!

Harems are alright when they're unique or funny. I couldn't get into Monster Musume because the male lead was too boring. He literally hardly has a face. I know he's kind and all this stuff, but...I didn't enjoy the volume I semi read and 2 episodes I semi watched. But ya, I am not a fan of "harem" endings. I like nice and simple romance. Or dramatic love triangle heartbreak. Netoge is fun, in the manga the scene where she lashes out on the teacher is MUCH darker then what they did in the anime! She just took out her magic staff in the show, if I'm not mistaken she actually drew a box cutters in the manga? Ako is nuts, like casually gaming nude and of course the "presentation" scene when Rusian visits her house.

As an anime Netoge was a low quality production but I think it had something sort of going for it, even if it wasn't perfect. The OP and ED are great.

Oh ya.

The anime was great, a complete story. I'm sure the manga is as good to. It's funny and I had a good time with it. The ending was satisfying and I liked the cast. It's silly, and not something to take super seriously, but it's pretty solid. Koro-sensei is a great character.

BobbyJoeX: I haven't gotten around to Assasination Classroom yet, but it looked good. It's on my ever growing list of things to watch and read.

Manimal: Monster Musume was interesting for me, more so for the female characters, but I like the MC in it. Even if he is indecisive at times. Despite his kindness, he has a tendency to remain calm when everyone else is freaking out. Which I originally didn't think he had in him. As far as Netoge goes, I haven't seen the anime yet, but you're right. She draws a box cutter on the teacher. I'll have to watch it though, because I love the manga. I think I'm on chapter 18 at the moment. I like how crazy she is and has trouble differentiating the game and the real world.

Read the first volume of Netsuzou Trap.

This is a spicy yuri manga about two best friends with boyfriends who appear to like each other more then their dudes. Like Citrus there is one pushy character, Hotaru, who asserts herself onto Yuma and frames her advances as either jokes or practice for when she gets down with Takeda. So we have the kind of "oooh you like this don't you" kind of thing and a lot of confusion from Yuma. Compared to Citrus I didn't find the dynamic to be quite as good and Hotaru really doesn't mess around. I do feel there is a good set-up and group of characters here though, Hotaru is experienced with boys and her current dude is kind of a dink. She has no other female friends besides Yuma who has an innocent boyfriend, Takeda. Poor Takeda, seriously this guy just wants a nice romance. He doesn't really know what to do. Meanwhile Hotaru is trying to steal all of Yuma's first, but we can tell that Yuma gets into it as well. I think this first volume was alright, compared to Citrus again it's really not as good of a yuri set-up but we'll see where it goes, I'll read more. I like the bit the author put at the end, she's just like ha ha ha let's make this super soppy! Oh no.

The art is not bad, it's stiff at times but the faces and hair look great.

Well I'm reading the final omnibus volume of Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicle by CLAMP (Volumes 27-28, the final ones) and after I read 'em, I have to re-read the whole thing, cause this story really is a rollercoaster with ups and downs. A lot of people get confused by it and even some put this down as an utter failure of storytelling, but I think it really is CLAMPS best work of all time. You gotta read it, its too much to explain......No really, it is  :(

Just collected all three volumes of Tsubasa World Chronicle, and damn...... They really went balls out to make Fai feel and sound more like a female character, while Kurogane is still the same, right down to the drinking. It looks like its more of a yaoi relationship between Fai and Kurogane....yet its more of Kurogane knocking Fai on the head and Fai calling him daddy

Hell, Mokona calls him the drunken husband (Which Kurogane will keep denying to the day he dies.)

And overall, suddenly I feel like Syaoran somehow became the son of Kurogane and Fai, which is fine, seeing as his real parents...are a trip to try to understand.....

A worthy read tho

I tried Tsubasa Chronicles the anime and immediately became confused once there was talk of clones... I LOVED it before though.

I'm currently reading Sweetness and Lightning and I am loving the added recipes!

Read the first volume of Dragon Ball Super. I've not seen any of the show but I saw this at the comic store and thought, eh why not.

It's not drawn by Toriyama of course but the new artist Toyotarou does a good job replicating his style, it's so close you wouldn't be able to tell it was someone else if you didn't know. Toriyama still does the story which now takes place after the last two films. It starts with a very messy recap of both, adding another Garfield God and Whis' sis. Battle of Gods opened the idea of multiple universes and now this is about Universe 6 and 7 duking it out in a tournament.

