Title: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Gummster on March 28, 2007, 10:21:26 am
Since there is a 'What animé are you watching' thread I thought why not have the same kind of thread, except about manga. So it's basicly you just say what manga you're reading and if you want you can tell something about it.
I'll go first.
I'm currently reading:
Samurai Deeper Kyo, great manga goes more into the details then the animé, and there are no freaky monsters, that's a bonus.
Battle Royale, so much better then the movie, more characters and more gore, follows the storyline better to, and it goes more into the details.
Elfen Lied, I have to admit that the first 60 chapters weren't that great, because it was almost exactly like the animé or actually it's vica versa, but after that it's more fun.
Gantz, I don't even have to say ow great that manga is, there even is a special thread about that one.
Hellsing, I can't describe the awesomeness of that one, it's not just entertainment, it's art!

Well why don't more people join in!

Felt as I should revive this thread because of all the new peeps.

I just started reading a manga called Akuma Jintei. I like it, although i think it's kinda too much of an 'wannabe-famous-manga' it's a drag down but it's nice anyways.

I also found lying on a shelf in a bookstore the three first volumes of Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic days. I bought it seeing that I had never read it before I thought what I saw to be interesting. In short I love it, the cheerful Rei thing is beautiful!

all I know it's been months since they've released Gunslinger Girl here.  In Japan they're up to Vol. 8.  I mean, I know Yu Aida is slow in releasing them, but if that's slow, ADV is glacially slow. :P

Post by: Gummster on June 06, 2007, 12:49:47 pm
Hmmm... well since it's so good why did you forget it hmm?

Anyways I started reading something called Demon Diary, I thought it wouldbe good because of the name, and I wasn't wrong. It's really good, fun and all that, although it is a shojo manga mind you, so if you don'ðt like love stories, you won't like this. But if you do like love stories, I recommend it.

@zjhen
Yup, i recommend you to read doujin based on TOUHOU games.
Ah, and also, find a parody of FF7:advent children with touhou characters. The title is Advent Cirno, short doujin but i think it's really amazing.

Post by: Raffaele the Amigan on August 13, 2007, 04:08:38 am
Actually reading:

Berserk

Keroro Gunso

(http://static.blogo.it/comicsblog/KeroroGunso.jpg)


Ah My goddess

(it started again from number 1, because old magazine which published it eventually closed, and splitted in four different magazines! DARN!)

Gundam Origins

(What a great thing to read again Gundam 0079 with drawings made by its original author Yoshikazu Yasuhiko!)

(http://manga.kaobang.com/images/gundam_origins-3.jpg)


Sakura Wars

("Sakura Taisen" from Kosuke Fujishima, the same author of "Ah, My Goddess", and not to be confused with CardCaptor Sakura)

(http://www.manganet.de/p/picts_225_225/SakuraWars225_rdax_225x225_60.jpg)


And when new tankobon (volumes) are ready from Japan, I also read:

Homunculus

Dorohedoro

Steel Ball Run

(http://image.blog.livedoor.jp/kodamu623/imgs/d/9/d9dde360.jpg)


Also reading:

Mickey Mouse and all its associate publications here in Italy:

Mickey Mouse Magazine
Donald Duck Magazine
Uncle Scrooge Magazine
Great Classics of Mickey Mouse
Paperinik Magazine
Minnie Mouse Magazine
Enigms and Mysteries of Mickey Mouse

Donald Duck, in the costume of his alter-ego "Paperinik" the super hero, a.k.a.  "Duck Avenger" or "Phantom Duck".

(http://www.girodivite.it/antenati/immagini/imgcartoons/paperinik2.jpg)


Also I am reading italian comics, such as:

Nathan Never (special agent in the future)

You need a view of it to understand how it is:

(http://www.girodivite.it/antenati/immagini/imgcartoons/nathan_never1.jpg)

(http://www.fantascienza.com/magazine/imgbank/NEWS/nat00187.jpg)


Martin Mystère (the detective of impossible)

He is a scientist who indagates unsolved mysteries of the past, improbable situations, alien invasions, time travelling and who always solves it with a bit of humor...

I really love this comic, smart, intelligent, full of culture, many many quotes, and humor!

He is also addict of Macintosh machines since Mac Plus!

