Reading Citrus.

Bought these thanks to Nosebleed, and guh... I'm loving it :wafuu: Such a shame it's only 4 volumes at the moment. (I swear, if nr.4 ends on a massive cliffhanger, I will cry.)

 

It really does feel like the love child of Strawberry Panic and Girl Friends. You have that cute, funny and light atmosphere from Girl Friends, mixed with dramatic elements, similar to those from Strawberry Panic.

Mei is like, Shizuma's evil twin. Well, her personality at least. 

Yuzu is absolutely hilarious. Really similar to Akko from Girl Friends.

The art is amazing. (Mei is so hawt :pyaa: )

So yeah, I love it. Haven't finished it yet, though I read vol. 1-2 in like, an hour so ... Gotta try to savor the remaining 2 volumes :sacchan:

(All hail yuri!)

I thought you had already read Citrus when I suggested you buy the volumes. :P
I don't usually buy manga without knowing for sure I will like them. I had already read Citrus online and decided to buy the volumes to support the author because it's just a beautiful series.

Another manga I'm thinking of buying when it comes out in 2017, and that I might as well suggest you read it, is "Bloom Into You". I'm still a bit iffy about the plot, but it's definitely a series that manages to grasp your heart.

However, I am prioritizing Hana and Hina After School as my first 2017 purchase. That manga is just too darn good not to be bought.
And if you haven't read it... WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU.

Meh, it's yuri and it seemed like it was very well recieved.

Although it's going to make me sound quite shallow, the fact that it's yuri and seemingly good is enough for me to buy it.

It was the same with Girl Friends actually. I had no idea what it was about, but several people recommended it to me, and I decided to just buy it.

Manga isn't that expensive, and like you said, it does support the creator so.

 

In general though, I tend to do this with both manga, Light novels, anime and VNs actually.

(I have like 20 Mangagamer titles on my computer I have not yet started :sacchan: ) I of course do some research about it before I buy it, (unless it's yuri :makina: ) but yeah.

I have not yet bought something like this that I ended up regretting actually.

Alright, finished Citrus. I loved it. Nuff said :sacchan:

Chapter 4 had a really satisfying ending, so waiting for the next volume wont be that bad. So much yuri stuff to look forward to now, both on the manga and VN front.

 

Anyways, guess I should move over to Hana to Hina wa Houkago now, because I have not read it and I don't want to be banned by Nosebleed for being a scrub :michiru:

Pls no bully Nosebleed-sama.

I bought the first volume of Tokyo Ghoul since one of my friends is a huge fan and kept recommending it. The anime kept in line up to this point so I don't have any outstanding opinion of the manga. However, the anime did get shit and the manga supposedly does the opposite, something to look forward to. 

On other notes, I am desperately waiting for Akame ga Kill to be finished with. I just wish to mark it "completed" on MAL and be done with it. No new chapters of Minamoto-kun in months is disappointing, along with the slow release schedule of the other four publishing manga I read :amane: Though I am getting the TL's for free so not much room to complain, and I should hurry up with my Japanese so I no longer need the English TL's in the first place.

if you are a male, and looking for some good comedy check out kangoku gakuen . It's about 5 males that are the first and only ones accepted into a previously all female academy. They're also pretty much all pervets so far but the jokes and reactions they have are golden. (and they are actual, funny perverts not complete chicken ones like the protag from highschool dxd) only on chapter 4 rn but will update

So after purchasing all the volumes of Sankarea, and completely devouring them in days, I've finally started to read Deadman Wonderland. I could only afford the first three volumes for now unfortunately and I've already finished them. :vinty:

But it's my fourth year anniversary being with my significant other on the 25th of this month, and she's getting me three more volumes as part of my present! :miyako:

I have to say, I don't own much manga at the moment, I only have the first Dragon Ball manga boxset that I purchased years ago (extremely gutted that I can't get the Dragon Ball Z boxset anymore to finish that collection) and all the volumes of Ouran High School Club, and several volumes of Blue Exorcist, and of course most recently all the volumes of Sankarea. Deadman Wonderland's volumes are by far the most high-quality looking manga I own currently. The books look really well-made and the first couple of pages are in full-colour, I don't have any manga with colour pages currently, so it was a pleasant surprise for myself. ^_^

Also still slowly reading Prison School, but I don't really enjoy reading manga online, I have to have the actual books to enjoy them if I'm honest. Well, my current manga reading goal is to complete my Deadman Wonderland collection and finish them all, and then I'll move back on to Blue Exorcist to catch up where they're at in the official English translations.

