What are you reading for Manga?

    I got a new job this week. In celebration I ordered the entirety of A Silent Voice. Also, I will pre-order Berserk volume 38 and the Dragonhalf omnibus soon.



  • Since we were already talking about So Cute in this thread I just wanted to mention that if you liked So Cute, or if you like VERY VERY CALMING shoujo manga you should read Love at Fourteen.

    I mention that because I finally sat down to read Vol 6 and it was brilliant.

    Even just looking at the front and back covers just makes me take on a more relaxed demeanor:

    I could use some very relaxing Light novels to read as well.

    I got through volume 3 of So Cute it Hurts

    Read Tohyo Game Volume 3 today. Eh. I guess it was ok, though the overall outcome was predictable even if the path to get there was shaky. I still like the first volume best.

    Read the 5 cms per second manga yesterday. ( Fun fact : I accidently bought the manga thinking it was the LN. Turns out there isn't even a LN of 5cm per second, only an unlicensed short novel).

    Couldn't fall asleep the whole night and when I did fall asleep, I had freaking nightmares. I should stop getting attached to characters so much... Now I need something to heal my broken heart, so I'll read isekai smartphone.

    @Hakomari Time to read Grimgar. /s

    Paying to Win is pretty light.

    I don't really like VRMMO settings but thanks anyway(Also I am already reading SAO novels, I think that is enough VRMMO for me). And regarding Grimgar, I have seen the anime (and read some parts of the LN) so I know what you are implying. That is depressing as well but it didn't affect me as much. "5 cms per second" manga/anime and "Hakomari" light novels has seriously traumatized me.

    Hmm, such a huge list... and mostly harem ecchi.

    A lot of vrmmo, school life etc.

    It started with sekirei and then Uma no Misaki...

    I'm reading:

    My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness (Don't sleep on this if you aren't LGBT; I'm not, and I still find some poignant stuff about depression and anxiety to take away from the non-fiction narrative).

    Goodnight PunPun V4 (library loan; I just can't get into it; not in the mood for super depressing and bleak slow narratives right now; I'm in a "thought" section with PunPun's first person perspective).

    I also tried Bunny Drop and Yotsuba+, but those aren't really my bag. Yotsuba not as funny as Azumanga Daiou to me (maybe it's the longer format, maybe it's the more innocent plot?). =(

    Besides that, focused on my J-Novel novels, Sound Euphonium novel (Never watched the show), and potentially starting Mardock Scramble.



  • I'm not a fan of manga anymore, But I'm still reading Tokyo Ghoul Re: and Cooking Wars. Those I actually like the plot

    Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

    Struggling to take these out through my state wide library loan. The listings for every volume are all together, so I just keep getting volume 1. I know I should just buy them, but eh, gotta save some money if I can. =(



  • @raddevlin said in What are you reading for Manga?:

    A Bride's Story

    Now I would never force someone to read a manga or interject my own opinions...however this should be high on your catch up list.



  • @Terrence oh boy I know what you mean, I have to pay car insurance plus phone bill plus monthly subs which adds up to like 200$+ monthly. So I have no money to spend on things I want unless they are on sale which is like never the case. Nothing compared to my parents who pay like 3k$ a month lol I shouldn't be complaining tbh.



  • Saekano, Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko!, Haganai, Shishunki Bitter Change and Dungeon Meshi the last one surprised me quite a lot as it turned out to be a quite funny story.

    Yeah, I buy them on Bookwalker - they usually have a money off voucher each month so I pick up a lot of my regular manga reads there. :slight_smile: Volume 1 is cheap as well, which is how I came across the series in the first place.

    The reason it's a catch up is because I've been buying the physical, hardback volumes (along with Vinland Saga) and it's expensive so I tend to only pick a volume up when I've got a voucher or ask for a volume as a present. I really do love what I've read so far though and the artwork is so pretty! I'm a sucker for detailed artwork and unique art styles. :)

    I really am glad this is out. I related to a lot of the depression and anxiety parts of the manga. There is a follow up series that details how the author copes with her anxieties and I hope Seven Seas picks this up too.

    Is Die Wergelder worth looking into? The first volume isn't too bad a buy digital (physical was 20 bucks though; at that price, I'm out with virtually everything but an amazing looking hardcover with full color portraits).

    I am always looking for manga a bit off the board, maybe bigger in page size but smaller in series length (something like Doubt).

    Saw at my B+N, and am curious about:

    Land of the Lustrous

    The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up (rented from the library).

    Delicious in Dungeon

    Magical Girl Site / Magical Girl Apocalypse

    Galko-Chan

    There's a Yen Press sale going on at B+N, Buy 2 get 1 Free.

    Any denser manga or unique LNs worth getting?

    I've got:

    Psycome 2
    Psycome 3

    And I need a third book. I could always get Azumanga Daioh for my collection, but it is one I've been able to rent from the library.

    Also, I don't think Magical Raising Project is in the sale online. Goblin Slayer 3 is a definite no in the sale too. At least there's
    Overlord 1-4, Kieli, and Book Girl available.
