Discuss manga series you are following, whine about dead scanslations and all those stuff
/a/ manga poll-
Anyone follows Sket Dance? I think I do it just for completation sake but holy shit, the romance subplot went full retard with the whole "let's just pretend is nothing" chapter
I wish I could, I love Hime tho
Nah, it suffers from that heavy Japanese humor.
Also, RIP boxing manga with a waifu who got fat and actually stays fat.
I remember someone commenting that everyone is interested in 'serious' boxing after Ippo and Joe. I liked how, he always seemed to bail out before competing.
And still we see Shingeki thread #3213.
I really miss Kingdom threads, the war arc was beyond glorious but there has been barely any discussion since then. It seems like something big is boiling with the creation of Ai so I hope to see new threads in a couple of months.
>And still we see Shingeki thread #3213
There's a report button for that. I just don't want manga threads, of all things, to be ruined by people who don't understand why they shouldn't be forced 24/7.
I caught up with the translation for 7Seeds, I was behind a decent number of chapters but read them all last night. I'm really glad it looks like the mangaka is going to give more development to some of the background characters that aren't in the main groups.
in case you didn't know, this isn't a single manga series but entire subtext of a board shoved into a thread because individual threads other than more popular manga cannot possibly survive.
You are forgetting why general threads were frowned upon on first place and are blinding just hating the fact there exists a discussion thread! There are shittons of different manga titles out there that would otherwise never survive on /a/ board.
>New chapters never
I just want to see if he is actually nice or just pretending
I have a hard on for historical(and Fiction/Historical) manga.
Suggest me more historical manga. I'm currently reading Date Masumune
I'm interested in doing a rescan of Ravages using the deluxe reprints that were released (seems to have some redraws, uncensored, maybe some other bonus material), but YesAsiaJews is the only reliable place I can find that sells it (at a markup).
I put it off for a long time, I tried to read it after finishing Basara and couldn't get into it because the main characters were so awkward. But I guess it's supposed to be like that because over the course of the series they all change a lot. None of it is forced either, it's a matter of them realizing how they need to adapt to the new world and bonding with each people they'd never interact with otherwise. It's a good series if you really want to root for the characters and hope they accomplish what they need to do.
No, it's the thread where depressive people mope.
Reading whistle!, I'm almost on chapter 50 and it's pretty bad so far.
No it's the one where mature people reading fuzzy garbage post about their childlike infatuation with drawings
Just finished Superior last night, and tonight I'm starting the sequel.
I gotta say, the cover arts remain as one of the most beautiful things I've seen in manga.
being perfectly honest, i can agree that the story is pretty meh, id say a 5.5/10 at most.
Still, I'm interested enough to see it through to the end, and that way I can enjoy more nice art, and some of these faces
Inherit the stars
almost a year since last update
Where the fuck are the seitokai translations Foolz? There's like 100 more chapters to do.
I've been reading Silver Spoon... I like it a lot. Not as good as Moyashimon, though. I don't think anything will fill the agricultural-shaped inside of me quite as well as Moyashimon.
Im surprised no one else picked it up
Is there any other manga manga about maids? It doesn't have to be legitimate maid, any maid will do.
And I've read Emma by the way.
On the other note, I'm still searching for manga that have RPG theme like Re:Monster and Toaru Ossan no VRMMO Katsudouki. I know a few others, but It's kinda hard to find one that have diary-like story telling like those two.
He's popular on /a/, but I don't see much discussion of him else. Obviously he does well enough domestically to have a couple long running series, but I just think he should be really popular. He's a great writer.
I'm just discovered SOL manga like Hinamatsuri and Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru. I like it so much, it give me the comfy feeling.
>tfw these manga scanlation is dead.
Why do I have such a boner for this kind of explanation as to why aliens look like humans
>Volume 4 of Ultra Heaven will not be released in your lifetime
zindyr has just been busy or something, and Elkin, the other TL who likes Yukinobu stuff, has also been a bit busy. Maybe there'll be some more Yukinobu stuff in the future when they are more free. There are a couple more of his books we have.