Julia

An attempt to recreate a character (who resembles like Audrey Hepburn) as a Universitary Reader in Criminology:

(http://www.amazingcomics.it/john_doe_4.jpg)

(http://www.stratelibri.it/catalog/images/John-Doe.jpg)



[EDIT]

Oh... I forgot to mention I read also W.I.T.C.H. Magazine from Buena Vista Comics (Disney) an italian shoujo-majokko which mix-up western style, Disney style, and Manga style.

Ah, the reason being, is that the anime showed by the accursed 4Kids is really the second season, so I'd guess that the manga you read was the very, very beginning. ^^

PUMPKIN SCISSORS!

I can't remember how long I've waited for a semi-realistic war manga & anime without mecha, magical girls, and/or stupid. Episode order aside, the anime is proving to be very true to the manga, right down to the frame angle in most cases. Very much recommended.

I tend to stay away from the "popular" mangas on my local bookstore, unless it is a manga I know a lot about. Anything I read, or watch, or take into my body is put under rigid inspection. I am -not- a religious freak, quite the opposite, but there is so much mind numbing stuff out there, it is sometimes hard to find a manga you like.

I want to finish the Sailor Moon manga ( So pretty. .  we all have our guilty pleasures! ) and -finally- get a manga I saw years ago, Clover. There is another one I'm looking for, something along the lines of Aqua Knights or whatnot. Again, I haven't seen it for years, and I now that I have my own income I wanna play catchup! <3

Quote from: "Smokey"srsly how do you keep something interesting for that long? it's not a sitcom or something like that...


That's because you didn't read the manga! For the anime, i too don't like it... it's too much incoherent interlude story that makes it no fun to watch.... it's totally different from the source story(manga)...

As for the manga, i find it really interesting..... the story is hard to guess, not like some movie or drama in my country.... and every chapter always leave you anxious for the next chapter more and more...

It's hard to describe it with words.... why don't you try it yourself? Read the manga and you'll understand...!

Currently reading Type Moon Complex X. Note though, it is NOT H-manga.
Yes, it's actually a Fan Art Doujin, but despite fan art, it is really good. Created by CCC.
BTW, Anyone know where to find the translated version? They have created many doujin, but so far only Type Moon Complex X have been translated.
Title: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Vaereth on May 01, 2009, 04:32:38 pm
Type Moon Complex X...don't read it actually but saw some pages and liked detailed representation of it  ^_^  On Russian it translated only 4 vol and can't find any on English((

BTW right now reading 1/2 Prince. Star to read cuz the story starts in MMORPG world with 99% of reality XD Just thought it will be funny story and it appers to be it and it just reflects everyday MMO situations XD
Title: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Seamore on May 02, 2009, 02:13:39 am
Well, the english ones are also only 4 volume translated. I have it though. Because of this, somehow I really interested in some of doujin manga, and surprisingly, some of them are really good despite almost all of them really short. My other favourite doujin manga is "Childcare is War".
1/2 Prince? Looks interesting. Worth to check it out.

1/2 Prince is hilarious. Do check out.
Also reading Akumetsu, and the three giants that are Negima, One Piece and Bleach.
Other stuff that might be interesting is Vinland Saga (OH HELL YES VIKINGS), Franken Fran (mad scientist GIRL? rawr!), Hajimete no Aku (modificationsXreverse sudden girlfriend appearance, aka Sudden Boyfriend Appearance), Beelzebub (OH HELL YES DEMONS and...naked babies? wut.) and of course TLR. Do I seem like a person to read and enjoy reading harem mango? I dunno, but TLR is just enjoyable, somehow.

Claymore? I've seen the anime. And boy did I regret watching the anime. The ending what makes it leave a bitter taste. At least the manga are better says some of my friend. Errr....women with swords? I prefer women with guns, like Mahoro with her twin magnum (mind you, I'm not talking to THAT direction). But for some unknown reason, I hate Lara Croft.

I read all sorts :-) I tend to really like CLAMP a lot and XXXHolic is great I think I read through Vol. 13 is it? I also read Bleach and a lot off off beat stuff that would make the list here very long( for eample the hating girl. I looked into the Kampfer Manga is which is different and I think worth reading. Though there are a lot of light novels of that will most likely never see the light of day. Think my favorite Manga IF i had to name one would be Gantz. Its over 24 vols long and in its final phase according to the Mangaka. That one has it all! Violance, Sex, Scifi, awesome weapons etc. As I tell people one of the fastest reads out there...

