What are you reading for Manga?



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

    Has there ever been a Death Game novel where the main two characters are cold and calculating players who take advantage of the idealists and scared players in the game?

    Tomodachi Game might fit your bill. I believe I've recommended the title to you before.

    I got the first volume free from Bookwalker. I'll have to give it a real look. I think I thought Tomodachi x Monster was Tomodachi Game previously. xC

    I ended up winning some Bookwalker Global credit this month. ^_^

    I think I'm going to wait until later in February to grab some manga (Until Your Bones Rot V4? Magical Sempai? IDK), but I did grab their exclusive books, one Book Girl and the Psycome I haven't bought yet.

    I saw these on Crunchyroll's site. Is there really no way to "own" these, just subscription based? T.T

    And I just saw Momokuri and ReLife both aren't on the service anymore (dunno if either have official releases elsewhere). All digital future would be sad.

    @terrence Momokuri only just finished like xmas-ish so they had the whole thing for about 3mths then gooooone. ReLife had no updates for near on 2yrs so that at least makes a little sense, though sad. CR Manga is the devil



  • I stopped reading almost completely only 2-3 things I been reading compared to the 9+ I use to read.
    Tokyo Ghoul Re: (can’t forget those “:” 😀)
    Grand Blue
    Tower of God ( ik not a manga)

    Oh, for actually reading manga, now batoto is dead I'm legit only.

    The Seven Deadly Sins, UQ Holder, and Sweetness & Lightning on CR Manga.

    My Hero Academia, MHA Vigilantes, We Never Learn, and elDLIVE on the English Weekly Shonen Jump app. I usually read their "Jump Start" series too & try to catch up on older stuff when they periodically unlock it.

    For non-subs stuff, I own physical books for Interviews with Monster Girls, though Vol 6 has been delayed so many times I dunno when it'll actually arrive.

    I got an ebook Humble Bundle of Attack on Titan Vols 1-22 plus some spin off stuff a while back, but my reading queue is totally full with light novels so haven't started it yet.



  • I'm moving to gradually move to legit only. RIP Batoto.

    I plan to save money to catch up on One punch man and One Piece. I have more than enough savings but I have medical issues that may need my money. Alas my fun budget!

    I like Full-Time Escapist Wife and Domestic Girlfriend a lot and keep up with them both. Recently finished From the New World which got pretty interesting. I’m slowly going through Case Closed and Negima too.

    Domestic Girlfriend.

    I'm interested in Dome x Kano, but it just seems a bit long. Is the best girl / winner obvious at this point, or would you say it is still up in the air (and don't tell me who that best girl is, just tell me if it's obvious if you can so I can still have fun with the early parts of the story)?

    I didn’t think it was obvious nor out of the blue and I’m happy with who he ends up with (or at least is with now in the currently translated volume), but I don’t read too many like this so what’s not obvious to me might be to someone more immersed in the genre.



  • I don't really like that author's works, since Domestic na Kanojo and GE Good Ending feel like cheating romances. The male protagonist has intimate relations with multiple girls who each only want an exclusive relationship with him, and somehow he wants to juggle them all without hurting any of them... or himself. While the MC might not willingly enter into all of these relationships, it's rather unpleasant to watch him keep secrets and lead all the girls on with his indecisiveness while he tries to sort it all out.

    A series I find more palatable is Ichigo 100%, where, while he is also undecided and has somewhat intimate moments with each girl, there aren't any huge secrets, and it feels like the girls all have their own agency rather than being strung along by a manipulative protagonist.

    I dunno, after saying all that, I'm ready to have my words rammed back down my throat lol :P it's entirely possible I'm just looking at Ichigo 100% with nostalgia-tinted glasses. Either way, I gave up on both GE and DnK for the listed reasons, but didn't have any issues finishing Ichigo 100%.

    Donald Drumpf is on the cover of this manga. He appears to be the antagonist...

  • @terrence wtf?? is that a spin-off or sequel for Legend of Koizumi or something??



  • @Terrence So there's this Tweet on top 10 most requested anime adaptations from AnimeJapan2018. First, holy crap, Psyren ended years ago and even had a rushed ending, but it's still getting this much love?! Pretty crazy.

    Second, I think this would be right up your alley. It's a pretty unconventional death game, but gets super interesting as it keeps revealing all its cards. As I said, it's ended too, so you can read it all without worrying about waiting for the next book. VIZ released the entire series in English.

    I have the first volume of Psyren (got it for a buck from the library sale). I'll give it a chance at some point (especially if I can find the rest of the volumes in some library somewhere). Nice to see Bloom Into You Yuri on that list too.

    Right now, I got my hands full with some books I started (Polar Bear Love Story one) and some I need to start (Kigarumi Guardians, Stargazing Dog, L❤️DK, more Kiss Him Not Me).
