I didn't feel like doing schoolwork on Friday so I ended up procrastinating by reading Kyoukai no Rinne. Somehow I'm already on Chapter 52 when I'm usually slow with catching up or completing something.
I love all the "Rumic" humour thrown in, and I'm excited to find out what happens in the latest chapter. :3
For Halloween, I'm intentionally re-reading some spooky manga which I've read.
1. Uzumaki by Junji Itou. My favorite among Junji's works. It's creepy and daunting, and I'm just in love with Junji's art style. For those who never read Junji before, I advise you to begin with this one.
2. Zashiki Onna by Mochizuki Minetaro. This manga was dubbed as "the scariest manga ever" but to be honest I'm quite disappointed with the ending. Nevertheless, this manga is good and I'd recommend you to read this when you're in need of horror manga.
I'm also finished reading the first volume of Fuan no Tane, a nice shounen horror manga. This manga is so good even though it's not heavy with dialogue, and surprisingly creepy too. Gotta read this until the last volume.
Anticipating for the serialization next week, I read Hungry Joker one shot. It is a fun read, but I have to say it's not memorable. The only thing that really stand out in that one-shot for me is the male MC, but the setting and premise are so-so in my opinion. Hopefully the serialization would improve the story and plot so it's become more.. substantial? and become a long-lasting series.
Agreed with both ~niichan

The current 4 series I read weekly are as follows:
One Piece, Beelzebub, TWGOK, assasination classroom(?)
I read this stuff whenever they finally get a new chapter out:
Hunter x Hunter, Kamisama Dolls, Tonari no seki kun, Soul Eater & Not, Ao no Exorcist, Railgun(sorta), Kill Me baby
I plan to read these:
Dr. Slump, Ruroni Kenshin, Black cat,
Hayate no Gokuto(I AM reading it but I haven't passed chapter 100 yet, I've been using season 2 as a boost but haven't found time to finish it), Strongest Disiple Kenichi, Trigun maximum, Jo Jo
,Bakuman(after season 3 ends I'll probably begin collecting the manga...maybe...), that new series from Himoru Arikawa whose name escapes me... I want to wait and see when it will get localized though...
I'm in and out with these:
Eden no ori, Bleach(I was going to read it stubbornly to the end but I kinda got bored...), Zettai Karen Children, Detective Conan
I'm buying as the volumes come out:
Animal Land, Itsuwaribito, (again) Railgun

Lucky me, Dorohedoro v12 comes out in France at the same time v17 is scanlated...
About Onepunch, does someone know what is the Tonari young jump magazine it is published in ?
Edit: ok found it, it's a free web version of young jump.

Tonari no Young Jump is a free, online spinoff of Young Jump.
Recently I read Emma a manga by Mori Kaoru, It has a nice art and amazing plot, as expected from Mori Kaoru. Overall, this manga is impressive, and I like the ending too.
Oh Emma was recently started to be republished by ki-oon in big format. Since you recommend it I will probably give it a try
So I join the mood and started Onepunch man and it is indeed extremely funny. Thanks for bringing it in Doraku.
Still on the comedy side, I also tried Mangaka Chou Zankoku Monogatari. When you see that the scanlator is mangascreener, you know that you won't read your average manga. And if some may be rebuked by the sketchy art style, they would miss a very funny caricature of mangaka (miles away from Bakuman).