Well all of Rocketfuel 21s doujin are awesome. Im glad Zun picked them to do it.  There is one series of them Ive yet to see the end of, i dont think its complete, but its an Alice x Patchy one where they both think the other likes Marisa. Also, Remi in SSiB is the best. LETS GO TO THE MOON IN A ROCKETSHIP.

Personaly I love Inaba, but I dont hate Kaguya. I dislike the NEET personality fanon gives her, but in canon shes a whimsical light hearted person and funny to watch.  IN is also the best game (danmaku wise) and I love the story to it. Also, I have an affinity to Reisen so a 4koma comic focusing on her is awesome.

Post by: NejinOniwa on February 17, 2010, 12:53:01 pm
I realized that my kaguhaet might partly be due to my Mokou-ism...so many times more awesome than Kaguya, she is. Mokou <3~

Not really, Horos at least a B or C cup. But you can never be too careful with them Australians and their anti-pedo laws *More-so if said Manga is drawn by the erotic doujin meister Koume Keito* -w-.

Now attempting *Attempting as in the only Korean I know is where's the bathroom and Is their pork in this* to read a South Korean Manga about what it seems a Racing Queen who sings and poses to make Motorcycles go faster??? *Ala Macross*.

Actually Rinnsosuke x keine is a popular pairing for her. I prefer kagu x moko as they are ying and yang, they compliment each other perfectly.  Firey tomboy and dainty princess, white and black. Both Keine and Eirin seem to me part of that ying and yang, as both of them have someone thats nuts about them that is their comfort and care giver, and both of which may be gone some day (Eirin also taking the hourai elixer is a fanon assumption, I think shes too wise for that) and in the end, its going to be just Kaguya and Mokou. They are each others most important person and they will always be there for each other. Besides if you look how they interact in canon works, mokou x kaguya is practicly canon :p

There really should be a shipping thread...

Anyhow, like I was saying, I'm drafting out a Kagu x moko doujin revolving around Moko trying to restore her fathers honor to settle things (Keines saggestion) so she sets off to complete the impossible tasks from the Kaguyahime legend (which no mortal could complete, but for Mokou...) and when she does Kaguya takes it as a marrige proposal. Halarity ensues.

Post by: NejinOniwa on February 18, 2010, 03:07:42 am
That sounds like an interesting setting indeed -w- Fight-o with it, hope it comes out well!


Still can't say I agree with you on the KaguXMokou, and frankly Rinnosuke-ing just about ANYONE seems so much like wasting a character (MarisaXRinnosuke is possibly the worst pairing ever in my book) - I suppose the lack of definite male characters (and the presence of MANnosuke) makes anything but strawberry-mode rageworthy as hell. Not that I dislike (regular) Rinnosuke as a character, but, well, yeah, being the sole male just about anywhere where there is a strong female cast makes you pretty disqualified...plus, he's weak. -.-

...yeah, it definitely seems like we need a pairing thread. >_>

I just found that one >.<

Oh yeah, the "Yandere" in the title apparently is a combination of Yankee and Tsundere, rather then, you know, an actual Yandere.

Couple of manga series I've caught up on; Dageki Joi Saori was pretty good "But where did the panther go?".  Plus more Yankee-kun to Megane-chan.  It just keeps getting even more epic.

Not to mention Negima approaches the big battle with fate.  I'm going to be seriously pissed without a serious Setsuna on Tsukoyomi battle here.

Borya, so far the longest has taken up an entire tankōbon and the build up for this one is already at 1 1/2 I think.  Probably overestimating BUT THERE ARE *spoiler alert* AT LEAST FOUR FATES (unbeliveably high level bosses no one but the two most powerful characters in story has managed to beat {neither of them are there at the moment} and that was only one) PLUS THREE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTY MEMBERS ARE OUT OF IT AT THE MOMENT!

Excellent, excellent.  She does now, that's what Minami's for.

Just finished reading a fantastic oneshot manga, only thing is THAT WAS THE MOST UNSATISFACTORY END EVER!!!!! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Okay, well, there are a few others BUT STILL.

Eagerly wait for the next chapter every week for both... Translation teams of BreakBlade have fallen behind.
And I've watched the entire anime first season for TWGOK and the 2 OVA...movie....things for BreakBlade so far.

No idea, it's extremely obscure to be charitable.  But I don't think it's a long runner, so it'll probably end with this second volume.

