Talk about what manga you've been reading!

I've been reading an older manga called Yume Tsukai by Ueshiba Riichi. It's about magical shrine maidens with weird powers solving paranormal mysteries and stuff. Fairly standard concept but what makes it good in my opinion is just how crazy and bizarre the stories get, as well as some really fantastic art and a nostalgic sort of comedy. It's sometimes goofy, sometimes quite emotional, and other times borders on Junji Ito-esque horror scenarios. I really like the creepy body horror stuff, and the comedy between the weirdo cast is fun. I especially like the over the top lolicon character.

I've been reading Otome no Teikoku, a really cute yuri manga. I initially started reading because it was hot yuri ecchi, but now I feel ashamed because it's actually just really cute and I'm now reading it for the relationships. The ecchi has also toned down quite a bit from when it started. If you're a fan of yuri, ecchi, romance, or all three, then this manga would probably be really enjoyable for you.


I love it when you can tell from the covers what a manga is all about and this definitely looks like seriously hot yuri ecchi. I'll give this a try.


I tried reading this a while ago but I couldn't deal with the whiplash from it switching between that porno-looking style with fat shaded lips and the cutesy flat and simple style every panel.

Was going to listen to a Current 93 album but due to life's pathways ended up reading Dragon Head instead. Very very thrilling, I like how there's a presence of the supernatural, but it's not really there. The fact that it seems like a SHTF fantasy that during peak-covid panic I could've seen as a foreseeable future also adds an extra. I'm just in the 4th volume but I'd definitely rec this just for the first two alone.

I've read this manga, it's actually one of my favorites ever and got me really invested in their cute relationships and everyday troubles.

I've already completed them but I really recommend Blaster Knuckle for a good laugh, Hell Baby for some horror and Shinya Shokudo for the most heartwarming story where you wish you could meet the characters.


Does anyone know the name of the manga where the main character is a girl working in a tulou. I think she worked as a food taster for some emperor or something.


There's a oneshot straight-up called Life in the Tulou but that's not about food tasting or emperors. I think you might be mixing it up with Kusuriya no Hitorigoto.


Yeah, I was looking for Kusuriya no Hitorigoto. Thank you.


It's an incredibly great manga. Wonder why you thought of a tulou though instead of the herbalist thing. Dunno how you even came across the word tulou.


File: 1604466177142.png (44.68 KB, 309x228, maoma-_o_-.png)

I think I read that oneshot and started Kusuriya on the same day, a while ago. Kusuriya's lovely, few manga can have me longing to be a eunuch in the next life. Also Mao's ribbon looks like knife ears in some panels. It's really fucking cute.


Incidentally a new chapter was just released and an excellent one too.


Oh well maybe that would do it
I thought the oneshot was mostly interesting for its setting, which I suppose was probably what it was going for anyway so it's not a bad thing.
With that said, why long to be a eunuch? I can't remember any cool eunuches.


being close to mao > genitals

The single highest rated manga on mangadex and it's actually pretty good

Thank you for your enthusiasm comrade

Varys was cool


Varys was a loser, dunno what you're on about. His entire plan revolved around bringing some crazy dragon slut back just so she could burn everything down apparently

Reading shortcuts. It's 1-2 page long unrelated gag comics, with 1-2 running characters every so often. Most of the jokes are low brow, but pretty funny. It can get somewhat confusing at points because some of the jokes depend on you knowing whats it's parodying, mostly you need to know about kogals and the culture that lead to them.

Reading cutie mutie. The main gist of it is that its one of those "Oh it looks cute, but is actually really dark" manga, does that have a name?, and the actual plot is people getting powers from sexual trauma. The whole shtick is so/so. The story has no grey areas so the overwhelming cuteness and edginess just whiplash back and forth creating an almost comedic tone.I think this might be the books first few chapters growing pains. The implied theme, 'Why do I have to suffer for the sake of others?', seems like it could be explored interesting in the kids backstories, child abused to have powers, exploited idol, honors student. If you don't like how this sounds just drop the manga because the scanlators didn't even finish it.


Pseudo-Harem is over. Last arc seemed a bit out of nowhere but the ending was nice and fluffy, if weirdly open-ended.


Disappointing as I quite liked Bokura no Hentai.


I tried reading this, couldn't get into it. The whole abuse secret society/scientist thing seemed gross to me instead of truly introspective or symbolic. It comes off as gratuitous and that's not a great thing when the subject matter is young girls navigating their abuse. It's not even particularly unique or intriguing. Maybe I just misunderstood what the author was going for, but… yeah.


Plot's kicking up and as always the author's really good at making fucking horrors out of nothing

Kaguya's really moved along after I took a break from it
I can't believe he actually did it, first Tokyo Ghoul and now Kaguya.


