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.

Despite the trashy premise it's actually pretty heartwarming and interesting. The relationship triangles/squares/whatever that are forming really make me want to know how everything will turn out. I like the art too.

I think the funny thing is that since we see the series from Ponko's point of view, she's clearly conscious. It starts begging the question of how ethical it is for people to 'decommission' her considering she passes the Turing test and also is a conscious being.

Reminds me of that one doujin series that ends with 'the happiest robot in the world' or something.

Has anyone been reading pic related? It's about an immortal being and their lives throughout a number of different eras. It's by the author of Koe no Katachi and has the same pacing issues at time, but on the whole it's been a interesting as a somewhat more serious take on the Isekai genre.

I started reading a manga called Candy and Cigarettes. It's about an old man working with a loli assassin. I like Gunslinger Girl very much so it seems up my ally. It's nowhere near as serious so far, and I'd go so far as to say it's intentionally campy, what with the comically evil bad guys and the vaguely defined "secret organization" he just stumbles into working for. However it's fun enough just for the spectacle of things. I do enjoy the scenes of the little girls "normal" life as compared to her life as an assassin, and the interaction between her and the old man is pretty amusing.

Finished Chio's School Road the other day, some of the later parts felt kinda rough but all in all I enjoyed it.

I thought he was great in Riding Bean in a silly sort of way, but I like the really stupid things like his bulletproof headband. I gotta admit to liking Rally better though. I think I've read that Sonoda wanted Bean to be the focus of his series at first but ended up with the girls as main characters instead.

>>652
I guess my gripe is that when most people get shot in the series, they tend to not get back up and are, at the very least, hurt enough to not really put up a fight. Rally's shooting and stuff isn't exactly realistic, but it's not super unbelievable and she still gets trumped by some of the villains. Bean just doesn't. It would be neat to see him pull his stuff out every so often, but even when his plot armor "breaks" he doesn't go down.

>I've never read Burst, or the original Gunsmith Cats for that matter, but I love the OVAs

Then you should read the first series! If you can find it, read the official revised edition in english. The original version was completely mirrored (for left to right flow) and censored to appeal to the American market better. It has some really nice arcs and the art is fantastic. The OVAs are kind of spread out throughout the manga.

Started reading Holyland yesterday, same author as the one who writes Suicide Island. The art is nothing to write home about but I enjoy his less shounen take on street fighting. It's a slightly more grounded version of e.g. Kengan Asura so if you liked that you might give it a try.

That's definitely a fair gripe. Bean is pretty superhuman, and in a world where most people aren't (at least to that degree) it does feel odd.

Takotsuboya has a few doujin series like that. He's got an amazing way of turning existing series into something serious and gritty, with a little bit of smut sprinkled on top. Very good storytelling.

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.

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.