Does anyone read so much manga that they're actually running out of things to read? In terms of translated stuff.
I read what I believe is a fairly large amount, considering. But I'm still surprised at how much translated stuff is out there.
Of course lots of it is generic trash.
Which I enjoy reading.

Well I was wondering when. Obviously unless you're in to every genre you'll run out far before 2k, not even counting shit series or series you just don't enjoy.
I like pretty much every genre except mecha(in manga form it just isn't my thing) so I'm pretty much good for awhile I guess.
I've tried most genres actually. I mean I'm not about to go search yaoi manga.
When I'm searching this is pretty much what I look for.
Unless I'm in the mood for a specific genre.
I'm not running out by any means. It just scares me it may happen in the future.
I feel ya. I have around 500 series I am tracking simply because I just pile on more as I wait for my more favorable series to update.
Sometimes I feel like I have nothing to read but if you look around, theres some gems you missed here and there. Finding those gems are great.
Currently reading Shut Hell, Volume 10 went off the fucking rails, in a good way, i should really get a suscritpion to Big Comics.
Also, i finished reading Peridot yesterday, it was pretty okay, if a bit short, the weird thing is, it ended as soon as it looked like a plot was forming.
>Sometimes I feel like I have nothing to read but if you look around, theres some gems you missed here and there. Finding those gems are great.
That's pretty much how I feel. "Oh I have nothing to read" then I'll look around a little, add 5 things to my backlog, and at least 1-2 of them I end up really enjoying. 1-2 more I'll end up liking enough to finish. Then I usually drop 1.
>How much pain you inflict upon yourself determines how much money you get
>Skin from your own body is considered luxury to demon's in hell
I love this shit. Just finished it last night, and really liked it. Wasn't expecting much from it either but I loved the ending.
I was thinking in reading the manga adaptation of Umineko, I already have read the novel and was wondering for quite a while if it is good, any opinions?
Recently finished reading the original Getter Manga and Shin Getter.
I'll probably wit a bit before I continue with Saga and Arc.
Making my way through Jojo, currently finishing Part 5.
To be honest I don't like it nearly as much as Part 4, the characters aren't nearly as interesting and the pacing is too fight-of-the-week. Cool stand ideas though, it's kind of like Stardust Crusaders done better.
The scans don't help much.
I really wish there was some /ss/ stuff out there that wasn't dead, I miss Puppy Lovers so much and this one is not exactly high quality.
>9 hours ago
>mfw I did nothing but browsing 4chan for the last 9 hours
Anyway, I'm gonna look it up. Thanks.
Just finished Rookies the other day, last game was kinda annoying but pretty good shit overall, also Shinjo is one cool ass motherfucker, shouldda been more in the spotlight.
Also, Roku Blues update never.
I'm reading this and simply wish to have more female characters like Gally/Alita
Fucking finally. Who am I kidding though, we all know that she's still going to lose.
Not sure if I signed for this. I hope the healing will come with the oppai loli.
Im reading sakamoto.
Its so fucking good
What are some good revenge manga or manga with moments when charcters get some good revenge.
What I've read that comes to mind
Vinland saga up until mc goes VikingJesus
Gantz with all that bullying
Freesia kind of.
I did it for you faggots, because I enjoyed that story so much that I wanted to share it immediately after I've come to know there were raws for World Apartment Horror.
I always forget that there's still the rest to translate. What story would you prefer to read next?
I don't watch anime that often anymore but I really want to start Kaiji and maybe read some of Fukumoto's other stuff.
It's seems /a/ has came to a general consensus and enjoys his work.
I also have this one by Otomo
but I haven't even read it yet and this one by Kon
which is great but contains 3 stories that already are in World Apartment Horror.
Actually I have all the 5 Kon manga but the others are already translated or have an English edition.
Fuck, just got caught up on Silver Spoon. Fuck Arakawa for adding in a timeskip. Sudden timeskips are the worst.
