    I like this manga so far. Its still kinda plain, but it feels like its gonna get really weird soon.

    Just in case some people haven't read it yet

    Hopefully the next chapter will shed some light on some of this.

    Expect Waters to remain slow moving and mysterious. It may take a very long time for Urushibara to unfurl all of the villages secrets. She is not a mangaka who is looking for the grand gesture or intensity. Instead expect her to continue developing the themes of the mystical, folklore, our connection and sometimes adversarial relationship to nature. I love the first two chapters, not as pretty as "the Cage" or "the Light in the Eyelids" chapters of Mushishi but the potential to be is there.

    Suiiki strongly reminds me of Igarashi Daisuke's style. It's pretty obvious he is one of Urushibara - sensei's favorite mangaka.

    This first chapter was pretty boring but the 2nd was much more interesting. I'm liking the flowing between the two worlds that the main character. I'm wondering if some of the villagers are related to Chinami some how. So far I'm more interested in the backstory of the solider and the girl.
    I wish that Mushishi would finish up the scans, I think I could understand this series better if that happened. I'm also getting a Children of Sea vibe with the water theme and swimming stuff. I'm sure with every chapter it's going to get better and better.

    Mushishi finishing is a long way off^^
    Del Ray will finish this summer.

    I'm not sure as they are to worlds; rather the deep connection between the grandmother memories and granddaughter. The granddaughter seeing the near abandoned town may symbolize that the people who once lived there have moved on, even if they remember, there thoughts only occasionally linger. If that made sense.

    I'm kind of seeing memory and family connection emerging as the main themes of this series.

    It appears to be the Grandmothers childhood. There has not been a definitive link between the Grandmothers memories and Chinami's dreams yet anyways. Thus far the only thing tying them together is both feature dragon eggs.

    Ughhhh, does anyone have the link to the raw for chapter 2 (guessing it's from raw-paradise.) Managed to find an MU of the first chapter, but can't seem to find the second. Would love to read this without having to open up perfect dark or deal with hox's quality.

    the series boasts the tranquill mistique artwork that is seen in mushishi, but this one is over arcing rather than episodic. the flash back in Ch 2 was a sublime part in this manga.i hope we can see this world like thie(ie from 2 views,from Chinami 's eyes and from gannys nostalgia)
    when is ch 3 going to get scanned?

    Re: Waters (Suiiki) by Urushibara Yuki

    Of course there is a chance. In two or three years. There are only three chapters (yes, raws are out. No, chapter 3 is not scanlated, expect it over the weekend), anime talk is to premature.


    Chapter 3 is out!!


    Spoiler show


    I'm really enjoying having such an intelligent series to look forward to every month. I'm glad Hox picked it up so quickly. Having this and Vinland caught up is nice, I like series that have a lot of symbolism and enough literary content to be pondered for a few weeks.
