I've been reading Birdmen and it's pretty fucking great. A bit nervous about the ending as I heard it's a bit of a let down.

I started reading Sousou no Frieren. It is really beautiful, a fantasy with a melancholy vibe, themes of mortality, but it also has a lot of cute moments. It is a different kind of fantasy story to read these days. The main character is really cool and I love her.

I'm enjoying right now Majo no Geboku to Maou no Tsuno. It has a bit of a rough start but I really like that there's a good mix of plot and more silly chapters. I like all the characters and how they interact with each other. Out of everything I read I get the most raw enjoyment out of it.
I also am enjoying these:
>Yomawari Sensei
>Boku to Kimi no Taisetsu na Hanashi
>Uchuu Kyoudai
>Mairimashita! Iruma-kun
>Fushi no Sougishi
>Blue Period

Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War

I have been reading Mysterious Girlfriend X, and I honestly feel weirdly comfy with this manga. I also really love the relationship between urabe and tsubaki. They communicate and I love how urabe sets boundaries with tsubaki. The only complaint I have tho is that tsubaki is a bit bland as a character and I personally wish there was more dream sequences or art in the manga that had the same complexity of the dream sequences. They were so mesmerizing to look at, but other than that the manga is cute n' comfy for me

Golden Kamuy. It's been so many years since I've been actively hyped over a comic. The plot moves fast, all characters have great motives and development and at the same time it's still heartfelt and funny, it's just outstanding.
I'm also desperately waiting to get my hands on the last Totsukuni no Shoujo chapters.

I just started with it too, I tried to read it in my adolescence but forgot most of it. To be entirely honest the writing isn't as strong as I remember but I really hope it isn't going where I think it is. I mean, I went insane over Billy Bat and I'm gonna be so disappointed if Naoki Urasawa isn't the semigod I thought

Just finished reading God's Child. It was a fun albeit morbid read. The art was what originally called my attention. Not a conventional art style one would find in manga.

Anonymous 19692


I read that too. It's an interesting read although for some weird reason once I introduce this manga to some people they start to adapt this weird elitist mindset.

very disturbing story that served no purpose, no real build up, his actions were disjointed and pointless, i did not buy the character, the way they insisted upon (as usual with japanese garbage) drawing disfigured/abused/tortured raped subtly sexualized dead girls, both little girls, and women, in detail many times, the rest of the story, just, all of it, but especially the annoying propensity for "artists" and authors to want to draw disfigured dead, raped little girls and women. it's not meant to not be sexualized, i don't believe any of the content in books like this aren't meant to serve a certain audience that are aroused by these topics and images. there was no horror or fear in this book, just feels like fetish material masquerading as edginess

Anonymous 19726

If you liked Aku no Hana, I suggest you check out Onani Master Kurosawa. It's pretty different and doesn't focus on the self-destructive aspect of adolenscence like Aku no Hana. I tend to think of them together because they're both about a coming of age story of an unlikely loser, who has done a lot of bad things out of lust.

And, uh, don't get filtered by the start. Yes, it starts off like a masturbation-themed Death Note parody, but please, it's not all silly!

Lot of competition in manga. If you have a big hit you milk it as long as you can. Now this is monthly manga with really simple style and rather silly story, not that much of a work to make it and if you make a good money, or even not so good money with it you try to stretch the good times dojgn almost nothing as much as you can.

Mars. I haven't read manga in years but the other day I remembered this one I read as a teen and binged read it. It was very nostalgic. It's super cheesy and melodramatic but I liked it for that reason. The 90s art warms my heart too. I feel like if I were to start reading manga again I would probably stick to similar shoujo mangas from the 90s/2000s.

i read Yume no Soko today. It's a short read and I really loved the concept. it's very dreamy and melancholic and although the setting is very contained the world still feels so vast. one thing i appreciate a lot in manga is observing the different ways manga artists create their own mid values without relying on screentones like how this artist uses stippling or hatching. the art is really cute.