(late)@bella: come down here. with nearly 400 volumes, you're bound to find something in my collection you'd like. :\

recently got "Strawberry Panic: The Complete Manga Collection". read it full through, but either the series was never finished or it left off at an extreme cliffhanger. this was quite dissapointing, as while it had more than the volume i already had (vol. 1), it never finished the plot, dissapointing for an interesting story such as this. :\ i'm gonna have to look it up, and hopefully there's more manga to be had, or at least more story. :\

i meant to get volume 2 of i am here!, but i missed my chance to get it. that's likely going to be my next acquisition.

(i also recently got a manga called Genkaku Picasso. i love it. i wanna get the next volume. the art style is so different from other mangas (it looks like everyone's wearing lipstick, lol!!), and the plot is really original. combine that with the artsy motifs and the mindfucks involved, and it makes for a pretty cool story.

never mind the fact that the main character is technically a walking dead. xDD

hmm. maybe i should pick up a copy, it might finally get me into haruhi.

manga i'm on the lookout for:
i am here #2
bunny drop #3
honey hunt #3
kimi ni todoke #3
the wallflower #7
high school debut #3

i have alot of unfinished series (in fact, i only have 2 or 3 completed series, one of those was never finished anyway, and i have another series i'm missing #2 of), but these are the ones that are really catching my brain right now. :3

also, i just learned that i wasn't jipped out of a story; strawberry panic's manga was never finished in japan, either. however, there seem to be more light novels and anime than manga, so i might torrent one or both. :\

It takes a ton of practice to get good at making smooth/organic-looking shapes in Inkscape ... but it's certainly (http://c-quel.deviantart.com/art/OpenVMS-tan-Portraiture-109960791) not (http://c-quel.deviantart.com/art/Fried-Chicken-Linux-Abraxas-106925356) impossible (http://c-quel.deviantart.com/art/Ubuntu-and-Puppy-XP-Recovery-110863756).

If it's any consolation, C-chan was self-admittedly a poor artist when it came to handdrawn stuff (he complained about his hands not being steady enough) yet managed to become one of the (if not THE) best Inkscape artists I've ever known (at least as far as anime/manga-style works go).

@stew: you might benefit from a set of french curves. :\

and yeah, inkscape is useful for making pin-straight lines/curves. idk how people make art that doesn't look like it's from a design student, though. :\

(and practice makes perfect ^^)

No you aren't, you're one of the best writers i know personally. :z I can't comment on your visual art skills since you don't seem particularly interested in doing visual art...

@stew: if you can draw a stick figure, you're an artist. whether or not you're willing to improve upon that is up to you.

tell you what. i made an animoo/mango doodlin' tutorial for nej (but i sent it with him back to sweden before i could upload it to DA), so i'll make another and upload it and you can use it if you wish. >>;

as for inkscape, i had to learn it by poking at the various buttons till i got something to work. now, i can make simple stuff with it, like the game board i made. if you'd like, i'll make a tutorial for that too, since if you say bella didn't make sense, maybe i could have a crack at it. but don't expect to be working MOTHERFUCKING MIRACLES like C did; i can't even get results that good in gimp. (not due to program flaws, but due to lack of ability. i plan on using markers whenever possible since i take forever to colour one picture digitally. >>;;; )

I'm slowly filling in the gaps in my Bleach collection. Maybe if I find them cheap enough, I might do the same for Naruto; since I ended up with volumes 1 and 14

Since the subject of tutorials came up - I made two walkthroughs illustrating my drawing/coloring process.

The sketch: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BxyuHH7Q0xWyTkJWVzZqRUcxMjg

The coloring (part 1): https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BxyuHH7Q0xWyTEhsMThWSkp0U0E

Download them for best quality. No annotations, unfortunately, maybe if I stop feeling lazy I'll add some. (Though the really aren't meant to be tutorials, but a glimpse into my creative process.)

@Pent - if you want to learn to draw, the only advice I can give is start drawing! It can be anything - faces, flowers, stick figures in different poses, household items, scenes, animals, even working on penmanship / playing with lettering and text. A really important part of drawing (that a lot of people overlook) is developing the hand-eye coordination / a steady enough hand to produce more "advanced" drawings. Most art books jump right into tutorials on drawing certain things without suggesting random doodling (and the hand-eye coordination it helps improve) as a vital part of the learning process.
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on May 12, 2012, 07:31:56 pm
that's because most (good) art books focus on a specific subject. there's a reason that the original HtDM series has 43 volumes released (in america) over a course of about 10 years. the cheaper (good) ones still focus on a particular subject, such as my first How to Draw Manga book (not part of the series) focused mainly on figures, but had a chapter on objects, textiles, and shiny stuff. anything that tries to get everything into one book is a piece of shit not worth your pennies.

