I started Chichikogusa, a story about a traveling medicine seller and his son. Chapter one was very promising, should be a good series.
so, after probably a year I've actually picked another series and it *cough* totally didn't have anything to do with annual exams procrastination or anything *cough*
first I picked and caught up with Fairy Tail since it is so popular... and oh my god, what a fun-servicing manga it is and I gotta say, Mashima really likes time ultimatums.
second was Dragon Ball, because... well one has to read it eventually, right? even tho I had the feeling it was over the top pretty much since ch. ~240, I still stormed through it in like 3 days. No point in judging an almost 30-year-old series I guess, it certainly has it's charm to it.
I haven't picked anything yet, but as a fan of Urasawa I'll probably give Billy Bat a shot (finally).
Caught up with Noragami since it's getting an anime and I was a fan of Alive: The Final Evolution, but well...it kinda sucks. Before the manga-ka was only in charge of the art, which is still good....the rest just doesn't click with me. None of it really.
Also read Aku no Hana, which was good. Quite disturbing at times, but interesting, especially towards the end. What sick characters.
And Gyo, a really bizarre horror by Junji Ito. The ending was lame.
I started Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, as part of the collective reading, it is quite magical, a must read for all.
I finished Wolf Guy - Wolfen Crest and Yagyou Hijouken SAMON.
I started reading Sinbad no Bouken, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou and Akametsu.
I was reading Fairy Tail but I dropped it after some more than 100 chapters. Being honest, it lacks of substance to me. I never believed the sense of belonging of the characters to their guild. Ultimately because I never knew what was the purpose of the guild. It was kind of fun, because I'm reading Yohohama Kaidashi Kikou as part of the collective reading, and it was like reading a really high quality manga to follow with something that never caught me. I finished Nausicaä and now I'm reading Shuna no Tabi from the great Miyazaki. Planning on read Sabaku no Tami and Otto Carius from the same author, and Pluto by Urasawa Naoki.
I recently finished some of Nihei's works like BLAME!, NOiSE, BLAME! Gakuen, and So On, and Abara. I liked BLAME! and a few of the stories from BLAME! Gakuen the best. NOiSE and Abara weren't anything special.
I also read the first chapter of Ano Ko no Ie. Can't really judge it right now, but it seems to be going in a somewhat dark direction in contrast to its cutesy art.
started reading Hiromu Arakawa's Silver Spoon and Hitoshi Ashinano's Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou
Read China Girl. Wasn't very impressed with it. The art was good, but the rest was rather meh. It was a nice love story, but the 'funny' parts were just a drag.
It's really rare. It seemed to be fairly popular and all, but I never met a fan or anyone who read it.
Yeah! Especially when you consider the last words of the manga, which were about life and death, were written then. Very sad.
Wolfsmund volume one just got released in English by Vertical Inc., so I picked that up and gave it a shot. It was a good read. Menacing villain. Nice action. I'll look forward to more.
Saint Oniisan started reading this out of boredom but found it to be a pretty good manga to read to pass the time

Starting on HxH to see if it's as good as people claim to be. Sadly, quality is bad.