I liked how this brought that weirdo from the one off TV special, Vegeta's brother or something I think. The story is okay, simple enough to keep things going for a long time. It was fun but doesn't quite work in this compact format. The manga is made to be read on bigger pages and crams a lot in on some pages, I also feel the lines are too thin. But that aside it was enjoyable. Did we need more Dragon Ball? No by all means it should've ended after the Cell saga for the best possible conclusion but this is fun enough. It writes out Gohan however, he's pretty much useless at this point.

The story was a little too fast paced, I feel the show might even space things out better, but for a quick read it was fine and I would get more. Next volume is not till like December though so I might as well watch it...but so many episodes...

Volume 6 of Citrus is out! It took a year but at last another volume of the quickest to read manga. It was a strategic purchase at the bookstore.

Though the series begins with lots of steamy yuri action things have slowed way down in the last two volumes. Now Yuzu and Mei are thinking more seriously about their relationship and there are plenty more issues and conflicts Yuzu faces. I really like the characters, Mei has become a lot more likable and there is fairly solid development. It's still a little overdramatic at times, but that's what you get with this kind of thing. The ending was cute, I like the slow pace of the series. It had a lot of stuff right off the bat but now it's like, okay this is official so what will they do?

I suppose it will be another year or so now...the anime is starting next winter I believe. The PV doesn't look very promising however, I want them to do Citrus right since it's a legitimately good yuri, but we will see.

I've just finished what's available of "Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka?" It's a fun little story about a girl who gets reincarnated in a fantasy land as one of the basic spider monsters in a giant dungeon. It's a lot of fun to blast through in a single sitting, and a pretty cute twist on the well-trod reincarnation setup. Looks like it's based on a light novel that's way further ahead plot-wise. Love to see where this goes:

Kenichi is worth re-reading, I've done that one twice.

Just finished Last Game, Tonari No Kaibutsukun, and Takkoku!!! which was absurdly hilariously awful in all the right ways.

Now I have to try out Smash and will reread what I can of Biorg Trinity. Going to tackle Claymore again possibly, and Mx0. SNeed to catch up on Fuuka and Shinozaki-san. Getting fairly deep into the hole with manga, so always trying to find something to go to next.

I just finished reading the new chapters for Hajime no Ippo, and boiii are people biting their lips (me including). Trying not to spoil what happens, but I am curious where the story will go after 1200+ chapters.

For spoilers:

Spoiler
Ippo just lost his match, making it third lost(I believe?). After his second lost, he promised himself he would retire from boxing if he lost again. Not only did Ippo lose his recent match, his coach believes Ippo does have brain damage base on how he was fighting in the match.

If this is true, and Ippo does retire from boxing, I'm not sure how to deal with this :( :sadbye:

Slowly read through the last few published volumes of D-Frag.   

Man I love this series, I'd like it to go on forever. It's gone off the original idea after it reached the end of what the anime covered. It just delivers great comedy and fun scenarios every time. Volume 10 was amazing, just focused on the bald dudes in the school and solving the stupid mysteries, and volume 11 where Roka and Takao stay at the Kazamas house. The side characters have always been D-Frags secret strength, there are so many and it makes thing very fun. Kazama's sister and mom are especially great. The interactions are key, with a lot of awkward conversations and quirky focuses. The series has managed to keep it's quality for sure.

It's Winter, which means I do my yearly re-reading of some of my favorite manga! The first one is a short, but really sweet manga called Ane Doki by Mizuki Kawa*censored*a. You might know her as the creator of Ichigo 100%.



(https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/intermediary/f/0e7b251e-5f7a-446d-80f7-079b5e4d5417/d24pzoe-cc817f18-c4eb-4fe2-98c0-a6426c4562ec.jpg/v1/fill/w_800,h_500,q_70,strp/ane_doki___wallpaper_by_nikew_d24pzoe-fullview.jpg)


Despite being my favorite work of hers, this is one of Kawa*censored*a's most unpopular works. Ichigo 100% seems to be her biggest one, and you'll probably hear more about Te no Kuchi than you will about Ane Doki. And to be fair, Ane Doki fulfills all of the clichés of its genre. Misunderstandings and accidents galore. However, I didn't mind that for a pretty simple reason: Kouta, the MC, is 13, and he finds himself living under the same roof with a 17 year old girl. I mean, I have experience being a young boy living with older girls, so it just reminds me of my childhood hijinks and the sexual tension that comes with that kind of situation.

