Wagatsuma-san wa ore no yome
By: Yuu Kuraishi and Keishi Nishikida
Genre: School Life, Comedy, Shonen, Supernatural
Serialized In: Weekly Shonen Magazine
Aoshima Hitoshi is a second-year student in high school, who wishes he had a girlfriend. One day he wakes up for an unknown reason 10 years in the future, and he is married to the prettiest girl in school, Wagatsuma Ai! How has their relationship grown from mere acquaintances to husband and wife!?
This is another serie currently serialized in shonen magazine and I find it really hilarious. Although the setting is not the most original (a looser is in love with a beautiful girl) the comedy is really great since it has everything to make good jokes (time skip, idiots) and the pervert trio is quite something.
PS: if you don't read it on batoto, pay attention that the 'special chapters' correspond in fact to the volume 1 which was released before the serie was transfered to shomag and shall therefore be read first.
A really lovely series. Do you work on it, because then I would give you my thanks for this pleasure.
I really like the DX brigade chapters, they are always so silly.
There are thousands of reference in this manga and I only catch a few of them (and the translator notes) still it stays a fun read. Also I like when the mangaka pastiches the other authors style like he did with Noboyuki Fukumoto 2 (scanlated) chapters ago.

This band arc reminds me a little of Sket Dance one which was very good.
Sylvia playing the drum was really funny. I think I like her character better than Wagatsuma so far.
double issue :
Wagatsuma-san wa Ore no Yome 48 AND 49 Raw
And here I thought for a few seconds someone was interested in discussing this serie :-(

From batoto comments
Mirai wa bokura no te no naka, or "The Future is in Our Hands"
Best comedy I read in a freaking long time! It's just so hilarious I can't stop laughing. Big plus for great characters, how their relation work and cute girl chars. For me this manga just feels natural, their personalities are just working as a factor that adds this refreshing feeling I didn't feel in other mangas in a long time, they aren't character you would want to say "I'm like him! I want to be like him!" but you feel respect how honest they are with themselves. I would recommend this to anyone who like to laugh, I started to read it from the first released scanlation and from the very beginning liked this series, I don't even know why are started to read this, maybe I have a great sense for series like this (I hope so). Read it guys! And btw author music taste is pretty similar to mine so I love the guy who wrote it, he have such a good music taste.
Last chapter showed us just how awesome Aoshima is! Being a typical MC and doing this thing Aoshima is MC amongst MCs.
This is quite entertaining.
I don't remember how I came upon it myself but I have followed it for quite some time as well and immediatly love it.
Yes Aoshima made a nice confession. He proves to have some guts from time to time. But I also like how the author don't forget their loser status. If you compare the band arc ending with Sket Dance one it makes Wagatsuma one even more funny.
A pretty decent chapter today. You'd think that he could just ask her how many times it took before she agreed to go out with him or something, but no, manga logic doesn't work that way.
After a manly move last chapter he returns to his normal self. This double spread with him crying fleeing away was really funny.
And yes I guess we are returning back to the episodic comedy chapters after this.
I'm crossing my fingers for another Sylvia centric arcs though.

The new Fujoshi group is really funny, and I'm curious about that one member whose face we haven't seen clearly yet. I'm suspecting that it's going to be another Aoshima's harem.
Yes the fact that she remains hidden makes it quite obvious she is in fact a pretty girl. Doesn't she looks a bit like Todokoro from Souma ?
She is, appearance wise. It's pretty interesting to note that this time the girl is not out of Aoshima's league, as some would say with Sylvia and Wagatsuma, so I expect more serious romantic hints here and there incoming in the next chapter.
Oh my god this page
I'm not that much into this arc so far but that made me forget all grudge.