Admittedly I haven't read Kaguya, but that's surprising to see

I'm reading Melancholia, which is by Douman Seiman, who is the author of some of my favorite manga. It's a collection of short stories like Nickelodeon and it's great as expected. I'm particularly happy at the little references to Voynich Hotel so far, and I'm curious to see where all the "to be continued" stories go. I have a feeling they're going to interconnect.


It is a pretty good manga, specially now that it's fully translated. It had some pauses in translation and finished after years of no update so i lost a lot of information in the end.
Anyway i said that to tell you to read it continuously for the best experience.


>It had some pauses in translation and finished after years of no update so i lost a lot of information in the end
Ah yeah, the same thing happened to me with Oddman 11. I'll probably finish this one today or tomorrow so no worries there.

I got a bad vibe from this work from the very beginning and I knew for sure it was irredeemable trash when I heard about the chapter where they watch porn. This seals it: this author wants a netflix adaptation more than an anime.


Do you care to actually name your objections? It's a rom-com about teenagers. Makes sense to me that they'd fuck, because that's what happens when teenagers actually get together.


Binged Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai. Seriously one of the best manga I've ever read. Really funny stuff, it's hard not to get attached to the characters.

Miko suffering soon… These three make such a good group. Didn't really care about Julia much before, but the last few chapters have made me appreciate her.


File: 1615646519990.png (1.2 MB, 975x1400, ClipboardImage.png)

Julia is mostly funny because of how out of the loop she is, but I like her significantly less than Mieruko. Then again that's probably because Mieruko looks like this.

Having finally finished Oh! My Goddess I've been catching up on and finishing the big backlog of half read stuff.

I'm not sure where To You the Immortal is going but I can tell its going to end in some kind of tragedy.
Slow Motion wo Mou Ichido was great if you like Showa-era music, and the way they draw Yakushimaru really hits different.

Thanks for this one sushi roll, I checked out Voynich Hotel at the weekend and now reading Melancholia. Voynich Hotel hit a spot and now my heads gonna be in the clouds swimming with an ancient witch maid hotel all week.

I'm very happy to hear that. Getting people into my favorite mangaka is a good feeling.


Mieruko-chan anime announced

Mangadex hacked and will be down for the next fortnight or so (estimated). It's batoto all over again.


Nice, but will the anime do the monsters justice?


I really hope it comes back in the same capacity as before
It's all so tiresome…


I just don't know why people do this
Clearly they're not actually looking for money so…?


I've been told I'm silly and old fashioned for tracking down and downloading the release from the scanlators. People keep pouring all their eggs in the same basket, and it always fails after a while. With an RSS reader I can simply subscribe to whichever scanlator that's currently releasing the manga that I wish to read (or hoard).


This is super smart, I'm kicking myself for not doing this already now. Is there an easy way to find scanlators and where they upload their stuff? I feel like I'm missing something, because I always struggle with this.


Well it's not like I don't do that, but it's annoying because sometimes I really don't feel like downloading 5000 images for one manga. Sure it's easily sorted, but that doesn't make it less cumbersome - especially if I'm only reading it once. Once I have it downloaded I don't feel like deleting it, but then again the hell am I supposed to do with it otherwise?


mangaupdates sometimes have links to the scanlators websites. If they don't, you can often find it by searching their names on google.


Thank you! mangaupdates seems like it's exactly what I was looking for



Note that on the scanlation pages in mangaupdates there's no link to their websites, only social media.
For the links you have to search their names in the search bar and then, on the results, next to their names will be their websites.

There's also this list:

Are you saying it's cumbersome to download the manga or that it's annoying to organize them?
If it's the former there are multiple ways to make it easier like Tachiyomi, Free Manga Downloader (FMD) (the fmd-project-team fork), HDoujin Downloader, mangadex-dl (there's multiple forks), gallery-dl, hakuneko and manga-py


It's just that I'm for some reason just psychologically opposed to having something on my hard drive that I'm unlikely to use much
I dunno man it's probably just the fact that manga is 4000 separate pictures while an anime of the same length is feasibly 40


Mangadex update, they need 2-3 more weeks
It's never going to come up again


Please don't store manga as image files. Zip them up, change the extension to .cbz, then use a reader. Boom, your 5,000 image folder is now 20 files. I'm honestly astonished that stuff like Tachiyomi doesn't do this automatically for each chapter.
If you are on Windows, CDisplayEX has a thumbnailer so you can see the covers in explorer. I prefer using Yacreader because it doesn't need to load the whole cbz to let you read (I keep everything on a NAS), but I keep CDisplayEX around for the thumbnails.