Anyone besides myself enjoying 7 Seeds? I know there must be some anons here who've read it. If not I recommend it if you enjoy stuff like Fallout. The artwork can be a bit jarring but the story is gripping enough to keep you entertained.
It's worse when western comics do it never mind when it happens in my beloved manga.
Completely translated, needs an editor.
Is that Real? I've always heard that it's Inoue's best.
I've only read 6 chapters. It's great so far, I'll definitely read it but for now I want to read other stuff.
Also I love the art a lot, it's reminds me of a twisted fairy tale on acid.
Otoyomegatari is constantly blowing me away.
Everything is so beautiful.
Homunculus is a great read but I haven't read Ichi the Killer yet. I'll probably read it soon though once I am done with Franken Fran on Halloween.
I thought I'd discovered a hidden gem but it's nice to see it's well liked around here. I think Madhouse would be perfect for an anime adaption. I haven't read past after Hana got separated from everyone since I was waiting for new chapters to build up. What arc is it at now?
I was thinking of Miyuki or Nine for my first Adachi series but I can't decide between those other choices are of course welcome.
I wonder what will get announced. What are the biggest manga that still have to be published? Yotsuba is one, Kiseiju was announced not too long ago.
>I was thinking of Miyuki or Nine for my first Adachi series
You watched Blue Blazes, haven't you?
I'm putting off reading the 3rd volume just so I don't have to suffer waiting for more.
Battle Royale was definitely the roughest but it was also shit. Litchi Hikari Club and Dorohedoro also but they're a fun kind of brutal. I also started reading Apocalypse Zero and that one has some graphic stuff but the art is very amateur, it's amazing how much better Shigurui and Exoskull Zero look in comparison.
I just got pic related, so I'm going to have fun reading them for a little while.
Yeah I've read it along with a decent amount of anons. The art is is alright at best but mostly horrible (those fucking hands). I absolutely loved the academy arc and the puppeteer arc. Definitely some of my favorite story telling in manga.
>What arc is it at now?
A lot of characters are on or heading to a single island that had a group of scientists living their in the past, and iirc it also had the town the twin girls were from. There's also a ton of insects on it though. Some of the characters are lost in underground caverns but a few were just introduced to each other, like Ran meeting Botan and Chimaki for the first time.
That manga on the right in the last row. Shit was confusing my dick the whole time. There was no rape! None at all! I felt like I've been tricked, that's not how his other manga go.
It'd make a good movie or tv series if any studio stepped up to try it. When I saw the trailer for Snowpiercer for the first time it immediately reminded me of the underground arc and how well something like that could transition to film/live-action.
I couldn't get into it, the art was decent but the characters themselves just didn't do it for me. I got up around to when Mitsuko's background was revealed and stopped reading.
I think chapter 22 should be out in November.
>that's not how his other manga go
Use the archive to learn where to download manga from. I won't say more than this.
I disliked the art but really liked the building of the story and the characterization.
In that case I have no clue. Still, it's nice that more people are getting to read it. It's such a fun series.
Who do you think is best fish?
It start out just like the one where little girl is being late for school and tries to get to it via shortcut too.
Reading Cromartie and laughing my ass off. Also reading Blade of the Immortal (shit english title), and holy fuck it's great.
Caught up with the Again! scans (Hiro-kun a shit) and Magi (boring as hell).
There's a number of H artists/authors that have done successful non-H stuff.
Tosh and Orimoto Mimana come to mind.
And Cuvie did pic related, which is very cute and well researched to boot.
I just didn't knew he's putting off non-ero manga. Saw it in new releases on EBJ, and it took me a minute to realize who drew this and that there's no fucking because it was in seinen section.
Boy is this good, could read this shit forever. Can only wish I was a millionaire so I could fund a 10/10 anime adaptation out of it.
I love FKMT and manga with intelligent characters. I've recently finished One Outs and Liar Game; where do I go from here? Any suggestions? I just love the tension and badassery of these characters and the situations that they get themselves into.