that said, the way you're describing drawing sounds like a contour line drawing. while it works for some, for others (like me), it sucks. not to say it's not a good method, but plenty of people need a tutorial to get started. once they have the base built, then they can work on the detailed stuff.

also, why are those on google docs? what is the deal with google docs and drop box being so popular these days? and what are they, videos or images or something? :\

just to keep up, i'll upload a cliffnotes tutorial either later today or tomorrow. >>;
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Bella on May 12, 2012, 07:36:37 pm
They're PDF files. Using Google as a host since there are no good, free PDF hosting sites. And I already have a Google account, which means I don't have to sign up for some sketchy-ass filehosting site that may or may not have insane rules/file size limits.

Post by: Chocofreak13 on June 16, 2012, 08:40:36 pm
got two new ones yesterday, Kare First Love and Imadoki Nowadays (vol 1 on both).

The former i picked out mainly because the main character's name is Karin Karino (my mother's name is Karen and her facebook name is Karina, so i cracked up when i saw it), but when i started reading it i devoured it in almost 2 hours (had to stop reading for a bit cause i was in the car). i want MOOOOAR. ;^; maybe i'm on a shojo binge or something.
it's wicked cute, and involves this nerdy girl somehow falling into the lap (almost literally!) of this pretty boy. doesn't help that her 'best friend" (more like blonde leech) likes the guy, where as she couldn't care less. however, over the course of the first volume, she warms to him, much to the chagrin of the bitch (her new name in my opinion). we left off on a cliffhanger, so i'ma have to go back to Double Midnight Comics (lovely comic shop in Manchester, NH, stop in if you're ever in the area, DO EET!!!) to get more cause it was cheap ($4!!!).

as for the latter, i picked it up after reading the back, not realizing who wrote/drew it. when i realized it was done by Watase Yu (author of my most hated guilty-pleasure manga, Absolute Boyfriend), i was all like "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO" but then i decided to make the best of it, hoping it wouldn't have a BAD END like Absolute Boyfriend (god i hate that manga but i couldn't stop reading it, it was like fucking crack). read the first volume, and it turned out to be surprisingly mild given the author, largely due to the sunny, ditzy nature of the main character. the main male character bears a striking resemblance to the main male of Absolute, but i'm chalking that up to art style. Imadoki was quite cute, and i'm looking forward to the next volume. plus, i got it on the cheap (another $4, WHOO!!).
The main character gets into a FANCY-SCHMANTZY PRIVATE AS FUCK high school where 95% of the population got in due to nepotism and money, making her an outcast from the start. her love of plants combined with her name (Tanpopo, meanding "Dandelion") and a little stunt she pulls involving an IMPASSIONED SPEECH and a beat-up dandelion earn her the nickname "weed". desperate to make friends and to be a rebel without a cause, she starts a gardening committee, which involves acts of vandalism via planting real flowers (since all the plants on campus are fake due to a convenient plot twist in the form of a weirdly strict school rule). a covert bitch signs up to help, as at first it was Popo and the main male character (who is not only cold but inspires further bullying for poor Popo due to a sort of idol-worship involving the entire student body with him). Tsuki, as the bitch is called by Popo (ironic considering Tsuki means "Like" while simultaneously being a shorter version of her name, Tsukiko) covertly bullies poor Popo while she is none the wiser, though she discovers this at the end (but due to her ditzy nature misintreprets this as a love rivalry, which it ends up being for all the wrong reasons). at the end of all, Popo INSPIRES A REVOLUTION and ends up starting to get her original goal, which was to force the male character to be friends with her.

i kind of can't wait to read more. :3

Actually I am reading Berserk and Guyver (but they got updated very slowly -sometimes even at a rate of one publishing any six months-)

Also I read Soul Eater ( it was just for sale volume 19 three days ago), Rinne from Rumiko Takahashi (yep. Mrs Urusei Yatsura got back with humor again)

And in the end I am enjoining Bakuman, Mirai Nikki and Cloth Road.

