I own copies of nichijou(only one I've finished a volume)
, azumanga daioufucking kanji everywhere
, black cat, yuyushiki and nisekoifucking slangs everywhere
I also read Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon, Ii Orc no Hi, keijo!!!
and a few others.
Also, most of Douman's stuff are pretty good. >>136>Tonnura-San is hilarious, about a talking cat that seduces women
What the fuck is this and why am I downloading it?
By the way, the PDF is a Douman mango.
Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is such a pleasant read.
All I do is bask in shoujo manga like Horimiya and occasionally switch up with Berserk…which updated recently actually
Ichigo Mashimaro is divine yet one should be into Japanese humor.
Currently I'm reading Oyasumi Punpun, a tragical story about growing up. The manga is pure eye candy and combines the unique style of Asano Inio with computer-assisted editing for backgrounds.
- Narutaru (translated)
Kids obtain telekinetic relationships with monsters. In the first few chapters the series seems like a preschoolers manga, but soon things become quite serious with involvement of the military and people dying en masse.
- Bokurano (original)>nother work of Mohiro Kitoh where a group of kids are granted with the control about a giant alien robot, condemned to fight other robots at a high price.
- Monster (original)
I don't even know what the manga is about, but everyone said it was superb, so I bought the whole series.
- some adaptions of Visual Novels by Key (Little Busters, Rewrite) with illustrations by ZEN <3
- Teizokurei Daydream (original, that vocabulary overload)
Domina-medium VS ghosts.
- Mokke (original)
Ghosts infest humans and manifest as physical or psychological problems. Cute girls help to exorcise victims.
I found this a tough manga to get into. I had read Inio Asano's earlier work Solanin which was very powerful but I decided to come back to Oyasumi when I'm a little older. Solanin is a lot shorter and I think it would be a good rec. to someone getting into Asano.
Maybe it would be fun to compile a little list of 4koma comics together? Hidamari sketch is my favorite.
Solanin is like PunPun a manga about growing up, though the starting point is set at the end of youth and the sudden events bring it to an somewhat artificial or literary collapse, while PunPun smoothly goes from early childhood to maturity with all the lingering doubts and issues.
The first chapters made me feel really nostalgic. Punpun himself is a brilliant gap in the illustrations, enabling one to project oneself directly into the happenings.>>136>Welcome to the NHK's manga rivals the anime
Second that. Both versions are good and develop the possibilities of their medium respectively to a very high degree.
Looks like an Albrect Durer woodcut.
I'm a big fan of the Bokurano anime, do you think the manga is worth checking out?
Do you guys read manga on your phone or tablet? What apps do you use? I used one called Mangareader for a while but it got out of date, so I now use one called Manga Bird.
I use my phone to read manga so I can read when I'm out-and-about. I personally use an app called ZingBox. Always alerts me when new subscribed releases come out.
Yes! That's the one! What did you think of it?
checking out bonnouji thank you
Oh God that was my first manga, it was apparently based on a story that some Sushi Roll posted on 2ch. It was really enjoyable reading it, I doubt that I'll find anything funny and light hearted like that again.
Onani Master Kurosawa is my #1 favorite manga.
I really enjoyed Aku no Hana. Gave me a lot of chills. Punpun next.
The manga is a bit different from the movie. It's a bit more light hearted and the world building is also much better. The characters are more fleshed out. Obviously the story is longer, too. If you've ever seen the Stand Alone Complex series, the manga is similar to that. It's also hand drawn, unlike the sequel manga which is digital, and frankly looked like shit so I dropped it. To answer your question, yes, the manga is worth checking out.
oh absolutely, the art is just incredible.
I'll give it a look then, thanks. In terms of the anime, should I watch Innocence next, or the Stand Alone Complex?
Not him but Innocence was pretty meh. In the other hand I found SAC really cool, one different case every episode along with the laughing man case which is very mysterious.
Sounds good, I'll watch that first. Has anyone read Koe no Katachi? I had been reading it until it got licensed and scanlations stopped.
that's cool as fuck you're doing your own. Wishing you best of luck.
aw thanks! Anyone wanting to help can email me ^.^
>>135>Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou
This is my favorite manga ever. Gonna check your other recommendations OP.
I just finished Masamune Shirow's Appleseed, gonna read GITS next.
Where you do you guys download your scans from?
I used to use mangatraders T__T
I'm poor as hell, and I don't have any good way to acquire manga except through the mail. What's the best place online to order manga cheap, especially major (older) works that aren't in production any more?
I've always had good luck finding books reasonably on Amazon, but that depends as I'm in the US.
If you know Japanese, http://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/
is the best.
Watch Innocence if the thematic concepts interested you in the film or if you've seen Oshii's other films and are a fan of his work. In goes in to more detail and digs deeper into the existential complexities of the narrative, indulging more in Oshii's standard style of filmmaking (i.e. it's a lot closer to Jin-roh or Patlabor 2 than GITS1).
Stand Alone Complex is extremely good, too, but as a TV series it's more lightweight and focused on the action. The first season still has a very interesting and highly relevant narrative with the villain being a terrorist exploiting social memetics to spontaneously generate the attacks. The second season is also great but not as good as the first.
I just finished Appleseed, by Shirowe before GITS, it's a fun read and only 4 volumes. Less dense and more light hearted than the GITS TV show but still very interesting narrative and cool mecha. I'm waiting for GITS to come in the mail now, imported an international edition of the english translation because the first localization was censored, so idk when it'll come in.
Cool, I'll check Appleseed out.
What do you think about GITS: Arise? Is it as good as Stand Alone Complex?
looks nice, what's the name of this?
my friend showed me a cool manga about bodyswapping and some weird stuff, ill post the link tommorow
The manga is called After School of the Earth by yoshitomi akihito (known for his "weird" stories).>>429
This looks pretty neat.
I read Punpun, it was good even though it made me feel even worse. I thought it was less about growing up and more about life being a horrible thing, no matter the age.
