Didn't really care for the ending at all and while some chapters were really nice and atmospheric, overall I'd say this series was pretty average. It's impossible for me not to compare this series to...
December 05, 2013 09:54 PM
I'm actually getting kind of bored. Does it get more plot-centric later? This "evil student council" thing seems overused and isn't keeping my attention very well.
I new Shino would turn out to...

Tried the first chapter of Kentaro Miura's new mini series, Gigantomakhia. Seems promising enough.

Things are getting kind of strange...

King's moe pillow turned into a teddy bear :zomg ....then got frozen :-_-
And oh geez, Gowther is a Quincey :neutral

What day did Koe no Katachi #1 release? I thought it would sell a little more than that.
DAYUM. Sakamoto Desuga #1 is at nearly 900,000. That's huge for Harta. I wonder if it could reach 1million...

I was just about to mention that. Great villains usually have a fair amount of build up, and Noelu is just too mysterious so far. We don't even know what he really wants. That could all be wrapped up...
November 18, 2013 11:19 PM
Yeah, it was annoying to read, but I guess it was kind of important to actually see that they were talking in their own secret way, rather than just pretend they were.
November 18, 2013 11:11 PM
By the way, what was up with that backwards talk? That was super annoying to read. Was that written backwards in the original Japanese? Was it hard to translate?
November 18, 2013 10:09 PM
I wonder what King Noelu was doing? He somehow brought Luke back to life and he was sipping on some liquid. Concentrated healing spring water perhaps?
November 18, 2013 09:06 PM
New batch of chapters was pretty awesome. I was pretty impressed at the fight choreography in Lichiru and Kyousuke's fights. The mangaka is getting pretty creative.
Though...for the first time,...
November 16, 2013 03:27 PM
That's perfectly understandable. There is no magic age-changing people in real life, so the in-story situation is difficult to properly apply our morals to. I wouldn't trouble yourself over it...
November 16, 2013 10:49 AM
Eh, I think it depends on just how long he knew of her age. I think he became aware after he genuinely fell in love with her as a person. And as he lay dying, he still loved her as a person,...
November 14, 2013 06:36 PM
I like Metaru. She's super cute :shootme
November 14, 2013 06:47 AM
Yeah, I already said that in the Oricon thread. You even quoted the post. My point was that since the tank sales are low, and the magazine sales are relatively low, then it is pretty clear...
November 13, 2013 06:17 PM
I highly disagree, but I guess that's a topic for another thread.
November 13, 2013 06:03 PM
Japan needs to show Doubutsu no Kuni more love.
Is there any Oricon sales data for the author's previous work, Konjiki no Gash Bell? I recall it being at least mildly popular. I know it ran in a...
November 13, 2013 05:57 PM
From Doubutsu no Kuni. This is the most awesome weasel you will ever see:
November 11, 2013 12:04 AM
I said this too before I knew it was ending next March. I asked Kodansha USA if they would do a release speed-up, and they said it wasn't feasible. At the 2 volumes a year release pace, we will have...
November 10, 2013 09:36 AM
I like his true appearance. He's kind of handsome :^_^
I hope this "broken seal" doesn't mean he is going to curb stomp the Dawn Roar squad. They were pretty cool this chapter. I'd like to see...
November 02, 2013 05:47 PM
I just read the first volume of 'Watamote' that Yen Press released. It was pretty funny, but also kind sad. I feel bad for Tomoko.
November 02, 2013 11:09 AM
I don't like Death Note or Bakuman, but I love Obata's art. And I think he did his best artwork in Hikaru no Go. I'd like to see him work with another writer.
November 01, 2013 10:12 PM
I want to see Takeshi Obata's art again, but without Tsugumi Ohba as the writer.
November 01, 2013 02:00 PM
What's with the art in chapter 304? I know for a fact from the extras in the VizBig editions that that isn't how he storyboards, so I doubt that thick-lined pencil style is some missed deadline type...
November 01, 2013 12:29 PM
I'm glad that the scanlation will likely raise awareness of this majorly overlooked series, but I guess I'm going to have to avoid this thread from now on. I'll just keep on following the Kodansha...
October 31, 2013 01:21 PM
Vertical can't do Oyasumi Punpun because it is a Shogakukan title, so Viz has priority. Same for Kingdom, which is a Shueisha title. Plus Kingdom is way too long. Vertical has like a 10 volume cap...
October 31, 2013 10:13 AM
Hmm...Maybe I just didn't notice because I read it all in one go as soon as it started reserializing. Maybe I read it too fast. Also, you might have a little more invested in it since you are the...
October 31, 2013 09:21 AM
I was kind of wondering about this. I noticed that the art quality didn't degrade at all and the character designs seemed to be really consistent from the before and after hiatus chapters and I...
October 31, 2013 08:27 AM
Interesting...maybe something to do with those ear muff thingies(lol i forget what they are called)...
Noelu may be the king, but we did see that that one General guy who runs the school had...
October 31, 2013 06:43 AM
Yeah, Luchiru being put up in Chiwa's house was clearly arranged. And if it wasn't arranged between Majin and human, then it must have been arranged between Majin and Majin. So either Chiwa's older...
October 30, 2013 04:58 AM
They kind of do look a like...And he always did dote on Chiwa...And Stalker-kun is different from usual stalkers. He is kind of just looking out for her and not really showing romantic feelings,...