[Edit] I made really lot of laughs reading a three volumes only manga named Thermae Romae

Pure humor [insert ASD smiley here]. Mamiya Sakura is a girl who sees ghosts and helps them to reincarnate. A classmate of her, Rokudo Rinne, never got to school. She believes he is dead. Once she encounters him and nobody is capable to see the guy. So she got the idea that he is really dead.
No! He is a Shinigami wearing a magic coat that makes him invisible to perform his missions. And he needs money to perform any magic act or buy magic items. LOL! :D

also, i both lol'd and deadpanned that the guy's last name is Rinne, since there's a song with a similar message called Lynne. (it's in japanese, so it could be pronunced either Lynne or Rynne/Rinne.)

got the last volume of Imadoki! the other day. have been too busy to read it.

As long Rinne stands for re-incarnarnation it has various meanings...

Shingeki no kyojin ( the attack of the giants), but it is on sale any three months so I ever forgot I buyed issue 1 and 2.

ever considered looking online? sure, being patient for your book is annoying, but i only paid $.01 for the last volume of Imadoki! (before shipping, but even with it i saved $6 vs the list price). i reccomend amazon. (also, unless you can and will spend a bit on books and plan to get a bunch, i'd ignore the super-saver shipping deals.)

speaking of which, i read the last volume of Imadoki! the other day. thoughts include "DIE BITCH ERIKA" and "NOES GRANDPA" and "HOLY CRAP THAT'S CUTE Y U NO HAVE MOAR".

currently working my way through DN Angel, next is Demon Sacred.

note to self: update the manga list.

Since there is a 'What animé are you watching' thread I thought why not have the same kind of thread, except about manga. So it's basicly you just say what manga you're reading and if you want you can tell something about it.
I'll go first.
I'm currently reading:
Samurai Deeper Kyo, great manga goes more into the details then the animé, and there are no freaky monsters, that's a bonus.
Battle Royale, so much better then the movie, more characters and more gore, follows the storyline better to, and it goes more into the details.
Elfen Lied, I have to admit that the first 60 chapters weren't that great, because it was almost exactly like the animé or actually it's vica versa, but after that it's more fun.
Gantz, I don't even have to say ow great that manga is, there even is a special thread about that one.
Hellsing, I can't describe the awesomeness of that one, it's not just entertainment, it's art!

Well why don't more people join in!



The last manga I read was the deadman wonderland manga. The anime was good too.

vol. 1-11 of Strawberry 100% (i now have doubles of 1 and 2)
doubt!! vol. 1 (read, twas enjoyable)
beast master vol. 1 (read, also enjoyable, and mum enjoyed it too [YAY I FINALLY GOT HER INTO MANGA])
My HiME vol. 1-5 (complete)
Crescent Moon vol. 1-3 (the ones i paid for; have read about half of vol. 1 but it's in a pile somewhere and have yet to dig it out)

also, dunno if it counts, but i've really been getting into buying/reading anime periodicals. 2 of them are from the UK, and the last is from the US, and all are enjoyable, if a tad expensive. :3

Anybody got any recommendations for manga?
Because I haven't really read any commercial manga... doujins but that's it really.

Preferably something akin to Lucky Star/Acchi Kocchi/anything that is SOL or yonkoma.
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on June 01, 2013, 06:50:13 pm
hm, a lighthearted series?

well, k-on started out as a yonkoma. yotsuba&! might be to your liking, too. there's also school rumble, harukaze bitter bop and dr. slump, but the 3 of those are kind of ancient relics by now. ^^;

Post by: Bella on June 02, 2013, 02:31:20 am
I was gonna recommend Azumanga Daioh too ... my endorsement should probably be taken with a grain of salt though, as I've seen a only a few episodes of the anime and managed to read through a small part of the complete collection while hanging around a Books-a-Million last week. ^^;

Sometimes I read shit on Dynasty and just ponder..... what the fuck.

Yuri Mekuru Hibi is funny though, so its worth the reading.

