What manga are you currently reading?

Recommended Posts

gintama, gamblefish, shokugeki no soma, soul cartel, gamer, and girls wild.

gintama's mangaka is either batshit insane, or one of the most brilliant minds to ever have a major manga series.  His comedy and references are are way too good, and sometimes way too obscure, even for the japanese.

Soul Eater, finished the anime, jumped to the manga.

20th Century Boys, AMAZING JUST FOUND OUT WHO THE FRIEND IS AND NOW THERE'S A SECOND FRIEND AND ASDSNFSKANF

*ahem* Sorry.

4 Billion Needles, surprisingly good :) It reminds me of Parasyte meets Kill la Kill with a bit of Attack on Titan thrown in for good measure.

 

And I just ordered Akame ga Kill volume 1 and Black Lagoon volume 10. CANNOT CONTAIN MY HYPE FOR BLACK LAGOON VOLUME 10

Unofficlal Hatsune Mix

 

I saw it at the store and I loved the art, so I bought it right away. Pretty much every chapter I have read so far is just awesome. Some chapters can be sad and dramatic and others can be really off the wall funny. It's also nice to see your favorite vocaloids (no Gumi or Ia, sorry) in different situations and what not. Did I mention I love the art? 

 

Front cover of the book:

The color pages inside are wonderful too.

karate shoukoushi kohinata.


This is incredibly similar to hajime no ippo in terms of the characters.  The characters have fleshed out over time, but it's still far too similar.  Two useless guys who eventually become not useless and find their own styles, the main character is an earnest idiot, and a ridiculously powerful macho man gets the main character into the sport, while being manly and mysterious and wild, and a kuu senpai who has a dark back-story who dislikes the main character at first but eventually become rival bros due to MC's determination and gattsu and seems to jump ahead all the time in terms of progression.  Though i don't think there was a hard gay supporting character who tries to sleep rape the mc all the time and sees all women who like the mc as his mortal enemy or an okama supporting character in hajime no ippo, you win that round karate shoukoushi kohinata.

I am reading denpa kyoushi atm but I gotta say that the anime adaptation was rather a let down, more like it feels ridiculous in anime but glorious in anime. Yeah something like that.

Other than that, I really like this manga, too bad that there are no more updates (heard the author is sick or something like that).

So I decided to read a new random manga series today, known as "Seikon no Qwaser". I just.... have no idea what to think about it,

THEY GAIN MAGICAL POWER FROM SUCKING BREASTMILK STRAIGHT FROM THE TEAT

. It would be one thing if they played it for laughs, but it's totes serious with dark friendship betrayals and junk. Well, the series does have a "yuri" tag so I have to see where this is going....

However if u already think that the PLOT is not convincing enough for you to continue it , might as well stop because this is all you are going to get (but yeah there is some good yuri there)

Ohhhh, well I guess I got some stuff to look forward to. I can totally flow with the rest of the chuunibyouesque plot.

 

Yeah, the Denpa Kyoushi anime really was a let down. I actually read all the released chapters the week before it aired and was immediately disgusted by the first episode. It just felt badly put together, they cut all the corners in the animation department.

I recently finished a manga nicknamed KoiLog. It's, like, the funniest most cliche manga ever (SoL/Comedy/Romance/Ecchi), akin to a mere short story standing at only 19 chapters. My absolute favorite due to the lulz, MC being a complete rip-off of TWGOK's Keima, and a story about Eroge (Hey~ I play eroge). 10/10

It taught me how to get a 3D girlfriend!

Just finished this, and it's my favourite. I absolutely love it.

A romance where basically... nothing happens? Well the relationship develops and beyond that they're just living. No incredible drama popping out of nowhere, no tragic backstory, no nothing. (I said backstory, though technically there was, if you count a past breakup which isn't developed all that much)

Manga I've dropped

Manga I'm reading ~ Coppelion 

I picked it up again after dropping it. Post apocalyptic Tokyo with genetically enhanced radiation proof

schoolgirls. Suprisingly deep given the tone

Dropped "Seikon no Qwaser", I was having fun with it untill they seperated Mafuyu Oribe from Sasha for undisclosed obvious bull shit reasons and entered the matrix. Virtual reality is an instant drop flag for me.

 

Decided to reread Horimiya, cause Horimiya is simply god damn awesome.

I follow 87 series, or so Batoto claims, however the ones I always look forward to the most all got updated in like the past 72 hours:

Mahou Tsukai no Yome; The Magus's Bride: Oh my god, this is one is amazing, I cant say anything other than Chise is god damn adorable and realistic.

 

Gate - Thus the JSDF fought there:  Uhhhh, realistic account of what would happen if medival fantasy world collided with ours.  tenoutaten.  Anime coming this Summer, and I hope they don't royally screw it.

 

trash. : This is my guro, I love my hyper gore, and what better way than with mafia hitmen literally slaughtering people.  I found it funny how people complained about how graphic it is, I mean, you expect mafioso to be nice?  :wahaha:

 

Other ones that are hyper enjoyable:

Immortal Hounds: Everyone is immortal and shooting yourself in the head with over the counter bullets is a completely acceptable method of medical treatment.  However, falling in love with people who have a certain disease makes you mortal again.  

 

Re:Marina: A girl from 26 years in the future time travels back in time and claims to be the main character's wife.  She is super deredere and the neglected MC doesn't know how to deal with the amount of LOVE that immediately crashed into his life.

 

Oh my gawd this page in Mahou Tsukai no Yome  :kosame:

Finished "My Balls" (Oretama) a few days ago, I just haven't been posting. It was a fun manga, everything that happened was more or less expected (aside from some of the sex scenes). The ending made me really happy and for 41 (?) chapters it was worth reading. 

 

Started "Pandora Hearts" since I saw it mentioned here I decided to give it a try and it is not disappointing in the least so far.

Read through all the chapters of Hoozuki-San Chi no Aneki. I have to say this is probably my favorite 4-koma manga lol. It's fucked up, it's hilarious, ecchiness, and likeable characters with decent development. Then I read the sequel Hoozuki-San Chi no Aneki + Imouto, and then it's like I don't even know what the fuck is going on anymore Lol. Overall I enjoyed this series a lot though ^.^

Due to a certain recommendation from a certain someone... I finished KoiLog a little while ago. Definitely recommended. 10/10 romcom with ecchi elements.

Main character is hilariously awesome. xD

Reading Omamori Himari, it's been so long since i've seen the anime for it back when i was an anime noob, feels nostalgic to revisit it and realize just how retarded it was and how i'd never have tolerated such an anime today.

Currently reading Iris Zero, it's so amazing! <3

The protag reminds me of Oreki from Hyouka. And I really like the the concept behind it. Convenient irises to irises that seems like a curse... it's really deep.

 

PS: I ship these 2 so much~

Iris Zero makes me cry, its basically on permanent hiatus because the illustrator is sick or something like that.  It's a great story, and one of the few non-yuri romances that I follow :makina: , but due to the hiatus, it might as well have died off because of lost interest.  It's always a shame to see a series that I like randomly die without any real forewarning.