I'm reading Hajimete no Hito by Tanikawa Fumiko. It's still a very painful slog for me to read untranslated Japanese, but I'm enjoying it. It seems to be a josei manga that is one-shots of mostly married women and their relationship. I'm getting old for shoujo manga, so maybe this suits me better.

I started Made in Abyss last month on a recommendation from a friend. Whether I'm enjoying it is kind of a mixed question.

My friend said I'd like it, but warned me that it'd be hard to get through, and they were right about that. It's emotionally exhausting, goes to some awful places and puts the characters through some really horrible, stomach-turning stuff (it doesn't help that the mangaka seems like a massive pervert). But, I can't remember the last time a story and characters got under my skin this much - there were three or four times I thought I was going to drop it for good, but each time I only made it a day or two before pulling up the next chapter.

I'm only a few chapters from being caught up with the series, so whatever my feelings about it, it's certainly kept me reading.

It's hard to put it into words. The weird perverted stuff is like, yeah, it's fucking gross and I really wish the mangaka would lay off it already, and the horror stuff is really, really hard to get through, and all that stuff basically makes it hard for me to recommend it to anyone (I realize now what a big gamble my friend took recommending it to me), but it's such an incredible world and the characters are great, and the drama is so good it makes me feel all the things.

It might be because alot of people who translate things like this are just hobbyists who are basically doing it for free or for peanuts. There's alot not that many English-speaking foreigners who know Japanese enough to translate them to English. So, compared to what's out there, there will probably always be only like 10% of it being translated.

Also I am on volume 2 now, and holy crap.. one of the male characters that got with the one of the female protagonists is actually married and with a kid. The female protagonist found out and still slept with him. I forgot Japan brushes cheating moids under the rug.

Hikari to Tomoni manga about parenting an autist child. Protag is married but the isn't an underlying romance plot since the couple starts the series together.
Bouken Erekitetou manga about a woman who runs an air delivery service. Plot is like Laputa but for adults
Hitomi-sensei no Hokenshitsu series about a cyclops who works as a school nurse in a school for monsters. Some of the students who visit might have romance problems but if I'm remembering correctly the main character isn't involved with anybody.
The Legend of Mother Sarah, kickass series about a mother searching for her children in a post apocalyptic setting.
Black Lagoon, action series that has big Cowboy Bebop vibes, doesn't strickly follow one character but Revvy is cool and has a lot of time dedicated to her.
Ghost in the Shell, though I think the movie is significantly better than the manga, I'd throw Appleseed by the sane mangaka here as well.
Excel Saga comedy series with two adult leads, on has a crush on a man, but it isn't romance and doesn't go anywhere. Bit lol so random XD, but it's fun.
Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro very similar to Kino's Journey in tone the series features an girl trveling around with a giant coffin to different locations looking fofr the witch who cured her.
Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms. Post WWII series about grappling with the effects of war.
R.O.D - Read or Die been ages since I read this but I don't remember romance. Protag is a bookworm who has the power to manipulate paper and uses it to take down bad guys.

I like the idea of a manga without many words and the artwork was nice but it was frustrating wanting answers that then never came. I think if I had gone into it knowing it would be like that I would have appreciated it more. It feels like two different stories and styles grafted together.

ntn but some people like to wait to read a story/watch a series/etc until after it's finished.

It combines every shonen anime trope with Western cartoon characters. So you basically get Bugs Bunny fighting Scooby Doo with anime powers.

Lots of female mangaka do it and I literally couldn't care less as long as the story is good, call me desensitized but male gaze stuff in manga and anime is completely inconsequential.

Speaking of which does anyone know what Clamp has been working on recently? Saw one of them did a bit for a Umamusume anthology but I haven't seen anything else since besides that Cardcaptors reboot.

Is this bait? This isn't manga, is that why you're linking to a page with a trans Bugs? Regardless it reminds me of PowerPuff Girls Doujinshi. Might check it out since I don't mind fanfic webcomics.
