What manga are you reading RIGHT NOW?
Are you enjoying it?
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.
From Now on We Begin Ethics
Soloist of the Prison
Send My Regards to Kenshiro
Frau Trude - Grimm-Adjacent Tales
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:
>Boku to Kimi no Taisetsu na Hanashi
>Fushi no Sougishi
Ushio to Tora v07 …
I'm reading Ushio to Tora right now. It's a pretty standard demon fighting shounen, but it's okay.
20th Century Boys has been a fun read so far. I will admit that I'm more curious about Friend than I am about the end of the world haha.
20th century boys was one of the best manga I've ever read.
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
Mangadex is FINALLY back up after three months. Rejoice!
Ah you're right. Half of the features aren't there anymore but I'll take what I can get. Any idea why they got banned?
I love the first part of aku no hana, i was so fucking disappointed in the second half ngl. But the first part was so good the entire manga was redeemed for me.
philip glass 19552
recently read the world is mine, blame!, and i am a hero. every single one is peak
side note: mon is extraordinary hot
sasaki to miyano. picrel is the current vol i'm on. i really relate to it in some parts as a fujo myself and it's very fluffy and cute
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.>>18783
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.
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.
There is something wrong with you if you enjoyed this.
The art style looks distinctive enough that I want to pick it up. What's wrong with it?
awful. you have to be an awful person to want to create "art" like this.>>19693
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
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!
Ultra Heaven v01 -…
Read Ultra Heaven yesterday.
You really can tell that the mangaka has done a bunch of drugs.
Blue Box is cute…I love sports manga
dungeon meshi 3.pn…
So glad I finally decided to check out Dungeon Meshi. I've been having a lot of fun reading it.
Boy's Abyss, I need to know how this shitshow will end.
Skip and Loafer - …
I have so many that I'm currently reading. I just want to say go and read Skip and Loafer.
I read this as a teen and it left me with a love/nostalgia for world expos but I never finished it for some reason.
I never read Naruto when it was popular (too normie for me at the time I guess) so I'm reading it now.
I'm a suuuuper big fan of Kaoru Hana to Rin wo Saku Rintaro is my favorite and Kaoruko's smile is beaming
reading vampire knight right now
I am not enjoying it, I only read it cuz it has chainsawman in the name.
But also im reading another one called the summer hikaru died or smth like that, its very good and im enjoying it a lot. Probably because I love unconventional romances
not really a manga but a manhwa, it's aisha. really interesting so far
I'm reading picrel, art reminds me an awful lot of Helter Skelter.>>27845
I started reading it but got kinda annoyed because mangadex keeps fucking up long strip, but I intend to get back to it.
>I'll Divorce You Gracefully!
I'm a sucker for villainess manga, I wonder if the author will manage to make me like the male lead, cause so far the only value he has is being comedic relief when bettered by the overpowered female lead.
Samefagging to say her father is hot, hotter than he should be.
This one hurt. I heard it's getting a live action. My Broken Mariko
I'm waiting for the next chapter of Chainsaw Man. Asa reminds me of young me a bit too much, I love her.
I read this manga when I was in the situation as mariko and i bawled my eyes out when the panel of her holding a child mariko was shown.people say this manga encourages suicide but it made me think what would a person like shii would think if I was mariko it's pained me so I kept on living ..
Houseki no Kuni/Land of the Lustrous. It's been pretty kind in the last couple of chapters too, but the arc in pic related was amazing, just glad I managed to skip the hiatus before I got into it.
I know that it wasn't the point of the arc but man it was cathartic as fuck watching everything unfold
I loved the anime and tried to read the manga but life got in the way. Thanks for the reminder hoseki no kuni exsists"
I liked Houseki no Kuni a lot, but I don't really understand why it's continuing or why people want it to. I felt like the story was clearly finished with a strong ending.
Which chapter do you feel was a good place to stop? 100 or earlier?
I have no idea what Ichikawa is even planning on with these last 2 chapters besides finally drawing the cool rocks manga of her dreams
Musuko ga Kawaikut…
Musuko ga Kawaikute Shikataganai Mazoku no Hahaoya. If you don't like fan service there's a fair bit of it, but the story itself is really sweet.
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.