Fly by Yuri's probably my favorite scanlation group/single person now.  She's got an excellent eye for yuri oneshots.

why do publishers license manga and then just leave them? it would have been better had they never licensed it at all. :\
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: stewartsage on July 06, 2013, 08:47:45 pm
Sometimes they go out of business too, and leave the manga without a distributor.
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on July 06, 2013, 10:16:36 pm
yeah, that's what happened with Iono-sama fanatics, but 90% of the time it's from a well-known brand. in the case of tokyopop i sometimes forgive it, especially for later titles, but Gamerz Heaven was released by ADV and had 2 volumes to go (out of 4). wtf. >>;

speaking of, they released 16 volumes of Reborn!. they left off in the middle of a super-potent arc [spoiler](the cast flash-forwards to the future and finds that the main character is dead)[/spoiler], leaving the fans quite confused. ><;

or in the case of Seven Seas, if a manga doesn't sell well enough, they stop releasing it. even if they're only one volume away. they don't even release it online. and most of the series they drop are Yuri titles, which is a small enough genre already. >>;


was reading a Yaoi manga the other day called Jazz. i almost skipped getting it, because the book was placed facing away from me so i didn't know it was a June title. glad i checked, since i saved over 90% on it. -w-
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Penti-chan on July 06, 2013, 11:52:49 pm
I remember when Viz cancelled the original run of the Pokémon Adventures manga. They at least waited until the Yellow arc finished, but it ended with a sequel hook for the Gold\Silver arc...and they dropped the series and didn't translate the first volume of that arc until nearly 10 years later when they finally listened to the fans :\

Now, the Kingdom Hearts manga still pisses me off; as they did release every volume of it in the US, and yet it still wasn't finished, as the series was cancelled in the middle of Kingdom Hearts II because they wanted to start over from the beginning with light novels. If they had at least finished the KH2 story arc before ending it, I wouldn't have minded so much, but the final KH2 volume ends basically as soon as the story really begins >_<;
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on July 07, 2013, 02:13:23 am
that's more the artist's fault than the publisher, honestly. :\

in the case of Stand By Youth, however, they were ONE volume away from finishing. one or two. (out of 5.) ik Tokyopop went under, but COME ON. >>;
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: stewartsage on July 07, 2013, 07:57:37 pm
Yeah, but at least Seven Seas imports yuri.  Almost nobody else bothers.
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on July 07, 2013, 08:15:27 pm
true, but with that in mind you'd think they'd be more diligent about it. at least, that's what a good person would do. seven seas seems to take the douche approach of "oh, no one else is doing it, so i can do what i want! *tosses book carelessly on floor*"

did i mention here that i had updated my manga listing? i'll post a link later in case i forgot. i'm thinking i should start reading some of the stuff i haven't, especially since i can whip through a volume in like, 20 minutes when i'm on a roll.

now that i've finished the anime, i'm thinking of collecting the manga of Video Girl Ai. :3

Aw whaaaat, they have I am Here vol 2?

Nothing notable from Dynasty, just my A-Channel fix.  Not sure Overload's still in operation since their website's down which makes me sad...
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on July 19, 2013, 08:05:04 pm
herly shert, you like I Am Here! ? :000

you know what's funny, i had been staring at my copy of vol. 1 for days beforehand thinking, "i really liked that one! i should read it again!" and lo and behold, they have volume 2. -w-

at some point i need to buy it (2) :0
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: stewartsage on July 19, 2013, 10:24:13 pm
Yeah, I've got volume one around somewhere but I've not seen 2 in stores around here yet.
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on July 20, 2013, 12:19:53 am
i was aware some sort of 2 existed, but i had never seen it. doesn't help that i bought volume 1 at borders, which proceeded to go bankrupt, go out of business, and have their space turned into all manner of stores, from a seasonal shop to a building-themed toy store, leaving the mall bookless. >>;

i just always figured i'd get it online. at the very least, there's a good chance the manga will be completely released, given it was being put out by Del Rey.

@Kari: The mall in Tyler has been bookless since '00 or so; when B. Dalton closed down :\

...so that's where my post for Topicless went. I swear I posted that, but it was missing fairly quickly, so I reposted it :\

Also, apparently I got topics mixed up again; as the relevant bit I was replying to was here and not in Topicless. This is what happens when you're tired and also sidetracked

i think it does, in a way. not officially, but hey, you just read a comic, go you!

almost through with Magical x Miracle vol. 2. after that, either Beauty Pop vol. 1 or Neck and Neck vol. 1.

I'm totally up to date on my K-Ons.  I also need to check to see if any new chapters of Yuki-chan have been posted though.  Pretty much the only series I'm following regularly since Negima ended has been A-Channel, since Yandere Kanojo has so many formats it appears in with different (but still relevant) events in each I've really given up hope of continuing without a guide.