>A story about a girl who chases her dream of being a ballerina. Very cute. Informative too, as the author had a ballet expert and a ballet dancer advising them
>2 Volumes (Ongoing)
Someone translate it already.
I started reading it this summer and quickly went through all the chapters.
It's great and I love stories with big cast of characters that are all important to the story so I've really been enjoying it.
It can be a little frustrating, with them being all scattered but so close to each others. I think it'll pick up steam when they start to meet up and we learn more about everything that happened on the islands.
> coming from someone who only watches anime.
> someone who only watches anime.
> only watches anime.
> only anime.
Instead of calling you a faggot I'll just advice you to start reading manga, can guarantee you that in about 3 months you'll begin to get tired of anime.
More FKMT stuff? Dude has a shit ton of manga out and even if they're not 100% about strategy and shit they involve it at some point in the story.
Also, not manga but some anon yesterday suggested a korean reality TV show called the Genius and its basically Kaiji but in reality tv form and with 12 protagonists instead of 1. I kid you not, the very first episode has the exact same rock,paper,scissors game that was in Kaiji. Give it a try.
I haven't read Liar Game because I'm waiting for it to finish and I know its way more popular than One Outs because people stay away from anything sports related but for people that've read both, which do you think is better? One Outs was so fucking good can't wait to read Liar Game if people consider it better.
It looks like the group that released the digital rips for the first volume need to recruit more people. They were using CMX's English translation so maybe they need more editors/typesetters for it or something.
I might squeeze in one more order before the new year.
I just read a couple volumes of Wataru Watanabe's (the Yowamushi Pedal guy) version of Train Man. It's pretty good and some of the characters remind me of /a/ a lot.
Probably around 50. I sell volumes of manga I don't feel like continuing or keeping so my collection doesn't get outgrow my bookcases too much. Really wish I had the room to buy whatever I want to try though. According to MAL I reached 1k volumes of manga read but it still feels like I've read hardly anything.
I don't know. Something around 50, I think. But it could very well be near 100.
Gimme the Italian text and I'll translate it. I only have volume 9 and 10.
I feel you, I'm >>116062990, there are so much more manga I want to read.
I don't remember how much I read in English, so I'm not counting that. I'm only counting what I've read so far in the few months I've been studying japanese.
Caught up with and following:
I tried to find it in case someone could translate it from Italian, but couldn't find any scans of original manga. I guess in reality you can find them anywhere in Italy, so no one bothered to scan it.
Finished second to last nook of Blade of the Immortal. I know how the whole thign ends, but considering that one of the themes is that 'Revenge is Pointless' would it be more appropriate if
Anostu kills Rin? Instead of letting her stab him, he disarms her and insta kills her before getting finished off my Manji. I think this would drive home the point that revenge is destructive and pointless. Why Anostu did set his men loose to rape Rin's mother, she and Manji finished off the ones who actually did it and thus could have turned away
Still waitin' on that chapter Togashi.
No seriously, just one. I'll even take the doodles just give me something
I found these on Ebay
The fact that we get releases doesn't mean they'll be always available. That's why we have Cons, to find old oop manga, unfortunately we too have been infected with the cosplay virus. Actually tomorrow starts the Lucca Con, seems like it's the third most popular comic fair in the world after the Comiket and Angouleme ones.
Why they are so thin? Were they released on chapter basis?
>Are there any shounen delinquent manga that AREN'T comedies?
Mangaupdates says yes, at least for a few.
I suppose Joe counts.
I don't think so, I think it's just the quality of the paper.
One publisher sometimes uses an edition that splits volumes in two but this is not the case, it's a different publisher.
I think few people were actually following the themes and it's perhaps a more satisfying ending in general. Although, everyone still seems pissed that 'everything moves on' anyways.
I'm not going to spoonfeed retards, sorry.
>4200 manga in the "autouploaded" folder
Whoever is doing that bot, I assume you're autoripping from Batoto, thus negating the need for the scanlator to upload themselves. Can you correct it so that it sorts into the correct manga folder?
