This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
There were a lot of really fun manga this week, in my opinion! I think my favorite would be Reverend D. The art was great, the story was interesting, it was funny and action-packed, and just really fun to read in general. My second favorite would probably be Graduale Der Walken. It reminds me of Last Exile a little (probably just because of the rogue band with its own goals in a world dominated by aerial travel), but it was also full of exciting and well-planned action, and I really liked all the characters and the general mood. Kyrie Feeding Saint's action sequences are a lot more bloody than the previous two, but the whole idea of vampires+wild west was weird enough to me to make it pretty fun to read. For Hakobune no Yukue, I feel I should mention that the stories are not _happy_ romance stories (in general), and that, despite the cover, I don't think it's a very "ecchi" work. For happy (and more unrealistic) short stories about relationships, with some supernatural elements thrown in, see Honey Clay My Honey. Also, I really liked the Red Garden anime, so I'm really looking forward to getting a chance to read that one.
We also have a note from vyc:
Quote:
Red Garden from this week is one of the best series I've written summaries for so far. The drawings are amazing and the characters seem real and lots of room for growth. The theme is really dark and disturbing which is kinda nice and fresh. Also its easier to relate sorta because its set in the US and the characters are American.
I'll check out the scanlation for Dr. Chanbelee when I get a chance - a vampire doctor - what about all that tempting blood? XD I remember there was an anime for Red Garden, but didn't watch. The premise seems interesting so if no one scanlates the manga, I might check out the anime~ Reverend D looks like a good read and it's by the mangaka of GTO. I tried seeing if I could quickly look for the prologue chapter that got scanlated, but it looks quite hard to find. I hope someone scanlates this manga...