Ane Doki's strengths are its art, presentation, and its characters. Ane Doki's art is much more refined and cleaner than Ichigo 100%. I feel like this was the manga where Kawa*censored*a really started to hone her visual style and I love it.

Presentation wise, this was really influential for me. This is a story focusing on Kouta living with a 17 year old girl named Natsuki. In stories focusing on the home setting, I feel like the passage of time needs to be felt, even if the work is short, to make the inevitable emotional impact really hit home. Despite only being 26 chapters, Kawa*censored*a made it feel much longer with one simple trick. Seasons!


(https://i6.mangapanda.com/ane-doki/18/ane-doki-963143.jpg)
(https://file-image.mpcdn.net/19433/322275/1.jpg?1513966798)
(https://file-image.mpcdn.net/11806/184857/1.jpg)


The manga depicts the changes in seasons and weaves it into the story. Kouta met Natsuki during the sweltering Summer, a hot season for a hot girl. Right at the start of Fall, Kouta realizes his feelings are a mess after he goes on a date with his longtime crush, Kanade, has his dream come true when she confesses to him, but can only think of Natsuki when that happens. Winter time is when those feelings come to a head. It's the saddest part of the story, as Kouta's father finally returns from his sudden, business trip and breaks the news that he's being transferred to Sapporo, which means they have to move. At this point, Kouta had been living with Natsuki and her sister Chiaki for six months, so needless to say, the news is quite a heartbreaking bombshell for them.



(https://i8.mangapanda.com/ane-doki/26/ane-doki-1141435.jpg)


Knowing that he and the girls will have to part ways, Kouta wanders the neighborhood to sort out his feelings. What I love about this is that Kanade confronts him and confesses to him again, knowing full well that Kouta really loves Natsuki. Kanade takes the defeat with some mighty grace though. Kouta himself doesn't outright say that he loves Natsuki, he only apologizes after being confessed to. Kanade can see it in his face and demeanor that he loves the older girl living with him. She even admits that Kouta changed because of Natsuki. He became more assertive, more willing to take action when it's time to act.




(https://i.pinimg.com/736x/1b/0b/be/1b0bbee001d4a5f342289060ea751444.jpg)




"Now that I've done it, you have to do it too. You better tell her how you feel." She even encourages him to confess to Natsuki before they part ways. It was definitely the most graceful and somber acceptance of defeat I've seen from a girl in a manga.

Throughout the story, Natsuki does seem like she's acting purely out of self-interest, but by the time the Winter chapters come, Kouta realizes that everything she was doing was to help him grow up and become who he is now. And despite him being young and small, she never lost faith that he could do what he needed to in any given situation.


(http://file-image.mpcdn.net/680/12404/5.jpg?1515575255)



It's such a short manga, but it never fails to hit home. This was the manga that influenced how I write in pretty much every aspect. I prefer home settings because of this. I make my characters live together and have plenty of slice-of-life moments because of this. I learned to make the passage of time feel more tangible by depicting the change of seasons, and then changing the mood of the story to match those seasons. I associate Spring with beginnings and discoveries, Summer with excitement and sexual tension, Fall with changes to personalities and traits, and Winter with reminiscence and melancholy. Then Sankarea would come along and influence how I view depiction of lighting and color, but that's another story.

If you like Kawa*censored*a's work, Ane Doki is a hidden gem buried beneath her more popular manga. I really wish it were longer, but it packs quite a lot in just 26 chapters. Most of all, it's very homely feeling and genuine towards the end. Bonus points for chapter 26.5, the four page mini-epilogue. I'm a sucker for endings that mirror the beginning. That was beautiful, Kawa*censored*a. Absolutely beautiful.  :clapping:

Read during the Winter (NOW) for maximum effect.

Started reading Dr. Stone
Absolutely brilliant and great for science and fantasy lovers. The entire population mysteriously turns to stone, but 3000 years later after everything man-made has been eroded, save for these human statues, a mad scientist eventuality breaks free and decides to rebuild society and free the others trapped in stone.
I'm halfway caught up but it's ongoing.

They'll pull you in deep for sure. Makes sense though. A sport is already primed and ready for all the drama you can throw at it. As long as you have some interesting characters and a skilled hand, it's a sure thing.
