Hey guys! I'm Haze, Australian-Chinaman.
I have a test for school in about a week but none the less, I'm still hanging out here, looking for new manga to read.
Any good suggestions for someone who loves Shounen and seinen? Anything beats banked circular motion or acid hydrolysis. Seriously. Just look at the names of the topics. And imagine the pain students all around the world are in, as they parrot everything into their heads and vomit it all over the test paper.
I've read all of shonen jump, though. =) And I also don't like harems.
Thinking of turning this into a TL'er thread... will post anything I start working on in here, if that ever happens.

Yay! Another Aussie Chinese! Welcome to MH!
Oooo wow, read all of the WSJ series, eh? Which ones are your top 3?
As for suggestions... have you tried Deadman Wonderland, Defense Devil or that new series, Silver Spoon?
Hello Iceiphoenix! Thanks for replying! 你好！
I think that reading all of WSJ's manga shows I probably have some sort of addiction. Also, I just realised I needed to exclude kochikame... stupid triple digit number of volumes...
Top 3 WSJ? I started with Naruto and Bleach, but those have fallen and others have taken It's place:
3. (I got to this point and found that it was hard to choose...) Kuroko no Basuke?
2. Nurarihon no Mago
1. This is the only one I'm sure of. One Piece.
I have tried deadman wonderland and caught up to date. Great series. Defense Devil was interesting at the start, but is it just me or is it about to get axed?
I've never even heard of Silver Spoon, I guess I'm heading out to try it!
What bout your top 3?
Welcome again Haze, glad you decided to make a thread.
I'd recommend you give manhwa a chance. Two I'd recommend are in my sigs.
More are in the Manhwa section, the link is also in the sig.
Now that I've finished my standard advertising promo, you mentioned a test.
What subject is the test on?
Yeah, I get that feeling about Defense Devil as well. Regardless, it's been fun to scanlate it.
Have you read Fullmetal Alchemist? Silver Spoon is the new series by the mangaka of FMA. It's not your typical battle manga, but it's a slice-of-life one.
1: Sket Dance
Haha, it's nothing like your top 3!
But I do have to ask, what arc is Id up to now? I got up to the confusing past arc, and was hoping to wait till they got back to the present before continuing reading.
As for Noblesse, I only remember getting to the end of the first season. And my attention span slipped.
My fave Manhwa's are 'The breaker' and 'The Legend of Maian.' You? (Or is it just Id? XD)
Math. Chem. English. Chinese. Yeah. I'm pretty much done for, seeing how I'm in the final year of my high school as well.
Oops. I think i wrote too much. It's a bloody essay up there. =.=
Yeah, I've read FMA. Makes Silver Spoon sound even better.
Damn, only 2 chapters?
Also, thank you for your hard work scanlating Defense Devil! Are you a TL or cleaner or editor? XD
I hope this was not too long. Ah, too late, it already is.
Silver Spoon really cracked me up. The sports teacher is awesome.
Haha, no worries! I'm a proofreader and a typesetter, but I've recently done more typesetting than proofreading.
Heh, no worries, walls of text are common in these kinds of threads.
@ Haze: Well I do read more than ID . I have read the breaker / new waves, zippy ziggy, yureaka, veritas, Aflame Inferno and more probably but cant think of the other names at the moment. Recently started to read the webtoons, such as noblesse, tower of god, metronome, zusun, chaser and storm bringer.
So glad to hear you have read manhwa, especially nice to see someone who has read ID!
Most of the time, those who read manhwa seem to over look ID so thats great.
Charlie is happy.
The current scan just finished volume 19. I couldn't figure out what chapter you were on in ID since at the end of all the volume since (vol 4 or 5? I dont remember) there's been flash back chapters about ID's past.
Oh wait, I think you mean when ID traveled to the past? That part is over, he's been back from there. The story itself hasn't progressed that much though from that part.
The raws are upto volume 25 : wtf
@Icei (quoting takes too much effort lol)
Silver spoon was bloody hilarious. His reactions to the eggs lol, all he could think about was where it came from. Even though it's really light hearted, knowing the author it makes me wonder where the story is going to go...
Romi Park? Seiyuu for Hitsugaya? DMW had better follow the manga properly, now that it seems like I'm obligated to watch it. >.>
Yeah, I was talking about time travel lol. I stopped there, because I hate it when the arc is left unfinished and I'm left hanging.
But I understand why many people seem to not like Id. You have to read the first couple of volumes first before the manhwa actually takes off. Otherwise it's all just too confusing. Also, all my friends complained about Id looking too womanly. XD
Also, which webcomics a good read? While nobblesse certainly has been, the quality of the stuff on Naver varies by heaps, as I've read really confusing stuff like tower of god and some other one about some kid and a ghost.
All of WSJ?
Well, all currently running series that have been scanned, with the exception of Kochi, as it's too long.
Plus SOME older jump series.
From this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...%C5%8Dnen_Jump
there's no way I've read all the series
Its like almost zero after that part.
Noblesse grabbed me really quickly. Now I'm waiting for the next 40 chapters.
I seen people say similar things about ID. They ask if he is a guy, or confused about something, etc. Well, its explained that there's a reason as to why he looks womanly in the chapters.
I also like how the artist A.T. Kenny makes jokes or throws himself into the chapter. He is the child of Darkness, aka A.T Kenny.
Have you read The breaker new waves, squeal to the the breaker.
Another web comic that grabbed really quickly was called Chaser.
For manhwas I like, just look at the other post.
@Charlie: Chaser, eh? Ok, I'll check that out.
@Xadyu: WSJ? Naw, just a conincidence. I mean, it was just a quick way to let people know roughly what kinda manga i've read, that's all. Rather than listing exhaustively, Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tale, One peice, ZZzzzzz. But I have probably read most things you could suggest to me that aren't new or have few chapters translated.
Oh, if you happen to recommend anything to me that gets me hooked, AND it has chinese raws, you never know what might happen XD
