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 started reading this today https://mangadex.org/title/38628/if-my-wife-became-an-elementary-school-student

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.

Even though the jokes are dumb and obvious, it can still be pretty funny.


I just hope it ends with them getting to be together again against all odds, instead of the more likely ending of having the dad move on and get with the OL who is crushing on him.

Nope, turns out I'm just an idiot
Oh no. I didn't really expect this manga to get dark. Not sure how to feel about this.

I'm a big fan of Ueshiba Riichi's work after being introduced by Mysterious Girlfriend X. He's got a really unique style, and everything he writes has a weird fetishistic quality to it that's really interesting. Glad to hear you're enjoying it.

Really fun manga about a spy who has to fake having a family.


Holy cute, I like her.

I've been enjoying Ponkotsu Ponko. It's about a klutzy loli maid robot causing trouble for a tsundere old man in a tired old town.


I just finished catching up to this, it was very good.


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.


File: 1591872751398.png (155.09 KB, 1049x619, immortal dead.png)

I've been following it since the near-beginning. Despite the small pacing issues, the general atmosphere is pretty incredible. The expressions and dialogue really give you an acute understanding of each character's personality. The author has a gift when it comes to storytelling.


File: 1594315164760.jpg (224.59 KB, 728x1109, black clover chapter 1 44.jpg)

I decided to check out black clover on a whim and just finished reading chapter 1. It's sloppily edited from chinese raws, some english is a little awkward but it moved me.


I heard there's an anime so I'm definitely checking it out, then jump to the manga. It looks really damn promising.

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.

How do you mean?

Seems normal to me.


I'm a volume into Gunsmith Cats Burst. So far it's been a let down compared to the original series, but not horrible. I just don't enjoy Bean's character and his constant ass pulls and plot armor.

Not him, but her hand has movement lines on, but the slide is fully forward. You never ride the slide home on an autoloading pistol, you can end up will all sorts of issues. >>641 pic related is fairly accurate for a Beretta 92D, but looks inaccurate for a 92FS.


Finished Chio's School Road the other day, some of the later parts felt kinda rough but all in all I enjoyed it.
Currently getting back into Fist of the North Star, enjoy the manga much more than the anime, much more to the point. Just got through the part where Raoh and Toki have their faceoff.
Planning to switch it up with GTO which I haven't read since I was a teen, and that was just some one-off chapters in one of those manga mix mags I subscribed to a while.

While we're nitpicking, there's this panel…
It's a dumb campy manga though, who cares. Girl also has no trigger discipline.
I've never read Burst, or the original Gunsmith Cats for that matter, but I love the OVAs
> I just don't enjoy Bean's character and his constant ass pulls and plot armor.
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.

I've been reading Dainana Joshikai Houkou, a weird manga about two girls in future Japan. It's a high school slice of life except with strange futuristic stuff and surreal events. I've been really enjoying it so far.


This is really cool and I like it, thanks for sharing.


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.
>Then you should read the first series!
Once I'm caught up to all the things I've picked up recently…

File: 1595797702902-1.png (3.04 MB, 2880x2048, T8.png)

I've been really liking Ichigeki. It's pretty aggressively uncomfy, the basic plot is a couple samurai round up some peasants and give them the bare minimum amount of training and send them out to be basically a guerilla hit squad.


just finished rereading Jojo Part 4… I love the Josuke/Okuyasu friendship so much


File: 1595994019036.png (977.14 KB, 813x1181, ClipboardImage.png)

This is amazing
Mind reading is so fun when it's not being played for drama or perversion


File: 1596266823652.png (398.41 KB, 836x1200, neet.png)

Found this manga very cute; from the comments, though, it might hit too close to home for some people.

I read all of this that's been scanlated thus far while hanging out in a hotel. Very fun manga, and also I will always always fall in love with genki brown tomboys with short hair.


Whatever happened to the one in Bokuben anyway? I seem to remember she was the only one with even a chance against the two main girls, Sensei was by far the best girl but she has less than a snowball's chance in hell.


Why are you in a hotel?


Gonna try to catch up to some of the manga I fell off from following. Namely the one in the OP because it totally slipped my mind.
I was on a mini-vacation.