*pats shoulder* good choice, leaf! that's my drawing series of choice! I do believe I have that volume, to boot. :3

the series is excellent! taught me most of what I know. the books started (in japan) in the mid 90's and went for 42 volumes (the original series, anyway, there are spinoffs) till the mid 00's. they are very professional, but still accessible by newbies, making them a really invaluable resource in a sea of gimmicky fad books. I recommend collecting them as I do, since they cover such a wide range of topics. however, remember that these ARE Japanese, so there may be a lot of materials that you can't get from the local store (such as tone, pen bodies and nibs, etc etc).

if you have any questions about drawing or the other books, leaf, i'd be happy to advise you over Skype. ^^

Post by: Chocofreak13 on December 03, 2013, 08:29:56 pm
np, man. I can recommend other books after you move on from that one. (this (http://www.amazon.com/How-Draw-Manga-Getting-Started/dp/4921205000) was actually the first one in the series I got, it's a pretty basic book so if you want another text to cover a wide, basic range, i'd get this one next. if you're struggling on a particular topic (a lot of guys I know your age who like to draw have trouble drawing women, for example, and I'm still not super-confident with drawing guys), just mention it and I can recommend the particular book. just beware that, as these are art books intended to prepare you to be a pro, they may contain some nudity depending on the book. )

considering their age and wide range of topics, though, a lot of these books get kinda expensive on the resale market. don't even ask me how much the yaoi or animal books go for.... >>;

Just sorting through the most recent offerings on Dynasty.  There's been a new batch of A-Channel out recently.

I've mentioned it before but I feel adrift without Negima or K-On! to read anymore.  They were my two ongoing series I followed closely and without them I'm kinda lost.  A-Channel's stepped up to fill the gap and honestly I think I like it more then K-On!.
Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on March 26, 2014, 03:32:19 pm
got a buttload of manga at the con. read The Return of Lum - Urusei Yatsura: Creature Features yesterday (funny and adorable, especially when you remember how much they had to smoosh things together to make these books, taking episodes from season 1 and smooshing them with elements from subsequent seasons, etc etc), and read Yuri Monogatari vol. 5 this morning (it's refreshing to have a book of Yuri oneshots vs one of Yaoi oneshots :3 ).

brought some more manga to read for later, probably gonna read Gakuen Heaven. LET THE YAOI PUNS COMMENCE~

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Did_You_Eat_Yesterday%3F), Sankarea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sankarea:_Undying_Love), and WataMote (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WataMote), and Manga Dogs (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-02-19/kodansha-comics-announces-ema-toyama-manga-dogs). got the titles of a shitload more so when i have some spare cash i may go on an Amazon buying spree. -w-

Title: Re: What Manga are you reading?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on October 22, 2014, 01:42:15 pm
yeahhhh....the opening is creepy as shit. but after you get past the pedodad part it seems pretty cute.

(fucking FF ate my post)

honestly, WataMote was a bit of a letdown. maybe it's just because it was the first volume, but it's as slice of lifey as you can get. there's no ongoing plot, no drive to change, no nothing, just awkward kid being awkward. the main character is adorkable and i can somewhat relate to her, but she's also kind of a dumbass and really full of herself. i'm still interested enough to check it out, so i think i may watch the anime and see if it's proof positive that the second volume is where shit starts to happen. :\


of the books i read, though, bells, i think you'd be over the moon for What Did You Eat Yesterday? . it's adorable, real, and super-sweet without being saturated. the realistic art style is also quite atypical for manga making it even more its own kind of thing. and despite being Shonen-ai there's no thick layers of it. it is to Yaoi what Aoi Hana is to yuri, only not depressing and also super-tasty-looking.

you're likely gonna love it. Sanji is the best character by far, both me and Steve will back up that claim.


on an unrelated note, went to Savers the other day in search of cosplay supplies and found 3 volumes of Kimi ni Todoke i didn't already have in brand new condition (some still had the borders stickers, so cute ;v; )! even got them for 99 cents a piece, such a steal! >:3

huh, didn't realize this topic was so dead. got a lot more manga since i last posted, basically all courtesy of savers (including the entire run of Godchild). got a few people on the wire that may eventually be selling me more in bulk, just waiting and seeing atm.

on an unrelated note, i was going through Top(ic)less yesterday and i saw a post about the movie Blue is the Warmest Colour. we were discussing how any and all depiction of gays, female sexuality, or (*gasp*) GAY FEMALE SEXUALITY got an adults-only rating.

how does this relate to this thread? i was browsing the Yuricon/ALC Store online and found this. seems BitWC was a manga. (dunno if you knew, i didn't know).