I found this cool cover of Young Jump SEED that features Nejimaki Kagyu on it:
October 29, 2013 12:32 AM
I actually keep bugging Vertical Inc. to license it in English every time they have a licensing survey. I think it has a chance too because it is only 10 volumes, it is slightly off beat, but still...
October 28, 2013 08:30 AM
I don't even think any other manga has made it to 200million yet. IIRC, Dragonball is the next best selling with around 156million as of last year.
October 28, 2013 05:46 AM
I want to swing on Diane's hair too :^_^
I have a feeling that Armando will do something important in this arc.
So they've found another Sin. I guess Melodias and gang will have to save him...
October 28, 2013 12:20 AM
Funny, I was just about to say the same thing when I saw the two quotes from you in my notifications :) I guess I just like slightly off-beat stuff that still has a mainstream appeal. So wacky shonen...
October 25, 2013 08:09 PM
Just skip two meals and you will have the $10 for a volume. It's worth it.
October 25, 2013 05:24 PM
The cover art of Ballroom e Youkoso caught my eye back when it was nominated for the Manga Taisho Award, so I'm happy to see in scanlated. The first chapter is being released in two parts, and the...
October 20, 2013 11:12 PM
Just caught up with this. Pretty standard shonen stuff. I really like the art though. It's really cute and pleasant to look at. I like the characters' noseless, round squish faces :blush , and I made...
October 20, 2013 11:05 PM
I started reading Anagle Mole. The art caught my eye a long time ago, but I didn't want to start until the hiatus was over. It really isn't as good as I wanted it to be. Pretty conventional,...
October 17, 2013 06:53 AM
My God. Volume 8 was devastatingly sad :gwah
October 08, 2013 01:15 AM
That's one fab One Piece cover. Kind of fitting that Rohan is on the cover too :verily
September 25, 2013 06:56 AM
I just started reading Samurai Papa. First chapter was cute and funny.
I also started Flag Time. I think the first 3 chapters should have been condensed into one shorter chapter, but it has...
September 24, 2013 04:23 PM
I'm kind of glad that Doubutsu no Kuni is wrapping up soon. I can't know for sure, but I have a feeling that it sells like garbage in the U.S. It only made the NYTBSL once, I've never seen it on the...
September 16, 2013 03:48 PM
If this is true, I just hope she turns out more useful/important than Orihime, and not just a "healing item", as Ginjou called her in video game speak.
September 15, 2013 07:22 PM
Interesting batch of chapters. I enjoyed the fight between Shin and Rinko of course, but Ousen recruiting for his "kingdom" is what really caught my attention. It made me think he would be a problem...
September 15, 2013 03:25 PM
I have mixed feelings on the chapter, but it was overall good.
I didn't really feel anything for Veronica's death. I wanted to, but I just didn't. I didn't expect her to die though.
September 12, 2013 05:20 PM
I loved Kokou no Hito, so I've been looking forward to this ever since it was first announce. And I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would. Amazing art too. I can't wait for volume 2.
September 12, 2013 03:11 PM
I read the first volume of 'Innocent', by the artist of Kokou no Hito. The art was amazing and the story is much more intriguing than I even expected.
September 12, 2013 03:08 PM
From 'Innocent', the latest manga by Kokou no Hito artist:http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx356/mscycyk/Innocent_v01_-_p088-089_Utopia_zpscd323147.png