I think Crows comes close to it, its way more serious than it is funny, it has very few comedic moments. Just my opinion but I wouldn't even advise them, or at least I ended Crows with a bittersweet taste exactly because of that, seeing a bunch of 15 years old in overly dramatic situations and being all serious and shit its just too stupid and annoying, just doesn't feel realistic. Would love to read one that can be serious without being too ridiculous tho, can imagine might be difficult to achieve tho.
I can't find any raws, but you can rip the first 13 pages or so from EBJ. If someone decides to pick it up, someone can probably scan it.
>What's the record for longest dead series?
You mean before another scanlator came along and picked it up or rather, didn't?
It's easily several thousand days. Some probably border a decade. There's probably some that go even further, but that kind of stuff has been lost.
Other than Ito what is some good horror for halloween?
If Junji Ito is the only horror author that you know, you really need to expand your horizons. Go browse the horror tag on MU. Kazuo is a good place to start. I hope someone dumps horror manga on Halloween.
>Also, am I the only person on the board following 6000? Shit's 2spooky but so slow. I honestly can't reccomend it till it's done. >>
Ooh, looks interesting. I'll check it out.
Are there manga awards? I imagine there are but never see them being mentioned or being that much of a big deal, what would be the most prestigious award a manga could get?
Yeah thats why I said that I imagined so, too bad you don't know what are the most notorious or popular ones so you could've told me and we could've continued this conversation, instead of getting jumpy over something so insignificant. Also, I don't use MU to look for stuff to read, at least not yet.
Yeah I can imagine a bunch of arguably shitty manga getting awards and shit and I doubt I'd trust them but still kinda curious about them.
>too bad you don't know what are the most notorious or popular ones so you could've told me and we could've continued this conversation, instead of getting jumpy over something so insignificant
Sounds more like you're just using that as an excuse for your inability to use google.
There's no conversation to continue, really. You asked a stupid question.
Anyway, on the subject of awards, here are this year's Kodansha awards. Anyone reading anything from this list?
A lot of them just aren't translated.
>Koe no Katachi
>Taiyou no ie
Taiyou no ie is probably the only one I really enjoy, but even then, I still wouldn't put it that high.
Sanzoku Diary looks interesting. Too bad no one ever does many things like it.
I grabbed the raws for Sanzoku a while ago, because I liked the cover and the description. I knew nothing about it, so seeing it get nominated for an award also has me interested.
Anyone who likes Prison School should check out Me and the Devil Blues by the same author. It's completely different subject matter but shares some of the same intensity and has amazing artwork.
I'm surprised that no one has picked up his debut work, Agonashi Gen to Ore Monogatari. Almost as surprised as I am over how his art turned from this into what it is now. I guess that speed scanners only want to do what's new and popular, just like fansubbers.
Ya'll don't get the idea of wanting to have a discussion, its a manga thread after all, is it so crazy I would like to ask these type of shit here? Its not all about the information I can find, its about discussing it with ya'll.
True, that's definitely a strong deterrent. The chapters are only 8 pages each though, so it could make for a good open project like what I think is/was being done with Ika Musume.
Have any of you here ever sent a message to an author/artist you enjoyed?
Did you get a reply?
It's the award that I care the least about, but I usually pick up a new manga when they announce stuff.
I've done that many times, and most have replied. Pixiv+Twitter with the occasional email.
Homunculus because of how creepy it felt, and Ichi the killer with all the violence in it.
I will never forget that chapter where a prostitute's tit got punched till it was bruised and purple. ew.
Just 5 so far this year, the only time I buy manga is when I read a manga that has a legal translation but has no scanlation left to get. Plus it's hard to find space like you said, I already have 4 boxes of manga and comics since I started collecting 2 years ago.
the scans for toradora have been stuck at 49 forever. I actually really enjoyed it so I keep praying somebody will pick it up... At this point I might just go skim through the light novel for qt Taiga moments.
>That manga you would buy every volume of if it had a english translation.
What's her name, /a/?
-Future-Retro Hero Story
I already know how.
