I'm currently reading the Viz edition of Saturn Apartments, and it's grown on me immensely. I think those few scanlated (and very poorly translated) volumes don't do it justice at all. So definitely give it a proper try, and buy the first book or two.
Yes it is like Yokohama, a bit of sci-fi, lots of slice of life. And I really like the clear art of the mangaka and her round face characters.
Yeah it's really cutely drawn. I loved the couple, Sohta and Kayo, a lot!
Hum, you have to remind me. I read the serie one year ago from the library and I'm bad with names. Is that the couple with the big bald guy or the brown engineer with glasses (or another) ?
Sohta's the guy whose name everyone keeps forgetting (so yeah, the engineer with glasses); and his wife Kayo is the one with the curly hair. <3
There will be 2 special chapters of Mushichi in the next 2 Afternoon. I hope they get translated even if it is a bit optimistic.
The final round of the Community Awards have finally started! Everything will be decided now, so it would be great if as many people as possible make some time to vote in the different categories =)
Hey guys, I recently started reading Prison School, and I'm wondering if there is a discussion thread for it here ?
I just completed all the available chapters of "Oyasumi Pun Pun" ... Fucking epic.
It has been a while since a manga left me feeling like this. Such huge impact. The art is awesome too and I couldn't ask for more when it comes to the story.
I recommend it ! Go read it NAW!

I read Oyasumi Punpun and did enjoy it. Didn't reach up to the latest scanlated volumes since it kinda slowed down. But yeah, it's a very interesting read. And great art too.
I remember MH recommending Kokou no Hitou but I never gave it a serious try until today. I burned through it and I'm on chapter 97 right now. It's a really cool manga even though it tends to be so gloomy at times. The really annoying thing about it in my opinion is the time skipping and then going back to show what happened before the timeskip. Although this would be great if I was following this manga when it was being released.
Yeah I remember that manga! Great inspiring story of an unusual introverted hero, which is hard to pull off because it's hard to gain empathy from readers with a hero like Mori. And the art which at first came off too strong, but evolved into something really beautiful and precise.
The art in Kokou no Hitou looks really similar to the one from Sun-Ken-Rock imo. Especially the facial expressions and the strength of the lines and details. I didn't like the first few chapters because they looked very clean with low details and no effort on the backgrounds. But I'm reading the final arc now and it became so damn awesome ^^