At Nosebleed's recommendation, I finally read 'Nineteen, Twenty-One'. Didn't expect it to be quite so nyantastic.

Okay, in all seriousness, I wasn't expecting it to be mainly a story about cats. Sure, it had pretty imagery, sure, it had many other themes, but I don't care about any of that, I only wanted romance and the dosage I got was lighter than I had predicted.

Latest Gintama chapter:

Spoiler

Well, seems it's seriously over now. Sorachi said back then that Gintama will truly be over when Madao stops being Madao. It has been an great ride.

I've picked ReLIFE back up after having it on hold for some time. Oh man, if I had known the feels I was in for in the later chapters, I wouldn't have put it down as soon as I did. The character development is fantastic.

Kaizaki's trolling is pretty damn good too. :wahaha:

There's a couple more pages in between, but I'm only using these 2.

So I marathoned Nisekoi. Yes I know there's a thread for it by itself but this seemed more appropriate here since everyone on that thread seems to hate it now.  I rarely read manga these days but I fell for this series from the TV anime series. It killed me that I couldn't see how the story went yet I absolutely refused to start reading the manga before it was finished. I kept hoping for news of a 3rd season or more that would end concurrently with the manga (like they did with FMAB) but alas that didn't happen so reading the manga was the obvious choice once it was completed. It took me almost 2 and a half days to read through it all from start to finish (with other regular daily commitments) which is the longest stretch I've ever marathoned a manga ever. It was 95% as I predicted it would be but by the same token it was thoroughly enjoyable at all times in its execution of said predictable plot and I couldn't stop grinning like a fool half the time. I'm so glad I didn't start reading before it was finished as the suspense would have killed me. It reminded me an awful lot of the first time I read Love Hina and it was very obvious it was paying homage to it in many ways. For those purists who always complain about the anime, I still think season 1 is an exceptional rendition of what's in the manga and even though season 2 just picked and chose from the chapters that had already been written so far rather than try to stick linearly to the plot, each of those anime episodes were also excellent renditions of the chapters as they are in the manga and their selection of chapters to use worked in animated form IMO. Even though I know all the story now, if a final/next season was to be animated, I would religiously watch it and likely enjoy it more than almost all other new anime coming out if it's done with the same production qualities and cast. Knowing the on-screen version and voice actors before the manga helped flesh out the characters in my head as I read the manga version, giving them voice and more motion in my head. I also feel a sense of relief knowing no one can spoil it for me. That may have been my greatest motivator in reading it.

What do you use to read manga on your PC?
I have used CDisplay for years but it is starting to get annoying that it reads alphabetically and not numerically.
IE, if something is numbered 1,2,,3,10,20,30 it reads 1,10,2,20,3,30. and not 1,2,3,10,20,30.
So everything i read has to be numbered 01,02,03,10,20,30/

Read Shokugeki no Souma and watching the anime at the same time, let's just said that I'm quite interested of the possibility that Moon Viewing Festival arc afterward will be animted or not. Personally I wish it will be animated, considering that I kind of looking forward of how Erina know about Soma family in the anime. Well, looks like I'll just waiting again here if you ask me to continuing reading seeing that this is one of ongoing manga there.

I've dropped Buddha, mostly because I just can't stand the disneyesque art+random jokes+fourth wall-breaks in an otherwise super-moral and epic plot. Also, I just know it's never going to become as deep as I want it to be. I just get the feeling Tezuka only understands Buddhism on a surface level and will just keep the story revolving around ethics and the cycle of life. I might try reading Phoenix some day, but right now I'm not really interested in any of Tezuka's other work anymore.

Since I've gotten' myself a laptop now, I think I'll be able to find it more enjoyable in reading manga online. So I'm planning on continuing reading Prison School and Tokyo Ghoul: RE.

I'm trying to build up my physical manga collection up, but I really need to focus on sorting out on redecorating my room first. I'm getting the remaining volumes of Deadman Wonderland this Christmas, so I'm looking forward in continuing the story then.

I very rarely read manga but recently I decided to read Uzumaki and Berserk. Uzumaki is so fucking frightening, love it. Berserk is interesting. Just reached the Golden Age arc and stopped there but I hear that that arc is where things get good so I'm excited for it.