I actually wouldn't mind more of Washizu spinoff being translated than Akagi.
Reading Akira for the first time ever here, been saving this one for a long time.
It's great, Kaneda is by far the best thing in it. I'm on volume 3 though, so haven't finished it yet.
I think Otomo is way better as a mangaka.
He had some heavyweight knowledge on making comics in general. As in, many manga/comic artists study his paneling, for example, because he's fucking godly at it.
Shame (?) he decided to focus solely on animation.
It's basically a hunting/living off the land manga. Each chapter focuses on one of the game he hunts. You would have to find someone that is more interested in those things to translate. It's not bad, but it's very outdoors-man, so that is a hurdle to finding someone who would like it enough to TL.
Only if you tell me which one this is from.
Hah, so it wasn't just strictly host problems:
>Recent Outage Due to DMCA Request
>This news post is a bit late, but that's because we were trying to investigate and obtain responses from all the parties involved.
>Our recent downtime last week was a result of two DMCA requests. It was from an intermediary on behalf of two different companies. Unfortunately, our host did not notify us and instead disabled our IP address immediately. The most recent requests were due to displaying copyrighted cover art. As some of you have noticed, we have removed the images from some respective series pages (hopefully temporarily). We are currently in the process of looking for another host. It is unacceptable to cause severe downtime without forwarding the requests to us and allowing us to respond. It is likewise poor form by the intermediary to use such tactics without attempting to contact us directly.
>Thank you, MU Staff
Attacking cover art? Seems to be blatantly attacking fair use.
And to think, some faggots were claiming that we shouldn't have to panic about MU going down. DMCA over cover art? Fucking pathetic. They're chipping away at MU with whatever they can get away with to make it further DMCAs easier. Someone really should make a replacement.
What the fuck happened to that site that should have replaced MT? Is the project dead?
The ftp is good and all but a site would be better. And why didn't those faggots release the torrent with all the MT manga already?
>site would be better
Agreed, Woxxy is involved in a replacement but that's probably vaporware
Who the fuck knows, they probably gave up because they think the FTP will last forever (MT all over again someday). FTP admin can't make torrents, either, because his server isn't large enough and bandwidth would probably be expensive.
The reason MU 'works' is because its centralized though. The one thing it has to do is inter-op with it.
Absolutely no idea. I haven't tried visiting #MTarchival in a while, so you could always try asking. The FTP is just as liable to be removed and updates aren't really coming from users, let alone the people working on them.
Didn't the owner delete all the hentai? Whe need a fucking site already.
Holy shit, you can't trust neckbeards. I don't pretend to get everything for free but at least be fucking honest and tell us what's going on. Faggots.
>That feel when one of your favorite mangas gets picked up again
>And then gets dropped after 3 chapters
Man, I have no idea why nobody likes Soil, it's one of the best manga I've ever read.
>why nobody likes Soil
That's a pretty bullshit statement. There's some people who really love it around here. Saw it about a few years ago, still been people begging for translations since.
will there ever be an official English release of nichijou?
Jiro Taniguchi will publish a new manga, Les Gardiens du Louvre. Actually I think it's already been published on magazine in Japan. I couldn't find an a link in English, if you want it in French or Italian just ask, there are more pictures and info.
Ever since I fixed my old 7 inch tablet I've been reading non stop.
Is there some kind of OCR application for android? Kind of like KanjiTomo?
Problem is that it's only sold in Luis Vuitton boutiques. Maybe only in the Venetian one (although I don't think so).
It doesn't even cost so much, should be around 40, 45 euro.
I really fucking want this. All the author's works
(H)really melt my heart.
>check Wet Moon
Disgusting, makes me want to puke.
I saw that too when I searched for scans.
Something made by a fat lesbian or something, but don't worry, Kaneko's one is great.
It's like a David Lynch movie, but in manga.
A noir with some fantastic elements etc. Difficult to say just a few things about it, I hope it'll get an english release or even scans for you.
The setting, the use of the shadows and lights and of the angles immediately gave away that it's a noir. Eh, I should have studied French in high school, instead of Latin and Greek.