Finished a few manga yesterday, I liked Bibliomania. It's short, only 12 chapters and had fantastic art. Fun bait-and-switch, the writing is nothing too impressive but still enjoyable and has great visuals. I recommend it!
Dropped it during the exam arc. Have no idea why the author decided to do that
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 fuckin love aku no hana because the older i get/the more i know the more i understand nakamura
had the same phase in my teens as her, couldn't coprehend the awful things in the world and seen all terror as "truth", wanted to hit the bottom or something idk
i'm curious how much of us had gone through this phase
i don't read manga rn but i just really want to recommend purasuchikku gaaru/plastic girl by usamaru furuya
pls just read it
it has only one chapter
you defo won't regret it
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.
This manga is just so gross to me. Not to moralfag but I don't understand how other s can recommend it to others. I read pretty far but had to put it down when the fetish stuff just got to be too much and I'd never rec it to anyone, the manga is disgusting in general.
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's amazing to me how many series still go untranslated, especially with the increased demand for manga in the States.
Because he was born like that. It’s a mental illness. Be glad he’s venting it via his art instead of raping real children.
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.
Chi no Wadachi / Blood on the Tracks
Started good but now the mangaka is just dragging it out. We don't need 10 chapters of him feeding his senile mother. At least she's dead now.
Did they ever even answer why she pushed that boy?
Honestly, stopped reading anything by that author since everything he writes ends up getting dragged for way too long.
That, and he's a super agp.
Y'all got any recs for anything about adult women with no romance? Josei or seinen demographic preferred.
why of cour-.png
>>31683>Y'all got any recs for anything about adult women
Sure! How abou->with no romance
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.
Oh thank god they finally finished it. They didn't answer anything but at least I can stop having to read chapters and chapters of nothing.
I actually enjoyed the nothingness.
Finally I can pick this up, I've been waiting for it to end
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.>>32020
Why did you wait until it was over?
>>32021>Why did you wait until it was over?
ntn but some people like to wait to read a story/watch a series/etc until after it's finished.
which i kinda get, it sucks binge-reading something a couple chapters a day for days and days on end and suddenly hit the end and now have to sit around waiting for the occasional trickle of an update.
Personally speaking I am terrible at keeping up with ongoing series and will fall off them if I have to wait for new parts.
I absolutely suck at keeping up with manga that's coming out. God forbid it gets dropped by scanlators too and it gets forgotten for a few months/years. Or hiatus.. I completely forget about it kek. I've been hearing a lot of mixed opinions on this manga so I really want to give it a read. Sometimes controversial titles really pique my interest.
Mangadex is banned here so I slowly got back into manga with official apps
I'm patient enough so it works for me and you actually get 8 daily free chapters with MangaUp, anyway
>Mr Villain's day off
cute and wholesome, lots of pandas
>Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun
every chapter is so damn funny, the 4 panels strips work so much better than the anime
>The ice guy and his cool female collegue
cute romance at the workplace but he shows his autism with snow and ice things related, literally
they finally got together in the last chapters
>>32263>Mangadex is banned here
… so what? There are ways around that.
Kowloon Generic Romance
It's weird that it's made by a woman, yet it still features fanservice scenes that cater to the male gaze. There's plenty of panels that objectify the FeMC, but not so much for the MC.
What are your thoughts on fanservice in manga?
>Scoob & Shag
It combines every shonen anime trope with Western cartoon characters. So you basically get Bugs Bunny fighting Scooby Doo with anime powers.https://scoob-and-shag.fandom.com/wiki/Bugs
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. >>32282
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.
>>32281>What are your thoughts on fanservice in manga?
It's good, when it's aimed at me.
>>32274>cue the VPN ads
scanlation groups linking mangadex but reading on other shitty sites and making them money with ads on someone else work made me sad
I actually discovered lots of interesting manga with official apps
>>32314>just threaten suicide to get what you want
not exactly wholesome
I'm currently reading:
>The Zelda Twilight Princess Manga
>The Pokemon XY Manga
>Uzumaki and Tomie by Junji Ito
ANOTHER HIATUS!? A HAPPY NEW YEAR!? NOOOO AOUGASDASADSHAHHHHHHHHHHHHH
