    What Are You Reading? What Do You Plan on Reading Next?

    This thread is for posting the manga you most recently read, are currently reading, or plan to read as well as for posting reading lists.

    What I am reading
    What I have already read

    Mangaupdates is my preference for reading lists. Unlike myanimelist, mangaupdates tracks new releases. On the release page an icon appears next to the title when a new chapter from my reading, wish, or hold list is released. That makes it much easier to keep track of new releases, and to remember chapters I missed, or have not had the time to read yet.


    Today I tried Moteki, a romantic comedy by the mangaka of Again!! The first two chapters were quite good, fans of Again!! will definitely enjoy Moteki.

    I finished 'Kokou no Hito-The Climber' yesterday and it was a fantastic ending to a fantastic manga. I really loved it. I wish it would get licensed in English so I could buy it.

    Right now, I am reading 'Silent Mobius', and to be honest, I'm really not enjoying it at all. I'm not sure I am going to be able to finish it.

    Right now I'm tied up with anime, but I've found time to start/catch up with Assassination Classroom.

    I loved reading Neuro so I was pretty excited that Matsui was working on a new series- and he didn't disappoint! I found myself hooked from the pilot and kept reading out of desire to find out what's going to happen next. Despite trying to warm up to the characters apart from Korosensei, I find the humor delightful. Now if only Iwashiro cooks something up too.

    I also read Umimachi Diary, a slice of life manga about four sisters. A family drama leavened with a nice bit of humor, the tone and mod reminds me a bit of Sakamichi no Apollon (serialized in the magazine). Thus far but two chapters have been scanlated, both quite enjoyable.

    I just finished the last chapter of 'Baki-Son of Ogre' and damn did that ending suck. Still a pretty cool series as a whole though.

    I read chapter one of Dr. Koto's Clinic, newly scanlated today. A highly regarded manga, and interesting first chapter. A promising start, definitely worth a try.

    I'm reading 'Shamo' now. It's pretty brutal, but I like it. I can only remember reading one other manga where the protagonist is such a bad person, and that's 'No Longer Human' by Usamaru Furuya. It's definitely a different reading experience when the "hero" murders his parents in the first few pages.

    Call me late, but I just started reading Yotsubato for the first time. It's a very good and cute slice of life manga, really. I can't resist to smile after I read it. I'm going to read Team Medical Dragon next time.

    It's a good manga, especially if you seek real aspect of medical world.

    Based on raDar's post in one page recommendations, I gave Orange a try. I was hooked after only one chapter. A great manga and rewarding read.

    My newest manga that I think I will label EPIC, is a rare gem from the shounen bunch, Kamisama no Iutoori , I regret that I dragged starting this, but I finally found time to explore new stuff. Bessatsu Shounen Magazine has wonderful series overall as well.

    Re: What Are You Reading? What Do You Plan on Reading Next?

    Oh no, there's not "Kingdom" in the list of What I am reading. It's because maybe only 16 episodes have been translated so far, although it's going 310 episodes. I got to say Kingdom is the best and most epic battle manga ever. I'm reading only Kingdom and One Piece (and Hunter Hunter) now. I love Kingdom best among them. It's not just my personal opinion, but Kingdom is ranked No.1 in Young Jump every week. It's absolutely epic. Someone must translate it!

    Also the anime started this April. I strongly recommend you to read the manga, but you can enjoy the anime too.

    ^Hmmm. If you say Kingdom is the best of the 3 you're reading then I'll have to give it a go. Thanks

    I recently finished Annarasumanara

    Unique art style makes it more appealing and even though drama psychological/genre's not really my thing, I couldn't stop reading it.

    Next I'll probably read Yongbi although I'm not sure it's translated in full yet in which case I was thinking of Takemitsu Zamurai.

    Re: What Are You Reading? What Do You Plan on Reading Next?

    If you have never read a Matsumoto Taiyou manga do not start with Takemitsu Zamurai. If you are only looking for historical manga avoid it altogether. As with all Matsumoto's manga, it is intellectually challenging and artistically forward looking. If that sounds appealing read Tekkonkinkreet, Ping Pong, Hanaotoko, or Number 5 first. All make for better introductions to his work. If you are looking for Vagabond, Rurouni Kenshin, Vinland Saga, or other historical action than Takemitsu Zamurai will not satisfy you.

    Ping Pong by one of masters of manga, the author says it all, it shall not disappoint.

    Thanks Kaiten and Joseph K, I admit I had never read a manga by Matsumoto Taiyou before, so following your advice I started reading Ping Pong. I didn't read all the chapters yet but it's a very interesting manga.