Why is this not scanlated?
Pirates and tits from the guy of Dragon Head.
lack of jp raws, probably? i think people are a little more interested in tokyo kaido and chisakobee. Those series would also be a smaller commitment (tho chisako is ongoing still)
Doesn't seem like those are getting scanlated either. That manga is a fucking ecchi adventure with pirates and treasure hunting, what's not to like? We need those damn raws.
Chisakobee isn't even written by Mochizuki.
Yes... it's not written by him because it's a modern adaptation of an older novel.
Ed from Vertical said that Tokyo Kaido was getting worked on, but they haven't officially announced anything, so I don't know what exactly he meant by working on it.
As for the plot summary you gave, it doesn't sound that interesting compared to some of his other stuff?
There was a time when it was discussed a bit here after it was posted in the one page threads. I tried to buy it after downloading a couple volumes but someone outbid me while I was at work.
>it doesn't sound that interesting compared to some of his other stuff
To me it's a lot more interesting.
If you like Dragon Head you should read Heart of Darkness and watch Apocalypse Now.
Not everyone is american.
>I don't know what exactly he meant by working on it
Probably referring to the fact that they were sucking the Japanese publisher for the license.
Damn, I love Dragon Head. I'm buying the new Italian edition.
Yes, obviously not everyone is American, but if there's an English publication, then normally people would buy that, and most groups would avoid it because it's licensed.
Vertical's parent company is Kodansha. There isn't really too much sucking needed if your parent company already has the license.
Oh, it doesn't work like that here, local publishers make deals with multiple Japanese publishers. There's loyalization (with both publishers and authors) but that's different.
Come on, how can you not like pirates, treasures and adventure?
Agreed. But his short collections are way more interesting to me and his sense of humour.
Roselia and GWR just released a number of chapters from some of those volumes: Sayonara Nippon, Boogie Woogie Waltz chapter, Good Weather chapter, Highway Star and apparently a rather rare uncollected one named Apple Paradise.
Before I read it I often heard how bad the ending was, those people were tripping, the ending is absolutely perfect.
Domu was fucking terrifying at times. I believe I have posted this image before, but it sums up that silent foreboding feeling.
I agree he was way better at manga than he is with directing movies. I wish he had continued because his compositions were always so good, and he could say a lot with images rather than words. Still, the animation and music in the Akira movie was top notch.
What SWOT accomplished in its short time, it's like the condensed desperation of a thousand series.
Personally, it's possibly Pure Trance. I also hate the shit out of MPD Psycho, but that's possibly irrational, the thing's a mess though. And it is fairly long.
Does anyone else read Yong Bi? It's something I've been enjoying for a long time, but gosh dang it are the release times so long. Used to be every 2 weeks or every month, I can't even remember anymore.
Just started Dorohedoro. Liking it a lot of far. The art is pretty, well...I like it but I doubt an art instructor would think much of it. It's got this raw quality though that makes up for everything.
Everyone being goofy goobers underneath their MURDERKILLDEATH masks helps too.
Gantz was basically impossible for me to read during the last arc. I dropped it for like a year before convincing myself to finish it. But it had some redeemable features, and despite the shit pile, it was entertaining with wrestling dinosaurs and statues with laser beams.
I just mean on a technical level. PERSONALLY, I love it. It's got this great feel that's totally unique.
It's just that thinking back on various art classes I've taken, Dorohedoro is the kind of thing that would've given a lot of my teachers heart attacks, and I don't mean because of the subject matter.
But then I also think early Part 1 JoJo looks great.
It's easy mode to mention yaoi, but jesus fucking christ this was so bad I could barely finish it out of fascination. Every cliche you could imagine was in here. Cool seme, sickly uke, protective older brother that's not actually related to the piece of shit uke, who unsurprisingly has loved the uke the whole time... Fuck yaoi. The few exemplary authors that exist do not make up for massive amounts of cliche, badly drawn shit and the insufferable fangirls.
